OUTFIT: packing

While I am currently somewhere mid-air between Vienna and London, en route to Dallas, I wanted to leave you guys with yesterday’s outfit. The day was filled with some last-minute errands and to-dos, which means that comfort was at the top of my list of priorities. Meaning: layers and leo espadrilles. See you guys in Dallas!

CRAVINGS: pre-loved

A week ago, Kathi and I held a fleamarket at our office. Aside from the fact that we had so much fun meeting a lot of you, we also had some really interesting conversations about pre-loved items and how someone’s “trash” can be another person’s “treasures”. It got me thinking. What are my treasures? Why do some items only make it out of the back of my closet a few times, while others are in constant use? And how cool is it, that things I don’t love as much anymore, are items that make others come to our fleamarket and put a smile on their face? That’s probably the same thought the founders of Vestiaire Collective had. Only that they stepped up their game a notch and took the amazing idea of re-selling pre-loved designer items to the next level, meaning: online! Instead of you handing over your pieces to a second-hand store (which usually charges 50% of commission), or putting together a fleamarket yourself (which involves quite a bit of work and lots of schlepping – trust me), they offer a platform where you can shop and sell authentic designer items, as they live by th“no to fakes” motto and have a detailed authenticity control for every single piece before it is sent to the buyer. The perfect place for fashion lovers to part with their unloved (but no less amazing) designer items – or shop for new love!

OUTFIT: feels like Summer

Just last week, I remember going on my evening run and freezing my butt off. I was wearing a long-sleeve thermo top and a wind stopper jacket in sight. Today, however, it feels like Summer. 26°C and I left the house without a jacket. So good!! Unfortunately, it seems the magic will be gone by tomorrow, but hey, at least we got a little preview of those warm Summer days. Palazzo pants and an airy top were all it took to get ready today in the morning!

5 ways to a healthier lifestyle

Over the years, I feel like I have developed a fairly healthy lifestyle for myself, without obsessing over things too much. I enjoy the meals I eat, I have grown to love exercise and I am content with the way I look (most of the time). Personally, I am not a fan of certain diets, but instead prefer to make subtle long-term changes for the better. For me, radical changes are only short-term solutions, and in the end, I think it is more about being and living healthy. I do, however, think that a juice cleanse is an amazing thing. I did a 5-day cleanse back in December, and have noticed significant changes in my metabolism and well-being since then. To the point where I am actually already looking forward to the next cleanse in the Summer. But that’s off topic. Today, I want to share 5 ways to a healthier lifestyle, that will be easy to adapt and maintain over time.
