Today I browsed through the internet and found those patent leather platform court with criss-cross ribbon detail at www.kurtgeiger.com
These shoes are incredibly beautyful and can be combined with jeans as well as très chic pants or a skirt. Simply perfect! They cost 85 pounds...BUY OR NOT BUY IS THE QUESTION...

If you like Indie and Rap Music you should definitely have a look at the site of Akira the Don. Akira The Don (born Adam Narkiewicz) is an independent Welsh rap artist. His song lyrics are very sarcastic (most of them) but very affecting. He deals with politics, social environments and of course with love. The songs are influenced by different rappers like Ice Cube or Wu-Tang Clan. He also performs together with other artist who influence his music. He calls them his Donsquad (including Bashy, Mary Turner, John Leigh, Wade Crescent from Stunners International)and many more. Unfortunatly I never saw him performing but when I am in the UK again, I will defitinetelly go to one of his gigs. On his site you can download various mixtapes (I have all of them and listen to them quite often) as well as order his new LP. Check it out via www.akirathedon.com or his myspace via http://www.myspace.com/akirathedon

One month ago my boyfriend invited me to a nice excursion to a really nice place called "Bahnhof Rolandseck". Bahnhof Rolandseck is now not just a train station but also a museum called Arpmuseum. It's an initiative of Rhineland-Palatinate and a donation of Johannes Arp and his wife Sophie Taeuber-Arp. The train station was center of cultural and social life since 1856. Many well known artist (painters, musicians, poets and more...) stayed there some time and attendet various events. Some of well-known artist are Josephine Baker, Ella Fitzgerald, Friedrich Nietzsche, Johannes Brahms, Clara Schumann, Marcel Marceau and Clown Dimitri.
I am so exited that I have a blog now that I am quite posting a lot. I was at Florence this summer and I went to a very nice shop where I did not buy anything but the selection of designer clothes from all over the world was perfect. It was called Via Roma and when I came home I found the responding online shop while browsing through the internet. Today I went there and found a great amount of dresses I would wear for New Year's Eve which have been reduced quite well. Almost of all them are very last season but who cares if you do not celebrate with fashion experts...
Check out my pictures...if you like them, check out: http://www.luisaviaroma.com/ecnew/Collections/Outlet.aspx
Browsing through www.stylebop.com, I found this Kenneth Jay Lane necklace. It is reduced from 179 EUR to 89 EUR. It would look great with a simple white blouse or a black lace dress for the evening. If you like the design you can find more information referring to Kenneth Jay Lane via NY Magazine: http://nymag.com/shopping/articles/02/homedesign2002/homedesign/jeweler/index.htm
I know that the christ child will for sure not be putting all those nice things under our christmas tree, but I think it's worth to mention because these are my so called "classic wishes" which I keep year after year. Those are key pieces a woman should definitely have and invest in those - except of the Chanel trolley...if you always fly economy class as you may not have a Chanel trolley after the flight...For me the most important key pieces are
- A Trenchcoat (Burberry of course)
- The Chanel classic quilted lambskin bag
- A pair of glamarous Heels (Louboutin)
- The Chanel trolley in cream (I saw it first at paparazzi pictures of Diane Krueger)

As London is my favorite city of all the cities I have been to I also would like to dedicate a post to London.
I have been there three times now and I try to go there twice a year. More is not possible because London unfortunately is too expensive for my purse. In this blog I would like to talk about the following categories:
- London Accomodation
- London Shopping
- London Bars, Cafés and Restaurants
- London Nightlife
London Accomodation: I would highly recommend the Twenty Nevern Square Hotel (http://www.twentynevernsquare.co.uk/) near Earls Court. This hotel is a petite charming boutique hotel. The rooms a decorated very unique and prettily and you room service for free, where they serve tea, coffee and breakfast. I promise that I will never ever stay in another hotel when I am there. Price is very good for London - a double room costs 130 - 160 EUR per night including breakfast. I have to talk about another hotel, but I have to admit that I have never been there...The Pavilion Rock N'Roll Hotel (http://www.pavilionhoteluk.com/), which is situated near hide park. The hotel has 30 totally different decorated room and was used very often for different photo shoots. The Hotel has been created by brother and sister team 29 year old Danny and 33 year old Noshi Karne. He is a former fashion model who after staying in boring Hotels around the world, decided to open a Hotel with a difference.
London Shopping: It is difficult to give shopping tips for London. According to my opinion you will not make any bargains there if you come from US or Europe...but...you can benefit from very unique and special little shops, spend more but have something special to take home with you. If you absolutely refuse to spend a lot or simply don't have the money I would recommend to go to the various markets like Spitalfields (http://www.visitspitalfields.com/), Portobello Market (www.portobelloroad.co.uk), or visit Camdem Town (http://www.camdenlockmarket.com). According to my opinion it is a must to combine Camden Town with a visit to Primrose Hill. Primrose Hill has one of the loftiest vantage points over the city. Well known as a writer's and artist's enclave, the area is now popular with media stars who can often be seen strolling around the village. If you like vintage you should definitelly have a look at Beyond Retro (www.beyondretro.com) and the various charity shops in Notting Hill. If you would like to spend a lot, shop at Bond Street (where all the famous designers are located). You can check all the nice but expensive shops out at www.urbanpath.com.
London Bars, Cafés and Restaurants: Of course you have a endless list of nice locations for nice dining experiences. It is a cliché to think that you will not get a nice meal in England. I don't want to create a list with all the popular restaurants, bars and cafés you can anyway read in newspapers, magazines and www.urbanpath.com. I would like to give to really nice advices. One for Dinner and one for going out afterwards. The last time I was in London I went to a really nice lebanese restaurant called Kaslik (58 Greek Street in Soho W1D 3DY). This restaurant was an experience, cozy, the food was supernice and reasonable priced. You can reserve this restaurant via www.toptable.co.uk .
One Sunday I was cleaning our apartment and found old Ray Bans of my boyfriend (see attached pictures.
