OUTFIT: hello Spring!

Spring has sprung! With 20°C and nothing but sunshine here in Vienna, my happiness scale just went up by 200%. So excited for a sunny weekend ahead and some time in the sun! By the way, we’re having a fleamarket and pop-up flower shop at our office today. If you happen to live in Vienna, be sure to stop by and shop our stuff, as well as pretty blooms for the weekend. Happy Spring!

BEAUTY TALK: big curls – video tutorial

While I love the idea of a beautiful hairstyle with big waves and effortless curls, it has always been one of my most dreaded exercises in the bathroom. By the time my hair was curled, I used to be completely frustrated and the curls would never come out that good. However, with a little patience and practice, I have found a way of creating big curls in less than 15 minutes. And I have thick hair! I recently filmed a tutorial for “beautystories“, the blog by Douglas Parfümerie, and thought some of you may like it. You can see the final result below, and simply click on over to beautystories for the full big curls video tutorial.

OUTFIT: stormy

There are two things, that make for extremely difficult settings to take outfit pictures. Rain and wind! We’ve had plenty (read: too much) of both these past few days! This is the best I could do with crazy winds, but at least it stopped raining, right? For a cozy look at the office I went for sneakers, leggings and layers. Easy enough and perfect to get through an overflowing inbox! Wishing you all an amazing, short week, with a taste of Summer coming our way this weekend (22°C  in Vienna – who else is excited??).

CRAVINGS: eye spy

There’s a little countdown going on right now. Today, we’re at 16 days, and it is time to get excited! Pretty soon, Kathi and I will be hoping on a plane for some fun (and business) in the sun. While it won’t involve any sand or ocean, we have a rooftop pool and 28°C forecast to look forward to. Reason enough to start planning outfits. Obviously the planning process usually just makes you realize, that you have exactly nothing to wear, so we’ve been browsing the online shops like pros. While doing so, I came across some Karen Walker sunglasses again, which have literally been on my wishlist for years! The only problem: They don’t sell them anywhere around here, so no chance to try them on – which would probably be a good idea before spending 230€ on sunglasses… But the longer I look at them, the more in love I am. Now I just need to make up my mind between the classic “Number One”, or the “Harvest”. What do you guys think?
