Does Lukas Rieger have a girlfriend?

Lukas Rieger wants a friend. He says that his love life was too short due to all the hustle and bustle, the busy schedule and the concerts. Now he longs for someone he can trust and talk to about everything on his heart. Finding someone like that, however, is not easy, Lukas knows. He still travels a lot and has hardly any time, so a relationship would be very difficult for him. Secretly, however, he hopes for a happy coincidence in which he meets his lady of the heart. He longingly posts pictures on Instagram with the signature “Need a Girl in my Life” or “Can someone be mine?”.  You can impress Lukas above all with humor and adventurous spirit. In an interview, he reveals how his girlfriend should be – simply cool and funny.  He does not have a certain type of woman, it is important to him that it fits and they have a nice and exciting time together.

How do I get the Lukas Rieger phone number?

Lukas music and his career

Lukas Rieger has always had a special relationship to music, even as a small child he loved to sing and make music with his family. At his school in Burgdorf he attended a music class and was allowed to participate in several performances and thus gain first experiences on stage.

Everything started with The Voice Kids

In 2014 he ventured a big step and applied for the Tv show The Voice of Germany Kids. In the first round he convinced Lena Meyer Landrut with the song “Can´t hold us” and became part of her team. But already in round two, the battels burst his dream and he had to leave the show.  Of course he was sad but giving up was not an option for him!

Social Media makes him famous

Luke started building a social network through the media. He first released cover songs on Instagram and YouTube, which quickly became popular and attracted more and more fans. His fan base was growing. He also became active on Musical.ly and could enchant the girls with sweet videos. In 2014 he released his first single “Be My Baby”. Only a few months later he released two more songs. The singles “Ready 4 This Shit” and “Lightspeed Lovers” were loved by his fans.

The first album “Compass” is a great success

A music production label became aware of the social media star and gave him the opportunity to fulfill his dream. His first album! The producers have worked with stars such as Justin Bieber and Justin Timberlake, so it was no surprise that the album’s hit “Elevate” reached number 4 in the charts. Yet Luke was overwhelmed. On September 30th his first album “Compass” was released and became a complete success. Shortly after the release he also started his first tour across Germany. All concerts were completely sold out and the halls filled with screaming girls who adored their star, an absolute success!

The second album “Code” storms the charts

In February 2018 the fans were happy about the second album of their swarm, because on February 16th the album ” Code” was released. The 11 songs on the album are great and varied, the fans are absolutely thrilled and so the album reaches number 2 in the German charts. His songs are about love but also about his life, business and family. Also with this album he soon goes on a big tour to conquer the hearts of the girls.

The lyrics of his hit “Elevate”

“Elevate” is the first successful single and the favourite hit of the Lukas Rieger fans. Below the lyrics you will find the popular music video, which was shot in Tokyo.

Elevate
You’ve got my heart all up in a knock
You pic me up just so i can drop

Celebrity Big Brother Germany 2018: Ex Curvy Supermodel Chethrin Schulze

On 17.08.2018 the new season Promi Big Brother starts on Sat1! With already exciting residents and candidates like Sophia Vegas (30) but also DSDS singer Alphonso Williams (56), both famous for glitter, bling bling and’over the top’. Besides Youtuberin Katja Krasavice (21) and Selfmade millionaire Heinz von Sayn-Wittgenstein (64) there is now a very special Trash TV star: Chethrin Schulze.

+ AD + Do you know?

Chethrin Schulze, Sophia Vegas – Big Brother is going crazy

Some still know Chethrin Schulze from Curvy Supermodel (here you can find all information about Curvy Supermodel 2018 by Angelina Kirsch). The current season with curvy model Mama Angelina Kirsch is currently running, would she be proud of Chethrin? Definitely! Ex participant Chethrin, who is known not only from TV modelcasting, but also from other TV formats such as “Love Island” or various “BH Sport Tests” on the same channel, Sat1 breakfast television. So Chethrin has always been looking for the big stage. She now has over 100,000 followers on Instagram and can certainly call herself an influencer. In a few days the buxom blonde will move into the Celebrity Big Brother House 2018 with all candidates and residents.

That’s Chethrin Schulze! Influencer, single and now 20 kg lighter

Since her appearance at Curvy Supermodel two years ago, Maria has already lost 20 kg, you can tell. The smart blonde now weighs only 65 kg and appears even more frequently in a bikini. I wonder what that’ll mean for the Big Brother house. Chethrin naked in the shower? In the interview, she said no. At least she says you won’t see her naked in the shower – wait!

Maria is single and has no boyfriend

Mariya rejects men so far so that she can fully concentrate on herself. Mr. Right just hasn’t been around for the last few months. Although Chethrin, as she said in an interview with Philipp Hageni on Sat1 breakfast television, gets many dating offers from Bundesliga footballers via Instagram. Also from footballers of the German national team! She wouldn’t mention names. Why? What these guys want from her, certainly not a relationship.

Maria on Instagram

On Instagram Maria now has 127,000 followers and that means a lot. More than 100,000 fans are interested in her life, her look and news from me. If you want to see them on Instagram yourself, you can find their account here:

Cliché blonde or smart VIP star?

To find out if Maria is perhaps only one of these typical It girls, she was taken directly to the construction site shortly before the interview. Does she manage to shovel a wheelbarrow full of earth, directly from the construction site and spontaneously? Maria doesn’t hesitate for a second, nobody would have expected that. In fact, Maria is not only likeable but also very uncomplicated, a few weeks ago she helped her father to build a house. A real tree girl – strong!
Celebrity Big Brother 2018: This is how the current relay

Celebrity Big Brother has been running successfully on Sat 1 for many years now: interesting characters, C celebrities, VIPs from 1980, new stars from television and social media, so with Celebrity Big Brother you make an interesting TV show that over 1 million people want to see every year. Also this year there are interesting characters, e.g. the Swiss star psychic Mike Shiva. But also the moderation has changed a little.

+ AD + Do you know?

Celebrity Big Brother Moderators

This year’s moderator will be Jürgen Schropp, who has been moderating the event for many years, and Queen Marlene Lufen breakfast television. If you want to see them live together, you can watch them every morning on breakfast television, because the Power Duo is already playing on Sat1 every morning from 6am to 10am.
Marlene Lufen: Breakfast television Queen

Our absolute favourite moderator Marlene Lufen takes over this year the Co-moderation with celebrity Big Brother, beside long-term moderator Jrgen Schropp. Marlene Lufen is not only known from breakfast television but also from many other TV formats. Here you can find more of Marlene Lufen on Instagram.

Jürgen Schropp: A must have for #PBB

As every year, presenter Jürgen Schropp takes over the likeable side. As described, he is already hot on Sat1 breakfast television in order to be fit to move into the Big Brother House!

Desiree Nick – back on?

Is Desiree Nick backstage reporter again? Desiree Nick has been an icon of B celebrities for years. Whether it was in the jungle camp or at Celebrity Big Brother’s, Desiree Nick is sure to provide great entertainment.

The other celebrity Big Brother candidates 2018

Like every year, Celebrity Big Brother is about bringing together more or less well-known celebrities. This year’s season will once again feature a number of candidates who will certainly provide explosives.

Many still remember grandiose appearances, e.g. by Desiree Nick but also by pop singer Hubertus, who now attracts attention with black fingernails and a certain penchant for eccentricity. In this year’s season there are some very interesting candidates besides Chethrin. Among others the Swiss star psychic Mike Shiva. His esoteric manner and the statement that he is absolutely not a WG human being, provide already once for tension. For the ladies there is also something for the eye, Johannes Haller, known from German dating shows!

Here are some more portraits:

Mike Shiva

Word is the star clairvoyant in Switzerland and looks after many people on television almost every day. Although clairvoyance is nonsense of course, safety margin is the candidate! Let’s see if he can predict his own future!

Sophia Vegas

Yippie, yippie, yeah!

Here is another musical highlight, Sophia Vegas ft. Snoop Dogg.

Heinz von Sayn-Wittgenstein

May it be a bit of nobility? The self-made millionaire. More about Heinz from Sayn-Wittgenstein to Instagram.

Katja Krasavice

Thick lips? That’s actually their current song. See more: Katja Krasavice Youtube.

Big Brother, the TV format

Big Brother started over 15 years ago. The TV concept originally came from the Netherlands and initially only intended to put private individuals in a house. 10 people who live together for a certain period of time, in public, with cameras on every corner. The first season was an absolute success and something completely new on German television. Today Big Brother has evolved and is mainly looking for C celebrities, VIPs of the past but also current, upcoming TV or social media stars. Through a mix of interesting characters, as one knows it from all other TV shows, interesting situations are created daily: Be it the naked shower or the argument.

