There is a rebellious mood in fashion at the moment that has been absent for years. It’s not quite on the same level with 80s punk or the early bohemians, but something is going on. Celine has been replaced as the most desirable brand by Vetements, known for..
Despite the title, this is not a culinary post. Since last year, when I saw a pair of Baum und Pferdgarten walnut-coloured trousers, I’ve been thinking about the return of brown. I cannot find these trousers online any longer, though, so maybe I invented the..
I cannot really remember the time when I didn’t think about myself as a feminist. There certainly was one: I do recall reading The Second Sex and A Room of One’s Own in my early twenties and being almost shocked by the truths in them, so I cannot have been v..
I feel a bit uneasy about hauls – I’m absolutely fine with others writing and talking about the stuff they’ve bought, but not so sure I want to go there myself. It can feel like an orgy of consumption with little added value and I don’t want to be reminded t..

So, here we are again, back to the bodysuit. I shared most of my general musings on this item of clothing already last time, when introducing my world-changing bodysuit series. This means I don’t really have much to say this time around, except to briefly ex..
When you regularly read beauty blogs and follow scores of skincare nerds on Instagram, it can start feeling like everybody is as obsessed with the topic as you are. That most people have 8-step evening routines and spend hours debating what to order from Cul..
It’s been a while since I did a food post: not because I don’t cook, but because of the issue with the pictures. I’ve complained about it before – I don’t make things especially for the blog, so it’ll either be too dark to take photos once I’m done or there ..
