Walking London: Chelsea & Battersea Park

fullsizeoutput_b0fAutumn is one of my favourite seasons – I love the change of colours, the crisp air and the cosy nights on my couch, with candles on and a good book in a hand. When weather is good, I am the first one to raise my hand for an autumn walk! To start off a new series of “Walking London”, I take you a beautiful walk around Chelsea and Battersea, the South West of London, including my favourite shops, restaurants and cafes on the way.  Continue reading

The West End

presentation1When I was 6 years old, my father took me to see the show Starlight Express at the West End in London. For the following 5 years, my dream job would be noted as “Musical Star” until I eventually realised that my dancing and singing skills were insufficient to fulfil that dream. Instead, my stage was theatre plays in various schools and holiday camps. And at one moment I lost count of how often I performed Andrew Lloyd Weber’s shows in my parents’ living room.

London Bucket List (#1)

London Bucket ListI still can’t believe that from next week I will call London home. Honestly, I can’t wait to move into our new flat, to discover the surrounding area and to explore this unbelievably attractive city.

It usually ends with me running around from A to B in the last week as I need to squeeze in that hike, museum and restaurant. This time though, the plan is different: here comes my first bucket list for things that I want to do in London until Christmas.  Continue reading

Let Go The Student Life

class photoI am just about to board my plane for Washington, DC! Not only that I am excited about spending my next 10 days there, but I am also looking forward to sharing my impressions with you afterwards. Recently, this blog suffered from a lack of pictures (thank you, dissertation!), but this will definitely change after my US trip. As this trip is also the start of a new chapter in my life, it’s time to look back at my 5 years of university life.  Continue reading

Office Wear Inspiration

Screen Shot 2016-08-10 at 11.21.07Underdressed? Overdressed? Everyone knows that problem, regardless the occasion. I am currently debating about what to wear in regards of my first job. I have only been to the office once and while guys mostly run around in suits, we girls have so much choice to play with. Yet, it must meet the office’s tenor. So for the past weeks, I have been rummaging through the internet to find some inspiration… and tomorrow is entirely dedicated to a shopping marathon in London.  Continue reading

5 Weekend Trips

Bordeaux, Marrakech, Liverpool,  Lisbon, BolognaAs the start date for my first job approaches fast (too fast, as I still have to finish my dissertation…), I also realise that I will soon be bound to a limited number of holidays throughout the year.

Paris, Rome, Barcelona… all cities that come first to your mind, but how about the 5 alternatives that I present you today?  Continue reading
