OUTFIT: i have a crush on so many things that aren't people.


[en] hello my dears! today i've got a new outfit post for you. this time featuring blue jeans shorts, my favourite summer shirt, a vintage cardigan out of my mothers wardrobe and the audi from le boy. he also shot the pictures. during our photo session we had loads of fun and i also began to feel a bit like a pirelli model XD

i have chosen the title because its the truth outspoken. in my teenage years i have been more interested in books than in people. it fortunately changed in the course of years, when i recognized that people are much more complex than i have thought before. yet still i'm very much in love with things non-human - books, the beauty of music, nature, works of art, photography, clothings and jewellery (also a work of art!) and cars ... theres so much beauty around and i want to absorb it all into my heart and my soul.

i hope you like our super fun session and photos!

FOOD LOVE: handmade nigiri and maki sushi with tuna, salmon, cucumber and pickled radish.



[en] hello my dears! today i want to show you some impressions of our very first selfmade sushi session. le boy and me love sushi very much, regardless of whether it is nigiri or maki sushi (and now also onigiri!). i have already made inari sushi before - those fried tofu bags filled with sushi rice (which are also eaten in korea where they are called yubuchobap, slightly different in shape and ingredients for the rice) but never tried maki and nigiri. maki sushi is also known in korea, where you have scrambled eggs inside, pan-fried sesame, cucumber, pickled radish and broad slices. so they are different to maki sushi in japanese cuisine where you mostly have solely one ingredient in the middle of your rice and nori slices. also they are very narrow and high. le boy and me chose traditional cucumber and pickled radish for our maki sushi. some rolls were made with one ingredient, others were combined. 
for our nigiri we chose traditional tuna and salmon filets which we bought just a few hours before at the fresh fish counter at scheck-in in baden-baden and with the rest of our fish filets we created sashimi slices, bedded upon white radish slices.

and OMG it was DE-LI-CIOUS! you gotta try it. it's not that difficult to create your own sushi plate. it is solely important that you choose extremely fresh fish filets for your nigiri (because it is to be eaten raw) and water your hands regularly because the rice is really, really sticky.

in this post i will also share a recipe for sushi rice, so you can create your own sushi in time! enjoy!

TRAVELLING LOVE: wissembourg, alsace - sweet french cliché.



[en] hello my dears! today i want to show you some impressions of our trip to wissembourg some days ago. wissembourg is a small town in the region alsace-lothringen - a beautiful little town with half-timbered houses with cast iron balconies, overly decorated with odorous flowers, beautiful cafés with many seatings outside, and small courses of a stream where children were playing in the sunrays filtered through the manyfold trees and nature all around and inside the town. it was beautiful. we were strolling around the town, taking photos of the beautiful gothic cathedral sts pierre et paul, buying postcards for the family and drinking amer bière (with that ah très délicieux picon orange liqueur) at restaurant du saumon and in a small kiosque le boy bought me a french vogue. i was wearing a white H&M dress and a cardigan which i have bought in baden-baden some weeks ago. i never want to look like a typical tourist but good as always, if not also better. you should always present your best self. le boy thinks so as well and i'm very happy about that. wissembourg is solely less than an hour of travel time away from our home and already a whole new world you can indulge in. it was like a little vacation, to stay in this pretty place and to hear my most beloved language, french, again. me and my family lived in paris, france, when i was 2 years old, and this might be the reason why i'm so much in love with the country, the food, the beverages, the people and the language and why it feels like home, every time i stay somewhere where i can hear and taste a tiny little bit of french life.

SHOOTING: luxury must be comfortable, otherwise it is not luxury.



[en] hello my dears! i've got some new shooting photos for you. this time i made a fashion shooting with mike from MikeLU Photography in the industrial estate in ludwigshafen - a nice location, somewhat a lost place, in combination with the neon yellow dress and flashy wedges. i have bought the dress second hand at kleiderkreisel.de some years ago and i still love it. it has already seen berlin and paris and i guess if me and le boy go on our well-deserved vacation it will travel with us again. how do you like the pictures and the location? which ones are your favourites?

SHOPPING LOVE: maxidresses, cropped tops and lace styles from dresslink.com



[en] hi peeps! today i want to show you a new onlinestore i have discovered recently: dresslink.com. it is a china based fashion shop featuring loads of asian fashion, especially korean styles, but also western style apparel and accessoires, many maxi dresses and all finds are absolute bargains. the shipping costs are evaluated according to the amount of clothings you want to purchase and the total weight of the package, due to internation customs. i have found a maxidress and a tulle skirt (a skirt which i have wanted to buy for such a long time) and i had to pay approx. $8 for insured shipping - so it doesn't cost the world. the descriptions and titles of the clothings should be neglected. or no, rather not, because they are actually very funny to read, especially in german.

some advices if you also want to shop at dresslink.com (or other asia based onlineshops): don't forget to order your favourite apparel pieces one or two sizes larger. but dresslink also offers a little help by always showing the actual western sizes in brackets behind the actual asian sizes. can you imagine i need to purchase an asian M or rather L? and i'm half-asian, it's such a sad story ... ok, well, just joking XD ... i'm happy with my body, actually ;)
also remember that mini dresses are really mini, they will end shortly below your thighs - maxi dresses are the best choice and every lace style is beautifully fabricated. i also love the tulle skirts (very fluffy and feminine), jumpsuits (especially the short styles) and denim shorts - the latter are the best bargain you can make at dresslink. 

my latest purchase will arrive soon and then you can stay tuned for some hot new outfit posts! :)
