Royal and for a selected circle only already since the Middle Ages: Velvet, a material which celebrates its fulminant comeback in 2016. If velvet was formerly made exclusively from silk, it is now also woven from cotton, viscose or synthetic materials. Whether in the form of coats, pants or jackets, sporty or romantic, worn on your feet or around the wrist: Velvet is as versatile as ever. Personally, I welcome this trend very much as I am a proud owner of its many variations (mostly dresses in combination with cold shoulder, also sweters and bags).
EN It is again the time of the year: Christmas is coming! Christmas carols fill the crystal-clear nights, baking gingerbread cookies and enjoying spicy mulled wine - amazing! One is very pleased with small gifts such as today to St. Nicholas day. Even the packing of the gifts was fun and even more, I'm glad to conjure a big smile on my boyfriend`s face when he will open his packages today. Of course Michael Bubble can`t be missed during that very special season. 😇

EN Pinterest is the number one source to receive inspirations from. Let it be a new hairstyle, street style from fashionistas, halloween make up.... or nail polish. Pinterest is at your service. So one day I asked my self what`s the top-pinned polish shade of all time? Forget the guesswork. If thousands of women are saving it, it must be good, right? Acording to Pinterest the most poluar nail polish is: Essie Nail Polish in Angora Cardi, and according to the brand, has been saved more than 400,000 times. For fall, everyone's searching for and saving deeper, rich-toned shades and classic berries. And these moody shades are trending hard right now. Why? Colder weather, darker nails.

EN Hello my lovelies!
It is a little bit stressful nowadays because after work or rather on the weekends I go to the fitness center Jatomi here in Wroclaw, poland. I prefer going to the fitness courses, as I would not be able to withstand more than 30min on the Crosstrainer or treadmill and it seems to me too monotonous. Luckily, my friend as a sport- enthusiast accompanies me to the courses. Otherwise I would sleep in during the weekend then going to a fitness class. I try to do at least 3x a week sports: mostly it would be Monday or Tuesday and then on the weekend.
EN Hello my lovelies,
I didn`t write here for quite a while because I was really busy: On the one hand I had some stress at work lately, and when I came back home, I was already so tired that the one thing I wanted to do was simply to relax with a cup of tea or hot chocolate in my bed making myself comfortable and browse through different youtube channels. I especially like nowadays the channel "Annaxo" or "DailyMandT". Furthermore, I was in the end of September in Cracow and I have seen my girls from the university again. It was a Reuninen after 3 years and it was fabulous to be reunited with the girls again and while we ate delicious Indian or Italian food , we were talking about our experinces and what was going on in our private life.
EN Olivia Palermo`s style is marvellous! I simply cannot say if it is truely her very own intuiton or she is simply dressed up like this via her stylists or a mixture- what matters is the result.

Ich hoffe, dass ich Euch mit dem heutigen Post inspirieren kann und Ihr das eine oder andere in die Tat umsetzen werdet. Viel Spaß dabei!

EN Hello my lovelies! Today's photo shoot place is the Bulwar Dunikowskiego - my personal oasis. This was probably the best investment in Wroclaw. Here you can walk along the Odra, do a picnic, wet your feet in the mini-waterfall, sun-tan between the grasses and much more. Here I relax, here I meet with my friends or with my boyfriend and chat about everything. I just love it here. Do you also have such a oasis, your personal spot where you can fully relax?

EN Hello my lovelies! When Michael and I were recently in Amsterdam, we had the pleasure to stay in a magnificent design hotel called "The Student Hotel Amsterdam City" over the weekend. However I would like to emphasize that I found it via booking.com on my own and was impressed by its features and design. After our stay I read later in the german Glamour that it is a "must-do" in Amsterdam. In the Dutch capital, there are two of this kind: One is called "The Student Hotel Amsterdam City" (exactly where we were) and then the one farther away from the centrum named "The Student Hotel Amsterdam West". We opted for the more central hotel, where we had the metro station right in front of our hotel. Therefore we were within 15-minutes- walking distance in the center of beautiful Amsterdam.

