Last Sunday

Before heading to the Christmas sale Heiliger Bimbam in Zurich last Sunday. I love it when the skies are clear blue, the sun shines but the air is so fresh you're happy you're all bundled up. Mulled wine on top of that and that's close to perfection... 

 Have a great weekend everyone and don't forget to check back for our 3rd advent giveaway tomorrow.

Festive Nails


Why not express festive spirit through sparkly nailart?
Essie's latest winter collection includes some pretty amazing glitter nail lacquers! Each of them are laced with different glitter elements and base color like the ones shown above:
(from left to right)

I went for the dark garnet red nailpolish to start off my personal season of solemnly nails and I absolutely love the color and texture of it. Since the base color is dark, the lighter glitters doesn't show off in a pushy way, it's quite the opposite: the nails appear rather mystical through the dainty glitters.

The jet-black lacquer is the next one I'm going to try out...
Have a look at my Instagram if you want to check out more of Essie's winter creations!

Street One

Maybe you're heading to the mountains during the holidays and want to stay warm and cozy, yet also true to your style? The selections below from will work for a laid-back après-ski, chilling in front of a fire place or can be dressed up to be worn for family functions as well.


1. Chiffon Blouse Dacia: Why not go for chiffon instead of your go-to cotton button-down shirt? This checked transparent shirt adds lightness to an autmnal color palette and can be worn alone for a daring look or layered.

2. Sweater Aurelia A grey viskose-alpaca sweater is a winter basic in our book. The zipper at the back adds a twist to its classic shape. 

3. Two-Tone Sweater Elisa: One can never have enough sweaters when living in a climate this cold like Switzerland's. This black&white roundneck sweater is one of our favorites.

4. Print-Blouse Veronika: Wear this blouse tucked into a leather pencil skirt, add some gold accessories and do your nails in a vibrant red to achive a classic and feminine Christmas outfit.

 5. Coated Denim York If you love a leathery look and feel to your trousers like us, you'll love coated denim. Give your black skinny's a break and add slightly some color with these.

If you want to feel slightly dressier, than you might incorporate one of these pieces into your outfit:

1. Beanie Moja: The decent metallic print not only turns an ordinary beanie into a showier one but also adds the ultimate Christmasy feeling to it.

2. Lace-Shirt Bella: Worn without any accessories, the top appears cozy but still elegant due to the fine lace detailing and the chiffon-layer. The Bella shirt can be easily vamped up though by putting on some electric lipstick and a bold necklace.

3. Chiffon Blouse Vanda: How about glaming up with some sequins? We definitely wouldn't mind having this classy blouse hanging in our closet.

4. Bouclé-Jacket Becca: This outerwear functions either as an elegant tweed jacket or an easygoing cardigan - the bouclé yarn valorizes every look. And don't you just love the subtle frilly edges?

5. Lace-Shirt Delia: Spice up your outfit with explicit lace without showing skin! The lining highlights the lace in a very sexy way and also gives your outfit the "turning-heads-effect"!

Which item would you like to dress down or vamp up?

Visit Street One if you want to explore more clothing options and try them on in a virtual dressing room!

In the woods

Finally a new outfit post which isn't a remnant of distant lazy summer days.
 I was planning to shoot some outfits while I was away in the mountains for a weekend retreat but apparently I was too busy to check the forecast before leaving, which resulted in me being surprised by below zero temperatures and snow lying on the ground already. As I was not well equipped to brave the cold we spent most of our time in the spa or indoors, the only outfit snapshots I have are these.

I've always liked simple plaid button-down's (this outfit makes me laugh so hard right now). The newest addition to my wardrobe is this Mint&Berry cotton tartan shirt I bought on Zalando which I already wore multiple times. Definitely a new favorite of mine.

Blouse: Mint & Berry
Jeans: Mavi

Coat: Zara

Edelweiss wishlist and opportunity to win a Globus gift card

When Edelweiss, a Swiss magazine hugely popular in the French speaking part of Switzerland and virtually the only print magazine I'm subscribed to, asked some bloggers to compile a wishlist, I was all in. My selection for Edelweiss readers includes some things I have already and some I wouldn't mind at all receiving (hint hint to whoever is reading). To pay homage to my "roots" I also included an Alpine T-Shirt from this lovely shop in Zurich called Townhouse and a luxurious candle from Cire Trudon named Ottoman. Some practical outerwear, beauty stuff to pamper yourself in the colder months, gifts to create a stylish and cozy home and an interesting book to read (and look at) while sipping a  hot cup of Kusmi tea complete my ten items. Have look at the slideshow on Edelweiss to get the info where to buy the items.

Now to the fun part: Browse all the wishlists created by Swiss bloggers and vote for whichever you like best. The blogger who receives the most votes - and also of course a voter - can win a Globus gift card worth 500 CHF. Of course I'd be happy if it were YOU and me who could go on a shopping spree, so thanks in advance for your support and votes until December 15th!

Advent-Giveaway #1: Recycling Lily and Kiehl's

So, here we go with the first giveaway of our advent-giveaway-series!

Recycling Lily + Kiehl's
What do they have in common?

The Swiss movie Recycling Lily by Pierre Monnard demonstrates in a very charming yet pensive way how much garbage we produce and what it means to recycle. You can expect a refreshing movie highlighting Swiss mentality with colorful images throughout the movie. Oh, and of course there's a love story too! Watch the trailer here!

As we have mentioned this before, Kiehl's is a very eco-responsible brand we personally really love: All Kiehl's bottles are 100% recyclable and the labels are printed with environmentally sustainable soy ink. Kiehl's also rewards you with new products if you return empty Kiehl's bottles to one of their stores.


Win two tickets for the movie Recycling Lily and a Kiehl's goodie bag!
(Goodie Bag: Generous samples of Powerful Strength Line Reducing Concentrate, Ultra Facial Creme, Midnight Recovery Concentrate, Creme de Corps, Shower Gel) 

How to participate:
Leave here a comment mentioning who you'd like to surprise with a free ticket and whether you have ever used a product from Kiehl's! Also we would be delighted if you liked our Facebook Fan Page if you haven't yet. 
(Please do not leave a comment as 'anonymous')
We will choose two winners receiving each two tickets and a goodie bag. The giveaway is open for everyone residing in Switzerland and ends December 7th, 2013 at noon 12pm!
Good luck!
