Your holiday can start while packing your suitcase: So everything fits and remains wrinkle-free

The beginning of the annual holiday is approaching. Just the right time to deal with travel preparations such as packing a suitcase. Two questions are in the foreground: What belongs in the suitcase? How do I store the luggage as effectively as gently? We want to give you tips and suggestions on the most important aspects and reveal a trick on how textiles with light wrinkles become smooth again even without an iron.

Basically, the luggage can be divided into five categories:

  • Documents / Key
  • first aid kit
  • Personal Care and Cosmetics
  • Clothing
  • Accessories / Technology

It is important to make copies of all documents and place them in different pieces of luggage. Thus, in case of loss, an emergency replacement is always available. In addition, important medicines should be in hand luggage when traveling by air. Otherwise, all jars, tubes and vials above the 100 milliliter limit are in the suitcase.

So much clothes should be there

The choice of clothing depends largely on individual factors such as personal needs, travel needs and local circumstances. A few basic structures have also proven themselves in very different situations:

  • On underwear and socks / stockings, at least one set should be included per day of travel.
  • Also the stock of t-shirts, polo shirts and shirts for men respectively Tops and blouses for the women should allow a daily change.
  • Trousers, skirts and dresses can usually be worn multiple times with a break of one day for airing. Does not mind, is sufficient for short trips every two days and for longer stays every three days a part.
  • Blazers, jackets and other jackets are packed according to personal needs. This also applies to headgear.
  • Depending on the nature of your trip, shoes for beach, city strolls, Outdoor activities, party, special occasions and of course needed for the room.
  • There are also sports and swimwear. Again, make sure that there is always at least one spare set in your luggage.
  • In addition to sleepwear, washcloths and towels round off the travel range of textiles.

By the way: Especially with connecting flights, it can happen that the suitcase arrives with a slight delay. So that the stay then does not have to start with an emergency shopping, it makes sense to pack at least a complete clothing set in the on-board case.

Pack the suitcase properly

So that everything fits into the suitcase, you can use some tricks when packing . All clothing that is not susceptible to creases will be rolled up. Socks and / or stockings can be stuffed into the mirrored opposite shoes. The lower portion of the case is filled with these heavier or insensitive parts. A strong pressure to compress is quite allowed. In addition, gaps can be filled with small parts. On top come pants, skirts, dresses, jackets, blazers and similar textiles. They are placed in the suitcase so that they protrude alternately right and left beyond its limits. After that, they are placed one inside the other from top to bottom. At the top, best in a separate area come the neatly folded blouses and shirts. Here are the best non-iron or easy to iron models chosen to be placed between the tissue paper or fine towels. It is important to unpack the suitcase immediately upon arrival and to hang delicate textiles on a stirrup.

Conclusion: With a little preparation and the right packing technology, everything arrives safely

So it is not that difficult to get everything you need in your suitcase and to bring it to the destination with care. If there are a few wrinkles, that’s no problem. Tip: A shower after the exhausting journey not only refreshes. It can also help to eliminate slight wrinkles in the jacket, blazer and the like when they are briefly suspended in the bathroom.

Bonjour Paris! Fashion Week Paris – the latest trends of the new season

The fashion month is almost over and finds its conclusion and climax in the capital of France. The cream of the fashion industry is gathering this week to see the trends of the new season A / W 2018/19. Of course FIV Magazine is right in the middle and reports on the trends for the coming season!

Fashion Week Paris – my personal experiences

My journey started early Wednesday morning when I boarded the train from Cologne to Paris. With full anticipation in the luggage, I arrived in Paris and checked in first in my hotel. At the reception the first invitation to the show on Friday awaited me, which was deposited there for me. After unpacking and sorting after a small suitcase, we went straight to the city of love.

For my short trip, I was allowed to make a little stopover on Reservations before the departure on Tuesday and equip myself with some parts for the Fashion Week, because especially at a fashion event, the matching outfit is of course crucial. The new collection from Reserved is very trendy and characterized by eye-catching color accents, elegant fabrics and modern influences. Which parts I have chosen and how I combined them for the special event you can see in the videos + photos in this article.

In the following days a wild mix of typical Touri sightseeing, Fashion Week feeling, and great insider spots awaited me – you’ll learn more about that at the end of the article. Of course it is very important to have the right footwear for such an eventful trip. Personally, I am a human being, I wear almost always high shoes in everyday life, but I can not recommend this even for high-heels lover in a city trip, because you are running but more than you think and of course thank the feet the flat shoes. My luck – at Reserved I found quite a few super comfortable sneakers that proved to be perfect travel companions. Because they are not only comfortable, but also visually a highlight and something very special.

