ENG: After a very time-consuming week in Berlin, I have spent the last days predominantly in Hamburg for dealing with administrative issues. Just on last Tuesday I was heading to Dusseldorf for a day in order to attend the launch of the new rouge Interdikt lipstick from Givenchy Beauty. The whole event was very lovely, the atmosphere great, in addition to that I am totally in love with the Givenchy Beauty products, of which even the packaging looks very appealing. Otherwise I have taken a lot of time for my family and friends before I will head abroad on Wednesday for the next, exciting project. :-)

Favorites of the week

To Do: Wednesday morning I will take a flight to the sun and I am already looking forward to it, at the moment I am sitting on my desk and snow is omnipresent.

As you know it, I will take you with me via Snapchat and Insta stories.

What do you think?

ENG: As you have maybe recognized via Instagram or Snapchat, I was part of the GRAZIA Pop-Up breakfast during the Berlin Fashion Week. Before we were heading to the event location, I have received the winner from the GRAZIA competition in order to drive with them together to the Grosz restaurant with the Mitsubishi shuttle. From 9 am on lots of invited guests gathered there for starting into the day with an excellent breakfast. The actual highlight that day was outside at the entrance area in terms of the Mitsubishi Space Star, that can be equated with the perfect „city speedster“ based on its compact size and the great technical equipment.
After four hours of interesting and positive conversations as well as a saturated stomach, I headed back with the cool Mitsubishi shuttle to the Hotel de Rome, where I could sleep the whole Fashion Week. My outfit that day consisted of a conspicuous, stripped blouse with wide sleeves, a simple Closed jeans, an oversized coat from Joseph, gold colored GUCCI shoes as well as a velvet bag, also from GUCCI. A picture is worth a thousand words, so that enjoy the following impressions from the fantastic event.

ENG: Based on the fact, that I have been to Berlin for the Fashion Week during the last days, there was just too left time for writing a weekly focus but today I would like to catch up on it in a more extensive way. The Fashion Week was really brilliant but rarely such exhausting with regard to several obligations and appointments. Together with Laura we have made a cool film in my opinion, it was a lot of fun and hopefully you are similar thrilled like me.
I have visited lots of different shows like that ones from Holy Ghost, Julia Seeman, Marina Hoermanseder, Antonia Goy, Malaika Raiss or Odeeh, my personal favorite however was the show from William Fan. On Tuesday we have made a takeover of the CATRICE Instagram account, CATRICE was responsible for the lovely make-up during the shows in the Berliner Modesalon. On Wednesday in turn I was part of the GRAZIA Pop-Up breakfast in collaboration with Mitsubishi and the GRAZIA itself, more about this event will follow soon in terms of a separate blog post. For me a really succeeded week with lots of nice conversations, events and shows. :-)

In addition to that I have got these lovely gold colored Gucci Marmont shoes as a result from my first collaboration with Net-A-Porter.

ENG: As you have maybe already recognized, I will closely collaborate with Net-A-Porter in the near future, therefore I got the idea of creating a small NAP sale post, in which I have collected my favorite shop pieces. Based on the fact that the winter sale is already going into the last round, there are still several treasures, that are also perfect suited for the upcoming spring/summer season from my point of view. Hereafter you can find my favorites being reduced up to 80% off. In this sense: Happy shopping! ♥

