Last week New York, this week London: Fashion Week hit Europe finally. Again I will show you my favorite snaps from street style photographer Tommy Ton for style.com.
And scroll down for another restaurant tip for one of my most favorite cities on the world.
My Restaurant Tip: Hoi Poloi
Funny name for an amazing eatery in London’s fashionable east located in the Ace Hotel, 100 Shoreditch High Street. The restaurant is the newest cool crowd magnet of Shoreditch: low lit, healthy shakes and delicious food (Hamburgers, roast chicken or grilled seabass…).
Kiesza – Hideaway
Hideaway was big dance hit at the beginning of this year by Canadian singer Kiesza. As autumn is coming closer and closer I chose this beautiful acoustic rendition of the song for my tune of the weekend. Have a good weekend everyone.
I am not a vegetarian but I am totally for eating healthy and conscious. That is why I love Anna Jones’ A Modern Way to Eat. It is the best cookbook I ever came across. It is modern, the imagery is plain stunning, the design is fresh and the recipes, dare I say, delicious and yummie.
Anna Jones used to work for Jamie Oliver (who is praising Anna in his foreword to the book) as a writer and food stylist. A Modern Way to Eat is her first book and already making headlines in the veggie world.
So what is the modern way Anna is referring to? It is an easier way to cook, a little bit healthier than we used to eat, lighter and wholesome dishes and above all: tasty.
Try out this book. It already says on its cover: it will make you feel amazing.
This one is for all the insomniacs among us. And I count myself to that group. Tossing and turning around and not being able to find the peace of sleep. Well there are some products out there that not only make it easier for you to fall asleep but are also working as a great body overhaul overnight. So it’s a win-win situation.
First start your night by taking a hot bath using This Works’ Sleep Deep Bath Oil. The therapeutic blend of herbs will relieve tension and get you in a sleepy mood.
Follow the program by using L’Occitane Pillow Spray. The essential oils will create a calming and soothing atmosphere so you will slumber easily to get the most out of your beauty sleep.
Complete the routine with Kiel’s Midnight Recovery facial treatment for a youthful glow and skin repair.
I promise you after this beauty sleep program you wake up rested and relaxed. You can start a new busy day with a smile on your pretty face.
Fashion Week season started. First stop: New York City where all the makers and shakers of the fashion world were frolicking last week.
Tommy Ton always snaps the best street styles for style.com and I am big admirer of his work.

My Restaurant Tip: Le Jardin Bistro
If you like vintage art, cosy furniture, mirrors and French food you should definitely go to newly opened Le Jardin Bistro at 115 Avenue C. Simple French food in a stunning environment (the candle lit jardin is open all year) is a seductive combination and definitely worth to try out when you hit the big apple.
Thief – Closer
I came across this song only recently and totally fell for it. I like its fresh sound and you definitely need to check out the video here as well. Australian Thief with his song Closer is a worthy tune of the week.
I just love a simple and classic look. The perfect autumn style is some blue denim jeans and a grey knitted sweater. Being in style through all the seasons makes it easier to say goodbye to summer.
The Odéon quarter in Paris, located in famous Saint-Germain-de-Prés, is definitely one of the nicest areas in this stunning city. It still has this bohemian flair with its many restaurants and bars, exclusive little shops, galleries and obviously the stylish Parisian crowd.
My favorite place in Odéon is Le Hibou, the owl, a restaurant full of taxidermy and a fake fireplace.
It looks like a nice, even if a bit freaky, cosy hangout in the countryside. However checking out the cool crowd you instantly get reminded that you are in Paris.
There are also oil paintings and dark wooden furniture so you can really spend long afternoons there while enjoying your café au lait with a heavenly chocolate mousse. During summer the terrace is open and makes it the perfect place to unwind.
But don’t worry; it is also the right locality for a great dinner. The lambs chops are excelent, but they also serve Caesar’s Salad or the standard beef fillet. Typical for Paris and of course the area specifically the prices are quite hefty.
So if you are willing to spend some cash for a good dinner with a stylish crowd in a typical Parisian atmosphere this place is for you.
I just love Instagram. It sounds really bad but it is one of my greatest addictions going through the hundreds of photos on my feed and checking out what people around the world are up to.
It is not only a great source for the latest trends in fashion or what celebrities and bloggers are up to but also perfect for health advice.
Whether you are looking for fitness ideas or want a recipe for the perfect green smoothie: be sure to follow these three Instagrammers like I do!

The gorgeous health freak and editor of British Vogue chronicles the many ways of wellbeing on her Instagram. Full of tips and recipes, beautiful imagery and quotes this is one of my faves.
This healthcoach and blogger also posts yummie recipes and is famous for her many takes on smoothies and juices.
Sleepy Kitty – Don’t You Start
Weekend time! And I really dig this song, Don’t You Start by Sleepy Kitty. It is a feel-good song that puts me in weekend mode which is what I really need after this hectic week.
