On the last image below I got to try this Balenciaga jacket, which has been on my wish list like forever (and with a price tag of 1500 will remain on it for about...ever). But anyway, Balenciaga dressed or not, I like the simple white tee/ skinny trousers/ biker jackets look...add a piece of fur or a chunky belt and it's so meee right now!
I'm in a festive baking mood at the moment. I decided to experiment and whisk over some coconut macaroons. All you need is 3 eggs whites, ground almonds, shredded unsweetened coconut and a bit of chia seeds and to make it stick together. Mix everything together, put some coconut oil over a baking paper and put in a preheated oven for no more that 45 min. It makes a nutritious and delicious breakfast!
Tim Walker is undeniably one of the most famous living fashion photographers. Somewhere among the pages of Vogue, surrounded by a giant doll and a crashed airplane, I found myself in the enchanting world of the artist. The exhibition space at Somerset House recreates some of Walker’s most iconic images, which have graced the pages of Vogue throughout the years.The line between real and magical is so thin it leaves you wondering what has been photoshoped and what now. Dive into the surreal world of the photographer and explore the broad limits of his imaginations. Behind every image there is a story and behind the story there is the unique skill to recreate it and capture it.
Having done Literature at uni I know the value of a good book. However, sometimes there is more you need than good writing – good advice and affirmations….
I often visit the Kora Organics Blog as it is full of useful information about nutrition, well-being and environmental protection. It offers delicious healthy recipes and more topics, which inspire me to be more conscious of myself and my health. From there I came across Miranda Kerr’s book about cherishing yourself and letting your true personality shine. A lingerie supermodel/ book writer does not really bring to mind a real life coach. However, there are these exeptions and I she is one of them. The book is based on her life experience, a compilation of positive affirmations and tips on how to stay grounded and true to yourself. My initial skepticism was erased by her natural way of narrating her early modeling days full of rejection, which would then lead to insecurity and lack of faith in herself. Advice on how to be grateful, appreciative and present serve as assurance to all the insecure girls out there (to whom the book is mainly addressed) that everyone once and again faces their inner fears and worries…the hardest part is admitting them. Someone once said to me – we cry not because we are weak.
We cry because we have been strong for too long. Being harsh towards ourselves only suppreses our emotions and dims the light, which is only waiting to shine bright from within us (Shine Like a Diamond…)With a more positive and self-loving approach nothing is as bad or scary. Love and faith could change the world, your world. It all starts from the inside!
Here is some weekend inspiration! I'm off to a spa weekend with my VB girls...some pre-Christmas detox accompanied by relaxing treatments and the best cure for winter blues - lots of giggle and Christmas movies..
