Product Review: Ted Baker sunglasses

What is it ‘they’ say? That nice sunglasses are lost in a second and you can never get rid of that emergency cheapo pair you purchased on the beach 8 years ago. In many cases, this saying proves absolutely true. But…knock on wood…This fantastic pair of Ted Baker shades have lasted me two whole summers…

It’s here!

I had to share this with you 🙂 I purchased this hand-woven rug during a trip to Morocco. It isn’t huge, because they were so expensive…more than I had on me, for sure! But the handicraft is beautiful, and since I limit myself to ONE purchase in each country, per trip (I’m not a souvenir ladened…

Does my choice to wear natural fabrics, really dictate my fashion options?

…Sometimes, it really seems that way. I am frustrated. I spent a large portion of my day doing some Christmas shopping online. Take, Zalando, for example. A website that is full of designer labels, clothing and accessories for the entire family. I scrolled and scrolled through for hours today. Literally, hours. Every time I found…

Feeling Fashionable: my #ootd

Today, I feel pretty good about my #ootd so I felt like sharing with you. The great thing about autumn is that one can wear her suede over the knee boots and a nice cashmere sweater to dress up her favorite skinny jeans and look and feel great! Sorry, I hate taking selfies and they…

A Word About Sustainable Fashion

Good day, everyone 🙂 Thanks for stopping by! Today I’d like to discuss a topic which is becoming more and more of a priority for not only myself, but also for many fashion forward men and women. The words of the day are ‘sustainable’, ‘eco’, ‘fair trade’, ‘organic’ and ‘natural fibers’. The reason I would…

Fashion Fix: Rachel Zoe

I must admit that I initially thought that some of Rachel Zoe’s line was a little – eccentric – when it first hit the stores. Sequined knit winter hats, gloves and the like didn’t exactly seem like something I could use in -30 temps. I wasn’t exactly sure who this new celebrity stylist was that…

All work and no play makes Mliae a dull girl…

Sometimes, after a super long day, a girl just needs to unwind. I found myself sitting alone, on the upper restaurant deck of the commuter train. The late evening sunset was gorgeous, and I could finally sink back into my leather seat and take a long deep breathe. The day had consisted of meetings, marketing…

A word about centerpieces

Although we still haven’t fully decided if the reception will be outdoors or indoors, we still need to look at how to make our reception not look like a luncheon meeting, but a wedding. Looking through all the ideas for glamming up a wedding reception, I’ve come to realize that its absolutely ridiculous what people…

Wedding Dress Shopping!

This is me. Trying on the first wedding dress that I really liked. It’s still in the running 😉 It was a quite surreal experience, I must admit. I never really pictured myself as a BRIDE. I’m not the woman who has dreamed and planned my dream wedding since I was a little girl. Nor…

Product Review: Yves Saint Laurent Forever Youth Liberator -Eyes

I am finding myself to be rather partial to this product. Granted, it is a bit of an investment, but as a lady in her late 30’s, I can easily tell you that an investment into skincare is a solid investment indeed! Similar to the Clarins eye cream that I loved, the difference seems to…

Product review: CHANEL concealer in #10 beige clair

I will start by saying that this product is worth every cent spent on it. I’ve been searching for a concealer that can give me full coverage without looking like I’m wearing a mask of make-up, and I think this might be the one. I have been using MAC on a semi-religious basis for years….
