Sometimes my job requires me to travel from party to event. And while that sounds glamourous (it most certainly is), it also sometimes leads to me catching a 7 am red eye to Frankfurt after a night of celebration in Monaco… By now I am very stingy with my time, and no one less than Longines could have persuaded me to. But, as I landed in Frankfurt last Sunday, to be whisked away to Baden Baden by shuttle, I could clearly see that I had made the right decision.
After working with CYBEX for a while now and them being somehow part of my family, it was great to finally meet the whole team at their Berlin fashion show on the 5th. It was hosted at the Secret Garden, and with guests, such as Karolina Kurkova, glamourous and fun. But really the best part was to sit and chat with the CYBEX founders, Anna K, their shooting star designer (Ukrainian like me, what is not to love about that!?) and be able to tell them how much I love their products and working with them.
You know how you grew up with some brands? Kinderschokolade, for example, will always make Germans living abroad teary-eyed and nostalgic, and 40-somethings will want Zwieback when they get sick. Well, my boys have been growing up with Lodenfrey, and now it’s Matteo’s first official Oktoberfest season where he gets to sport a pair of Lederhosen.
One of the best (and most exhausting) parts of being a fashion and lifestyle blogger as well as wife to my adventurous husband, is the travelling. I love it, you know it, but every additional family member makes it more strenuous and taxing.
