BEAUTY: My Aveda Haircolor


Did you realize my hair is not that yellow anymore? We tried out to take the damaging color out of them, since I was using blonde spray over the past few months. I always was really cautious about using it and only applied it when I knew I would wash my hair in the next 8-12 hours anyway instead of leaving it in for days. However, still blonde spray left a yellow shine on my hair which was not natural looking at all and the Neo Berlin Studio had to spend around two and a half hours on fixing that again, and what came out is a quite amazing color with a feathery slight "ombre" color fade from the roots to the ends. It had to be bleached and toned and was finished with a purple glossing - can you believe that this one consists of natural Aveda Colors? Its not damaged after the bleach and also there is no need to dye anymore after my roots got my natural hair color back and the brown blends perfectly over in the blonde. I really am happy with my hair right now and can only recommend you to search for the closest Studio offering AVEDA colors, so you can make sure to end up with a natural color that wouldn't kill you hair. Again, I can only thank Oliver who made this happen again and again, I feel really good with the new look :)

OUTFIT: I will always Culotte around


One more Outfit from Paris, feauturing the trousers my boyfriend hates because they are loose and high-waist shaped. Which makes me love it, to be honest. If I could choose one favorite piece this year, it would be the culottes. In any length, color or texture, I just really adore how they feel light as a skirt and comfy as sweatpants - while looking chic as hell and making people always wonder, why anyone should wear them in real life (just like Onesies outside of bedrooms - makes me wonder whats going on in their lives..) So Culottes, I will keep you through every summer and spring that I will experience, since you might last longer than any romance. Just as the infamous "radiator bag that looks like a hand". Makes me just realize that peopl got a thing for criticizing my favorite pieces haha! :D

FOOD: Best Falafel in Berlin at NIL

You want that Peanut Sauce, don't you? I could literally put a straw in it and just survive on that perfectly smooth peanut-salty-sauce. Ok, well thats enough about that, NIL is an african Fast-Food Chain (can you say that with two shops?) in Berlin, serving fresh, homemade falafel, vegetable and halloumi sandwiches, some specials and also the mixed up sandwich featuring all ingredients. If you're really hungry and you have 4€ left, they are really well spent on one of those bad boys or the infamous Maniok Fries (Maniok is barely comparable to the potato, yet looks a bit like a sweet-potato). Also, it happens to be really vegan and vegetarian friendly besides from the spicy lamb meat. Honestly, I could eat one of their falafel right now. Did I mention the Peanut Sauce?

OUTFIT: CULOTTE JUMPSUIT

Look at me, being cheeky in Danzig with my favorite Man while he takes awkwardly his very first Outfitpictures of me.  After a few minutes we even managed to stop laughing at each other, meanwhile the polish people were watching us with wonder and confusion. It might be the culottes, which are strange enough without being a jumpsuit in midi-length. But wait, I also wore it as dungarees with a pinstripe shirt and did not really fit the polish dresscode. Which is pretty normal for me, but if I would get a zloty for every single stare we would use them on going out for dinner, since even the yummiest pierogi were too cheap too be true - honestly, I have never ever eaten that amazing east-european food and I am Ukrainian, so it must mean something. Anyway, we really enjoyed Danzig and will definitely be back soon for more pierogi and beach-time! 

INSPIRATION: autumn is for change

Autumn is pretty close, I rethink my wardrobe again and also my room is having some big changes coming up. Since I was searching for some chairs, I found the perfect one for my best friend, but its sold out, sadly - well the price was around 50€ and this gold-white perfection was sold out pretty quickly. Also, the never-ending search for a bucket bag continues. It it shouldn't happen soon, I might go for the dream bag by building block. My Dr.Martens became more comfy btw, wearing those for days and feeling my little toe again was a release. Those of you who know the problem will feel me.  Pinterest is turning me into a massive Art Lover, I cannot get enough of those patterns and think about getting another blank canvas to continue my work. Are you guys planning something or are you still in summer mood?

OUTFIT: Copper Kimono

This outfit consists of some all time favorite basics and the copper kimono, which strikes again, ever since Ana took some photos of it at the rose wall. I just thought it would be perfect for Paris, suiting some golden-detailed doors but endet up choosing a different setting. Which I am pretty happy with. If you're in a city that is so beautiful that you cannot possibly decide where to go, its even harder to choose one background per outfit only. This is a thing I really miss, ever since being back in Berlin: some not sprayed old houses. But anyway, even tough my sporty-kinda-elegant style suits the setting pretty well, I could not imagine to live in Paris, loving Berlin for its vibes and open-minded people, I was really happy to be back and do enjoy walks in the graffiti-sprayed areas from now on.

COOKING: Chia Pancakes

Welcome to the chia-hype train. Take a seat and have a pancake, because I usually only had it in the really easy way and prepared some chia puddings or put them on top of my fruit bowls in the morning, but they are so easy to prepare and do not really have an own taste that they make a really nice allround ingredient for all kinds of food. I do have a really nice recipe which works for vegans as well as for sugar-avoiders and is absolutely satisfying your sweet tooth. Which I say as a person who has been eating that for three days in a row ;) All you need for 12 mid-sized or 20 small pancakes is here:
