Salads & a Sat Outfit

0 Permalink

I am not sure what it is with me and salads at the moment – but I can’t get enough of them right now. I’m having at least one a day and usually make them myself at home. My mom showed me a dressing she always does and I absolutely love the taste! I’ll try to get a few nicer pictures sometime soon and then share it with you -it is super easy and makes any salad just taste so much better!

Also, I was wearing these sick looking jeans on Saturday and received a few compliments that night as well as quite a few PMs on my instagram and snapchat asking where I got these. So here it goes: Topshop! Lucky me I found them on one of my travels to London two weeks ago and I was so eager to finally wearing them. They are already such an eye-catcher that everything else can be kept rather simple I think. I paired it with an old blouse from Zara and shoes from Alto. Voila, easy, quick and eye-catching!

My weekend generally was amazing – I worked a bit on my uni stuff, went out (until 5am – rare for me!), barely slept Saturday night, went to the gym both on Saturday and Sunday (and can still feel it!), met a few new, lovely people and then went for a nice 2.5h walk Sunday afternoon with of my closer friends here in Zurich to enjoy the sun. I love the fact that Spring is coming – and it officially started as per yesterday – and cannot wait for the days to become longer and finally, finally warmer again! This week ahead is rather busy as well. Not just work, but also on the private side – I will be seeing quite a few people to catch up over coffees, lunches and dinners. I absolutely love it! What are your plans for the week ahead – anything good happening on the weekend ahead? xo

SundayFunday! Yesterday I went to the pop-up gallery opening of a friends’ sister – whom showed and is selling antique art and objects here in Zurich. The pieces are stunning and I would have loved to take some home with me! Sadly, they are a little over my budget of what I should/can spend. Nevertheless, if you are in Zurich you should definetely check it out here. After a calm dinner at home I got ready to go and meet some girls – so we went to Taos here in Zurich. A great lounge/bar with one of my favorite DJs – he’s a bit older but such a sweetheart and always playing great beats! I then joined over to the club but didn’t stay long and got home shortly after 1am – boring, I know!

This morning I started of easy and calm. I had my breakfast in bed and looked through all the social media stuff, checked out some of my favorite blogs and then started cooking at around noon. I just had this super simple (again) but yummy lunch; consisting of an omlette (2 egg whites & 1 egg, spinach, 1 onion, leek and some mushrooms on the side). A super busy Sunday ;) just how I like it. Sadly though I still need to work on some uni projects, so that will be most of my afternoon and early evening. I also need to iron some clothes so I might do that in front of the TV tonight. I am so excited to finish this uni course at the beginning of October and finally have a bit more me- and social-time (and even more so once I am done with this Masters for good hopefully early/mid next year). I’ve missed it! How’s your weekend been?

Cyprus; Paphos

Happy Humpday! Already mid-week and I can’t believe how fast the week has gone by so far. I only arrived Sunday home so I’ve been doing washings from vacation and the visitors we had before all week so far. Well, the days that I’ve actually had time. I’ve had meetings and conferences this week, was at a networking event last night and see friends afterwards (the joy of having no studies!). Tonight I’m actually out again for dinner with my bestie here in Zurich before she leaves to a few days of vacation – though the next days I’ve planned to stay in and actually cook once again. I actually have not cooked since 3 weeks now – horrible!

The biggest challenge this week however, was the weather. It is unbelievably cold – or so it feels. I’ve had to take out my winter jacket already and I’m frustrated just knowing I’ll be freezing when the actual winter and snow comes along. So I’ve been looking through a few photos of Cyprus again last night in bed and decided to share some more with you. Here is a lovely small beach we found, and a wreck we saw from further away we had to take a closer look at. It’s pretty cool to actually know it’s only been there since around 2011 (I think it was) – which means its quite new! There are quite a few wrecks around and near Cyprus, so this isn’t the only one we saw.

