Berlin. Always fun. Pre and post an excellent work training in Poland. A success also because I managed to relive Lala's neon birthday party of a few years ago by bringing Lala out. Oh and the party was meant for teenagers. Under age kids would have to show their parents' permission slips. How progressive haha. We got our ID's checked too 😋 Then there was another party at Gretchen before good ol' Tresor. And a late night zoom around on scooter just because...

I don't mourn the loss of celebs but for brains, I make an exception. Yesterday, we lost a giant. Professor M. Cherif Bassiouni was the godfather of international criminal law. As a law student, I spent many hours poring over many of his written work. Earlier this year I had the privilege to participate in an expert meeting at the Siracusa Institute in Sicily, Italy. The Institute was founded by Bassiouni. From his imposing picture in the main hallway, to the many newspaper clippings of him and the Arabic labelled coffee machines, Bassiouni's presence was felt. If he hadn't been too weak, he would have been at the Institute himself. The world has him to thank for advancing the rule of law and human rights. RIP Professor.

Sherri, meet Shirleen. Shirleen, meet Sherri. I look up to this woman. She is Sherri Goodman, (cue Wikipedia) one of the highest ranking women to serve in the US Dept of Defence - and also during the Clinton Administration. If you've watched the documentary called Age of Consequences, you'll understand why Sherri packs such a punch. It's worth the watch btw. Being female in a masculine environment does not come easy. The struggles are real. Anyhoo, I digress... I only wanted to say, viel glück deutschland! 🇩🇪🖤❤️💛 May Madam Merkel come out strong!

All that glitters is not gold - unless we're talking about my favourite ring or colour in general. Tum tum in, and mittens outs because summer is almost over. Sad face... .

A day at The Metropolitan. Each time I'm in New York, I leave a little bit more to explore for the next time I return. This time, I finally did The Met. Now that I've seen it, do I still have reasons to return? Heck yea! Tip to avoid the tourist trap: entry is by donation. One dollar is enough. Don't be shy about it. New Yorkers pay even less sometimes. Also, don't miss out on the fabulous view from the rooftop bar. Someday I'll have my make believe soirée there and all bunny lovers are welcomed🤗 .

Sup. I'm your perfect hair model. Hair had gotten mermaid length so I went in for my half yearly trim and head massage today. Who wants to book my hair six months from now?💆🏻Very simple: I go for the same old trim, layers, waves and don't-you-dare-get-rid-of-my-volume. I'll flip if it's not right. Don't mind my super low cowl neck top. It's actually back to front. Why? Cos I'm cool😋One shirt, two ways lol

Weekend done right: tired legs from dancing, a mild headache, a full belly, social quota exceeded, a discernible slump and a look that says it all. I introduce to you, my spirit animal of the day: this (yellow) mongoose! Although I think this fella was mislabelled by the animal park; I really don't think it looks like the yellow mongoose unless obesity makes all mongooses rotund and so much cuter. Hahha. .

A look at Lausanne, Switzerland. A city slicker like me can sometimes appreciate a good old European city. Living in a flat country, it was a nice welcome to see mountains in the distance and to walk the hilly streets of this French speaking Swiss city. Like Geneva, which is a little over half an hour away by train, Lausanne is quite international. It's actually the smallest city in the world to have a rapid transit system although one could reasonably walk the whole city in under two hours. .

Two weeks ago had me in a somber mood. I'd flown that weekend into London for work the following week. It had only been a few days after the Grenfell Tower tragedy. Since I've been to London many times before, I thought to spend what would have normally been a fun weekend on volunteering instead. Wasn't sure what I signed up for when I indicated that I wanted to be at the Grenfell site to volunteer. Victims have been receiving a massive amount of donations from good folks so I imagined myself sorting out the donated items at the community centre. Eventually I ended up volunteering at a community art centre. They had planned on an art bazaar before the fire happened but it didn't make sense to selfishly carry on with the bazaar idea. Instead, they decided to raise money for the victims.
Here's a pensive picture to illustrate my mood when I volunteered at the clay modelling corner. Children and parents visited the centre over the weekend, also coinciding with Father's Day, to participate in arts and craft activities, purchase art and make art. The last picture is of what I made for the Desert of Dreams: what I would have wanted in a desert - a pool and much love... .

So happy to see this face again after some years apart. We could have met in Dubai that one time or even in The Hague the other time but timing wasn't right but this summer however... and now that I know you're in London, your phone will buzz if I'm coming to town, @ines_km 🙃😘.

If Abraham Lincoln were alive today, would he be considered a hipster just by his looks alone? Here's a piece called Up to No Good. The Lincoln Memorial is both peaceful and serene when night falls. No tourists getting in the way for a picture, the cool summer breeze, the serenity of the Reflection Pool and basically no one. However if you dare jump the low rails and reach for Lincoln's foot, I bet you my bottom five dollars that the cops will magically appear from behind the walls and attempt to take you into custody. Lol. Wasn't me. .

Last 24 hours in Miami was eventful to say the least. I almost took over an Uber ride as I turned Hulk green with impatience, lost my phone for about an hour (the last picture was taken when my phone was lost - the mystery!), Coconut Grove-Coral Gables-Wynwood it on the last night, danced the night away, slept two hours, caught the morning rays for one final tan, miraculously made it to the airport, got offered a seat next to a captain but took the empty row instead and still have some cash to spare! Anyone looking for a buddy to Miami? You're looking at your next tour guide😝 My price? A return flight ticket🙃

No filter. I woke up like this. Maybe I'm even sleep walking...😴 A black silk negligee, furry bedroom slip-ons and tossed hair after a pit stop at @Sephora make for every reason for people to start asking about my outfit here in DC. This fantastic yellow dotted beauty is @yayoikusama0 pumpkin sculpture in the @hirshhorn garden. I arrived in DC just as the exhibition was closing and I was too late!😭 #infinitekusama .

You. Shall. Not. Pass. Such is 🍊 power. Barricades have been set up to push the crowd further away from the fences. Nonetheless a beautiful day in DC. Hardly anything to complain about when it's spring here. .

One of those nights where one starts off glam and as the night progresses, the heels come off and on comes the chucks. Before you know it, you're at the third party, it's sunrise; the flower shops are getting ready for the day and as one tramples home, the sky drizzles, your Metrocard expires so you jump the turnstile and you wake up with bruises... Fantastic. Last weekend in NYC😩

Not whipping out a fancy yoga pose but when I'm in the Big Apple, I always make my pilgrimage to this amazing spot in DUMBO 🙌 The blue skies (on a good day) juxtaposed with Manhattan Bridge's teal coloured steel, the flanking of the red brick walls of the buildings on Washington Street and that little bit of shrubbery makes for the perfect frame picture. .

Detroit. A cultural excursion. There is something eerily beautiful about this city. It may still be seen in a state of urban decay after filing for a major bankruptcy a few years ago but visiting such sweet oases as The Detroit Institute of Arts and Slow's for a magnificent BBQ lunch spread show some signs of hope. Fun fact: not only the birth place of Motown but it's also the founding city of techno!😳Didn't had time to savour this little bit of history...
