Hey my loves! I know, I am very sorry as I am not up to date with my posts on the blog! I am still posting about Amsterdam when I actually went to London after it and also attended a few other events in between… I swear, I am trying to get a better organisation in my posting schedule! I am actually always caught by the time as I want to do 20 things at the same time and end to do the half of them… I mean nobody tell me “how to be a good blogger”… I am just doing it the way I feel which is probably not always the best!

 

There is this things about blogging that I love the most, is that most of the time… everything you do is very spontaneous and freestyle. I mean there is no rules, no obligations and you can honestly just do it the way you want! I mean… that’s my blog right? But what are the rules of blogging? How many times a week do you have to post? What do you have to write in your post?

Answers? I have no answer to give you and nobody will never give you the right answer to this because there is no right/wrong way to do. I personally try to post as much as I can while keeping a healthy and needed social life (friends & family) next to my blogging life. For me this is the key of my happiness. I also prefer to stay more “spontaneous” with you and write my article the day before posting it. Most of the time, my article are publish around 7am as I write them late at night and schedule them for the next morning (yes.. it’s 1:10am right now!). The things I am saying in my article are sometimes personal, sometimes randoms and sometimes informatives. I love sharing with you what I did and my feeling about it and I love sharing what I learn during those amazing experiences.

Stay authentic. For me, most important things to do as a blogger is : Do it the way YOU want. Having a blog is something very personal. For some fashion blogger, it sounds like a personal diary, for some others, it is a way to share their knowledge. Some write in a very formal way when some others (like me) prefer to write to way they talk in life – Yes, my french (english) isn’t perfect – sorry! But don’t forget that blogger are not journalists or writers. I am Alison, this girl who love burgers – don’t go to sport – hate reading books but loves history. I love luxury brands but can’t afford them – I go to H&M and I am not ashamed. And you? who are you?

Organisation is the key. Can you imagine that being a blogger, is actually organising yourself every single day? This is not always as easy as you may think. The proof is that, I’ve got a few “last minute” travels this months and all my organisation fucked up…see… I am showing you pictures of Amsterdam which take place more than 2 weeks ago!

Focus on your things. Comparing yourself to other is something very easy to do but it will actually not help you at all. Comparing the way you do with other can inspire you but you can also loose you. Always remember, why did you start blogging? How do you like to write? What do you want to share? And my advice is : Stop looking at what people do – Instead – be focus on you and what you are going to do.

AMSTERDAM PART I

It’s a new day and it’s a new post from somewhere else in the world! Amsterdam

 

Spending less than 24hours in this amazing city was a heart broken! As soon as I arrived in holland, I knew that I was going to love this country. I was invited to spend the weekend with Desperados which sounded like a lot of fun and it was! I had some free time in the afternoon and took this opportunity to explore the neighbourhood and have lunch. We stayed at the Andaz hotel which is straight near the beautiful and famous canals of Amsterdam. Perfect as we didn’t have much time to visit! The hotel was located in a very typical area so at least we didn’t have to go far to see and experience the real Amsterdam. What I loved the most was for sure the beautiful brick building and the incredibly beautiful canals. The peaceful atmosphere from the canals contrast with all those bikes coming from everywhere and ringing their bell to make you move from their way. Damn, they all look like they doing a race! haha but it was fun to see it !

 

This is the outfit I wore to attend the Desperados “Flare” Party. I will for sure talk about it in another post…(very soon^^) I didn’t know exactly what were doing later so to make sure to feel good, I wore my go-to lowboots. Definitely the pair I wore when I want to feel ready for a long night. It was definitely a very good idea…you will understand in my article about the event! I also paired this new velvet jacket with a pink skirt. I love the mix between the brown and the pink, it looks very seasonal but still fresh. The velvet is definitely my favorite material for this fall/winter, I am literally obsessed with it!

