Today is my birthday and yes, I do love having birthdays! I am honest, I love cake, a glass of champagne, surprises and being surrounded by my friends…

I still remember two years ago when I celebrated into my big day during the opening celebration of the new Audemars Piguet store in Zurich. I had the honor to be seated next to the brand’s CEO François-Henry Bennahmias, who went on stage to tell the guests that nobody was allowed to leave the party before midnight because of me. Great memories!

Let’s see what will happen today…

And if anyone is looking for a birthday surprise for a loved one, have a look at Audemars Piguet‘s newest watch launch, that was presented during SIHH 2016: Diamond Fury, a true Haute Joaillerie talisman, that reveals its mysterious character via a secret panel which, when touched, subtly unclips to show the dial beneath. It took passion, perfection, over 1,500 hours and 4,635 brilliant-cut diamonds to created this amazing cuff watch with a punk-rock goddess streak.

Tia Carrere – A Business Woman Look

Tia Carrere

Are you tired of your traditional business attire? Have you seen your classic two-piece suit too much and feel like wearing a uniform?
Why don’t you try something new, that still looks classy but makes you feel like a woman without loosing your serious business allure?

Tia Carrere with me

Tia Carrere, American actress (True Lies, The Relic Hunter…) shows it perfectly: A comfortable and appropriate silk shirt looks amazing combined with a well-tailored pencil skirt that should defintely end a little above or below the knee. The last length is very à la mode at the moment. The leather gives the skirt a very feminine and kind of sexy look. Instead of adding a blazer, you could opt for a slim cardigan.

Patent pumps will make your legs look so much longer. Keep your jewelry simple, a nice watch and some diamond studs work always very well. The most fashionable item of your look could a statement bag, like the large Alexa by Mulberry. This detail will underline your style in the best way possible.
I am sure that the compliments will be all yours and the business deals anyway!

LoL, Sandra

Happy Fourth of July!

Happy 4th of July

Today is Independence Day, commonly known as Fourth of July that honours the birthday of the United States of America and the adoption of the Declaration of Independence on July 4, 1776. It is definitely the most American of holidays, celebrated all over the country and marked by patriotic displays coloured in red, white and blue like the US-flag.

Above there is my “American Dream” consisting of a white gold case with 76 set diamonds, a rotabable bezel with 23 diamonds, 18 rubies and 18 sapphires framing a black dial: The Rolex Oyster Perpetual GMT-Master II. The list price of this beautiful watch is definitely not a steal: €53.920.- / $70.600.- but colourwise a solid salute to the 234th anniversary of the USA. What a lovely reason….

Happy 4th of July 2

There are plenty of stylish ways to wear your pride for America. Stars and stripes work the year around and are always a cool addition to your look, but please just one at a time! For today`s celebration, you can go overboard. The Converse shoes and the snakeskin lips clutch by Lulu Guinness, both with the US-flag, are absolute eyecatchers. Thanks to the big nautical trend this summer showing your sartorial spirit for the USA  is very easy and there is a large variety to choose from. I love this Alice by Temperley striped jersey dress and the maritime sunglasses by D&G.

Have a great 4th of July!

LoL, Sandra
