11 Howard

11 Howard

Welcome to 11 Howard! This weekend, me and M checked in one of the hippest hotels in Manhattan. Over this short stay, we got to enjoy the neighborhood and explore deeper the realms of this great area (which you can also see here). We lived a true tourist-weekend, hoping over from wine to cocktail, dinner to window shopping. We started by checking in and were greeted in the warmest way....

20 Things You Might Not Know About Me, And…

20 things you might not know about me

That is absolutely correct! There’s a celebration going on throughout this day, week and month. I Life You turns 3! My baby can already talk, walk, stand straight and even curse sometimes. I don’t want to elongate myself on how proud I am to have been doing this for the past 3 years, even though recently it’s a bit on the quiet side. I’m working hard on bringing you the...

Nothing Like I’ve Ever Done Before

nothing like I've ever done before

If you follow me on Instagram, you might’ve seen a change in scenery and palette. After months of debating if I was coming home for my mother’s 60th birthday, on the last possible day, I decided to come. I crossed the idea off my mind for some time. It was a subject of great sadness to be missing another key moment in my family’s array. Her birthday was this past...

Wedding Season Series – Get Dressed With Zara

wedding season

I guess one of the best and worst season’s of the year is wedding season. Even though weddings are happening all year long, spring time usually puts a new paragraph on it. And everyone starts to freak out a bit. Ever since the new year burst, a lot of my friends started looking for the perfect outfit. And so did I. In theory, I have 3 weddings this year. Wedding season...

Dress Two Impress This Spring

dress two impress

When I decided to take a break from blogging, I cocooned into a research mode. It was accidental but I found inspiration in my favorite blogs, websites, newsletters and Pinterest. To cut a long story short, I’m going to start changing things around here and trying out different layouts and posts. Things were getting a bit stiff and, again, my creativity needed a break. I’m starting to share these sorts of...

The First Monday In May

first Monday in May

I had this totally different post planned for today. It’s been a two-week long coming and I don’t know how to put my thoughts eloquently enough. It’s been a hard past few months and this weekend I was hit with something I wasn’t expecting. Something that makes you question how big your problems are, compared. But let’s start from the beginning. The first few months of a new year are always...

Got That Sunshine In My Yellow Dress

yellow dress

Whenever the weather starts to get better, I feel like the ultimate cliché. I start to wear bright and bold colors, pastels and white/cream. It’s the best way to acknowledge that spring is here and the cold, harsh days are behind. After experimenting with this trend here, I immediately became a fan. It’s such a great way to transition dresses into spring. Especially when you feel like you resemble a...

Wearing Heels For Tea and a Chocolate Croissant

Wearing Heels

A few weeks back, my husband woke up and said he wanted to treat me to breakfast. It was early in the morning, we both got dressed quickly (I wore this outfit the previous day) and off we went. I normally stick to granola and yogurt, oatmeal or some toasted bread, but we were in a mood for chocolate croissant. A danger early in the day but hey, I haven’t...

The Empties – Or What Beauty Products I’ve Been Using Non-Stop #2


A couple of months ago, I wrote a post about beauty empties. Or what beauty products I’ve been using non-stop. I’m thinking about turning it into a series. I love to let you guys know about things I’ve been using, re-purchasing, or not. It’s something I look for in other blogs – and Eva Chen sometimes does a great empties roundup. Let me know in the comments if that’s something you’d...

All Black and a Vintage Looking Coat

167 all black and vintage coat-01

This was the first outing of this vintage looking coat. You might’ve already seen it here, here and here. It’s been on rotation lately and not for it’s warm qualities but because it’s such a great looking piece. The structure of the coat is amazing as is the pattern and color combination. These were taken on a very sunny day in SoHo. Me and M went out for lunch and...
