Fashion & Beauty For Skiing in Switzerland

My Beauty Kit

Efficiency & Simplicity

What to pack for a ski weekend in Switzerland? Essentials in mini doses: everything has to be weight light, useful and compact. Multi function products with two goals: to moisturize and nourish in depth (picture above). 

An organic olive (or Jojoba) oil which can be used to remove make-up (face & eyes) and as a day and night care for face. I mix it with a moisturizer, the Facial emulsion of Bee Nature. And I also apply my organic olive oil after the shower as a body (and hand) oil and as a hair care! Two sample size masks for face (detox) and for eyes (decongestant and super moisturizing). An ideal sun protection: Ideal Soleil 3-en-1 taches teintes anti-taches noires SPF50 + of Vichy.

For hygiene: a Dove Compressed deodorant, disposables toothbrush with mini toothpastes. And as I was going to the hotel, I didn’t have to carry a face and body cleanser. I was wrong! If you have a very sensitive skin, put in a smaller container, your cleanser. I missed so much my super gentle Huile de douche Atoderm of Bioderma and a moisturizing mist to boost hydration.

The Make-up Kit

A MAC iridescent-matt blush, blush and mascara. And a mini black pencil and two brushes. My almost finished fragrance of Moderne Muse Le Rouge of Estée Lauder.

In My Travel Bags

By Hand

Gone are the days when I charged myself as a donkey for a short or long journey! On the picture above: here is what my unique handbag contains to get to the airport, board the plane and the arrival at the hotel. 1. I prefer a large super lightweight canvas bag, washable and easily foldable. In which I add a leather clutch (2) to tidy up the plane tickets and to go out at night.

3, While travelling, I wear my ski gloves, under ski jacket and after ski boots to lighten my carry-on. 4, Pen and notebook, like for the book : to give me good conscience, LOL! 5. Inseparable (but I managed to loose it on another trip): the charger of my smartphone! 6. A (Spa water-based) hand cream by Bee Nature with a disinfectant, lip moisturizing and of course, my addictive Estée Lauder red lipstick.

7, Un peigne king size, vu ma tignasse, avec élastique intégrés (LOL!). Un rouleau adhésif anti peluche, poil, duvet et autres : essentiel lorsque l’on porte des vêtements noirs! Tout doit être évident à trouver, donc moins il y en a, mieux c’est!  7, A huge comb for my huge hair (LOL!). A lint roller: a must-have when wearing black clothes! Everything has to be obvious to find, so the less is always better!

My Hold Luggage

My bag on wheels is so small, weight light and compact I could keep it in the cabin! The Osprey Ozone Convertible is my big favorite! The best luggage I’ve ever had! Simply awesome, discreet and stylish!

1, My ski jacket. Easy tip: Roll all of clothes for optimum space saving. And put a big ski sock (9) in each shoe. 2, My ski pants. 3, My fleece sweater. 4 & 5, T-shirt and tank tops. 6. A pair of dressed boots for dinners.

In an old gallery in central Zagreb (picture 1), I discovered the origin of the tie at the Salon Croata. When the Croatian Light Cavalry went to Paris during the Thirty Years’ War (1618-1648), soldiers “used to tie lively-coloured scarves around their necks in a certain way”. And during the reign of Louis XIV, Parisians really enjoyed this new fashion accessory “in the Croatian way”. Subsequently, as you know, the cravat has become global ; ) Ilica 5 (Oktogon). Tel : +385 (1) 4812-726.
