Easy vitamin booster to go

My mornings are stressed, lunch breaks are short and hopping between work and college takes a lot of time too. Smoothies made my morning and day routines less stressful and healthier. 

I got a new smoothie maker for Easter with three bottles to go. Now I can blend and drink from the same bottle. 

Today I have to work on my master thesis. To safe time and nerves I brought my breakfast with me on my rooftop.

When I am in a smoothie mood in the morning, I prefer to use fruits. Don’t get me wrong. I like veggie drinks and green mixes too but I mix spinach, kale or celery mostly for dinner. Usually I blend everything what I find in my fridge. I have no special smoothie ingredient rule - besides only sweet fruits for breakfast.

This time I used a banana, raspberries, pieces of a fresh pineapple, a kiwi, a pear and chia seeds. I blended all and added 2 two tablespoons of low fat natural yoghurt and water.

Caution: White Out

Puristic, elegant and clean – I love white!

These days all white ensembles are omnipresent at Fashion Week catwalks. A trend which goes from the runway straight to the streets.

That’s how I incorporate the unicolor into my summer wardrobe. Giving the plain chic a sporty twist by teaming a blazer with ripped jeans.

Simple bohemian grunge

I am not a fan of typical hippie clothes but I like to combine classic styles with edgy and bold designs. There are days I love to put on my highest heels and fanciest dress or others when I just walk around with black fringes, vintage boots, ripped jeans and tough leather jackets.

My tip: Wear whatever your like but wear your style with attitude!

Healthy on-the-go breakfast

Hello easy and healthy breakfast!

They say there are two types of people: night owls and early birds - I might be someone in between.

I am that person who would rather sleep a few minutes longer than eat breakfast. So I came up with the idea to make tons of granola bars like my mum used to do when I was a kid.

Most of the purchased granola bars are too sweet for my taste. They pretend to be healthy, but are loaded with lots of sugar and lacking in nutrients.

That's why I skipped the store-bought snack and made my own very simple, quick and healthy granola bars.

They make not only an easy breakfast on the run, but also seriously simplify my
morning life.
You can find the recipe in the pictures below.

Pimp my sweats

Who doesn't love sweat pants. I do for sure!

Thanks to designers like Alexander Wang or Stella McCartney sweats became a trend. Furthermore a status as socially-acceptable streetwear piece.

But I am not talking about gym class or jammie sweat pants. No! Tailored silhouettes, simple cuts and puristic styles are turning our beloved jogging pieces into street style must haves.

Yesterday night I met up with my girls for some after work cocktails and I embraced the casual chic.

Just to be clear: I haven't lost control of my life. He might be a fashion legend but I don't think that sweatpants are a sign of defeat.

I'd rather be at Coachella

- Festival fashion is a trend and Coachella is the place -

It's on! Palm Springs is the place to be right now. The hottest music festival out there has started.

All of young Hollywood - models, celebrities and actors are hitting the road to gather and party in one of the most famous desert destinations.

Reading fashion news and magazines, seems more likely that Coachella is a California fashion week than a music festival. It turned into a style destination as much as it is a music festival. When it comes to festival fashion, Coachella is the king!

Festival fashion at its finest – with lots of fringes, crochets, high waisted shorts, crop tops, wide legged pants, rompers, sandals, boots and accessories.

Clicking through Coachella street style galleries and seeing that everybody have fun with their looks is the best. That's how I get new inspirations for my summer wardrobe.

I just can't get enough of the bohemian spirit and festival chic.

Check out my Coachella inspired looks for everyday life coming up this week!

Jump start your weekend

Simple, chic, comfortable and all-in one!

Call it playsuit, jumpsuit or overall - it's for sure one of my favorite must-haves this season. No surprise that I have four different styles of the iconic reinvented item from the 70ies.

The best part about the jumpsuit fashion trend is how ease and comfortable it is. You just jump in it and look dressed up. I just can’t get enough of the comfort and simplicity!

Jumpsuits are one of the most versatile pieces in my spring closet.

If you don't have one yet - go and get one. You will love it!

Short Easter getaway: Portorož

The last three days were great, packed with sun, good food and drinks. Easter weekend is perfect for a short getaway. This year was time for a place change. Portorož is a way much better alternative to Lignano and both are in a short distance.

Portorož is a small Adriatic-mediterranean coastal place in southwest Slovenia and a good choice for a weekend escape.The sea and the beach are beautiful and clean. The bay is surrounded by beach bars, excellent fish restaurants and good cocktail bars.

We stayed in the historic heart of Portorož  the Kempinski Palace. The five star deluxe hotel was announced to be the best spot at the Adriatic coast. To be honest the hotel was ok but next time or especially during summertime I would choose one of the cheaper places nearby.

The weather was great all three days long. We relaxed by the pool, actually we were sun bathing, walked on the beach and ate sooooo much delicious ice cream. My plan to eat very healthy was destroyed by this awesome gelateria, called Cacao.

Portorož is connected to Piran by a promenade along the beach. The magnificent medieval Venetian town is just around the corner in a distance of 3 km. Piran has a nice historic city center and offers a good range of charming medieval streets and alleys, bars and restaurants.

So now I am back in Salzburg and I am so happy that the snow and the bad weather are gone. Can't wait for summer.

Happy Easter!

Spring is in the air! Unfortunately there is no sign of spring in Tyrol right now. It is raining or even worse almost snowing. So I decided to escape and leave for a short easter getaway.

I wish you all a great long Easter weekend. I am on my way to the Adriatic coast. In a few hours I will be walking on the beach or sipping on an Aperol Spritz.

Before I go on a trip, I always choose my travel outfit. This one is comfortable for the drive and still cute when I arrive in Portoroz, Slovenia.

Thank god it's a sunny Friday

The first days of April has fooled Salzburg with bad weather. It was a very cold and rainy week.

But as soon as I arrived in Tyrol yesterday, it was snowing! And unfortunately, it was no April Fool's joke! As you can see in my picture:

Ten hours later it seems that spring is back! Thank god it’s a sunny Friday!

The sun's comeback brings me in a good mood. Instead of wearing sweaters, boots and scarfs, I welcomed the first sunny day of April with one of my favorite spring pieces.

Go Green

Easter weekend means family time, a lot of food and sweets. Saturday I will be at my Mom’s. And I am sure that the kitchen table will be loaded with unhealthy food. Before this upcoming food marathon, I decided to start the day healthy with a smoothie.
Seeing that everybody is so into green smoothies these days, I had to experience this new hyped drink by myself.
Since I won’t me home this weekend and my fridge was loaded with veggies, a smoothie was the best and a surprisingly good idea.
For my first green super drink I mixed up:
1 green apple 2 stalks celery juice of 1 lemon 1 inch fresh ginger 1/2 cucumber 2 heaping cups kale leaves 1/4 pinapple
Smmothies in general are a quick and easy way to get a large amount of veggies and fruits into a meal. Be creative with your smoothie recipe and try different vitamine and color mixtures.
