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!
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?
When it comes to sales, I am quite the expert at snagging a good deal. I’ve mentioned it a few times before, but some of my absolut favorite items in my closet were amazing steals at discounted prices (ie. my beloved Falabella at -40%). Obviously some basics might never go into sale, but the more special items are unique and are sometimes “left over” by the end of the season. Now, when it comes to sales, I feel that midseason discounts are the most fun, simply because you can shop items that you can actually still wear at the time for a really good price. GIRISSIMA.com is currently having their midseason sale with up to 70% off and there are a few items I’ve literally had my eye on all season, such as the gorgeous light blue peplum, fluffy coat and embellished sweater. These will all be perfect for winter, but as their already clearing their stock for new items to arrive they now only cost a fraction of the original price. Oh happy day, you’ve gotta love sales!
Even though we’re currently blessed with quite a bit of sunshine here in Vienna, you can tell it is definitely Fall. Once the sun disappears, it quickly cools down and gets super chilly. My must-have piece for those days is a good pair of leggings. I love how easy they are to wear, while still being so versatile and stylish. Throw on an oversized sweater and biker boots with your leggings, and you’re set for a day in class or a cozy day at the office. Pair them with heels and a sequin top, and you can take them out to dinner with the girls. While I already own a fairly extensive collection, I can’t wait to pick up a few new Fall trends this year, such as corduroy or herringbone. Founded more than 35 years ago by two female artists in New York City, HUE has been the most innovative force in fashion legwear for more than three decades. That’s why I’ve teamed up with the brand that has focused on leggings for so many years, to style two looks from my Sunday Cravings this week.
