Ich weiß nicht wie es bei dir ist, aber wenn ich auf Reisen gehe, tendiere ich dazu immer ein bisschen mehr als wirklich nötig einzupacken. Hey, zu meiner Verteidigung: „Schließlich weiß man doch nie, ob man nicht doch in ein schickes Restaurant geht oder –wie bei mir viel wahrscheinlicher- man sich einsaut, weil man nach … Continue reading Mit FUNKTION SCHNITT um die Welt
So nun geht eine erfolgreiche Fashion Revolution Week 2017 zu Ende: Ich habe mir Kleidung ausgeliehen, Haulternatives kreiert, viel recherchiert und konnte mein Wissen mit euch teilen. Es war in der Tat eine interessante Woche, in der ich viel darüber nachgedacht habe, woher eigentlich unsere Kleidung kommt, warum sie Schaden anrichtet und welche Möglichkeiten es für … Continue reading “Sharing is caring!” Oder…?
Ich liege im Meer von Klamotten und denke mir nur: “Oh mein Gott! Wie werde ich das alles bloß los?”. Im gestrigen Post haben wir gemerkt, dass wir schon recht viel Geld für dieses Meer an Kleidung ausgegeben haben. Also schmerzt es auf dreifacher Weise, wenn wir ein Kleidungsstück nicht mehr tragen wollen. Denn das … Continue reading Hallelujah, es kann weg!
Heute habe ich einen Business-Look für euch und möchte mich direkt mit einem wichtigen Business-Thema beschäftigen: Konsum! Für einige ein Schreckenswort, für andere Musik in ihren Ohren. Fakt ist: Wir leben in einer Konsumgesellschaft!
Interessiert glitt ihr Blick über die vollen Reihen. Sie war überwältigt von der Auswahl, dem Gefühl etwas Neues zu beginnen und diesmal etwas anders zu machen. Und ja sie war definitiv neugierig, wenn auch nervös. Allerdings waren da doch immer noch die Zweifel, die schlechten Erinnerungen und im Grunde genommen, war sie doch sehr zufrieden mit … Continue reading Samtige Aussichten
Happy #FashionRevolutionDay! Obwohl es eigentlich nicht so ein “happy” Anlass ist, weshalb es überhaupt diesen Tag gibt, freue ich mich trotzdem Teil dieser starken Bewegung zu sein.

So, as you can see above I have a thing for cheesy montages. But come on, what’s better than two brown girls and mountains, right?! Ok, that just sounded wrong. As you can see, I have also a thing for weird introductions. So, let’s skip this part and dive into today’s topic.
Happy International Worker’s Day! This is a traditional European spring celebration and also in many other countries around the world a celebration of laborers and the working classes.

When most of us envision pollution, we think about massive coal power plants. Little do we know that something that we wear can almost have the same impact. The fashion industry is a nasty business and has a tremendous impact on the environment. Eileen Fisher, a clothing industry magnate, even says that it’s the world’s second most polluting … Continue reading Fashion Revolution Week

In my last post I mentioned … Continue reading 15 Reasons to love Bern

Life begins at the end of your comfort zone! I’m a true believer in this quote. Saying yes to things that may scare you is quite enriching. That’s why I try as often as possible to push myself and do things I know I might not be good at or that I won’t enjoy as … Continue reading Byron Bay | VLOG 4

For some people you travel the world and see places you never thought you would see… A couple of months ago I traveled to China to see MsMinaInternational , who moved there recently. She moved to Zhuhai, which is a city on the southern coast. It’s located in the Pearl River Delta as Hong Kong and … Continue reading Go East: Memories of China- Part II
In the midst of a big city I found simplicity. This February I went for a short trip to visit MsMinaInternational and her new life in Zhuhai, China. It was my very first trip to Asia and I didn’t know what to expect. But this allowed me to experience everything impartially. One special place that I found, … Continue reading Go East: Memories of China – Part I
Last month I’ve visited Berlin again. I have to admit, when I’ve visited Berlin the first time a couple of years ago, it was not love at first sight. The city is big, rough, dirty and you can easily loose your body and soul. But each time I went there, my love for the city … Continue reading People of Berlin
London, oh London, home of many nationalities, exquisite food from all over the world, ultimative street style (check People of London) and lovely architecture.

1. On top of Budapest Some people might say, Budapest looks the most beautiful from the top. And yes indeed, the city offers so many viewpoints from where you can enjoy the spectacular view over the city. I went to the Fisherman’s bastion.

This week I was crossing borders and it was all to see my long lost “amour” again… It all started in 2011, when we first met. It was a magical moment.

A couple of weeks ago I went to Germany to visit my family. While enjoying time with family and friends, I decided to show you the street style of one of my favorite cities in Germany: the vibrant and inspirational city of Cologne!
Mint has always been one of my favorite colors. And I’m happy to see it more often nowadays, especially because it is a spring trend 2014. Why I’m so obsessed with mint is, because I always thought it is such an elegant color. It is a nice color to wear, which is not too colorful. The … Continue reading Mint your own business
This look makes me feel flawless, like a real Queen B (see picture here Béyonce). And indeed, my inspiration for this look was the Rococo style / late baroque style, as seen in Marie Antoinette‘s style, with it pearls, expensive jewelry, massive hair, a huge amount of make up, like white powder, and pink cheeks.
I recently moved to Switzerland and wanted to share with you my impressions of Bern. Last week, after it has been raining and snowing, the sun came finally out.

Black and white has always been a fashion basic. So it is really nice to see it in many different pattern, stripes, dots and materials as a spring trend 2014.
Do you know that feeling of leaving? It has always two sides. Sadness and excitement. Two strong feelings that couldn’t work less together. Sadness because you have to leave your beloved family, friends and all the things you appreciate. But for me personally, I like to concentrate on the feeling of excitement. It’s a new … Continue reading I will walk 500 miles // Moving to another country
Auf meiner endlosen Reise bin ich mal wieder in der Schweiz gelandet. Viele meinen oft: ” Schweiz..mhh…langweilig.. nichts Besonderes.” Die Schweiz scheint unscheinbar. Das einzige was man oft mit ihr assoziiert sind Käse, Uhren und Schokolade. Und so muss auch ich oft schmunzeln, wenn ich an einem schweizer Flughafen ankomme, mich nach einer Uhr umschaue … Continue reading Neuchâtel // Neuenburg
Wo soll die Reise hinführen? Tja, das weiß wohl niemand so genau. Auch wenn es anstrengend und deprimierend sein kann, so gibt es doch auch einige Augenblicke, die einen hoffen lassen. Und diese Augenblicke gilt es mehr zu zelebrieren! Das Leben ist eine Reise.(“Life is a journey,not a destination.”) Und was wäre diese ohne ein … Continue reading Let the madness begin
Zu gehen,ohne zu fragen. Laufen, ohne zu stoppen. Verweilen, ohne zu rasten. Entscheiden, ohne zu müssen. Frei sein. Frei sein, ohne Erlaubnis. Frei sein, als Entscheidung. Frei sein, zwecks Vermeidung. Frei sein. – MadVoyage Photo: © MadVoyage
“Oh, what a night?!” Und was für eine Nacht das war: Ein unvergessliches Konzert, das ich gestern Abend im Zakk in Düsseldorf besucht habe von einer Band, die sich wie Fernweh und Heimweh zugleich anhört. Wie es dazu kam, möchte ich heute am Music Monday zum Feierabend erzählen.
