About Me

Sorry, I didn't update in a while... All the following is still kind of valid, but in May 2014 I received a little bundle of joy that keeps me very busy these days :D


I don’t know where I’m going but I want to be there.


It's nice to be important, but it's more important to be really really nice... :)

I smile a lot and really like to laugh :)

I am a handbag/purse addict and I really love to go to the cinema :)
I am into all kinds of art and like to visit rather cool than boring museums!
I collect everything that may inspire me – and this really could be anything ;) and while travelling I enjoy trying all different kinds of new and surprising local food...
I love to throw parties and go out with friends.

Lets find out what else :)


Enjoy the little things in life, for someday you will realize they were the big things!

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Moved to Istanbul :)
Taking the ferry to work... Was a great experience every day :)

Hiking in Grand Canyon made me experience my limits, but was absolutely great :)

EXIT Festival 2011 in Serbia was a wow-experience... I came alone and left with so many wonderful memories... met so many nice and crazy people

on a 30 hours train ride I was surprised by the hospitality of the turkish conductor who even stopped the train for me to get to the right spot :)

I hiked 5 days with a helium-balloon-dog named Fluffy which was sooo much fun! ;)

Teach, Learn, Share

I love to sew and do handcrafts :)
We can do DIY projects together and exchange new techniques!

I can show you some photoshop tricks :)

And now I got some baby experience that I would love to share with other moms :D
