OUTFIT: black layers

Monday morning and nothing to wear! That’s basically what goes on in my head every single week. Well, good thing there is the “color” black. Today’s remedy was a simple one: grab as many black items as possible and layer them all over another, in order to be warm enough with the freezing temperatures outside. Easy enough, right? Wishing you all a happy Monday!

BEAUTY TALK: so shiny

During the Winter I generally have a harder time with my skin, nails and hair. The dry heating air seems to literally make my skin crackle, my nails break at every occasion (that’s why I currently even have a thin layer of gel over my regular nails) and my hair, which is usually super easy going, looks more dull and flies all over the place, due to it being static. But I don’t care if it is Winter or not, I want shiny, pretty hair!! Luckily, Guhl recently came to my rescue by introducing me to their new “Seidenglanz(= silk shine) line for dry and dull hair - it seriously only took one wash and rinse for silky hair.
Some of you may remember this video, where I mentioned that I was on the lookout for new hair products in terms of shampoo and conditioner. Well, I’ve tried a few products since, and all are good in their own way. However, the new line by Guhl really impressed me. I used a whole bunch of Guhl products for my hair last Winter (remember this post?) and so it actually doesn’t come as a surprise, that I love the new line. Not to mention the pink packaging …

Do any of you use Guhl products? Which are your favorite?

The time we were asked to leave …

This past weekend, I visited London with the family and I was super excited to try Nopi, an Ottolenghi restaurant, because I had gotten the recommendation from a true foodie. After not getting a table at Sketch or Momo’s (where we wanted to go for afternoon tea), we decided to head to Nopi for cocktails in Soho instead. You guys know how much I love sharing amazing restaurants, hotels and other places with you, but unfortunately today’s reason for this post is a negative experience … Don’t get me wrong, the cocktails were absolutely delicious and the food looked amazing, plus I liked the interior a lot. However, the way we were treated is absolutely not o.k. in my opinion. Here’s what happened:

OUTFIT: 1.900m elevation

One of my personal highlights from our Winter get-away to Schladming was a day spent way up on the mountain at the Schafalm at 1.900m elevation. Hot chocolate and fries for lunch, cuddles with baby sheep, one of the prettiest sunsets I have ever seen, a little mishap of missing the last cable car down to town and way too much fun in the snow. As much as I love Summer, days like the one we had last week really make Winter pretty awesome too! Obviously the main criteria outfit-wise was to keep warm and cozy, which is where Zalando came in to play. I picked out a super fluffy coat by Topshop (so predictable, right?), warm UGG boots and an oversized scarf to keep me snug all day.
