Are You A Conscious Consumer? [+Event]

Are You A Conscious Consumer? [+Event]

Conscious consumerism is a topic I am really passionate about and I love helping people change their habits from mindless to conscious, but first, let’s talk about why this is so important.

When I was a teenager, I went to College in a bigger city by train. Every day after school, we had to wait for our train to take us home and my friend Lisa and I would always checkout my then favorite clothing store.

Traveling With Intention: The ONLY Reason Why I Travel Nowadays

Traveling With Intention: The ONLY Reason Why I Travel Nowadays

Hello from Bonaire in the Caribbean, where I've been for about two weeks now. I want to talk a bit more about travel today, because I noticed people have different reasons why they travel (and no, I don't normally travel with these kinds of dresses and shoes ;)). What are your main reasons why you travel? To escape reality? To recover from all the stress you’re experiencing at work? To experience a new culture? To learn a new language?

Next Level Skin Care Luxury: Home SPA With Panasonic’s Facial Steamer

In collaboration with PPR Media Relations and Panasonic Switzerland, I’ve been testing the Panasonic Facial Steamer and am excited to share my experience with you! Who doesn’t love a Sunday morning home SPA session in your bath robe? Sundays have slowly but surely become my favorite day of the week, where I don’t plan anything into my calendar, don’t work, don’t clean, don’t wash, and mostly just have a relaxing day at home or with family.

Why I Know You Can Create Your Healthy Dream Lifestyle

Why I Know You Can Create Your Healthy Dream Lifestyle

Quick story for you, beautiful. I used to work in retail at Apple as a store manager for several years, and I still remember how stressful the holiday seasons were for me. Not only were there so many more customers, but people were also kinda stressed out all the time! They spent hundreds if not thousands of dollars on gifts for their kids and friends, but it seemed they were not doing this with joy.

3 Ways You're Putting Yourself Last

3 Ways You're Putting Yourself Last

One of the most common confidence issues women have are often the result of a simple daily habit: they put themselves last. They always worry about others first. They always care for everyone else, and often forget about themselves. Where does this come from? Most kids just do whatever the heck they feel like doing. They play the games they want to play in that very moment...

I am writing this email from my balcony in Bali, overlooking the jungle and feeling deeply relaxed and peaceful. The time here in Bali has been very healing, high vibing, amazing and wonderful.

From Shock to Love: Zanzibar's Miracles

From Shock to Love: Zanzibar's Miracles

I just came back from a wonderful vacation in Zanzibar, Tanzania, nicely tanned, relaxed and super happy! BUT on the first day of my vacation, I didn’t feel like this AT ALL! The biggest culture shock EVER! The boat from Daressalaam to Zanzibar was one of the worst experiences I’d ever had. We drove into the port with a taxi and about five people walked besides the taxi, hoping to carry our luggage for 50m and get tipped for that. We had to FIGHT to not have our bags taken out of our hands! 

What You Can Learn From Andrea Bocelli

What You Can Learn From Andrea Bocelli

On Sunday, I was booked for the biggest event I’ve ever done in my life: makeup and hair at Andrea Bocelli’s concert in Hallenstadion, Zurich (Just so you get an idea: Hallenstadion has space for over 11.000 people, and the concert was almost sold out!). I was honored to do makeup and hair for the two beautiful singers that sang with Bocelli (see one in the picture) as well as hairstyling for the guitar soloist and the ballet dancer. I was lucky enough to sneak in towards the end of the concert and listen to Andrea’s music for...
