Sunday post: Never give up on something you really want!

Sunday thoughts. Whether it's a job, a new apartment, a trip you been planing to do for a while or the encounter with a human being so dear to you, whatever it is the #quoteoftheday you can find on my Instagram today (@minnieknows) kind of puts everything into perspective. At least for me. I have been reading Masha's Sonntags Posts for a while now and have been feeling so inspired. The Sunday posts are always the best I must say. I know, all of us love fashion, and reading about designers and new pieces someone has in their wardrobe so we all can unite in buying the one particular piece of clothing. I'm not judging anyone - else I would be judging myself. But for me personally and what I want Minnie Knows to be revolving about, I say enough with the superficiality! It's time to introduce the weekly Sunday post or should I say thought? 

Since I've been super stressed about my upcoming trip to New York where I'm planning to stay for two months, I started reading and rea-reading my babe's Alice impressions of her 6 months stay in the City when she interned at Alexander Wang. What?! Amazing right? Long story short. I still haven't found a room to rent and although I'm impressed with Alice for organising her accommodation once she got there, I'm too much of a control freak and scaredy cat to hope for the best once I'm there! Thanks to Alice who also was so kind to email me some advice on where to stay and what's a good and safe neighbourhood, I'm also living on craigslist these days. Literally. 

So when I read todays quote I instantly associated the message with my current situation! I know I know, it's only an internship and it's only for 2 months. But still, it's a country I've never been to, a place so far away from home and all my loved ones and just so so big! Although I'm from London I still feel like New York will be on another level! Nonetheless, I'm so very excited to finally be there and hope I can sort our everything prior to my departure in a few weeks! 

Whatever happens in the next few weeks, I won't give up on this dream of being in New York, living and working because I really really want this! Although it's difficult to wait, to plan and make sure everything goes right (even though you can't control everything right), it sure is more difficult to regret! 

So whatever you want, whatever you really really want, don't give up! Travel, experience, take risks, adventure, have fun and above all LIVE! 

Happy Sunday

Interior Inspo

Interior Love. Those of you who follow me on Instagram HERE will know that I'm soon moving back to Berlin, the city of my heart, my first love and home! I'm so excited for all that is ahead of me, starting with my new apartment and how to decorate it. So expect an interior post on this space now and then, from now on! I simply delight in looking at interior photos especially on Pinterest just to get some inspiration on what I want to do with my room, kitchen or home work space! 
I'm still looking for the perfect apartment which proves to be more of a challenge than I thought but once I found my dream place, I can't wait to start decorating! 

P.S If any of you are from Berlin and know of anyone looking to rent his/her 2 bed Apartment (preferably in Prenzlauer Berg, Kreuzberg or Friedrichshain) then let me know! 

Have a lovely day!

Wedding Attire

Wedding. As you have already seen in my previous Berlin article (HERE), this is what I wore to my friend's wedding that i was honored to be part of! I know I know black isn't really the color to wear to a wedding but I thought one can never go wrong with a little black dress. I was so happy when I found this little stunner by Monsoon! The detailing is so gorgeous and the length was just perfect too. I paired it with black mid heels and voila, I was good to go.

The whole wedding day festivities which were so very beautiful, made me think about what a huge decision it actually is to say 'I DO' and dedicate one's life to this one person. Many of my friends have been getting married lately and I couldn't be more happy for them! I'm so impressed by everyone who takes that step and decides to spend the rest of his/her life with the ONE person that makes them truly happy. Isn't that what everyone wants in life? 
 I am so incredibly happy for my friends who are now husband and wife.

TRAVEL: Berlin

Monsoon Dress // Chanel Bag // New Look Heels // Bvlgari Bracelet // Vintage Earrings

Berlin. As promised, here are the photos I managed to snap in Berlin while busy catching up with family and friends and spending quality time with my loved ones! After my amazing trip to and throughout the South of France, I spent a week in Berlin where I primarily visited to attend the wedding of a very good friend of mine, hence the fancy first photo up there! I had a splendid time, as usual. 
Those of you who have been to Berlin know how special this city is. I have been missing home, family and my friends a lot lately and although I'm currently planning my 2 months stay in New York (starting next month), I am so excited to start putting my permanent move back to Berlin into action!
