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 …
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.
It has long been my dream to visit Switzerland, especially Zurich. Mainly, that was because some of my closest friends from the time when I lived in Paris, live in Zurich and I long wanted to visit them! That’s why for Halloween weekend, we headed to Zurich and discovered the city with them! Zurich is a small and calm, but very romantic and charismatic city. If the weather is nice, you can visit Uetliberg, which is a beautiful mountain on which you can view the whole city from above. You should also just plan a long walk along Zurich lake, preferably on a Sunday since everything else will be closed on that day. Another really common tradition is to have an Apero, which is kind of an Aperitif at home, where you invite friends over for some snacks and wine before heading out to dinner or a bar. Altogether, Zurich is definitely worth a visit and the local culture is a very warm and welcoming one! What To Wear for an autumn day in …
In my opinion, Babu’s Bakery is one of the coziest breakfast spots in whole Zurich. The interior is traditional and romantic, and the food is delicious. You can either order pancakes, waffles, bagels or egg dishes but there are also some fitness alternatives like Bircher Muesli, Acai Bowls and Greek yoghurt. You should also try their excellent coffee! Price $$$$$ // Service ☆☆☆☆☆ // Location ☆☆☆☆☆ // Taste ☆☆☆☆☆ Babu’s Bakery Löwenstrasse 1 8001 Zurich What To Wear to this location
A hip and healthy breakfast option is Zurich is Juicery 21. The café is really small, but still cozy, and serves either warm oatmeal bowls or cold acai bowls combined with a variety of juices. In my opinion the oatmeal was a bit too milky and more like milk rice than oatmeal, but it was nevertheless well made and tasted nice!

The Cathedral of Santa Maria of Palma (also known as La Seu) is probably one of those places I will never forget. Everything was truly mesmerizing. The architecture is a pure sensation. The Cathedral has been designed in the Catalan Gothic style but has been influenced by Northern European elements. The highlight was the huge rose window through which the light pours in the morning. This is one of the world’s largest: 12m across and studded with 1,236 pieces of stained glass. We highly recommend to come here in the morning since the light inside of the Cathedral is just divine. Tickets coast 7 € but you will not regret paying this. The audio guide is also included and you should take one along because they offer some great information. Make sure to wear long clothes. Way to many people came in shorts, skirts and short shirts. It’s just disrespectful.
Fiore is a cozy Italian restaurant, serving brunch, lunch and dinner daily. We went on a Saturday to have brunch and it was awesome! We recommend the strawberry pancakes with lemon zest ricotta and the frittatas („egg cakes“ served with spinach and mozzarella). You can also go boozy and get some cocktails! Make sure to bring money along because they only except cash. Price $$$$$ // Service ☆☆☆☆☆ // Location ☆☆☆☆☆ // Taste ☆☆☆☆☆ Fiore 284 Grand Street Brooklyn, NY 11211 What To Wear to this location
Heading to East Village during my last visit to New York made me check out Ost Café, a cozy little spot located on the corner 12th Street / Avenue A. They serve freshly brewed coffee and little sweet treats. The café is packed with people who want to enjoy a coffee and work on their laptops (home away from home as I would call it). I really liked the taste of the coffee nevertheless I didn’t try something of their food pieces since I thought they were a little too expensive.

During my short getaway to Palma we came across this little restaurant. Hidden behind a church in the old town of Palma l’ambigú offers a good selection of tapas and other main dishes. All three of us went for the same dish since it just sounded too good. As you can see in the pictures we had a burger toped with goats cheese and avocado cream, french fries, slices of corn and a salad consisting of small tomatoes and red cabbage. Thanks to the warm evening we were able to sit outside and enjoy the calmness of this location. If you want to enjoy a dinner here, we highly recommend to make a reservation beforehand. Otherwise you can wait between 30 minutes and an hour to get hold of a table.

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.
