These pictures were taken a few weeks ago when my boyfriend and I spent a few days in Berlin. I had a job interview (which didn’t work out in the end – which probably is a good thing) and Dominik decided to accompany me which was very nice! We stayed in a cute Hostel/Hotel hybrid called Schulz Hotels. I’m pretty sure it’s a chain but I can really recommend it. The price per night is really cheap, you can book breakfast or use the communal kitchens and decide between a private (more hotel style) or group room (like in hostels). We took these pictures on our second day in Berlin. We started out having coffee and croissants at a local café and then made our way over to the “Hackesche Markt”. It is described as (one of the many) creative centres in Berlin. After the war, many artists and…

Hello lovely people 🙂 Seeing as the last two posts were more about travel and places and not so much about fashion I thought I’d get some photos together that are just based around outfits and what I wore (… in different places). These photos were taken by my trusty photographer boyfriend when I went to visit him in Münster. I believe this was in February, where we had a few rays of sunshine and relatively warm weather – you could still wear this outfit now… which is why I wanted to share it. This outfit is made up of a few favourite old pieces which are classics mixed with some (then) new in bits. The Jaeger coat I have talked about before – my best sale find from about 3 years ago now. It really is such a staple piece. It goes with everything and I like that it…

So as promised here comes the post from our second day in Amsterdam… After another wonderful breakfast in the hotel we set off to visit the Stedelijk museum. The museum is the most meaningful for modern and contemporary art and design in the Netherlands. Luckily audio guides are offered for free which really helps when viewing the artworks. I don’t know about you, but I often find myself looking at an object in museum an trying to fathom what on earth the artist was thinking when he or she constructed it. Modern art especially can be quite strange at times and while of course art is meant for interpretation as much as truly understanding the artists motivation – I do feel that gaining a bit of context helps me better understand the message. For example, the string of lights shown in some of the pictures below are by an artist…

A few weeks ago, my boyfriend and I decided to take a spontaneous three-day trip to Amsterdam. We have a long-distance relationship which works out fine for the most part and we try to see each other every other weekend but sometimes it’s nice to get away to somewhere new and explore together. I have actually been to Amsterdam twice, but the last time I went was at 17 so it’s been a while and D has actually never been. From where he lives in Münster it is only a 2 1/2 hour drive so easily manageable (although I first had to take a four-hour train up to Münster…). We drove to our hotel on a Sunday and got to our hotel quite late so didn’t explore much that day. D found our hotel the “Student Hotel” which is located slightly outside the centre… however, it turned out to be…

Hey stranger – hi, hello how are we all? It’s been a while and so I thought I’d kick things off with a rather picture-heavy update from my life since I last posted. A lot has happened since October 2018 and this blog is just as much for anyone who fancies reading it as it is for me to document and look back on what I’ve been up to. October I started writing my Master thesis in October which is the main reason as to why it’s been quiet over here. When you spend your days writing and researching all day all you want to do in the evening is chill out (or actually go to the gym to get some exercise in) and not continue writing… Also I spent most of my days in sweatpants so not too fashion forward. A lot of days were spent procrastinating, trying new…

Here is a bit of a picture-heavy post to celebrate this wonderful (and very late) summer… These pictures were taken on the way home to my parents after a night-out for a friends 30th… so feeling a bit delicate but this flowy Zara dress was perfect for the occasion (i.e. hangover brunch). Seeing as it’s a pretty simple dress it goes well with some more statement boots, which I got last year but are a big trend for this season. Kind of hoping for colder weather now… time to get out those jumpers and coats! Much love! Thanks to Dominik Emmert for the photos.

Last week was my 24th Birthday. It’s crazy how another year flew by and how dates like this kind of creep up on you even when you’ve been expecting them (do you know what I mean?). So, it’s time for some reflection… My 23rd year in life has been a good one. I finished my bachelor’s degree with a grade far better than I had expected and immediately went on to study a master’s degree in Creative Communication and Brand Management which I then changed, one term in, to Creative Direction. While it might be difficult to understand the difference between the two courses, the degree I am studying now is far more creative and has led to a personal development over the past few months which I am equally surprised by and also very happy about. Suffice to say: it was a great decision. This year, or more…

I thought I’d kick things off with a few updates of what I have been up to this summer. I have been really lucky to travel quite a bit the past few months. The first trip being to Denmark. My boyfriends’ parents bought an RV this year and we were allowed to borrow it for a week. We decided to drive up to Denmark as it is not far from Hamburg – where his parents live. It was the most relaxing trip so here are a few photos if you would like to see… Beautiful scenery in Hoyer, Denmark. Pretty cool beach which you could drive onto on the island of Röm. Exploring the picturesque village of Ribe. Low tide – Wattenmeer at Esbjerg. Sandy beaches, ice cream and watching surfers in Hvide Sande. Last evening – no makeup, a lot of freckles and sad to go home. Hope you…

… at least that’s the plan. I guess studying doesn’t actually leave you with lots of time in between to write blogpost. But then again that is not entirely true. When I started this project, I was full of ideas and motivation to finally have something that was mine and that I could create in whatever way I wanted. I felt like I had something to say… even if I maybe hadn’t figured out how to say it yet. And while my love for fashion and food and interiors and travel has not waivered, my love for the internet and blogging and Instagram kind of has. And I don’t mean other peoples’ blogs or Instagram feeds – those I very much appreciate – but my own. I felt like what I was doing was kind of superfluous, like it didn’t matter and maybe wasn’t interesting. And I know that numbers…

First evening in Milan So here is the first post from our trip to Milan. My uni took a one week (five day) trip to Milan for design week. Each year the city hosts the “Salone de Mobile”, a furniture tradeshow which has become the international reference point for the furnishing sector and based on that a lot of brands and designers put on installations throughout the city. There is a handy guide to these installations and this year there were over 300 (!). We all kind of found our own ways to Milan, eight of us decided to take the train. It takes around seven hours from Pforzheim but it’s a very scenic route, taking you through Switzerland with it’s beautiful lakes and mountains. Also when you’re travelling in a group chatting and playing games times flies by. Once we got there my friend Lily and I made our…
