The last weekend of July is already just around the corner – and we’ve been very lucky to have such a beautiful summer so far. One has only to look at this sunset @leila_garfield took from a Berlin classic and tagged it with #linksinberlin! Here’s to many more days like this – and another round-up of things to read and do in Berlin, our own way of showing our love for living in this city! Taking the time to sit down and enjoy a cup of coffee is one of life’s simple pleasures – and in Berlin, there’re so many cafés to choose from. So next time you ask yourself where to go, how about Marta’s latest discovery? As someone who spends as much time as Markthalle Neun as possible, either for Street Food Thursday or the weekly farmers’ market, we’re always happy about the growing food scene in Berlin. The latest addition might be a new farmer’s market in Neukölln: Die dicke Linda! Taking place for the first time tomorrow, don’t miss the chance to stock up on fresh produce while browsing the many stalls on Kranoldplatz! One of our favorite things to do in summer is to ride our bike around the city. But of course, from time to time, we’re glad that Berlin has the Ringbahn, one of the easiest ways to get around. Paul from Slow Travel wanted to change things up a bit and walked all around the city instead. (Have a look at Part 1 as well!) Due to bad weather in May, the Hangover Boheme Flea Market had to be rescheduled. Tomorrow, it’s taking place again at Soho House from 10:00-18:00, so be sure to stop by for some vintage shopping! Time flies: it’s been already one year since Bite Club started! Tonight, they’re celebrating the first birthday where it all began: come along for the street food party at the riverside!

I just arrived in Cape Town last night for today's premiere of Advanced Style The Documentary in South Africa. The screening is part of a series of talks and shows organized by Mercedes Benz Fashion Week Cape Town. I decided to check out what was happening at the convention center before heading to bed when I noticed the most gorgeous woman waiting in line to attend deseiner,Marianne Fassler's, show. I quickly ran up to the line, as it was moving into the auditorium, and told this stunning lady and her friend that I would love to take their photos after the show. To my surprise they knew exactly who I was and have been reading Advanced Style for the last couple of years. They snuck out of line and we took a few quick photographs before heading back into the show. After the gorgeous presentation we met up again and they told me that they had no idea that I was in town or that my film would be playing in Cape Town. Sometimes I think that I must have some kind of Advanced Style radar guiding me to amazing older people around the world! I can't wait to see my new friends at their home in Paarl next week.In other exciting news, Advanced Style The Documentary will be playing in US theaters starting September 26th!!!

Ah the Dior earring…
We’ve seen it before, in fact it may be the earring of the past year. But the question is, how do you wear it? As a matching pair? Or do you go singular like Garance? Either way, this amazing pink pair is topping my earring wishlist. Dior ‘Tee Shirt’ Earring, Kirna Zabete.]]>
Margaux, our lovely photo intern, just came back from Tulum…
And she brought back a realllll good souvenir (outside of her tan and glowy beachy-ness): Coqui Coqui Perfume! Imagine the perfect fresh summer scent. Got it in your head? Well, it’s this. Warm, fresh and sweet with the perfect mix of orange blossom. Thankfully, a trip to Tulum isn’t required for purchase (although it’s encouraged!), you can get Coqui Coqui here!]]>
I love the kind of quirky but very chic accessories that are popular right now with all my favorite designers. It’s a totally unnecessary luxury – and that’s why it’s so perfect.
Click on the arrows to see all the photos – I don’t know why, but the Isabel paddles are my favorite right now (since beach paddle ball is my FAVORITE sport in the world, and throwing myself in the water like a crazy person is my favorite activity in the world) or maybe the Eres jump rope, just because the natural leather is so incredibly gorgeous. What’s your favorite? Who’s up for a game of paddle ball with me?

I saw this woman near Piazza di Spagna in Rome and couldn't stop looking at her gorgeous silver hair.]]>
It’s summer in Berlin, our favorite season in the city! And what’s better than to celebrate it with some nice tunes? Next in our weekly Kitchen Tunes series: Ban Ban Kitchen! Serving so-called Korean ‘soul food’ like bulgogi burgers and kimchi pommes, it quickly became one of our favorite places to go before taking a walk around Tempelhof! Get ready for another summer weekend at the many Brandenburg lakes with 2pac, Kurtis Blow and Solange!

Yesterday evening, fashion blogger icon Garance Doré presented the limited edition silk scarf she created for the French aperitif brand Lillet. The event took place on the terrace of Munich’s Goldene Bar. We all had a lovely evening enjoying the sundown, the drinks and the company of Garance. © STYLECLICKER - Garance, Blogger // Lillet En Soirée Munich is a post from: http://www.styleclicker.net]]>

A new addition to our list of favorite sunscreens: Sun Bum.
Garance pointed it out to me the other day during a trip to Ricky’s and we immediately bought a few bottles. It’s got that classic summer at the beach scent, boasts SPF 50 protection and is paraben free. It’s become a staple for all of our outdoor shoots this summer! Do you have a favorite summer sunscreen?]]>

There are so many classic watches that I love…
…like the Première and the Hermès Médor. But, sometimes its fun to wear a different kind of classic, like the Swatch! Are you a watch wearer or do you just rely on your cell phone to tell time?]]>
We’ve all been there. Fell asleep in the sun. Went for a long run. And the next day: tan lines.
My worst tan line experience happened while I was studying abroad. My friend and I took a boat (a glorified ferry) from Italy to Greece. In the morning, I went up to the top deck to take in the sights and I fell asleep on a bench. Wearing leggings. Fast forward a few hours and I was left with a bright red lower calf cut off by a straight line right at mid-calf. It was the worst tan line you could ever imagine (yeah, worse than the sunglasses tan line most often seen on guys who are too macho for sunscreen). My attempts at “evening it out” on the beach failed and just left me with more awkward lines up and down my legs. It took the rest of the summer for it to fade away and for me to not be embarrassed having bare legs in public… Now you know I’m not perfect when it comes to staying safe at the sun (see my recent adventure with lava tights) but I have learned a few tricks for helping to fade those baaadddd tan lines (things I wish I had known summer of 2009)… Exfoliate. This is the big one. Be sure you are exfoliating everyday in the shower, use a loofa with a good (gritty) scrub. It will help to slough off dead skin cells and speed up your tan line fading process. If you’re extra adventurous, try dry brushing (I just started doing it, will report back on my feelings/findings very soon!). Remember, don’t start exfoliating until after your burn has heeled! Stay moisturized. Just like when you get a bad burn, you want to keep your tan skin hydrated. Go sunless. This is reserved for seasoned pros (or if you really need to get that tan line covered up fast)– grab your sunless tanner and get to work. I prefer the gradual building sunless tanners when it comes to evening things out (I like Jergens Natural Glow), less risk envolved but it will take a bit more time. If you need a quick fix, try James Read’s Wash Off Tan, it delivers color right away (but I recommend using it with a tanning mitt for even application). Okay, since we are all friends here, tell me about your worst tan line. And then tell me your tricks for dealing with it! PS: This swimsuit is Thapleo Paris!]]>