Past and casting show breakthrough

How old is Lina anyway? Lina is 20 years old today, just before the famous age “21”, which many artists like Taylor Swift have sung about. She was born in 1997, more precisely on 15 December, in Seelze and she grew up there with her parents, without siblings. The small, tranquil town with just 30,000 inhabitants has left its mark on Lina on her way to becoming a music star. Music star, that’s always been her dream. So is the dream of many young people. Not in Seelze now, but all over the world.

Lina Larissa Strahl, also often known as a singer only as Lina. In Swedish, her name means the blonde, which goes well with her appearance. Very often Lina is accompanied at the moment by her golden retriever poodle hybrid Ilvie.

Lina attended the Georg-Büchner-Gymnasium and finished school with a 1.9 Abitur. She always wrote her own songs. Besides school, she made her breakthrough in 2013 when she won the casting show “Dein Song” with her self-composed song “Freakin’ Out”.

News from Lina to Instagram

On her Instagram account _lina_official_ she provides her 528k subscribers with current pictures from her private and public life: Lina Instagram.

Your most recent successes from “Glitter” to “Egoist”

Among her most successful songs are “Glitter” and “Egoist”. In her lyrics Egoist she sings about selfish behaviour and how it can affect other people.

Does that song have something to do with Lina’s boyfriend?  Since December 2016 she is officially together with her acting colleague Tilman Pörzgen. At the beginning it was not quite obvious and there was a lot of speculation. But now the two are regularly happy on Lina’s Instagram account. Nevertheless, Lina wants to concentrate on her career, especially as a singer. She even has a record deal. She signed with BMG Music Plubishing. BMG also represents great and international artists like Alicia Keys and Kylie Minoque.

Lina is not only known from the music business. She is also a successful actress. Most people probably know them from the well-known films “Bibi and Tina”. Bibi plays the witch in these movies. That means she not only enchants us with her great new music videos, but also plays a leading role with witchcraft. In 2015 Lina won the special award of the “New Faces Award” for her role in Bibi&Tina for her acting.

In the Disney cinema film “Vaiana”, which appeared in cinemas on December 22, 2016, Lina is allowed to speak to the princess. In this role she particularly likes the strength of character, courage and optimism, which she likes to take as an example.

She also writes lyrics. In her free time she also likes to play piano and guitar. Lina is an all-round talent. But she wants to concentrate more on her singing career. Something “down-to-earth” should not be missing from her opinion either, which is why she plans to study history at some point.

Curvy Supermodel by Angelina Kirsch: Jury, Candidates and Final 2018

On July 26, 2018 the 3rd season Curvy Supermodel started on RTL 2. For 7 weeks the show runs on TV on Thursdays at 8.15 pm. In the 7 episodes the girls have to master different tasks, develop themselves constantly and in the end convince the jury of their talent – this season will be more exciting than ever, promises RTL 2.

+ AD + Do you know?

The jury has two new faces and two familiar faces

This year again, the girls will be supported and promoted by a professional and experienced jury. The four-man jury accompanies all participants on their way and will do everything to get the best out of their protégés. At the end of each episode they decide who was convincing and for whom the dream of the title “Curvy Supermodel 2018” is unfortunately over.

Curvy Model Angelina Kirsch

Already for the third time the German Curvy model Angelina Kirsch sits in the jury. It is highly successful in Germany and internationally and represents brands such as Zalando and H&M. She knows exactly how the business works and what is expected of the girls. At the same time Angelina can put herself in the shoes of the young candidates and support them personally.

Jan Kralichka: The Men Model

Yan Kralichka will be there for the first time in 2018. He became famous through the TV show ” der Bachelor” in 2013, but even before that he was already in front of the camera, because he is a professional model.  Through his experience he has the best tips for the girls in front of the camera.

Jana Ina Zarella for Power!

The second woman on the jury is Jana Ina Zarella. She is a model, TV presenter and designer, a real multi-talent. The participants can judge her through her versatile career from different points of view but also help to try themselves out. She was already with Curvy Supermodels last year and was so enthusiastic about the development of the girls that she definitely wanted to be part of the jury again in 2018.

Oliver Tienken is coach, choreographer and dancer

Oliver Tienken completes the jury this year. As a successful coach, choreographer and dancer he will rehearse great performances with the girls. From him they learn how to move as a successful model and present themselves on the catwalk to be successful. Oliver knows how to do it! He ran across the runway ready with Naomi Campbell.

What must the Curvy supermodel 2018 bring?

charisma and self-confidence! A very important topic, because a Curvy model must be able to inspire people and get them on their way. She must be able to present herself and her body self-confidently and above all with pride. Discipline and ambition are also part of it. It’s often a tough job and you really have to want it to be on top. It is important to fight for one’s dreams and to keep working on oneself and improving. It is a job where you should always be in top form to satisfy the customers, you have to be able to deal with precipitation and sometimes stamina. One of the most important things about a Curvy model is of course the curves. A beautiful hourglass silhouette and no hunger hook is sought. There is no minimum size and no exactly specified dimensions. You can take part from 16 years upwards there is no limit. 2016 was the oldest participant 32.

The last episodes decided about the big chance

More than 5,000 girls applied for the show this year. On the basis of the application photos, the jury made a pre-selection and invited the more than 50 girls selected to the casting in Düsseldorf. The girls were allowed to put together their outfits themselves without any specifications and so some walked down the catwalk in evening wear and others in bikinis. As a surprise, the girls received professional make-up and hairstyling before their performance. Then we went onto the catwalk for each one separately. To go one round further, the girls had to convince at least three jurors. For the girls who did it, it went directly to round 2, where they had to present themselves in a group walk, the difficulty was that it was a photo shoot at the same time. In the end Ines, Victoria, Tessa, Larissa, Tessa and Yolanda made it to the next round.

In the second casting there was the same principle and the same Prerequisites as a model. Before the Canadians came onto the catwalk, a voice message recorded by them was played on which they introduced themselves and tell what influenced them and thus made them a strong, self-confident woman. They also completed a rehearsed group catwalk in round 2.

In the next episode the last potential models will be selected! It’s the last casting of this season and then it really starts! In the last casting, touching stories of models who talk about the negative experiences with their bodies await us once again.

Here you can find more videos about the Curvys:

The last winners of Curvy Supermodels

The first season 2016 was won by 23-year-old Celine Denefleh. She was present throughout the season and delivered. All in all, she had the greatest development of the participants and gave the jury goose bumps. The 23-year-old was delighted with a great model contract with Ted Linows Model Agency and became the face of a winter campaign for a well-known plus-size fashion label.

In 2017 Hanna Wilperath surprisingly won the title. She wasn’t one of the favourites but that only strengthened her fighting spirit. The 24-year-old convinces with her naturalness and her motto “The curve with the most sex appeal is your smile”.

This year the winner is expecting a cover and a model contract

This year the winners of the show will be on the cover of the German fashion magazine “Joy”. In addition, she is awarded a model contract by Peyman Amin’s renowned agency Pars Management.

Coco Chanel a fashion icon – perfume, fashion and emancipation

Gabrielle Coco Chanel, grown up as a sad child in an orphanage, died as a legend. Born in 1983 in Saumur/France, she made a name for herself 30 years later in the fashion industry. Her speciality: unusually functional and yet feminine and elegant women’s fashion. Who wanted a corset and wanted to look like everyone else was wrong with Coco Chanel. Light blouses, airy tops, wide cut ladies’ trousers or calf-length skirts made of comfortable fabrics such as English tweed, mottled weed, wool jersey, bouclé or bourette silk.

Fashion is ephemeral, style never – Coco Chanel

One of Chanel’s most famous creations is the Chanel costume. A waisted costume jacket with a continuous shoulder seam over the sleeves, narrow sleeves that are cut so that the jacket does not slip even when the arms move, and discreet shoulder pads that always guarantee a straight silhouette. Gold-coloured chains and gold-plated lead weights have been sewn into the seams to ensure a perfect fit.

The classic Chanel jacket had four straight-cut pockets at hip height. The jacket is either not closed at all, with a head or a chain at chest or waist height, a usually single-row button placket or a simple zipper. The lining of the jacket is individually matched to the outer fabric or the matching blouse. A pastel-coloured blouse with a silk georgette sling collar was usually worn with a classic Chanel costume.

