Following the SS13 monochrome trend our easter eggs are ready to be searched for in style ☺…
Happy Easter to all of you!
Let me introduce you a former pro-athlete, personal trainer and founder of Never Quit: Marc Nielsen. I train with Marc for a while and knowing how worried me and my friends can be when the time comes to leave the winter covers away, it seemed to be obvious to ask his advice. Read what he tells us about:
BEACH BODY BOOST
By Marc Nielsen
Last week at the gym it stroked again. The first rays of spring sunshine heat up the Earth and people’s synapses crash just like every spring. The perfect beach-body has to come fast because it’s only a few more weeks until shorts and little summer dresses. Hysteria settles. The question is what to do?
Only to go fast a couple of times running or signing a 24-month gym-contract is not the deal. When one Sunday there is nothing in my fridge and I rush to get something to eat to the nearest gas station I pay extra because I want it fast. To be able to get a beach body within a very short time is an illusion, fuelled by the media. It’s like playing soccer for two weeks and thinking you will be able to join the next FIFA World Cup. It is simply impossible.
Nevertheless we want to help you to gain a healthy and fit start into the new summer, and even more: with our tips you will become fitter, healthier, slimmer and get in better shape than ever before.
I have recently visited Malta twice, the breathtakingly beautiful turist resort, in the heart of the Mediterranean. With its not even half million inhabitants, Malta is also one of the most densely populated countries worldwide. Besides the welcoming nation, having English next to Maltese as the official language makes it much easier for the tourists to communicate. No surprises, Malta has a very busy sea traffic, which is also a great opportunity for the tourists to visit the neighbour islands, such as the most popular natural attraction, the Blue Lagoon on Comino Island, Gozo, or the 80 kms far Sicily. Malta’s capital, Valletta, is known from it’s historical buildings, narrow streets, cosy restaurants serving traditional Maltese dishes.
SilkSoFine Tips: the sea is very salty, the air is very humid, and it is always scorching hot, so your beauty package better includes hair conditioner, sun lotion SPF 30+. Sunshade, sunglasses and light clothing are a must!
Ich habe Malta kürzlich zwei Mal besucht, den atemberaubend schönen Erholungsort im Herzen des Mittelmeers. Mit seinen nicht einmal einer halben Million Einwohnern ist Malta eines der Länder mit der höchsten Bevölkerungsdichte weltweit. (more…)

Die Walpurgisnacht ist ein traditionelles Frühlingsfest am 30. April in weiten Teilen Mittel- und Nordeuropas. Wir Deutsche nennen es meist ‘Tanz in den Mai’, womit wortwörtlich die Nacht durchtanzen gemeint ist – in den Mai tanzen. Feiert morgen mit Stil!

Exciting times are coming: tomorrow I will be working on the behalf of an italian photographer as a stylist, which I will tell you more about later on the blog. When it comes to styling, stylists usually – in conjunction with the photographer and mua (make-up artist) – start up with creating a moodboard kind of inspirational-plan based on the fashion story the team would like to create. If the photoshoot is not commissioned by any magazine or online platform, the artistic freedom and opportunity for improvisation given is most probably the highest possible. The beauty in it is that each member of the creative team gives something unique to the whole concept, by hopefully creating a dream-team sort of collaboration. I’m personally fascinated by seeing such masculine, or rather boyish high-school feel fashion story just like this one. I imagine this story as an everyday morning capture of an effortlessly stylish and naturally beautiful girl, who was the tallest in the class. Despite all the scandals about extremely skinny models, one thing is sure: they make a stir no matter what are they wearing; ripped denim, sparkling sequins or a well-positioned trash-bag on Fool’s Day.
Es kommen aufregende Zeiten: morgen werde ich als Stilistin für einen italienischen Fotografen arbeiten, worüber ich euch später mehr auf dem Blog erzählen werde. (more…)
