A Girl’s Best Friends

Part I

Hello you. Yes, I know, it’s world cup time and there can’t be anything more important right now but please do not expect me to succumb to soccer madness. Of course I want our team to win but I will definitely not run around like a zombie if they don’t. To be honest, I have never understood this extreme passion for Fußball that is to typical for most Germans. In my opinion there are far more interesting sports. For example: alpine skiing … how much control do you need to have over your body to fly down a slope at 120 km/h. ( … and Bode Miller is a god!) or … ice hockey,  watching all this raw maleness is highly tantalizing.

Oh, I am getting distracted … So anyway, I am just going to continue posting about girly stuff.

All my writing about jewelry has inspired me to open our private jewelry boxes. So I asked my girls to dish about their personal taste in jewelry and to share some of their treasures with us. Here are their thoughts:


Jewelry is next to shoes, bags and scarves the most important and versatile accessory a woman should have in her closet.  I own tons (ok, maybe not tons) but a lot of earrings, necklaces, bracelets and brooches.  Naming them all would go beyond the scope of this post (and probably bore you to death), that’s why I picked some pieces which I dearly love.  After I had made this choice I realized that they all have one thing in common:  they were either given to me by strong and independent women and/or they link me to such.

There are the two rings I got from my aunt or the necklace which reminds me of three very special girls. I have the watch that I got from my sister and the vintage inspired earrings with rubies my mom gave me years ago.

And last but not least there is this special bracelet which I share with my best friend and that will always remind me of a life changing experience… .


I love jewelry. Which girl doesn‘t? But I don‘t wear any because it seems that I prefer really expensive stuff. Jewelry is something special to me. Probably that is why I love exclusive things. I have a soft spot for antique jewelry. Every time I pass an antique store I dream of owning one of those wonderful pieces. I love the fact that they have a story and of course I find them beautiful. Actually I think jewelry is even more beautiful when there is a story behind it. I guess I have a more romantic attitude to jewelry.

      I had a crush on Oliver Bierhof in 1998. And Jogi is not bad either. BUT … there are definitely more interesting sports around. Somehow I miss the raw and aggressive edge in soccer. As I said …. downhill skiing …. a man and a mountain, this is sexy! 😉

    “a man and a mountain”. I like that! 🙂 That’s like ” a man and Alaska = Into The Wild” Raw, wild, edgy…

    Oh I think you cannot compare a team sport to a single player contest…I really appreciate that the World Cup bonds so many people who celebrate together, who cry together… but well, each to their own…

  4. Great blog.. yes it is a girls best friend….

    I love this antique engagement ring!