  • 1996 Schiffer and Lagerfeld go separate ways.
  • 2000 Schiffer and Lagerfeld are working together again, and more international stars like Vanessa Paradis, Nicole Kidman Audrey Tautou, Keira Knightley or Blake Lively have been used as testimonials for Chanel.
  • Since 1983 until today Chanel has again been considered a “high fashion brand” and has found its old glory thanks to Lagerfeld.

The Chanel Logo: Simplicity in the Integrity of Design

Chanel himself designed the logo in 1925. The two “Cs”, pushed into each other, stand for the first letters of the name of the founder and surname. The Chanel logo is as effective as it is long-lasting thanks to the simplicity in the integrity of design.

Coco Chanel as pioneer of emancipation

A tightening corset just because it’s socially acceptable? Not with Coco. Thanks to Coco Chanel’s fashion, women were no longer the decorative object and wealth card of their husbands, but on the right path to independence.  She demonstrated to the women that a woman can be independent in every respect – if she is willing to pay the price for it. No matter what others said, Chanel has always defended her fashion and view of things, which was absolutely scandalous at the time, but it paid off with a revolution in the apparel industry.

Especially in the present time, in which feminism is a big topic, Coco is remembered, who stands with her fashion until today for the emancipation of women.

In September 2014, Lagerfeld reminds us of Coco’s legacy – by having his models storm across a rebuilt street in the Grand Palais in Paris at the end of the Chanel show as an attractive horde of young women, protesting for women’s rights. The audience became very sentimental and many felt reminded of their youth, the younger ones enjoyed the revival and the cheeky sayings.

Karl Lagerfeld is committed to feminism.

Is Karl Lagerfeld a worthy successor?

The sales figures speak for themselves! Since Lagerfeld became chief designer, sales figures have skyrocketed. But Lagerfeld is of the opinion that Coco hated his designs. Lagerfeld had complete freedom to decide what he would do with the brand “If you can do something, that’s okay, if not, I’ll sell the store,” the owner told Lagerfeld. Despite the conviction that fashion goddess Coco Chanel would not be satisfied with his work, the world thinks differently. Lagerfeld has brought Coco’s convictions and values to the present day or modernised them. He varies colours, silhouettes, jacket and skirt lengths, uses new fabrics and accessories, replaced the classic braids with fringes and presented the Chanel costume in both the Haute-Couture and Prêt-à-Porter collections.

It’s time to be beautiful when the world gets too ugly

Lagerfeld decides to add a statement with the spring/summer collection 2018. His designs show the will to turn to beauty instead of despairing of all the ugliness in the world. The sometimes soft and sometimes bright colours illustrate the lightness of the collection. An interplay of transparent silk tulle and a heavily embroidered, textured tweed then pushes it to the top.

However, Lagerfeld not only designs “pretty things” with his collection, he also thinks up new forms. Skirt parts on the dress, which suddenly only start from the middle of the thigh, frills only on the sides. The ruffles are broken through in the middle by a glittering triangle or midi dresses are covered with a transparent veil. In the collection, Lagerfeld Chanel re-designs without losing the old, which is once again met with great enthusiasm.

Coco Chanel changed the fashion world forever, her legacy was inherited from Lagerfeld and is still being treated today. And once again Lagerfeld has proved with his new cut and colour combinations that he is a worthy successor by refusing to bow to ugliness. And as Coco Chanel liked to say, “elegance is refusal”.

Chassis For Men: Powder instead of deodorant spray for the intimate zone – Sport & Business

Intimate care for the bottom – Between us men and in private! Today it’s 37°. I just saw a large group of young girls jogging by. None of them looked like it was hot. I, on the other hand, have just come from sport, dripping with sweat and yes, it doesn’t feel pleasant. The girls, on the other hand: Fresh as if they’d just taken off. I still hung my gym bag around half-heartedly, but knew, for the whole summer, I need a plan against unpleasant sweat, no matter whether at the editorial meeting without air conditioning or after the sport.

I’m definitely not the classic deodorant spray fan, so I went to YouTube once to look for new trend products from the USA – they always have a solution for everything, why not for that. At some point I often met Chassis For Men. The world’s biggest perfume youtuber Jeremy Fragrance, entrepreneur and men’s model, but also kickboxing world champion Michael Smolik talks about Chassis For Men. If two experienced men and experts celebrate the product, perhaps I should test it once?

Done, with Amazon Prime it was already in my mailbox the next day and for the training in the evening I could test it directly once.

The Clou of Chassis For Men

Most deodorant sprays often cause unpleasant residues or stick together. Stop it!

Thanks to powder no skin irritations and 24 hours protection

The powder from Chassis For Men, on the other hand, is very easy to apply on portable, dry powder products. No unpleasant coolness, no sticking, directly ready for the sport! Chassis For Menhat has developed the product especially for high demands – just like for real world champions. It also dispenses with many of the ingredients that are commonplace in most deodorant sprays, especially the cheap ones. Powder is not only more pleasant to apply, it also feels very natural and light. There’s no spray feeling from an extra layer. The intimate zones, perfectly dry, even for more demanding exercises.
Chassis For Men: freshness for top and bottom

Chassis For Men Premium Body Powder: Optimized for men and especially for the intimate zone:

Ingredients of Chassis For Men

Of course, it is not only important to me that his product works perfectly, but also that it has no harmful ingredients for me. Here is the list of the Chassis For Men ingredients.

    • Hamamelis – “Hamamelis has an astringent effect; it helps to care for and protect the skin. It is also used to reduce irritations caused by mild skin abrasions”

Aloe Vera – “Aloe Vera is a succulent plant known for its healing, calming and rejuvenating properties. It is often used for its anesthetic, antiseptic, antibacterial and skin regenerating effects.”

  • also pumpkin seeds (sounds kind of tasty)
  • Hop (always works for us men)
  • Allantoin (moisture regulation and peeling effect)
  • uvm.

The Promise:

The first and only premium men’s care line specifically formulated for better performance “down there”. Working together, our products keep guys fresh, dry, and friction-free all day long.

My description wasn’t that good, so here are the most important facts about Chassis For Men: It is the finest body powder in the world – specially developed for men, as it says when looking at the description in Amazon. In addition, it is the longest lasting powder with the so-called “Hydro-Shield technology”. It soothes and cools irritated skin without talc, aluminium, parabens or menthol. And of course there is also a little bit of power for all of us men: namely the power extract mixture with hops, pumpkin seeds, aloe, witch hazel and oat flakes. By the way, a few days ago I discovered a mega cereal bar, with oats! More about the delicious Trouser pocket muesli” from Hafervoll.

Business – Sweat is a No-Go for men!

Maybe you know it too? Always on the move to the next meeting, whether it’s an editorial meeting, an interview, a fashion show, an airport or a hotel. No matter when you meet people, customers or even employees, especially in industries that pay attention to the outside, not only in fashion magazines but also in real estate, fashion itself, advertising or media, your own self must be right. It does not only depend on a good body feeling and outfit, also not only on a chic hairstyle or the suitable accessories in the form of high-quality or luxurious watches. Let’s be honest, also the body odor must be right! Chassis For Men has only been available in Germany for a few weeks now and worldwide, for sure. The product has already enjoyed great success in the USA, where the biggest youtuber promote the new men’s beauty product, as well as Alpha M.

Alpha M. x Chassis For Men (USA)

Here you find the Alpha M. Youtube Channel, civil Aaron Marino.

Sport and fitness exercises do not have the greatest focus when it comes to preventing unpleasant smells or sweat: It’s all about Business. Berlin, Cologne, London, Shanghai, you are always on the move and at the end of the day or even right in the middle of it, you always have to be perfectly styled for the appointment. What good is the best styling if we feel uncomfortable about ourselves, e.g. unpleasant body odours? The more insecure we feel about ourselves, the more uncertainty we spread in our daily lives, private lives, but also in business appointments.

That is why it is important to develop beauty products for men who keep their promises. The world’s largest and most successful perfume Youtuber Jeremy Fragrance has also included the product in its YouTube channel. Of course, every youtube meticulously ensures that the products advertised are the best of the best. Because nobody would follow them if they gave bad tips!

Fitness Sports: The good life

After a long working day, sometimes even in the morning, we go to the gym! For a quick training session, without much distraction and with absolute focus on the training equipment. As I have just written, my day sometimes looks stressful, which you may know from your own profession. When it comes to my sports exercises now, it is directly double load and of course double developments of sweat.

