It’s the season to be jolly and bright. Nevertheless I have been thinking about these festive days and what makes them so special to me. Because way to often we forget how special these days are and why we actually like to celebrate them. Christmas is a Christian feast on which they celebrate the birth of Jesus on the 25th of December. On the evening of the 24th the people start to celebrate with dinners, worship services and exchanging gifts. It’s a tradition which has become far more commercial and is not only celebrated by Christians anymore. I for myself have no religion. My parents have been baptized as Christian and evangelist but decided to let us decide for ourselves if we want to enter a church or follow a certain confession. I never felt really secure with either of them which is why I decided not to be baptized. But this is another topic I don’t want to illustrate now. My dad worked for the German military and we had to move cities quite …
Working with the squad from COTY is just always a joy. The last two years we have been a part of this amazing team (find a list with at the end of this post with the past events) and just loved all their events, surprises and cooperation offers. So, before telling you a little more about yesterdays event, I would like to take the chance and say thank you! The last two years the Christmas events have been held in Hamburg, which always brought me back to this lovely town. A town I somehow call home too since my Mum was born here. However this time they chose Berlin as their city, which also made me really happy and excited. Yesterday a bunch of bloggers and influencers headed to Delight Rental Studios in Berlin in order to spend a fun day together. The theme of this years event was “GOLD” and the main part was a photoshoot with tow different styles, in two different settings. My first look for the Bruno Banani section was the …
Headspace PR and COTY simply know how to get you in the Christmas mood. Last week Friday I took the chance to head to Hamburg in order to attend their traditionell Christmas Blogger workshop. The venue was beautifully decorated with Christmas trees, the smell of Apple crumble was in the air and everyone seemed merry&bright. Through the afternoon we worked on some perfume themed DIY Christmas gifts, had some coffee and enjoyed the company of fellow bloggers. The perfumes mainly focused on were Mexx, Playboy, Bruno Banani, James Bond 007 and David Beckham. A big thank you to COTY and the Headspace PR team for inviting us once again. We always love joining you on such special events.
This certainly is becoming a Christmas tradition. Each year I collect pictures for the Dance Academy Christmas Calendar and in the end I love to share my favorite ones with you. If you want to see the whole calendar head over to the official Facebook page.
Last week we travelled to Hamburg for a day to participate in the annual blogger Xmas workshop designed around the P&G prestige perfumes. We enjoyed some DIY workshops that included designing our own christmas tree balls, gift boxes and cupcakes – all inspired by different perfume lines, namely James Bond 007, Christina Aguilera and Bruno Banani. It was a super fun day and really got us into the right mood for Christmas. Thanks for having us Headspace PR! Christmas Shopping – ho ho ho

This year the traditional Dance Christmas Calendar is a little different. We decided to share pictures which we snapped over the whole year and combine these with current pictures. Which is why you will find stage snaps and training sessions, indoor work and outdoor fun. Find the whole calendar on Ballettstudio Marita Erxleben.
I really love dressing elegantly when the right occasion comes along but most of the time you will find me in comfy sweaters, black skinny jeans and my heavy Ash boots or ballet clothes, of course. Which is why I have fallen for this sporty yet a little glamours jacket. And you even feel a little Christmas-is-coming-like. Which honestly hasn’t reached me till now! Jacket – Mavi Pants – Mavi
Christmas is coming closer and we want to make sure that you have the right gifts ready for your beloved ones. Boys, let us tell you this: we love cozy cute sweaters and delicate jewelry pieces. Sence Copenhagen (one of our all-time favorites) is really one of those perfect little gifts for Christmas. Not too glittery and over-sized. When it comes to sweater make sure to buy one which offers a good quality. French Connection for example has some absolutely lovely ones in their winter collection as well as Maje and Whistles.
When it comes down to prepare this post we always think “What happened to this year?!”. Somehow it comes really slowly, the end of one year and the beginning of a new one. However it still always feels as if we have created this post just a few days ago. And now we do it again. One year, gone so fast and with it so many memories to keep in mind. What has been most memorable then? Here a little list which is really just captures some things We traveled a lot this year – Amsterdam, London, Praha, Palma de Mallorca, Madeira, Weimar, Istanbul, Paris, Roma and Venice. We hope to be able to add some more beautiful places to our list in the next year. Traveling is such a passion, you ca never get enough of it. We have done an interview with the Tagesspiegel about Midnight Couture. Additionally we also joined the BlogStars and Stylight blogger network. So many opportunities have come along and we are so grateful for it. And you made this actually possible. BIG THANK YOU …
