i had a rare visitor: my mother was here for a few days. we did so many things, one of them was a visit to the berlin botanic gardens. we spent most of the time inside the glasshouses, even though the weather was glorious, but made up for it by having coffee outside on a bench in the sun. the garden itself is so big, we only ventured a little bit into it. next time, i'll go when it's overcast to take pictures of the asian pacific parts of the park. you should have seen the trees: they looked like ancient ink drawings.

what are your sunday plans? i'll have to work, but will also meet a. for coffee and maybe go to the fleamarket, let's see how it goes.

p.s.: what are your favourite fashion sites? i'm a bit bored with the sartorialist.

today I'm going to help my mother with her computer, and maybe take my camera for a walk :-) hope your sunday is more play than work!

beautiful pictures kristina. one day i am going to come back to berlin and visit more of the amazing city.

i had to work today, also. very busy lunch shift!

i follow my favourite stores on facebook, and they post their new lookbooks and the such like on facebook, also some have other blogs they link to. i am not a fan of the satorialist, he thinks everyone over a size 0 is fat. bleurgh.

Hope you enjoyed your weekend and got to the market.
I wish I could find a new fashion blog too, one that would show fashion but clothes that most of us would walk down the street in!;)
Thanks for the trip to the gardens, I look forward to seeing more of it in the future, the trees sound stunning xx
