Always remember

Last week my friend Kimmy and I visited the 9/11 Memorial in Lower Manhattan - I always wanted to see this tribute to the past but never made it there. Thankfully I always get to see the 'tourist stuff' when I have friends coming over who don't live in NYC.
The memorial was beautiful - I guess the rainy weather on that day emphasized the mood - the twin memorial pools honoring the lives of those who were lost were gorgeously illuminated and the view of the Freedom Tower was just breathtaking. A successfully constructed memorial to honor all those who deserve just the best monument!

The Hooters Experience

Honestly, lunching at a fast food restaurant is probably not the best idea if you plan on getting in shape in order to look as hot as a Victoria's Secret bombshell. Nevertheless I just had to take my best friend Kim to Hooters in Manhattan - just because I always wanted to see the super hot waitresses - the Hooter Girls - with my own eyes. The place itself was pretty comfy, the food was good as well - what I missed was watching the girls in the orange nylon shorts dancing for us because I've seen it so many times on TV before. Well, never mind, our waitress was more than friendly and nice to look at anyway, enjoy!

So don't you ever go back!

Last Tuesday my best friend Kim from Germany arrived, and I can't tell you how amazing it is to be with her again! The last time I've seen her was in September 2011, too long ago - so she decided to come back to NYC and celebrate her birthday with us in Manhattan!
Kimmy, I don't know how to express how much I missed you and how glad I am that you're here... with me and for me, now and forever - in times of happiness and sorrow. I love you! Happy Birthday!

Go Knicks!

My first sports game in the US and what a thrilling one! Thanks a lot to my amazing sister who gave me the ticket for the New York Knicks game in Madison Square Garden for Christmas.  So two weeks ago we went to see all the famous players, including Carmelo Anthony, in the garden and they kept me captivated until the last minute - within the last 10 seconds the Knicks made the game, woohoo!

Now look at this score!

The Versatile Blogger Award and something about me...

Thank you very much to two of my lovely fellow bloggers - Elvira from threadsoftrend and Gogo Garantzioti from fashionlumiere for honoring my work on this blog with the 'Versatile Blogger Award'. I'm so happy to see that you like my posts and enjoy my blog! One's gotta make a difference, right? ;-)
Since I was now awarded with the 'Versatile Blogger Award' twice already, I think it's time to follow the rules that come with it - share seven random facts about myself with my readers and award 15 other bloggers whose blogs I love to read.

Let's get it started:
1. My favorite animals are meerkats (I noticed that nobody in the USA knows what a meerkat is!?) and killer whales because they are just beautiful. By the way... I hate the fact that people actually think that those whales are happy living in captivity, duh?!


2. I faint when I hurt myself very badly by accident or when the doctor tries to take a blood sample.

3. I speak English, German and French fluently and a bit of Russian. I also have a certificate in Latin.

4. As a kid I wanted to become either a veterinarian (yes, a doctor for animals) or a pathologist - I dispelled both ideas since I can't stand the sight of blood.

5. I never planned on living in New York City, my favorite city was always the beautiful 'City of Love' - Paris, I actually wanted to move there! BUT moving to NYC was the best thing I have ever done in my life!

6. One of the things I always wanted to do once in my life was to see a burlesque performance by Dita Von Teese - another one was seeing the Victoria's Secret Fashion Show - I fulfilled that wish!

7. I don't expect anything from life - I don't need to be rich, have an amazing husband or beautiful kids, carrying hundreds of Louis Vuitton and Gucci purses with me. I'm a very happy person and try to make the best of any situation in my life!

Unfortunately, I don't really have that much time to read a lot of blogs on a daily basis - I gotta get out to experience new fantastic things to write about, right? The ones I really love are listed on the side of my blog, check them out if you want. Right now I'm sorry to say that I don't have the time to go through all the blogs I like. Hope you understand ;)

Love always and thank you very much for the award!
