Who is Julia?
Hi, I´m Julia from the lovely Munich and I am a fulltime lifestyle, fashion and beauty blogger, a job I do with all my heart. Munich is the perfect place to do whatever you like. In the summertime you can go for a surf on the famous Eisbachwelle in the English Garden and in the wintertime, it takes just an hour to go to the Alps for snowboarding and skiing.
You like blogging because…
It´s my biggest passion to inspire people with what I love most.
Your favorite three pieces in your wardrobe right now are…
My boyfriend jeans, my Chanel bag ( I’m so proud of it:-)) and my simple white basic shirt combined with a leather jacket and pumps. That´s my favorite all-round look.
Your favorite fashion brands are…
Twin-Set, Zara, 5preview, Cos and much more.
Where do you like to to go shopping?
I like to go to the Glockenbachviertel around the Gärtnerplatz. There you can find a lot of stylish and individual boutiques, concept and pop-up stores.
Describe Munich in a few words.
Munich is Bavaria at its best. The place to be for urban young fashionistas and also fans of a more traditional lifestyle.
