Winter Layering Streetstyle



I can't deny I am a lover of warm temperatures. As well because you don't need to wear that many clothes. But the positive thing in winter is that you can play a lot with your style through the layering technique. And as you all know fashion bloggers are not really wearing their looks the way they shoot it all day long. So please add a cozy fluffy jacket on top of this look, with a beanie and a scarf and you've got the right picture in your head. But why not pretend for a little moment that it's all cozy and warm outside. I remember that day it was super cold and I just came back from Fuerteventura, having a little temperature shock and being far from ready for anything below 20 degrees. 
But the warm coffee at Puro in the background brought me back to live. If you fancy a good brunch, I can highly recommend this place on weekends. You get everything from Avocado Toast to Açai Bowl and Pancakes.

Skincare Routine For Clear And Fresh Skin With Eucerin


Ihr Lieben 

Ich hoffe ihr hattet einen wunderbaren Start in die neue Woche. Der Januar ist der Monat der guten Vorsätze. Beziehungsweise sind sie zumindest zu Beginn des Jahres noch etwas präsenter. Persönlich bin ich kein grosser Fan von strikten Vorsätzen, aber auch ich nutze den Motivationsschub den einem der Jahresbeginn aufgrund unseres kulturellen Hintergrundes mitbringt als Chance um einige Dinge aus einer neuen Perspektive zu betrachten. 
Am wichtigsten für mich ist es, einen Lebensstil zu führen, der zu meinem allgemeinen Wohlbefinden  und Glücksgefühl beiträgt. Dazu gehört eine bewusste Ernährung genauso wie ausreichend Bewegung, viel Schlaf und die Einstellung sich nicht allzu viele Sorgen um die banalen Dinge des Lebens zu machen.  Das hilft nämlich uns allen, mehr Energie für unsere privaten und beruflichen Ziele zu haben. Viel mehr wünsche ich mir für das neue Jahr, Momente einfach geniessen zu dürfen, Freude mit Familie und Freunden zu teilen und positive Gedanken zu streuen. 
Sorge tragen zu Körper und Geist setzt sich auch in der Pflege fort. Besonders die Haut ist ein wichtiger Bestandteil unseres Erscheinungsbildes. Mit gesunder, reiner Haut fühlt man sich wohl. Nur ist das besonders in stressigen Zeiten manchmal nicht ganz einfach. Besonders da treten häufiger Unreinheiten auf. Eine gesunde Ernährung und die richtige Pflege helfen hier. Ich benutze sehr wenig Produkte aber aufs Abschminken vor dem Zubettgehen verzichte ich nie. Und - wenn dann doch Unreinheiten auftauchen gilt, Finger weg! Einfach mit der normalen Pflege fortfahren und der Haut die Zeit geben zu heilen.
Über die Weihnachtstage habe ich für Eucerin ihre Dermopure Care Line ausprobiert. Sie verspricht frische, reine Haut. Meine persönliche Erfahrung war positiv, meine Haut fühlte sich frisch und klar an nach der Anwendung der Produkte. Das Eucerin​ ​DermoPURIFYER​ ​Waschpeeling habe ich nicht täglich sondern bloss einmal die Woche benutzt. Das Eucerin​ ​DermoPURIFYER​ ​Gesichts-Tonic habe ich täglich benutzt, so wie auch das Eucerin​ ​Dermopure​ ​Hautbilderneuerndes​ ​Serum. Ich war positiv überrascht, wie sanft die Produkte sind. Ich muss allerdings sagen dass ich mich sehr glücklich schätze, nicht mit akuten Hautproblem wie Akne zu leiden. Aber auch hier wird die Linie empfohlen. Wer selber schon die Produkte ausprobiert hat, kann vielleicht seine Rückmeldung dazu in den Kommentaren schreiben. 

Für mich persönlich ist es auch immer wichtig, dass die Pflegeprodukte möglichst wenig, beziehungsweise im Besten Fall keine schädlichen Inhaltsstoffe beinhalten. Ich prüfe meine Kosmetik jeweils über die Seite Codecheck um zu kontrollieren, welche Inhaltsstoffe vermieden werden sollen. Eucerin liegt hier gerade in meinen persönlichen Standardvorschriften. 

Und nie vergessen, das schönste ist ein Lächeln im Gesicht. Mögen im neuen Jahr die Glücksmomente überwiegen und uns strahlen lassen!

Ich wünsche euch eine gute Woche!

