Travel

In my throwback to 2016 you could read that I booked a holiday to another continent for the first time of my life. “But Pielaun, you’re quite the traveler, no?”, you might think? Yep, in my former modeling days I had to opportunity to travel a lot, so I have visited some countries in Asia and have…

#Amsterdam must-visit

I just read about the impressive Kanarie Club on Chapter Friday – this huge place is a brand new hotspot where you can work, brunch, chill, dine, drink cocktails and casually take a dip at the poolbar! Definitely a must-visit when in Amsterdam. Hope to go there soon! Read the full article here.

A vlog from Amsterdam!

And yes. Although I felt extremely awkward after my first spoken video here, I decided to do another one to end 2016 to see if you’d like more videos in 2017! Last month I was invited for a beauty trip to Amsterdam together with Kruidvat.  My bestie and roomie Robin joined me and we made the…

Flash trip to Stockholm

As an avid adorer of Monki, Christmas lights and trips to IKEA you’d expect me to travel to Sweden at least once a year to give in to these wonderful guilty pleasures. But alas, my bank account doesn’t allow such splurges on a regular base! I’ve only been to Stockholm once, together with my parents,…

On the rocks

The ultimate proof that Marbella has an extremely divers landscape to admire. When driving through the mountains, our eyes were caught by a magnificent grey rock formation that would serve as the perfect backdrop for my breezy Summer dress. I’ll leave you with the almost surrealistic results and I hope you’re having a wonderful day! Can…

At sunset

The one thing you can always rely on when traveling to the South of Europe? Those stunning Mediterranean sunsets. When driving back from our visit to beautiful Ronda near Marbella, Lisa and I witnessed one of these beautiful regularities from the car. You don’t often get these kind of opportunities, so we immediately pulled over to shoot…

Going Greek (in Spain)

The downside of owning more clothes than one could possibly fit in one IKEA Pax closet? Forgetting about pieces that are really awesome… So when I packed my Summer clothes last year, I apparently hid away a few items that I totally forgot about! I found the box last month and was bummed out to discover…

In my post earlier this weekend I told you about the fact that besides my short city trip to Seville back in May, I haven’t really treated myself on a sun getaway this year. But TOMORROW I’m leaving for a pretty last-minute trip to sunny Marbella with Jetairfly (soon known as TUIfly)! My bestie Lisa is coming along so…

When everything falls together

In Seville you can find the most picturesque houses literally queuing up to be photographed. When I spotted this beauty on the other side of the river, I immediately pictured it with this stunning ASOS dress that I brought. At first sight this flamenco-like dress doesn’t fit my moodboard for dressing up in Summer at all (hello…

Seville travel diary & tips
Travel

Many of you have asked for my tips on Seville, so besides another outfit, I gathered all my information and photos for you in a huge travel diary! First of all, we visited the city in the perfect month: May. Allegedly being the hottest city in Europe, in July and August temperatures can rise towards 40° and higher,…

Seville by night & an ASOS update

Discovering Seville with my mom last weekend was a real treat: next to visiting all the (impressive!) cultural highlights and experiencing fantastic temperatures of over 30° every day, we also did some really great afternoon naps in the park, had more tapas than a person should probably consume in a month and discovered some real cool laid-back areas in…

Playing the tile game

Hola amigos! I’m back from a lovely, relaxing 4 day getaway to Seville! My favourite part of the trip? Apart from el calor while it was raining at home and the delicious Spanish tapas that I stuffed my face with 3 times a day? TILES. It seemed like every corner, bench and wall of the entire city was covered in…

Off to Seville!
Travel

A few weeks ago I stopped by the doctor because I had been chronically exhausted for about two months at that point (think 9 hours of sleep at night and still having trouble to keep my eyes open during the day), and it turned out I had acquired infectious mononucleosis — that’s an unnecessarily difficult English word for klierkoorts…

Soooo, Berlin. I’ve told you that my two besties and I booked a little mid-week trip to the German capital a little while ago to attend a concert and to discover the city. We were lucky to experience a royal 12° and sun (usually Berlin equals rain and goosebumps) so you can imagine we spent…

The number one city on my travel wishlist for 2015 was Berlin. Despite its great reputation, impressive history and affordable travel costs, I had never managed to drop by.

Win a well-deserved holiday break in Saint-Martin, the Caraibes!

As you might have noticed by my insanely stupid playback videos on Snapchat, I’m currently studying for my very last exam. After a full week of intense studying, I’ve obviously started to have hallucinations about better, non-study times… Like for example, that one time when Elien and I took over the amazing Caribbean island Saint-Martin!…

48 Hours in Oslo

Norway is one of those destinations that is on most people’s travel wishlist, but often gets a lot of competition from more classic Scandinavian must-sees like Iceland or Sweden. Truth is that the country has a LOT to offer, especially the beautiful capital city Oslo. For the launch of the limited Winter Coolection from Emmi CAFFÈ…
