The Tricity of Gdansk, Sopot and Gdynia – Poland’s Most Beautiful Side

The tricity at the Polish Baltic Sea consists of Gdansk, Sopot and Gdynia and has honestly knocked me down with its flair. No wonder that this region of Poland is a real tourist magnet. Because every city enchants in its own way. The three cities are situated right next to each other and are connected by their unique location on Gdansk Bay. Nowhere else have I found three so completely different cities in one place that impressed me so much. And that even in the cold winter!

Lugano – pearl of Switzerland

Friends of ours have a holiday home in Lugano with a view on the lake. They have been inviting us for a while and every time I saw pictures of the place I was really taken with it. This summer we finally went. All in all it took us 10 hours to drive there with a stop over night near Bodensee lake. The last part of the way through the so called Heide-country was really pictorial.

Pure romance at Fleesensee palace

A wellness weekend on the beautiful Fleesensee Palace just for ourselves! My husband and I have been awaiting this time out eagerly. Two and a half days just for ourselves, without the children, in a lovely wellness hotel. Just an hour and a half by car away from Berlin. This is so uncommon that we were really excited!

Long car journeys with children: easy with these tips!

Long car journeys with children can be a real adventure! It was an experiment for us as a family to drive down to Austria and Croatia for our vacation instead of taking a plane as we usually would have done. Ahead of us was a real long car journey. But despite the heat and the traffic jams I would do it any time again because there are a few tricks to bypass the time.

Wind tunnel flying fit the the saying that you have probable all heard before: only flying is better! I wanted to try that out. Almost weightless as a so called body flyer!

Family idyl Kärnten Austria – active holidays with kids

I am a total sunaddict so therefore we’ve always spent our family summer vacation at the sea. But this year something inside of me longed for the mountains. Maybe I had watched to many episodes of “a castle at the Wörtherlake” with my grandma. That’s exactly where I wanted to go besides I had heard so many positive things about this region. And my expectations were more than fulfilled. The mixture of the lake and the surrounding mountains were the perfect backdrop for one of the most wonderful family holidays we have ever spend.

Brocat princess – a royal look for fall

Brocat fabrics were looked at being prissy for a long time, but this fall it is THE fabric trend which gives day to day looks a royal touch. Brocat is a heavy silk fabric which used to be for royals only! This season, though, it celebrates its royal comeback. I composed a few outfits for you at the Showroom my favourite fashion boutique in Berlin.

1. Brocat – dressed up

More is more – at least concerning my first outfit which I would chose for an afterwork party. I combined the brocat skirt by Marc Cain with a bouclé top. That looses it up a little and picks up the current mixed patterns trend. The turtle neck with the collar variation makes it youthful and up to date. Besides sling pumps and a clutch (with a gold clip) in the same color as the skirt. All I need now to be a real brocat princess is a coronet! All pieces by Marc Cain.

2. Brocat – dressed down

I would go to the office in this combination especially as the boots from Marc Cain ttps://www.marc-cain.com/ are supercomfy. This makes brocat suitable for daily use! With the skirt goes a comfy cashmere turtle neck and a long black coat by Strenesse. The solid boots round out the picture and grant a glamourous entry for the skirt. Tada!

If you want to style brocat for the street you should chose only one brocat piece at a time and add plain clothes to it! The fabric itself is swanky enough. Plus the skirt can be combined with all kinds of other pieces. Which makes it from now on my favourite must-have!