Paris is so much variety and variety that you would probably need weeks to look at all the highlights there. But my absolute favorite spots in the city have a special wow factor. The small island in the Seine, on which Notre Dame and Sainte-Chapelle are located, because especially in summer this small patch of earth is surrounded by so much magic. Small markets with an incredible selection of flowers and food, stroll along the banks of the Seine and just let your mind wander. This peace in a city that is still so big radiates from the Eifel tower. Strolling through the park or sitting in a small café and enjoying the sun on your skin makes Paris something special.

Last but not least, I still have some restaurant recommendations, as they have me so excited, of course, it is not difficult to find great restaurants in Paris, because they are there like sand on the sea, but these three I can for personal tests only recommend. Very close to the hotel I found by chance the pizzeria Lucky Luciano. The pizzas are a dream come true. I tasted the pizza with buffalo mozzarella and rucula – just great (and not overcrowded).
In a completely different corner, it was me for lunch. Directly at the Sacre Coeur is a great and above all local restaurant with traditional French food. There you get a menu (3 courses) already for 16 euros – and that is really a bargain for Parisian prices. I tasted French onion soup, traditional potato casserole and – how could it be otherwise – Crepe.

Fashion Week Paris – shows & the trends of the new season

Of course, the shows were the highlight of the trip, because in Paris means Fashion Week again something different, as in Berlin. Fancy outfits, special celebrities everywhere cameras and everything according to the motto: ‘See and be seen’. Not only the so-called “Buyers” visited the special events, but also a lot of press, special personalities, like Blogger and of course the fashionistas and real Parisienne of the city. With lots of kisses, old well-known people were greeted before the show and then, of course, the main topic of conversation was first of all the designer and guesses about the new collection. The collections were especially staged and thus presented the trends of the new season.

Uma Wang Show A / W 2018/19 – Warm Colors, Oversized & Unisex

The Uma Wang Show took place on the 1st of March in an impressive presentation. An old library in a still active school. The parts of the Asian designer were very unusual. Particularly eye-catching, the warm colors stung. Many red, beige and brown tones. Many parts were oversized, such as giant bags, coats, blazers and dresses. The women’s fashion was characterized by many masculine influences. Jackets, trousers and thick wool coats. The designer interprets the trends of the new season in a very own and creative way, thus keeping to her style.

Andrew Gn Fashion Show AW 2018/19 – Velvet Boots, Ruffles & Timeless Elegance

The Andrew Gn Fashion Show took place on the 2nd of March in a beautiful ballroom of a classic Parisian hotel. The pink catwalk matched the elegant parts of the collection as well as the beatiful music. The designer’s collection was reflected in the versatility and influence of different cultures. Concise stitched out embroidery, which emphasized both garments tone on tone and in contrasting colors. From the special collection, the designer sets trends for the next season. Velvet Boots both over – and Underknee in colors such as dark green or magenta, but also ruffles, which the designer put oversized scene.

Travel Tips & Tricks in Paris – Restaurants, Attractions & The Best Photo Spots

A weekend in Paris can quickly get stressful. There is a lot to see in the city of love and of course you want to take as much as you can. But what are the Places To Be and which sights can one also save?

Restaurants Paris – something for every taste

Paris is teeming with cafés and restaurants. My personal recommendation (after careful consideration) is definitely the ‘Le Comptoir de Pantheon’, where you can enjoy not only delicious coffee and desserts, but also the traditional French Croque Madame – a crusty bread topped with ham, cheese and an egg French fries and salad – and of course Mamma Primi, an Italian restaurant that offers incredibly tasty buffalo mozzarella pizza and the ‘Gnocchi Gnocchi on Heaven’s Door’ (gnocchi with tomato sauce baked with cheese). Two real insider tips for the Schlemmer among us.

Sights & Photo Spots – the most beautiful places Paris

Nobody can deny that Paris is one of the most beautiful cities in the world, but as a tourist it is important to plan well and be prepared. To save you some work here are the tips for the best sights and photo spots:

Arc de Triumph – Champs Elysee – Pont Alexandre III – Grand Palais – Tour Eifel

You can plan these sights for a day, because once you have reached the rest on foot. Starting at the Grand Palais (where, among others, the Chanel + Louis Vuitton Show took place) a beautiful palace, which is also great for photos, you walk only about 100-200m until you are in the middle of the Pont Alexandre III. A stunning bridge with golden ornaments, from which you can also take a look at the Eifel tower – this is also a popular spot for beautiful photos. From there, it’s a 5-minute walk to Avenue Montaigne. Nothing for Shoppaholics, because there are the most luxurious fashion houses housed. From Chanel to Dior, Prada and Yves Saint Laurent you will find everything your luxury heart desires. If you run this to the end, you are already in the middle of the Champs Elysee with the Arc de Triumphe, which drifts at the end of the road. Also, this one is great for pictures but watch out – goes to the opposite side of the Arc de Triumph (not where he goes to the Champs Elysee) because there is much less bustle and your pictures are all the more beautiful! Not to forget, of course, the Eiffel tower, the spot of spots in Paris for great pictures!

