Two destinations for Christmas - Barcelona and Stuttgart! I started the Christmas season with a quick escape to Barcelona, for me, the best way to enjoy the sun in a short weekend. I love drinking mojitos in my t-shirt while it's freezing at home.
It's time for Christmas! I can't wait to spend the weekend with my family and with my love. I will celebrate a second time on January 7th for the Orthodox Christmas (Russian culture). But first, looking forward to part one!
We like to dress up for the end of the year, right? Christmas parties at work, dinners at home, New Year's Eve as the big highlight.. In between we have a party in Luxembourg called Zürcher Bal, yearly organised by Luxembourgish students of Zürich, held right after Christmas!
Last weekend I've been in Antwerpen, Belgium. I visited the city, discovered an unusual B&B and went to the #ZalandoStyleIcons awards with my blogger friend Yolisa. I captured my whole adventure with one camera, my new Fujifilm X-Pro 2, a mirrorless, compact beauty I've purchased last month.
BLOOM. I discovered the place more than a week ago when it was still closed. There was someone inside so I knocked on the door and gave my business card to the guy asking, him to call me when they're opening.
Just back from my second home, Brussels, where I spent the weekend. This weekend was all about fashion. I made some shopping, discovered new shops and attended the Brussels Fashion Days 2016. I've been to this event two years ago already (BFD2014).
Autumn. A weird period - not hot, not cold outside but pretty leaves on the ground and beautiful sunsets. Time for dresses with long sleeves, light coats, shirts and leggings. Let me introduce you three looks featuring currents trends for different occasions..! One more formal, one more casual and the last one, dressy. xx
10 beautiful days in Mauritius with bae. It was not the big season so the hotel was not overcrowded (perfect for us). The weather was wonderful, it was hot outside! We had two afternoons during our stay which were cloudy but most of the time the sun was shining.
Rock-a-Field is one my favourite events in Luxembourg. I'm always excited to be here and document this Summer party. This year, I couldn't come on Saturday because of a wedding but on Sunday (yesterday), I gave 100%. I didn't know any of the bands that were playing so I was curious to discover new music and I left really satisfied. My favourite bands of the year have been...
Some new thoughts about fashion... #SpringSummer2016
I love Luxembourg, it will always have a weather surprise for you. One day there will be sun, then a week full of rain, you never know what will come next - so exciting!!! Well.. for the moment it seems to be fine and my mood is great too. I enjoy my really cool internship, wait for the diploma ceremony in Winter (byebye student life forever) and shoot beautiful moments as much as I can in my spare time here. Today's look is ready for the next terrace like Boos beach club in Bridel (which has been renovated by the way, and it looks amazing!).
Ibiza is calling and I must go. Our first holidays where we enjoyed party, island exploration and chill-out days during one week. My favourite holidays so far because I saw different amazing places, had a good sunbath with nice mojitos and met great people. Everywhere we (the girl trio) went, we had fun, during any part of the day or night. I really recommend Ibiza for young people. Rent a car, go to several beaches, visit villages and cities, make new friends..
Some beautiful days at my third home - North Sea in Belgium. I used to go to Wenduine and De Haan once or twice a year when I was a child. Both villages are very cute, quiet and peaceful. The weather was perfect. The food delicious. The bicycle tours were fun too. Awesome sunsets. I expected windy days and cool nights but here, day and night were hot like I never saw it here in Spring before. Enjoy this little photo story almost entirely taken with an iphone for once.
This month I made two very cute and fresh discoveries, both in pastel tones and very Spring welcoming.
First, I want to introduce you the new Njörd cafeteria in Luxembourg City, located in the MNHA museum. The Scandinavian looking place offers all kinds of drinks and healthy ready to go lunch menus. The interior is so pretty.. pure, minimal design. I love the clean wooden furniture, the lamps and the big windows that offer great natural light, the plants, everything. And the service is good too. Very gentle and polite guys will serve you. Here some visuals.
I don't know how about you, but I cannot wait for Summer. My planner is full of wonderful work and sunny breaks. But for the moment I do internships and write my master thesis at the same time. Black, basic casual look and white sneakers - in my opinion perfect for this period of shitty Spring weather and my daily jobs. Let's enjoy the last days of March. Kisses!
Barcelona is like another home for me as I visit the City quite often with my girls. Even a short weekend is totally worth it. What we do over here? Eat tapas, drink mojitos, walk, sunbath, shop, have a good time. Well if you are like me, you will also (almost) break your nose, lose something and still be happy during the whole time over here. Check out my Barcelona City Guide I did last year for a complete list of my favourite spots!
