28th ROMY GALA

Getting invited to super special events here in Vienna where you not only get the chance to be part of an exclusive evening surrounded  by old history  but also get the opportunity to connect with interesting and fun people is definitely one of the best part about blogging. So when the lovely people of the PR agency Themata ask me if i want to join them to the ROMY GALA (organized every year by the daily newspaper Kurier), which is an austrian TV award named after the great austrian actress Romy Schneider, i immidiatly said yes.

Since a gala is an evening of glitz and glamour i was a little bit concerned what to wear but fortunately i was able to pick out a dress from Escada – a dream came true. I picked out this beautfiul red dress which was not only super comfortable but also inspired me to create an old hollywood look from head to toe.

Black Mom Jeans


Let me tell you – the fascination with all things #90s is still going strong – especially when we are talking about mom jeans. But you better pay special attention how they look on your body. Mom Jeans have this special look that will turn your outfit from boring to extraordinary without being super tight and uncomfortable to wear – quite the opposite i would say. So when i found myself wearing them on a regular basis i realisied that i was still missing a black pair. I don’t know about you guys but sometimes when i go out at night i feel wearing darker clothes compared to my outfits i’m wearing during the day. So whenever i decided to wear a black top and mom jeans i always ended up craving black denim. Luckily i found this amazing pair from H&M with has the perfect shape which allowes me to wear my favorite top tucked in order to accentuate my waist. Besides the fact that i’m wearing them on high rotation they are probably the perfect mom jeans for day and night!

Oh Salzburg!

Back in the days when i was living in Salzburg i honestly took the beauty of it for granted but whenever i have time and the chance to spend few days in my Hometown i always enjoy every second to the fullest. It’s always something special about where are you coming from because it’s your memories and it will always be a part of you. So exactly one week ago i finally got the chance to shoot at the ‚Staatsbrücke’ which is actually super crowed and almost impossible to shoot with no people in the background. Can’t wait to be back in two weeks!

SKIN TALK | Flawless Spring Skin

When it comes to skin care i think it’s always pretty difficult to recommend products since not everything is working for everybody. As a daughter of an expert in the field of beauty i was aware of the importance of skin care from a very young age.

Over the last few years i noticed that a lot of girls struggeling with their skin and despairing when nothing is working. One of the main advice i always suggest and preach for many many years is getting a professional facial beauty analysis – and i’m not talking about going to a store and have a chat with a sale associate. It’s super important to identify your skin conditions or concers by a professional esthetician before you keep buying stuff and experiment with all those hyped products out there that may not be right for you – because every skin is different, everyone has a different lifestyle, diet and so on which simply means everyone needs a individual treatment.

I’m someone who has sensitive combination skin and for more than 8 years i’ve been using Janssen Cosmetics. It’s a brand that i truly believe in and i’ve been hooked ever since i notice the change in my skin texture. The two products that i’ve been consistently using year in and year out are the Radiant Firming Tonic (step 1) and the either the Anti-Polution Cream (step 4) or the Detox Cream also by Janssen. These are by far my favorite products that have worked wonders for me. After i cleansed my skin properly i always use the tonic in order to prepare my skin for the next step. For the last couple of weeks i added two more products that i honestly really enjoyed. The Clinique freshpressed daily Booster with Pure Vitamin C10 %. This little container has a dual chambered design which keeps the Vitamin C fresh until mixed. You can either mix 2 drops of the activated booster into your moisturiser or directly on your face. You can use this product for about 8 to 10 days  Overall my skin looked more even and i noticed a fresher complexion.

Another product which i also added to my daily moisturizing routine is the La Mer Revitalizing Hydrating Serum. It absorbs into the skin without any greasy or sticky after feel. I have been using this beauty for few weeks now and my skin actually really loves it. It seems to be the perfect additon which provides moisture but als creates a more radiant complexion. Last but not least i always use my favorite moisturizing cream i swear by – the Anti Pollution Cream by Janssen. With a multi-active extract from flowers of the red camellia the cream strengthens the skin’s resistance to environmental pollutants. It’s an innovative cream for day and night which 100% help leave skin moisturized.

Diesel Two Piece


Mixing different pieces and creating a super interesting looks is definitely something i love doing every day - but sometimes i prefer dressing in an easy way. So when i was leaving for Salzburg for the weekend i was super happy to rock my new Diesel two piece set which is not super comfy but also fashionable at the same time. In order to brighten up the outfit i went for my favorite in-between-season coat which became such a stable that i can truly recommend. I never thought that get so much use out of it but sometimes the unexpected pieces always turn out to be the best!

