Today, I want to share my laser hair removal experience I am having at Dr. Chichakli‘s clinic in Vienna, because it has quite literally changed my life. Body hair is an incredibly personal but also unavoidably political topic, since its presence is natural and its removal is tied to socially reinforced beauty ideals. I respect everyone’s opinion and everyone should choose itself either shun hair removal, shave or wax or pay for laser hair treatments. Since a teenager I am the biggest enemy of body hair, so this treatment is by far the best decision I ever made.
Last but not least, today I want to tell you everything about Bali and my personal favorite places where to stay, eat, shop as well as what to see and do in this beautiful tropical paradise. Some say this island is overrated, a paradise that has lost its way and getting dirtier every year. But really it has just devopleped transforming from a low-key hippie haven to a enormous soulful place, where you can stay smart but still find a barefoot vibe.

Hiding deep between the Dachstein mountains, approximately one hour far from Salzburg, with its lakeside views and charming old buildings make Hallstatt one of the most charming villages in Europe. There must have been fairytales born from this spot and so perfect, that China made an exact replica of the village to serve as high-end housing. When I heard about this fact I had to laugh, because they can really go too far doing replicas! *giggles*
Since decades Vienna is known for its tradition of the elegant occasions celebrated in a uniquely romantic flair. Nowhere are balls so romantically formal as in Vienna and this tradition continues since decades. Glamorous floor length dresses are a must for these kind of special events and if you love dancing, you must choose the right ball gown.Honored to represent this year’s one of the most special events – I am so looking forward to the Golden Masquerade Ball, which will take place at Hilton Vienna Plazaon 2nd of February 2018.
Today is the first blank page of a 365-pages book, and I am starting it with a big recap. It is a nice way to look back on the past year – not of the pain I felt, but the strength I gained, all the experiences, the growth, achievements, reminiscing beautiful moments, places I went, people I met, acknowledge the difficulties, challenges, struggles, appreciate how far I’ve come and understand how they have helped me to grow the strength and wisdom that brought throughout this journey. You can also take a minute to write down everything, and you will realize where you have come.
It’s time to dust off your sparkly dresses and glam up your beauty routine.
By the end of this year, there are plenty of reasons to celebrate the last days of December and get ready for 2018. It’s cold and dark outside, but it’s time to sparkle and be colourful – especially with the right make-up products. Brave ones will continue wearing mascara and eye-liner pencil and lot of colourful pigments around the eyes. So that the look doesn’t appear too strong, lipstick and rouge should stay minimal. Overall for this season either eyes or lips should be remarkable, because less is more.
Lately I have been thinking to write more personal articles and especially to answer the frequent questions I get about blogging. As you may know, I started blogging in September 2010. Seven years back, when websites were the main platforms where bloggers shared their outfits, beauty, travel, lifestyle posts and everything seemed much easier. We didn’t had Instagram or Snapchat, so our subscribers were the real followers we had.
Whether you are looking for beautiful beaches, DJ’s or good cocktails, here I want to share my personal favorite beach clubs and the hottest addresses to chill and party the holiday hours in Bali. The best beach clubs cover the island from Uluwatu to Ubud, offering cool music, watersports, beautiful bamboo beach bars and sunset cocktail views. The best way to spend sunny or cloudy days are definitely lounging on a sun bed, cocktail in one hand, book in the other while listening to either the residential DJ or crashing waves. Whether you are spending your holidays in Seminyak, venturing down south, or have decided to go Island-hopping – here I have a list of Bali’s hottest beach clubs for you.
