The Silk Blouse You All Need In Your Wardrobes

The Silk Blouse You All Need In Your Wardrobes

How are you guys doing? I’m in a particularly jolly mood today. This afternoon we had a snowball fight at work and warmed up with a cup of coffee afterwards. I’m currently sat down in my new Primark PJs watching snowmageddon grown in force outside. Primark Pjs are the best. So it watching the snow… from behind a window and next to the central heating. Also, K is cooking dinner downstairs so I don’t have to contribute to the house hold tonight. …

The Coziest Cardigan of Them All

The Coziest Cardigan of Them All

There are still a few items in my wardrobe that I bought last year and never got to write blog posts about. Winter is my least favorite season and not being able to shoot much for the blog is one of the reasons why. It’s dark when I leave for work in the morning and it’s dark when I return home. It always seems to rain on the weekends too, making it difficult to go out and shoot my favorite looks from the …

Louis Widmer 3-in-1 Cleansing Lotion Review

Louis Widmer 3-in-1 Cleansing Lotion Review

The world of beauty products is completely new territory for me, I’m not gonna lie! I’ve only recently started testing the some of the beauty products that I receive for my blog. In the past I’d much rather rather pass them on to my girlfriends, often in exchange for outfit photos or quick instagram shots. It was a win-win situation! With my beauty stash growing significantly over the last few months I thought I might as well give a few of the …

Travelling In Style

Travelling In Style

Things are finally winding down in this household. I’m back to work without the foresight of vacation and I haven’t started prepping for the Holidays just yet. With a laid-back week ahead of me I found some time to edit a few of the outfits we’ve shot this Fall and I want to kick the series off with this travel look! If there’s one rule in travel dressing it surely must be “comfort above all”! My travel outfits usually involve my …

The €25 blazer I’m Obsessed With

The €25 blazer I’m Obsessed With

Me and my blazers, it’s a never-ending love story. I have about ten. I think. Maybe more. And I wear them with love. This season I really wanted to join in on the Prince of Wales trend, but didn’t want to drop the cash for a large winter coat in the check print. I like the classic style, but I wasn’t sure if the trend was just another Instagram-one-day-wonder and would feel very “October 2017” soon. Instead I searched and found a jacket …

Sothys Skincare Review

Sothys Skincare Review

A beauty post on The Ginger Diaries. What a wonder that you get to live to see this great day! I have another wonder I’d like to talk about: Sothys skincare. Sothywho? Sothys truly is a hidden gem among the skin care brands of this world. Let me prove my point. Everyone, Raise your hand if you’ve ever heard about Babor Skincare. Now raise your hand if you’ve ever heard about Sothys before. I imagine a lot less hands are raised. And …

Tips For Buying The Perfect Bag For Hand Luggage Travelling

Tips For Buying The Perfect Bag For Hand Luggage Travelling

On almost all of my city trips I travel with hand luggage only. Check-in luggage usually means extra costs, more waiting time at the airport, extra weight to carry,… . Just a whole lot of hassle that I can’t be bothered with! I’m currently using a very old Converse Bowling Bag as my carry-on bag. It’s big enough to keep an outfit or three, my camera gear and basic necessities. The back pocket of the bag is useful to store my passport and …

Men’s Shirts and Short Skirts

Men’s Shirts and Short Skirts

From a young age on I’ve loved crime series such as the overly suspenseful CSI Miami and the quintessential British show Midsomer Murders. On Netflix, I devoured the first two seasons of How To Get Away With Murder (which may or may not have had something to do with Jack Falahee) and watched pretty much all crime documentaries within a few weeks after signing up. I know, I’m weird. Since I’m still waiting for Netflix to release S3 of HTGAWM I was …

Rocking Levis 501 Mom Jeans

Rocking Levis 501 Mom Jeans

I never thought dressing like my mom in the eighties was going to feel this good. Dang it, these high-waisted straight-legged jeans are awesome. In the past year or so I really became a jeans wearer and I expanded my collection from one sad pair of blue jeans to about five. I love how much more wear I get out of my tops, blouses and sweaters now! Most of my jeans are a skinny fit and I have grown tired of wearing the same style&…

The Bernadette Cardigan

The Bernadette Cardigan

dress: Scapa | cardigan: Street One | shoes:Aldo | bag: Michael Kors Sutton I used to be obsessed with dresses. A few years ago, I had more dresses than there are days in a month and I was playing with the idea of doing a ’30 days of dresses’ kind of thing here on my blog. I never got my boyfriend so far to take outfit pictures every single day for 30 days and by now most of those dresses are gone too. However, I…
