Family holidays

4 Dec

2080c8c261970badad2b9301b4d02e7bChristmas means family gatherings and let’s face it: as much as we love our families, they could be difficult sometimes (to say the least). Coping with family stress is one of the most usual problems during the holiday season, so why not go on a little Christmas adventure? A different environment may help and, well, if you have an argument with your mother/ father/ aunt/ cousin/ brother, you can always go for a walk afterwards and discover a new place!

DIY Christmas Cards

3 Dec

christmas_cards_2014_10It’s that time of the year again: Christmas card DIY!!! Last year you really liked our Christmas cards so we thought: why not share again the easiest DIY ever? I’m not particularly crafty. In fact, I’m quite clumsy but every year, one afternoon at the end of November, I play Christmas carols and make our Christmas cards. I’d say that’s one of my favorite moments of the year. It’s not a secret: I love Christmas! And this is the only time of the year when I feel like using washi tape and that makes me feel connected with the world. Seriously, what other use can you give to washi tape?

Charlotte Tilbury or the art of selling

2 Dec

Charlotte_Tilbury_1Do you remember that yesterday we told you we looked for shelter in Selfridges? Well, it wasn’t pure chance… I may have fooled P. to come with me to the Charlotte Tilbury corner. I just wanted to have a look, you know, just for fun… And then this happened. Continue reading

November favorites

1 Dec

November_Favorites_1November is usually a silly month for us. After an October full of birthdays and just before the Christmas madness, November just sits there, in the middle, with no expectations. It has been a bittersweet month but we’ve tried to make the most of it. We’ve travelled, we’ve drunk an unexpectedly high amount of cups of tea (hence the first picture) and we’ve worked a lot.

mmm… Monday! Le Chalet, London

1 Dec

Le_Chalet_London_15Every year we try to visit London just before Christmas. It’s the perfect start to the holiday season and  it makes us happy: those bright lights, all that frenzy shopping, the hundreds of people in a specially good mood… and the food. Of course. On a very cold Friday we looked for shelter in, ehem, Selfridges, and had the most festive lunch at Le Chalet, the Winter rooftop restaurant. If that corridor doesn’t put you in a Christmas mood, I don’t know what will.

Weekend style icons: Marie

28 Nov

IMG_4912Another Friday, another weekend style icon. This week we introduce you to Marie, a beautiful Parisienne that shows a modern approach to the classic French allure.  And her haircut is the epitome of cool. That’s always very important. And for that reason we envy her very much. And she has two kids and she looks like this. What’s with the Parisian mums? Do you remember last week’s post?

A new side of London

27 Nov

Southwark_London_4We knew the Thames. Who doesn’t? You go to London, you see the Thames. You pay no attention, though. There’s so much to see that the river just goes unnoticed. But last weekend we really experienced a new perspective of London where the river was the absolute focus. From Canada Water to Tower Bridge, we saw the Thames full of life, yet really quiet. Boats that sailed extremely fast mixed with slow river cruises. The cartoon-like skyscrapers of the City and the almost arrogant majesty of Tower bridge. The bustle and stillness that in a few minutes make the Thames look extremely different. Continue reading

We need this! Imperial dresses

26 Nov

Imperial_Dresses3A couple of weeks ago we were strolling around Viertel, the cool area of Bremen, when we decided to have a look in one of the shops. We usually don’t go shopping in this neighbourhood because everything is so indie and cool that we just don’t feel comfortable. But! You never know what you are going to find, huh? And we did find something we like! We discovered Imperial, an Italian brand that has a bunch of beautiful dresses for the party season. The best thing is that they have a nice little number for every kind of woman:

1. The minimalistic scandi design lover will love this trapeze dress: muted pastel colours, subtle silver shimmer and a very simple cut.

2. The boho girl can find her perfect outfit mixing this long lace dress with a faux fur jacket and a pair of embellished boots.

3. Do you like retro vibes? Look no further! This beautiful black dress will look espectacular on you. Add a pair of black pumps, Veronica Lake hair and a touch of red lipstick and you will be the queen of New Year’s Eve.

4. For the sweet girls out there (or those who want to look sweet and girly) this skater dress is perfect. Besides, the waist cut and full skirt are really flattering.

Not your cup of tea? Well, maybe you like this white embellished dress, this flower print Dolce & Gabanna clearly inspired dress or this dramatic black stravaganza.
