Meet Mabel

August 2, 2017

My old housemate had a little shih tzu called Doogle and I’ve wanted a little gremlin lookalike of my own ever since. I think they are adorable, and their under bites and googly eyes only add to their personality! But we are away too much to give a dog all of the care and attention that they need at the moment.

So, I started to browse around on pet share/borrow my doggy sites and along came Mabel! A gorgeous little shih tzu with bags of character.

Usually with sites like this, busy pet owners who travel a lot or have something holding them back from walking their dog reularly (such as work or an illness) will reach out and find people to help out. In my case Mabel has loving owners that work from home so she gets lots of love and attention. They travel a fair bit and so she’s been hanging out with me when they are away- or whenever I can persuade them to let me borrow her!

It’s been so much fun so far. Mabel is really animated, loves attention, never barks and is super easy going. Her owners have trained her so well. My friend shared this with me and it totally describes Mabel:

Composer James Mumsford described the Shih Tzu as “… a dash of lion, several teaspoons of rabbit, a couple of ounces of domestic cat, one part court jester, a dash of ballerina, a pinch of old man, a bit of beggar, a tablespoon of monkey, one part baby seal, (and) a dash of teddy bear.”

So if you are dreaming of having a pet pooch but can’t commit full time, I’d highly recommend setting something like this up. Lots of pet shelters also need voulenterts for people to walk their dogs, so there are lots of options out there.

BIRTHDAY OUTFIT OF THE DAY WITH BELL SLEEVES

May 28, 2017

Well hello there and happy Sunday! Thank you all for the birthday wishes. I feel particularly joyful because around the time of my last birthday I was recovering from my heart operation and things were a bit more somber. So ‘cheers’ to that being behind me, I am incredibly thankful for everything this year has brought me.

I spent the day getting spoiled by my lovely friend Kate (AKA Sole Satisfaction) eating tiramisu and soaking up the sunshine before heading out for more spoiling with my love.

I woke up the best way possible on my birthday. With Nick singing happy birthday, handing me gifts and cards from loved ones. We opened them and had breakfast in bed whilst listening to the new Paramore album and video-calling my Mum. She told me stories of me and my sisters when we were kids and we laughed about old times. This is a pretty significant birthday as it’s my last one as a Miss so we were feeling quite reflective. It feels crazy after so much planning that the wedding will actually be here really soon, it’s such a magical and exciting time.

Kate and I took these pictures on the afternoon of my birthday. We’d just had brunch at Lykke one of our favourite sunny spots and Kate had surprised me with balloons along with all sorts of thoughtful gifts. We took a stroll in the sunshine down towards Urban Spree where these photos were taken, stopping to look in the little independent boutiques along the way. The street art in this area of Berlin is incredible, if you haven’t been yet it’s a must see. And when the weather is nice there are some amazing beer gardens to kick back and relax in- which we obviously did with a glass of bubbles in hand.

If you’ve been to Berlin, if you’ve witnessed its nightlife and its fashion scene, you’ll have noticed a lot of the colour black. And this bell sleeved dress from ASOS is anything but black. But I absolutely love it and felt super comfortable. If you can’t wear every colour under the sun with bell sleeves on your birthday, when can you? The sunglasses were a charity shop purchase about four years ago and I’ve had soooo much wear out of them. My clogs are from office and were a gift from my Mum – thanks Mum! (she has a pair to match).

I had such a good day and am so glad that I was able to get some happy snaps of my outfit to share here. It’s been too long and I really enjoyed taking them. Speak soon!

ENGAGEMENT SHOOT PART ONE

May 4, 2017

It is with great pleasure that I share with you our engagement photos. Nick won’t mind me telling you that an engagement shoot hasn’t previously been at the top of his list of fun things to do. But as soon as he met our photographer Viktor Pravdica in the flesh they got on like a house on fire. Any reservations about feeling awkward in front of a camera melted away instantly. The two of them bonded over third-wave coffee and Sophia Coppola movies and we laughed all day with smiles from ear to ear. Both of us truly enjoyed the experience. Now, every-time I catch a glimpse of the images I can’t help but do that same smile. If you are considering having an engagement shoot done before your wedding I would strongly recommend it. It helps you to feel comfortable in your photographers presence, and helps your photographer to get to know you better, so they can capture your vibe perfectly on the big day.

We took pictures in Berlin’s landmark photo-booths and drank coffee at Nick’s favourite roasters. In Berlin the streets are full of old cars, mopeds and vans that would have been taken off the roads years ago in the UK. I love that these little details are included and how they reflect our current lifestyle as we explore and fall in love with a new city. Viktor has captured our lifestyle and relationship so well, we are happy and in love and will treasure these pictures of this special moment in our lives, forever.

