5 Steps Hammam Ritual for your Home Spa

Dear All

As you all know if you follow me on my social channels, I am a travel addict and always on the road.
So sometimes you have to relax and calm down at home. This is why I love the principle of Hammam. You have to take your time to follow the steps and through that you automatically slow down and concentrate on the ritual. 

The one I show you is in cooperation with Rituals

1. Clean your skin with the Black Soap, which is nourishing and at the same moment deep pore cleansing. Take a Kessa Massage glove and rub it off your body. 

2. Use the Hot Scrub to peel your skin and get refreshed by the scent of ginger. 

3. With the Body Mud you cleanse your skin further in a very gentle way.

4. Soothe your skin with the foaming soap gel. It can also be used for a foaming massage. 

5. Give your skin the ultimate nourishment with the Body Cream. 

And then you can start daydreaming again of future trips. I always keep my mind close to my favorite destinations with having my surfboard in sight and surrounding myself with beautiful seaside pictures at home.

Occasionwear for summer cocktails

Dear All

The wedding and event season is on and with it the question what to wear. I will share some outfit inspiration in two parts. In this post am actually showing a dress, that could even be kind of a wedding dress for a bohemian wedding. I definitely don't recommend to wear it as a wedding guest. 

But - there are other occasions where you are allowed to dress up - and -  to wear white. For example a chic summer reception or a cocktail. Or if you go to the Opera you can also wear such a robe and feel like Cinderella. 

The dress is from Frock and Frill and I got it via Zalando. Where I do my (mostly last minute) occasion wear shopping. Because running around from store to store is just very stressful if you are working full time and are as late as I am most of the time. 
So you can just get your selection delivered at your home and try it on in a relaxed mood. I am now ready for any occasion which asks for a proper dress, only in need of an invitation now. With the dress that follows in the second post I will also give you an option to attend a wedding as a guest - with a romantic and chic dress. 

We shot the pictures in Rome in front of the Colosseo where there were many many people around us, so we decided to take a walk a bit to find a quiet spot. We were super lucky to find this oldtimer Mercedes Cabrio which I would love to call mine..

Swimsuit Love for Summer

Summer arrived and is brought us so many amazingly beautiful and warm days already. 
I could sit in lake resorts all summer long,  drink iced coffee, read magazines and enjoy the sun.
I totally fell in love with the retro swimsuit by solid and striped. I really like the fact, that swimsuits came back into fashion. And with the orange and pink tinted sunglasses the world instantly looks like cloud 9. Find yours and join the lovers club!

Swimsuit: Solid and Striped

Travel Hacks - My Essentials for a VW Bus Surf Trip

A little while ago we went on a trip with two VW busses to Italy, to chase waves. As there is mostly only some swell in Winter, we did not know if there will be any waves. But we were super lucky to find out that the spot in Recco was working with decent waves. Before and after that, we were enjoying the Italian lifestyle, having lots of Capucchinos and Pizza. 

With our VW busses we stayed in a beautiful camping called Framura, right at the seaside. It was a bit cold in the night, but definitely a nice experience. As we were still in the pre season - you know this is something I love, we had almost the entire camping area for ourselves. 
Something to keep in mind when traveling with a VW Bus is to be organized and not bring tons of stuff, as you need the space in the car to be able to sleep in there. As I am definitely not camper girl, or at least I never went camping the last few years, I had to think of packing. So I went to some outdoor shops and asked brands I work with for some inputs. 

I ended up buying some outdoor gear like special lights for camping, and of course a sleeping bag and I already had my beloved NorthFace Bag which I always bring on surftrips. And I even bought - as a joke - a survival book to read what you could do if you were out in the wild. Not that we were, but you never know what happens. 
A new gadgets were brought to me by Gilette. They have this tiny little pocket razor, the Gilette Venus Embrace Snap, which you can bring everywhere. And as I was wearing a short wetsuit during this trip, this was a great addition to my travel essentials. One morning I went paddling in the sea, as we weren’t expecting any waves. And as the location was just breathtaking we shoot some pictures. 
If you plan an upcoming trip, I’ve got a surprise for you - make sure to check my instagram @bonsoircherieblog to not miss it. 

Another product I will introduce in a next entry - stay tuned!
Happy weekend!

Protect your skin with Daylong - Summer holiday in Ponza

We already have full immersion of Summer here in Switzerland. I can't remember having had such a beautiful May weather. This means spending a lot of time outside, at the lakeside and in the sun. 

Which is the call for sunscreen. As I spend a lot of time on the water while surfing or doing sports outdoor, I take care to use effective and lasting sun protection. I was recently traveling to Italy and Fuerteventura and was testing the Daylong Sunscreen

I used SPF 50+ for my face and SPF 25 for my body. As I am always covered with a wetsuit in the water, this is enough. As I don't lay in the sun too long when I am on the beach. To give my skin some hydration after long days in the water and on the beach, I used the after sun lotion. What I personally like, is that the products from Daylong have a very soft scent and are not heavily perfumed. As well the face suncreen is in a nice pump bottle which makes it easy to apply without getting any sand in there. 
The pictures were shot on a recent trip to Ponza, a little precious island not far away from Rome. We went there by boat and took a bus to discover the island. I can only say it is a real jewel. We were lucky enough to enjoy the calm before the storm, as we were there before the season started. So we had this lovely bay all by ourselves. 

I will have a surprise with Daylong for you the next days, so don't forget to check my instagram @bonsoircherieblog.
