Brrrr it’s freeezing out there! What to do against the cold, you wonder? Well, I would suggest to drink lots of tea – and try my vegan chickpea curry! It is currently featured in my food column of the January issue of Mio magazine, such a delicious and comforting dish on a cold winter night!

What time is it? – And a give-away for you

Posted in: Lifestyle · 18 January 2017

If the world seems to be turning upside down, Hollywood movies are helpful to just dream away and walk home through the night smiling – at least that’s an experience I myself made last night. In collaboration with JORD Wood Watches today’s blog post is all about time (and watches), plus, there’s a give-away for you, too. Have a look!

Weekend getaway: A spa weekend in Shrewsbury

Posted in: Lifestyle, Places · 13 January 2017

When it comes to traveling through Great Britain, undoubtedly I have many, many places to tick off my list still. Apart from a visit to Edinburgh, another one to Hay-on-Wye (in Wales) and the obvious train ride south to Brighton, I haven’t seen any parts of the UK so far. That is, until last weekend, when I was invited to a spa weekend in Shrewsbury with Mercure Hotels UK. Oh, how lovely it was!

“COLLECT MOMENTS NOT THINGS“ – what matters to me in the new year

Posted in: Lifestyle · 11 January 2017

When it comes to new year’s resolutions, I actually make sure I take time to put them in writing, thinking carefully about my plans I want to focus on, goals I aim to achieve, approach I set and the things I want to change in the new year. In collaboration with the Hamburg-based brand experience agency “EAST END“ I am talking about my thoughts about 2017, plus, I am showing you their own fashion edition “Established 1999“, created to remember to “COLLECT MOMENTS NOT THINGS“.

Throwback to a week in the mountains – and homemade “kaiserschmarrn“ with apple compote

Posted in: Breakfast, Food, Sweet stuff · 10 January 2017

Hi 2017! Hi new plans, challenges, resolutions and energy! I spent New Year’s Eve in the mountains, in Tyrol in Austria, where the sun shined bright, the sky couldn’t have been any bluer and the fresh air cleared out the head entirely high up in 3,000 metres. I’m back in London now, but extend the holiday feeling as much as I can let’s indulge in some amazing Austrian food: Birchermüesli and homemade “kaiserschmarrn“ with apple compote. Good morning!
