ENG: We are back in Los Angeles! As you have maybe already recognized, we were only two days in L.A. in the beginning of last week before we headed to Dallas for an Affiliate Marketing conference. Since yesterday we are back in the Californian sun and we are already looking forward to having a great time here. The conference in Dallas was hosted by Rewardstyle and dealt with trends and developments in the context of influencer marketing. For me it was especially interested to get insights in the American market, in addition to that I had some interesting strategy workshops, brand meetings as well as cool parties in the evening.

Favorites of the week

To Do: After our short stay in L.A. last week, we are now willing to get to know the city at the west coast and find nice spots between Hollywood and Santa Monica. The lifestyle here is contagious in a positive way and very relaxed, so the city definitely invites to a longer stay and high comfort factor. As you can probably imagine, we have already planned several day trips and you are very welcome to follow us via Instagram and Instagram Stories here in and around Los Angeles. :-)

Your favorite post of the week: Los Angeles Rooftop w/ Paula´s Choice

New In: To be honest there was no time so far for shopping here in the USA, so that I can only report from my new Edited achievements, that I got before we started our trip to the States: a cute off shoulder dress, a cool two tones jeans as well as a white colored maxi dress with laces.

ENG: After several weeks of preparation for our first stay in Los Angeles, we are finally arrived in West Hollywood since the beginning of this week. It is our first stay at the west coast and it is an adventure and experience in a positive manner likewise, especially the people’s open-minded and relaxed character is very contagious. For getting attention you should have a well-trained body or a special dress style, nevertheless with regard to the Californian sun everything is focused on the motto: Less is more! My own outfit consists of a casual off shoulder top in white as well as a striped shorts but this should not be the central point this time because today I would like to introduce a set of skincare products from Paula’s Choice for the right protection against and care for strong solar radiation. The philosophy at Paula’s Choice is especially aligned with a fair price-performance ratio and the highest quality claims of the single products. I could create my own picture and would now like to  enlarge on some of my personal favorites. I have tested the a sun protection spray called „SUNSCREEN Spray Broad Spectrum SPF 43“, that combines not only protection components but also a soft feeling and gloss on the skin. In addition to that I am very addicted to the „RESIST Youth-Extending Daily Hydrating Fluid SPF 50“ as product against the sun with anti aging aspects rolled into one. In order to reach a regular clear, fresh and younger looking skin tone, you should try the „RESIST Daily Pore-Refining Treatment With 2% BHA“, that fights against all signs of aging and is suited for daily use.

The best thing: With the voucher code „AYLIN15“ you can get 15% off on everything between the 20th until the 25th April 2017 without a minimum order value (this code cannot be combined with other promotions). Get to the shop and draw a picture on your own of these very recommendable products from my point of view.

Last Wednesday I have been in Munich with stylight in order to produce a new episode of the so called Style Loft, I am already very excited about the result and will definitely let you know about the broadcast in advance. In addition to that I immediately decided to lengthen my eyelashes at Adam & Eve in Hamburg and I am so looking forward to having a mascara free time. :-)

ENG: Welcome back Germany! After a long journey we are finally back in Hamburg and start the Easter week with a lot of energy and enthusiasm. We spent the second part of our beautiful Maldives holiday in the awesome Park Hyatt, an oasis of calm and relaxation. Even in this resort we enjoyed every day to the fullest and could also see some smaller sharks at our guided house reef tour. On Instagram I have already published some pictures from this time, within a short time even here on the blog there will follow more detailed reports from our experiences and adventures.

ENG: Best wishes from the Maldives, the paradise on earth! I have no words to express, how incredibly beautiful and idyllic this place is. The ocean is crystal clear, the beaches are snow-white, palms are lush green and fishes are inconceivable colorful. As you recognize, I am very euphoric and this is based on the fact, that I can now and officially call myself „fiancée“. Yes, after our almost nine-year-old relationship I have got a marriage proposal at a dreamful sunset on our private terrace and of course I am so happy at the moment. The exhausting arrival with more than 18 hours was absolutely worth it, we really enjoy every second and will record the variety on impressions for you during the next days.
Currently we are staying at the amazing Amari Havodda being located 400 kilometers south of the capital Malé and thus it is almost on the same level like the equator. The humidity is high in fact but the scenery in terms of the sun, seawater and the absolute silence is just phenomenal and for me the dream on paradise on earth come true. Our retreat consists of an overwater villa with an own access to the ocean as well as an open air bathroom, most of the time we are snorkeling and could already spot some dolphins and baby sharks, unfortunately turtles were not part of our underwater activities so far.
Rarely I have recommended something with so much own enthusiasm like this place and you can be sure, that I will share further impressions during the next days with you.

Favorites of the week:

To Do: So, what can I say?! We are enjoying our time here to the full and we will further create appealing content, even a short mood video is planned but concerning the result I would like give no guarantees. ;-) On the top of the to do list is definitely the viewing of turtles, cross your fingers, that we will be successful. On Tuesday we will head to the Park Hyatt and of course we are already looking forward to it.

ENG: Today I would like to introduce my first weekly focus from our new flat and it feels so great. Yesterday we have spontaneously started with the first packing cases and could already establish a rather homely atmosphere after our wooden floorboards were cultivated once again. During the next days everything will be finished and I am already looking forward to it. As soon as everything is done, I will let you know via Instagram Stories! :-)
Maybe you have recognized, that I was invited to Frankfurt over the weekend by s.Oliver in order to celebrate the launch of the brand’s new Fusion Collection. The event and fashion show were absolutely worth seeing and attractively displayed, the whole atmosphere in the festival hall was exuberant. Soon there will follow a more detailed post about it here on the blog. In addition to that I have visited a lovely friend for getting a hair refreshment and I can highly recommend her for issues concerning balayage, hair densification and cut. She is a specialist in this matters here in Hamburg, so just let me know, should you be interested in her contact data.

