Skiing is the next best thing to having wings

For me the ski holiday is always a great time – not only is it a great sport, but such an inspiring experience every single time. I think that into the mountains I go to lose my mind and find my soul. Moreover the mountain, the snow , the cold, altogether make me feel alive.

Always when I’m on the mountain, I’m just so thankful to be there! I can’t explain with words the way I feel there on the white slopes – it is a mix of happiness, awe and thankfulness that I get to touch this majestic beauty. 

And in order to be fit, in balance, and flexible I prepare always a well-maintained equipment and outfits to help me make sure that I will have a great time 😊. I choose Bogner ski combi, Burton sweatshirt, backpack and gloves, Under armour shirt, a fancy Dior helmet, Michael Kors sun glasses and sock boots, Cygnus and Alpina goggles, Hoxyheads pussycat helmet ears that make your ski helmet a real eye-catcher and neon pink Shawn Mendes double-layered hat in a soft rib knit.

Have a holly jolly Christmas

Hello everyone! I hope you are doing great and feeling super festive! I can’t believe that Christmas is already here… So exciting! In line with the festive mood, I want to share this post called „Have a holly jolly Christmas“, just as my outfit here says.

It’s the most magical time of the year and I guess you already have your Christmas tree and some festive plans coming up. For me, I always linked these holidays to the tree decoration, the family comfort and the Christmas mood.

So, I wish you for this Christmas Eve lots of wonderful moments with your family and/or friends, and may it bring joy to your hearts and happiness to your home!

Double chocolate and then add some kiss

In Vienna, when the weather refuses to cooperate, you can always go inside – either shopping, or like me here – in one of the best traditional chocolate and cakes coffee house – Gerstner. I like to eat there a strudel and drink a melange, especially during the Christmas holidays when the mood inside is so unique. I adore this old style beauty you can see in the photos.

With the most beautiful holidays of the year just around the corner, I cannot resist the pieces of art they have here, so beautifully packed as presents. 

In the glamour of this pastry shop, I continue the silver glitter trend from my previous posts – my outfit consists of silver Calzedonia leggings, a black oversized sweater, a cute short gray cape and black booties also with a silver touch.

And to all of you, for the coming Christmas, I wish you a double chocolate and then add some kiss.

Would you wear your swimsuits 365 days a year?

With this post I will continue the topic of my previous one – namely swimsuits. I already wrote that I’m not a bikinis fan, but I like summer so much and dream to live somewhere where the summer lasts forever, that I keep asking myself – what would it be like to wear bikinis 365 days a year?

I guess it would be a challenge, but one that maybe one day I will be able to take up. I would then wear not just one-pieces, but any kind I could find – different sets, combinations, colors and forms. Here I chose a set where the top highlights the breasts, while the bottom part gently highlights the curves of the body. The color of course is highly important – even if the model is great, if its not in the correct color it looses the effect.

Isn’t it true that some of the most required things you need for a great beach day is a slay bikini set to show off your beautiful unique body and your good mood. But how is the good mood coming – when you feel good and look nice in a fashionway. Don’t forget also to pick a good pareo – my personal favorite pareo color is black.

One-piece swimsuit or bikinis?

I am so super excited about today’s post, because while normally I write about clothes – today it’s about swimsuits. As you know, I travelled to the Black sea in Bulgaria and one of my favorite parts of getting ready for the trip is picking out the beach attires. It is hard for me to find a swimsuit I like because honestly I am not a bikinis fan – I usually wear tankinis or one-piece. Over the years, I’ve found that if I look in the right places and pick the right brands, I can find swimsuits that can really make me feel self confident and pretty.

It’s really comfortable and while I am not so eager to lay on the beach, for swimming it’s perfect .

Moreover this year the one-piece swimsuits have somehow become a fashion trend. It’s so super hard to find one-pieces that are both modest while still sexy and make you look young. So I have hunted down my faves and am sharing them all with you in this and the articles to come!

What about you, are you more for bikinis or for one-piece? No matter what kind you’ll choose, think about how you feel better and match it in a fashionway.

Vegetables or fruits motives for your summer outfits

Summer is a time for relaxing holidays and for long evenings spent with friends and family. It is a time to gather energy and warmth from the sun and for me there is no better way to do that than by the pool or at the beach. This year I am in Bulgaria in the wonderful St. Vlas resort – it is a holiday town located in the southern foothills of the Stara Planina Mountain, very near to the Black Sea coast. St. Vlas occupies the north part of Nessebar bay, only 10 km from the municipality center town of Nessebar, close to the largest Bulgarian seaside resort – Sunny beach.

I enjoy every day here, not only because the people and the location are great, but also because of all the friends I have here, of course without forgetting The Fashionway.

This summer everything with fruits and vegetables is a perfect goal. If you are wondering what kind of outfit to choose for the pool or the beach it is easy – 🍉 watermelon, pineapple, lemons or even peppers 🌶 motives could be great. My favorite is the watermelon, what about yours?

There is only one happiness in life: to love and be loved

Every year on February 14th, people honour their love for one another by spending time together, sending flowers and sharing Valentine’s messages of love. This day of love is a wonderful opportunity to share the love. Do it!

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.
