Madrid

Image
 It's all about food.......and culture. This is pretty much everything our trip to Madrid was about 🙈. We spent last weekend there, on Monday we got back, and since yesterday I'm lying in my bed ill and with fever. The perfect situation to write a post 👍👌 By the way, my laptop is at home (I'm at my bf's house) so it's the first time I edited the pictures with apps (Aviary and VSCO) at least for a blogspost, and first time I'm writing a post from my smartphone. So I hope everything will go well 😃
Our trip to Madrid was of course beyond amazing, even though it was raining the whole weekend like crazy, but I mean it's Spain....it can only be good there 😉 For me the most important place to visit was the Museo del Prado,  as an art historian it's of course a must as there are so many masterpieces!  And I love the works from VelĂĄzquez so much.... To see "Las Meninas" in real life was a dream come true!  My tip here would be, if you really want to …

A typical end of the year résumé pt. 2/Beginning of 2017

Image
About 2016. Its been so long since I`ve posted the last time that I first of all had to remember how this actually works. I`ve already posted a "A typical end of the year rĂ©sumĂ©" post about 2014, somehow I couldn`t manage to write the same about 2015. Specially the end of 2015 and the beginning of 2016 was way to busy for me, it was my last months studying plus working that it didn`t leave me time to write here. Which I missed. A LOT. 
Yesterday I was totally motivated to change my blog design, while doing this I read some old posts and felt how much I really missed this. Anyway this post should not be about my love for blogging, I wanted to talk to you about 2016. 
Some really big changes (in a very good way) happend in 2016, although I know so many people who didn`t have a good 2016 and also the last months were pretty hard for my family and me. 
Let`s start with the good part! I am so thankful and happy for 2016 because it gave me 2 special things: my Bachelor`s degree and w…

London love

Image
This May I got to know my absolutely favorite city I`ve ever visited so far: London!  It was love at first sight!  Already from the plane my heart felt totally for this city! And as we landed it got worse, I got amazed by everything haha. The whole culture, food (I loooooooove fish and chips), people (this incredibly politeness!!!), architecture, design (even every little coffeehouse it doesn't matter in which corner it stands has such a beautiful decoration), coffee (after London I got coffee addicted haha, so good coffee over there...), art (the absolutely highlight was for me the Alexander McQueen exhibition, I was speechless the whole time and running around like this emoji with hearts over the eyes :D and at the National Gallery Van Goghs "Sunflowers"), .... ok I could go on like this for ever so I will stop now but you probably got my feeling for London: ultimate crush! I hope I will try to make it possible to visit this city every year...
This post is also very spec…

Instagram update

Image
Dear Instagramers. For all those, who love Instagram as much as I do, here are the pictures I posted in the last days. The first one is my home made ginger-bread-latte (not totally as good as Starbucks` one, but mine has definitely less calories :P) You will see that I was trying to deal with this insane cold we had some days ago, anyway it got a lot warmer these days!  Hope you visit my Instagram profile and get to see my whole Instagram diary.
cheers! 

Chiara Ferragni on InStyle Germany cover

Image
A new era. Today in the morning I looked up on Instagram, during breakfast, as usual. But couldn't believe what I saw. A Blogger is on InStyle Germany cover :O
Don't get me wrong, I am totally happy for her and incredibly prowd.
The thing is, fashion and art are changing so much, so fast! And also I think that its actually pretty cool, we, human beings, are creatures of habits.
What happened to that time when models were on covers? What happened to that time when going to a vernissage was a chique, classy thing? (I have a story to explain that ;))
I guess although being cramped to our habits, we will have to change with it and make those our new habits...
So here is my story about the vernissage. Yesterday my feet were aching. And I had this vernissage in the evening I wanted to go (the first one on contemporary art) but before that I had university the whole day. So no way I was going to wear heels. Although I was feeling kind of bad and was afraid of being undressed because…

VelĂĄzquez exhibition Vienna

Image
"Le peintre des peintres" (Manet). Hi folks, how is your beginning of the new year? I`m actually very happy with mine, as there were some things I`ve been wanting to do for such a long time and am achieving this all these days. One of those was: posting more often! Which is happening pretty good this January. I`ll do my best to keep on with this, as it will get pretty difficult from mid January on (tests, tests, tests...).

Let`s talk about VelĂĄzquez. As Manet called him "the painter of painters" I totally share this fascination and passion with him. 
So you can imagine my happiness as I saw on my university schedule that there will be a lecture during the whole semester only about VelĂĄzquez. No way I was going to miss this. 
Okay, so there I am sitting in the first lecture (I think it was already at the first one) and they tell me that there is going to be an exhibition with many most important and famous works from VelĂĄzquez in our Museum of Fine Arts in Vienna!!! :O…

Best Book Ever pt 2

Image
"What are you looking at? 150 years of modern art in the blink of an eye" From Will Gompertz. As I already mentioned here this is my absolutely favorite book right now! If you are interested in art and have your difficulties with modern art, or even more with contemporary art, you have to read this book! 
I didn`t finish it yet, anyway I already love it and can`t wait to finish it, it`s getting more and more interesting! 
Definitely a must for art historians!
After finishing it, I will update you with a "summering it up" post ;)
