My TOP 10 beauty products

It is finally Friyaaay!!! How are you guys doing? It has been a long week for me so I couldn´t be happier about the upcoming weekend. It is the last one here in Switzerland but I will just probably stay home, do some packing and chill… Anyway, I have a little confession to make: I have been cheating on beauty with travelling these past few months and it makes me feel so sad cause I really love makeup, skin care and all that good stuff. That is why I want to focus on beauty and fashion more on my blog:). So here we are: MY TOP 10 favourite products of the year (only 10?). They are all affordable, great quality, available online or in stores and pink of course… (Yup, pink obsession is still strongly on!)1. Skin care first: Garnier Rose soothing water– it is vegan, dermatologically tested, 96% natural ingredients and it leaves your skin soft, clean and radiant. I use it on a daily basis and I can already see some improvement especially with m pores. 2. It goes well with the Rose moisturizing cream from the same edition. It smells beautiful just like the fresh pink roses actually and it makes my skin look matte which is great (cause I have a very oily/problematic/sensitive skin).3./4. Another little treasure of mine are these cute nail polishes. Even though Essence and Flormar are just regular drugstore brands I looove the colour and quality of them so much. Essence Shine and Go shade 30 get ready is a really nice candy pink colour and Flormar Full color in the shade Wrap your beloved is a bright neon pink perfect for warmer seasons.5. Another obsession is definitely this perfume pen from ZARA Black Peony. It smells better than the bouquet of flowers (peonies have always been my favourites). The scent is very feminine, sweet and strong at the same time (but not that strong to get a headache). The packaging is compact and easy to take whenever you go… 100 points to ZARA for making this!6. Mario Badescu facial spray with aloe, herbs and rosewater is one of those things you never want to run out of. The mist was definitely love at the first sight. I use it all the time, whether I want to refresh my makeup during the day or simply hydrate the skin at the beach, it is perfect anytime, anywhere… And it smells soooo yummy! Also cruelty free, paraben free, great for sensitive skin too. What else can you ask for? Oh, I know… It costs less than 10$ online:D7. I have been talking about NUXE dry oils for years now but I still use them and each and every one of them is simply a must-have. This shimmery one is perfect for a bronzey look in the summer (or actually anytime). It is a multi- purpose product for face, hair and body. It consists of 7 precious botanical oils, it is 100% natural and costs around 20$ on their website. Hurry up to get yours! I am sure you will love it as much as I do!8./9. Same old same old, I know… I just cannot help it, I have been using KYLIE cosmetics liquid lipsticks for over 2 years now and they are my everyday go-to faves. I tried many different ones from the collection and all of them are great. Long lasting, vegan and affordable! We all get why is she a billionaire right? The shades Boy Bye and Angel are pinkish/nude/purpley shades which go with everything, I swear! The best lipsticks on market for sure!

10. Last but not least, I want to talk about Maybelline mascara LASH sensational (the first picture on the blog post). I tried it for the first time 6 months ago and I love it so so so much. It has a very small brush with 10 little bristles which creates a full fan effect (that is what the original description says). It thickens the eyelashes but it is still easily washable which is great. It costs just around 10$ and you can find it in every drugstore. That is all from my little beauty talk. Thank you so much for reading… I hope it was helpful and you learned something new as well:).

Take care, makeup and until next time,

💙🇨🇭❤️Road trip: Interlaken, Iseltwald, Meiringen, Lauterbrunnen

Guten Tag my lovely readers!

Today, I am going to tell you about our weekend trip to the German part of Switzerland. It was just about time to visit the most typical place of this country: ALPS. Just a little warning at the beginning: this post has a looot of blue content:)!Does this scenery not look like a wallpaper? But first things first… We (guess who I went with) left Lausanne (my temporary home) around 8.30 in the morning. It takes less than 2 hours to get to Interlaken and it is a nice chilled highway road. The forecast was not too optimistic but God or whoever up there heard our prayers out and the weather was actually lovely. I realized how much I love autumn and all of these colours around…When we arrived to Interlaken, the first thing I noticed was an amazing fresh mountain air and this wooden statue. Interlaken is a traditional resort town lying between lakes Thunersee and Brienzersee. Just look at the pictures! Is this not the most turquoise water you have ever seen? No filter, nothing, I swear!If it was summer, I would just jump in for sure…Posing because why not?We had a little walk near the lake, took gazillion photos and hit the road once again to our next destination…At least that is what we thought and then I spotted this…7c148675-050d-43f9-af8b-4a27138dd0de-1The mountains in the back truly look like painted by an artist which brings me to the fact that Mother Nature is the biggest artist… No doubt about that.And as a huge donkey lover, I had to stop by and feed this cutie pie with some apple.One of the saddest and most misused animals in the world, don´t you think?Few more shots because these colours are just unbelievable…One more sick/ill/tired smile… (Yeah, I forgot to mention that 2 days before this trip, I went for a run and due to the colder weather my body really did not enjoy it and gave me a lesson once again.)And let´s go finally!Next stop: Iseltwald, just 10 mins from Interlaken. It is a municipality on the shore of Lake Brienz (which had a similar colour of water actually), it is also a popular tourist destination especially in the winter. Just a few hotels, restaurants, friendly locals and a statue of goral again:).Then we visited Aare Gorge in Meiringen.And here we come! Aare Gorge is a river gorge with icy blue water which was created around 15,000 years ago just at the end of Ice age… Isn´t that wonderful?It is a 3 km nice walk with a slippery surface but the views are so worth it, just take good shoes!I guess I do not even have to comment on this, go and see for yourself:). I kept thinking about how canthe nature actually create this every second of this experience.The price of the ticket is 9CHF which is actually quite reasonable. There is also a little restaurant and shop in case you want to refresh yourself or get a souvenir.I am so glad I could see this place. Honestly, it is a must-see of Switzerland. I found it on Instagram few weeks ago and added to my map immediately. Do you also put a flag everywhere you want to go or already been? Well, it is my current obsession:). It just looks so organized and clear for a travel addict like me…Last but not least, we visited Lauterbrunnen. It is a village surrounded by mountains, perfect for people who love hiking, skiing and all that good stuff. Those beautiful white peaks in the back are Alps and even though I really wanted to touch the snow that day, it was just way too far and unreachable by car.What I think was way better than Alps is definitely this romantic waterfall and walk underneath.And the view from there… Not a big village, is it? Still very magical though…Staubbach Fall drops almost 300 metres from a hanging valley and it is definitely not the only one. This area is well-known for waterfalls flowing all the way from the iceberg peaks.

And we are getting to the end of this road trip. I loooooved all the places so much… I can honestly say that I explored the most of Swiss beauty now. How about you? Have you ever been here or planning to? Let me know, please:)! I am always keen on hearing your suggestions, stories, plans, destinations and all that good stuff.That is all my loves, I hope you enjoyed this little virtual trip with me and just to let you know, I am staying here (in Swiss) for another 2 weeks and then back to my beloved London:). Thank you for stopping by and talk to you very soon!
