I am pleased to announce that I am now officially an ambassador for non other than Swarovski, a brand that I truly cherish.

Do you remember when I visited the Jean Paul Gaultier exhibition back in September? Read the whole story and see many more pictures here.
A few weeks ago, I was invited to discover Dior´s very new version of its famous Dior Addict lipstick. Among with several other bloggers and journalists, we were given an inside view into Dior´s new campaign and the chance to try the relaunched lipstick ourselves.
Apple never ceases to amaze us. With not a single rumor in the time leading up to this reveal, Apple has just announced its collaboration with french maison Hermès: The Apple Watch Hermès. With three different models, available in five colors, the chic, yet functional watches will be available from October 5th in select stores worldwide.
Now that summer came to an abrupt halt here in Germany, the wanderlust got me. Looking for a nice autumn retreat I came across the beautiful Grace Hotel in Santorini. The Grace is carved from a clifftop overlooking the famous volcanic caldera. The infinity pool’s jagged outline echoes the zigzag paths that cross Santorini’s sheer terrain and the rooms are all front-facing to benefit from the spectacular caldera views. Service is also high-end, with a grand score of 9.6 at Booking.com.
After months of searching and waiting, I finally found the most coveted fashion item of the season! Who would have thought that something so simple would become so desirable?
Nowadays, Mansur Gavriel´s bucket bag ist said to be harder to come by than the famous Birkin bag by Hermès and the understated, casual design has become an instant classic.
Today´s blog entry is one that I am very excited about: Little Miss Sunshine and I are wearing matching outfits for the very first time! The pictures were taken while we were strolling through one of Cologne´s many parks, and as you can see, the weather was more than perfect :-)

Today I would like to give you a very pictorial overview of this summer´s fabulous new makeup collections:
It´s been a few weeks since my last post and I am truly sorry for this! Even though I always knew that being a mom would change my priorities forever, I never in a million years imagined how (sometimes) stressful and time consuming this new role can be. And while I enjoy and appreciate every moment with my little one, I also miss my old life and especially my blog.
Well, I will try to post more often and regularly from now on! Bear with me, my dear readers :-)
For today´s boho-inspired look I wore a white tunic from Zara, some grey skinny jeans and combined them with my current go-to-mom-shoes from Jimmy Choo. Yes, my high-heel-wearing-times seem to be over and I assembled quite the sneakers-collection. Didn´t see that one coming :-)

Jeans: 7 For All Mankind

Renowned financial analyst Ming-Chi Kuo revealed some interesting details about the iPhone 6S. Besides the usual speed and camera upgrades we will also get a new color option: Rose Gold. A full redesign of the iPhone is expected to be unveiled in 2016.
Starting this week, Chanel once again takes up summer residence at the private villa La Mistralée in Saint-Tropez. Each year House creates different décor settings, a showcase for its Ready-to-Wear, accessories, watches and fine jewellery collections. This season, the interior design tends towards clean lines and monochrome. Each room is painted in a single shade: navy blue, burgundy, pink nude and gold. Only a few walls are heightened with sections of floral wallpaper. The glass and chrome furniture in colours to match each room is modern and minimal.
Last week I spent some time in Maastricht, a wonderful city in the Netherlands which is close to my hometown Aachen. As we strolled the streets, we took these pictures that I wanted to show you today:

Today´s blog entry is a very baby-related one, but since my life is all about my little baby girl these days, I would like to share some insight on what products my little one and me favor:
It was just a matter of time, but now it is official: Chanel will increase the prices for its Handbags about 30% in Europe. The move is meant to streamline the pricing in Europe and China. Classics like the 11.12, 2.55 and Boy Bag will see the price increases on April 8, while the rest of Chanels product range will receive the new prices till the end of the year. But thats not the only bad news:
