Dear Viviane, I didn't know you, but I imagine you were beautiful, strong and smart. Sadly you passed away before your time, cancer stole you from this world.

While the world is a more silent place without your laugh, your memory stays with us. You found immortality through fashion, in Jacqueline Loekito's collection Viviane's Last Kiss that is a celebration of your life. And what a collection it is: Full of colours, bold shaped and the unambiguous message "Fuck Cancer".

Here I am, Sara, standing in a (more or less) enchanted garden in your city Basel, wearing the wedding dress from your homage collection. My face is hidden behind a pink veil, so I am halfway Sara, halfway Viviane – like a ghost between the worlds. I'm borrowing you my skin for a moment, turn into a symbol of you for a few minutes captured by the camera to remember the people who loved about you. I step into your shoes and walk a path your feet might have touched when you visited your friend Jacqueline. Dear Viviane, what we have in common is the love for pink, a dear common friend called Jacqueline and the kiss of a pink veil.

 Thank you, Viviane, for letting me be the bride for an afternoon.

How much time do you spend doing what fills you with joy and how much is taken for obligatory tasks? Does the ratio feel balanced or do you wish to be less exhausted or overwhelmed by numerous demands and to-dos?

Honestly, I often wish I had more time for myself or imagine there was a second me who could take care of certain things in my life. Most of the time it's not the others who put pressure on me, but myself. I want to have a clean home, perfectly died hair, ironed bedsheets, healthy food, and perfect Instagram pictures, while being a good friend, daughter, girlfriend, neighbour and much more at the same time. Sometimes it's frustrating that it seems impossible to fulfill all the roles in my life to the hilt and I end up running after things while cutting the time I have for myself on behalf of other tasks. I don't read the book I anticipated to read for ages, I don't turn on my telly to watch that movie from my watch list or skip my weekly face mask or don't turn up at the gym. Even worse: Sometimes I forget to enjoy the fun while thinking of my long to-do list awaiting me when I come home.

But then I ask myself why don't we grant ourselves more time to just do what makes us utterly happy or gives us pleasure and peace? Because in the end isn't it that what counts? Nobody cares if your laundry is not all ironed or if your windows are spotless. So let's stop the guilt of not ticking off all the bullets on our lists and spend more time enjoying, live our lives and don't let them be ruled by to-do lists!

This post is an example for taking the time: We shot the pictures a few weeks ago when there was still snow on the ground and I got very excited about how well the colours of my hair and the coat fit with the location. I haven't shown them to you until now because of prioritizing to edit looks with gifted items. So here we are, the snow is gone and I finally I took the liberty of showing you my dream winter coat while everybody is longing for summer already. But you know what: I feel great and that's priceless. Next time, I shall do what I love earlier!

Lovely Review: Pixi Rose Collection

Pixi just took over my daily skincare ritual when their cruelty-free Rose Collection with its cute pink and pastel green packaging landed on my shelf. I am a fan of products that contain roses in general and this collection is a winner. Who needs a bachelor, I have all the roses bottled!

One thing ahead to not disappoint you: Even if the products are all called Rose, their scent is very subtle and your skin will not smell like a whole rose garden after using them. But they do a more than average job in what you wish from skincare: Make you look radiant and let your skin shine.

Let's have a closer look at the products:

Pixi Rose Cream Cleanser
The first step of skincare is always the cleansing and this cream with rose, avocado, and camomille is gentle and soothing, yet effective. It helps to strengthen and soften the skin and it's even suitable for very sensitive skin.

You'd think all cream cleansers would be moisturizing, but my experience taught me they often don't, unlike the Pixi Rose Cream Cleanser. I use it twice a day and it has become my new fav cleanser since the fresh and clean feeling it gives me is amazing. Thumbs up!

Rose Tonic
You can use the tonic right after cleaning your skin and it helps to balance the PH, minimize redness and calms the skin. I think the Glow Tonic – probably Pixi's most famous product – might be better for younger skin that needs exfoliating, while the Rose Tonic is more soothing. It also helps the skin to absorb more moisture which is great when you continue your skin care ritual with the Rose Ceramide Cream.

I am already a big fan of the Rose Tonic since it's just what I need for my skin that tends to get red.

Rose Ceramide Cream
This very rich cream is infused with ceramides and rose oil and works for normal to dry skin. It deeply hydrates and nourishes and has a very smooth texture. Its antioxidant-rich botanicals help to improve the elasticity of the skin and protect it against environmental aggressors.

Without exaggerating, this is the best cream that I tried in a while and even if my skin is completely dry the Rose Ceramide Cream makes it soft and look smooth all day in a second. Despite being very rich it doesn't cake under my makeup and my rather sensitive skin seems to be more balanced since I use it. Will definitely repurchase this!

Rose Oil Blend
A luxe, youth-boosting oil that enhances the elasticity of the skin and leaves it luminous. You can either apply two or three drops on its own or mix it with the Rose Ceramide cream. The mix of sweet almond, rosehip, jojoba, pomegranate, and rose geranium is a wonderful treatment that feeds your cells.

As a wannabe beauty guru, I am a sucker for face oils and swear on their ability to make my skin look radiant. The Pixi Rose Oil Blend is one of my favourites yet and I intend to stick to it since it's far better value for the price than the other oils that I like.


So a full win for Pixi, four products, maximal points!
