My Look: Just Keep Swimming

If I say to you, just keep swimming, I am quoting a fish – a really famous fish and that is Dory from the movie Finding Nemo. If you keep swimming, you will not drown and might reach your next goal. Take action to survive, even if that is all you can do. And needless to say, do it with style!

My Look: Red & Turquoise for Spring

Red and turquoise create one of those unexpected color combinations that will turn heads. The reason? Red looks more brilliant next to turquoise than it does when paired with most other colors. Here you see me wearing this fabulous duo at a beach club in Saint-Tropez on a cloudy day.

My Look: Travelling to São Paulo

For this year’s Easter weekend, I flew to São Paulo and I cannot wait to share my experiences from this amazing, vibrant city. Here you see me at Zurich airport stretching a little before the long flight. When I am flying, I love to stay comfortable and in this case, I also went for a shirt with pockets to store the most important things close to my body. Everybody warned me how dangerous São Paulo is going to be but I have to admit I experienced it completely differently. Clean and safe. More to come soon….
