Jeanrichard presents two new watches for Fall: the Chestnut Colored 1861 and the new Aeroscope 3 Hands.
Chestnut boldness is the Autumn theme for Jeanrichard, within the newly interpreted 1681 model, with a chestnut colored coating in PVD.
A watch that is destined to be much appreciated by lovers of the warm Autumn color shades.
Traditional craftmanship and cutting edge technology are merged in the JR1000 self-winding manufacture mouvement with three hands and date indication.
Elegant and decisive, masculine and calm Jeanrichard Chestnut 1861 will accompany all Philosopers of life on many adventures this autumn.

With its free, lightweight spirit the Jeanrichard 3 Hands is intended for those explorers of everyday life who like to get a higher and lighter perspective on things this autumn.

Moët & Chandon Excellence Award to Juliette Binoche after party

Last week after watching the film "Clouds of Sils Maria" in the Piazza Grande and seeing Juliette Binoche receiving her Moët & Chandon Excellence Award, we were invited to the after party at Seven in Ascona.
The location is absolutely stunning, on lakeshore with a great view of the lake, quai and town of Ascona.
The place was once again superbly decorated with Moët & Chandon parasols, cushions, throws and life savers! The guests celebrated the Excellence Award to Juliette Binoche with Moët & Chandon Brut Imperial and enjoyed the night by the lake.
We had an amazing time there and once again thanks Moët & Chandon for the wonderful party and great  time at the Festival del Film! See you next year!

My-sweetvalentine holiday must have!

As you probably already know in less than a week I will be setting off on holiday, so as well as packing a big pile of clothes, shoes and bags those products will be coming with me as well as some of the other trusty products that I have talked to you on my previous posts. Let's say these are products that I have discovered lately and that are now part of my beauty routine.
Some are products that I see as very summery others you can use all year long.
Here we go!

Sisley Eau Tropicale Edt

We all need a nice fresh fragrance in Summer, for this reason I love Sisley Eau Tropicale, inspired by the atmosphere of a tropical forest everything about it makes me think of holidays and summer! It has an amazing fresh floral scent with notes of bergamot, exotic ginger flower, hybiscus, frangipane and passion fruit.
It is my must have scent on my Summer Nights!

Kerastase CC Cream

I discovered this product recently but I already can't live without it!
Kerastase CC cream is really a dream product: it repairs, protects and it gives shine!
Inspired by the CC creams for your skin this wonderful versatile product does the same for your hair, giving several benefits : nourishment, radiance, correction and all in one product!
It is suitable for all hair types and also protects coloured hair from fading.
It contains repairing oils and illuminating pearls, and it feels like a luxurious hair cream, it smells great and it is not greasy.
I use it before going in the sun both on dry hair to protect my hair but also on clean damp hair as a blow dry lotion.
You could also use it to add shine on dry hair to achieve a perfectly polished look.

Kiehl's Ultra Facial Oil-Free Gel Cream

I discovered this cream on a recent trip to a Kiehl's store and I am so glad I did!
I must say I was immediately attracted to it as I quite like gel-like textures in the Summer . I feel gels somehow feel much fresher and nicer with hot weather.
This Ultra Facial Gel Cream feels really fresh, it is not sticky and has a light texture, making it the perfect option for a holiday and Summer.
It works well on combination to oily skin as it also reduces excess oil on skin's surface.

Clarisonic Aria

I have recently joined the world of Clarisonic fans and now I can understand why so many people swear by it!
After a few days of using it I had already started to see some improvements on my skin. In particularly I have noticed my pores are now less visible on my nose and forehead.
I personally use it once a day for 60 seconds, and I really feel my skin is perfectly cleaned after that. 
Clarisonic's patented sonic technology gently removes the impurities that traditional cleaning methods leave behind, and it is six times better than just using your hands.
Plus it is sleek, modern and also travel friendly thanks to USB-enabled p-link charger and a drying stand that converts into a charging station. 

Dr.Hauschka Hydrating Mask

This mask is my to go help when my skin feels dry and tight, I use it everytime I fly to keep my skin hydrated and soft . Cointaining Quince Seed extracts that helps replenish and help dry skin to retain moisture.
Nourishing Almond, Avocado and Jojoba Oils hydrate the skin while Rose Wax and  Organic Shea Butter soothe and protect.
It is a really rich mask that will protect your skin, I love it!

