A couple of weeks ago my family came for a short weekend trip to London. While I love showing family and friends around and taking them to my favorite hotspots in town, lately I find myself wanting to explore more of the UK and share this experience. Since my family are frequent visitors and know all the tourist attractions as well as my favorite hot spots, I decided it’s time to take them on a day trip out of town. I had a very special place in mind – nestled away in the British countryside lies the Soho Farmhouse which belongs to the uber stylish member club chain Soho House and is the picture-perfect getaway for a weekend, it’s so close to London that you even can just go for the day and that’s what we did. read more
The other day I was doing some online shopping with nothing in particular I wanted or needed. Do you guys do that as well? Those trips always end up to be so expensive – oopsie… During my latest late night online shopping tour, I got stuck on H&M for the first time in ages and saw these white jeans culottes. I didn’t really know if they will suit me or if I even would end up keeping them, but somehow I really liked them right away and ordered them. Compared to my other pairs of culottes (here or here), these are a lot more dressed down and cool and I had a variety of outfit combinations in my mind before they even arrived. Plus, with these white jeans culottes in my closet, I can’t wait for the cooler months to roll in, because just imagine these pants with a heavy knit sweater and some cool booties… Doesn’t that sounds like an pretty awesome look? I hope you are all enjoying your week so far! read more
With my exam done, I find myself having enough time and energy for exiting weekend trips again. While I love going away for weekends, they do need a bit of prep & planing beforehand or otherwise those weekend getaways will start to be rather exhausting than relaxing. What to wear to travel is an important question, you want to feel comfortable sitting on the plane, train or car and ideally want to partly be able to recycle what you wear again to not overpack. Thinking about what you need in your carry on bag is just as important. Over time, my Rimowa bag and I have become pretty good friends and it rarely happens that I miss to bring something (even though that’s always how I feel when I’m at the airport!). Since May I’ve been twice to Mallorca, spend a weekend in Amsterdam, one in Berlin at my friend’s baby shower and went to Paris – a pretty packed schedule, but that’s just how I love it. To me, traveling and exploring new places is a way to relax and where I find most of my inspiration. Over the years, I created a small game for myself: find the best book to read while traveling. What for others probably is the duty free shop, is the book store for me. So many goodies there to find. So today, I’m showing you what you need in your carry on bag to make your life as easy as possible. read more
Is there a better place to debut my EDITED then in Berlin? I don’t think so, so here we go. While roughly 90% of all the jeans currently in my closet are high waisted, it took me some time to get used to the mom jeans look. To me, for a very long time it was a style reserved for very skinny girls with very long legs. Not necessarily a category I would count myself part of (hello short legs & burger love). I think everyone has particular parts of their bodies that make them feel insecure.
