A girl can never have too many shoes, that idiom is so so true! Especially with these fabulous shoes from Ni Luh Djelantik. With its top-notch material, NLD has paved its way from Bali to Hollywood and attracted celebrities like Cameron Diaz, Julia Roberts, Uma Thurman and Gisele Bundchen. I love the elegant yet posh style they offer in all of their shoes, but I am truly smitten with those gorgeous oxfords! More of Ni Luh Djelantik here.
For the Easter weekend I took a trip to the Black Forest in southern Germany to see to see my sister in Freiburg. It is such a cute little city, surrounded by beautiful nature and filled with gorgeous old houses and churches and tiny, specialty shops. My favourite one was one that sells old wood and iron detail ware like street signs, house number signs, metal balls, hooks, keys, buttons, and letters made out of paper board. – Julia
I adore people who can easily do hand lettering, and Dana Tanamachi is one of them. When I first saw her creations I was in awe, because they all are so beautiful. In the computer-era nowadays it is inspiring to see a designer who actually draws everything free-hand. I was totally amazed when I watched this video of her doing hand lettering with chalk. She is definitely an inspiration. – Sally
Kate Spade has always been a favorite of mine, so it’s one of the little indulgences for me to own their gorgeous bags. I really love the whimsical yet chic looks of all their designs, but lately I am into more casual looks. So when I heard that Kate Spade launched their sister label “Saturday“, boy did I jump in joy! Saturday has a casual and bolder vibe than Kate Spade, and with a more affordable price it would definitely brighten your weekend. I can’t wait to get my hands on one of those navy striped bags! – Sally
This week Lizzie’s parents came to Berlin! It was so so so lovely to meet them and we had a lot of fun simply walking around the city (even though it was freezing cold!). We went from district to district, since they are all so different from one another, and stopped at some of my favourite sights – above all the Berlin TV tower! We also went to see the East Side Gallery which is a 1.3 km piece of the wall which was painted by over a hundred of different international artists, turning it into a very colourful and powerful memorial. There was also a lot of grafitti sightseeing and lunch at a highly recommendable Austrian place called Jolesch. It was so neat spending time with Lizzie’s parents – I just love the Kirill family! – Julia
