SPRING BASICS

SPRING BASICS

Location: Sydney CBD


In collaboration with MARKS & SPENCER (Shopping Links)

Have I ever shopped from MARKS & SPENCER before? NO! Did I like my first ever experience? YESS PLEASE!

If you don’t like the hassle of the ‘never-ending’ shipping periods and you want to score a good deal with

excellent quality, I highly recommend M&S online store!

LOOK 1

Ladies! Never underestimate the power of a basic black pencil skirt!

This piece could be as versatile as your favourite pair of jeans. The one I’m wearing here is a cute piece from

Marks & Spencer’s new collection. Add some ruffles and you have the perfect skirt from daytime (your corporate

job) to a date with your one and only. I think it became part of my style to pair feminine pieces back with

sneakers. Honestly, it makes your (my) life so much easier and looks super cool!

TIP: style the skirt with a  pair of killer heels/sandals and an oversized white (or if you’re brave enough – bay

blue) button-up and wait for all the compliments you’ll get for your “oh-so-cool” look!

MARKS & SPENCER | fishtail pencil midi skirt

LOOK 2

Whenever I decide to shop online (which happens way more often that it should), the fist category I search for is

KNITS! And luckily, M&S has some seriously nice ones! This time I went for a tighter stripy fit which is a great

layering piece, but stands as statement piece on it’s own too! Add black skinnies & chucks (my go to choice on

weekends) to achieve the comfiest look ever! You could also try to pair the knit with a  denim mini or a silk midi

skirt… the options are endless! :)

Have I convinced you yet? Good! Now head over to MARKS & SPENCER to do your spring basics shopping!

The ASUS Zenbook 3 UX390 has become one of my travel essentials. In my line of work, being mobile is equally

as important as looking great, which is why I was so impressed that the Zenbook achieves both! The UX390 has

an ultra-thin design paired with a large screen display so I can easily carry it in my handbag and work while I’m

travelling, at a shoot or on-the go.

 The deep blue shade of the laptop and its statement gold trimming oozes luxury and works with any outfit. The

gold backlighting on the keyboard is ideal for when you’re on a long-haul overnight flight as you can work, or

Netflix, the flight away without disturbing your fellow passengers.

GUESS ORIGINALS COLLECTION

GUESS ORIGINALS COLLECTION

Location: Bondi


In collaboration with GUESS

This time, I’ve teamed up with Guess to show you my absolute favourites from their Originals Collection. And to

stay true to the “Andi” style I haven’t looked at the women’s section ;)

Because, who doesn’t love to snuggle up in a Man’s tee? Since I remember I was always sneaking into Teo’s

wardrobe for those perfectly oversized tees. (he hated it!!!) …so I was extremely happy when Guess reached out

and offered to choose my very own pieces from their new collection! If you love a good ‘vintage looking’ tee (just

as me), don’t look any further – Guess has it!

For a cool “I don’t really care, what I’m wearing today” look, tuck the tee into you jeans and roll the sleeves up!

To add even more “Andi Extras” to the look, I’ve cut the bottom of my skinnies off.

I just love that ‘unfinished’ look.

SONEVA FUSHI – MALDIVES

SONEVA FUSHI – MALDIVES

Location: SONEVA FUSHI, M A L D I V E S (I knoooooow!!!)


IN COLLABORATION WITH SONEVA FUSHI

OK! First thing first! We’ve been to MALDIVES! I still can’t believe all the beauty and unreal

scenery of this amazing country! As I’m not very good with words, I tried to put this blog post together in more of a

visual way, so  you can enjoy our experience at least thought these photos with narration.

Our trip hasn’t really started in Maldives…It all actually started in Bali two weeks before we flew to the Islands.

We went to Bali with friends, who I later found out, were part of the “Andi’s Surprise Present” project. You also have to

know some details:

  • my birthday is on the 24th of September
  • we flew to Bali as an early Birthday Prezzy, 3 week before our actual Maldives trip

It was an extremely hot day in Bali and Teo was all nervous and shaky…I would say he acted pretty weird.

Two Gin&Tonics later, he couldn’t keep it any longer! He looked at me and he said: Honey, we are flying to

Maldives in 10 days!

And so it was…this amazing man of mine (@teobelives) surprised me with an 8 days Holiday to Maldives!

Was I crying? Yes! :D I actually couldn’t stop sobbing, like a child who gets it’s first

pet! (well, I would still cry if Teo gets me a dog tomorrow :) )

But back to this amazing resort called SONEVA FUSHI – I hope you guys enjoy to scroll trough the photos

as much as we did in those two days spent on one of the world’s most luxurious retreats!

SEAPLANE


We’ve spent our first night in Male (capital of Maldives) as we arrived at midnight and the transport to the

island operates during the day only. The next day, an extremely lovely  SONEVA FUSHI team member was waiting

for us at the airport (OMG! The communication/logistics between the resorts is unbelievable!

We still have to learn a lot!) to escort us to our PRIVATE LOUNGE! where cooled wet towels, nuts and fresh

squeezed watermelon/lime juices were served for us. The transport was extremely well organised and the next minute

we were sitting on a sea plane. The whole flight took less then 40 minutes and it was one of the best experiences of my

life! That view! I still have goosebumps when I think about spotting the first turquoise reefs and small islands.