The weather there was amazing – I am still dwelling in bikini-thoughts and looking forward to my next journey into a warmer country. Let’s see when and where that will be! Now I’ve got to get ready soon for dinner – sushi; so good. Wishing you a great continuing week! xo

Friday Feelings

0 Permalink

Thank the heaven it’s Friday! The week goes by so, so fast! Wasn’t it Monday, like just two days ago? It surely feels like it – though I guess that is a good sign! I am so relieved however, that it is Friday again! The week has been full of meetings and appointments and with my head spinning with a thousand thoughts at night. I am officially ready to throw myself onto the couch tonight and relax! It will probably have to wait a little longer though, since I am in the making-off some plans for tonight with a friend. I was thinking going out to a bar and sipping on some drinks –  what do you think? I actually shot this photo whilst making some others of myself and my new leather jacket, so you can see a sneak-preview with this one I guess. I have no clue what I was trying to make, what pose it was supposed to be or what happened to my hair. I do quite like it though in the end – it’s got this Rock’n’Roll feeling to it, don’t you think? This photo has actually been on my Facebook page since Sunday – have you seen it already? I will be sharing the other pictures with you in the upcoming days, so stay tuned on that one!

I love Rock’n’Roll! (That sentenced just reminded me of Britney and her old songs.. can anyone relate?)It is the complete opposite in regards to style and lifestyle when looking at my Monday through Fridays at work. However I love adding some R’n’R into my style when I’m off duty and don’t have to turn up to meetings. I like calling it my “rebel”-side – and it will begin right this early evening, when I leave my office and jump home to change into my weekend clothes. With that, I wish you all a great friday and a great, great weekend to come! xo

 

 

 

the Allrounder at Day and Night

0 Permalink

Happy Friday everyone! I can’t get over how fast time passes – it’s incredible! Today I want to share another style combination for you. I love combining my day outfit, so that it can easily be transformed to a nights out event. It’s incredibly important for me to look chic during the day for business and then be able to easily pull-up the outfit for when I’m out; without having the time to majorly change. So I love taking a pair of shoes and a shirt with me to work if I know I’ll be out in the evening again. Of course, this outfit is not something I would wear with clients – it’s not thaaat professional, but it’s a good, easy and chic “casual” outfit for winter. What’s really important to me is to always have a few items that I like to call the Allrounders – those that I can wear both at day and night with easy combinations.

With the winter coming now – ok, it’s freezing autumn already – I love wearing a pair of comfortable black leather pants. They are subtle enough to wear at day and glam enough for night’s out at a bar or club. Obviously, the major accessories such as a brilliant watch and some earrings are a no-brainer. And mascara! I cannot live without my mascara from Chanel. I love getting ready in general, but often times I don’t have enough time to sit hours (just kidding!) in front of the mirror or I just cannot be bothered, and enjoy a day without makeup on. But I cannot live without my mascara – not even for that walk to the supermarket across the street.

This watch is actually a men’s watch – but hey: who says you can’t wear men’s fashion? I say you can! Actually, I already own two men’s watches, as I’m oftentimes into those larger, heavier watches. I love the contrast of a big watch to a females’ wrist. There’s just something about it – or is that only me, haha? In general, I believe one piece of jewelry can be make such a difference to the whole outfit. Take this watch, for example. On one hand it can be combined so easily with so many different styles. On the other hand, it already has such a presence that a) not many other accessories are needed and b) it almost is a reason to style the outfit a certain way. I also have some fine jewelry pieces, were I often have the feeling I want to style the outfit a little more femine – or in contrast: totally grunge!

I love how the below Allrounders can be easily worn during the day with a comfortable sweater (love that one – just bought it yesterday!) and a nice pair of biker boots and hat. Comes the sunset, come the heels. The great thing about leather pants is you can literally wear them with any kind of shoe – be it sneakers, heels, flats or boots: it seriously always works! And that H&M x Alexander Wang shirt (yes, in my collection already!): how cool is that? Now I only need those heels, clutch and watch. I can’t seem to get over these items!

Which is your favorite item – or combination?
