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

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.

DIY Sequin Necklace

I have another DIY post for you today and wanted to show you a simple way of creating a lovely necklace that you can vary in style and colours easily to suit your taste. On top you can already see the finished result and what you will need to make this DIY sequin necklace, so this is what you'll need:

- Sequins in different colours but in the same size (you'll need quite a few so buys a couple of packs of each colour)
- A thin string that is firm enough to easy go through the sequins (I chose a string which is basically a thin coated wire)
- Other bigger pearls or stones of your choice to spice up your necklace
- A fastener, which you can either buy new in a DIY store or take from an old necklace you don't use no more
- Small pliers or scissors to attach your fastener to the necklace

City Break: Milan Weekender!

Well I'm going to let the pictures do most of the talking, because Milan is just such a gorgeous city and the perfect destination for any wine lovers, foodies or shopaholics looking for a nice weekend break. Munich is only 50mins away by plane from Milan, so on a rainy Thursday afternoon I decided to book a spontaneous weekend trip to Milan and literally pack my bags and leave 2 days after. I love being spontaneous and thought it was the best decision ever to just give myself a break from all the uni work and 9 to 6 office stays. Trevor, who is currently busy putting the finishing touches to his single and music video, luckily needed some creative break as well and was the perfect white wine drinking buddy and touristy-picture-taker!

Blue Hues

It's been a while since I shared an outfit with you and due to the fact that I have a new camera and tripod, I thought why not put it to the test and show you a typical day to day outfit of mine. You might have seen on my Instagram that I changed my hair colour to a pastel blue therefore I decided to give the whole post a blue theme and play around with some editing. Luckily I have a white wall in my apartment which turns out to be the perfect canvas for outfit pictures and more outside the box editing. Most well established bloggers tend to go with very subtle editing and bright/white colour palette, but for this particular post I thought it would be a bit boring to just stick with the same old look.
