Shopping in Berlin: Schee

I love to discover new little boutiques and shops in my neighborhood. One store that I recently stumbled across is Schee, located in Bleibtreustraße. So we went to check it out last weekend. The store is a lovely mix of interior and decoration accessories, cards and books, prints and textiles. In my opinion one of the addresses to go for when you’re searching for a present for a friend or family member! We really liked how elaborate and carefully selected the selection of items was – every piece was special! They also have another store in Berlin located at Rosenthaler Straße (close to the underground station Rosenthaler Platz, Mitte). We definitely want to visit that one too.

Personal Issue: About dating and body-shaming

You probably ask yourself how these two topics, dating and body-shaming, can become the content of one combined post. But sadly I had to experience they can. A few weeks ago I was sitting backstage with some dear, female colleagues and we were chatting like we always do when we get back together after some time. It’s always fun and every girls topic you can imagine comes to discussion here. Last time we once again came to the topic of dating and what we all have experienced lately. One of my colleagues told us about her last Tinder date and this is the base of this post. She met this guy at a café and they chatted about a few topics. It still was a cold day in Berlin and she had her scarf laying on her lap. Not as a blanket, just as a bundle of fabric. After some time she went to the toilet and as she returned, she once again placed the scarf on her lap. The guy noticed it and, hold …

Spring Trend Watch II

Embroided Jeans They’re everywhere – whether Zara, Mango, H&M or the high-class gucci version: Embroided jeans are the new cool. I remember when I was a child and my mom patched up my jeans (which were dirty and had holes in them from playing outside) with some colorful flowers, mickey mouses… Now, jeans are more colorful than ever and that’s definitely a trend we’re in love with! Off-Shoulder Off-Shoulder tops, dresses and blouses just give a certain lightness to every outfit – therefore they have become absolute it-pieces for the summer. I like that they embrace shoulders and neckline for a change instead of cleavage – and that makes them not less sexy! Chokers Chokers always had something sexual and wicked about them but now they’re celebrating a comeback. Day and night – they can be combined with everyday outfits and simple t-shirts as well as sexy evening dresses.

Happy Easter!

The long Easter weekend is here and we are indulging in some free time and good chocolate eggs. How will you spend Easter Sunday? We will have a lovely lunch containing grilled salmon and green asparagus. And in the afternoon we will hit a theater production and in the evening meet our friends for a good dancing session at the local club. It maybe not the traditional Easter Sunday with the whole family and a good brunch or dinner but it dose not matter how you celebrate those festive days as long as you are happy with the events/gatherings you pick. During the last couple of days we were often asked why don’t we celebrate Easter with our family but it’s simply a huge logistical effort since they are all over Germany. Therefore its really nice to just gather people around you who you love and who give you a good feeling, no matter if its Easter, Christmas or any other day, We hope you all have some lovely plans and wish you H A …

Embroidered Jeans

The long Easter weekend lays ahead of us and we do hope for some better weather than the forecast gives us. We haven’t planed much and will rather try to regain some strength and relax with our families. Next week university starts again and I’m not so motivated but hope the excitement will kick in as soon as I meet my fellow students. After such a long university-free-time it can be a real pain to go back and study. The past weeks haven’t been easy and I was researching and writing two essays. I didn’t go on holiday and the next weeks will be filled with new lectures and rehearsals for our up-coming ballet.

Coffee in Berlin: earlybean

Last week we tried this coffee spot called earlybean, located in Berlin Charlottenburg at the Meyerinckplatz. It’s a small café severing freshly brewed coffee and small dishes such as salmon bagels and yoghurt with granola. The atmosphere is cozy and you can easily sit here for one or two hours. Besides the hot beverages, you can also indulge in one of their freshly made smoothies. We haven’t tried those yet because it was just too cold that morning but are happy to come back and give them a shot. Price $$$$$ // Service ☆☆☆☆☆ // Location ☆☆☆☆☆ // Taste ☆☆☆☆☆ free Wifi available earlybean Clausewitzstraße 9 10629 Berlin What To Wear to this location

Personal Issue: About dream roles, hard work and sacrifice

I think I was around fifteen/sixteen years old when I first realized how madly in love I am with dancing. Some people think this has always been the case when they meet me today. But to be honest: dancing before that was not my favorite kind-off sport (today I wouldn’t even call it sport anymore, I like to consider it a form of art). At the age of three my Mum took me to ballet class. Well, a dance class where you spin around a little, jump and just have fun. Because of my Dads work we moved places quite often and in every new city I would face a new dance studio, new people, new boundaries. Besides dancing I have always been very active and tried many different sports such as swimming, football, horse riding, badminton, athletics etc. and I was good in all of those fields. I just basically knew what type of sport fits me and my needs. I was horrible at volleyball in school and therefore I would never have taken …

Metallic Stripes

That’s what my basic everyday outfits look like – my favorite jeans (which is mostly the same brand to be honest – they just fit like a glove!), a black shirt, my new leather jacket, that I already love, and the most comfy sneakers! We’re aware that Adidas superstars and stan smiths are everywhere right now but as soon as I wore them, I knew why! They fit casually to every outfit and are super comfortable.

Tel Aviv Travel Diary

Israel has so far been one of the most interesting travels of my life – we went first to Jerusalem for 2 days and afterwards to Tel Aviv for 3. I can surely say, that I’ve learned a lot about religion and culture within these 5 days. Whereas the old city Jerusalem is a place of religion and also a kind of strictness that comes with it, Tel Aviv is the complete opposite. The city is vivid, pulsing, multicultural, laid-back and manifold. To me, it was most impressive to experience the food culture in Tel Aviv – you’ll get to a house that seems as if it could collapse every second but on the ground floor there is the most amazing restaurant, with industrial style light bulbs, a sleek interior design and delicious food and wines! That, is basically the normal thing to happen. I was completely surprised by the quality of Israeli food and the attitude to life of its inhabitants. Another important aspect is the proximity to water – it is a bliss …

April Inspiration

Hello, April! Hello Spring and the light mood that comes with the first sunny days! Fortunately, we’ve been lucky when it comes to the weather in Berlin so far – the last days have been warm and full of sun! That’s probably why I suddenly have such an urge to shop light dresses, pastel colors, rose colored sandals and light-washed jeans with flower embroideries… What are your most loved spring trends this year?
