One year. Wow. It’s already been a whole year since I moved back to Hamburg, the city I love and where I feel at home. One year and so many things happened, so many changes, so many challenges, so many memories – great ones and not so great ones. It’s been a thrilling year, so I feel like writing a recap is obligatory to share my last year with you.
• Heatwave •
What. An. Amazing. Summer. It’s unbelievable how hot and sunny this year’s summer is! It’s just perfect, even though I wish it was just a little less hot cause I’m literally melting. Especially cause I had to work this week and it’s definitely too hot in a food truck. But it’s summer and I’m thankful that it’s so wonderful – everything is different, people are happy, we’re all in a very special mood, you can sit outside until you fall asleep on the balcony (happened to me, whoops), you can have ice cream all day long,… I mean, the last time I remember a summer like this, was probably 1995 or so. :) Childhood summers were always the greatest. And somehow, it feels like a childhood summer again.
Anyways, this heatwave calls for less clothes than usual, so first thing I want to say is: PLEASE don’t care about what other people could think or say – it’s way too hot to hide yourself in too much fabric. Just wear whatever the heck you want, be as naked as you feel like (not completely naked where it’s not allowed, tho, haha!) and always remember to give zero fucks if someone complains about your look. ;) You’ve got better things to do in this summer. Like swimming. Or having another ice cream. Or just trying not to drown in your own sweat. Period.
I still had no chance to wear this dress, but we already shot it so I can show you my perfect summer date night look. And I really hope to find a perfect male match for this outfit, so we can go out and have the greatest date ever! :)

My first two weeks in Hamburg are over and it’s time for my first actual #TimeToGrowUp post – because that’s what happened in these first 14 days in my favorite city. Let’s see, here’s what I’ve done so far:
• One Night in… Hamburg | 25hours HafenCity •

Here comes a new “One Night in…” post – and since I’m currently not living in Hamburg, I can show you one of the most amazing places to stay! Actually, it feels like a home away from home and it’s perfectly located in Hamburg, especially if you get to have a “room with a view” and can watch the Elbe and listen to the seagulls. ♥ During my last visit in Hamburg, I was lucky enough to stay at the → 25hours HafenCity for four nights and it was a blast. I stayed in one of their M Koje+ rooms, which means: medium sized room, perfect queensized bed (I slept like a baby!), view at the harbor (or the garden), air conditioning, free WiFi (yay!), rain shower (so good!), UE Boom Bluetooth speakers (which I used every morning while getting ready for the day!) and a few more extras you can choose in the hotel (like renting a Mini for free or a bike).
As usual – yeah, shame on me, I’m still not a brekkie person and always try to sleep a little more – I missed breakfast every day because I was very busy these days, but I had a peek and it looked amazing, so I’m 100% sure that if you’re someone who loves breakfast, you’ll be totally happy with their offers! Promise! On day one, I just had a late-night snack at their restaurant “Heimat Küche + Bar”, a homemade lemonade and a delicious dessert (“Geeister Kaiserschmarrn”) – totally recommendable.
Another plus is their location, because you can easily take the U4 which is right across the street or simply walk anywhere – the harbor and also the city are just a 10 minute walk away. So if you’re planning a city trip, this is a great place to stay and start your exploring. :) And if you like to stay in (maybe cause the weather is causing some problems – you never know in Hamburg…), there are some cool indoor specials at the 25hours HafenCity, like a table-top football, retro gaming stations and a nice sauna (also with a view)! And don’t forget to have a look at the most amazing room in this hotel, where you can listen to some records on vinyl. ♥
