SHISEIDO ULTIMUNE
power infusing concentrate

I was at the pressconference of SHISEIDO in Zurich in June 2014 and I got a lot of information regarding the newest product: ULTIMUNE that will be launched in fall 2014! so what I learned is that the power of the skin lies in the skins immunity and that it is being dammaged by environmental threats and stress and emotional stress. I have been using SHISEIDO ULTIMUNE for the last thee weeks and I really like it.I will continue to use it and will get back to you and will tell you more.

The designer of the bottle is called TAISUKE KIKUCHI and he created a very minimaliste line of beauty. I love his drawings!

"A skincare product with infinite properties

Now there is a perfect solution: ULTIMUNE, your skin’s guardian. It does so much more than just repair visible damage. It is the first product to reactivate the skin’s multi-defensive power to resist, protect, regenerate and strengthen against harmful aggressors. It is the power your skin needs to visibly slow down the ageing process for as long as possible.

Ultimune activates 4 powers within your skin:
    •    The power to RESIST
    •    The power to PROTECT 
    •    The power to REGENERATE
    •    The power to STRENGHTEN

With Ultimune your skin rediscovers its ultimate, timeless beauty: perfect, flawless, trouble-free skin, glowing with health and free from all visible signs of ageing. Its beauty potential is outstanding. With Ultimune, every woman, regardless of her age, origin or skin type, can experience the unexploited potential of her own skin.”

SHISEIDO because the beauty is already in you!

I found it at the boutique BAUM in Basel and it was on SALE 189 CHF instead of 789 CHF - thanks mom for buying it for me! the shoes go perfectly with a pencilskirt, skinny jeans, jumpsuit, a black dress - basically with everything! they are quiet high but because of their block heels the shoes are very comfy to walk in.

STUDIO NAIL LACQUER by Marian Newman 
texturize clear leather-effect topcoathighlight sheer blue pearl transformer liquid pigment - pink pearl sheer pink pearl transformer liquid pigment - green pearl sheer green pearl transformer liquid pigment - gold pearl sheer gold pearl transformer shadow sheer blackening topcoat skin light peach beige (cream)quiet time being nude (cream) rebel mid-tone cream plum (cream)
so what did I get to try and play around with? I got the shadow sheer blackening topcoat and this little bugger darkens almost every nailpolish color. I tried it with several colors and I think it needs at least two layers of nailpolish to really darken the tone. I think it is really nice to have a darker accent nail. so what did I do?I painted all my nails in one color and then I choose an accent nail, usually I always go for the ring finger and add three layers of the shadow sheer blackening topcoat - thats it! 
I went to the maccosmetics booth inside Globus and was able to play a bit with the whole collection. One makes the nailpolish look pinker, one makes it look greener and one makes it look golden or blue. then there is one that makes the nailpolish look like leather. there are three colors that can be used as a base but let me tell you, they work with any kind of nailpolish as a base. :) have a look at the collection « here »

Chloé my LOVE STORY

something new! LOVE STORY eau de parfum / shower gel / body lotion are available from September 2014! as you may know I am a huge CHLOÉ fan and I love their fragrances and also their fashion collection and when I got to try this lovely new LOVE STORY eau de parfum before its launch date I was on cloud number nine! thank you very much! I love it and I feel loved! such a fresh romantic scent - ready to seduce fall!

so what is LOVE STORY?

"a night in paris. sparkling lights and music. a crowd. and her. the night is hers he sees her immediately. eyes meet. he’s fascinated. her femininity, her natural elegance. an allure touched by freedom and grace. she is clémence poésy. luminous under the lens of mélanie laurent. love story is a modern story of seduction. her. and him. their paths cross, a few mumbled words, a beautiful moment. essence of seduction in the hollow of her neck, a charm. the freshness of neroli illuminates her, amongst others. he sees only her. the sensuality of orange blossom attracts him, powerfully. the stirring femininity of jasmine stephanotis, the flower of happiness, makes her more irresistible than ever. on her skin, cedar vibrates with flair. a floral love story, fresh and sexy. an unforgettable essence of seduction. they are together, more alive than ever. the city is theirs. the night too. he takes her by the hand. the sound of her heels on the pavement. their laughter echoing against the walls. stolen fragments of their love story. as a symbol of their affection, a padlock. her fragrance. he tries to grab it but it is hers. a precious jewel crowned with cold metal, magnified by the iconic pleated glass. the casual femininity of a ribbon knotted nonchalantly on its side. it says it all about her . it signs the modern and refined chloé attitude. first light of day a barge moored under the pont des arts. his place. as he opens the door, she disappears. because above all she is free! she loves life, love… will she be back? her fragrance floats in the air. the scent of a love story. love story is the expression of a free woman. the chloé woman. clare waight keller, clémence poesy, mélanie laurent, inez van lamsweerde, anne flipo … each brought her vision to tell this new story. a declaration of femininity. a proclamation of freedom.”

HAPPY MONDAY

I wanna show you something NEW to me and something NICE.
the brand VIONIC - have you heard about it?

http://d2uu5jtehvxu6t.cloudfront.net/media/catalog/product/cache/14/small_image/328x270/9df78eab33525d08d6e5fb8d27136e95/4/8/48selena_silo_tanlprd_1.jpg
I was so lucky to choose one of their sandals and really liked the SELENA model with the animal print. The advantage of these sandals is the FMT technology for a natural relief! this orthotic technology helps reduce over-pronation, which can relieve associated common pains. And I have to admit that these are the most comfortable sandals I have ever worn! I am looking forward to many sunny days to walk in my SELENA sandals!

ADVOLAT
a watch brand from BASEL - isn’t that amazing?
I recently discovered these gorgeous watches when I was strolling thru Clarastrasse in Basel. Next to the Basilisk photography shop there is a shopwindow with some pieces of their collection. It was the first time I have heard of ADVOLAT and I really liked the fact that they are from Basel.

Let me tell you a bit more about ADVOLAT and their philosophy, thats what I found on their website:

"Switzerland is home to some of the best designers and makers of watches, Basel in Switzerland is home to the world’s biggest and most famous watch fair BaselWorld, from Basel comes ADVOLATOriginal, the latest Swiss brand of finest watchmaking:

ADVOLATOriginal. UNIQUE TIMEPIECES. STRICTLY LIMITED.

ADVOLATOriginal watches are strictly limited to a maximum of either 888 or 88 watches for every model worldwide, depending on the reference number. Every watch is unique and carries its individual number engraved on the caseback. Some models are completely Swiss Made. All have been handcrafted to the highest Swiss quality standards. All have been tested twice before delivery.”

CITY
chronograph limited edition BAUHAUS DESIGN


I really like the BAUHAUS design CITY watch and the same watch can be worn differently - with a black watch strap or with a brown one. for CHF 49.00 you can purchase the brown leather watch strap and easily change it by yourself when ever you want. soon I will show you photos with the two different watch straps - a more elegant and a more casual version - stay tuned!

Kérastase DISCIPLINE

thank you for letting me try the Kérastase DISCIPLINE treatment at KEN&SEM in Basel. It was a blast! I have already introduced the new line - click here to read more »

so what did they do?

they wash my hair with the Bain Fluidealiste 250ml/ 29 CHF then they put the MASKERATINE treatment. section by section they add the product from the roots to the ends - then they blowdry it and afterwards they take a flat iron (180°C) to lock the product in the hair. then they wash the MASKERATINE out and add the Soin N2 - blow dry again and style my hair with the Fluidissime 150ml/ 39 CHF - DONE!

so I really felt a difference in my hair structure, it was somehow more even and less frizzy. I LIKE!
