But thats not the only bad news:

Review: Shangri-La Hotel Paris

My husband and me recently took a three-day shopping trip to Paris and decided to treat ourselves to a special accomodation.

The Shangri-La Hotel is a 5-star belle-époque palace with the absolute best views of the Eiffel Tower and it was once the home of Napoleon’s grand-nephew, Prince Roland Bonaparte, who lived here until his death in 1924. For the hotel opening in 2010 every small detail of Prince Bonaparte’s home has been meticulously restored which makes you feel like visiting royalty. I love hotels that are authentic in their design, and like the Mercer Hotel in Barcelona, which I visited last May, the Shangri-La is a perfect example of a hotel that honors its building’s history.

Dear all,

I´d like to thank you for your kind words, messages and sweet gifts that have reached me within the past week. Me and the little one are now at home and slowly getting used to our new life together. While I am currently very busy with nursing and taking care of the baby, things on the blog will hopefully be back to normal in a few weeks :-)

Pregnancy Does Not Come Easy…

76 days ago dash Baby, Lifestyle
baby-outfit

… does it? These past few days have been such a major struggle that I wish for nothing more than this sweet little baby to come out of my belly and this maternity to be over. Ever since last Wednesday, I suddenly felt a huge pain in my lower back and pelvis due to the pressure that comes from my dropping belly and the baby´s weight. I am not exaggerating when I say that I haven´t slept in over five days, a situation that leads me (a usually very open-minded & friendly person and a positive thinker) to be in the worst mood ever, disliking everyone and everything around me and crying whenever I get the chance! Well, now I know why sleep deprivation is a method of torture…

However, until I am able to shoot another outfit for you guys, I thought it would be nice make another baby- and pregnancy-related blog entry:

2014 – A Year In Review

84 days ago dash Baby, My Outfits, News & Trends

To me, 2014 is one of the most exciting years ever. I have seen, felt and experienced so many things that it seems as if time has somehow just flown by. At the beginning of 2014, I would have never imagined that today, a year later, I would be pregnant with my first child and being so close to my due date.

Nevertheless, I am more than thankful for everything that has happenend within the past months, and today, I would like to give you a little overview of some of my favorite moments:

Outfit: The Hermès Kelly Bag

92 days ago dash My Outfits

Today´s outfit post is all about the newest addition to my little handbag family. It was a very lucky surprise (and coincidence), but last week I had the chance to be offered this fabulous and oh so classy bag – and of course I could not turn down the offer. The Hermès Kelly bag, one of the most iconic and famous bags ever, is very hard to come by, especially in black, and I am more than happy to finally be the proud owner of such a wonderful investment piece.

The cashmere sweater that I am wearing in this pictures is actually a mini dress – but since my belly won´t stop growing, it is currently one of the very few items in my closet that I can still wear. For a more casual approch, I styled my H&M maternity jeans and some very comfortable Chanel ankle boots.

Btw, did any of you shop the big sales at Net-a-PorterMytheresaStylebopLuisa Via Roma and Co.?

Cashmere sweater: Stefanel (loving this or this one, both on sale)

Jeans: H&M Maternity (regular version here)

Ankle Boots: Chanel (similar model here)

Jewelry: Hermès & Dior

Handbag: Hermès (this Fendi-bag is a stunner as well)

Outfit: Cozy Cashmere & A Huge Baby Bump

101 days ago dash Baby, My Outfits

The heading says it all: My bump has gotten huge within this past week! I was so lucky because my belly wasn´t that big and I could even fit into some of my regular (non maternity) tops, but ever since last Sunday it has grown so much that I have almost nothing left to wear. Well, I read that the baby will increase 1 kilo in weight during the last month of the pregnancy – and since I still have a few weeks left, I am guessing that my body´s circumference will grow as well :-)

Coat: Moncler (similar one here)

Sweater: Massimo Dutti (old, loving this or this one)

Jeans: H&M Maternity (regular version here)

Hat & Scarf: COS & Jardin des Orangers

Shoes: Uterque (sold out, find a similar version here or here)

Handbag: Louis Vuitton SC Bag

Lipgloss: Dior Addict Fluid Stick (color “Wonderland”)

Eye shadow: Givenchy Ombre Couture No. 05 Taupe Velours

Last week I spent some wonderful days in Paris, my favorite city in the world. We opted for the famous and luxurious Shangri-La Hotel (the only place where you can have breakfast on your terrace and enjoy the beauty of the Eiffel tower), ate some of the most delicious foods and I even scored the bag of my dreams at Hermès. For those of you that don´t follow me on Instagram, here´s a little summary of what I have been up to:

Gender Reveal: It´s A …

Dearest readers,

I have to admit that I hesitated quite a bit to reveal my baby´s gender before birth. As I am a bit superstitious and always like to be on the “safe side” with everything, I wasn´t really sure to whether or not let you know if we were expecting a girl or boy…
