Christian Louboutin Beauté

The Red Soles are iconic! And what is better than having the same red on your fingers as a nail polish. I could not think of something more tempting. Christian Louboutin should have thought about it earlier. Well I am glad he launched his beauté collection with these lovely nail polishes. The signature red is just amazing and I also managed to get my hands on a nude tone ( which are the most popular shades, as I was told ) They are so beautiful and the design of the nail polish itself is divine. This probably justifies the price and makes up for the little fortune I spend for these two nail polishes. This is actually by far the most I have ever spent on beauty products in my whole life. But it is kind of worth it - because it is not only a beauty product it is a design object and collectors piece. That's what I told myself when I bought it.

Where Coffee Lovers go?

This is pretty easy and simple. They go to Kaffeine, where else do you get the best flat white in the UK? Kaffeine was awarded the "UK National Winner for the best flat white in 2014" by the Beverage Standards Association. Congratulations - You deserve it. And I can tell you that this

#OOTD : The 5 Borough Tour

These Sneakers are made for walking! Today I walked all the way to Soho. I started in Knightsbridge, then walked through Chelsea, Belgravia, Mayfair until I finally arrived in Soho. I love walking through London when it is sunny like today. But the most important requirement to survive the long walk are comfy shoes that makes you walk on clouds -  these Nike Air Sneakers are made for shopping marathons.

Flower Love

I just love flowers - any bloomers in fact! Especially when it is cold, grey, bare and leafless outside. I love to brighten up the flat with any kind of blossoms and flowers. Everytime I look at them I feel joy and happiness. I don't know if every woman feels that way but I do. Here is my Flower Top 3 and why I like them.

Foodie Heaven at Ottolenghi

Hmmmmmmm these cakes do not only look amazing - they taste like heaven. If you feel like cake you have to go to Ottolenghi, who currently has three delis and one proper restaurant called Nopi in London. So if you happen to walk around Notting Hill, Belgravia or Islington pop inside, eat cake or have some healthy salads instead. It is a London Essential that you should not miss out on.

It is too bad that...

the Horst P. Horst Exhibition has ended on 4th January 2015. If you did not manage to see it, here is the link to my blogpost about it. Nothing you have to be sad about because this amazing book about the exhibition is still available. It is an inspiration and every once in a while I browse through it and look at the masterpieces like the Picture from the Mainbocher Corset.

Cappuccino Affair

Every morning starts with great Coffee - at least in my household! When I do not drink my coffee at home I need it somewhere else. The Ozone Coffee Roasters in East London show us the way to the strong black liquid even when were aren't fully awake. I could read this sign from 100m away and even if i can't the lovely aromatic coffee smell will take me there - i am sure.

Piña Colada for Breakfast

Well this is something you do not here that often - Cocktails for Breakfast? Yes you heard right! This breakfast is nonalcoholic but tastes exactly like the original. It is fruity yet silky, sour and coconutty. An amazing exotic treat which is so simple to prepare. What you need is...

#OOTD : Pink with All Black

There is no season for Pink Accessories - it is a colour that you can wear all year round - at least that's what I think. It works with dark colours like black as well as with light or bright summer colours. I love wearing all black lately but with some spots of colour breaking it up. Adding Pink to an outfit is always a good idea, even if it is only pink lipstick. In this case it was more than just pink lips.

Galliano's Debut at Maison Martin Margiela

Photocredit: Partrick Demarchelier
Today was the comeback of John Galliano who presented his first collection as creative director for Maison Martin Margiela during the London Collection's Men Shows. Since 2011, when Galliano said "I love Hitler" it was very quiet around him but now he returns to the Fashion World and joins Maison Martin Margiela. He seems transformed when you look at the picture above - he looks elegant, classy and mature. Three adjectives that you would not normally use when you describe the appearance of John Galliano. 

The Company which owns Maison Martin Margiela is called "Only the Brave" which has bought several other fashion firms such as Marni and Viktor&Rolf. But let's have a look at the Runway Looks from this afternoon.

To all Monday Haters

Good Morning dear Monday Haters, I have something that will cheer you up. Try my Chia Pudding (made with Chia Seeds and Coconut Milk) with Plum Compote, Mango & Yoghurt. Then fill it into a red wine glass or any big glass jar. The important thing is that you can see through how all the colours and components combine in the glass. Isn't it beautiful and it is so yummy as well as healthy. By the way Mango is a true superfood, it reduces blood pressure, boosts immunity and reduces stress hormones. It is also very high in Vitamin C and Iron which also improves energy levels. So enjoy this fruity breaki and have a great week.

Did you know?

That wild green parrots live in London's Hyde Park. They are so beautiful and colourful. First I did not believe what I saw -Green birds were flying around and made weird sounds. When they settled on this tree I got this shot of one of the three parrots. There is just so much to discover in London and you wouldn't think you see tropical parrots, would you?

Dinner at NAC - Mayfair

There are lots of London restaurant reviews in the pipeline. I will kick off this year with the NAC, which I really enjoyed. It is not posh and overly expensive like most of the other Mayfair restaurants. But don't get me wrong it is hip and a great place to have dinner. I think it is quite rustic, down to earth and has a great vibe.

Sneaker Love

I used to hate Sneakers, Trainers and every sporty looking shoe. But now I kinda love them. Funny how quickly things can change. Sneakers are comfy and can be pretty stylish as well as you can see above. These golden beauties by Rupert Sanderson waited for me and screamed: Take me with you - So I did. Thank god that the winter SALE is still going on.

Creamy Risotto with Brown Mushrooms

Risotto is an Italian classic which consists of rich but simple ingredients. But great Risotto is quite hard to find, maybe because it has to be cooked to perfection. I had many things on my plate when I ordered Risotto from rice pudding to rice salad. I will reveal my perfect Risotto Recipe. 
Risotto ist ein Klassiker in der italienischen Küche. Ein eigentlich einfaches Gericht, das man in den meisten Restaurants jedoch nicht bestellen sollte. Risotto ist nicht gleich Risotto. Von Reissalat bis pampigem Milchreis hatte ich schon vieles auf dem Teller, doch mit meinem Risotto hat das nicht viel zu tun. 
Ich teile mit euch nun mein Geheimrezept.

Sports Essentials for 2015

Fitness is a big part of my new routine this year. My goal is to hit the gym at least three times a week. Well let's see how it goes - but my new sport essentials are quite motivating. These headphones are so stylish and brighten up my training. They are colourful, cool and play great Work-out Songs on Spotify. I know that's what headphones usually do but they do not only play music, they are a fashion accessories and a statement - *I love fashion and even at the gym I am demonstrating that I have style*. Check out The Macbeth Collection for more designs and styles, if you also like unique headphones.

Monday Monday

It is the first Monday in 2015 and I am starting it with french pastries. A crispy fluffy croissant helps me through days like this. It is Monday and nobody likes it. For most of the people who are working it is the first working day of the new year. Hopefully this monday started off great like mine with these lovely croissants that I bought on the Marylebone Farmers Market yesterday.

First Things first

When I got back from my skiing holiday there were a few things that I missed while away. I missed my flat with my comfy bed, a Banana Bread at Kaffeine, Harrods of course  and a Pimm's at my favourite Pub which is The Bunch of Grapes in Knightsbridge. Cheers to the new year 2015.

Happy New Year everyone. How did you celebrate?
