Welcome back adventurer! Here we go, second part of my attempt to capture the blissful beauty of this special city! Also, happy weekend! I am glad that I’ve got 2 days off anything to concentrate on my uni homework and christmas presents 🙂 This year I somehow managed to NOT get into stress regarding presents and just having fun adding bits of this and that to fit every individual loved one 🙂

Here we were on the scout for a nice coffee shop that serves vegan lunch. This one had only one option BUT we stayed to take pics of their incredible decor! So lovely!

Ok, so we didn’t find a vegan snack but stumbled across this pretty restaurant that had some vegan and glutenfree options. Not very cheap but worth the price …

This tempeh and salad plate with patatas bravas was 11 € and included the MOST pleasent server that you can also have a nice chat with!

Tempeh is fermented soy beans and super healthy, it is rich in protein and dietary fibre and leads to way less bloating than normal tofu. Our body loooves fermented stuff (i.e. Sauerkraut/miso/soy sauce)

Next up, one of plenty of beau-ti-ful windows and show rooms, perfectly decorated in style and with abandon! Simply walking by these shops is fun, you don’t even ave to leave money there! But, on the other hand, it’s not even that expensive, you’ve got all kinds of price variations!

There will be a last part on monday, it would just be too much beauty for one post 😀 I wish you the happiest 4. advent and love and peace and balance,

yours truly, Jule xx

Just another wonderful day in the capital with a girl without a label. I just realized again that even the label “friend” constrains the relationship with the expectations and prototypes society imposes on us. Besides kindness, just act like you feel towards a person. You esteem me? Spent a little of your precious time with me as a present. Help me out when I need support. Jump for joy with me when life is sweet. Not because you are my friend but because you enjoy us being together 🙂

Overall by Dorothy Perkins

Pictures I took of my blue overall which kinda looks like work clothing, you know, those blue onesies workers wear a at a construction site 😀 It used to have two basic straps over the shoulders but one went off so I made a neck holder top out of it! I love this one, from the first day I bought it in England, but it seems like I’ve grown or it shrinked because it’s a bit to tight now. Not visible on pictures but it’s just uncomfy :/ Therefore I’ll sell it. I think. Or I’ll think of a way to make it larger. Haha!

How to be in love instantly

Yesterday, when I stood unter the shower, I thought about the feeling of being in love and how the whole world changes, how some things get more meaningful and others don’t. How it is so magical that for everyone else the world seems normal but for you everything sparkles.

And then I realized that this sort of feeling isn’t something I have to wait for and that depends on acceptance by others, no, I can just create it myself. Because love equals self love, attention equals self-awareness,

and it is still your choice how you want to perceive the world 🙂

Photoshoot in Berlin with my babe Anna ❤ Can you spot the Fernsehturm? 😀

I am wearing a vintage coat I bought in a Oxfam shop in Bristol, the yellow knit is from H&M (sale 10 €, needed it for the frosty days over here), vintage bag and scarf, black leggings and boots from Deichmann. I guess it’s obvious that I enjoy bying vintage stuff haha! I love t thougt of using / wearing something as long as it’s wearable ! This was my first photoshooting in the midst of many people in a huge city so it definetely was a new experience, but absolutely cool! Love it ! Have you had such a experience already? Let me know how you felt like :*

xoxo Jule

 

 

 

Vegan temple

swsw1sw3sw5sw6

Little update x

I went to Schönhauser Allee on monday to get some things I love Germany for, i.e. vegan shampoo for 60 cents and lots of cruelty free products and food for peanuts! I also ad to stop by the mall to get myself a cozy sweater (thanks goodness there are still tiny bits of winter sale items!), because it is still very-very-very cold 😛

On my way back I spotted a poster announcing SCOOTER in concert HAHAHA! That’s so Berlin, actually Anna and I have to go and show off our very personalized shuffle-dance style 😀

Next, yesterday the two of us met at Warschauer Strasse, which I’ve only ever seen by night (party hotspot), but this time I was surprised by its diversity ! We planned to go to GOODIES, a vegan café which -I should have known that before because it’s the same everywhere- shares a place with VEGANZ, our german vegan foodstore chain! Even more surprising was that we found the vegan restaurant THE BOWL on the second floor, which I’ve been following on instagram for ages and never had a clue where to find it! Crazy! So this place is obviously a vegan temple – pure awesomeness! We had incredibly good cake (the one on the picture was mine until I realized that I ordered the wrong one and mixed up the descriptions – this one contains gluten which I can’t have, but luckily I could switch it to a raw vegan stracciatella cake *_*) and a business talk about our latest ´project – stay tuned! xx

I am back in Berlin! The first two days have been so fricking cold…  can’t get over it haha! But today I woke up to bright sunshine and the predicted 4 degrees celsius actually feel somewhat like the weather in Porto!

Speaking of the south, here you have some pictures Anna took of me during one of our last strolls trough the city. I’ll definitely be back, this city has something magical. It feels like coming into a cozy living room instead of a vibrant city, that’s what I love. A city that doesn’t stress you up but gives you peace 🙂

But now: Berlin! I am very exited and gonna take use of the sunny weather! Speak to you later babes ♣

Sun on my face

_1250404I love it! I love the warmth and the sun on my back, legs, feet, face, sculp, arms etc! I love being able to lay outside carelessly because it’s just so warm that you could spend hours in the park or on the beach in your fluttery dress. The warmness of the blanket from beneath, the tingling sunrays from above. I love it and I will come back to it ☼

We are gonna leave Portugal for a bit. Maybe it’s just a short visit home or even a longer period in Germany. Either way, we are gonna hit the road again soon. Til then, Porto pleases us with summer-like weather, begging us to stay, and I’d definitely come back. But home’s nice as well and there are some projects in the planning, which are easier to do/start from home (some parts at least). So stay tuned and look forward to some Berlin-Inspiration ❤
