Home inspiration: Linen sheets

I can´t imagine something better than cuddling up in fresh linen sheets. Can´t you?
And because it´s Spring time I thought it would be a good idea for fresh new Spring colours.
You can find a big selection of linen sheets in every imaginable colour on www.merci-merci.com.
I can´t even decide for one colour...

Julia Stegner for Vogue Australia

pictures via www.elin-kling.com

Never let it be said that fashion series are just superficial and cannot be touching.
This series photographed by Benny Horne for Vogue Australia featuring
beautiful Julia Stegner proves the opposite, in my view.
Every picture looks really natural and genuine like she is posing for a close friend.
Stylist Christine Centenera has chosen amazing 70´s inspired pieces for a feminine retro look.
This story really touches my heart and is already now my favourite of the season.

On my mind

I definitely concluded with winter and don´t want to think about winter clothing anymore.
Do you feel likewise?
Anyway, I prefer looking forward to sunnier days and and some new potential favourites for the beginning of summer.
I found pieces, which are already longer on my wishlist and some new discoveries, which are equally desirable.

Spring Essential

picture taken by me

What a beautiful day - life couldn´t be better right now. I feel really good with my new job,
I´ve finished my latest photography project and going to start new,
was at the hair dresser yesterday and love my new hair and last but not least
spring has finally arrived in Berlin and with it the sun.
During these days my beloved sunnies from Ace and Tate are faithful accompanist
while strolling through the streets of Berlin. Can´t wait for summer when it´s not only sunny but also warm!

Busy Days

Sorry for the calmness the last few days but I´m busy working in a new job,
spend a busy weekend and only a few free hours. Tomorrow, I´ll be back - I promise.
This picture of Edie Campbell illustrates exactly how I recover right now. 
I´m thinking about a pair of Gladiator sandals like Edie is wearing, and her dress looks stunning, btw.
Sorry, for these strange disconnected thoughts...

Kitten Heels + Straight Leg Jeans

A picture, which stays in my mind for some weeks now, is this one of Elin Kling 
wearing Straight Leg trousers with black Kitten heels.
I really like her unconventional way of combining two really contrasty pieces with each other to something amazing. 
A really simple but unique look, which would be perfect when Spring is going to arrive soon!

Delicate Earrings

After years of rarely wearing jewelry at all, I was all the more surprised by my new craving.
I´m talking about these teeny tiny hoop earrings from Berlin based brand Margova Jewellery.
These small golden earrings are made from 14 carat gold and bear the lovely name ´What goes around´.
They are just perfect to add a bit of femininity without being too conspicuous.
I think, it is time to break old habits and adding again a bit girlishness to my life.

Hermès Vestiaire Spring/Summer 2015



pictures via www.elin-kling.com

I think, I´m no longer able to share wintry styles or editorials with you although
this would be obviously more suitable to the temperatures outside.
This series photographed by Zoe Ghertner for Hermès Vestiaire Spring/Summer 2015
makes me longing even more for warmer days.
What I really like about this series, except the fantastic styling, is the mixture of still lifes and look shots.
This mixture brings along a really calm atmosphere and creates space for associations.
That means in my case, spending vacations in a Mediterranean environment and enjoying warm sun beams.

My first Chanel

Since a while I was thinking about the Vitalumière Aqua Foundation from Chanel as
I heard a lot of positive reviews about it. As my previous foundation definitely came to an end on Saturday
there was no longer time to hesitate and now I´m a happy owner of my really first Chanel product.
There was not much time to form an final opinion but, the one time I used this foundation,
I felt really comfortable with. Really easy to handle and so smooth and soft on your skin
that it feels like there is no foundation at all. The coverage is just like I was looking for, 
 really natural but still enough for a daily use with a glowing finish.
I hope the product is worth its money but until now I´m really excited about my first Chanel purchase.

Windsor Lookbook Spring/Summer 2015


A tendency by getting older which I consistently realize about myself,
is the fact that I really pay attention to high quality of garments than ever before.
I remember five years ago when I bought tons of clothes just because I thought I need this huge variety.
In reality that was a big fail. At some point I was more and more overcharged by all these pieces and
I´ve decided to reduce my wardrobe to the absolute essentials. In conclusion I also
decided to buy more timeless pieces, which are going to stay for a while and to buy high quality.
This works pretty fine and I´m satisfied more than ever before with my wardrobe.
I think this awareness grows at a certain age, sometimes sooner, sometimes later.
German brand Windsor. combines the pursuit of high-quality with accuracy of fit and a classic,
timeless design with a sense of contemporary aesthetics. My favorite look from the Spring/Summer
Lookbook is the bright yellow blouse combined with a brown suede a-line skirt.
They really convince with their range of leather goods, which are all really pretty and timeless.
More modern pieces like snake-printed trousers, all white looks and bold colour highlights
giving the collection a quite modern impact as well.
Check out the whole range on www.windsor.de.

Beauty Essentials

picture taken by myself

These two beauty pieces are my absolute essentials at the moment. The Mac Bronzing Powder
let my skin look healthy and sun-kissed even if the weather says something else.
I apply this creamy Bronzing Powder preferably with my Zoeva Foundation Buffer,
which is perfect to incorporate the product into the skin.
I really like the contouring affect and how it lets my face look more defined and simply healthier.
I think, that was really the best purchases this winter and I don´t want to be without those two anymore!

Zara Spring/Summer Campaign 2015

pictures via zara.com

Obviously, the 70ies tendencies finally reached the high-street labels like Zara and co.
Gladiator sandals, suede pieces, fairy-like maxi dresses and flared jeans let
the seventies lovers hearts beat faster and their wishlist growing longer. 
The collection has pretty much of Chloé and Valentino, which I really like.
I can´t wait for summer with these prospects. I´ve never before loved a trend better than this.
