Dumbo Arts Festival in Brooklyn

Since I was always a huge fan of art, you get to see nothing else but sculptures, paintings and other works of art today. What an amazing time Yasemin and I had at the DUMBO Arts Festival in Brooklyn!

J'adore Coney Island

The fun is here! Can you believe that these shots were taken in New York City? Well, I couldn't believe that the city can look like this! Yesterday I spent a wonderful fun day with Yasemin on Coney Island in Brooklyn and I couldn't believe my eyes... it looked just like a boardwalk in any Californian city! Thankfully, I'm very much into sunny California hence I love Coney Island! The tiny shops, the boardwalk with the beach, the amusement park - this place has its points. Have a look at the marvelous pictures we took on that day.

Everybody, just have a good Time!

Before my friend Lara left for Germany I had to take her to our favorite hot spot Tenjune. After relaxing at the luxury STK Steakhouse, we partied first at Tenjune and then went to 1Oak, check it out!

We will never forget

I can't really describe how emotional and touching this day was for me... Yesterday Yasemin and I went to Lower Manhattan to pay tribute to all the victims who died on 9-11. After visiting a photo exhibiton about this very special day at the International Center of Photography in Midtown, I could barely talk. I never would have thought that the pain people felt on that day would hit me so hardly. Since I wasn't in New York City on that day I always felt like it never concerned me personally - until yesterday. I was shocked about how empty and silent the city was. Never have I seen Manhattan like this! Yasemin and I went to Battery Park where they set up more than 2000 flags - one flag for one life. It was one of the most impressing things I've seen so far in the city - to actually see the amount of the innocent people who died was simply incredible. Seeing the 'Tribute in Light' was also a very moving moment - you just can't imagine two huge towers standing there in Lower Manhattan unless you've actually seen them. All in all it was a very hard, touching and sad day for me - but it was also very important for me because it helped me a lot to understand the feelings of the survivors, families who lost their members and all the New York citizens who experienced the pain on that day. I can't express the compassion I feel for all of you and how much I admire your power!

See the City come to Life

Heading to Times Square with Yasemin after the ultimate fashion week experience and first time witnessing a proposal! See, Paris is not the only romantic city!

Yes, I do!

In Sleep he sang to me, in Dreams he came

The musical 'Phantom of the Opera' was earth-shattering! Insanely awesome! I don't know how to describe it! I didn't wanna leave the theatre and I hope the phantom will marry me one day ;) I knew all the songs by heart from my parents and was crying all the time. The theatre and the costumes were also gorgeous! I never would have thought that my first Broadway musical would touch me so intensely. To say it with Christine's (the protagonist) words : 'And do I dream again? For now I find.'
