Lifestyle: The Impact Of Languages

EF International Language School London

Hi ladies, a school exchange to London in 1999 sparked my love for the UK. Back then as a teenager, I was absolutely overwhelmed by the vibrant culture and energetic chaos that is London. The trip impacted my entire life and I dedicated all of my time to improve my English. The aim was to return to London after my A-Levels and in 2005 the time had finally come. I attended a private language school by EF. These days, my school which is only a short walk from Waterloo and Southwark station has been in the news and also sparked nostalgia in me.

It has now been 10 years since I’ve finished my A-Levels with an ‘Outstanding’ in English. In autumn 2005, I would attend a private international language school in central London, run by EF. EF (education first) is a private organisation that offers language courses at their private schools spread across the globe and also organises Au-Pair opportunities to the US. I first heard about the Au-Pair programme but when I visited the EF HQ in Berlin for an Au-Pair interview, my attention was soon drawn to a brochure introducing the language courses. London was one of their top schools in Europe, so the US were very, very quickly forgotten.

Lifestyle: On Top Of Europe. The View From The Shard London.

The Shard London

Hi ladies, how are you? The weather has been so horrible in London lately, but rain and cold have not stopped me from exploring the vibrant city. My recent discovery brought me to The Shard* where I had an incredible time sightseeing together with my friend Serene.

If you wouldn’t know that The Shard is London’s latest addition, you would assume it has always been a part of the magnificent city skyline. The impressive building with its shiny, flawless glass front blends in so smoothly into the capital’s history that you wouldn’t believe that it has only been at London Bridge since 2012. In fact, the view from The Shard is one of the most memorable and enjoyable experience I’ve ever had and I’m going to tell you why.

Fashion: Street Art Meets Chocolate. London OOTD

Bankside Fashion
Hi ladies how are you? You may have seen my #MOTDs over on Instagram and wondered why my ice cream consumption has shot up dramatically. Earlier this month I was very lucky to win a limited edition Holly Fulton for Magnum ice cream necklace over on Instagram. The necklace 'unlocks' the pleasure store in Covent Garden and allows the wearer to enjoy unlimited ice cream until mid-September (that's when the shop closes). Have you been to the shop yet? It's a very unique experience and the ice cream combinations are so good and very hard to resist. I will definitely need to go on a strict diet from September onwards.

Fashion: Covent Garden OOTD

Covent Garden fashion
Hi ladies, how are you? I'm back in London for the month and I'm seriously considering moving here permanently in September/October. As you know my partner Alex lives and works here and of course, I'd like to be where he is. So I've been applying for zillions of jobs and in between enjoying the city. My friend Izas has recently moved from Spain to Manchester and came down to London for a few days. She is an amazing photographer and she was so kind to shoot the pictures for today's outfit post. Hope you'll enjoy :)

Fashion: In A German Garden OOTD

Fashion Leggings
Hi ladies how are you? Leggings made a big revival last year with the introduction of a very quirky but unique pattern: kaleidoscope! You may remember these little toy tubes filled with pearls, coloured glass, gems and little sequins that would create the most stunning patterns when the tube was rotated. Inside was a lens of a prism that would change the pattern and sequence of elements permanently. Kaleidoscopes have fascinated me since my childhood and the creation of unique and fleeting patterns has carried me away into a world full of wonders and imagination for hours.

Fashion: Get, Set Gryffindor!

Harry Potter fashion post

Hi ladies, how are you? Yes, it is time for me to share my love for Harry Potter and I insist that I am a true Gryffindor at heart (though Pottermore would like to sort me into Slytherin). How do I know that I belong to the brave and fearless? Well like Harry I love adventures and breaking the rules. Unconditional love and friendship are the most important values in my life and I do not fear to fight for my dreams.

Fashion: What Can I Wear To Work?

Work Wear Office Fashion
Lately, I realised that I hadn’t had anything nice to wear for work, so a shopping spree with the focus on smart office clothes was inevitable. Usually, the first address that comes into my mind when I look for professional outfits is either Next or Oasis but I feel that both retailers have become extremely difficult to shop in the current sale season with most desired items already gone (unless you fancy queuing from 5am onwards on the first day of the sales). However, after some research on the British High Street an alternative was found and the question ‘What can I wear for work?’ won’t haunt me for a while.

Lifestyle: Summer In Germany. And What It Means To Me.

sunflower field

It is the middle of summer and I keep seeing fashion bloggers posting autumn outfits over on Twitter. No, no, no! That is sooo wrong. I know the UK tends to be rainy and colder than central Europe but I will not accept autumn fashion posts in summer. It is July and some of my British friends even told me the other day, that they’ve lit their fireplaces! Unbelievable when you're boiling in 35 degrees! Time for me to get involved and to hopefully warm up everyone with today’s post and bring back summer (virtually).
