Summer Inspiration

Today's post is all about inspiration! What comes to your mind when you hear the word summer?
Well, I'm thinking of colors, the ocean, sun, beaches, ice cream and not to forget - glamour!
So here are some of my favorite summer pics that I found on various tumblr blogs or via Google. I usually don't post pictures of other blogs or people, just because I love taking the photos for my blog myself. So today's post is a special one ;-) I adore getting inspired by art, other photographers and tumblr blogs or instagram accounts, especially because I'm a huge fan of photography who's always on the look for new poses, ideas and outfits!
So what are my summer plans? Like I said in one of my last posts, I'm heading to Mallorca next week woohoo! Plus, surprise... I'm going back to New York City! August it is, Big Apple here I come!
This is gonna be an unforgettable summer! 

All pics via various tumblr blogs and Google.

Feeling urban

Hey hey fellas, hope you're all doing well! I just wrote my second exam, what a relief! Believe me, IT is tough, learning HTML codes and CSS stylesheets for website design is not the funnest thing to do in your free time. One more exam and another project to go and soon the second semester is over! I can't believe it's July - where did this year's first 6 months go?
Just two more weeks and I'll be back on my beloved island Mallorca. But first I'm heading home, I haven't seen my parents in a while so I'm excited to celebrate the end of my second term with my family before taking a vaca. I'm originally from a small town located between Münster and Dortmund and moved to the north of Germany to study in Kiel, which is like 4 hours away from where my fam lives.
Since I live so close to the fabulous city of Hamburg now, I'm checking it out once in a while to explore the metropolis a little. During one of my trips I found this awesome place called "Gängeviertel" - streetart, graffitis, sculptures - totally my thing! I can get completely lost in these kind of places and spend hours there!
Maybe you remember the fabulous 5Pointz in Queens, New York, one of the most famous graffiti meccas. They shut it down last year and whitewashed the graffitis, pure cruelty! I'm still recovering from these news. Back then, when I visited 5Pointz in 2013 I spent hours there taking photos of all the incredibly creative graffitis, you can check it out here!
There's nothing like 5Pointz but this cool place in Hamburg is getting there! You can also find loads of unique graffitis in the "Schanzenviertel", apparently one of Hamburg's hipster hoods, where I took some cool photos as well.
Enjoy the pics ;-)

Under covers...

Hey my lovely readers and followers! Are you all having a wonderfully relaxing weekend so far?
I'm currently fighting against my inner urge to escape to Mallorca again, it's been over 6 weeks now that I came back to Germany and I already feel restless and unsatisfied. I can't really identify what it is, my constant wanderlust, the university stress or Germany itself... I'm not quite sure. Fact is that I can't wait to get out of here! Anyway, the flight is booked, July 21st it is!
In the meantime I'm spending hours every day on studying and also try to push in one or two hours once in a while to update my blog. So here we go!
Today you get to see some of my favorite shots by the outstanding Jens Henkenius. "Henk" and I had a wonderful shooting a couple weeks ago and I was more than satisfied with the outcome! I used to model before I moved to New York City in 2010 and really enjoyed this job. After NYC I was pretty occupied all the time that I've never quite gotten back to modeling. However, I'm really into it and will try to start again. You can imagine I was super happy with my first shooting after three years! The photos came out so sensual, light and natural but also glamorous that I just had to share a few with you!

Print it!

Hello there! Hope you're all having a good week so far. Today is my first free day, the university building's not gonna see me today!
I finished one of my projects yesterday, my first own magazine, and I'm super proud! Now it's time to start studying at home for my upcoming exams.
I still found some time for a photo shoot with my sister though. We're both totally into print shirts lately! H&M has got some great ones in stores right now, like this New York City tee I'm wearing - a great mix of sporty touch and girly floral print. My sis is absolutely in love with her new hamburger tee, those shirts make a great street style look!
You will soon get to see some pics of my first modeling job after three model-free years (I was too busy exploring NYC and Spain, haha), so stay tuned!
For now, enjoy these shots. I'm off to a meeting with my desk - HTML encoding is calling! Gosh, how much I love studying!
