Take a deep breathe, please.
Honestly: I can barely believe that I made it through this week in one piece. It all started exactly one week ago: Stockholm, Paris, Berlin, Iceland. Every day was crammed with meetings, shootings, events. I was on the road non-stop. Sleep? Nope. Food? Forget it.
Instead I went to bed late, got up early and performed every waking minute.
But yeah, I am – incredibly – in Iceland right now, and it is just so amazing here. Somehow it feels time runs slower on this Iceland. Not to throw around empty phrases here, but I actually mean it, and I’m seriously asking myself if there may be something to it for real. Times is supposed to be relative, isn’t it? Either way, that’s how it feels, and I guess it explains why everyone is so relaxed here. It’s infectious, too.
Being here now is perfect after this crazy week I had, coming down and decelerating is just what I needed. Let’s face it: in Berlin the old hustle and bustle will never stop. Glad to be out for a few days, and super privileged to be able to explore this marvelous country. Can’t wait to show you the first round of shopping booty. I have the feeling the post will be among the most beautiful ever. I have fallen head over heels for Iceland and will start sharing with you soon!
This week was so busy that I barely had any time to post anything on the blog. But fear not, that’s about to change, starting tomorrow! I have shot so many nice pics for you guys, now’s the time to show you.
I’ll also have a bunch of Fashion Week posts for you, and, as I said, my first impressions from Iceland. It’s going to be AWESOME!
A short while ago I saw ‘The One’, the new show at Friedrichstadtpalast, and I highly recommend it. It’s sort of about the first drug trip of a young dude wearing a kilt. Very good show. Typically, I was most interested in the flurry of extravagant costumes, all designed by Mister Haute Couture Jean Paul Gaultier. The whole thing’s a real highlight, if you’re in Berlin check it out, it’s the perfect thing to do on a rainy autumn day.

Maybe not the best idea in the world to read a novel about a plane crash given that I was flying so much, but whatcha gonna do, it’s a great, suspenseful read. I highly recommend it to anyone who likes a good thriller.
Did you know that fashion industry is the second dirtiest right after the oil industry? Few other industries cause such environmental pollution. This article sums it up very comprehensively.
To be honest with you, I was of course aware of the fact that fast fashion creates major pollution, but I was not aware of the scope of the disaster, and it really upsets me. I am, in fact, increasingly questioning some of my decisions. I’m in a bit of a dilemma. If I wasn’t a blogger my consumption habits would probably be radically different. I am thinking a lot about what I actually want to stand for, and what I would like to communicate. On the one hand I don’t want to show you only designer stuff and leave some room for cheaper alternatives as well, but on the other hand labels like Zara and H&M are becoming less and less tenable. As I say, a dilemma.
Check out the article and tell me what you think about it, I’d be super curious to hear your thoughts.
