I’d be lying if I told you I have completely arrived. The truth is, my thoughts and part of my heart are still in Cape Town, only my body is grinding on in Berlin. I had this moment, coming back from Cape Town, still in summer mode, flying over Berlin…. and seeing that the whole city was draped in white. Even though I had heard before that it was snowing in Berlin it just seemed to distant to really sink in. And then, seemingly from one moment to the next, I found myself out of the sun and in the middle of a snowed-in city.
Nothing much happened this week, apart from the fact that I’m trying to re-engage with daily life. I’m exercising regularly at the moment, and have picked up my normal writing and posting rhythm as well. That said, I will keep the posting frequency slightly reduced to 4-5 posts over the course of the next two weeks – but let me tell you, I have some beautiful things for you in the making, among them a very emotional text and my Cape Town review.
It’s Fashion Week, Baby!
The whole thing will kick off in Berlin on Tuesday, which is the main reason why I will be a little less active on the blog that week. I’ll make up for it with plenty of content on Instagram и Stories . I’ll basically take you with me, and will offer you a glimpse behind the scenes with my favorite designers. The main challenge for me will be to dress up in style and make sure that I’m warm enough. Let’s see what I can put together. What I’m looking forward to most is meeting so many of my friends again. It’s going to be a real highlight, the whole thing!
Snap back to reality,
(Oh there goes gravity)
I’ve rarely been so excited about the start of a new project as with my newest baby: I started a podcast!
Lisa of Blogger Bazaar and myself are planning a weekly podcast in which we’ll chat about every-day issues, and everything that’s been on our mind that week. We’ll start for real next week, but our pilot is already recorded! We didn’t edit anything, and have also not agreed on a name yet, but all that is going to come with time. This was one of my big goals for 2017, and I’m so incredibly happy that we actually pulled ourselves together and just did it – and so fast. Sure, the whole thing is far from perfect right now, but good things take practice, and if there’s one thing I learned over the years it’s this: just start, the rest will follow.
So, dear readers, I’m happy to share episode one of our new podcast with you. Check it out, and let me know how you liked it. I’m SO curious to hear your feedback!!
Can we take a moment and talk about the fact that I discovered my first grey hair?
I’m getting old.
I’m not joking, either. The other day I was pondering the trivial question what I’m going to do next with my hair… and then I saw it. It’s grey, and it grows on my head. Ok, Masha, focus: what am I going to do next with my hair? Should I let it grow out and rock my natural hair color for the first time in 15 years, or should I keep bleaching? Or maybe I leave the ends bleached and leave the new growth natural? I don’t have the answer yet.
Türkisch für Anfänger (‘Turkish for Beginners’ – a German cult show)
I know, I know, this one’s been around for quite a while, but I only just discovered it on Netflix, and it’s awesome :DD
