Autumn Look with my new Pierce Pag

Autumn Look with my new Pierce Pag

Faux fur west – Primark (old)
Jeans – HERE
Shoes – ASOS
Sunglasses – Mango
Bag – Jessica Buurmann /similar

_______________

Last week was such an exhausting week. Thankfully, we finally found time to shoot this look on Saturday.

After that, we had late breakfast and went mobile phone hunting for the babe in Frankfurt. Jan decided to go to Team Android.  Therefore he bought a Samsung Galaxy S8+ after using his iPhones since more than 6 years. I’m still thinking if I should switch too, but we’ll see. 🙂

As I have said, we drove to Frankfurt and took these pictures of my first autumn look. I wore my old faux fur west on top of my white blouse which I forgot to iron – please bear with me. Haha! I paired my grey jeans with my mules from ASOS, that looks like the Princeton Slippers from Gucci. Lastly, I threw on my new vintage sunglasses from Mango.

Now let’s move on to the most important part – my new bag.  I saw the Pierce bag the first time by J.W.Anderson and quickly fell in love. But it was out of reach for me because I don’t wanted to spend so much money for a trendy bag. When I found out that Jessica Buurman had the same one for a much lower price point and great quality, I couldn’t resist. 🙂  Jessica Buurman is an online shop where you can order designer lookalikes for great quality and a hella low price. You should definitely check their page out. Also, you will receive 10 % on your first order, so rush! I ordered my bag last month and it took very long to arrive in Germany.

By the way, the Pierce bag is available in 3 colors and is made out of leather. And this particular one is named ‘Elise bag’ on their page.

What do you guys think of my new bag?

See you in my next post!

Simple Pho Chay Recipe

Simple Pho Chay Recipe

Today I wanted to share with you my own version of making vegetarian Pho soup aka Pho Chay. As the days are getting colder and we have welcomed September, I thought why not share one of my favorite soups.

Please keep in mind, that this dish is inspired by a Vietnamese cuisine and this is the way I love making my own soup.

Pho Chay is the vegetarian or vegan version from Pho Bo. Pho means soup in Vietnamese and Chay stands for vegetables.

As you might know, I always try to keep my recipes short and quick.

Ingredients for Pho Chay 2 p.

3x cloves

2x star anise

1 teaspoon of cinnamon

1x big onion

1 thumb sized ginger

2-3 x pak choi

1 liter of vegetable stock

1 teaspoon of soy sauce

lastly, some cilantro, spring onions, Thai chili, sprouts and Thai basil

Instructions for the Pho Chay

1.First of all put the spices ( anise star, cloves and cinnamon) in the heated pot and roast it a bit.

2. After that throw in the halved onions and ginger and roast them with the spices together until the color turns.

3. Then add in 1 liter of vegetable stock water and let the broth cook with the other ingredients.

4. Now it is time to throw in the vegetables that you like – my choice: pak choi & carrots

5. Season the broth with soy sauce and let the broth simmer for 15 minutes. After that remove the spices, ginger and onions out of the broth.

6. At this same time cook your rice noodles according to the package instruction.

7. After that take a separate plate where I add my favorites vegetables like Asian basil, sprouts, Thai chili, spring onions and cilantro.

8. The final & fun part: take a bowl and put in your cooked noodles, herbs and pour in your yummy broth and enjoy!

I hope you like this Pho Chay recipe and if you do, please leave a comment.

P.S. Don’t forget to serve the Pho Chay with hoisin and sriracha sauce!!

Hello September – I can’t believe that in 4 months we’ll say hello to 2018. The time went way too fast for my liking 😉

Last weekend we shot this look. This time I kept it very simple if you compare it to my last outfit.

I have been loving the minimalist and monochromic look. My understanding of the whole minimalistic style is only combining 2-3 colors. The main colors are black and white. If you want to add colors to your minimalistic outfit, I would recommend a forest green, dark red and any blue tones. All those colors work perfectly with black and white

Now let’s head back to my outfit: For this look, I chose a basic black dress that I dressed up with my striped blouse. Right now, I’m a sucker for everything that has stripes. I think I will wear things with stripes until I die – haha, no I’m just kidding ;-). And the only colors besides black and white, that I added to my outfit is my green mule shoes, which I really love because they are so comfortable. Trust me!

As you can see, I had no makeup on. Therefore, I put on sunglasses, so that I look more put together. I think that sunglasses always give an outfit a “fashionable taste”. Don’t you think the same?

By the way, I’m still experimenting with my own personal look. Because on the one hand I love the minimalistic, monochromic vintage esque look, but on the other hand I enjoy colorful and trendy colors/looks. So please don’t be surprised about the upcoming fashion posts!

I hope you like the post, feel free to leave a comment and please tell me if you are battling with your own personal style. 🙂
