OUTFIT: casual coffee run

Here’s a confession: I love grabbing coffee on the go or at cozy cafés - especially on the weekend or on public holidays. Mike has gotten used to the fact that I’d happily pay a few extra Euros for a latte somewhere, rather than drinking a homemade cappuccino on our sofa. After all, we have everything a coffee-loving heart desires at home! And as much as I love my coffee machine, I also adore leaving the house in my favorite comfy clothes for some fresh air and a caffein fix when the rest of the city seems to be lounging at home ♥ Obviously on those days I don’t dress up to leave the house, but prefer to keep things casual with some sweats. Trust me, coffee tastes twice as good when you’re in your favorite leisure wear!

BEAUTY TALK: Invisalign Update #1

By the title of this blogpost, you guys can probably already guess what I ended up deciding on in terms of my Invisalign treatment. In all honesty, I was more or less set on going through with it before even writing about it, but all the positive feedback from you guys only reassured me. Aside from all of the super sincere and helpful comments, I also received a ton of emails from press contacts and marketing ladies that I work with on a regular basis. And guess what, never had I noticed that any of them wear Invisalign! Judging by all the comments and feedback you guys left after my last beauty talk about Invisalign, I have decided to sort of document my journey right here on the blog. I would have loved to find more information on it from other blogger’s who had it done while I was doing my research, so I hope that these posts will be helpful to some of you.

Cocktail Attire 101

Here’s a confession: Any time I receive an invite that calls for “cocktail attire” I get slightly nervous. My style is usually fairly casual and I definitely wear pants almost 100% of the time. A skirt or dress is such a rare occasion for me, that I find it harder to style those looks. Even though I loved your reaction to this post, I feel like pants simply flatter my figure more, because I can pair them with a flowy blouse to cover my hips. None-the-less, I still love the idea of a classy cocktail dress. So it is just about finding that perfect fit, and then also knowing the right tricks to feel the most comfortable in a hip-hugging dress. I know some of you will call me crazy for wearing shapewear, but in all honesty, I don’t think shapewear is only for women who try to look slimmer. It is about feeling the most comfortable and looking your best. Because let’s be honest, who doesn’t prefer to have a flat tummy and lifted butt? Plus, the shapewear by Triumph is so pretty, you kind of want it just because of the pretty lace!

forever mine.

During the last 5 years of blogging, I have shared a lot with you guys. I’ve taken you to restaurants, shared my daily looks, beauty rituals and parts of my fitness and diet. I have written about my travels, about being sick and about my family. As you may have noticed though, Mike’s picture has never made it on the blog (unless you count this post). I receive questions about him a lot, and have even been asked what’s wrong with him, that I never show him off. Nothing! He is the best thing that has ever happened to me, and hopefully that will never change. Which is exactly the reason that I don’t post pictures with him. I adore him beyond words (eww so cheesy… but true!) and I while I love sharing so many aspects of my life with you, he is one that I’ll keep to myself.

While you guys may not see him on the blog, you do see a lot of things that represent our love on a regular basis – maybe even without knowing. Almost every single piece of jewellery I wear is from him, with a special story and meaning behind it. All, except two pieces. One is a delicate ring that I had custom made for myself on my 25th birthday, and the other piece is a gorgeous necklace which I had just made about 3 weeks ago at ANNA Inspiring Jewellery. Both he and I travel a lot, and I wanted something that was always with me. Even though all pieces by ANNA have special symbolic meanings, their custom engraved pieces top it all. Two years ago for my birthday, Mike got me a bracelet from there that has our initials and date engraved on it, and I wanted a necklace to go with it. I know a lot of you have noticed the beautiful piece on my recent outfits and Instagram photos already, but today I wanted to share a closer look at my new favorite, and most personal piece of jewellery. Forever mine.
