08072016: #THE LAST DAYS IN ROME

Hello everybody ! I’m back in Germany now for one week and in September I will continue studying Fashion Journalism in Düsseldorf. I really enjoyed the year in Rome and it was hard to leave this beautiful city, the warm climate (!!!) and my lovely friends over there. Anyway the last week in Rome I went to some points and streets that I didn’t make before, for example the ‘giardino degli aranci’, a garden on a hill where you can see whole Rome. Here some impressions of that day, about other parts of Rome I will tell you in a later post. Kisses, Josi ;* ___________________________________________________________ Halli hallo hallöchen ! Ich meld’ mich dann mal zurück aus Deutschland. Bin seit einer Woche wieder hier und im September geht’s in Düsseldorf weiter im Studium Modejournalismus. Rom war echt eine wunderbare Erfahrung und ich habe das Jahr dort sehr genießen können. Die schöne Stadt, das warme Klima (!!!) und meine Freunde dort zu verlassen, fiel mir echt schwer aber neue Stadt, neues Glück ! Die letzte Woche …

03062016: #THE BEGINNING OF SUMMER

Hello everyone ! Summer is arriving ! Actually it has already arrived some weeks ago in Rome but although I’m the 100%-summer person who can’t get enough of heat and will freeze at 20°C. That’s why I’m super happy that it’s now getting warmer and I can start wearing shorts, for example like in this outfit my new favourite Levi’s 501 Vintage. What do you prefer in summer ? Hot pants, skirts or dresses ? _________________________________________ Der Sommer kann kommen ! In Rom ist er eigentlich seit ein paar Wochen da, aber ich bin einfach ein 100%-Sommer Mensch. Ich kann nicht genug Hitze bekommen, dafür fang ich bei 20°C an zu frieren. Deswegen bin ich umso glücklicher, dass es jetzt noch wärmer wird und ich endlich wieder Shorts tragen kann, wie auch in diesem Outfit. Die Levi’s 501 Vintage ist meine erste Levi’s, aber jetzt schon meine absolute Lieblingsjeans ! Was tragt ihr lieber im Sommer ? Hot pants, Röcke oder Kleider ? Un bacio, Josi ;*   – Levi’s Jeans, Na-Kd Bag, Zara embroidery …

31052016: #ROME WITH FRIENDS

Halli hallo & buon giornooooooo ! Traveling and living abroad is something really amazing, but it becomes perfect when you’re with the right persons. That’s what I recognized again last week with my best friends who came to visit me in Rome ! __________________________________________________ Im Ausland leben und ständig zu Reisen ist eigentlich eins der schönsten Dinge im Leben, perfekt wird es dann, wenn noch die richtigen Personen dazukommen. Das hab’ ich letzte Woche nochmal richtig bemerkt, als zwei meiner besten Freundinnen mich in Rom besucht haben ! So here some impressions, enjoy your first days of June ! :> Hier ein paar Eindrücke, ich wünsch’ euch allen eine schöne erste Juni-Woche ! :> Kisses, Josi;*   – I can’t believe that this was already one year ago –

18052016: #ULTIMATE VEGAS STYLE

What would you wear if you are in Las Vegas for one day ? I was thinking about this and created three looks for the perfect day in Las Vegas. During daytime I would do a walk through the streets being dressed in a casual style, while the evening will be much more elegant and fancy walking through the hotels. What would YOU wear ? Let me know ! :> Was zieht man an, wenn man genau einen Tag in Las Vegas unterwegs ist ? Als ich darüber nachgedacht habe, sind mir spontan drei Outfit-Ideen eingefallen. Tagsüber würde ich  recht casual durch die City laufen und abends ein wenig eleganter und ausgefallener ausgehen zum Beispiel in den schicken Hotels. Was würdet IHR tragen ? Lasst es mich wissen ! :> #UltimateVegasStyle PS :Thanks to my lovely photographer Veronica ! ❤ xx Josi ;* – shorts & hat Stradivarius, crop top & bracelet NA-KD, bomber jacket Esprit, shoes Primark, bag New Look – – jumpsuit Primark, belt & shoes Zara, bag Mango – – jumpsuit Topshop, …

14042016: #PARTICULAR DAYS

Hey everybody ! Summer in Rome has arrived. I think we literally skipped the spring. The temperatures reach up to 29 degree, the sun is shining all day long and I’m just happy, nothing else. Today we had a visit from the Accademia and we went to two different shops in the centre of the city. One of them was called ‘Re(f)use’ and it was absolutely amazing. Particular accessories with items that are known for another usage, very particular ! Fashion is a so many-sided topic and you can always discover new things that you’ve never seen before… By the way today there arrived my little package from NA-KD, more news on my snapchat account. This was my outfit of today, actually not a good idea to dress all-over in black on a 29°C- day, but however… PS: I decided to write in English and German from now on, maybe at the end of this year even in Italian… :> PPS: And I promise the next time I will absolutely write more constantly. Kiss, kiss, Josi …

