A few weeks ago I was at the launch event of the Smashbox x The Hoodwitch Make-up Collection. Of course I tested the products afterwards for you with great pleasure. The special thing about the products is that they contain real gems. A really successful collaboration between Smashbox and The Hoodwitch. Crystalized and this not only because it’s unique in design, but also in terms of ingredients.



The Cover Shot Crystalized Eyeshadow palette from Smashbox x The Hoodwitch is an absolute must-have. Rarely have I welcomed such a beautiful make-up palette on my beauty shelf. The 8 nuances can be wonderfully combined. As usual with Smashbox, the colors are super-pigmented, have no fallout and can thus be applied nicely opaque. Incidentally, the colors are inspired by crystals – from smoky quartz to rose quartz you will find everything.




Are you looking for the perfect summerglow? Then the Smashbox x The Hoodwitch Cristalized Primerizer is just right for you. A light primer that makes your skin glowy. At the same time it moisturizes, I just like to use just the Primerizer with some powder makeup on it. Since it is not greasy, it is also suitable for oily skin, moreover, it does not settle in the pores.


Smashbox crystal clarity


The Smashbox x The Hoodwitch Crystal Clarity Primer Water I use every day as a setting spray or in between on warmer days. The fragrances of the Crystalized Photo Finish Primer Water are inspired by Rose Quartz, Amethyst & Black Tourmaline. It also moisturizes. I love the scent.




You love nice packaging? Then you should take a closer look at the Smashbox x The Hoodwitch Always on Liquid Eyeshadow. I was allowed to test it and I am thrilled. The pigmentation and the finish are amazing. The durability is also unbeatable. The Always on Liquid Eyeshadow lasts up to 12 hours without settling or smearing.




My first Smashbox product ever was a matte liquid lipstick, since then, the brand has cast me under its spell. The Smashbox x The Hoodwitch always on Liquid Lipstick in the color Femimystic is no exception. You can expect a dull, long-lasting liquid lipstick with sparkling crystals. Inspired by tourmaline, amethyst and titanium quartz, it provides radiant lips and positive energies.


Smashbox x The Hoodwitch Gloss Angeles Lipgloss


Since I received a package with lip glosses from Smashbox a few months ago, they are in constant use. Now my collection welcomed the Smashbox x The Hoodwitch Gloss Angeles Lip Gloss in the color Practical Magic.


Smashbox x The Hoodwitch Gloss Angeles Lipgloss


Here you can see the swatches of the two lip products – I love it. And the best thing about all the products presented is that they are cruelty-free and vegan.

MAC Lipstick Maccosmetics


Mac Cosmetics lipsticks have been some of my absolute favorites for years now. Of course I was especially happy about some new colors joining my collection. Every year a huge highlight to me is the Vivaglam lipstick by Mac Cosmetics – this year he even celebrates an anniversary.


MAC Vivaglam Lipstick


The Mac Cosmetics Vivaglam lipstick is something very special. Because all the sales proceeds are getting donated by Mac Cosmetics for good causes to support the health and rights of people of all ages, races and gender – and this already since 25 years! Wow, a really great thing that I look forward to every year. There are always celebrities who promote the Vivaglam lipstick too. This year, too, there is a beautiful color, as you can see on the cover picture, I love her already. There is still the good conscience for the beautiful lipstick. The edition is limited.



At Mac Cosmetics there are even more beautiful matte lipsticks to discover. Under the motto “Meet my matte” it is the goal to find yours – even the Vivaglam I lipstick is a matte one btw. There are of course other beautiful finishes as always. The four pretty lipsticks here are: Smoked Almond, Bosom Friend, Kinkster and Kinda Sexy.


MAC Lipstick Maccosmetics


In addition to the incomparable fragrance and the color intensity, I love the feel on my lips with Mac Cosmetics lipsticks. Whether matte or not, the lipsticks feel comfortable and do not dry out the lips.


Retro Matte Mac Cosmetics


Retro Matte is called the liquid matte lipstick from Mac Cosmetics – so much in advance it holds long and does not dry out your lips. Everything a matte lipstick needs in liquid form, he offers. I also like this light coral shade for the upcoming summer months – a fresh color. The name is Rich & Restless.


Have you already found your perfect matte lipstick?

