Tapas, cheese and wine – Spanish flair in Berlin

July 13, 2011

by Charlie

The chances that you end up in the busy and bustling Bergmannstreet while visiting Berlin are pretty high. For a break from all the walking and shopping take a stoll around two corners to the picturesque Chamissoplatz and have a break at COLIBRI, a little Spanish tapas restaurant. Enjoy the silence and the view at all the old buildings with their blooming balconies. Pamper your palate with a glass of wine and e.g. the red rice with spinach and feta.  ¡buen provecho!


Made in Berlin- Kaviar Gauche

In Germany, January and February are all about bridal fashion and wedding fairs. And since we are in the middle of this time of the year here is my contribution to this topic.

Usually the wedding dress comes at the end of a fashion show. Kaviar Gauche are able to come up with a whole show about wedding gowns.

The Berlin based designers from Kaviar Gauche, Alexandra Fischer-Roehler and Johanna Kühl, that are well known for their Lamella-bags have expanded their collection by some really gorgeous dresses for THE day in a woman’s life.

Wonderfull empire waist dresses, feather light, flowing silk chiffon creations combined with leather belts, rivets and chains give this collection an edgy style. And despite the fact that this brand is very popular with Germans and even some Hollywood actors their prices are still affordable.
