#travel: Montreux Christmas Market


I got to spend a few hours at the Christmas market in Montreux. The market stands range from ones selling loose leaf tea, herbs and spices, hand crafted goods, food and obviously freshly brewed mulled wine. There's several activities taking place in the area, but alas, the one thing I was intrigued about, the ferris wheel, was a miss as it was just too foggy to try and enjoy.

#Travel: Yvoire and Evian les Bains

I recently went  exploring Yvoire and Evian les Bains and had a terrific time. Yvoire was everything I had hoped it would be, a quaint medieval town with remarkable views. I can't wait to return there, even if it's just for a quick stop. 











Evian les Bains boasts spectacular views of the lake and is the epitome of serenity.

Product Empties- November Edition



1. La Roche Posay Serozinc- This spray gets lots of love in the beauty blogging fora but as I said before it didn't impress me as much. Nonetheless its one of those products that is practical to have. It's really cheap and makes do as a toner, especially when I want to switch it up a bit.

2. The Body Shop Fuji Green Tea body wahs- this range is one of my all time favorites from TBS. The scent is pleasant and does the job.

3. Klorane Mango Butter Shampoo- Like the conditioner, this shampoo has been great. It smells lovely and  makes the hair soft.

4. Lierac Tonique Eclat- This is hands down my favorite toner. Soothing, refreshing and gets that little bit of makeup left over. Backups please!

5. Liz Earle EyeBright Soothing Eye Lotion- I've reviewed this product here.

6. Liz Earle Skin Repair Moisturizer- I've gone through several of these over the years. This is the kind of moisturizer that does its job. It's hydrating, non greasy and last quite a while too.

7. Esteban Smokeless Incense Sticks in Cedre- This is part of the Esteban for Nature et Decouvert range. While the scent is really particular and pleasant these burn up incredibly fast.

8. The Body Shop Japanese Cherry Blossom Body Lotion- This is non invasive floral scent that lingers on for a while. It's fresh and mildly hydrating and over all a nice lotion for normal skin.

9. L'Occitane Roses et Reines Hand Cream- This is my favorite hand cream from L'Occitane, both in terms of scent and texture. It is not greasy and only takes a short while to be absorbed.

10. Nioxin Intensive Treatment Deep Repair Masque- I've been using this one for years and am only just now letting go of this one, solely because I want to branch out to other brands. This is a non weighing hair treatment that leaves the hair nourished and silky smooth.

11. Redken Pillow Proof Blow Dry- yet another lovely product. Apart from being a great product in itself, the fact it has a spray nozzle is highly practical. I will repurchase as soon as I'm done with the ones I'm using right now.

12. Liz Earle Cleanse and Polish Hot Cloth Cleanser- This is another product that I've used for a long time now and which I always seem to have backups of, also in practical mini sizes for travel. This cleanse up the skin well without making it feel dry.

13. Liz Earle /nourishing Botanical Body Cream- This lotion smells lovely due to having rose scented geranium and sweet orange essential oils however it takes a while to be absorbed and that is just not too practical for me.

Louis Vuitton Multicles 6 Damier Azur

A while ago I picked up this key holder and took my purse organization a step further. Now those keys are safely tucked away in their own little pouch, preventing scrathes and also making finding them little easier. I've always loved the Damier Azur canvas but normally shy away from it due to the patina on the vachetta. Since the latter is non existent in this slg this got me even more interested.

This time round I also opted to have my initials hot stamped on in gold. The service is free and took only one working day worth of wait. After using this one for a while now, here's my thoughts about it.

#travel: Trip to Annecy



Just a while ago I ventured off to the medieval town of Annecy in France. I tried to vlog a bit but I have to admit I was more focused on enjoying the trip. The town is spectacular and I can't wait to revisit. The canals, the cobbled streets and the little houses alone make the trip worthwhile. The Chateau and alpine landscape are the cherry on the cake.