Our Engagement Story

May 1, 2017

lucys faveI was about to share our official engagement photos with you when it occurred to me that I am yet to share our engagement story with you, so here it is. Due to the excitement (and bubbles) that accompanied our special moment you will see in these pictures that faces are blurred and heads are cut off. But I love them because they are so real and preserve the excitement of our special moment forever. We had a professional engagement shoot taken by Viktor Pravdica which I love equally and can’t wait to share with you soon.

But first, here’s a little backstory about how we met. We met in our university campus art gallery, while Nick was doing a Masters in music and I was doing a degree in contemporary art. Nick asked me if I’d like to work with him on a project. I agreed and together we created a contemporary opera ‘The Life and Times of Virgil Edicere’. The music was composed by Nick and the visuals created by me. It was during that creative process that we began to adore each other. I went travelling around California for the summer, whilst I was there I had my fortune told, the cards said that love, sweet love was coming my way. As soon as I stepped off the plane Nick came to visit me, we did indeed fall in love, sweet love.

 Popping The Question:

It was a completely normal and unsuspecting Thursday in Berlin, our new home city, having moved there from the UK one year ago. I was busy working on a photography project when Nick asked me if I was up for an adventure. I (of course) agreed, and he told me that I had 1.5 hours to pack an overnight bag as he had a series of surprises planned!

We got in a cab and first he took me to Paris Bar, David Bowie’s favourite place in Berlin which I had been longing to visit. There are legendary tales of Bowie and Iggy Pop’s nights spent in this authentic little venue. We ate steak and crème brûlée whilst sipping red wine surrounded by original artwork and eccentric creatives.

Then we went to the most beautiful hotel in Berlin, it was built in the 1930s, completely marble and with views of the zoo (we could see ostriches from our window) and Tiergarten the biggest park in Berlin. When we went up to our room I saw that it was full of roses, strawberries and my favourite Marina and The Diamonds song was playing. He took me out onto the balcony with a glass of bubbly in the snow and got down on one knee. He presented me with a stunning 1930’s diamond trilogy ring and I said Yes!

WEST BERLIN WEEKENDS

March 12, 2017

We’ve just had the sunniest weekend that Berlin has seen for a long while and it was wonderful, so I thought I’d share it here. I actually took my coat off outside, it felt liberating to be outdoors without the cold needling my face. Though the Berlin winters can feel dark and gloomy at times (with lots of Netflix), the summers are worth it, and if that little peep of sunshine that we had this weekend could brighten everyone’s day so much- imagine what months of it will bring?!

Over the weekend we hopped on the S-bahn and went to West Berlin, to Rogacki- an old market. It was built in the 1930’s and hasn’t changed since. Old locals stand around drinking wine, eating smoked fish or oysters whilst they put the world to rights. It looks like a rough and ready version of the market halls that you see in fancy department stores. Yet this is the original, real-deal.

We even made a friend called Briguitta who gave us wine then took us on a tour of the stalls, telling us how each fish was smoked and where it comes from. We bought delicious cheeses, smoked fish and red wine. There is a really cool vinyl shop near the back entrance which also looks like it has been stuck in a time warp since the 1970s. Nick bought three world-music vinyls which he was pretty happy about.

In fact, the whole area has been stuck in a time warp. It’s such a contrast to the edgy East Berlin where we live which is full of young people from all over the world claiming Berlin as their home. It’s random days out like this that make me love living in Berlin, you can continually discover such contrasting things in this city.

Top 5: Guide To Healthy Eating Spots In Berlin

February 26, 2017

When it comes to healthy eating, Berlin has the most choice out of any city I have been to bar LA. When you ask if a café serves none-dairy milk, the answer (nine times out of ten) is yes! Often with a quizzical look as to why you would even ask!?

You can easily find tasty goodies made from un-refined wheat and sugar. There are also lots of bio-marts and supermarkets that sell all of the hard to find ingredients listed in healthy recipes.

So when I’m looking for a delicious organic smoothie or a bowl bursting with superfoods I rarely struggle. Here are some of my favourite healthy eating places in Berlin …

Lokal – The food here is perhaps not healthy in a ‘raw food bowl’ kind of way. But, it is a farm to table restaurant with completely fresh and organic produce. I’m talking delicious natural wines, heavenly local ingredients and a menu that changes weekly based on what’s currently in season. It has a wonderfully warm atmosphere with friendly staff too. OMG it’s so good. I love going here for special evenings out. Be sure to book as it gets very busy.

