#outfitpreview • Beach looks have become a little obsession – I really hope you’re not getting bored, as there’s still more to come. We’ve been exploring Hamburg a lot these days, looking for places that make you think “Who needs a vacation if there are such beautiful places in Hamburg?” – and we found some. :) So there are some beachy looks coming up, but of course I won’t let you down, there are some “normal” outfits too! ;)

#curvyfair • Long story short: it was waaaay too hot in Berlin, but I enjoyed my day at the Curvy fair. The day started with a little meeting with Givenchy and Kenzo on the Dom Perignon house boat somewhere in Berlin, where I got to see the brands’ novelties, and went on with the fair in the middle of the city at the Orangerie of Schloss Charlottenburg. A great location but unfortunately not well air-conditioned. Still, I got to find a few favorites, including this coat of Zizzi’s Black Label collection, the new Anna Scholz collection for sheego (can’t wait to shoot my lookbook for you!), and of course: many lovely blogger colleagues and friends – it’s always good to see the girls! Especially while having dinner to celebrate their blogger collection for Studio Untold! ;)

#shooting • On Friday, I had a great shooting with my talented friend → Tine – subtle sexiness plus lots of Agent Provocateur (contradiction, huh?). All-natural make-up (almost nothing, except for a little bit of “Crema Nuda”, some dabs of concealer, mascara and glossy lip balm) and analog photography – can’t wait to see the results and crossing my fingers that everything worked well! ;)

#goodtimes • I’m very happy about some recent features of my blog on → Glamour and → Wunderweib – it’s always so great to see yourself in all those magazines you always read before blogging and then you’re in there as if it were no big deal. Love it!
Also, last Friday, the winner of my make-up session with Urban Decay was here to redeem her prize and she got a great make-up look. Bright pink lips and red hair? Awesome!
Another lovely surprise and something that makes me speechless every time: there’s another amazing piece of fan art (kind of feel weird to call it “fan” art but well, that’s what it is, right?)! This time by → farbenzirkus on Instagram. Isn’t this incredibly good?

Spending some time at the beach has become my favorite activity in summer (before we moved to Hamburg, we didn’t have beaches around, so this is pretty new for me!). I really enjoy the sand between my tippy-toes, the cold water on my legs and the sun on my skin while wearing my bikinis and swimsuits. Also, beachwear is something very cool and today’s beach dress is definitely the most beautiful one I own. :)

I love the sheer parts that let my bikini shine through, the loose cut, the flared sleeves and the lace-up cleavage.

We shot these pictures at the Finkenriek beach, it’s a small one next to a railway line, that’s why this beach is probably not one of Hamburg’s favorites – it’s pretty loud when a train goes by. Anyways, I don’t really care. A beach is a beach and there’s bamboo, sand and refreshing water (but please don’t try to swim there – the current is pretty bad and dangerous!), so: enjoy! :)

If there’s a brand on which I’d like to spend all my money, it’s Dolce & Gabbana. Their clothes (especially the dresses!) are pure perfection. Unfortunately, most of them are a little too small (shame on Italian sizing! ;)), so all I can do is buy their sunglasses (check!), their bags (still swooning over the “Sicily” with the blue and white pottery tile print), their shoes (check!) and their beauty products, including perfumes.

“Light Blue” is Dolce & Gabbana’s classic and from time to time there are some limited editions of the fragrance. This summer, Dolce & Gabbana takes us on a trip to the Aeolian Islands, the bays of Sicily – Salina and Lipari.

“Sunset in Salina” is the feminine version of “Light Blue”; for men, we’ll go →  “Swimming in Lipari”. :) Today, I want to talk about the female fragrance.

So you’ve already seen me wear lots of jumpsuits, but this is the first time I wore a short one. That whole thigh chafing problem doesn’t make it easy to wear shorts, as it makes the fabric keep moving up the thighs while walking. The shorts have to be long enough to stay put. I still haven’t found a trick to avoid this problem (any ideas?), that’s why I haven’t worn shorts for a long time, unless they were almost knee-length.

Fortunately, I found this short jumpsuit from H&M in EU size 46 (unfortunately only available online in this size), which can easily be worn without any chafing problems. The loose cut is great for summer and is a great choice for going to the beach – just wear your bikini underneath and you’re good to go (I was sitting next to a canal and very tempted to jump into the water while shooting!)! :)
