Knotenkunst - der Half Bun

Read Article →

Heiß! 30°! Vielleicht habt ihr es auf Instagram gesehen: Meine Gedanken kreisen um köstliche Wassermelone, Swimming Pools und Wasser {viel, viel Wasser} mit einem Hauch Limette und marokkanischer Minze. Ich stelle mir vor: Ich treibe auf einer Luftmatratze in Form einer Eiswaffel auf kristallklarem Wasser, in der einen Hand mein Mini-Limetten-Wasser, in der anderen Hand ein Stück Wassermelone und das Tüpfelchen auf dem i: Ich kann {auf wundersame Weise} währenddessen die herrlichen Videos von DariaDaria schauen mit denen ich mich schon den halben Tag von der Arbeit abhalte. Ein Girl Crush, ganz klar. Ich unterbreche mein Video-Marathon trotzdem, denn ich wollte euch unbedingt meine neue Lieblingsfriseur vorstellen: Den Half Bun

Die perfekte Tasche - ein (persönliches) Dilemma

Read Article →

Karl Lagerfeld sagte einmal: Today everybody can look chic in inexpensive clothes (the rich buy them too). There is good clothing design on every level today. You can be the chicest thing in the world in a T-Shirt and jeans - it's up to you. Ich komme nicht umhin mich zu fragen: Gilt Lagerfeld's Feststellung auch für Taschen? Stilikonen wie Caroline de Maigret oder Ines de la Fressange mit einer Tasche von Primark, H&M und Konsorten? Unvorstellbar! Sind Handtaschen eine Ausnahme dieser inexpensive clothes-Regel?

Blogger Essentials | der {weiße} Garderobenständer

Read Article →

Es gibt eine Handvoll Dinge, die für einen Modeblogger unverzichtbar sind. Dazu gehört zum einen die weiße Bettwäsche. Kann man den Frühstücks-Cappuccino oder das Beeren-Müsli besser in Szene setzen als auf blütenweißer Bettwäsche? Kaum. Wenn, dann nur auf einer weißen Marmorplatte. Zum anderen ist der (bestenfalls ebenfalls weiße) Garderobenständer unumgänglich. Ich darf darüber spötteln, ich gehöre zur gleichen Blogger-Fraktion: Weiße Bettwäsche, weißer Kleiderständer, weißer Marmor. Aber was ist dran an der ollen Kleiderstange?

Oh Stella || Stella McCartney Sunglasses

Read Article →

Over the moon. Literally. These Stella McCartney sunglasses made my day. Stella McCartney is more than just fabulous, isn't she? This woman has brains and guts. And a terrible good taste. I can't help but wonder: Is she the only animal rights activist in the big fashion universe?

drop the cookie | THE BODY BOOK by Cameron Diaz

Read Article →

I have a confession to make. I am a sugar addict. Another (even more) embarrassing fact: I have cried once because I couldn't have ice-cream. Nope, I wasn't five years old at that time. I was trying to quit cold turkey on sugar and my other half, sitting right next to me, was enjoying some ice-cream. There, I have said it and I can't take it back. But: It made me think.

size matters | ACNE cardigan

Read Article →
Hello summer, it's about time you get here! June is knocking on the door. While I'm writing this I'm sitting - all bundled up - on my sofa. Outside - well - it's raining. Again, that is. The only thing that makes this weather acceptable is this perfect piece of clothing. This ACNE cardigan is oversized and overly perfect! Can you keep a secret?

CINÉMA by Yves Saint Laurent | perfume

Read Article →

Women and perfume. It's as complicated as women and shoes, right? I know that some of us do actually have a signature scent. I'm big into long-term relationships, but I can't do that with my perfume. It's like every year (that's wishful thinking, I know) I have a new favorite. But one thing is sure, when it comes to perfume Yves Saint Laurent always nails it. I love Parisienne and when my other half (long-term relationship!) came home with YSL's Cinéma as a gift, I was over the moon. It's a beautiful sensual scent, seductive and startling ...

Black, grey - maybe navy. When it comes to colors, "safety first" is my motto. Even more since I decided to build the perfect minimalist wardrobe. But no rule without exception - chances are that my best companion during spring and summer will be a red one!