Capetown | Pink House


Exactly one week ago i landed in Capetown for  the very first time. I had absolutely no clue what to expect but let me tell you – i had a wonderful time. Those of you who follow me on my instagram have probably seen a few impressions of my trip to South Africa where i was booked for a TV campaign with Teekanne (more about that soon). Of course i couldn’t resist getting one of my looks shot in front of a colored house in Bo-kaap that is one of the oldest and the most fascinating residental areas in the South African city of Capetown.

London w/ Bonprix


A little over three weeks ago i was invited to London to join the bonprix FashionClub Event. It alll started with a warm welcome at an old warehouse which is only available for events. Since we were invited to not only have a look at the upcoming collection we also got the chance to choose our favorite looks which we shot right away. Since the location had so many cool corners to offer i thought i might be a cool idea to shoot at the terrace which was right up my ally and matched perfectly with my outfit. Inspired by the fashion icon Victoria Beckham, i went for this oversized pants and a simple black shirt. Sometimes less is more. Besides the shooting i was super happy that i finally got the chance to share this experience with Bianca from Worryaboutitlater who also shot this amazing pictures!

Spring Make-Up | Gold & Glitter


Spring is without a doubt one of my favorite season right after Fall.  So i thought it's time to show you my favorite look i love to wear during spring and summer because what’s better to switch up your make up routine when a new season is knocking on the door. In order to achieve a nice and fresh make-up look i always start moisturizing my face. At the moment i’m using a Perfect World by Origins which is an age-defense moisturizer with white tea and a SPF 40. It contains several powerful natural ingriedients and essential oils. When it’s all settled in i always tend to use a primer which is a step that became crucial to me in the last couple of years. I’m not loving a particular one but over the last few weeks i start using the Sleek primer which definitley helps minimizing pores. 

Next step – foundation. When it comes to spring I like to pick things that feel quite light and fresh on the skin but still gives me a good amount of coverage. I’m currently a big fan of the Bourjois HealthyMix which really smoothes out the skin, doesn’t feel heavy and definitely gives you a lovely glow throughout the day. After applying a little bit of concealer and filling out my eyebrows i’m ready for some eyeshadow. Usually i always stick to my matte tones but for some reason i completely fell in love with glitter. Since i got this brandnew palette called ‚shining hour’ created by Kabuki for MAC (will be on the market very soon), i felt super inspired and stepped out of my comfort zone. For this look i went for the orange glitter eyeshadow which is obviously perfect if you love to add the ultimative shine to your lid. Personally i can’t not get over this product since each eye shadow gives you this amazing effect when you open your eyes. 

Moving on to the cheeks. Of course i’m still a big fan of countouring but for Spring and Summer i’m ready for some gold highlights to warm up my face. Currenlty i really admire the Bobbi Brown Highlighting Powder called ‚Bronze Glow’ which became such a hot product for me that i can highly recommend. To finalize this look i added a few layers of my favorite mascara byL.O.V to my lashes and put on some nude/peachylipstick(Number 162) by GOSH. So what do you think of this look?!

Oh London!


If there is one color that i rarely wear it’s definitely red. But as i mentioned in a previous post that whenever i’m traveling i often try to avoid choosing pieces that i wear over and over again. For example this red Hugo boss sweater which was perfect for my last trip to London. Combined with this lovley skirt and this amazing scenery i ended up wearing something a little bit more creative and different. Speaking of traveling - i'm currently in Capetown for a really cool project i'm working on together with Julia from OurcleanJourney. Super excited to show you the final outcome! So stay tuned!

Vienna Opera Ball with Swarovski | Le Beau Danube Bleu

When I moved to Vienna 6 years ago i knew that one of the things that i absolutely wanted to cross off my bucketlist was definitely ‚a night at the Opera'. It’s such an unique expereince where you're not only surrounded by old traditions but you also get the chance to dress up in a really spectacular way. So when Swarovski,  ask me if i wanted to join them at the Opera Ball i immediately said yes. Luckily i still had one unworn dress in my closet that was truly pefect for such an event, so i didn't reallly felt stressed out like i guess many other women do. It's simply the question number one – what to wear – but fortunately i only had to figure out what hairstlye i should go for. So when the day finally arrived i was full of excitement.

