Vienna Ball season – I have some great news. First of all, travelling starts over again for TVG (=The Viennese Girl). I am leaving for Italy tomorrow together with Anastacia for one week. This is the first press trip for the year 2017. It is organised by ENIT-Italia. Check out our Instagram channels for daily updates. And the second good news is that Lorin from Canaj Visuals did one more amazing video for The Viennese Girl blog and I hope you’ll enjoy it as much as we did filming it. Thanks to the invitation from the Ball der Wiener Sängerknaben, who gave us the opportunity to attend their Ball and create this beautiful video. It was also an opportunity to get together, talk, laugh, dance and forget all the rest…for a night! What do you think about the choice of the music? Lorin initially had the idea to go for a classical Mozart song, but I thought that we should give to the ball a more young modern touch, and so we went for the song,“Falling”, from Secrets in Stereo. In general, I never thought that The Viennese Girl would ever have videos. But look how things turned out! Unexpectedly good! Fairy tale styling hair was from my all time favourite hair salon B.lounge Vienna, and my pink pastel dress was from Peek&Cloppenburg. Hope you like it and you get the chance to visit a ball during the Vienna Ball season.♥

The Viennese girl presents Christmas in Vienna. – It was a while ago when I talked with Lorin from Canajvisuals.com over a cup of coffee, and asked him to help me create a video that will showcase how magical Vienna is during the Christmas season. This is the first time that I’m doing a video for The Viennese Girl blog, and it is also the first time that I worked with Lorin. I explained to him what exactly I had in my mind and how I wanted the final result to be. It should be magical with a fairy tale feeling. It should be exactly how Christimas in Vienna is, and it should stay true to the philosophy and the style of The Viennese Girl blog. Everything went perfectly. The only problem we faced was the music. We both had in mind two well-known beautiful songs and we knew that one of the two would complement our video beautifully. But it turned out to be impossible to get them because of the super expensive copyright license. We had to find another solution. However, I loved working with Lorin, especially for the reason that he takes my opinion into consideration and we have something in common: we are both perfectionists. We strive for perfection, and we worked hard despite the freezing cold out there to create something that you will love to watch. This is our way of wishing you a Merry Christmas. If you like the video Christmas in Vienna, feel free to leave a comment (because I am so curious to know your thoughts….) ♥
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.
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. ♥
All pictures were taken by me
This week, on Friday the 24th of June, I had another opportunity to play dress up, to feel like a little princess and to fall in love with my life here in Vienna. It was the first time I attended the Fête Impériale Ball, but it was my third ball of this year, after the Vienna Opera ball and the Kaffeesiederball at Hofburg Palace. To be honest, after experiencing three balls in Vienna, the Vienna Opera Ball is on the top of my list. But I liked the Fête Impériale very much as well, especially for the decoration and its summer character. Yes, on The Viennese Girl blog, we do love summer balls.
From a photography point of view, the situation was quite out of my control because I couldn’t really move and get the picture composition that I wanted. However, in one of the photos above, there is a beautiful picture of the Director of the Ball, Elisabeth Gürtel, together with Princess Benedikte of Denmark.
I wish I get more opportunities to dress up like this and to take pictures of fairy tale moments like this ball, not only in Vienna, but also on a more worldwide level. In Cannes for example, I am just saying… : ) ♥
With all those flowers and trees blooming around me it was impossible not to take some pictures of Vienna in April. I was thinking all the time that spring in Vienna with all those cherry blossom trees and all kinds of flowers is actually a very good reason for foreigners to visit the city. But if you come to Vienna in April for the flowers, which by the way also smell damn good, you have to know where to find them. Since I have lived here for many years now, it wasn’t difficult for me to spot them.
The photos above were taken at Burggarten, Volksgarten and Stadtpark and they are to my eyes more like paintings than photos. It is like someone has drawn them. Similar photos (or paintings) from last year’s spring you can find here.
Once, I recall, they called me pastries photographer, now they will probably call me flower photographer, but in the reality what I really love taking photos of is this. Now I am leaving you for a couple of days. I am invited to paradise, also known as Greece, for a press trip. Bye bye dear Vienna. Auf wiedersehen.♥

Bucket bag: Leo&Violette
With the photos that Margarita took for The Viennese Girl blog, I would like to show you a little part of my University Campus Vienna which is situated in Alsergrund, the 9th district of the city. The University Campus Vienna used to be General Hospital but now is a joyful place, with gardens and bars! Oh and parties, especially when the weather is good!
The imagery we created this time is obviously focused on the big pink tree that blossoms this time of the year. We went to the University Campus Vienna very early in the morning to be sure that no student would be around in order to take a few photos uninterrupted. In the Campus there were me, Margarita and the gardener and it was a great way to start the day. ♥

I feel a little bad about all the radio silence here but I need to finish a thesis for the University of Vienna that has to be ready by the 20th of April. So, apart from the photography love, I am still a student who deals with thesis and deadlines. However, I always try to find a bit of time for a little stroll in the center of Vienna during the day and I promise to myself that I can always study at night. This time Margarita joined me to that little stroll, and as she always carries her photo camera with her, she snapped some photos of me. I thought I should share the photos she took on The Viennese Girl blog to show you how spring looks like in Vienna.
Which is the best time of the year for you? Which is the best season to visit Vienna? I have always wondered how spring is in Sydney, or in Tokyo, or in Singapore… Maybe because I have never been to those places, so I am just a little bit curious, as always! But soon I am going to discover how spring is in Munich ♥

You can find them everywhere in my room: next to my pc on my desk, under my duvet, in my bucket bag, behind my books and between my magazines. I am talking about those spherical EOS lip balms that occupy my space throughout all year and I am happy that they do because in winter (thank God is behind us) my lips were never dry… But even when my lips are not dry, I use the balms because they come in different colors and irresistible scents that soon become a little addiction of mine.
And I was glad to find out that Bettine share the same love for the Eos lipbalms and was up for a funny photo shooting where we had to try out the three new limited flavors, Fresh Watermelon, Passion Fruit and Honeysuckle and play around with them on one of the sunny days last week at Schönbrunn.
♥Happy Easter everybody♥

Bucket bag: Le Violette
Model: Darina Korotchenko
Darina had her birthday the day we shot those pictures, and that’s why I brought her a bouquet of red roses. She put them in the Léo et Violette bag and let me take some pictures of her while she held them. It wasn’t the perfect photo shooting day as it was cold and windy, nevertheless, we had a nice stroll around the city center.
I have been looking for a bag like this for a long time now. A bag with a shoulder strap that I can carry from the morning till late night, because I often leave home early in the morning and don’t return home during the day just to change outfit. Elegant and practical at the same time, the bag is perfectly sized, fitting my three essentials, wallet, keys and cell phone, plus sunglasses, a few cosmetics and my photo camera.
You will likely spot me around Vienna holding my new bucket bag, made in Italy ♥