Favorites of the week

To Do: Hard to believe but this week we will finally head to the Maldives and my pleasant anticipation is huge by now. Until then, we will try to furnish our flat as far as possible for enjoying the Maldives paradise to the full. As you know it from previous trips, I will take you with me via my different Social Media channels.

ENG: A couple of weeks ago, I was invited by Escada to celebrate the latest limited summer fragrance „Escada Fiesta Carioca“ and their 25th anniversary. Together with Sofia, Farina, and a few journalists, we learned a lot about the creation and developement of the fragrance. Did you know that Escada launches a new limited summer fragrance every year? It is always different to the last, while still smelling fresh, summery, fruity, and joyful each time. The anniversary fragrance is inspired by Carioca from Brazil. The unique love for life and colorful festivities is mirrored in the sweet and fresh fragrance, with elements of passionfruit, raspberry, and orange. The flacon has a different colorful design every year, that screams for summer and holiday.

Since our trip, the fragrance is close to me at all times and reminds me of the five days in Tenerife and all the positive aspects I experienced like great weather, delicious food, fantastics conversations, and lots of fun. During the last two days, our group was joined by the girls of Eyecandy Berlin for a few photo shoots at the best spots on the island. You can see the results further down or on Farina and Sofias website.

For you to have the opportunity to experience this lovely trip, we organized a wonderful competition. The lucky winner has a chance of winning a fully packed suitcase (with a total value of more than 800€) with cool summer essentials for the next holiday. You can win a big pineapple air mattress, a letter charm necklace from NA-KD, a lovely round beach towel, a sleeping mask, a gorgeous Escada clutch in red, that wore during the shooting, and of course our Escada Fiesta Carioca fragrance. In addition to these amazing prizes, a few other great products are included. Get ready to be surprised!

ENG: A rather unspectacular week in Hamburg is over now. There were indeed some interesting meetings but the focus was definitely on dealing with the annoying accounting paperwork, pushing ahead our upcoming move as well as preparing the last matters for our next, exciting journey. At this point there is in fact nothing more worth mentioning but you can be sure, that with the final move and two overseas trips during the next weeks there will be waiting a lot of fascinating content for you, here on the blog as well as on my further Social Media channels – promise! :-)

Favorites of the week

To Do: Even this week is once again dominated by the new flat because we have still to make some final decisions before we can realize the move during the next days. At the weekend we will also head to Frankfurt with s.Oliver in order to celebrate the brand’s new Fusion Collection. Have a look on Instagram Stories and Facebook next Saturday in order to be part of the collection’s presentation, the Fashion Show as well as the Aftershow Party with a special guest. Everything else in the context of the new s.Oliver collection will follow in the course of this week. ;-)

New In: Last week I have got the new Karl Lagerfeld bag in blue. In addition to that I have ordered a silver colored vinyl pants with the perfect fit for me, a new bikini as well as a beautiful white colored skirt. Nevertheless my highlight last week was the arrival of my so beloved Gucci Princetown loafer in rose metallic (similar here), this time even with my own initials „A.K.“. I have composed the loafer at the DIY-Gucci-Program three months ago and I am so happy now with the final result.

ENG: I have spent my last week in Hamburg and it was a very good decision after the European Fashion Weeks in the recent past. I could work off organizational issues, deal with accounting subjects, shoot collaborations and forward the move into our new flat. Therefore my Instagram Stories account was rather quite and unspectacular during the last week. In the end of this month we will head to the Maldives, after that we will take a flight to Los Angeles but for this trip we have still to handle some organizational topics in advance. Of course we are already looking forward to the warmer days and a short break at these great destinations.

Favorites of the week

To Do: Even this week we will spend our time in Hamburg for dealing with the new flat and upcoming move. At least in theory we have already everything furnished but as you can probably well imagine, there is still a lot to do, when considering that the flat is completely empty. I get as excited as a little kid to show you the rooms on Instagram Stories, where I will capture the establishment progress.

ENG: I am back from Paris and the Fashion Week marathon, in fairness I am looking forward to the next weeks in Hamburg because I can now better handle and focus on our upcoming move. Not only in Paris, but also in Milan and London before, I was allowed to realize inspiring shows, interesting events as well as exciting meetings. Even if it was my first stay in London this year, Paris is and remains my favorite concerning fashion and lifestyle. The selection of hip labels is huge there, even the dress style of many Parisian if very inspiring and influential. The end of my stay consisted of a common VOGUE film shooting with Lena, the topic of the four-part film series is „Being a blogger“ and I am already pretty excited about the results.

Favorites of the week

To Do: This week I have to spent a lot of time at the desk in order to work on administrative issues as well as for further planning our move. The pleasant anticipation to our new flat is growing on a daily base but until the final moving it is still a long way. In general I am looking forward to the next weeks in Hamburg because I can spend more time with my cute French bulldog because in the end there is no place like home. :-)

Your favorite post of the week: weekly focus 08 ´17

New In: During the last week I was convinced by the new H&M trend division arrivals, so that I had directly to order new pieces from this collection. I have decided in this context for this lovely one shoulder blouse, a volant blouse in rose as well as a blue colored tulle dress. At Westwing in turn I have found a rose colored velvet pouf, a clothes rail in white and some stylish lighting letters. The new flat is slowly suited to be furnished. :-)
