Während unserer 5-wöchigen Vietnamreise durften wir auch zwei unvergessliche Nächte in dem Luxusresort L’Alyana Ninh Van Bay in Nha Trang verbringen. Wer unseren Vietnam Roadtrip verfolgt hat, weiß, dass wir ansonsten fast ausschließlich in wirklich preiswerten Homestays und Hostels übernachtet haben.
Anlässlich des 30-jährigen Jubiläums der IntercityHotels haben wir uns kurz vor Weihnachten auf den Weg in das neu eröffnete IntercityHotel im niedersächsischen Braunschweig gemacht.
Do you think there is any other fabric that is cooler, more versatile and more timeless than denim!? I. Don’t. Think. So. And if it was up to me, everything would be said for today. But unfortunately it’s not up to me – oh, wait – this is my fashion blog, isn’t it!? So, it is up to my. Well, great, that’s it! Have a wonderful weekend, everybody!

Mal ehrlich – gibt es ein nerviges Wehwehchen als Blasen an den Füßen? So sehr ich mich auf den Sommer und die „Barfuß-in-den-Schuhen-Saison“ freue, so sehr graut es mir auch davor, all die neuen Pumps und Sandaletten einzulaufen, die ich so über den Winter angesammelt habe. Versteht mich nicht falsch – ich freue mich natürlich riesig, meine neuen Schätze endlich tragen zu können, aber wir alle mussten wohl schon mal erfahren, wie undankbar neue Schuhe zu unseren Füßen sein können. Umso glücklicher bin ich, euch heute meine neuen Retter in der Not vorstellen zu dürfen: den Compeed Anti-Blasen Stick und die Compeed Blasenpflaster!
Day 14 in 2015. Coffee and chia pudding. I’m all set. A look at my to-do-list tells: there are just two things done out of more than twenty. And one of these two things is only done for the moment. Because, to be honest, „do the laundry“ disappears at least for 48 hours. I have no idea why it’s always like that, but if my hair from now on would grow as fast as my pile of washing does, I would turn into Rapunzel the day after tomorrow. And if I would be Rapunzel soon, I would be sitting in a tower and probably wouldn’t have any to-do-list (and any laundry problem either). But this idea causes a problem – where should I get a tower from that quickly? The only tower that comes to my mind is Colognes TV tower. And I guess I would have to pay a rack rent. I wonder if Rapunzel needed to pay a rent? Hopefully she had a Tangle Teezer to comb all of her hair. How high was her tower? I guess not as high as mine. Question is, if my prince will be able to save me. And do I really want to get rescued? It’s pretty cozy here with my OnePiece onesie. „Rapunzel, Rapunzel, let down your hair!“ „Splat!“ it goes and my pile of (laundry) hair hits the ground. Luckily, I’m wearing a Papanga, so I don’t get flung out of the window. My prince is carefully prepared – after drinking a green smoothie, he easily climbs up to my window. Beaming with joy he opens his hip bag and presents me with joy (… drum roll …) my to-do-list! „You forgot it at home!“, he says.
Shoes and chocolate. Do you think it’s only a cliche, that women especially love these two things? When I asked my friend Lena some days ago, if she likes me to bring along some chocolate from the industrial selling of Lindt, she answered: „No, thanks, I’m more like the chips type.“ Lack of understanding. Huh? No chocolate? I can’t believe it. But as we all know, exceptions prove the rule. And so everyone else that I asked, if I should bring along chocolate, responded with euphoric „Yeeees!“ messages. When it comes to shoes, I guess it’s more obvious. Or how would you explain the many „This pair, or this pair?“ shoe-shopping-pictures I receive from my friends monthly? And who would have thought: leader of shoe-shopping-pictures is Chips-Lena! Although we’ve taken to refuse confirming cliches, I have to admit: I’m in love with shoes and chocolate! Badly!

Days are getting shorter, it’s getting cold outside, maybe you’ve caught the first cold and it’s only some days until the christmas markets open their doors. Somehow it feels like I’ve never been more excited for Christmas as this year. The christmas magic already got me and so I’m looking forward to the first glühwein, the first roasted almonds, to baking cookies and to the first snow. I’m looking forward to buying presents and wrapping it up lovely. I can’t wait for these cozy Christmas evening with my beloved ones. And of course I’m looking forward to festive styles. Each and every year, some weeks before Christmas, I start to think about what I could wear for Christmas and New Year’s Eve. And one thing’s always definite: it has to sparkle! When it comes to Christmas, I use to go for typical Christmas colors like silver, gold, red and dark green. Here are three looks that I would love to wear for Christmas!
Trend color: Red. This time I got inspired by this beautiful fall / winter 2014 look by Prabal Gurung. But he wasn’t the only one that showed us a red-on-red look this fall / winter. And although I normally don’t feel attracted by pieces in red, I’ve fallen head over heels for „shades of red“ look this year. Where does it come from? As we know, red is the color of love – so could it be, that red touches our inner romantic side? Or do we just still think red is the expression of sensuality and passion?
The usual New Year’s Eve madness. There are almost 365 days in a year that we think about our outfit of the day, but it seems as if there’s no look that is more important and more well-considered than our New Year’s Eve look. While one of my friends decided some years ago to go to bed at 11 pm on each and every December 31 to keep herself from week-long planning and preparing, everybody else asks themselves two questions: What am I going to do? And what am I going to wear? The time lapse, when people start to plan their New Year’s Eve is long – I’ve got friends, who already ask me what we’re going to do in September (!!), but I’ve also got friends, who only right after Christmas happen to notice New Year’s Eve is coming. But sooner or later almost everyone gets grabbed by New Year’s Eve madness.
Yesterday, my friend Sarah (wo already took the last photos for my blog) and I shot two looks, that couldn’t be more different. You can see the first one in the pictures. Normally, I just dress how I feel to do – fashion as an expression of mood! But while we were shooting these two different looks I experienced once again, that you not only dress yourself depending on how you feel, but you also feel depending on how you’re dressed! So, fashion isn’t only an expression of our moods, it also effects on how we feel.
If you follow me on Instagram you may have already read some random facts about me, but because some of you asked for some facts here on the blog, I decided to give you some more – some may be interesting, some not.
Yesterday, one of my best friends took the pictures I show you today. We had so much taking the pictures, but we also truly started to sweat, because yesterday october surprised us with bombastic weather again. I didn’t expect october to be that sunny and warm and so I bought lots of fall pieces during the last weeks. One of my favorite buys is this oversized trench coat by asos.

To say it with Lenny Kravitz’ words: It ain’t over ’til it’s over. While the last week started with cold and rainy weather, I stopped hoping for some more sunny fall days. So you can image how happy I had been when the weather became warmer and more friendly during the weekend. And that’s exactly when the song „It Ain’t Over ’Til It’s Over“ came to my mind. And what holds true for love, also hold true for seasons. And so, on this sunny weekend, I had the feeling of summer again.
