{SHOPPING} CHECK PRINT COAT: MY FAVOURITE SELECTION

If you are like me, one coat is not enough to go through the cold days, all day, every day.. but there is a print I am never getting tired of, the check print coat. The coat is the centrepiece of our winter wardrobe. It’s the item we end up wearing the most during the winter season. So, why the xxx would we only wear one!

The check print coat was already a big trend last spring but now it is coming back as a must have in our closets. Whether it is a stylish blazer or a winter coat, it got my attention already! I’d say, get at least one check print piece in your wardrobe because this season belongs to this pattern!

The thing I also love about a check print coat, it’s that it just looks amazing in any possible way. You can dress it up and down and you can easily combine it with anything else in your wardrobe. If you are wearing an evening look, it adds some sophistication, and if you wear it, like me, with sneakers, adds a touch of playfulness.

Don´t be afraid to invest in a proper check print coat because it is one of the most timeless and basic pieces you can have in your wardrobe. It will always find the way to come back as a big trend, so make space in your wardrobe and keep it there.

This is my favourite selection available to buy online at the moment:

{SHOPPING} TEDDY COAT: MY FAVOURITE SELECTION

If you, like me, can’t bear the cold, you are in for the most snuggly coat of the season, the teddy coat!

The most oversized, the best.. and in general, a teddy coat is definitely one of the most desired piece available out there! I know, it looks quite massive, as it is about a size larger than a coat you would normally buy, but it looks so cool!

A teddy coat is not just a trendy piece, but also it keeps you warm and cosy. I love this trend as it is a great alternative to my other beloved classic coats. It’s easy to style and I love to combine it with neutral colours such as black, white or grey.

It´s a must have investment in your winter wardrobe!

Here is my selection of best teddy coats of this season, currently in stock:

THE BEST THING ABOUT MY NEW BEDROOM

Here we are with the third appointment about my new house! (See the previous interior posts here, in case you missed them!).

After a couple of weeks of deciding how to decorate my new bedroom I believe it is finally time to share some pictures with you. I am always spending considerable time deciding every detail, so the house decoration is not going very fast. But I really enjoy taking our time in doing this, considering we have a whole life to spend in here!! 😉

Our first floor is mainly white.. white wooden floors, doors and white walls. My main goal is to keep the bedroom simple but at the same time stylish and first of all, choosing a good quality, comfort mattress was my main concern.

That’s why I chose Eve Sleep!

Not only for the mattress, but also the bed frame and linen sheets are from Eve Sleep. When I found out I could sort out the whole bed situation just from one brand I was so nicely impressed!

The first thing that always popped up my mind when thinking about my bedroom was definitely the type and quality of the mattress. It is probably the most fundamental and basic item for your new place. I tried so many different mattresses in my life but the one from Eve Sleep won. It is soft enough and super comfortable with such firmness level that makes it just right.

The grey bed frame is simple but gives a chic touch to the bedroom. It was super easy to put it together but at the same time the quality is still high. You wouldn’t believe how short time it took me to do it all without any struggle. And it looks amazing!!

I think you have to treat bedding as another design piece in your bedroom. I picked white and grey colors that matched perfectly with the whole room. The Eve Sleep bedding I picked is made of linen and gives you a soft feeling, which makes me want to go sleep early every night (haha).

As a final touch I filled up the bedroom with green plants making the room cozy and warm. I think plants always put a bit of life in any room of your house. To create extra cosines I added few candles and decorations here and there. They always add more atmosphere to the room especially during the winter season. I am still on the hunt for antique bedside tables and prints to hang to the wall.. so stay tuned for some decorations update very soon!!

THROWBACK TO IBIZA WITH GIN MARE

Winter just started in Amsterdam, but it feels like summer left us ages ago already. This makes me go back to some amazing memories of this summer. One of the best travels (if not the best) was definitely my trip to Ibiza last September with Gin Mare and a group of fellow Dutch influencers.

You can imagine how excited I was when this premium Mediterranean gin brand invited me to spend three days in Ibiza. We stayed at Vila Mare which was absolutely gorgeous with the most breathtaking sea view. Gin Mare is all about the Mediterranean spirit so the main idea of this trip was to enjoy the easy going Mediterranean lifestyle. And sure we did!

You know I am Italian, so this type of summer days, enjoying the sun, the good food and the slow life path in good company are not new to me 😉

I loved all the activities the Gin Mare team organised for us. My absolute favourite was doing yoga by the infinity pool. It was absolutely amazing and relaxing! Can you think of a better place for yoga other than outside in Ibiza with a breathtaking view?

The entire trip was in the sign of delicious food and great drinks, which are very characteristic for the Ibiza’s lifestyle. The botanical flavour of Gin Mare perfectly highlighted the taste of the Mediterranean food, a must to try!!

On the second day, Gin Mare organized an amazing workshop that was happening by the pool. How cool, right? Gin is my favorite drink so I was super excited to learn how to prepare various cocktails with a little food pairing. My absolute winner was Gin Mare with oysters. A perfect combo of refreshing Mediterranean flavours!

After this fun workshop we had dinner at fancy HEART Ibiza with the Gin Mare‘s team. Fantastic food and entertainment made it an amazing evening!!

The rest of the time we spent relaxing by the incredible pool and having breath taking views of the sea. We had loads of fun with the girls and I couldn’t wish to be with a better squad.

Thank you Gin Mare for a dream trip! Till next summer..

HOW TO SCORE A DESIGNER BAG FOR LESS

It’s no secret I have a sweet-tooth for a good designer bag and my wish list always looks like a never ending story. But for many of us, spending the equivalent of a month’s rent on a bag remains a serious investment and of course, the bags we love the most, hardly go on sale.

Still, there are ways to save a bit of cash on our major designer bag purchases!

  nickyinsideout - designer bag - rebelle - balenciaga bazar - pre owned - pre loved designer bag  

Of course we can use some tricks to save up a little percentage on the full price of the designer bag we fall in love with. Tricks like shopping on sites that are based in Europe to save import and tax duties or considering an unusual colour which most probably will be part of some seasonal sales.

Instead, what I find the most effective, is buying from an authentic second hand source, like I did for this Balenciaga Bazar on Rebelle.

I’ve really enjoyed shopping on Rebelle, the site is very neat, it’s easy to shop, full on useful information and most important, it immediately gave me the idea I was going to spend my money on a safe website! I’ve surfed the site a lot before deciding on this Balenciaga (even if it was already on my top 3!), just out curiosity!;)

On Rebelle you can save major money! more than 70% sometimes, if you’re willing to invest in a pre-owned bag. What’s best than shopping on a website that offers all the designer brands you can think of, for guaranteed authentic purses that are in great conditions? I already have my eyes on a vintage Dior I also found on Rebelle! So, as you can see, the wish list is really never ending!! 😉

Finally, Rebelle is committed with a great cause which is helping girls in developing countries! You can help by donating your preloved designer pieces but also by shopping this very cool ‘Rebelle with a cause’ t-shirt and spreading the word on social media by using the #rebellewithacause.
