Wednesday quote

photo has been taken on Route 1, California back in 2009
I've chose this quote today, because time has been passing by super fast these days for me.
The amazing colorful autumn days are over and weather has changed into a cold and dusty atmosphere,
not yet winter wonderland.
I try to make each moment special and useful, but I kinda see myself once in a while just laying in bed covered in blankets and watching TV, cause its just so relaxing. Some hot tea and warm lights make my day perfect then. 
Thoughts coming up in my mind and I try to reflect some projects I'm working on.
Even if it seems to be waisting time, I gain more energie and allow myself to just enjoy the pre- christmastime. 
Time is passing by way to fast sometimes and it totally makes me nervous thinking about the things I could have done. 
While writing about it, energie and motivation comes back and I'm planning the rest of the week.
Tomorrow I'll be shooting a little TV spot again for this local channel. This time not about haircuts and stylings, its about what to wear when you're having a day out in the snow and go for a sleigh ride. 
I think it's gonna be a fun day interviewing the german olympia winner in skeleton.
Friday is also planned quiet good. My day will start by being in school working on my fashion collection for women over 50. Its really tough if you have just 3 colors to work with, but also a really amazing challenge. 
Anyhow, I'll catch up with my friends later to get ready for the Florence and the Machine concert at night!!
Cant wait to see her live again. The tickets have been waiting here for such a long time now... :)

Amsterdam Getaway

About exactly a year ago, I took the train up to visit my good friend, Aranka, near Amsterdam.
We have met in 2008 while we were working together at the Coca-Cola Company. After graduation from school I wanted to work for about 3month somewhere, where I actually earn some good money and get to know some big business. 
The close Coca- Cola Company seemed to be a great opportunity to have a great schedule and a closer look into a business which is well known everywhere in ther world. After about 2weeks working there, Aranka came in and was told to work with me over summer. I was really happy, cause it got kinda boring doing everything on my own, almost not talking to anybody. She and I got friends right away and were working together as a team like nothing.
After our time was over as some Cokegirls, we couldn't see eachother for over a year, cause I left the country for my very new adventure of being an AuPair. Since I'm back, we both talk once in a while over all sorts of social medias and still talk like always. Even if we don't see eachother that often because of the distance, we try to connect as often as possible. I guess this is called a "real friendship", which you just dont find that often out there. 
Anyways, I found these few pictures of our visit for half a day in the city of Amsterdam, Netherlands. Enjoy.

carnival in cologne

Oh what a fun weekend. I just came home from a really fun and creative weekend at my friends house in cologne. Every years there is a huge party all over the city to celebrate "carnival" or as you might know it as "mardi gras". Its a fun spectacle where we all dress up and go as something or somebody different. Usually the whole group interpretes the same topic just as this year, where we all went as "dia de los muertos- dolls".
To be honest, we didnt plan it that much this year, cause we were all super busy and didnt have that much money to spend for just a day. It turned out to be a really fun idea and the people around had a fun time looking at us as nice girls first, then turning around and kinda shock them by looking so different.
Well, the real carnival comes up next year and it'll go for about 5 days dressed up as whatever you feel like and having fun with tons of people listening to local music. 
On one of these pictures you might questioning yourself, who is that guy in the middle... well, thats our great friend, who came to visit us for a couple of days. Amazing surprise for us, cause we not get the chance to see him that often. Thanks for that great time guys

Wednesday quote

Time for my weeks quote.
My alarm went at around 4am this morning to remind me to follow the U.S. election on television. 
Half asleep when the news popped up. Relieved and super tired, I fell back to sleep again and was dreaming about the time I actually was part of the States. Exactly 4 years ago I could follow the election of the (now!) second time winning president and totally got caught by the atmosphere. I could see people taking sides between the 2 fronts by showing big posters in their windows, while I was taking my daily walk with the babies. Having plenty of stickers on their cars or wearing Tshirts with statements. Being part of a college program with people all over the world talking about the states, the language, traditions, food, culture and the history, made me feel more curious about the country.
This important year for myself and then this changing election was a great combination, because everything seems to be so new to me. 
Thinking about that amazing time - which I do at least once a day!- I couldnt help myself looking at all the pictures and papers I've made and collected during this year. 
Tears, Happiness, Laugh. I've passed all these stages all at once. This always happens when I look at the pictures and the great time we've had. 

Well, here is my wednesquote for you. Shakespeare. Photo was taken on Route1 back in 2009.

3. November 2012


I've been having lots of fun this last week. I was having a great schedule including lingerie cuttings, Illustrator fall collection 2013 and a power point presentation about the Inkas and their fashion. That kept me busy this week and I actually didnt have any time to do an outfit photos at all. Sorry for that my friends! 
Nevertheless I could do some wonderful little projects for my soul. Here is a little sneak peek of my latest jewelry project. This amazing venture Im working on for the Illustrator workshop will include some handmade leather jewelry and some leather accessories... Oh btw. the quality is not that good this time, cause I was playing with my little digital cam this time.
Thanks for the lovely comments and emails these weeks!
