Smiles

Good morning loves! It’s saturday and finally weekend – the perfect day to sleep in and start that spa routine. Sadly, I fell out of bed again at 8 straight. Seeing the positive side, I’ve been pretty productive already, starting my paper for my studies and reading myself further into the subject. My lazy days are usually Sundays, which will be same this weekend. Today is packed with a meeting at noon and over lunch (exciting news to share soon, hopefully!), finishing up my project, working on some photography, and maybe going out tonight. Though honestly, I don’t mind a quiet weekend this time, so I might stay in tonight with a hot cup of tea and further working on some of my personal projects. I started a to-do list for those projects yesterday and let me tell you – it keeps growing by the hour. I have so many things planned for the future and it really takes some time-management skills to get personal, private projects, studies, full-time job and friends & family under one umbrella. But hey, keeping up the positive mood is the first step to everything. With that, I wish you a great start into the weekend – remember to smile. xo

Goodbye 2014; Welcome 2015

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
