Logos for the Future


Today I would like to introduce you to an amazing digital contest and charity project powered by MSGM, the Italian fashion brand founded in 2009 by Massimo Giorgetti: LOGOS FOR THE FUTURE. MSGM’s followers are called to design an original logo graphic and to post it on Instagram with the hashtag #LOGOSFORTHEFUTURE, tagging @MSGM.

Massimo Giorgetti himself will select the 5 best logos, which will be featured in a limited edition capsule collection, soon to be launched on MSGM’s selling channels. Great news is that 100% of the collection profits will be donated to Save The Children Italia, to fund their campaign helping children in need of material and educational support following the Covid-19 emergency.

Winners will be asked for a high-res 300dpi+ scan or vectorial file for their logo submissions and will receive a €1000 gift card to spend on MSGM.it. Entries will be accepted until June 15, 2020.

I immediately decided to take part in this competition and designed a few logos that are inspired by childhood memories and the vibrant colours MSGM stands for.

Good luck!

A Contest to Win the Next (Re)Generation

Ladies and gentlemen, the next (re)generation is here and this is your chance to win youth in a bottle for three months!

Personally speaking, my beauty secret has always been the use of serums. I swear on them as they target the skin’s natural metabolism and strengthen every treatment. As I am constantly travelling and deprived of sleep, chronic inflammation – caused by outside stressors, such as pollution, UV light, and others – can be one of the reasons skin prematurely shows the typical signs of aging. As the LA MER research department discovered, through decreasing inflammation, you can effectively preserve the pre-existing collagen and elastin already found in your skin.

Therefore a decade after the launch of the beloved Regenerating Serum and inspired by breakthrough discoveries, LA MER re-engineers its cult-favorite with advanced science, new sea-sourced actives, and an added dose of Miracle Broth™ to accelerate skin’s natural renewal process. The new Regenerating Serum is formulated with plant stem cells, lightweight and quick-absorbing. With a new Metabolic Ferment, it helps skin activate collagen and boost the elastin production while reducing the appearance of evident fine lines, wrinkles and pores. This super-charged serum is free from parabens, phthalates and sulfates.

Like the rest of LA MER’s skincare line, the new Regenerating Serum is incredibly easy to use, too. To release key ingredients, shake gently and sweep 1 to 2 pumps over face and neck morning and evening. Follow with your LA MER moisturizer.

In stores now for CHF 390.00 (30ml).

While not exactly a budget buy, the new formula offers up cutting-edge ingredients from LA MER and it is absolutely worth the try. Great news is that five lucky readers get the chance to try the new Regenerating Serum for three months!

To participate, please send me an e-mail with your postal address and the header «LA MER NEW REGENERATING SERUM» to . All entries must be received until October 6, 2019. No purchase or payment of any kind is necessary to enter or win this contest. By entering this contest, entrants accept and agree to be bound by these official rules.

Contest: International Lipstick Day

Ladies, today is International Lipstick Day and this is your chance to win a SISLEY Le Phyto Rouge Lipstick that celebrates its one year anniversary today.

What makes SISLEY Le Photo Rouge so special?

It is its intensity of a lipstick combined with a balm-like sensation in an exceptional skin care formula and a stunning packaging that makes it a real beauty accessory. Thanks to the «Hydrobooster Complex» composed of microspheres of hyaluronic acid and konjac glucomannans, lips are immediately plumped up, voluptuous and smoothed.

I love SISLEY Le Photo Rouge in 10 Beige Jaipur.

What do you have to do to win one of five lipsticks?

My Look: My Prada Summer Inspiration

I love Prada. The reason is that Miuccia Prada has been a real trendsetter from her early beginnings, a strong woman with a clear vision. She doesn’t go with the flow, she is the flow.
Being a feminist, her way of dressing is a fierce force of nature. She’s saying «bye-bye» to the dated rules of how a woman «should» dress, because she absolutely understands there is no right way to be a woman. Miuccia Prada knows how to set the rules, new rules, to combine the unexpected. This is exactly what I love.

Her looks exude a very confident, powerful energy so intoxicating that it’s palpable. Here I am wearing some cute girly-like pastel colors but if you look closely at my tops, you will stop and think what the hell is this devil doing there and collectively wonder: Who. Is. This. Girl?! She is wearing a bandeau top over a striped shirt and wait… both are inside out.

