Brunch in New York: Fiore

Fiore is a cozy Italian restaurant, serving brunch, lunch and dinner daily. We went on a Saturday to have brunch and it was awesome! We recommend the strawberry pancakes with lemon zest ricotta and the frittatas („egg cakes“ served with spinach and mozzarella). You can also go boozy and get some cocktails! Make sure to bring money along because they only except cash.

The Office Style Guide

Office Style is a often discussed and handled widely different topic. That is why we want to share our thoughts on this matter with you. Right now, I am working on a new project in a Berlin based agency. What I can say for this business area is that a strict dress code is completely outdated. Basically, everyone wears what they feel comfortable in. Nevertheless, I personally don’t like work outfits that are too casual. That is why this is my golden rule: At any point, you should be ready to face a potential client in your work outfit and feel good about it. In my opinion, your clothes can not only influence your appearance but also the impact you have on others. It is simply a way of being polite to wear appropriate clothing to business meetings and work in general. Besides, your clothes can underline your strongpoints, help you to face tense situations and overall influence the way you are viewed by your business partners and colleagues. If you have a lack of …

Will you be my Valentine?

Some love, some hate Valentine’s Day. All that we can say is: Why shouldn’t we enjoy it while it’s there anyways! This year my boyfriend took me to Amsterdam for Valentine’s weekend and I loved the Dutch people’s positive attitude towards Valentine’s Day! Every restaurant and bar had some funny and cheesy decoration, but it was all just fun and all people enjoyed the atmosphere instead of complaining how silly this tradition is.   [show_shopthepost_widget id=“1424031″]

Five Things About Dancing in New York

When Jana stayed in New York for an internship I took the chance the join her for six weeks and follow my passion: dancing. It was an amazing time and I have learned so much from taking this step. In a short list I have collected the five things you should always keep in mind when thinking about doing the same thing. 1. Everyone wants to make it in New York. Thus it is very tough working in this city as a dancer. There are so many talented people around who are working their ass off to make it here (this actually fits into every job area in NYC). 2. Dance classes are expensive in New York. An average class (any dance style) costs between 18 und 20 bucks. Not something you can afford on an everyday basis for such a long time. 3. Be prepared that in every class someone is better than you. For me it always was a motivation to become better, train harder and watch them how they work. But I …
