Finally I found some time to write a highly requested post about my daily breakfast. 
Many girls on Instagram and via email ask me how I prepare my breakfast and how it benefits my healthy and clean eating lifestyle. 
You all, mainly the part of you guys, who have been following me for quite a while now, know that I study nutritional sciences and that I'm an absolute fitness and healthy food freak. 
If you already follow me on Instagram, where I also post my healthy meals, you might have noticed  that I never skip my breakfast, which definitely is the most important meal of the day.  
Many people don't have a breakfast at all, but as studies have shown breakfast should be the most important meal of the day, and guys, I can tell you, it really is. People give a variety for reasons for not eating breakfast, common reasons are that they are not hungry or have no time, they think they might gain weight and there are many other reasons. But what really happens if you skip your breakfast in the long run is, that you more likely tend to gain weight. Research studies tell us, that people who eat breakfast are more likely to maintain a healthy weight.

So simple, yet so chic!

Sometimes a simply outfit can be so chic! 
When it comes to effortless chic, my number one style icon is Emmanuelle Alt, Editor-in-Chief of Vogue Paris, no one else looks hotter in skinny jeans, boyfriend shirts or pullovers and oversized jackets than her. Wow, this lady always looks so gorgeous without a lot of makeup in her fuss-free signature outfits.
Let's sum it up, all we need for this effortless Parisian look are skinny pants (leather or denim), heels, boyfriend / oversized tops and elegant and glam rock outerwear pieces.
I really love over-the-top extravagant fashion, but when it comes to the end of the day, there's nothing more stylish than simple, chic and high quality pieces.  
Last weekend I wore such a Parisian Chic- inspired look. Well,  I'm quite happy with the outcome and felt super stylish, but yet so comfy in this outfit. 
Do you like this look?

I hope you all had a wonderful start into the new year and enjoyed a wonderful holiday season. 
After spending a wonderful time with my family, I'm back with my first outfit post in this sparkling new year. 
Fluffy fur coats and vests are my number one key pieces this winter, so guess what, it was again love at first sight when I first saw this wonderful grey coat from We Love Furs.
(Check out my previous posts featuring other wonderful pieces from We Love Furs here, here and here)  
This coat has the perfect length, (as I'm quite tall (~1,80m), it might be quite short on me, though), it's super warm and fluffy and although the fur is quite frizzy, it doesn't wear out very much.
I decided to combine it with a mini flared skirt, a grey wool pullover, a classy bag and burgundy Oxford shoes, to make the whole look more fun and special.
