Happy International Kissing Day

July the 6th is the International Kissing Day. In some countries it is custom for both men and women friends to kiss each other on the lips as a greeting, while in others an air kiss on each other’s cheek is a standard. In other places some people actually opt for 3 kisses as a form of a greeting.

Of course, the most passionate is the kiss between partners. So, however you kiss, enjoy it and make it with feeling! Happy international Kissing Day everyone!

In any case I have to say a few words about my outfit – inspired by the color of the kiss đź’‹- a red transparent jacket, one of my favorite lace tops and black shorts, always combined with love, passion and in a fashionway.

Red passion on a wedding day

Notice the people who are happy for your happiness, and sad for your sadness – they’re the ones who deserve special place in your heart …

And because I am happy for the happiness of other people, today I want to share with you a special event which I attended – the wedding of two close friends.

The place was magnificent – Vila Vita Panonia – a hotel and a holiday village situated in Burgenland, on the sunny side of Austria. Not only the place, but also the organisation, the guests and friends – everything was amazing. One of the most existing things was of course the ceremony- like in the movies, on a small island in the lake, with the bride coming over a bridge with her father leading her – really like in a fairy tale…

We are waiting so long for this day – still when its there everything passes so quickly, like in a dream. But I like to say that the big emotions are hidden in the preparations for such an event.

I usually don’t fancy the red color, but for this occasion I wanted to wear a long red passion dress and wanted it to be really extraordinary elegant and beautiful. The length, the Schleif, the form and every small detail were important for me because I wanted to look perfect – for which I am extremely grateful to Alegra fashion who made the dress. And so I felt – walking with my husband – exceptionally good and like a princess, but in a modern variant, of course, in a fashionway.

Blogger’s life

People often ask me what is a real blogger’s life like actually and what am I doing all the time. As a blogger I constantly have a feeling I’m doing a thousand different things, 24/7. Those include for example writing articles and concepts, doing market research, taking care of my social networks, discussing outfits, do planning, organising and making my photo shoots, organising my travels, as well as many other things. Yes, the work and the responsibilities are a lot, but I am happy with this, as it also continuously brings me experience and knowledge, as well as many new friends and good contacts. And when you do something with your heart, like I do, things always work out at the end.

Reaching the conclusion that I have to do what makes me happy at my work, fulfils me not only professionally, but also personally – because gaining positive energy from what I do, as well as investing it back, I am able to pass it on to the people around me. I like how i feel after a long day of work – I might be exhausted, but at the same time happy that I have accomplished something. Every new project, each new thing, even if it is just a small step forward, for me is like a big leap.

To round it up: to achieve something good efforts are needed and such efforts require proper attitude – mine is always to give my best for what i love to do.

Carnival in Lanaken and Valkenburg

I want to share with you a great experience I had in the last days in Holland and Belgium – the Carnival. In Holland, Carnival is a holiday mainly celebrated in the south of the country in the the provinces Limburg and Noord-Brabant. The inhabitants take the Carnival celebrations very seriously – they prepare a lot and make it very well organised – they dance, sing and drink, wearing colorful outfits.

Every year the Carnival has its Prince – the Prince of Carnival, who for three days, together with his subjects celebrates the temporary establishment of their Kingdom of Fools. Merrymakers make their way from pub to pub and greet the Prince Carnival with three cheers of “Alaaf”.

In Belgium the festival goes in a very similar manner like in the Netherlands – I had the chance to enjoy the fun at a local street party in Lanaken. Every year people all over France and Belgium celebrate Carnival by dressing up in vibrant costumes, striking hats and masks in a tradition that goes back centuries.

The festival has its origins in the Christian custom of giving up something for Lent. Also known as Mardi Gras, the annual event is staged to mark the beginning of a 40-day period of abstinence. And although the most famous parades are the ones staged in New Orleans and Rio de Janeiro, the people of Belgium are also dab hands at creating a spectacle for the yearly celebration.

Skiing in Carinthia

Carinthia is situated in the southern part of Austria and is called „The land of sun“. In winter it is snow covered and as in most other parts of the country, skiing is the main activity. The mood is more relaxed with a Mediterranean touch as it borders with Italy – nearly everyone down here speaks Italian.

One of the biggest resorts in Carinthia is Bad Kleinkircheim, which is quickly moving up the rankings of the ski resorts in Austria. It has over 100km of pistes, 24 lifts and a slope steep enough to get included in the world cup circuit. There is enough snowfall throughout the season, but the sunny days are abundant as well – as you can see for the several days I was skiing there it was sunny all the way.

The hut at the top of Kaiserburg, situated 2019 meters above sea level, is a notorious one, with the fine views it offers and a traditional interior, as you can see from the pictures. Service and the food quality are very traditional for the region.

Love skiing

I was a 2,5 year old little girl when I started skiing and since then my love for the sport never faded away. It is a great feeling each winter to get on the skis, but it’s also a very good exercise, especially when you are good at it.

This year I was in a very beautiful resort – Bad Kleinkircheim, situated in the Carinthia part of the Alps. I enjoyed every bit of it – from the great weather and fantastically well prepared slopes, to the marvellous views the Alps presented, as you can see on the pictures. I planned to write a lot about it, but no words are really needed when the photos can talk for themselves. It was like a winter tale.

Happy and pretty

There are so many estimations about how many hours women spend for shopping and clothing, but honestly I find this to be one of the activities I tend to enjoy too :). I think so, because a real woman or a pretty girl should stick to what makes her happy – be it shopping, clothing or just walking on the street while making heads turn, as things in life are easier and enjoyable only when you yourself are satisfied with your day.

I have always tried to be a „pretty woman“, but never following all the requirements and standards of „being pretty“. The „frames“ make me uncomfortable and standards alone are not enough to make you outstanding. To look nice for me does not only mean that you choose the nicest clothes you have, but also finding what your soul desires to feel beautiful and attractive. So, my mood today was a shopping one – going and searching what the latest designer labels are offering.

By the way I have never been too fond of snake prints – it’s not my favourite, but it does have a great sense of style and brings one more level of variety in my closet, reclaiming its territory in 2018, and still being up to date in 2019. Pairing snake accessories is always tricky, but black always matches very well. Both the outfit and the shopping itself made my day.

So what makes YOU feel happy and pretty?

Cold weather, tender feeling

Cold weather, winter… The cold dark weather usually makes me feel down, but i can still be happy and enjoy my time because when indoors the atmosphere is so different – cosy and warm. Even better when I have a softy tender sweater on – the kitten soft feeling is so incredible. I cant stop snuggling up to it – so do not fight the cold feeling, catch a tender one!

And a yellow touch is always a good idea, matching also with the evening light. Days are short in winter, but the spring is coming soon, in which season yellow will continue to be trendy.

First weekend of the year… no bad energy allowed

I like the meaning of this sentence: „Do what you have to do until you can do what you want to do before Monday“. In this context I want to say that each of us needs to withdraw from the cares which will not withdraw from us somehow during the weekend. One of my favourite ways to achieve that is by going out, meeting friends, having a glass of good wine, etc.

Of course never forget the outfit too – I really love my black paw scarf, nearly as much as I love the animals that inspired its design. In addition, I have to mention the burgundy colour that I enjoy so much and is very trendy, in a fashionway.
