Weekly Update #2

Review: Since it's holiday season my week has been super relaxed and rather uneventful. I slept a lot, ate way too much and did some little last minute shopping before the shops were closed over the holidays.

Pink Fluffy Coat & Leather Bag

I hope you are all having a great day so far! I slept in today and just had some lovely tea while working on loads of emails. Today is going to be quite chilled. I have been looking for some cozy new knits

Bekapten

Based on the amount of wrist watches I own one could assume I'm always on time. Don't be mislead friends. I never am. That's probably my worst habit along with choosing sweets over proper food.

I LOVE MY COTTON: STRICKPULLI

Happy Wednesday guys! I hope you had a lovely weekend and a great week so far. I used my weekend to relax while watching movies in bed and eating way too many sweets. I also ended up decorating my new bedroom a little bit.

Old Kicks & New Watch

Those of you who know me, will know that on a day to day basis I never wear heels. I always prefer a good pair of sneakers to walk around in the city. So when I stumbled over my real old pair of New Balance sneaker I just couldn't resist to take my long lost babes on a walk.

What I Want To Wear #2

Happy Monday guys! It's been a while since I have posted a WIWTW article. You might remember the first one I posted a few months ago, but ever since then I never got to do one again. Although I must admit I actually do like this way of showcasing my outfit inspiration.

Happy Friday loves! I am so excited for the weekend. You want to know why? Because I'm moving into my new place on Sunday. So today will be spent at home working on some new projects and later I'll be shooting 2 new visuals for the coming week!

Patchwork

I'm not one for wearing heeled shoes a lot. It's rather rare that you see me walking down the street of Berlin in killer heels. But every once in a while even I have to opt for a great pair of heels, especially when it's as beautiful as this one from Topshop.

Cinemagraph

Today's short article is of a different kind. Remember I recently shot some amazing photos with the Apricotberlin team? Well, truth is, Jess & Tiago, the creative duo behind the brand, are not purely photographers. They actually specialize in creating cinema graphs. What's that you ask? Well continue reading...

Navy & Stripes

I never met a striped top I didn't like and this one especially seems to go perfect with my new navy coat by GANT.  Today's look consists of probably my most favorite pieces in my favorite colors.

Monday Blues

Great start to the new week loves! I hope you'll get over the Monday blues rather quickly. Today I'm sharing with you another look that I really like wearing in autumn as well as winter. I feel like now is the time to get all my coats out. This is another coat I'll be wearing on the daily this season.

Autumn Favorites

The perfect camel coat recently landed in my wardrobe and I couldn't be more excited about it. Finding the ideal camel coat has proven to be more tedious than I thought. Until I checked out the new range at s.Oliver.

I lOVE MY COTTON: HERBSTLOOK

I've been super productive this week and got loads of work done. Even though I really look forward to weekend I really like busy days and weeks simply because I get the satisfaction of having accomplished something. Since I mostly work form home, it can get a little bit boring spending all week in your own four walls. So whenever time and my mood allows I like to chill in a cafe for a few hours, drinking coffee, eating one too many slices of cake and of course, work.

LEATHER AND STRIPES

Leather and stripes seem to make the perfect pair when it comes to casual attire. At least for me. I love mixing the two whenever I like to opt for a laid back look that looks effortless but still stylish. When meeting up with Caro to check out my dear friend Jules interior event in collaboration with Urbanara I once again went for such a combination.

GETTING ORGANIZED

I don't know about you but I often feel like there are not enough hours in a day with everything that's on my plate. I always try my best to fit all important duties in the morning and working the least ones off in the early evening. Being organized is very important especially though if you work for yourself.

OH PENNY

Happy Weekend loves! Today I'm sharing my love for comfy shoes with you. On weekends I do enjoy walking around the city, enjoying my coffee fix and of course taking phototgraphs. Naturally I need comfortable shoes that I can walk miles in. Literally. My current favorite go-to flats are my black Penny Loafers by GANT Footwear.

NYFW Favorite: Tommy Hilfiger SS16

Even though I do follow what's going on during crazy Fashion Month, I hardly ever post any catwalk looks here on Minnie Knows. But Tommy Hilfiger SS16 was so amazing I just had to share it with you. It was by far one of my favorite collections, along with Tibi and 3.1 Philip Lim.