Travel Tips Amsterdam: PINK! The new trend color of spring

Hello my dears, I hope you had nice Easter days! I spent mine with my family in Holland. Even though I’m not really a fan of the Netherlands, I let myself be persuaded to drive again. We lived in a small house near Zandvoort. Advantage? It was right on the sea and lay between dunes, so real holiday feeling + It is only half an hour away from Amsterdam. Disadvantage? It was icy cold and very windy, so you lost this summer feeling as soon as you left the house.

+ Do you know?

+

Our trip started on Friday morning, when my step brothers collected me here in Cologne and we drove on towards Zandvoort. Once there, the whole patchwork family was waiting for us. Of course, then first a beach walk in icy temperatures was announced. Not necessarily my highlight of the trip, but apart from the temperature and the wind very nice. Saturday we spent our day in Amsterdam. The city is really beautiful and I have a little bit in love with the old houses with huge windows, but also here it was very cold and how could it be otherwise, windy. What I have to let the Dutch, but nowhere else does the pancake taste as good as there. Of course, we also enjoyed it directly in a ‘Pannkokenhus’. I do not know what the Dutch do differently, but somehow they manage to make the pancakes delicious and yet very different. Of course I could not take a little shopping. For such a day full of shopping, sightseeing and running around, the right outfit has to be found. I have for you one or the other Outfitalternative detained.

Black and White – Chic but still warm!

This outfit looks both chic and elite but is also very practical as it keeps you warm at the same time. The sweater by Zara is super warm and super comfortable. Due to its white color and a zipper on the back, it still looks very stylish. For this I have combined a black basic pants Reserved. Since there is a lot going on during a sightseeing / shopping tour, I exceptionally left the high heels at home and put on my Adidas Superstar glitter. The outfit is completed with my bag by Fashion Drug, which is not too big but still big enough so that I could take everything necessary. If that’s still too cold for you, you can also combine a white leather jacket on the sweater (pic 2).

PINK! The new trend color of spring

This outfit is definitely not suitable for the chilblains among you, but you can combine it so great in the summer. It is especially suitable for city trips, as it does very little with very little. Soberly wired, it’s just a top, a leather jacket and a pair of jeans, but it looks like much more with the use of colors and accessories. Since it is so simple, this outfit is super comfortable and uncomplicated. I fell in love with the color of the top. The Pink is super trendy this summer and fits particularly well with brown hair. If you like the color, you can find more great pieces in this color at Zara. Just like this top. The jacket, which is definitely my favorite part this spring, you can buy at Zara. These pants are again from Reserved and the bag from Fashion Drug.

All Black Everything – Outfit Inspiration

As you have noticed by now, this bag is my absolute favorite. It simply has the perfect shape and size to take with you every day. Even with this outfit she manages to upgrade the whole look. The t-shirt is also one of my new achievements from my favorite new online store, Fashion Drug, which is also the bag. It is super comfortable and looks great by the cut and the print just by itself. In addition a black pants with cracks by Zara and your outfit is perfect. Since the temperatures are just a little too fresh for such an outfit, I recommend you to the Edgy look a leather jacket or a cool torn denim jacket. So you complete this look perfectly and have simply created a cool outfit.

Perfect waves for a perfect outfit

As a last tip, I’ll show you something from the field of beauty, with which you can easily spice up your look. The Perfect Beachwaves, as seen from the Victoria’s Secret catwalks. Who does not dream of it? It is so easy to get the perfect waves. The nuts and bolts here are the curling iron. it shouldnt be too thin or too thick and should already meet a certain quality. It is also important that you will not get the perfect beachwaves with a flat iron, a curling iron is definitely necessary.
When you have found your perfect curling iron, there is not much left. Just divide your hair into two parts (I always divide them from one ear to the other) and put the top half away. Then you spray your hair with heat protection spray. I use guardian angels from Schwarzkopf got2b. If your curling iron is preheated (in my hair 180 degrees) you take a ca 5cm thick strand and wrap it around your curling iron. After about 20-30 seconds you can let go and continue with the next one. You do all this with all your hair and make sure you all turn in the same direction. When you’re done, just spray your hair over the top with hairspray (extra volume) and set it up. If you want, you can also use a comb to go through your hair again. Your beachwaves are done. The whole thing looks like my own.

Happy Easter ? #ootd

Such a hairstyle enhances your outfit enormously and makes you look super elegant.
Sunday it was already back home and I was able to rest a little and relax the rest of Easter.
I hope you liked my blog this week and you were able to take some great new Outfitideas / Beauty Tips with you. Who wants to go to Amsterdam, I can only recommend a boat trip through the canals and definitely a Pannkokenhus. I still wish you a great week and a good start to the day! If you have suggestions / suggestions or ideas for a blog post, feel free to write me in the comments!
