Back in the grey, rainy, cold (here I could add countless moody adjectives) Berlin, these pictures will definitely make you feel good. For one week I was on Mallorca, where spring was already in its heyday. Mallorca is particularly beautiful in the low season because everything is blooming and flourishing instead of the burnt landscape from the heath. More pictures of Mallorca will follow this weekend on Instagram and soon here on the blog.
And if there was one look I’ve been wearing continuously over the last few days, it was this one. I love my new navy blue leather jacket from JOOP! combined to a light shirt blouse and my white J brand jeans (which I was luckily able to wash several times ;-) ). I will definitely put on the look in the coming weeks in a continuous loop in the office.

I wish you a wonderful beginning of the week! While winter has returned again in Berlin, I send you springlike greetings from South Tyrol. On Sunday the weather was so nice and warm. At Waltherplatz some people drank “un caffé”, others the first “Aperol Spritz”. Truly la Dolce Vita!
We strolled along the Runkelsteinstraße (one of my favourite streets in Bozen) down to the BoznerObstmarkt. The magnolia trees bloomed especially early this year – just beautiful! My family and I stopped for lunch at the Gasthaus Fink.
On Sunday you should definitely book a table in Bolzano, because only a few restaurants are open.
A new lifestyle is being celebrated at the Baltic Sea in Lübeck Bay: Since mid-July 2018, the ARBOREA Resort has opened directly at the Ancora Marina – the largest marina in Northern Europe – and invites visitors to discover a new way of being together. The variety of nature in the North, various sports activities, excellent cuisine and the unique EXPERIENCE.TOGETHER feeling of the ARBOREA Resort convince families, couples, adventurers, business travellers, sports fans and connoisseurs!
Better together – The new ARBOREA Resort at ANCORA MARINA
Baltic Sea relaxed & entertaining – AT THE ARBOREA RESORT
Your arrival starts very relaxed. Best is to take a seat in the foyer in a relaxed atmosphere and be welcomed by the very courteous hotel staff. The first walk to the beach of the Baltic Sea should not be postponed for long. In fact, the beach is only a few footsteps away from the ARBOREAResort! You can’t resist the private beach with its cool wicker beach chairs, the light waves and its pleasant roar, the fresh breeze and the not to be missed seagull cries anyway. For those who have arrived: Close your eyes & enjoy to the fullest!
TheStairs – AMPHITHEATER FOR EVERYONE
An eye-catcher in the middle of the AROBOREAResort is the “Amphitheater” – a huge wooden staircase TheStairs with a view through the glass front towards the beach and the lush salt marshes. A nice place to retreat, although it is accessible to everyone. Here you can relax comfortably in your “own corner”, have delicious drinks, talk in large groups or intimate and yes, even work! TheStairs is the meeting place for pleasant and entertaining hours, for exciting meetings and interesting conversations such as an astronomy evening with the local astronomy expert Peter Weinreich.
By the way: Live music will be played if the weather is good. The guitar live music was extremely good. Be there and listen!
Sport, excursions and recreation inLÜBECK BAY
For active hotel guests there are plenty of activities: whether a hiking tour in the Neustädter area or an easy e-bike ride through nearby forests and fields or an exciting day on a sailing yacht in sunshine or wind and weather – everyone will surely find something for their taste to discover something new or to power themselves up.
If you want to find out more about Neustadt in Holstein or the nearby city of Lübeck – city excursions are organized by the hotel and highly recommended! The Hanseatic city of Hamburg can also be reached within an hour of car ride.
Instead of a taxi ride, the resort offers guests e-car rental. A really very welcome service!
You can also get away from it all in the hotel’s own gym and after so much – pleasant effort – the 1,000 square metre Spa-Area Sparadise with a large spa area, panorama sauna, bio-sauna and infinity pool awaits you as a reward. The magnificent view of the Baltic Sea is like a cherry on a cream cake.
The ARBOREA Resort – NATURAL, AUTHENTIC, REGIONAL
Speaking of good food: After so much caressing of the soul, the palate also wants to be pampered! The GrandGrand Grill Restaurant is the pearl of the ARBOREAResort. Here you can even watch the grill master preparing the dinner on the fire grill! In the gallery on the second floor of the restaurant, the ambience is particularly pleasant and ideal for celebrations and quiet conversations.
Good to know: 80 percent of the food used in the ARBOREAResort is sourced from partners in the regions within a radius of 100 kilometres. The idea of sustainability is written in capital letters here and is also implemented in the best possible way in everyday working life.
Not only hotel guests can enjoy the culinary delights of the chefs, guests from outside are also very welcome! In the resort’s join-inkitchen everyone is his own chef who wants to have fun cooking, grilling, roasting and baking together and spend time well in amusing company. At the end of a steak cooking course there is even a well-deserved steak diploma.
And it’s absolutely true: “Holiday is what you make of it” and we absolutely agree with this infectious good attitude of the ARBOREAResort!
One style has become indispensable in the gastronomic scene – Art Deco. Funky design elements combined to delicate pastel shades on the walls and as furniture for instance. In addition, there are materials such as white perforated sheeting and colourful accessories. All this can be found in the new Lilli P Restaurant. And no, the P does not stand for pastel, but is the abbreviation for the street of the same name named after the actress Lilli Palmer.
I chose the Asia Bowl with additional lentils and sea asparagus in chili with goat cheese, coriander and turmeric dressing on top. The bowl was absolutely delicious, tasted very healthy and I would order the same again.
Restaurants/Cafés in München RÉSUMÉ
The location of the restaurant / café was perfect for me, as I mostly spend the night near the Donnersberger bridge. The ambience is super relaxed, the interior, as you can see, super lovingly designed. The staff is very friendly and courteous. I’d love to come back again.
Unfortunately the restaurant is only open Mondays to Fridays from 8:00 – 20:00 o’clock. In fact, the opening hours are mainly directed to the offices in the surrounding area. The restaurant is perfect for after-work during the week. During the warmer days there is a spacious sun terrace. Let’s hope that they’ll open for the weekends during summer time too.

Hello from sunny Mallorca! The week was quite busy, that I only now manage to get back to you. The week just raced on. Last week I went to Munich again. Joop x Siemens invited me to a relaxed cooking evening with Nelson Müller. The evening was super nice and I was happy to meet new faces. I extended my stay in Munich by a few days to meet my closest friends. Because I was already so far South I added some days back home in South Tyrol. Tuesday evening I arrived super late in Berlin and had to repack my suitcase for the flight in the afternoon of the next day. In fact, I filmed the whole day a cooperation with Sheisido in the beautiful Gorki-Appartments in Berlin-Mitte. Into the taxi and straight to the airport after the shoot. I am looking forward to a relaxed week in Mallorca now. You will get pictures soon!
The white trousers are back. Somehow all my couples are too cold for the winter (pantyhose under trousers is not my thing). For everyday life I am always looking for pretty tops and found this striped body. I must confess that bodies simply fit better. As a colour accent I took my yellow Pinko bag out of its hibernation. It’s not that warm yet, but my Trenchs can also be fetched under the bed (my friend just can’t believe that you have to clean out his closet for winter / summer – yes, I have to clean it out again!).
