when I look back to January I see a month full of luck, happiness and peace of mind. Good luck because we got a lot of snow and also a lot of sunshine and therefore I had many chances to enjoy winter wonderland as usual, up in the mountains. The first week of January I spent in Switzerland where I visited family members and friends. The other two times I spent some time in Allgau, especially in Garmisch-Partenkirchen and the area around.
I will soon be back in Allgau and also in Switzerland. But before returning, I have some important private appointments to follow. And for these appointments different city trips are waiting. The next two years my husband and I have to organize some important projects concerning our private life. It is still secret, but what I can already say is, that these projects aren’t public projects, they are absolutely private. By time I will write about the first news concerning my private projects. Also in February I want to cultivate quality time with my loves. That means, that I want to spend time together with the people I love to have around me. There is nothing better in life than giving and taking happiness. Sharing luck is much more satisfying than only taking from others.
In January I caught a bad cold and for many days I felt some kind of ill and not really healthy. It was annoying and I am so happy that now this cold has passed. But this wasn’t the only disharmony in January. After the Berlin Fashion Week many discussions concerning the fake blogger and influencer world started on many different blogs. I didn’t participate on the Berlin Fashion Week and in my page about a quick update I explained the reason why and what I did instead. I really wonder why only now after this year’s Berlin Fashion Week the discussions started. That this blogger and influencer world is a world full of fake, everyone of us knows for a long time. Of course, everything is getting crazier by time, but it is nothing new. In contrary, people who are not blogging always criticized that there is a big part of influencers and bloggers who are not authentic, who cheat and who splurge. And yes, I have to confess, that many critics for my opinion are justified. The only reason why everything becomes that crazy the last time is, that meanwhile many luxury brands give people a chance to collaborate, who could never pay this luxury by their own salary. Consequence of this change is, that people who now got the chance to collaborate with these luxury brands are getting too big for those britches and on the other side they loose their authenticity completely. Everyone now wants to be part of this luxury world and that is the reason why so many people cheat, splurge and can’t get enough. Not everyone is authentic in this world of luxury. The more people get, the more they want. Further on it is a big difference if someone earns a lot of money and spends it for luxury or someone only shows luxury like a display dummy and in fact doesn’t know how to handle it. There is a simple rule in life we all know very good: give someone power and he shows his true nature. And this is the main criticism and this criticism I totally understand. But I believe that by time everything harmonizes and all the bloggers and influencers who are authentic and who do a great work without cheating and splurging and all the negative things, will survive these crazy and overwhelming times. I see myself as a monitor who watches this big circus and who sips at his cup of coffee while living his own life. And therefore I see this topic chilled and I am some kind of relaxed.
Gossip Girl moment
In January I bought another pair of Cinderella shoes and this was my first Gossip Girl moment of this year. Meanwhile I had some other Gossip Girl moments but there was no time left by now to show the other one here in my diary. I try to recompense for that the following weeks. As I promised my readers in my New Year’s Eve page, I will show more about my private life. I have to confess, that I don’t show every single purchase or holiday I make, whether affordable or expensive. One reason is that sometimes I don’t have enough time to take photos and to write about everything. Another reason is, that I write about things that actually touch my heart and therefore there is no time and no place left in my diary for every trivial detail.
My February wish list
In January I got a new cell phone and now I need a new case to protect it. There are so many beautiful cases, it is very difficult for me to make a decision. Maybe I customize a cell phone case like I have already done. Or maybe I buy an already designed one.
Of course there are some additional products on my February wish list, but I am now tired to write a lot more. What I can add is, that I want to read and buy some new books and fashion magazines.
