A mule – not the most attractive name for a shoe, is it? And generally, I think the style matches the name in its (lack of) attractiveness. I’ve never been a fan: mules remind me of pictures of perfect retro housewives and boudoirs and Barbies. Or, if they a..
I am a huge fan of asparagus. In May, I could eat fresh asparagus (both green and white), new potatoes and butter on most days and be very happy (OK, maybe I would need some bacon, too). You know what’s even better than the good old asparagus, though? Wild a..
Usually I start my trend-led posts with something like: „I’ve always loved this or that and now, it suddenly happens to be in fashion. Hallelujah!“ Gingham is different. I don’t think I can truthfully claim to have been a life-long fan of the pattern: it has..
Last September, I did a post on The Ordinary skincare and my first impressions of the five products that I had bought. Since then, it’s become by far the most read article on my blog and the interest in the brand is clearly not going anywhere. And I get it. ..

It’s been pretty solidly established by now that I like to wear pink: after years of claiming that “I usually don’t like pink but this skirt/dress/lipstick/doughnut is rather nice” I had to admit that saying this twice a week possibly hints at something. So ..
Despite my undying love for scented candles, I have never been a huge fan of the Christmas versions – there is only so much pine and clove I can take. I do like the house to smell nice during holidays, however, and I also think a pretty candle works well as ..
