outfit: fringe everywhere

4/23/15
Back in Lisbon I noticed the major fringe trend! Every shop, from Zara to Stradivarius, was full with beautiful fringed items and I couldn't resist buying some. Also Coachella was on during that time so I got inspired by the whole festival/boho vibe. I can't wait for summer, good weather, long nights, shorts, messy hair... well freedom! Sometimes I wish we could beam ourselves and just avoid the harder times aka final exams. 
Anyhow, back to the outfit which is true to the motto 'less is more': simple skinny Jeans and black T dressed up with a fringed blazer and heels. Oh and I just love how the brick wall works with my look, don't you?

Asos Heels, Diesel Jeans (get them here), Zara T-shirt, Pull&Bear Blazer (get it here), Primark Necklace, Vintage Sunnies from a flea market

Wéi ech zu Lissabon war ass mer den Fransen Trend fir de Summer opgefall; an all Buttek waren souvill Saachen mat Fränjelen dass och ech net dolaanscht komm sinn. Deen Moment war och de bekannten amerikaneschen Festival Coachella amgaang – wou ech sécher eemol wäert higoen – sou dass ech doduerch och inspiréiert ginn sinn. Oh wat ech mech op de Summer freeën! Gutt Weeder, laang Nuechten, kuerz Boxen... Fräiheet. Leider sinn virum Summer awer nach 6 stresseg Wochen voll mat Examen déi ech als éischt nach muss hannert mech bréngen. Heiansdo wéilt ech et kéint een sech beamen haha.
Zréck zum Outfit, ganz nom Motto manner ass méi: eng einfach enk Jeans an en schwaarzen Tshirt, déi duerch de Blazer an Tallek Schung e bëssen méi ugedoen ausgesinn.

travel: LISBOA

4/20/15

It’s been the longest time since I’ve been on holidays with my family. So when my sister asked me a few months back if I wanted to go with them during the Easter holidays I said yes. We decided on a city trip and soon after it was clear that we wanted to go to Lisbon, the capital of Portugal. Being back in Luxembourg, I think we couldn’t have chosen better! I fell in love with this colourful city. For the first 4 days we had the best weather; it was sunny but not too hot, just how I like it. On the 5th day it was cloudy but as we wanted to do some shopping at the (huge) Colombo shopping mall, it didn’t bother us at all.

We decided to stay in an apartment rather than a hotel, as it was cheaper. The apartment we chose couldn’t have been located better! We stayed in one of the Olivier Apartments in the very heart of Lisbon, it was located right next to the main shopping street and a lot of the attractions, as well as very delicious restaurants, were just a short walk away. The only downside to the apartment was that it was on the 5th floor without elevator (which I knew when I booked it) so this was a little extra sport twice a day. As it is located in an old building, you can’t expect the walls to be 100% soundproof or the drain of the shower to be super fast, but those small things didn’t really bother me. I’d recommend the apartment without any hesitation. The interior, the brightness, the cleanliness and above all, the location were perfect. To sum up: it was a bright cosy place to stay, in the very heart of Lisbon. (We paid a little over 800€ for 5 nights)

On the first day, arriving around 2 p.m, we explored the area around the apartment by foot before having a delicious diner at Lisboaà Noite (recommended by a friend of mine). The next day we walked around Alfama, climbing up to the Sao Jorge Castle from where we had amazing views all over the city. That night we had a traditional Portuguese diner at Pinóquio. On Sunday we took the Hop on Hop Off Bus to get to the main attractions – Eduardo VII Park & Belém. The bus only drove until 5.30 pm which was a bit unfortunate as the weather couldn’t have been better – it felt like summer! We had diner close to the apartment at the Santa Justa Restaurant, the food was good but the service was a bit slow. On Monday we decided to go to Sintra as the cab driver we had from the airport to our apartment said that we absolutely had to go! He was so right. We climbed up to the Pena National Palace and I think it was the most colourful place I’ve ever seen and the view was simply breathtaking. On the last day we walked around some more and went, as I mentioned before, to the Colombo Shopping Mall. I think that was pretty boring for my dad and his girlfriend but my sister and I, we had fun haha.

This was a small summary of our days in Lisbon. I really want to go back again, but this time with friends, so I can explore another side of the city – it’s supposed to have a freat nightlife scene. Have you ever been? How did you like it?



