Hiking is on!

Summer and fall are the perfect seasons to go hiking! Also hiking is an activity that is very adjustable for personal needs. You can either go for a gentle walk around a lake, or you can run up a mountain, or even do several days of hiking!
Also when walking with friends you have loads of time to catch up, to talk or just spend some quality time together. Whereas going alone also has a very meditative aspect.

Some hiking tips for you:

  • Shoes: Make sure you know about the terrain and bring the right shoes. Running shoes might not be the right choice for a mountain climb. Speaking of shoes, don’t go hiking in new shoes! whenever you got yourself new ones, wear them at home, or for work to get your foot used to them. Otherwise, your hike might end up in pain.
  • Orientation: I might seem old-fashioned, but a compass is never a bad idea! I’ve heard of several people who got lost and GPS-Signal couldn’t reach them anymore.
  • First aid: Never forget a first aid kit
  • Emergency: Maybe write down the most important numbers for an emergency. For Switzerland that would be 117 (police), 118 (fire department), 1414 (Rega) & 144 (general emergency/ambulance).
  • Breakfast: Eat something before the hike! Even though you might not be a breakfast eater, you will soon realize this requires more energy than another work day at the office. Speaking of energy, bring bars, dates or chocolate for whenever you might need a quick kick of energy.
  • Point of no return: Make sure you know for every moment of the hike where you are, where you could go elsewhere, for example as a shortcut or at what point you will walk to the end, instead of turning around and going back. You may consider moor, fallen trees, flood or even snow to occur.
  • Water: make sure you have enough water! You might have to take multiple flasks with you. Also, inform yourself before if you can refill them on fountains. And as our Grand-father used to say: the last sip must be drunk at home.

Also, let me know if you’ve been hiking yet and where and maybe attach a picture for me to publish! 😀

We all love summer, but our hair and skin are quite stressed after the holidays. I’ve got some products to nourish your hair and skin after your holidays:

First, there are bodylotions for your skin. ‘Dream Cream’ by Lush is an amazing cream. If you need a little more holiday-spirit you may try a bodylotion with coconut smell. The ‘soleil des isles’ cream should make your tan last for longer, I tried it last year, but can’t tell if it actually works. But it smells very well. Directly after you return from the sun and washed off your sunscreen it is important to put on after soleil, not only if you got burnt.

For your hair I can really recommend the R&B Hair cream by Lush, as well as the Coconut oil by Lush. I usually apply it to my hair-ends. Ready for your Beauty-Summer-End? 😉

Wir alle lieben den Sommer. Aber er kann unser Haar und unsere Haut ziemlich stressen. Ich habe hier meine Top-Produkte um deinem Körper den Sommer ebenso schmackhaft zu machen:

Zum Einen sind da Bodylotions. Die ‘Dream Cream’ von Lush mag ich besonders. Um deine Ferienlaune noch etwas zu verlängern kann ich eine Lotion mit Kokosgeschmack empfehlen. Des Weiteren habe ich auch noch die ‘Soleil des isles’ Lotion, welche anscheinend deine Bräune länger erhalten soll. Ich habe sie letztes Jahr gekauft, kann aber ihre Wirksamkeit nicht mit Sicherheit bestätigen. Immerhin riecht sie toll! Abends nach dem Sonnenbad ist es immer zu empfehlen die Sonnencreme abzuspülen und anschliessend mit Après-soleil einzucremen, auch wenn du keinen Sonnenbrand erwischt hast.

Für die Haare kann ich die R&B Haarcreme von Lush sowie das Kokoshaaröl vom Bodyshop sehr empfehlen. Diese Produkte massiere ich jeweils nur in meine Haarspitzen. Bereit für dein Beauty-Sommer-Ende? 😉

Most important things to always carry around with you during spring and summer time:

Sunglasses, umbrella, weather sometimes tends to change quickly. Sunscreen, once the sun’s out, everyone sits outdoors, hanging around in the sun. Make sure you don’t get sun burnt. Chewing gum, always a good idea. Deo, it gets warmer, we might sweat more than during the cold season. Hairties, once it gets hot you might want to tie up your hair.

Die wichtigsten Dinge die du im Frühling und Sommer immer mit dir herumtragen solltest:

Sonnenbrille und Knirps-Regenschirm, das Wetter kann wechselhaft sein. Sonnencreme, scheint draussen die Sonne, setzen wir uns gerne nach draussen und bleiben auch für eine beträchtliche Zeit der direkten Sonne ausgesetzt. Sei vorsichtig, dass du dir keinen Sonnenbrand holst. Kaugummi – immer eine gute Idee. Deo, es wird wärmer, logischerweise schwitzen wir mehr als im Winter und eine kleine Erfrischung zwischendurch kann nicht schaden.  Haargummis, mein Favorit; für eine schnelle Abkühlung einfach die Haare hochbinden.

Walking on sunshine – the perfect glasses

Finally sun’s here and the sunglasses-season begins! There are a whole lot of different shapes and sizes of sunglasses. To help you pick the right one you might look at the mirror to figure out how your head is shaped here

Have fun 😘

Endlich ist die Sonne wieder da und mit ihr beginnt die Sonnenbrillen-Saison! Es gibt enorm viele verschiedene Formen und Grössen. Um die passende für dich zu finden, solltest du zunächst einmal in den Spiegel schauen um heraus zu finden, welche Form dein Kopf eigentlich hat!

Viel Spass in der Sonne 😉
