the 18th district: June 2013

Hi Guys, 
as some of you might know, Google Reader is shutting down from the 1st of July and as from that date, you will lose the list of blogs you follow. I personally started to use Bloglovin’ already a few years ago, as most of you, but for those of you who don’t, you can easily transfer the list of all the blogs you already follow so you don’t miss out.
Here is how you can import all the blogs you love and follow from Google Reader to Bloglovin'.
Don't forget to follow THE18THDISTRICT  ;) !!!!

Share the love and follow me on :

Ciao a tutti! From Verona with love ♡

Ciao a tutti!
 Last weekend we spent a wonderful weekend getaway in Verona, one of Italy's most beautiful and I dare to say Italy's most romantic city . 
The home of Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet and its vast roman amphitheater which became famous through Giuseppe Verdi's opera performances and for being the world's largest open-air opera venue.
Verona has so many beautiful and unique places to offer, but I'm going to show you the most important and must-sees.
The city's most famous square, (beside the square in front of the arena) is the Piazza delle Erbe. Here the city's long history as an affluent trading location is revealed in brick and stone. Palaces, merchants' houses, towers and statues stand in dumb, stationery tribute to more than 2 000 years of  business, while visitors sit at cafés and enjoy the view of the madding crowd.

One of this season's trends is the combination of black & white. 
Do we always have to follow trends? Well, that's the question ...... ;) 
Normally I'd answer... no, I don't need to follow each and every trend. I actually only follow trends that I really like and feel confident wearing. This season there are quite a lot of trends I really like, so why not combine them in one look ? And that's exactly what I did ...
I matched a black & white striped blouse with a translucent bag, sporty leather shorts, mirrored sunglasses and (to top it all off) studded chucks.

I ❤ my ''Dirndl''

 Last Saturday we were invited to a traditional austrian wedding, meaning that the dress code was ''Tracht'' ( ''Dirndl'' & ''Lederhose''). I was more than happy about this dress code, as this was the perfect occasion to get a new customized dirndl made. I chose three different kind of fabrics for my dress, for the corsage I chose a green silk with little dots, for the skirt a floral one and for the apron a pink tussah silk. My dirndl definitely is a modern version of a traditional austrian dirndl, so I paired it with glitter heels, a golden reticule and my mirrored Ray-Ban aviators, which I think matched perfectly;) 
Ps: I caught the bridal bouquet, but was so flabbergasted in that moment that I just passed it on to another lady standing next to me ;)

 Finally a new outfit post. 
Some of my followers on Instagram might have seen one of these picture already. I chose this outfit for dinner a few day ago, this post is the proof that I'm really a blogger from the bottom of my heart, as we took the pictures for this post after a tough training and a 22.5 km run. 
***special thanks to my boyfriend for taking the pictures and supporting me <3 

Well, that's also the cue to talk about the fitness section of my blog. In the past few weeks I received a lot of emails and comments of people asking me about my diet, training, how I stay in shape, and stating that it would be great if I could share my workout routine and recipes. 
As you might have noticed already, I'm a fitness freak and couldn't live without my workouts. A healthy lifestyle, including workouts and healthy food are the essentials for a better living, for me.
You are what you eat and you have a choice of what you are made of ;) 
I'm going to start my fitness section with regular updates on my diet, workouts and healthy yummy recipes. As summer is here and we all want to look fit and feel confident on the beach, I'm planning to share short fitness videos with special toning exercises. 
Hope you are going to like that part of my blog - starting soon ;)

A few days ago I received the most wonderful handmade bracelet from a very talented artist. 
The whole bracelet is made by hand, she used almost 5000 beads to chrochet this wonderful piece of art inspired by the famouse hipanema bracelets, which are being featured in many magazines at the moment. 
Well, I personally prefer this gorgeous bracelet as it is 100% made by hand and with love. 
Check out the Instagram profile of Alexandra Eibler - the brilliant artist.

I decided to rock my new favorite bracelet in combination with my ethno style bag (from Lybia), a casual pair of jeans and glitter heels.
