Is taking selfies a skill – can you actually learn how to take the perfect selfie? Well, I say absolutely yes! Funnily, I already took selfies when I was 14 years old with my Mum’s big digital camera and uploaded them on my MySpace profile… yup, I guess I always had a thing for social media, haha. But back then, however, nobody called these kind of pictures „selfies“ … until this word was invented and suddenly selfies became a thing. On YouTube you can even find video of girls teaching you how to take the perfect selfie. But don’t worry guys, it’s not rocket science – that’s why I am showing you today how, even as a beginner, to take the perfect selfie with only two ingredients: 1) The right lighting, and 2) Manhattan INSTA products for contouring and highlighting!
I am the spontaneous kind of person. I never thought that I would be able to say that as I was pretty shy and rather insecure as a teenager. But the many times I got thrown into the cold water just made me realize that not everything needs careful preparation nor a detailed plan – „just doing it“ might be exactly the right starting point. Besides, spontaneity is is simply way more exciting, and I love that! So… booking trips to diverse places has become my favorite spontaneous thing to do. Also, spontaneously putting outfits together, like this female suit, has turned out to be just so, so right! Let me tell you about it …
I must admit, these photos were taken within an intense study session, realizing that it might be time for my first post in 2018. But you guys know how it is around Christmas and New year’s … it’s basically the only real break in the whole year and with all the heavy and good food you just get lazy, and lazy, and lazy. And then you wake up, noticing you gotta go back to life and all the responsibilities, which actually feels quite refreshing after days of being a useless, inactive person, haha. So since I’m back in Copenhagen I am back to my student/blogger/somuchmore life. Continue Reading
I moved to Copenhagen this summer – as I was enjoying the long and bright days, I was already scared of the cold and dark days to come in winter. Everyone was like Yea, soak up the sun as long as you can – the darkness is going to be here sooner than you think. I am a very outgoing person and waking up to sunshine gives me new energy for the day. So, how am I supposed to make it through the winter? Continue Reading
… well, first of all: Happy Second Advent! Hope you’ll have a sweet and calm day!
Second of all… I want to talk about flared pants! We have come a long way from low-waist skinny jeans, over to Mom Jeans and now it seems like wide pants, and also flared pants have gained their acceptance back! During the last years, the fashion industry wanted to show us how cool flared pants are, but failed every time. We have seen them all over the runways, but nobody really embraced. It just was not time for flared pants yet – out mind still associated them too much with the 70s.. the shock was still too deep. I mean, oh boy did it take us long to get over skinny jeans and jeggings! I’m super glad now that we can wear denim that does not completely squeeze our legs. Continue Reading
I know, I know. Since I am in Copenhagen I haven’t really taken any photos that show you how beautiful the city actually is. Although, I already know so many pretty spots that I want to share with you. But you know, settling down in a new city is not something that takes place within 1 to 2 months, not even within 3 or 4 months! Even though you want everything to be all set and done – knowing your way around, having found your favorite cafés and restaurants, and of course, meeting the people that become your friends – it takes a lot of time and effort to get there.

Brrrr – it is already super cold outside here in Copenhagen and, for sure, winter is going to stay for a while. Winter always represents a little challenge in terms of fashion, I believe. Every morning you have to do a trade-off. Do I want to look stylish, or do I want to be warm today? Well, every morning we feel like Drake when he is singing „Can’t have everything; can’t have everything – but I want everything“. In this case though, we might be able to have everything: A stylish and a warm outfit at once. Wanna keep on wearing your favorite mini leather skirt from fall in winter? Then here is how. Continue Reading
There is one particular trend this autumn/winter 2017 that I simply cannot resist: Teddy Fur! Ehhh fur? Don’t worry babes, it’s not made from real Teddybears – so no need to hide your sweet cozy friends. Alright, jokes aside. But next to fake fur and wool coats, which I talked about in my last two blog posts (here and here), this one continues with another type of statement jackets for this season – with the Teddy Coat or Teddy Jacket. Continue Reading
Autumn fashion is all about finding the perfect knits, boots … and most importantly – coats! Yes, you got to make a wise choice when it comes to your coat, because you will probably wear it for a looong time… well, at least if you live up north like I do. However, there are just so many different coat styles! Last time I presented you guys the fake fur leopard coat, which is, I must admit, not everybody’s cup of tea. Wool coats, on the other hand, probably work for most of us. You just got to find the right color, length and cut!
