Month: July 2014

After the Montreux Jazz Festival, the next most well-known music festival in this region is arguably the Paléo Festival. It is actually one of Europe’s major open-air music festivals. This year’s edition features big names like Elton John and James Blunt. I went last Wednesday specially to watch Stromae, a Belgian singer-songwriter. The performance was… Read More »

Blaastyle x Kiehl’s

Hey guys, I am super duper excited to get you onboard a project I am working on with the US cosmetics brand, Kiehl’s. You recall that I went to Zurich a few months back to visit the Kiehl’s store. I was pampered by their staff with a skin analysis and then given samples that best… Read More »

Back in Lausanne

Pictures by Inès Monnet What would I wear if my day job were to consist mainly of running errands (like a personal assistant)? Indeed, running about town to sort out small things appears to be what I have been doing lately in moving back to Lausanne, and to prepare my vacation (of which I will… Read More »

The Slit Dress

Pictures by Inès Monnet You are seeing here the first shots that Inès has taken of me with her new Nikon D610. I love the result. You really do notice the gain in quality compared to the pictures posted previously. I wore the Zara dress I bought last week in Zurich. As the material is… Read More »

Summer Is Back

Pictures by Inès Monnet After a miserable rainy stretch, summer is back (or almost). I went for an all-black look and stayed casual with flats to attend H&M’s Denim Conscious Collection in Zurich. As if to celebrate the return of the sunny season, I brought out my panama hat! Wearing: Zara top & skirt / Chanel… Read More »

Urban

It is hidden in a charming ruelle near La Rue Centrale and you really need to look it up to find it. But it was worth the effort because I uncovered Asian surprises, amongst them, this maxi see-through… Read More »

Denim on Denim

Pictures by Marine M. It has been a long while since I last set foot downtown to chill out with friends in the afternoon. I went for a denim on denim look with a pair of H&M boyfriend jeans and a Topshop jacket. I avoid heels in Lausanne because of the inclines and cobblestone pavements… Read More »

Low Bun

Pictures by Inès Monnet Is it really summer? Snow is forecast for some parts of Switzerland!. So like many of you here, I am still wrapped up in jeans and long sleeves. Here, I wanted to show a few close-ups of my hair that I tied up into a low bun. To complete this classical… Read More »

Fit’n’tasty Detox

This Thursday I followed a one-day detox plan conceived by Fit’n’tasty. In this second detox trial, I chose the “colorful program” which includes more fruits. I secretly hoped it would be more palatable than the “green” program (composed only of veggies) that I took in my first trial. The Fit’n’tasty menu proposed a “cleansing” water… Read More »

Clarins Golden Glow

What is one secret to a good wholesome look in the summer? Add 1 to 3 drops of Clarins Radiance-Plus Golden Blow in your daily moisturizer. Protecting my face regularly with a 50+ sunblock leaves me with a rather pale bland complexion. This little concoction renders a nice healthy flush to the skin tone, and… Read More »
