Calligraphy love with the Lamy Joy white


Anzeige: About 10 years ago calligraphy was one of my favorite hobbies. In the last couple years, probably because of all the beautiful handwritten cards and letters that I saw on Pinterest, Insta and Co – the desire to try this again got stronger and stronger. Let’s be real, calligraphy is not just pretty fun but it also looks absolutely adorable – plus it is a personal and really neat idea for gifts. This year I also used my Lamy Joy White for preparing the advent calendars that I made (one for my best friend, one for my boyfriend and one for mummy). Each of them got 24 cute little tags for the date – and of course each of them was handwritten. By the way, I really love that you can change the pen’s feather tips so they can be adjusted depending on the size that you need.  Besides that I used my Lamy crystal inkwells – seriously, writing with them was truly fun, too! They are available in pretty many colors but for my DIYs I used the colors Benitoite and Amazonite and I loved them. I have also thought about employing a little bit of calligraphy for this year’s Christmas gifts – and I am absolutely convinced that I will stick to this new old hobby now! What do you guys think? Have you ever tried calligraphy? xx, Anna

Coffee Trends 2018/19: Absolute Origin Collection by Nescafé Dolce Gusto


Anzeige: As you might know, I really love to discover new trends, because they are always a little exciting and fun. Well… of course trends are not limited to fashion. We can find them in almost every field, even when it comes to coffee. Nescafé Dolce Gusto has lately launched a new ABSOLUTE ORIGIN collection which is available in their online shop, comprising two different espressos and one lungo. All of them are ORGANIC, which I really appreciate. Personally I love to buy organic food and it makes me happy to see that the awareness for this topic has risen. Let’s be real: ORGANIC is a wonderful trend!

Interior Monday: marble dreams come true with MYCS


Anzeige: It’s been quite a while since I gave you guys the last interior update. As you can see, a lot has changed in my living-room and I could not be happier about it. I had always wanted to give my home a little bit warmer, lighter touch and I feel like the lighter carpet, the new decoration and this dream of a Carrara marble have definitely made the change I wanted so badly.

Hotel Review Terme Di Saturnia Spa & Golf Resort


Anzeige: I just came back home from beautiful Italy and from of the most special hotels and spas I have been to so far: The Terme Di Saturnia Spa & Golf Resort. the  By the way, did you know that the word spa is a Latin shortcut (salus per aquam) meaning health by water? Another fun fact: Did you know that I always wanted to study Latin or Roman Myths and that I still regret that I haven’t done that? Well.. let’s get back to this very special place though, since I wanna share all my highlights with you…

Effortless w/ Braxfashion


Anzeige: There’s no season I love as much as spring (of course summer comes right afterwards in the ranking) but spring is just so beautiful with all these blooming cherry trees that you can spot everywhere in Aachen. Not to forget, I might also love this season so much because of my birthday… Well.. however, for spring I truly love to dress casually: stripes, denim, blue, black or white (that is basically my current favorite outfit mix right now). This pretty white jeans jacket by Brax* is slightly oversized which makes it just perfect in my opinion and it goes so well with a simple pair of jeans, shorts or a denim skirt. Definitely a staple piece! Now getting ready for a birthday weekend in Hamburg. Can’t wait! xx, Anna
