Holiday instead-of-instagram

I hope you have all had happy holidays. I spent some very nice time with my family and friends, had a lot of good food (I made my first "Lebkuchen soufflé" and it turned out really good) and I was given amazing Christmas presents – many books, handmade sweets (yum), a handmade black and white jumper, nail polish and lipstick, Byredo perfume and beautiful bling bling! Thank you! X

Sporty Friday

Now that I'm on holiday I finally found the time to take some outfit photos again. I'm wearing my new Nike Blazer sneakers (in suede available here), my favourite coat by Sandro (a very similar version of it was redone this year), leather pants by J Brand, Alexander Wang leo bag, and a red turban which I borrowed from my sister.

Party animal

Say hello to my new evening bag! Alexander Wang's leo camera bag eventually found its way to me! I took it out for the first time last night.

Neon knit

If you don't want to spend 110 Euros on Acne's Neon yellow beanie (or if it's sold out) I recommend you just knit your own with neon wool. Very easy and if the thread's big enough it's finished really quickly. You can find knitting patterns online.

Travel notes

Today a colleague of mine said good-bye with the words "I'm off to Bali on Sunday" and while we were talking about his travel plans I made mental notes for my own next year. You have probably seen Lucy's Goa photos ... I would love to go on a Yoga trip and take some time out - India, Bali, Vietnam, ... we'll see.

Snow and christmas shopping

Me and my mother did some extensive Christmas gift shopping this Saturday. Some snapshots above: in the Acne dressing room (with Filippa), Christmas windows, chocolates and a lot of snow on my balcony.

More gift ideas

I already gave you some gift ideas but since it's so much fun to choose things that will make other people happy, here are some more: star necklace, salt and pepper set, festive nail polish, Stella McCartney iPhone case and iPad case, Athena Procopipou scarf, and Jennifer Meyer diamond earrings (Wow!). (My holographic nail polish would look good in this picture, too.)

First snow


The first snow fell this week. So I thought it's time for another winter mood board.

Flyknit One

I can't remember the last time I was smitten with the beauty of running shoes. Most times they are practical and look like it. But I absolutely love the new "Flyknit One" by Nike – the colour mixes are amazing! I still have a few months to decide which one to get, as they will be in stores in February 2013.

The living room

I've already posted a few photos of my home but I still need to show you some details from my re-decorated living room. Voilà: a new mood board and sideboard.

List of wishes

Is it too early to think of Christmas wishes? ... I figure since I am making wishlists all the time, I can get away with it. ;) Above: Filippa Cashmere Sweater from Acne, Lilith necklace from Dannijo, Blanche from Byredo (available at Anita Hass, for instance), "Amandine" sneakers from Sandro, earrings "Dark side of the moon" and "Shoot the Moon" from Catbird, vintage mini Chanel flap (sometimes available at Malleries) and – the best – a Persian cat.

Holographic nails

The moment I saw this nail polish I knew I had to get it. Ziggy Stardust nails! I've always loved holographic material. This "psychedelic holographic nail polish" comes from the Danish brand FNUG. (You can also order it here or here.) They recommend a special base coat to make the holographic effect stronger. I love it!

Distressed denim

I admit it, it's neither particularly practical for winter (at least not if you live in Hamburg) nor does it make very much sense to spend a lot of money on something that is already damaged when you buy it – but still I can't help thinking how great distressed denim would look with big, chunky knitwear. My favourites come from Rag & Bone and Paige (both pictured above).

See you soon, PS1

Yesterday I had to send my PS1 back to Opening Ceremony in Los Angeles because, having had it for less than six months, the hooks on the shoulder strap kept breaking and they have to be repaired. When I checked the shipping status today, it said that the German mail had sent the bag to Italy. ... Now I'm having doubts about whether this was a good idea ... I can only hope that I'll have my favourite bag soon. Keep your fingers crossed for me!

Cupcakes and Co.

Since I am (still) not on Instagram I have to share some of my snapshots with you here. As you can see, I wouldn't add anything unusual to Instagram anyway – just the usual flowers, cupcakes and so on. ... In the first two photos you can see a new favourite nail polish: "HAM" by Uslu Airlines
