ENG: Back from Ibiza, we are already in London and looking forward to having some nice days in this breathtaking city. Nevertheless I would like to emphasize to what extent we felt in love with this small Balearic Island and for this reason there will follow an own post about our time, special moments and recommendations. There are lots of relaxing bays, domestic restaurants and trendy hippie markets, that have to be shared and we would like to do so in our own manner soon. :-)

Favorites of the week

To Do: As I have already mentioned above, we are currently staying in London in order to spend our time from tomorrow on with Net-A-Porter at the lovely Soho Farmhouse. It will be an athletic and very international day, therefore we are already looking forward to having two exciting and thrilling days. From Thursday morning on, I will take a flight to Greece for being part of the launch of the new Sani Dunes Resort (6 stars hotel) in the context of a press trip with some other influencer. Of course I am looking forward to the amazing hotel, other girls and brands as well as the summery feeling on the Greek islands. Wherever I will find myself during the next days, I will take you with me via Instagram.

New In: Even if the speculation, that I have been very active concerning my shopping activities on Ibiza, I have to disappoint you. Just a statement shirt from Mango is now my own, in addition to that I have already told you via Instagram from the new „Kenzo World“ summer fragrance being available since the 1st June this year. I am totally keen on the freshness and easiness of the perfume, the pleasant touch of peonies and jasmine is very beneficial and especially with regard to the summer a grateful refreshment. Have you already seen the amazing campaign video on Youtube? The video has more than 6 million views and is more than worth seeing, however I can really recommend it.

Have a lovely week!

ENG: ¡Hola from Ibiza! At the moment I am sitting at the pool of the ME Ibiza and write the new „weekly focus“ in a beautiful atmosphere. We took the first flight this morning at 06:00am from Hamburg in order to get to this amazing island and of course I cannot await to explore all the hotspots here. Last week I have completely stayed in Hamburg and besides some meetings and projects, I have tried to spend the free time with friends. On Thursday evening for example, we had a very funny girls night at the Anita Hass summer party, on Saturday in turn we have joined the Aspria summer party. By the way, I can all of you recommend the Aspria as lifestyle club based on its modern training zone, wellness area and restaurant with moments of well being guaranteed. However we really like the pleasant atmosphere of the club, even a tennis match is planned for the upcoming weeks after a long time of abstinence. :-)

Favorites of the week

To Do: This week we spend our time on Ibiza for the collaboration with Net-A-Porter and its temporary vacation shop „Jet-A-Porter“ in order to create summery and inspirational content. I am already looking forward to the shooting results and will show you the material during the next days here on the blog as well as on Instagram. Besides the „daily work“, we try to enjoy the Balearic sun and ocean, even the island’s discovery is a must have this week for us. Already next week we will head to London for the Net-A-Porter collaboration but more details in this context follow soon.

Your favorite post of the week: MAGNUM x MOSCHINO | Summer feeling

New In: Via Instagram I have introduced my new „Open Bangle“ from Pandora, that is customizable and predestinated for layering reasons and in addition to that the perfect gift for your beloved ones. As you already know, I am a huge Pandora fan and love to wear the brand’s jewelry at differential occasions, no matter if rings or bracelets. Furthermore I have realized a new haul with NA-KD pieces based on the great feedback on my first one. Even this time I am pretty happy about your positive reaction and all the requests concerning single items, so I decided to convert my IG story here on the blog in terms of a widget listing. :-)

Have a lovely week!

MAGNUM x MOSCHINO | Summer Feeling

MAGNUMxMOSCHINO

ENG: As I have recently got the cooperation request from MAGNUM x MOSCHINO, I directly confirmed without hesitating for a second because even as a child I have decided most of the time for a Magnum ice and furthermore I am totally keen on the whole campaign. The international leading ice brand has lately launched two new flavors of the popular Magnum Double being famous for its cracking effect and the tasty sauces. Besides the new sort „Magnum Double Raspberry“, I have decided for the second version called „Magnum Double Coconut“, that is simply delicious and refreshing as well. Both flavors are combined under the official slogan: „Release the Beast“ – at Magnum Double you convert from a sweet tooth to a tiger.

In the course of the new flavors Magnum and Jeremy Scott, Creative Director at Moschino, have created in common the limited MAGNUM x MOSCHINO bag collection according to the motto „Dare to go Double“. The collection’s idea is to encourage people to show their wild side and to enjoy gourmet moments to the fullest without any doubts, what other people would think about it. The luxury „Capsule Collection“ is limited and consists of overall seven different designs, every bag is identified by a summery color and a fearless animal character in order to express courage and determination. Since the end of May the collection is available for a limited period on Moschino.com for the price of €250 (RRP). In addition to that everyone has the chance to win each week one of the bags at http://www.Magnumicecream.com until the 30th June – in this sense: Good luck!

I often show courage in connection with my outfits and the corresponding accessories, especially in Hamburg I am getting regularly glances of surprise concerning my shoes, bags and dresses, however I am wearing everything with conviction and love! In this case I have combined a destroyed jeans with my beloved mules being the perfect color match with the Moschino bag as well as a knitted oversized top.

