25. Weekly Update

.Little Bad Girl Shirt | Sommer Outfit

shirt: Mango
skirt: Zara
shoes: Keds
sunnies: Karen Walker

A seven hour shooting for Veuve Clicquot, participating in a discussion panel with young designers, a personal chat with a poetry slammer, all on top of the regular every-day madness of life – this week was never going to be boring.
 
Some of you may have wondered why I only published one post this week. The answer is simply: I just did not have the time to do more. While I started writing a number of texts, I was not satisfied enough with either of them, and some thoughts seem to be somehow stuck inside me at the moment. The only text that passed my internal quality control was the one I posted about getting old. I realize more and more that I can’t keep digging up personal posts and publishing them, always new and on schedule. On the other hand, I am also not satisfied with posting three or four pics with two lines of text. So I guess I’m looking for the right balance again.
 
That said, I will have a bunch of new fashion tips for you next week, plus the coolest shirts, and – hopefully – another personal post. In fact, I already know what it’ll be about ;)

Read:
Vogue published a great article about a string of ‘fashion predictions’ which read more like logical end-points to familiar tendencies. You read the text and it resonates, you think ‘Yes! Makes perfect sense!’. All in all a good article about the fashion of the near future.

Laughed:
I found a pretty funny Instagram account: NotesofBerlin.
I feel this account paints a pretty accurate picture of our capital, the charm and interaction of Berliners with each other, somehow between toughness and love.

Podcast Matchalatte | Masha Sedgwick & Lisa Banholzer (Blogger Bazaar)

Matchalatte:
The newest episode of Matchalatte is pretty laid back. I talk about my past, show a vulnerable side by telling you some examples of hurtful experiences during the years of blogging. I also share how I learned to stay true to myself. And there’s more. Lisa and I gossip about some celebrities, devise a theory and answer a couple of great questions from listeners. All in all it’s a pretty emotional episode.

Heard (Read):
Not long ago I finished the ‘Lightbringer’ series by Brent Weeks, and I was so sad about having come to the end of this 5 book saga that I decided to continue straight with the Night Angel Trilogy. I just wanted to stay immersed in that world.
 
I have a huge thing for fantasy novels right now. Fantasy and everything else that takes me to a different place with an altered reality, really. I guess I am now in Fantasy phase, after having come out of a prolonged sci-fi phase before. If there’s magic, I’m in. Thing is, I only just started but I’m already through with the Night Angel Trilogy. I felt the plot lagged a bit in the middle, but the story has really picked up speed again in part three, and the finale is truly breathless and leaves nothing to be desired. I often feel quite underwhelmed by the endings of books, but not with this one, this one was perfect. It’s somehow comforting to see a story wrapped up in style. Still, I need more.
 
I guess I’ll go for at least one more phantasy cycle and may then switch to historical novels – which will probably be my next literary phase.

the experiment:
When Grazia asked me whether I’d be up for an experiment, I didn’t hesitate to jump in. The premise sounded too good to pass on it: Going offline for 48 hours. Offline – for reals.
 
It must be more than 10 years that I have been offline for that long, and to be honest I barely remember my life prior to social media, it is such an integral part of me. On the one hand I am really looking forward to the experiment and am very excited about it, on the other hand I am also a little scared. No Google maps, no music, no e-mails. So often do I think about how our permanent access to the net changes us, but hardly ever has the thought to go offline myself crossed my mind. 48 hours may not be that much, but I am really looking forward to the experience.
 
The story of the experiment will be published in an upcoming issue of Grazia in about tow or three weeks, an I will publish it here on my blog shortly thereafter. I am super curious and very excited about it!

  1. I’m very curious about the experiment. In the past I did the same thing on holidays… maybe for 1 week or 2. But somehow I stopped this and now I’m caught in the Internet, Social Media… you know what I mean :)

    Ich freu mich auf den Bericht in der Grazia oder hier… mal gucken :)

    Lg, Mny von http://www.braids.life

    1. Es sind ja glücklicherweise zwei unterschiedliche Berichte :)
      Das eine ist ein Interview und das andere mein persönlicher Bericht, aber in jedem Fall lest ihr ihn zuerst in der Granzia

  2. If you want to mix your fantasy phase with your history phase, I’d reccomend The Natural History of Dragons – it is a sort of Victorian style novel with dragons. Personally, I detest period drama with burning passion, but this one somehow managed to capture me. It has such a unique take on this weird fantasy/history mash-up, definitely worth at least trying!
