I’m still waiting for the next Pale Blue Door appearance in Berlin. Did you go in 2012?
Once again the Londoners are the lucky ones. This menu is mouthwatering!
This smooth track reminds me of hot, “in-love-with-life” days at the pool/beach in Summer. So close your eyes and join the trip.
FRENCH EXPRESS is kind enough to give it away for free cause as they say:
“Tropical troubadours incessantly believe that one should never be without his or her’s fix of feel good, so this one’s on us. The crusade goes on, and with such, comes “Got Somebody” by Moon Boots.”
Because I say so! – going to Platoon Kunsthalle for the first time tomorrow and not just for a regular visit but to actually sell some of my clothes and jewellery. Of course all very exclusive pieces so you totally have to come and make a good deal.
- or just hang out and chat and listen to nice music.
Bonus: the amazing Sylwia van der Wonderland aka Vonda 7 is selling her stuff too. If not to buy something you should at least come to get her autograph cause she is gonna be BIG like the day after tomorrow.
Event info HERE.
And this is the nicest flea market soundtrack ever.
I had a meeting today in a part of West Berlin where I have never been before and was thrilled to discover this little gem of a shop full of American vintage pieces.
I fell a little bit in love with this red leather jacket but decided that I would be happier in the long run adding those €90 to my winter coat budget (was that too grown up?).
Anyways, pay Objects D’art a visit! Plenty to explore! (The blogpost title was the “slogan” on the store stamp).
Gervinusstraße 15, D-10629 Berlin
Mo. – Fr. 13-17.30
It’s October, the season is on!Sorry, Che, we missed it…

It’s incredible how we “in the western world” (keeping in mind all the options of “sharing and caring”) seem to just live in a bubble – where we don’t even fully comprehend or appreciate our luck to be born, raised and to live in this part of the world.
And I say “we” because I’m ignorant myself. Well, I do support the homeless people hanging in front of my nearby Rewe and I let Unicef withdraw money from my account every month. Small things like that. Because it’s easy and requires a minimum of involvement – so I have time to browse blogs, attend “see and be seen”-events or go out for dinners in nice restaurants with friends. It’s like Ally McBeal (if you remember that tv-show) once replied when she was asked “why are your problems so much bigger than everybody else’s?” “Because they’re mine”. Simple as that.
Well, the ambition to act must be the first step and then “action” will follow. And awareness plays an important role. So I’m glad that people like the ones behind Lakino make an effort to communicate stories we would otherwise not hear. Maybe then we will start to say “I must do something” instead of the passive version “Something must be done.”
So this Thursday I’m off to Lakino‘s Human Rights night for a short educational trip. The 5 day movie festival at Babylon in Mitte presents selected work relating to seven topics and a “best of” category. The experience might not instantly “break my bubble” but maybe it’ll expand it.

Trailer for one of the movies “The Invinsibles”.
I stop by Memory in Schwedterstraße now and then when I walk past within their opening hours and I always find something there I want.
The other day I gave in to my urge to spend møneys and bought a fine, fine pair of black Pollini pumps. €20. Who would think twice??
Stop by the next time you’re in the area! Unique mix of small furniture pieces, fashion, accessories and deco stuff.
Well, maybe there’s magic going on every day but I still think this is an event worth sharing: the Kitchensurfing Chef Fair, a four day event where twelve extraordinary chefs will create intimate dining experiences in private homes across Berlin.

Have a look on the website – sign up as a host or register to buy tickets once they launch!
I came to think of it after another lunch feast at Chaparro today since Raul who runs the place is one of the participating chefs.
