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 to walk down the beach of Tel Aviv to the old city of Jaffa and feel the ocean breeze. Jaffa is also a complete contrast to the modern Tel Aviv – the old city is basically a huge flea market, where you can stroll around the whole day and discover furniture, lamps, clothing, decoration and much more!

When in Tel Aviv, you should not miss the Bauhaus architecture that you can experience everywhere in the city. Generally, the whole cityscape is completely diverse, what makes it so interesting.

Altogether, I can only highly recommend traveling to these beautiful places – I can assure you, that you’ll see, discover and learn a lot!

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?

Breakfast in Potsdam: Zweitwohnsitz

A few friends of mine already recommended this place to me and I was really happy to finally try it last Friday. Zweitwohnsitz (meaning like second home) is a small café located in Potsdam West. The interior is really charming and you feel home instantly.

We headed there for breakfast but they also serve various lunch options, filled Pita breads and delicious looking cake (need to come back and try a slice). On a paper you can find various breakfast pieces and a free space to fill in a number of the amount you want. It offers you the chance to put together your own breakfast they way you want it to be.

I absolutely loved the coffee because it was a good ground coffee, rich in smell and flavor. Besides normal milk they also offer soy, lactose-free and oat milk (my new favorite milk for coffee).

I certainly need to come back since many people recommended me to go there on a Saturday for their brunch buffet. You see, still so many options to try at this place.

Pink stripes

We loved to be styled by the talented people of Shan’s True Beauty situated at Kurfürstendamm. For some reason, Shan’s Beauty always manages to give my hair a lot of volume that is staying for days!

Since it was still a little chilly in Berlin, I decided to wear my fur vest on top of the shirt, combined with my favorite boot cut jeans – some think it’s too 60’s but I totally love the style!

Last Friday the team of Headspace PR and COTY invited us once more to an exceptional blogger get-together in Frankfurt am Main. Everything was just perfect! The location, the setting, the food and the people. It was an absolutely phenomenal afternoon.

Center of attention were the fragrances by Esprit, Mexx, Bruno Banani and James Bond. For each one of them the team created special workshops. We made flower bouquets, tried to form blossom shaped ice cream, learned about dos and don’ts when visiting metropolises and created our own gif. And of course they spoiled us with delicious hearty food and lovely sweet treats.

A big thank you to the lovely team and all those busy bees who helped to make this afternoon a memorable one. We are looking forward to more fun workshops and events.

Personal Issue: About growing beyond oneself

Frankly, the last couple of months have been rough. To say it mildly, I’ve had a lot on my plate! Some would argue, that it was my own fault, I simply say: you grow with your tasks.

In Winter 2015, I’ve taken on a job as a conceptualist / marketing manager / interior designer for a Berlin start-up called Rose Garden. You might have seen it in a post the other day. I’ve loved this job from day one and given my heart and soul for this brand. My tasks included to work on concepts, do trend research as well as develop a Social Media strategy and form the brand’s CI – to make a long story short – a dream job for a young creative business student like me.

I worked full-time during the semester break and wasn’t ready to give up my job when the semester started again, so the only consequence was to do both. And that’s what I did. I signed up for my bachelor’s thesis, which I wrote about brand development with means of Social Media marketing and continued to work hard for Rose Garden.

Sometimes, I lay in bed at night and thought: Jana, what the hell are you doing? No sane person would work full-time and write a bachelor’s thesis at the same time… You can’t do it, it’s just too much. But then I stopped myself and reminded me, that I wanted this so badly and lived for both projects. That’s how I learned to motivate myself with both projects at the same time: During weekends I worked for the bachelor’s thesis and on Mondays I was usually super glad to get back to work, because it was a welcome change! Apart from that, after a certain point during my thesis I started to really learn a lot from it and also to incorporate some of the research ideas into my work at Rose Garden. I so to say fueled both projects mutually.

In the beginning of February, I knew I was going to make it – my due date for the thesis was the end of the month and I was nearly finished. With that feeling, a huge relief passed through my whole body and mind – I did it, and I can proudly say that I never sacrificed the quality of my work for the thesis and the other way around.

What I take from this experience is, first, that I’m super excited for the next months in which I will „only“ be working and start to have some free weekends, quality time with my friends and of course (!) for Midnight Couture again! Secondly, that we all can achieve as much as we desire to, as long as we are willing to work hard and use time efficiently. Sometimes, it’s not wrong to take on multiple projects, as long as you can take energy from them both ways.

Beauty in Berlin: Shan’s Beauty

A couple of days ago, we spent a more than lovely morning at Shan’s True Beauty Lounge, situated directly at Kurfürstendamm. We really loved that, finally, there’s a similar concept in Berlin as the New York one, which are „blow dry“ bars, where you can go and let your hair be washed and styled so that you can start the day right!

Apart from the brilliant hairstyling we also got some beautiful manicures. There is a variety of nail polishes to choose from – all lovely colors. Altogether, we can only recommend to check out Shan’s Beauty Lounge if you have a minute, you can just walk in without an appointment! The prices are also moderate – you’ll get a manicure with nail polish for 20€ and a blow dry for 35€.

Homemade Bircher Müsli

It has become somewhat of a routine for me – lately, I always prepare my breakfast in advance in order to safe time in the morning. For that reason, I love to prepare bircher muesli, because it is easy, delicious and healthy at the same time! I always prepare a big bowl that lasts a whole week in the fridge and top it with fresh berries to get some extra freshness.

To be honest, I normally mix the bircher muesli by feel and put in what I like at the time. Here’s a rough recipe:

two parts spelt oats (I always take the fine ones, so it gets really creamy!)
dried apricots
shredded coconut
one fresh apple (cut in tiny pieces)
a dash of cinnamon
soy milk

I mix all the dry ingredients and stir them until mixed through. Then I fill it up with soy milk so that everything is covered. Leave in the fridge over night and enjoy every day!

Flower Choker

I have been indecisive about the choker trend for quite a while – until I found this perfect, spring-blouse with a bright flower pattern and choker design. It instantly lifts my mood and makes me happy!

I love to either wear it with some skinny jeans or as well with my favorite boot cut ones. A trench coat is always a safe bet to accompany the outfit.
