Home Sweet Home

Nürnberg(Nuremberg), my hometown in Germany where I was born and grew up. I know every corner, every bar and club, and it feels like I know almost every single person who lives there. About 500 000 inhabitans which makes me feel like it´s a village compared with London and it´s 8 000 000 inhabitants. Not having your own car and getting used to tubes and overgrounds, buses and taxis that make you broke. I´ve been living in London for almost four weeks now, which means the last time I´ve did my nails was over four weeks and I am pretty surprised that my claws are still alive. I´m desperately looking for a new nail designer in London, and guess what, its f**** harder as I thought. If someone out there knows a good nail designer, PLEASE LET ME KNOW. To be honest with you, I miss this little town. Everything is so near and so uncomplicated, not hectic and not loud. Well, this life is over now. Gentiana, welcome to London! ;) If you are in Nürnberg/Germany, make sure to go to "Tapasitos". Great spanish tapas/food and delicious cocktails.

It´s unbelievable, these pictures were taken almost three weeks ago, and I am running around with a Shirt and Shorts. These weather changes making me nuts, but the autumn/winter is arrived now in London and the Shirts and Shorts are gone. This night I spend some time at a nice restaurant in central london. "Piccollino". Nice atmosphare and good food.

I can´t help myself when it comes to overnees, and yes, I am mixing them with a quiet sporty outfits. That´s me! Bought these shoese two years ago in Italy and their still one of my favourites. Simple Short from Zara and Shirt with printed logo "RUN DMC".

Fashion and Textile Museum - Tommy Nutter Exhibition

Today I spent some time at the F & T Museum in London. For all those who didn´t know, Tommy Nutter (17 April 1943 - 17 August 1992), was a British tailor, famous for reinventing the Savile Row suit in the 1960s. He was a tailoring rebel who introduced rakish silhouettes and jaunty cocktail-lounge styles to the bespoke classes and the emerging classless celebrities of the Sixties.
Until his untimely death in 1992, he dressed everyone, from the Beatles and the Rolling Stones, to Elton John, Micheal Jackson and Diana Ross, from Sir Hardy Amies and Lord and Lady Harlech to the Duke of Bedford and Sir Roy Strong.

Posh people and rock people, just the way it should be. Designers like Vivienne Westwood and Tom Ford say that they´re still inspired by Tommy Nutter´s way of design.

You can also see some designs and sketches from the great Designer Zandra Rhodes.

You wake up every sunday and ask yourself "what should I do on this lazy sunday"?! Well, if you ask me you will definitely get this answer: "BRICK LANE". For all those who don´t know, Brick Lane is a street in East London, where you can find food from every countries, various vintage shops and people with that typical London style. It´s almost a must to go there. After eating and shopping through the vintage stores we entry the club which opens around 5 pm. So if you ever get the chance to be in London on a Sunday, don´t miss this street!
