Advent Advent

Unbelievable that yesterday was already the first Sunday of Advent!
Did you light the first Advent candle on your Advent wreath? 
Mine is not really a wreath this year but I love this puristic alternative a lot. 
This candle holder by Ib Laursen was a total bargain and you can put inside whatever you like 
to make it fit to your christmas decoration. I decided for some classic cones because 
I prefer decorating with natural materials just as cones, evergreens, tangerines and other branches.
 If you haven´t got an Advent wreath yet this is a great last minute bargain! 
You can get it here and also here in brass.
Enjoy Christmas time!

On my mind

Black friday in mind I´ve gathered the pieces which I´m currently coveting. 
I hope to get my hands on one or another with some attractive reductions tomorrow. 
New on my list is this beautiful but indeed unnecessary peacock sleep mask and these black lace up boots. 
Still looking for some classic black boots I came across this & Other Stories lace up version and 
liked them a lot as they are totally different to these ones I already have. 
Something I definitely need to get is the Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturizer. I had the chance
 to try it out recently and I can understand the hype of this product. It´s not really a bargain
 but maybe I´m lucky enough to find a good offer. Another kind of hyped product in my mind
 is the Emma Hardie Cleansing Balm and I want to try it out ever since I heard about it. 
Luckly they brought out a Christmas gift set, which is a really good deal even without Black Friday discount. 
For the other items I hope of some attractive reductions. What´s on your Black Friday wishlist?

Isabel Marant Étoile Spring/Summer 2016 Lookbook

It´s always so excited to see the next season lookbooks coming up,
 especially when the weather outside is the total contrary to the presented collection. 
I´m most excited about Isabel Marants latest one, which is rather a piece of art than a simple lookbook,
 in my opinion. Photographed by image maker Michael Baumgarten by using 3D technique 
in collaboration with interior stylist Anna Burns and Stylist Jack Borkett. 
The result: Model Hayett Belarbi McCarthy presents Isabel Marant classics like striped jumpers and
 lace dresses on a wild playground of strange and unexpected arranged objects. 
I can´t stop looking at it again and again. What about you?

Sunday Essentials

When I was younger I could not understand why my parents loved Sundays so much. 
I always thought it was the most boring day of the week because noone was up to do anything special on a Sunday. Especially those of you who grew up in a small village like me, may understand what I mean. 
With my 23 years now Sundays become equally sacred to me and I enjoy every minute to the fullest 
when I´m not forced to do anything special but relaxe and recover. 
Sometimes that means I go for a delicious breakfast with my friends, stroll across a flea market 
on a sunny day or stay on my couch the whole day long like I did today, fully equipped with my new book, 
my favourite face mask and some yummy chocolate. 
Sundays were created to reload your batteries, whatever that means for you!
