My all time favorite place to take a very Parisian break, is the Swedish Institute (SI) in Le Marais.

This wonderful Parisian ‘Hôtel particulier’ is one of the most beautiful places where you can discover Swedish culture, art and design. I love the Café with all the yummy Swedish pastries and the cozy scandinavian atmosphere. Make sure you pay a visit to the garden. It’s magic!

Ps: Isn’t it crazy to go all the way to Paris to have a perfect Swedish coffee moment? I guess it’s all about the mix. Simply perfect!

Le Miroir is my favorite place to wine & dine¹ when I’m in Montmartre. It’s the kind of neighborhood bistro you wish to find when you are hungry in Paris. Perfect for a yummy lunch² or a cozy dinner. Just make sure you reserve a table.

¹ the “cafe gourmand” takes you to the moon and back!
² if you have spend all your money and you want to enjoy French cuisine,  go there for lunch!
The lunch menu is absolutely affordable and the food is amazing.

Last time I have been in Paris at my friends place, I totally fell in love with the exquisite handmade tableware of Astier de Villatte.

The little boutique on Rue St.Honoré takes you on a trip to another century. So inspiring and sensual.
Ps: Don’t forget to check out each and every one of their candles.

Answer: Still in bed!!!
Dreaming of Paris… has kept me busy for the last couple of days. I have spend some days in bed struggling with heavy migraine and toothache. Merry x-mas!
Is there anything worse than being sick during Summer? I guess there is… so I’ll stop crying.
Paris is the pain killer Nr.1!!! So I decided to take you to Paris next week and share my favorite places. After all the Berlin exploring it’s time for some “Très chic, très hip, très sexy”!

The cutest and most stylish backpack I have ever seen. I just found back this picture which I shot last year for my kids style blog Bambino Street Style and I’m wondering which kind of handbag she would choose, when she grows older.

Hell Yeah! I had such a nice Rock’n Roll coffee break with the talented Dutch Tattoo artist Sjoerd, who came all the way to Berlin to extend his “body gallery”. I’m so inspired and can’t wait to receive my new Summer tattoos.
