  I don’t do detox to lose weight.  We know extreme diets do not work. You may lose up to 3 kgs over a 5-day regime but you end up “eating your frustration away” and  put on even more weight.  Nor do I detox for the popularly believed but scientifically unproven benefits on the body. … Read More »

  I was very happy when I received my new La Redoute pencil skirt a few weeks ago. It wasn’t easy to find a good design that was also comfortable with a good fit of the right length.  I decided to wear it to the HEAD show in Geneva as guest of MAC cosmetics. I… Read More »

  I found another solution to actually feel and look good in the cold. It’s the Goldie London shearling jacket from ABOUT YOU online store. The piece is not only warm and comfy but also easy to style. For example, I went for a flower Pyjama top (yes, as a daywear) with no other layers.… Read More »

Winter trend : Layer Up !

  Now is the time to layer up – to stay warm or to look cool.  This is how to layer up like a pro. Layering is a game of endless combinations to achieve a casualness that is actually studied.  Simply putting one clothe over another can easily go wrong and end up with you… Read More »

The Power of Accessorizing

At lost as to what to wear on a gloomy fall day?  It was how I felt when I put on my flared slit pants, white turtleneck and camel coat.  The outfit just didn’t feel right – it was too boringly classical.  Then accessories came to the rescue. I had these Minelli boots in cognac with… Read More »

  When I started blogging, I shared only original looks or how I dressed-up for special occasions. They weren’t representative of what I would usually wear . I have since moved to showing mostly simpler everyday go-to attire.  Here’s one. Once I tried these Diesel mom jeans, I have been wearing them non-stop ever since.  I love the… Read More »