The Draycott Hotel London


Last week we stayed for a long weekend in the British capital London. For me, this city is always worth a visit, whether for shopping, for cultural or culinary experiences. If you ask me, there is always something new to discover in London. And I had the chance to stay at the beautiful boutique hotel The Draycott in London.


The Draycott Hotel London


The unique 5 star hotel is located in Chelsea London. Surrounded by a well-kept London-style neighborhood. The location is truly unique – as well as the house itself in the typical Brick look, the houses were built around 1890, the conversion to The Draycott Hotel began in 1995. Today the Draycott Hotel has 35 individually decorated rooms. Each is decorated with Edwardian antiques as a tribute to the theater. In each room there is something reminiscent of bygone times, be it a photo or a biography.


The Draycott Hotel London

Drawing Room


Already in the entrance, The Draycott Hotel shines with traditional English and luxurious chic. The staff is extremely courteous and welcomed us immediately and welcomed. Since we arrived a bit early in the hotel, we stayed in the so-called drawing room next to the fireplace.


The Draycott Hotel London


Then I was allowed to make myself comfortable in the Ashcroft Suite. At The Draycott Hotel, there are no room numbers, but room names, and each room has its own story as mentioned before. The Ashcroft Suite offers a wonderful view of the idyllic and private garden. One of my personal highlights, however, was the four-poster bed – it even reminded me of my visit to Versailles two years ago. And believe me, it does not just look royal, to sleep in it is royal too.



My absolute highlight, however, was the fireplace, it gives the room an incomparable coziness. Anyway, we ended the evening after a strenuous shopping day in the city center there.



Of course, I did not mind taking my daily beauty rituals – even on my weekend trip. The bathroom is modern and well equipped. Quickly refreshed the lipstick in the foyer and voilà – ready for the toast champagne at 18 o’clock in the drawing room. Cheers! Every day, guests are served a glass of champagne with snacks.



Am nächsten Morgen gab es noch ein ausgiebiges Frühstück für einen guten Start in den Tag. Dabei durfte frisch gepresster Orangensaft und ein typisch englischer Breakfast Tea natürlich nicht fehlen.



Before we left, we relaxed a bit in the library – which is just beautifully designed and not just for reading and chatting very inviting. So if you are looking for a beautiful, oldfashioned and unique hotel, I highly recommend The Draycott London.

As you know, Sisley is one of my favorite brands. The products are of high quality like no other and convince me time and again with their effectiveness. In the past weeks, I was again able to test some novelties for you, which I would like to introduce to you today.




Let’s start with the – for me personally – most important novelty to the SISLEYOUTH ANTI-POLLUTION. As you may know, our modern lifestyle has brought with it some pitfalls that do not spare the skin. Every day we are exposed to environmental pollution and blue light. Our favorite gadgets like smartphones, laptops and Co. irradiate us with this blue light. Why is that so bad? The blue and unnatural light accelerates skin aging – so it is like in the sunlight – a protection against it necessary.



A powerful antioxidant active cocktail consisting of buckwheat seeds, ginkgo biloba, peas and vitamin E acetate combats free radicals and protects the skin from the damaging effects of all environmental pollution. Highly nutritious, highly hydrating active ingredients from plant sugar compounds, buckwheat seeds and shea butter promote the ability of the epidermis to store water and thus contribute to the optimum supply of water to the skin. The SISLEYOUTH ANTI-POLLUTION is therefore an all-rounder, which also helps reduce signs of tiredness and protects and cares for the skin as a whole. The wonderful scent of essential oils ensures a wellness moment par excellence already in the morning when applied.




Now to these two great novelties SISLEŸA L’INTÉGRAL ANTI-ÂGE CRÈME CONCENTRÉE FERMETÉ CORPS and SISLEŸA L’INTÉGRAL ANTI-ÂGE CONCENTRÉ ANTI-ÂGE MAINS. Two anti-aging products for body and hands.




The SISLEŸA L’INTÉGRAL ANTI-ÂGE CONCENTRÉ ANTI-ÂGE MAINS is not just any hand cream. Rather, it is a comprehensive high-tech care that combats all visible signs of age of the hands such. Wrinkles, pigment spots, loss of density and tone or dry skin. It is not for nothing that people say that the true age of a woman can be recognized by her hands. Because often hands are wrongly neglected in the care and while the face is spoiled with creams and serums, the hands have the disadvantage. The contained Lindera extract supports the cell renewal process, extracts of the silk acacia supply the cells with energy and a protein complex of yeast and soy increases the life of the cells. The hand care is very pleasant to apply and absorbs quickly, one immediately senses an improvement and hydration of the skin. Perfect even for a nursing quickening in the office – without blurring the keyboard.

