hand luggage

Today is my last day in Germany before I head to London for 10 days. I’m working through a mental to-do list and making the most of my time with Christian and Ralphy. As I need to pack this weekend I decided to share my tips when packing hand luggage. Whether it’s a long or short haul flight there is a check list of items I swear by.

Who said it’s the January blues???

Thank god it’s almost February. With each day that passes we are that little bit closer to Spring. I always find myself wishing this part of the year away which probably isn’t a good thing. But what can I say? I’m not a fan of the cold! The time has flown by though. It seems like only yesterday I was stuffing my face with Christmas dinner. But I suppose time fly’s when it’s busy. And despite the winter weather January has been a good month for me. Definitely no blues to report so far this year. View Post

lookin good feelin fine minimal guys style

Minimal menswear = maximum style…

I put together this minimal style outfit using a few key wardrobe essentials. The tailored trousers have a wide leg that tapers at the ankle. The simple green jacket is buttoned up to allow those lines clean. I finished the look off with black sunnies, simple white sneakers and gloves. I think this looks relatively lightweight for a snowy winter day. It was freezing! But thanks to some nifty layering I remained nice and warm. It’s nice to go about my day toasty and easy going without always having to bulk out with a heavy coat. View Post

tips speaking second language

If I can learn a second language, anyone can…

Learning a new language is hard, especially if you come from an English speaking country. Let’s face it, life is easier when most people you encounter in a foreign country can understand you. Despite being a lazy Brit who is used to everyone speaking English I always wanted to learn a second language. My journey began when I moved to Germany several years ago with my boyfriend who I met in London.