ENG: I think two „weekly focus“ posts in a row on my blog is a novelty but last week was completely characterized by family affairs and my corresponding stay in the Turkish Izmir/Cesme. To be honest the short „internet detox break“ was a good decision for gathering new energy and spending time with the most important people in life, the family. Now I can start the new week and exciting projects in a good mood and clear head. In addition to that I have joined a blogger flea market in Hamburg under perfect weather conditions and with lots of well-known and familiar faces around me. It was definitely a funny and successful day.

Favorites of the week

To Do: This week is starting with a very special appointment, in fact it is about our first meeting with a wedding planer for exchanging ideas and talking about the wedding’s details. You cannot imagine, how much I am looking forward to the marriage in general and all the planning around it. Otherwise I have several evening events this week like that one next Saturday in terms of the summer party at the lifestyle club Aspria. Even my hair gets a special treatment this Wednesday, when I am visiting my lovely and very talented friend Kathleen.

Your favorite post of the week: weekly focus 22 | 17 

New In: In the course of my Net-A-Porter collaboration and its launch of the vacation shop „Jet-A-Porter“ I was allowed to choose some promising products like this beautiful playsuit by Zimmermann or these extravagant Gucci loafers with pearls being an object of desire for some time past. In addition to that I could not resist to pick a new velvet product, this time in terms of the very stylish and comfortable Adiletten. Apart from that it was rather quiet concerning new achievements last week but take care… some lovely online shops have already started their summer sale and you should definitely take a look at them, my personal favorites are MATCHESFSHION, Farfetch and Fashionette make yourself a picture of it. In this sense: Happy Shopping! :-)

Have a lovely week!

ENG: Probably you have already recognized, that I am staying in Izmir with my parents since last Friday in order to visit my grandparents and the Turkish part of the family. Within my last „weekly focus“ I could not write anything about it based on the fact, that we wanted to surprise everyone with my visit. Arrived in Izmir, we drove directly to Çesme/Alaçatı, a small resort at the west coast of Turkey for enjoying the special flair and drinking a delicious Çay (Turkish tea). Probably most of you know the Turkish Riviera but this part of the country is much less touristic and offers great food and a picturesque atmosphere. I can really recommend it for a pleasant and relaxed getaway.

Favorites of the week

To Do: I will be in Turkey until Friday and try to make kind of detox concerning the internet and my Social Media activities. At the weekend I am going to take my return flight to Germany for getting back in my daily routine and „work“ in general.  Right on Sunday there will be hosted a new blogger flea market in the beautiful Speicherstadt, here you can find the link to the official Facebook event with all relevant information. Head over this day, I will be there and would love to see and meet you between lots of cool clothes and in a stylish atmosphere.

Your favorite post of the weekSummer Trend | white dresses

New In: At home there is already waiting a dreamful package from Revolve with the following pieces inside: two dresses in white and green, a destroyed jeans, a white colored jeans shorts, an off shoulder blouse as well as a striped medi dress. In addition to that I have decided for a summery, green colored Gucci bag at Net-A-Porter and you can imagine, that I cannot hardly wait until its arrival. During the next weeks we will realize several projects with Net-A-Porter and the new vacation edit Jet-A-Porter, I am already looking forward to introduce lots of different items and outfits here on the blog as well as on Instagram. Stay tuned, it is worth it. :-)

Have a lovely week!

ENG: At the moment I am staying in Turkey, more precisely in the beautiful city of Izmir with more than 30 degrees in the shade and of course I took the chance to pack my bags with predominant white dresses. Based on the fact, that you regularly ask me via Instagram and IG-Stories about the origin of my white dresses, I would now like to introduce my favored selection of them. White dresses belong to the summer, like no other piece of clothing for me. Even if the current weather in Germany is not the best one, we all know, that the summer and warmer days will definitely come back, hopefully soon. ;-)

I wish all of you beautiful Pentecost and send sunny greetings from Izmir! I am exciting, which of the dresses is your favorite on, however I am totally enthusiastic about every one.

ENG: Based on the fact, that I could not say, from where I would post my this week’s focus, I can now give information about it: At the moment I am staying in my hometown Hamburg and say this in detail because we have thought about a trip to Spain until the last weekend. However with regard to my short-term journey to Turkey in the end of this week and the fantastic weather here in Hamburg at the moment, I am glad to remain at home for a couple of days and can thus spend more quality time with family and friends. What exactly I will do in Turkey and what will await me, is part of the next „weekly focus“, in addition to that there will be several exciting projects and journeys in June and July through Europe, so you can expect multifaceted content and hopefully fascinating field reports in the near future here on the blog as well as on Instagram.

Favorites of the week:

To Do: This week is starting in a smooth mood, so that we can work on rather unspectacular themes like archiving and accounting, even for self-employed blogger it is part of the daily business. Besides my joy about the successful project planning during the last days with travel destinations like Formentera, London, Chalkidiki and Berlin, I am especially looking forward to my stay in Turkey, until then I have a few commitments. By the way, this very day you can get 20% off with the code „AylinK20“ on the whole assortment of the fashion online shop NA-KD. Check it out, it’s worth it.

