So as promised here comes the post from our second day in Amsterdam… After another wonderful breakfast in the hotel we set off to visit the Stedelijk museum. The museum is the most meaningful for modern and contemporary art and design in the Netherlands. Luckily audio guides are offered for free which really helps when viewing the artworks. I don’t know about you, but I often find myself looking at an object in museum an trying to fathom what on earth the artist was thinking when he or she constructed it. Modern art especially can be quite strange at times and while of course art is meant for interpretation as much as truly understanding the artists motivation – I do feel that gaining a bit of context helps me better understand the message. For example, the string of lights shown in some of the pictures below are by an artist…

A few weeks ago, my boyfriend and I decided to take a spontaneous three-day trip to Amsterdam. We have a long-distance relationship which works out fine for the most part and we try to see each other every other weekend but sometimes it’s nice to get away to somewhere new and explore together. I have actually been to Amsterdam twice, but the last time I went was at 17 so it’s been a while and D has actually never been. From where he lives in Münster it is only a 2 1/2 hour drive so easily manageable (although I first had to take a four-hour train up to Münster…). We drove to our hotel on a Sunday and got to our hotel quite late so didn’t explore much that day. D found our hotel the “Student Hotel” which is located slightly outside the centre… however, it turned out to be…

Here is a bit of a picture-heavy post to celebrate this wonderful (and very late) summer… These pictures were taken on the way home to my parents after a night-out for a friends 30th… so feeling a bit delicate but this flowy Zara dress was perfect for the occasion (i.e. hangover brunch). Seeing as it’s a pretty simple dress it goes well with some more statement boots, which I got last year but are a big trend for this season. Kind of hoping for colder weather now… time to get out those jumpers and coats! Much love! Thanks to Dominik Emmert for the photos.

Last week was my 24th Birthday. It’s crazy how another year flew by and how dates like this kind of creep up on you even when you’ve been expecting them (do you know what I mean?). So, it’s time for some reflection… My 23rd year in life has been a good one. I finished my bachelor’s degree with a grade far better than I had expected and immediately went on to study a master’s degree in Creative Communication and Brand Management which I then changed, one term in, to Creative Direction. While it might be difficult to understand the difference between the two courses, the degree I am studying now is far more creative and has led to a personal development over the past few months which I am equally surprised by and also very happy about. Suffice to say: it was a great decision. This year, or more…
