Spring Wardrobe Update #1



Hello my beautiful readers,
today I have a "springy" post for you! The weather here has been more than nice for February. Normally this time around we would still be surrounded by snow but instead, we can enjoy warm sunrays while looking for colorful spring clothing.
As I have been shopping a lot online, preparing my wardrobe for spring – not that my closet really needs any more clothes, but you know, a girl can never have enough clothes! – I did come across some beautiful pieces I would like to share with you!

The It-piece: the pink coat
Everyone on bloggerland has been talking about a pink Topshop coat. I have found a great alternative for those who don´t have Topshop near them or don´t want to buy it online! Here´s the alternative from H&M.

 I´ve been looking for a colorful bag everywhere, because I know that it´s the perfect way to spice up a boring outfit. Mango has a great bag-range to choose from. This is the one I liked the most. 
 Who doesn´t love ballet flats? I already own a ton of them but still let some new ones join my collection for the warmer months. I have learned that if you spend a little more on your flats they will last you much longer! So I only buy cheap ones for my side job - as a cashier I don´t really need cute, fancy shoes, just comfy ones! These ones I found at Zara.
Spring = Blazertime! I might actually do a separate post on that subject because I love blazers a lot! Here I found this blue, patterned one from H&M.
Scarves are also a must have for spring. Not the thick, heavy ones of course! Silky, smooth scarves!
Here´s one from Mango for you pastel lovers (like me) outthere!
You might not know it but I also love dresses! When I was little I begged my mother to let me wear dresses everyday no matter how cold it was! I guess I was a 100% girly girl from day one! And of course I have already ordered 20 new ones from the new H&M spring collection! Here´s one I didn´t order yet, but I find awfully pretty!

So this was it! Wait for more updates to come, because I will be shopping for sure! Hope I gave you some shopping ideas from my favorite stores! 

See you soon!

Valentine´s Day for your ears.


Hello my beautiful readers!

You might not know, but I am a passionate music lover (and singer, but I don´t really do this that much anymore although I love it a lot!).
So today I´d love to show you my favourite songs for a romantic day in, or just for the lonely romantic hearts out there, who would love to sit in their bath tub with a glass of wine singing "be my baby" to their cats :) Have fun and happy Valentine´s Day!

All time favourite, oldie but goldie!
Nat King Cole L.O.V.E.


Be my baby? Oh yes! A cover by this very talented lady Marie Digby and Zee Avi, originally sung by The Ronettes.

Now to my sister´s (who wil be blogging on here with me in the future) suggestion. A song I guess everybody loves, by a woman everybody loves: Beyonce Knowles - dangerously in love.

A rather sad lovesong. My heart melts even thinking of this song: James Blunt - beautiful

My alltime favourite. Can I just say I love John Mayer? I love this man! His songs are so incredibly sweet and so damn sexy I can´t even find words to discribe how much I like them.
John Mayer - Your body is a wonderland:)

To mix it up a little my sister suggested Nelly and Kelly - Dilemma. Listening to this I remember little Lola crushing on this cute boy in the bus ( true story xD ).

Do I need to tell you Enrique Iglesias is lo más caliente chico en este mundo? (hey there spanish lessons, I remember you).
So if you don´t have a "hero" yet, here you go: Enrique wants to be your hero!

Taylor Swifties, are you there? Hope so! Although she spents more time writing about broken hearts and "mean" boys, she does have some songs that get you into this romantic, happy mood.
Taylor Swift - mine (how amazing is the video?) and starlight!

Again something old, but spiced up by Michael Bublé (ééé!). I know so cliché! But no romantic playlist is completed without this song. Michael Bublé - the way you look tonight (originally sung by Fred Astaire).

Another favourite of mine  is "Mirrors" by Justin Timberlake. But because I love the cover by Rachel Talbott and Keith Varon I thought I´d share this one with you too.

I had to force myself not to include this song because the post is already super long , but as you see it didn´t work! Jason Mraz (aka sexiest man alive - I just can´t choose one now can I? ) "butterfly". Listen to the lyrics you might just realise what kind of "butterfly" he talks about *wink*.

I hope you liked this post! Happy Valentine´s Day. And for you lonely hearts out there, think of this: Right now, there´s someone outthere, a person that will be your other half in the future. Isn´t it exciting knowing there´s someone outthere you don´t know yet but will get to know very well? He (or she) is definitely there! This made my waiting a little nicer back then, when I thought there was just noone left for me. Kristinia DeBarge - future love.
