A Night Out in New York – Wide Leg Striped Pants and Crop Top

striped pants

 

New York’s style inspired me. While it is more subtle and casual during the day, at night girls from New York know how to dress up big time! The goal is to find the perfect balance between elegant, sophisticated and sexy – which is really not that easy! Going out here in Berlin and also back during the Maastricht days, you do not really care that much about what you wear. Basically, you could go in the same outfit that you wore during the day. But when I was in New York, I noticed that getting ready for the night was a whole process. Continue Reading

Cropped Denim, Embroidery Mules & Straight Hair in NYC

Sometimes I forget how much I like it when my hair is straight. It just turns me into a completely different person and it gives the outfits I’m wearing a more edgy vibe I think. But anyway, this post should not be about my hair, but more about this outfit that I’m sharing with you today. If you look at it, it’s very simple – I actually brought so many basic pieces with me to New York because I did not know what to pack – but what makes it special and somehow eye-catching after all are the small details and accessories. Look closer – see those cute ruffles that are sewed all around this denim jacket? Or the lace-up detail of this loose, black shirt, giving it a little sexy twist? I’m sure you noticed the beautiful embroidery of the mules I’m wearing though, just like the pink detail on my bag.

#AvedaCleanWater – Make a Difference during Earth Month 2017

Loves, today I want to share a somewhat different kind of post with you – one that is more serious yet very inspirational on a much higher and more important dimension than fashion. As you know, I’ve been working with AVEDA for half a year now and the more I learn about their company the more I am extremely happy about being some sort of brand ambassador – read more about my first experience with Aveda here and here.

Travel Video // Follow me around New York City in 10 Days!

follow me around new york city

Since I traveled around Australia with my GoPro last year, I decided to always record a follow me around video whenever I go on big trips. I realized that my travel videos are something I still love watching from time to time, bringing me back those beautiful memories and reminding me that it actually happened. Of course we always take photos, but seriously, among all the hundreds of photos we take on holiday, how many do you eventually look at later? Maybe a few, if at all. I guess there are only around 10 photos of a trip, which you will like looking at again, the rest simply did not capture your experience in the right way. But what I love about travel videos, is that they are an accumulation of all the impressions you’ve had, squeezed into a couple of minutes, making you feel as if you would still be there.

New York, New York! First Look from the Big Apple

New York

New York, New York – one of the most exciting and busy cities in the world. A place where crazy meets serious; a place where you can be who you want to be… well, at least if you got enough money. New York has been on top of my travel lists for such a long time. Is the city really how it is portrayed in the movies? Fancy jazz bars, high heels and short dresses, busy business men, advertisement overload, bright and colorful lights, buildings so high your neck hurts when looking up, crazy traffic with loads of yellow cabs, plenty of aspiring artists… I could think of so many more stereotypical associations with New York. And you know what? It was just that. New York was just how I expected it to be. With one of my best friends and now local New Yorker Vivien as company, it turned out to be even better than I expected it. Continue Reading

A Holiday Outfit for Restoring Energy in the Oriental Sun

In my last post I told you how stressful the last couple of weeks were for me and how much I pushed myself to my limits – as you can imagine, after the GMAT test my energy level completely dropped to zero. Since I knew that this is going to happen, I booked a flight to my second home, Cairo, where my parents are staying in our summer house. Being here right now is the best thing that could have happened. I literally feel how each and every day is giving me back some energy, thanks to my caring parents, the sun, the amazing food and the peaceful isolation I am enjoying to the fullest. When I’m in my overachiever-I-want-it-all-mode, I barely allow myself a day with doing nothing or sleeping in. I always have the urge to „seize the day“ – a motto I love living for, but sometimes I forget that a day of staying in bed with series or movies might not always be a wasted day. We need those careless days from time to time, yes, to restore energy and turn the overheated head off for a while. Continue Reading
