Rose Garden Berlin

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 …

Coffee in Berlin: Bacis Coffee

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.

Zurich Photo Diary

  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 …

Culture in Berlin: Canova und der Tanz

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.

Brunch in Zurich: Babu’s Bakery

In my opinion, Babu’s Bakery is one of the coziest breakfast spots in whole Zurich. The interior is traditional and romantic, and the food is delicious. You can either order pancakes, waffles, bagels or egg dishes but there are also some fitness alternatives like Bircher Muesli, Acai Bowls and Greek yoghurt. You should also try their excellent coffee! Price $$$$$ // Service ☆☆☆☆☆ // Location ☆☆☆☆☆ // Taste ☆☆☆☆☆ Babu’s Bakery Löwenstrasse 1 8001 Zurich What To Wear to this location

Breakfast in Zurich: Juicery 21

A hip and healthy breakfast option is Zurich is Juicery 21. The café is really small, but still cozy, and serves either warm oatmeal bowls or cold acai bowls combined with a variety of juices. In my opinion the oatmeal was a bit too milky and more like milk rice than oatmeal, but it was nevertheless well made and tasted nice!

November Inspiration

With November, it’s official: the year is coming to an end. It’s getting dark early outside, the weather changes daily and huge knit sweaters have taken over the stores. This month we want to wear wide, light-blue jeans, cozy sweaters in beige or dark blue, put some nude lipstick on, leave our hair naturally open and study some philosophical books. It’s all about casual confidence and a laid-back attitude. Stress comes with December or, if you are good in your timing, November will already be filled with shopping presents and writing Christmas cards. Who knows.. The lust list for this month