ZALANDO SUMMER HOUSE

Do you remember when I told you in one of my last post (HERE) that I was heading to Berlin with Zalando for a new adventure? I actually had an unforgettable moment! I stayed at the Zalando Summerhouse with almost 30 bloggers/influencers from all over Europe. I have to say that one of the best thing about blogging is meeting other awesome persons and growing, sharing with them during those moments.

 

Our program was mostly focus on the Bread & Butter by Zalando which was the first Edition. So mostly,  our days were shared between very healthy lunch at the Rose Garden, heading to the fair and enjoying some fashion shows by brands such as Puma, Hugo Boss and Topshop. During the day we discovered different booth which offered brand experience like for example, you were able to customise your own levi’s jacket at the tailor shop. We had the amazing opportunity to have a special “meet & Greet” with the beautiful GIGI Hadid at the Tommy Hilfiger booth. As you may know, she just launched a very cool collection in collaboration with the brand which is actually available on Zalando (HERE)! We also attended the showcase of A$AP Rocky which was insane! Then the other days were also full of surprise and different activities! We even had make-up artists and hairstylist available for us every single day, isn’t day amazing? Let me tell you everything in details!

 

DAY 1

I arrived in Berlin in the Morning and check-in at the beautiful Summer House at the Amano Home in Berlin Mitte. A Gorgeous hotel booked only for us and very well situated in the City. At my arrival, I discovered in my room tons and tons of gifts everywhere! From Maybelline to Fossil, Topshop and even a Olympus Pen Camera! I was so happy and thankful as I wanted to buy this camera since so long! After a little presentation from the zalando team, we headed at the Bread & Butter fair. The Gigi Hadid meet & Greet and A$AP rocky moment was definitely the highlight of the day!

 

DAY 2

For the second day and after having my makeup & hair done, we had a visit of Berlin. After being  3 or 4 times in the city, I actually never had the occasion to visit it! Finally I made it! We had a delicious late lunch at a place named ” ROAMERS“. We heard that some people wait around 2 hours to have lunch there! I mean, the food was very very good! After discovering some hidden place in Neukölln of the city like this pretty restaurant, we headed back to the hotel and get ready for the rooftop dinner party! The setup was so pretty with flowers everywhere, good Dj playing the perfect music & delicious food.

 

DAY 3

For the last day, they organised a shooting around the topic “Opulence” in the city. Unfortunately, after 2 days of sun it was pouring rain on that day! After it, we had some free time before heading to the Bread & Butter closing party!

Let’s share some of my favorite pictures and thanks again to Zalando for having me!

MAKE UP TREND FALL/WINTER 2016


The Fashion week started a few days ago! Now that the trend for 2017 are presented, do you remember the one for now? For the common people, all we need to know is the current trend… we don’t really need to think a year ahead right? By then, let’s have a recap about the beauty trend for this fall/winter season!

 

Below every trend, I am presenting some products that I’ve tried and approved! This is a selection of brand that I appreciate and that I would recommend to you to create those looks!

PEACHY GLOW

fall-winter-2016-makeup-trend-bangbangblond-swiss-blogger-alison-liaudat-fw2016-13

This trend is the proof that sometimes, an easy makeup can have a maxi effect! It’s all about having a shiny and healthy skin with a light peach eyeshadow. All you need to realise it is a light luminous fluid foundation, a lovely pink eyeshadow and add some intensity to your eyebrow. For your lips, go with a lovely nude lipstick (matte or glossy).

++ My favorite product for my eyebrow is without any hesitation “Gimme Brow” from Benefit!

DARK LIPS

Another easy trend, all the focus is on your lips. The darkest is the coolest! Wear a bold lipstick and you are almost ready to go! For your eyes, all you need is a dramatic mascara and a nude eyeshadow.

FLUO COLOR

Go crazy! For this kind of look you will need some “qualification” if you don’t want to look like a clown… I’ve been trying the “eyebrow pen” from mac in a light blue color and seriously, the result was pretty cool! It gives the impression that you bleach your eyebrow (you know, a bit like Kendal Jenner did a few months ago). Add some touch of color here and here and don’t hesitate to go out of the lines.

