Let’s start this week with my latest discovery, a cool new brand called Our/Vodka. It’s a great concept. Selected cities around the world produce their very own vodka by using the same recipe, combined with locally sourced ingredients. The first micro-distilley Our/Berlin has been opend by Pauline Hoch and Jon D. Sanders in Berlin, Treptow. The shop, which also doubles as a bar, is a nice place where you can taste and buy the delicious vodka and learn everyting about the project.
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.

After harvesting all kinds of Summer fruits in my grandma’s garden, making jam has kept me very busy the last couple of days. I’ve been trying out some new variations like Strawberry-Ginger. Love it!
Summer is conserved! Ready for Winter.
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 …
A good coffee in the morning makes my day! For years I have been very bialetti, until I tasted a Belgium drip coffee. My friend was using a simple filter and ever since I am so melitta. I fell in love with this beautiful ceramic filter, bought it and took it home. Using freshly ground coffee is the best there is. The coffee is so mild and soft with an amazing flavor. Believe it or not – I turned into an early bird! Just love it when the apartment smells like coffee all morning.
What about you? How does your perfect coffee-moment looks like?
After all the shopping in the creative Bermuda triangle of Rue Custine, you shouldn’t continue your Paris tour without a lunch at the wine shop “La Cave du Nansouty”. Great food, good wine and a very sympathetic waiter makes this little tour in the 18th arrondissement complete. All the three shops share a great sense of humor and a passion for the unexpected! Enjoy!

It’s Thursday and I have spend all week on my couch with a cooling pad on my face. My wisdom tooth had to go and what remains is a huge appetite. I came along this great little film about Tartine Bakery on Chantelle Grady’s blog and I’m sooo much in the mood to bake my own bread, open my first bakery and hang out on the beach with some cute surfers…OK. enough! It’s time for a new cooling pad and some smoothie.
