Hello CeliaB SS17! My favourite fashion designer released her next collection, and while I think all her collections are (colour) bombs, this one is even called Spanish Bomb! and truly fulfills the expectations of this powerful title.

With this collection, the Asia-based designer Celia Bernardo returns to her Spanish roots and merges her original signature designs with spectacular ruffles and bold, colourful prints. The Latin influence is apparent in the delicate embroidery, the mesh textile and the explosive use of colours.

For the third time, CeliaB worked together with Natacha Duarte who made the prints for the collection. This time the Portuguese artists created a land of wonder where everything is possible with dreamy fantasy leafs and flowers, colourful peasants and dotted jaguars.

Celia's passionates goal for Spanish Bomb! is to bring happiness into our world and I believe who looks at the fantastic pieces can feel this immediately. Her fashion is for bold, strong women who are feminine and individual, yet playful and it's such a relieve to see something as unique as her work in a world where people tend to dress the same. It must be a lot of fun wearing those mind-blowing pieces, therefore: Yes, I want to be a Spanish Bomb!

You can shop the collection here and watch this video to find out more about CeliaB:

Glitter Boots  –  Geometric Earrings  –  Star Handbag

Yesterday, for the first time this year I felt spring approaching. I watered the plants on the balcony without freezing, and the sunrays tempted me to sit into my baby blue Acapulco chair for a few minutes. Oh yes, I anticipate the warmer weather coming back! 

Inspired by the beautiful light, I started to compose this wish list post, and I bet you are not surprised it turned out all spring-like and colourful. How I would love to wear everything together to a smashing look...

I love all my fluffy coats, but I am so so ready to put them aside till next winter. I want to wear my highest heels without fearing to slip on icy streets, and I am looking forward to fewer layers of clothes. Please, please, please sun, say you are here to stay. I‘ll do my best to pick up piece after piece of my spring wardrobe in the meanwhile to look like a sparkling rainbow when the flowers start to sprout.

Which pieces of this wish list do you like best and what are your must-have spring items?

When you return to the cloakroom of a posh restaurant after having dinner, and the lovely lady awaits you with your coat in her hands, telling you she remembers its gorgeousness, you might have done something right. Maybe you might have shopped at Selfridges. This post is not sponsored by my beloved high-end department store in London (I wish it were ;-) ), but I have to tell you a little story about what Selfridges means to me:

Years ago there used to be a design intern in London. Like most interns, the one called Sara didn't have a lot of money. Nonetheless, at weekends I loved to walk through Selfridges. I adored the more than 4000 pairs of shoes in the building, the flamboyant designer robes and of course the extraordinary windows. In the end, I always left with some tea, a few cookies or a hand cream and I was happy to have a little part of the shopping world that I loved with me. A piece of the place with the ladies wearing Chanel from head to toe, perfect makeup and expensive handbags.

A few years later it's time for an announcement: Ladies and gentleman, may I present my first major Selfridges shopping? I mean from upstairs, where the real treasures are, not from the high street section. May I present my Shrimps coat?

I was fed up with cheap and bad quality coats, I just needed a good one this year, and only the best silky faux fur could do. The happiness I feel whenever I wear it was worth every penny. Sometimes a girl just needs to treat herself!

My Outfit:
Coat: Shrimps, Bodysuit: Worlford Vintage, Skirt: H&M, Shoes: Ego,
Sunglasses: Silhouette, Bag: Vintage, Neclace: Jean Paul Gaultier x Swarovski, Earrings: Jean Paul Gaultier x Swarovski

Hello sweet tooth, are you looking for some treats or for a cute Valentine's Day pressie? Either way, you are perfectly right here, cause I am telling you about a box stuffed with the cutest sweets: The Japan Candy Box and with a little bit of luck you will soon find a box like this in your mail.

There is a lot to love about the Japan Candy Box: Starting from $18.20 the fun starts and a joyful box with eight to ten Japanese snacks and candies will be delivered to your doorstep. Shipping is free, and your box finds you, no matter where you live.

I already had a few deliveries from the lovely people at Japan Candy Box, and I was never disappointed: They arrive very reliable and never fail to excite me with their great selection of snacks, and I just love surprises.

I had ten items in my box this time; my favourites are the rose candy and the Hello Kitty marshmallows. The rose candy doesn't just taste sweet but is supposed to improve the natural fragrance of the breath and be beneficial for the skin. Can I have more, please? The only thing I didn't like was a snack that tastes of squid and wasabi. I am very grateful I googled if first, cause I really can't stand fish, eeeekkkk. But this is part of the fun and makes you feel like a brave explorer.

Now it's your turn to get a treat! Just follow the Rafflecopter below, and with a little bit of luck, you will soon receive your very own Japan Candy Box. The giveaway is open worldwide. Good luck!