Along with Kathi from Ketchembunnies, who was my partner in crime fort hat night, and lovely Nina from YouRockMyLife we decided to shoot our looks, which by the way featured also a few pieces of the Swarovski Atelier Collection, at the Albertina.  At this point i would love to thank Nina’s better half Patrick from BecauseofLight for all the lovely pictures he captured before we kicked of the night. After hour little shooting we headed the Hotel Sacher where we were also invited to a super lovely dinner! I have to say that it was truly magical when we first stepped into the dining room. Three hours later the long wait for the main part of the evening was finally over! Right before we got served our last course we couldn’t wait any longer and made ourselves on the way to the red carpet of the Opera. 

Right after we entered the phenomal building we enjoyed a wonderful opening where we also spotted all the debutants wearing the shining tiara which was designed by Karl Lagerfeld for Since Swarovski this year. The hours past by and so we tried to get the best out of this night. We checked out the Crystal Bar, spend a few minutes at the Swarovski box (Loge) and also made it to the dancefloor where Patrick took the time to dance with each of us girls. We had such a blast that i’m still super happy about this special night which is somehow a once-in-a-lifetime experience. So big thanks to Swarovski for this amazing opportunity.

A little Piece of Paris | 9th District

I can’t believe that Spring is almost here. It’s such a relief being able to walk around outside, listening to the lovley chirping sound and shooting after 4 pm without putting on 1000 layers in order to keep you warm. That’s why i decided to put together a look which features a few of my favorite pieces and rock this outfit at my favortie locatioin in the 9th district of Vienna. I remember shooting here 6 years ago when i moved from Salzburg to the big city – the 9th district was always super special for me. Compared to the other districts it’s definitely less crowed and busy – but that’s exactly what i love about it. Calm, quite and lovely to walk around. I can highly recommend walking through the Palais Liechtenstein Park and visiting the Servitenviertel where you should definitely have a look at the new Café La Mercerie which is probably the cutest french bistro you can discover in Vienna which obviously always inspries me to channel my inner parisian.

Last Minute Carnival Look

It’s carnival season in Europe and if you’re thinking about participating and planing to dress up, i thought i’d share two looks that you can achieve in less then 15 minutes. Of course not everyone wants to spend hours and a lot of money on a look that you only rock for one night. That’s why i found two looks, that are not only completely different compared to each other, but also super budget friendly.

The first look is all about stars & glitter. Especially when you always wanted to try out new make up trends carnival is probably the time to test-drive colored looks. In my case i kept it pretty simple and only added glitter under my eyes with the help of a few drops of sticky lipgloss. The second step is all about your personal preference – just apply skin clue on your tiny little stars and place them wear you want them to have. E voià – a new star child is born.

Remixing Fashion with Zalando

The high low style trend is probably the kind of style that became more and more popular over the last few years. It’s not only a way of keeping your wardrobe fresh for less it’s also a great way to get a little bit more creative when it comes to mixing high-end & high street pieces and proving that it is not about how much money one puts into an outfit!

Being a high-low dresser and mixing high-end designs with lower priced pieces is probably one of the best ways to create an interesting and relateable mix and match ensemble which actually shows the amount of style and chicness that comes from within. The key to high-low dressing is definitely splurging on items you can wear season after season – for example a designer bag that won’t go out of style, which is probably one of those pieces women love to invest in. But also a classic well-tailored blazer or coat works perfectly with low priced items that can elevate your whole look in a second.

So in order to welcome a new season – yes, spring is just around the corner - i’ve teamed up with Zalando to show you my personal high-low outfit that features a few items from their premium and streetwear section. The first piece i stumbled across was this amazing blue skirt by DKNY, which is actually a piece that you can wear on both sides but definitely acts as a true statement piece. So of course i intended to pair it with something a little bit more casual and opted for a classic black sweater from the streetwear section. To top things off i combined this look with this super comfortable but also affordable nude boots  from Topshop and this amazing bag also by DKNY which became my companion N°1 over the last few days!

How to transition from Winter to Spring | Statement Coat


Even though we are still dealing with cold temperatures it’s definitely time to start thinking about seasonal transitioning. If you are like me, you are itching to get out of those boring muted colors you’ve been wearing over the last few months – it’s definitely time for a pop of color in your life. But how to start dressing for spring without freezing to death in this still-wintery weather! The answer is definitley layering up with lighter pieces in order to be able to wear a  coat like this one which i found while i was browsing in the  'between seasons'-coat section of the online store about you. This much thinner and fashionable than a puffy one. Instead of choosing black i went for this coppery shade that spices up any look. I can also imagine wearing this oversized piece with mom jeans, a simple white tee and maybe some strappy sandals! Spring, i am ready for you!

