shopping // dream bags

October 19, 2014
Wherever we girls go, whatever we do – there is almost no occasion to which we do not carry any kind of bag with us. And although – admittedly – there usually is a lot of unnecessary stuff inside, it still is the place where our most precious things are put when accompanying us to wherever we are headed: purse, cell phone, key and so on… No wonder then that we will probably never feel like owning enough bags, right? At least I am on a never ending mission of finding the perfect bag – because even if the one you wanted is finally yours a million others will pop up on your wish list. Like I said, never ending Now, these six dream bags are currently on my list:

glamour shopping week 2014 // wishlist

October 4, 2014
It is the season again! Glamour Shopping Week is starting today giving all of us a perfect excuse to finally press the ‘purchase’ button on several websites that we have a filled shopping cart on while feeling (more or less) guilt-free. So many great discounts and goodies come up with this special week and my shopper heart always enjoys the moment after the inserted code reduces the price and the mouse hits buy now❤
These products are the ones that have been stuck in my cart for the longest time now:
glamour shopping wek 2014 wish list

  • LeSpecs “Hey Macarena” which I have been wanting to buy all summer but it was sold out literally everywhere (20% discount on mrspex.de)
  • I honestly cannot resist Tory Burch’s Shopper York Buckle with a 20% discount – you get me right? (monnierfreres.de)
  • Since I am selling my grey Ugg Australia Classic Short boots from last year I am looking for a new pair for the upcoming season and with the given price a discount comes in very handy right now! (görtz.de up to 20€)

cravings // hello autumn!

September 10, 2014

Although, technically, we are still a few weeks away from the official beginning of autumn, I emotionally have said goodbye to summer already and am now looking forward to woolen jumpers, warm scarves and evenings on the sofa accompanied by lots of candles and a hot cup of tea. As hard as it is to face the dark time of the year (knowing we will not see the warming sun for quite a while), I always enjoy this time of year – all those new styles in the shopping windows bring a lot of inspiration for the upcoming season. Not the very best thing for my wallet though, I have seen quite a lot of things I absolutely neeeed this autumn…

autumn cravings

1. I have never really owned a between-seasons jacket which is why in autumn and spring I tend to be dressed either too warm or too cold – that could have an end with this blue ultra-light quilted jacket

 
2. & 5. One thing I cannot get enough of during autumn are jumpers in earth colors – olive and grey are my favorites for cozy yet stylish combos in autumn.
 
3. As much as I love simple plain shirts, sometimes it has to be a printed one like this grey military style shirt.
 
4. Autumn calls for coats, don’t you think? This one would be the perfect addition to my closet as I don’t have any jacket for special occasions – though I am in love with my parka , sometimes it just has to be a little more chic… 
6. As I said, scarves are essential for cold autumn days and this one looks beyond cozy!
 
7. Okay, so I have literally searched for a pair of leo loafers for ages now! Admittedly, they are not made out of leather, BUT these have the perfect shape and print – plus, this way they are more than affordable.

last minute summer sale picks

July 27, 2014
Only four days to go until we finally depart to Italy and in my mind I am slowly beginning to create packing lists, tick several to do’s and suddenly realized with a shock that I totally need a new bikini… While clicking myself through numerous online shops searching for one, I got hit (hard) by the ongoing summer sale – and of course found everything, but a simple bikini for my vacation…
Summer Sale Picks
1. The Rebecca Minkoff Mini Mac has been on my cravings list for a while now and this sweet price reduction could possibly lead to finally buying it for real…
2. Espandrilles have been THE summer crush this year and this pair’s even more beautiful than my simple bue ones.
3. Black is not a typical summer color, but simple basics like this top are perfect for an elegant dinner look on warm summer evenings!
4. Speaking of shoes, I have had about five pairs of simple white Converse shoes during the last three years. i think it is about time to try a new color perspective!
5. Jeans shorts. Summer. Vacation. Do I need to say more?
6. Okay, you probably know about my Nike Free love story now. If not: Nike Frees and I, we are simply made for each other and this pair would make me endlessly happy 🙂

shopping // bikini season ♥

July 14, 2014
Summer is here which means it is about time to enjoy a swim in the sea and some sunbathing! That is if you have a summer vacation planned – I am literally counting the days until I finally depart, as I am more than ready for some relaxation and travels. And there is one thing that may not be absent when on a perfect summer trip: bikinis! I love to mix and match different tops, bottoms and colors and am still in search of some lovely ones for my vacation this year. So I did some research and this is what I found:
bikini season

I have a major crush both on the pink one up right and on the mint colored bandeau bikini – which one(s) do you prefer? 🙂
