EVENT: #SeminakedInRed


To celebrate the end the season, Desigual has put together another round of their legendary “seminaked” party – this time under the motto of #SeminakedInRed and right here in Vienna! Lots of red, but just a tiny bit of fabric! 

The Spanish fashion label Desigual will be giving away 100 outfits just after Christmas, and team TDD (aka Kathi and myself) will be there to join the fun and celebrate with you guys. If you feel like a new outfit – for free, of course – be sure to show up at the Desigual store on Mariahilfestrasse 57-59 here in Vienna on December 27th at 9am (or better yet, 8:30am to make sure you’re part of the first 100). The clue: You have to show up in as little fabric as possible (aka bikinis, underwear, … you get the point) and LOTS of red accessories. We’ll be ready for you & can’t wait to see some of you in person!

One of the things I love most about being a blogger, is being able to discover new products, services or places and then getting to share them with you guys. Yesterday, I spent the morning with FREYWILLE at their boutique (Stephansplatz 5, 1010 Vienna) to find out a bit more about their 4 new “Les Parfums”. As you guys know, I have a fairly picky nose when it comes to perfumes, but yesterday’s experience wasn’t just perfume – it was so many beautiful scents that came together to form a feminine accessory, that – just like jewelry – is an extension of our personal style and taste. Unlike other perfumes, the four ‚Eaux des Parfum‘ by FREYWILLE (which btw took 3 years of careful research and expert development) made me feel like I was sticking my nose into a bag filled with real items. I was able to actually smell that mandarin, green tea, rose or iris. It is hard to describe in words, but it felt much more “real” and less perfume that what I am used to. Not to mention the absolutely perfect packaging with the black bow! I kind of want a bottle just to display on my coffee table next to my candles and fresh flowers!
My personal favorite? For sure the SPHINX Magique with a hint of fresh citrus, and being the lightest of the four. Surprisingly, however, I was also drawn to the SPHINX Rose, where I could sense the rose, but also something warm like vanilla and something woody like amber.

“Alles Walzer!” – Opera Ball Preview

Aside from the beautiful architecture and coffee culture (including the delicious Sacher Torte), Vienna is also known for its famous Opera Ball, which attracts people from all around the world every Winter. Personally, I’ve been wanting to go since I moved to Vienna and have followed the magical evening via TV for the past few years… I am sure you guys can guess where I am going with this (more to come soon)! Now, I think it is safe to say that for all the girls attending – especially the debutants - the hardest part is finding THE perfect dress. Luckily, this year Peek & Cloppenburg is proud partner of the Opera Ball and they have teamed up with designer Atil Kutoglu for the special “Alles Walzer” collection of 3 stunning dresses. Back in October I was invited to the press preview and literally wanted to take home all 3 dresses with me. Inspired by his three favorite cities (Paris, Istanbul & New York) Atil Kutoglu created gowns that I would literally wear to my wedding (if there was such a thing) in a heart beat! They will be available exclusively at P&C Kärntner Straße here in Vienna starting December 13th and honestly, I am a little disappointed that only the debutants get to wear white because the “New York” dress with the bow is a dream of a ball gown, right?

VIENNA: big smoke

If you love summertime, a good BBQ and a great location, then I have THE place for you: Big Smoke! Mike and I always love to try new restaurants and places around town, and last Sunday we finally made it to the new BBQ place down by the danube canal. Personally, I have a weakness for any restaurant that creates an image around the food they serve, I love it when it becomes an experience! Big Smoke has an amazing outdoor location, doesn’t take reservations (waiting times can be up to an hour to get a table) and is seriously cool in terms of the look and feel. Don’t even get me started on the food … Probably not the best place if your vegetarian, but for everyone else it is a dream come true – just make sure you’re not currently on a diet. You can order super tender ribs (which Mike did) or the juciest and most delicious pulled pork ever (my choice), and of course a bunch of other things. The side-dishes are just as good as the main dishes, and I can warmly recommend the corn, cole slaw and bbq-beans (see the whole menu HERE). Next time you’re craving a good BBQ, head on over to the guys at Big Smoke, because they most definitely know what they’re doing!