The more the better? Some women say that they are attracted to a man’s light sweat smell, but I don’t feel so attractive myself, so I need something effective against sweat development, even in the intimate area. After Jeremy Fragrance shot a chassis over Nivea, I found this one from Michael Smolik, the current kickboxing world champion. If the heavyweight kickboxing world champion isn’t a reference for us men, who is?

Michael Smolik Video, Kickboxing World Champion x Chassis For Men

Chassis For Men is now also available in Germany!

Two strong men have convinced me on Chassis For Men’s YouTube – as I said, every youtuber takes care of the quality for his community. I have also tested it extensively! Everything wonderful and top, only the price you have to be able to afford. Currently a Chassis For Men can costs just under 18 €. That sounds a lot at first, but you have many days and weeks of stress-free time from unpleasant smells, which disturb you, for example in the intimate area. A topic that we absolutely had to discuss today, among us men, in private!

Chassis For Men: Fresh into the summer

Invisalign: The way to beautiful teeth – #1 experience with cost, duration and process

Invisalign in the Smile Club – Beautiful straight teeth, a theme that for many people belongs to the ideal of beauty and absolute “must have”. However, this has always been associated with painful treatments or braces. A price that not everyone was willing to pay to make their dream of a beautiful smile come true. Today I report about my experiences and my way to perfect teeth. More about Invisalign Smile Club.

It starts with a smile

Everyone has one or two things to decide for themselves. Whether it’s the receding hairline or the protruding ears, it’s always been my teeth. Most outsiders think I’m crazy, because my teeth aren’t that crooked either, but even on something like that you always have a completely different view than strangers, which is why it’s always bothered me. I never liked smiling open-mouthed, so there are hardly any really smiling pictures of me.

I have often thought about alternatives, but my affinity to dentists was never really high and braces were out of the question for me. The pain, the limitations and of course the appearance, were decisive points for me not to let this treatment come into the closer selection. Unfortunately I didn’t find any other way to fix the bugs, so I had to put up with leaving it as it was and living with this flaw.

Invisalign – what is the & how does it even work?

One day, I found by chance on the Internet an ad of so-called Invisalign. It was about beautiful straight teeth, which of course immediately caught my attention. So I started researching and quickly found out how it all works. Invisalign work like a rack, but have enormous advantages over conventional wire braces. The Invisalign are a transparent splint that are specially manufactured for each patient. These move the teeth exactly like a normal rack, but first of all have the optical advantage that you can’t see them. It is removable, which also makes it easier to clean. Sport is possible with the Invisalign without problems and you can also drink with it. To eat, take out the splint. Spinach residues cannot get caught here either, as in normal braces. But one of the biggest advantages is that you don’t have pain and aren’t restricted by the treatment.

My experiences with Invisalign – the first treatment

Enthusiastic about my research, I found a practice near me that specializes in Invisalign. I had already made an appointment directly in the chic practice. The technique was explained to me again by a professional and for the first time I held an Invisalign in my hand. Super light, very pleasant and super inconspicuous. My enthusiasm continued. The dentist told me how a treatment works from scanning the teeth to wearing the splints. After my little introduction to the topic, I started the scan. I’m sure many of you remember that hated dental impression. A huge piece of modelling clay has to be stuck on my teeth for eternities I felt so that you can see the exact impression of my teeth. I reckoned with something like this when I was told to scan your teeth, but something completely different awaited me. With a small camera, which takes many photos in a row, my teeth were removed, while at the same time an exact model of my teeth gradually became visible on a screen. A very pleasant treatment that only lasted about 5 minutes. Afterwards I could see the before / after pictures directly on the monitor and thus also the result, which is to be obtained. This scan is sufficient to order the rails. Very progressive, innovative and above all uncomplicated! My mood was no longer subdued and I was excited about the new techniques.

Gen Y – Urban elegance and 100% Made in Italy

Discreet designs for everyday life, “black is the new black”! Today I want to introduce you a new fashion label from Italy – thanks Instagram. Unlike many, Gen Y does not rely on sparkling extras or bright colours but on simple designs, soft materials and elegance. Typical Italian! My name is Stephan, I like to wear simple designs in everyday life and rather an accessory or a piece of clothing that catches the eye. In summer the pockets are missing, of course, shorts, tank top, that’s it. But somewhere the mobile phone has to go in and the water and and and and. But with backpacks and bags I have the problem that a mix of elegance and fashion is hard to find. All have embroidered fancy logos or are too conspicuous for me. I didn’t want to search forever at 32 degrees downtown either: In sport, everything is a little too much of everything. But even in the big shopping houses in the city centre, from Zara to H&M, you won’t really find what you’re looking for. Instagram brought Gen Y to my attention! Already one hour later I had our Iva on the phone for a quick photo shoot, because I had the first samples sent to me directly! You can find the looks at: Gen Y Instagram.

Videos and shop with the Pieces you can find here on Gen Y.

The perfect summer look works this year with Espadrilles – styling tips

There are some shoes that represent casualness, sun, beach and sea as well as a relaxed attitude to life like hardly anything else. These include Espadrilles, which are experiencing a real fashion revival again this year and are scoring with a variety of facets.

Why summer and espadrilles are simply inseparable

The carefree feeling of life in the South, expressed in a shoe: these are espadrilles with their soles made of plant fibres such as hemp or jute. The shaft is mostly made of linen or cotton, this year there are also manufacturers who rely on leather. In any case, these are materials that are simply ideal for warm summer days. They can even be worn barefoot, most fabrics and leather are breathable and very pleasant to the skin.

Espadrilles are simply slip shoes and have no closure, making them very uncomplicated. On short distances and in dry and warm weather they are the perfect summer companion. They are also perfect for the holidays, after all the lightweights can be stored very well in the case and do not need much space.

The variety of models brings a wide range

While a few years ago the Espadrilles were mostly single-coloured and simple, this summer the shelves of the shoe brands contain numerous variants of Espadrilles (German). In addition to the classics in numerous colours, models with a wedge heel now score points. These have the advantage that they can also be worn very well by women who are not used to high heels. The continuous sole and the stable wedge heel guarantee these Espadrilles wedges a safe gait and optimum wearing comfort – even on different surfaces such as lawns, cobblestones and sand or lawns. Every woman is not only safe, but also comfortable on the go and shows a relaxed feminine touch in her outfit.

Another facet of this year’s models are also those with laces. These can be looped over the ankle and a part of the lower leg and score with a very feminine touch. Espadrilles, which are cut out like ballerinas in the forefoot area, can also be found in shoe shops. The result is a perfect mix of practical shoes with a touch of girl feeling.

Espadrilles style correctly

There are numerous models with different colours and styles. Perhaps this raises the question of how these can be combined correctly and well. The answer is simple, because the trendy summer shoes are best worn with light summer dresses or ankle-length trousers. Models with wedge heels are particularly suitable here, which make the foot visually slim and direct the view to the ankle.

Espadrilles with glitter effects and a small wedge heel are also very well suited in combination with a wide chiffon skirt for a summer barbecue party. The most suitable models are those in natural colours with a floral pattern and straps that extend from the heel to the cuffs. This optically lengthens the legs and creates a casual summery look. If you like it a bit more sporty in your outfit, you can also wear these shoes with a sporty outsole. It consists of a mix of bast and grooved rubber, which ensures a perfect stand on the lawn. Happy prints such as starlets or polka dots are very well suited here, which can be worn perfectly with a look of white shorts and light blue polo shirt.

Special look due to extravagant material

To style themselves for a relaxed fashion stroll in the city, fashionistas now reach for espadrilles made of fine leather. These are available in the natural colours beige, brown or black, as well as in light pastel colours. In addition, many models score with extras such as rivet trimming and platform soles. In addition, an elegant sheath dress is a daring break in style, but also a real eye-catcher this summer. Something special are Espadrilles made of satin, which shimmers and thus fits very well for a festive and at the same time casual look. Golden creoles and a black jumpsuit are a perfect match and make you feel good in summer. If you are looking for romance, Espadrilles is the right choice for you. Because the choice then simply falls on models with lace trimming, which with a tube jeans and a shirt with lace trimming result in a perfect look.

