5 amazing benefits of Himalayan Salt Lamps

We’ve just resurfaced from a short but noticeable internet downtime due to moving (yes, once again! We’re becoming pros).

Spring Pamper Routine – Vegan & Cruelty-free

Spring pamper routine

Some of my most highly requested posts are cruelty-free pampering routines – I’m glad more and more people are interested in Vegan & Cruelty-free beauty. So now it’s the perfect time to do a new one as Spring is here and I’ve changed quite a few of the products I love & use (also thanks to some massive hauls in the past few weeks). Today I’ll be pairing some old favorites with some newly found absolute must-haves. I try to do this pamper routine once a week, mostly on Sundays when I’m back from trail running. Usually I’m not this high-maintenance, I even have simple minimalist routines during the week....

5 tips how to stay focused and motivated

how to stay focused and motivated

There’s something about the beginning of a new year that gets most of us excited to get organized, detoxed, start new activities, challenges, miraculous (?) morning routines and possibly a new sport. Truth is, new year’s resolutions could be started just as well all through the previous or following 12 months, but our minds work that way (it’s a bit like “I’ll start the diet on Monday” kinda feeling) and if a state of mind can finally make us set & work towards achieving new goals, let’s take advantage of it! Clearly, if you work from home like me, it’s crucial to have self-discipline. So this is the perfect opportunity...

Minimalist summer hair care routine – Vegan & cruelty-free

Minimalist summer hair care routine

When I think of summer hair, I imagine wild, natural hair that flows in the seaside breeze. Mind you, this is the first summer I spend thousands of kilometers away from the nearest beach, but yet that image and sensation is imprinted in my memory. That’s why when summer comes around, I try to minimize my hair care routine using only natural products that are not only effective but also Vegan and cruelty-free in order to get get the results that I’m looking for while still being able to live green and leave a minimal footprint.

My top 5 cruelty-free products for glowy, radiant skin

My top 5 cruelty-free products for glowy, radiant skin

  Today I want to share with you my top 5 cruelty-free products for glowy, radiant skin that will help you in your quest for beautiful, glowing skin. If you know me, you know that I like to keep things pretty simple for everyday looks, and I feel that healthy, radiant, flawless skin is all you really need to feel beautiful. When you have a good-skin day, you don’t even feel the need to apply tons of makeup (unless you really want to). But please do remember that skin, being the biggest organ of your body, cannot simply look healthy if you don’t feed it the right way: a plant-based,...

5 ways to welcome Spring

5 ways to welcome Spring

5 Ways to Welcome Spring How did you celebrate the arrival of Spring? We spent the night over in a cabin in the mountains, and woke up at 6am with the sound of birds chanting to the day. We witnessed an amazing sunset (photos coming soon on Photo.feub.net) and then sat quietly while the sun came up, feeling at peace. For years I’ve only really appreciated and celebrated the arrival of Autumn, but now I think the best way to step into Springtime is to actually acknowledge that Nature around us is changing, waking up and therefore our bodies, too, are undergoing some type of transformation. This is why I...

January favorites

So, January’s over. Wait, what? Weren’t we all in the xmas mood just a couple of weeks ago?

If you want to see what a typical day having fun outdoors looks like here, head on over to this photo my husband: Lispach Lupus.

2015 in review

2016 is almost here! I wanted to take a quick moment to share some of my personal highlights of 2015, and I invite you to do the same. More than hastily making new year’s resolutions, it’s important to stop for a moment and take a glance at what you’ve achieved or what you’ve overcome during the past year. Only then we can make plans for an even better year to come, don’t you think? So here’s my 2015 in review Opened SevenRoses for business When in 2014 I quit my job to relocate far, far away from home and work as a freelance, I thought I would only work as...

My favorite skincare oils

My favorite skincare oils

Today I’m very happy to talk to you about something that has been requested many many times: my favorite skincare oils. I’ve been using oils in my skincare for the past few years, way before the whole “coconut oil frenzy” started, as I’ve always known that pure, natural oils like olive oil was used in very simple beauty routines by my own grandmothers – extra-virgin olive oil being the jewel of the Mediterranean area. A little dab of olive oil was used to moisturize face and hair already a long time ago, when skincare creams were a luxury. The products I’m going to show you are 100% natural, cruelty-free and...
