-Berlin Fashion Week Day 2- 'Marcel Ostertag'

The second day in Berlin started with a big breakfast with Reni that ended in a mini photo shoot in her room. I had to hurry like crazy because I went shopping with Magi, Jojo, Julia and Sina.

We wanted to go to the Gallery Lafayette, but ended up not going inside due to other interests.

I've heard a lot about Gina Tricot, but never bought anything from them. After our visit to their brand new store, I was the one that stimulated their economy the most. More about my shopping in another post. The new MAC collection also had to be checked out, so I also checked the cash register.

The Marcel Ostertag fashion show was soon to commence and we were running late.

On top of that we couldn't find a cab to take us to the event. We ended up calling a cab and were arriving fashionably late at the fashion show. It was my first fashion show and I was really impressed. Seeing it normally through the magazines and TV shows, it was really nice to see it in the flesh, although the models didn't seem to have much of that.

All of this made me very hungry. Jojo, Magi, Julia and me went back to the hotel to gather our belongings and grab a bite to eat. After some nice conversations it was time to say goodbye to the girls.

My day was not over yet. I was going to visit my friend Anne Catrin to see her play in 'Hinterm Horizont' at the theatre. If you are going to Berlin, be sure to check this musical. It is a real treat!

My two days in Berlin were super busy, but super fun! Next time when I come to Berlin I want to do more sight seeing and meet up with my friends from Berlin under more calm circumstances. Maybe I should stay longer than 2 days?

Enjoy the pictures!

- Berlin Fashion Week- Day 1 'Manhattan'

Hi Sweets,

On the 3rd of July I flew to Berlin to attend the Manhattan event which took place on the 4th of July. At 11.00 we gathered at the 'Kauf Dich Gluecklich' Cafe to meet up with all the bloggers and the Manhattan team.

The whole cafe was decorated with Manhattan make up and we could eat crepes, waffles, ice cream and a lot more good food as much as we wanted.

When we entered the cafe we all had to pull one card out of three different bowls for our 'Speed Dating'. There were three different tables with all their own theme (nail polishes, eyeshadows and lipsticks/ foundation). On the card it said where we had to sit down. I pulled two times nail polish cards and one eye shadow card.

We had to switch tables three times. It felt a bit like the 'Stoelendans'-' Reise nach Jerusalem'. I found the idea brilliant and really enjoyed getting to know more bloggers.  Some of them I knew already personally or from their websites/youtube profile that I visit and some were completely new to me.

The ambience was sugar sweet, all the crepes, waffles and ice cream were making me feel a bit high. All of that combined with great people and lovely make up was like heaven for me. 

After our sugar rush we were informed about the way Manhattan works and gained more insight in the creating process of make up. Bonnie Strange also came to hang out with us. She will be representing Manhattan. 

Manhattan asked us to create face and nail charts for them which they would upload on their facebook page. Since I was one of the lasts ones to have a go at it, most of the make up was gone. I still managed to create something which was kind of presentable. 

Around 17.00 we headed to the Excelsior hotel to relax a bit and get ready for dinner and the Grill Royal and the party at the Flamingo bar. 

Dinner was so delicious and all those girls together talking was a bit hard on the ears. I am normally surrounded by guys which talk in much lower frequencies. Imagine 20 girls put together.

The party at Flamingo was so unbearably hot that I didn't stay longer than 1,5 hours. We've seen many german celebrities and drank some cocktails. Since I didn't sleep the night before I was longing for my bed at the hotel. It was a beautiful sunny day filled packed with great activities.

I would like to thank the Manhattan Team for a great day filled with lovely moments and inviting me to be part of it all. I've met some amazing people and enjoyed being part of the higher frequencies.

Hope you've enjoyed this post!

Too Soon

Hello guys,

I'm afraid that I have some bad news.

Yesterday our beloved 'Capitain Schwarzkopf' died after a surgery that was supposed to save him. He was nine years old and loved by many.

We will miss him so much.
