It’s that time of the year again! Vienna is finally getting warmer, and by the day. And we know all too well what this means: it’s time to pull out your favorite pair of sandals. But what if what you need is actually a brand new pair to spice things up a bit? No worries there, we got you covered. From heeled and flat mules, through strappy espadrilles, all the way to comfy, simple shapes.

Can’t have enough? We neither. Here are our favorites.

Bianca Valle, #hairspiration

Screen Shot 2017-05-24 at 11.28.28 AM

Bianca Valle is an artist pursuing ‘many different art forms’, as she states herself. Photography, video, painting and even a personal zine are her daily bread. Today, however, we are talking of the daily #hairspiration that Bianca is for us. 

It all began when Vogue pointed it out: Bianca Valle, sporting a long, unruly, wavy mane is what our heart needs for some legit #hairspiration. From making art to being herself artsy (and stylish — look at those outfits), Bianca has told Vogue about her routine to keep her locks soft and healthy. “C mint conditioner and peppermint conditioner from Whole Foods; the anti – frizz treatment of Kenra; And coconut oil.”

The key here, however, is keeping it natural. No curlers, no straighteners, no crazy products are involved in the making of a mane to remember. Also, keep the hairdryer power to a minimum.

For more #hairspiration, go ahead and follow Bianca on Instagram. For her artwork, check out her website. For some immediate hair-love, see the gallery down here.

4 Breakfast Trends You Should Know

When it comes to trends, we are all over the place. Sure, we mainly talk about fashion trends. However, what to do when it comes to your growling stomach? Good news. Pinterest and the likes always have the answer to every craving and every dinner party idea you might ever need. Even better, food trends have become an actual and real thing. And when it comes to breakfast? Well, that’s a whole new level.

Here are 4 breakfast trends which are so in, it makes your tummy in too.

Breakfast all day long

First and foremost, the übertrend. Sure, we are used to brunch, but nothing beats sitting in a cafe on a lazy Sunday afternoon and seeing those three magical words: All-day breakfast.

DIY breakfast bars & balls

When make-your-own breakfast reaches a new level, it’s all about a bit of prepping and a lot of enjoying. This is the case of DIY breakfast bars and breakfast balls. Pulse together healthy binders (like honey and dates) and crunchy deliciousness (like oats and nuts, our besties), and do not forget your protein. Enjoy straight out of the fridge.

Bowls, bowls everywhere

Poké and Akai were just the beginning. Breakfast bowls featuring fruit, greek yogurt, or even savory treats are all over the Pinterest universe. Oh, and have you heard of the smoothie bowl yes? It’s exactly what you think it is.

Sweet potato-what?

Sweet potato toast: mh? Sweet potato waffles: what? The point is, sweet potatoes are being used as a delicious substitute and healthier alternative for most refined-carbs-based stuff. And we dig it.

How To Customize Your Engagement Ring From Scratch, With Galeries du Diamant

how to customize your engagement ring

Galeries du Diamant

There is much debate revolving around diamonds, mostly concerning the exorbitant prices they often are sold for and their origins, just as often spotted with blood. For these two reasons mainly, getting a big diamond fit for your finger to honor your engagement has started to be regarded as an old-fashioned custom. Fortunately, there are some names in the industry that went full-in and chose the game-changer road. One among all is Galeries du Diamant in Paris.

As founder Charles Ziegler’s motto goes, “A diamond is the naked beauty of nature. A brand adds nothing to your experience of its power except cost.” And Galeries du Diamant seems to be pretty serious about it. As their story goes, they describe themselves as ‘expert diamond dealers from Antwerp, specialist cutters and jewellery designers’. The rough diamonds are bought from small South American and African producers after an accurate selection. This selection is made keeping the Kimberley Process in mind, which doesn’t allow any kind of exploitation to be part of the extraction process.

Proficiently cut by hand and certified, the diamonds are shipped to Paris and offered to the willing customers eliminating all intermediaries. And this is how your hand can be easily jeweled, in one of these two ways:

Made To Measure

After an accurate selection of your diamonds and ring, you can watch the jewelers literally creating your ring-to-be, made to fit your personality and style.

Bespoke

If you want to take personalization one step forward, you can me teamed up with in-house jewellery designers to create your totally customized, one-of-a-kind piece from scratch.

As wedding season is just around the corner, you better book your tickets to Paris and make it one hell of a sparkling experience. Check the gallery to see some of the signature creations by Galeries du Diamant and how their services work.

The Best Photos From Pippa Middleton’s Wedding

When it comes to royals (and, in this case, their relatives?), we do like to watch. Now that the widely expected wedding between Kate Middleton‘s sister Pippa and her fiancé James Matthew has finally taken place, we can sit back and take a look at the most entertaining shots — and some very British outfits!

Vows were exchanged at St. Mark’s Church in Berkshire, England, and the reception was held in the Middleton’s estate in the country. The bride was wearing Giles Deacon, worth around fifty thousand euros against her sister’s hundreds of thousands spent over an Alexander McQueen gown. But again, Kate was marrying the heir to the English throne, so it’s alright.

Here is the best the web has to offer from Pippa Middleton’s rather secret-ish wedding ceremony. Take a look at the gallery!

Where To Eat Al Fresco In Vienna

There are few things less satisfying than enjoying food (and, ok, wine. And cocktails) in the late afternoon light of summer. Here in Vienna, where the warm weather brings everyone and their sister outside in mere seconds, we have our favorite places to do so. Here are five places to eat al fresco in Vienna, according to the Notorious people.

Summer Stage

Take a stroll among the options offered by Summerstage from the beginning of May to September, and pick the one that makes your tummy growl. We personally could never say no to a burrito at Pancho’s.

A secret garden in the middle of the city is just your perfect Sunday option, isn’t it? Rest in the shade of this charming roof made of branches and leaves.

Hotel am Brillantengrund

Is it a restaurant? Is it a hotel? Is it a bar? It’s all three, and it’s pretty awesome.

Motto Am Fluss

Eating on a boat? Yes please. Especially if the ‘boat’ in question is Motto, well-known in Vienna for its style, cuisine, and cocktails.

Yak und Yeti

If you are in the mood for a Nepalese experience, head over to Yak und Yeti’s colorful garden. Dishes to drool about, in a cozy, lovely spot in Mariahilf.

Cannes 2017: The Best And The Worst Off The Red Carpet

Like every year, Cannes is a great excuse to check out some tasty red carpet shots. Not as over-the-top as the Met Gala, but for us more sophisticated than the Oscars, the Cannes 2017 red carpet did not fail to surprise when it came to some interesting gowns (& co.) to peer at. Here is our nifty selection.

YES: It’s all about the shoulders

Michelle Williams was stunning in a simple yet effective Louis Vuitton gown, with shoulder coverage to spare.

YES: Unicorns

If you say Elle Fanning and Vivienne Westwood in the same sentence, we’re down. Especially if the dress in question is named ‘unicorn dress’.

YES: Greek goddesses

Is it a vestal? Is it a greek goddess? No — it’s Lily-Rose Depp looking A-stunning before the Opening Gala. Curls included in the package.

YES: Taking it to the next level

It’s not even about the dress. It’s the buzzcut + dark overlord dress combination.

NO: Showing way too much leg, again

Susan, we love you, but this is the second time in a row. And it is well known we are not fans of anything that even vaguely reminds us of naked dresses. Call us prudish.

NO: Wearing your curtains

Speaking of naked dresses: there is the lace, there is some skirt pieces, there is the breast window. No. Please. Stop.
