TWO WAYS TO SUCCESS

I just came back from lunch with Carro! I had truffle-pasta and a glass of wine, it's Friday after all 🙂 I have already cleared the difficult things on my todo-list so the rest of the day will be filled with fun things, although work related.

On my way there and back I listened to the podcast with Jesper Parnevik, the Swedish golf player (episode here) and he reminded me of two simple ways to success; always do the most difficult things on your agenda first and practice hard, really hard, if you want to be good at something. He mentioned the “ten-thousand-hour-rule”, meaning you need to practice at least ten thousand hours to get good at something. I believe that’s true and there are no other short cuts to success. Happy weekend!

CASUAL FRIDAY

Today’s outfit is casual with jeans and a simple white top. You've probably noticed that I seldom wear jeans in my daily outfits. I like to be more classy in my daily dress-code, especially when meeting business people as Switzerland is rather formal.

I’m having lunch with one of my Swedish girlfriends Carro, so jeans feels like the right thing to wear, combined with some more fancy accessories like my Chanel bag. Carro is a private banker in Zurich, but right now she’s on holiday so therefore I’ll go casual. Enjoy your morning <3

♡ Simple paintings 

I love to make my own paintings (although never showed them to you, yet) and in the summer I just feel like going home to my parents house and our atelier and paint. Paintings doesn’t need to be complicated, just buy a large canvas and your favourite colour, maybe match it with your interior and just paint away!

VINTAGE FURNITURE

Good morning lovely you! I’m already on my second cup of coffee in the hope of waking up! Vintage furniture is really my favourite thing, I can spend hours at markets or in shops. Yesterday, and for the second time in a row this week I went down to our local second hand shop. It’s an amazing place and over stuffed with old things. My visit didn’t have a purpose, I just like to spend time there in between paintings, furniture and lamps and imagining where all the items have belonged to before they ended up in the shop.

I love to mix new with old, like we have done here in our living room. Our armchair is old, however renovated with new fabrics and painted in a light colour for a modern look. We thought of painting the dark table in the same light colour but after having placed it next to the armchair, adding the lamp and the pineapple, we left it as it is. These images of the furniture were taken before we added our curtains so it looks less empty now. And that reminds me that I promised you to make a curtain post, so stay tuned, I’ll keep my promise!

SUMMER MAKEUP
I really feel that the holiday mood is kicking in. The pace is slow and each day is rather simple here, altough I've got many things to do as usual. As you’ve seen on my instastories I normally don’t use much makeup in the summer, the sun makes my skin full of freckles and as I like them, I prefer to keep them uncovered.

My normal summer makeup consist of a light mineral powder; I use ID Bare Minerals in the colour Beige. The trick is to use a big fluffy brush to get a very light cover; I use a “loose powder brush” that I dip in the mineral powder one time and then swiping over my face in one go. In fact I use the same powder in the winter but with a kabuki brush (a very thick hard brush) making the powder settle stronger and covering fully. Adding to that, I use a light peach colour rouge and lipgloss in any natural colour.

My eyebrows are “naturally” perfect after having a microblading at Lash Bar (best thing ever!) and my eyelashes are extended by Demee at her Unique saloon every three weeks. To sum up; mineral powder with a fluffy brush, peach rouge and lipgloss. That’s all I use. Have a lovely day!
