I am pretty sure we all went through spring ‘syndrome’ already, when all you want is to look nice. When you want to get out and enjoy the weather and feel beautiful by feeling the spring in the air. Winter wardrobe, that is something you don’t even want to look at, and you are rushing to pack it away as soon as you have time for it. However, this time of the year often can be quite tricky and some unexpected weather changes might not be very satisfying. So, what to do when the temperature goes down and reminds us more of the winter weather, even though it is still spring? That is quite irritating because very often we don’t know what to wear… Well, I would suggest go for something warm, but fresh! Something that will keep you cozy and comfy but still very summerish. A light bomber jacket, or pastel trench coat could create a lighter and more outgoing style. You could also add layers and mix some different spring prints, for making it even more eye catching. And don’t forget sunglasses, even though it is cold outside, you need to protect your beautiful eyes and complete your stylish look!

It’s about time to take out some summery white pieces from our wardrobe. Most of us, would switch everyday blue denim look into white during this time of the year. These days, when we look at a crazy street style and all fashionistas, there are almost no excuses for not owning a pair of white jeans in the closet, since there are no rules anymore on how to wear it. I would call it a classic item, that we should have in our collection. The ones I have on are actually quite old and I never get tired of it. Anyways, some would say that styling can be a bit tricky, since you need to be careful with mixing right colors. White on white? Pastels with white? Not necessarily, make a contrast.. Go for dark or black, and combine it with some accessories if you feel like. If you are afraid of too girly look, make it a bit edgy by wearing a pair of masculine boots or belt. Play with your style and have fun!
Hello Monday! To begin the new week I wanted to share this amazing recipe that I tried out in the weekend. This might look like a guilty pleasure, but that is the healthiest home made vegan chocolate you can find on earth, containing only three main ingredients. And oh my god it is so good! I am not going into details and the benefits of each ingredient I used, but I can tell you, this is no sugar and dairy free snack or dessert. So you don’t need to worry about upcoming bikini season.
1/2 cup liquid coconut oil
1/2 raw cacao
4 table spoons of maple syrup
Just mix all three ingredients, and use your fantasy if you want to add some nuts, dry fruits, berries or whatever you have. I added some almonds, dry raspberries and goji berries. Put it into baking pan (with baking paper), and freeze for about 30-40 min. Cut it into small pieces and you have it. Enjoy!
You know I absolutely love wearing black, and that is not the color most of us would go for, when the sun is calling outside. Well, there are no rules in fashion so why to avoid black during spring. The most important thing is how you feel inside and what makes you comfy, and remember any piece of clothing will look adorable on the shining soul.. Just be happy and you will glam like a star girl! Anyways, to make your ‘black’ outfit look more interesting, you can choose playing with fabrics, just make sure they differ in textile composition. Check your wardrobe, and I am sure you will find many different garments in the same black color. My leather jacket is my favourite item for spring and I don’t even need to think too much what I have to wear, it matches with anything. That’s my statement piece for sure, and it is perfect for this season or chilly summer days. Don’t forget accessories as well, since small details can make a big difference. A pair of cool sunglasses could be perfect choice. But if you have your own favourite statement items, go for it, as I already said.. the most important thing is how you feel inside! Wish you a lovely day my dear ladies, enjoy spring!

When we feel the spirit of spring most of us want to go for more colorful and of course light pieces. If you love long jackets, go for a colorful one, and you going to make a statement this season. Long silhouette jackets were on the trends for the last few years, however most of it in very neutral colors. I was looking for the perfect one in the vintage stores for a long time, every time ending with size issue. So, I am quite surprised that this spring you can find so many colorful pieces in the stores. The one, I am wearing matches perfectly with my new vintage belt, which I love love love…! Found it in the second hand store couple of days ago for ‘no money’. Because of its cute and colorful badge goes well with everything. Unique items always makes me happy, going for a hunt very soon since my vintage shopping list is growing..

In todays world most of us are more concerned about the environment, our health and surrounding. Society and media are the biggest influencers of our behavior. Healthy way of living becomes not only a trend but a lifestyle. Looking trough the history, ages by ages the world is becoming more clever. We are all familiar with organic or natural foods, and that became a normal buying procedure depending on our choices. But what about the materials, the equipment we use, the clothes that we wear? Is that something we seriously consider when we do shopping?
Progressive silicone technology is becoming our future and the material is already used on fashion textiles. Going back to my Paris trip, I am happy I was bale to meet a high fashion textile engineer and designer Tzuri Gueta, who has found a great proportion between art and science. Getting familiar with the brand, gave a clear picture that technology and unusual materials can be combined into beautiful fashion pieces. After successful introduction of his ideas, silicone became Gueta’s signature material. The designer creates beautiful hand made jewelry and home decoration accessories by using technique of blowing silicone material into lace. The brand collaborates with Parisian Haute Couture houses in order to design original textiles, jewelry and ornaments. High fashion brands such as Chanel, Givenchy, Jean-Paul Gaultier, Dior Clarisse Hieraix, Stephane Rolland and Yiquing Yin are the main collaborators of the company.
I am absolutely in love with his accessories, so if you are visiting Paris soon, you should definitely go and check their cozy shop.
When the spring is just around the corner, and you try to cut sugar as much as you can, let me give you an advice and share this delicious recipe. Specially if you are chocolate addicted, you gonna love it! I am that kind of person that could eat sweet things for breakfast, lunch or dinner. Pancakes, cookies, cakes, chocolate whatever… I am sugar addicted that’s for sure. But how to deal with that kind of issue knowing that this little white ‘poison’ is not good for your health and of course for your weight loss. Let me share with you this yummy, organic, vegan chocolate spread recipe, where I used only healthy ingredients. It is super simple and for proportions you can just use any size cup. So to start with, you will need to decide what kind of nuts you like. I went for almonds this time (hazelnuts are good as well). Thus: 1 cup of almonds, 1/3 cup maple syrup, 1/4 cup raw cacao, 1/4 cup water, 2 table spoons of pure coconut oil, pinch of salt. After you have all ingredients, you just use a hand blender, which gonna take some time, but after all, trust me you gonna love it! Perfect for breakfast or as midnight snack.
Sometimes, routine and crazy lifestyle these days can empty our brains without even realising it. For me, life is not just the matter of eating, sleeping, going to work or whatever. I just realised that I cannot remember when was the last time I red a nice book, or let my brain to relax. And this is not good, that just kills my creativity and I believe most of us would feel the same way. So, what to do when you feel like you are stuck and cannot even dream. Well, go to Paris! That’s right… if you have a creative mind, you will ‘blossom’ like a flower again, of just seeing all the beautiful museums, architecture and people, I mean stylish people. That is just a big source of inspiration! I am currently on trend forecasting trip in Paris, and enjoying every single minute of it. It just makes me happy, feel creative and I am taking a full luggage of new ideas with me.
And if you are not into architecture or art, there are so many other things to enjoy. Just getting the spirit of Parisian life style is always nice. And let me tell you, the food, the wine and french pastries are on top. My gym shoes are already waiting for me when I am back in Copenhagen.
The city is the best place to shop and I personally love to search for a small vintage shops, so I know I can get some very unique pieces with a smell of Paris. And that is the best thing to do if you want to run away from tourists and enjoy small but beautiful things.
Turn your old loafers into new, just by adding some simple details. You can choose any accessories, from fur pieces, lace ribbon or velvet. Just use your imagination and be creative. The only tool I used for this project was a glue gun, but maybe you can just use some clips in case you want to play with different accessories. That was the most easy and fast DIY project I have ever made, so if you like it go for it!