02032016: #POSHTATTOOS & OTHER STORIES

Ciao a tuttiiii ! I can’t believe that it’s already March. We just celebrated New Years Eve 2016, where has all the time gone ? As I already gave you a preview in my previous post, last week there arrived a little present with some new lovely Posh Tattoos (thaaaaank youuuu, by the way !). This time I got the Sheet White Orient which includes (surprise, surprise) not golden, black or silver, but white temporary tattoos. I just love them and I’m already looking forward to wear them as well in summer when my skin is even more tanned. White is as well the inspiration for my entire outfit, ‘less is more’ is what explains my mind best right now, I’m actually most of the times wearing black or white maybe with some colored accessories. The outfit details you can find below as always whereby I have to say that the destroyed look is self-made, because one of my favourite hobbies is destroying clothes, ahahah. By the way I love the location, the Colosseo Quadrato in the zone EUR of …

20022016: #THE NEW ESSENTIAL

Buona sera a tutti ! Spring has officially started… I went out without tights for the first time this year, in FEBRUARY. Unbelievable, but that’s Rome. Last week my iPhone thermometer told me 20°C, impossible but good anyway. Time to wear one of my new favorites for this season… THE CULOTTE. This model I found at Zara (the brand of my trust) for just 20€ ! #dealoftheweek Sign No. 2 that spring has arrived, I got post from Poshtattoo ! So happy about it, for suuuuuure there will be a post online very soon, but let’s keep the suspense a little, so this is just a preview… Guess which sheet I got for this season ? A little clue: It’s not silver, neither gold… Un bacio, Josi ;* – outfit details – CULOTTE Zara BASIC SHIRT & CHOKER H&M SHOES Primark BAG Michael Kors PS: And yes, I love wearing head-to-toe-black. PPS: My newest moodboard about Pre-Fall 2016’s Trend: WHITE, but psssssshhh…      

26012016: #LA BELLEZZA DI ROMA

Buona sera a tutti ! It happens to everybody, being angry about something or annoyed by somebody or just in a bad mood. In this case I just remind myself about the fact that I’m living in one of the most beautiful cities in the world: ROME. Mostly sunny, blue sky and full of inspiring old buildings. Last Wednesday I went a little bit earlier to School and recorded my way to school in pictures. Of course I made an extra round along the Tevere, but in general it reports quite well my way to school. The only thing that you can’t see in the pictures is the frostiness, but despite of this the pictures literally reflect the reality in its colors. What else ? Ci vediamo, un bacio ;* Josi PS: What I love about Italy and hate about Germany as well is the sale situation. In Italy it’s quite similar to America. Special dates when the sale starts and with sale I mean SALE. Last Saturday I went to Porta Di Roma (a …

16012016: #OVERTHINKING

Hi everybody ! I hope you’re all doing well. My week was quite eventful as always and I don’t know why but right now I’m overthinking. Thinking about every step I make, every word I say, every look I wear, every day that passes. Actually it doesn’t suit me at all, normally I’m the most spontaneous person ever but my mind literally is almost exploding caused by thoughts about the future. In school it went quite nice this week and I got back the goal I almost forgot about in the last month. Starting the new semester after the first assessment means as well new subjects. For example: Fashion Writing & Editing. I’m so happy about this because that was the actual goal I had and have but I nearly forgot about it: Becoming a Fashion JOURNALIST. Traveling, being stressed all the time & under time pressure, but write, judge and recognize tendencies, that’s what I want. One of the most transcendental moments of the week was when we watched this video in class. One …

29112015: #CALVIN KLEIN PARTY & HAPPY FIRST ADVENT

Happy first advent, buon primo avvento a tutti & einen schönen ersten Advent wünsche ich euch ! I can’t believe how fast the time passes by this year. It feels like I just came back from my summer in Crete and now I’m already 71 days living in Rome… incredible. Last week arrived two supersweet packets from Germany. My mum realized the impossible and sent me christmas decoration and a self-made advent calendar to Rome. I’m so looking forward to open the first present on Tuesday ! A huge thank you again, mum ! ❤ Today I decorated my room a little and while doing so I listened to the Christmas Radio to get the right Christmas feeling. The pictures of the result are attached in this post of course ! :> Here in Rome it’s getting cold as well right now, so for sure I already started to freeze, too. Up to now I still didn’t succeed in finding a place on earth where I never feel cold, hahah. However, in actual fact I just …

