Monday Update #36

Monday Update #36

It’s been too long and I’m finally back with updating you on a weekly basis. I have to admit that the last weeks have been the craziest, most exciting but also busiest weeks of my life and lately I was a little overwhelmed with organizing pictures as well as thoughts for my blog posts.


BUT I can guarantee you that everything will change for the better and I’m sooooo so happy to tell you that my little sister, soulmate and one of my best friends Laura will join me and Alex for the next months in order to work with us on the blog! I guess I told you before that my sisters Laura and Nora mean the world to me and I’ve always secretly hoped to be able to spend even more time with them! Even though Laura is my younger sister, she clearly is the more structured and probably also more mature than I am. 😉 I’m truly proud because she just mastered all here medicine exams with the best grades possible and before she will become the best doctor one will ever see (so sure about that, because she truly is a genius!), I’m so happy that Laura liked the idea to have a few months of breaking out of her medicine career and be part of our crazy ohhcouture adventure. As Laura is so smart and organized, we will finally post everything we experience way more frequently, in two languages (and without any typos;)) and Laura will also force Alex an me to take some time during our travels to close our laptops so that we will have more date time! 🙂 I can’t even tell you how excited I’m about this new chapter and I can’t wait for the first adventure with Alex and Laura by my side!

– R E V I E W –

Where to begin… 😉 My last update was about Paris fashion week and so much has happened in the meanwhile. Let’s start with projects! One of my favorite project I’ve been working on was shooting a Christmas campaign for Michael Kors. We headed to the shooting location straight from the airport when we came back from Marrakesh and it was an amazing experience. We were shooting for the brand itself and one of my favorite magazines and Alex was the photographer for the campaign! I’ll publish everything soon and I’m already super excited to share it with you!

Another project I loved was being part of a Christmas campaign for Monnier Freres. The shooting was in Paris and we were five bloggers, representing different characters for the holiday campaign. My first character was inspired by my Marrakech travels and the second one was the ice princess which was really exciting because I always wanted to be a princess! ;P

One of my favorite trips in the meanwhile was my short getaway to Marrakech. It was only a few days, but enough time to take my breath away. It was the first time after Santorini (and probably Tulum), that I was struggling with being love sick after leaving a place and it will only be a matter of time before returning to this magical city. 😉 You can find my favorite pictures from Marrakech in my Marrakech travel diary (here). After Marrakech we headed to London for appointments (see the posts here, here & here) and to Paris for the Monnier Freres shooting. Afterwards we had some days in Germany for different jobs and press days before we headed to LA for some meetings. As LA is quite far away I decided to combine the journey with a short trip to a destination I truly love:  M e x i c o! The wifi in Mexico was so bad and we missed the chance to buy sim cards but I can tell you that there will be a lot more about Valladolid & Tulum coming up soon! 🙂

We only had a few days in Mexico as we had scheduled some great projects in Germany for the following days. Alex and I shot for Tiffany for the first time which was a dream come true! Another reason to fly back home early was the grand opening of the luxury department of the Alsterhaus in Hamburg. As I’ve been born and raised in Hamburg, I’m always more than happy to see something new and exciting happening in my home town. And even though Hamburg is an amazing place to go shopping, I’ve always missed the variety when it comes to my favorite designers. Alsterhaus celebrated the reopening on the 16th of November and welcomed some great designers such as Valentino, Balenciaga, Céline, Saint Laurent, Jimmy Choo and many more! I clearly didn’t want to miss this and I had a fun evening in my home town and was reunited with some blogger friends I haven’t seen in quite a while! In case you are visiting Hamburg you definitely have to step by and visit the Alsterhaus. It doesn’t only have an amazing selection of food and sweets, great mid price brands such as Sandro and Maje but also the new designer hall to shop the latest bags and accessoires in a beautiful atmosphere. I’m truly excited about this new shopping destination in my home town! 🙂

