Summertime with La Petite Box

Yay, the new La Petite Box arrived a few days ago, and I couldn't wait to show you! This months theme is "Summer Lovin" and they thought of everything required for my favourite season of the year.

For all of you who haven't heard of La Petite Box: It's a trendy Swiss lifestyle subscription box. The lovely team of La Petite Box is very dedicated to surprise you again and again. Every month they bring exclusive beauty products, fashion, food, and home decoration items right to your mailbox.


This is what I found in my "Summer Lovin" box:

Pompom Sandals by virgule
Aren't those the ultimate beach shoes? I love how cheerful and bright the pompoms are and will pack them for my holidays.

"Be Happy" Wristband
Another colourful item, yay! This wristband with its tassels goes very well with the sandals and completes a cool summer look. It's supposed to be a lucky charm as well. Can't tell you yet if it brings luck or not, but it looks pretty for sure. ;-)

Curaprox Black is White Toothpaste and Toothbrush
My one and only toothpaste! Since I got my first tube for a blogger review two years ago, I haven't used nother one. Unlike another kind of toothpaste it's black, but it surprisingly keeps my teeth white and has a fresh lime-mint taste.

Neutrogena Hydro Boost Aqua Gel
This face cream is indeed a hydro boost, and this is what the skin needs during the warm summer months! I mix it with a drop of face oil for even better results since my skin tends to be quite dry.

Batiste Dry Shampoo Original
Another favourite of mine, not just for festivals. This spray keeps the hair fresh on days when you don't wash it (helps against colour fading in my case). As well I love to use it as a styling tool because it adds volume and gives hold.

Ultrasun After Sun
Wow, I am impressed: I just binned an empty bottle of after sun and here comes a new one. Since my skin is very sensitive, it's essential to care for it in summer. I never leave the house without sun cream and when I go to the beach aftersun is a must. When you apply it you can feel how your skin relaxes. This one is even without critical contents, mineral oils, emulsifiers, and preservatives.

Martini Bianco & Thomas Henry Tonic Water
La Petite Box says cheers to summer and suggests to do that with a Martini Tonic. All you need for a little bit of Italian dolce vita in your life is 7cl of Martini, 7cl of tonic, ice cubes and a slice of lime. Sounds refreshing, doesn't it?

Places Magazine
A lovely designed Swiss magazine about fashion accessories and beauty since we all need something to read at the beach.

I sincerely enjoy tropical places wherever I am. When you start looking for them you realize, there are more of them than you thought. I love to visit beautiful parks, tropical gardens, and greenhouses. One of my favourite places in the world is Kew Gardens, one of the (or even THE) biggest botanical collection in the world.

Palm trees and cacti have a certain magical attraction on me. When I am in a tropical garden, I can trick myself into thinking it‘s holidays.

Therefore I love best to wear my holiday looks and this year I am especially fond of jumpsuits. This all-in-one garment is comfortable to wear, and it comes in various fits for all body shapes.

My favourite jumpsuit style is fitted at the waist and with long, wide legs. Combined with slim high heels this style fakes killer legs. A jumpsuit look doesn‘t necessarily require a lot of jewellery (especially if you go for a printed fabric) but I couldn‘t resist wearing my new flamingo fascinator. After all flamingos like palm trees too, everybody knows. Botanical garden I love you and I love to dress up to visit you!

What is your trick for a mini holiday experience?

Lovely Summer Wish List

wish list, summer, packing the suitcase
Banana Scarf  –  Rainbow Girl Earrings  –  Flamingo Neon Light
Love Galaxy Wallet  – Damn It T-Shirt  –  Pink Handbag
Flower Print Dress  –  Jelly Print  Pleated Skirt  – Metallic Platform Shoes  –  Pink Retro Suitcase

Daily Life is so much hustling, full of long to do lists and tight deadlines, sometimes it's just time for a break, time for holidays! I am ready, and this wish list is what I am missing to pack my dream wardrobe.

Holidays are the best time of the year in my opinion (and I bet you agree). But while others crave for wearing only swimsuits for three weeks probably, I feel the need to dress up brighter than usual and wear the coolest looks I can imagine. Who doesn't want to look good on the holiday pictures and while discovering new places in a foreign country?

While there are many holiday shopping lists out there, most of them don't mention the way you transport your wardrobe: I say that you can only travel in style when you have a stylish suitcase! I think instead of buying another swimsuit (while having loads already) is's wiser to invest in a proper suitcase and I am in love with this pink beauty.

All the stunning things deserve to be transported in a lovely case, and it's easier to find it again at the airport if you don't have number 1293 of the ugly black suitcases.

So please, wish list items come to me fast, my plane is taking off soon ;-)

Lovely Review: Shopping at beautycare.ch & Giveaway

beautycare.ch, giveaway, review
beautycare.ch, creed virgin island water, blogger review
beutycare.ch, creed virgin island water, shopping in switzerland
beautycare.ch, shopping, beauty products
beautycare.ch, creed virgin island water, perfume


Everybody who lives in Switzerland knows: It's no shopping paradise for beauty products because they are far more expensive than in the neighbouring countries. Retailers put it mostly on the higher salaries and the exchange rate fluctuations. Ordering from abroad is no solution since you have to bear very high customs duties sometimes.


beautycare.ch: 
More is More, unless when it comes to prices!

The founders of the online shop beautycare.ch were convinced it must be possible to get beauty products for less in Switzerland. With their network of sellers and contacts, they found ways to make this vision come true. Nowadays they sell two-thirds of products cheaper than 140 other shops. They offer hair products, cosmetics, and perfume, all for women and men. Besides the well-known big brands every good department store has on their shelves, you will find a few rarer gems as well.


