One last heat wave came in the past days. While I was wishing to spend it more outside I was mostly stuck in my bed with a cold and constant headache. Of course, I always force myself to go to work although I shouldn’t. Lesson learned: at some point it is best to stay at home and recover.
To brighten up the day I’ve got a new look for you with a little pop of pink and red. I’m so in love with this pink check blazer. Still quite a summer look which could easily be replaced with a pair of blue jeans. The check pattern is going to be a huge trend this autumn and I love a more colorful version of it. However, I’ve also bought some grey checked piece, which I’m going to show you soon.
Talk to you soon!

I do understand now why everyone keeps going back to Mallorca. We flew down from Berlin for a spontaneous weekend. Because some sun & sea is never a bad idea. It was absolutely worth it and I definitely want to come back next year. This time we stayed directly close to the harbor in Palma, which couldn’t have been a better spot for eating, going out and you’ll easily get everywhere from there.
Of course, I’ve brought you some great recommendations for a long weekend on Mallorca.
Ps.: I left my DSLR at home for the weekend which I truly regretted at some points. Luckily, we had an iPhone X with us!
Spend a day at the beautiful BEACH CLUB GRAND FOLIES
The beautiful Beach Club Grand Folies is a truly hidden gem in marvellous Cala Llamp (Port d’Andratx). We booked some sunbeds beforehand which was such a great idea. The spot was worth every penny and we’ve spent one of the best summer days there. Sea, a good glass of rosé and so many great laughs.
Beach Club Grand Folies also includes an ice cold sea salt pool (I preferred the sea, though) and a adjacent restaurant. So they’ll perfectly take care of you. Of course, you can also order food at the sun-beds. Apart from the high booking fee of 50€ for the VIP sun-bed drinking and eating prices were absolutely human.

How to get there If you don’t have a car I recommend taking a cap, e.g. from Palma it takes about 40 minutes and costs around 40-50€.
Since we were staying close to the MERCAT DE SANTA CATALINA in Palma we went grocery shopping there most of the times. The market has such a great offer of fresh fruit, fish and meat. I could’ve stayed there for one week and only cook. One evening we bought some steak and shrimps and put them on the grill. The taste was just out of this world!
By the way, have you already had scrumbled eggs with chorizo? OMG, so good!

Of course, one evening we had to head out for some Spanish tapas. As we’d already seen on Ibiza it is quite hard to find them on the Spanish islands. Luckily, PAXTI is a great dinner spot. They have such great tapas and not to mention the delicious steak. I highly recommend to try the various croquetas. Especially the one with squid are so delicious.
The week has already started with a new food recommendation for Berlin, which you definitely can’t miss. And today I’m back with a new look after the break. Feels good to be back in front and behind the camera to shoot some new looks. Let’s begin with a oh-so-me look – lace, red, summery sandals, big sunnies and one of my latest designer purchases. The beautiful Céline belt bag was on my wish list for a couple of years now and I finally got hands on it. It definitely won’t be the last time that you’ll see “her”. So much for today… I’ll keep you posted!
The summer break is over and I’m starting all over again with some fresh recommendations from the vibrant Berlin culinary scene. But can we reminisce for a second how great this summer has been (and still is?). I’ve had so many great memories and enjoyed it to the fullest. Sitting outside having brunch with friends, sipping on a good iced coffee and just living into the day on weekends.
One great new discovery was the lovely FREISCHWIMMER restaurant in a small canal at the spree. The area is also known for some great clubs like Club der Visionäre, which is on the opposite site of it, Birgit & Bier and one of my summer favorites, the Badeschiff.
Restaurant in Berlin FREISCHWIMMER
The restaurant FREISCHWIMMER is mostly packed on weekends. No wonder because there are only a few places in Berlin where you can have drinks and eat in such a relaxed way along the Spree.
My mum came to visit me which was the perfect opportunity to have a relaxed brunch there together. In fact, they offer a breakfast buffet on Saturdays and a brunch buffet on Sundays. We got there quite early so it was still calm and we enjoyed a relaxed coffee along with our meal.
There is a large brunch buffet on Sundays. We were told that they do a slightly smaller one for the breakfast buffet on Saturday. There was everything I was craving for for a brunch – sweet and salty dishes and all lovely prepared.
Summer break. The heat is on here in Berlin and I couldn’t be happier. Feels like my Italian summer last year. However, I’m lucky and we have a working AC at the office while most of my friends are dying of the heat right now. Poor them. But for the weekends it couldn’t be better.
Two weeks ago I flew down to Lago di Garda. Just a quick break from Berlin which was perfect. Soaking up the Italian dolce vita, having lots of pasta and pizza and relaxing by the pool at my dad’s place. Well, life can be so good! Here are a couple of impressions from our weekend.
I decided to have a little summer break as I wanted to enjoy my free time to the fullest (as long as the summer is amazing in Berlin). See you in three weeks!
