The Hub's work had a weekend retreat away in Luxembourg.
There's nothing more indulgent then hotel breakfast buffet or room service.
(Mostly because I don't have to cook OR clean up afterwards lol!)
Even better when it's comped ahahaha!
|Pain au Chocolat & Chai Latte|
A daily (vacation) indulgence!
|Mixed Fruit Bowl, Banana Milkshake, Ham & Cheese Crepe|
|Mandarin & Oreo Gelato|
It's hard to tell from the picture because the sun is so bright but they had these amazing catacombs built right into the mountain side very cool!!
My plate vs. The Hubs.. and he went home 2lbs lighter whereas I gained 6lbs.
Everyone knows about the infamous Rick Owens Blister jacket (if you're not familiar you can check out this post I did three years ago about every celeb and their momma wearing it). When I did the post 3 years ago it retailed for $2k well I just checked Neiman's and the jacket currently retails for $2600. It's gone up $600 bucks in 3 years! *yikes*!
Irregardless $2000 or $2600 is not in the budget for a jacket. (Yes admittedly some of my purses are more expensive but even WhoWhatWear.com tells you to invest in a purse! On that note I haven't spent that much on a purse in a few years. So I guess I'm having difficulty justifying it with a purse these days too lol.)
But also because as a lot of you know my weight has constantly changed over the last few years. Which is why I tend to not spend too much in regards to clothing. My purses won't ever stop fitting me! #truth
Anyways at Mango I fell upon this jacket and in honor of (nearly!) reaching my goal weight I splurged!
Total Rick Owen's Blister Jacket Dupe!
Just about freaked when I saw it. I love the oversized moto lapels!
The jacket retails for $169 Euro = $234 USD. However I just checked the US Mango website and the same jacket retails for $289 USD. So if you can scoop this up in Europe/EU online then I would definitely recommend it because with tax you're saving $80+. Either way it's still a steal in comparison to the Rick Owens jacket.
Does anybody know how Mango sizes run?? TTS? Small? Large?
I'm not entirely sure how Mango sizes run but I started out by trying the jacket in size L and it was too big so I switched to M still too big... then S.. then XS.. and I thought I was getting greedy but even the Hubs said it was too big.. and I ended up with XXS!
But on no planet am I a XXS.. not even a XS.. honestly even a S is pushing it! So I'm just wondering if their sizing is really off or they're just very inconsistent haha.
One of the days in Luxembourg after sightseeing we were relaxing at a cafe I was sitting with my legs crossed. Well my leg fell asleep and when I went to stand up I lost my balance and twisted my ankle. (Boots + Cobblestone is not a good combination and yes I'm an total klutz ahaha).
Anyways long story short my ankle blew up like a baseball!
So I spent one of the days holed up in our hotel room because the Hubs didn't want me walking around. After The Hubs took me back to the hotel he left to get me medicine and came back with an Orange Box!!!
Lately I've found myself more then content with my handbag and shoes collection. (Much to The Hubs delight. ahaha) My attention seems to have shifted to home goods and interior design.
Well the Hubs has been paying attention and came back with this gorgeous piece from Hermes!! I love love it!! I think it's actually an ashtray lol? We're not smokers but I still think it would be beautiful on a coffee/end table.
