You know that moment at the nail salon when it’s time to make a choice between two colors? They’re so similar, almost the same, but as you flip it over to check out the name of the shade; one is just a bit cuter or beyond clever so you go with it!
Last Spring I attended the LuckyFABB blogger conference in LA, (it’s coming up again this Friday). At the end, they give you a gift bag with more beauty products you could imagine, and often won’t use. However, there is one I kept and fell in love with! I used it all last summer in California and took it with me on my honeymoon and all the way back to Switzerland. It’s a lilac shade of nail lacquer by LVX called Legendaire that lasted on my nails well beyond any Essie or OPI I owned. LVX shades are inspired by high fashion and the long-lasting, chip-resistant formula is similar to gel (without the hazards) and it’s even Vegan. $16 each.
NOW I’m giving away their ENTIRE NEW SPRING COLLECTION plus a Savvy Sleeper Satin Pillowcase. ENTER BELOW – Up to 21 Entries Available!
GIVEAWAY: 1 Winner will receive the full LVX Spring 2014 Collection (above) – from left to right: Orchid/Roux/Truffle/Monaco/dOrsay/Cameo PLUS a Savvy Sleepers satin pillow case in the color of your choice.

Update – Congrats to Radmilla U. who won the Fake Bake Giveaway all the way from the Ukraine.
Do you watch The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills? This season’s fights were nastier than ever. Thanks to AppleTV, we (as in my husband and I) watch every week. It’s a bit of a shock for guys to watch E! and Bravo!, but especially for a European who’s never seen characters on TV like Bruce Jenner, Joan Rivers and the Botox babes of the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. He says most of them look like ‘angry cats,’ but Yolanda on RHOBH is his is top pick for ‘most stylish and natural looking’ even liking her white yoga pants this season. pants via Soybu
I found myself googling, ‘where to buy white pilates pants?‘ the other day when I realized maybe that’s a silly purchase. In my version of ‘splurge’ or ‘save,‘ here’s some of Yolanda’s boldest outfits for the gym, plus what do you think of white workout pants? Read more ›
When I started blogging back in 2011, I never thought my ‘travel’ posts would transition from Vegas to the Vatican. For quick weekend trips, it helps that nearly all ‘must-see’ cities in Europe are about 90 minute flight from Zurich. I love hearing ‘What to See‘ from friends and fellow bloggers who have already well traveled throughout Europe because almost every city I visit is my ‘first time.’
However, I have a special place in my heart for Italy. Sure, mailing a postcard is an adventure (we were sold fake stamps at a Tabacchi) and watch out for over-priced Espressos, but Rome and Venice are beautiful. My two best pieces of advice for traveling in Rome – bring sneakers and get ready to walk. Also, don’t be afraid to order classic Italian. I stuck to my bland, boring palate and yet had the best spaghetti al Dente Saturday night. From brunch in boyfriend jeans to an intense sightseeing tour, let’s go to Rome…Read more ›
I‘ve always been particular about giveaways on my site and this month I’ve planned, ‘March Madness for Her,’ with 3 of my favorite high-end beauty products I’ve used for years. For the next month, I’ll be doing a weekly giveaway with these products which are also perfect for spring getaways. I’ll include Savvy Sleepers – No more rough cotton hotel pillow cases that can irritate skin while you’re on vacation.
The first giveaway is my FAVORITE faux tan brand. I use Fake Bake Flawless Tan year round to skip the real sun. To see what it actually looks like, I’ve applied it for plenty of posts. From one layer to super tan (3 layers) in France last summer. Enter to win a Savvy Sleeper in the color of your choice, plus one ‘Fake Bake Flawless Travel Kit.’ Enter Below!
Nautical is one trend anchored in time as a truly classic style for all ages. Plus, it’s unisex and looks great on guys too, which not many fashion trends can claim. Case in point: Justin Bieber in drop crotch pants. Nautical is always reinvented from sexy Michael Kors ads to Ikea’s newly launched coastal bedding collection.
Last fall, I was fully prepared to hunker down for winter hibernating in puffy coats here in Switzerland – but it wasn’t the case. Rather than a serious case of ‘wealousy’ (feelings of weather envy when you see a friend’s Facebook photos in sunny California), temps have been mild, and even warm enough for shorts lately. I’ve noticed matchy matchy striped sets lately on style blogs so here’s my Spring Stripes with my 4 favorite ways to complement this 90′s nautical Zara set…Read more ›
