Something Simple

Something Simple

So…while I’ve been staring at a blank page for around half an hour, waiting for inspiration to strike, I’ve had about a million random thoughts going through my head: the annoying moment my hands gets so sweaty that my iPhone screen stops reacting to my swipes (I even did a quick Google search to see how other people with hyperhidrosis… Read more →

Leg Weather

Leg Weather

Attention trend hunters, sunseekers and cool kids, summer is officially on its way (this time for real). So do your pasty pins a favour and give them some well-deserved Vitamin D in a sassy pair of – drumroll please – CULOTTES…what else? Haha…I promised you the return of the culottes, didn’t I? The culottes game is stronger than ever, and… Read more →

Florals and Fringes

Florals and Fringes

Florals and fringes, fringes and florals – they’re here, they’re there, they’re everywhere – don’t even try to outrun them this summer. While the floral trend is as omnipresent as ever, fringes are clearly celebrating a banging comeback. Embrace them on the edges of bags, skirts, on the side of trousers or jacket sleeves to make a lasting impression this… Read more →

Spot the Difference

Spot the Difference

I give you five seconds to spot the difference between this look and my previous three outfit posts. Can you see it? No? Look down…further down, theeeere you go! It’s my footwear, yes. I finally doffed my beloved sneakers and donned a pair of high heels. Kinda weird to see me in a pair of heels after all of the… Read more →

Transeasonal Challenges

Transeasonal Challenges

Transeasonal dressing can be so much fun – giving your wardrobe a seasonal makeover, playing with the latest trends, discovering new old favourites – but it doesn’t come without its challenges. How do you stay comfortably warm without breaking out in sweats if it’s super cold one minute and super hot the next? Layering is usually the answer – and… Read more →

Oldies

Oldies

At the risk of sounding like the Antichrist, I have to admit that Facebook isn’t really my thing anymore. Apparently, today’s youth doesn’t use Facebook at all. Can somebody under 20 confirm, please? I have no idea what is and isn’t hip among teens these days. Anyways, I’m going off topic. There’s one thing left I love about Facebook. It… Read more →

What Defines Us

What Defines Us

Sometimes doors close. Sometimes we have to let go. Sometimes we need to let things come to an end. These words of wisdom may sound completely cheesy, and easier said than done, but they’re very important to remember. It’s simple really. Just cry your heart out, cut yourself some slack, embrace the next morning, and then lean back, take a… Read more →

External Influences

External Influences

I hate to admit it, but I recently realised that the looks I choose to wear on a daily basis are much less a reflection of my mood, my soul, my inner self, than they are of my surroundings, the city I’m in, the people I am out with. That is not to say that I would ever compromise on… Read more →

The Apple of my Eye

The Apple of my Eye

At the risk of sharing just a tad too much of my personal live with the rest of the world, I kinda feel like talking about the apple of my eye today – my little power duo. Or should I call them the appleS of my eyeS? They’re both very unique characters, so I guess I should really be using… Read more →

Upside Down

Upside Down

Beauty. Beauty is an elusive concept. It may lie in the eyes of the beholder, but even those eyes have a change of heart sometimes. According to science, symmetry is perceived as beautiful. The more symmetrical somebody’s facial features are the more attractive they look to others. But what about love, and hate? Often our feelings for a person determine… Read more →

#NeverEnough

#NeverEnough

#NeverEnough! The perfect hashtag for an avid shopaholic like me, and of course every fashion, beauty, travel and food blogger out there, and basically everyone with a steady income stream, and probably everyone else too. #NeverEnough…who doesn’t want more? We all want more of one or the other thing. Some of us can’t get enough of shoes, others are lipstick… Read more →

Giving Back

Giving Back

What I am about to tell you may sound completely crazy – and I can’t quite believe it myself – but in the last two months I’ve literally managed to get rid of almost 90kg worth of clothes, shoes, bags and accessories. Some of the stuff went to friends and family, some went straight into the bin, but most of… Read more →

Final Destination

Final Destination

So after two months of packing and unpacking, soul-searching and moving I have finally reached my final destination – Berlin. The last few weeks have been a whirlwind of all sorts of emotions. Some good, some bad, but all part of the process of getting settled in a new country, a new hometown, a new home. Home is where the… Read more →

The Duster Coat

The Duster Coat

The only thing I regret about this duster coat is not buying it any earlier. In fact, I regret not buying any duster coat earlier. I always imagined their oversized slouchiness would drown my petite stature. I had tried on many trench coats before, and every single one of them looked a little unflattering around my narrow shoulders and wide… Read more →

Experimenting

Experimenting

Look at that frown Ladies and Gentlemen! I promise you, this is not the frown of a hitwoman, who just left a murder scene…no…This frown, my lovely readers, is merely that of a woman with extremely light-sensitive eyes, who forgot her sunglasses at home. Dommage! If this pretty head wasn’t firmly attached… Anywho, now that we’ve addressed the elephant in… Read more →
