#OOTD : Accessories Selfie

Today I was in the Mood for a Black & White Accessories Look. So I packed my Chanel, put on my patent black broques and my favourite sunnies and off I went.

Shoes // Lanvin
Bag // Chanel
Sunnies // House of Harlow
Scarf // Codello

Eyes wide open

There are so many beautiful things out there, you just have to open your eyes and search for them. Yesterday I walked through South Kensington and spotted this single lovely pink rose which brightened up my day. You can find beauty everywhere even at unexpected places like a construction site.

Monday Morning Power Bowl

The only thing that gets me going in the morning, other than coffee, are vitamins. Lots of them to be precise. My Power Bowl that you see here consists of Vanilla Yoghurt topped with Chia Pudding and lots of fruits like Banana, Passion Fruit, Grapes and Blackberries. It is the perfect breakfast to start the day. Have you tried Chia Pudding before? I simply cannot live without it. My favourite version is Chia Seeds with coconut milk. I am sure you will love it too.

Postcard Scenery & the perfect Summer Weather

London has given its best to bring summer back to the city today. It was such an amazing day with blue skies, no clouds and the sun has not stopped shining for a second. Hope you enjoyed your day like I did. First a walk through Hyde Park, where these pics were taken and then Lunch in Notting Hill. The related EAT OUT post is coming up for sure.

Homemade : Blackberry & Blueberry Sauce



Enjoying summer berries while they are in season. Although Black and Blue do not match in my opinion because I never wear these two colors together. But for this lovely fruit sauce it is the perfect combination.

Sommerfrüchte wie Blaubeeren und Brombeeren gibt es bald nicht mehr, Beeilung also solange sie noch erhältlich sind. Obwohl Schwarz und Blau modisch nicht zusammen passt, ist es in dieser Fruchtsauce jedoch die perfekte Kombination.


In the need for something sweet...

Lola's Cupcakes are known to be the best Cupcakes in London. I can't deny it but for my taste they are a little too sweet. But that's just my opinion. But why I also like them?

TGIF - It's Friday finally...


and the weekend is about to start! When I believe the weather forecast summer will return to London on saturday and sunday with 24°C. I am thrilled because I get to wear this summery flower print shirt again. Flower prints are a summer essential, at least for me. And when fall is coming back next week, I can also wear it with a fur gilet and can still maintain the summer feeling in my head.

London Labels to watch: Finlay & Co

This is the third London label I would like to present to you. Finlay & Co. make sunglasses, but not just ordinary plastic ones. Read what is special about these specs?

Why I love London?

Sometimes people ask me why I moved to London and what I like about it? Well, in my opinion there is no better city on earth!!! Where else do you have the best restaurants, shops, people, parks, cars and architecture all just in one city? Especially I really like to browse around and walk through quiet streets in nice neighbourhoods in order to look at the nice cute houses. The colorful doors are so typical for London. I have found this purple one in Kensington, I just had to take a photo and show it to you.

Short stop at Ladurée then off to London Fashion Weekend

London is still in fashion mode. With Fashion Week being over and Vodafone London Fashion Weekend starting today, there is still no end in sight. I will attend the Amanda Wakeley Show later. But first I will get a snack at Ladurée. Nobody eats at Fashion Weeks so I will prepare myself on the way in order to survive the day in the tent. See you later.

London has the fashion fever - LFW


We all know that London is a fashion city but during Fashion Week it's just crazy. And it does not seem to end. After the official London Fashion Week there is the Vodafone London Fashion Weekend with more shows, showrooms and shopping. So stay tuned because City Freude is attending and will blog about these events. 

The London Fashion Week Chaos



London Fashion Week is still on and I guess that is one of the reasons that it was quite silent on the blog the last few days. I will make it up to you, I promise. But I just cannot stay at home and write when there is so much going on out there around Somerset House. London is even more buzzing when all the international fashion people are in town. I enjoy it a lot. Since I got invited to 8 shows in total I really love being part of the fashion chaos and events related to #LFW.

Check ot the London Fashion Week Website for more information.

Shakshuka for Breakfast - it doesn't get any better

Shakshuka is something we discovered as we had breakfast at Ottolenghi in Islington about two years ago. We had it there for the first time and we love it eversince. With we I mean my boyfriend and me. This arabic breakfast is just perfect and we cannot get enough of it. This morning we had it at a Café in Hampstead. It was divine. If you want to try it at home - I would recommend you go for the original recipe of Yotam Ottolenghi. Start your weekend right with delicious food.

Still of the Day: Harrods - Made with Love

When I have time I love to read magazines especially the Harrods Magazine. Since I kind of live next to Harrods this place is my second home and slightly larger living room. And I also fancy this cover, it is superb.

Time for a Detox Juice!


After having friends over for dinner last night we ate lots of delicious yet a little unhealthy things and we also drank Hugo's. Detoxing is always great after an evening full of carbs and alcohol. This Detox Juice will cleanse your body and is very tasty at the same time.
