Geneve Plage

Ok, this is something you should probably check out if, like me, you get all beachy seeing all this water. The hot sun and the cool and incredibly clear waters of the lake make me crave a swim and last weekend we gave in.

Norah Jones and the Montreux Jazz Festival

Now this is really difficult to review. First of all because it's such a complex topic and second because we didn't get to experience it to the extent we wanted to. But I'll try to summarize our experiences:

Make up for Glasses

Hi All

I know it's been a while. And I still owe you a post on the Norah Jones concert (and Montreux Jazz Festival) and on our outing on Geneve Plage. Those are to come very soon.

But there's something I've been confronted with lately, and I have to tell you about it. My makeup-loving harmony-addict lifestyle was quite crashed by the fact that I was prescribed glasses a couple of months ago. At first I felt like something very very bad had happened to me. I mean wearing glasses isn't something you'd voluntarily do, is it? But soon I realized it' an age old stereotype and glasses are pretty much like bangles or bracelets nowadays. And they can make you look just as gorgeous.

Montreux Jazz Festival

Some awesome friends surprised us with two tickets to the Norah Jones concert this Saturday!

I'm so excited! I haven't been to a decent concert in some time and I've always been dreaming about this festival!

Check out the official homepage, though I've been informed that tickets were sold in minutes. However, it is worth planning ahead for next year's event, or hang around the entrance for tickets sold for twice their price (if not more...) and there are free performances and programs as well! ;)

Have a wonderful weekend
(it's soooooon!)
and enjoy the sun.

Permit Me

After a period of trying to prove pessimists wrong, I have to admit that it is true.

If you don't have a permit to work in Switzerland, it is very difficult to find work here.

I would never say it's impossible. It's just very very difficult. You need something in your resume that makes you irreplaceable, or you need the right marketing to sell this very expensive product (meaning you) to companies. I'm saying these things to put anyone off. But agreeing with the above statement is not pessimism, it is pure rationalism. Of course, you can fight the tide and get yourself a job, but start by thinking up a good plan. I'll cross fingers for you! In the meantime, I'll be waiting for my permit. ;)

I hope this helps you guys,
thank you for reading
and
please, please never give up on your dreams!
