My first steps into sewing and fashion design from urban Berlin!

A new job and not enough time…

IMGP0285Well, what to say first! The last two weeks had been quite busy for me, despite the fact that I’m about to start a new job in a new company and that this gave me many free days in between. Unfortunately, it did not feel to me like vacation at all! The main reason was that I had to provide so many papers for my new employer, going here and there all around Berlin City. The result was that I did not have any mood or inspiration left for any sewing projects. My mind is completely focused on the new job. I really hope that I get along with everyone in the new company and handle the new job well. It’s definitely not a dream job, but the payment is much better than in my previous job.

A second reason for my busy days is the fact that I’m looking for an apprenticeship or study starting already this year. The chances to get something last minute are not high, but maybe luck will be on my side again. I simply don’t want to wait another year to start something. Let’s see what happens about it all! I will keep you informed for sure.

By the way, the framed picture above shows my beloved darling who is at home in india for some weeks now to take care of some very important matters, including his EILTS english exam. I hope he masters it well, because he wants to apply so badly for a canadian visa with it.

Have all of you a nice spring and wish me luck with my new job!

Freezing cold and fashion week!

This week is all about following the fashion week shows, especially the menswear collections. There have been some quite interesting collections so far. I enjoyed seeing Dries Van Noten, Walter Van Beirendonck, Etro and my favorite designer James Long. I own one James Long sweater but seeing his collection makes me want to have more pieces. Watching fashion shows is the perfect thing while the weather outside is freezing cold. To give you an impression of Berlin winter I made some winter photographies for you. It’s not a lot, but it was not easy to get me out into the cold and to catch some decent pics with winter atmosphere this winter. Hope you enjoy the pics.

Hidden fall season places

What a great weekend! It was the perfect ending of my one week holiday. The sun was shining and the temperature was mild. On saturday I was invited to my parents place for lunch. We had stuffed zucchini, roast goose and self-made apple pie for dessert. I cannot remember how long it has been that I stuffed myself with food like that! The best was definitely my moms apple pie. It was made with fresh apples from my parents garden. And guess what they brought me from their garden: quinces! I already have some ideas what to do with them.

Of course this weekend was also perfect for nature photography. During the fall season you never know what to expect from the weather, so you always try to use sunny days to full capacity. Nature offers a pot full of colors at the moment and I have selected some of my snapshots and put them together for you on my blog. I was searching for places enchanted by the fall season here in Berlin. It’s amazing what places you can find when you search for them!

The fall season, a new beginning!

The fall season has started and for me as well as for many other people it always marked a new beginning. Maybe because it is the time when a new school year starts or because it is the time when the carefree summertime ends. For me it is the time when I look back on the past year and ask myself if it was successful or not. I’m wondering what the next year will bring for me. I’m wishing for changes, a new job, a new challenge. Hopefully I will be able to save some money for traveling and to spend memorable moments with my partner.

Here in Berlin the fall season brings a lot of rain and changing temperature along with colorful leaves and a melancholic atmosphere. This season is just perfect for romantic walks or cosy afternoons at home while the rain is dripping and the wind is whistling outside. I love the location of my flat in Berlin-Wedding because it is surrounded by so many parks and green areas. I made some photographs of my green neighborhood and I want to share them with you to show you what is inspiring me here during the fall season. So take a walk with me through my neighborhood and while you are doing this you can ask yourself what your new year is supposed to bring for you and what your wishes are!
