House of Small Wonder

It is the little things in life one must learn to appreciate, because everyday life is not about the big wonders; it’s all about the small wonders that make the journey of life so much more enjoyable. Just like a delicious breakfast with your best friend at a wonderful place full of light and plants. Just around the corner of… Read more →

ORA in Kreuzberg

ORA in Kreuzberg

Isn’t it weird how we pass by buildings day in day out, knowing nothing about their rich history and the wonders and tragedies their thick walls might be concealing? With all of its windows covered in brown paper I didn’t look at Oranien-Apotheke in Kreuzberg twice. And why would I? How interesting can a closed pharmacy possibly be? Until one… Read more →

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 →

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 →

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 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 →

Nature Inspired Beauty With St. Ives

After months of mainly fashion and food posts, I finally have another beauty post for you, as St. Ives kindly invited me to their nature inspired beauty event at the quaint little Daisy Green Food Café the other day. St. Ives produces high quality yet affordable face and body scrubs inspired by nature. The gentle apricot scrub, for example, is… Read more →

Blanchette

Blanchette

Who else is majorly annoyed by the no-bookings policy of some of London’s hippest culinary temples? Not cool restaurant managers…not cool. I’m not British, queuing is not part of my chemistry. In fact, I hate queuing with a passion, and outright refuse to queue for food. Now it all wouldn’t be such a big problem if my friends shared my… Read more →

Amsterdam Day 2

Amsterdam Day 2

Day 2 in Amsterdam started off with an early breakfast in the hotel restaurant. We knew it was gonna be a long day, so we stuffed our faces with scrambled eggs, croissants, cheese and fruit and then made our way to Forever21, where Wendy from Fashionchick.nl and two visual merchandisers, Joey and Marco were already waiting for us with empty… Read more →

Amsterdam Day 1

Amsterdam Day 1

It already seems like a lifetime ago that Fashionchick invited me and three other lovely blogger girlies from Germany, France and the Netherlands to spend a fashion-packed weekend in Amsterdam. It was like a sweet dream I never wanted to end, but here I am, back in London, my suitcase still unpacked and reality finally catching up with me. Every… Read more →
