Real vs Steal

sure, no doubt. the steal can never replace the real, but when it comes this close it definitely is an acceptable option for all of us with a low budget.
and when it comes to trend pieces like a baby pink backpack, the steal sometimes may be the better choice.

sure, what makes a mansur gavriel bag so special is the perfect leather, but this topshop copy is a good option, as it is a real leather bag for just a fraction of the cost.

the price for the mansur gavriel backpack is 700 € (950 $). topshops version is on sale right now and costs 40 € (down from 105 €).

a pink backpack is not on my wishlist, to be honest not at all...but i think it's a beautiful bag and i wanted to share this awesome find with you! didn't do a real vs steal in a long time, but this one was definitely worth to revive this category.

Layered Breakfast

i love layering, not just in fashion, but also when it comes to food, and especially breakfast! there are just too many good things, so sometimes i decide to have a little bit of everything.

this one is just one option, there are so many others. just be creative!

here are the layers in detail (from bottom to top):

  • plain yoghurt
  • pureed raspberries and strawberries
  • rolled oats
  • mashed banana
  • chia pudding (chia seeds soaked over night in vanilla soy milk)
  • chopped strawberries, passion fruit and some coconut chips
it's easily made, healthy and super yummy! give it a try and tell me your favorite combinations!

Slide On Baby

slides - i guess the biggest and comfiest trend this summer!

love these black cross slides from h&m, perfect for a relaxed summer look!

Easy Peasy DIY

easiest way to customize your stuff? just get some marble, metallic or wood foil and stick it all over!

i love the modern touch my notebook got with this marble accent. and how gorgeous is the phone case? i got it from a euro shop and love it after i diyed it!

you can particulary stick it on anything. i wrapped an old shoe box, a vase and even a frame. you could even wrap a table (saw that on pinterest).

Sale Love

i must admit, i love sale! i think i bought 70% of my wardrobe during sale, especially zara sale.
years ago i bought whatever i liked and that didn't punish my wallet, nowadays i think i understand who i am and what suits me. before i buy something i consider if it fits the style i have and that i try to embrace. 

there is this one question i always ask myself before i buy anything on sale. 'would i pay the full price for this item?' if i wouldn't i leave it right there at the shop! 

why buy something i wouldn't even consider for a few euros more? i guess this just shows i don't really like the piece and it's just the price tag that attracts me. 
i only want to buy things that have the potential to become a favorite! i want to love what i wear, i don't just want to buy for the sake of making bargains and having tons of clothes. 

but these zara heels are just perfect! they suit almost everything and are really comfortable. they're real leather and i scored them for 39,90 euro (original price was 89,90 Euro). i left the shop with a huge smile on my face!

the bag is from mango and was on sale too. i got it for my birthday and love it! next to an olive colored shopper this is one of my two not black bags. i just have a weakness for black bags!

certainly i have some other sale finds and i guess you'll see the one or the other item on this blog the next time!

what are your sale finds? do you love sale time as much as i do?
