Berlin with Zalando - Backstage Images

And here it is! A few images from the secret project we are having with Zalando. I am not able to tell you more but I am super sure that you will love it. I arrived directly from my south france trip with Eighty Four Rooms to Berlin for the shooting project with Erika from Italy, Madeleine from Austria, Rebecca from the Netherlands, Vanessa from France and Tiphaine from Switzerland. 

It was a pleasure to work with Zalando again. Meeting new people from around the globe, having the best dinner in perfect company at the Katz Orange, to creative talks and new friendships. Merci Beacoup! I had a great time. And what I really need to recommend to everyone of you is to have a dinner at the Katz Orange. 

You won't regret it. Everything is just art there, from their food, their waiters, interior and wine, the people. All you need to love is fish and meat. A big thank you goes to Madeleine for the backstage imagery which she shot of me. And of course everyone on set and the Zalando team for great three days in Berlin. 

So, I have still some Eivissa images I truly want to share with you and an super overload from my Eight Four Rooms trip, what I can tell is that it is one of those picture stories I love the most. Now you know what's going on the next days, I am going to spend all day retouching images. See you soon.

Montreux with Parmigiani Fleurier

I was invited to the Montreux Jazz Festival by Parmigiani Fleurier. You might remember my last two contributions from Lausanne in January, the 'Parmigiani Fleurier' and Beau-Rivage Palace.

I haven't imagined that the reunion with the wonderful Parmigiani Fleurier team would come by so fast.  Huge thanks to Irene, I hope you are reading this, for organizing and making everything so special and unforgettable. Julia and I enjoyed it to the fullest.

There is so much to tell. Oh and Montreux is such a picture perfect place on earth. It just not have idyllic landscapes, it also has charisma, heartiness and a unique feeling that is spread all around the Lake Geneva. We stayed at the incredible Fairmont Le Montreux Palace and I really want to let you know, the breakfast is incredibly delicious. 

Traveling is such an enrichment, it gives you so much more than memories, of course it makes you intercultural in the way of living and thinking but it can definitely inspire for new ideas or ways which are to me personally priceless. Vicky from Bikinis and Passports, Anna from Mangoblüte and Kathrin from Modepilot joined the pleasurable days with me as well. 

As I already mentioned on my Instagram, I was able to get to know two of Parmigiani Fleurier designers but that's not all we had also the chance to talk to the Founder of Parmigiani Fleurier who to me is truly a genius. It was really impressive how he showed us his work of restoration. I must admit that I truly rarely have seen such a passionate person. 

Everyone of us that day could feel his passion, not only for watches or the restoration but also for everything roundabout it, he just lives and loves his profession. Michel Parmigiani brought also a theme to the day that made me honestly overthink many situations. So, he was talking about himself, the watch industry and the mechanics of a watch. And as a restorateur there weren't so many technical options; except know-how and skills which he has acquired over years by himself. Michel Parmigiani compared it with todays lifestyle, previously people had 2-3 friends today thanks to Facebook and other social media channels we are able to connect with so many people all over the world. What he wanted to say is that his profession was and is still so unique and it's rare. He also mentioned that todays generation is not stable, they do not know what they want and sometimes they catch on on something and after a short time they break up. That's not the way it works and he's right. 

Julia and I had also some spare time which we used for a tanning session at the Fairmont Le Montreux Palace. That was urgently needed. 

The main reason for this trip was the Montreux Jazz Festival. Parmigiani as a main sponsor of the Montreux Jazz Festival since 2007 set up a camp for music lovers. Parmigiani Fleurier invited its customers, journalists and cherished friends from around the world to join them for a string of events, including an evening of concerts and special moments, discussing watchmaking in music and losing track of time, during a hot air baloon trip. 

Parmigiani Fleurier is rare amongst sponsors in that it gets involved with all the Montreux Jazz Festival activities throughout the year - not just during the three weeks of concerts. Supporting young talents and musicians of tomorrow is particularly close to the brand's heart., as it was to Claude Nobs, the festival's founder. Parmigiani Fleurier is continuously developing and enriching its partnership through its support for the Montreux Jazz Artists Foundation and the Montreux Jazz Cafés.

Hello from Montreux

Sending out a warm hello from Montreux. I am here with my lovely Julia and we are spending 2 relaxing days with Parmigiani Fleurier in Switzerland for the Montreux Jazz Festival. 

We had an early flight to Geneva, got picked up by our Driver with Vicky and Anna who came from Vienna as well. Staying at the beautiful Fairmont Le Montreux Palace with a speechless view on the Lake Geneva. 

I am sharing here the first impressions after our direct arrival. So happy that we are having  tropical weather over here. Happy Day! Bisou, Sylvia

Ibiza Diary Part II

Ibiza was such a priceless experience, the ladies from Blogger Bazaar truly organized everything perfectly. And I know how much work and organization is behind that all. Julia and I always plan and structure our trips and sometimes it takes months to have everything fixed. So, I truly do not know where to start, what to tell and which impressions to share with for now. 

At our first day we have visited the Rituals store and got pampered with hand massages, beautiful and useful goodies like the beautiful anti-aging water resistant sun protection spray which immediately became my favorite, the QI Chinese Mint and Yi Yi Ren relaxing serum which is my superhero during my exams period and a lot more treasures we got to know and used to at the Yoga Session with celebrity trainer Veronica Blume.

I always wanted to try Yoga but I never had the time and opportunity to. Since a longer while I am admiring the women who are doing yoga, not only because of their beautiful bodies but also because of their inner peace and charisma. I am convinced that yoga not only trains your body but also gives you the possibility to find peace, to reflect and to focus on yourself for a while. Veronica had what I want to tell you about, she is beautiful but not only from the outside but also from the inside. 

We all could feel that she was totally complacent and this strength allows to not just love yourself but everyone around you as well. She had the positivity which was truly impressive and I truly miss this in the humanity. I truly became a fan of Yoga and I really need to start my sessions as soon as I get my exams done. I just felt so much better after our commencement exercises - somehow happier and balanced. I totally believe in that that you have to feel comfortable in your own skin to be relaxed and happy in any situation.

Ibiza Diary Diary Part I

Dear readers, I am sharing here a few of my images from Ibiza with Blogger Bazaar. It's surreal that these goosebumps moments are over. I will try to make the articles approachable. 

Big thanks to our sponsors Asos, Mister Spex, Seat Ibiza, Rituals, Uhlalá BeachwearAir Berlin, InStyle, Belvedere Vodka, Antidote Juice and of course Blogger Bazaar who made this unforgettable trip possible. 

The last days were completely what I needed, powerful women and a great photography and filming team, amazing brands and the sun, long night and vino talks at the pool, a lot of laughter. Just saying but finally people who empower themselves without being hateful of another. 

So, I truly have too many pictures to share and therefore I have decided to show you a quick mix of Ibiza impressions. 

And a big bacci to all the bloggers for so much love and good vibes, hope to see you soon ladies! Pink Fox  I  The En Vogue Coop  I  Masha Sedgwick  I  Lovely Pepa  I  Bonnie Strange  I   Maria Imizcoz   I    Bekleidet    I    Fashionmonger
