Sorry, this entry is only available in German verfügbar.
A quick hello at the end of the week. I’m currently on a business trip until Friday which leaves little time to write new blogposts for you. On the other hand, I’ve got a bunch of great co-editors which are busy creating new content for you. I’ll try to publish my weekly Food Friday as well, which will be online tomorrow.
Speaking of the look – I can only repeat myself how deeply in love I am with these boots from Boden. I’ve gotten quite a good response from you and many among you stepped in this last sale opportunity. Today I’ve got an easy weekend look for you – jeans, winter boots along with my favorite biker jacket. Spicing it up with some jewelry and a cool backpack.
I’ll talk to you soon!

How long has it been that I wanted to post recipes more regularly? I always love to read such posts on other blogs and I’m taking in every inspiration I get for new recipes. I always use to say ‘if I’m ever going to post more recipes they are going to the South Tyrolean ones”. Well then, let’s proceed with more South Tyrolean recipes up here. In my category “recipes” you’ll already find the one or other.
What are typical South Tyrolean speciality? A frequently asked question. I always reply: Schlutzkrapfen (a sort of ravioli out of rye flour dough in moon shape filled with spinach). But there are so many more delicious recipes. Another traditional one is a Milzschnittensuppe (toasted sandwiches with spleen in chicken bouillon), also called ‘South Tyrolean wedding soup’. A savoury recipe which is perfect for the cold winter days. I’ve never eaten it on a wedding but it is definitely a traditional recipe we eat during the Christmas holidays. Usually when we need a little break from all the food on the Christmas days.
60 g butter
parsley, marjoram, lemon zest
salt and pepper
7 old rolls
*recipe from Die Küche in Südtirol, Anneliese Kompatscher
Tap the spleen genlty, cut it lengthwise and scrape it out. Stir the butter and yolk until frothy and mix with the spleen and spices. Stir the egg whites until stiff and fold the spleen mass in. Put the mixture on the slice of old rolls and cover it with another one. Fry the bread in hot oil, drain and let it cool. Cut it into stripes and serve them with hot soup and chives. Enjoy!
- Spleen is not so easy to get. Whilst in South Tyrol a few restaurants still serve it, you definitely won’t find it in any German restaurant. Bovine spleen is recommended to order at your local butcher.
Enjoy your meal!
With the sudden comeback of the winter my wish for delicious soups increased. And speaking of Asian noodle soups I can never say no. It’s been a while that I didn’t eat any ramen and my wanderlust for Japan is getting bigger and bigger. And if we’re going to Friedrichshain there must be a good reason. Ramen X Ramen it was!
Restaurants in Berlin
RAMEN X RAMEN
By entering Ramen X Ramen you’ll find small tables to the left and right. I always love to sit close to the window and watch people passing by. The restaurant extends backwards. In Japan, it’s normal that people go on their own to the restaurant and eat at the bar. This is also possible at Ramen X Ramen and there’s a longer one in the back.

FOOD & DRINKS
Let’s start with a delicious sencha tea. For a starter we had some Osatsukorokke sweet potato croquettes (3,50€). I’d also recommend Gomaae, spinach with sesame (3,00€) or Gyozas (4,00€), which unfortunately were sold out. Amandine chose the Shoyu Ramen (8,50€) soy sauce based broth with Chasu pork, leek, egg and nori, while I chose the Teriyaki Ramen (9,00€) on miso based broth chiken, leek and egg. To be honest, I usually combine Ramen with instant noodles but they were so good at Ramen x Ramen.
There is no sincerer love than the love for food…
Ramen x Ramen
We spent a couple of hours at Ramen x Ramen. If that isn’t a good sign. Despite the minimalistic interior I absolutely love the stylish and cozy flair. The staff was super friendly too. I will definitely come back.

How long have I been struggling to find the perfect skin care? Forever. I’ve been trying out a lot of products lately but very few satisfied my needs. Dry skin is a common problem in winter. While I’ve been loving to use oils for the midseasons it wasn’t enough during the winter. As much as I love oils I had to find an additional day creme. In the end, I’m not using oils any longer because I found the perfect day and night creme. Beauté Pacifique‘s SuperFruits skin care is the answer (you may also have a chance to win some products at the end)!
my skin SUPERHEROES
Not only am I a huge fan of the Scandi interior but also their beauty products. And if there is one land of origin prominent in my beauty products it’s Denmark. Likewise, Beauté Pacifique has it’s origins in Hadsund, which lies in the North of Denmark. The company not only offers a great range of beauty products but is also known for their skin diagnostics. If you’ve ever done one you’ll see how interesting that is. Especially because they’ll tell you in which state your skin already is.
The SuperFruit line is especially made for young women like me. Honestly, I already catch myself looking at the fine lines on my skin in front of the mirror (I still hope that it is the bad lighting in the bathroom). But hey, at some point I should start thinking about anti-aging, which I’ve tried to ignore for the last years. The SuperFruit line is the perfect starter for the first lines for young women.
The moisturizing day creme enhances and preserves the skin’s properties to stay youthful and glowing as long as possible. I absolutely love the texture of the creme as it is rich and moisturizes. Moreover, it smells of green tea, lingonberries and leaves from apple trees – all high with antioxidants that protect skin cells which do wonders to your skin.
dry skin, blemishes and redness… my main problems in winter
The reason for my dry skin is not only the wind in Berlin, which I’m still not used to but also the hard water. Compared to South Tyrol and Munich it is much harder and leaves my skin super dry after each shower. Therefore, I try to prevent washing it with hot water as it damages it even more. Some cold water in the morning not only wakes me up but also supplies the skin with blood and makes it puffy and tight. After that I moisturizes it with the SuperFruits Day Creme. In the end, if that wasn’t enough my skin I also suffer from blemishes and redness.
After testing the SuperFruits skin line for over a month I’m very happy with the great result. The skin of my nose was very, very dry and I tried everything. Now it’s back to normal, which is one of the biggest sings that the cremes do its wonders.
dedicated to young women…
a little refreshment during the day…
Last but not least, their face mist. I truly got to love them as they’re so refreshing. I usually have a bottle of SuperFruit Skin Enforcement Hydrating Face Mist on my office desk and spray it on 2-3 times per day. I feel like my skin needs this additional moisturizing.
