How to: Spring Trends

Hello my lovely readers,

It's finally Spring! I've been looking forward to it because winter was very hectic and stressful for me. I'm definitely in need of some sunshine and fun. Time to get out more, be more productive, dress a little lighter and why not try a new trend?

A Woman's View on the 50's classic: The Country Girl

Hello ladies and gents

Today’s post is going to be a little different from usual. There’s no discussing hem lengths and lipstick shades involved. This is a subject that is very dear to me and hopefully you can take something from it.

I just finished watching George Seaton’s 1954 drama “The Country Girl” starring Grace Kelly and Bing Crosby. Grace Kelly received an Academy Award for her stellar performance in the film.

The film explores the efforts of Frank Elgin, a struggling washed-up actor to rise to the circumstances when he finally lands a lead role in a musical play, directed by Bernie Dodd who strongly believes in him from the very beginning. The film also explores his relationship with his wife Georgie who is the behind-the-scenes supporter and the one who carries the burden of a secret that looms over their marriage and is the cause for her husband’s demise.

Sweater Weather Wardrobe: The Must-Haves + 2015 Goals!

Happy Sunday everyone and Happy (late) New Year!

I hope the new year has been treating you kind so far. I hope you're carrying your 2015 resolutions through . I'm trying to at least. But more on that later.

The temperatures have been dropping drastically during the past couple of weeks.  We're really not used to this kind of cold here, so taking all measures necessary against this tough weather is not an easy task. Especially when it comes to dressing cute.

Despite what you've been told you actually can dress nice and chic while feeling warm and cozy.

Steal Her Style: Olivia Palermo

Hello lovelies,

Are you excited for New Year's Eve yet?

It took me forever to figure out my NYE plans and they're finally all set. That night tends to be quite stressful. You feel like you have to go somewhere, you have to have fun. Word of advice: don't give in to the pressure. If you don't feel like doing anything save yourself from the crazy traffic and crammed clubs and bars and stay at home. There's absolutely nothing wrong with that. I know because I was literally ready to give up making all these plans, because it was just so stressful. But I somehow managed to arrange something for that night.

In case you're still wondering what to wear on the big night I have a couple of posts dedicated to that:
The New Party Makeup
Celebrity-inspired Partywear
Festive Casual Looks

But now on to something entirely different: this post has some serious dose of Olivia Palermo inspiration (if you didn't figure it out already lol). If you've followed this blog for some time now you might have noticed a have a slight obsession with Olivia Palermo and her style. I mean who can deny that, that woman is perfection. She goes from modern glamorous to boho chic in no time and she always manages to look polished wherever she goes. That is my motto: look polished no matter what you wear. Whether it is a simple tee, shorts and ballet flats or an LBD and stilettos make sure your outfit comes together and looks sophisticated and elegant.

I broke down for you some of her killer looks and recreated them using more affordable items.

DIY Beauty: 3 Tested & Recommended Face Masks (+ bonus toner recipe!)

Hello my lovely readers,

Merry Christmas!

I don't know about you, but on Christmas Eve this year I'll stay in, light up some candles (Yankee "Honey glow" is my current fave!) and go on full cozy cocooning mode. I just finished doing my face masks so I can be glowing tomorrow and I'm about to do my nails. Now I just need to make myself a cup of hot cocoa and put on a Christmas flick to set the festive mood.