We all wish to have well-groomed, delicate skin. However, so that the skin does not lose its elasticity over time, anti-aging care is also appropriate for the body. The SISLEŸA L’INTÉGRAL ANTI-ÈGE CRÈME CONCENTRÉE FERMETÉ CORPS contains exactly the right active ingredients and also smells wonderful. It is particularly useful in places affected by loss of strength such as the abdomen, inside of the arms and thighs and the buttocks. The extract of the silk acacia, the Lindera extract and a protein complex from yeast and soy help here as well. They specifically support the cell renewal process (energy, biorhythms and longevity) and thus ensure an optimal anti-aging effect. Because with age, the functions of the essential components of the dermis subsidence: In youth, they are resistant and elastic, but with time their production decreases and thus the elasticity of the skin. This process is counteracted by the extracts of soy fiber, dill and padina pavonica. The SISLEŸA L’INTÉGRAL ANTI-ÈGE CRÈME CONCENTRÉE FERMETÉ CORPS has a wonderfully light and at the same time rich, so rich in active ingredients, held texture, which can be incorporated well into the skin. I use them each evening after showering – also to support the regeneration process of the skin during the night.

In Guerlain, the foundation also has a great fragrance – a woody fragrance with a hint of musk, a top note of white almond, a hint of white tea in the middle note, sandalwood and notes of white musk and tonka bean.

Rouge G de Guerlain


Rouge G de Guerlain


I introduced you to Rouge G de Guerlain once before about a year ago I was allowed to pick and put together my first personalized lipstick. Already there I was blown away by the idea. Now even more great shades and shades have come to it.



The snake skin look was also my choice 1 year ago. Now two more nice covers have come to my collection. On the one hand it is the color hype purple and on the other hand power chis. Incidentally, I find the lipstick also great as a gift, soon is yes, for example. Mother’s Day. Of course, I also like the integrated double mirror. And every time I refresh that lipstick on the road, people ask me their name.



The new lipstick nuances in my collection are Rouge G N ° 05 Mat and Rouge G N ° 75 two wonderful shades. In addition, the lipsticks and the covers can of course always be combined with each other again – just as you like. Incidentally, the Rouge G lipsticks contain herbal polymers and silvery microcrystals with reflective properties for long-lasting, intense and vibrant colors. Added to this are jojoba and mango butter for better supply of the lips with nutrients as well as hyaluronic acid and guggul resin for smoothed and padded lips. A floriental vanilla fragrance completes the overall concept.


Guerlain – Météorites Highlighter Duo




If you ask me about my current favorite highlighter, then the answer is easy for me, because the Guerlain Météorites Highlighter Duo is not only visually gorgeous. But of course it is not difficult to notice with the beautiful embossing and the stylish case.



Not only the design is successful – on the one hand, of course I love the fragrance as always with Guerlain and on the other hand gives the highlighter so wonderful reflexes. He also exudes the desire for spring and summer.

How do you like the products?

Makeup L'oreal rouge signature ink maybellin Snapscara


The first days of spring have already aroused the desire for new colors with lots of sunshine. Perfect for gaudy colors on the lips are the new L’Oréal Rouge Signature Matte Ink. 24H lipsticks. For a natural look for your eyelashes I can recommend you the new Snapscara Mascara of Maybelline.


Maybelline – Snapscara Mascara


maybelline Snapscara


The new Snapscara Mascara by Maybelline provides supple volume without clumping. It is easy to remove – even with warm water. Nevertheless, it holds super good, I wore the mascara, for example yesterday for the video shoot of Happyonion.ch and it hold the whole day. The Snapscara is a so-called Tubing Mascara, because its formula contains no waxes, but based on polymers – these are film-forming agents. The mascara covers the eyelashes like a mantle and prevents the mascara from smearing. When removing make-up then small “Tubes”.



With the curved brush, the mascara can be applied very easily and if desired also in several layers. I especially like the natural finish – just because it really does not smudge. My new favorite mascara.


