The Turtleneck

autumn is here and it brought one trend back i waited for all summer - the turtleneck!
with hairs plugged in and neutral colors this look is just right up my street. heavy knits or smooth cashmere, i don't care as long as it is cozy and keeps me warm!

imPRESS Press-On Manicure

due to work and life blogging came a little short lately, but this little beauty innovation i discovered is definitly worth a blogpost. i'm talking about the imPRESS press-on manicure.

when i was a teenager in the late 90s i experimented with glue on nails, and though i liked the look then, the outcome was never satisfying. the liquid glue was a challenge to handle, the outcome not very pretty and it caused a unpleasant pressure on my fingertips.

but this press-on manicure is a true game changer! it's far from the usual glue-on nails, as its name is press-on manicure - not press-on nails. they are way thinner, have  an adhesive foil and are super easy to apply - and the best: they are removed in a second without damaging your nails.
you have 24 covers in different sizes in one bottle. just choose the right ones for each finger, clean your nails with the attached wipe, remove the thin plastic that protects the adhesive foil and press them on - finished!

they last up to a week, but during that time you maybe should take a little time out from cleaning your windows and such things^^ they hold quite firm, but definitely don't take every challenge.

they are a big thing in the us and just made their way to germany. they have pretty colors and nice designs and even different length. if you take some time and a nail file you easily can change the shape and shorten them.

so all in all they are a nice and fun way for a super easy and quick manicure!

the color on my nails is called 'so, so stellar' and is a pretty nude with a pinkish undertone. 
The colors on the first picture are: 'so, so stellar', 'kiss & tell', 'so, so stellar', 'ex on the beach', 'stiletto' and 'casting call'

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!
