FENDI VIENNA – It was a hard working day but I enjoyed every single moment of it. We began at 09:00 shooting with Carola Pojer from ViennaWedekind. At 12:00 we started shooting Vicky from Bikinis&Passports and Kathi from Ketchembunnies. Our goal was to photograph the girls wearing pieces from the Resort 2017 Fendi collection with Vienna in the background. I had prepared ahead of time a list of the most photogenic places in the center of Vienna. It’s not everyday that you get to photograph beautiful girls wearing beautiful stylish outfits. I look forward to many more opportunities like this one.

I can’t tell you enough how much I loved the total FENDI look, and mostly the iconic red and white skirt, that I was wearing that day (why can’t I dress up like this everyday?).

By the way, have you guys seen their fashion show that took place at Fontana di Trevi in Rome? If not, watch it here. It is pure magic.

If you are looking for something special to wear (especially now during the Xmas season), I recommend that you pass by Kohlmarkt 5, in the heart of Vienna, to discover more of the FENDI world on your own. ♥

NEW YEARS RESOLUTIONS (42)

In collaboration with BIPA

Photography: Tony Gigov

Through this blog, last year I managed to achieve things that I had imagined only in my wildest dreams. Some of those things include winning the travel contest and flying to Miami with Austrian Airlines and Chanel asking me to take photos inside the new boutique in Graben. Besides, I was invited to UK, Slovenia, Greece, Germany and to some beautiful parts of the Austrian countryside. All those collaborations, press trips and invitations to events made me feel over the moon and made 2015 extraordinary. Having the chance to collaborate with so many prestigious successful companies is mind-blowing and I wish that 2016 will bring more of it.

This time Bipa asks what my intentions are. What do I intend to do in 2016? I kept it to myself for a long time, elaborating on it in my mind and I think it’s time to reveal my inner thoughts. I want to work as a fashion/travel/product photographer (blame it on Instagram). Two years ago, when I started this blog, I was taking photos with my mobile phone because that is all I had. I soon realized that investing money in a DSRL camera was more than necessary so I bought my first Canon Eos 700D as a Xmas present to myself. After one year, I realized that I need an upgrade and sold my Canon eos 700 D to buy a full frame camera, so I got the Canon Eos 6D. Now I really need to upgrade my computer because after 5 years of use, I still wonder how it’s still alive.

All those past years, I didn’t stop to learn. Photographers are like teachers and doctors, they never stop to learn. It’s a non stop learning process. Maybe I should write what I’ve learned during the process in another blog post.

Some words for this blog post. We wanted to create a story of a girl who does a photo shooting in the center of Vienna. When the photo shooting is wrapped up, that girl goes for shopping, buys some flowers, takes the tram and returns home. The outfit should be comfortable, yet elegant. Comfortable black loafers and dark blue pants. You can look elegant, while you are taking photos.

To sum it up:

In 2016, I want to work. I want to make my photography portfolio and an online shop. I want to improve my photography skills (it’s going to be a battle). I only want to do things that I love. I want to change my personal style (because I can’t forget that day when a friend of mine told me that it’s conservative). And of course, I want to travel more because during all those cold nights in my little Viennese room I can’t help but dreaming of exotic beaches and crystal waters some where in Bali or in Morocco. I want to be carefree (not so realistic but I want it). Use the hashtag #ichhabwasvor to find out more.

How exactly will all this happen? I think it will happen with a lot of work, persistence, consistency, a lot of luck and support from people who love The Viennese Girl blog like I do, support from my readers and Instagram friends. I keep saying to myself: New Year, new opportunities and this is exactly how I want to envision it, in a very optimistic state of mind.

I will end this post asking you this question: How do you envision your 2016? #ichhabwasvor

Although I have shared many Vienna travel tips on The Viennese Girl blog, I still receive emails from people asking me what to do and where to go during their stay in Vienna. Recently, a friend of mine (pictured in the photos above) visited me for 2 days in Vienna. As it was her first visit to Vienna, before her arrival, I was thinking of how to make the best of those 2 days for her, so I wrote down a 2 day program. If you are in Vienna in December, here are my recommendations, according to the program my friend and I followed:

1st day:

We started the day with a breakfast at Cafe little Britain. Then we went to the city centre, and roamed around the streets during the daylight. I showed her the most central streets like Graben, Kohlmarkt and Kärntnerstrasse. Afterwards, I brought my friend to see the view of the city from the top of Stephansdom. After that we went to Beaulieu for a little snack and to warm up our body as it has been cold, very cold outside. That was probably the most beautiful part of the whole day, because of the very Christmassy atmosphere in Palais Ferstel, where this french bistro is situated, and I ordered my favourite baguette with salmon and a rose lemonade, as always. So the day couldn’t end here without paying a visit to a Christmas market at Spittelberg. After the Christmas market, we ended up at the bar of 25 hours Hotel sipping wine. We headed back home, but of course if you still have time and energy, you can visit the Christmas markets in Rathaus, Maria-Theresien-Platz, in Museumsquartier and in Karlsplatz or maybe some of them…

