Low-Cal Sparkling Chocolate? - Choclo!
I got a package full of chocolate - but not in the usual shape and not with as many calories for a change! :D The new invention is called “Choclo” and promises a refreshing sparkling low-cal chocolate experience, which to me sounds like a successful concept! I gotta admit, I haven’t tried it but I will tonight and I’ll let you know how I liked it on my Facebook Page, so...
Strip Nails @ perfecthair.ch
I was invited to try “Strip Nails” at perfecthair.ch on Mühlegasse 5 yesterday. Strip Nails are those that look kind of like gel nails, but you can easily peel them off if you want to change the color. They consist of a base & top coat and one of the about 25 colors available. To harden them, they use ultra-violet light. Definitely a funky experience. They couldn’t tell me...
MTV, Geordie Shore and lots of presents...
I’m not too informed on Jersey Shore but yesterday, I received a little package informing me that there’s a new season coming up on MTV, straight from New Castle, called Geordie Shore. I suppose I’ll take a look once it airs! ;D Thanks!

Ke$ha sent me signed pee...
I got a lovely package from Ke$ha yesterday, wondering what I might have gotten… Unpacking it, I was, let’s say slightly surprised, discovering a cup of pee with Ke$ha’s signaure on it… Now what was that all about? First of all, I quickly discovered it wasn’t really pee, it was an energy drink shot. And the reason for it? A competition! You can win “A night...

Studio Day - Recording.......!
had an amazing day yesterday, recording at Sonar Studio with A.!.M. tons of guests showing up, like the fabulous Miss Switzerland Candidate Sara Wicki, Chrystal Renn, Mes, BON and Julian Kirchner, turning it into a nice little studio party. :) What we recorded? Well, it’s still a secret, but I’m absolutely thrilled about it! So all I’m saying, stay tuned, there is new sound...
Pink, Semi-Formal and Fun - Ready for Spring at...
I like colors and I like to be just a little funky for days at the office. I don’t work at a dark-suit office, so I get the chance to experiment a little bit, like with this outfit, mixing black and white to create a contrasting effect, matching it with a pink blazer to finish it off. And this is how it came out! Outfit: Jeggins - Tally Weijl, Shirt - H&M, Blazer - H&M Milan,...
Pink Camera Girl
I’ve had my pink Nikon J1 for over a year now and it’s stuck with me, even with my earrings. ;) Have a fab day!
When Gum Becomes Fashion...
What did I get? I don’t think I’ve ever gotten gum so nicely wrapped up in a ginormous parcel, it was all just a little bit like a Russian Matrushka-Doll. What was it for? The two new Trident Flavors Entertainmint and Legenderry Berry (I love those wordgames hehe). The fun about them? They are made to entertain, with their names, lovely comic gum-print, their printed packages...
Finally in Hotpants!
H Just a shortie as I’m already running out again - I got to wear my hotpants for the very first time yesterday - summer is FINALLY on its way! Of course I had to mix in some neon pink just for the fun of it. :P Here’s more: Direct link for iPhone/iPad users
My Fitflops are still waiting for summer...
You know, I got my fitflops a few months ago and when I got the package, I thought great, very soon I’ll be out at the lake in hotpants or a bikini with my new kicks! …. I’m still waiting. For now, since they’re so darn comfortable, I decided to take them for a stroll inside my apartment. Have a great weekend, everyone!
Blue McKay on the Rocks
Just a shortie - I was dressed in navy blue from head to toe (my wedding color…! :P) with my H&M trenchie and my lovely navy blue ballerinas, shooting some piccies on a rock. And this is what came out of that one: Direct link for iPhone/iPad users

Retro Ruby-Red Shoes - I ♥ the 70s!

