HAPPY HALLOWEEN


Hello guys! Happy Monday and happy Halloween to y'all! I know I should have made a scary make up look for this occasion but I'm not really good at doing horror clowns or skulls on my face, so I will represent a 'inner beast person', so you can't get scared by looking at me haha. So, I was a busy bee today, going to the post office shop, then I bought some groceries and later today I have to go back to the post office because I forgot to send out something very important (I am so good in forgetting things btw that's why I am the Organizer kind of girl..). Since tomorrow is an holiday, I thought why not do everything today! I took these two pictures some days ago, where I had kind of a relaxed day on the couch.. I know, fully dressed and make up on but it was real chill with 90210 (which is such a great series!! I am already at season 2!) and delicious food in between. Now I'm going to eat Pumpkin soup that my mum made this morning and I'm totally craving everything Pumpkin right now haha (unfortunately out local Starbucks has no pumpkin spice latte, what a shame!!!). Anyways, now I'm gonna eat and PS: You really have to check out the upcoming posts I showed as a sneak peek on my snapchat (@fionaschubert). LOVE

RED LEATHER JACKET

Jacket HERE, t-shirt HERE and skirt HERE - Zara, Bag HERE - Stradivarius, Shoes - Adidas Stan Smith
Wine red to get ready for fall! I absolutely love autumn and its beautiful colored leaves on trees. It just gives me that feeling! I love being snuggled into a big coat with a maxi scarf and fluffy boots! But that's coming soon! There are still warmer temperatures outside so I enjoy it with a simple denim skirt and a leather jacket, which makes the outfit so much more special! Without it the outfit would be boring! And did I mention I love croco print? If you haven't noticed yet, it's a crazy obsession of mine! If I could I would have EVERYTHING in croc look haha! What's also trendy atm, a clash of animal prints, so here I'm wearing a croco bag with zebra printed sneakers, which makes it also interesting :-) A good pair of sunnies never get old so I stole my brother's aviators for this shoot. If you're reading this, sorry about that! Anyways, I hope you guys like this outfit, tell me what you think!! <3 Now I'll enjoy my insalata caprese and watch "Erin Brockovich", I've never seen it before so I'm excited! LOVE

WINTER COATS

WINTER COATS

As you know I was born in December, so I am a total winter child! I would not say I love cold weather, but I don't hate it like others. I actually prefer 10 layers of clothing instead of a sweaty sun burned face and tight clothes and swollen feet because of the heat. That I am a winter child is maybe also the reason why I own around 50 coats and jackets made for the weather of Fall/Winter. I just love wearing jackets and coats and today I thought why do not make a collage of my current favorite styles! :-) Of course you can never go wrong with a simple blazer cut double button row coat in a neutral color like black, grey or white, but sometimes a special jacket/coat gives you that extra something, if you know what I mean! Therefore I chose three fur jackets in vibrant colors, like pink, peach and rusty red! Imagine a beautiful black dress underneath a big fur coat and then some over-knee boots.... DYING! What I am also obsessing about are the shearling coats everyone is wearing at the moment, it just looks so beautiful either with denim or with a different fabric! Also I wanted to mention the options you have with a simple leather jacket cut.. The blue one on top is the exact same cut and fit as a leather jacket, but it's not leather! And last but not least: You can always go for something more conspicuous like an animal printed coat :-) Hope I gave you some inspiration for the colder days. Grab some hot chocolate and cookies and enjoy your evening love! <3

WHERE TO EAT IN NEW YORK

Hi guys! Some days ago I was thinking about my NYC trip (not only bc NYFW is all over my social media feeds) and the amazing restaurants we were at. So many good restaurants with amazing interiors! Although I didn't capture everything with my DSLR, I still wanted to give you some tips where to go in NYC! :-) As soon as I knew that I was going to NY I browsed through the internet and through many Instagram maps to get the most of inspiration I can get (unfortunately the setting with the maps was discontinued by Instagram, worst mistake ever!!), so at the end I had quite a list. And we visited some of them for dinner bc obviously we couldn't go to all of them, but now I can show you 15 amazing restaurants to go to when you are in New York! :-) PS: Restaurants I actually visited are marked with a star (*) in the title!

