Weekend Beauty Special: Lush Shoptour

Hi guys,

If you follow me on Snapchat ( @badaloevera ) you may have seen that I have been invited by Lush to visit their shop in my city. Me and Selina got a shoptour, one of their shopassistens showed us the shop, answered our questions and let us try some of the products.

We all know Lush, the shop you can smell through the whole city with the beautiful colorful bath bombs. Everythings is cruelty free, most of the products are even vegan.

- They have a cosmetic line and you can use the products in many ways
- Ask the stuff about the stories behind the perfumes! There is one behind every single bottle and they smell amazing
- Lush is more than just bath bombs, they also have henna, soaps, face masks, deodorant, shampoo. peelings and so much more
- There is always a product which is sold for a good reason,all the money they raise will go into a Project which changes monthly. This time it was for clear water in south america.

We were able to choose some products and I will show you what I got during the next few weeks. I really like the philosophy and concept behind the brand, everything is produced in England, only the fresh masks are made in a little kitchen in Bern so that they can be sold as soon as possible.

A big thank you to Lush!

Wenn ihr mir auf Snapchat ( @badaloevera ) habt ihr villeicht gesehen das ich letzte Woche zu Besuch bei Lush war. Gemeinsam mit Selina bekam ich eine Shoptour im Store in meiner Stadt wo all unsere Fragen beantwortet wurden und wir die Produkte live ausprobieren konnten.

Jeder kennt Lush, den Laden den man schon von weitem riecht mit den farbigen Badebomben. Das ganze Sortiment ist Tierversuchsfrei und die meisten Produkten sind sogar vegan.

- Es gibt auch eine Kosmetiklinie, die Produkte sind vielfältig einsetzbar und ohne tierische Farben
- Fragt unbedingt das Personal nach den Parfüms und den Geschichten dahinter, es gibt nämlich zu jedem eine und sie riechen wirklich toll
- Lush ist mehr als nur Badebomben, es gibt sogar Henna, Seifen, Gesichts Masken, Deos, Shampoos, Peelings und viel mehr
- Es gibt immer ein Produkt welches für einen guten Zweck verkauft wird, der gesamte Erlös wird gespendet. Zur Zeit ist es für sauberes Wasser in Südamerika.

Wir durften uns ein par Stücke aus dem Sortiment aussuchen, ich werde euch in den nächsten Wochen zeigen was ich mitgenommen habe. Ich mag die Philosophie und das Konzept der Marke sehr gerne, alles wird in England produziert ausser die frischen Gesichsmasken, diese werden aus frische Gründen in Bern hergestellt.

Vielen lieben Dank an Lush für die Einladung!

Trying to play it safe

Hi guys,
Oh so much trouble this week! Im back on my laptop, nearly lost all my data but in the end we were able to save all the important files. Its crazy how lost I was two days without a computer, its completly my fault that it happened ( it wasn`t the first time ). Streaming isn`t that healthy, especially without a really good anti virus program. It was time to get Netflix, but I still need to find a way to access the US site, all my favorites aren`t available on the swiss one.
My birthday is next sunday and on saturday a new little "Weekend beauty column" will start, can`t wait to hear your opinion!
I would like to try out new hairstyles and as Im really into these beautiful 60`s looks, its the perfect chance to go out of my comfort zone. This dress is pure perfection, I wanted it since it was sneaked as a sample and finally its mine.
Have a nice Weekend!

Food Wednesday: Egg and Cheese Boat

Hi guys,

I hope this post will look like it should, my laptop died and I have to write this on my phone. So sad how lost we are without a computer these days, it just wasnt my day at all and I ended up watching Netflix with a lot of chocolate.

Anyway, today is about something else. Its called Breakfast boat on Tasty but I would never eat this for the first meal of the day, its way to heavy. But perfect for lunch or brunch if you want to try something new!

                            You need:
                         - 1 baguette
             - bacon ( I used veggie bacon )
                         - green onions
                         - 1 dl milk
                         - 4 eggs
                         - shredded cheese
             - cut a square out of the bread 
             - cut the bacon and the green onions into little cubes, cook the bacon
             - mix everything together, use as much cheese, onions and bacon as you like
             - Fill the bread and bake it for 25 minutes at 175 C, enjoy while its warm 

                        Bon appetit =)

At my best I am the worst

Hi guys,

Do you know the feeling when you hear a song and suddenly fall in love with it? You wanna know the lyrics, search for the artist, download every album and this song in particular is on repeat all the time. This happened to me with Lydia from Highly Suspect last week, it was played on the radio ( a little independent radio, best way to find some amazing new artists ) while I was on my way home. End of the story, a week later I know the whole album by hard and would love to see them live one day.

It reminds me that even one short moment can change your life and that its always worth it to walk around with your eyes wide open, maybe you`ll learn something important or a shitty day gets better by how beautiful the sky Looks today.

This can`t be me

...or the day I found out why hipsters dress like they do.

But lets start at the begining. Last week, the snow came and now everything looks like winter wonderland. Yeah, Im not exited about that btw, but maybe with a few winter days summer will come faster. Anyway, we went out for a walk and because it was freezing, I wore the warmest clothes I could find. I ended up looking like a Hipster. Leggings? You can layer thermo tights under them. Dr.Martens? They survive everything and ski socks have enough space, oh and they are comfortable as fuck. Parka? Nobody sees the three pullovers Im wearing under it. Beanie? No Explanation needed. Why I felt like I should wear my hair middle parted? No idea.

Have a great Weekend and dont take everything to serious =)

Food Wednesday: Spinach-Artichoke Dip

Hi guys,

This time I did something that is pretty popular in the US I think but not really common around here. A good reason to try it!
I found the recipe on Tasty but changed some things to make it a little bit lighter.

You need:
1 roll of buns
100 g artichoke
150 g sour cream
100 g cream cheese
2 cubes frozen spinach
1 dl shredded mozzarella
1 dl shredded parmeggiano
1 dl shreeded Emmentaler
2 gloves of garlic
olive oil

First, put the spinach in your microwave as long as described on the package. Chop the spinach, the artichoke and the garlic.

-  Coat the pan with olive oil and place the buns in a circle
- Mix the artichoke, spinach, cream cheese, sour cream, cheese and garlic together
- Place it in the middle of the bun circle
- Paint the buns with olive oil and if you like, spread a little bit of cheese over it
- Now bake at 190 C for 25 mins
Enjoy = )