04112015: #ROMAN NOVEMBER

Buona sera a tutti ! ❤ Allora, oggi scrivo in italiano. Scherzo, hahah, certo che no ! Ancora… Well, first of all, happy November ! I can’t believe that this year is nearly over, it just has started ! Soon it’s already Christmas… Here in Rome it even more feels less like winter because in the sun it’s still 20° C and you can sit outside wearing just a top. However, my third week of school started yesterday and things go very well ! Finally I can learn about things which really interest me… fashion, photography, design, communication, editing & co. ! It’s much more easier to motivate yourself for doing a homework about a topic that anyway would have interest you ! Along the way I’m studying Italian and try to speak as soon as possible. What really made me tick this week are two things. First of course the H&M Balmain Collection ! I love it ! ‘Til now I used to deem those women who wait in cues since 6 a.m. in …

25102015: #ONE WEEK 7 STYLES

Salve ! It’s time again for an update about my first week, better in pictures than in words, because it’s quite hard to describe. Well, first of all I got surprised on the first day of school because my course is not taught in English at all. Due to the fact that unexpected I’m the only international student in my course, they decided to make it in Italian, I now got something like a personal translator, hahah. Actually it’s not funny at all but I have to keep up with the situation and so: “veni, vidi, vici” ! Anyway I want to learn Italian but that is a process which can’t be made in a few days and so I have to improvise. My course is very nice and funny even if I don’t get the jokes most of the times, hahah ! However, here the outfits of the last adventurous seven days… Ci vediamo, baciiii ;* Josi – Day 1: Destroyed Start into the new week, Jeans Topshop, Parka Zara –  – Day 2: Black & White …

18102015: #SUNDAY MOOD

Buona seeeeeeeeera ! I hope you’re all fine. I’m quite excited because tomorrow will be my first day of university. During last week I was busy with some homework and today I went with one of my nice schoolmates to the biggest second-hand market in Rome: Porta Portese ! It always provides new surprises, where ever you go, the market seems to have no end at all. Consequently we did not reach to see the whole market, maybe next week… The vintage treasures I found today you will see in detail on the pictures. On the occasion of the new part of my life starting tomorrow I decided to make a new design on this blog, and of course I’m happy to get some feedback. However, here the pictures of my sunday-fleamarket-outfit (first time with my balcony as location :D) and as always the links where you can find it. As it was quite cold in the morning I wore a casual sweater, denim jacket and a scarf. Of course there will an update about …

06102015: #ALLORA #2WEEKSOFSTRESS #NEWHOME

Buona sera a tutti ! Finally I’ve reached to arrive in Rome. After 2 weeks, 14 days and 336 hours full of interior pressure, tension, running through the city and appointments for watching flats, I finally found a lovely apartment in Portonaccio, a small part next to Tiburtina in Rome. As soon as I now finally get the last missing thing in the flat (WIFI) I will upload this post. (–> finally today hahah, I wrote the post already 3 days ago :D) Actually caused by not having a free second at all this post will be a big one about the last 2 weeks and also the flat details of the result. We start at the beginning. Saturday morning, 19th of September: Grande catastrofe… the car is full and we start our long journey. 1500 km to Rome. Oh yes, at least I was not driving at all, so I had the easiest part of all – sleeping. Including all lunch breaks, rests and the final traffic in the city of Rome we finally …

28032015: HARD BUT SUCCESSFUL – MEIN STADTPLAN & ICH

Buon gioooooooooooornooooo ! Was eine Woche ! Ich kann immer noch gar nicht glauben, dass ich ab Oktober 2015 in Rom leben werde und an der Accademia di Costume e di Moda ‘Fashion Editor – Styling & Communication’ studieren werde… Dienstag früh bin ich nach Rom geflogen, weil ich am Mittwoch dort das Admission Interview hatte, in dem ich unter anderem mein Portfolio vorstellen sollte. Nach dem Einchecken im Hotel, habe ich mich am Dienstag erst einmal auf den Weg in die Stadt zum Sightseeing gemacht – natürlich mit Stadtkarte und zu Fuß ! Bei milden 19° C war das angenehm und ich habe natürlich die wichtigsten Attraktionen wie die Spanische Treppe, den Piazza Navona, das Tiberufer usw. gesehen. Außerdem wollte ich zum Trevi-Brunnen, noch eine Münze werfen, denn das soll ja Glück bringen. Dort angekommen musste ich leider feststellen, dass dort gebaut wird und es war kein Wasser im Brunnen, hahah schade ! 😀 Nach einem langen Tag bin ich im Hotel einfach nur ins Bett gefallen, trotzdem konnte ich kaum schlafen, denn der …
