Good morning everyone
(post contains affiliate links/Werbung/Beitrag enthält Affiliate Links/Markennennung-not sponsored)
and welcome to my blog. Basics are basic ?! SO NOT T’RUE. I am sharing this gray ribbed dress from the H&M basic section in order to proof that these pieces are beyond basic and super versatile.

Not also could it be worn with a thick pair of tights, UGG boots and a coat it could also be worn with lace-up flats and a denim jacket. The possibilites are endless.

I paired it with a cardigan in a gorgeous red shade and a matching tote from Michael Kors I got some years ago. Also are contrast heel booties still a thing? I do have this adorable pair I got from Tamaris last Winter. I still love it but haven´t seen much for this season?! But for sure bakerboy hats or cadett caps are a huge trend and still going strong. I also added 3 new colors to my collection including this adorable gingham print cap. It includes all the colors I am wearing. 

Do you like to add basics to your daily wardrobe or are you always on the hunt for exceptional pieces to get your wardrobe together.

Thanks for stopping by. Take care. See you.

#travelthursday – the best items to store your make-up products for travel….

….

Hi guys,
(post contains affiliate links / Werbung/Beitrag enthält Affiliate Links)
in pure joy for our next vacation next week – less than 5 days away –  I am sharing my top products to store my beauty products while traveling.

Since this is always a big issue for me cause I don´t want anything to be broken or spilled I have found some great products over the years which help a lot. 

I am by no means a travel expert but these are my tried and true favorites



sponge case Real Techniques
I discovered this by accident a few weeks ago and even I know it is not new invented I really think its pretty cool. If you are using another type of make-up sponge amazon offers a one size fits all in several colors. It is from Blenderelle and you can buy it here. Also really great idea.

brush case Jenny Patinkin 
This case is like a safe for your brushes. It is pretty hard and you can incorporate it into your luggage wherever you want. It won´t open or break during your travel. There is lots of space so you can easily store about 6 to 10 make-up bruhes. Depends on which ones you are taking. The only downside is that a big fan brush for highlighting won´t fit. It opens and closes easily with snaps. There are also other colors available but I had to stay true to myself and take the pink one.

vanity case River Island
This is by far my favorite vanity case I have ever gotten. I love the color pairing. Has such Japanese vibes. I love that it has two compartments and I love the price. I can put all of my make-up products and face products into it and also my jewelry and there is still space. This piece is a real miracle and I would buy this over and over again. Totally recommend it.
My design is sold out but it is currently available in a beautiful gold print and also in white.
  
I also got a silver vanity case. It is from a local drug store but I am sure they are available in every bigger drug store. I am using this little case for all of my “wet” products like shower gel, shampoo, body lotions and heat sprays. In case something is leaking it stays in the case and won´t spill over all my clothes. I wouldn´t recommend it for flying unless you are taking it as a carry-on piece. The outer shell isn´t thick enough for surviving the throwing around and the weight of other luggage pieces.



The little black LED mirror is my travel mirror I recently got. I love the lighting as it is really bright (LED) and you can see every flaw in your face. Hotel bathroom lighting differs from place to place and let me tell most of them is awful. Whether it is too glare, almost blue and you look sick from every angle or it is too orangy or too dark, probably is romantic but bad for putting on make-up. I love that is stands by itself so I have to free hands. 

Now I really gotta go and get some work done and also finish packing. View my other travel post here. It is all about the travel gadgets I love using.

Wardrobe staple – the white shirt….

white shirt Asos similar here and here / pants H&M similar here and here / sunnies old similar here / bag ChiChiFan / wedges Parfois similar here

….

Hi guys,
(post contains affiliate links / Werbung/Beitrag enthält Affiliate Links)
and what about talking basics today. There are so many fashon pieces which are called staples and I agree with the most of them and by far my most important staple piece is a white shirt. I had to notice this the hard way.

Throughout the years I really enjoyed wearing white (I did not wear a lot of white when I was younger cause it was all about colors for me) and so I love to pair mostly white shirts or tops with my summer skirt/pants. The problem is/or was I just hadn´t got a lot of them. When I would sum up the ones that where really wearable I might have two – the other ones where too short, too small or just not really white anymore. 

So what now ? Answer: I browsed the internet and found an incredible variety on white shirts/t-shirts/tanks/tops. This took hours although I had a look at the big retailer´s sites where all the brands are available. 

All I want to say with this post is that for building a versatile and fashionable wardrobe you might have to get the basics first and build up around them. And who wouldn´t need a white shirt throughout the year ?!
What are your thoughts on basics? I would love to hear.
