Don’t you trust me?

It was a relaxed girls-night with one of my closest friends, the kind that I used to call “Sis” all the time when we were teenagers, you know what kind of friend I mean 😉 So as we were talking about classic girls stuff like the newest fashion trends, beauty tips and gossip, we started conversing about a brand that I had recently worked with when she asked me: “Did you actually like the things you promoted or did you just pretend to for the sake of the cooperation?”

Here’s how you will nail the dress over pants Trend

My favorite kind of trend is definately one that makes you wear summer clothes even when it’s not that warm yet – a trend for all those impatient ones among us 😉 A classic example in this case would be the combo dress over pants. It feels like this trend already stays with me since fifth grade in school (you know, with those asian inspired satin dresses) and that might be the reason I find it so difficult to wear and style the trend without looking outdated or trashy. Reason enough to write down some tips to solve this issue: How to rock a dress over pants outfit in spring 2017…

MoMo #77 – How to abandon self criticism and become your own biggest fan

Every time I’ve had a rough week, I notice a certain behaviour of mine that I always fall into. I criticize myself, nothing that I am doing seems to be good enough in those situations and I generally feel like I can’t do anything (right). This feeling should be familiar to a lot of you, as according to studies, women show this behavior on average 8 times a day. And even though this criticism towards ourselves only leads to even more frustration, it sems so hard to shut this negativ inner voice down. So what is there to do in order to abandon self-criticism and become our own biggest fans?

About military jackets and a more careless me

Walking around in a military blazer like this in public almost certainly makes some people think you are wearing a costume. That is exactly what happened when we were shooting this outfit. As we were looking for a good spot to shoot in, I couldn’t help but imagine how many passers-by must at least think: hm, this is interesting! I was even more surprised to find out something else while we were shooting though.

4 Blogger Clichés I’m guilty of

This post definitely puts me in the category of “when your second name is Cliché“. In fact those pretty cherry-blossom flowers we chose as today’s backdrop can be seen in thousands all over Instagram those last days: #BloggerCliché! And this amusing abundance has directly inspired me for today’s post: 4 blogger clichés or alternatively “how much a blogger are you“? Beware of irony 😉

Trend Watch: Jane Birkin Basket

May I introduce? The only bag you need this summer: a woven basket! This trend was brought to life by no other than the actress Jane Birkin in the 70ies and revived this spring as what you might call a Street Style phenomenon. I’ve browsed literally every online shop to find the best baskets and straw bags for you (and me 😉 ) to come up with a list including everything from low price to high fashion and even a version from our favorite Swedish furniture retailer…

MoMo #76 How to spring clean your mind

Last weekend officially marked the beginning of spring to me: for this year’s first time I ate outside, fulfilled the blogger’s cliché of a picture in front of cherry blossom tree and – rather stereotypical – thouroughly cleaned the flat. And while I was getting rid of clothes and a lot of other stuff, I couldn’t help but notice that one area is spring cleaned up way too seldomly – our mind!
