    Have you ever heard the saying “it is a marmite piece”? No? Well, let me explain, because it’s one of my favorites ways to describe ugly clothes that are kind of cool too. The saying refers to Marmite, a food paste that supposedly has a very distinctive taste. I’ve never tried it, but if their own marketing says “hate it or love it”, than I understand where the saying “a marmite piece” has come from haha! I heard some British YouTubers use the saying in their shopping hauls (my guilty pleasure!) and I have taken over. I like to call…

    6-day Tenerife Road Trip (Part II)

    READ PART 1 HERE On popular request I have moved our Tenerife Road Trip Part 2 to the front row of my editorial calendar. To be honest, I was dreading the amount of photos that needed to be edited for this, haha. But what better to do on a rainy winters day than look at photos from a sunny vacation huh? Oh wait, it wasn’t that sunny… . The second part of our road trip was rather cloudy and even rainy! You’ll see in the photos that the weather changed quite a lot and really fast. Some of the photos…

    My No-Fail Outfit Recipe

    A blazer outfit for Fall? Groundbreaking! Okay, so yes, I know that it is technically Winter now, but I haven’t found time to work on my Fall outfit posts so here we are. Temperatures have been very mild this year (it’s still 15°C), so quite honestly I can still get away with wearing ballet flats and a blazer as a coat when I have to run a quick errand. And I don’t mind, because I love love love this type of outfit. It is my no-fail outfit recipe: a flowy camisole a blazer dressy trousers/skinny jeans ballet flats structured bag…

    Aachen Christmas Market

    How’s that for the world’s least inspiring blog post title? Pretty great, I’d say. Truth be told, I was nowhere near a German Christmas Market this year. Helsinki? Yes. Tallinn? Also yes. But Germany? No. Don’t be fooled by the ‘2019’ on the gluhwein cups. It really was 2018. These photos are from last year when we spend the whole two and a half hours in Aachen before fleeing the scene because it was just too crowded to be enjoyable. I didn’t feel like I had enough ‘content’ to write a blog post about it back then, but I’m a…

    My Favorite Coat for Fall

    Mi scusi… mi scusi… It looks like I’ve ghosted you again the past two weeks! I spent a week in Spain with my friend K and then things happened on the home and work front that kept me away from the internet for the last couple of days. My (only 6 months old and very expensive) phone also died, which should explain my absence from social media all together. It’s been a week, friends, it’s been a week. Spain was lovely though and scoring some pretty bits for my wardrobe during Black Friday today cheered me up as well. And…

    Sweata Weatha

    Sweata Weatha. If you have ever been on the internet in November, I think you will have seen the Bronx Beat Clip from Saturday Night Live about the arrival of “sweata weatha”. Every year it comes around again and every year it cracks me up. It is SO accurate. I too get excited about sweater weather each November. All the fluff! the coziness! The newness! The warmth! But just like every other basic girl out there I will be just as excited about it being over again come April. That being said, I have this favorite cream knit sweater that…
