Urban exploring for Danish Elle

Elle Denmark asked me to share some tips for the upcoming Berlin Fashion Week. Sure!

Even if you don’t understand Danish the article links to German/English sites.
Hope you like!

Roadtrippin to Poznan.

I went on a road trip to Poznan, Poland last weekend. Maybe you didn’t know but I’m the official lead groupie of Sylwia van der Wonderland. Sort of.

She had a gig in her hometown so I and my two fellow groupies jumped in the car with her and did some multicultural exploring (multi-kulti since we were four nationalities).

Here are some of the pictures. See more on my Facebook page.
Conclusion? We want more road trips!

Polish imbiss meal. Köstlich!

Poznan loves pølser too.

Color me Friday

Thought it was time with a break from instagrammed pictures and add some real color to life.

Berlin on a watercolour canvas

I used to paint and sketch a lot while still in high school and though it’s been less and less in the last 10 years I was happy to hear from Mira O’Brien who told me about her watercolour workshop at the Berlin Drawing Room.

The Summer Watercolor Workshop the Berlin Landscape (June 28 – July 15) is about the landscape of Berlin as a subject for practising the subtle medium of watercolour; layering color and value, dry and wet brushstrokes, sketching with watercolor, and experimentation with new materials.

It will be on Sundays, at changing outdoor locations and in addition, the class will meet in the Berlin Drawing Room studio to focus on technique.

No experience required!

Nothing ventured, nothing gained.

Les Valseuses. One of my favorite new places in Berlin. Julien and Olivier from Themroc in Torstraße recently ventured into opening their own place.

Happy they did! Big fan of their French/Belgian creations and even better: it’s located 500 m from my place.

Join them on Facebook.

“Cause your friends don’t dance and if they don’t dance well they’re no friends of mine”

We can go when we want to
The night is young and so am I
And we can dress real neat from our hats to our feet
And surprise ’em with the victory cry
Say, we can act if want to
If we don’t nobody will
And you can act real rude and totally removed
And I can act like an imbecile

An Uduak Moment

I regularly post photos from when out and about on my Facebook Page. Noticed?

Follow/like/watch here.

“When her guests were awash with champagne and with gin, She was recklessly sober, as sharp as a pin.”

Went to “Tonight we Tanqueray” at Made My Day a few weeks back and was happy to see it wasn’t the usual Torstraße “Free drinks? – we’re in!” get-together. Groovy live music, süper-tasty cocktails by skilled barkeepers and a nice crowd of gin-loving people.

So here’s a post devoted to the upcoming event at Atlas Pancakes in X-Berg on Thursday June 14th. Let’s see if they stay clean for round two. I have faith. Though unfortunately they couldn’t organise the barkeeper from the video. That would have been a sure winner!

Beautiful!

“Gesundheitsfördende Gerichte” (and beverages full of e-numbers).

As mentioned in my “Bike ride der Kulturen” post I made a spontaneous stop at Korea Haus last Sunday.

My friend Ami already went (she ditched our date) but her feedback (that I respect since she’s been travelling in Korea and is as passionate an eater as I am) came out less positive. Not “bad” it just wasn’t the best Korean she’s had had in Berlin – she mentioned another place but of course I forgot the name: Ami what was it?

– cause I’m pretty curios cause I thought the food was YUMMY! I had the tofu teriyaki if anyone is interested. And some sort of cinnamon/ginger/kaki drink from a can. Sure it’s full of e-numbers but it tasted devine!

“Bikeride der Kulturen” continued.

Thanks for your patience, here’s the 2nd round of photos.

Alte Manier…wonder what this place is up to at night.

Allotment garden in Wedding. When in a sentimental mood, I dream of one.

The Wedding kind of fountain. Here’s what they can afford in Mitte.

Finally made it to Korea Hause – more pictures soon!

I was too full for desert but randomly passed by a Turkish children’s festival.

In Danish you say “green is good for the eyes”

What to do (or at least what I did) in London. Part II.

For my loyal readers here’s my map London Baby! with the locations I pinned out before I went. I actually managed to visit quite a lot while others stay on the list for next time.

Have your nails done at Hair by Fairy in Soho.

This is not really something to see but just noticed animals everywhere in London too.

Explore the north Shoreditch and Dalston.

Eat dinner at Naamaste Kitchen. Best modern Indian food I’ve EVER had.

Have coffee at Fabric 548 on Kingsland Road. Dj playing in the morning and they serve a pretty decent soy cappuccino.

… and remember to give way and take it slow.
