SUMMER holiday!

I am planning my roadtrip to Venice, Italy with help of my lovely filofax THE ORIGINAL. On the way from Basel to Venice C and I are going to stop in Verona and Vicenza. We are going to Venice for the Architecture Biennale where we are invited to the opening of excavating by Khaled Malas. At the moment I am looking for a complimentary hotelroom to stay a day each in Verona and Vicenza. Let me know if you have a good blogger Hotel or any other good ideas. sharing is caring, right?

now let me tell you some really great news: we will be driving to Venice in the new Alfa Romeo Giulietta!! A Romeo and Giulietta photoshooting in Verona with the beautiful curvy Giulietta is a MUST! :) I can not wait. stay tuned for my photos! xx

ORIENT EXPRESS

"Orient Express is a working person’s cafe on Badaro Main, serving specialty coffee, veggie salads and gourmet sandwiches to the tasteful crowd of Beirut. Open early morning till late evening during the week in a relaxed atmosphere, the café turns into a more upbeat gathering place on Friday and Saturday night. Held by a few young passionates, this no-frills place will draw smiles on more that a few faces.”
 
this is to my lebanese and travelling friends - stop at the ORIENT EXPRESS in Beirut and grab a bite and say hi to the owner!

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!

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 &#171;&#160;here&#160;&#187;

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!
