This Was 2013

January 1, 2014 • Inspiration

2013 was an incredibly good chapter in my book.

it took me to places i loved and places i’d never been. it showed me lots of love from friends, family and my handsome husband. it treated me to amazing collaborations with people, companies and brands i admire. i consumed liters and liters and liters of great coffee and had some of the best breakfasts of my life. i am very, very thankful for everything i experienced and have yet to discover and am so grateful to the people who make all of it possible – you know who you are out there. they enabled me to explore and analyse my personal style, my career, and my life in general. i feel like i am in such a good place – i can’t wait to see what the future holds in store.

last but not least, i am very thankful for you – dear reader. it is amazing to me that you keep coming back here to hear what i have to say and see what i want to show you. i hope this little blog can continue to have a place in your heart – or at least your rss feed – and i will work very hard to make this an ever more inspiring place for years to come.

the pictures above are a small sample of my favorite instagram memories of 2013. i got hitched, i spent my first full year living in geneva, i collaborated with cosmetics boutique parfuma and fell in love with la mer products, i had great coffee all over the world, i have the most awesomest fairy godmothers at i love mr mittens and converse, i created my own collection for diamanti per tutti, i stayed at amazing hotels, and i started a breakfast club with vipp. many more cool things happened, and many more stuff is still to happen – so stay tuned.

  • What a great ride it has been for you, indeed!

    I’m really happy that you share all these happy moments with your readers.