My order: 
A tropical dream in a bottle

My first order was a bottle of Creed Virgin Island Water. It's one of those perfumes you don't find in every department store, and even if it got recommended to me by a friend, I never had the chance to try it. The name of this unisex scent promises a scent like from a tropical paradise, and therefore I was curious.

Just to make it clear: If you don't like coconuts, better stop reading! If you are a coconut sucker like me, Virgin Island Water will be a revelation. It's THE ultimate coconut scent, it smells holiday in a bottle, distinctive and unique at the same time. My first spritz made me fall in love with the uplifting cocktail of coconut, lime, and ginger.

While the bottle looks rather masculine, I can imagine many men would not favour it, because of the many sweet notes like vanilla, hibiscus, white rum, sugar cane and jasmine, but my girly nose is enchanted.

I found my summer fragrance, and I might wear it the whole winter as well to keep dreaming of a beautiful coconut island!



Giveaway: 

Win a CHF 50 voucher from beautycare.ch


You can't say I don't treat my readers well: I want you to have the experience of shopping at beautycare.ch. Therefore I am giving away a CHF 50 voucher.

All you have to do is to leave a comment on this post and tell me about your favourite perfume. This giveaway is open to all residents of Switzerland and will end on the 24th of August 2017.

Tropical Vibes with La Petite Box

Neubau sunglasses, tropical look, la petite box


You must all know already: I love receiving parcels, and I love surprise boxes. Therefore I was pleased as punch to find the La Petite Box Tropical edition in my letterbox a while ago.

La Petite Box is a monthly Swiss lifestyle, fashion and beauty subscription box. Every box has a new theme and is filled with selected items. If you hold the box in your hands and see how carefully and lovely it's packed, you can feel the love the makers put into their project. They deliver to Switzerland, Germany and Austria.

The box that I got was curated by Swiss fashion blogger Nissi Mendes. Nissi has Portuguese roots and is a girl who likes to travel a lot. The content of the box reflects her attitude and is right on trend with the tropical vibes.


What I had in my box:

Fashion
– T-Shirt with tropical print (the one that I am wearing in the pictures)
– NU ICONS magazine

Beauty
– Ultrasun Glimmer suncream
– L'Oréal multi-masking detox-box face masks
– Similasan gel-to-milk, mild face tonic and face serum
– Missoni perfume as a mini
– Swiss Smile dental kit
– label.m heat protection spray

Drinks
– a bottle of Mucho Mango drink by Arizona


I love this box, and especially the T-Shirt and I are going to be good friends this summer. I am happy to have the Similasan products because I bought the face cream of the same line and loved it and can't wait to include the whole series in my daily routine. A few of the other products like the suncream and the mini perfume will be very handy for my upcoming holidays.

I am satisfied and curious what the theme of the next one will be!


My Outfit:
T-Shirt: La Petite Box, Skirt: Monki, Sunglasses: Neubau Eyewear,
Earrings: Marina Fini, Octopus Bangle: Eat.Me…Do, Crystal Bangle: Kate Rohde,
Shoes: Miss L Fire

What is better than eating delicious ice cream on a hot summer day? When Magnum teams up with Moschino's Jeremy Scott to create a capsule collection of quirky comic bags! It is an unexpected union of two things that I love, and I couldn't be more excited.

Since rebellious Jeremy Scott became creative director of Moschino, I am deeply in love with how the label pushes the limits of style again and again. Their clash of luxury high fashion with pop culture and lowbrow is truly unique and fashion at its best: Bold and fresh!

The collaboration with Magnum seems logical after Moschino's Mac Donalds inspired collection a few years ago ( I still adore this collection so much and I am happy I own a bag). No fast food menu without dessert! Of course, I couldn't resist getting one of the bags. And guess what: I didn't just greedily grab one for myself, but secured one for one of my lovely readers too. Read below how to enter my giveaway.

This summer you will see me eating the new Magnum Double ice cream bars raspberry and coconut (very, very yummy) while I carry my Moschino wild beast with me. Yay!

How to win a Moschino x Magnum bag:
Simply leave a comment below this post. I will give away a limited yellow Moschino x Magnum bag, value EUR 260. The giveaway is open worldwide and ends on the 6th of August 2017.

Good luck!

Lovely Review & Giveaway: Blippo Surprise Kawaii Bag

giveaway, surprise bag, Japanese toys



The lovely guys from Blippo landed their next cute coup: The Fukubukuro lucky mystery bags. They offer not just one, but six different bags, all generously filled with stickers, magazines, plush toys, candy or stationery items from Asia. It's your choice for which one you go to join a trend which is very popular in Japan.

Each bag is randomly filled with a mix of at least 15 products from the kawaii warehouse of Blippo. The real value of everything in the bag is about 50 Dollars. The prices start from $ 11.90 and go up to $ 36.90 for the Magazine pack; worldwide shipping is included in all orders.

When my Surprise Kawaii Mixed Bag reached me, I was very curious and couldn't wait to open it. As soon as I spotted the stuffed pink bag, my excitement got even bigger, because it looked like a candy itself. But the inside was even better: I took out piece after piece of surprises, and it seemed never-ending. Cute plush items, Hello Kitty sunglasses, the most adorable fruit hair clips and two gorgeous luggage tags and much more came out of my bag. The little melon purse already found a place in my handbag, and I will label my suitcase with the lama tag for this summer holidays.

I think I rarely got so many things for less than $ 20 and therefore I can honestly recommend the lucky bags. They are lovely gifts for lovers of everything kawaii as well, and therefore I want to give one as a gift to a lovely reader.

All you have to do is to follow the instructions in the box below to participate. The giveaway is open worldwide. Don't forget to smile when you receive a parcel from Blippo :-)