Holy Flat – Holy Flat is a great little lunch spot with South American and European inspired healthy bowls and flatbreads. Everything I’ve tried here has been flavorsome and nutritious. There is a huge hand painted mural of a Stag on the wall here which is fun and the last time I went they were playing some pretty trippy music too.

Liquid Garden– This sweet little place specialises in healthy green smoothies. With the staff concentrating on just smoothies, it means that they are uber knowledgeable in that field and maintain a high standard of tasty drinks- which isn’t always a given. I like going here because it’s decorated with funky wallpaper and plants, they play cool music and it’s situated in Prenzlauer Berg- one of my favourite neighborhoods in Berlin with lots of cute cafes and shops to explore.

Goodies– Goodies is like a fast food takeaway but everything there is good for you. Every little detail has been considered, they use sustainable energy and the packaging is compostable. I love the labeling system which tells you the properties of each item. So whether you are vegan, gluten free, cutting out refined sugar or simply looking for a tasty treat that’s good for you, you will be able to find something here. I love getting a Berry Bang smoothie and superfood porridge to go.

The Bowl – This is one of my go-to clean eating spots in Berlin. It has super sleek décor that reminds me of  lunch spots in LA. It’s a nice place to eat both in the evening and during the day. I love the roasted brussel sprouts with cashew cheese and the sweet potato fries with organic ketchup. There is a great vegan supermarket below it called Veganz and a Goodies too (see above). The service can be a bit hit and miss, and you can’t book a table in the evening so you often have to wait, particularly at weekends but the food is great.

Let me know if you have any suggestions too because I’m always looking for new places to try!

BERLIN UPDATE: TRADITIONS TO MAKE A NEW CITY FEEL LIKE HOME

September 25, 2016

ledbylucy-berlin-flower-marketBerlin-Asparagus-market-blogledbylucy-market-berlin-1ledbylucy-berlin-street-artberlin-tiramisu17

You will never guess what? It has been a full year since Nick and I decided to make the leap and move to Berlin. It certainly doesn’t feel that long. I am often responding to the question ‘how long have you been here?’ with ‘six months’, because time has flown by. Some of you have been asking for an update on how we are settling in, so I thought our one year anniversary would be the perfect opportunity to fill you in.

Moving to Berlin was incredibly exciting and since we touched down a year ago we have been on a none-stop mission to find new places, discover hidden gems and see as much as possible. However, while thrilling, seeking out adventures doesn’t add up to the most homely, settled lifestyle. One year into the move and we have began to take pleasure in developing our own rituals and traditions here.

One of these things is going to the Saturday food market, stocking up on fresh veg and fish for the week ahead then cooking up an incredible dinner. The market is full of fresh produce and crafts like hand made pasta and artisinal cheeses. One of our most treasured stalls is the tiramisu and pizza stand. This place is run by two Italian guys, one makes the desserts and the other fries authentic, Napoli-style pizza right in front of you. The tiramisu is utterly dreamy and picking up a couple of pots for after dinner (or eating it immediately in the park) has become a regular occurrence – we found out later that it’s even gluten free!

You may have read that Nick loves his coffee (see this post for his top spots), and so this has also become one of our weekly routines. Every weekend we head out to try out a new coffee shop in a new district of Berlin. We usually spend the rest of the day exploring the local shops and sights. It’s been so much fun and has really helped us to get to know the different areas.

These little traditions are just small things that we take pleasure in, but it’s been a really important part of adapting to living in a new country and making it feel like our own home.

Have you recently moved to a new city or country? If so, do you have have any tips on making it feel like home?

TOP 5: GUIDE TO COFFEE IN BERLIN

September 10, 2016

coffe-berlinhappy-baristas-berlinHi guys, Nick here. While I’ve been behind the scenes on many a LedByLucy shoot and watched many great drafts develop from the sidelines this is my first actual solo post (intimidating!). Doing a post on here has always been something Lucy and I would talk about but the right idea never came along until now. Coffee is a huge passion of mine and while I don’t get into it in a geeky way (trust me, I have plenty of other geek moments over other things) I always seek out the best coffee places in new cities we visit and enjoy experiencing quality cups from people who know their craft.

The Berlin Coffee Festival arrived on our doorstep recently and so it seemed like a perfect time for me to jump in and write a post about the coffee shops I love in Berlin. All these places were all reppin’ at the festival and the experience was one which further stoked my passion to seek out great coffee. So, with no further ado, here are my Top 5 Favourite Coffee Shops in Berlin.

