2012 in a Nutshell Part 2




My trip to Venice was definitely a highlight of 2012. Getting away with the boyfriend for a few days is always amazing. I also love the photos we shot during the summer, the light was just so much better than it is in the cold season. I do prefer layering though, I think.
Are you celebrating the new year tonight? Whatever your plans are - hope you're having loads of fun!

Caviar




I finally got my hands on the Ciaté Caviar Manicure nailpolish. Although I couldn't get the black version I'm really happy I could finally test this one. As a nailpolish addict it's always fun to discover new stuff. I really like the result and it was actually a lot easier to do than I thought it would be. How do you like it?

2012 in a Nutshell Part 1



Here are a few fun snapshots and outfits from the first half of 2012. This year has not been too eventful for me, but I've been able to figure out a couple of important things. First of all, I started a new job at the beginning of the year - which I love. I also went to Disneyland and Berlin, lovely little trips. Blog-wise, I've finally started taking "proper" outfit photos with an SLR. I can definitely say that I never shopped more than I did in 2012 (so it's been a good year for my wardrobe I guess) and it's been the shortest year I've experienced so far. Part 2 coming soon!

The Coat





I was wearing a Zara coat over a top from H&M Man, jeans and a belt from H&M and boots from Akira.

I'm in love with that coat from Zara! I got it from my mum for Christmas and it's already a favourite in my wardrobe. How do you guys like it?
PS. I do realize that I look like a child in these photos. When am I ever going to look my age? Le sigh...

On Christmas Day



I was wearing a dress from Mango.


This is what I was wearing on Christmas Day. Definitely my favourite LBD! It might have fit a tad bit better pre goose, dumplings and dessert, but I just had to show it to you!

Noir

Chanel Coco Noir

At the risk of sounding totally materialistic - this scent is just what I needed in my life! I love Coco Noir and now thanks to Santa (well, the boyfriend) I can finally spritz it on every day. What did you guys get for Christmas?

Merry Christmas




Here in Germany Santa comes on Christmas Eve, so I'm wishing you guys Happy Holidays today already. I hope you're all having an amazing time with your loved ones, even if you don't celebrate Christmas. And ladies, please don't count any calories - this is Christmas, what would it be without a proper feast?!

MERRY CHRISTMAS!

Blogger Inspo | WishWishWish






all photos via wishwishwish

The 'Blogger Inspo' section is now officially filled with all my favourite bloggers out there and I'm very hapy to close it off with one of my dearest reads, a blog I've been following for years now. Not only is Carrie one of those British gals whose blogs are just ridiculously pretty, but she's also amazingly photogenic and beautiful. Plus, with her name I guess she was more or less born to work in fashion! Her blog is one of those that I actually try not to read when I'm on the go (or bored in uni, oops), but rather save for quiet minutes at home with a cup of tea. Carrie is no doubt a blogger I'd be delighted to meet in real life. She just seems to always have that lovely glow about her!

Americana




I was wearing my boyfriend's shirt and knee-high socks from Jennyfer.


When my Mum brought home these socks (yes, the fashionable Mum again!) I immediately fell in love with them. The trouble is, they're not exactly easy to style with this weather. So I decided to cozy up with a tea and my boyfriend's white shirt to show them off! It wasn't easy to shoot these pictures since it's been ages since I last worked with self-timer. I hope you like them anyways!

All that glitters




You go out shopping for some Christmas gifts and end up with a bunch of stuff for yourself - sound familiar? My Mum and I went shopping and bumped into this ah-mazing sparkly pencil skirt at Urban Outfitters. We both loved it but wondered if we were the kind of women who could pull it off. So we just decided to buy it and then share it - reduces the risk of not getting a good "cost per wear" outcome. I'm lucky the fashionista gene runs in the family!

December through Instagram Part 1



December is full of events, so I'm splitting the Insta-diary into two posts. The past weeks included Christmas preparations, dinners and mine and my boyfriend's five year anniversary. When it's cold and dark outside, I like to stay in with a couple of candles lit (I just some amazing ones from Ikea - they smell like cinnamon buns!), watching movies and tv shows (I highly recommend the amazing drama 'Scandal'). I hope you guys are having a great time and don't forget to follow me on Instagram.

Rediscovered




I was wearing a coat and faux leather jacket from H&M with jeans from Bershka, a sweater from H&M Man over a top from Monki, combined with a bag from Zara and boots from Akira.


After remembering having bought those jeans over two years ago, I couldn't sit still and had to go on a quest through our (now messier than ever) storage room. Albeit the washing of the jeans being a tad too bright, I still love them for the leather details on the knees!

Black and White




I was wearing a coat and jeans from Zara with a faux fur collar from H&M over a jumper from H&M Man, a Primark beanie and Deichmann boots.


A slightly different kind of outfit post! Sometimes black and white is the simplest yet most effective alternative. Hope you guys are having a fun Sunday! Christmas is coming closer and there are a bunch of things to finish off before the holidays are here. Luckily, I already have all my presents. Santa is ready!

Let it Snow






I was wearing a ruffled skirt from H&M with a jumper from Forever21, over-the-knee boots from Mexx and a scarf from Zara.


It's gotten pretty cold out there and the world is covered and white (and dangerous slippery ice!). Surprisingly, I'm managing quite well on the task of dressing weather-appropriate. I'm very grateful for these super warm and slippery-proof suede boots that have helped me survived many winters - one of my mum's best mispurchases!

Blogger Inspo | Intrigue me now



First of all, I know I've been MIA from the blog yet again. Christmas parties and anniversary celebrations have forced me to keep my hands off my camera and laptop. Whilst I can't bring any new looks of my own to the table today, I'm lucky it's Blogger Inspo time!

Today I'd like to introduce to you Inga from Intrigue me now whose blog is in fact simply intriguing. I've been following it for years now and it certainly is one of the dearest treasures in my Bloglovin list. Besides having an amazing sense of style and the cutest son ever, Inga is what I would call the definition of gorgeous. Seriously, isn't she drop-dead-gorgeous?

Outtakes





Here are some outtakes from our day in the forest. We came across some curious ducks (that turned out to be very shy) and it was rather cold - so after we were done shooting I quickly snuggled up in my winter jacket and scarf again. I hope you like these photos!

Shiny Ensemble



I'm usually not that much into classic jewellery. And lately, with all the statement necklaces and earrings around, I had almost forgotten about the precious little pieces that wait around in my jewellery box. Recently, I've been wearing that set you see above on a daily basis. There's something about a hand full of classic pieces that will always beat some funky armswag or chunky (fake) diamonds. Goes with everything and works every day (and night). My little set is from Fossil and I received it from my Mum at Christmas last year. Great gift if you ask me!

In the forest





I was wearing:
Pants Monki
Top H&M Trend
Shoes, Necklace H&M

Here's part two of our little photoshoot in the forest! Let me tell you that these shoes weren't made for a walk in the woods... But I think they match the rest of the outfit quite well.
Again, I hope you liked this post and I'll probably post some 'outtakes' from the shoot soon, since I can't let those 10,000 photos go to waste.

Rustic







I was wearing:
Cape Bershka
Jeans, Top, Gloves H&M

These photos are a part of the little 'project' we had planned for the blog. I've been wanting to take the car out to the woods, have it double as a changing room and take lots of photos for a while. So I was happy to hear the boy was on board! For this rather rustic look we were lucky to find this cute wooden bridge.
I hope you enjoy this post and stay tuned - part two is coming tomorrow!