EN Hello my lovelies! Sunshine and hot weather outside, but when it comes to the latest shops you will see that slowly the summer comes to its end, and fall is approaching. So why not buying one last time a beautiful dress back in this online shop called Dezzal? I had the pleasure to explore its items and directly fell in love with these 4 dresses. Why did I chose them? They are playful, very feminine , underlining the waist, and romantic - exactly my type! Embriodery, cut out, and off the shoulder dresses are in fashion nowadays, so you can`t do anything wrong. How do you like my wishlist and what`s your personal favourite?
1) Rose Embroidery Dress (here)
2) Off Shoulder Cut Out Dress (here)
3) Sleeveless Striped Print Dress (here)
4) Off The Shoulder High Low Dress (here)
DE Hallo meine Lieben! Draußen scheint die Sonne und Hitzewellen kommen und gehen, doch wenn ihr wieder einmal shoppen geht, add werdet ihr merken, dass langsam der herrliche Sommer sich verabscheidet und der Herbst bald anbricht. Also was wäre, wenn man schlussendlich sich noch ein Sommerkleid anschafft wie zum Beispiel hier im Onlineshop Dezzal? Ich hatte das Vergnügen einmal durch ihre Kollektionen zu stöbern und bin genau auf diese 4 Kleider gestoßen- Liebe auf den ersten Blick! Wieso gefallen mir genau diese? Sie verkörpern das Verspielte, das Feminine, unterstreichen die Taille und sind romantisch angehaucht- kurz um: genau mein Stil. Cut Outs und Off-The-Shoulder liegt schon lange im Trend, also könnt Ihr bei dieser Auswahl echt nichts falsch machen. Wie findet Ihr meine Wishlist und welches Kleid ist Euer persönlicher Favourit?
EN Hello my lovelies! It is again the time of the year: On the 17th of September starts again Oktoberfest, probably the most known german "fest" in the whole world, where also celebrities like Paris Hilton are always seen around. While dressing up, you need to know the details like the placement of the ribbon (so you don`t give any false messages) like Michele from fashionfraction informs us about here in her blogpost or keep in mind wearing a "dirndl" which is at knee-length. Other bloggers like Anja & Eileen from Stylejunction present us their favourites Dirndles here.

EN On our way to Amsterdam, we made a short stop in Utrecht. Especially since my expectations were fairly high because my parents were very enchanted by that Dutch city, also I was very excited to explore that lovely city. And that is precisely the problem: Never set your expectations too high! We arrived and of course we were no longer in the hot climate of Croatia but were greeted by an icy wind in Utrecht. It was gray and I have caught a cold. But enough of the negative aspects: Michael and I were only able to spend one day in Utrecht, so it is difficult to take an opinion.

I must admit that I started to play Pokemon Go, but I was never a fan back in my childhood. Also I`ve watched Suicide Squad together with my boyfriend and yeah the hype was too big for a mediocre movie. Hope you enjoy today`s post!
EN Hello my lovelies!
When I look at these pictures, I literally wanna get into the next flight to Croatia and enjoy its beauty, the sun and its hot climate again. Everyone told me already how gorgeous Croatia is and it seems like everyone was heading to Croatia this summer - what I can say? It is all worth it and I will come back for sure :)