1. Silo

Silo is my regular place. I go there almost every weekend and get their amazing flat white or cortado. They use coffee from Fjord Coffee Roasters and the quality is just unbeatable.  I have never had a bad cup in 13 months and I see this as nothing short of small miracle. It’s also a known favorite of super-star DJ Richie Hawtin when he’s in town playing Berghain (which is just around the corner) and they do a super awesome breakfast too.

coffee-berlin-testing

2. Five Elephant

Five Elephant is often listed in the top coffee places in Berlin and frequently the best coffee place in Kreuzberg. The cafe is welcoming and the staff really know their stuff – they also speak German and English willingly. They change their blends pretty frequently and always like to talk you through their new products and make recommendations. Tip: The cheesecake here is legendary. Seriously. It’s utterly unreal.

3. Double Eye

This place is an institution. They recently celebrated their 15th Birthday and it’s easy to see why they have been a success for so long. This place is unlike many of the frequnetly touted third wave coffee shops in Berlin with their raw cut, treated wood furnishings and totems to hipster-dom (mounted fixie bike on the wall, anyone?). Double Eye resides in the somewhat sleepy, residential area of Schöneberg yet commands a loyal following from all around Berlin. Tip: Grab their ‘Super Spezial’ – a cortado style small cup with a double shot of coffee sandwiched by normal latte-style foam on the top and super-sweet Vietnamese-style condensed milk underneath.

4. Happy Baristas

Happy Baristas is another regular spot for me and sits just beyond Ostkreuz station. The place (which you can see in the first two pictures in this post) is really tastefully-decorated, the food is also pretty awesome. They took part in the Coffee Festival and hosted cuppings (which are kind of like ceremonial tasting sessions), and a special coffee cocktail menu. They also have really friendly staff. Highly recommended.

coffee-berlin-review

5. Father Carpenter’s Coffee Brewers

In a somewhat poetic circularity, this place is very tied to my number 1 choice, Silo. They both use Fjord Coffee Roasters for their brews and have a similar sensibility in great breakfasts and infallible quality. This place is located in Mitte, not too far from Alexanderplatz station and sits within a really beautiful courtyard which they share with another favourite brand of mine, Nudie Jeans. They have a main restaurant and a take away shop if you’re in a rush (warning: it gets busy on a weekend so get there early if you want breakfast).

Edit: Ok, so I had to come back to this post and add one in here. I found this place just as I was finalising the post and it quickly became a favourite weekend spot for me. I was struck by the friendly service and range of beans at Tres Cabezas (http://www.trescabezas.de/) on my first visit. Their regular roasting and variety of coffee has made this place a real point of interest for those who love fresh brews and high quality. In my view it’s not just one thing that makes this place great, it’s the whole package – be sure to try out the freshly baked Portuguese tarts too as they are life-changing.  Me and Lucy first found out about Tres Cabezas from their suppliers at the Berlin Coffee Festival who took us through a cupping of all their brews. They gave us a really insightful and passionate account of what they strive to achieve with their beans and what makes a great cup of coffee and this quality is so apparent when you take your first sip. The owners also opened a place in Mitte called 19grams which serves all their great coffees as well as some delicious-looking breakfasts I can’t wait to try.

coffee-tasting-berlinAs you can see, me and Lucy really enjoyed the festival (it was held at Markthalle Neun – our local food market hall). We got to learn a lot about roasts, what makes a good blend and the way in which roasters and traders judge quality and supply great coffee to our favourite shops. While Lucy didn’t drink any coffee (she did enjoy a good sniff, though) she was similarly enticed by all the aromas and expertise that goes into the perfect cup.

This outfit has pretty much been my uniform this summer. I’ve never had a yellow dress before but my best friend and bridesmaid to-be picked it out for me and I’ve hardly had it off since. I really love it, especially because I have a slight tan, it seems to go really well with that. I get a new pair of these chunky sandals in a different colour every summer because they are so comfortable and match everything, and the bag has been with me everyday too.

Do you have a go-to outfit for summer?

LIFE LATELY: PICTURE POSTCARDS

June 4, 2016

ledbylucy-berlin-lipstickcocktails-manchesterchester-twilightberlin-foodbotanical-liverpoolcocktail-berlinledbylucy-potsdamWhen I scroll through the archives of my blog, the life lately posts are actually my favourite. It’s so nice to see a roundup of happy memories from a certain period of my life. As I mentioned in this post, life has thrown a few curve-balls recently. So all the more reason to post this round-up of my favourite moments that got trapped on my camera while I was out of action.

1.My birthday suit! The entire outfit was chosen by my Mum as a gift for my birthday. Thanks Mum! Oh, and hello to the Hulk Hogan graffiti in Friedrichshain, Berlin.

