As some of you might’ve seen on my instagram, I was in New York last summer. Due to university and exams I wasn’t able to publish this post earlier. While planning a trip to New York the most important thing is deciding what you actually want to see during your stay there. Knowing how many places and possibilities are in this big big city, I know the choice is hard to make.

Depending on the lenght of your stay you’ll have to decide what you actually want to see. I know this part can be the most frustrating as you want to see as many places as possible. My tip: Grab a map, mark all the places you want to go and group them geographically day by day. You’ll save up a lot of time moving from one place to another because you don’t have to go from one end of city to the other end.
What to see when in New York? My top three places within the city:
1 Top of the Rock: I might have a thing from seeing places and cities from above. However, the feeling of being on the 70st floor, looking at a city which has no real ending is a mesmerizing moment. I’m not kidding when I say that I spent 4 hours up there. I heard people saying that queues are longer at the Empire State building. Also, the the Empire State itself looks better on the pictures. I was there on a weekday at 2pm and there was basically nobody, I was at the top within two minutes after entering Rockfeller Center. It’s the best 35$ I spent in New York and I would go back there any time, however, this time I would choose the sunset and night view which must be breathtaking too.
2 Central Park: Once you enter Central Park you’ll be overwhelmed by realizing how big this park actually is. People are doing yoga, playing American football, practicing for marathons or riding their bikes. It’s a quiet place yet full of life. In case you’re trying to escape the hectic city, this is the place to be. You’ll end up seeing the famous Bow bridge, Belvedere castle or Bethesda terrace (Gossip girl marriage, anyone?). It’s the perfect place to feel the nature, have a picnic and watch the squirrels or birds. Street artists are everywhere. During summer, there’s many concerts of various local bands and artists.

A couple of months ago I had the honour to work with Bonprix on a very exciting project. Assuming that most of you know Miss contests, this is exactly the topic I’m going to talk about today. However, as a difference to the rest, this contest isn’t only about beauty. As some of you might know Miss Earth has the message „beauties for a cause“.
Consequentely it’s all about nature and standing for environment by realizing projects in order to make a change in environmental protection or for a good humanitarian cause. It’s the social aspect which is crucial. Bonprix on the other side is part of the project. As a retailer which produces clothing out of PET-bottles (yes, it’s true!) and it’s involvement in several projects in Africa regarding the sustainable production of cotton, it’s the perfect match for a partnership.

Another kind of outfit and probably my interpretation of a possible new year’s eve outfit: it’s the little things which make an outfit special.
We’re talking about watches, again. Yes I know, I might be a freak when it comes to watches, however, I believe it’s the little things which make an outfit special (especially when it comes to casual outfits). There’s a hundred of different models avalaible and you can choose whatever you want to wear in everyday life, you can even personalize it by choosing different patterns, prints and colours. My outfit above might not be casual, though it’s only special because of the details: A head-chain, bracelet, necklace and a watch. And this little black watch from Skagen with rosegold details, as well as the wonderful gold bracelet, is just too perfect not to be worn, right? Continue Reading
Sometimes it’s just about the moving itself, no matter where – it’s the process itself which matters. A movement, somehow – you know, there’s many ways of different movements apart from the physical one (Hence the blurred images). ‚Cause without motion, how would we find our place in this wide world? _______________
Hey, there! I’m back. At least for the next month or so, at least for the period of time until exams start and I get to be that big nerve-wracking elephant who’s procrastinating by cooking food. Yes, food = love, ever since I moved out of home and have to cook every day. It’s my new love which is keeping me from studying in like 90% of cases. Ups.
I’m giving a sign of life by basically publishing two outfits in one post which is a novelty on neverdreamedaboutthis I guess, both featuring one thing I fell in love with: My new grey Fossil watch I got the other day. The simple colour palette of a silver strap, white dial and rose gold details is perfect for any outfit you got. Continue Reading
I see where this blogging (aka my interests) is going.. It’s been mostly about traveling and that won’t change so soon – I guess, overthinking the blog-strategy from a fashion into travel one would be a good thing to consider, right?
Mezze, blue sky and crystal clear sea, 27 degrees weather in October, white little houses which made me think of Santorini or Mykonos (never been there though hah), the atmosphere,.. I could go on like that for hours really. I had the chance to travel to Bodrum in Turkey last week thanks to Turkey Toursim (Türkei Tourismus), in order to discover the city with a some other blogger girls. I came there without any expectations (other than all people in my surrounding who were everything but relaxed about my trip there.. no one relaxed, ever) and man, was I surprised.
3 things I loved most about the Bodrum peninsula
1. The food: Thinking back at those days I feel like the only thing we were doing was eating, eating,.. Coming there as a complete stranger I didn’t even know the little different plates called mezze that were served before every meal – and believe me, you were full even before the main dish came, plates full of different veggies. I must say, I was totally surprised to see Turkish food to be so much about vegetables and their preparation, although it makes sense if you think about it. Oh and don’t get me talking about Turkish coffee, tea or Raki (Turkish schnaps).. this was love at “first try”. Also, I had the best ice cream ever at Bitez Dondürm which is an absolute must try if there! Also, the Cimentepe Restaurant in Yalikavak is to die for, the view at night is priceless. However, good foods are a standard in Turkey, so even if you choose little local restaurants you’ll get the best experience for low money. And for a romantic dinner I’d recommend choosing a place at the promenade of Gümüslük with an incredible view on the sea.
Funny fact: We were at a market and different shops and I didn’t even know half of the vegetables, spices or fruits that were sold there – so crazy! The diversity of different food is unbelievable and so worth seeing.
