BITS & PIECES: hello September

September isn’t really amongst my favorites months, as we officially have to say good-bye to Summer, but it also holds a few special dates, such as the anniversary with my favorite mister or his birthday. And as of this year, September will always be the month that Kathi and I officially got the keys for our first office. Sometimes it still feels absolutely surreal that we get to call this our life. I am so proud of everything we have accomplished during the last year and so excited for everything the future has in store for us. So here’s a little insta-recap from the past few weeks:

BEAUTY TALK: fresh face

Recently I have been getting a lot of questions regarding my skin care. And while I am super lucky in terms of impurities and break-outs, my skin is still far from perfect. Due to the fact that I have eczema, I have super dry skin (it gets better during summer). Back in February I had an appointment with my dermatologist and she suggested trying a moisturizing urea lotion from the pharmacy. Now, admittedly it isn’t the prettiest bottle and it doesn’t smell wonderful (no scent at all actually) or sound very appealing, but it has worked wonders for my skin and gives it the perfect amount of necessary moisture. So currently, my skin care routine is very basic, but it seems to work well and I don’t plan on changing it anytime soon!

BITS & PIECES: on the go

This past week has been beyond busy – 4 days of filming with VICE and then straight to London to shoot for HALLHUBER. Even though I’ve gotten too little sleep and have a ton of emails to catch up on, I am incredibly happy about all the things that are currently happening. I now have 2 days at home to unpack, repack and get ready for Fashion Week in Berlin next week. But first: cuddles on the sofa with my favorite guy ♥ Wishing you all an amazing weekend!

FOR THE HOME: al fresco dining

While Mike has been gone on a boys’ trip to Ibiza for the past 5 days, I took the opportunity to get a few things from my personal to-do list done, including a little table for dining up on the deck. We’ve had a lounge area for the past 2 years, which comes with a “coffee table”, but it was simply too unpractical for eating. For this summer, I actually want us to be able to sit down at a table for some al fresco dining. So as soon as the boys were gone I headed to IKEA the next day and found the perfect little (folding) table that sits 4 – or maybe 6 if we all cuddle – and can easily be folded away when we’d rather use the space for dancing, tanning, … I am beyond happy with the outcome and can’t wait for lots of amazing meals outdoors.
