Thinking out Loud & Obsession Alert!

It’s crazy really… working in beauty has left me craving less products. Weird how being surrounded by products 24/7 leaves you uninspired and uncharacteristically “lazy” when it comes to trying new trends or *gasp* removing your makeup.
I sure am glad I don’t work at a froyo store.. oh the terror of no longer wanting to eat the deliciously creamy, dreamy goodness.

Speaking of which, there is an I ❤ Leo froyo place here. Naturally we had to go…


I also had some carrot juice, cause you always need a healthy balanced meal. Protein and veg for the win!

Moving on, I have discovered some products I hope will be hopping on to my ever-growing (albeit more slowly) collection of goodies.

This eyeliner from my recent reblog: I have never tried anything but the nail polish by Chanel and I believe it is high time I take a leap of faith 😉

This nail polish I mentioned on Monday. Still love it – still want it.

Now for some random thoughts for Thinking out Loud:

  1. THE SWISS TEAM MADE IT INTO THE NEXT ROUND IN THE WORLD CUP! In absolute patriotic manner, I made a tomato mozzarella salad a few weeks ago for their first game and designed my plate to look like the Swiss flag:


I then added basil and cream of balsamico which turned my patriotic contribution into a work of art 😉


Oh and you guys… I ate gluten-free chickpea gnocchi on the side! It was ok-ish, but I was just so in love with the idea of chickpea gnocchi I just had to share this with you!



Too bad the Iranian team didn’t make it any further… I was totally ready to eat loads of rice and yoghurt to celebrate.. now I’ll have to eat it to cheer me up… so win/win on the food front, I guess?

2.  Another current obsession: fresh juice. There is a Chiquita juice stand at the train station, and when I don’t know what I want to eat on my train ride back to Zurich, I get myself a papaya, ginger, carrot smoothie with add ins like aloe vera or propolis.



Makes for one happy train traveller 😉

3.  Oh and another thing: I  AM IN LOVE WITH JOMA JEWELLERY! I found the cutest bracelet the other day and absolutely had to have it…

IMG_1180Anything with the word princess always takes me back to this ecard. Always.


But seriously though…

Joma Jewellery also has a few other cute bracelets I wouldn’t mind adding to my collection…I’m such a sucker for cutesie things with fun little sentences and meanings…

4.  Another love/obsession: This song


It’s so PWEEEETTYYYY! I listen to it often while stretching after my intense workouts..

5.  Speaking of which, I’m doing super-well with my fitness goals! (Not so much with my nutrition because we have had TONS of press events lately, but more on that in another post!)

I am so happy that my body is getting used to the exercise i.e. my fat burn has increased since my heart rate is slowly becoming more “athletic”. I think I’m finally ready to venture in to the world of Crossfit! I seriously cannot wait to join, but still desperately working on my pull-up!

IMG_1233Oh and on a final note: This dog! He loves cars! I can’t get enough of the cuteness 🙂

With attitude and nail polish, Anoushé xoxo

  1. Hey A! Habe gestern Karin Koch gesehen und sie war total beeindruckt von Deinem coolen Blog.. Daher: Weiter so!! See you soon Tina x

  2. That bracelet seriously is the cutest thing ever, and a HUGE congrats on all the progress you’ve been making on the fitness front! It always feel so, so good to feel stronger and faster, eh? Definitely great motivate to take care of yourself 😀

    • Isn’t it? You absolutely must check out the others 🙂 Yes, it is the BEST motivation ever. Things will be looking up for sure. Thanks for commenting xox

  3. I agree with you about working in the industry. I’m definitely ‘lazy’ and underwhelmed about trying new things. At least it saves me some money?

    • It’s crazy isn’t it! Oh, yes that is definitely a plus 🙂 I would’ve never been able to test all these lovely nail polishes otherwise!
      Thanks for your comment xoxo

  4. That salad looks amazing! So hungry now.
    Also, I totally agree with you about being less inclined to want products when you’re in the industry. I found the more makeup jobs I booked the less I wanted to spend anytime on my own makeup. I started losing my love of makeup, so now I keep it just as a hobby.

    • Well seeing as Switzerland made it into the next round, you know what you can eat for dinner when they play 😉
      I’m glad to hear I am not alone! I cannot tell you how many times I have left the house makeup free and without winged eyeliner (shocker!!) since working here… But I guess “everything in moderation” applies here too, so it’s great that you can keep your passion alive as a hobby 🙂
      Thanks for the comment! xoxo
