WOAH we had 43°C (109°F) this weekend in Los Angeles and I spent most of the time by the pool, in Malibu by the sea or eating giant ice cream cones haha (more shenanigans on my Snapchat username mijaflatau).

A few days ago Weleda asked me to share my favorite L.A. spot to calm down and relax. I always go there when I want to take a deep breath and simply think about nothing. at. all. And nothing beats to hear the waves crashing on one of the cliffs on Matador beach in Malibu.
Such a relaxing place when it comes to escaping from all the stress in your everyday life. Especially, when you lose your inner balance and the skin is suffering from irritations. In order to get back on track, it’s time to #breathenow and to treat oneself with some beauty products and me-time.
Weleda is also one of my fave natural cosmetic brands as my mom used to buy their products when I was younger and I obviously used what my mom used :). I always go for natural ingredients when it comes to cosmetics and so I was super happy when Weleda sent me a care package. I’ve tried most of the products over 2 weeks now and the bottom line is.. natural ingredients are still the best and most effective ingredients! Read below…
 FACTS:
WELEDA almond soothing facial lotion / cream / oil       those three in combination are perfect for sensitive skin – super soft and clear skin after a few days
WELEDA almond sensitive skin hand cream     wow ok – makes your hands super soft and non sticky and to be honest it’s my fave hand cream by now (and I’ve tried them ALL)
WELEDA almond soothing body lotion       non sticky, super soft feeling and also one of my fave body lotions

Yesterday, on Sunday we went up highway 1 to San Francisco and stopped at Monterey – one of my favorite places in California as the nature is simply breathtaking.
But why all the road trippin’? My hubby and I spending most of the next 6 months here in the San Francisco area because he got a really really good job offer (he works as a Car designer and he is kind of badass in his job) and I’m happy to have the possibility to discover two vibrant cities and all the beautiful nature as we are keeping our L.A. home.

Two weeks ago we spontaneously decided to book a short trip to Palm Springs to relax over the Easter weekend. Nothing but refreshing pools, nice interior design, good food and lovely nature. We stayed at the Ace Hotel & Swim Club, visited Moorton Botanical Garden, Sunnylands Center & Gardens, Coachella Valley Preserve, drove around the half day with friends and had the most delicious dinner with friends & family in the city. AND the one and other pancakes at Kings Highway diner. If you are into mid century modern design you should book a tour or drive around Palm Springs to get inspired. We also visited the Kaufmann house designed by Austrian Richard Neutra – really one of a kind. 
See you soon Palm Springs!
