It’s Vespa season and you have smelled it! Big time!!!
I have been today at a scooter “come together” at the Winterfeldt Platz in Schöneberg, Berlin. The locals call it “Anrollern”, when hundreds of Vespa fans are starting the moped season by showing off their amazing scooters, followed by a parade though the streets of Berlin. Oh, I’m soooo in the mood for a ride! Can someone pass me a Vespa please!?

It’s finally summer in the city and I am so ready for having fun in the sun. This year one of my favorite coffee-garden is the one in “Clärchens Ballhaus”. They recently opened an extra garden plus a cozy hidden terrace in the backyard. It’s one of the most adorable hideaways, that Berlin Mitte has to offer.

It’s also really nice in the evening. Wine, dine and dance away …

My latest discovery is the lovely back to basic store Kontinentalwaren in Prenzlauer Berg, Berlin.
The philosophy of this shop is “slow shopping”. The carefully selected products are exclusively manufactured in Europe and support conscious shopping. I have found there my new favorite object, a traditional porcelain coffee filter. The coffee is as amazing as this shop!

My latest discovery has been the lovely urban garden project “Prinzessinnengärten” in Berlin Kreuzberg.
A very green and innovative connection of urban life and organic vegetable farming. You can chill out, have a coffee and harvest your dinner. Perfect!

I’m ready to go – today they’re hosting a flea market with life music and the sun is shining.

Lets get this week started with some snap shots from vintage heaven. I’ve been to the opening of the second Garments store in Berlin Mitte. What a great place! When Astrid Lafos and Sandra Keil aren’t busy styling some film stars, they spoil you with the most magic outfits and accessories in their vintage treasure box.
