Don’t ask me how I managed to celebrate my birthday without a camera on hand, but for some reason I totally forgot to properly capture my 25th. Luckily there is a thing called Instagram, so at least I get to share a few snapshots from the amazing celebration.
As you guys know, I am a firm believer in cleaning out your closet at least once per year (preferably every 6 months). Even though I have started shopping much more consciously over the past year or so, I still come across items in my closet that I hardly ever wear. Just a few weeks ago, a friend told me about Glamloop.com, which is basically a market place to sell and shop for designer and high quality items. They’ve seriously got everything – Chanel, YSL, Miu Miu, Marc Jacobs, …
Anyway, I was instantly drawn to the idea of having a platform to sell a few pieces that were simply too nice to take to a regular flea market. Especially because everything is checked for authenticity before it goes live – so no fakes or fraud! Glamloop offers two different options for selling, you can either choose SELF service or RUNDUM/ concierge service in bigger cities. The SELF Service is where you decided which items need to go and for how much you want to sell them. For the RUNDUM/ concierge service, a fashion consultant will actually come to your home to pick up the items and help you choose and price them. This is perfect for getting the most money out of the treasures your closet holds. And the best part: You don’t have to worry about the annoying uploading and taking pictures. All you have to do is put all the items you want to sell in a box, send them to Glamloop in Munich and wait for them to go online.
It’s been a while since the last Sunday Cravings, but with my birthday coming up next weekend there are plenty of things I am currently craving! Over on The Daily Dose I already shared my wishlist, and today I wanted to share a little outfit craving for the party next Saturday. Even though I definitely like feeling special on my birthday, I also want to be able to celebrate the night away without being stuck in a tight dress or uncomfortable clothes. Usually, for my birthdays I stick to a typical “Vicky outfit”. Black skinnies or leggings, a silky top, statement earrings or necklace and a clutch. Throw in a pair of amazing heels and the look is perfect – at least in my books! This year I’ll be celebrating at my favorite restaurant with an intimate family dinner, followed by a party at the bar with around 30 people. If I had a little extra change, these items found on GIRISSIMA.com would go straight into my shopping bag! What would you guys wear to your own birthday party?
Guess what? I’ve been tea-toxing! I haven’t posted about it on Facebook or Instagram (@vickyheiler) because I didn’t want to hype the whole thing, and also because I wanted to take some time to test it before writing about it. First things first: for those of you that don’t know what tea-toxing is, it is basically detoxing by using tea (in combination with a healthy diet and exercise) to flush out toxins from your body. Simple as that. I’ve been playing around with the idea ever since Anna told me that she ordered her Tiny Tea back in December. But then with Christmas, our vacation and everything else I totally forgot about it. That is until about 2 weeks ago when I first discovered Bootea on Instagram. I decided to go with Bootea UK instead of other detox teas because it was the only one that actually listed ALL of the ingredients online, instead of just writing “chinese herbs”. I am now done with the first 7 days of teatox and wanted to share my experience so far with you.