The Year 2016

jahresrueckblick_2016

ENG: What a year! Today I would like to share some of my personal thoughts and impressions from this year and would already like to look into new and exciting projects in 2017.
The year 2016 was fascinating and eventful in many respects, there were nice and sad moments as well but in the end I am so grateful for all the different experiences and lovely people, that have made my year so special. An essential part of all my blog activities is the key issue fashion being able to inspire me and give me feelings of happiness. I was allowed to visit Fashion Weeks in whole Europe and I am always so enthusiastic of shows and events, that they are kind of a starting point for own outfit combinations. Especially the New York Fashion Week this summer was a very special highlight to me, the city is an epitome for street style and individualism from my point of view. Shows and shootings have made so much fun, your positive feedback at that time on the blog and Instagram was a great confirmation for our activities.
Besides Fashion Weeks and other blog related trips, our move to a dreamful old apartment next to the Outer Alster was a further highlight this year. The flat allows me to realize living and interior ideas, in the meantime we have created a cozy home and the perfect place of retreat in order to spend valuable time with family and friends at regular intervals. New ideas and „projects“ are already planned and will be further introduced here on the blog and Instagram in  2017. :-)
Until New Year’s Eve I will introduce day by day my personal fashion highlights on Instagram and I am already looking forward to share my preference for fashion and lifestyle themes with you on my Social Media channels during the next months. 2017 will definitely be an exciting year for us because my boyfriend is going to realize a six-monthly sabbatical as foundation for expanding blog related travel activities. For the first months we have already concrete travel plans in mind and will let you know more about it very soon.

I have made a collection of my favored looks from this year further down and would also like to thank you for all your comments and the permanent feedback. Should you have suggestions, ideas or wishes for new topics, sections or even postings, please let me know.

Looking forward to a common and exciting year 2017! Continue Reading…

ENG: Only a few days left in 2016, sometimes it feels quite strange how fast time is running. Last week on Wednesday I have visited the boutique Chanel Beauté for a vernissage from the chief make-up artist Martin Schmid in Hamburg. The atmosphere within the boutique was great, pictures and products have made the visit absolutely worth it. On Thursday in turn I was heading to the „Place to Be Award“, hosted by the „Bild-Zeitung“ in the Axel Springer publishing house in Berlin. First of all I have got a make-up styling from MAC Cosmetics and La Biosthetique for the award ceremony, after my Laudation I have fully enjoyed the after-show party. The following day we have used the time for a meeting in Berlin before heading back to Hamburg during the afternoon that day.

To Do: This week everything is focused on Christmas preparations because I have still to buy some gifts for my beloved ones. In addition to that I would like to realize some meetings before the public holidays. I am already looking forward to next year and new, exciting projects, that will be continuously introduced in the well-known manner here on the blog. Especially with regard to travel projects there are several plans on the way. ;-)

Your favorite post of the week: weekly focus #49

New In: As we were strolling through Berlin last Friday, I have immediately recognized these dreamful Valentino Rockstud heels as sale product. It was the last pair of shoes in my size, therefore I simply could not resist and just had to grab them. Apart from that I have also ordered a rose colored ACNE Canada scarf being predestinated for my current clothing style.

ENG: Do you know the feeling of getting down but there are always obligations in one’s back of the head like tasks from the do do list or the guilty conscience concerning the purchase of receivable Christmas gifts? Exact this feeling has overwhelmed me last week as I have quickly decided to ask my friend Lena, if she would like to spend a day at the Spa area of the Aspria Uhlenhorst. The Aspria is a member club, that combines fitness, healthiness and lifestyle under one roof and guarantees a high feel good factor. The atmosphere on-the-spot ist magical, no one is noisy or behave him-/herself inapposite, everyone enjoys the moment of silence and coziness. There are different pool and sauna areas, a salting room as well as a fireplace room and great restaurant. Unfortunately I always take too less time for those self-entered moments and neglect too often my needs for stress relaxation. Why not giving away a wellness day at the Aspria to the best friend or mother for Christmas? For me it is definitely sure, how recreative and pleasant the Aspria really is, in 2017 I would like to use more frequently its amenity and can highly recommend a membership or at least a day ticket – go for it!

New In: I am loving my Gucci Marmont velvet bag, since last week there is a version in light pink available at the online shop. Of course I had to order this color variation but I am still unsure, if I should keep the bag because it is pretty similar to the Chanel case. In addition to that I have ordered the production of my dream Gucci loafer from the DIY collection but I still have to wait 10 weeks until the completion with my own initials. I can hardly wait until introducing the loafer’s color, a real girlish dream! ;-)
