SUNDAY POST: To New beginnings

Harper's Bazaar. I scheduled my Sunday post just to find out (while at work today) that it hadn't been published = FAIL! So sorry guys so you have to read my Sunday post on a Monday!  I'm rather annoyed at this but I am much more happy about what I am going to tell you now:
New York has been postponed... for the time being!
I know *bohooo* but I am not sad at all, as a matter of fact I am thrilled and more than delighted to postpone my New York venture because....... *drum roll* 

I AM GOING TO BERLIN AND WILL BE WORKING FOR THE BEST MAGAZINE EVER:  Harper's Bazaar Germany!
It all happened so quick - I am still trying to comprehend that I will be spending the next 4 months (for now) in Berlin, with my family and the best friends, working in the online editorial office department of my all time favorite Magazine. I mean, I can not put it any other way than saying, a dream has truly come true!

''As soon as you stop wanting something you get it.'' - Andy Warhol

Doesn't this quote just hit the nail on the head? Okay, I didn't really stop wanting this Internship but for quite some time I had, unintentionally 'forgotten' about my dream. Let's put it that way. I have always seen my future at Harper's Bazaar (I'm not even joking) but you know how things work. Life happens, you experience things, take on different jobs and let yourself be influenced by all kind of things, and people.
For me, I've always loved writing. But somewhere along the way, of studying while juggling work, multiple other obligations and the blog I kind of ended up wanting to do something else (not so completely different), that would not involve as much writing as I actually loved to!  So during my final year at Uni I started to develop this desire of going to New York for a month or two before moving back home and to work at a PR Agency. Well, you know how that worked out hehe 

When Harper's Bazaar extended an invitation to come work in the Berlin office, I could have never said no! What an amazing opportunity this is guys. I can't wait to get to Berlin and for my first day as an official team member of Harper's Bazaar alongside one of my favorite babes Veronika Heilbrunner!

So if you have a dream, do your best to work towards it and never give up. But once you have done all you could, do have some patience and you will get what you want!

Happy Sunday ermm... Monday

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!
