If you follow me on social media you’ll know I’ve just come back from a few days in Berlin! Berlin is a place that’s never really intrigued me – until I discovered the Bikini Hotel. tranquil19

The Bikini Hotel is in the top 100 design hotels in the world. It is jungle themed and one side of the hotel is actually complete glass so you can get a full view of the Berlin Zoo which also just happens to be in the hotel’s back garden pretty much!

The hotel is full of quirky little features including your own bicycles in your room to ride around the city in, hammocks, electronic bathtubs with an in-tub sound system and insightful books scattered around the hotel and your room in case you fancy a read with titles such as ‘How to be an Elegant Gentleman’.  Not to mention the elevator having the soundtrack of David Bowie along with electronic artwork moving around the walls. IMG_2941tranquil14tranquil8tranquil13tranquilOur room was an XL Urban Room. Which meant it was facing the city. The main feature point was the extreme, grey URBAN bathroom with the HUGE electronic bathtub gracing the middle of the room. Unfortunately we made such a mess in our room (my boyfriend doesn’t seem to grasp the concept that clothes can go in a wardrobe….not the floor haha) – I didn’t think it was best to photograph it so I photographed another room for y’all. Everything is the same as our room except our bathroom was a hell of a lot funkier haha!tranquil5tranquil3tranquil4tranquil6tranquil1One of the main features of the hotel is the infamous Monkey Bar. People come from all over and queue for a loooong time to get into the popular bar – one of the perks of being a hotel guest is that you gain instant access with your keycard. Smooth. The bar faces the Berlin Zoo and is honestly the best atmosphere I’ve ever witnessed. tranquil18IMG_2984tranquil20tranqul21This is the hotel ground floor BTW. OMG!tranquil16And little features like this didn’t go amiss… tranqul11IMG_2954tranquil9tranquil15 Our stay overall was so fun. This hotel is full of so many amenities that you don’t want to step outside! The staff was ever so tentative and nothing was ever too much to ask.

Oh and did I mention the hotel has it’s very own shopping centre… with the CHICEST stores that stock designers such as Moschino, Comme Des Garcons, Vans and many more. tranqulil12

I also did this shoot whilst in Berlin…

We also ventured to Mitte and I found my dream store where you could make your own jewellery. The beads and accessories were to-die-for kitsch and featured every sort of charm you could ever wish for from life-like miniature cats to mini records with Michael Jacksons face on it. This is the necklace I made. I also got a bracelet but I’m piecing it together myself as I thought it would be fun… I clearly like to make life difficult.

I should say Berlin was a success!…xo

Still in sunny LA. I’m staying at friends but I spent past couple of nights in a cool art deco hotel and interestingly enough – it turns out Marilyn Monroe used to live at this exact hotel! She lived here for 3 years and there’s many iconic glamour shoots of hers that were shot here also. Thought that was pretty cool seeing as it’s such an unknown hotel.marilyn-monroe-beverly-carlton-hotel

BACK TO THE CLOTHES. Wearing my new favourite roll neck from Nobody’s Child who i’m loving right now.. I blogged about them last week too. BUT I’m pairing this roll neck with my epiiiiiic new leather piece. You all know how much I love a leather jacket… this is what dream are seriously made of. IMG_7663IMG_7667IMG_7661

So here’s a little shopping tip for all you fashionistas. I love sharing a good old shopping secret with you all! On Sunday I took a trip to Rokit vintage store in Brick Lane for a little shopping spree! Londons flooded with vintage stores but theres only actually a selected few worth going to that isn’t just full of junk – Rokit being one of them. They have locations spread all over London but Brick Lane is actually blessed with two stores on the same street. Here’s a sneak peak of what to expect inside the store and what I bought! I looooove it!
