During the holidays and also during christmas time in general the most important thing is to take some time for your beloved ones. There are so many things, that you may do during these times, going to the christmas market, doing some shopping for presents, passing a cozy night at home with some christmas movies… The important thing is, to take the time, not matter how stressed out you might be. That’s why we spent a girl’s Christmas night with a lot of ginger bread, hot mulled wine, christmas songs and some small presents.
Et cetera is a small café located in the center of Potsdam, linked to the city library. It offers a good range of sweet treats e.g. cakes, cookies and muffins as well as hearty tarts and a fresh soup (changing on a daily basis). I only had the chance to try a small chocolate ring cake but certainly will come back to try the other ones. The coffee was good, could have been a little hotter though. Besides normal milk they also offer soy milk (coasting 40cents extra). The interior is really warm and welcoming. They offer a good range of comfy seats and you can certainly stay for one or two hours.

Headspace PR and COTY simply know how to get you in the Christmas mood. Last week Friday I took the chance to head to Hamburg in order to attend their traditionell Christmas Blogger workshop. The venue was beautifully decorated with Christmas trees, the smell of Apple crumble was in the air and everyone seemed merry&bright. Through the afternoon we worked on some perfume themed DIY Christmas gifts, had some coffee and enjoyed the company of fellow bloggers. The perfumes mainly focused on were Mexx, Playboy, Bruno Banani, James Bond 007 and David Beckham. A big thank you to COTY and the Headspace PR team for inviting us once again. We always love joining you on such special events.
Holiday time after holiday time… For some reason, there are always some wardrobe standards that remain the same every season. Almost every time there is a sequin dress, there will most definitely be something velvet and of course the Christmas color red should never miss! That’s why this year’s gift guide is probably more for us, but why shouldn’t we indulge a little ourselves as well! Happy Holidays!

If you are applying a fragrance you want to feel good and others should notice it otherwise its a waste of time and money. Perfume can have a powerful effect on your confidence and mood so it should work to its maxim. Pulse points, or anywhere you can find a heartbeat are traditionally recommended as spots to apply a fragrance on. The majority of those physical locations are linked with kissing potential and therefore loaded with a certain seduction level. These points include for example the base of the throat, the inside of the wrists and the decollate, making the fragrance narrative both logical and utterly romantic with her code. Christmas is probably the best season of the year to give away a little scented bottle. We can highly recommend the Hugo Boss The Scent fragrance for her (seen in these pictures) and him. Both offer the right amount of seduction and feel-good-mood you are instantly hocked.
Here it is, the last month of the year. This year was crazy! Somehow it rushed by instantly and all those amazing moments were simply too short. But the memories for this year are fabulous and we can’t wait for 2017 to become even greater. But to finish this year appropriately we of course can’t miss out on our monthly inspiration. December is a festive month, filled with glitter and love but also with hectic and craziness. Make sure to take some time for yourself, too. Cuddle up in bed or take a long bath, invest in long camel scarfs, glittery make up and kitten heels. Shopping lust list
The last weeks have been quiet on Midnight Couture – life happened and we couldn’t do much about it! We have both been working on some amazing projects, some of them were more demanding and since blogging can be considered a full-time job nowadays, that’s why there has been a lack of posts! However, I’m quite proud to announce that the project I’ve been working on more than one year now is called Rose Garden – a deli & concept store in Berlin Mitte. I’ve been involved in the whole creative process of this project, being responsible for interior design, conception, marketing, social media and press work. Since a couple of days, our store set-up is finally ready and we are already opening our doors from time to time to let the team warm up. There will soon be more posts about Rose Garden and I will announce our official opening date! Until then, feel free to follow us on Instagram and Facebook to get more updates of my work – @rosegardenberlin – I happy …
When you enter the daily life of a student you quickly notice that coffee is a necessity for most of them. And yes, we actually count to this group. However, the coffee offered at the cafeteria is not that outstanding which is why we are constantly searching for great coffee spots closely located to our institute. Last year I stumbled across Bacis Coffee close to the subway station Dahlem Dorf and was instantly in love with their welcoming atmosphere and the delicious coffee they serve. You can really taste the coffee and are always treated with a small cookie (all café spots out there: a little sweet treat accompanying your coffee makes the costumer really happy – simple and easy!). They also serve some delicious lunch dishes, fresh bagels and some yummy cakes/cookies.

It has long been my dream to visit Switzerland, especially Zurich. Mainly, that was because some of my closest friends from the time when I lived in Paris, live in Zurich and I long wanted to visit them! That’s why for Halloween weekend, we headed to Zurich and discovered the city with them! Zurich is a small and calm, but very romantic and charismatic city. If the weather is nice, you can visit Uetliberg, which is a beautiful mountain on which you can view the whole city from above. You should also just plan a long walk along Zurich lake, preferably on a Sunday since everything else will be closed on that day. Another really common tradition is to have an Apero, which is kind of an Aperitif at home, where you invite friends over for some snacks and wine before heading out to dinner or a bar. Altogether, Zurich is definitely worth a visit and the local culture is a very warm and welcoming one! What To Wear for an autumn day in …
Rainy weekend days are made for visiting the museum and Berlin just offers such a great variety. Since a few weeks the Bode Museum is hosting the exhibition “Canova und der Tanz” (Canova and the dance). This exhibition features works of the Italian neoclassical sculptor Antonio Canova. As a special highlight they offer guided tours (approx. 60 minutes long) with a little performance of a corps de ballet dancer from the Staatsballett Berlin (this could have been a little longer in my opinion). The ballet dancer also wears a recreation of the dress worn by the Canovas famous sculpture “The Dancer” and you somehow visualize the whole scenery on how the sculptor created this piece. These tours are limited and you certainly need to book a ticket in advance however the exhibition is also worth a visit without the tour.
