puma footlocker lois opoku
Every year the same old story: Foot Locker's Week of Greatness. It's a become a tradition here on the blog and I never get tired of it. Foot Locker releases a crazy bunch of super cool sneakers and I get to highlight my favorite here on the blog. This time I chose the Puma Fierce that I styled up in four completely different ways. Can we just take a minute to acknowledge the fact that Puma has made a major comeback this year? Ever since Rihanna took over it's been going uphill. Well played Puma, well played. Of course Foot Locker released a few new Pumas (like the Puma Fierce I'm wearing) during Week of Greatness, along with some sick Jordans and Adidas NMDs, some in exclusive colour ways to Foot Locker.
In honour of Week of Greatness I decided to show you 4 different ways I'd rock sneakers. Here is my week in sneakers lookbook. Friday's we wear high heels to party :P
If you know me, you know I hardly ever wear heels IRL. Nothing goes over the comfort of a sneaker..
But keep reading to see the looks! :D

Palazzo pants kitty flats Streetstyle Lois Opoku
Been enjoying the last couple of days as summer decided to finally make an appearance. It's hard to believe it's October already and I'm turning 21 in 4 days. This year has passed by so quickly. It feels like my last birthday was just a couple of weeks back, but a complete year has passed. A complete year.
University is starting again in a week plus minus a couple of days, but it'd be like it's starting in a few hours given how I perceive time these days. Is it just me or is it like everything is sped up? Life is sped up? It's like life is stuck on rush hour. Like your thumb is stuck on the 4x fast-forward button on the remote control and there is no way to release it.
Time is not what time used to feel like.
This year I'm just gonna go through with uni, go to all classes, write all exams. Get it over with. Before I know it I'll have my bachelor degree in Business IT. It will feel like a few weeks. Life and time is passing me by and I have a hard time making the best out of it. Living in the now. People alway say "Live in the present! Enjoy every Moment"
How do they do it when you've lost complete feel for the measure of time. I for one feel in complete dissolution with time.

Lois Opoku Summer Outfit Berlin lisforlois
Summer is definitely coming to an end in Berlin, although we enjoy the occasional hot days every now and then which were truly missed during the actual summer months and honestly it feels like August again. Something like September Summer?
I'm loving the backdrop of today's pictures. This huge ass fountain completely out of place. I have walked passed it. Several times. Often actually.
Anytime I'm on my way to my best Friends house after gym.

Sometimes you walk through the world, blind, completely shutting out your surroundings, and then you open your eyes and discover treasures. Treasures that have been there all along. Treasures you've seen ever so often before, but never took a minute to appreciate. And sometimes you happen to have you're camera along with you and you can capture those places, that moment.
It looks like I'm in Bali right? Oh Bali, I so desperately want to discover you.
This is my little Bali getaway right here in Berlin.
This is as close as I'll get to Bali this year.
I'm coming for you next year, Bali.
I've started saving.

Lois Opoku green dress Michael Kors bag lisforlois
These shots were taken right after my morning at the Uniqlo store for the Ines de La Fressange collections launch and my awesome afternoon with Levis. I'm totally loving the reflections in the huge windows, perfectly matching to one of my favorite dresses. This dress is a piece from the last ASOS Africa collection. I got it at the ASOS sample sale where every dress cost 5€! (So lucky I grabbed it before Hadnet Tesfai (truly beautiful German TV personality), because she was really digging that dress and couldn't stop complementing me on my find.) Btw I never really revealed what I end up buying at that Sample Sale, but this is one of those dresses. Trust me, Sample Sales are THE B.E.S.T.

Dream now Lois Opoku black white look monochrome lisforlois
I spent Saturday with Mali, Tissi and Joeva at the Blogger Bazaar. The entrance fee of 8€ was way too much, but we kinda hung around until 8 downing as many Ciroc drinks and Haägen Dasz Cookies & Cream as we could and chilled out on the roof top until we made amends that there was no way we could get those 8€ back or make it worthwhile. Kudos to the girls from Blogger Bazaar for organizing everything and making it happen, no doubt, but those 8€ were definitely too much for an entrance fee. Especially if you were planning on going to actually shop there you kinda already left a lot just at the entrance. Nonetheless I had fun with my girls and I was really happy we could convince Mali to waste some cash as well and come hang out with us.

