You might have already seen it: this was my happy place last week in beautiful, snowy Vienna. I enjoyed our stay at the Kempinski Palais Hansen Vienna to the fullest, this hotel is not just absolutely stunning, everybody treated us so friendly and I felt at home immediately. You might have heard of the Kempinski hotel chain, they’re pretty small with around 70 hotels in over 30 countries, and you’ll see – in their hotels the focus is on each detail. Everything was perfect, from the breakfast to the spa. But I really want to share my personal highlights with you guys, here they are!

Without many words, I’m sharing some impressions from my latest journey to Paris. I’ve got so much love for this amazing city! Ohhh, and not to forget I have to lose a few words about my five personal must-do’s when in Paris, since they are things I always do when I’m there. They get me that true Parisian feeling, as if I was really living there and they make me feel the spirit of this uber beautiful, magical city. Here they are: 1. Enjoy a morning from a typical Parisian balcony. They are the prettiest! And the view is simply amazing! I was so in love with ours at the Grand Pigalle. 2. Get up early to see places such as Pont Alexandre. You’ll be surprised how beautiful they are without all the crowds. Silent moments in Paris really make you feel the spirit of this city. 3. SPLURGE at Ladurée. They have the world’s best macarons, the best tea and the cutest cakes. I never go to Paris without going there at least once. 4. Visiting quarters like Le Marais. It’s for sure my favorite, they have all these super beautiful doors wherever you look! 5. Play the tourist: Of course you can’t go to Paris without visting the Eiffel Tour, Pont Neuf, the Colonnes De Buren Magistral or Le Jardin Du Luxembourg! What are your must-do’s when you’re in Paris? xx, Anna

For today’s post I teamed up with Lacoste, wearing the new beautiful Lacoste Valencia watch. As I told you some time ago, time management is one of my biggest issues in this job. It’s something I really struggle with from time to time. So let’s talk heart to heart: I do not have a regular daily work life and I truly miss it. When I travel, everything is fine. Getting up in the morning is the easiest thing ever, I literally jump out of bed, I have lots of motivarion to get work done and I love it. Well.. but there are also those days, where I’m only doing office stuff and bureaucracy. Of course you can’t have everything and tasks simply needs to be accomplished, so I had to figure out some time management strategies that help me deal with the situation in terms of finding motivation and getting things done. Here are my personal motivational tips that are highly effective to get myself going again!

Kisses from my favorite city (besides Rome): Pariiii. There’s hardly any other city making me jump out of bed every morning as Paris does. We took these pictures in the morning and I truly love the spirit of this city when it’s not so crowded with all the tourists, who aren’t up this early. Yes, Paris has my heart. And so do these overknee boots… As you might have figured, since they played a major role in the last couple posts (sorry, guys). Currently I am already looking for my next pair. Maybe black ones by Stuart Weitzman? They would be the perfect fall companion. As you can see, I am still madly in love with this coat by Brax fashion. The long beige sweater, also by Brax, is also one of the newer additions to my closet and I simply adore it! Kisses from Paris! xx, Anna

Obviously I’m not very patient when it comes to birthday presents, because I really couldn’t wait until 5th May to wear these Saint Laurent babies. I’m pretty sure they will be the perfect spring companions! Actually I was looking for the perfect pair for ages. I couldn’t find anything though, neither in Paris, nor in Berlin. Finally I gave up searching for espadrilles and last week I suddenly spotted these babes at Mytheresa online. Funny how the search always ends when you stop looking. And aren’t they matching my new Beliya Melody bag * so perfectly? Talking about this pretty bag, I definitely have to mention the brand’s amazing philosophy! For every item purchased they donate money to a charity project, for example for kids’school fees, their lunch at school, their school uniform, their books or other charity projects. Purchasing a Melody bag, you automatically ensure that a child in developing countries has a school uniform for a whole year. I truly love this idea!

By now, most of you probably know that I’m rather the one to wear black 24/7, since it always makes me feel well dressed. Brown is one of the colors I used to avoid genuinely – and I cannot remember more than 5 occasions in my whole life, where I wore white. Well, that might make you wonder what made me choose this look? For last week in Berlin I wanted something I felt truly comfortable with. It didn’t have to be extra fancy or super stylish, but it had to fit my style. Whenever I try on new looks, you can immediately see in my face, whether I feel comfortable or not. Surprisingly, another color combination but black and black made me get that jolly glow (can you tell by my happy face?)…

Weihnachten steht ins Haus – und nur noch ungefähr drei Wochen, bis wir die drei W’s auf der Weihnachtscheckliste abhaken können sollten: Weihnachtsstimmung, Weihnachtsgeschenke, Weihnachtsoutfit. Für letzteres habe ich mich am Donnerstag auf den Weg ins Designer Outlet Roermond gemacht und meinen Lieblingslook für die Weihnachtsfeiertage geshoppt. Ich hatte perfektes Timing: genau seit Donnerstag hat das Outlet Sale – und ich habe bei Sandro, Furla & Co wirklich mega Schnäppchen geschossen…