FAST BOAT


Another 2 minutes with a speed-boat and the holiday begins. Note: fresh coconut served on the boat!

VILLA NO 3.


(Teo in our livingroom)

(our private pool and one of the many outdoor showers of the villa)

BATHROOM GOALS

According to SONEVA’s website, the villa comes with a “Luxurious open-air garden bathroom with water feature, large

bathtub and separate shower”. This actually means a garden sized bathroom :D with a bathtub in a middle of a pond,

outdoors shower (which is bigger than our apartment) and massive wooden construction with mirror! You’re welcome!

Our bedroom before the mess… Well well, thanks to SONEVA’s personnel, our room looked like this all the time!

DINING AREA – our favourite spot


SONEVA literally reinvented the meaning of “buffet” :DDD with a 24 hour access to it’s ‘food rooms’

Enough said, just read trough:

Chocolate Room (at least 1.000.000.000 different bon-bon’s…OMG!)

Dessert Room (ice-cream, tarts, cakes, pastry, macarons…you name it)

Salami Room ( salami, cheese and spirits – unlimited…)

Salad Room (all vegetables of the world, fresh leaves from the resort’s ‘Green Garden’!!!, pickled everything… )

Fruit Room – you already know…

Fresh Fish From The Grill

Pancake Station

SUSHI Station

Pizza Oven

…and the list goes on and on and on (all kind of curry, soups, dim-sim, English breakfast, eggs in any form…)

SONEVA IN AQUA – floating hotel


SONEVA’s baby – a sailing hotel! This almost 20m long boat villa offers all the benefits of the resort + bit more!

This ultra-luxurious yacht has an enormous main cabin with a fun feature – glass bottom spa! Yep – I saw it with my

own eyes! You could also enjoy your dinner or even a wellness treatment on one of the many decks of this beautiful

beast! Oh, I almost forgot – JACUZZI! you can also enjoy your very own jacuzzi on a boat!

DOLPHIN WATCH BY SUNSET


No words needed! Just casually watching the dolphins play while the sun sets… :) Just another cool program you can

add to your already perfect holiday!

COCKTAIL PARTY AT THE SAND BANK


Such a pleasure meeting Jason Collins (NBA player), Brunson Green (producer of ‘The Help’) Jimmy Im (award

winning journalist) and Mike Dover -our dearest G&T friend :D Our holiday wouldn’t have been the same without you

guys!

Fresh Coconut Water with Vanilla Infused Vodka anyone! Two please! Thanks! Bye.

SEAPLANE –  to be continued…

Coming from Europe, it took me some while to get used to celebrating Christmas in Summer and escaping Aussie winter back to Europe in June! Since Teo and I moved to Sydney 6 years ago, we haven’t seen snow – not even  glimpse of it…till last week! I can’t even describe the feeling when you spot snowy mountain on your way to Thredbo from Canberra! Our lovely friend from @snowsportsinternational invited us to enjoy a whole weekend full of fun (and snow of course).

Here is a short visual story from our snow-full time in Thredbo! I hope you like :)

One for Bloomingdales

One for Bloomingdales

Location: Sydney & Bali (Indonesia)


In collaboration with Bloomingdales

I chose these pieces because they fit perfectly into my collection!

As I’m sure you all know, I’m obsessed with denim! It can be hard to find pieces that stand out from the crowd without being hard to pair with a simple tee. These two pairs (white jeans and raw hem light was jeans) were exactly what was missing from my wardrobe!

The white pair is a bit unusual for me, yes, not being classic blue or black, but boy do they add variety! If you don’t have a pair of white jeans, I dare you, right now to go straight to Bloomingdales.com and find these babies! They are exclusive to Bloomingdales so don’t even bother trying to find them somewhere else!

And the tops, well, the sweatshirt is obvious, cool, comfy and casual. It’s perfect match with the white denim and an easy pair of slides. Classic Andi, really! You’ll spot me in this one for sure!

The Ella Moss Plisse red top, however, is more unique. It’s light enough for summer but also looks and feels pretty sexy with a pair of jeans. I know it’s hard to find the perfect spring pattern, but I’ve found it for you so, you’re welcome!

This is my first Bloomingdales.com experience and ladies, trust me, it’s love at first sight! I am very excited to share this new love with all of you.

WHITE TEE

WHITE TEE

Location: Paddington & Bondi


In collaboration with COTTON ON

Don’t look any further! I’ve found you the best white t-shirt! (You know I always do the “hard work” for you ladies!)
Perfect fit and 100% cotton (very important aspect in choosing my basics) Yep, you guessed right – Cotton On  has it!
In this post I want to show you my two favourite ways to rock a slightly oversized white tee. TIP: Always go one or two sizes up form your regular size to achieve the perfect slouchy look.
LOOK 1
Easy and Chic! Pair it with black skinny jeans, trucker denim jacket, and Docs for a more casual look and you’re ready!

LOOK 2
Who said sweatpants are for home only? We all want to feel comfy, right? Especially on Saturdays, grabbing a coffee or just running errands. I’m telling you! You’ll love this combo! Basic white tee + comfy track pants + chucks = LOVE!
Love, Andy xx
