How to (not) pack for the weekend

I’m going away this weekend, the last time I spend more than one day away I spent the entire trip freezing (actually this has been the case the last 5 times..) lesson learned! I’m going to pack for every weather possible, rain, snow (probably not but hey you never know), beach and wind!


My current dilemma is shoes, do I want my super cute and very comfortable clogs (don’t work in rain) OR my nikes which are even more comfortable but not as cute (work in rain)… (Yes I know my problems are really big)

On my last trip I left in 30 degrees and sunshine, I only packed short dressed and cute skirts. The next day I woke up to 15 degrees and rain!! Thats what you get for not reading the weather forecast.



ps. I’m craving Birkenstocks big time!! Yes or no?


High Waisted Panties


Let’s talk panties! (Not spanks, hate spanks, I want to be able to breath!) There is nothing worse than being in a hurry, grabbing the first pair of panties you see and run out. Only to realise that you grabbed the “oh-no-I-forgott-to-throw-away” pair. That pair that gives you a camel toe, slides in to your butt, is to small, to tight.. just wrong!

Panties have to be comfortable, look good and make you feel good!

Here enters the high waisted pantie! The one that doesn’t just make you’re belly flat(er) (think about you’re best nylon tights, that make you’re butt and belly look amazing! yeah! I’m right) they go great with all you’re dresses and skirts, and about everything that involves a belt and you’re waist! THEY GIVE YOU CURVES

They make you look sexy, in a retro kind of “I love my hips and you should too” kind of way.

The only time you can’t (and I mean can’t) wear them is with you’re low rise jeans.. hello awkward underwear flashing moment
