the birthday brunch

Even though I wanted to celebrate my birthday somewhere warm this year, of course I also wanted to celebrate with my friends. First thing we did when I was back in town, was a super lazy birthday brunch. Lots of friends, presents, some bubbly, good food and laughter made the day extra special, and I am so thankful for having all these wonderful people in my life! I think I’ll make a birthday brunch a tradition from now on.

Be mine, Mr. Valentine!

In the 8 years that Mike and I have been together, we have never celebrated Valentine’s Day. Why? Certainly not because we don’t love each other, but rather because my birthday has always been the next day – and that probably won’t change anytime soon. As soon as the clock strikes midnight, it is all about blowing out candles, toasting with bubbly and receiving presents. None-the-less, I am still an absolute sucker for everything that includes a few hearts and lots of pink. Feel free to guess what my birthday decor usually looks like! Just because Mike and I don’t celebrate the 14th, doesn’t mean I don’t treat myself to a little something pink. This year, we’ll be in Abu Dhabi (= lots of sunshine) and I can’t wait to wear my new Valentine’s ensemble from Triumph Lingerie underneath a light and airy top, which will show of just a hint of that pretty pink embroidery. Who cares what the boys think about Valentine’s Day when we can spoil ourselves with pretty lingerie, right?

VIDEO: bridal shoot

Last week, I married Kathi! Not really, but it sure felt like it. We hopped in front of Julie Brass’ lens for a bridal shoot to show off Anna Posch’s skills. Don’t worry, no wedding bells ringing just yet, but it was so much fun to play dress up with stunning dresses and even more stunning flower crowns. Since it has been forever since I last uploaded a video to my Youtube channel, I created a short little video to take you guys behind-the-scenes. Hope you like it, and be sure to head on over to PoschStyle for the final results of the shoot! Continue after the click for the video:

OUTFIT: fri-yay

I have to admit, ever since Kathi and I started working together full time, I rarely dread Mondays anymore and I don’t get overly excited about weekends. We spend our days doing what we love most (plus a bit of not so fun paper work and finances, of course …) and I don’t feel like I need a break from work as much as I used to. Still, this Friday I am super excited about the weekend ahead. Mike will finally be turning in his master thesis tomorrow morning, which means we actually get our treasured evenings together back. Since we works (more than) full-time, he has been writing his thesis after dinner at night and on the weekends. Meaning: no watching shows together or going out. To celebrate, we’re going out tomorrow, and I am pretty excited! Especially because there is an amazing (!!) pair of new shoes waiting to be taken out for a bit of dancing - stay tuned for the reveal tomorrow!
