A Christmas Day Walk


It’s boxing day. How fast this year went by, right? Sadly we didn’t have any snow in Berlin this Christmas.

This Christmas my mother visited me in Berlin and I spent a couple of days with her. It’s sort of a Christmas tradition in my family to go for a walk on Christmas Eve. My hometown is close to the sea, so normally we take our walk there.

We chose to go to Mitte and grab a coffee there. I was really hoping to have at least one day of snow this December, but sadly there wasn’t any this year. Growing up in Germany I am used to having snow at least once a year. Maybe I’ll have more luck on my birthday (which is next month btw).

I hope all of you had happy holidays!

Christmas Gift Guide for Girls & Guys

Christmas is only a month away and I’m sure some of you still have no idea what to buy for your family, friends or significant other.

It can be really hard to find the perfect present for them. You want the best for them, but you don’t want to go over the top. But that doesn’t mean that you want to buy something cheap and useless, right? I made a list of 20 gift ideas for guys and girls, which I chose with the help of my boyfriend, to make sure it’s something guys actually like. Some are a bit more expensive than others but I’m sure you’ll get some inspiration from it.


1 Lumix Digital Camera,   335€

Who said having a nice camera is only for girls? Challenge his creativity with this small, light and super versatile camera.

2 Thug Kitchen Cookbook, 14€

The title says it all. This isn’t your standard, fancy cookbook. It’s a “real life” coobook, with recipes that don’t require 10+ expensive ingredients.

3 Burberry Wallet, 295€

In my opinion a good wallet is key. I gave my boyfriend a similar one for his birthday earlier this year.

4 Monogrammed Phone Case, 50€

I’m all about monograms, I just love that it’s so personal.

5 Barbour Belt, 60€

Every man needs a simple belt. This one is subtle, yet still chic.

6 Sneaker Cleaning Kit, 21€

“Don’t step on my shoes!” 

7 YSL Fragrance, 48€

One of my all time favorite fragrances for men.

8 Sony Noise Cancelling Headphones, 300€

The perfect headphones for crowded subways and long flights.


1 Coach Cosmetic Bag, 75€

Every girl needs a small cosmetic bag which fits in every bag.

2 Hunter Rainboots, 160€

A good pair of rainboots is never a bad idea. Especially if you have a dog.

3 Kusmi Tea, 26€

You’re either a tea or a coffee person. I’m a tea person and Kusmi is one of my favorite brands. Perfect for cozy days inside.

4 Scented Candle Set, 82€

Grab a cup of tea and a blanket and light up some scented candles.

5 Victoria’s Secret Pyjamas, 60€

Nothing better than a cute pair of pyjamas, am I right?

6 Kate Spade Bracelet, 75€

I’m not a jewelry person, but you can’t go wrong with a simple, classy bracelet.

7 Bikini, 138€

Because a bikini brings you summer feeling in winter.

8 Chrissy Teigen Cookbook, 19€

Chrissy Teigen is one of my all time favorites, and so is food.

9 Burberry Eyeshadow Palette, 56€

I love subtle make up. This palette is hands down the best palette I’ve ever had.

10 Patagonia Teddy Jacket, 140€

In my opinion Patagonia has the best outdoor clothing, plus I’m absolutely obsessed with the whole teddy look.

11 Portable Printer, 125€

The perfect party accessoire, take a picture, print it, frame it.

12 Victoria’s Secret Bombshell Fragrance, 60€

Ever since I first entered a VS store I’ve been in love with the “bombshell” smell.


I hope I gave you a little inspiration. Happy christmas shopping!


Boots, braids and embroidered dresses


I decided to do my first ever outfit post. I do not consider myself a fashion blogger, or even a real blogger, but when I feel really good in an outfit I feel the need to share it on here.

We took these photos on the first day of fall. I just love this season so much, everything starts to get more cozy, the trees turn from green into golden brown and you can finally enjoy all the food and drinks that somehow is only limited to the cold seasons (I’m thinking about hot chocolate, pumpkin bread and all the delicious candy).

I found this dress at Zara, while I was there to buy the boots, which I saw on a previous shopping spree. About a week ago I found a bellsleved dress on Asos (I will probably also make a post with that dress) and now I’m obsessed with dresses, black tights and biker boots.



DIY embroidered jacket

Embroidered denim jackets are quite popular right now, sadly the pretty ones are suuuuper expensive.

A few weeks ago my mother cleaned her closet and asked me if I wanted her old denim jacket. I don’t usually wear denim jackets because I think they’re too plain. The one she gave me was a bit oversized and had a used look to it.

So I decided to do the embroidery myself, even though I never did that kind of embroidery. It took me about 2 days to finish and a lot of embroidery floss. I am really happy with the final result and I will definitely do it again.

My Handbag Favorites | August

BeFunky Design

I love handbags, they’re just the perfect accessory. 

I personally own quite a few, and all of them are vegan. Most stores like H&M, Zara or Asos sell faux leather handbags. Unlike H&M and Zara, Asos does have a specific search bar for leather/ no leather, which I really like. Most of the bags they sell are non-leather. Even those from brands such as Calvin Klein or Love Moschino.


But also many high fashion designers switched to faux leather during the last years. The best example is Stella McCartney, who doesn’t use any animal products in her designs.

I’ll link some of my favorite faux leather bags below:
