10 Things You Didn’t Know About Flora Miranda

Hello there,

Flora Miranda.  Ever heard of her?  No?  Well, this post is about to change that.  The talented designer contacted me a couple of months ago to introduce me her concept.  And to be completely honest with you, it was a pleasant discovery for me too.  So, who’s she?  Let’s get to know each other 🙂

 1.  Flora Miranda was born in Austria.

2.  When I asked her when she got her first taste for fashion, she said: “As a young teenager I participated in the Viennese fashion contest “Kids in Fashion” every year, with some drawings, and each year my drawings made it and the designs were realised by fashion students and were shown on a catwalk. However, that was just a little thing on the side because I was mainly occupied with painting. In 2016 I had the opportunity to do an internship at a Swiss sports company, where I was more fascinated by the team building and the way the company was built than by the technical drawings the fashion designers were spending their time on. When a year later I was given a book about Belgian fashion design I made my final decision. I remember thinking that what I wanted to do in painting I could bring to the body in 3D. In this book I saw a very artistic approach, an alternative view on beauty and gender. Seeing fashion as an art form and recognising that fashion is more than a technical drawing but rather coordinates various disciplines, I was very drawn to take this path.” Continue reading “10 Things You Didn’t Know About Flora Miranda”

2017 Holiday Gift Guide

Holidays can be super stressful.  What am I gonna wear?  (That’s for an upcoming post my dears) What am I gonna prepare for my guests?  What kind of table decoration am I gonna come up with?  How am I gonna *survive* the season?

All these questions are legit.  But in this post, I’ll answer another super duper important question: WHAT ON EARTH CAN I POSSIBLY BUY FOR EVERYONE AND HOW CAN I MAKE SURE THEY LIKE IT?????  It could possibly be one of the most complex questions ever asked on the face of the earth.  Right?!  Nothing worse than to hand someone you love a gift that they hate.  The look on their faces?  It can be haunting.  So here, I’ll try to prevent you from experiencing this dreadful situation.  You can thank me later 😀

10 Things You Didn’t Know About Erdem Moralioglu

Erdem x H&M is the new hot collection right now.  You know that it’s not the first time the Swedish giant  collaborates with a couture designer.  There were, among others, Kenzo, Balmain, and Versace.

You will read and see (if you haven’t already) a lot about, and of the collaboration.  The collection involves a lot of florals and great pieces.

Dinard Photo Diary

Hey there,

I hope you’re all doing great!

I don’t know if you know this (if you follow me on Instagram, you might remember), but about a month ago I went on holiday to Dinard.  It is a commune on the Côte d’Émeraude of Brittany (it’s also the name of Iwan Rheon’s first album, by the way).  And I totally fell in love with that place.  It’s cute.  It’s charming, The views are gorgeous.  I’m sure that some of you might not agree with me, thinking “what’s the big deal?”; but I absolutely loved it and honestly I can’t wait to go back.

Let’s reminisce about my (too short) trip over there and let me know what you think 🙂

It’s September: Back To Work(ing-Out)!

Hello there,

It’s September again. I like September because to me, it’s always the time when I feel like I can make big changes. It’s also the time when I tell myself to get my s*&% together. If you read me from time to time, you might know that I like sports. But I don’t only like watching sports, I also love working out! However, during the summer, it’s always more chaotic than during the rest of the year. So now, it’s the time when I get back to my routine: work, and a healthy lifestyle. In other words, it’s workout time!
