BEAUTY TALK: berry tones

This Fall I am loving berry tones, no question about it. Hues of deep pink, red and purple are so fitting for the season and seem to work with my complexion as well. I recently shared a few beauty favorites over on “beautystories” but also wanted to share them with you. So here we go!

OUTFIT: the brooch

Tadaaa, and here it is! The first outfit with my new Chanel brooch. Obviously I couldn’t go a day without wearing it after a I bought it, so it has been on repeat since last Friday. Now that I’ve worn it a few times, I am even happier with my purchase – such a pretty accessoire and totally adds that special touch to any outfit. For the office, I wore a super casual look today: big chunky knit, sneakers and my beloved leather jacket. Perfect on a gray November day!

NEW IN: chanello #1

Oh Chanel! It seems that it is an endless lovestory for most girls – and I am definitely no exception! While the bags that are on my wishlist will have to wait (for now), I finally splurged on something I had been craving for a long time. Over the past few months and weeks, I repeatedly spotted a Chanel brooch on Caro and Anni’s Instagram feeds. Everytime I saw it, I fell in love a little more. I had been to Chanel a few times, but they only had brooches from the supermarket collection in store. Then, this Friday I finally got lucky. And now it is mine ♥ Chanello no.1 in my closet!

CRAVINGS: Sunday at home

Yesterday I saw a quote on Instagram that read “stop the glorification of busy” and for some reason it really stuck with me. It seems that now adays the busier you seem, the cooler and more important you are. Admittedly, we live in a very fast-paced society and you do need to stay busy to be able to keep up – I’ve found that to be more true than ever being self-employed. If you don’t get s*** done, someone else will jump at the opportunity. But like most things in life, it is all about the right balance. Recently, I’ve made it a point to keep work in a Monday through Friday time frame and really try to “turn off” on the weekends and keep myself from answering emails past 8pm. Today I slept in until 11, yesterday it was 11:30. And I love it. Just like today will be all about painting my nails, good food, friends and lounging on the couch all day. Because guess what? It is ok to NOT be busy some times. Happy Sunday!