– P L A N S –

The next days we’ll spending in Salzburg, where we will have a speaking slot during the Online Marketing Experts Conference. As Alex and I both worked in online marketing before we started, we both enjoy being speakers for social media topics. Afterwards I’ll be heading to an exciting destination with Alex and Laura: Panama! Lufthansa invited me to discover this country which has always been on my bucket list. As you know how much I love traveling, you can probably imagine how excited I’m about this upcoming trip. It’ll be crazy days because on our way back from Panama I’ll grab my luggage in Frankfurt and head straight to Paris to visit my first Victoria’s Secret show! Isn’t that exciting? The Victoria’s Secret show was one of these events I’ve been obsessed with for years and I can’t wait for some amazing days with Ciroc in Paris! Excitement level 10 for this two upcoming trips! :):):)

– N E W  I N  &  W I S H L I S T –

I will definitely make use of my short time in Germany to do some shopping! For Tulum I got some summerly pieces at Revolve when I was in LA. When you are looking for clothes to take to a vacation, Revolve is always a really good idea. I felt for a striped jumpsuit, the cutest romper and a lacy black dress. I was also able to choose my favorite piece from Monnier Freres after the shooting and decided to go for my latest Valentino obsession: The Valentino rockstud spike bag in black. I also just ordered a pair of flats from the MR for Net-A-Porter collection and I can’t wait to see them! I also uploaded the shopping section with some new favorites (here)! And I also feel like I found another perfect white blouse on Asos… You know, you can never have enough perfect white blouses! 😉 Asos always has amazing things and I shopped one sweater I’m totally obsessed with: huge knit and backless! I’ve also teamed up with Pinterest and you can find a Christmas wishlist I’ll update regularly: here.



It honestly feels so good to share with you more in weekly updates again and I can’t wait to read from you! xx Leonie

    It’s truly inspiring to see you grow as a reminder to keep following my dreams. I mean, every single picture of yours is perfect and completely out of this universe! I would love to know the apps and computer programs (if any0 that you are using to edit them (a tutorial?). Keep up the I-N-C-R-E-D-I-B-L-E work.

    Love, Linoya from

    Huhu liebe Jana,
    Tulum ist nur ca. 1,5h von Cancun und es wirkt alles sehr fortschrittlich! Wir haben dieses Mal auch einen riiiiiiesen Supermarkt mit allem fürs Babys und Kinder entdeckt und das nur wenige Meter von Tulum! Im Vergleich zum restlichen Mexico wirkt alles auch sehr durchdacht und organisiert. Das Azulik ist ein Adult Only Hotel, aber ich kann mir vorstellen, dass es auch ganz wundervolle Hotels für Adults+ gibt! Ich kann Tulum jedenfalls nur wärmstens empfehlen! <3

  27. Leonie
    20. November 2016 / 22:34

    Jaaaa, ich freu mich sooo sehr! Wir waren echt grade an einem Punkt, wo wir so dringend ein bisschen Unterstützung benötigen könnten. Und die eigene Schwester an Board ist wirklich ein Traum! <3<3<3

    Oh wow, die Fotos erinnern mich total an eine amerikanische Teenie Serie 😀

    Hi Leonie,
    wow, was du da wieder erlebt hast!! Da bekommt man wieder einmal Fernweh pur.
    Witzig, dass wir schon oft die gleichen Orte bereist haben.
    Die Bilder aus LA sind super… Vermisse die alte Heimat sehr!! Und von Tulum und den Colorados ganz zu Schweigen. Die Colorados sind wirklich ein magischer Ort…Gehört für mich zu jeder Mexiko-Reise dazu. Mexiko steht für Februar wieder auf meiner Reiseliste.

    Bin gespannt, wo es dich demnächst hin verschlägt.

    Safe travels for you,


  34. 26. November 2016 / 15:05

    Ahh my fav Notting Hill and its colours <3 I absolutely adore it!
