wear your greens

It's so tricky to wear green color sometimes. But fortunately the fashion world has right now some really cool shades out there, think teal, green water/forest and khaki (this could be a great debate, because half of my friends say that khaki is green and the other one - brown). And the green ensemble in this post kinda eats on each other because they're all different greens. Though, it may just work fine. Not perfect, fine. 
I'm wearing my favourite heels, that I've actually worn only twice since buying them some years ago. They're comfy, they're stable and they're classic. Yes, they're not summer heels but since the summer lasts just a couple of months and the colder weather is creeping from every corner it's nice to have a pair of heels that won't let your feet freeze. Plus, this was an enormous bargain and not even from a second-hand but a regular shoe shop somewhere in Italy, too bad I don't know the name of it. So, here you go, my green on green on green on simple brown trousers.

simple monochrome

If you follow me on Instagram (if you don't, then do! haha), then you've seen the first photo already and know that I've been feeling under the weather for a couple of days and haven't posted anything decent. Until now. Today was the first day of my second uni semester. I have mixed feelings. But then again, I have mixed feelings about everything. However, I rewarded myself with my beautiful Wrangler sandals because they're perfect and I can't wait to wear them (sun, where ya at?).

But in this post I'm showing just a few pictures my boyfriend took of me just because, why not. I love this shirt and I love what I've done to my hair. That is, instead of retouching my roots blonde (until now I've used L'Oreal nr. 10, 10.1 or 9 in worst case), I went for it and did them in dark blonde (nr.7) which is quite a difference, even my grandma noticed via Skype. Ok, but about hair some other time. This is not an outfit post, this is just a post with my face, my nr.7 roots and my favourite shirt. Enjoy.


And if I could, I would stack my whole wardrobe with Mango's blouses and shirts. The prints are always fun but not overwhelming and the cuts flatter, I think, every possible upper-body type. They are my go-to for spring picks, it's the perfect season to rock a shirt!

The Liebster Award

Wow, somebody actually aknowledges my blog's existence other than my boyfriend! Ok, I'm kidding, but for sure this was a surprise to be nominated from two very lovely bloggers - Foxtrot Beauty Spot and cuddlepill for the Liebster Awards, an interactive and fun way to get to know other new bloggers and get your own name out there!

I will answer all the questions, but two of them are the same so I will just blend them together! 

And as we're getting to know each other I have to admit one thing - I love answering questions and being interviewed, of sorts. I don't know why, but I just do. (insert an emoji with the monkey covering it's eyes)



And this is how it works:
Link back and thank the person who nominated you.
List 11 facts about yourself. (this I got only from cuddlepill and I will do these too, this is so fun!)
Answer the 11 questions given to you by the person who nominated you.
Nominate 11 blogs/bloggers who have 200 followers or less and give them 11 questions of your choice.

5 things your mum was right about shopping...

...and your wardrobe and shopping choices!

As you may notice, my blog's appearance has been freshend  up a bit because of following reasons:
1. it's  spring, 2. I wanted it to look "cleaner" and "fresher", if you know what I mean, and 3. because I found this amazing free template through Bloglovin' thanks to her and her, so thank you blogger communities for being so awesome!

And with a fresh breeze of bloggin air, I've decided to introduce also other kinds of posts on my blog to keep it more fun! So this time, I'm listing 5 things that your mum (talking from experience with my dear momma) did know better than you about clothes, even if you didn't or don't want to believe her. I've learned it the hard way but at least I did learn it eventually. :)

from Ladurée with Love


Has this photo got your attention? Good :) 
As I'm still trying to figure out in which particular way my blogposts should go, I'll keep posting whatever I feel like sharing. Like it was with Angelina's post, #GleeGoodbye, my inspo posts and now I'm sharing a food inspired post about the oh-so-mainstream-but-who-cares beauty that is macaroons. 
Having tried out many different places, Ladurée remains my favourite. But maybe I just haven't met the right one ;) And I count myself lucky to live just an hour of car ride away from Luxembourg City where I can get them! And the shop is the most prettiest, luxurious little place with great service (when it's crowded, there's a doorman who opens the doors for you -insert emoji with hearts instead of eyes-) and selection of macaroons, summer and winter specials, cakes and souvenirs. All that magic in one little corner.
And speaking about magic - Ladurèe is also very active collaborating with different celebrities, designers, pro's all in all. And this beautiful bag and box are designed by Emilio Pucci. The colorful patterns and feminine touch are kind of the signature of the designer. And, gosh, that looks incredible! And even better, I got to fill that cute box full with macaroons, with my all-time favourite pistachio and others. 
So almost after violently eating all the macaroons with my bf, I had to take the camera and try to snap some photos of this beauty of creation.
