For me, the new year literally started off with a totally different perspective. Apparently I have to wear prescription lenses now! … My left eye was always ,,bad’’ and working in front of a screen most of the day didn’t help, so I had no choice but visit an eyewear shop to get glasses. Luckily we have one of VIU’s flagship stores in Leipzig – so I knew where to go first! They have all sorts of cool hipster modern designs you can think of – and it’s affordable, too. The store itself is already worth a visit, especially when you’re looking for a cool shooting location. Each store has individual interior, depending on the city’s vibes.
I picked out the Voyager – a rather minimal and clean silver design. I wanted them to be as subtle as possible and never thought, I’d be so happy with glasses. It’s like a cute accessory, that makes you look smarter and more sophisticated – but in a cool way! What do you guys think?
Now that 2018 is finally here, I’m more and more in the mood for getting my sh** together, learn from my mistakes and work on my goals. This is my year – I can be whoever I want to be and do whatever I feel like doing. My mantra:
Work hard, play harder and enjoy yourself.
One of my big goals for 2018 included to take more time and better care of myself, which might sound easy but in fact, it’s the hardest thing of all. Putting myself first has been so difficult for me over the past year. Both, my freelancing and blog-related work are super time consuming and I work much more compared to my previous 9-5 job. Disconnecting not only from my phone but from the world and thoughts around me is something I’ll need to learn, so I thought the first step is to set myself smaller goals on the way to help me stay focused and motivated. I’m aware this doesn’t happen overnight, so I’ll get right into it – no more procrastinating, no excuses!
