Addicted to the Matterhorn

Once you have seen the Matterhorn you'll not want to go anywhere else. I promise you. It does not feel right to leave the Matterhorn behind. The feeling that I won't see this spectacular mountain for one year makes me sad. The view is just breathtaking from the village of Zermatt but even better from the slopes. I cannot get enough of the Matterhorn. It is the most beautiful peek in Switzerland and in fact the whole world. There is no better place on earth to ski.

Lunch at Bontadini

Haters gonna hate - but I just have to share this picture with you. This was my lunch at Bontadini today. It is a restaurant not far from Testa Grigia right at a slope. This Truffle Risotto was so delicious - just a proper skiing meal.

Winter Wonderland at the Matterhorn

Usually I am not really a skiing fan! Why? Well there are several reasons: it is cold sometimes even very cold, you have to wear an extra 5kg in cloth and you hardly get any sun when it snows. But this changes when I see the Matterhorn.

Lunch with a view at Oblix

London is full of fantastic restaurants but there are a few with a view. So if you like something special for the holidays you should book a table at the Oblix on the 32nd floor in the Shard.

Covent Garden Christmas Lights

Covent Garden is very touristy, crowded and loud but the christmas decorations are worth going there. Try to avoid weekends because it is even more busy.

New Phone - New Cover

I am so excited that I finally received the iPhone 6. It's faster, bigger, has more storage and the camera is better too. Superb - but with the different size of the phone I cannot use the iphone 5 covers so I needed a new one. Unfortunately there is not so much of a choice since the phone is so new. But I am in London- there is nothing that I cannot get. At Victoria's Secret I found this and I liked a lot. It's pink, cute and practical...

Another great Christmas Present...

If you still need some christmas presents for your loved ones, go to the Biscuiteers and buy a Christmas Box or design your own biscuits.

Christmas Decorations all wrapped up

Christmas is a wonderful time of the year. When the christmas lights are up, everything is so christmassy and everywhere I go there is a smell of cinnamon and other spices in the air. But what I love the most is how much effort is involved by making the city even more beautiful. Cartier for example wrapps the whole building in a big bow and it just looks stunning. #merrychristmas

This is Knightsbridge!

London is crazy when it comes to cars! If you want to see unique cars, you have to walk around Harrods. Especially in Knightsbridge there are many petrol heads who love their cars more than anything in the world. And what they love even more? Attention.

Name Search at Chanel

Just so you know: I am looking for the black calfskin leather Espadrilles with the silver Camelia Flower on the CC Logo in size 39! There you have it - I am calling Chanel several times a week at several Central London Stores but none of them receive them or I am to late and they have already sold out on the one in my size by 10:30 in the morning (they open at 10). That is as quickly as tickets to the soccer worldcup finale. I know the comparison is strange Soccer and Chanel but just to give you an idea how hard it is to get these shoes. Unbelievable. At the Sloane Street Chanel Boutique I checked the other day - No luck. But I spotted something else. A wall full of names. These names are the most popular first names in the US and instantly I was looking for mine.

Lokum Istanbul on Walton Street

Here is one more Sweet Treat Guide Location. The Lokum Istanbul Store sells the best turkish delights in the city. I don't know anything about turkish delights but I can tell from the demand of the arab women in London that they love it because they buy them in bulk.

London Label to watch : Taylor Morris Eyewear

I love sunglasses - they are like shoes and bags - you simply can't have enough. Last week there was a christmas sale at Chelsea's Beaufort House hosting several London brands like Yolke, Hamilton and Hare, Marina, Blake London and Taylor Morris Eyewear.  

Do we like matching Shoes and Nails?


The answer is YES - we do or at least I do! The only problem is that the Nail Polish by Christian Louboutin is sold out everywhere. It is more like a decoration in the shops because if you lift one up and look for the name it only says : SOLD OUT. I was very disappointed that I did not even get one colour after being in three Boutiques but in the end I was successful after all (in the forth store). I will reveal what colours I got after "Nikolaus". So stay tuned.

Time for Magazines and a Manicure

Weekends are perfect for manicures and for reading a book or a magazine. The new Harrods Magazine is out so I will bring my weekend activity forward and do it today. For my manicure I have chosen these two colours by Essie: "status symbol" & "tart deco" because the perfectly reflect the colour of my roses.

Happy Friday everyone (only one day left to NIKOLAUS)

The Green Machine - Hot, Healthy & Tasty



This Soup will warm you, it will taste amazing and it will help you get your leftovers out of the fridge. You need only 1 of each ingredient. I love soups when the cold season starts and this one in particular because it is easy and comforting. I call it the "Green Machine" but you can also call it Winter Veggie Soup. 

Festive Season = Gym Season

I am a Foodie, and Christmas Time usually means gaining weight because I don't want to miss out on all the lovely treats. The only way to stay in shape is hitting the gym. But how do I motivate myself? Here are six tricks that bring you in sports mode.

Inspiration for Christmas Presents

Christmas is coming soon and Nikolaus even sooner. Do you have all your presents wrapped up yet? Don't panic if you haven't. I will give you ideas on what to get your loved ones for christmas.

Fruit or Veggie Infused Water - or both?

It is all over the internet and on blogs - infused water. These days just regular water isn't enough. We add veggies or fruits to give normal water more flavour. And it supposed to be healthy. What I tried is this combo...

Carnaby Christmas Lights

If you like Christmas or not is secondary! The Carnaby Christmas Lights are a Must-See in London at the moment. See what the artistic Carnaby Christmas has to offer.

Advent Advent ...


Yesterday was the first advent. Christmas Season officially started since I lightened the first candle on the advent wreath. Hopefully your first advent was as nice as mine. I wish you all a lovely christmas season and be merry. Here is a Do it yourself - how I decorated my "Adventskranz" this year.
