Having their first bath is for every baby quite exciting. I remember my little one and his big eyes, when I slowly sat him into his tummy tub. Meanwhile he started already enjoying the bath in a big bathtub with a lot of foam and water toys. Slowly every room of my apartment is turning from a female home into a kids place, which I was in the beginning afraid of – but when I see how much fun my son has I do not care any more to live on a huge playground.
Especially when there are so many things that are not only exciting for kids but also for their mums! Why not kill two birds with one stone and redecorate some things in a way to pleases both of us. Here come some ideas for the bath for big and small ones.
Yes! It is actually as cold as it looks on the picture right now in Berlin. When I moved here 8 years ago, my first winter in Berlin was a terrible experience. In contrast to Munich, where I lived before, the temperature is much lower and even worse, many weeks the sky is just cloudy, so that on some days it is hard to tell if it is 9 in the morning or 4 in the afternoon. You many times don’t see the sun for days and everything is just grey in grey.
This winter we were quite lucky so far, with “a lot” (every 2nd day?) of sunshine in January and mild temperatures compared to the years before. But for sure you need something like a plan, how to survive those cold and dark months between November and April. Here comes my little guide how to get on during that time.
We have seen it at Valentino, Hermès, Sportmax, Blumarine, Michael Kors, Jeremy Scott, Moschino, Bottega Veneta, Chanel and Trussardi – just to name a few: rose in different tones from super soft pastell to bold pink is big this spring!
Just in time, pink statement pieces arrived in many online shops or even are in sale. Be inspired and / or have a look into your wardrobe for pink pieces. Playing around with different shades of pink and wearing it from head to toe is something I will try for sure this season…
How to survive the day where feelings have to be expressed like a lemon on a squeezer?!?
Every year we are confronted on 14th of February with the fact, that we should celebrate our love. I guess 9 out of 10 women don’t have a Valentine’s day that makes them really happy: In times when you are single, you get even more frustrated to be reminded of this status – no, there is not someone special in my life right now. In times, when you are in a relationship with a partner, who loves you but is not the type for showing his love on a certain day (=99% of men I know), this might even more make you feel sad. And in times when you are in love – why would you need a Valentine’s Day to celebrate that?
So, what is this Valentine’s day then? Isn’t it just another industry-made concept to consume once more things we do not really need?!
I collected for you some ideas – how to celebrate Valentine’s day in a way that will make YOU happy, no matter if you are single or in a relationship or in another undefined love status 😉 And you should do this not only once a year!
The 67th Berlinale is starting next week already and with a programme of over a thousand public screenings only the lecture of the programme itself can be an ambitious effort. To make things easier, here comes a very short TOP 3 of my personal highlights this year.
Here comes with a little overdue my short-report of “Berlin Fashion Week”! Three days packed with shows at new locations like Kaufhaus Jandorf and many side events were an ideal change to the dreary everday life in Berlin. All in all a lot of inspiration and fun for fashion lovers. Read more about the shows of Sportalm, Dorothee Schumacher, Hien Le, Greenshowroom and Malaika Raiss…
As many people say: January in Berlin is the best time for a long-distance holiday, somewhere in the southern hemisphere. For every fashion lover, who stays here, it is always the same fight: grey in grey weather and ice-old wind. I tried to fight the cold in different ways this year for Berlin fashion week, big furry (vintage! I would never buy a new one) coats and layering worked quite well for me.
