Welcome white smile!

The world is definetely a better place when we smile right? I think so anyway, and we all want to have a set of pearly whites to go with it right?
Certainly keeping our smile white begins with proper mouth care  as well as on a few factors:

Smoking: is one of the main factors when it comes to staining teeth. Tobacco causes some brown stains that penetrate the tooth enamel. The longer you smoke the worst the stain becomes. Smoking can also cause bad breath and gingivitis.

Food & Drink: some drinks such as red wine, fruit juices, tea and coffee can all stain teeth. Some energy drinks can also be bad in eroding tooth enamel which will cause some discolouration of the teeth. It is important to rinse the mouth after consuming these kind of drinks.

Aging: can also cause teeth to go yellow as the enamel gets thinner and this way allowing the underlying layer of yellowish dentin to show through.

So what do we have to do to maintain white teeth?

  • Brush  teeth at least three times a day and floss at least once a day
  • Consider investing in a sonic / electric brush as they might to be more effective in removing plaque and preventing stains
  • Use a daily mouthwash to enhance your dental care such as Listerine Advanced White or Dr.Hauschka Sage Mouth Wash
  • Go for regular dental check-ups 

Now to help us get that set of pearly whites here a few new products which are worth mentioning:


Black toothpaste to get whiter teeth? Yes, you heard it right! Charcoal toothpaste to be precise. This innovative black toothpaste removes discolourarion using activated carbon without abrading or bleaching while boasting oral health: Enzymes protect against tooth decay and support the salivary functions. The toothpaste has a nice refreshingly lemony taste and gives you a cooling sensation while brushing. No triclosan, no bleaching agents, no plastic particles Black is White toothpaste is made in Switzerland and can be used as a regular toothpaste with no limitations.
The Black is White toothpaste comes with an ultra soft toothbrush.


If you are more conservative and don't feel like going for the black version you can try the Curaprox White is Black Toothpaste. It has an extra mild taste and using activated carbon it removes discolouration without abrading or bleaching. Same as the black version it doesn't contain triclosan, plastic particles or bleaching agents.


Dr.Hauschka Med Sage Mouthwash helps to prevent inflammation inside the mouth and stabilises oral flora, thereby stopping unhealthy bacteria from growing. Dr.Hauschka Med Sage Mouthwash is made with antibacterial herbal extracts such as sage and myrrh and does a great job in protecting teeth and gums from diseases. These healing herbs have blended with fresh-scented essentials oils to keep your breath smelling great.


The unique formula of Listerine Advanced White fights against stain and keeps further discolouration at bay.
Three powerful essential oils combine to kill germs left behind after brushing. Fluoride helps to toughen and strengthen teeth while polyphosphate technology lift stains to give naturally white teeth. The advanced formula also combats bad breath.

Make time for your daily dental routine and enjoy a happier, healthier smile all day long!!

Black, white denim and a pop of yellow!

This outifit really puts me in a good mood and I am hoping it will have the same effect on you! 
I think it is very summery as i finally managed to try out the combination Black/ White / Yellow
Well, let's talk through this outfit one bit at the time.. first of all where it all came from? The top and ripped jeans are from Zara and I just got them the day before. Great sales finds to tell you the truth! I had been looking for a pair or ripped jeans for the Summer..well I finally found them! They are a nice shade of white, ripped, stylish and also very comfy! During my trip at Zara I also managed to score a few Summer tops and this little black number was one of them. I love it! It is simple but with enough details to make it look different. I just think the contrast between the black of the top and the white denim is always a winner! To bring a pop of colour into the outfit and to cheer the all look up I worn my Marc by Marc Jacobs yellow tote which is just perfect for a hot Summer night. My Michael Kors watch and bracelet were once again my accessories of choice. As I was heading to the Dr.Hauschka Ladies night Event held at Zurichhorn on Lake Zurich I made the right choice to go for Converse as my hubby and I had a long lakeside walk to get to the event. 
I had a great night! I don't know you but I just love Summer nights!



Jeans: ZARA
Necklace: H&M
Sunglasses: SPEKTRE

Sunday at Paleo Festival

On Saturday thanks to Switcher I had the great pleasure to attend the Paleo Festival in Nyon. It was my first time at the festival so I wasn’t really sure what to expect.
The first thing I noticed were the many families, probably thanks to the school holidays and the fact that it was a Sunday they were really numerous and the kids seemed to make the best of the bad weather playing around like mad in the mud!
It is so great that a music festivaé can attract people from all ages and bring families together.
Unfortunately the next thing I noticed was the bad turned out to be a very rainy Sunday at Paleo which made the Festival Village a big muddy field but this certainly didn’t affect the spirit of the many Festivalgoers which seem to be enjoying themselves regardless of the weather.
After all it wouldn’t really be a festival without some muddy wellies, right?
I wasn’t prepared for it but thanks to the many stands at the Paleo I got myself a not very glamourous but certainly very useful raincoat.
At least I managed to keep dry for a bit while French comedian Kev Adams took the stage.
He certainly managed to amuse everyone with his funny gigs and jokes for the best part of the night.
It was the last day of what has been a  very successful edition of the Paleo which was closed beautifully by a great firework display and the performance of David Guetta.
Unfortunately the bad weather got the worst of me in the end and I had to leave early but no worries I shall be back next year hopefully with better weather!

See you next year Paleo!

Thank you Switcher !

Dr.Hauschka Salt Ladies Night in Zurich

 On Thursday night in the occasion of the Salt Ladies Night in Zurich, Dr.Hauschka hosted a lovely event with their International Make up artist Karim Sattar who took time to present the new make up trends.  The trends for the Summer seem to be focusing on the eyes and eyebrows.
Following this trend Dr.Hauschka is launching a new Limited Edition Eyeshadow Palette which we were able to preview at the event.
The four perfectly tailored colour tones in the palette will make any woman's eyes shine!
Carefully selected colours, silky textures and gentle extracts of medicinal plants  make the Dr. Hauschka Eyeshadow Palette a true must-have!
The shades ranging from sand, light brown to anthracite can be used for a subtle daytime make up look or to create a more dramatic look for the evening. The wonderful thing about this palette is that it can be used not only on eyelids but also on the eyebrows.

The Dr.Hauschka Limited Edition palette will be available from August 15th 2015 in an exclusive packaging with a dual-purpose eye and eyebrow brush. With the palette you will also find a very useful brochure with instructions on how to create four beautiful looks using the palette. Can't wait to try out the looks for myself!

Omega European Masters in Crans Montana with Nescens

On Saturday, we were kindly invited by Nescens to the Omega European Masters in Crans Montana.
It was a glorious day and my hubby and I really had an amazing time watching golf while enjoying the gorgeous views of the mountains.
The  Omega European Masters is surely one of the most prestigious golf cometition in Europe and the Crans-sur-Sierre Golf Club is without a doubt one of the most spectacular golf courses on the Tour.
The tournament has reached its 69th Edition and has seen players such as Ballesteros, Olazabal, Montgomerie and Garcia win the coveted trophy.
This year the tournament took place in July ( 23rd-26th) and finished yesterday celebrating the tournament winner Englishman Danny Willett.

The day however wasn't all about golf and I enjoyed stopping by the Nescens' stand at the Golf Village to have a look at all the new products and came away with a few samples. 
Josy the Training Manager of Nescens took time to show me the products and shared with me some great insider tips  which I can't wait to share with you, so stay tuned for some news on Nescens' products in my next articles! It was a great mix of sports and beauty day, two of my biggest passions!

Thanks Nescens for the great day!
