Spring Activities!

Pic by Franzi.

Those last few days were incredible sunny in Hamburg! I love the clear blue sky above my head as well as the intensive warmth of the bright spring-sun on my skin. The singing of the birds, the bloomy smell in the air. (Oh, and hello hay-fever… Nobody missed YOU.)
What do you plan to do during this new season? Here comes my list with ideas to enjoy springtime even a bit more:

Go to the farmers market and buy a fresh bouquet of flowers for your flat.

Create your own herb garden by planting basil, thyme and parsley on your windowsill.

Make a stroll through your city and get to know the old streets new (we love to walk through Hamburg using this guide).

Make plans for you summer vacations.

Eat more colorful salads.

Have the first BBQ this year.

Make your bicycle fit for the new season.

Take out your spring & summer wardrobe and store away all those thick sweaters, coats and heavy boots.

Create your personal spring playlist 2017 on Spotify and listen to it in the morning while enjoying your first cup of coffee.

(Re-) start a new or old sport. Running, anybody?

Eat ice-cream!

I wish you a wonderful spring week! Enjoy the sun and all those crazy-happy feelings coming with it :)!

Two Days Back in Berlin!

The Müggelsee. Pics by Franzi.

The last two days I spent in Berlin with dear friends, my god-son and his siblings. It’s always wonderful to be back in the city of my own childhood. Looking at the Müggelsee reminds me on my own young years. And do you also smell spring already? I saw the first blooms and despite the fact that it’s still grey outside the warmer season is coming closer!

I wish you a wonderful week! Look out for those beautiful early bloomers :)!

Daffodil season!

Two little reasons to always come back to Berlin! (And yes, my godson wears a sock instead of a glove.)

Wardrobe Wish List!

Upper Row: Shirt by Armedangels – Skirt by Armedangels – Coat by Armedangels.
Lower Row: Dress by Peopletree – Dress by Peopletree – Sweater by Peopletree.

Today just a few wardrobe pieces I really wish to have. A new skirt for spring and summer would be nice. Oh, and those two dresses. The sweater isn’t bad either :). I guess I have to decide now, which one is worth to move into my flat.

Which piece do you like the most?

Spring Fever (or: Hay Fever)!

Hamburg is in full bloom right now, but I spent most of the weekend insight to save myself from those hay fever attacks. Nevertheless, I made an interesting trip to Finkenwerder on Friday, visited a Klezmer concert on Saturday and had a hearty breakfast Sunday morning. Now let’s hope for some more sunny (& pollen-free) spring days.

I wish you a wonderful start into the fresh week. Enjoy the spring sun!

WE2The trees are in full bloom now (achoo!).

WE4Saturday night I listened to the Amsterdam Klezmer Band at the Fabrik in Hamburg-Altona.

WE3Sunday morning: Delicious breakfast at the café Salon Wechsel Dich!

Just some roses I made myself a gift :). All pics by Franzi.

Yesterday, spring officially started. My mum visited Hamburg this weekend and we were having dinner in the delicious restaurant Sweet Virginia.  I was two times in the theater those last few days and enjoyed my leisure time with reading, listening to 1990s music and my friends.

I wish you a wonderful start into the fresh Easter week. Have a happy one!
