Lifestyle: An Afternoon At Ascot

An Afternoon At Ascot Ladbrokes

If you would ask me what I feel is typical ‘British’, I will most certainly name you all the clich├ęs: meeting the queen at least once in your life, enjoy fancy afternoon tea with cakes and sandwiches or a visit to the famous horse races. Thanks to Ladbrokes, I can now cross out two of these very ‘typical British things to do’ from my list. Alongside a handful of bloggers, I was invited to the QIPCO Champions Day*, the grand finale of horse racing at Ascot Racecourse. We were treated to a four-course meal followed by afternoon tea and in between enjoyed a taste of horse race gambling.

Lifestyle: Life Lately In London 4

Louis Vuitton Series 3 Exhibition London

After a week of severe eye-straining and permanent headaches, my body forced me to slow down my busy schedule and I had to 'relax' and 'stay away' from the screen for a few days. I still feel massively tired and burnt out a little so this weekend will be spent in the Forest of Dean and hopefully, I can refuel on my energies. But before I go into a social media and blogging free weekend, I'd like to give you a quick update on what's been happening this week in London.

1. Fashion: I visited the LV Series 3 exhibition

I spotted an advertisement for the Louis Vuitton Series 3 exhibition whilst on the tube and the opportunity to go and see it came up when Alex had an appointment in Covent Garden. Whilst he went there, I would visit the exhibition on The Strand. The venue for the exhibition was only a few meters away from the iconic Somerset House and easy to find. 

Entrance to the exhibition is free but upon arrival, you'll have to 'sing in' and leave your personal details with them. The exhibition itself started with a few rooms of artistic installations which would stir your imagination and you would feel where the designers got their creative vibes and inspiration from. I would describe the installations as futuristic and modern, as they would use different sounds, lightning effects and various screens to create the atmosphere. Like the Alexander McQueen Savage Beauty exhibition, the Series 3 was organised and run highly professional showcasing and worshipping fashion as art rather than everyday wear.

Fashion: Best Of Autumn Looks

Autumn Fashion Looks
London and life have been super busy lately. With this in mind and 90% of my wardrobe back in Germany, I haven’t had much time to work on a new ootd post. In addition, writer's block has struck me for the very first time in over a year and half of blogging which doesn’t make my writing life much easier. To get my motivation and style inspiration back, I scrolled through my archive and came across last year’s autumn posts. Some of them cover my favs looks and luckily the fashion hasn’t changed much this season. Fair to say it’s time to re-share my best autumn outfits.

Lifestyle: Happy Reunification Day Germany

Whilst many in the English-speaking world ‘celebrate’ Mean Girls Day today, my country commemorates the Fall of the Berlin Wall in 1989 – the event that caused the downfall of the GDR regime and the first step towards freedom for millions of people and the chance to form a united nation, which is, in my opinion, a more important event to celebrate on 3rd October. But guess what: I've nearly forgotten about it myself and I feel seriously ashamed of it that I haven’t shown the respect this important day deserves.

2015 has been the moment of wood. What started slowly in AW14/15 developed into a trend during the year and now, the fashion-sphere saw the stylish and sturdy material everywhere. May it be sunglasses with a wooden frame, distinctive coat buttons, handbags or decorative iPhone cases. You simply couldn't escape wood.

With this in mind, it comes as no surprise, that the versatile and long-lasting material has also conquered the world of watches. 'Wooden watches?' I can hear you ask, but yes, they do exist and one American brand has specialised in bringing the most stylish and elegant timepieces to our wrists: Jord Wood Watches.
