Ramen x Ramen
new Japanese flair in Friedrichshain, Berlin

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.

RÉSUMÉ

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.

My super heroes for dry skin

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.

From day to night | the ‘pyjama’-style dress

The winter is back! Luckily, my Boden order has just arrived and brought me the best, warm, cozy, what so ever winter boots. I’m talking about this pair, which you’ve already gotten crazy about on Instagram. Fresh from the camera here’s a look we’ve shot today. Another great last sale purchase (definitely the last ones) is this ‘pyjama’-style silk dress. I love the flouncing textile. And it goes quite well with the warm winter boots from Boden. But this isn’t the only combination I’m showing you today. Find below another way to style this dress up for the evening. My friends would say now ‘those looks are a 100% you’. Indeed.

Berlin living #1 | the bedside situation

a beautiful bedside table…

I’m already living four months in Berlin. Crazy how time flies. Also, it’s the first time that I live in a flat share again after returning from Paris in 2014 – already four years ago! In fact, I live with two close friends now. The most important thing is that we get along really well and I enjoy cooking together from time to time and have somebody to chat with after work (whenever I’m not out and about in Berlin).

My first interior post from my flat in Berlin had to wait a little bit because it’s still lacking at some parts. But I’m going to put you on the rack a little longer and won’t be showing all of it today. Today you’ll get the first impressions from my ‘bedside situation’.

I hadn’t planned to get some Skandinavian flair into my room. Usually I prefer the American glam look. Overall my room is quite white but I love to add some color and different materials here and there. Also, colorful bedding is a great idea too.

How hard can it be to find a beautiful bedside table?

It’s really hard to find a beautiful bedside table. I’m a huge fan of tray tables as nightstand. Luckily I came along the furniture of Cult Furniture. Fell in love with this model, ordered, happy. I absolutely love the open version, which you can also style with different accessories (there is also a closed version with a drawer).

what else is on my bedside table?

Speaking of, I can also show you my bits and bobs on the bedside table: a romantic candle should never be missing, foot care from Tromborg and two hand lotions from L’Occitane (find the limited edition here) and Crabtree & Evelyn Summer Hill.

Doze off WONDERS

These little wonders create a relaxed sleep-in atmosphere. I love to spray some Primavera pillow spray before going to bed. Moreover, tea tree oil does its wonders too. Amazing!

Next time my wardrobe will be up. Are you excited?
