Personal Issue: Why Dogs are really better than Humans

I‘ve always been a dog lover, my whole childhood I wanted to have a furry friend and they day my parents got a golden retriever was probably one of the happiest in my life. But why are people so fond of dogs anyway? Now, that I’m living in the centre of Berlin, I can understand that some people don’t like dogs. When they’re ill-bred and do what they want, people are scared or annoyed rather than pleased by them. Nevertheless, there is so much that humans don’t see and with that, so many issues that we create with wrong body language or handling of dogs. Through my mom, who is an even bigger dog lover than I am and has educated herself a lot when it comes to dog education, I learned that dogs don’t like it when you lean over them, that you should always keep 5 core orders that a dog knows and that they calm dog when you touch their chests. There are million more interesting tricks and hacks, also specific for …

L.O.V. Cosmetics

At the Edition F Female Future event we first came across the new cosmetics line L.O.V. – we got a lovely goody bag with some really nice nail polish colors and make-up products. After testing the products we can only say, that we’re fans already! We didn’t know about this new cosmetic line before since, like most of us, already have our make-up products we love and keep. But sometimes it’s nice to get to know a new one. The design of the products is really clear and minimalistic but visually they are a sensation. Blending in to every bathroom collection or dressing table decoration.

Stripes for fall

These pictures can’t hide it anymore: Autumn is here. But it can be such a beautiful season with all those colored leaves, long walks through the park, cuddly scarfs and a cinnamon spiced coffee. What do you like to do during some sunny Autumn days? We also took the chance to snap some outfit pictures. Next week university life starts for me again and I’m actually not that motivated to go back to the classes. Somehow I love to work for new projects and enjoy some free time on the weekend, not thinking about reading texts and writing essays. But I’m looking forward to see all my study mates again and chat to them. It’s always fun to hear and see what they have been up to during our “free” time. Summer so over so fast and it seem surreal to be back to kind-off normal daily business soon. Coat – Zara Off-shoulder shirt – H&M Skirt – Zara Sneakers – Adidas Stan Smith

Personal Issue: About feeling helpless

From time to time we all feel a little vulnerable and helpless. Some of us more often than others but mostly we can recover and build new strength. But we all probably know what its like to feel helpless. And I not only mean feeling helpless for ourselves but especially for others. So, I came to ask the question: why do we sometimes feel so helpless? What are these situations and is it possible to overcome them? I never thought that I would be picking up this kind off topic in a blog post but lately I figured it would be a good platform to talk about it. In my environment I have discovered a high rate of people facing eating disorders. I think this stems from the fact that I constantly work with girls from the age 13 to 18 and I have watched some of them grow up. From being a kid to becoming a teenager, struggling with various life issues. We have all been through this age or a currently still facing …

Female Future Force

Last week Thursday we had the chance to attend the Female Future Force event hosted by the magazine Edition F. The theme of the event was “Life-Changing-Moments” and five women were invited as speakers throughout the evening. The location of the event was the STATION at Luckenwalder Str., in the heart of Berlin. We got there a little after half past 8 and a big queue had already formed in front of the main entrance.  The the big space inside was needed: around 800 people, mainly women, attended the event on this evening. The first hour before the speakers took the stage was a little hectic and crazy. Rosen Garden Berlin was responsible for the catering on this evening and did a great job with their team. We enjoyed some delicious creams with fresh bread, Mexican wraps, shrimps and dumplings as well as fresh fruits and banana bread. The drinks were supplied by Russian Standard, Weingut Diehl and Vöslauer. We especially fell in love with the rosé wine by Weingut Diehl but also Russian Standard …

October Inspiration

Autumn is one of the seasons we really love. The light (when the weather allows it) is so magical when the sun goes down, the leaves are beautifully colored and cuddling up on the sofa becomes casual. Oh and don’t forget the hot chocolate here. Plus, Halloween is coming our way. Excitement level? High! And we guess no other month than October represents autumn so accurate. We therefore have put together a little inspiration post for you, featuring our favorite pieces and states for this month. The weather is changing daily, the spices of our food gets a make-over (craving for that pumpkin-ginger soup) and our wardrobe becomes more comfortable.