Your favorite post of the weekSummer in Hamburg

New In: With regard to new achievements, I can tell you a lot. I am especially happy about my new Chloé Susanna boots in suede beige, being a cooperation product from Farfetch. Even the black version of the boots really enjoyed me, so now I am very glad about the rather summery model, that is particularly suitable for combinations with white dresses from my point of view. In addition to that I have ordered a long skirt and a plaid one shoulder dress, from Asos I got a further dress and a white colored lace skirt. Next week I will show you my new pieces from Net-A-Porter, Revolve and Mother Denim, so stay tuned.

BTW – ONLY TODAY – 20% OFF ON ALL ITEMS AT ASOS!!!

ENG: „Beauty to drink“, with this slogan ELASTEN is promoting the own collagen drinking ampoules. Even several months ago, I got the request to test this miracle weapon and of course I did not hesitate one second to confirm for getting an own idea, if the regular intake of the drinking ampoules would lead to a tighter skin.
As pre information it should be mentioned, that human bodies are loosing their physical efficiency slowly but regularly from 25 years on. For sure there are differences from human to human concerning the aging process, even though I am 27 and I would not like to make me older, than my true age, I am recognizing more and more small laugh lines, dry skin areas as well as my frown line being more visible by now, appears to be very comfortable on my skin. The request had the perfect timing, so since already four months I am drinking every morning a small ampoule and I can definitely confirm, that my complexion is much better, than in the past. What is so special about ELASTEN?
The drinking ampoules consist of a combination of specific collagen peptides, the acerol fruit extract, vitamins and zink. Collagen itself gives the skin more structure and stability, vitamin C in turn contributes to the normal collagen formation in the deeper skin layer. Biotin and zinc preserve the healthy skin appearance. Thus the collagen peptides in ELASTEN support an attractive and younger outward appearance of the skin, what I can definitely confirm with a clear conscience. A few weeks ago, a reader asked me via Instagram-Direct, that my skin would seem to be well-proportioned and healthier, even if I had not referred to ELASTEN. Collagen is part in many cremes and masks but the liquid variation in terms of the drinking ampoules, being available in common pharmacies, is absolutely recommendable.

Enjoy your public holidays!

ENG: It is time again for Monday, so that I would like to introduce a short weekly review as well as a preview concerning the upcoming days. For a long time we have spent a whole week in Hamburg and to be honest we have enjoyed it to the fullest. In the meantime the production of regular content and arrangement of new blog projects is part of our daily business but just now there are lots of exciting discussions with attractive brands, that make me very happy and certainly I can tell you more about it in detail pretty soon. Besides some meetings like the press breakfast at Denham last Friday, last week’s highlight was definitely our inauguration and engagement party with an incredible atmosphere and our best friends in a private context. I am still thinking about the funny evening and look already forward to the official wedding and an appropriate wedding party.

Favorites of the week

To Do: Actually we have planned to start a road trip to Italy with Mercedes-Benz in the end of this week but unfortunately we had to cancel our journey very short term, so at the moment we are thinking about to travel somewhere in Europe. Do you maybe have an insider tip for a special and recommendable place at the moment? From where I will publish my next „weekly focus“, I would not like to answer yet. ;-) For the time being we try to enjoy the summery weather in Hamburg and to further establish our new flat.

Your favorite post of the week: weekly focus 19 | 17

ENG: The first week in Germany is over and we are already back in the daily routine, especially the final furnishing of our new flat may take a considerable time. The weather during the last days has not let us down, we had some warm Spring days and took directly the chance for shooting new outfits. Besides the planning of current and upcoming blog projects, I try to spend a lot of my current time with family and friends because they are missing out in such cases, even if they are the most important thing in real life and care for the unforgettable moments.
Even if we are just arrived from the Maldives and L.A., the European summer is already casting its shadow with some promising trips, that hold exciting content ready and guarantee summery outfits. However I am really excited about it and as a matter of course I will take you with me via Instagram and here on the blog. :-)

Favorites of the week

To Do: This week is definitely characterized by our new flat, we are not only continuously engaged in furnishing but also in organizing a small inauguration and engagement party for the upcoming weekend. Furthermore there are several meetings during the next days and I am already looking forward to based on my preference for the face-to-face communication with persons in charge. Besides my passion for fashion and photography, I am just loving the development of new ideas and concepts for high-quality and inspiring blog projects, in which I can simply enjoy my life. Cross your fingers and be excited, the journey continues. ;-)

Your favorite post of the weekLos Angeles focus 

New In: After a desperate search for weeks concerning the Louis Vuitton backpack „Palms Spring Mini“, I can finally call it my own. This backpack was everywhere out of stock, allegedly sold out in whole Europe, even in L.A. I looked out for it and was eventually poised to pay a much higher price than in Germany but in the end there was no single chance. Fortunately to me I have visited the online shop once again after my daily and unsuccessful search in the recent past. I really love the backpack and have no further noteworthy achievements during the last days. :-)

Have a lovely week!
