I’ll have a Latte, please!

Good morning everyone! Once again, the week has passed so, so incredibly fast! I’ve barely had a chance to relax, nor write anything on here. After last nights business dinner I sat down and got inspired by a few items on Polyvore before I went to bed. I love creating and finding inspiration for new outfit ideas – and exactly knowing where everything comes from.

Last night I decided for a winter-y outfit. Cosy, yet chic. I’m in love with the idea of owning an outfit like the below, even though, for once, it’s not all black! So I might really look into this, haha. When I plan outfits, I usually have a location in mind. This time, I actually thought of a Parisian Café, sitting outside wrapped in a fur, drinking a Latte. Random? Maybe so!

Now off to continuing work. I’ve got a 5h event in front of me today and another business dinner afterwards. Lucky me: I barely have to cook this week!

a seasons change

It’s almost already officially autumn again! It’s incredible how fast time passes, or am I just getting old by now haha? Tomorrow is the official calendar start for autumn (at least in Switzerland). By now you can really tell as well, as almost all leafs have either turned orange and brown or already fallen off. And oh my, it’s getting really cold now too! I’ve taken out my winter coat already and will get the rest out tomorrow.

As much as I love those winter wonderlands, I’m already looking forward to having summer back. Winter is amazing up in the alps, which are already getting ready for opening all the ski slopes now. But here in the city everything is just turning grey and dark. It rains a lot and the color seem to be washed out with it. Time for wearing my red lips again more often!

I love adding some color to my lips and nails when everything else seems to drown in grey. What’s you’re preferred makeup look for these cold days?

Hope you’re all enjoying you’re weekend!

An Addiction to Shoes

Diamonds are surely not a girls best friend, and shoes are not everything in life. But they surely can make me jump up and down from joy – oh, how I love buying new shoes. Oophs, I did it again (ha! Does that remind you of any song? Damnit, now it’s stuck in my head haha!). Honestly, I sometimes think I have this slight addiction to shoes. If feels like every cent that I save up someday suddenly is gone and a new pair of shoes or a new clothing item has replaced it, haha.

It’s also (once again, I know) no surprise that I love, but seriously absolutely, love black. I can’t even describe the emotions bonded to this color. It just fits: everyday, to every occasion, in every season, at any time of the day. So there is also no surprise that I chose black shoes! I actually ordered these lovely new pairs just a few days ago and was super surprised (and jumping of joy), when they already arrived yesterday at the office! Do any of you know that feeling when you just don’t expect a packet? I thought DHL was at the door, just handing me some documents. And then: BAM. It was my Nelly packet that arrived.

I love investing in clothes, especially in shoes, leather goods, handbags and coats. But then I saw these, saw that they were (super!) cheap compared to what I normally see that I actually fall in love with and was just mind-blown. And I did hesitate for a bit, I do admit it. But in the end I decided to go for it, just try it. In the end, if I don’t like them anymore next season or if they break or whatnot, I atleast won’t regret spending a fortune on them. Oh, and another major positive point: I got three pairs for the money I would normally spend easily on one pair. It’s a win-win-only situation!

What do you think? Invest or just go for the cheaper one from time to time? By the way: I am always on the outlook for new stores or websites to get some inspiration. Be it shoes, clothes in general or whatnot. Please let me know if you see something great!

Now I quickly need to pack together my bag and off I go to the office. It’s majorly pouring today (ugh!), but atleast that is a good excuse to wear my new shoes (#1)!

Breakfasts in Bed

Happy lazy-sunday everyone! It’s really no secret: I love my lazy sundays. And even more, I love my breakfasts in bed. So after sleeping in quite long again today, I decided to make a lovely breakfast and jump right back into bed. The week has passed enormoulsy fast, again! My weekend has been pretty calm though, as the week has been really long and my calendar for the week to follow is packed with appointments. I love it, don’t get me wong, but I also really needed to just lay-back this weekend. So I did, and loved it. I went shopping yesterday, got caught up in buying new make-up and my lovely new HOME-tray in white. It’s perfect for those lazy sunday morning breakfast in bed!

I’ll get ready soon and then head out to go for a nice sunday walk: the weather is breath-taking. We have a super blue sky here in Zurich and actually stil 23°C today. I wouldn’t be surprised if that is the last amazing weekend though, before slowly but surely the autumn and winter days will hit us. So it’s only natural to go outside and enjoy the weather whilst we still have it. I’ll also need to do some sunday cleaning today, as well as watch a 3h long DVD for my divers license. Fun, fun! What are you’re plans?

denitia and sene. – casanova

Happy Wednesday everyone! Seems the week is surely passing super fast again – or at least it sure is on my side. I just found this song last night and have been listening to their music on and off in the office when background music was appropriate. So I thought I’d quickly pass by and share it with you. Have you heard of them before? Maybe I’m just super behind on this, again! But I sure love finding new music and the video itself is great! It’s far from those modern music videos but simultaneously so charming with that old-school flair to it

Now that lunch is almost over again, I wish you a great continuing day!
