Let’s pretend we’re dancing in the street

(Suomeksi alla)

Ruffled shirts and wide legged jeans can be seen everywhere now. I wanted to give this trend a try, and the lovely people of Lane Bryant gave me the chance to do so :)!

I chose a ruffled white shirt, wide leg cropped jeans and a denim patchwork anorak, and teamed them up with a pair of Converse, red lips and sunnies from Le Specs (surprise surprise haha). This look is certainly something new for me, but I ended up really loving it. To be honest, these jeans haven’t left my body much during the past few weeks! Is this trend something that you guys have tried?

Coat / Takki*: 26-28, 6th & Lane by Lane Bryant | Shirt / Paita*: 28, Lane Bryant | Jeans / Farkut*: 28, Glamour x Lane Bryant | Shoes / Kengät: Converse | Sunglasses / Aurinkolasit: Runaways Luxe by Le Specs | Lipstick / Huulipuna*: Maybelline Color Drama Intense Lip Paint in 520, Red-dy Or Not

Röyhelöiset paidat ja leveät farkut ovat näkyvillä kaikkialla. Halusin itsekin kokeilla tätä trendiä, ja Lane Bryantin huipputyypit antoivat minulle mahdollisuuden :)!

Valitsin valkoisen röyhelöpaidan, leveälahkeiset lyhyet farkut ja farkku anorakin, ja yhdistin niihin Converset, punaiset huulet ja aurinkolasit Le Specsiltä (ylläri ylläri haha). Tällainen asu on todellakin uutta minulle, mutta loppujen lopuksi tykkäsin tästä tosi paljon. Itseasiassa nämä farkut eivät ole paljoa poistuneet jaloistani parin viimeisen viikon aikana! Onko tämä trendi tullut teillä jo kokeiltua?

I’m so into you

I have had this YOONA trench from navabi for a while, but the weather has been too cold for me to wear it – but finally the time is here! Denim is everywhere this season, so I think this is the perfect coat for me at the moment. I teamed it up with this Zizzi LBD and black brogues. Simple but nice!

Coat / Takki*: 26-28, YOONA via navabi (partly gifted) | Dress / Mekko*: M, Zizzi – sample (similar) | Tights / Sukkikset: XXL, Primark Full Figure Tights | Shoes / Kengät*: George at ASDA (similar) | Scarf / Huivi*: F&F (similar) | Lipstick / Huulipuna*: Maybelline Color Drama Lip Paint in 610, Stripped Down

Tämä YOONA trenssi navabilta on ollut vaatekaapissani jo jonkin aikaa odottamassa kevään tuloa – ja vihdoin ilma on tarpeeksi lämmin sen käyttöön! Farkkukankaat ovat nykyään kaikkialla, ja tästä tulee kyllä yksi lempparitakeistani tällä kaudella. Yhdistin takkiin Zizzin mustan mekon, ja mustat kengät. Simppeliä mutta toimivaa!

Perfect pamper day

(Kylpyläreissu ja illallinen saatu yhteistyössä Entertainer App:in kanssa, ja koska kyseessä on Lontoon applikaatio, jätin käännöksen tekemättä.)

A couple of weeks ago Mayah and I got a lovely invite for a spa day and dinner from The Entertainer App, and there was no way we would have turned that down. Both of us have been needing relaxation and pampering, so this was the perfect invitation.

We started the day at Spa Verta in Battersea, where we were booked for half an hour massages. The relaxation area where we waited was gorgeous and calming, and we got to enjoy delicious coffees – as we simply can’t function without coffees in the morning haha.

I haven’t had a massage in yeeeeeeeears, and if you are a long time reader, you might remember I had a shoulder injury… so there was a bit of worry in my excitement. My therapist was lovely though, and I wish the treatment would have been longer!

After the massages we had access to the spa area, and spent hours between 3 saunas (Finnish sauna, sanarium and steam room) and the hydrotherapy pool enjoying the jacuzzi jets. Seriously I loved this so much, I wish I could go every week! Mayah and I keep talking about the day though, so I’m sure we’ll go back soon.

After the spa day we got to go for dinner at the Soho Indian restaurant, The Red Fort. I loved the dark red and black decor from the second we walked in. We picked a nice South African white wine (that ended up being a GREAT choice) and hit the menu.

I went with murgh seekh for starter, which was spiced roasted minced chicken skewers with ginger, garlic, coriander and cumin. I ate them with the mango chutney and they were lovely, but very spicy. (Haha, I might have gotten my face all sweaty because of that.) And for my main I got murgh malai, which was chicken tikka pieces marinated with cardamom with rice and naan.

My favourite part of the dinner was the dessert though – that rich chocolate mousse was aaaaaamazing! Also a bar called Zenna is located in the basement of The Red Fort, so that is a perfect place for those after dinner drinks.

All in all the day was just what Mayah and I needed, and if you want to do something similar with your best friend – The Entertainer App is full of great 2 for 1 deals that get you all the pampering and entertainment you and your bestie could want for half the price!

I was recently contacted by a German brand, Ulla Popken. The brand is celebrating its 30th birthday this year, and I have seen it around in German blogs that I follow. They asked if I’d like to give their clothes a go and choose an outfit from their new brand YU by Ulla Popken, and like this post shows – I did :). I went for a parka, top and a denim skirt, and they make up a nice casual outfit. The sizing is pretty spot on, and the clothes are comfy on.

The other thing.. these glasses from Glasses Direct! How great are they? I feel like they were meant for me after I dyed my hair haha.

Coat / Takki*: 26-28, YU by Ulla Popken | Top / Paita*: 26, YU by Ulla Popken | Skirt / Hame*: 26, YU by Ulla Popken | Tights / Sukkikset: XXL, Primark Fuller Figure Tights | Shoes / Kengät*: Ecco via Shoes International | Lipstick / Huulipuna*: Maybelline Color Sensational Lipstick in 955, Craving Coral | Glasses / Silmälasit: London Retro Bromley via Glasses Direct

Saksalainen merkki Ulla Popken otti minuun yhteyttä jokin aika sitten. Merkki juhlii tänä vuonna 30-vuotissynttäreitään, ja olen nähnyt merkin vaatteita aiemmin seuraamieni saksalaisten bloggaajien asuissa. He kysyivät, jos haluaisin valita asun heidän uudesta YU by Ulla Popken -merkistään, ja päädyin tähän yhdistelmään :). Takki, paita ja farkkuhame, jotka yhdessä ovat ihan kiva arkiasu.

Ja toinen juttu.. nämä lasit Glasses Directiltä! Siis ihanat, eikö? Tuntuu, että ne sopii tosi hyvin tähän uuteen hiusten väriin heh.
