Guide: Fair Fashion in Berlin

– Supported by the German federal ministry for economic cooperation and development –

Fair Fashion is something we like to think doesn’t have to be explained anymore. We all know that the main high and fast fashion brands’ production systems do tremendous, often irretrievable harm to the environment, and are based on the abuse and exploitation of workers in the producing countries, don’t we? However, was that on your mind when you paid a very low price for fast fashion items on your last shopping spree? Probably – maybe even understandably – not. Raising awareness for the plights of the majority of seamstresses working in unbearable conditions to create the trendy garments we all like to show-off on the streets is what a new campaign of the German federal ministry for economic cooperation and development is all about: the story of Vero & Selvie puts one of the workers in the spotlight, and her portrait on the t-shirt I’m wearing on the above photo.

Dogs in Berlin: Shops

There’s no reason to deny it: my mixed breed Nico is a spoiled dog. I adopted her from an Italian shelter, where she lived for 1,5 years after being rescued from a flood at the age of one. So why shouldn’t she be spoiled? She has multiple beds, cushions and blankets (in the office, at home, in the car), eats fine raw food, and I always have an assortment of snacks ready. Spoiling her is one of my favorite things, not because she needs it, but deserves it for being the best dog ever. Where do I get all that treats for her, you ask? At my favorite shops for dogs in Berlin! This is the third part of my series on dogs, part one tackled the basics of dog owning in Berlin, and part two suggested loads of places to have fun with your pup.

Seriously: 10 New Food Places You Have To Try This Summer

On this particularly pretty July day, I’m sharing with you a new list of places I wanna try in the next weeks, when finally summer is rolling in again. Some exciting locations opened their doors in the past weeks, manifesting Berlin’s spot on the international list of culinary destinations – from long awaited ice cream parlors, to even more local and seasonal dishes, Berlin is by now offering something for almost all flavor profiles. As usual, I’ve not eaten at these places yet, but what I know of them is promising enough to put them on my list. If you want more or just make sure you checked all on the previous lists, here’s the spring edition. Can’t wait to hear your reviews and thoughts, and maybe even loads more recommendations? Until then, happy eating!

Escape: Eating in Tokyo

It’s so weird to write this post, I certainly didn’t plan for it, I didn’t even wanna do it. But some people asked me to. I don’t feel entirely confident to actually list places to eat at in Tokyo, and I can only justify this list by being transparent about my sources. Anyhow, I had a great time eating at all of these, so you will very likely enjoy them as well. Enough with the excuses, here’s a list where to eat in Tokyo.

Guide: Dine out on a Monday Night

Sadly, it can be hard to dine out on a Monday night in Berlin. I know that because I’ve tried several times and found many of my favorites to be closed.Of course, there are loads of imbiss-y places that are there for us, but it’s certainly harder to find a nice place to sit down and enjoy table-service. Which is why I made this nifty little guide, researching which restaurants that I liked were actually open. It’s not that many! Here to help:
