Anzeige/Werbung: There are two things in this world I LOVE to write and read. The first one is poetry (call me a freak, but I am a huge fan of modern poetry), the second one is Christmas and Holiday cards. I love to show and tell people that are important to me that I miss them, think of them or simply that I appreciate and love them: my friends and family in the US but also good friends and family here in Germany. Cause… let’s be real doesn’t a gift mean a lot more when you give it with a letter or a card? When you tell somebody what they mean to you, how much you love and miss them and especially on those special days like Christmas, doesn’t that make it way more special?
„I don’t know what they are called, the spaces between seconds — but I think of you always in those intervals“.
Giving gifts is not about the gift itself. We should not forget about that. It is about being thoughtful, creative, caring and showing the ones we love what they mean to us. It’s about saying thank you, about showing love and appreciation and about making them happy. But with a beautiful hand written card or letter every gift is way more special immediately, right?
„There’s something to be said for people who genuinely make you feel safer. Even if they’re far away from you, their existence is so calming and beautiful, that it makes everything seem better somehow.“ – Sophia Elizabeth De Morgan.

Winter’s here. Days are getting shorter, it is getting colder – and this is clearly not the best about this season. It’s up to you: you can let this season pass and do the necessary like buying some presents for the 24th or can dive into it completely. Wear fuzzy socks, drink hot chocolate, listen to crazy Christmas music until you can’t stand it anymore, make cookies, read, be with your favorite people and have a crazily good time. So here is what you really should not miss out on…

Actually I had always wanted to travel to Sylt but eventually it was my very first time to visit the island. What shall I say? I had expected it to be a nice island, but kind of overrated. However, this island and this hotel exceeded my expectations by far. Yes, Sylt blew my mind and the Landhaus Severin*s Morsum Kliff turned out to be one of the most beautiful places I have seen so far. I had an unforgettable time with wonderful people but before I start telling you about everything that I loved, I wanted to share some facts about it though… The Landhaus Severin*s Morsum Kliff is located in the east of Sylt, directly on the shore – it is pretty small, with only 13 rooms, a restaurant with a terrace, a bar and a nice spa area. For everyone who wants to relax and enjoy Sylt’s nature, it is the ideal place, since one can either go walking, riding bikes or relaxing at the spa.

Honestly, here is one thing I really like about fall: the opportunity of wearing colorful sweaters and big knit, just like this adorable red pullover by Brax Fashion that I wore on a super lovely fall day in Milan last week. By the way, my favorite green sweater which got so much love on Instagram is also from Brax Fashion (and it’s incredibly soft). Those colorful big pullovers are the perfect key pieces to a cozy yet stylish fall outfit and your look won’t need much besides that! Brax Fashion’s new campaign comprises a line which really made me feel addressed: FEEL GOOD. Feeling good in an outfit is way more important than looking stylish or being chic but if your look can get you both at the same time, it’s literally the jackpot. This outfit gave me exactly this. Comfortable, yet elegant pants (by Brax as well), my statement sweater, my favorite blazer and a simple pair of white sneakers and I felt more than good all day long.

This is my third time in Milan, each time I stayed for a couple days, sometimes even for almost a week, which is kind of quite long for a city trip but I really love this one a lot. Now it’s time to draw a really good resumé: where to find the best food, the best pasta, ice cream or sushi, the prettiest place to eat, which sights are worth being seen, how to avoid lines at sights and attractions, where to shop… This time in Milan was simply insane. My best friend and I, eating, going out – having the time of our lives in Milan.

I could hardly be any happier. Spending some quality time in Milan with my better half. I could hardly ask for anything more: somebody always being by your side, supporting you whenever it’s possible, someone you can laugh so hard with that it hurts, somebody you can trust completely and you can tell everything. Yes, I am talking about my best friend. This woman understands me without words, she can make me laugh within seconds and she is always completely honest with me (even if it’s not what I wanna hear). I’m the same with her (even if it’s not what she wants to hear). Being there for each other, taking care of each other, dreaming about our future with each other – walking through life side by side is what this friendship truly taught me. The man who is gonna get married to her one day is gonna be a really lucky one.

Heart to heart: I confess that I desperately love to shop designer stuff, either bags, clothes or shoes – everything! At the age of 17 I bought my first designer purse and I still remember how excited I was (it was a Mulberry Lily and today I still love wearing it). Shortly after I bought my Givenchy Antigona, which is still my favorite purse ever. This was my beginning of investing in designer stuff, because I love to buy timeless classics, that you will still like in some years. BUT – buying designer items for less and making good bargains is even better.
So I am pretty excited to announce that you can find my personal selection of designer items and my own little shop at BEST SECRET. In case that you don’t know their shop yet… Best Secret is an exclusive online platform where you can shop brands for a lot less and they even have really cool designer brands (e.g. Valentino, Versace, MaxMara, Escada, Tommy Hilfiger, Chloé, Balenciaga, Missoni, Adidas, Karl Lagerfeld and many more).
So… yes. You can find and shop my personal favorites in my personal BEST SECRET ONLINE SHOP! Of course I am so excited to hear what you guys think! xx, Anna
For signing up at BEST SECRET you only need an invitation and here is yours. By the way, it’s completely free!
