Hi babes,

It has been a while again and today I want to tell you about about all the things I have been up to lately. Because, heck, I have been so super busy! So busy that I felt like I needed to put my blog aside for a little while, to really focus on the opportunity I got.

I don’t want to spoil anything so I won’t be telling you exactly what I have been up to. But I can tell you that this opportunity really came at the right time for me. A time where I was contemplating what I really wanted to do and than that thing sort of just came a long..

Never would I have thought that it would happen in this way though, but I am happy that it did! So far I have been putting so much energy in this project already, and so far it has already been a lot of fun, while it actually will get more fun, I think! And I can not wait to be able to show it to you and tell you more about it!

But let’s continue. I have been away from the keyboard for a while. I haven’t blogged since the beginning of january and I actually also neglected my social media. Let me tell you why….

The best Christmas gifts for him – Time for presents!

best christmas gifts for him

Ciao dearies,

During the holiday period I have noticed a lot of people around me are thinking hard and deep. What to get for my boyfriend, husband, father or brother. Mankind is different from us women and sometimes it is hard to figure out what the hell they want. Well no more stress from now on! With this ‘The best Christmas gifts for him’ giftguide you will be ready in a jiffy 😉

So here it is some presents that never go out of style for our beloved men.

On number 1, a stylish and high quality umbrella! I have heard my boyfriend complaining many times about my easy and cheap umbrellas haha. Maybe it is time (okay it’s a big(!) investment) to get him a nice umbrella of his own. I found this umbrella from James Smith and Sons on the gentlemans journal, who also gives 4 other suggestions!

Read on to read the full Christmas gifts for him giftguide 🙂

Baci,

Red velvet – Outfit post

Red velvet outfit ootd fashionblogger sarandaadriana1

Ciao dearies,

Red velvet colors and cakes are one of my favorites lately and so I decided to dedicate one of my outfits to this color. This color shows so much power, strength and is just super fierce, in my humble opnion. Besides this I have heard many times that people really like this color on me and I must admit that the color is growing on me. At first I really felt like it was to harsh for my skin but it actually makes my skin look more flawless or something?

I don’t know what is is to be honest, but in my eyes it looks pretty awesome and perfect. Can you tell what it is exactly? Why this color seems to match so well with my fair skin?

Because in my eyes this color is pretty freaking fierce I decided to wear it with a dress and something fluffy! Just to add a little bit of cute and feminine in this strong look. In this red velvet outfit I am wearing a dress from Zara, Karley feather vest from Isabelli, chunky overknees from Sacha*, Pauls Boutique bloggerbag* and Daniel Wellington Classic Oxford watch. By the way, before I forget and I almost did already (whoops), you can get 15% off at Daniel Wellington by using discount code ‘Sarandipity’ at checkout!

For my make-up I decided to pair my red velvet lipstick from Kiko Milano (Unlimited Stylo, long-lasting creamy lipstick in color 012) with a pink-ish blusher, lots of highlighter, a little bit darker / bushy eyebrows and a winged eyeliner.

What do you babes think of this outfit? Do you agree that this color suits me well? Or do you maybe think that this is a bit to harsh? I am super curious to hear your opinion so don’t forget to let me know what you think!

Pyjama Party – Outfit post

Pyjama party victorias secret sarandaadriana blog blogger1

Ciao dearies, today I am having a pyjama party day and I really really really wanted to show you my newest pyjamas!

I have always been in love with this type of pyjama because to me it looked super comfy and an easy PJ set to just wear when you are chilling as well. So just before we boarded the Thalys to Paris I could not leave Amsterdam Central station before checking out the Victoria’s Secret store and see if the one I loved the most was still available in my size. Lucky me it was laying there, waiting for me! And so my new pyjama accompanied me to Paris, not knowing that we were going to have a little pyjama party in our hotel during our stay.

I can not tell you how much fun it was to shoot my new favorite PJ’s in a huge queensize bed with loads of pillows. I can only show you! As I think my smile and smizing eyes say it all haha.

These pyjamas are perfect when you get cold quickly during the night, and if you are looking for a new indoor lounch outfit this PJ’s function perfectly as well. I really am super happy with my purchase. It is a bit of an investment but this pyjama is worth the money as I think I will be able to use and wear this PJ set for a very long time to come!

Just check out the photos and let me know what you think of my little pyjama party!
