WTW: 1 SCARF - 3 STYLES

*Werbung

Ich weiß nicht wie es euch geht, aber ich liebe es einfach total Schals oder Tücher zu tragen. Gerade in der Übergangs-Saison, also im Frühjahr und Herbst, finde ich Schals nicht nur hilfreich um den Hals zu wärmen, sondern auch ein schickes Fashion-Accessoire, mit dem man jeden Look ein wenig aufpeppen kann. Passend dazu habe ich euch hier mal drei Styles zusammen gestellt, wie ihr einen Schal tragen könnt und dabei auf jeden Fall ein richtiger Eyecatcher seid! ;)
Ich habe mich hier übrigens für einen Schal bzw. ein Tuch von WTW entschieden, dass ich sehr gerne und häufig trage. Das Label aus München wurde von zwei Frauen gegründet und steht für absolute Girlpower, Nachhaltigkeit und höchste Qualitätsstandards. WTW steht daher (passenderweise) auch für "Women to Women", da hinter jedem Arbeitsschritt, von der Produktion über das Marketing bis hin zum Management, eine Frau steht! WTW wird in Peru gefertigt, unter fairen und umweltschonenden Bedingungen und auch der Umgang mit den Tieren ist natürlich artgerecht! Die Produkte werden übrigens aus peruanischer Alpakawolle gefertigt, diese ist wärmer, leichter und weicher als z.B. Kaschmir oder Merinowolle... Ich bin daher wirklich ein großer Fan von WTW und finde die Idee der Mädels wirklich toll! Ich trage Tücher eigentlich am liebsten so wie auf den ersten beiden Bilder, also einfach über die Schulter gehängt, als Stola. Das finde ich besonders für den Abend toll, es rundet den Look elegant ab, und wenn man ein Kleidchen trägt und es z.B. beim Dinner oder auf einem Event plötzlich etwas frisch wird, kann man sich das Tuch locker um die Schultern legen und sieht immer noch schick aus. Eine weitere Methode, die ich besonders gerne benutze wenn ich es mal etwas "easier" möchte, ist die, die ihr auf Bild 3 und 4 sehen könnt. Ich binde mir den Schal einfach locker um die Hüfte. Das passt besonders zu einem gemütlichen Beach Look. Wird es Abends dann etwas kühler hat man dann gleichmal ein Halstuch griffbereit! :) Last but not least Variante 3, die ich auch sehr gerne trage: Im Grunde quasi ganz normal als Schal um den Hals gebunden, mit dem einzigen Unterschied, dass ich das Tuch etwas über die Schultern ziehe auf einer Seite. Ich finde so sieht es noch etwas eleganter aus! Natürlich gibt es noch zig weitere Ideen, wie man Schals und Tücher toll in Szene setzten kann, aber jetzt kennt ihr zumindest mal meine drei lieblings Varianten! :) Und für weitere Infos zu den tollen Produkten von WTW könnt ihr einfach deren Hompage besuchen...

TRAVEL: PARK HYATT DUBAI

*Werbung

You probably remember that I stayed in Park Hyatt Dubai a few months ago, right?! I actually really love visiting Dubai, especially during german winter / fall season, as it is easy to reach from Germany (only takes around 5-6 hours) so you won't have a jet lag or an exhausting arrival. Especially since the temperatures are perfect in Dubai during November/December... Last time I was able to stay in the wonderful Park Hyatt Dubai, and I'd like to tell you  a little more about my stay now. The Park Hyatt Dubai is very well located, only around 10 min car ride from DXB international airport. It's got a stunning view overseeing Dubai Creek, the Skyline and world famous Burj Khalifa. The hotel is designed in an appealing, modern look, it provides its guests 223 rooms and 34 suites, a 25 metre long swimming pool (with a whirlpool in every corner), Spa and Fitness Center and of course plenty of different restaurants and bars to wine and dine... Among others "The Thai kitchen", where you can enjoy authentic thai cuisine prepared by native chefs (it also has a live cooking station by the way); "The Brasserie du Park" is designed very modern with mediterranean influences, it serves breakfast, lunch and dinner. Another highlight was definitely the so called "SeventySeventy", which is a cozy bar in a funky 70's style for the sophisticated urban clientele and a great choice of tasty drinks... Talking about the rooms: They have a very clean and modern look, in contrast to the outter look of the traditional looking architecture of the hotel itself. If you want to can enjoy a nice in-room breakfast or just a glass of wine on your own balcony... I absolutely enjoyed my girls trip to Dubai and this unique accommodation and I will for sure come back soon cause it's always worth a trip even for a quick weekend getaway! Thanks to the whole Park Hyatt Team for this relaxing stay.