La Prairie Sun Protection Emulsion Face Spf 30

I love this sun protection as although it feels really light weight it has a high sun protection.  I also like it because it is not chalk at all and not greasy. It protects from damaging UV rays and its anti-oxidants protect from premature ageing signs caused by sun exposure.
I apply it on my face, neck and décolleté.

L'Occitane Frisson de Verveine Fresh Shower Gel

This shower gel is just perfect for Summer and holidays! After a long day in the sun all I want it is a cooling shower, well L'Occitane Frisson de Verveine really gives a pleasant sensation of freshness and leaves my skin delicately perfumed. A true holiday must have!

Sisley Sunleya G.E. Age Minimizing Global Suncare Spf 30

This is wonderful for the initial exposure to the sun or for those with fair or sun-intolerant skin. Sunleya G.E is an age minimizing global sun care that helps prevent dark spots, wrinkles, dehydration and loss of firmness. The texture is silky and easily absorbed.
It leaves the skin with a luminous long lasting tan and it is water-resistant.
Worth knowing that it is also available on SPF 15.

Clinique After Sun Rescue Balm with Aloe

I love this ultra moisturizing after-sun by Clinique as thanks to the Aloe Vera is very soothing on sun-exposed skin.
It feels refreshing on the skin  and I love the fact that is suitable for both body and face, so that for me is a real plus!
It  also helps repairing the damages caused by the sun and helps in minimizing peeling. Fragrance-free.

Wake up a new you with Savvy Sleepers Satin Pillowcases

Today I want to talk to you about a real life changing product.. And I am not exagerating..
Savvy Sleepers Satin Pillowcases!
Since my friend Dale, who also happens to be the Ceo and mind of the company gave me one, I will not go without it and now take it with me everywhere I go.
You really can feel the difference compared to an ordinary cotton pillowcase. You wonder why?
Well Savvy Sleepers are the world's first line of luxury satin pillowcases made from the finest satin with even a cute secret pocket. Which is very handy to hide a lipbalm, or tissues.
Dale and her team hand-picked  the smoothest anti-aging satin to protect hair and skin from breakage and wrinkles.
Sleeping on satin is a real beauty secret and  is recommended by hair stylists and dermatologists.
The pillowcases are 100% pure satin and much smoother than cotton so they will reduce friction between your pillow, hair and skin.
I found that everytime I sleep on it my hair doesn't tangle and it it stays smoother, when with an ordinary cotton pillowcase I used to wake up with tangled hair all the way.
I also love the feeling of satin on my skin, it is really soft and smooth  as it is giving me a delicate massage while I am sleeping.
Savvy Sleepers Signature Luxe Collection is available in three shades: White Russian, Nappuccino Neutral and Black Truffle.
I have the White Russian but I will soon get the Nappuccino Neutral as I love the colour and find it so classy.
It is also handy that they are available in two sizes, standard and king and are machine washable.
Wake up a new you with Savvy Sleepers Satin Pillowcases!

No more hair bad day thanks to Sebastian Brushes!

There are many types of brushes, and it is important to choose the right one based on your hair type and hair lenght, but also on the style you would like to achieve.
Here I will talk to you about two of my current favourite brushes:


I think this is really the must have  brush for all hair types, it is cushioned and has square paddle.
Perfect for grooming all hair lenghts and types although I would recommend this especially to create smooth , sleek and shiny styles without lots of volume.
Thanks to its large surface it also provides a nice scalp massage. I use this brush both on wet and dry hair.


This is the perfect brush for backcombing, teasing, flugging, feathering and finishing hair styles. It is easy to use and I feel it doesn't damage hair as a normal comb would. This brush gives you the perfect volume with very little effort! Easy to section your hair and backcombing and the same time.

The night went on with the film Clouds of Sils Maria with Juliette Binoche, Kristen Stewart and Chloë Grace Moretz directed by Olivier Assayas.
Maria Enders ( Juliette Binoche) is a successful actress and has a loyal personal assistant called Valentine (Kristen Steward) but her world goes upside down when a much younger actress (C.G. Moretz) is called to interpret a role in a new movie, the exact same role which made Enders famous.
Haunted by ghosts from the past she withdraws herself along with her assistant to the remote Swiss village of Sils Maria.

Nevertheless I had another amazing night in Piazza Grande at the Locarno Film Festival and I enjoyed every minute of it! From walking through the red carpet, to watch the film in this amazing Piazza! To see Juliette Binoche on stage was a real treat as she is a true icon.
After the movie we headed to the Moët & Chandon Party in Ascona. You will find all about it on a separate post!
