New York was good to me – in fact, it was really good to me. Only being there 10 days, I was contacted already by quite a few brands for collaborations. Unexpectedly, among them was Nicole Bakti, a brand that sells beautiful dresses, worn by many reality TV stars on US television. Those of you who follow me on Instastories probably have seen how I went to their showroom in NYC and tried on a couple of their amazing dresses. Choosing my favorite was really the hardest decision… Continue Reading
It’s cherry blossom time again – I always love it when it starts getting colourful outside, the days get longer and we all start anticipating warm temperatures, loads of sunshine and simply a chilled summery vibe. But what is also good about cherry blossoms is that they make the perfect background for shooting those light, super comfy rose culottes from Topshop. I bought them in New York from the Sale and they were such a great bargain. I think they are going to be a great essential for this spring/summer.
New York’s style inspired me. While it is more subtle and casual during the day, at night girls from New York know how to dress up big time! The goal is to find the perfect balance between elegant, sophisticated and sexy – which is really not that easy! Going out here in Berlin and also back during the Maastricht days, you do not really care that much about what you wear. Basically, you could go in the same outfit that you wore during the day. But when I was in New York, I noticed that getting ready for the night was a whole process. Continue Reading
Sometimes I forget how much I like it when my hair is straight. It just turns me into a completely different person and it gives the outfits I’m wearing a more edgy vibe I think. But anyway, this post should not be about my hair, but more about this outfit that I’m sharing with you today. If you look at it, it’s very simple – I actually brought so many basic pieces with me to New York because I did not know what to pack – but what makes it special and somehow eye-catching after all are the small details and accessories. Look closer – see those cute ruffles that are sewed all around this denim jacket? Or the lace-up detail of this loose, black shirt, giving it a little sexy twist? I’m sure you noticed the beautiful embroidery of the mules I’m wearing though, just like the pink detail on my bag.
New York, New York – one of the most exciting and busy cities in the world. A place where crazy meets serious; a place where you can be who you want to be… well, at least if you got enough money. New York has been on top of my travel lists for such a long time. Is the city really how it is portrayed in the movies? Fancy jazz bars, high heels and short dresses, busy business men, advertisement overload, bright and colorful lights, buildings so high your neck hurts when looking up, crazy traffic with loads of yellow cabs, plenty of aspiring artists… I could think of so many more stereotypical associations with New York. And you know what? It was just that. New York was just how I expected it to be. With one of my best friends and now local New Yorker Vivien as company, it turned out to be even better than I expected it. Continue Reading
In my last post I told you how stressful the last couple of weeks were for me and how much I pushed myself to my limits – as you can imagine, after the GMAT test my energy level completely dropped to zero. Since I knew that this is going to happen, I booked a flight to my second home, Cairo, where my parents are staying in our summer house. Being here right now is the best thing that could have happened. I literally feel how each and every day is giving me back some energy, thanks to my caring parents, the sun, the amazing food and the peaceful isolation I am enjoying to the fullest. When I’m in my overachiever-I-want-it-all-mode, I barely allow myself a day with doing nothing or sleeping in. I always have the urge to „seize the day“ – a motto I love living for, but sometimes I forget that a day of staying in bed with series or movies might not always be a wasted day. We need those careless days from time to time, yes, to restore energy and turn the overheated head off for a while. Continue Reading