– COLOURFUL PRODUCT –

BLACK OUT

As you know, eye liner is my everyday make up! What do I use? Foundation, Eyeliner, Mascara & Bronzer powder/Blush! Pretty easy, right? To create this kind of looks you really need to focus on your skin and on your eyes. Work on a light foundation and make your eyes dramatic.

++ My favorite eye-liner is the Yves Saint Laurent Baby doll (00 BLACK). Honestly the only one that I use since years!

NATURAL GLOW

The nude make-up doesn’t mean having nothing on your face. On the opposite, it’s the fact of having a natural beauty look with make-up. For that, you have to focus on your complexion. Structure your face in a “natural” way with a light contouring (not talking about the “Kardashian” contouring). You have to contour in a natural way. To create it, use a little amount of product and blend it a lot! For a healthy skin look, add some pink on your cheek. For your eyes, you can use a very light pink eyeshadow and a very little touch of mascara.

TRANSITION

From Croatia to Berlin, and now leaving to Amsterdam, I still have many pictures to share with you on the blog! But first, let me share with you this look before coming back to some key moments! I had a blast in Berlin at the Zalando Summer house! I can’t wait to share my experience with all of you. Things are going pretty fast right now, September is going to be a super busy month. Trying to manage my calendar start being a bit harder as I have so many amazing opportunities coming up! Now it’s time to be full of energy and enjoy all these unbelievable experience! Can I have a super fresh juice full of vitamins please?

 

We are into those “transitional” outfit. You feel like it’s still summer, but you realise at some point that it’s still chilly at some moment of the day. The thermometer is still going up to 26°C in Switzerland. Which is so great and nice! Fall season is definitely my favorite season of the year to get dressed. I love the fact that you can add layers and make your looks more interesting than during summer (I have enough of the short-shirt kind of day…). So now it’s slowly time to come back with your denim, light jacket and all those things!

 

Today, I am happy to share with you what I call a “transitional” look. On these pictures, I am wearing my off shoulder dress that I’ve been wearing all summer long. The key piece is definitely this bold and deep leather jacket that I bought in New York!  On top of that and for the edgy style, I added this pair of “stars” low boots from Zalando (Misguided). The typical fall piece in this look is this new “furry” Longchamp bag. The colors and the material of this bag smell the fall season right?

THE YACHT WEEK WITH ULTIMATE EARS

The Yacht week in Croatie with Ultimate Ears was one of the most amazing adventure I’ve experienced so far! When I received this invitation, I didn’t know what to expect from it exactly. Now, I can tell you how it was and my vision of it!

 

At my arrival at the Marina on Saturday, I saw tons and tons of people! Ready to board and also ready to party! When I first saw our catamaran, I was so impressed and excited to spend a week on it! To be honest, I was also very scared to be sea sick (I’ve never been sailing before) and also scared to feel confined in it. Now, I can tell you that I am not sea sick at all and didn’t feel confined. Ok, exept in the cabin that I shared. I have to admit that the cabin was small and that I am not used to be in such a little space. But as I spent approximatively 2o hours a day outside of my cabin, so it was all fine!

 

Expect the unexpected! There is NO limit during the Yacht Week. If you are looking for a relaxing week… don’t book it honestly! The days are driven by parties and music! You party during the day and during the night, that’s why people are here! Of course, you will sail and have time to relax but that’s not the point of it! Naked boy jumping in the water? That’s normal! Crazy party on a boat where everybody is welcome at 2pm? That’s normal too!

 

I had a very good time on the boat with Ultimate Ears and will remember this week forever (it sounds cheasy, right lol ?). But, I guess, I can tick it from my Bucket list! I still can believe that I was invited as a swiss influencer with another blogger from Switzerland and also a couple of german you tubers! It was very nice meeting people and live with them during 7 days.. what an experience!
