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 …
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.

And here it is! Our third and last Halloween Special post. You may have noticed that it’s just me in all the this years Halloween pictures. Sadly, Jana got sick a few days before the photoshoot and wasn’t able to take part. Health always comes first and therefore we figured it was the right decision to keep her out of it and cuddled-up in bed. This set of pictures was my favorite one since I loved the setting, my dress and the theater blood. Actually the first time I tried this red liquid. What’s more to say? Happy Halloween!!! Dress – Red Valentino Theater blood – DM Pictures by Johannes F. Räbel from JFRcreatives Location: Wintergarten Varieté Berlin (high massiv thank you once again!)
Here comes our second Halloween blogspot. It was my first time visiting the Wintergarten Varieté Berlin and I was absolutely mesmerized by this beautiful, historic location. You were instantly in love with the ambient. Leotard – Gaynor Minden Skirt – H&M Trend Shoes – Zara Hat – Vintage Pictures by Johannes F. Räbel from JFRcreatives.
Let us kick-off our Halloween special with more decent pictures since the others are.. let’s see.. a little more bloody. Setting for our this years special was the Wintergarten Varieté in Berlin (a huge big thank you for giving us this opportunity). The photographer was Johannes from JFRcreatives who once again did an amazing job (massiv thank you – always fun working with you). Over the next couple of days, leading to Halloween on the 31st of October, we will share posts dedicated to this spooky time of year just because we love it so much and hope to inspire you a little with our ideas.

It was my first visit to Palma and I have instantly fallen in love with this city. It offers everything you need for a short get-away. You can dine by the harbor, relaxe at the beach, have some drinks at local bars and shop some delicate summer jewelry.
Hello August, hello ultimate summer month! We certainly can’t complain over the weather during the last few weeks. We had a lot of warm, sunny days already but wouldn’t mind it to stay that way. This months inspiration is inspired by grey and light blue shades, fresh salad recipes, light denim pieces and beige colored bags.
Since nine years I have been a part of the Dance Academy Marita Erxleben. Each year we create a ballet inspired by a fairy tale. Over the years this has become a true tradition for me and since 2013 I started to snap some backstage pictures during rehearsals and performances. I love pictures taken from the audience area but my favorites are those that take you behind the main stage. This is the actual location where all the magic happens in my opinion. You can feel the tension, the excitement and the passion everyone shares. Here you see moments of joy, anxiety and anticipation. If you ever get the chance to work at a theater, take it. Here you are able to experience new roles and just escape the daily life.
When looking at these images I certainly remember why I practice this form of art. The grace, the beauty, the strength and the effortlessness is just divine. And perfectly captured by the team behind the NYC Dance Project, Ken Browar and Deborah Ory. Capturing the right moment in dance through photography isn’t easy and it takes time to develop the right eye. But these two are just amazing and are true leaders in this form of craft. Make sure to pre-order their book, filled with delicately chosen pictures.
We try to at least once a weak meet for coffee, blog talk and snapping some pictures. Because we both work full time and study as well, sometimes it is hard to find time. But somehow, we always manage! We love that Berlin has so many quiet and nice streets, that are also green with flowers. It just very much feels like home.
