New Beginnings

New Beginnings

For me, the beginning of a new calendar year also marks the beginning of a new year of life. I have officially reached my scary age and with it a point in life where I feel obliged to seriously start thinking about the future. I always tried to live in the here and now. The future? Who knows…I’m still young,… Read more →

Happy People

Happy People

What do you expect from life? Fame? Fortune? Health? I’m gonna be a little greedy and say happiness! Being happy doesn’t always come easy to us, even with a famous surname, a Lamborghini in the garage and a healthy lifestyle. It’s the little things in life that make us truly happy. But it’s often the little things we fail to… Read more →

Lost and Found

Lost and Found

One shopping free week in the countryside – good for my overflowing wardrobe, and even better for my purse. One week turned into two, and before I knew it I had lost my shopping mojo. Not even browsing new collections online – a method that would usually always end up in a crazy shopping frenzy – could get me back… Read more →

Twelve Days of Christmas

Twelve Days of Christmas

Christmas songs. You either hate them or you love them. I belong to the latter group of people, who can listen to one and the same Christmas song – the cheesier the better – 20 times a day, seven days a week without getting sick of it. On the contrary, I just get more and more cheerful and spirited by… Read more →

Not so big City Life

Not so big City Life

Life in London may have turned me into a true urbanite on the outside over the years, but I’ll forever be the nature-loving villager I grew up as at heart. What I am about to tell you may come as a shock to you – especially if you’re still in your teens, but I swear, I’m not THAT old, and… Read more →

Wintour is coming

Wintour is coming

Please excuse the lame pun, but it had to be done. I can’t believe that November is almost over…just a few more days and winter has officially arrived, and what better time to indulge in some all black everything than in winter? Despite the fact that Anna Wintour would never dress in all black, I can’t help but love the… Read more →

My Favourite Spot

My Favourite Spot

Back in March I used to love going down to the River Thames when the tide was low to take outfit pictures. It’s possibly one of the most peaceful spots in London. The only other person I’ve ever come across down there is an elderly lady, who plays catch with her dog. But other than that, I was always by… Read more →

A Wardrobe full of Clothes

A Wardrobe full of Clothes

How do you guys and dolls get dressed in the morning? Sometimes it’s easier than easy, isn’t it? You wake up, it’s dark and rainy outside, and you just know that you won’t be leaving the house in anything but all black everything. However, particularly women tend to have a reputation of having wardrobes full of clothes, but nothing to… Read more →

Back To School

Back To School

There are two themes going on here. The first is pretty obvious – Back To School. I realise that the time for back to school posts has long passed, but hey, there’s always time to dress like a preppy, slightly slutty schoolgirl like Gogo Yubari from Kill Bill, right? I spent two years of my young life in boarding school… Read more →

Danger Danger

Danger Danger

Gosh…I don’t know how to put this without causing yet another stir at the MI6 aka the British Secret Intelligence Service. Could I be any more dramatic? Probably not, but fact is that I unintentionally happened to make the MI6 panic a little – if only for a second – with this exact photo shoot the other day. Just talking… Read more →

The Snow Queen

The Snow Queen

One of my favourite stories as a child was that of the Snow Queen, a fairy tale written by Dutch poet Hans Christian Andersen. The tale represents the struggle between good and evil, with the beautiful and fierce Snow Queen as the villain, and sweet Gerda as the heroine, who frees Kai from the spell of the troll-mirror splinter with… Read more →

The Jumpsuit Conundrum

The Jumpsuit Conundrum

No other country loves the one-piece as much as my beloved England. Jumpsuits, playsuits, rompers, onesies…you name it. In order to fit in, embrace the culture, and share the love of the popular one-piece, I went on the hunt for the perfect jumpsuit aaaaaaand I came back empty handed. In a vain attempt to eventually make this piece of clothing,… Read more →

The Classic Blazer

The Classic Blazer

Fashions come and go, taste changes and style evolves, but there are some things that will never change. Despite having undergone a serious style evolution from girly girl to tomboy to bombshell to preppy fashionista to Barbie and back to tomboy, I’ve always had a special place in my heart for blazers – the more unusual the better. In my… Read more →