My look: Printed striped cotton-poplin shirticon, and printed striped cotton-poplin bandeau top, and vintage embellished pink satin clutch, all by Pradalayered tulle midi skirt iconby D&G Dolce & Gabbanaembellished satin pumps and gold glitter sunglasses, both by Miu Miu

A girl who chooses to embrace a fierce style is saying she doesn’t care if you think she’s «cute.» She just is! And most importantly she doesn’t care if people find her «intimidating.» She’s simply going as she feels like. There is nothing in the world sexier than going as yourself.

My summer inspiration? A chill day at the pool, working, embracing my feminine side while kicking some …! We should all dress not for men, nor even for other women, but for ourselves.

WIN A BOTTLE OF PRADA CANDY SUGAR POP EdP 80ml

And the same goes for fragrances. If you like it, wear it. You are the one around it 24/7. This one «Prada Candy Sugar Pop» – 30ml (CHF 87.00) and 50ml (CHF 116.00) – has just come out in spring as part of the playful gourmand collection Prada Candy. Delicate notes of Peach and Vanilla mingle with airy Apple and Mahonial and shiny top notes of Bergamot and Green Citrus, comprising an unexpectedly substantial scent story: a sweet first impression cut with an ironic aside, Prada Candy Sugar Pop leaves the room on a high note.

I really like its sweetness, so contradictious to a fierce look. You just have to know how to do it, that’s all. And this, sweet kittens, is where I come in. Tell me about your summer inspiration (description or photo) and WIN A BOTTLE OF PRADA CANDY SUGAR POP EdP 80ml. To participate, please send me an e-mail with your postal address and the header «MY PRADA SUMMER INSPIRATION» to . All entries must be received until June 30, 2018. No purchase or payment of any kind is necessary to enter or win this contest. By entering this contest, entrants accept and agree to be bound by these official rules. The winner has to have a Swiss address.

Contest: Beautiful Summer Hair with Wella

YOUR CHANCE TO WIN SIX WELLA HAIR CARE PRODUCTS AND TWO SUMMER ACCESSORIES WORTH CHF 400!

Summer is here, days are getting longer, nights are getting shorter, the city is coming to life again and the anticipation of the upcoming summer holidays is rising.
Whether beach or balcony, whether 20°C or 40°C, the right sun care is a must. Protect your hair as you protect your skin. UV rays, ocean breeze, chlorine, and salt, all damage the hair by opening the surface, making it dry, coarse, dull and difficult to manage. That’s why WELLA offers the WELLA SUN care range for before and after sunbathing – for healthy, shiny, and summer-scented hair. And to make sure you are perfectly styled for the nights, there is the INVIGO line, which takes care of your individual scalp and hair needs, infused with caring and refreshing ingredients.

HERE IS A SUMMARY OF WHAT YOU CAN WIN:

Product set of WELLA SUN, consisting of:
Hair & Skin Hydrator (Provides long-lasting moisture to the hair and skin, leaving a seductive shimmering effect)
Protection Spray (High-performance UV protection for before and during sun exposure.)
Hair & Body Shampoo (Gently helps to remove impurities from sunscreen, salt, and chlorinated water while actively restoring moisture, leaving the hair and body feeling invigorated.)

Product set of Wella INVIGO, consisting of:
Refresh Water Revitalizing Shampoo (Refreshing shampoo with menthol that cools and helps energise the scalp, leaving the hair full of vitality.)
Deep Nourishing Conditioner (Instantly moisturises dry or stressed hair for nourished hair full of vitality.)
Volume Boost (Uplifting care spray with cotton extract that gives lightweight care, shine, fullness and light control.)

Two summer accessories (striped blanket and fruit infused water bottle) that will help you to enjoy a sunbath in style and stay hydrated.

To participate in the contest, please send me an e-mail with your postal address and the header «WELLA» to . All entries must be received until June 4, 2018. No purchase or payment of any kind is necessary to enter or win this contest. By entering this contest, entrants accept and agree to be bound by these official rules.


Good luck and cheers! By the way, I like to fill my water bottle with fresh lemon and basil leaves… such a refreshing and healthy drink!

2. With the Dyson Styling concentrator, you can shape your hair one section at a time – without worrying about disturbing the rest.