Hat Season

Autumn is here you guys! What better way to celebrate the new season (which is on of my faves after summer), than gearing up with some new fedora hats. I love autumn because it's the time of the year when I can wear layers and most importantly fedora hats.

How To Get Blog Traffic Through Instagram

The more followers I get on Instagram (we're now on 22K @minnieknows) the more emails and direct messages I receive on how I gained a lot of followers. Check my latest Tips on it here. But Recently I've been also getting emails on how to use other social media channels effectively and drive traffic from it. So here are three tips that seem to be working for me when it comes to yes, Instagram:

1. Use an appealing teaser in high resolution quality
The teaser image of a blogpost you want to promote is the very first image your followers will see on Instagram so make sure its a great one! Always use hi-res images taken with DSLR (at least that's what works best for). I recommend to always use hi-res on announcing a new blogpost coming online. Otherwise Instagram is a tool for showing your followers your personal style and a glimpse of your daily life. So keep it raw while proving top quality photographs. They will stimulate your followers curiosity and drive them to your blog.

2. Provide your blog URL in your bio
Since it's still not possible to include URLs in a caption, make sure to put your Blog's URL down in your bio. This way you can always change it to the latest article so your readers will be redirected straight to the current article on your blog. It's the only place on Instagram where an active hyperlink can put.Apart from only putting the URL in you bio it's equally important to make followers aware of the fact that it's actually there. So let them know in you photos caption. This way you'll use the link in the most effective ay possible.

3. Write catchy headlines
By catchy I mean witty, fun, personal and interesting. Your readers should want to get know the story behind a teaser image. Again stimulate their curiosity! Tell them a little bit about your story and show them where to find the rest of it, namely on your blog. This combined with a beautiful photo will work wonders.

Follow me on FacebookTwitter and Instagram!

I hope this will help you drive more traffic to you blog! Try it out an let me know if you see any changes. I'd be curious to hear how that works for you. Do you have other tips on how to get more blog traffic through Instagram? Let me know and happy Tuesday!

How To Gain More Followers On Instagram

I've just hit 20,000 Followers on Instagram (@minnieknows) and couldn't be more thankful for the love and support you guys! I've also been receiving emails regarding this topic. Readers have been asking me how to gain more followers on Instagram and actually keep them. So here are my five tips for gaining more followers on Instagram:

1. Be a nice person 
Instagram like any other social media tool is about connecting with others. Your followers are important so be nice and see them as the humans they are, not just numbers. You will only be in contact with them online so make sure you leave a great impression. Be a nice person and engage in comments meaning respond to questions and be thankful for compliments. If people notice you're actually a nice person they'll be more eager to keep following you and seeing what you're up to.

2. Quality over quantity
Only post when you're really satisfied with your photos. It's always better to upload once a day instead of 3 times, as long as you are providing original and authentic content. Make sure your photos work well with the overall feed and your Instagram story. Always edit to make your photos more appealing. That being said, lets quickly talk about editing!

3. Edit and crop your photos
Make sure to edit your photos and cropping them for Instagram before uploading them. Editing doesn't mean overdoing it with lots of filters. Depending on the style of your feed keep your photos either really light or rather shaded. Clean feeds are super popular on Instagram. So if what you're doing is not working, why not thinking about cleaning up your feed. Make photos brighter, intensify saturation and always sharpen before uploading. You'll quickly see great results and will be more satisfied with your feed. Old and new followers will be too and will keep coming back for more.

4. Use popular Hashtags
When uploading your photos make sure to add popular hashtags. When posting an outfit or look you can add the hashtag #fashion or #ootd. Always make sure that your post gets seen quick because the popular hashtags are used by millions of people. Also try to be specific. When uploading a fashion related photo to your feed you could use the hashtag #fashion_de for Germany or if you're a blogger use #fashionblogger_de. This will make it easier to reach users in your area or area closest to it. Furthermore you will reach those interested in what your Instagram story is about.

5. Comment and like other users content
Comment, comment, comment AND like! As much as you want people to follow you, comment and like your content, you need to support others as well. Look for other fashion or beauty enthusiast that you might like. Make sure to engage and comment on their photos. By this you will not only get noticed by them too, but by everyone else seeing that specific profile. Also it's super nice to be supportive. At the end of the day those are the people supporting you too. Sharing is indeed caring!