BREAKFAST/COFFEE/BREAK SPOTS

1. Balthazar, 80 Spring St *
My parents had coffee there when we were shopping in SoHo. They said it's a cute café/restaurant with lots of delicious pasteries and coffee. It looks like the old parisian cafes! From the outside it seems small and inconspicuous, but from the inside it feels like you're in Paris! Definitely a must :-)

2. Jack's Wife Freda, 50 Carmine St
This cute breakfast spot was literally all over my Instagram feed during NYFW! But totally justified, since it's an amazing and delicious restaurant where you can order everything healthy and the most important and famous plate on earth right now: Avocado toast!!

3. Brooklyn Blender Bar, 25 Jay St *
We stopped at this beautiful old roasting company when we were strolling through Brooklyn! It was hot as hell on this day so there was nothing we needed more than an ice cold smoothie. They are prepared directly in front of you with pure natural organic fruit, they use fresh fruit and only the best ingredients, so they make sure it's 100% healthy and natural. They have many different mixtures, but mainly concentrated on the colors of the fruit, so red are berries, orange are mangos/oranges, green are avocados, kiwi and so on, but you know what I mean. Definitely a must as well when you are in Brooklyn :-)

4. Lafayette, 380 Lafayette St
Lafayette is also a cute cafe which we unfortunately had no time to visit.. But there's always a next time :-) I heard a lot about this cafe, that you can order delicious food and good bread, since it's a boulangerie inspired by Paris. Also the interior captured me! I love when restaurants/cafes put a lot of effort into the interior design and bathrooms :-)

5. By Chloe, 185 Bleecker St
Similar to Jack's Wife Freda and the Butcher's Daughter, this cute breakfast spot is also one of my faves! It's beautiful from the outside as from the inside and also the food tastes amazing. The Avo toasts and bowls are a big plus here and there's this special vibe going on while you're there. A big recommendation! :-)

LUNCH SPOTS

1. THE WAYFARER, 101 W 57th St *
This restaurant was also very high on expectations when we went there.  I was told that the sushi there would be phenomenal so I ordered some and it was so true!! So delicious! As you know I'm a sushi lover and slowly but surely I am getting to know if sushi is good or bad. Most of the times I see the difference in salmon or better in tuna, because these two must be so delicate but still fresh so they taste, and they totally did! :-) Also the interior excited me when I entered. So beautiful!

2. The Butcher's Daughter, 19 Kenmare St
As said above this restaurant is similar to two others I wrote about earlier, because they also have an amazing avo toast. The interior is mostly white with this natural looking details like green plants. You could also sit outside which is not that often in NYC. Also a recommendation :-)

3. Market Table, 54 Carmine St
Market Table is one of the restaurants we could not go to since there was not enough time.. I heard a lot of good things about this restaurant so I will definitely go back there if I'm back in NY. From the outside it looks nondescript, but from the inside it's open and bright with the big windows :-) The poached egg showed on the right should be so delicious! Can't wait to try it!!

4. The Standard grill, 848 Washington St
The Standard grill was one of these all over recommendations I heard from many people and also from Bloggers! There the hotel, the rooftop bar and the restaurant on the ground floor of the hotel. They have a terrace, which is super cute and also the interior looks quite nice :-)

5. Chelsea Market, 75 9th Ave
Chelsea Market is like the Naschmarkt in Vienna, the Mercado de San Miguel in Madrid or the Fischmarkt in Hamburg: it's just a whole area of FOOD. So many different options, so many countries surrounded by each other, everything your hungry heart desires! If you're hungry in NYC but not quite sure what to eat or where to go, just go here and you'll find exactly what you want :-)

DINNER SPOTS

1. Lucien, 14 1st Ave #1 *
Lucien is a tiny restaurant filled with so much love, believe me. It's such an old french cafe, with lots of personality. My mom said she had the best bouillabaisse here in a very long time and that should mean something for sure :-) The dishes in the card are mostly french, and the lovely waiter girl told us that Lucien, the chef, is also french and came here a long time ago. The food was so delicious I can't even tell! A must :-)

2. Catch, 21 9th Ave *
The restaurant Catch is located in the meatpacking district of NYC and a huge building. There are two floors of dining tables and a third one with a terrace. On the terrace you have a lovely view over the district. Although it was SOOOO cold in the restaurant (I don't know if the americans don't notice that the A/C is way too cold), the food was delicious and there are also many handsome good looking waiters at the restaurant (even if in too tight pants..). Also loved the interior! :-)

3. Mercer Kitchen, 99 Prince St *
Mercer Kitchen was one of the restaurants I had very high hopes on, just because I was told that they have the best burgers ever. The restaurant is located in SoHo, so such a cute atmosphere! You eat downstairs where it's very dark but I think it really gives this feeling of coziness and chill. We all had burgers and fries and they were SO good, so the hopes were totally satisfied afterwards! :-) The waiter was also very kind and I have to say that they were also very very handsome.. :-) Absolute recommendation!

