Blue skies smiling at me

Snapping these pictures wasn’t easy actually. It was raining the whole day and we tried to catch a weather gap. The weather God wasn’t on our side which is why we headed to the beautiful New Palace and used those beautiful arcades as our backdrop.

Even though the weather wasn’t summerly at all, I couldn’t resists on wearing this beautiful light blue skirt from Zara. I already bought it some weeks ago and was desperately waiting to wear it. I really love the shape of the skirt which is why I also got it in black the other day.

Moët Moment – Vol.II

n no more than 11 days, the next International Moët Party Day will take place in Berlin – and we are more than excited! Last year, the event could be described as „the perfect summer day“. We were drinking refreshing champagne cocktails, listened to a private Adesse performance and danced into the sunset…

This year we already know, that we’ll go on a glamorous cruise and the party will take place in a villa nearby the Wannsee. But enough about us, here’s the best thing: you can also be part of the Moët Party Day 2017! Apply for your ticket here.

Here’s also a short throwback to the Moët Party Day 2016…

Personal Issue: Why do we always judge each other?

Lately, I couldn’t help but think a lot about „judging“ and how it affects our lives in general. I understand, that judging means to formulate an opinion about a person, often without knowing them better or being present at the circumstances. For some reason, judging others is a sport among women, especially when Instagram is involved. Profiles are checked out, opinions are formed – a picture that is a little bit too revealing or make-up that is applied is a little bit too much, will be topic of talk in minutes!

But why are we so pre-occupied with others? And why do we think, that our interpretation is always right? Honestly, I think judging others should not even be a thing. We should all keep in mind, that people are flawed (we all are) and everyone has the right to live and present themselves on Social Media in the way they want.

However, when people are presenting themselves on Social Media this way, shouldn’t we also be allowed to form opinions and talk about it? Of course. But what we shouldn’t forget in the process, is that those people are human beings, that the circumstances may be different than we imagine and that lastly, we should focus more on our own lives than judging others.

We should rather focus on working on our image, how we come across to people and also, how we want to be perceived by others. And maybe, from time to time, we should keep in mind that Social Media does not reveal the whole story and people may be more fragile than they let show.

June Inspiration

In Berlin, the last May days have been the hottest in history – we had nearly constant 30 degrees Celsius and on Tuesday even 34! Surely, we hope that this warm weather will remain throughout June as well.

Apart from being sunny and warm, June is a colorful month for me. There is always a play of light and colors: the flowers blooming in the garden, a bright pink summer dress, a statement bag in yellow, an orange Aperol Spritz, a bright green salad…

Let’s celebrate the colors of June this month!

Summer Trend Watch I

We’ve first seen them on the runways of Prada and co. (and to be honest, couldn’t make much of this trend in the beginning). Now, they’re everywhere! In our opinions, they are the perfect combination of chic and casual, a pair of shoes fitting to many outfits and occasions.

Mom Jeans
Thank go for mom jeans! We couldn’t love them more. They’re super stylish, super cozy and a perfect fit (they always make a slim waist, because of the high waist cut). Mom jeans really make our daily lives more comfortable…

Cross-Body Bags
There’s nothing more stylish and „blogger-like“ than a cross-body bag, over a fur coat, dress, blouse, blazer… The list is endless. However, what always remains is that cross-body bags are not only practical (you have your hands free for phones, coffees, drinks…) but also an upgrade to every style. They just always look classy but effortless.

Burgundy and Nude

The bomber jacket trend is still growing strong and we can’t deny that we also love these light jackets. While they only came in black or an oliv green at the beginning, you will now be able to find them in any colour and decorated with any pattern.

This dark red one is the perfect day to night version. Combined with light colours during the day and a black dress during night you can easily mix and match it.

Top – H&M
Jacket – H&M
Pants – Zara
Sandals – Mango
Clutch – Furla

Shopping in Berlin: Bellwinkel

In the heart of Güntzelkiez in Wilmersdorf, we found this small and cozy shop called „Bellwinkel“. The store offers a wide variety of small things, that make your life more beautiful – interesting cookbooks, colorful spoons, cooking equipment, candles, teas, chocolates, spices, nice dishes… The particular: all goods are neatly arranged by colors.

During lunchtime, Bellwinkel provides a new lunch menu every day. Apart from that, they also do catering. Altogether, Bellwinkel is the right address for gifts, if you need a certain oriental spice for a new recipe or if you’re just in the mood for strolling…

Personal Issue: About the long-distance-relationship-trend

A few weeks ago I stumbled across this article about relationships. In this they wrote that more than half of all Germans have lived in a long-distance relationship during the last year. Surprising? Not really. Many of my friends have been in this position and I can also give a deep insight on this topic. But is this really a new trend? An old, and yet still unfamiliar, form of relationship?