Ech war schonn éiweg net méi mat menger Famill an d’Vakanz. Dëst Joer guff et also mol rëm eemol Zäit, an also Student seet een dann och net nee wann een gefrot gëtt fir mat ;). Mier hunn eis decidéiert fir e puer Deeg an eng Staat ze goen, een City Trip wéi een dat haut nennt. Eisen Choix ass dunn och relativ schnell op Lissabon gefall, an fir mech war et absolut de richtegen Choix. Ech hunn mech an des, éischter kleng, Staat verléift. Wat natierlech bestemt och domadder zesummen hänkt dass mir super Weeder haten an mat der Sonn sen all di schéin Faarwen vun den Haiser nach vill méi erauskomm. De leschten Daach war et zwar meeschtendeels bedeckt, mee dat huet eis net weider gesteiert well mir do Shopping um Programm stoen haten.

Ech konnt eraus wielen wou mer géingen schlofen an hunn mech, nodeem ech Booking.com duerchgekuckt hat, fir een Olivier Appartement entscheed. Et luch net nëmmen ideal mee et war och nach manner deier wéi een Hotel. Et war direkt parallel zu der Haaptakafsstrooss am Zentrum vu Lissabon, mat villen gudden Restauranten net wäit wech. En Nodeel war allerdings, dass et um 5te Stack war, an opschon ech dat wosst wei ech gebucht hat, hat ech mer dei Trapen net sou ustrengend fiergestallt wei se dunn schlussendlech waren. Mee e bëssen extra Sport 2-3 mol am Daach huet awer och net geschuet. Well et an engem relativ alen Gebai war, waren d’Maueren natierlech net immens géint Kaméidi isoléiert an Dusch ass och net immens ofgelaf, mee dat sinn Klengegkeeten dei dono awer keen wierklech gesteiert hunn. Den Interieur, d’Liicht, d’Propperheet an virun allem d’Laach waren top. E bëssen iwwer 800 Euro fir 5 Deeg war och en ganz fairen Präiss.

Nodeems mir Freides am fréien Nomëtten ukomm sinn, hunn mir eis ze Fouss op de Wee gemaach an d’Géigend rondrëm eist Appartement e bëssen entdeckt. Owes waren mir an den Lisboa à Noite eesen, en Restaurant deen ech vun engem Kolleg recommandéiert kritt hunn, an et war wierklech super gutt! Samschdes dunn, sinn mir duerch Alfama getrëppelt bis erop bei Sao Jorge Buerg vun där aus een eng super Vue iwwert di ganz Staat hat. Owes hunn mir traditionell portugisesch am Restaurant Pinóquio gees, deen net schick mee eben ganz traditionell war. Sonndes hunn mir den Hop on Hop off Bus geholl, well et déi bescht Méiglechkeet war all déi grouss Saachen kucken ze goen. Leider ass en awer just bis hallwer 6 gefuer, wat e bëssen Schued war well d’Weeder war immens schéin an mir wären gär nach méi laang op verschidden Platzen bliwwen. Deen Owend hunn mier direkt beim Appartement am Santa Justa Restaurant gees, wou d’Eesen och ganz gutt war awer de Service dach e bëssen lues. Méindes sinn mir mam Zuch op Sintra gefuer, eng kleng Staat 20 km ausserhalb vun Lissabon. Den Taxi Chauffer deen mir vum Flughafen an d’Staat haten, huet eis gesot dass mir onbedéngt dohinner missten. An en hat Recht, et war wonnerschéin! Mier sinn bis ganz erop bei den Pena Palast spadséiert, en Palast deen wonnerschéin faarweg ass an vun deem aus een eng super super Vue huet! Et ass op alle Fall dowärt op Sintra ze fueren an den Zuch ass ganz modern an guer net deier. Eisen leschten Daach hunn mir domatt verbruecht shoppen ze goen (well mäin Bauch schlecht war, sinn ech bis 2 am Appartement bliwwen, dh fir mech war dat een relativ kuerzen Daach). Mier hunn den Metro an den Colombo Shopping Center geholl, an och wann et relativ langweileg fir mäi Papp an seng Frëndin war, meng Schwëster an ech mir hunn awer gutt akaaft haha ;)

Sou dat war en klengen Resumé vun eiser Vakanz. Ech well onbedéngt nach eemol zréck, deste Kéier awer dann mat Kollegen fir och di aner, méi jonk Säit vu Lissabon kennen ze léieren. War dier schonn do? Wéi huet et eech gefall?
