FOR THE HOME: sweet dreams

When we decided to move into our new apartment 2 years ago, we also replaced most of our “student living” furniture (aka IKEA) and made a few investments, including our current bed. Admittedly, it did take a bit of persuasion on Mike’s part, because I simply didn’t get why anyone would spend the price of a Chanel jumbo flap (umm, dream bag …) on a bed and good matresses. In the end, though, I came to understand that resting our body is essential to everything else we do. So the bed it was! Fast forward 2 years and I couldn’t ever imagine not having our dreamy bed … while I used to love hotel beds, I now can’t wait to be back home to sleep in our little slice of heaven! For the finishing touch to our oasis we’re currently sleeping on the most luxurious Egyptian cotton bed linen ever by Evencki. A while ago I was gifted a set of their satin bedding in beautiful aqua blue and it is literally amazing. Even the box it came in was super nice and there was a lavender pillow inside! Evencki was founded in 2011 with a simple goal: to make bed linen beautiful again. You can even have custom measurements made! It is their passion to create elegant sheets that bring the bedroom to life. With our light blue airy blankets and pillows it most definitely feels like a bed of clouds!

BEAUTY TALK: art stick

Even though I am not much of a lipstick-kinda-girl, there are some days on which I simply crave a bolder lip in pink or red. It’s been a while since I last wore lipstick (mainly because Mike isn’t a huge fan), but when the new art stick by bobbi brown arrived on Monday, I couldn’t wait to try it out. I’ve already worn it for 2 days in a row and absolutely love it! With it being a pencil, rather than a lipstick, you can fill the lips super exact, plus you can easily control how intense you want the color to be. It’s a little like a lip liner and lipstick, mixed into one! Especially now with spring in full force it is the perfect accessory to my outfits (seen HERE). The color I am wearing is “electric pink”, which is a beautiful intense pink with a matte finish.

OUTFIT: uniform

My personal uniform goes a little something like this: black skinny jeans, a silky top, a pretty blazer and a touch of animal print. Depending on the day’s agenda I’ll either grab loafers, sneakers or a pair of heels. The pieces from today’s outfit were love at first sight and so “me”! By now, I already own 2 pairs of those coated skinny jeans by Hallhuber – they are the best fit I’ve ever had, so I decided one extra pair wouldn’t hurt. Better be safe than sorry! Also, the Hoss Intropia blazer is absolute perfection with the neutral color scheme and those amazing metal details sewn to it. Manuela shot these photos at the stunning Kaiser-Suite in the Schlosshotel Velden and I wish someone would take me back right now! Happy Monday everyone!
