Festival Style – The Colorful Boho Dress & Lace-up Overknees

Boho Dress

 

There you go – part two of my little festival series with ASOS. In case you haven’t read my first post yet, make sure to check out the first look here. While the first look was all edgy with denim and leather in monochrome, today’s outfit is quite the opposite – it’s colourful, playful and boho! I must say, I instantly fell in love with this boho dress when I spotted it in the online shop. The combination of colours, the pattern, the lace-up details, as well as the woven, bouclé-style material make this boho dress so special, but also so premium-looking.

Have you heard about Kronaby? – A connected watch.

Kronaby connected watch

Probably most of you dont even know, but I am currently interning at a company that deals a lot with startups. Part of our job is to acquire clients at the many startup events and meetups. So lately I’ve been exposed to so many inspiring founders that discovered a market gap and are trying to fill it creatively, trying to make things easier for all of us. A lot of the ideas are quite abstract and it’s hard to imagine that one day I actually will be using them in my daily life. But then there are other innovations – the ones you can totally see yourself  benefiting from today. One of those startups is Kronaby. A company that I got in contact with through the blog though. And I dont want to be over-enthusiastic, but maybe that sweet connected watch changed my life a little bit.

So, what is a connected watch? You all know the Smart Watch by Apple, which is basically just your phone with a strap and you put it around your wrist. Honestly, it is simply not pretty enough for me to wear, even though it might be practical. A connected watch, like Kronaby, is something inbetween a regular and a smart watch. It looks like a usual watch – needless to say that the design is simply so premium and beautiful – but it has some functionalities of a smart watch. How? Well, the technology inside the watch (sorry cant be any more precise on that, haha) is synchronized with an App through Bluetooth and GPS on your phone, which offers great functions.

Let me get to the point – here are a couple of things you can do with a Kronaby watch:

  • Notifications: There are three different type of vibrations you can set as notifications. Select your contacts from which you want to get a vibration when they call or text you. This also works with app notifications, like from Whatsapp, Instagram, Facebook, Calendar etc.  // The vibration is really not annoying, cause its very subtle. You can always customize or turn it off.
  • Fitness: You can set a goal of how many km you wanna walk per day and it tells you the percentage you have have reached. There is also a function called „Get moving“ which alarms you to move when you have been sitting to long on your lazy back ;)
  • Remember this spot: You can save the location where you are at by pressing on your watch directly on your phone. For example restaurants, where you parked your car, etc.
  • Walk me home: This is amazing, especially as a girl when you are out. Select one of your friends as a contact person (s/he needs to download Kronaby Friend App) and send her/him a notification of your location when you are out on your way home – basically, letting them know where you are if they get worried. Also you have a quick function to send that contact person a SOS.
  • Other Quick functions: take a picture with your phone camera, turn music on and off, find phone, timer; date; seconds, alarm …

Plus, the developers of the software are constantly optimizing the functions as well as adding new ones. So, it can only get better!

Stop distractions – Stay focused

All of this sounds amazing, I know, but there is a whole philosophy behind the Kronaby concept. A study has found out that we check our phones 85 times a day on average. Well, I guess in my case its even more. And in maybe 70% of the time, actually nothing new has happened. What a waste of time and constant disruption of workflow. But with the Kronaby watch you can make sure that you get notified when there is something important. Like right now – I am writing this post and I have put my phone far away. I will get notified if I really have to look at it, and dont need to check my phone the whole time. It’s just so cool, I love the idea behind it, and I love that it works for me – that is the little but meaningful life change I told you in the beginning about.

If I made you curious, please go ahead and check out their website. There you also find more information, a video, and all their beautiful models.

Aveda Experience Center Opening & Introducing Pramasana

Last week was a great one for Aveda – on May 18th they opened their very first Experience Center in Germany, of course it had to be in Berlin, at Hackeschen Höfe.  At the same time, they introduced a new product line called Pramasana Scalp Care. So basically I’m just going to divide this post into two parts, telling you a bit more about these two great happenings of which I was happy to be part of. Oh, if you are not familiar with Aveda yet, read my other posts here, and here or visit their website.

Streetwear Style – Camouflage, Oversized Denim and Leather

Bershka denim Jacket

I took those pictures already a couple of weeks back – only now I got the chance to post them. What changed? Well, now my hair color finally got fixed, plus I completely cut this camouflage shirt into a whole different style. I actually just bought it to get a little bit experimental… from time to time I just enjoy a little DIY you know. Continue Reading

Festival Edge – The Monochrome Biker Look

Asos private label

Coachella has haunted us – it was simply all over social media. This year, there probably have been as many anti-coachella posts as „I-am-having-so-much-fun-here-at-coachella“-posts. Well, haters gonna hate, but in the end we can not deny that the outfits at this festival are indeed inspirational, even if not always totally wearable.

The festival season has actually just started for everyone else, so I thought I could show you two looks which would totally work for, let’s say a summer concert or any other outdoor music event, where it’s less about showing off and more about the music. But even in that case, the outfit still has to be on point… can’t really help it as a fashion enthusiast, can you? ;)

Reserved Store Opening in Berlin Tauentzienstraße

The last week has been full of events for me – juggling all that next to my internship is not that easy sometimes. Changing outfits in the office bathroom, starting early so I can leave early and rush to the event location… stressful, but exciting at the same time. But soon I will be a student again and hopefully also more flexible with my time management – can I please be a student forever? Continue Reading
