What I Wore in Vilnius

What I Wore in Vilnius

Wise people say there is a first time for everything. I’m not much of a fan of “first times”. I like to stick with what I know, stability, comfort zones, you know. While packing for Vilnius I struggled for the first time to fit all my essentials into my hand luggage and I was lost. Like, I am a good packer. Better yet: I am the QUEEN of packing. I am even better at packing than most boys because I have little stuff and housewife skills. I own it. But this time… not so …

The Shoe Issue

The Shoe Issue

It’s 20:55 PM on Halloween night, I’m home alone and I noticed that the blog post I had scheduled for tonight has somehow disappeared into the darkness of the internet. So here I am – with my steaming cup of hot cocoa and covered in a fleece blanket – to warn you, not for horror clowns and other creatures of the night, but for the dangers of online shoe shopping. When the Over-The-Knee boots trend took off again last year I was kind of undecided about whether or not I wanted a pair myself. They are a …

Blogging On The Bright Side

Blogging On The Bright Side

I’ve been working at my new job for a solid five months now and I still haven’t found a blogging schedule that fits my new life as an adult. Add to that the house we bought and all the work that goes into planning the renovations and you get me… forgetting that I even have a blog. I don’t know what just happened, but I completely forgot to plan some much needed blog-time this weekend. Or any me-time at all. I’ve been sleeping a little less and worrying a little more …

AD | Testing the SKM “Try-Outfit” Service

When I was younger, shopping was my hobby, my therapy, my life. I was always on the High Street. If you needed me on a Saturday afternoon you could bet you’d find me in the local H&M, thinking up outfits I wasn’t able to afford with my allowance. Searching endlessly through the racks, I knew exactly what stores carried what items and I quickly learned what stores I liked and what places I didn’t have to waste my time in. Looking back, I barely recognize the teen that I was. At 24 years …

My New Fall Booties

My New Fall Booties

Fall fashion and me is one big love story. Layers, warm colors, thick knitwear, scarfs, flannel shirts, booties… . What’s not to like!? Since I was finishing my degree in uni in the first semester last year, I didn’t have the funds to treat myself to new fall footwear. I wore the two pairs of boots that I had to death and even braved the cold with my airy Nikes sometimes to spare the boots. I took them out of storage last week and boy, are those boots a mess. While we were still enjoying a …

Nineties Nightmares

Nineties Nightmares

The nineties trends just won’t go away, do they? I must say that I sometimes still suffer from nightmares about that first round of plastic chokers, buffalo sneakers and band tees that I got to live through when I was a kid. I was always a little behind when it came to fashion must-haves back then. Mostly because I was more into trading Pokémon cards than fashion at that time, although I do remember vividly how we got chokers out of those bubblegum machines every once in a while. The joy of that era! Just a …