Correct care

As casual as the shoes may seem in summer, they are also sensitive to care. Basically Espadrilles are made to slip in barefoot. If it is particularly warm, however, cotton boots can also be worn underneath. These absorb moisture and minimize odour nuisance. We always recommend barefoot soles. If they are dirty and stink, they can be washed easily. If the espadrilles have to be cleaned, moisture or wetness must be used sparingly. The soles dry very slowly. It is therefore better to ventilate the shoes regularly. Coarse impurities or dust are removed with a brush. If actual stains are present, the textile can be cleaned with a soft cloth and soapy water. However, subsequent drying should not take place under direct sunlight.

Berlin Fashion Week S/S 2019: Review of Shows & Fashion Pieces

Fashion Week is back! With impressive 32° degrees and star designers like Guido Maria Kretschmer but also Hugo Boss is back. We were there for you: 4 days S/S 19 (Spring-Summer collections for 2019). Berlin Fashion Week runs from Monday to Thursday and shows various shows by designers at the mainstage and various smaller side venues. Most of the hustle and bustle takes place on the Main Stage. Here are four to five fashion designer shows a day. International? Unfortunately not, Berlin Fashion Week is far away from the fashion weeks in London, Paris, Milan or New York. Nevertheless: A real highlight, especially in summer, when Berlin shows itself from its most beautiful sides. And this year, we were really lucky: 30°, 31° and 32° – thanks to air conditioning, doable. Whether big fashion magazines like Vogue in InStyle, the strongest fashion designers from Berlin and Germany or also bloggers, VIPs, musicians and actors. This week all meet to celebrate in Berlin and fashion. From the boutique owner who looks at the fashion fairs around Seek and Premiere or Influencer and fashion magazines at the shows – there’s something for everyone. I take you today, also every day and our highlights of the Berlin Fashion Week S/S 2019.

+ AD + Do you know?

First, here are the highlights and failures of Fashion Week S/S 19

Highlights and failures of Fashion Week S/S 19

For me, Fashion Week S/S 19 can summarize you like this

Top: Fashion Week back in Berlin Mitte

  • Main Stage Location back in Berlin Mitte, near Potsdamer Platz / Mall Of Berlin / Bundesrat
  • strong designers from Berlin with established and newcomers
  • Stage full seated (no standing room) and great sound in industrial buildings

Fail! No lounge, no electricity (mobile phone), no water

  • Networking used to be: Please don’t stay too long! No drinks from ever popular Jules Mumm and no water for spectators (32° degrees outside temperature). Drinks bought at the location may not be taken along, drinks in bags already – eh? We had to refill our purchased water bottles into plastic cups first, on instruction. Back at the entrance we had to throw them away, “you can’t take them in”. In my pocket are two glass water bottles – ok.
  • Rebelpin Fashion Awards by Acte – Puh, later you read more, that’s boring. Welcome to the year 1970! The Design Award (Europe-wide) is certainly a great idea, the presentation, the show, the performance of the presenter and the jazz band – disaster! It’s only stupid when you can’t walk for 45 minutes. Conclusion: Buy a Spotify subscription!

Shows: Guido Maria Kretschmar, rebekka ruétz, Lana Müller, Ivanman and I’VR

Anyone who knows Berlin Fashion Week and has already visited a few seasons knows that quality varies from year to year. Sometimes you meet in beautiful locations and sometimes in shady locations, for example in Berlin Wedding. This year they decided to go downtown again. Great idea! As in 2015, at that time still at the Brandenburg Gate, very chic, a real highlight. Shortly afterwards we went to the Erika-Hess-Eisstadion (prefabricated building in Wedding) and then to the department store Jahndorf (no style, XY building in Berlin). Fashion needs a nice environment, of course. Therefore a great idea to go back to Berlin Mitte! After all, you meet friends, colleagues and many new people you would never have met otherwise in the office or in the editorial office. Well, we’re back in.

Day 1+2: Fashion Week has to wait, no Guido

Day 1 consisted for me first of a lecture, still far away from the Berlin – influencer marketing – then it went Tuesday morning by express into the capital. That’s why Monday and the weekend before had to be cancelled, which is very practical to “arrive” in Berlin. Unfortunately, we also missed a real highlight that Guido Maria Kretschmar had already created for OTTO. Very everyday fashion from the star designer. Here are some highlights of the GMK x OTTO Show in Berlin:

Highlights: Guido Maria Kretschmar x OTTO

We finally arrived in Berlin – 11.51 pm, at least on Tuesday. Quickly into the apartments and in a few hours our Fashion Week Berlin S/S 19 starts with great shows by rebekka ruétz, old friends like Ivanman but also new highlights like Lana Müller and the always charming (every show a highlight, you will see later) I’VR: Isabel Vollrath.

Day 3: Rebekka Ruétz and Model Agency Casting

Instead of the usual plane ride, this time we went to Berlin in a van – full of cameras, photographer, videographer, editorial staff and me! Parallel to Fashion Week there are many more to experience: Photoshootings with international models who travel especially to Berlin or also model castings. The first appointment: The Model Casting of Cocaine Models at Alexander Platz in the House Of Weekend. Parallel to Fashion Week the agency was looking for models – Curvy, High Fashion – we are there! Over 250 pre-registrations, including 50 invitations and three hours for small talk, catwalk and posing. Phew, before that we went to the wonderful Rebekka Ruétz, to the Spring-Summer 2019 show:

Colors, so many colors. While many designers in their S/S 19 rely on muted tones, white, beige, the new fashion collection for the coming spring/summer season from rebekka ruétz brings colour accents. Matching the title of the collection: MAKE LOVE GREAT AGAIN, my first show of the season, in Berlin, since we were on the road in southern Germany before. All the better that it is directly rebekka ruétz, who we have accompanied for a long time and are always looking forward to her presentation. Not only we wanted to see the new collection, but also prominent guests like Alexandra Polzin, Annabelle Mandeng, Bahar Kizil, Caro Cult, Eva Nürnberg, Kathi Wörndl, Katrin Wrobel, Lea Mornar, Marie von den Benken (columnist), Rolf Scheider (casting director and former GNTM jury member), Stephanie Stremler and Tanja Bülter. The highlights of the show:

Curvy Models – Strong theme! Not only men bloggers Riccardo Simonetti was looking for Curvy Models at the Berlin Fasion Week for a show in Hamburg, also Cocaine Models was from the game and was looking for new top models over the rooftops of Berlin (House of Weekend) from 19-22 o’clock. High Fashion & Plus Size. At the casting were also 3 Germany’s Next Topmodels of the current season, plus a camera team from RTL and the top location: The House of Weekend.

Day 4: Ivanman, Lana Müller and I’VR Isabel Vollrath

Day three was the start of our shows this year. Ivanman was one of the very few highlights at Berlin Fashion Week for men. The bag is packed, here we go. Today, our editor Natascha and two friends or bloggers. Perfect weather, 32°, blue sky. The first and only show for men’s fashion, upcoming for Spring/Summer 2019.

Ivanman – jacket, jacket, coat

block rate>style ranking: 7.9 / 10

We have been accompanying Ivanman since the beginning and are looking forward to his shows every year. Because he shows cuts that are wearable for Fashion Victoms, but also a few Pieces that are over the top. But for Berlin Mitte, Hamburg or the short trip to London and Paris is just the right thing! For the S/S 19 Ivanman uses colours, blue and red. The show convinces with strong, striking faces of the male models and a strong beat that accompanies the show from beginning to end, without interruption.

Here are my highlights from Ivanman for you:

We visited Lana Müller for the very first time, we were very curious to see her first collection at the Berlin Fashion Week. My highlight by Lana Müller? Super wearable fashion, very chic, airy and a look in which everyone would like to see their girlfriend. The show starts with singer, the transition is seamless. Basses fill the room, showtime starts! All in all a strong first appearance and here we have all highlights of the S/S 19 collection of Lana Müller in Berlin.

I’VR – Isabel Vollrath: A breeze of calm and elegance

style ranking: 9.1 / 10 + extra point for’enchant’

After Lana Müller put another topping for the evening? Welcome to I’VR. Every season, I’VR enchants with little special features that not all fashion designers at Fashion Week think of. For example, Seating Cards. In the cards, you will find some information about the new collection, the materials and the thoughts under which the collection was created. A great idea, because it can take 30, 40 minutes from the entrance to the beginning of a fashion show – if you’re unlucky. It might be a clever idea to appear shortly before the event, but on the other hand the best places will be filled. I’ve been waiting for about 20 minutes now – and I’d like to point out the “No drinks in the show” problem this season. I’m dying of thirst! But I’VR can’t help that. Fashion Week planning is. Luckily I have two water bottles in my bag and another orange juice from the Mall Of Berlin. At least the supermarkets in the area benefit from the “drinks” ban. Let’s go: I’VR!

