On Friday I printed my Master's thesis before heading to the office for the last hours of my internship. In fact there is no better feeling for a student than finishing their last paper ever so I probably should have felt fabulous. However I felt the same like during the last few weeks namely stressed and a bit anxious about what the future will bring. When I said goodbye to my boss he saw me off with the words: "So you've finished your internship, you're done with university, you're going to Berlin and later this summer to the US, and you'll be getting married, too. That's awesome!". And damn he was right! My future does look pretty awesome! I have achieved everything I ever wanted to achieve by this age and there is no reason why I should be so afraid of not getting a job because billions of people before me managed to get one. So with this feeling of simply enjoying the now I'm determined to have the time of my life this summer. And there couldn't be a better start to it than Berlin Fashion Week! But before I get completely overwhelmed by my anticipation, let's have a look at what fashion, beauty and blogging news from this week are worth sharing with you:

# Outfit: Hello Fashion
Lately I have a huge crush on flower print off-the-shoulder dresses and I just love how Christine combined hers from ASTR. I even think she made it look better than the web shop photos! Also how awesome are her suede sandals? More photos and outfit details here.
# Article: Luxuriant
As some of you know I did my internship at Luxuriant, a Luxembourgish lifestyle magazine. They have a column about the outfits of local girls and I had a lot of fun shooting and writing the article for this month's issue with my friend Claude. You can pick up the magazine about anywhere in Luxembourg, simply look out for the Luxuriant display stands. Find the whole look on Claude's blog Imagine The Swallows.

# Sales: My Must Have
Yesterday the summer sales started in Luxembourg. On Friday I already browsed some shops to see what I could purchase for my US trip this summer. This fringed denim skirt was one of my favourite finds. It is currently available at Pull&Bear for 12,99€ instead of 29,99€!
# Brand Discovery: Marie-Stella-Maris
Do others good while you do yourself good? It's possible with the beauty products from the Dutch label Marie-Stella-Maris. For every product you purchase the brand will contribute to clean drinking water projects. And if that weren't enough, the packagings also look like they could be the next big thing on Instagram!