Dear All, 
I hope you had a great start into the new week! Since January is always the month of new years resolutions I am gonna share part of mine. I am not a big fan of resolutions in general but somehow the new year always brings some fresh air due to our cultural habits of celebrating a "new beginning" with every year. This usually gives you the little extra motivation to stick to your goals a bit more. 
I can say that I only chose goals that contribute to happiness. There is no "exercise more" or "eat healthy" just in terms to get in shape, but mainly to stay fit and have the energy to keep on pursuing all my plans in life. 
Another part of my resolutions beside taking good care of body and mind is the right skincare. It is important to me to take care of my clear skin. Sometimes, especially in stressful times it is more difficult to keep your face without rednesses. Healthy food habits and the ritual of always cleaning your face from any make up before going to bed helps a lot. And in case there are some skin blemishes - the best is to leave them alone. Just keep going with your normal skincare and give them some time to heal. 
To support a clear and fresh skin I tried out the Dermopure Care Line of Eucerin. They have a product line called which is composed out of five products. I tested them over Christmas and I have to say I for myself am happy with the results. I am lucky to not have to fight with any skin problems like acne, but still could say my skin felt clean and fresh after the usage. I don't use a peeling on a daily base but whenever I feel like I need a deeper cleaning of the skin I used the The Eucerin Dermo PURIFYER peeling. On a daily base I used the Eucerin​ ​DermoPURIFYER​ ​Tonic and the Eucerin Dermopure​ ​Complexion renewing ​serumI was surprised how gentle the products are and also the matting effect of the moisturizer cream was a positive factor. 
For me it is also very important that products contain as little harming ingredients as possible - and in best case none of them. I run them through a program called codecheck to see if a product is vegan or contains alcohol and so on. Also there Eucerin passed the test for my personal standards.

Maybe some of you have already tried the products above and can share their experiences in the comments? 
And after all - keep living your life as happy as possible. Make the moments count and laugh a lot - a smile will always make you prettiest!

Vintage Winter Holidays

Dear All 

Winter Holidays are here for the constant switch from eating delicious food, sitting inside with a hot chocolate and watch the same old Christmas movies over and over again. 

To make sure I can fully enjoy those inside activities I love to have an outdoor break in between. As we live super close to a wonderful valley we often drive up there and go for a walk through fairytale forests or as we did yesterday go for skating. I think I am having the oldest skies and very vintage adidas skating shoes which I fancy a lot. Together with Mom's glacier googles and Dad's headband it makes me feel like I time travelled to the past. And since this winter I am equipped with some beautiful gear from Odlo and Ammann Shoes which I wanna share with you. I love it when functionality looks so fashionable. Since I tried on the ski undergarment of Odlo two years ago I don't wanna miss it anymore. I use their Blackcomb Evolution combo for skating, snowboarding and sometimes even if I go running in the cold and it always keeps me warm but aerated. You can't really see it in the picture, you can only guess how it looks like when you spot the sleeves where it says "I care"
This red jacket was a lovely Christmas gift by Odlo from their Vintage line and it's called Anette. It is perfect for skating as it keeps the wind away.  

The shoes you can see on my pictures are from Ammann Shoes. A traditional swiss family business since 1917 which is located in Oberentfelden. They name their shoes by famous Valleys and Villages in Switzerland, preferably some where you find a lot of snow. And there is even one shoe with the name of my hometown, Luzern. The shoes are produced in the Piemont in Italy, high quality is guaranteed. I fell in love with their signature red shoe laces and the fact that they are the most comfy and safe pair of winter boots you can imagine. Lined with sheepskin and with a resistant sole they are ideal for those fairytale forest walks I spoke about in the beginning. 
Let's see how long I can keep them for myself, my mom already has an eye on them since she just fell in love with the shoes. 

I wish you a wonderful time during your winter holidays!

Merry Christmas from Winterwonderland Switzerland

Dear Readers

I hope you've spent a wonderful December so far. Christmas is for me always the time to come down and detach from from everything work related just spend time with the family and be present. 
Nevertheless I want to spend some time on this entry since it is very important to me to say thank you for your fidelity. For more than 5 years I am leading Bonsoir Cherie now and I still get amazing chances to work with brands I love, to meet great people and to discover so many beautiful things.
I hope I can take you on more trips in 2018 and share amazing places with you. 

Enjoy these days with your beloved ones, eat great food, laugh and be happy. 
Merry Christmas! 

Thank you for being with me in 2017


Love, 
Marina

Christmas under the Sun - Outfit Inspiration

Although I was on a little break I couldn't resist to take some pictures in Fuerteventura. And especially as it was to show you a Christmas outfit inspiration. Who knows maybe one of you is celebrating under the sun and needs exactly this kind of input?! I can only recommend an escape to that wonderful island. To be able to walk around in dresses in December is something that makes me really happy. And of course the fact that there is the sun, the sea and some waves to surf. 

But anyway - you can always wear that lovely lace dress with the teasingly back neckline on Christmas in the cold weather as well. I hope you are having a chimney fire at home to still stay warm. 
This is one of the dressy dresses I've got at La Redoute to make sure I am ready for the Celebration Season. And as a little surprise for my dear readers I am happy to share a discount code with you. You can get a 20CHF discount on your purchase with my Code CHERI if you shop online at La Redoute.

No Time for November Blues - Styles for Autumn

When it gets colder many of us rather stay home and miss the warm temperatures. So do I - but I always try to still get outside and charge energy in the nature. Get some fresh air and unwind in the forest helps to keep me happy. I love to spend a longer weekend up in the mountains. One of my favorite places to go to is called Eigental and is very close by where I grew up. To go up there on a Sunday is something we used to do as a family very often. So here you find a look to go on a long weekend in November. This is not the typical outfit I go on long walks with but more an Autumn Sunday Look. With a cozy sweater and some flat knee high boots and Jeans you're perfectly set for a little walk. And if you change the boots for sneakers you're also set for the dirt walks through the forest. 
What are your plans to escape the well know November Blues?