Lights out, spotlight on. The sound of the sea, how nice. A quiet, slightly rising bass feels the rows and the hall. The first model, elegant, almost floating, light fabrics, the sound of the sea, a very magical moment after three days of hustle and bustle. Like every year: I’VR enchants! Thank you for the moment! A great show with many highlights, here are a few pieces we really want to show you!

Runway Show: Highlights from the catwalk

We are still waiting for the cut of the current S/S 19, as long as Isabel Vollrath’s last show at Berlin Fashion Week.

Rebelpin Fashion Awards by Acte: Get a Spotify Abo – Fail!

style raking: 3.2 / 10

Can I be angry? The moderation would have fit perfectly into the Federal Chancellery (directly opposite), with an audience of around 60, politicians, professors… at an evening gala. But not here! It’s Fashion Week, come on! Welcome to the year 1970, as you look at the Rows across the street, one yawn after another.

Apart from that, the designers and their collection pieces (3 each) were really great and varied. From the absolutely wearable to the fashion made for shows. But…

The opening moderation is agonizingly long, far from modern and light years from a fashion week! Long, seven minutes later it should finally start. And the band, is it staying or was the 70s music just for the boring moderation? They stay. No! Already at the first fly (run of the models) and the feeling: Get away! Unfortunately, the exit is on the other side and we would have to walk over the catwalk, in front of all the people, photographers and the boring moderation. Right now, I take my notebook and start with the article. I’m flattened with boredom, the shows are already 35 minutes long and we are still not at the end.

Even after 42 minutes, I’m still torturing myself. In front, a 60-year-old man speaks into the microphone with a low voice. Somebody here, somebody there. Drumroll from the 70s drums. Stop at that spot! Fiasco! For next year: Please engage a person who knows about moderation and fashion. Someone with friends, someone to watch and please: Get a Spotify subscription! I’ve had enough of jazz, that’s enough. I can’t take any more. Over and out, please!

But no – and I won’t bother you – now there were prizes in three categories and of course everyone wants to say something else, some vice president from somewhere. Monotone, without emotion. Next time I’ll make you a video, post on our YouTube channel and whenever you can’t fall asleep, check out Rebelpin’s moderation.

Fashion Week S/S 2019 Berlin: Well done!

Fashion Week was short for me this season – but a real highlight in July 2018 – especially the new move to Berlin’s city centre has really paid off for the flair that fashion needs to be effective. The location, that E-Werk, really gives something away. The only small drawback is that there is no longer a large lounge where you can really network. Especially at such a fashion event! After all, you travel from Germany and all over Europe. There should always be a place to get to know each other.

Apart from that, Fashion Week was excellently organised. Even the decorative elements (palm trees) were right down to the last detail. It was also great in the new location that there are no more standing places, but everything fills up in the row of seats. So everyone has the possibility to take a seat and does not have to wait long in a standing position. Very important for us as editors!

Matching to it, also all shows, very well done (only on a choreography one should work, one turns on 3m in front of the photo wall, the other 5m, then 1m, turn left, turn right). The sound is right, the basses roll through the rows, variety, from deep house, to hard beats, to soft sea noise and relaxing music at I’VR. A good mix that makes the shows different and interesting.

Are we as good as London, Paris and Milan? Unfortunately not! Nevertheless, as every season, Berlin Fashion Week is worth a visit. Especially this season the event came back and was a lot of fun, nice location, well organized. Next: Düsseldorf + London.

The Bikini Trends 2018 – These are the beach highlights this year

This summer, women in this world will once again be able to attract attention at all costs! After our travel reports from Tokyo to Milan, today we look at the Bikini Trends 2018 and your must-haves for your holidays!

This year’s beachwear follows last year’s bikini trends and offers the right bikini for every woman. Most women are looking for a bikini that optimally underlines the figure and is a real eye-catcher. From the retro look of a high waisted bikini to brightly colored, hip-tight bikinis, the designers have a broad portfolio on offer to ensure that you conquer the beach this year. Most women go shopping again before a holiday or the bathing season. But especially when looking for a suitable bikini it is difficult to find the right model. The many colours, cuts and patterns do not make the selection easier. That’s why we’ve made it easier for you to choose and have compiled the 2018 bikini trends for you.

Trend #1 – The High Waisted Bikini

The High Waisted Bikini is one of the trends for the beach in 2018. The bikini panties, which reach to the waist, are particularly well suited to cover the problem zones at the hip and abdomen. If the High Waisted Bikini Panties is combined with a sexy and playful top, you get a real eye-catcher on the beach. Many other bikini trends this year can be combined with the High Waisted bikini panties to create a wonderful look for the beach. Even a belt on a high waisted bikini panty can highlight a playful and sexy bikini outfit.

Trend #2 – The color trends this year

A real trend of Fashion Designers are bright colors. Here it is said: The more conspicuous the better. But also fashion bloggers like Kim Kardashian contrast with colors like pastel, olive, nude or metallic and show the direction of bikini trends this year (German). Here it depends primarily on one’s own taste. If you just want a bikini to look sexy and graceful, dull colours like pastel or nude are more suitable, but if you want to attract all eyes, bright colours are exactly the right thing. Also retro-look stripes or flower patterns and fruits are totally IN this year.

Trend #3 – The Baywatch look is back

The 90s celebrate their comeback on the beach this year. The Frong, which consists of a one-piece with a particularly high leg neckline, is becoming more and more popular with designers and fashion bloggers this year. The simple swimsuit looks particularly sexy when lacings, patterns and cut outs come into play.

Colourful Kyoto – sake, shopping & imperial palace in the heart of Japan

Kyoto is located in the Kansai conurbation on the main island of Honshu in Japan. The city is located about 400 km from today’s capital Tokyo and 40 km from Osaka. About 1.5 million people live in Kyoto on an area of about 830 km². The former capital is surrounded on three sides by mountains, only the south is accessible – this area is also called Rakunan, the traditional access area of the city. Besides its wealth of temples and shrines, and numerous educational establishments, Kyoto is known for its sake production, silk textiles, the special Kyo-Yuzen dyeing technique and its outstanding cuisine.

Kyoto is the sister city of many world-famous cities, such as Prague, Paris, Florence, Zagreb, Kiev and Cologne. It also maintains an official partnership with Istanbul, Qingdao and Viantiane, among others. Read more about Japan’s metropolises Tokyo and Kobe.

The highlights of Kyoto in 4D

Kyoto is Japan’s number 1 destination for tourists from all over the world. The former capital offers so many different impressions and experiences, something new, exciting or unusual can be discovered in every corner of the city. From a bird’s eye view Kyoto is breathtakingly beautiful – Fushimi-Momomiya Castle and the paradisiacal mountain village Miyama are a real insider tip! Arashiyama has been a popular excursion destination since the 8th century and has lost nothing of its beauty to this day. The Zen Buddhist temple Tenryuji, for example, impresses with its beautiful gardens, designed by the famous Japanese Muso Soseki, who was the first abbot of the temple. At least as worth seeing is the small temple Senkoji. The river Hozu invites you to extensive sightseeing from a boat, while the Togetsukyo bridge may be familiar to some from historical Japanese films. Simply beautiful!

Kyoto 794 – the imperial residence

As “Heian-kyo” Kyoto was the second permanent capital of the country since 794. At that time, Japan’s political power essentially originated there, which is why it also served as the imperial capital. When the emperor moved to Tokyo 400 kilometres away in 1185, Kyoto lost its position of power and the slow and gradual decline of the city began. 1568 came with the first Christian place of prayer, Namban-ji, then also the Christian influence to Kyoto. Only in 1580 did the reconstruction of the city begin and the first temples were built within the city – this had previously been strictly forbidden. Kyoto recovered and flourished and was one of the few cities in Japan to be spared from nuclear bombs and air strikes during the Second World War due to its cultural importance.

Kyoto Cultural Center – nearly 1,600 temples and more

Today Kyoto is the best preserved city in the country and is known as the cultural centre of Japan. Inside the city there are about 1,600 Buddhist temples and another 400 Shinto shrines, palaces and gardens. Many of these shrines and temples are part of the UNESCO World Heritage Site “Historic Kyoto” and are therefore particularly protected. This is one of the reasons why many of the country’s most famous buildings are located in Kyoto. The most important sights are in the east, north and west of the city – the majority of the temples are a bit remote in the north and on the surrounding mountain slopes. Every year Kyoto hosts the “Gozan no Okuribi” festival – large fires are lit on the mountain tops in the north whose flames simulate Japanese characters seen from a distance.

