Quote of the week

"The best way out is always through."

- Robert Frost


Today I would like to give a huge birthday shout-out to one of my best buddies and my business-partner-in-crime: the one and only Fredrik Andersson! In case you are wondering why I post this super goofy and insanely ridiculous group shot of one of our last photo shoots (we attempted a cool hipster hip-hop-kinda-group-shot where you have to look extremely serious in order to appear extremely cool - but I failed big time ;-), but this photo just says it all.

 

Life can be tough sometimes, we all have our struggles, turning on the news doesn't make it better, there is so much suffering and negativity in this world. The more important it is to keep a positive attitude, and taking life sometimes not too serious. Freddy is one of those gems who always have a positive attitude, who  make you smile, who encourages and empowers you, who is always authentic and real. He's one of those people who can laugh about himself the hardest, and with whom you can share aching belly laughs, and be total goofballs. Sometimes I think this is crucial to stand all this above and to weather the storms.

 

I am beyond grateful to have Freddy as my dear friend. My family also loves him to pieces. With him work never feels like work. He's one of those people who just make your day a little brighter simply by being in it. Happy happy Birthday!!!! May blessings pour down really really hard on you today! :-)

Last week we did a so-called „After-Wedding-Shoot" with JUVELAN's „real bride" Melanie Ortner-Stassen and Peter Stassen, and would love to give you a first little fun peek behind the scenes. Please enjoy the awesomeness that is Melanie & Peter and have a great start into this week!

We are officially back and I thought it's about time to bring this blog back to life. This year we headed to the wonderful white island of IBIZA for our family vacation, which is definitely one of the most beautiful places we've ever seen. This Balearic Island is only 45 km long and 25 km wide and therefore everything is within reach. So, if you've already been to Ibiza, you will most likely recognize all the spots below, and if you haven't and plan a trip, you will most likely fall in love with this island, too. ;-) I realize that I get more and more lazy. I took most of the photos with my iPhone (using the VSCOcam filters for all the bright colors), because I didn't wanna carry my heavy bag around all the time.

Today I'll start with a few impressions ... if you're feeling wanderlusty :-) Please enjoy and see you soon! xxxOOO

It's this wonderful time of year when I unplug, spend lots of time with friends & family, have some silly summer fun with my kiddos, hang out with them in the park or pool or ice parlor, keep the BBQ warm, have lots of cappuccini outside, and even more colorful drinks with colorful straws, and enjoy some unscheduled days relaxing and reloading my batteries.

 

Well, I will not be completely offline. I will continue posting random stuff about my loves and my life on INSTAGRAM. And thanks to latergram I will make sure that you get your daily dose of color, smiles and a little extra happiness there. ;-)

 

Have a great summer, wherever you'll be. Let having fun be the first thing on your agenda. I am looking forward to seeing you either on Instagram or back here in September. xxxOOO
