Berlin vibes

I had less than a full day in Berlin but that was enough to see that it's such a vibrant and colorful city... people relaxed and prices reasonable.

Looking forward to my next visit!

Near my hotel, district of Friedrichshain Kreuzberg




Near Alexanderplatz


Amazing huge vintage/antique stores where everything actually isn't that overpriced

And now some travel tips:. As I was very hungry, I stepped into the first restaurant I saw, Monsieur Vuong,  and I was lucky because it happened to be such a great Vietnamese restaurant.
 Later I checked on TripAdvisor and apparently it's ranked #36 of 5484 restaurants in Berlin.  It's situated near Rosenthaler Platz station. 
I had an excellent pork and glass noodle salad for only 5 something euros… and instead of tea Tra Chanh Xa - hot limejuice with fresh ginger, lemon grass and honey. Something to try at home! Moreover, all the desserts containing mango puree, banana, coconut and mint sounded irresistible!

6 am at lake Müggelsee in Berlin, shooting for a German designer
The beautiful view, light and fog was worth waking up at 3.30 am.

Guess SS14

Love the knit and leather combination in Guess summer 2014 collection.
My grandma used to crochet me dresses like that for me when I was little.. I remember them looking perfect with my tanned skin and golden locks

Marit Ilison HYÈRES 2014 - Longing for Sleep

On Monday I helped Marit with shooting her collection for Hyères 2014 together with Maiken Staak and Mammu.

Marit Ilison's collection entitled Longing For Sleep features oversized coats made of  old and abandoned Soviet woolen blankets. 
Hidden behind the coats - the most luxurious beaded and sequined dresses.

I am excited to see the outcome!

Remember when I first told you about Estonian beauty brand LUMI  moisturizers back in February (read the post here). 
I started testing  their DNA Defence cream and I'm using it ever since. Now it's included in my simple 3 step beauty routine: alongside with old favourite, Bioderma Créaline H20 face cleanser and Bepanthen ointment. LUMI keeps my dry skin well-moisturised all day long but I still need to use Bepanthen for very dry areas and other blemishes. This multi-purpose  ointment is sold at pharmacies and have seen many make-up artists using and praising it. It works well for dry lips and the lighter cream version also makes a perfect foundation base.

So what I thought about LUMI DNA Defence face moisturizer?
 First, the consistence is rich but feels very light on sking and blends quickly. 
The natural smell of the fragrance-free lotion might feel weird at first when you are used with sweet smelling stuff. I got used to the smell rather quickly and now feel very bizarre when using The Body Shop "peach" bright orange shower gel with a intense fragrance… it probably has never seen any peaches. 

At first times, skin may feel bit itchy after applying the cream, it's probably because of the peeling effect of hyaluronic and lactic acids. After that skin feel soft and smooth again.

This 50ml bottle has already lasted about 2 months and there's still some left.…. The bottle is designed in a special way that  every single drop of cream can be used. Well now my mom started using it too, so guess I need to buy a new one soon… aka it's very universal age-wise
No wonder why it's their most popular product :)


Lumi is available online, Kaubamaja Ilumaailmas, apteekides.

Venezia

Venice: Piazza San Marco

Around St Mark's Square. 
The famous St Mark's Basilica itself was under-construction but that didn't stop tourists and pigeons.

The must-have pistachio gelato on the square

Doge´s Plaza

Caffe Florian, in case you fancy a 7 euro espresso. Established in 1720, it's the oldest coffee house in continuous operation.

Vicenza

My home for today is a small picturesque town called Vicenza, about an hour away from Venice. 
 Its villas and Teatro Olimpico deisgned by Andrea Palladio, one of the most influential architect  in the history of Western architecture, have been enlisted as UNESCO World Heritage Site since 1994.

Looking forward to my trip to Venice later this week

Electromagnetic: Modern Art in Northern Europe 1918–1931


Though artist like Fernard Léger and Juan Gris were working in Paris in 1920s, they also had a big impact on artist of Northern Europe. 

The exhibition curated by Gladys C. Fabre shed more light on the work of the Swedish, Norwegian, Danish, Latvian, Lithuanian and Estonian artists of the period.

The Basis of Concrete Painting (Art Concret, No. 1, April 1930)
  • Art in universal.
  • The construction of a painting and its elements should be simple and direct in its visualization.
  • The technique should be mechanical, that is to say, precise rather than impressionistic.

For me it was like a breath of fresh air... very impressive and inspiring
