Shop in Berlin: Brutto Gusto

“When spring came, even the false spring, there were no problems except where to be happiest.” I read these words on my way to Brutto Gusto the other day, and as soon as I entered the flower shop in Mitte, I immediately knew what Hemingway meant. With spring in full bloom and fresh flowers popping up everywhere, I’m feeling the need to surround myself as much as possible with the first signs of spring. Whether you want to capture the city’s awakening spirit or fill your home with fresh flowers—you’ll find it at Brutto Gusto.

Links in Berlin: All hail!

We saw a quite impressive amount of hail going down this week, which might have been exactly what Florian meant when he told me that Berlin’s gonna pay for all those very beautiful but very early spring days we enjoyed this March. Anyhow, April is upon us and until now there’s no weather app telling us glory is vanishing (19 degrees tmrw, again!). Before you go out and frolic, here are the best links of the week:

Leaving Berlin: Achtland

I love Berlin fashion, you know that. So you might be able to imagine how my little fashion-heart almost broke to pieces when Thomas and Oliver, the genius minds behind ACHTLAND, told me they’re leaving Berlin and are going back to London. Of course I instantly knew that the business they’re building can only benefit from that step, still, sad patriotic emotions swept over me. I couldn’t help but ask them: WHY!?

Revisited: Street Food Thursday

It’s almost a year ago since the best foodie-invention since the Thai Market came to our lovely city and we’ve been enthusiastic fans of the glorious Street Food Thursday at Markthalle IX ever since. One of its qualities is the ever changing list of vendors. While starting with (and still often featuring) foodie stars like Fräulein Kimchi or Glücksmädchen; many new favorites have been added. It was about time to show you some (new) highlights.
