#outfitpreview • These are only a few of my next looks up here. I can’t wait to show you all of them because they’re all just awesome. :) On Friday, you’ll get to see the one in the middle, my birthday dress. ;)
#foodie • Let’s talk about food. I’ve been trying a few new places for me here in Hamburg, like “Paledo” (Lehmweg 31A) and “MAD about juice” (Mühlenkamp 12), where I had açaí bowls. I really loved the granola at “Paledo”, but their “Classic Brazil” açaí tasted more like banana than açaí because they mix their base with banana and guaraná, and I think it’s too much banana. “MAD about juice” seems to use frozen açaí, which reminded me more of the Brazilian original. They also added different fruits, like banana, kiwi and goji berries, a bit of granola and chia seeds. My favorite!
Talking about chia seeds, I finally fell in love with them and started to create a few chia puddings – the one in my picture is with regular milk and a bit of cinnamon, topped with homemade apple sauce from my mother.
And for our anniversary on March 10, my husband and I picked up dinner at “Henssler at Home” – they still don’t deliver to us but their sushi is great, so we treated ourselves to some. If you want to know more about it, you can read my review → here. In this picture, you can see their “Creamy Tuna Tatare”, it’s utterly delicious!
#interview • I mentioned it a bit too late in my February recap, so many of you probably didn’t see it – I’ve been chosen as “Fashion Blogger of the Year 2015” by Curvaceous Redemption Magazine and → answered a few questions (page 50). I really like the interview and I also feel very honored to receive this title.
#purrrr • Just because the world needs to see my little boy from time to time. He’s already turning 9 this year. Time flies…
#fanart • It’s still crazy to see that people take the time to draw ME! It’s incredible and I feel very honored to be their inspiration for such amazing drawings. Please have a look at Martina’s → Instagram!
• Hamburg | Henssler at Home •
Henssler at Home
I really appreciate a great sushi delivery service. And unfortunately, to be honest, this one is not the one for me yet because we had to get the box ourselves. That’s because they’re located in the south and our home is not in their delivery area. Of course, takeaway is also a good option, since I actually prefer eating casually at home, watching my current favorite series and not having to look like I was ready for the red carpet (oh, the drama!), but this means I’m still searching for the sushi delivery service of my dreams.
By now, we’ve tried a lot but usually end up picking up our food ourselves because our favorite restaurants either have no delivery service (Sushi Lô) or it’s just way too expensive (Raw like Sushi) and in the end cheaper to just drive there and get it. Sounds pretty pragmatic but that’s us – living the casual way. ;)
Last year, we tried one of Steffen Henssler’s restaurants here in Hamburg – the sushi restaurant “Ono” (which actually needs a review up here, guess next time I’ll have to take a few pictures!). The second one is “Henssler & Henssler” and nearby the new delivery service “restaurant” (it’s not an actual restaurant, just a reception and the kitchen). I actually wanted to get my food driven up here to my door, but unfortunately they don’t serve all of Hamburg yet. Normally, we wouldn’t drive so far to get our sushi, but I was way too curious, so we made an exception. You can actually pre-order your food for takeaway on their website, but that didn’t work – so we made a call (and had to wait quite a bit – actually, the service is good but veeeery slow, so don’t try to hurry!) and ordered by phone. And this is what we got…
• Rio de Janeiro | Dinner at the FASANO al mare | FASANO Ipanema •
FASANO al mare | Hotel FASANO
I can’t even say how much I enjoyed going out for dinner in Rio. :) Those two luxurious dinners we had (find my post about our dinner at the “Mee” → here), were definitely two highlights of our vacation. Not just because it’s luxury, the food was simply delicious! And this is coming from someone who’s normally not very interested in Italian food (gosh, many people will think I’m crazy, right?). I don’t really care about pizza and pasta, but this time I wanted to give it a try, especially because the FASANO is known for its great food, including sea food. But if there’s something that I’m even less interested in, then it’s sea food (well, except for oysters, haha!) and cooked fish (but please give me anything raw – one day I’ll become a sushi myself!). So I chose a few classics from the Italian cuisine and I wasn’t disappointed. In fact, this was one of the best dinners I ever had and I can definitely recommend booking a table and enjoying dinner at the “FASANO al mare” – maybe even the same dishes I had. ;)
