The Blue Lagoon Geothermal Spa is one of the most visited tourist attractions in Iceland, located in a lava field about an hour away from Reykjavik, and of course we had to go and pay a visit. Don't be fooled by the layers I am wearing, it was actually even colder than this but I removed the scarf and jacket for the sake of the pictures. The average temperature during our stay was 10-12 °C , but that didn't matter once you stepped into the Blue Lagoon. The water temperature in the bathing area averages around a soothing 38-40 °C and is rich in minerals. We even received complimentary silica mud for face masks in the water. Needless to say this was a one of a kind experience, I would say it even comes close to my favorite so far which was whale watching. Make sure you don't miss it if you ever travel to Iceland, I highly recommend it!

I am back home and now that the temperatures have dropped, I am back to wearing jeans again. I had to order a pair of maternity boyfriend jeans because of course none of my pairs fit me anymore, but these ones are so cozy I might just wear them even after I give birth (joking!). I also ordered this dress here but it turned out to be way to short for me, mostly because my baby bump make everything ride up, so I decided to wear it as a top. I just love the hear shaped cutout back, don't you?

Hello kittens, I am back from my vacation and still enjoying a couple more days off before going back to work. I will tell you more about my vacation adventures in a short while. For now I want to share with you some outfit shots from our first stop in Berlin. We had a 10 hour layover in Berlin before our connecting flight so we took this opportunity to explore the city. We mainly hung out around the main tourist attractions and we enjoyed the city quite much. We definitely need to go back for a more in depth visit.

Things have been quite hectic these last couple of days, but I am officially on vacation! Yey! I had a lot of errands to run, a ton of things to organize and my bags are almost done. We are leaving tomorrow and I am super excited. Follow me on Instagram to see where we are headed to, I promise it will be a big surprise. My new white dress arrived just in time, and made all this running around town much more breezy and fun. I won't be able to wear it during my vacation but I cannot wait to give it another spin when I am back. Also, I am definitely addicted to my new MAC Retro Matte Ruby Woo lipstick. Goodbye for now my kittens, see you in a bit!

Nowadays I feel like my baby bump is the perfect accessory (if I can call it that), but it doesn't hurt to put on a statement necklace either. You'll suddenly notice people not knowing where to look first. And they don't call it a statement necklace for nothing, it's bound to draw some attention. I found the most awesome selection on Happiness Boutique, and with a name like that, who wouldn't love to shop there? I truly felt I received happiness in a box when my package arrived. They offer free shipping and have an awesome customer reward program, so all the more reason to start shopping.

I rarely alter my clothes, mainly because I am too lazy, and this time I am super glad I did not manage to shorten this skirt. It was a bit too long and was giving me kind of a hard time to walk in it as it got caught in my heels. Now I just hike it up over my waist line, which in fact is non existing at the moment, and the pleating in front is hugging my growing baby bump in all the right places. I can now wear it with flats, even if it drags a bit, but at least I don't risk tripping over it. The tricky part is that none of my pants fit me anymore and neither do some of the skirts, so I might have to start to alter some of them and turn them into maternity wear instead of buying new stuff. I am sure my wallet will be happy with this decision.

Last week, those of you who attended the Fashion Fridays Summer Fair at No Name Beach had a chance to hang out with me and my friend Laura, and most importantly to shop items from our wardrobes. It was soooo good for me to take a break from work, relax and hang out with fashionable people. I took advantage of our fabulous location, soaked up some sun and even took some dips in the pool to cool down. My trusted shirt dress was the perfect cover up to wear over the swimming suit and these heart shaped sunglasses have basically been glued to my face ever since. They are super fun to wear during the summer. What do you guys love to wear when going to the beach/ swimming pool?
