Fashionably Green

Unless you have been living under a rock for the past few decades, you know as well as I do that living a greener life is not only healthy for you and the planet, but it’s stylish too. Besides the obvious choices like switching to LED lighting, walk when you can, etc. There’s one point me and my family are working on, recycling! Have a look around you and see what stuff you can make a massive change on in your day to day life!

Are you the type who buys bottled water, then why not filter at home and use a glass bottle instead? Do you often buy new toys for your kids? How about arranging with a group of friends to exchange or borrow toys from each other?

I’ve made a conscious decision to include my children in this new and exciting life change. There are so many clever ways to reuse and recycle our daily items. Our family uses straws a lot, so these stainless steel ones are not only planet and wildlife approved, but family approved as well. Last but not least, kids lunch boxes… Even the sturdiest of plastic lunch boxes break or crack, that’s why I got this rustic looking one. So my six year old daughter doesn’t really care whether her lunch box is rustically trendy, but she does love the three compartments and all the healthy food that goes into it. Win, win!

New Summer Wardrobe

New season calls for a new wardrobe! I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, shopping for little girls is so much fun! Summer calls for garden parties, picnics, birthdays, outdoor movie nights, pool parties and so much more. For the cherry on top, the perfect outfit and I got just that.

Sexy Must Haves For Summer

When I think of preparations for summer, there’s a few things that come to my mind. Sun kissed skin, beach hair, sunscreen, lace and floral summer dresses to mention a few. My absolute must have however is the perfect perfume. The perfect scent to me is soft, sexy and seductive.

My all-time favorite perfumes are, Forever & Ever Dior by Christian Dior and L’eau D’issey by Issey Miyake. These two are my signature scents for everything described above and more. If you are anything like me and like your scents not overpowering, slightly floral, fresh and sophisticated, then either one of these beauties will become a fast favorite for you too.

Outfit Of The Day

I’ve had a bunch on my to-do-list the last few days, but I believe I’m finally done! Now that I have a few hours to kill, I’m heading out with a friend for a coffee date. The sun is shining, it’s 20 something degrees outside and I’m done with a very long list of tasks… This calls for a mini celebration and I plan to do exactly that by dressing up. Check in later to see what I ordered on my Lazy Girl’s Shopping I’ll give you a hint, beauty products meet summer <3

Shades Of Blue Love

“Seek and you shall find”, or something like that… But I did indeed seek for a great birthday present and I did find! I have to say, buying gifts for girls is so much fun! The variety alone is amazing, maybe because 98% of all department stores are set up for female shoppers.

Anyways, on to my latest loves, blue shades edition. None of these are new, but somehow have been demoted from their ranks, because of newer items. Perhaps this should be called, “Oldies, But Goodies”. And with that, I suddenly have a great idea for a future post.

My blue Instax Mini has been such a fun new found love for capturing all those esthetic moments. The question now however is, what do I do with all these pictures lying around? Light Blue used to be the bottle I always would reach for on my vanity, basically my signature scent. Light, fresh and slightly floral. Delicious! And last, but not least, Mint Mojito by Covergirl. Perfect summer nail color to pair with sun kissed skin.

Bored Games

Alright so I know it’s not spelled that way, but that is what I like to call them, because I usually bring them out under extreme circumstances. It’s not often my girls get bored, but this heatwave we have going on right now has given everyone a severe case of cabin fever. When life gives you heatwave, you bake cookies and play board games, or something like that…
