Prinsengracht

Amsterdam style is rather laid back and tends to be practical. The ultimate test for each
clothing item here is to determine whether you are able to ride a bike with it.

That is why I mostly stick to comfy clothes and don't struggle with complex outfits
during daily life.

My ten favorite places in Paris

After living in Paris for half a year, I was lucky enough to experience many places and see everything that I had planned in advance.

Therefore, I figured it might be interesting to share my best tips with you guys - maybe for your next city trip to Paris!



My favorite places in Paris:

1. Buvette has the best breakfast in town! 

2. Le Palais Royale is a very beautiful place to stroll, have a nice coffee or just sit and read a book.

3. Take a walk along the Seine when the sun goes down. 

4. Le Coq Rico has a really nice ambiance and lovely chicken dishes. Try the Cross Hermitage red wine with it - it's divine!

5. Père Lachaise is a real experience. I believe it is the loveliest in autumn, when the leaves are colored in yellow, orange and red. This place is so peaceful yet so interesting.  

6. St.Germain des Près is a perfect area to do some shopping, visit the Jardin du Luxembourg and sip some coffee in the sun. 

7. Les Puces (Porte Clignancourt) is one of the biggest flea markets in Europe. I believe that you can find some real treasures there, no matter if it's an old issue of Vogue, a fur coat or vintage furniture and lamps for your apartment.  

8. In the Latin Quarter you are able to find the best Falafel, but you will have a stand in line for fifteen minutes in peak times.

9. For ballet lovers like me the Opéra (Palais Garnier) is definitely the highlight of a stay in Paris. I did both the guided tour by day and visited a real performance at night. The place was the most fabulous you could imagine and the dance was simply breathtaking.

10. Last but not least: Montmartre is one of the most beautiful areas in Paris, even though it is very touristic. Enjoy the view from Sacre Coeur at night and stroll around the Abbesses area. It is truly wonderful.

White and Burgundy



A lovely Amsterdam Girls Weekend came to an end this morning but we got so many
pictures and impressions to share with you - blogpost overflow for sure!

These pictures we took a few weeks ago when Jana was on a visit in Berlin and
it was so much fun hanging around the Gemäldegalerie in Berlin. Their
shop, filled with so many good coffee books, is just a sensation.

Your Inner Bond Girl



I don't know why and I don't know how this came, but since years I'm a huge James Bond fan. 
I love the movies and all the fuss about it (yes, speaking of the new James Bond movie 
hitting the cinemas this year). 

Last week they released a teaser for Spectre and I honestly watched it about five times. 
Daniel Craig is a great Bond and Christoph Waltz will probably blow our minds 
away as the bad guy.

But besides bad guy good guy and a lot of action there is another very important aspect that 
marks the history of James Bond: the Bond Girls! A long list of victims, opponents,
spies, playmates and heroines. All giving the right amount of sex appeal and
coolness to the movies. Who wouldn't want to be a Bond Girl?

And guess what now everyone can challenge their inner Bond Girl with the new
007 FOR WOMEN fragrance. Just released this year it is the perfect 
counterpart to the men version and leaves us longing for more glamour
and seduction.

Following we want to share with you our favorite Bond Girls. It was hard to break down a list 
of favorite girls but here we are, sharing with you our three of the best Bond Girls (the 
list would have been longer if I haven't decided to make a choice of three).
