Which is why I’m advocating for more reds, blues and, yes, pink with this outfit.

Drinks in Berlin: Bombay Secret Art Garden

Sponsored by Bombay Sapphire

Getting through the six months of Berlin winter is a matter of meticulous planning – from preparing your winter wardrobe (all that wool) to writing a list of movies to watch, to buying concert tickets way in advance to have something to look forward to.

To ring in gin season, I joined Bombay Sapphire’s Secret Art Garden in cooperation with Junique last week to discover two more gin based drinks in the intense greens of a botanical garden.

Stil in: Berlin

– In collaboration with Farfetch –

Some of you might not even know, but this very blog was once filled with photos of people on the street, the phenomenon called street style that was all the rage back in 2010.

Like this extraordinary pair of sneakers I’m wearing in this prime example of a 2016 street style photo.