So far that's what I've been doing to gain my followers and keep them because I really want to share my love for fashion. Do you have any other tips? Stay tuned for more 'How to' articles on the blog! Have a amazing day! Minnie x

House Of Small Wonder

The beauties of Berlin! I can't believe I've never been to this uber chic cafe in the heart of Berlin Mitte. I met up with Caro the other day for a coffee and some brainstorm session. But let me tell you it was way too hot (34 degrees like what?) All we got to do in this heat was shooting this super cute look for you guys with my new tfnc London blouse.

Off Shoulder

Hi everybody! I'm back with a quick update. I spent the last weekend in the countryside with the boy and the in laws. I can't tell you how relaxing those days were. The perfect change of scenery from the hectic life here in Berlin. Life should really be a vacation, no?

Split Food: Green Market

I woke up at 6am for this little food gem: the Green Market. The market is located just minutes from the harbor in Split overlooking the beautiful sea. Its a world of beautiful colors combined with sweet scents and interesting figures strolling in the early hours to catch good deals on a diversity of vegetables, fruits, delicious cheese and honey as well as olive oils.

June Favorites

1. ACCESSORIES 
The first time I wore my beautiful TRIWA sunglasses* was on my holiday in Split. They simply complemented my looks perfectly and I above all are really amazing quality. I'm still wearing them almost everyday especially since Berlin has gotten so sunny lately. My TRIWA babes are called  Leopard Thelma and are available here! They are made of hand cut acetate and stainless steel. Scandinavians really do it best. TRIWA has a great selection of beautiful sunnies (and watches) to choose from, so make sure to check out their website!

Split Sights: Marjan Park

Split really has a lot to offer when it comes to sightseeing. Marjan Forest Park is just one of the gems this beautiful city has to offer. I climbed up to Marjan on a hot day during my trip, which really wasn't the best idea. Still once getting up there, the whole climbing was more than worth it.

Zalon

I am so in love with these photos taken at the Zalando Office some time ago. We shot them back in March when I visited their Offices and I finally got my hands on them to share with you.

Simply follow the steps here and I might be calling you next. Happy Humpday loves!

DE: Ich bin schlichtweg begeistert von diesen tollen schwarz-weiß Aufnahmen. Diese habe ich in Zusammenarbeit mit Zalando für das Projekt Zalon aufgenommen. Wie einige von euch bereits wissen, arbeite ich dort als persönliche Stylistin. Wollt ihr auch von mir gestylt werden? Dann schaut doch mal hier vorbei und folgt ganz einfach den Anweisungen. Vielleicht style ich das nächste Mal ja einen von euch. Ich wünsche euch einen tollen Mittwoch!

Split Food: Konoba Matejuška

Ever since I had my first Risotto, cooked by my best friend’s Mum on a hot summer day in the south of France, I have been obsessed with this dish. Whether it’s Asparagus Risotto, Risotto with spinach or mushrooms, I will always have a risotto if I can. However, never have I ever had black risotto in my entire life. I didn’t even know things like this existed.

Peony Love

Peonies are my absolute favorite flowers! I would decorate my whole room with them if I could. I love buying a bouquet Sundays after having a coffee and some pastry. Ever since I moved to London and spent hours at Columbia Road Flower Market each Sunday, I have been crazy about these flowers.

Black and white

While I'm currently in London enjoining the great weather and amazing times with my family, I thought I should shed some more light one of my favorite outfits I wore in Split. You saw the whole look in this previous article already.  I wore a black and white ensemble that I got to choose from the new collection at New Yorker.

Split Food: Chops-Grill & Mazzgoon

Before even landing in Split, I had a long list of places I wanted to eat at or just hang out. Some were recommendations I got from lovely readers on Instagram and others I found online, while preparing for my trip. So when I finally got to Split I went to the first place right after checking in at the Hotel. One perk of traveling alone is doing whatever you want to, whenever you want to.

Split Postcards

I just can not get over how beautiful Croatia was. I spent 5 days in Split before driving to Trogir and then further up north to Rab. We then spent a few days camping in Lopar, at Paradise Beach. I naturally took loads of photos - this country is simply stunning.

It's in the details

Even though the weather in Berlin doesn't look very promising at the moment I still feel like wearing summer whites. I especially love blouses or tunics because you can style them in many ways. You can go from a more chic look to a very casual one wearing the same blouse.

All Star


I'm back in Berlin and already missing the amazing weather in Croatia. Before I'll start spamming you with my amazing travel photos I wanted to squeeze in a fashion related post. It's about time I guess.
