VEGAN BEAUTY WITH COLA COSMETICS

When ethical beauty brands got more buzz and popularity, cruelty-free and vegan cosmetics was a natural step up. You can find cruelty-free and vegan cosmetics and makeup brands in Geneva quite easily.

BLACK LEATHER JACKET & DARK MAXI DRESS

There is something irrevocably sexy about a black leather jacket beaten up by every season. Sun, rain, wind and snow. You name it, I have been there (with my jacket tied around my waist or draped around my shoulders). It was a splurge many years ago but when I compare it to how many times … Continue Reading

PAJAMA BOTTOMS AND SUNDAY BRUNCH? BEEN THERE, DONE THAT

Nightgowns, negligees, pajama bottoms and panties. Chiffon peignoir. Did you think that there was only one way to wear your sleepwear (which is on your way to bed)? And why are we even talking about it? Because I am one of those people who get easily bored, hence my constant change of hairstyle. I like … Continue Reading

BABY GIFT BOX – La boîte à cad’Oh

If there was a rule on new-mom gifting, I would definitely push a voucher to a spa or a custom-made jewelry on the top of the list. Talking from the experience, between the oohs and aahs that are reserved for the baby, people forget the mom, who at this stage is still exhausted from the … Continue Reading
