Glitter Ball Bracelet from Nude Jewellery

You know how much I love bespoke unique pieces made with a sense of creativeness, love and passion. Nude Jewellery offers exactly this.

Fundraising for Asthma UK with Silk Bedding Direct

Fundraising for Asthma UK with Silk Bedding Direct

Did you know that every 10 seconds someone has a potentially life threatening asthma attack? There  are  over  5  million  people with  asthma  in  the  UK. Someone is admitted to hospital every seven minutes because of asthma.

As a blogger I think it as my personal responsibility to bring awareness to problems like this and talk about the solutions. You probably remember the lovely silk duvet which I reviewed for you last month and now I feel even more inspired by the company Silk Bedding Direct and what they do.

Monday Outfit Post

It’s been a while since I wanted to style up a rock chic outfit with a hint of a vintage glam. I like dressing up a casual outfit when going out with my fiance, so I had this idea on mind: to use a set of vintage pearl necklaces from my grandmother which I wanted to show in their full glory, layered all together. I wasn’t sure what would be the perfect outfit for them until I saw a pair of jeans online…

Rosegal Wishlist

Rosegal Wishlist

RoseGal is a fashion brand started by a group of friends who all share the same passion for vintage style fashion. They create vintage inspired clothing with a modern take. They even say: “We see the vintage style as being a uniquely timeless fashion statement, effortlessly embodying and capturing the essence of classic fashion. This contrasts with the transforming, evolving nature of modern styles that capture the essence of urban energy and edgy lifescapes.

That is exactly what I like about their Autumn collection: timeless chic and feminine elegance – you can browse them here. Here are a few of my favourite autumn garments…

Why slim girls need to go to the gym

Why slim girls need to go to the gym

I go to the gym and lift a bit of weights. Not much, but enough to shape up some muscles around my bones. I’ve had this conversation why I do it quite a few times now and I thought it would be good to put it in a post.

No matter of your figure type, it’s always good to exercise and keep fit – just from a healthy point of view. Even if you’re not after major changes, you need to move those muscle fibers occasionally.

Skin Luminizer by Max Factor

Skin Luminizer by Max Factor

Monday #FOTD Post

This time it’s going to be a #faceoftheday post rather than #outfitoftheday, simply because I discovered a product worth sharing.

I avoid using foundation on a daily basis, because I firmly believe that it’s important for the skin to breath freely. I found that no matter of the quality it is and the price I’ve paid for a foundation, no matter how deep I’ve cleaned my face afterward, if I use it for a few days in a row, I get spots. Therefore, I only put foundation once or twice a week and I always try to find a good one.

This spring I got myself a 3-in-1 Facefinity foundation with SPF 20 by Max Factor and I loved it so much – it covers skin imperfections really well. When I saw it was half finished by the end of the summer, I rushed to Boots to get a new one. This time I was tempted to try the new Skin Luminizer foundation.

#NoFilter Geneva

#NoFilter Geneva

This post is a part of the #NoFilter Switzerland challenge held by London City Airport. The aim of the #NoFilter project is to get back to the roots of photography, celebrating the fact that photos don’t need to be Instagrammed or filtered in order to show how beautiful a city is.

Last winter my fiance had a work project in Geneva, Switzherland. At the time we didn’t have our camera yet, so we only took a few photos of the beautiful city with a phone using #nofilter. I was happy that I was asked to take part of this challenge and would finally have the opportunity to share a few photos from Geneva.

The photos are certainly not claiming to be any professional, but show this beautiful city nethertheless. The photos I chose capture the everyday life of a working city. I know many see it as a touristic place, but together with it’s classic European architecture and beautiful sights, it is a working busy city with its cozy coffee shops, sheltered bus stops and ornamented buildings.