MALDIVES: AMILLA FUSHI


As promised, here comes the second travel review about my maldives trip which took part end of november/beginning of december last year. Some days ago I already reviewed my stay at the stunning Finolhu Resort, now I want to tell you more about my stay at Amilla Fushi, which is actually the sister island of Finolhu. You can reach Amilla by sea plane from the main island Male (takes around 30 min) or if you want to do kinda island hopping, like we did, you can also reach Amilla by speed boat from Finolhu, it takes only around 20 minutes. Amilla Fushi can be translated with "my Island home" and this really describes the feeling that you have while staying there... you'll feel like home, and the staff will make everything that is in their power to make you feel comfortable and relaxed, so you can enjoy your time on the island to the fullest. The island is located in the UNESCO-protected biosphere of the Baa Atoll, you can expect breathtaking shades of blue there, it's beyond words and looks like real-life-photoshop ;) On the Island you'll have a choice of different Villa types to choose from (See all listed here) In case you want to stay there with a huge group of friends or with your family, Amilla offers large residences with up to 8 bedrooms! We stayed in the so called Lagoon House, which offers stunning sunset views, 200m² space in total, an outdoor rain shower, a large swimming pool and direct access to the sea. It was so much fun to jump right into the ocean from our terrace, we loved to snorkle there and explore the maldivian underwater world. There are, in general, lots of (water) activities that you can try while your stay... You can dive, go on a sunset cruise (incl. champagne and some snacks - really loved this experience!) or you can play volleyball on the beach, play football or badminton, do yoga in the yoga pavilion (alone or in a group) or you could play tennis (Amilla has partnered with LUX Tennis, which provides professional tennis coaches)... As you can see there is so much to do and to explore on the island! Beside these activities you can also book special experiences like a "sandbank experience", wine and cheese tasting in the wine cellar aso... It's not gonna get boring, trust me! Amilla is the perfect symbiosis of relaxation and fun activities. But one thing that should be mentioned here as well is of course the food. You have so many different restaurants where you can eat, it is simply amazing, there is a choice for everyone and for every taste. Just to mention a few here: The Barolo Grill: Fine italian kitchen with indoor and outdoor sitting and an amazing selection of great wines. WOK: Asian flavours, for example spicy thai salads, dim sum, noodle soups, curries aso. Feeling Koi: Surrounded by the sea, you can enjoy culinary magic there while eating on an open deck. Feeling Koi is Amilla's signature restaurant and serves minimal japanese cuisine. The Emperor Beach Club: We always used to go there for lunch and enjoyed the laid-back atmosphere there and the live music entertainment. You can order a la carte there and also enjoy the huge buffet as well. And when I say huge I mean huge! You have the biggest choice of food there, it was literally food heaven I can tell you! :) To get a detailed overview about the different restaurants / bars on the island just have a look here. Another thing I don't want to left unspoken is the Javuu Spa! It's right in the middle of the island and the perfect place to relax and unwind. The Spa is by the way winner of the Spa World Luxury Awards 2018. I think that speaks for itself... ;) Next to the Spa you'll find the gym, and also a barber, nail salon and a hair/beauty lounge. As you can see Amilla offers everything for a perfect holiday which you will never forget, that is for sure!