2.Sophie sipping a cocktail in Turtle Bay, Manchester right before she gave me a haircut (professionals can cocktail and cut no problem). What a cutie.

3.Taking a walk with my Step-Dad at twilight in Chester. One of those moments where you just need to stop and enjoy the free show provided by nature.

4.Jazzy decor and a jazzy jumper. Saigon street food at District Môt , Berlin.

5.One of the perks of wedding planning is that you get to visit lots of stunning potential venues. This is Palm House in Sefton Park, Liverpool. It isn’t our ‘chosen one’ but it was a very strong contender. You must visit if you’re in the area, the 1930’s Peter Pan statues are the icing on the cake.

6.Who ever said that an alcohol free cocktail means fun free? This one was a winner, honest.

7.One of my many dream homes at Sanssouci Park, Potsdam.

FIVE BEAUTIFUL THINGS TO DO IN BERLIN

April 9, 2016

Berlin’s complex history, squat dwelling punks, plentiful graffiti and 24/7 club scene are often what first spring to mind when you picture Berlin. And whilst all of this enriches this cool city I often find myself craving a taste of the traditional beauty, you know the type that isn’t spray painted?

Here are some of my favourite, beautiful places to visit in Berlin so far, this list is ever growing. So please let me know your hidden gems too.

LedByLucy-Lake1. Müggelsee and Wansee Lake

Berlin is a landlocked city and the nearest coast is many miles away. However, beautiful lakes encircle Berlin.  My favourites are Müggelsee and Wansee, both have clean and clear water. Finding your own quiet little beauty spot on a sunny day in Berlin is so relaxing and peaceful.

Suggested Post: Müggelsee Lake 

LedByLucy-Blog-Engagement-Dress-White-Bocci-Berlin2. Bocci Gallery:

If you are looking for magical, twinkling beauty in Berlin then you must visit Bocci 79. It’s an impressive old courthouse with original features such as stained glass windows and grand spiral staircases. It is decorated entirely with magnificent lights designed by Bocci. This is a real hidden gem and you may find that you are the only visitors here, which makes it all the more special. A visit here leaves you feeling a little like you just stepped in and out of a surreal film, where everything is truly dazzling.

LedByLucy-Berlin-Forest-Blog3. Grunewald Forest:

One of the most amazing things about Berlin is that it is surrounded by forests. Every weekend we go to the forest for a bike ride and watch the leaves change colour, I love it. When it is particularly sunny we head to Grunewald, which is just so vast and magical. You may even spot a wild pig running through the undergrowth while you are there.

Vabali Spa4. Vabali Spa:

From the moment you pass through the 80 metre teak wooden entrance lined with bamboo leaves and babbling fountains you begin to relax and forget that you are in a city centre. vabali is an expansive private resort over 20,000 square meters in size. It has an outdoor area, a dining terrace, carved wooden statues, poolside lounging areas, cosy four poster beds for relaxing in, a heated outdoor pool, a freezing plunge pool and a variety of  saunas. It is a real oasis and escape from the city.

My Grandma always used to take us to the botanical gardens for days out there when we were little. I have such fond memories of escaping the cold into a tropical climate filled with exotic plants and flowers from all over the world. With these treasured memories in mind, I decided to visit Botanischer Garten Berlin, which boasts the second largest tropical greenhouse in the world.

As I entered through the gates and explored the vast grounds at Botanischer Garten my imagination began to run wild. Picturing the types of people that walked through these glasshouses and grounds when it was first built back in 1679.

We visited over the spring bank holiday weekend but I would love to return again in Summer to see the grounds in full bloom.

Parties are my absolute favourite, I just love everything about them, from picking the decorations to dancing the night away.

I knew that I wanted to wear white. Newlywed brides are constantly telling me that the big day is over in a flash. So I figured I wanted to make the most of my opportunity to wear white. I searched far and wide to find the right dress before deciding upon this one. I wanted something unusual in design that would be perfect for dancing in, and this ticked all of the boxes.

As I was heading out of the house I grabbed a pair of gold balerina pumps just in case my feet hurt from dancing later in the evening, and I’m so glad I did. They certainly came in handy.

Keep your eyes peeled for more posts on the party, I’ll be sharing details on the party location and decorations soon.

Location: Bocci 79 Showroom, if you are in Berlin you must visit. It is a totally beautiful showroom filled with contemporary light designs. This wasn’t the venue for our party, but it was perfect for capturing these shots of my dress. As you would expect at Bocci, the lighting is perfect