L’Oréal – Rouge Signature Matte Ink. 24H


L'oreal rouge signature ink


The L’Oréal Rouge Signature Matte Ink 24H is a liquid ink lipstick with a matte finish. It is available in 12 ultra-matt statement colors. I was allowed to test them all.


L'oreal rouge signature ink Review


The color result is super intense in all nuances, thanks to its highly pigmented formula. Long-lasting color result: up to 24 hours hold.



In addition to the design itself, I like the applicator very well. With the applicator the color can be applied precisely. The formula is very light and feels almost like water on the lips. If you have dry lips, you may want to exfoliate and care for them before using them.


L'oreal rouge signature ink Review


Here you can see the swatches of the 12 shades:

  • 103 I Enjoy
  • 104 I Rebel
  • 105 I Rule
  • 106 I Speak up

  • 112 I Achieve

A highlight is the new NARS Skin Deep Eye Palette with beautiful colors and an incredibly good pigmentation to create beautiful looks. Fallout and Co. is not an issue at NARS anyway. The eyeshadows are creamy and can be applied and blended very well with each other. I also like to use the very dark shades as a replacement for my kajal to create a softer look. The colors are exactly mine, I love those browns and oranges, they emphasize my blue eyes optimally.

Even the Super Radiant Booster is limited. It can be used in different ways, for Glow in the whole face you can mix it with your foundation and apply it. If you like it intensively, you can also apply it under the foundation in advance.

NARS - Radiant Creamy Concealer


The concealer is very easy to apply and has a great opacity, dark circles and Co. disappear. Of course it is important to choose the right color. Here I recommend you to use as a highlighter to choose a color that is two tones lighter than the natural skin tone, and apply these in the appropriate areas of the face. For more dimension and contour, however, you should choose a color that is two tones darker than the natural skin tone, and conceal the concealer on the cheeks and temples and along the hairline and jawline.

Skin Care Favoriten


During the past few months I have again diligently tested the novelties in terms of skin care of my favorite brands. There are again many great products, which I would like to bring you closer to today.


Guerlain – Abeille Royale Double R Serum


Guerlain Abeille Royale


You like luxurious care? Then you should definitely take a closer look at the Abeille Royale Double R Renew & Repair Serum by Guerlain. It combines the Abeille Royale technology to correct visible signs of aging with a gentle exfoliation and thus most effectively counteracts the loss of tone and firmness, wrinkles, pale complexion, skin defects and enlarged pores. The serum contains as active ingredients the honey and royal jelly of black bees from the island of Ouessant. The gentle peeling with New Skin effect accelerates cell renewal in the epidermis without irritating the skin.


Guerlain Abeille Royale


The Abeille Royale Double R Serum by Guerlain impresses in advance by its wonderful, luxurious fragrance. The two “phases” of the serum combine after getting out of the bottle. The serum can then be incorporated very well into the skin, it feels very light and does not greasy. Therefore, the serum is also good for oily skin. In particular, I like to apply it in the evenings before night care, but it also unfolds its effect under the make-up. The skin feels hydrated and relaxed after use, and the Abeille Royale Double R Serum immediately gives it a radiant complexion. The serum is very easy to dose and therefore very economical to use.


Glamglow – Starpotion Liquid Charcoal Clarifying Oil


Glamglow Starpotion


Glamglow is known for its extraordinary and innovative products – no matter how much I love the face masks of Glamglow, that’s no secret either. The Starpotion Liquid Charcoal Clarifying Oil is a black oil which becomes transparent when applied. It clears the complexion with the help of antioxidants, vitamin C and salicylic acid to protect the skin from toxins and environmental influences. The contained aloe vera and turmeric nourish and nourish the skin.



I do not know any comparable products, I was all the more excited about the results and also the application of the Glamglow Starpotion Liquid Charcoal Clarifying Oil. As you can see takes the oil with a pipette and it looks black in advance. However, once it is spread on the skin it becomes transparent. I like to use the oil in the evening – so it can be undisturbed the whole night. Especially with impure oily skin, this oil is because it contains salicylic acid. I have the oil very well and the application is easy.

P.S. It can also be applied very well to a Glamglow mask for extra care.


