Beauty Routine | Mangobluete Life & Style Blog

So do you all have a catchy tune now? I know, the correct lyrics go like this with “…bass”. Never mind. I worked on my make-up-routine and changed some things and skipped few steps. Because less is more as you all know.  For example I stopped applying my beloved eyeliner which I mastered over the past 10 years. And I …


My Visual Kyoto Diary

Fashion, Photography, Travels

Kyoto, Japan 2015 | Mangobluete Life & Style Blog

Kyoto – culturally and historically one of the most important cities in Japan. Very traditional, much quieter than Tokyo, beautiful and very picturesque and yet rich in contrast. Every corner was picture perfect and I couldn’t stop being amazed. I felt like on a filmset of an old Japanese movie about Geishas – sorry – Geikos. And the actors walk around in …

Robbie Williams Bratislava 2015

Oh yes, I still remember this moment like it was yesterday: an evening in Dubai in the year of 2000, me holding a Bravo Hits something CD in my hand, in the other a walkman. I’m wearing headphones and suddenly I hear violins, a voice and am sold. Robbie Williams – Millennium.  So this is how it all started. I’m …


Where to stay in Kyoto?

Travels, Where To Stay In ... ?

The Ritz Carlton Kyoto | Mangobluete Life & Style Blog

The Ritz-Carlton, Kyoto. This was – and I’m not exaggerating – the best hotel I’ve ever stayed in! And it’s not because of the most comfortable bed, the big room, the amenities, the complimentary water, tea or coffee, the view, the big bathtub; even the “welcome” strawberries in the room were perfect!!! In the end it’s the details that matter. The concierge …


Torta Caprese


Torta Caprese | Mangobluete Life & Style Blog

Today I would like to share a very special recipe with you: Torta Caprese! All you need is a handful of ingredients (but only the best quality please!), a little time (30 minutes anyone?) and to be careful with baking – at the end you will have a delicious chocolate cake without flour! Yes! Because we use grated almonds. But …


Lunch @ Tempura Kondo, Tokyo

Tempura Kondo Tokyo

A quick 2-Michelin-star-lunch in Tokyo? Why not? That’s what we thought and asked our concierge to try and book a table at Kondo. Days later we were two of 10 people sitting at the Kondo counter, in front of us three chefs. They cooked the freshest tempura – even the prawns were still alive (and you also eat the crunchy prawns head …


My Travel Buddy

Louis Vuitton Bosphore Backopack | Mangobluete Life & Style Blog

One day before our trip to Asia I bought this little fellow here. It was on my radar for a long time now – too long! I wish I’ve bought the Louis Vuitton Bosphore backpack much earlier. It’s big enough for my MacBook (13″), iPad mini, cam (Leica X2), travel guide, purse, passport and other stuff I need on the …


A little Tokyo Guide

Tokyo Guide | Mangobluete Life & Style Blog

I know I know I’m talking way to much about Tokyo but I’m so in love with this city that I hope I will inspire you to go there too because it’s so amazing! It’s easy to get around if you speak English, are friendly, not afraid of new things, do your homework and do a little bit of research …
