RECOMMENDATION: OLYMPUS PHOTOGRAPHY PLAYGROUND VIENNA

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Before getting on the plane yesterday, I couldn't insist on paying a visit to the Olympus Photography Playground in Vienna. For all the ones among you, who have a big questionmark hanging over this term, the concept is quite simple to explain: You're allowed to lend a camera to take some photos while walking through all the different light installations and all the other rooms with "a bagful of goodies-feeling" until you (a) run out of breath (b) your memory card is full or (c) until you get a massive appetite for burgers ...

OUTFIT: BOYFRIEND JEANS & GRID PATTERN

blog001

While wishing for a scoop of poppy seed ice cream (yes, ice cream in winter’s delicious!) and preparing my last post from Vienna for this year, I warm the cockles of my heart with the thought of getting on a plane again. I am troubled with wanderlust for some time, but finally my hometown and family will have got me for christmas before I am heading for beautiful Berlin...

BOY CRUSH: RUBEN JACOB FEES #1

try004

Intro – I grew up in Freiburg, Germany but I am living in Berlin for one year now. I soon realized that photography is not only a big hobby but a thing, I can spend my whole days with, so I started a 3 year apprenticeship as a photographer to learn all the skills besides the creative part of this business. At first I was really into reproduction of nature but soon I realized that capturing a person in portrait is something totally different and unique at the same time...

OUTFIT: THE MARBLE LEATHER JACKET

002

The recipe for a successful saturday? Pretty easy! All you need is one of your best friends, a cosy little café, yummy food and a pinch of dreamy atmosphere, et voilà - that's it. I really can't decide whether I am happy or sad of my last day at INDIE and Material Girl magazine yesterday, but I already tend towards melancholy nostalgia after one day...

INSPIRATION: HOMESTORY

Oh here you are again, you very special feeling of home. Suddenly, I accepted the fact, I am not only staying here for a while, but living this city. My room is stuffed with my little bit of junk full of memories. And somehow it's amazing, how a room always spreads its own charm, in spite of the same furniture you move in with, all the time...

OUTFIT: WINDY FISHBONE BRAID

blog004

In fact, everybody knows that the season for wearing leather jackets outside is slowly over, but if you can manage to eat ice cream in winter, you're also able to wish for some warm thoughts. It's the thought that counts! But hey, at least I am wearing a pseudo-scarf, right? Being prepared for the windy streets of Vienna needs a bit more than some childlike head-voice...

These tiny and likeable habits which shape your personality and turn yourself exactely into this very special person you are.

OUTFIT: ALEXANDER WANG X H&M

blog001

The hype around the upcoming Alexander Wang X H&M collection seems to be bigger than ever five days before the official launch of sales. Okay, admittedly those of you who have a tendency towards neoprene material and clean cuts in black and white, will denfinitely not be disappointed! Minimalism, here we go...

OUTFIT: COSY COOKIE CIRCUMSTANCES

blog008

Feel-good factor, ahoi! Due to changing the clocks, I have a sense that time isn't doing its best for me, where' s my extra hour per day, grml? I usually can't endure darkness but this time it seems to be different in a certain way. Going by tram and observing strangers suddenly makes a lot more fun, the brighter the lights zooming past me. Current most favorite song in endless playback and thoughts paused for a while ...
