Roadtrip Reloaded

So as you know, i went on an adventure through Tuscany last summer – we went from Verona to San Gimgnano, visited Siena for one day and ended up in Firenze for the very last days. This little roadtrip of 9 Days was truly one of a kind and after thinking about new destinations for 2018 my boyfriend and i decided to do it all over again. Although there are so many options all over Europe you can reach by car  i have to says that i always had this special connections with Italy. I was never the type with a long travel bucket list i was always more into finding a special feeling, an atmosphere combined with a couple of drinks and lots of laughters. Of course i not going to repeat the same vacation every year but for now i’m more than thrilled to experience another road trip in the beginning of August. So since i’m all about La Dolce Vita i got the chance to shoot this Polka Dot Jumpsuit inside of a very special car. Obviously it matched my look perfectly and in order to bring back a little bit more edge i opted for Matrix inspired glasses that i’ve been rocking for a couple of months.

Red Shades

There is no better time than the new season to get yourself a new pair of cool glasses but when your a creature of habit and found yourself wearing the same shades over and over again it can be tough finding a new pair. Somehow i always sticked to round shades which always worked great for my facial features but being repetitive for years can be quite boring. So since Matrix-inspired thin sunglasses are having a massive comeback i thought i would give it a go. Of course, these kind of sunglasses don’t actually serve the purpose of protecting the eyes from the sun – especially when your wearing them down on the bridge of your nose but adding a fun accessory to a super basic look can make your outfit more interesting instantly. No more hiding from the camera it’s time to put yourself out there.

Daily Make-up Favorites

It’s been a while since i talked about beauty products but since i changed up a few things when it comes to my every day make up look i thought it’s time to share what i truly enjoy and probably won't replace anytime soon. 

Last year at the Estée Lauder Open House i was gifted this super tiny  Smashbox Cover Shot Matte Eye Palette (Color Matte). Somehow it took me months to get full use out of it but also to realizie that these colors are perfect when i’m travelling. With 6 matte and two .... i’m able to create any look for any occasion from day to night.

Another favorite product of mine would have to be the new YSL Tatouage Couture Matte Lip stain. Every since i started using the shade 7 i was obsessed right away. This little innovative lip stain is exactly what i was always looking for. This formula gives lips matte tattoo-like color that is super lightweight and non-drying. Perfect for anyone who’s always struggeling with matte lipsticks.

YSL Touche Eclat All in One Glow – it’s a tinted moisturizer that truly stands out. It’s in a suqezzy tube which has an actual pump which is always a plus. It’s so much more little easier too use and super convinient as well. One thing i noticed right away was the formula which is almost like a mousse. It gives you a radiant natural glow with a dewy finish on top. 

Of course these recommendations are more on the pricer side but i'm already planning sharing my favorite beauty products from the Drugstore since i always mix high end and with affordable make up products. So stay tuned!

A Cinderella Moment at the Opera Ball 2018


Last thursday I had the honor of attending the Vienna Opera Ball for the second time in my life. As I already mentioned on the blog Humanic invited me to the biggest event of the year where I was in charge of their instagram account. I was not only responsible for capturing beautiful moments of the night but I was also the one who documented their amazing service for the ladies. As the official shoe partner they had the brilliant idea to offer women a pair of glittery ballerinas – and let me tell you, it was widely popular! Of course every woman knows there is nothing more flattering than a leg-lengthening heel but when the need for comfort is key and your not able to walk without pain anymore it’s time for a Cinderella moment and leave your own footwear behind.

But let’s start at the very beginning. Instead of shooting outside, like I did last year, I decided to capture my look at the Coco Chanel inspired mirrored glass stairs at the Park Hyatt Vienna, which leads from the hotel bar to the lobby, smoking salon and restaurant. Adapted to the dress code (black tie) I went for a floor-length gown in navy blue by the lovely Austrian designer Claus Tyler and paired it with classic peacock blue pumps by Peter Kaiser - find a similar option here

In order to get in the right mood i kicked off the evening with a fantastic dinner before i made my way to the Humanic Corner at the Opera Ball. The minute I arrived I was pretty surprised that even right after the opening ceremony so many women felt the urge to get their hands on some ballerinas. Even two debutantes showed up giving me  the chance to have a closer look at their incredible tiaras As usual the hours passed by pretty quickly and before I headed home I took a walk through the Opera in order to share this special experience via Instastory. It’s so incredible how much you can actually explore and i can honestly recommend checking out the building to the full whenever you may have the chance to attend the Opera Ball. 

Another highlight of the night was definitely to see that this annual event was attended by some 5,000 guests from the worlds of culture, business, academia and politics. It's truly an evening of traditional entertainment that cannot be compared with anything else and that's why many of them danced the night away until the very last minute. But always be prepared and make sure to be equipped with the right tools. Especially when you opt for a special updo that requires extra  reinforcement - simply stash a few bobby pins at the bottom of your clutch. I would also suggest packing some safety pins in case of any wardrobe malfunction like popped buttons or broken zips. To extend your little survival kit bring some blotting papers (it just takes out the oil and doesn't affect your make-up) and of course some plasters because sometimes you don't know how much your shoes are going to hurt after you have worn them for a couple of hours. Furthermore i always make sure to stick to one drink for the night instead of mixing everything. Besides the alcoholic drinks i always ask for a glass of tap water to be in control and still have a good time. And last but not least - if you plan to use your smartphone to take pictures and capture memories, portable battery chargers give you ultimate freedom while you're out and about. 

So with these things in mind you can definitely extend the night but of course all good things have to come to an end. A Big thank you to Humanic and the Fashionsquad for this amazing opportunity.

Turtleneck Enthusiast

The main clothing item i always wear at this time of the year is 100 percent a turtle neck. Some people absolutely hate the feeling having something wrapped around their neck but i’m quite the opposite. It’s not only such an effortless piece that is pretty easy to style but it’s always have been the epitome of my style. Some things never change and some things do. Which leads me to my current love affair with pointy kitten heels. I never thought that i would became such a fan of this kind of shoes but as i'm getting older and prefer comfort way to much but still love the extra height. So whenever i'm attending a work event, a party or simply walk around the city these kind of models are my go to number one without killing my feet.

In the Mountains

Mid January i had the pleasure to escape from the city and enjoy 4 days at the beautiful resort Almdorf Seinerzeit. I have to mention that i’ve been here before but i didn’t know that this place expanded and added so much little houses aka chalets that i was more than happy to experience something new. It’s such a lovely spot in the mountains with the perfect mix between fine, true built mountain log cabins and 21st century luxury.

Of course i had to take advantage of this winter wonderland and shot one of my favorite looks, when it comes to layring up for the cold days, at our private terrace. Often times it’s hard to find a look that works in this conditions and looks fashionable at the same time. This time i tried something new and paired my favorite boots with a grey mid length skirt. To keep me warm i opted for a layerd look and decided to wear as much as possible under my biker coat. To top things off i went with a classic fanny bag which is probably the best choice when you go for a walk in the snow.
