The biggest German beer party of all time is happening right now in Munich and I picked some online shops for you where you can get your hands on something more or less traditional. Short dirndl, long dirndl, dirndl shirt, leather pants, pretzel stickers for your forehead - there are no limitations to the Oktoberfest fun.

The weather in Germany right now is something everybody wants to run away from – it’s best to dream of your next summer holiday with a lot of that so called “sun” we didn’t see here in a while. Some nice, warm place, palm trees, a pool.. that’s all I wish for right now. My exams are coming up and that makes me want to escape even more. I put together two looks I would love to wear at the beach, the pool or while exploring southern cities. When it’s getting seriously hot and I want to walk a lot, my outfit should meet some requirements! Firstly, I need a light, breezy and short summer dress. I hate it when a tight dress sticks to my skin after some hours in the sun. And because exploring is all about walking a LOT I also need comfy sandals. I thought it would be cool to add my two favourite summer shades as splashes of colour next to these light summer dresses:
The best milk ever isn’t the one you tiredly pour over your cereal every morning, no. The best milk ever dangles on a string around my shoulder! Not very rich in nutrients but SO much cuter than your breakfast. I got it from “Moooh!!” (and honestly what better name could a company producing fashionable milk cartons have?!). Luckily, they didn’t limit themselves to cow-related products and are selling all sort of cute stuff. You can check it out here: Moooh.net
I paired the bag with my cute slushy slurping "slush puppy" tee from Asos for full beverage action.
Now is the best time to celebrate hippie vibes and festival inspired fashion! There's something that I hate and something that I love and both are surprisingly close together: Festival fashion and festival inspired fashion. Like, come on, you wouldn't really wear white sandals at a muddy music festival - you'd wear rubber boots. Old rubber boots. I look horrible when I go to music festivals: 3 hours of sleep and no shower for days don't really illuminate my complexion. What I do love though is bringing that hippie stuff to the streets. Fringes, brown suede leather, aztec prints, flowers... that's what I like to see in summer. I put together 3 happy hippie looks perfect for the city streets:
Glitter! Glitter everywhere! In this dress I felt like a little disco ball - except that disco balls usually keep their gleam to themselves and I was sharing it with everyone if I wanted to or not. I somehow got a thing for everything glittery. If it looks party-related, I like it. Some sequins, some glitter, some metallic? Send them to me! That kind of shopping habbit resulted in a wardrobe full of party stuff with a lack of normal everyday outfits. Gotta start wearing these things to university now, I guess.
I thought it would be fun to mix some Dr. Martens into the 80s soup and also some sport socks - don't ask why. I'm always trying to let someone else take the pictures outside but sometimes my couch isn't the worst setting for some homemade snaps.
Oh and by the way: You can now get 30% off everything from American Apparel but you gotta be fast: AA Shop (only today).
That the weather is getting hotter doesn’t mean sneaker-time is ever going to end in Berlin. Like organic tote bags, beanies and a bottle of Club Mate, cool sneakers are one of the main elements of Berlin’s streetstyle: You just can’t imagine the city without them. Even I, who didn’t like the “sporty look” for a long time, now have a huge sneaker collection and it’s getting only bigger. I picked 9 favourites you can all get here:
I already showed some pictures of Ko Phi Phi in my last post: It was absolutely wonderful there. I thought I’d show you a bit more. A friend and I went to the island while travelling through Thailand. I always thought I’d need a huge city to life somewhere but I somehow fell in love with Ko Phi Phi. They don’t even have bikes or cars, you just walk everywhere or take a water taxi (aka wonderfully oldschool motorboat). The people we met there go to pool/barbecue/ beach parties all day and work at the bars at night. It’s basically all about parties. Me and my friend worked in one of the bars just for fun and got paid in alcohol, haha! It’s also the place where they shot “The beach” – that’s kind of the vibe there. We went snorkeling, we went dancing, we went kayaking, we saw the fattest monkey the world has ever seen and we swam with glowing plankton at night. It’s hard to imagine a place closer to paradise and I’m already planning to visit it a bit longer next time – maybe several months.
Today, right from paradise, I’d like to show you a small but beautiful brand: Innecklace. They sent me the silver necklace I was wearing when I went to the sunset viewpoint on Ko Phi Phi in Thailand – which is one of the most wonderful spots on earth, by the way. Prices start at about $26 for completely customizable jewellery: I chose the sterling silver love bar necklace. You can let them engrave anything you like from names to numbers or whatsoever. I’ve always wanted a simple necklace with my mom’s birthday on it, so I didn’t think long about what to engrave. You can even choose the font! I really like the idea of creating something that personal and individual. As soon as I got the necklace I sent a picture to my mom, thinking she would say that it was very sweet. She told me I engraved the wrong birthday: Whoops! That’s typically me haha but well, I still wear the necklace a lot, because it goes so well with almost everything and nevertheless I think of my mom when I look at it.. and laugh a little.
Summer is finally here and if you’re anything like me you don’t want to spend the best time of the year inside. Through the fashion online shop GetTheLabel you now have the chance to win a Wigwam glamping weekend: 2 nights on a UK glamping site (yess glamping NOT plain camping, that’s for peasants) for you and up to 3 friends would surely make your summer even better.

I hope all of you already got your music festivals booked – for me that’s usually the only occasion to go camping. But maybe not this year, because I’m taking part as well, hehe. The best part is, you wouldn’t just win a glamping weekend, you’d also win a £75 GetTheLabel voucher AND this glamping survival box (and because it’s 2015 it comes with the indispensable selfie stick):
