Friday Favorites – Cats, Cosmetics and Jumps


22. March 2013 by swissfitchick

Good morning!

This week was long and I am so glad it’s Friday. This weekend will hopefully be the last for me to study since I have my exam on Monday! If I spoil it though…..ok, let’s not think about this.

Let’s continue on some great stuff from the week and make sure weekend is moving in the right direction….just like my current favorite song.

Please watch this video with the link below(it’s only 12 seconds) !!


This is my trainer and when I saw this video, I was so impressed and also jealous. And proud. I am sure it must feel incredible to be able to jump like a cat on a thing that is 1m26 high. I hope the link works, I had some troubles posting it.

Talkingย about animals….I saw this in front of my house the other day. I had no clue this was even existing, but…..I wouldn’t buy these for my car. Would you?

But what I definitely would ย buy is a flat like this! I know I already said that on Tuesday, but just so you know…..

It looks exactly like the holiday residence in Spain and makes me feel like being on an island of peace! ๐Ÿ™‚

Food was also a favorite this week. I did not create all the good stuff I planned, but still had some delicioucy appearing in the kitchen:

This week I started my project to cut back on workout time. Withย MORE than 10-12 hours a week of workouts, Iย am overdoing it. I struggle with it, but I absolutely want to make it happen also to achieve my LEAN-goal. I did this guided Savasana if I started to feel giddy and wanted to head out for a run:

And Iย just kept myself busy with trying new cosmetics! I used this line in the past already and LOVED it. It is expensive, but it lasts forever, it is organic and my skin loves it.

If I workout at home, I do my exercises barefeet. Tabatas, Jumps Rope, TRX – barefeet. It is my favorite way to workout, and even in the coldest winterdays I hardly ever wear something on my feet. I love the feeling of tapping bare on the floor. Ergo, my skin is dry – and the one and only I am successful with is the ordinary blue Nivea Cream. Personally, I call it the best cream for dry feet ot hands.

Ok, that’s it – now let’s jump into the weekend!! I found this video of me:

It was made in 2008 in the Italian Part of Switzerland. Despite my scream, Bungee Jumping is great fun. Really.


Did you ever do Bungee Jumping or something similar? I did a lot – Skydiving, Bridge Jumping, Canyoning and I jumped from a Tower Krane once. I was young and insane.

What is your favorite cosmetic line?

Happy Weekend lovelies!!!

  1. Haha those Teddy rims are ridiculous – I’d definitely never put something like that on my car. And that’s so freakin’ cool that you did all that jumping! I’ve never done it before, but it’s something I’m seriously considering… Skydiving in particular is what I really want to do. As for cosmetics, right now I’d have to say that Chanel is my favorite line, but it kind of changes randomly depending how my skin is feeling.

    Happy Friday, love!

    Hooray for Friday!
    Nom nom especially that Protein Cookie Dough with Almond Butter and everything else and then go skydiving – how fun would this be? ๐Ÿ˜€ Sorry, I’m bad! I would be too scared for anything like it.
    You’d be surprised how little cosmetics I use. I use this forever and not planning changing anything. That’s it. Nothing more for face.
    And I wish to live in the place like you have pictured here. Can’t look away. So beautiful.
    Have a great weekend yourself, sweetie!

    • That Vichy cream sounds so good. I don’t use a lot of cosmetics either, but I have 8904857363 wrinkles around my eyes so a bit of serum twice a day is needed ๐Ÿ™‚

  3. Danielle says:

    Nice work on cutting back on the workouts! That’s great! I’m not sure I could go through with bungee jumping! I think I’d be terrified ๐Ÿ˜‰ Happy Friday Lucie!

  4. That cookie dough looks ah-maz-ing!!! I need to make that!

    Happy Friday, and good luck studying for your exam!! ๐Ÿ™‚

  5. Lisa says:

    That protein cookie dough looks amazing!!
    That’s so neat you’ve done all that jumping! I’m super impressed, I can’t imagine.
    I’m so afraid of everything haha.
    I don’t necessarily have a favorite cosmetics line. I like mac for eyeshadows, laura mercier or bobby brown for bronzer/brush/foundation. And so on haha.
    Good luck studying and happy weekend love!

