Thanks a lot for your amazing response and don’t forget to subscribe to my channel for more video updates from me :) I’m gonna try to make this a weekly thing, let’s see if I can do it!

The coziest sweater ever

  • DSC_1283

The coziest sweater ever. Those huge, chunky sweaters are among my favorite garments during the colder months: they instantly make an outfit. You can wear the simplest pair of jeans, and some super simple black boots – as long as you have a beautiful, cozy knit you’re good to go!

This Moncler one I found at Outlet Aubonne is a perfect illustration of what I’m saying: doesn’t this sweater just SCREAM cozy fall weekends, fireplaces, hot chocolates, snowy mornings and Christmas mood? As soon as I put it on, all I wanted to do was head to a cabin in the Alps and relax with a good book and a cup of tea.

I guess we all know about those iconic Moncler jackets right? But did you guys know that the brand also produced some other kinds of mountain garments? I surely didn’t but I was definitely happy to find out about it ;) plus I found this sweater at an incredible 50% off, such a bargain at this time of the year!

As you can see I wore it with a pair of urban, laced up boots to break the mountain-y feeling and keep the look edgy. The perfect balance for a morning spent sightseeing in Amsterdam – do you guys like it?

— I’m wearing a total look from Outlet Aubonne:
SWEATER: Moncler (from the Brian & Barry boutique)
JEANS: Levis
BOOTS: Navyboot

Testing Aesop products: my first impressions

  • DSC_2194

Testing Aesop products: my first impressions. As you may have seen, last week Luca and I got invited to the new Aesop store opening in Bern. I was super excited and happy to get to discover the brand and its universe – I did not know a lot about if before going to the event but somehow the brand was very appealing to me.

And I was not disappointed: I haven’t tried the products yet but the brand’s philosophy and ethics is totally in harmony with my beliefs! They use almost exclusively botanical components in their cosmetics and (something that I really really liked and found more than refreshing) they do not try to sell their products with ads featuring overly photoshopped girls.

See what I mean? I find the cosmetics world to be a twisted one, with those photoshopped, FAKE ads praising what’s supposed to be the ultimate new product that will make miracles on your skin.. I kind of hate it. And Aesop is definitely not one of those brands!! They believe that their products are good enough not to need any of those misleading ads, which I found absolutely great and as I said, very refreshing.

So yeah, I got back home with a very good first impression of the brand and a handful of new products to try – believe me, I can’t wait to see what the fuss is all about ;) of course I’ll be telling you guys more about this in a few weeks!!

So now, what about you? Did you already know the brand? Got any favorite products from them?
