Adore Me

Macie Contour by Adore Me
 
Living in the blogging world, more and more we do care about our looks.
The development of technology in the form of gadgets boost even very little thing as the most important thing. We pose (most of the time lately; selfie), tap our phones and post it online in immediately. On the next second, the photo participates in many platforms waiting for likes.
More and more we care about our clothes, shoes, bags, not to mention manicure pedicure.
But how about underneath those clothes?
Do we also care about the garment beneath our dresses, which is known as underwear?

Summer with Loose Fit Jumpsuit

Jumpsuit: Zara, Bag: Marc by Marc Jacobs, Sunglasses: Tom Ford
How's summer treating you so far?
Perhaps this is one of the most unforgettable summer I've ever had since I am living in Switzerland (it's been nine years already!). Most of summers I have spent here were sort of cloudy but this year summer shows its own power! Of course it is sooooo warm, it's not often I am suffering during the heat. However I feel also blessed since it's been a while there were no proper temperature here in Switzerland (no offense!)

Hot Stuffs During Heat Wave

Don't we all love summer?
Warm weather, breeze is teasing your skin between light fabric, longer days with BBQ, swimming plus cocktails, everyone seems have better mood and 'reborn'.

But do we all love these with heat wave? Luckily I'm still survive.
Switzerland is boiling, people!
Couple of days ago the temperature reached 38 degrees. I mean, 38 degrees Celcius in the shades.
I even heard that the thermometer by Lake of Zurich once reached 49 degrees Celcius. I myself (and of course Rania) prefer to stay at home. It's cooler to be at home when it is almost impossible to wear well.. basically everything.

Another thing which is also attacking now: Sale!
Gosh, I wouldn't be able to stop to write about this topic :o) Perhaps some of you ever read about one of my summer sale catch here.
Until now I have bought some cool stuffs, I really can't wait to share with you all.
But in this kind of weather, I do not only need regular stuffs but HOT STUFFS!
Hot because they are nice. Hot because they are on sale!
Okay I have to admit that instead of straying around under the impossible heat, I have spent my time browsing sale items.
The result?
I can't even decide which item I shall pick!

This year I find there are so many possiblities to look trendy. Lately am in the mood for color block dresses, stripes, tropical prints/colors and cute jewellery. Let me share you some items below.
What do you think of these picks? Which one is your favorite?

MY HEART IS JUMPING WITH THE JUMPSUIT!

I bet you guys enjoyed summer's warmth during weekend!
Who's agree with me that there is nothing better than nice warm summer?
In this time of the year I could wear something light and open sandals. Carrying the whole layers from down jacket until heavy boots every winter made me feel so bulky!

Jumpsuit& Belt: Ted Baker similar here and here, Sandals: Navyboot similar here, here and here,

The weather during weekend was so disappointing.
We wanted to go to Chilbi (folk festival) by the lake and had to cancel due to bad weather *sigh*.
I thought after such lovely weather lately there won't be sombre summer.
But it happened.

Random Thoughts

Dress: H&M, Shoes: Högl, Bag: Marc by Marc Jacobs, Necklace: FiliNi

Today I do not share fashion post, the photos are from our day trip to Brunnen. Unfortunately Rania was sleeping almost the whole trip, we didn't have chance to capture the moments.
 
I have some thoughts lately.
I realize that the last two years I was too busy working.
Sometimes I worked long hours in December when we have renewal period for the clients or when I have to do business trips preparation for my boss.
My social life at that time was only to meet my friends for coffee, maybe sometimes lunch.
After long hours at the office, I slept long on the weekend.

Reveal Your Aura

Dress: Minimum, Vintage Belt: No Name, Pumps: Navyboot, Clutch: Chloé, Nails: Essie Big Spender
On Saturday was my first going out after the delivery.
It happened because my sister was here on the weekend and she wanted to meet her friends in Zurich. Since she doesn't know Zurich so well, so I accompanied her.

Blame It on Biker Jacket

Biker Jacket: Street One, Dress: Jacqueline de Yong, Statement Necklace: Maliparmi
Belt: bought in Turkey, Bag: Zara, Pumps: Salvatore Ferragamo
Nails: O.P.I. Tickle My France-y, Lips: L'Oreal Infallible Mega Gloss Flash Dance 208
Photos by Stephanie
 
It's been a while that I would like to try to wear biker jacket.
Frankly spoken, I was not a fan of biker jacket, I find it's too masculine for me. I've never felt motivated to have this item, simply because:
1. Mostly the color is black, black and black.
2. It's not so easy to find biker jacket which doesn't make the impression as if I'm joining motorbike club.

