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:

One week passed by since we entered the plane to Venice for the second time this year – and basically ever – and I could not have been happier about it because last time was way too short so I already told myself I will be back real soon to explore even more of this floating city and get lost in the maze to escape the masses of tourists. But it should not only be the city of Venice itself leaving me in fascination and awe, but also the entire program during the coming days spent to celebrate the new Seamaster Aqua Terra, a new model of Swiss luxury watch brand OMEGA.

Can you guess what I love so much about traveling? And I’m not talking about the fact that one who travels isn’t working (or at least most of the people). I’m neither talking about all the adventures, discovering foreign places, unknown food and getting to know new people. I mean these are all reasons – good reasons for sure! – but there’s another one!

I’m one of these very rare examples of an actual morning person. One reason might be, that I prefer to have important things done as early as possible to reduce pressure during the day (such an idol, right?) another reason might be that I just LOVE breakfast. Well, basically both reasons relate much as you definitely need a balanced, healthy and delicious breakfast to have enough power for the mass of work! But, despite the fact that I’m a morning person, I’m not really keen to spend a lot of time in the kitchen right after getting up. Therefore I’m a huge fan of overnight recipes which I can take out the fridge in the morning without stress and enjoy with pleasure. And even without guilty feelings: no calorie bombs, please!

Hello again, my loves. I know, I’m quite delayed as two weeks passed by in the meantime, but we’re finally going to start with the outfits from Paris and this one here is one you guys seemed to love when I shared it on Instagram. Unfortunately the delay is because of the deadline of two big projects for my studies which are coming closer and my days still have only 24 hours – and I wouldn’t mind to be able to sleep six of them. ;)