Guerlain – Pore Minimizer


Guerlain Pore Minimizer


I already used the last drop of the Guerlain Pore Minimizer Treatment. Even after the first application, I realized that it can be wonderfully used as a primer replacement. It mattifies the skin wonderfully and the make-up is also very good. The Pore Minimizer narrows and minimizes pores instantly, visibly and long-lasting. The combination of clay, zinc and vegetable extract makes it possible to specifically correct all types of pores, freeing up clogged pores and allowing the skin to breathe. Apply the Pore Minimizer after cleansing and before make-up – you can also apply a serum before. I also really like the small packaging, which can be taken along well when traveling.


Clarins – Pore Control


Clarins Pore Controle


And I’ve tested another pore serum, the Clarins Pore Control Serum. Plant active ingredients ensure a more even skin appearance here. Although this serum does not have quite as much matting effect as that of Guerlain, it combines well with the skin and feels light. The product did not irritate my skin. I prefer to wear it on my make-up days off. If I want a completely dull make-up finish, I use a primer. For the glowy look you can use it without an additional primer.


Pore Control Clarins


In particular, I like the light texture, it will definitely provide a great care in the summer without makeup.


Sisley – Soin Velours aux Fleurs de Safran Creme


Sisley Soin Velour aux Fleurs de Safran Creme


One of Sisley’s core competencies lies in effective skin care. Sisley has once again proven this with the Soin Velours aux Fleurs de Saffron Cream. Especially in winter time, my skin has to fight against dryness. The Soin Velours aux Fleurs de Safran cream moisturizes the skin and reduces skin irritation. It also helps to restore the lipid content of the skin. This balances the skin. The cream is applied to the face and neck in the morning and evening, because it has a dual mode of action. During the day, the skin is protected and repaired at night.




I especially need to highlight the incredible texture of the cream. At first glance, the cream is very rich, this is it, but on the skin, the cream feels nourishing but not greasy or too lush. It is very easy to work into the skin and leaves no unpleasant greasy film – as is often the case with some rich cream’s. Sisley proves again the competence in textures of cream’s. The protective mechanism of the cream was especially noticeable in winter sports, when the skin was spared the negative influences of the cold. And even in the morning after getting up, the skin feels regenerated and recovered.


Worth mentioning are the highly concentrated active ingredients, in which Soins Velours aux Fleurs de Safran are in particular the following active substances:

  • Buckwheat seed extract: protects the lipids from oxidation
  • Shea butter: provides nutrients and regenerates
  • Saffron flower extract: has a soothing effect
  • Three oils with high levels of omega 6, 7, and 9 (cottonseed, macadamia, and sunflower): immediately enhance the skin’s protective hydrolipid film by biometrically balancing out dehydration
  • Japanese purple grape extract: compensates for lipid deficiency and permanently binds water in the skin
  • Extract of Padina pavonica: replenishes the water reserves in deeper skin layers
  • Complex moisture-binding ingredients (wheat glucose derivative, vegetable glycerin and provitamin B5): compensates for dehydration immediately






There are also great Skin Care News to discover at Origins and of course I have tested the three new products in the past weeks as well.


Origins – Ginzing Energy-Boosting Gel Moisturizer


Origins - Ginzing Energy-Boosting Gel Moisturizer


The Origins Ginzing Energy-Boosting Gel Moisturizer is specially designed for oily and combination skin. He has a very light gel-creamy texture. When you open the cream, the first thing that strikes you is the pleasant scent, because the cream smells fresh and fruity with citrus fruits and makes you feel good in the morning. The Ginzing Energy-Boosting Gel Moisturizer contains stimulating extract from the coffee bean, which leaves the skin looking fresh and radiant. The contained ginseng revitalises and restores the skin’s natural elasticity. For me a wonderful moisturizer for every day, which cares for the skin well.


Origins – Ginzing Eye on the Go


Origins Ginzing Eye on the Go


The Pendent to the Moisturizer is the Origins Ginzing Eye on the Go. It helps reduce puffiness around the eyes and diminishes dark circles. In turn, ginseng provides for an energy boost, which makes tired skin awake again. Coffee beans are effective against skin irritations and Magnolia extract prevents irritation that promotes dark circles under the eyes. The application is easy by using the sponge applicator and the light texture is feels so good on the skin. It also contains natural optical brighteners with mineral pearlescent pigments, which make tired eyes shine. Eye on the Go is suitable for quick and easy eye care for every morning – but also in between for extra care. The tube can also be very good in your handbag everywhere.


