NYC // Aesop Bleecker St

Aesop Bleecker St (NY) - The Epic Guide

On Bleecker Street you’ll find the third New York City outpost of the Australian skin care brand Aesop – well-known for their visually stunning flagship stores all over the world. Instead of going for a singular look for all their shop interiors (as almost all other fashion and cosmetics houses do), they work with many talented architects and designers to create a completely unique and different interior in each location, often drawing inspiration from the context.

In this little gem of a shop the designers of Melbourne-based March Studio where inspired by the neighborhood’s bohemian past, creating a warm and intimate interior using wooden wall paneling, gorgeous brass details and a leather floor. We’re especially loving the Louis Poulsen pendant light and the huge brass sink – a signature detail coming back in every Aesop store, where you can try out all their quality products, before treating yourself to a new soap or shampoo – pleasing both your skin as well as your eyes: their highly stylized black bottles add an instant dose of design to your bathroom!

New York, Travel

First in Business


Two weeks ago, Brussels Airlines invited us to fly to New York with them. In Business Class. We’re not even going to pretend that we weren’t jumping up and down with joy, of course we were! Isn’t it a fantasy of many travel addicts to fly business and enjoy all the perks? Read more ›

Eat, New York

NYC // Reynard

Reynard Brooklyn // Wythe Hotel NYC

This one was on our to do list before Dieter and I arrived for the third time together in NYC. With most of the “touristy” things checked off our list or not high priority, that leaves a whole lot of time for brunching, wining and dining (or cocktailing and dining, as we do most of the time). The Wythe hotel was a must on our list in april this year, and so, after visiting the Brooklyn Flea and before heading over to Roosevelt Island, we went for brunch at Wythe’s ground floor restaurant Reynard.

The Epic Guide to Las Vegas


Back in the summer of 2010, we went on a month long roadtrip in the USA with no less than 11 friends. It was right after my graduation and I think it’s safe to say it was an unforgettable vacation. Our first and last stop was Las Vegas, which despite its fake exterior had more to offer than I first thought. So here are some snaps and addresses from the few days we spent there, no tequila, no Elvis impersonators, I promise. Read more ›

Drink, New York

NYC // Le Bain

Remembering how happy I was sitting on top of The Standard Hotel in NYC makes me want to hop on a plane and go back asap. Maybe I should wait until the next heatwave hits, so I can go back to Le Bain. To drink cold cocktails, lie on the waterbeds, get served by waitresses in cute tennis outfits and look at this view. Simply amazing. Read more ›
