NEW IN: chanello #1

Oh Chanel! It seems that it is an endless lovestory for most girls – and I am definitely no exception! While the bags that are on my wishlist will have to wait (for now), I finally splurged on something I had been craving for a long time. Over the past few months and weeks, I repeatedly spotted a Chanel brooch on Caro and Anni’s Instagram feeds. Everytime I saw it, I fell in love a little more. I had been to Chanel a few times, but they only had brooches from the supermarket collection in store. Then, this Friday I finally got lucky. And now it is mine ♥ Chanello no.1 in my closet!

CRAVINGS: Sunday at home

Yesterday I saw a quote on Instagram that read “stop the glorification of busy” and for some reason it really stuck with me. It seems that now adays the busier you seem, the cooler and more important you are. Admittedly, we live in a very fast-paced society and you do need to stay busy to be able to keep up – I’ve found that to be more true than ever being self-employed. If you don’t get s*** done, someone else will jump at the opportunity. But like most things in life, it is all about the right balance. Recently, I’ve made it a point to keep work in a Monday through Friday time frame and really try to “turn off” on the weekends and keep myself from answering emails past 8pm. Today I slept in until 11, yesterday it was 11:30. And I love it. Just like today will be all about painting my nails, good food, friends and lounging on the couch all day. Because guess what? It is ok to NOT be busy some times. Happy Sunday!

CRAVINGS: under 30€

Most of the items on my personal lust-list are usually super expensive – hence the wishlist factor! However, sometimes I come across pieces that are not only super pretty, but also a really good deal. For this week’s cravings, I’ve decided to round up a few favorites from my “under 30€” wishlist. Especially with Christmas creeping up on us it can be helpful to have a few affordable items on your list, which can also make for great gifts for your girlfriends or sister. What’s on your affordable wishlist?

OUTFIT: Hello Hallhuber!

As you guys know, I am a pretty big HALLHUBER addict (I mean I own 3 of the same coated skinny jeans …). I discovered the brand about 3 years ago and have since then added quite a few pieces to my closet. They are mostly timeless basics that I love to wear on an almost daily basis. That being said, I am all the more excited to share that Kathi and I get to be a part of the opening of their brand new flagship store on the Kärntnerstraße, corner Annagasse. The new location opened it’s doors today in the morning and they have a series of specials planned for the next 3 days, including bubbly drinks and fun shopping! We’ll be at the store on Saturday from 12 – 6pm and would love to personally chat and shop with some of you! For the occasion I decided to shop some items from the current fall/winter collection and wanted to share the look with you. Leather leggings, a plaid shirt and sneakers always work!
