The Last Days ...


how did you spent your year? What would do do differently? If you could, what would you change?
2016 was a year so different from any year i have experienced in my short Life.

You could say that that is the case with any year we go through and i guess you are right but it still is the way i feel about it. 
One year ago i decided to pack my things and move to the Island of Bali because i needed a break from the european system and the overall mood of this continent. 

I needed a change. 
I had to refocus and find out (and this is not meant in any esoteric way) who i really am. And you know what? I still don't know! 

And there is absolutely nothing wrong with that! What i do know is that i learned a lot about my self and how i used to handle situations and how i handle them now.
I learn to see that there is ALWAYS another way and to not freak out about small things (I used to be really good at that).




And even if i still somehow enjoy my dramas i came to know to discern which ones are necessary and which ones are not (yes drama sometimes is necessary in my life).
Asia teaches you to "go with the flow" to take things as they come and to let go of the control-freakishness that western culture teaches us. This will get done with or without you working yourself up about it.
Thats why my favorite word in Bahasa Indonesia is "Sabar" which means "Chill down" or "Patients" 
 
So beginning of October i flew back to Austria because this would have been my return flight so i took it to clear things with my apartment. I planned out to stay maximum two months but well... yeah at the moment i am chillin in my friends apartment in vienna with a towel wrapped around my hair - so yes i am still here! But only few more days and i hop onto a plane and im gone again.
Im listening to a 90s playlist and thinking about all the great blessings this year has provided for me. In many aspects this year sucked for a lot of people - i for one have a lot of love for the people around me in Vienna and in Bali. Without them things would be very very hard for me and i am grateful for all of them!


With my business picking up and exciting new things coming once i get back to the island of the gods i can only be in awe of how things developed so miraculously and smooth.



So i guess what i want to say with this post is to think about the positive and the intimate moments you had this year with your friends - friends are the most important thing in your life because they are here to catch you when no one else does.

The "Problem" with being me.

When you grow up you go through different phases or times in your life.
These manifest themselves in the way you dress, the music you listen to, the political views you get or set as a standard for yourself.
At some point i got to an age where i thought "okay i have to be grown up now"
And that involved bundling up my past and letting it be - even looking at what i thought was right back then or belittling the essences of my former lifestyle (music, politics, etc).
The years i have spent living in Vienna where just everything - literally filled with pretty much every situation one can imagine.

I got empowered.
I was dragged down. I gained many new friends.
I lost many old friends. appreciation. rejection.
Love.
Pain.
things that we as overall would call LIFE.

In all of this my biggest problem was to find a group i belong to or to have friends who are truly my friends - not seeing that the friends i had the longest already where all i needed. Very slowly and probably only over the last thre…

Hetzendorf BA Show 2013

Kind of a hassle was made about the Hetzendorf fashionschool BA Show yesterday.
So my expectations were set high.
were they met? - uhm... well partly. All in all the show was nice and well prepared but there was an overall look the every collection.
Very scandinavian - wide cuts - big "vibskovy" jackets and coats and such.  Also the current trend of 90s jackets and pants was   seen throughout the collections.
Hardly any cuts that caught my eye. But again - the overall look was okay. Just nothing really new or neverdonebefore designers. no key looks.
Some hat designer showcased 4 looks but only 2 hats? If they have one year to come up with 4 looks minimum i dont know why unfinished pieces are even allowed over runway? #thingsidontget

Beautiful Helena Severin @ Wienermodels in Jana Wieland

Some Shoe designer showcases great shoes in the dark with only the models mobile-phone shining on the feet - or directly at the face of the model - BOO!
(The shoes were shown on the back screen and looked…

This artist doesn't need an explaination. I think the pictures speak/yell loudly for their selves.
