Spring has Sprung

Spring has Sprung

Spring has finally sprung in Berlin….at least that’s what it looks like right now. You can never trust the weather in Germany; especially not in April. But hey, diverse weather makes for a diverse wardrobe, right? Although it was still quite chilly when I went home for Easter, the sun was shining like there was no tomorrow, and so I… Read more →

Cookies Cream

Cookies Cream

Thinking of dining out at Berlin’s hippest vegetarian restaurant? Be prepared for an evening full of adventures – and not only those of the culinary kind. The first challenge for any visitor, who isn’t in the know, will be locating the door. How hard can it be to find the entrance to a restaurant right? Riiiiiight! Hidden away in a… Read more →

What Defines Us

What Defines Us

Sometimes doors close. Sometimes we have to let go. Sometimes we need to let things come to an end. These words of wisdom may sound completely cheesy, and easier said than done, but they’re very important to remember. It’s simple really. Just cry your heart out, cut yourself some slack, embrace the next morning, and then lean back, take a… Read more →

Distrikt Coffee

Distrikt Coffee

Am I an avid coffee drinker? No! Call me crazy, but the taste just doesn’t do it for me. The fact that I’m still haunted by nightmares about my teachers’ coffee breath doesn’t exactly strengthen the case for drinking coffee either. Is there anything more horrid than starting the day with a whiff of someone else’s coffee breath? Ermm…no! That… Read more →

External Influences

External Influences

I hate to admit it, but I recently realised that the looks I choose to wear on a daily basis are much less a reflection of my mood, my soul, my inner self, than they are of my surroundings, the city I’m in, the people I am out with. That is not to say that I would ever compromise on… Read more →

Angel Whisperer

Angel Whisperer

…sometimes at dawn, when we’re not exactly sure whether we’re awake or asleep, or at dusk, when shadows form, which let us doubt our feelings, we feel an invisible presence, a whisper, a flutter, a wing stroke, the feeling that something is caressing our cheeks…something we can’t define. These are the angels that surround us, that come and go. They… Read more →

Kopps

Kopps

The one thing I was looking forward to the most when I moved to Berlin was eating my way through the city’s veggie and vegan restaurants…naturally. I was super surprised to find out that there were meat-free food places at literally every corner of the city. And even the meaty places serve most of their dishes with tofu instead of… Read more →

The Apple of my Eye

The Apple of my Eye

At the risk of sharing just a tad too much of my personal live with the rest of the world, I kinda feel like talking about the apple of my eye today – my little power duo. Or should I call them the appleS of my eyeS? They’re both very unique characters, so I guess I should really be using… Read more →

Upside Down

Upside Down

Beauty. Beauty is an elusive concept. It may lie in the eyes of the beholder, but even those eyes have a change of heart sometimes. According to science, symmetry is perceived as beautiful. The more symmetrical somebody’s facial features are the more attractive they look to others. But what about love, and hate? Often our feelings for a person determine… Read more →

Fierce in Black and White

Fierce in Black and White

I don’t know about you, but for me, fashion is not only about parading the latest trends and creating eye-catching compositions. First and foremost, it’s about feeling save, happy and strong. “Fashion is the armor to survive the reality of everyday life” – literally and metaphorically – and it lets us express our feelings and emotions without having to say… Read more →

Transit Berlin Mitte

Transit Berlin Mitte

Not so hidden away on busy Rosenthaler Str. in Berlin Mitte, Transit is great for lovers of food sharing and a young, hip(ster) crowd. The menu comprises a wide range of savoury Southeast Asian tapas, with dishes like the Party Girl consisting of fresh and spicy green papaya salad, or Catch The Fish made of yummy crispy shark catfish filet… Read more →

That Time of Year

That Time of Year

It’s that time of the year again. The days are finally getting longer, the sun is coming out more and more often, temperatures are slowly but steadily crawling their way back above the 0°C mark, and birds are chirping off the roofs. Spring is in the air. Finally! The weeks just after Christmas are always the bleakest. The wonderful Christmas… Read more →

#NeverEnough

#NeverEnough

#NeverEnough! The perfect hashtag for an avid shopaholic like me, and of course every fashion, beauty, travel and food blogger out there, and basically everyone with a steady income stream, and probably everyone else too. #NeverEnough…who doesn’t want more? We all want more of one or the other thing. Some of us can’t get enough of shoes, others are lipstick… Read more →

Tired of London, Tired of Life?

What Defines Us Turned One

What Defines Us turned one, and I missed it. Exactly one year and three days ago my baby celebrated its very first birthday, and I completely forgot about it. Not even the fact that my life is still a super turbulent rollercoaster ride can excuse the fact that I managed to forget my blog’s birthday. Or can it? I’d love… Read more →
