Joy in every cup with Nespresso

Nespresso unveiled its limited edition festive collection, created in collaboration with renowned artists Craig & Karl. Color and seasonal delights emerge from this exclusive collection inspired by traditional sweets reminiscent of nostalgic childhood memories.

The duo injected their signature colors and patterns in the visual world of Nespresso Variations coffees Limited Edition and in a selection of unique accessories, perfect gifts for all coffee and design lovers.

"We were inspired by the aromas of the Nespresso Variations and by the idea that they 
were made with the old-fashioned confectionery in mind, "say Craig and Karl. 
"The design had to be modern and trendy; we have refined the striped Christmas cane pattern, very present in the past. 
This classic motif can evoke nostalgia to the customer, while being very contemporary
in its showy and graphic form. We also loved the fact that the stripes once
applied on the dome capsules gave them the appearance of treats".

sweets with pure Arabica of high quality. There are three Variations to taste, each with its own

MICHAEL KORS launches its new fragrance for women SEXY RUBY

Just in time for the Holidays Michael Kors launches a new fragrance and is red, sexy and very glamourous! Sexy Ruby is inspired by the link between seduction, strength and of course glamour!


"Sexy Ruby is the story of strong women. Women who know what they want and go after it".
Michael Kors

Get seduced by the reflections of the ruby crystals and discover a new side of you, more confident, more daring and more alluring than ever. The fragrance is as brilliant as the jewel that inspired it a moodern chypre that sparkles with sensuality. The temptation of juicy rasberry with Apricot NaturePrint from France open the fragrance while alluring scarlet gemstones come to life through a striking display of luscious rose petals. The dry-down notes fuse to give you show-stopping textures.
The bottle is a jewel on its own way with the dramatic red-faceted glass crafted with exquisite detail and capped by the signature Kors golden square. Very sexy, very Michael Kors!
Dress your skin not only with this faboulous fragrance but also with the Sexy Radiance Body Collection which includes some absolute must-haves for the Holiday Season.
The Sexy Radiance Collection includes a Sexy Shower Oil, a Silky Body Lotion and a Lip Lacquer in Ruby Red. 
I am in love with the Sexy Ruby fragrance so of course I had to have a lipstick to match it and it had to be Ruby Red! It is an iconic shade with beautiful luminous shine and comes in eye-catching golden Michael Kors case, my to-go lipstick for the festive Season!
I am happy to say that I have one bottle of Michael Kors Sexy Ruby to giveaway just in time for the Holidays! So if you would like a chance to win it follow my Instagram page and you will soon find out how!

My experience at "Nespresso Gourmet Weeks"

Nespresso Gourmet Weeks are now on their 5th edition, this year are held from 29th October until 19th November 2017. With the Nespresso Gourmet Weeks you have the oppurtunity to try for yourself how fine dining and coffee perfectly combine to give you a fantastic gastronomic experience.
I had the oppurtunity to try one of the Nespresso Gourmet Weeks menu at the restaurant Due Sud at Hotel Splendide Royal Lugano last weekend and it was truly delightful. Chef Domenico Ruberto really delighted us with a creative menu with exquisite dishes and notes of Nespresso Grand Crus.
The end of course to a delicious meal was of course a cup of a exclusive selection Kilimanjaro Peaberry for me and a stronger Nepal Lamjung for my husband. You still have time to book your lunch and/or dinner at your chosen restaurant by quoting "Nespresso Gourmet Weeks" at time of booking.

Thanks Nespresso for the great night!


A beautiful Fall look with MAC Studio Fix

Last Saturday I went for yet another great makeup session at MAC Cosmetics Lugano and it was all about Studio Fix. Sheila MAC Make Up Artist and I decided to go for a Fall look with burgundy lips and eyes in shades of brown and copper.
She started by applying the Prep + Prime Natural Radiance as a base. This is a primer which is really great for oily and combination skin. It hydrates skin and primes it to improve the application of foundation. It also controls oil and makes your skin really smooth.
For the foundation we went of course for Studio Fix Fluid SPF 15 in my case in shade NC20. Studio Fix Fluid is just a great foundation which really suit anyone and it is available in array of shades. It gives you a medium to a full coverage which is buildable and all with a SPF 15. It is very easy to blend, it is comfortable to wear and it is also long-lasting. It covers imperfections well and also minimize the appearance of pores giving you a smooth finish. She then went to use Blot Powder Pressed in Medium Dark. This is an oil-controlling powder that helps to set foundation and gives you a natural finish.
Sheila also used the Pro Concealer and Correct Palette/ Medium. This is a palette with four concealers and two correctors shades that can be used alone or mixed together to match your skintone. It helps to conceal imperfections, dark circles, blemishes and even tatoos!
On my eyes we went for the Snow Ball Eye Compact Rose Gold. This palette will take you right through the Holidays with icy layer of pinks, nudes and copper in a beautiful silver metallic packaging. Loving my Fall look!



























Thanks MAC Cosmetics for the great make up!
