After falling in love with their motorcycle bag I could not wait until Balenciaga came out with their motor cycle leather jacket. It looks really nice and it must be so soft (it's 100% lambskin), but to be honest, I was expecting something a bit more extraordinary.
Today I'd like to finally start on my series of blog posts about travel destinations "Around the world". I'm not sure whether I should include my dream destinations - places I'd like to visit in the future - what do you think? For now I'll stick to sharing my experiences, photos and memories of places I've actually been. Obviously I will include many beaches - my favorite place! :)
Traveling literally means the world to me. Since I was little I always loved going on trips and luckily enough my parents already gave me the opportunity to see a lot of places across Europe when I was a kid. When I turned 15, nothing could stop me from pursuing my dream to go to the US for a year - my American dream. And this year, being young and away from friends and family, has not stopped my hunger for more and more travel adventures. I've made new friends, no matter where I went and although I'm not one to experiment much with foreign cuisine, I do appreciate all other facets of foreign cultures so much. In fact, it is my - maybe silly sounding but at least ambitious - goal to see every country in the world during my life. What can I say, little girl, big dreams: that's me!
A as in ..... Amsterdam.
After this intro to my destination series I'd like to share impressions from my latest trip: I just got back from sunny Amsterdam!

My favorite things to do and see in Amsterdam:
Van Gogh museum
Current exhibition of elephants all over the city
Barhopping around Rembrandt Square
Walking around the whole city by foot across thousands of beautiful bridges over the canals
Shopping at Bershka (part of the Zara empire, hasn't made it to Germany yet)
Going to see Anouk live in concert (she's Dutch and my favorite singer, you MUST check her music out if you don't know her already!)
Walking by all the little flower shops und buying some beautiful tulips
Another simple and chic outfit. It's so casual yet so sophisticated. Amazing! Need to get myself a pair of black converse shoes to dress down an outfit including my boyfriend blazer which would otherwise be too dressy for some occasions.
Once again I'm in love with Lauren's look (this one is from yesterday's 6th Annual Hollywood Style Awards). Her Mara Hoffman dress is GORGEOUS! It's so colorful and so different from your usual black/ blue/ cream/ red red carpet dresses and looks great on her tanned skin. Ugh, I really wish I lived in California now!
Lately I've seen a lot of colorful and bright clothes on her, like this American Apparel tie-dye tank or the watercolor top from her own line for Kohl's.
