Lately I’ve been obsessing with straight-leg joggers. I used to always say I cannot live without jeans and that denim is my absolute favorite… but this season cloth pants seem to win the morning struggle of what to wear more and more often. I already own three pairs of these kinds of striped joggers but my absolute favorite are those amazing red striped jogger from Zara. It was one of those items that felt like love at first sight.

Copenhagen has amazing breakfast and brunch places to offer. The cafés are furnished in a super comfortable way, according to the Danish „Hygge“ lifestyle, and the menus offer everything you crave, especially if you are into trend- and superfoods! But often I ask myself, why go out to have brunch in a place that is made to look like home, when you can simply have an amazing breakfast in bed at your real home? After all, it’s not that hard to create your beloved hipster avocado on toast or muesli bowl yourself! Continue Reading
It’s actually quite rare that you will see me wearing a dress. Mostly it’s because I simply love pants – they give you more possibilities for combination and are simply more versatile. However, I am also often struggling with dresses, because I rarely find a dress that perfectly fits my body shape. They are either too big or too small on some body parts, which makes it really uncomfortable to wear them. So when Sumissura approached me if I would like to try out their custom-made clothing line, which includes suits, coats, trenchcoats and also dresses, I though I might give it a shot! … the result is this custom-made red dress!

Growing up in a family with two brothers and a dad who are crazy about cars, there was no way for me to not somehow get involved with that topic. Once I got my own driver’s license – after miserably failing at my first attempt – I started to understand why driving cars can be really fun and even relaxing. Today I enjoy long drives during which I can just clear my mind. Think about it, when do we have the time these days to be all by ourselves, away from technological distraction, and just reflect? So although my focus is definitely on fashion, I was super happy when I got invited by the Autostadt Wolfsburg to stay two nights at the Ritz Carlton and enjoy the special summer program they are offering. I had no idea what I was expecting though.
I love having a signature scent. A scent that reminds people of me. One that makes friends and family say Ranim, this totally smells like you. Then you know that you own that scent! Actually, this is not so easy to achieve. There are a couple of super popular perfumes out there that just everybody seems to have. And even though you might say that the same scent would smell differently on different skin, some perfumes are just too recognizable and strong to develop that uniqueness. Continue Reading
„Only 20min until rehearsal! Guys, you need to be ready by then!“ says one of the trend coaches of the Wella Professionals team backstage before the show by Antonia Goy.
The stress that designers experience right before they showcase their new collection during fashion week is pretty intense – I’m sure most of us can imagine that. Working half a year on a collection and having only 10 min to present it to the world is definitely nerve-wrecking. However, we do not think that much about all the other people involved in creating the perfect look for the runway. Dressers, stylists, make-up artists, hair stylists… of course they too must be pretty much under pressure! Continue Reading
