Torture tour in Amsterdam

0 Permalink

Happy Monday everyone! It’s official – vacation is sadly over already! Quite honestly though, I was looking forward to getting back to the office again. Now that I’m back, I know I could use vacation again soon haha. And here it goes: I’ve booked an amazing vacation for March with my bestie – so, so excited! I’ll be telling you all about it soon!

I still have quite a few pictures left to share with you from my weekend trip to Amsterdam – damn, there was just so much to see! I still haven’t seen all of it, so I decided I will have to go again. This time though, I want to go in summer and discover Amsterdam with a bike.

On Sunday of our weekend trip we decided to go to several museums: one of them being the famous Museum of Torture. I really thought there would be nothing in there that could surprise me – but damn, I’m so glad I didn’t live back then. The torture methods they used were insane – the pictures already gave me major goosebumps. However, it’s definetely something to see when you’re in Amsterdam and even teaches you great stuff about the history (mostly) in Europe.

I just had an amazing salade (with avocado and pear) for dinner and will most likely jump onto the couch quite soon. I also want to start a new book these days – I’ve gotten quite a few for my birthday and on Christmas! Enjoy your evening, xo.

Goodbye 2014; Welcome 2015

0 Permalink

Happy New Year everyone! It’s amazing how fast time passes – 2014 is officially over and 2015 has started. I love the saying ‘you’ve got an empty book of 365 pages ahead of you (well, 364 now) and it’s in your hands to write the story.’ If you think about it, it really is us – we are the ones writing our own books, creating paths we want to follow and living the life we want to. At least, that is what I try on a daily basis.

If I look back to the beginning of 2014, 12 months ago, it seems that the year has ended too fast. On the other hand, so much has happened and I have enjoyed almost all of it. Yes, there have been little ups and downs but really, it’s been a great year. I have moved from Hamburg to Zurich, went from an internship position to a full-time job, started StylePhantom, met some amazing people, people that I will surely keep in my heart forever, have travelled and seen different places. 2014 has been a good year for me and I am keen on making 2015 an even more prosperous, an even more exciting, and more fulfilling year than 2014 has been.

I have so many little plans for this upcoming year, so many larger, great ones too. I want to travel, I have picked out places already, I have personal projects, I have plans for changing my apartment a little and I am so excited to making all these things happen – to sharing them.

Then, of course, there is so much I do not know. I don’t know what exactly will happen in 2015, I don’t know who I’ll be meeting next, what other projects I’ll be starting and what projects I’ll be finishing. I have no clue for so many things and the great thing is, I am so happy to be in the unknown sometimes. I love waking up and planning ahead of time and then having to throw over all my plans for something else. I love discovering each day by the day, each hour by the hour!

I am absolutely looking forward to this year and I surely will be writing my own little book – excited to fill in the next 364 days. And, obviously – wishing you the most prosperous year with the most breath-taking moments. xo