4. The View, 1535 Broadway *
The View was the bomb of them all, not because of the waiter or the food, but because of the view (what a play on words haha). The concept of the whole restaurant was so new to me and so interesting and beautiful that I really forgot myself in some moments. The platform turned slow, so did not get dizzy or something (bc some people wrote that in the web and afterwards I couldn't understand it at all), but the funny thing was that when you left for the bathroom, you had to go another way to go back to your table because of the turning haha! The food was delicious though and my dad had his most expensive espresso for a lifetime (9$ for a tiny amount of coffee haha). But so worth it when you see the sun set!

5. Estiatorio Milos, 125 W 55th St *
The last restaurant I have on my list is this one right here. My dad already knew this restaurant because he's already been there before. He really wanted to go again bc he liked it so much. And that should mean something when you are in NYC with MANY restaurants. It's a mediterranean restaurant, so lots of sea food and healthy food. The whole interior is so beautiful, big glass windows and light! Definitely worth a visit if you love fish! :-)

RED SHADES




On time for fall saison I created this make up look right here :-) I love love love dark red colors for autumn, not only because the leaves on the trees turn into this vibrant orange red color but also because it gives this special touch. In summer I feel more vibrant with fluorescent lips for example, but in Fall/Winter I would rather go with a more bold and warm look. As always, the base is the same and you can go through my older make up looks where I put all the information on my foundation routine or my base of my face beneath the pictures. On the eyes for this make up look right here I used Morphe palette shadows only, so I used the 12S and 35T (which I adore btw!) and in the center of the lid I used a tiny bit of Mac Cosmetics pigment in 'Tan' which is also a favorite of mine :-) For the lips I applied Anastasia Beverly Hills Liquid Lipstick in 'Veronica'. I think this will be my go to make up look, since it's colorful but still simple in a certain way! Tell me what you think and maybe you can tell me what your beauty favorites are for fall, would love to hear them, lots of love! <3

SILVER BACKPACK

Shirt - DIY, Shorts - H&M, Sneakers - Adidas, Backpack - Zara, Sunnies - Dior Reflected
Here is a new outfit post! :-) This time a more sporty look with a backpack and sneakers, combined with a lace up shirt I did myself! I wanted it to look sporty but on the other hand also chic, as I always do.. So I took my Ruby Woo lipstick and put it on. Also the high bun makes it more sporty :-) As by the other outfit posts I have to apologize because the camera was on the wrong setting therefore the quality got trashy. So sorry for that, but you have to make a mistake so you can learn by it! Hope you like it though, tell me what you think in the comment section. LOVE

LIFE UPDATE

Hello everyone!! Hope you are all doing well and enjoying the weekend. Today I thought why not talk about what's going on at the moment, because I haven't really spoke about current happenings. So, to begin with is that I am currently working at the local shoe boutique to get some money so I can finally buy something I had in my head for quite some time (but that's another story..). That's what I am doing besides blogging. Then I also go on day trips when I have the opportunity to go! For example one week ago I was in Stuttgart for 2 days, yesterday I spent some time in Frankfurt (where I even met a lovely girl who follows me on Instagram <3) and I'm also looking forward to visit some of my friends who don't live in my city anymore. That were the things I wanted to do after my graduation: Gain money and explore cities! :-) It's now also official that I am going to Florence for New Years Eve for a couple of days (if you have any suggestions on where to go, write me please!). When I am not working or blogging I am thinking about doing some internships in fashion companies to get a closer inside look into the fashion industry and maybe make a decision on what to study at university next year. Yes I still want to study and it's still not clear what or where.. I wanted to study something with fashion, but fashion is so wide that it's hard to choose. I am also doing things I wanted to do for so long! Like finally go to the hairdresser, clean out my closet, make up my mind for new blogpost ideas, get inspired each day and I also wanted to paint my bicycle for a really long time, but still not sure if I should do this now since it's already fall! Anyways, today's the 1st October and exactly today one year ago I got my driver's license! Can't believe it's already been a year! Now I am going to sit down create some blogposts for you guys, such a lazy Saturday, but so much needed. Love you guys <3
