Its been a while since we shared a post with you but we have been extremely busy lately and figured we only would like to come back posting, when we have more content to share with you. The past weeks I have been running between university lectures and dance training. Last October I started my M.A. study program (dance science) at the Freie Universität Berlin. After finishing my B.A. in art history and history I figured it was time to pick-up a field I dream of working in. Studying art history and history was good and I still consider working in this section but I’m really looking forward to expand my horizon in the dance science area. During the next weeks we will share more personal information with you, show you new places, offer some recipes and shopping details. These pictures were taken at the Hamburger Bahnhof, a museum offering a range of contemporary art. The collection permanently displayed is not my favorite (except the works of Warhol and Lichtenstein) one but the building itself …
Rainy weekend days are made for visiting the museum and Berlin just offers such a great variety. Since a few weeks the Bode Museum is hosting the exhibition “Canova und der Tanz” (Canova and the dance). This exhibition features works of the Italian neoclassical sculptor Antonio Canova. As a special highlight they offer guided tours (approx. 60 minutes long) with a little performance of a corps de ballet dancer from the Staatsballett Berlin (this could have been a little longer in my opinion). The ballet dancer also wears a recreation of the dress worn by the Canovas famous sculpture “The Dancer” and you somehow visualize the whole scenery on how the sculptor created this piece. These tours are limited and you certainly need to book a ticket in advance however the exhibition is also worth a visit without the tour.

Those of you who are following us on Instagram and Facebook have probably seen that I’m currently back in New York. But not for Fashion Week as many may think but to follow my passion: dancing. It has become a tradition to visit this city every year to train, be inspired and get new ideas. Again it has been a true pleasure for me and it will be so hard to leave on Monday. I somehow feel a little more attached to the city than the years before and enjoy each and every moment. I hope I can come back soon and train even more. For now I love sharing some snaps with you and over the next weeks you will be able to experience more #newyorkguide posts.
When I visited Milan some weeks ago, of course a must-see was the Fondazione Prada. It’s a modern and futuristic complex, filled with art and the café designed by Wes Anderson, Bar Luce. The Fondazione Prada is not necessarily what you would suspect from a complex build by a fashion house. The branding is very subtle, the design modern and the focus is on art rather than fashion. The architecture behind this concept is Rem Koolhaas and his team OMA/AMO.
A lovely Amsterdam Girls Weekend came to an end this morning but we got so many pictures and impressions to share with you – blogpost overflow for sure! These pictures we took a few weeks ago when Jana was on a visit in Berlin and it was so much fun hanging around the Gemäldegalerie in Berlin. Their shop, filled with so many good coffee books, is just a sensation. Blouse – Zara Boots – H&M
A sunny day in Berlin’s museum district but still with a little chill due to low temperatures. We are longing for summer now! If you visit Berlin make sure to head to the Gemäldegalerie. Its one of those calm places where you can enjoy a lovely morning. Best time to visit? Tuesday morning around 10am – much more relaxed than other big museums in Europe.

Home sweet home. There is no place like Berlin and no better thing than being home for a few days to spend quality time with my favorite blog partner. Some days ago, we finally managed to visit the Mario Testing “In Your Face” exhibition in Berlin. Mario Testino is definitely the pop star of fashion photography and his shots always capture extraordinary moments in the sparkling world of celebrities. Dress – Mint&Berry Blazer – H&M Booties – Zara