Make your own Style Rules


I have to say that I’ve never been the girl who was only interested in one specific style since i always enjoyed being open about anything. From boho chic, to minimalism – i have tried it all. And that is what is it all about – experimenting and defining over time. The other day i looked back at the evolution of my style wich is a mix of everything. I went from girly vintages dresses to masculine looks. It’s super funny, especially when you documented everything and find looks you would never ever wear again – and who knows what i would say in 10 years from now. But one thing is for sure – a classic denim jeans will always be a staple you can wear for many years. Combined with stars and stripes, which adds a little bit more fun to the whole look, i was good to go when i headed to London last week.

New Look for Spring | Mini Skirt


If someone ask me what piece of clothing i rarley wear throughout the year than i would probably say mini skirts. Somehow i always felt way too girly whenever i tried to pull them off but over the last few months i felt the urge to jump back on the bandwagon and give it another try. The best way to do so is definitely whenever i’m traveling. Before i end up wearing my favorite pieces over and over again i often try to bring at least 3 pieces with me that i rarley wear. It’s probably one of the best way to force yourself to be a little bit more creative and at the same time you simply make sure to get more use of every pice you own. I have to say that i actually bought this skirt 3 with the intention to spice up my looks but since the temperatures dropped down back in december i obviously had to wait a little longer. Combined with a white tee i stealed from my mom’s closet, my favorite black cardigan and this colorful scarf i finally got the chance to wear this beautfiul A-lined black pleather skirt when i was visiting my parents in my hometown.

STYLE | Biker Coat

As much as i love wearing layers like there is no tomorrow i have to say that this winter was new challenge when it comes to staying warm but looking fashionable at the same time. Usually  i’m someone who loves to wear superlong coats and really gets excited when i’m finally having the chance to rock my favorite pieces but this year i found myself lusting over a different model – the biker coat! Ever since i got my hands on this beauty i truly ended up wearing it every day. What i absolutly love about it, is that it has a slighty masculine touch that can spice up any outfit. Combined with a blue skinny jeans and my new favorite shirt from Na-ked (look at those sleeves) i'm good to go.

What to wear: Ball Season

I guess a lot of you guys know that the first two months of the year  here in Vienna are pretty packed up with all kinds of balls you can imagine!One of the biggest question is definitely ‚What to wear’. I’ve teamed up with the Mariandl Shopping center in order to share with you my personal tips when it comes to getting ready for these kind of events! Attending a classic ball night is not only exciting but also a little bit nerve-wracking – which shouldn’t be the case when you follow a steps.

THE DRESS
Depending on the event you’re attending  you should definitely have to make sure to wear a dress that works for you. There are so many different options out there that it can be tricky to find the perfect gown that enhances your personal features. Personally i always love to get inspired when i’m not even sure what i’m actually looking for. In this case i can highly recommend Pinterest which allows you to create your personal board that helps you to define the search. Of course not everybody has the same bodytype – so in order to find the most flattering dress here is a quick overview (scroll down).

What to Wear: WinterWonderLand


Back in the game – and to be honest i couldn’t be happier. Originally i planned to take a little break from blogging and really focus on other things in order to get back fully motivated and energized. But oh boy – a really bad flu was waiting for me and a few days after New Years Eve i felt completly knocked. out. Usually i’m someone who’s super resistent when it comes to being sick but this time i had to deal with this super annoying situation for more than a week. But enough with all the negative stuff – it’s time to get back up and share with you my must have styles to get through winter. As you guys know i’m a big fan of layering but compared to summer, winter looks take a little bit more thought especially when the temperatures hit below zero degrees Celsius. So when you’re planning a trip to Winter Wonderland with the same condition i can highly recommend OVER-SIZED WOOLEN JUMPERS. They are so easy to throw on and look stylish at the same time. Since i’m not a big fan of fitted knit jumpers i’m happy that the men departments offer a bunch of loose options like this one. Another must-have when it comes to keeping me warm is definitely a cozy winter coat that allows you to wear at least 3 layers underneath. Instead of wearing antoher black one i opted for this DARK GREEN COAT that brings a little bit more color to my life. I’m beyond satisfied with the texture and look that i found myself wearing this beauty non stop. To top things off i went for my favorite black boots which i pimped with furry shoe insoles to keep my feet warm.
