As you can tell from the photos above, not so many people go for a walk in Stadtpark when it’s freezing cold outside. This time, on my walk in Stadtpark I encountered just an Asian tourist couple and few other persons. Of course, there were also the ducks and pigeons, that didn’t seem to be happy with that cold either. When in summer people lay down on the grass and you can hardly find a bench which is not occupied, in winter the scenery changes and on days like those we are going through this week, the biggest park in the center of Vienna turns into a wonderland and I absolutely enjoyed my leisurely walk and realized that the park is beautiful anytime of the year.

Extra tip: if you are around there, don’t forget to visit the restaurant Meierei im Stadtpark.

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. ♥

There isn’t a better way to spend a Saturday afternoon rather than catching up with dear friends in a super cute cafe like Himmelblau, which means azure in English. This was actually my second visit at Himmelblau. I remember the first time I visited it was back in summer, you can find my summery visit here. This time I took some pictures outside in the Kutschkermarkt and later on I jumped into Himmelblau to warm up. Our coffee was served in azure cups, we made ourselves comfortable and uploaded some spontaneous photos of the three of us on Instagram.♥

Between university exams and photography lessons, I managed to catch up with some dear friends over a cup of coffee. Here is to another cafe that we visited most recently. Burgring 1 has its address as the name and a special character because of its shabby-chic interior. Besides, this is one more place in Vienna where I can speak Italian with the staff! If I am in the area, between Burggarten and Mariahilferstrasse, and have some spare time, I stop by for a laid back -chocolate- drink. Three are the things that I like at Burgring 1: the lights dangling from the ceiling, the comfortable couches, and the big windows – I guess because I always have that habit to do some people watching of those passing by.♥

The Event – thank you for coming!

The Viennese girl blog event took place yesterday for the first time at Wunderladen Fashion Cafe in Vienna. Thank you all and each one of you for coming, for showing me your support and your love by being there. I met so many interesting like-minded enthusiastic people and received a constructive and insightful feedback for the blog that helps me a lot. At the moment of writing this post, I am thinking of some of you, who brought a smile to my face, Maria from Bulgaria, Natalie from Russia, Kely from Brazil, Jasmina from Finland, Valentina from Italy, Carly from Australia, Laura, my Greek friends and of course how can I forget Mr. Dado and so many others from Usa and the two sisters who just arrived in Vienna from London. This is the best evidence, that The Viennese Girl Blog has an international flair and friends from all over the world. Thank you for coming. It means a lot to me meeting you in person.

As I have already said in the previous post, it was the first time that I organized something like that and I have the feeling that people enjoyed the evening so much like I did. Special thanks to Sabrina, the owner of Wunderladen Cafe, who let us use her place and make this happen. Wunderladen cafe was without a doubt the ideal place for The Viennese Girl blog event. It felt like being at home. Besides, thanks to Elena Azzalini for making this event more special and memorable with her always beautiful photography.♥

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.♥

How do you prepare yourself to travel? Don’t tell me you are like my cousin that does nothing (sorry cousin). I remember that every time we were about to visit a European capital city together, he did absolutely nothing. I was the one who did all the research on the web before the departure. This means reading blogs for tips, writing long lists with the things that we should see and do, downloading maps, and buying museum tickets. My cousin did nothing maybe because he knew that he had a hard core traveler on his side and he could just relax and rely on me. To be honest to you, I find pleasure on preparing a trip and collecting useful information but on the other side, I would love it if someone someday would organize a trip for me and i would have to do absolutely nothing. Someone who would say to me “I have booked everything, you don’t have to do something.” How cool would that be?

Unfortunately I don’t get to travel as much as I wish I did and that has as result me playing the tourist in my own town. I guess, that is a bad symptom of a person who was bitten by the travel bug but doesn’t travel that often. Photos of this post are taken at the Tourist Info Office in Albertinaplatz. For all the avid travelers like me that are about to visit Vienna, check my blog for Vienna tips and once you are here, visit the Tourist Info Office to get brochures and maps that they have created for you. There are so many brochures for free in different languages and people who work there are willing to welcome and help you to make your stay unforgettable. ♥

Oh la la

Oh la la, voilà! Business cards for The Viennese Girl blog! My friend Ioanna made them for me and they are simple and fabulous. She made them exactly how I asked her to make them (she is the best personal assistant – have to mention that). Mint with gold letters. I simply love those two colors combined together: mint with gold!! Except the colors, I wanted them to be so simple, just the name of the website in the middle and nothing else. I received them recently and got so excited, I never had something like that before.
If you really fancy having one, just send me an email with your address and I will send one card, to the two first ones who write me, as a little something. ♥

Happy 2015

happy 2015

I couldn’t find a better photo to wish you Happy New Year. This tiny creature, Shorty, and I wish you all the best for 2015. Many thanks to the persons who are close to me, support me, and make my life more beautiful (they know who they are).

For the year that went by, I keep only the good moments and for the year that just came, may I make a wish? I wish to get back to the greek islands as soon as possible. Καλή χρονιά ♥
