Summer in New York

It's no secret that I am drawn to places that will inspire me, broaden my horizon or simply allow me to have a whole bunch of adventures. That's why my family and friends were never surprised when I moved to London right after school and why they were even less surprised about my decision to spend the summer in, you could say the most inspiring city of them all: New York City. 

The whole idea of living in this amazing city grew in my head the moment I boarded the plane back to Munich, after a fun filled and exciting trip to NYC last August 2015. I simply felt like there was unfinished business with me and this glorious city. I am very driven, some say stubborn, person, so I spent the next months back home putting the plan into action to move to New York.

Christinanista X Jord Wood Watches

I love mixing different textures, from faux fur, to leather and fringe, anything goes and I therefore love discovering new textiles and materials. When it comes to my jewellery and accessories I tend to be a bit more conservative and stick with classic metals, such as silver and gold, so it was definitely time to experiment a bit more in that department. I teamed up with Jord, who create the most stunning and unique wooden watches, which are far from ordinary and real stand out pieces. I never really had wood as a material in mind, when thinking about watches, but after taking a look at their collection and later seeing how beautifully crafted and light as a feather the watches are, I'm totally sold and appreciate this natural and modern material. The watch I went for is the Fieldcrest Zebrawood & Maple Watch which shows off the gorgeous intricacy of the wood grains and is a timeless keeper that can be styled in many different ways.

Spring Clean Your Handbag with Mywalit

In many aspects I'm definitely ready for summer: I've been active, hitting the gym on a regular basis and treating myself to some new gym gear and workout clothes. I've sorted out my wardrobe for the hotter days and stocked up on some vintage sunglasses. The only thing that definitely still needs a makeover is my bag! I've still been carrying around my black shopper and black leather wallet and have been in desperate need for some colour and also a good old spring clean when it comes to my handbag.  I definitely carry around way too many unnecessary things in my bag and am an expert at keeping loads of recipes I will never need again and losing those I do need in the depth of my stuffed wallet.

As I had enough of my not-so-summery attire and more importantly of trying to find my key for ages in this black hole of a bag, I've decided to take part in the mywalit Spring Clean Your Handbag Challenge and finally get my bag to match my mood and the season.

Life Lately #1

Hello Lovlies, it's been away so I wanted to share some pictures of what's going on in my life lately. I plan on making this a regular thing, because I find myself having loads of nice picture on my phone and nothing really happens with them, besides maybe an Instagram post. 

I've been completely knocked off my feet the last weeks, due to my wisdom teeth being taking out and therefore wasn't really in the mood to post or take pictures of myself (hamster-face-selfie no thank you). Before that whole my-face-looks-like-a-ballon situation happened I had a fabulous time full of yummy breakfasts, girly-chat and long overdue visits to the flea market. I've got myself several jackets at the flea market and just adore my new white furry jacket. I'm obsessed with blazers and jackets and therefore had to get an extra rack just for coats and jackets, as you can see above it's already stuffed to the fullest. 
I've also gone back to purple hair, after I had some fun experimenting with baby blue, I might go pastel rosé soon, but right now I'm back to the old but good purple!

Follow me on Instagram for all my current pictures!

Much love xxx

Christinanista X Happiness Boutique

Jumpsuit: H&M
Purse: Forever 21
Watch: Klaus Kobec
Necklace: Happiness Boutique*
When it comes to neklaces my mantra is the bigger the better and as I mentioned before I can't have enough statement necklaces to amp up the volume of any outfit. I'm also totally obsessed with jumpsuits, so this post basically represents a compilation of my current favourites. The necklace is a real stunner and I love combining a really flashy piece like that with a unicolour classic item like this black flowy jumpsuit.

Smile Brilliant Teeth Whitening

Teeth Whitening Review

I used to think that having whiter teeth wouldn't make much of a difference and certainly other people wouldn't notice. Well I got proved wrong there, because now that I have for me personally the perfect shade of white teeth I feel even more confident and notice the difference everytime I look in the mirror and especially in pictures. 
I started my teeth whitening journey, first with a cheap set of trays and whitening gel that I ordered over amazon. Quite frankly the trays where super uncomfortable and the result were pretty disappointing. After that I tried slightly higher prized whitening stripes, which gave me a much better visual result, however they weren't able to lightening my entire tooth and I realised that the strips didn't reach the gaps in between the teeth, which led to a an uneven result.

I was already contemplating booking an expensive teeth whitening session at the dentist for $600 , when I was approached by Smile Brilliant, a company that specialises on creating the same personalised trays and same results a dentist would, but for a way more reasonable prize of currently only $120!

Shoe Trend: Loafers and How to Style Them

Let’s start off with some fashion vocabulary, because one of the common mistakes is to mix up loafers and moccasins. Loafers and moccasins count as slippers or slip-ons, but although they look pretty similar, there’s one thing that makes the difference: Loafers have flat heels and moccasins don’t!

Now that it’s clear what shoe we are actually talking about, let me tell you a bit about the revival of this shoe-classic. Loafer’s been around for decades and became popular in the 1930s when students at the most prestige universities in the US started wearing them. Later on Gucci was one of the first to bring loafers to Europe, when the shoes traditionally had a leather bridge or two tassels in the front.
