    Vive La Différence – A Day in Berlin

    March 4, 2013

    Morning. It’s monday, a new week and it’s meant to get into double figures. Really? It’s been so cold I cannot remember what’s it’s like not to freeze:-)

    It’s vive la différence monday and i’m delighted to feature the lovely Holly and Trisha from we heart home. Holly is originally from montreal and Trisha from london. They both now live in berlin and work at fashion for home, where they run their blog from.

    For new readers:

    The concept: each month I will invite one blogger. They will create and showcase one image/vignette. There are 20 themes and 20 objects for my guest to choose from. They choose 1 theme and up to 3 objects. I will then create an image/vignette based on their choice. Everyone has free reign on how to create the image. It can be simple photography, a drawing, a collage, a hand-painted image, a styled table top… the choice is yours! The fun part is that you, my readers, will see 2 versions inspired by the same subject matter. There is no right or wrong. There’s just ‘different’.

    Holly and Trisha chose the theme: a day in berlin with the object: clothing. Here’s their journey!

    A Day In Berlin.



    Woke up late. Need to be at morgenland for brunch with my bro half an hour ago. No time to change, stay in pajamas. Grab purse from last night. Jump on the U1. Soon I’ll be devouring a delicious, all-you-can-eat buffet for less than €10. I think the lady next to me just heard my stomach growling.


    Finally managed to get some proper clothes on. Gone for ‘Minnie Mouse Chic’ for my weekly Kaffee & Kuchen with friends at oberholz. THE best homemade ice tea in Berlin. Don’t even get me started on their cake… I could eat it all day. Not cheap, but a special Sunday treat!


    Slip into the little black dress. Off to beckett’s kopf for a first date. Eek! However it turns out, I know I’ll at least enjoy my Isle of Smile cocktail. Wish me luck.

    A true scenario:
    I take the plane to berlin knowing i only have a day to go and visit everyhting i want. The maps and guides come out. The stickers at the ready. I mark out my route.

    When in berlin, i hire a vespa and follow my carefully planned journey. I stop at all my favourite places, while exploring some new ones. Here are some of them:

    do you read me?!

    There never seems to be enough time when in berlin. Time is up and i’m heading back to the airport plotting what to see when i next return!
