OUTFIT: wearing Ioana Ciolacu

During Berlin Fashion Week this year, one of the shows I couldn’t wait to see was the Designer for Tomorrow Award. I think a newcomer award is always a great opportunity to discover new talents, and I was especially curious to see what Ioana Ciolacu (the 2013 winner) had in store, since her mentor during the post-award process was Stella McCartney. During the show I instantly loved the light colors, lots of white, pale pink and big prints. Personally, I always appreciate when fashion on the runways is actually wearable, and with Ioana I immediately felt like most of her pieces would totally work for me. For today’s outfit, I styled my favorite top from her capsule collection via FASHION ID in a typical “Vicky Look” – pointy shoes, a bit of leopard, white, black & gray.

VIDEO: a few new beauty favorites

These past few weeks I have been spoiled with quite a few amazing items in the beauty department. As you guys know, I have a pretty solid routine and only a few products I absolutely love. However, amongst the new stuff, there definitely are a few contestants which are on their best way to becoming total favorites. I also re-discovered some products that I hadn’t used for a while, such as my Benefit “Coralista” blush and wanted to share my September beauty favorites with you. To watch the video with my personal review and opinion about the products, click on the image below. (Sorry, only in German).

CRAVINGS: Oktoberfest-ready

As you guys know, I’ll be heading to the Oktoberfest exactly 10 days from today (yay!!) and I can’t wait to see what the fuzz is all about. Plus, I’ll be spending the day with 10 fellow blogger ladies from Germany, which makes it even better! I already showed you my beautiful Hallhuber Dirndl HERE (which btw is also available in the Zalando Dirndl-Shop) and shared a little hair tutorial HERE – so now it’s time to accessorize. Even though I decided on a delicate necklace for my look, I also feel that the Oktoberfest is a perfect opportunity to wear something big and glitzy. For today’s cravings, I decided to put together my actual choices, as well as a second option I’d love to wear! Which one would you choose? Simply click on the products below to shop the look:

HEALTHY LIVING: my 50-minute workout

It’s been a while since I last shared some of my workouts with you, so I wanted to give you a little update. Recently I’ve been running about 5-7km twice per week and have tried to hit the gym 1-2 times per week. Today was super rainy, so I decided to do a bit of interval training on the treadmill and work on my arms and abs. Personally, I feel that I can see the quickest results by combining high intensity interval training with weight training and some low intensity cardio training throughout the week. Here is what today’s 50-minute workout looked like:
