Back to the 70s
Style

My favourite spring trend of 2015? The swinging seventies! Although every era does have its charms, I personally never would have thought I would be into the decades of large flower prints, lava lamps and platform shoes. Don’t worry guys, there won’t be glittery shirts or loose satin pants in my future outfits! The lava…

  Say hi to my new Mango buckle boots! I first fell in love with them in the beginning of last season but I didn’t want to spend all of my bucks on yet another pair of black boots… Boy, was I wrong. When I couldn’t find them in store anymore, I obviously regretted not buying them…

Hi beauty lovers! As you have seen in my Estée Lauder video I always end my days with a short moment for myself.

If I were an A-list jet setting celebrity crossing the world on a daily basis I too would probably spend all of my bucks on a private chef cook, a huge team of gym instructors and about twelve personal assistants to handle the stress of replying emails, all of this in order to save my…

Striped PJ’s in Marrakech

Hello there! I’m back from the city of one thousand and one nights, very much alive and kicking. Unfortunately just a liiiiittle less relaxed than I had hoped for (so much damn screaming, it’s incredible) but at least the delicious food, the cozy riads and the magnificent afternoon light were top notch. Although I don’t have a…

This is how I want to look like this spring. After reading a lot about the 5 Piece French Wardrobe system and Into Mind (an excellent blog about minimalism) I was left with ambiguous feelings. On one hand these systems seemed way too radical for a spontaneous shopper like me, but on the other hand I felt like I…