  6. I need/want HAVE TO HAVE those teddy bear rims! That is the cutest thing I have ever seen! Those chocolate chips really do fuel the soul, I know so because my day is just THAT much better with a little chocolate in the am ๐Ÿ™‚ I can’t wait until I run out of my makeup so I can try origins, I love that its organic! Hope you have a great weekend + I know you will ACE that test! Love + Shine CourtStar

  7. Those teddy rims are a bit much for my taste! And oh goodness, I need to try that protein cookie dough. it looks so good!

  8. First of all…OMG, I can’t believe you went bungee jumping!!! The closest I’ve ever (and WILL ever) come was when I let some friends in high school talk me into a bungee jumping-type ride at an amusement park. Instead of going straight down, it was more of a wide arc. I swear I about peed my pants! Lol

    Seriously, those hub caps are the most ridiculous thing I’ve seen all week! Who does that?!

    I’m drooling over your bowl of protein cookie dough! What all do you mix in? It looks so fluffy!

    And lastly, the main reason I wanted to comment…I saw your HFF submission on Meg’s blog and I just wanted to let you know that I am SO extremely proud of you sweetie! I can only imagine how difficult it is to let go of something that has become such a big part of your life. But just think about all the wonderful things you can do with that extra time? Like bake me cookies! ๐Ÿ˜‰ But seriously…I love you!! xoxox

    • Thank you so much for your sweet comment girl! Bungee Jumping is addicting, believe me, I would do itmweekly if I had the money :>

      I mixed eggwhites with protein powder, almond butter, cocoa and chocolate chips and cooked it like a scramble in a skillet. It tastes like the most decadent chocolate cake, I felt almost sick when I was finished ๐Ÿ™‚ surely enough I still craved some more, apahahah! ๐Ÿ˜‰

      Thanks so much for encouraging me! It is not easy, but I am working hard on it and I know I’ll get there!

  9. I love teddy bears.. but really teddy bear rims? That’s a bit ridiculous & completely unnecessary. && a few other things;

    1. I am super jealous that you went bungee jumping. Bungee jumping USED to be something I had always wanted to do, however now… yeah not so much! I’m completely terrified that I’d crash & die upon landing ๐Ÿ˜ฆ
    2. I am SO proud of you for everything you are doing when it comes to workouts. I know it’s not easy, but you your determination will drive you forward. I promise โค
    3. Come cook for me.. please??!!

  10. Yum – lots of delicious food pics in here. I love the look of the protein cookie dough concoction especially. I agree with you that the teddy bear rims are just a little much!

  11. Oh my goodness, your trainer is AMAZING! I’d love to be able to jump like that, too. I think I’ll chose to not kill myself and stick with the 2-foot box for now, though. ๐Ÿ˜‰

    The teddy wheel spinners are so funny! I’d never put them on my car, but they’re kind of cute? For a five-year-old? ๐Ÿ˜‰

    If you purchase an amazing shabby-chic apartment, can I come move in, too? Remember our cooking/massage deal? Yeah, I’m still on board if you are!

    I LOVE Nivea skin cream! It really is the best! I have so many favorite cosmetic lines, I can’t pick just one! For body butters and lotions, I usually go to the Body Shop; for makeup, I like MAC, Bare Escentuals, Urban Decay and Tarte. But honestly, if a product is good, I’ll buy it! The brand doesn’t matter!

    I’ve never bungee jumped, but it’s something I’d totally do, if I had a good friend go with me. Loved watching your video!

    Hope you had a faaaantastic weekend, Lucie! โค xoxo

Who thought I would ever write again. Link in Bio. โ€š'In essence, love is the consistent embodiment of care, compassion, kindness, and joy toward yourself, your partner, and each other as two interconnected and supported beings. If you encounter those feelings, you can't work around your own vulnerability.

But: there is one emotion that is stronger than fear, and that is forgiveness. For power is never simply a possession but an exercise; power is about how we understand ourselves. If we can forgive, we can let go. If we can let go, we can detach. If we can detach, we find happiness.' #blogger #heartstories #detachment #happiness
