Fun baking: Nestlé Fitness Cereals

Thanks to coolbrandz I've had the chance to try a huge quantity of Nestlé Fitness cereals :)

Today I want to tell you why I do like these cereals and I will also post a quick and super easy recipe I made using Nestlé Fitness Cereals.

I go to the gym every morning and it is very important for me have a breakfast that provides me with immediate energy. This means in one word CARBS.

My regular breakfast before I practice sport is:

cereals
milk
fruit
almonds

This is my fuel for my daily workout.

There are 4 different versions of these cereals:

nature
chocolate
joghurt 
fruits

My favourites are Nature and Chocolate. As I just said I usually eat them with milk, but they are also good with joghurt or fruit juice. It's up to your taste and habits!


These cereals are also perfect if you want to loose weight, and you might be interested to know that a portion (40 gr) with milk contains 146 calories only and is also rich in calcium and vitamines.

Ok, now it is time for my nonFitness recipe :D

These are the Nestlé Fitness Bars. Enjoy!

Bourjois - Nails & Co.

Last month I've received a couple of new products from the nice people at Bourjois.

And today I want to introduce you to the ones I find more interesting.

The first product is a completely new trend. Have you ever heard of Nail Tattoos??






   











Showing its best when used over a nude base, the Bourjois Nail Tattoos are a true eyecatcher. Available in Calligraphic or Graphic style this is the perfect solution if you are looking for new nail arts and very original ones. Along with the Nail Tattoos 5 new shades of the great So Laque nail polish were released: pale brown, vintage pink, coral red and lavender. All these colors are the perfect combination for a nude and tattoo look which is minimalist and chic at the same time!




When you run out of ideas when it comes to nail art Bourjois has created a very nice book called "My Nail Art Book" which features 30 step-by-step that you can easily achieve with what you have at home. Beautiful pictures, tips and tricks and much more ;)




Last but not least I want to tell you about what I call the InstantDry drops, the perfect solution for drying your nail polish quickly. Just a drop of this on each nail dries a manicure twice as fast. Enriched with cotton oil it dries, polishes and nourishes you cuticles as well. Highly recommended!


All mentioned products are actually available in Switzerland at a suggested retail price of:

So Laque CHF 12,90
Nail Tattoos CHF 9,90
InstandDry nail drops 9 ml CHF 14,90

Review: La Mer - The Intensive Revitalizing Mask



When looking at new products I must say that the trend is to come out with fast and easy-to-use ones. Which is not a bad idea at all ;)

Clearly this has to do with the frenetic life that most people live, which in one word only means OPTIMIZING. Optimizing is always a hard thing to do, but thanks to this new generation of "clever" products this process becomes much easier.

Can you imagine my enthusiasm when I've received this new La Mer product, the Intensive Revitalizing Mask!

Presented as "a miracle" this mask guarantees amazing results in 8 minutes only. Doesn't it sound unbelievably great??

When it comes to its properties the new Intensive Revitalizing Mask clearly hase all we would look for in an effective face treatment. The Miracle Broth, which is always the core ingredient of any La Mer product, takes care of skin's regeneration process, fermented kelp maintains our skin moisturized and glacial kelp protect our skin from stress, external agents and prevents aging.

I couldn't wait to test this mask since the moment I've had it in my hands, and what I can tell you is that I've been using it eversince. It became kind of my obsession :)

What also find great about the Intensive Revitalizing Mask is that unlike most other ones you don't have to rinse it, just wipe off the excess and massage any residue into your skin. Quick and easy, isn'it?

The Intensive Revitalizing Mask will be available in Swiss stores from the 25 of August 2014.

Cerjo: my favourite sunglasses for this summer 2014!

When it comes to accessories I never leave home without my sunnies.
As I'm always trying to promote swiss brands I'm in touch with the most famous swiss brand of sunglasses: Cerjo.

They are very well known for their sport sunglasses (ski, bike, mountain, etc) but they are also very good at doing fashion ones ;)

Cerjo kindly sent me this beautiful sunnies from their latest collection

This transparent sunglasses are very stylish and kind of "retro" thanks to its shape, but at the same time they are super fashion and bold with the green, or blue, mirror lenses.

The quality of the lenses is always very good (filter category 3) and protects your eyes against UV 100%.

What I also like about these sunnies is that they are unisex and are very comfortable.

I've been using them on on the beach and everybody was asking where I got them from.
It was clearly a great success ;)

Last but not least, I find the price very fair, for 39,90 CHF only you can buy yourself a super fashion and high quality pair of sunglasses.
