Dreamy Vienna! Cherry blossoms all over the place

The story goes like this. We were sitting hungry in our favorite French bistro downtown Vienna. Le Bol was busy and noisy but we enjoyed our breakfast. After we were done with our breakfast, Elena (the girl in the photos above) asked me if I wanted to accompany her to the shop, next to Le Bol, which has eyeglasses and I asked her to go to that magical street with the blossoming trees so we can take photos. We did both. First we went to the eyeglasses shop and then, we took the metro line U4 from Karlsplatz to Pilgramgasse (where I used to have an aparment once) and went to the cherry blossom trees. And this is what happened. No special make up and no hair dresser, we had a spontaneous photoshooting. So, this is my friend Elena in front of my camera. Elena doesn’t model in her life; she posed only for me. It’s safe to say that my friends are beautiful 🙂 As for me, one day I hope, I will be shooting for Dior #bigdreams :))

vienna blogs by the viennese girl blog

Those who follow The Viennese Girl blog might have noticed the changes we’ve made lately on the blog. Those are small but significant changes for me, as a founder and editor of this Vienna blog. Those are changes I‘ve been wanting to have for such a long time. The problem is that I have had no idea about anything that concerns coding but my friend Ioanna has! We found some free time and sat down and discussed what would work better for The Viennese Girl blog, how can we make it look better, and how can it be more user friendly. Thanks to Ioanna, those significant changes on the appearance of the blog were implemented and I am now more glad than before to have a blog that looks exactly the way I want. At the end of every meeting with Ioanna, I was joking to her: one day I will hire you as my secretary…But seriously, I am glad to have my friend Ioanna on board, who contributes to the blog with her valuable technical knowledge. She is a savvy IT girl.

We are working constantly to improve what we love, The Viennese Girl blog. A photography blog, a visual diary of Silia, who likes to discover beautiful things on a daily basis in Vienna, even when it’s cold and rainy outside. I hope you like the changes we’ve made, too.

On my birthday I took a day off from everything and Tony Gigov came up with the perfect idea: a birthday photo session. I guess, you already know what I like to do in my free time: taking photos, going around in the city…and eating sweets. I was checking the weather forecast for the whole week and hoped that the weather on Friday March 20th would be sunny and warm. It seems that someone up there listened to my wishes, and it was such a sunny, bright day. One of those days that you don’t want to end. One of those days you don’t want to go back home. It was the first day of the year that I got to wear shoes without socks and my favorite blouse I bought recently from COS as a birthday present from me to me. White, simple and comfortable. The result of the birthday photo session was about 900 photos and here are some photos of the birthday girl and a red vespa. Tony Gigov made me laugh all the time, and at the end, I was so happy, I took off my shoes and jumped in the air. Fortunately, there was nobody around there to see me being silly in real time. Embarrassed yet super happy.♥

I loved the Coffee Pirates. Ideal meeting point in Vienna for a hot chocolate and slice of cake before the uni lesson starts or in between lessons for a pause. You will probably not see any tourist in Coffee Pirates, situated next to Altes AKH in 9th district, but rather young students who crowd the entrance and make it difficult for me to open the door to step outside. Rumors say that they make very nice coffee there, but since I never drink coffee, I am not able to know. You have to try and find out yourself. What I especially liked was the decoration and the coffee cups in what they serve their drinks. This place is very very cute, and here on The Viennese Girl blog, you know, we love all the cute things in life ♥

When Tony asks you to let him take some pictures of you, you simply cannot say no, even if you don’t have any make up on your face, even if you don’t have that special outfit on you. Strangely enough, I feel comfortable going around the city and being photographed without wearing lots of makeup in order to look beautiful. He gave me chocolate and we had a relaxed stroll downtown Vienna talking mainly about our favorite subject: photography! Those pictures were taken in Graben, one of the most famous streets in Vienna’s first district, and its surroundings. I really had a nice time.♥
