This region might not be as famous as the French Alps, but it's definitely a great idea to visit it. The place will impress you with its original charm and wide selection of services. Unspoiled villages, delicious food, excellent resorts and lovely people – that's what you can expect from Austria.
We chose to stay close to the slopes, so the apart-hotel was located right at the main gondola. Club Hotel Kreischberg**** is a great accommodation with Alpine-style, clean, well-equipped apartments and lovely sauna seance services, what I personally enjoyed a lot. The sauna master explained us the appropriate way to use the sauna, we had the chance to try a great bamboo cream, it made my skin soft. Usually I use honey inside the sauna, just a bit on my cheeks and necks, try it and your skin will feel reborn.
We were really lucky with the weather, we enjoyed so much the sunny days and the perfect snow conditions. We only could stay for 3 days, hope to visit Austria soon again.
1, Black leather trousers by Rag & Bone are paired with a black Joseph jumper. In the mountains it's slippy and cold, it's a good idea to wear flat boots. I like the black Jimmy Choo boots. I added pink and silver details. Look at that bag, so special, made by Valentino. As I'm in love with watches, I always try to add a nice piece to the collection, Omega always represent high quality and creative design to me.
2, The idea was to find a simple, warm skirt (P.A.R.O.S.H.) and turtle neck jumper (Fendi), than make it extravagant with knee-high boots by Ivanka Trump and fur gilet by Fendi. The Stella McCartney bag and the Swarovski watch makes the whole outfit complete.
3, Jumper dress: It feels very comfortable to wear such a nice, relaxed dress. If you choose an outsanding, colorful bag, just like the one by the Parisian Maison Margiela, your outfit won't look boring at all. I added golden rose Chopard watch and John Lewis necklace to reach a bit more elegant look.
Sauna is the best way to warm up and relax during winter time. To achieve the best result, learn here how to use the sauna in a proper way. In case you have any medical high risk conditions, avoid sauna!
If you are not used to sauna, use it on a lower temperature first. If it feels too hot, or you don't feel comfortable anymore, get out immediately. I never stay there longer than 20 minutes. Cool down slowly between the sessions, take your time! I love sauna oils, my two favourite scents are sandalwood and honey. I usually use high-quality, Finnish oils. My routine is having a shower first (mild temperature) and heading to the fresh air. The best is when you have snow. You can also jump in the cold water, but I prefer spending a few minutes outside. Always wait at least 10 minutes between the sessions, take your time, lay down and relax! Don't forget to drink a few sips during your routine, and when you are ready, wait another 15 minutes and drink plenty of water! Hope you found my tips useful! Please share it with your friends!