Diary of A Doubtful New Mother : Mother's Day Edition


Moments on my 9th month pregnancy
Dress: Marc New York by Andrew Marc, also adore this and this
Pumps: Navyboot, also love this and this, Mantel: Hallhuber, similar here (on sale!) also adore this
Note: These pictures were taken during my 9th month pregnancy by my dear friend Stephanie.
 
There are several days in a year that could move my emotion so deeply. This year another two days made this list longer which are; my daughter Rania's birthday and Mother's Day.
Both days remind me of how hard it is to be a mother.
Sometimes I couldn't believe that I am officially a mother. Not because I am not happy to become one, but I can't believe that I have the honour to receive such a beautiful bless.

Casual Vibe at Le Petit Commerce

It's raining outside while I'm writing this post.
I know water is good for the earth but right now I wish I could build an automatic button where I can simply push it... et voilà I'll be in some place else. The theme travel is often visiting my brain lately.
Perhaps because I know I cannot travel so much this year.
 
Looking at rain drops hitting the ground and wind chime is making soft sound played by the wind. The weather makes me bored and also hungry.
Yes, very hungry.
The train of thoughts take me to the place called Le Petit Commerce.

Tube Top: gift from sister, also adore this and this

Throwback Monday

Dress: Dept, Stola: Leonardo, Statement Necklace: Hallhuber, Floppy Hat: Zara, Bag: Love Moschino, Belt:bought in Turkey
When I looked shortly on my agenda, we are almost facing May.
Mother's Day is coming!
This will be my first Mother's Day, it feels so strange somehow but I am happy to be able to experience this special occasion.

I recall the moments of my pregnancy. To me, it can't be described, it can only be experienced.
Those memories seem like pages without form inside of my head and dragged me into throwback.

Purchase of the Day: Ras Flats

As the sun goes brighter, so as my mood!
This is the phase where I feel my heart gets warmer from seeing the shining days. Coming from tropical country, warm days are the thing that I miss in winter. Although this winter was not so tragically cold, but I look forward to wear light clothes and slip my feet into open shoes and flats.

Flats: Ras, Nail Polishes: Nars Jungle Red & Chanel 579 Paparazzi, Statement Necklace: FiliNi, Sunglasses: Escada

When In Istanbul

Colorful lamps in Grand Bazaar Istanbul
Spoiler Alert: This post contains a lot of photos!
 
Lately I am longing for vacations. This is the phase when my heart says, "Let's escape somewhere!"
Unfortunately real life doesn't always synchronize with what heart says. I need to adapt with this new life as a mom, new situations (mostly very unpredictible) and in August I will start to work again after maternity leave. A lot of things to learn instead of vacations.
 
Yesterday I was looking at our photos in Istanbul. That feeling strikes me again. I wish I could go somewhere outside of Switzerland. Even to visit my sister in Germany sounds so exotic to me. Trust me, it is that chronical. So I am writing this post as a self-remedy :o)

Time flies. I do agree with this statement.
Talking about time, I haven't posted quite long. I really wanted to post more often, to write and being productive as I did a few years back then. There were times when I was writing literally every day and I do miss those good old days!

In Memory Of



The picture above is the remembrance of my beloved parents.
I have no words to describe how sad it felt when my parents passed away.
One after the other, within eleven months.
Afterwards, there were phase in my life when I felt great emptiness. As if I was walking around with huge hole in my head. When I heard those news, I couldn't feel the ground beneath my feet. Nothing in this world tore my heart apart like losing my parents.

BREAKFAST AT "LE PAIN DE LA BOURSE"

This post is about nice memory from my trip to Paris with J.
We visited Paris before we got married. It was our first holiday together. Unfortunately it was very short and bad weather. It was raining and windy, very annoying because we couldn’t see many nice spots there. 
 
Oh Paris!

The Gift From God



It was at 3 o'clock in the morning on 24th January when I woke up suddenly from my deep sleep.
Such a great pain attacked my body, especially the tummy area, where my baby were. It was so painful, I sat immediately on the side of the bed.
J, my husband, woke up and asked whether everything is fine.
"I think I'm having contractions."

ALEXANDER WANG X H&M

I am not a sporty person.
Okay, there is no doubt about this statement. Everyone who deals with me on the daily basis knows this factoid very well.

Ever since I am pregnant, I feel more concern about the well being of my baby and myself. I would like to eat healthier, would like to exercise my body. Everything is for the sake of my baby.
Recently I signed up for pregnancy yoga class.
Perhaps this is a huge step in my life. Some of you might laugh, since the exercise that I did in my life before my pregnancy was only rocking on the dance floor. This is definitely not exercise, considering the number of glasses that I've consumed contain alcohol.
