i have been promising this post for such a long time now and i am so so happy i finally found the time to shoot this little video for you. ever since i moved back from milan i have been investing a lot of time in re-furnishing my walls a bit, trowing some old stuff out and adding some new things. with some time i’ll take some other videos of the rest of my apartment, but here’s the start: my bedroom!

ps: the wonderful mint plaid is from zalando home (just as everything else on the bed!).

you might remember this post from 2011 that actually marked my LAST REAL HOLIDAY! apart from the fact that me complaining about not going on a real holiday is a major first world problem, i really do miss the beach and recharging my batteries.
a few days back, the bf and i finally made the decision on where to go this summer and we decided on something fairly close but still far enough to have a feeling of being detached from all the work waiting for us back home. we decided to go to CORSICA! we’ll be taking the car from milan, then corsica ferries from savona and then cruise around the island for two weeks, including a camping tent and NO laptop (this will be true heaven for me). for the flight from vienna to milan we ended up getting a good deal via cuponation, who offers amazing deals on flights, hotels and much more. win a 50€ TUI voucher now by signing up for the give-away below, which ends thursday july 18th. all you have to do is:

as you a few days back was my 24th birthday which i celebrated on a lake in austria’s south, with some family and friends. a few days before, my aunt gave me this amazing scent for my birthday: guerlain’s “la petite robe noire”.
normally i am very, very attached to my all time favorite narciso rodriguez, but this little babe has made it to the top collection and i have been using it like crazy ever since it joined the collection. one of the next ones i’d like to try? CK Fragrance Eternity, it’s supposed to be as glamurous and flowery as this one!


there’s some things that you see and within a nanosecond you decide you need them. for me this was the case with this daniel wellington watch. i have never been into watches but this one broke the spell: clean, timeless (great wordplay, eh?) and works with EVERY outfit. i got mine from 21diamonds and already thinking about getting the one with the colored straps… oops. PS! there’s a discount code for you! just use “DARIADARIA” when checking out on 21diamonds and save 15%!
