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.
