like a nymph

At the last warm automn days, I love to make a picnic by the river. It's to cold to go swimmig, but it's refreshing and healthy to dip your feet in the water. I'm wearing my favourite necklace, it's from Mali, the cross of the south, the sign for the tropic of cancer and the Sahara. Maybe it can heat the days a bit.
I like the combination, of soft, light colours.

summer spirit

The last weeks were very hot, so I could wear my new skirt. I think this picture really looks like summer, and I love the lace shirt. I took this picture in a beautiful italian city.

mint nails

I really love this mint nail polish, the colour is so fresh and cool. And I'm a fan of bracelets! They make every thing look more. The right one is from Thailand, the silver bangle is from Ethiopia, and the one with the cowrie shells is from Mali. I`ve made the left one by myself and the two others are presents from my friends.

A day by the river

I'm sorry that there were no posts for a long time, but I had a problem with my computer. 
But, here I am again. I wear a skirt from kling (see my post Barcelona!), I love the print, it looks simple, but cool. and I also really like the combination of red, white and black, paired with the jeans vest.
 I wear a necklace from Kenia, I love african artworks!

Viva la vida!

I have to say that I'm a huge fan of Frida Kahlo, here paintings are so colourful, and expressive.
But here life was very hard, at the age of 19 she had an accident which caused pain her whole life. But she was very strong and lerned to deal with it. I admire her for her belief  in life and her are real inspirating. I also love the film "Frida" starring Salma Hayek. You can take a look at her homepage, it has a magnificent design.
And, always remember her motto "Viva la vida!"

I'm back from my trip to Barcelona, unfortunately the trip got a bit shorter than we planned, but it was great anyway. Barcelona is one of the most beautiful cities I've ever been, everywhere you go are street artists, vintage-shops, artworks,... My favourite quarter is Barri Gòtic, it's in the historic city centre. There you can find narrow streets, small, cute shops and original restaurants. The picture above shows the harbour at night.
Here are some shops you have to see:
1.  in the gelateria gelaaati you can find handmade ice crem with very special flavours
2. the organic market woki has a very special design and is also a restaurant with a broad choice of food
3. kling is a shop where you can find cool clothes which are not to expensive
4. at papabubble you can watch how candy is made out of sugar

black and lace

This is my new jumpsuit and it brought my to the dicision that you always find the coolest pieces hidden in the corners between lots of other stuff. You really have to dig throught the shop, and even if you don't like anything at the first sight, you may find quiet cute things. this jumpsuit is plain, but also something special and it's one of my best fashion-discoveries. I paired it with a necklace my mother brought me from Ethiopia and with lots of bracelets. Next week I'm off to Barcelona, so there'll be no posts.

spanish delight

Friday evening I went to a party where I wore this shoes. I simply love them, the floral cut-outs, the black flower, their elegance,... I dont`t know why but I think in a way they look kind of spanish. I also like the bag which I lent from a friend, paired with my favourite black dress it looks très chic.

raspberry-chocolate tiramisu

What I love most about this tiramisu are the different flavours, the sour raspberry, the sweet ladyfinger, the bitter chocolate,...And it's quite easy to do!


300g ladyfinger
3 tablespoons amaretto
200ml coffee
130g sugar
250g mascarpone
250g chocolate pudding
100g chocolate, in small pieces
200g whipped cream
300g frozen raspberries

Whisk mascarpone, chocolate pudding, 1 tablespoon amaretto and sugar and fold in the whipped cream. Melt the chocolate with the raspberries (at low heat). Mix coffee and amaretto, dip the ladyfingers into the mix and put them into a form. Cover it whith the mascarpone, then put in the chocolate-raspberry sauceand go on like this, ending with a mascarpone layer. The tiramisu has to be minimum 4 hours in the fridge. Before you serve it, cover it with the cocoa.
Bon appetit!

arizona cactus

Hello! Here' s my first post, it's about a little DIY. I think this old ice tea bottle looks really nice as a plant pot. I was looking for a pot, but it had to be something special,... I didn't find anything, so I got creative and made it myself. It looks good with cacti, but it might also be a beautiful flower pot. The only important thing is that it's a small plant which is not gowing to grow to big.
You need:  
                                                   a plastic bottle (should be with a nice print) 
                                                   a plant ( here a succulent)
                                                   some body

Cut the bottleneck, put the body in, and dibble the plant. It's easy, isn't it.