Saudade Street One Lois Opoku lisforlois

Saudade. One of my favorite words I've ever heard of. Just like Serendipity. I used to wonder why my super hot husband Neymar used this word so often on his Instagram along with long messages and pictures of people who I assumed to be dear ones of his. So I googled it and kept that word in my heart ever since. Its meaning so hard to translate but beautiful as the sound of it.
This currently one of my fav T-Shirts and I'm really proud to wear it. Not only because it says Saudade but because it was designed by my friends Desi & Nisi in collaboration with Street One during a recent blogger workshop and sort of press preview. I've been practically living in this T-Shirt. According to comments this shirt is highly in demand and I sincerely hope Street One decides to reproduce some more.

Street One. If I think about Street One, I don't exactly think "fashion forward!" or "yeah must go

Lois Opoku mittsommer nokia #lumiasummerglow lisforlois
About a month ago Nokia invited for a celebration of summer with a pop of color. I first thought about coming in a yellow summer dress to match the new Lumia 930, 630 & 635 with Windows Phone 8.1, which come in bright orange, green, yellow or black or white, and live up to summer brights but then decided for this white hippie touch dress I got from Esprit during their beautiful Mittsommar afternoon. Anyway Nokia chose the roof deck of the Nhow to introduce the new phone. It was a really nice chilled early evening with the lovely Nokia team.
Naturally I got to test the new Lumia 630, Lumia 635 or Lumia 930 and play around with the new functions. I practically took over one of the testphones and infiltrated it with a few too many (*cough* read= a lot!) selfies of myself. Can't waste moments of perfect selfie - sorry I mean lufie - light x finding your right angle for a change, right? RIGHT?! Don't act like you don't know what I'm talking about. Scroll a bit up in your camera roll and I know you got at least one set of a minimum 30 same looking selfies, missy ;)
To be honest I didn't really discover all the functions this new phone brings with its launch. I was #busytakingselfies.. #DontMindMeWhileIgoTakeAnotherSelfie #GoodFaceDay oh and the classic #ShamelessSelfie #obsessedWithMyselfMuch..

G-Shock G-sessions BBQ party at Voo Store Berlin lisforlois

I'm going to final G-Sessions Party tonight held by G-Sessions. Searching my computer for the invite my search also gave me these pictures. Don't know why I never published these. Especially because it was a really great evening in the backyard of Voo Store. I even bumped into some long lost friends that made that night super fun. Voo Store was packed and the XXL burgers and sweet potato fries (best thing I tasted this summer) along with the soft ice were beyond. It was one of the warm summer nights with the right crowd of people at the right place at the right time. And inside the G-Shock watches were ticking away counting every second we enjoyed.

Adidas Neo Team blue challenge lisforlois

Here are the pictures of my latest collaboration with Adidas NEO and it's part of the NEO Pants Challenge. Together with Laura from The Limits of Control I represent Berlin Team Blue. Our task was to style a blue trousers from the A/W collection (yes that's the collection we shot in L.A.) and go out to the streets and shoot our style. We ended up at Warschauer Straße and had a great afternoon and fun shooting these pictures. I hope you can see this in the pictures and video as well. I was really happy to work with Laura because she's a really good friend of mine and I was lucky to be put in a team with her. Also we were really lucky with our team color. Being team blue meant I got to pick my favourite trousers I already adored back in L.A.
Keep your fingers crossed for us, because we want to go to the Adidas HQ!!

Twice a year there is this week that revolves solely around fashion. And it's called fashion week. 4 wonderful hectic days filled with nothing but shows, presentations, openings, cocktail receptions, launches and parties all in the name of fashion. This season was yet again pretty crazy for me.
Day 1. Here we go!

