My infinite love for the mosaic artist began 3 years ago while spending some time in Paris. I couldn’t stop documenting his art work in the streets of the French capital and even bought a small canvas copy to take home with me. The love for Space Invader’s work soon inspired my work as a communication consultant and evolved into an award-winning online project for one of the big players in sportswear, juxtaposing pleasure with the necessary. Offline, I continued to search for his work on my visits to Paris, infecting friends with the fever – but no flame would ever be hotter than mine was for the small colorful tiles that mean the world to me.

Yesterday, a friend of mine gifted me with this unique piece of accessory – making me a cheerleader for a Springlovin’. “I found it in Thailand and it made me think of you.” The fact, that I was figuratively with her in South-East Asia by the sight of the little monster made the day as perfect as can be. You know, it’s just as they say: Good things come in small portions.

Now, I’ll have something to remember you Miss H.!!! Thank U L.O.V.E.

FINALLY!!!! New trainers. (Model: MIZUNO Wave Inspire)


These past few weeks I have literally been running my a$§ off – not because Spring is approaching but because a dear friend of mine asked me to run the half marathon with her. (Yes, I don’t say no to a friend’s request.) The training has been hard in the beginning –  running with outdated worn-out trainers in freezing -8°C or fighting sickness. But things do come together in the end, they say, if you’re working hard enough. My body slowly adapts to the torture of 2 hours of running, the asphalt becomes a familiar friend and the temperatures are headed towards milder numbers. All that sweat and preparation finally pays off so a thank you to my feet was overdue.

I had my feet and running style analysed today and went home with the silver-neongreen Mizuno trainers you see above. They are light as air and should give me an extra boost of motivation in these final 3 weeks of training. I can hardly wait for our first time as a team – hitting the streets together.


Sightseeing or torture?

I enclosed the route I’ll be running on the 3rd April in Berlin. The route will lead us from the center of East-Berlin to the center of West-Berlin and back. It could be beautiful passing all those sights and parks if only there wasn’t the distance of 21km to complete successfully.

First Things First ::: The Good Haul

There were plenty of gifts involved that I enjoyed VERY much – there wasn’t even an attempt of anything that did not get me excited. Here are some examples of the things that will continue to make the life of a blogette even more fun.

Somehow nail polish and jewelry was also involved – WHY WOULD ANYBODY GET ME THOSE? 😉

THANX to my friends and family that made this day truly one that will be remembered as the best b-day of my adult life (so far – let’s see what next year will do for me :-)).



New color alert ::: Beth’s Blue by models own

Posted in Uncategorized by strytllng on May 3, 2010

I have a friend that I would like to dedicate this post to. She may be the most obsessed person when it comes to nail polish but I surely appreciate her sharing her amazing collection.
This girl always owns the IT-color before Chanel rips it off 6 months after they got in style. Her collection may count well over 200 bottles and while I was her houseguest last week, she got me infected with blue. Not just any blue but models own ‘Beth’s Blue’. It’s a very light blue with a hint of purple and my cherry on top was this little Sponge Bob nail art she placed so kindly on my left middle finger. What girl well in her twenties wouldn’t appreciate this treatment???


*Sorry but the pictures were taken a week after the nails were manicured*

Dear camera fairy…

Posted in Uncategorized by strytllng on April 1, 2010

… I just broke my beloved old Samsung Digimax L50’s heart and now it is dead. I have no idea what to do without a camera and I need a new one ASAP. I know that my birthday is so far away but maybe you can help me decide on something new? It should make excellent photos and good videos. I don’t want it to be huge and could I please get it under 450€?

Here is what caught my eye so far: Canon Powershot G10

Do you have any experiences with it? What would you recommend as alternatives?

The girl is BAG

Posted in Uncategorized by strytllng on March 30, 2010

Lovers, friends and random strangers: I am back from my (too) short vacation in Paris. Don’t fear this post because I won’t bore you about ALL the exciting things I did as I will cut straight to the important parts – THE SHOPPING. I did some great deals in my favorite vintage stores in Rue de la Verrerie and Rue Sainte Croix de la Bretonnerie which I want to share with you as promised. Trust me, you don’t even want to know how good of a bargain these babies were. All you need to know is that they just moved in with me and that they will keep me good company this summer

This will be about the bags and the bags only! I am more into bags than shoes while on my vintage hunts because I just don’t like the thought of walking in someone else’s shoes.

The Aigner Bag

Ingenious lock system

I love cross-shoulder bags. They are great for everyday use and clubbing because they keep your hands free for the more important things – drinks, food, phones, (fill in the blank). This one is an original Aigner bag which must have been barely used for there are no signs of heavy usage. I was so lucky that I got it. I had spotted it from across the room when some girls arrived at the purse stand first and didn’t seem to appreciate this hidden treasure at all. UFF.

Blue Velvet + Pencil Case

What’s there not to like about blue velvet? This bag will add some color to my collection. To my surprise a matching pencil case was hidden inside of it. This baby will be used as a clutch and turn into a purse when I will get tired of carrying it around – but when would that be the case?

The Clutch

This Riccone clutch reminded me of rusty-brown old saddles and the chair Carrie bought from Aiden in Sex and the City and he tells her that the stripped the leather of an old pullman car seat and all the lines from usage and the smell can tell a story. And that my friends is exactly why I like vintage bags – they tell you a story. That and the fact that these are affordable goodies with a good chance that you won’t meet another one like it.

Your Strytllr

I am about to head out to a long deserved vacation to P. P. P. P. PARIS!!!

Those of you who have been to Berlin know that vintage shopping is way to expensive in B-town. Even though Berlin is host to an entire generation hunting for and expressing themselves through vintage clothing. I am packed and all set to go on an over the top vintage shopping spree in my favorite vintage stores in the Marais. I promise you all to go nuts over that familiar smell when entering the stores and grab the best things for myself. I also promise to report back on what I could get hold of – ‘kay?

Truly Yours – Strytllr.

Easy as a breeze

Posted in Uncategorized by strytllng on March 18, 2010

I just got back from an evening full of highlights. First of all the interview with Ivan Rodic (Facehunter), then a very long and intimate evening with friends that I haven’t seen for a long time. I feel very happy right now – I feel like this was close to perfect and the birds tweeting like they only do at springtime made me smile all the way home at 4am on a breezy March morning in Berlin. The video expresses my current mood. Deep melodic joyful melancholy because you know that this moment is perfect but will never last. Just like the birds in the video we are here to inspire and create – everyday anew.