Origins – High-Potency Night-A-Mins Oil-Free Resurfacing Cream


Origins High-Potency Night-A-Mins


Now to my absolute favorite one of the three novelties the High-Potency Night-A-Mins Oil-Free Resurfacing Cream by Origins. The cream is also suitable for oily and combination skin. It contains extract of the chestnut and AHAs, which are extracted from plants and fruits and gently exfoliate the skin. A blend of vitamins and minerals boosts the skin’s resilience so it can protect itself from harmful environmental influences. Barley extract and wheat extract hydrate the skin and the combination of essential oils of neroli, valerian and orange as well as vanilla extract give the night care of Origins its a pleasant scent that has a calming and relaxing effect. I apply the Night-A-Mins each evening after cleansing and my serum – in the next morning, the skin is super fresh again.

Sisley Makeup


Recently I took part at the event of Sisley in Zurich, where the new products were presented and I was allowed to make up with them immediately. Already there it became apparent that the new Sisley Mascara So Volume could become my new favorite Masara. I also tested the l’orchidée blush highlighter in the new color Corail. Ready for testing was then the instant Eclat primer from Sisley.


Sisley – So Volume Mascara


Sisley So Volume Mascara


You are looking for a nourishing mascara that gives you volume? Then the So Volume Mascara by Sisley could become your favorite too. So Volume Mascara’s formula improves eyelash density with vitamin-containing peptide, cotton proteins and a ceramide-like active ingredient. The eyelashes are thus denser, stronger, longer and more resistant with each application. The growth of eyelashes is stimulated with arginine and its beauty by pro-vitamin B5, extract of Japanese cherry blossoms and castor oil. The fact that the formula of mascara has a lot of care to offer, I can already feel when applying clearly on the creamy consistency and ease on the eyelashes.


Sisley So Volume Mascara


I also really like the brush – as you may know, I prefer “normal” brushes. The brush separates the eyelashes nicely when applied and envelops each eyelash with color – without sticking to it. For the perfect result, first apply the mascara in the middle of the eye to open the view. Then apply the brush to the base of the upper lash line, then spread the texture by turning the brush upwards to the tips. To separate the eyelashes perfectly, it is important to first drive on the outer corner of the eye and then return to the eyelashes of the inner corner of the eye. The mascara can be applied in 2-3 coats for an even more intense result.


By the way, the So Volume Mascara is available in the colors Deep Black / Deep Blue and Deep Brown


I love it.


Sisley – l’orchidée Blush-Highlighter Corail


Sisley L'orchidee Corail


To be honest, the Sisley l’orchidée blush highlighters are an absolute must-have for me. Maybe even the most beautiful blushes on the beauty market right now. The orchid as an embossing is simply breathtakingly beautiful and brings me so much joy and this only when I open the blush. This spring / summer, there is also a new shade of color available called Corail. A beautiful coral perfect for spring and summer. The luxurious blush highlighter contains the extract of white lily.


I like to use it as a blush on the cheekbones. At the event, I also received the following tip from the Sisley Makeup Artist: For a fresh, radiant look you can work the l’orchidée Blush-Highlighter Corail into the eyelid fold to open the view. I love this little trick, so give it a try.


Sisley – Instant Éclat Primer


Sisley Instant Eclat Primer


Somewhat longer in the range of Sisley is the Instant Éclat Primer. Time for me to finally test it. I use the primer on the whole face underneath the foundation. The Instant Éclat Primer instantly radiates the skin, reduces shadow areas and signs of tiredness. The skin looks smoother and even without glittering. Instant Éclat contains a cocktail of 4 active ingredients with complementary action. The contained kiwi extract improves the energy and vitality of the skin. Holly extract has a strengthening effect. The funnel algae extract cushions the skin by strengthening the skin’s own “water cushion”. Then vegetable glycerin moisturizes.


Sisley Instant Eclat Primer


The texture of Instant Éclat is non-greasy and therefore also suitable for oily skin like mine. I especially like that after applying the foundation can be applied immediately on it. Especially with matt foundation the Instant Éclat Primer helps to achieve a very natural result. The durability is extended. If you have oily skin, I recommend you to abstain from using any other moisturizer and to apply only the Instant Éclat after your serum in the morning so that the make-up lasts the whole day.
