Valentine’s day breakfast with Hands Off My Chocolate

hands off my chocolate valentines day recipe yoghurt parfait

Happy Valentine’s Day babes!

As today is a day to do something extra for your significant other, or to just cook a lovely dinner together I decided to share something different with you. Let me start by saying I am a HUGE, truly HUGE chocolate lover so when I came in contact with Hands Off My Chocolate* a couple of years ago I was a fan! Every piece of chocolate has MINE written onto it with just one, yep one, piece which has yours written on it. Love it, more for me! #spreadthewordnotthechocolate! 😉

But for Valentine’s Day I am making an exception, well not really, you have to buy the chocolate for this recipe yourself! However, I’m sharing one of my favorite recipes at the moment in collaboration with Hands Off My Chocolate. My Crispy Cookie chocolate and strawberry yoghurt parfait! Read on for the full recipe 🙂

Day to night – lookbook

day to night

Hi babes!

Before it’s time to hop back to bed I just really wanted to share this lookbook with you all! I shot this lookbook last Thursday with Margot for a collaboration with MYLC a new Dutch webshop full of it-girl items – yeah you should definitely check it out!

Ever since I started working 36 hour weeks I have noticed that shooting is a little bit of an issue. An afternoon is just nearly enough for 2/3 looks but it feels pretty rushed if I am being absolutely honest… Especially if you are doing your make-up before the shoot and you come to the conclusion that your winter shades of foundation are all done-so, empty – shit! Yep a blogger life is not always rainbows and butterflies let me tell you that haha. So sorry for the presidential face-paint 😉

Now let me tell you a little bit about my day look, which is casual chic combination of the purrrfect faux-fur coat from D brand, the prettiest satin-look oversized blouse by MYLC*, a black skinny jeans with cut-outs and a fringed hemline from H&M and pumps from Sacha. To finish the look I am wearing earrings from MYLC* and a gorgeous leather bag from Are You Swedish Cool Department.

What do you think of the day-time look?

Travel Thursday: the Mandeville hotel London

the mandeville hotel london french riviera christian lacroix room9

Hi loves,

As you all know I have been to London a couple of weeks ago and although the trip didn’t all go as planned we had a lot of fun and absolutely enjoyed our trip! Let me tell you, the hotels we stayed in; the Mandeville and CitizenM did help an awful lot!

For one night we stayed in the gorgeous Mandeville hotel in the Marylebone area in London. Not only is this 4-star boutique hotel perfectly situated, read: near the shopping area ;), the hotel also has a great eye for design. For the 5th floor the Mandeville collaborated with La Maison Christian Lacroix which resulted in 4 absolutely fabulous rooms inspired by the French Riviera.

Lucky as we were we got to stay in one of the gorgeous Christian Lacroix rooms: the Midnight Blue room. Check it out! 😀

What I wear as a daily casual outfit

Daily casual outfit ootd shein5

Ciao babes,

Isn’t it lovely to sometimes just wear something completely comfortable and casual? Today I want to show you one of my daily casual looks, something that is super easy to wear and comfy!

When I want to dress casual and comfortable I always wear a nice pair of jeans with a good fit – preferable high waist and skinny or a girlfriend/boyfriend fit. Sneakers are my go to item for a comfy look as well! For this look I styled them with my varsity style bomber jacket from SheIn and a huge fluffy scarf by IMYF. To finish the look I brought my little Furla bag with me.

What do you think of this daily casual outfit? Would you wear something like this as a comfy look or do you have another casual style?

Baci,
Saranda
