Wearing silver and rocking it

Last weekend, I was travelling to the South of France : a place I really enjoy and that brings back lots of memories of my childhood. My parents used to have a boat and sometimes navigate around the area. You might have seen some pictures if you follow me on Instagram, but it's such a gorgeous location. Anyway, such a nice trip with amazing people!

Quickly talking about my look, quite a lot of silver right? I loooove shiny clothing, that's why I couldn't resist, and it's even better when paired together! Simple yet sophisticated. Unfortunately neither the top or the skirt are available, but it's still good to give inspiration.

An all white look

Dear user of the Internet, here is how my week went...
Something I realized this week was : having a passion isn't always easy. Last Sunday was my birthday, I slept almost all day but it was an enjoyable time! Unfortunately the following days where much harder, both emotionally and physically. You might have noticed I was less active around here, and that's because I've been really exhausted lately. And all this felt like I didn't have time to do what I'm passionate about anymore. A hard decision had to be made, but reflecting back, I'm happy I did it. Doing what you love is the most important thing, never forget!

Oh oh, aaaaand to end this blog post on a really positive note, I'll let you enjoy my new and beautiful cat top from Sammydress. I know, it looks quite agressive, but it's cool! Any cat lady out there to agree? And if anyone can guess what's in the cat's hands - let me know - because I have no idea.

My top 3 fashion shops

Shopping is my passion. Well not to this point but almost. Shopping is fun and even better when done with your partner in crime (poke Naoyumi). When looking for clothes, I realized I was often going to the same shops, some more famous than others. So why not sharing my favourites? Tell me, which ones are yours?

YESSTYLE
Starting with an old one. A few years ago, it was the only website I was shopping on. My entire closet was full of clothing from YesStyle. Yes, it's an Asian website, but before you run away : quality and professionalism are taken very seriously. Nowadays, this is the place where I buy most of my cosmetics. ➥ Read my shopping guide here.

If you don't live in Switzerland, I'm not sure if you already heard about it... I recently discovered it was actually a Swiss brand... A few years ago, the selection was not that good, very much teen-oriented and nothing really wearable for young adults. But now, they're doing an amazing job and I love shopping there!

T-shirts that will make you laugh (look & selection)

"No bra club", "Never not hungry" or even "Kanye attitude with Drake feelings", all of these are funny sayings and even better if printed on a top. A simple sentence and a t-shirt make the perfect gift : whether it's for someone who comes to your mind or simply for yourself. This is the best way to complete an outfit while giving a minimalistic but yet fashionable vibe!

➠ You'll find below a little selection of printed t-shirts : which one represents you the most?
"Awkward is my speciality" is definitely my favourite!

I can't find swimsuits that fit me!

Bodies come in all shapes and sizes - this is what makes our world so beautiful. However, it becomes much less attractive when looking for a swimsuit that actually fits. There is tons of stores who only offer regular sizes and if you don't match the standards, then good luck.

swimsuit plus petite size summer trend swiss fashion bloggerI'm always on the lookout for brands who have petite and plus sizes. Even big names such as Victoria Secret don't have much of a big range when it comes to smaller or bigger sizes. We're talking a lot about body positive movements, but why can't brands follow?

Bikini shopping is a real struggle, right? Whenever I stumble across a brand that actually offers petite and plus size, I can't do anything but share it to the world. Have you ever heard about Adore Me? They're committed to deliver perfect-fitting lingerie, yes, I said, perfect-fitting. And yes, they do keep their promise because they offer petite and plus sizes. To get a quick overview, I made a short selection of gorgeous swimsuits - and if you'd like to see more styles : here are the swimsuits page and the plus size page!

Bloggers & collaborations (+ advice for newbies)

Yes - bloggers get sent free stuff, but how does it work? Whether you're simply curious or looking for information, keep reading! Coming next : collaborations - how and why & advice for newbies!

Until now, I got to work on two types of collaborations. First one : you get sent items for free and promote them your platforms. It's mostly used by the brands to create awareness around their products. Second one : you write a blog post while linking to the brand's website. It's used for Search Engine Optimization (which goal is to make a website appear higher in Google search) and to do that, brands need blogs to link back to their website - so here we are! To be fully transparent with you, it's usually paid between CHF 90 to CHF 150 for small bloggers. Another type of collaboration I've never had so far, is where brands send products to try and also pay for content creation.


5 must-read tips below!

When starting your own blog/channel, collaborations are attractive. First thing first, and many other bloggers will tell you the same : don't blog to get free items, but because you truly like what you're doing. The key to be collaborating with brands is patience. Focus on creating quality content rather than working with brands. If you're feeling lost, here are a few tips any newbie needs to know :

1. Doing it for free is ok - but not always
Brands often ask to write about them for free. If the brand is close to your heart or if they're really interested into your work. then say yes. Otherwise it's a no no. Lots of them take advantage of bloggers because they know some will accept. It's usually forgotten that creating content takes lots of time, even for bloggers.

2. Don't accept anything - it should match with your tone
Don't accept anything just because it's free. Think about how you will build content around the brand and whether or not it will fit into your universe (@shout-out to all of the wedding dresses websites : I'm not interested, thanks). Back to basics, you must believe in the products you're promoting.

3. Don't loose your time - there is lots of rubbish
You'll encounter lots of brands who don't make any effort to look for your name or even what your content is about. Some of them don't even read when you're answering their mail or suggesting new ideas. Keep it simple, and delete them. (& beware of those offering ridiculous amount for blog posts)

4. Build a relationship - be professional and outgoing
People are behind brands and they're working as hard as you do. Respect deadlines, be respectful and don't be afraid of suggesting new ideas! Work together as a unit. Let brands use your content, whether it's on their social medias or directly on their website. It's a win-win for both of you!

5. Have fun!
