Oslo – The Norwegian capital with 27 degrees, my friends and I walked around the empty city asking ourselves where everyone was! In the end we found out that they were lying on the beach and soaking up the sun, it was so weird and funny to have sun almost 24 hrs a day in summer but during winter is totally the opposite. It was an amazing experience to visit oslo! Besides its clear sky and beautiful views, Oslo is […]

27 degrees in London!!! wohooooooo \o/ Time to be transparent! The spring/summer 2014 trend definitely helps you to show the transparency of your soul as well as giving a sexy touch in your outfit. After Alexander Wang launched his Advisory campaign many designers felt inspired by the transparency trend… mixing transparent fabrics in their ss14 collections. I fell in love with this white long sleeves top from ZARA that matches with my Mango jeans and my favourite Top shop shoes.

Pradamark: The mix and match designers items and cheap essentials! Sometimes we see people on the street with outfits that look like thousand pounds! Do they really wear expensive brands in everything they have on? Not really!! The Pradamark effect is new tendency since fast fashion took up part of our wardrobes. Mixing the basics (such as a black skirt, top or leggings that are easy to match with everything) with  some nice shoes or […]
