I’m trying to catch up with work all while preparing for the little one to arrive. He can actually be here anytime… However he will most likely wait for another few weeks, which is good as we are still waiting for the stroller, bed, nursing table etc. to be here. For those of you interested (and understands Danish) make sure to stop by Octobernine.dk – my blog for moms-to-be and all the new mommies where you’ll find shopping and beauty tips, interviews with some of the coolest ladies I know and pretty much everything that crosses my mind as pregnant.
And now to the outfit. How amazing is this Ganni dress?! Not only the print but also the layered and slightly see-through look of it. It was definitely love at first sight and teamed with a pair of Stan Smiths it works perfectly for a day in the city.
These boots weren’t the only piece I fell in love with when I visited Roger Vivier in Harrods Shoe Heaven two weeks ago. I walked out of the store in a pair of sorbet coloured flats that are so classic our grandmas could be wearing them yet so eye-popping we would be more likely to see them on the feet of Miroslava Duma or Alexa Chung. They perfectly add a dose of this season’s 1960s vibe to any look and teamed with a pair of printed pants you’ve got a winning look.
Tonight I’m heading to the launch party of the new Shoe Heaven in Harrods. Can’t wait to get out of pregnancy-state-of-mind for a few hours, and to get a closer look at the Silver Lining collection that features exclusive silver shoes designed by 37 different designers like Valentino, Prada, Jimmy Choo, Roger Vivier, Charlotte Olympia, Louis Vuitton and Alaïa.
A girl can never have too many shoes.
Yesterday I stopped by the new Jimmy Choo townhouse store on New Bond Street and these furry python clutches completely stole my heart. There’s just nothing like eye-popping accessories to complement or to make your outfit stand out.
I didn’t leave the store empty-handed – though it wasn’t a bag but instead a pair of shoes I brought back home with me. Stay tuned…
After all the recent hype I decided to give the sponges from The Konjac Sponge Co. a try – and it didn’t take me long to get addicted to the calming, softening and mild exfoliation effect the sponges offer the skin. For both face and body I went for the French Pink Clay sponges, which are perfect to refresh a sensitive skin as the clay repairs and improves circulation. You won’t see the changes to your skin overnight, but give it a few weeks and those annoying clogged pores will definitely improve making your skin appear more even and fresh faced.
It’s actually not necessary to use any cleansing products with the sponges but I prefer to – and after all adding some will only make the sponges work deeper. I was recently introduced to Mádara and have been using the Purifying Foam am and pm for the past few weeks now and I love it for being mild, effective, and organic. I massage it into damp skin before I bring the sponge into action and lastly rinse with warm water.
