Whenever we reach NYE the lyrics by Ron Pope's Heartfelt Lies pop up in my mind 'Now years seem to pass as we blink our eyes', and how true that always proves to be. Year for year. I mean, I feel like it was only yesterday that me and my best friend were in Berlin, eating and drinking and enjoying the fireworks. And here we are again, same city, same day endling another year, spent with family and friends. Another year of travelling, blogging, meeting different people, whether in London, Paris or Berlin. I feel so blessed to have come know such wonderful individuals in the Fashion industry. 365 have passed again and all of us are awaiting 2014 with great expectations. Only a few of my personal highights of 2013 were working with KARIOKA Sunshine Couture in Berlin, taking on an editor role at Legatto Lifestyle Magazine, meeting some favourite Bloggers/Photographers such a Dogi, Lois, Morgane, Vani, Ricarda, Toni, Athina and many more. Another very personal and fun highlight actually not too long ago was spending a week at the Lux Eleven in Berlin for work and some fun of course. I enjoyed and was indeed honored to take part in collaborations with Zalando Germany and UK, Hello Perry, Wimbledon x Lavazza UK. I spent a month in Uganda, my homecountry and had an amzing holiday. I had time to spend a month in Berlin during summer again and always loved returning to London, my home away from home. I was featured in different magazines inter alia Grazia Germany, Glamour. Elle, Refinery29 and Style.de. I attended several Fashion Weeks again and LCM for the first time with all its craziness. And apart from the hectic, super early mornings and late nights, I must admit it is what I love to do most. I was also pleased to start my work with RewardStyle as a blogger and work with Stylight who launched their UK site this year.
What I look forward to in 2014: The first ever Stylight Fashion Blogger Awards in Berlin, hosted by Raul Richter and the ever so beautiful blogger extraordinaire Chiara Ferragni, whom I can't wait to meet! Nominees also include some of my favourite bloggers Angelica Blick, Nehin Mirsalehi, Dulceida, Kenza Zouiten and many more. I can not wait for this night to be here (I still need to find the perfect dress though *cough* *cough*).
I am also super excited for the Blogger Bazaar in Berlin, which I have been asked to be part of. Along with 4 other very well known German Bloggers, I will be selling some of my beloved pieces to lucky girls out there. So if you happen to be in Berlin next month, keep an eye out on my Blog as I will be sharing more information on it soon.
I will also do my best to blog much more next year! Minnie Knows will be treated to a new layout so be excited for that.I am really looking forward to spend much more time on the blog, since I am submitting my final Uni work in a week and will be free as a bird after that. Well, actually not quite but I will have more time on my hands for creative work as I won't be living in the Uni library anymore :D
And last but not least, I am more than anything else anticipating my two months in New York City next year. I will be interning at a PR agency and attend Fashion Week in New York for the very first time! I CAN NOT WAIT you guys. It's going to be the craziest two months of my life, I am sure.
So many things to come that's for sure. To a wonderful New Year and thanks to all you lovely readers who appreciate my blog! You guys keep me going! Your comments and hits on my blog and other social media channels make me happy and I always realise it is worth it. I enjoy styling outfits and sharing my love for fashion with you and I hope you will continue to enjoy Minnie Knows even more in 2014.
See you next year, literally!
