Hello Guys,

here is a little photo diary of what I did together with Swatch last week in Switzerland. Swatch asked me if I would be interested in coming to Switzerland to watch the Swatch Skiers Cup 2015 that consists of a few days of ski competitions: the back country slope styles competitions (off piste skiing) and a big mountains competition

So some of you might wonder: Les Berlinettes is a fashion Blog so why is she going to watch a ski competition?! Well first of all, it’s not only because I write about fashion that I am only interested in fashion. I am a very curious person, and my answer to most things would always be, “sure why not”, and that was also here exactly the case. I’m not the best skier, and I have no idea about ski techniques but I didn’t hesitate one second in participating in this event, because I feel it was something exciting and new, and there is nothing wrong in learning new things.

Once there, I could have hated all the ski competitions, but I loved it and this experience will stay as one of the most exciting things I’ve ever done and a life lesson. We indeed in the first evening watched a movie called Days of my Youth in which we follow the journey of 2 artistic skiers: Cody Townsend and Richard Permin and we learn why they do what they do. Some will call them crazy, because it is really a bit crazy to jump cliffs all by yourself in the mountains, but the way they see life is also very inspiring. One sentence in the movie I remember and won’t forget: “We don’t stop playing because we grow old; we grow old because we stop playing.”

On the second day we went to see the Backcountry slope style competition. I took a helicopter for the first time in my life, which was awesome and we went to watch the world’s best Freeskiers from America and Europe compete against each other at the feet of the famous Matterhorn. The competition consists for the skiers in going down the slopes but what is pretty impressive are the jumps they do from the cliffs. Team Europe won, but for me everyone is a winner since I don’t know much about the techniques of skiing and every jump looked pretty amazing.

Swatch was really cool and let us bloggers experience the lifestyle of those skiers as well. We were able to put on skis as well. Beginners (last time I skied I was 8 years old so iIaneeded a refresh) like me could take a course and then explore by themselves the slopes around Zermatt that are amazing by the way. I would recommend everyone to go there for a winter holiday.

Hello guys,

Today’s article will be on a slightly different topic than usual. I don’t talk about sport very often. I posted a few pictures of my We own the Night Run and training last year, a few pictures at the fitness studio or of my spinning class but I never talked about my sport routine.
There is a reason to this, I don’t have a sport routine.

When it comes to sport I get lazy and bored very easily. I cannot count how many sports I have tried in my life. Starting at age of 6 I did ballet, iceskating, rhythmic gymnastic, taikwando, judo, running, spinning, and more I have probably forgotten about. But the sad thing is, i am still not a fit person. The reason is I start and after a few courses I desert the classes.

I have figured out however that I like sport but I just get bored too quick. What i need is variety.

Now that spring is approaching I am very motivated to finally get fit. Don’t get me wrong i don’t think that i have weight to lose (I would not mind loosing 1-2 Kgs but not more), but what I need is to tone up my body.
So I decided to give myself 3 months to achieve this goal together with Fitengo and Fabletics.

Fitengo is a website that offer a membership that allows you go to several sports clubs in Berlin and therefore try out several sports. So it is perfect for what i need : variety. Yesterday I had my very first yoga class in my street (see picture above) and next week I want to try out Pilates and reformer Pilates at another place.
The cool thing about Fitengo is also that you can go wherever you want. For me it’s perfect, most of the time I am in Mitte or in Kreuzberg so I can go to classes in both districts and I don’t have to pay for two memberships.

Since i will be trying out different sports, I am teaming up with Fabletics for my sport outfits. Fabletics is a membership website co-founded by Hollywood star Kate Hudson, that allows you to get a new sport outfit every month for 49,95Euros, based on your lifestyle and workout preference (you take a quiz to define this at subscription). Sports outfits can be very expensive if you want quality so this is a very good deal. I have 2 Fabletics sport outfits already and I really like them. I have been wearing one of the outfits for a year I would say and even after washing, it is still in very good condition.
For those who don’t like memberships, you can also do normal shopping on the website.
I also like the designs, there is something for every taste and every shape. When you hop on the website you will be asked what part of your body is your favourite and the items will be proposed to you based on this.

I can say that I am ready for my challenge. I will post an update every week on my Instagram account and I will give you final feedback on this challenge in three months, let’s see if I can take on the challenge or not! :)

Fabletics Norwalk tank with integrated Bra available HERE
Fabletics Salar leggings available HERE

amandine fashion blogger berlin germany wearing a cape blue patterned blanket wrap

Cape is a trend since a few months now but i never found one that i really loved until i saw this this. I like the pattern it is perfect all year long. For winter with boots or for summer with shorts. I see that i will keep this cape or blanket wrap a little while.

For those who love more simple styles i found some cape from Fraas on Fashion ID that i really like. See below.

I was wearing :
Cape : New Look
Jeans : Zara
Shoes : Scarosso
