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.♥

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.♥

This is what happens when your friends in Vienna are from Italy. They dress you up, they make you up, they take photos of you and they make you look like a model. But, wait! Did I say model? OMG, I am not a model, nor do I have the aspiration to be one. On the contrary! I feel very awkward looking at all those photos of myself all over the internet. But yes, we definitely love being creative and taking pictures that tell a story. And when I say pictures, I mean not only pictures of macaron, cupcakes, and Sacher torte, but also pictures of us too. Hence, for me it is more about taking up a role and creating a story, than modeling.

This blog post is made in Austria by the Italians and it took us half of the day to have the result that you see above. Who said taking nice pictures is easy? Not at all! It takes a lot of time and it is hard work. When we were done, we went to our favourite french bistro downtown Vienna, Le Bol, and we are already thinking of our next photo sessions. If you have any idea, let me know. ♥

I really wonder how do we manage to take all those photos when it’s so cold, windy and sometimes rainy outside. It’s like a hobby you like so much and you are not willing to give up even if you have to undertake it under those unpleasant circumstances. It was very cold when we snapped those photos. Cold weather is definitely not for me and definitely not a good idea for shooting outdoors.

But there are so many beautiful details around Vienna that we can hardly keep ourselves from not shooting, details that catch my attention and sweep me off my feet. This blog post includes many things I love lately. My new pair of boots from Zara, my xmas present from Mango, city lights, streets of Vienna, and one of my favorite chocolate shops.♥

When the weather forecast predicts snow, usually my friends warn me about it but this time nobody said anything and waking up to this snowy landscape was such a nice surprise. To be honest, I had a small suspicion, because there were some snow flakes in the air the night before but I never imagined that next day the ground would be blanketed by a foot of fresh snow.

Snow and the magical air that comes with it were inviting us to take some pictures. You see, some are ski enthusiasts while my friends and I are photos enthusiasts. Those photos were snapped at Maria-Theresien Square between Natural History Museum and the Art History Museum in Vienna. We chose this place not by chance. I wanted to have those round bushes that were covered by snow as the background (and I wanted to think that they were covered not by snow but by sugar). But maybe I had too high expectations and didn’t reckon the freezing cold that made our hands suffer and forced us leave the Maria-Theresien Square and run for that warm chocolate drink at Burgring 1 Cafe!♥
