Good morning and happy April Fools' Day! Did you already prank anyone this morning? :)

Instead of an outfit post, I thought I'd turn to my readers to help me decide which of these bags I should get for my upcoming birthday. You all know how much I love my Prada bag, but after two years, I think it's about time to add a new bag to my little collection.
The Balenciaga bag is one I've been crushing on ever since I was a teenager. When I was in Paris last year, I tried on this exact model (Giant 12 Mini City in anthracite) at Le Bon Marché and the shop assistant told me that she thinks anthracite is "the most chic colour" which made me feel extra special for picking the chicest colour.
However, after spending hours on the Gucci website and visiting their store in Frankfurt, I also have fallen pretty badly for the mini shopper with bamboo handles. Such a ladylike piece - and you don't have to worry about wearout on the handles.

Which one should I get?

Which one would you pick if you were me? The bags are about the same size and price, and my mother votes for the Bal while my boyfriend prefers the Gucci. What's your opinion? I'm curious to know!

Last week was beautiful. The sun was shining every day and I could finally wear my spring coat (isn't it funny how the colour looks kind of different in every photo?). This week however, it's rather cold again and I've buried myself in books for a fifteen page paper that is due tomorrow. Anyways, here is the look from last Wednesday when we avoided the riots in the city and spent some time in our favourite park.

Love, Susann
What I'm wearing:
Coat - Oasis
Top - Morgan
Jeans - 7 for all Mankind
Bag - Prada
Shoes - Ara
Sunglasses - Karen Walker

Hey there, I know it's been a while. But my hiatus is over and I will continue posting regularly again.  Yay to that! My internship went pretty well: it was such a cool and rewarding thing to flip through the newspaper every day and see an article written by me in it. I already miss the work and wish I didn't have to go back to university next month - though I guess any student already dreads the start of the new semester, right?

Today, I want to share some current skincare favourites of mine. Have you tried any of these products before?

Love, Susann
  • Bebe Young Care - Quick & Clean cleanser. This cleanser is perfect for me since it both cleans my skin and takes off eye makeup. I always double-cleanse in the shower and I love how gentle this product is. After using this, my skin is almost squeaky-clean.
  • Origins - Drink Up Intensive Overnight Mask. I use this mask once or twice a week and the way my skin feels the next day is incredible. The lady at the Origins counter suggested to use this instead of night cream every now and then, but I prefer to do my regular skincare routine in the evening and then put on the mask right before going to sleep.
  • Nivea - Sensitive Day Cream. I already talked about this cream before in this post and it still is my ultimate favourite drugstore cream. You can get it for less than five Euros and it does amazingly well on my sensitive skin. I have tried many expensive creams (Biotherm, Shiseido, Clarins, Clinique,...) that didn't help my skin as well as this. A definite beauty secret of mine!
  • Biotherm - Aquasource Deep Serum. This stuff is awesome. As it claims, it deeply moisturizes my skin and I also think it reduces blemishes and improves my complexion. I use it in the morning and evening before putting on my moisturizer. At 50 Euros, it's rather inexpensive for a serum and really worth its money.

Hey there, did you miss me? I feel like I've neglected the blog these past few weeks, which definitely shows in my outfit recap. I've been so busy interning at a newspaper and doing my favourite job that I just don't find any time to take outfit photos. Although it probably doesn't show through the short texts I put on the blog, I love to write and it makes me so happy to get the chance to write for a living (...or at least try to make a living out of it one day).

Fashion-wise, which February look did you like most? Out of those four, I really like the look with the blue cashmere sweater.
