All those little things

Big cities are full of opportunities – and exploring all the beautiful spots here in Vienna by bike is defintiely a must whenever you plan to visit the beautiful capital of Austria. Unfortunately my beloved vintage bike, which i got 6 years ago from my dad, is still in my hometown and i guess it will probably remain that way since i’m too scared that someone would steal it. So when i was in Salzburg a few weeks ago i thought that it was about time to cross off things i always wanted to do - and guess what – enjoying a relaxing bike ride through my hometown was one thing of my summer bucket list! It might sound unspectacular but since i’m a strong believer in doing the little things i can honestly say that nothing could have made me more happy than this!

What to wear to a Summer Picnic

A few weeks ago i was invited by Martini to a super lovely picnic which took place at the Burggarten here in Vienna. Of course i was in the mood of wearing something light and airy! So in this case i opted for this lightblue skirt and white carmen top from Zara which became my summer must have number one. It was one of those pieces that allow you to show a little skin without looking to risqué. Another great piece you see in this post is definitely my all time favorite bag which is probably the best purchase i've ever made 2 years ago. I scored this beauty for 5 Euros at my local vintage store and found myself wearing it almost every other day which leads me to the conclusion that a well preserved piece from the past will always add a special uniqueness to any look.

Kiehls Midnight Recovery & Daily Reviving Concentrate

So a few weeks ago i was given these two concentrates by Kiehls and started using them right away! Since a lot of beauty bloggers have been raving about these ‚paraben free’ products in the past i was super curious to see some difference in my skin. Both products are bascially skin oils that you pop on in the morning before you put your make up on or in the evening after you cleanse your skin in order to bring back some life and reduce breakouts – and let me tell it worked! After a few weeks i’ve noticed that these two elixirs of essential oils have transformed my skin and definitely toned down any active breakouts and taken it to radiant and healthy. It simply hydrates without any oil residue or greasy feeling after it is applied. You can use it by itself but what i like to i just put a few drops (3-4) into my moisturizer and dab it on to my skin. In terms of the scent, both concentrates with 99.8 % natural ingredients, smell absolutley amazing – the daily version is a mixture of orange combined with a little grapefruit and lemon and the night version has a strong lavender scent which is right up my ally! Apart from the hydration and plumping up the skin this products also help you to decrease dark spots or any scars for a more even skin tone. So if you’re skin always looks tired and dull you can definitley give Kiehl’s Daily Reviving & Midnight Recorvery Concentrate a try!

Love Life

A few weeks ago i was invited by Pago to enjoy a super lovely breakfast in order to celebrate their new campaign „Love Life“. I know we all might have a different answer to the question what makes us happy and what makes life so special but it’s often the little things that can give you the ultimate feeling of happiness like these wonderful sunflowers which i got right during the event and immediatly made me smile! So for that day i decided that it was about time to rock my favorite new culotte which i got a few weeks ago at the Zara Sale and combined it the most comfortable sandals which i can literally from day to night!

Secret to Motivation | Fitness

As much as i love working out sometimes it’s still hard to get motivated and i know that there a lot of tips and tricks out there which helps you to get yourself up and do something for you body on a regular basis. And one thing is for sure – workout clothes play a huge part because for some reason i’m someone who’s so much more motivated when i’m wearing cool workout clothes – it simply gives you a good feeling and make your training more effective which obviously helps to get the result you are looking for!

So when it comes to workout clothes i’m someone who’s not only wearing tight fitted pieces but i’m also the type of person who only wears dark colors to the gym! I don’t know why but i was never a big fan of those crazy bright colors a lot of people love to wear. For that reason i’m super happy that new H&M  Every Victory Collection offers a lot of those pieces which are not only right up my ally but also affordable too. H&M developed the line in collaboration with the Swedish Olympic team and let me tell you i’m pretty amazed by the quality and the fitting as well (especially the pants will suck you in all the right places but definitely in a comfortable way). So here are my favorite picks that i’m currently wearing on high rotation!

Blue Off The Shoulder Dress

As you might have noticed that i’ve recently worn a lot off the shoulder looks and i thought it’s about time to share a look that’s actually out of my comfort zone. As you guys probably know i’m someone who loves to add some sort of a masculine touch to my looks but this time it's different. Because in my opinion this specific dress that i wore last week couldn’t be more feminine.  In this case i opted for nude sandals which gives the whole look a very balanced feel without being overly discrating from the lovely details of the dress. I don’t know why but somehow this dress always reminds me of Sophia Loren but also of Brigitte Bardot which is defnitely not a bad thing. So if you’re looking for the perfect, super comfy midi dress, look no further because the super light fabric seems to be the perfect option for those upcoming hot summer days!

Start Working Out at Home | Fitness

A few weeks ago i published my first post about my fitness journey which actually plays a huge part in my life since i already mentioned that i’ve always been pretty athletic and always enjoyed being active. So today i want to talk about my experience when it comes to working out at home.

A year ago i tried out Kayla Itsines’s 12-week Guide but after week 8 i realised that i’m not the type of person who loves to follow a certain plan which someone else created. So since youtube not only taught me how to use a camera properly and get your color grading to the next level when it comes to photoshop i thought it might be also the right place to search for workout sessions that i can choose by myself. Because whenever i’m trying out something new i noticed that i get much more motivated and enthusiastic in contrast to a finished plan. It’s not about loosing weight it’s all about getting leaner, stronger and fitter! So first things first - we all know that nutrion plays a huge part and it’s true that abs are made in the kitchen but today i’m showing you my favorite workouts when it comes to train  at home! I know that at the beginning it’s really hard to get motivated and overcome the inner laziness – especially when you thinking about working out at home – hello cozy couch! But like i said it’s all about trying out different exercises and have fun with new ways to train your body instead of following a certain plan which in my opion often put yourself under pressure follwed by a negative impact on the brain – and in all honesty i have always been a strongly believer that you should have a nice balance when it comes to your personal training programs and simply stay away from anything that screams „this is the only way that works“ because what works for my body might not work work for you since everyone’s different – starting from the metabolism to the bone structure etc.