2nd day:

The day started with breakfast at Nascha’s. We simply loved it and we had to fill ourselves up with energy for the long day ahead us. After breakfast, I took my friend to Belvedere. Here, you have 3 options: visit the museum, visit the Christmas market and the gardens. We went back to the center on foot and head over to Sacher Hotel for a Sacher Torte. Then we had two options: either visiting Schönbrunn or going to a restaurant for Schnitzel. We opted for the second option, as it was cold outside and we preferred to stay indoors. My friend wanted to check out that famous Viennese dish, the schnitzel. Last stop of the day was at the bar of Sofitel for some cocktails.

I hope you got some nice ideas from this blog post…ah wait: don’t forget to visit Naschmarkt…♥

Recently someone on Instagram thanked me for all the Vienna tips that helped him to get to know Vienna better. I am still surprised by the fact that my initial idea of making my personal Vienna travel guide and chronicle my discoveries ultimately works. The Viennese Girl blog is about two years old and I gladly keep on writing all my Vienna findings and places I visit in this city where I live, so you can visit them too. So here is to one more of those Vienna discoveries:

Lately, a good friend of mine and I had breakfast at Parlor, a living room decorated in black and white with Vitra Accessoires. My friend and I enjoyed the breakfast, taking pictures inside Parlor and the views over Stadtpark from the 12th floor of Intercontinental Lounge. Thanks for the warm welcome, we’ll be back soon! ♥

You can find more info about the Parlor restaurant here.

Have you ever been to Munich for Oktoberfest? As for me, never, until this week I got the chance to visit Munich together with Thomas Sabo. The flight from Vienna to Munich lasted only 45 minutes and I didn’t really realize that I travelled to another country since in both cities German is the spoken language. And although I am not that kind of person who fancies drinking beer and loves German cuisine, I was so curious to see it for myself what is this Oktoberfest all about and enjoyed every moment being a guest of Thomas Sabo among other 35 bloggers from Europe.

If you ever find yourself in Munich for the Oktoberfest, don’t forget to take with you Dirndl and Lederhosen and if you need a Munich travel guide, then contact Mrs. Dorothea Nelle. By the way, did you know that Oktoberfest is called Wiesn as well? Because I didn’t know that but I guess it’s not a big mistake since I am neither Austrian nor German…♥

Renting a motor boat in the Danube is my favorite summer activity in Vienna and if there is also ice cream somewhere around me, then we are actually talking about a dreamy Sunday experience. This is how I personally like to spend my Sunday afternoon in Vienna (well, if I cannot be somewhere in the Greek islands🙂 ). With a good company and definitely not in the city center. And there are some houses right next to the Danube with a boat outside and it looks like a little Venice (with a certain dose of imagination of course 🙂 ). And little before the nightfall, we ended up strolling around Augarten (which reminds me of the parks in Paris) and later on, had dinner on a wonderful terrace at the Augarten restaurant overlooking the beautiful park.

What is the best way to spend Sunday afternoon for you? ♥

Just a few shots I took this Saturday in Vienna wearing a very summery outift because of the heat that hit Vienna this weekend. Saturday in Vienna started with ice cream from Ferrari, buying short pants for the holidays and later on, carefree stroll along the Danube river. Oh, I could really live in an endless summer if it were possible and I am really looking forward to my summer holidays on the Greek islands and to a wonderful collaboration I am going to have the coming week….. all the rest here is just a routine from which I am trying to escape…♥

June is literally not a fun month for me because of the exams at the university but I needed to walk around with my camera in one hand and a Kurt frozen yogurt in another and breathe some fresh air while taking some pictures at the center of Vienna, as I used to do back in the first June I was in Vienna, four years ago. Here are some snapshots that I love to share with you all on The Viennese Girl blog.♥

I am going through some hard times at the moment and this is because a lot of stuff must be done and when they are done I feel too tired to work for The Viennese Girl blog. There are days that I have so much to do and don’t know where to begin with. But I am not here to tell you that I have no time. I want to tell you that breakfast in a beautiful cafe is always a good idea (like Paris!). Precious time in a cafe with friends or just by myself, both cases are a very enjoyable experience. This time I went to cafe Ansari alone but I found friends there. One more proof of how small Vienna is and there is always this chance to meet persons that you know here and there accidentally. I have been told that Cafe Ansari is usually full but on Monday morning, it wasn’t so much and we found a table immediately. We sat together and really enjoyed our breakfast at Cafe Ansari and intend to come back soon.♥
