Winter pastels & mixing textures

Primark Dress // H&M Cardigan // Boo shoes // watch: Christmas gift When we went to the pressdays showcasing the SS’13 collections in December, I fell in love with this beautiful, textured dress from Vila. The open back, the silver lining, the tweed-y texture, the soft colours, … everything about it was just perfect! But, coming with a pricetage of €50 and me not having a payed job at that moment (dang you, internships!)made it clear that this dress was not coming home with me any time soon. I bet you can imagine my excitement when I found this …

The ombre of love: red & pink

The ombre of love: red & pink

Banana Republic shirt // Massimo Dutti skit // Zara cardigan // Boo shoes // Oasis earrings Behold, two of my favorite London scores: glitzy gold earrings and the sweetest dot shirt. Walking into Banana Republic to me was like walking into Mr. Magoriums Wonder Imporium, Or Hamley’s if you like. I ooooh’d and aaaah’d while gracefully sliding through every part of the store. Their selection of black and white outfits made my heart skip a beat… and my wallet open. I kind of fear the tenth of next month. It’s known as credit card billing …

The London Diaries: A walk by the Thames & Harrods

The London Diaries: A walk by the Thames & Harrods

    After visiting Covent Garden we made D-tour to greet Londons main tourist attractions The London Eye and Westminster Abbey. It was pretty cold and windy that afternoon, so I consider this long walk not our best idea of that day. It felt a as bit of a reward to spot a cute, almost hidden bakery from behind my wild windswept locks. Seriously, that’s the reason there’s no pictures of me really. Terrible hair. From Westminster we took the tube down to Sloan Square to discover the shops on Kings Road. If you have a …

Can redheads wear red? Fo sho they can!

Springfield dress // Zara cardigan // vintage clutch // F21 red heart ring // Silver heart ring: gifted // Swatch watch // Boo shoes  Hello there! Remember this face? It feels like forever and a day ago that I sat down, relaxed and typed a sentence or two here on The Ginger Diaries. Maybe you remember that I told you the past week was going to be an important one for me. Monday was the first day of my new internship (awesome!), Tuesday I had my drivers test (fail!), Wednesday I got my grades back (awesome!) and on Thursday I…

Advertorial: College Book Rentals & Operation Smile

Advertorial: College Book Rentals & Operation Smile

Meet my college books. Books, meet these lovely people! All of their content is safely stocked on the hard disc that is my brain. The thing about college books is that they are really expensive. And it’s hard to sell them off to students from the next years, as the teachers always find a way to tweak them a little for the next school year. A lot of these books have never even been used. See those four binders? Only two turned out to be relevant, meaning I wasted more than a hundred dollars on them. …

The London Diaries: Soho & Covent Garden

The London Diaries: Soho & Covent Garden

      I’m typing this post with one hand while the other is pressing a cold water compress to my badly twisted right ankle ankle, my two knee braces are supporting my swollen knees and I have a big bruise on my left shoulder. Did I fall of my bike, you ask? No, I spend three days in the wonderful city in London. Remember that awesome but stupid thing I did in early December? K and I spontaneously booked a trip to London. Neither Paris or New York could measure up to my feelings …