Bridal Bliss, D&G & Prada
First of all, I wanted to tone it down, tone all the colors down and have the spotlight on my lovely new sunglasses. :) Therefore, I chose a mix between beige and military-green with my parka and military-green boots. Meeting up with my maid of honor, we had to shoot a few pics outside the bridal gown store, going slightly wild. :) And here’s what came out: Outfit: Beige Jeggins - Tally...
Bridal Bliss - Preview
Let’s call this a little preview to the outfit pics we shot on that day. Since we shot right next to the store where I bought my wedding gown, Liluca, we went a little wild and took the above pictures. After all, you’re only a bride once, right? ;)
I’ve always loved to mix different elements, and this spring it got an official label. :) Candy Rock seems to be the it thing for spring. It basically meens mixing rocky and boyish elements like biker jackets and boots with girly pieces and feminie pastel colors - I’m excited to create different outfits going in that direction. Here’s one: Direct link for iPhone/iPad users
Prada? - A Dream Comes True...
Well, first off, I’ve been OBSESSED with the Prada Minimal Baroque sunglasses for the past 2 years. The only downside? Speding that amount of money on sunglasses while planning a wedding is just not justifiable. Now what happened. The other day, I went to Manor in Zurich and found this piece. It’s the latest by AVP, it LOOKS like the parda Minimal Baroque in a different color but...
Elegant Baby-Pink is the New Black...!
Whenever spring comes around, I start craving pale baby-pink and girly outfits. But how to wear a girly color like that to work? I believe I found my work-around in this outfit: combined with lots of black, Calvin Klein and a matching scarf to tone it down. Out of the office, I cut it down to just the black shirt and the pink jeans and Rayban-esque glasses turning my business outfit into the...
My New GUESS Watch!!
As you may know, I am a blogger for GUESS Access and for every assignment, I get a little present from them. This time, just in time before the third assignment, I received this exlusive little something in soft-gold, right out of their 2013 Tri-Tone Collection! I can already think of outfits to match it up with! I shot a few pics of my growing collection as well, right at the bottom! :)...
Yacht Club Outfit - Let's go sailing...
I’m a fan of slightly themed outfits and I’ve been so wanting to create this one in forever and it just didn’t want to turn spring. I got this beautiful scarf from my grandmother who passed away in December and it’s been making me want to put together a blue-white-red outfit. Once I had it on, I couldn’t help but think yachting (maybe also due to the recent Tommy...
Mint-Green Jeans for Spring
I’m a huge fan of the 2013 pastel-jeans trend this spring and decided to go for a pastel-green pair, combining it with my dark blue blazer and my new dark blue ballerinas.

DJ Antoine’s performance I had to film of course. ;) Here’s more: Direct link for...
Casual, Baby! - Happy Spring School Days
School days in spring let you be creative and sometimes just a tad lazy when choosing outfits - combine everything with anything, shades of pale and black and grey and blue. The trick behind being casually careless? Never be careless. Even behind the everyday casual chique, your manicure need to work, your make-up should be flawless or you just end up looking like you just fell out of bed. Btw,...
Turquoise Glitter Chucks - I wish I had these for...
These are the perfect shoes for my casual outfit today, got them in an e-mail the other day and I gotta say, I’m considering these. I’m a chuck-fan anyways, but can’t really make up my mind which color(s) to get. :) What do you think? Shoes: Dosenbach/Deichmann
Hairdresser Time - once again for the blondes!
You know how I am, I just love getting my hair done because it means two hours of doing absolutely nothing, being forced to sit down and relax. Yesterday, that was exactly what I did. My Master of Disaster Valerie from Ryf at Glattzentrum rocked it again and I came out with the coolest highlights in forever. But you see for yourself: Direct link for iPhone/iPad users
80s, Pink and Jeans with Polka Dots -...
We had the sunniest Sechseläuten ever (even though the snowman lasted over 35 minutes lol) and we decided to just go out and hit the lake for a few hours. Finally being able to be outsie without seven layers feels amazing, I gotta say. As to the outfit, I decided to go a little 80s… Here’s some more: Outfit: Dotted Jeans - New Yorker, Shirt - H&M, Strawberry Blazer - H&M,...
Happy Sechseläuten, Zurich!
Today’s the day they burn the Snowman called “Böögg” in Zurich and walk up and down the road in traditional outfits - It’s Sechseläuten! Yesterday, we checked out the Sechseläutenwiese (or now more like Sechseläuten Plaza around Bellevue) and I shot a few pics of my manicure with my new Essence apple-green nailpolish I’m totally in love with. And this is how it all...
Of Flying Bikes and Universities...
So we went to Glattzentrum yesterday to prep for our dinner guests, me in my soccer-mom outfit sporting my Darden University of Virginia T-Shirt and - yes it’s finally happening - no more boots, no more coat.

Food-Inspiration: Homemade Safron Bread

Now here’s now you do it: Recipe: Take the basic recipe for a Swiss “Zopf”, such as for example this one: Swiss Zopf- Then add as much safron as you feel like (I went for a strong one) and form...

I got a present from Vienna! :) My man brought home this awesome Murano glass ring, just perfect for summer with its golden-orange shades and I absolutely love it!

Starbucks News! - and I missed the event... :(
I missed the latest bStarbucks event, a behind the scenes trip, due to my stupid flu that doesn’t wanna leave me, but got an e-mail including a free coffee the following day! :D (you should too if you have a member card). Apparently, they have a new pretty Espresso, Starbucks Origin Espresso. I haven’t had the chance to try it, but since I’m a sheer coffee addict, I sure will...

McKay's Family Easter - The next Generation
I’m getting old - no it’s not that I woke up one morning, looking in the mirror, seeing all my wrinkles (well that too :P) but you always notice it during holidays. It used to be baby-me going to my grandma’s for Easter with my parents. These day, it’s grown-up us visiting the parents for easter. Same place - different people. Very strange but comforing in some ways....