EN Hello my lovelies!
When we heard that the old town of Trogir was declared a World Cultural Heritage UNESCO, there was only one thing to do: We have to go and check it out! So we grabbed the early bus direction Trogir. Just a 30 minutes -ride was the town of Trogir from Split away. When we arrived, we were again blinded by its beauty: How I love these sandstones with their colorful flowers, the narrow streets that remind me of Lisbon (fantastic for photo shoots because of the play of light) and enjoy a walk at the beautiful waterfront promenade. Of course we had to do a photoshoot in front of the sandstones: I posed in my baby blue (oh really ?!) Jumpsuit which looks more like a little too short dress, but if a small wind blows, there would be no Marylin Monroe effect. I also wore my favourite sandals a la Valentino, my beige bucket bag and my suede - belt underlining my waist. I love this outfit and it suits me, doesn`t it? How do you like it?
EN Perfect for sunday brunch, I will pesent you a delicious and super-easy recipe how to make Poor Knights. All you need for it is brioche, eggs, butter, powdered sugar, and jam. I made them today as breakfast in bed for my honey. He loved it :)
EN Split has a variety of activities to offer like the Split City Museum, and the Ethnographical Museum. A short walk away is the Archeological Museum, an excellent Gallery of Fine Art and the world - famous Ivan Meštrović Gallery. He is the most famous croatian sculpturer and a must-do for every art lover!
EN Just a 30 minute trip via a flotilla of water taxis right on the Hvar waterfront, or via a speedboat or rent one on your own (just as we did and I can tell you it is very adventurous!), are the Pekleni islands. The Pekleni islands are a necklace of pearls just outside Hvar town harbor. Viaka and Galesnik with lots of bays are perfect for swimming and snorkelling, whereas Jerolim is a famous nudist paradise;
EN Our first destination for the summer holidays was Split, Croatia. We spent there one lovely week: Enchanted by its beautiful nature, the sandbricks with its colorful flowers, overall lavender scent and the overall flair of Lisboa, Barcelona and Rome combined. We rent an appartmnet via airbnb right within the Diocletianpalace (better to say: the leftovers of it). The weather was beautiful (33 degrees), blue sky and we enjoyed everyday the fresh breeze from the adriatic sea. This time we weren`t just stuck to one place, but were very adventurous: Via catamaran, we went to the island Hvar and from their we rented a motor boat to further explore the Pekleni islands. We went to Trogir by bus to see its old Town (UNESCO World Cultural Heritage). Usually Croatia is a cheap country, but during high season (June-August) you pay double the usual price. I guess that`s the only minus from our trip. I loved Croatia, and will come back for sure!

EN It seems that the boho style never goes out of trend. Especially during festival season it seems that this style is at its highest peak. Spring chains, spiritually-inspired jewelry or Studs in the fashionable knot and tassel look are dominating the streetstyle looks. At the world famous Coachella in California or on European soil in Barcelona on the Sonar Festival: It's always Boho.
EN With a great breakfast you can start the day in the perfect way. It doesn`t matter if you are a sweettooth or rather prefer the savoury part of a dish- in Wroclaw there is a place for everybody. In this post I would like to present 10 Best Breakfast places, which are worth a try. Let`s begin our culinary journey!

