The end of City Talk...

Munich /
Saturday, 25 February 2017


City Talk, a place to create, to inspire, to dream but also kind of a diary for keeping my memories, photos and thoughts, which I shared with the world.

I started this blog as an online journal of my travels. Beginning with Paris the city of love and lights through so many other beautiful places such as London, Singapore, Hong Kong, Barcelona and ending it again with Paris.

During the last years, I also shared a lot of outfits and beauty moments, because they are and have always been my passion. Another thing I am also passionate about is music.
In “2012” I posted my “All I want for Christmas is you” cover and I got such a lovely feedback and support about it. I have so many wonderful memories of my time with City Talk, and furthermore, I am really glad what I could all experienced and learned from this blog.

By the time my posts got more irregular because I never found the time for City Talk anymore and I always defended myself with no time, but they say that “It is not about “having” time, it’s about making time”. In the end, I grew out of City Talk, and I just couldn’t identify myself with it anymore. I changed a lot during the last few years, and I decided for myself to end this chapter of my life.
I want to say thank you! Thanks for every single one of you who joined me on this journey through the last years. Thanks for every single nice comment and thanks to all your support! I really, really appreciate it, and you can’t imagine how much it means to me!

You know what they also say? “Old doors close so new ones can open!” Cheers to that fact I would like to announce you the new project, I have been working on with a friend for the last months! I couldn’t really say goodbye to blogging because it became a huge part of my life. So because of that may I introduce you to Ly Mademoiselle!

A brand new lifestyle platform about travel, fashion, lifestyle, and everything a 20 something is going through in life! Curious? Then head straight over to lymademoiselle.com.
Again, thanks to every single one of you and thanks for everything! See you soon on Ly Mademoiselle!

Love, Ly <3





Ready for Oktoberfest 2016!

Munich /
Saturday, 3 September 2016

I strongly need a study break at the moment, so I'm using my time productively and decided to write a new blog post. In exactly two weeks it's finally Oktoberfest time again!
If you have never been to the Oktoberfest, then you should give yourself a hint and visit it at least once in your life. It's a crazy but also incredible time. For today I created three different looks, as an inspiration, for how you can wear your Oktoberfest outfits.
Some of you might still remember the "Oktoberfest (Wiesn & Wasen)" project I did with Julia and Laura last year. Unfortunately, we couldn't do a new shoot in Dirndls this year, and I'm pretty sure my girls would also have loved to do it again, but we lived all over the world this year. As you know, I was in Paris, and Julia and Laura, on the other hand, they went to Madrid and Valencia. But we are all back in Munich now, and we are ready for the Oktoberfest 2016!

Summer Days Outfit + Life Update

Stuttgart /
Monday, 8 August 2016


Hello my lovies,
My last life update has been a while now, so I figured it's time for a new one.
As you already know, I lived the first four months of this year in Paris for my abroad semester. A post with all my tips and organisational steps for the abroad semester will come online soon and all my Paris post you will find here.
In September I will be a student in the 5th semester and exactly in one year I'm going to be in the 7th semester, which will also be my last one and my second abroad semester. For the overseas abroad semester, I would like to go to Hong Kong. After my hopefully successful completed seven semesters, I would like to do an internship for six months in Singapore then and if everything works out the way I planned, then I'm going to study my master degree with my best friend in autumn 2018.

Paris In Four Months

Paris /
Thursday, 28 July 2016

At the beginning of this year, it was time for a new life chapter. On the 4th of January, a good friend of mine dropped me at the airport in Stuttgart and my flight was taking me to Paris for my abroad semester. The city of love... It's hard to describe the love a girl has for Paris. A fairytale destination we all wish to visit someday. Crêpes, macarons, French wine, and the sparkling Eiffel Tower. Everything about Paris is a bless.
New year, new city, a new university, new life. Was I nervous? Just a little bit. I already lived abroad once, and it was also for my academic career, so actually, it wasn't a huge change. Also, I had to move to Munich for my studies as well. (My post about my "London Experiences", which was the first time when I went abroad, you can find here.)
When I arrived at Charles de Gaulle, there was already a kind driver waiting, for taking me to my apartment.
