My favorite mornings are definitely not the ones having me jump from bed and 10 minutes later running to catch the next bus (actually happens). My favourite mornings are those when I have the privilege to sleep enough and lie on bed stress free a little after I wake up, have shower, enjoy breakfast and kick off the day with my morning routine in order to feel good with myself for the day.

In this blog post, I wanted to create a visual story about those favorite mornings where I indulge in a morning beauty routine before stepping out of home. While taking those photos, I was thinking that I have been using Vichy products since my days in high school. They have been my loyal friends throughout the past years.

It was fun taking those photos because I love product photography. I intentionally made the photos bright, so they reflect the cleanness and freshness that Vichy products bring to the skin, AND they match perfectly to our bathroom. Bonjour Vichy.

It was snowing outside. A bunch of food lovers and I were keeping it warm as we were gathered at NENI Kochschule to indulge in the art of making good food with Mrs Haya.

Cooking Lessons in Vienna: A Treat for the Senses

Although I wasn’t supposed to blog about food anymore because I am more and more into fashion and traveling, I thought I should make an exception and share my experience with all of you who love my Vienna tips, good food, and cooking lessons. After all, The Viennese Girl blog is all about the things that I like.

Cooking Lessons in Vienna: An Authentic Experience

The cooking lesson lasted about five hours. I have to say, I wasn’t bored at all because Mrs Haya, with her passion and temperament, created such a cheerful atmosphere by telling us stories and showing us how to make the perfect bread, most delicious sweets, and mouth watering soup among many other delicious dishes.

Cook Like a Local in Vienna: Tips and Tricks from Expert Chefs

Time passed by without even noticing it. I was really impressed by Mrs Haya’s good organization and professionalism. You know, it’s not easy to be a head of a team and guide 10 persons at the same time.

The Best Way to Learn How to Cook is by Going to Vienna

If you’re in Vienna and looking to learn more about cooking, there are plenty of local teachers and cooking schools that can help you. But before you sign up with any school, it’s important to understand what they teach and what they don’t, so you can decide which one fits your needs best. After all, learning how to cook isn’t just about memorizing recipes and following directions – it’s about understanding food and preparation so that you can experiment with different ingredients and techniques on your own time.

As you can tell from the photos, I tried to capture the beauty and the action. I focused on the action and less on the people. There was a lot of movement, spontaneity and no natural light. A real photography challenge for me.

The whole experience was like a food party that took my memories back to Instabul and reminded me of my favourite film : A touch of Spice (don’t tell me you don’t know that movie). I have never experienced something like that in Vienna. Great music (even Greek music), great experience and above all…great food at Neni Kochschule.

New years resolutions

The Viennese Girl blog Vienna AustriaMy New years resolutions

Thanks to this blog I managed to achieve things last year that I could have imagine only in my wildest dreams. A few of those things were 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 press trips and invitations to events made me feel over the moon and made 2015 extraordinary. Having the chance to partner with so many prestigious successful companies is mind-blowing and I wish that 2016 will bring more of it.

My New years resolutions

At the end of this year Bipa asked me which my New years resolutions for 2016 are. What do I intend to do in 2016? I kept it to myself for a long time. I think it’s time to reveal my inner thoughts.

My wish it to work as a freelance 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. This is how 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. This is how 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.

NEW YEARS RESOLUTIONS (22)

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.

NEW YEARS RESOLUTIONS (26)

A few words about 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.

NEW YEARS RESOLUTIONS (24)

To sum it up:

In 2016, I want to work. I want to make my photography portfolio and an online shop. I would like to improve my photography skills (it’s going to be a battle). I only want to do things that I love.

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? With a lot of work, persistence, consistency, a lot of luck and support from people who love The Viennese Girl blog as much as 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
