Ski Vlog Glacier 3000, Switzerland

Wednesday my man and I hit the slopes again, this time in Glacier 3000. Since the weather was absolutely gorgeous I decided to bring my GoPro Hero 5 Black, attached to my awesome new Alpina Griva Visor helmet, to shoot some more on-piste footage. And I think that this time I managed to capture the sensation of speed a lot better. My first ski vlog of the season, even though I was going like a cannon ball, just felt so slow and it kind of bugged me. But in this second video I feel like the speed is coming across much more realistically. Just a quick FYI: because of the heavy snow fall the night before only a couple of pistes were prepped and we did most of our skiing off-piste on unprepped terrain. I didn’t want to risk losing or breaking my GoPro in the deep snow, so I didn’t film any of the risky bits and only shot action footage on the prepped parts. I did get some awesome off-piste panoramas for you guys though! And I even managed to capture a live avalanche!

What did you think of the video? Do you ski?


Video | Ski Vlog Leysin, Switzerland

Last Sunday a friend and I went on an impromptu skiing trip to Leysin here in Switzerland and since I finally solved the memory card issue on my GoPro Hero 5 Black – hurrah! – I decided to shoot some on-piste footage and make a short ski vlog. Make sure to hang in there for the full 4 minutes of downhill fun though, because the longer we run the better it gets! Ready to join in on the action?

Video | Another (Very Snowy) Winter Walk

Remember that early morning snow walk I took you on last week? Well, since then it’s been snowing a lot more – and I mean a LOT – so I decided to head into the forest again and take you on another snow walk. Only with a lot more snow this time. And a beautiful early sunset to accompany me rather than a sunrise.

I know, I know, three and a half minutes of snow footage – with the occasional acte de présence of yours truly – probably isn’t everyone’s cup of tea – most of you are here for beauty after all – but what can I say, I just love winter here in Switzerland and I can’t help but shove(l) my snow obsession in other people’s faces.

Is it snowing where you live? What is your favorite season?


Video | Make-Up + Jewelry Storage

I’m not gonna lie, I probably never would have shot today’s video if it wasn’t for my new GoPro Hero 5 Black. When the memory card for my new GoPro finally arrived I wanted to shoot some footage right away and since we probably won’t go skiing for another couple weeks I figured I might as well record a video for the blog with it. The only problem was that I didn’t have any inspiration. I already had my face on, so I couldn’t do a Get Ready With Me video. And since I’m an impatient little girl with zero restraint I obviously wasn’t going to wait until the next morning to try my camera. So in the end I decided to do a video on how I store my make-up and jewelry. I’ve been seriously downsizing my make-up and jewelry collection lately – freebies for all! – and in doing so I’ve come up with some rather creative storage options. Take a look!

What do you say, should I shoot more blog videos with my new GoPro? How do you store your make-up and jewelry?
