At a place where plants dangle from the ceiling and fresh flowers decorate the tables, where homemade jams are served on little mirrors and a carpet makes that place feel just like home, there,Café Y! I would love to spend every minute of the day, at least! Welcome to Y!, the newly opened café by Herbary Hamburg.
When Kühne invites four handful of bloggers to present the new “Enjoy Dressings” you may think of the event being as colourful as the images below. After some wellness treats at the beauty salon “Adam & Eve” we were flying high at “Sturmfreie Bude” near the Alster – and celebrated with salads, cupcakes, a photo booth and confetti.
That one sometimes does not see the wood for the trees I had to determine once again during the past week: After I have been living in Ottensen, Hamburg for nearly two years, walking down the streets over and over, visiting cafés, shops and supermarkets every day, I thought I would know my neighbourhood very well by now. Well, at least I thought so – until I found myself standing within a stone’s throw away from my house in front of the concept store “The Box Hamburg”.
“Lys” is Danish and means “light”. But it is not only vintage lights that one finds in the beautiful shop Lys Vintage on Eppendorfer Weg, although owner Simone originally started the store with lights as a top seller. As a huge fan of everything Scandinavian, she brings chic as well as functional and innovative design from the North to Hamburg.

Finding a café which offers breakfast on weekdays also, isn’t an easy thing, I had to discover last week when a friend of mine planned to celebrate her (belated) birthday with brunch on a Thursday.