Wednesday, July 10, 2013


So how do you dress for a perfume launch, a fashion show and a pool party at once, without bringing along a whole new second outfit to change into? Well this is what I wore to the Diesel Lover Dose Tattoo Launch, the Starbucks Discoveries presents Alice M. Huynh event (read about it here) and the Dandy Diary Fashion Week Pool Party kick off Party.
In the end I didn't go to the Dandy Diary Fashion Week kick off pool party... I could have worn just a normal outfit. Oh well.. At least my bikini top came in handy for mother nature's rain party. I was beaten by the rain and it felt like a taste of Dandy Diary's Pool Party right there in the streets of Berlin.

Okay so when I said "This is the last post from my event filled week just before L.A." in my last post, I had clearly forgotten that the very first Beauty Blogger Cafe took place just a day after the Pull&Bear and Forever 21 Openings. With my new found desire to express my love for all things fancy schmancy beauty wise, the Beauty Blogger Cafe couldn't have been timed any better.

This is the last post from my event filled week right before my L.A. trip. But I also have a surprise for you guys, so keep reading!
Okay so after seeing videos from previous Nelly High Heels Tour parties that are such a huge success especially in Skandinavia plus my missed chance to visit the first German Nelly High Heels Tour, I was all the more excited to visit this time. The Nelly High Heels Tour took place at my favourite club in town: Asphalt. Surrounded by shoes shoes and more shoes every girl and high heel lover was pretty much in heaven.

The Zanox Expert Day was a great opportunity to communicate and get know some experts in the field of advertising and monetarizing all the great work one puts in a blog, as well as talk to representatives of brands like Otto and Douglas. While being spoiled with delicious food at the afterwork party I enjoyed a nice day getting to know new faces.
Again this time the atmosphere was great and I felt free to talk to the experts and learn new things about blogging and widening my horizon. Of course it would be a dream to live from blogging, but there is so much work that needs to be done and a lot of effort and dedication and know-how involved. The Zanox Expert Day served as a plattform for us, the bloggers - the creative end of it all - to win a bit more know-how.

The title sounds a bit strange doesn't it? A fashion show? On the radio?
Not too long ago I traveled to Potsdam with Anh and Yuliya, because we had been invited by Media on Work. Marcel Ostertag (his shows always wow me at fashion week!) was going to present four looks of his latest collection on the Touching People's Hearts radio show as well as give an interview. And we had the chance to listen and see.

On the weekend I went to check out the designer sale. Unfortunately I didn't find anything amongst the masses of pieces and shoes, although the prices were quite alright. I met up with Laura and Eileen and her roomie Toko. We didn't stay long either, instead took so outfit pictures. Here's what I was wearing,
kindly captured by Laura. We took the pictures just under the bridge of the U-Bahn Gleisdreieck. It was a lovely day and probably the last day of "summer".
Judging from the weather today it's definitely "goodbye shorts!"

I think today was the last day of summer. It was a hot day, 22°C. After being tortured over the tracking field for twelve minutes (Damn you Cooper! Damn you Cooper Test!) I enjoyed the day sunbathing on my balcony, sucking up all the natural vitamin D from what were probably the last summer sun rays.
Someone asked me to blog about my summer essentials.
Here is what I think.

Zanox invited me to one of the best events I've been to so far. And guys, you know I've been luckily enough to have been to many. It all started in the morning at the Zanox Headquarters, where we were invited to a day filled with workshops, lovely people, talks and yummy food.
When I first stepped into the blogging world not thinking much of it, I quickly learned this was a huge world with so much to still learn about it. But I felt I was getting the hang of it.
That day, right there and then, listening the talks about SEO and monetising Blogs in the workshops Zanox offered, I realized I know nothing at all.
Zanox organised workshops for us bloggers, as well as a talk with the emerging Designer Damian Hirschberg, who talked about the importance of bloggers for designers from his perspective and gave us the chance to peek behind a photo shoot.
