Counting down to Mexico: 30 days!
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.

Amsterdam travel look

Amsterdam must be one of my most frequently visited cities ever, but for some reason it’s always a quickie. Same for last Friday, when I headed to the Dutch capital to spend a night with Kruidvat. I made a vlog about the trip (EXCITING) so you’ll see more about that on the blog real soon!…

Two weeks ago TUIfly (probably known to you by their former name, JetairFly) invited me to discover one of their Autumn destinations together with a friend. I was happy to bring along bestie Lisa to this surprise trip for her birthday!

Secret holiday tips for Marbella?

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…

Stars in Berlin

Oh my, I’m sharing my Berlin travel look from two weeks ago only a few days before heading to Berlin AGAIN! It seems like Berlin is my number one destination when it comes to festivals, because after Lollapalooza festival I’m off to Michelberger Music this time. This experimental non-profit festival is set up by members from…

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…

Another episode of Polienne around the clock that takes you to Amsterdam! This time only for a super quick breakfast meeting, which I will tell you all about later in my report. First of all I need to excuse myself for these two selfie shots that feature exactly the same Wiske face. I think I’m rather…

What to pack for a weekend getaway?
Lifestyle

To fully enjoy these warm days, the entire country of Belgium drove to the seaside earlier this weekend, including me! Lisa and I needed a little break and decided to go for a short detox getaway to the beach. Because I’m a serial overpacker, I decided to prepare a list of things to build my ideal take-away…

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…

3 Berlin tips: sharing is caring

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. But before I could make any visiting plans last year, suddenly (blog) work allowed me to go there 4 times! Alas, business trips are usually super short,…

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

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…
