I had the whole week off and since my new apartment is still not ready, I’m staying at my parents house. Which can be exhausting at times, I’m not gonna lie, but mostly, it’s a lot of fun and I get to spent loads of time with my mommy. So we decided to do a little girls-trip and go to Hamburg. We both love Hamburg. To me, Hamburg is just such a beautiful city because of the old, white houses, the harbor, great restaurants and endless shopping opportunities. Always something going on but not as big as Berlin and rather subtle and classy than hipster.
We started our day at the Mönckebergstrasse, a rather popular street with lots of shops like H&M, Zara, Mango, beauty stores and Starbucks. It’s nothing fancy or special but the buildings are pretty and the stores there are all rather big and usually have all the items from new collections. So I tried on about 20 pairs of shoes, some ruffled shirts… And finally got myself the end-of-one-chapter-start-of-the-next-chapter gift I had missed to get in Frankfurt: the new La Petite Robe Noire Intense by Guerlain. If you haven’t tried it, you absolutely should, it smells delicious! And of course some Essie nail polish 😉 Just on a side note: I like to get myself fragrances on special events in my life or when successfully completing something. Because when you smell the perfume years later, it still reminds you of that accomplishment or occasion.
