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.

Have a lovely week!

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!

ENG: We are back from Los Angeles and have spent the first nights in our flat. I love to travel, discovering new places, being on the move but also to come home after every trip. L.A. is definitely an impressive and multifaceted city, whose contrast between wealth and poverty is huge in many places, so there will remain memories with mixed feelings for me. Within my last „weekly focus“ I have already told about my favored places in this city, therefore we just had to drive to Santa Monica once again during the last week for enjoying the sun and ocean. In addition to that we have visited the Universal Studios due to my last weeks‘ birthday and it was really excited to get behind the scenes impressions from big Hollywood productions and to discover the Harry Potter attractions. ;-)

Favorites of the week

To Do: After a longer time of traveling there are tasks and obligations, that were left behind and have to be dealt with during the next days. Nevertheless there are already some new, promising events and projects, to which I will tell you more about pretty soon. :-)

Your favorite post of the week: Girls Day in LA | Melrose Avenue

New In: Oh well, I felt totally in love with the latest adidas Originals collection, so that I had to buy this shirt in rose and baby blue in Los Angeles. In this context I have also ordered the appropriate adidas hoodies in the same color (rose & blue), you know my preference for oversized hoodies in any variation. Even in L.A. I fell victim to this passion and have ordered the red and pastel-colored hoodie from the brand Champion based on a much cheaper price, than in Germany. Last but not least I could also find suited Gucci sneaker after a long search at the Heathrow airport in London and even here I could save more than 200€ towards the price in Germany for the same model. All in all I am very happy with my new achievements.

I have tried to capture our time in Los Angeles in small film sequences and have already „produced“ a video for getting a personal impression of our experiences and feelings. Take a look inside and leave your honest feedback about positive, negative or even missing things, you would connect with such a film.

Have a lovely week!

ENG: The last week in Los Angeles has started and even if we are here for some time, we could only visit a few places and locations within this city. L.A. is incredibly wide and there are lots of great spots to discover, we have a number of favorites so far in terms of Santa Monica, Venice Beach, the Rodeo Drive and Melrose Avenue as well as the Runyon, especially the luxurious Rodeo Drive and the breathtaking view from the Runyon belong to our highlights of the last week. The city is multifaceted and offers not only amazing shopping opportunities but also diverse viewpoints and hiking tours, which I did not know before in this manner. In any case we have gathered lots of impressions and moments with our camera and hopefully we can introduce our small video production as soon as possible.

Favorites of the week

To Do: Today is my birthday and I am already looking forward to spending my day here in L.A. We are starting the day with a lunch at the Gracias Madre and will end the day on the rooftop of the Mama Shelter hotel with a dinner and some refreshing drinks. In addition to that a visit of the Universal Studios is pending and even if this attraction is pretty touristy, I am so excited about getting behind the scenes insights from some big Hollywood productions. Last but not least I am also looking forward to our daily trip to San Diego because I have heard so much positive things from this city, so my pleasant anticipation is according to this very high.

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: Dear ones, at the moment I am sitting in the airplane for getting to Los Angeles and I am so happy about having wifi access. During the last week we spent most of the time in our new flat, met friends and enjoyed the Easter time at home with our family. 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.

Favorites of the week

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 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.
