Hey guys, todays blog entry is pretty unusual. I have been wanting to do a list of my favorite things for quite a while. When we had to pack our bags for Portugal, I encountered the same old problem: what should I bring?!?!?! And as always I packed way to much, ending up only using the same 5 items and deeply regretting not having brought other stuff such as my hand fan and my favorite hat. So with this list I want to introduce you to my 9 favorite objects I do not want to miss anymore. It took me quite a while to find some of them such as my hamamista towel and the swimsuit. Lucky me, I have an amazing boyfriend and the sweetest friends, who know me so well, they just keep supplying me with some really awesome stuff. So, what are your favorite items this summer?
– MY 9 FAVORITE ITEMS SUMMER 2015-
1. ASOS CAMELLIA FLORAL PRINT SWIMSUIT
I am a bathing suit virgin, so it took me several orders to find the perfect beach wear. Thank god I finally did. I fell in love with this amazing piece. It’s so comfortable and I feel pretty in it. You can order it here.
Isn’t this the coolest bag ever?! My dear friend Katrin is an incredibly talented bag designer, you can order her designs soon. Feel free to ask for a canvas or fake leather option. So stay tuned for more information. Thank you girl <3
Handcrafted Jewelry from Dunger Design. I love how awesome my boyfriends gifts always are. I just love receiving gifts. This neckless is made of wood and organic wood resin. Inspired by the self-healing of trees. It’s lightweight, its pastel and its natural.
4. POWDERED SUNSHINE
I have never been a fan of „traditional“ sunscreens, I don’t like the smell and I don’t like how it makes my skin feel. Lush has some really good options, this one is my favorite right now. What a damn smart invention. Lets say you wanna go for a run, or you are invited to a picnic, the sun is burning but you don’t want an oily sticky film on your skin then I totally recommend Powdered Sunshine, it’s a light loose powder with a shimmering tone. So cool. I just love it, and not just because I am a proud lushie myself.
My amazing friend Ariadne got me this booklet for christmas. She knows me so well and this was the right gift at the right time. Writing liberates your mind, and you get to be creative. Whenever I have an idea, I write it down. It’s filled with crazy ideas and personal discoveries I have made about mankind.
6. LEOPOLD GRENADILL
Leopold has classical alignment and is very extravagant and aristocratic. Kerbholz makes great accessories for a good price. Handmade lightweight sunglasses made of natural blackwood. I have always had difficulties finding glasses, not this time. We immediately clicked.
7. WOODEN HAND FAN
This one has been my friend for many years. When I was 15 a Chinese exchange student got me some gifts when he went home for Christmas. It’s wooden, it’s beautiful, it’s life-saving. Of course you can buy the exact same product on amazon.
8. VINTAGE SUN HAT
Carina, my sweetheart, found this lovely hat in her apartment. We love to exchange things and go to flea markets together. So I tried it on, it worked and it has become one of my most important items in summer. Don’t need no more sunstroke. If you haven’t found yourself a hat friend yet, keep searching!
I just love hamamista. Their towels are to die for. So soft, so comfortable, so light-weight, so pretty, so versatile. It is a hand woven turkish cotton towel which you can use as a beach towel, scarf, blanket – whatever you need, hamamista is gonna be there for you.