Excessively polite in dialect

In Kyoto dialect is spoken, especially by the older inhabitants of the city. What distinguishes the Kyoto dialect from other language variants of Japanese is its strong historical influence, because here the old courtly culture is reflected in a form that cannot be found anywhere else but within the former capital. That is why the Kyoto dialect is also regarded as the higher variant of the generally regionally widespread Kansai dialect.

The most beautiful buildings in the 11 districts

The city of Kyoto is divided into 11 districts, all of which are worth a visit. – Because in every district there are beautiful temples and shrines and many other attractions and tourist destinations.

Fushimi – the best water of the country

The district of Fushimi is known for its particularly soft and clear water, which is of great importance for sake production. That’s why this is also where sake producer Gekkeikan is based. Also worth seeing are the Fushimi Inari Shrine, Fushimi Castle, Teradaya Inn, Gokogu Shrine and the ruins of Yodo Castle.

Kamigyo – from Imperial Palace to University Campus

The high-quality silk textile Nishijin-Ori has been produced in the district of Kamigyo for centuries. The old architecture of the Imperial Palace as well as various temples and shrines, including the temple of Shokoku-ji and the shrines of Kitano Tenman-gu and Seimei, meet modern structures such as the Imadegawa Campus of Doshisha University.

Kita – golden pavilion and oldest shrine in Japan

Kita belonged to the district of Kamikyo until 1955 and is rich in sights. Here is the Daitoku-ji and the Imamiya Shrine with its famous Yasurai Festival and Japan’s oldest shrine, the Kamo Shrine. There is also the golden pavilion Kinkaku-ji, the mountain Funaokayama and four large universities.

Higashiyama – National Museum Kyoto

The entertainment district of Gion is located in the heart of Higashiyama. There are numerous temples including Kiyomizu-dera, Tofuku-ji, Kennin-ji, Kodai-ji, Imakumano Kannon-ji and Sanjusangen-ji.

Minami – the southern city entrance

Until 1955 the municipality was still part of the Shimogyo district. Minami is located in the south of Kyoto, the only area of the city that is not bordered by mountains. Here is the former southern entrance to the city, Rajomon, as well as the famous temple complex To-Ji, where monk Kukai taught. By the way: Minami is home to the Zainichi, a population group with Korean roots.

Nakagyo – the tourist center of the city

The district of Nakagyo is located in the city centre of Kyoto and is therefore also the hub for administration, consumption, tourism and entertainment. Three of the city’s most famous festivals are held annually in Nakagyo: the Aoi-Matsuri, the Gion-Matsuri and the Jidai-Matsuri. Of particular note in Nakagyo are Nijo-jo Castle, Tokugawa’s former seat of the Shogunate, the Rokaku-do Temple, rebuilt after a devastating fire in 1877, and the Kyoto International Manga Museum.

Nishikyo – the Imperial Katsura Villa

The district of Nishikyo is of particular importance because of the imperial Katsura Villa, which was built over the Katsura river of the same name. The old moss temple Saiho-ji and the Yoshimine-dera are also located here.

An ode to Katsura Rikyu

Sakyo – rice fields and botanical garden

The district of Sakyo is very close to nature. It is the only district of Kyoto that has been able to preserve its rice fields and prevent new development areas and high-rise buildings due to urban planning restrictions. The wood industry has also been a constant in Sakyo for many years. Besides temples and shrines like Ginkaku-ji, Nanzen-ji, Kamo Shrine, Heian-Jingu Shrine, Kurama-dera, Kifune-jinja, Sanzen-ji and Manshuin Temple there is the Imperial Villa Shugakuin and the botanical garden of Kyoto. The Kyoto International Conference Center, in which the famous Kyoto Protocol to the climate protection agreement was adopted, and the Kyoto University for Art and Design are also located here.

Shimogyo – Shopping, Travel, Rivers

Shimogyo is home to the large Kyoto railway station and the city’s largest shopping district at the corner of Shijo Street and Kawaramachi Street. Three rivers flow through the district and the famous Kyoto Tower rises far beyond the city.
Ukyo – Bridge to the Moon

The temple complex Ninna-ji, the Zen temple Ryoan-ji, Daikaku-ji as well as Koryu-ji and the bridge with the mystical name “Bridge to the Moon”, Togetsu-kyo are located in this district. The Kyoto Prefecture University is also located here. By the way: Ukyo is also seen as the centre of the Japanese film industry and is home to one of the two film studios Toeis.

Yamashina – the oldest imperial tomb of Kyoto

Yamashina station is only one stop from Kyoto station in Shimogyo. As a former imperial residence, a number of emperors have of course also been buried in Kyoto. In fact, the oldest imperial tomb in the city, the tomb of Emperor Tenji, together with that of General Sakanoue no Tamuramaro and other important historical figures are located in the Yamashina district. The famous Oishi Shrine is also located here.

University City Kyoto – Studying at the highest level

Due to its status as a university city, Kyoto is home to many young people, but in fact the students are not only city residents and regional residents, they come from all parts of the country to study at one of the approximately 40 universities and colleges in the city. Since the opening of the first Shinkansen line in 1964, Kyoto can also be reached by high-speed trains, which makes commuting much more pleasant. The main station in Shimogyo was completely rebuilt and modernised in 1997, which makes it more attractive to the young population, but in the eyes of many it is too much in contrast to the traditional Kyoto architectural style.

Japan’s Top 5 Universities & Colleges

According to a foreign ranking of Japanese universities and colleges from April 2018, the national universities of Tokyo, also known as Todai, and Kyoto, aka Kyodai, ranked first for the first time together; until now, the national university of the capital was considered Japan’s undefeated top university. In the 2018 global ranking, however, Todai is still one step ahead; with 46th place on the world list of universities, it is 28 places ahead of Kyodai (74th). By the way: the universities of Oxford, Cambrige and Stanford occupy places 1-3 in the worldwide ranking.

The three pillars of Kyoto – Tourism, Tradition & Modernity

1. tourism

Its long-lasting architecture and the many historical sites of Kyoto make the city Japan’s most popular tourist destination. In fact, tourism is the city’s main source of income and the tourist infrastructure is well developed here.

2. traditional handicraft

There are also many small businesses and family businesses dedicated to traditional Japanese crafts, for example Kyoto is famous for its silk manufacture and the production of kimonos, which are often worn here for festive occasions, but also in everyday life. A very special dyeing technique, called Kyo-Yuzen, was passed down from the 17th century and was developed many years ago by Yuzen Miyazaki in Kyoto. Outside Kyoto there are few practitioners, most of them in Kanazawa – but even within the city, Kyo-Yuzen is only used by a few.

3. electronics

The third pillar, besides sake production of course, is electronics. The headquarters of renowned companies such as Nintendo, Murata Eletronics, OMRON, Wacoal, Kyocera and many others are located in Kyoto. Nevertheless, many of the working population have to commute daily to Osaka, 40 km away, since the jobs in the city centre are no longer sufficient.

Eating in Kyoto – a culinary feast for all the senses

Kyoto is also famous for its excellent cuisine. The stylish, often simple dishes focus on mainly vegetable ingredients such as pickled vegetables, called tsukemono. Many vegetables, which are seasonally found in the city’s specialities, come from the immediate vicinity of Kyoto and are known for being somewhat smaller in growth, but also significantly more intense in taste than in the rest of Japan, thus giving Kyoto cuisine a very special touch. By the way: a popular souvenir from Kyoto is the candy Yatsuhashi.
Most poular: Nama Yatsuhashi

Kaiseki Ryori – luxury dinner in several courses

Kaiseki Ryori is a multi-course and often expensive menu whose origins lie in the traditional tea ceremony. In the course of time it enjoyed great popularity at the Imperial Court and became increasingly pompous and extravagant. A variant of Kaiseki Ryori is Kyo Kaiseki, which is primarily based on seasonal vegetables from the Kyoto region.
Shojin Ryori – pleasurable modesty

The Shojin Ryori comes from the abstinent monks in Buddhist temples. The simple dishes consist exclusively of vegetarian ingredients, but are still rich and filling. A popular example of Shoji Ryori is a vegetable broth with tofu, called yudofu.

Obanzai Ryori – Food like Mum

The Obanzai Ryori is originally traditional cooking at home. Typically it consists of several small dishes that are not very complex to prepare. Restaurants that specialize in Kyoto cuisine often create a homely atmosphere to create a sense of home and togetherness among their guests.

