Meanwhile quite some time passed by since our trip to Istanbul end of December and I still didn’t manage to share any pictures of the trip so here we go. Finally. But well, I took Christmas and New Year as a legit reason to indulge oneself in feeling bored – well, at least for 30 second until I decided to get up and get something done. Didn’t matter what. But I’m getting off the point, I wanted to tell you about Istanbul, right?

If you follow me on Instagram you probably noticed that I spent the last week in Turkey. After a couple of days in Istanbul, we continued our journey in Cappadocia – you know, this place with the absolutely unique landscape and the many, many hot air balloons raising together with the sun every morning. This place has been on my bucket list since I first saw pictures of it. But even now that we’ve been there, I didn’t tick it off because our time there was just way to short, so we are planning to return in spring.

I don’t know how often I’ve been thinking, speaking and even dreaming about the subject of “time” the past weeks. Thinking back to my younger self five years ago and my imaginary wish list at that time when a pair of super expensive Louboutins have been on the very top of that list, I quickly realize how my priorities have changed meanwhile. What I’m missing and what I really wish for is just one thing: Time.

I have to admit, I’m a total summer kid. Really. Really. I like the sun. I like the warmth. I like when the days are so long and the nights so short. Actually there’s only one acceptable reason to love winter for me, and that’s the wintery outfits that can come in all colors to brighten up the greyness of the season.

Usually I’m not a very romantic or even kitschy person. I swear. At least in 11 months of the years, but well, not in that one Christmas month. It’s that time of the year I’m channeling my inner child and easily freak out in the Christmas department of my local grocery store. So this year we ended up with one of those uber kitschy snow-covered Christmas trees with dozens of glittery ornaments and I’m wearing huge red bows in my hair. I has to happen in kind of a trance-like condition. Because right before winter starts I’m usually complaining about all that kitsch coming up, until I go headlong into a next level Christmas mood. Maybe that’s just my kind of Christmas defense. As we all know: Offence is the best defence.

I have always been bored by perfection, by smooth-edged things which are so slick and flawless that they seem to be impalpable – just as if they would slide out of your fingers right away. But still I consider myself as a perfectionist.

It’s Christmas season, meaning gift (wrapping) season. But now, in an age I can easily buy most of the things myself, gifts became even more secondary than they’ve been before. That’s why it means so much to me if a gift has a personal meaning or if it’s obviously wrapped with love. Because what really counts now and what many people are missing these days is not money, but rather time. Therefore time is the most precious gift you can give to and receive from someone, be it in form of spending time together or that you take some of your precious time to wrap someone’s gift beautifully.

Ok guys, first of all let me apologize about the lack of updates over the past weeks. I feel like everything got a bit out of control but I still believed I could handle it all – because well, I have to. In the end I had to admit to myself that it’s not longer possible to continue the life I’m living right now, or I will fall apart inside. So I decided for a time-out in one of the many things I’m working on and well, obviously it hit the blog – my baby which used to fill me with so much joy, happiness and proudness but turned into a burden recently. Phew, this sounds so dramatic while I don’t even want to talk drama – actually quite the contrary as I finally know what I want: Back to the roots, but differently.

There’s only more or less one month left until we can set our beautifully decorated Christmas trees on fire – uhm, the candles, I mean! But for all the Christmas lovers among you who can not wait for THE day, this is still waaaay too long, right?

Red Carpets are always special occasions – but honestly they’re also those kind of occasions I don’t feel very comfortable with. I actually feel like a lost lamb which ended up at a place where it doesn’t really belong to. You know, when you’re standing there – all eyes on you – you suddenly start to question the fit of your dress, if you may have lipstick on your teeth and if you’re face is glowing too much on the pictures. At least there are three things that actually help:
