something NEW

winter socks and funky shoes – these are my two newest things. I absolutely love to wear thick comfy wool socks in winter and I was really happy to have found these at MANOR in basel but they are actually made by ESPRIT. did you know that you can get an ESPRIT friends card and collect points when shopping. I just got my overview and got a voucher for 25.90 CHF. will soon be spending this amount or more (like always) at the SALE at ESPRIT basel. the shoes I have found at BATA on SALE yay! what an amazing color – RED – I am totally going for this particular red. such an easy way to wear a jeans – t-shirt – blazer look in a different way because they are not sneakers but also not ballerinas. although I totally agree that they look rather sporty than elegant. I am already looking forward to wear both of the pieces in different outfits for the blog. stay tuned. xx

are you ready for the holidays

so many things to take care of. it is the busiest time of the year and lots of stress is involved. inviting your friends and family, organizing presents, cleaning the house, booking flights or what ever else we have to do before christmas and new years eve. this year I am quiet organized and I already have almost all the presents – have you seen my wishlist yet?

today I wanna share an italian tradition with you which involves red lingerie! I have found this lovely bra and panty at MANOR in basel (bra 39.90 CHF / panty 19.90 CHF) and I can not wait to wear it for new years eve! the bra is really nicely cut with a slight pushup effect – perfect for a sexy cleavage. there is also a slip and tanga but I am a panty lover and I liked the design of the panty best.

so what do the italians do on december 31? they make sure to wear red lingerie. red is the color of good luck and fortune. by wearing red lingerie they make sure the luck is on their side and to get rid of negative energy. it is also very common to give red lingerie as a present and this will bring lots of good luck to the reciver and will protect him from evil in the year ahead. I think this tradition is really sweet and I also read about other funny traditions like throwing your kitchen ware out of the window 🙂 read more here <<

so I already got my red lingerie. what about you? what is your special tradition for the holidays?

my lunch SNACK

tomato-potato soup from MANOR and my first GRÄTTIMA this year with a bowl of my favorite chips by ZWEIFEL. I couldnt believe my eyes when I saw that MIGROS is already selling grätima – this is something we eat on december 6, for santa claus. but next to the grätima I saw there were already some X MAS cookies – wtf ? ehm, I am not in a winter mood yet, but thanks for offering the sweet side of it as I can not stand the cold of the swiss winters! BON APPETIT!
