OUTFIT: spring trench coat

One of the items that is at the very top of my list of Spring Must-Haves this year, is a light trench coat. After a few weeks of searching for the perfect one, I spotted this peach-y version. Love at first sight and ordered in a heart beat. The material is super soft and I love the color, to go with those first few sunny days! Spring has officially begun and I am ready! Happy Sunday

BEAUTY TALK: a new smile

A smile is happiness you’ll find right under your nose.”
-Tom Wilson

Whenever someone asks me to describe myself, I would usually say that I am a happy person, with a love for the beautiful things in life. My friends and family mean the world to me and I eat too much hummus. There are so many different reasons that make me smile, and I think a good laugh can cure a lot of heartaches. That being said, I have been playing with a thought, which I wanted to share with you for today’s beauty talk…

OUTFIT: the perfect white skinny jeans

Up until recently, white skinny jeans evoked a whole lot of respect on my part. It seemed that you either had to be a model or Brazilian beach babe for those white pants to look good on you. However, with Spring approaching quickly in Vienna, I had to give the whole thing another try and decided to order this pair last week. They arrived yesterday, fit like a glove and I can officially say that the mission of the perfect white skinny jeans has been accomplished. My favorite part about them? The cut-off seam at the bottom, which shows off the ankles – love that for warmer days!

This Year Will Be Different

I can’t help but get excited whenever the post man rings the bell. While I usually know exactly what is arriving, today I had a super special surprise! But let’s rewind a little: Last Fall, Monika Kanokova asked if I had time for an interview for her upcoming book. Of course I had time – but why me? Monika quickly explained that she wanted to create the ultimate freelance guide to help young women thinking about taking the step towards self-employment. We all have big dreams, but sometimes that is just what they will forever be: dreams… We find an excuse why those dreams have to wait, why it would never work, or why we are happy just they way things are. But guess what? This Year Will Be Different! That year was 2014 for me, when Kathi and I decided to take the plunge and spend all our time and energy on something we truly believe in. It worked for us, and it can work for you just the same!