Kawayuka – Food above the water

Kawayuka or Kawadoko refers to food in nature. But not somewhere, but on wooden platforms floating above rivers! These platforms are built by restaurants all over Kyoto during the summer season as a kind of terrace over rivers and streams, offering a refreshing alternative to stuffy restaurants and oppressive heat. The culinary district of Pontocho in the city centre is particularly suitable due to its proximity to the Kamogawa River, but also the two mountain villages Kibune and Takao in the mountains north of Kyoto invite you to Kawadoko from May to September – an absolute recommendation!

Fashion Week Sydney – My Personal Experiences and Experiences

I have been living in Sydney for more than a month now and can say that it is an incredibly horny city. Not only the weather, but also the people, the air and the vibe give you an incredible life energy! Just before Fashion Week, this vital energy was transformed into a huge anticipation. I hadn’t looked forward to a week as much as I did to the #MBFW Australia 2018! As a backpacker I was very limited in my selection of outfits and actually had nothing reasonable for the fashion week, so I was kindly provided with outfits for Fashion Week by the International Fashion Group. Many thanks for that!

On the month 14.05.2018 I finally started to the Fashion Week to visit my first show. Of course I was extremely excited because I didn’t know a single person at Fashion Week. But luckily this has changed in no time at all! On the first day I was still alone and very lost, but on the second day I met two stylists from Melbourne, a model and a social media star from Sydney, whom I can now count among my friends. With these, Fashion Week was even more fun than I had actually thought. Unlike Fashion Week in Berlin, Fashion Week in Sydney is centrally structured. That means the shows are, with few exceptions, all in the same place. This makes it very comfortable for the visitors, because you don’t have to change places between shows all the time. I also felt that the #MBFW Australia was much smaller than any other fashion week I had visited before. After 2 days I had already seen all visitors, photographers, models and bloggers. All in all it was an extremely cool week in which I got to know a lot of nice people and gained experience! Oh…Almost forgotten… The fashion was of course also very cool 😀 But more about that in the next section!

The most bizarre trends in Down Under 2018

On this topic I have to say right at the beginning that fashion in Australia is not as bizarre as I imagined it to be. Of course there were outfits there, which are very unique. But even that I would wear. And anyone who knows me knows that I dress rather simply and in street style. By the way… I was even on the cover of the best streetstyle of #MBFW Australia 2018 on the GQ Australia website.

But now back to the topic Trends in Down Under 2018: The video below shows a small excerpt from the St George Nextgen Show. The colours yellow, green and orange are often used. The neck is always covered, whether by a scarf or a turtleneck sweater. Personally, I really like this style. It’s something different and stands out from the normal black, white, grey street style. Besides the shows of Double Rainbow, Blair Archibald and Justin Cassin I liked this show the best. But maybe it was simply because men’s outfits were introduced. Almost all the other shows were about women.

But I would also like to deal with that. For this I fade in here again a short video of the show The Innovators. The outfit shown here represents the women’s fashion at #MBFW Australia 2018 very well! A lot of work is done with white. The small details are very beautifully worked out. Furthermore, the outfits are often played with sex appeal.

Personalities at the #MBFW Fashion Week 2018 in Sydney

As I already told in the article above, the first day was really shitty… I didn’t know anyone at the Fashion Week in Australia… Unfortunately there was no opportunity to meet people either. But there are days like that. The most important thing is not to be discouraged and simply to continue. Tuesday, the second day, was much better. I had met several models, stylists and journalists. Everything went like a pyramid scheme and within one day I got to know 50% of the people who were at the Fashion Week in Sydney. Among them were many photographers, bloggers and models. My closest friends include Caspar Thomas (@caspar_thomas), Phillip Robert Holmes (@philliprobert) and Charlie Taylor (@charlietaylor). The most famous person was Matthew David Johnson (@matthewdavidjohnson), the Bachelor Australia of last season, with whom I talked briefly. On Instagram I saw Tammy Hembrow (@tammyhembrow 8.2m Followers) visiting the GIA show. But I was already at home, maybe next time… 😀

A week full of stress – Fashion Week

For me, not a week has been as stressful as the Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Australia 2018 in Sydney. I met so many people this week and experienced so much that I can’t remember everything. I was at Fashion Week from Monday to Thursday morning to evening and took almost every show with me. Even if I have to wait a bit until I have the next big event, I am very happy that this week is finally over! Now it’s time to review and evaluate all the photos, videos, impressions and contacts!

Oats – Snack to go! Muesli for your pocket #spotted in the supermarket

Today I stood in the supermarket and at the checkout a new product appeared, Hafervoll. Usually I don’t pay so much attention to new products but here the design was so cute, sweet and appealing that you almost have to look at it by yourself! A real eye-catcher. Of course I had to buy a bar to see if it really is as tasty as it looks. Energy for everyday life and sports: You know the story. The selection: Apricot/poppy, protein/walnut or date/chia/pistachio. Creative!

+ AD + Do you know?

Oat-full? If it’s new, I must have it!

The cereal for your pocket. Okay? Sounds interesting! Especially after sports, whether in the gym or basketball, you lost energy. Often you reach for a cereal bar, in the supermarket, at the gas station or in the kiosk around the corner. Most of the bars I know are full of sugar or preservatives. That’s why I prefer “real” muesli and oatmeal when I want to eat something tasty. Add a few tasty nuts or a few slices of fresh fruit. Already I have my perfect snacks for in between!

Looks like: Power Food for breaks between work, friends and sport

Many of you know the daily situation from Monday to Friday, there is so much work but little time. In between, of course, we try to eat healthily. We go to the next small salad shop and buy something tasty, until we are back in the office, the break is almost over. Of course we do without sweets, donuts or the delicious chocolate mochacino during the lunch break. Why? We have to stay fit for the rest of the day. Projects have to be completed, customers wait… phew. Not only stress at work, but also at the end of the day, after sport. And then my girlfriend wants to go out for dinner and sometimes I go into town with the guy… where’s time for a good snack?

Snack to go instead of McDonald’s, Burger King & Co

In addition, one rarely finds good snack to go in the city: everywhere there are only Burger King, McDonald’s, doner shops and fast food. Again? No. And I could probably name ten more reasons that ultimately lead me to optimise my everyday life a little more.
My insider tip: milkshake, bananas and delicious toppings

At the beginning of the year I fell in love with simple milkshakes! It’s super easy and everything is quickly cleared away. I have always had a good supply of bananas and toppings (berries, lemon, etc.) for a long time, so I can, for example, make a healthy shake immediately after exercise. In a banana there are many minerals and vitamins, you wouldn’t believe it. Small mixed in a milkshake, an absolute dream. Add a few other fruits or a little lemon for that special little kick.

I like it! Oats is my snack for the summer

Practically there is the nearest supermarket in Berlin but also in Cologne at every corner. And meanwhile I also find this small, tasty snack in my trouser pocket more and more often. Meanwhile I almost got used to buying one all the time, because the variety is really fantastic. Hafervoll does not have all these standard products around strawberry or chocolate. It’s all about true creativity and variety, from apricots and poppies to sour cherries and hemp seeds. There are always new variations of the delicious cereal bars on the market. So they don’t get boring at all, but there is always something new to experience. When does something always have something “new”, especially when you constantly come across the same products in the supermarket?

A real insider tip that is finding more and more fans, also Joko Winterscheidt (famous German TV host):

Lisa And Lena: web video producers and influencers at the age of 15 – what more could you ask for? Exactly, the right music business. In June 2017 LeLi also released a song “Not my fault”.

Here you can listen to the new song of Lisa and Lena!

Cities, Meet and Greet and Fifa

So young, but experienced so much. Girls’ everyday life is certainly not for everyone. Sometimes they’re here, sometimes there. And in between? Before a performance in Oslo, a round of Fifa is a must. Then: pure excitement on the way to the stage, but as soon as they stand on the stage all the excitement is blown away. Like professionals for years, the girls welcome their fans and loyal followers. They let their fans get to them, hug them, take pictures and shoot Musical.lys. A day in Los Angeles looks different. With the guys from New Hope Club they spend a day at the beach. They play football in the sand, chat, exchange ideas and of course record Musical.lys. But a Meet and Greet is a must on such a relaxed day. Same scheme, the girls are great at their meetings with the fans. They are beaming over both ears and are totally thrilled by the affection and attention of their fans.
