Sometimes when life seems all about deadlines, full calendars, and endless to-do-lists it might feel overwhelming and all you're longing for is some me-time. This is the perfect moment to book a facial! In my twenties, I didn't grant myself this luxury, but since my first treatment, I was convinced it's worth the money and time and astonishingly helpful to regain the balance of the skin.

SkinTherapist Zurich is a place I can highly recommend because trust is important for me when it comes to my skin and the owner Cornelia Fäh has totally gained mine. Her treatments put the individual needs of her clients first and she works only with selected, high-quality products. The wonderful ambiance of her salon, which is located just a short walk from Sihlcity, does the rest. Cornelia offers facials, massages, manicures, pedicures, makeup, permanent makeup and a wide variety of holistic and medical skin treatments, such as the fire & ice facial (you might have encountered this in magazines since stars like Gwyneth Paltrow or Halle Berry swear on it).

When I visited Cornelia, she recommended me the St Barth Pureness face and décolleté treatment including a hand massage after asking a lot of questions about my health, nutrition, and habits. It's an intensive, cleansing and relaxing treatment which takes 90 minutes to purify the skin. St. Barth is a luxury line that has been creating products that unite outstanding results with an unbeatable quality for over 30 years. They create their products in their family business on the island Saint Barthélemy using natural ingredients with Carribean floral overtones to create a sensual harmony.

The treatment felt like one of the best things I ever experienced and Cornelia is a very kind and calm person. Generally, I find it very hard to relax and just close my eyes, but in Cornelia's hands, I felt so well it happened easily. One of the strongest memories is the beautiful smell of the products and how radiant my skin looked afterward. I was not surprised to hear that Cornelia has clients who return to her salon for years and hope I'll be back too! Some St. Barth products moved into my shelf as well (Cornelia's secret advice to calm my skin that tends to redness: The Aloe Vera gel with mint. I would have never tried this since it's labeled as an aftershave, but I've been using it on my face for a while now and it's a little miracle) and I now use them on a daily base, to keep that glowing skin as long as possible.

Let's not celebrate the 14th of February as a commercial event and get told by shops to buy flowers, perfume, and sweets as proof of our love! Let's celebrate love all the time and make a difference on the 14th with V-Day, the global activist movement to end violence against all women and girls – transgender and cisgender and those with fluid identities! Tell the world we don't accept harassment, oppression, rape, battery, incest, female genital mutilation, and sex slavery. We are women, we unite and we shall support each other!

According to the United Nations, one of every three women does personally experience physical or sexual violence during her life. 1998, author and playwright Eve Ensler started the V-Day movement after experiencing sexual trauma and the desire to reclaim her own body. The V stands for Victory, Valentine, and Vagina according to her. She created a play called the "Vagina Monologues" and took a step further into action to start a movement as a call for women's rights.

Since its start, the V-Day movement has raised more than $80 million for their anti-violence programs and safe houses in The Congo, Haiti, Kenya, Egypt, and Iraq. V-Day organizes thousands of events in over 140 countries.

The vision of V-Day is a world where women live safely and free. The organization is fighting for it with art, by spreading lasting social and cultural change, by giving local women who know their community a voice and leadership and by looking at the intersection of race, class, and gender to understand violence against women.

Mode Suisse: My Moments to Remember

Mode Suisse Edition 15 February 2019 Zurich Fashion Show Sara is in Love with: blogger influencer

What's hot 2019 in Switzerland? We all asked and Mode Suisse answered in their 15th edition, showcasing curated designers and schools. Hammering beats opened a show that let forget Switzerland's not a forward fashion country. Newspapers might ask where the market for this edginess and forwardness might be, I say this is just what we need: Bold inspiration, designers that are not afraid of stepping out of mainstream boredom and create for the sake of fashion as an art instead of seeing their trade as a money machine.


Let me share my favourite moments with you:

Amorphose, Mode Suisse, Toni Dreher

Amorphose: New Silhouettes for Heroines
Designer Giancarlo Bello put the audience under a spell with his feminine and dramatic collection. His play with the silhouette and his vision of women as strong yet beautiful creatures is extraordinary. Especially the red futuristic look (worn by Toni Dreher, winner of Germany's Next Top Model) who surrounds its wearer with a kind of a red shield was amazing in his freshness and visual boldness.



Jaqueline Loekito, Mode Suisse, genderless fashion

Jacqueline Loekito: Heartbreak in Pink and Red

Dedicated to a dear friend who died from cancer, Jaqueline Loekito's collection is not what you expect from a traditional mourning outfit: The Basel-based designer stays true to her favourite colours red and pink and her habit of breaking gender rules. Statements like "Fuck Cancer" and broken hearts are part of the bittersweet looks. Long lives the hope that the most extraordinary knitwear on the catwalk will heal hurt hearts!



Rafael Kuoto, Mode Suisse, fashion show

Rafael Kouto: Upcycling the future
The collection of Locarno-based designer Kouto is a wild fusion of cultures, colours, shapes, and fabrics: Africa meets the West in his upcycled creations made of mass-produced and discarded garments. It was refreshing how new old can be in a throw-away society. We need more of this as an alternative to current production!



Mode Suisse, Moujian, fashion show

Mourjjan: The Roaring Times are Back
Zurich/Mykonos-based designers Roland Rahal and Raphael Muntinga presented their creations of luxury, glitter, glam and chic. The new collection featured their take on a beaded flapper dress bringing up pictures of the Roaring Twenties and this showstopper of a dress. 20s meets the now and it's wow!



Mode Suisse, Forbidden Denimeries, fashion show

Forbidden Denimeries: A new approach to masculinity
If you ever doubted if men should wear skirts, here is the final reason why they should! Newcomer Mikael Vilchez shared a new vision of a modern man that was refreshing and far from stereotypes with us. This denim look and how it combines sportiness with feminine masculinity is what dreams are made of!



Mode Suisse, Quyny Bui, Fashion show

Quynh Bui: Fading in Vibrance
While the collection of Head Genèva alumni Quynh Bui was inspired by 19th- and 20th-century workwear and featured a lot of denim, this orange splash of an outfit excited me most. The designer combines used and new materials, giving a new life to the existing pieces. The whole collection is sustainable and wants to bring awareness to a fabric that is a major contributor to pollution.



Mode Suisse Edition 15 February 2019 Zurich Fashion Show Sara is in Love with Gerold Brenner Moschino Jeremy Scott

Last but not least: The company
Besides being thrilled by the shows, what I love about events like this is the company of like-minded fashion people. It's like a family meeting where everybody gathers together, like Christmas in fashion. I spent the eve with two of the best people in the universe, Gerold Brenner and Cherry Greta and enjoyed to see a lot of lovely faces during the eve. It was a blast, thank you Mode Suisse, please come back soon!
