Hey, my name is Julia and I live near of Berlin / Germany 🇩🇪 but I have also lived for many years in Brussels 🇧🇪, Copenhagen 🇩🇰 and Nairobi 🇰🇪. I was actually born in Copenhagen and I guess that is where my deep love for Scandinavia comes from. In the past years I travelled several times to Helsinki and Stockholm. It always feels like coming home when I travel to the North. Nevertheless I still have to visit Copenhagen again – it’s definitely on my travel wishlist.
My passion for fashion
I love to be creative wherever and whenever I can. Being a daydreamer describes me pretty well I guess. I am passionate about fashion, interior and decorating my home. As you may think I prefer the Scandinavian influence even here and so my furnishing is mostly in neutral / white colors. I love everything clean and minimalistic. When it comes to decorating I definitely have a week spot for Scandinavian brands. I always check their websites for new inspiration and what can I say – they’ll never let me down. But the fashion part is definitely my biggest passion. Fashion is so much more than just wearing an outfit. It’s your way to show the world who you are and how you feel.
I am a foodie. I love pasta, but actually I love good food in general and from all over the world. Oh, and I cook often. Even when I’m busy I like to prepare my food and store it in the fridge so I have something fresh to eat every day. I like to try new recipes on the weekend and eat pretty clean during the week. Also, I trink plenty of water / tea and I would never say no to a glass of wine or sparkling wine and I’m definitely a coffeeholic. I can’t live without my daily dose in the morning – but only the good stuff.
Body & Mind
I’m focused when it comes to my work out routine. I have never been a huge fan of working out to be honest. But I had a back injury as a teenager and it resulted in chronicle back pain ever since. I tried a lot to ease the pain but the only thing, next to massages, what really helps is working out. So that is my biggest motivation and I can tell you working out is not as bad as suffering from horrible back pain.
I love spending time in the nature and there is no better place like being in my own garden. I would have never thought that I would say that but gardening can be really fulfilling. When everything is in full bloom it’s pure joy and good for the soul. I love plants and flowers. My favorites are hydrangeas by the way – there are more than 15 in my garden.
Keep in mind
