Last week we introduced you to our new sunglasses collection, including the new Caramel collection! Sunglasses in soft brown tones that comfortably fit your face and have a summer warmth to them. To celebrate the launch of our new collection, we planned a trip to Seville and packed some of our Kapten crew! Together with Christina Bischof (@christinabiluca), Kelly Flint (@kellyflint), Janina Pfau (@janinapfau) and Nina (@fashioncarpet) we explored the city of Seville and soaked up the first sun rays of the year.

Of course, we have pictures and tips for you again and a lot to tell. But just look for yourself and enjoy our unique experiences in Seville! 🍊

The Trip

The trip started at the Hotel Alfonso XIII, one of the most famous and luxurious hotels in Seville. Someone pinch us, please! After all, even today the hotel is an absolute gem and hard to beat in terms of charm and aesthetics. If you have a preference for the flair of Spanish architecture, you will certainly feel more than comfortable here. This was also the case for us and the girls!

In the style of ancient cultures, there was a mosaic workshop on the first day. The design is like putting together a puzzle that you can design yourself. And after just a few hours, the girls had their own work of art in hand. We can really recommend you to try your next DIY project with mosaic – the whole thing will give your furniture and your home a warm, Mediterranean look in just a few steps!

The next day we continued with a cooking class and Spain’s national dish – paella! Together with a chef we were shown step by step how to prepare this versatile rice dish. And the result was simply *chefs’ kisses* delicious. Similar, to risotto, the ingredients are cooked in enough liquid until the water has completely evaporated. And wow, this makes the rice absorb the intense spices and become a blast of flavor. Our mouths are still watering just thinking about it, so we don’t want to deprive you of the recipe – you can find it at the end of the post. 🥘

After the sumptuous meal, we had to go for a walk. We explored the most beautiful spots of Seville, such as the Plaza de España, one of the most famous squares in Seville. With the buildings in Renaissance style, the fountain in the middle and the countless bridges around the square forms a really picturesque backdrop and downright beckons to be photographed! Next we went to the Metropol Parasol also known as the mushrooms of Seville. The construction of wood snakes in the middle of the old town over the roofs of Seville. The modern landmark impresses with its size and has also won several design awards, which is why it can hardly be outdone as an Instagram spot.

The group always had their favorites from the new collection in their luggage. While Janina usually wore the Sydney All Black, Christina could hardly put down the Sofia Transparent Caramel Brown. Nina and Kelly’s favorite accessories included the Zurich All Black and the Florence Transparent Caramel Brown. Get inspired by how the girls combined the new glasses:

Are you now also in the mood for summer, good weather and a trip to Seville? We don’t know about you, but we can’t wait for summer! But until it comes, our new sunglasses will do for now!

Do you remember the wonderful impressions from the Winterhouse last week? Together with Liz & Christin Kaeber, Cita Maass, Lisa Marie Schiffner, Nadine Klein and Katharina Damm we visited a cozy chalet in Arabba, Italy. On the trip, not only pure relaxation awaited the Influencers, but also some exciting experiences.

We started with a hike through the snowy winter landscape of the Dolomites, followed by delicious dinner with fondue and wine. The evening ended with a classic movie night on the sofa. For a change, the next day we had a morning yoga session on the agenda, but also some action! – We invited the group to a unique adventure: A Helicopter flight over the Dolomites with probably one of the best views over the snowy mountain range. But the next few days also had a lot to offer. Whether touring through the wilderness with cute huskies or a well-deserved spa day – this trip had truly everything to offer. After our trip, the demand for the Winterhouse was so huge that we thought of something special for you!
