Here is a little confession. I have really bad luck when it comes to buying shoes that actually fit. I just end up wearing some that make me regret every step I take. Haha, the good thing is that this changes after wearing them for a couple of days and the even better news are that our modern world (that has solutions for almost any “first world” problem) Invented blistering plasters. When I first discovered the "Compeed anti blistering stick" after the Fashion Blogger Cafe I was quite confused with its purpose. It just ended up somewhere in my room. But luckily my little sister who can’t stay away from my stuff rediscovered this hidden darling. Haha, you guys can imagine me being quite surprised after seeing it in her bag. After a little argument about her way to acquire objects she assured me that this stick became one of her favourite items. So what exactly is it? - It is basically a stick that prevents blisters. You guys can imagine that I was quite sceptic when she said that. Haha but I bought myself a new one anyways (they are pretty cheap too. Something around 3 or 4 Euro) and I really have to say that this stick was worth it because it saved my life several times by now.
Today is for all the "Hauptstadtkinder"of Berlin. Did you guys heard about the Glossybox? Haha, it basically happens to be every girls dream. The glossybox is a beauty box that enables men,women or young adults to test 5 new beauty products every month. But the good news are still coming!

My older followers might know that I am an outspoken Rebekka Ruetz fan. I always liked watching her fashion shows because she has that really creative way of presenting her clothes. You see so many collections during fashion week that sometimes its hard to memorize all of them; I never had that problem after watching a Rebekka Ruetz fashion show. The Spring/ Summer collection was called "A Touch Of Frida" which was visible throughout all the pieces of the collection. Colour explosions and different print fabrics (for example the shirt with the "Frida-like" imprint) dominated the show and took the audience back to the Mexico of the 40-50s where the ikon Frida Kahlo originally lived and worked.
The Piroshka stage show was my absolute favourite this fashion week season. Her designs were simple but still original in their own way. The show that was presented by the Hungarian embassy was really beautiful and creative! I can't quite describe what it was but the interaction between the music, the models and the clothes made the installation appear somehow soft and therefore really romantic and playful. Piroshka is a Berlin and Budapest based fashion brand that combines traditional Hungarian prints (The inspirations for her clothes come from hungarian folklore heritage) with modern fashion. The collection is wearable without being to simple. I am a really big fan of the designer and her brand

90s movies are the best. Haha at least thats what I am suggesting here. No, I am just kidding even though I do have the opinion that movies like "10 things I hate about you" or (classic!) "Clueless" count as great movies. Thats why I would love to show you guys the new Forever 21 Pre-Fall collection focusing on the Preppy Look. Checked jackets and pants such as faux leather materials and denim are in focus of the collection. What I really like about the collection is that you can style the pieces in a modern but also classic way. Take a look at the lookbook pictures of the collection :)
The Fashion Blogger Café is always a good chance for bloggers to connect between each other. It is and always has been one of my favourite events during fashion week. This year was pretty special too. As you guys know I wasn't in town for quite awhile what meant that I wasn't to familiar with the newer fashion bloggers and Youtubers in town. Since you usually just end up in your group of people I tried to mix things up a bit this year. Instead of going to the event with my blogger friends I went there by myself since it is always an easier way to meet new people. I mean that's what the FBC was originally created for, right? It is na platform that supports bloggers all over Germany and helps them to connect between each other.
Haha, the last FBC that I went to took place at the Cafe Moskau. This years event was somehow more central, placed in Berlin Mitte close to the Fashion Week tent. By entering the room every guest got a confetti "bomb" that could be used at the local "photo-booth". A lot of activities were prepared so that we had the chance to try a lot of new things such as crafting our own little floral wreath or trying some neon themed make-up looks.
Today is just a quick recap on last weeks "Berlin Fashion Week". Sadly, I've got a bit lost in time while planning my upcoming trip to Turky for the next month. I wasn't able to report much about my highlights but I am confident that I will finish most of the articles by this week so that you guys won't have to miss out on all the beautiful collections and people that I have met during the past week. It was a really special fashion week season for me too since I decided to visit most of the events by my own in order to meet new people (You guys know that I haven't been in town for quite awhile and I just felt like it might be the right time to mix things up a bit. Instead of going to shows with some friends, I decided to visit them by myself in order to meet new people (and I met a lot of charming and creative young folks/more about that soon). The following post is just a little OOTD showing some of my favourite pieces (Haha, mostly black as you can see)
On Tuesday we decided to visit the Zalando fashion house in the Kaufhaus Jandorf in Berlin-Mitte in which the online store Zalando.de presented the fashion highlights of their upcoming collection such as the designs of talented new designers from the online platform : Not Just A Label. The overall impression was great as we entered the building. It was a somewhat bedraggled building with its own charm. A bit edgy and modern. Cocktails, on-site photo-booths and of course the collections kept the audience occupied until the aftershow party at the NHU DUONG club. In the following pictures I tried to capture my favourite moments for you guys.
The fashion house is open for the public from the 7-10 of Juli in the Kaufhaus Jandorf, Berlin-Mitte
You guys have probably heard about the online shop Amorelie.de
The online shop is one of the leading German online platforms for everything from lingerie to love toys etc. Since Amorelie is all about having a good time they choose to throw a party on international kissing day- how suiting. The visitors had a chance to experience a day full of creativity and love. Lovebirds could take pictures at the photo booth (the best kiss actually won a price) and the rest of us had the chance to pose with coloured wigs and other funny tools! I really have to say that the Amorelie event was one of my favourite ones so far. The atmosphere was really relaxed and everybody seemed to have a good time. Food was provided by the local Burger and Frozen yoghurt Van right next to the Tube station where the party took place. The fashion show by Escora began around 8 pm and ended with a burlesque show which was sexy and entertaining.