My long-distance relationship lasted 3 years. Before we entered this statues we have been together for not quite a year.
When you finish school, life stretches ahead of you and there are so many possibilities. And I actually love to encourage anyone to follow his or her dreams and give it a shot, no matter how far it is away. I’m a strong believer that, if the feelings are strong enough, it will be okay to go through such a period of time. Therefore I would never ask someone to not leave if they truly want it and on the other side I would never like my partner to keep me back. My inside may scream „Stay! Please stay!“ but I would actually keep that back, just because I don’t want anyone to give up on something for me.

At the beginning I actually thought this would be the perfect form of relationship for me. During the week I was so busy with training and university, that a boyfriend wouldn’t be easy to squeeze in. You seem much more freer because you don’t have to find free spots in your full Monday to Friday schedule. And when the weekend comes you have plenty of time together…

Wrong. It took me quite some time to realize how hard this form of relationship actually is. Planing and organizing are typical parts of living a long-distance relationship. Which weekend will we see each other again? Where are we going to meet? What are we going to do? Oh it’s the birthday of a close friend, I have to stay in town.

What we don’t realize at first: both are setting up a new life in the place they live or keep their life they have been living so far. Two worlds, two different lives have to be shared in some short but intense moments. Normally only on weekends. And basically never alone really. You simply can’t just give up the environment you live in and you all probably know that our weekends are simply not two blank days in the calendar. They are packed with appointments and as soon as you start working regularly, weekends will be your only free days. Are our schedules not made for long-distance relationships anymore? Or let’s ask it this way: are we even made for long-distance relationships?

I really can’t answer these questions even though I have been living this form of relationship. I think everyone has to find the right way of building and keeping a relationship. Everyone is different and people have easily stayed together over a certain amount of time living apart from each other. Nevertheless we have to decide for ourselves if this is keeping us up or pulling us down. And I still think it’s possible to have a good long-distance relationship and everyone who is in this position: you have my highest amount of respect for fighting for it. But I don’t want to go back to this position. And I can tell you why.

First: I have experienced that I love being spontaneous, I love to hang out with my friends, meet for dinner in town or go swimming by the lake. My daily life is so structured by training, rehearsals and university that I love to keep some things spontaneous. And I know that eventually someday this will end because of work and family. A boy- or girlfriend in the same town makes this just so much easier. You can quickly meet and spontaneously do something together.

Secondly being apart for sometime, just two weeks maybe, separate you emotionally more than the distance measured in kilometers. When you meet again you feel this has to be perfect, you are under pressure because you only have the few hours and those have to be phenomenal. This is never going to work. As soon as you are triggering your emotions and feelings, you are losing it. I always figured this was just my impression but after talking to many who have been running or still are in a long-distance relationship they confirm my thoughts.

And then there are moments in life you just need someone to be by your side. Someone who takes your hand, puts his or her arm around you and makes you feel good even though the situation isn’t good. Simply by being there and not having to drive hundreds of kilometers to do this. There are people who don’t have a problem with this and thats good, too. Because of course we can’t all find true love in the same spot we live in. In the end we have to be happy with the relationship we are in and as long as both fight for it, there is a chance on making it.

Furla Acero

Newest addition to my wardrobe… After wanting a chic, simple and elegant clutch that can go with every outfit, I finally decided to get a Furla Metropolis bag. It’s beige, to be more specific the color is „acero“ with some light golden details. The inside is crafted with soft, beige suede and some rivets are supporting the bag from underneath. Dear Furla Metropolis, I love your simple and chic design, that you go with every outfit and I am already looking forward to spending the summer with you!

Ballet Nails with NeoNail

For us, neat and nice nails should just be a standard in every woman’s beauty routine. However, we all know, that’s easier said than done!

Especially as a dancer, nails have to endure a lot: some choreographies include dancing on the ground, rolling over, steadying oneself on one arm… Additionally, in Ballet, it’s normally not allowed to wear apparent nail colors like red or dark colors, because as a dancer you are playing a role and the wrong nail polish can destroy a whole character.

When you’re a guest at a ballet performance in the theatre on the other hand, you certainly dress up and to every night out dress belongs the right nail polish.

Today, in friendly cooperation with NeoNail, we would like to show you two ways of styling your hands in a perfect dancer’s style: First, as a ballet dancer in a soft rose nude, and secondly, as a spectator at the theatre, wearing a glamorous outfit!

Here’s our Step By Step Guide to beautiful dancer’s nails: 

Our nail look for a night at the theatre

And for some real ballerina nails…

Lastly, we want to let you know how to remove the NeoNail manicure! Here are the three easy steps:

Step 1: Roughen the surface of your nail with the file until the nail polish is all matted.

Step 2: Take the nail wraps, saturate with acetone or UV nail polish remover and wrap around your fingertips. Let it sit for 7 to 10 minutes.

Step 3: Remove nail polish with small rosewood stick – some last bits can be removed with the buffer.

ltogether, our experience with NeoNail was honestly great – the system is super easy, the nail polishes are easy to apply and the colors are beautiful. For the beginning, we can only recommend the starter set with LED lamp – everything you need is in there and you can later add more colors…
