EN – Trialperiod. Last week I texted Nathalie desperately that I had nothing to wear for our shooting. These days I am complaining way too many times about my clothes and I am ready for the spring season! Right now I am always picking the same favorite jeans and the same boots (at least varying between ankle boots and overknees). Consequently, I am testing a little bit what I can combine in my closet.

Spontaneously, I picked my grey coated Nine in the morning bikerjeans which I haven’t really styled properly. Also, it’s been a while that I haven’t worn my Marc Cain cardigan and I saw that it matched really well worn on top this sporty jacket from H&M. As a matter of fact, cardigans can be styled were prettily with jackets or blazers below. Normally I don’t like the layering look on me as it get’s super hot immediately but you would think I was joking if I couldn’t style it. My beige coat from Benetton became a true classic piece in my wardrobe, which makes every outfit look elegantly. Its quality and cut is perfect. Adding a pair of pointy heels and a mini bag – finito!

Wish you a wonderful day & more tomorrow!

EN – CW8-9. Last week I told you how time is running by when you’re working full time. The weekends are worth a mint! Nonetheless I had to finish my papers for uni the past two weekends and I am glad that it is done now. Uni starts in mid-April again!

My boyfriend and I were at the opera again the second last weekend. I gave him two tickets on his birthday and we chose “Così fan tutte” from Mozart. We wish we could go more often but unfortunately tickets are always sold out immediately and all the good places are gone.

In the past two weeks I went to the WAHE launch event. The sweet girls of the brand finally launched her website and are on the market with their body scrub. It was a wonderful evening with lovely drinks and chats. I’ve been testing the body scrub since and I will tell you soon more about it.

Moreover, on Saturday we got our newest kitchen tool – an “egg-bathtube”, which I had to test immediately for our Sunday brunch. It’s over half a year now that my boyfriend and I are tyring to perfect our poached eggs. It is really useful and I am confident that they will turn out even better next weekend! Erst letzte Woche hatte ich euch erzählt, wie schnell die Arbeit doch dahinfliegt, wenn man Mal ganztägig arbeitet. Die Wochenenden sind gold wert, obwohl ich immer noch an meinen Hausarbeiten saß. Nun ist alles abgegeben und ich habe offiziell Semesterferien!

Wishing you a wonderful start into the new week!

EN – Blueshades. I've been working for over two weeks now and now I recognize what it means to work private life, work and my blog out. So today I have a new look for you that I've recently shot with Nathalie. We are both working very close and meeting up for lunch and taking pictures once in a while.

What do I wear for work? A good question that I argue with every morning. On the other hand, there is no dresscode at work but still you want to be dressed properly and professionally. My heels are happy now as they are taken out more compared to uni times. Also, I started to accessorize more with jewellery. My latest additions is this beautiful Skagen Gitte watch, which I'd seen already last year at the Inhorgenta. Their watches are classy and still cool with a really good Price around 120€. White watches are absolutely my taste. Moreover, I paired my new pearl earrings from the Valmano Collection with a pearl ring that I found at the Inhorgenta last weekend ... and lost it at a friend's place two days ago! I know why my parents stopped to give me jewellery on Special occasion.

Wish you a wonderful weekend!

EN – Chinese. Since I tasted the delicious authentic kitchen in China it is hard to find an authentic one in Europe. Most of the times I was disappointed. Luckily, I have a good friend of mine who’s a passionate cook with Chinese origins who let's me taste different dishes once in a while – always so delicious! Unfortunately, he hasn’t opened a restaurant yet that I could recommend you at this point. Let's hope he'll do so soon!

As luck would have it, we found Fuyuan. As predicted most of the restaurants were fully booked on Friday evening. Regardless we tried our best and were directed to Gyoza Bar once again. On our way we came across this Chinese restaurant which sounded delicious on the menu and offered some Sichuan dishes as well, which is known as the most typical Chinese kitchen.

The various dishes arrived quickly after ordering. As soon as the dumplings had arrived I was over the moon – so good. Next time I’ll order all types of dumplings. My boyfriend took the Beijing duck which was praised as their speciality. In Beijing I was told that the original one only exists there but as long as the taste is good it doesn’t matter for us. It was served the same way with pancakes, onions, cucumber and sweet bean sauce as I had it in Beijing. Very good as well! All in all, there is nothing more to add. Since it so close to our place it was definitely not the last time!

What's in my short-trip bag

photos – me
EN – Travelessentials. Today I show you a few of my short-trip travel essentials. Funnily, I travel always pretty light, when I'm on my own while I have so much more stuff with me when travelling with my man. "Do you always have to bring so much stuff?" - I guess you know that. But travelling light is not so easy. At least I can limit my beauty stuff to a few products.
CAMERA - since I have my Olympus PEN E-PL7 I leave my heavy DSLR at home. The 17mm 1.8f and 45mm 1.8f are more than satisfying for a few travel snapshots.

EXTERNAL BATTERY - the last time I was in Berlin I charged my phone three times in a day. My phone can't without the external battery anymore. I chose the one from Ravpower that you can charge up to four times.

PAJAMA - I always forgot to bring one. Currently, my favorite ones are from Princesse Tam Tam as they have so many cute pajamas.

BEAUTY - when I'm travelling I use a lot more make-up products than in daily life. When you're on the go the make-up needs to last as long as possible - primers are a must! I'll bring a few basics such as a mascara from Clinique, eyeshadow palette from Smashbox, eye shadow primer from Urban Decay. Moreover, a little bottle of perfume - small testers are also great while travelling. Hotels always provide shower gel and shampoos nonetheless I bring a few probes.

TRAVEL IRON - how many times I had something that wasn't ironed and looked awful. This travel iron is an early heirloom from my mom which she used on travels when she was about my age. This little one from Rowenta  is really helpful and expect the design nothing has changed much.

ON THE GO - while I am out during the day I try to leave my big bag at home and use a small one where the most crucial things like credit card, iPhone, ID and little beauty stuff fits. A camera can also be worn around the shoulder!
Wish you a wonderful day!

EN – Skii. What a wonderful weekend! Back in Munich it already feels forever that we were back in South Tyrol at my parents'. Luckily we drove back home already on thursday and caught a wonderful day up in the mountains for skiing. The rest of the weekend was not too good.

After over three years it was about time for a new ski gear and I was lucky to choose some new pieces from ATOMIC  The jacket and the pants are so comfortable – super light and amazing quality. How many times I was skiing with minus degrees and was freezing my a** off. My new Cliffline Stormfold jacket has two layers which allows me firstly, to cover the jacket below from the snow and secondly, to wear it alone in spring when it's already getting hotter.

Whenever you go skiing you should not forget your sun protection! This time I brought a lighter one from Tromborg with me. You can so easily burn yourself, especially when you're enjoying the sun during lunch break. Moreover, my Olympus PEN E-PL7 fit perfectly into my jacket's pocket. The size is just perfect to carry it around everywhere. For spontaneous shots I used the 17mm 1.8 lens.

Hopefully, we'll be skiing soon again and wish you a wonderful weekend!
