Spring look | Casual in the city

It all happened very quickly: I quit my toxic job, I flew to Istanbul, I spent a week in Spain, I started a new job and I moved in to a new flat. All of this happened in a record time of 1 month. I do genuinely look forward to sharing about this process with you on the blog as soon as I settle down and I go back to my one post per week routine.

 

Mind the Shoes - London fashion look

 

With all the packing and the changes, I have just finally managed to give myself a little two hours break at the new flat, while I am enjoying a very inspiring view of London from my new living room with a hot chocolate.

How do I find inspiration for my blog posts

In order to start this post I’d like to hold your hand and take you with me back in time, when I was a student at university. My major was translation and, as young little apprentices, my classmates and I had to translate quite a few scientific articles during our second and third year at university. It was at some point then, that I was reading some random science article that stated our best ideas come to us when our minds are relaxed. Call it in a pub surrounded by friends, during bath time, before falling asleep or even while practising a sport.

 

This was a life changing moment for me. Why? Because ever since that moment I always carry around a notebook everywhere, just in case. You can call me crazy notebook lady all you want, but I never ran out of ideas ever since.

The absolute must have for this fall season

Hi everyone,

 

I hope you are having a great week so far!

Checked blazers have become a must have this autumn: there is not a time I’m scrolling through Instagram and I don’t see at least one blogger wearing the classic topper. Celebrities such as Cara Delevingne, Kourtney Kardashian and Bella Hadid have decided to embrace this trend and have, indeed, been spotted with this fall’s must have piece.

A little pause

Hi everyone,

How are you? I hope you are having a nice week so far!

I have so much to share with you this month, especially after reorganizing my photo-shoots and spending an entire weekend taking photographs of Rome.

 

So far, November seems to be a happy month, full of inspiration. And if I’m being completely honest with you, it has been an exhausting month too. I have travelled, I have been studying quite a lot, I kept working at my full time job, I’ve been working on Mind the Shoes’ side projects and, of course, I had my sister visiting for a week.

 

I needed to take a little break this week, have a rest and enjoy some London alone time. (By the way, have you ever thought of going to the cinema on your complete own? I feel like dating the city, just like Carrie Bradshaw did in Sex and the City.)

 

Today’s about a very basic outfit I wore for a Sunday brunch in South Kensington, about two weeks ago.