EN In the literal sense the Goethe-Institut Pop Up Pavilion is a glass-made, 7x3x3m large ceremonial container, which will stand in Wroclaw at the Plac Nowy Targ from April to July 2016. In a figurative sense, it is a prism, a mirror and a lens, in which unusual ideas and artistic actions are combined, reflected and distributed. The project is part of the official program of the European Capital of Culture Wroclaw 2016. From April to July, there will be regular exhibitions, concerts, meetings, performances and artistic installations that are offered completely free.
1) Off-ShoulderPersonally, I can`t get enough of Off-Shoulder blouses or dresses. I simply love them, they underline your feminine and playful site and look so pretty.
EN Hello my lovelies! I wish you a very nice sunday. Yees, I know I do not often do sign in here, but the nice weather is just so tempting nowadays. 27°C , one wishes only lying on the beach, sipping a refreshing cocktail and fully enjoy the sun. I was also quite busy today: For the first time I participated in a bazaar, where I sold clothes, shoes which I used to wear ages ago. As german as I can be, I showed up at least one hour earlier before the event started But what do they say? Better be early, then late ;) And it was worth it: The climate was really pleasant, you socialize, and earn a little money. I am glad that I took part in this, because I also meet cool people there.
EN Hello my lovelies! When it comes to jewellery, which I wear on daily basis, I choose discreet pieces. How You may already recognize easily on the collage, mainly geometric figures jump into your eyes, such as the bird (by "Malababa" from Barcelona). Most were either birthday or anniversary presents from my boyfriend Michael and as you can see, the young man has a damn good taste concerning these good, golden pieces. The earrings are from Lilou, a French brand, which can be also found in Poland. This brand is very popular among youngsters and women, because each pendant can be chosen individualy and engraved. In this way I have conjured many times a smile on my friends` faces.
EN As I told you already, I like to watch the Snapchat history of many famous bloggers like one day: Jessica Mercedes Kirschner, a famous polish blogger from Warsaw, was doing a Q&A session on her train ride home, when she mentioned a famous Tv Reality show from the states, namely "Fashion Bloggers". She recomanded this show to see behind the curtains of a blogger`s life and learned numerous tricks which she is using to optimize her own blog and social media. Fortunately all episodes of this show are available on our beloving youtube channel. While I was watching it, I took notes and why not share it with my dear readers? :) Let`s go!
EN Hello my lovelies! We are always on the search for new delicious, interesting and exceptional dishes, that can be done within minutes and are simple. Today I will present you yet another dish you will totally gonna love it: It is a sweet chilli coconut-lime grilled chicken with coconut-lime Caulifaur rice. - Doesn`t it sound already delicious and mouth-watering? Scroll down for its recipe!
EN I can`t wait for the summer holidays. We finally booked our flight and our apartment via airbnb to Split, Croatia. Our choice felt on Croatia this time, but don`t get me wrong it is not because of Game of Thrones, although we are watching all new episodes ever Monday. But this is not our main reasn of this year`s travel destination. We are overwhelmed by its beautiful nature and the Adriatic Sea and it is simply a cherry on the top that we can experience the shoting locations from this popular series.
EN An apple a day keeps the doctor away... and why can`t it be wrapped up in an artistic way? Ever since I`ve seen this beautiful Cinnamon Apple Roses, I had to try them out. It`s very simple, the result looks amazing and is very impressive! And all you need are just these six following ingredients. Let`s try it out!
EN Finally we made it and went on a free Street Art Tour. I`ve always seen the ads on facebook, but everytime something else came up: we were either too lazy or bad weather crossed our plans for it. My passion for Street Art started in Barcelona three years ago. That`s a perfect way to see the other alternative side of a city trying to figure out what the artist wanted to say. You can find this two murals on Wyspa Slodowa, Wroclaw, the so-called party vel students island. You can see on the left side a woman wearing a dress made out of locks and swallowing its lock. On the right side, you will see a dwarf (you can see many sculptures in the whole city of these tiny fellas) trying to break free of its handcuffs.
EN How time goes by so quickly - and especially with the man on your side with whom you can laugh, cry, cuddle, or simply enjoy "uncomfortable silence" (pulp fiction). We can trust each other, enjoy the same interests like music, cooking and art and travel around the world without any fights. Of course we got to know our weaknesses like me being all grumpy when I`m hungry. We have both big hearts and truely enjoy each others company..
EN In my opinion dress-up parties are particularly fun. I can not wait to see my friends at the upcoming 90s party that will take place thsi upcoming Friday. More precisely, it`s gonna be a 80s / 90s party, but since I am not a fan of the neon-colored aerobics clothes, I chose the 90s. I want to impersonate a well-known movie character and immediately Mia Wallace from Pulp Fiction came to mind: Her costume is easy: Consider a white blouse, black leggings / pants, dark red lipstick and nail polish, and as a highlight a black short hair wig and your costume of Mia Wallace is complete.
EN As every year in the hot Indio in the Coachella Valley, California, took place the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival, also known as Coachella. That festival is held annually since 1999th. Since 2012, the entire three-day program will be repeated in the following week with the same artists. In addition to performances of alternative-rock, hip-hop and electronica artists and bands stunning installations and sculptures are presented. As always shows the festival of its very fashionable side: Roughe biker jackets with hat, top and crochet tops, fringed skirts and light, airy dresses in 70's style - this year`s looks of the IT-girls created an impression.
EN Hello my lovelies,
I truely succeded in inventing a super sweet version of a dessert, so let me introduce my idea to you today. a different kind of cupcake, namely polar bear paws decorated with coconut flakes. Aren`t they delightful? I guarantee you that the recipe is easy put into practice and conjures directly a smile on your face! Good Luck!
EN Colors this season transcend cultural and gender norms. Vivid brights give way to excitement and optimism, though quiet stability prevails in this season’s palette. According to Pantene, the colors of the year are Rose quartz and serenity. I personally love baby blue shades, whereas pink is a tricky color for me. Pastelle colors in generell suit everybody, and the light delicate hue flatters everybody.
