With email at your fingertips, nonstop group texting, and around-the-clock social media delights and distractions, actually making the time to unwind is overly important. Take your loved one on a weekend trip that will boost your energy level, get your glow back and will leave you with some beautiful memories.

Personally speaking, friends are often asking me how I can keep up with my level of stress, the constant travels and permanent social media activities. My key is taking some time off in between. So I went for a great spa weekend to the Grand Resort Bad Ragaz which is one of the destinations you can choose from.

Being just four miles from the Tamina Gorge, where the physician and alchemist Paracelsus documented the healing powers of the Bad Ragaz spring water in the 16th century, the Grand Resort is comprised of two hotels: Grand Hotel Quellenhof & Spa Suites and Grand Hotel Hof Ragaz. It continues this tradition of health and wellness with its 12,800-square-meter spa, one of the largest in Europe. The sprawling complex features ten spring-water-filled indoor and outdoor pools, three sauna and steambath zones, Asian treatment suites and a private spa.

If you are looking for regeneration from the inside out, this place sets you on the right path. The best? Some amazing treatments by SISLEY.

my_beauty_musts_sisleySome of my Sisley favorites…

As you know, I am addicted to some of the beauty brand’s products, such as the So Intense Mascara, the Black Rose Cream Mask and the Sisleÿa Global Anti-Age Cream among many other. Launched in 1976 by Hubert d’Ornano, the private skin care and fragrance company is still owned by the family. The company’s production, administration, and research laboratories are located in France. Sisley high end products are primarily manufactured in its ultra-modern factory in Blois, located in the Loir-et-Cher department.

Contest: Betty Boop and Jean Paul Gaultier

JPG Contest

Hello my dear readers! This is not an April’s fool. Today, is the day… I have something amazing for you to win! Just read further and explore that little surprise.

Have fun discovering Gaultier’s new Summer Edition fragrances, that have become an essential rendez-vous in our beauty must-have calendars. This year, the two limited editions, Classique and Le Mâle are adorned with the icons Betty Boop and Popeye for a match made in heaven.

The tin can, the Jean Paul Gaultier’s signature in stainless steel, receives a summer make-over in a striking metallic blue for Popeye and a powdery pink for Betty Boop. Gaultier tells it straight: The Gaultier can is 40 this year and is rust-free. Uh, wrinkle-free. The most everyday object revolutionized by the fragrance world hides an innate ability to disguise itself as a can of spinach. Even the label is there. Popeye won’t even notice!

Classique Betty Boop

Classique Eau Fraîche
The fragrance: a torrid, sugar syrup. An unusual blend assembled around white flowers created by perfumer Daphné Bugey.

ORIENTAL FLORAL
Top notesLemon sorbet, ginger and sugar cane juice
Middle notes: Exotic tara, jasmine and orange blossom
Base notes: Vanilla, musk and neo-labdanum

Ginger, indivisible from Classique, is found as an overdose of gourmand: crystalline, reminiscent of a lemon sorbet; sharp, yes, but sweetened with sugar cane juice. Sugar cane, with a sensual edge from the Labdanum Neo. Vanilla is also present. But musk has the final word and rushes to let the brain know we’ll be back for more. Eaux Fraiches smell of lazy summers: “Oh my – You smell so nice“!

The limited edition hits the shelves TODAY!
Classique Eau Fraîche Betty Boop (100 ml): CHF 136.00
Le Mâle Eau Fraîche Popeye (125 ml): CHF 100.00

Welcome to Abu Dhabi with Etihad Airways

Winner of Etihad Airways Competition with L'Officiel Switzerland and Sandra's Closet

On Monday morning, I boarded Etihad Airways flight EY47 to Abu Dhabi. When I left, I enjoyed a spectacular view over Zurich. The time flew, due to strong winds, we arrived one hour ahead of time. The service on board was great and I can absolutely recommend this luxurious airline.

Zurich from above

As my avid readers know, the reason why I am here is the amazing contest that all of you were able to enter in the beginning of February (for the previous post click here please).

I would like to thank everyone who participated. It was really tough for the Etihad team to choose the winner.

Sandra Bauknecht and Catherine Sarr

Yesterday, I met my friend Catherine Sarr who lives between London and Abu Dhabi. She has just launched her jewelry collection Almasika Fine Jewellery (the golden bangles at my wrist) that can be found already at Colette and soon in Zurich at Meister.

Catherine took me to the Saddiyat Beach Club, a great place to chill when you are in the area.
