In life

This week has been a bit of a cheeky one, although I have needed really a bit of a slow week. I know last week was relatively quite as well, but I feel like this week was really spent re-charging my emotional battery by doing fulfilling things with people I want to spend time with. To be fair, I did still do a fair amount of work and attend a few events and meetings, which included visiting H&M’s Christmas House as well as attend Kunst in Brief’s launch party, popping over to Victoria met Albert to take some photos of their winter and Christmas goodies and discuss future and ongoing projects, and meeting with Reka of Local’s Lore. It was just less than what is standard for what I would define as a “productive work week” for myself. Still, I am feeling refreshed and ready to face the next week with open arms.

But the big news is that after a ton of stress from dpd, I finally received my package, which included this incredible speaker from Marshall. This item, along with the other items are part of a collaboration which is the exciting news I was banging on about in my last weekend reads. I can’t give away all the details yet, but you will be made aware of it very soon!

Today is all about friendsgiving as well, which I am celebrating with some of my favorite people in my home so be sure to tune into my instagram story via @lovefromberlin to keep up with all the fun!

Ended + Upcoming Giveaways

Next week, I will be posting about LFB’s giveaways in the month of December so make sure to be on the lookout!

On the web

Love from Berlin's favorite links from around the web

001: Ever wonder what would happen if an airliner went outside the stratosphere?
002: Loving the idea of making the most of Thanksgiving left-overs, like creating stuffing waffles.
003: Thrillist re-wrote tourism slogans for all 50 states, and they are brutal.
004: Stay away from the hot pools at Yellowstone National Park, or you’ll end up like this man.
005: strange but true?
006: In a world where the Press is something no longer to be trusted so easily, this list of fake news sites is one step closer to restoring integrity in a field with very little.
007: After viewing these incredilbe photos of Nusa Penida Island, I really want to visit!
008: Now that the holidays are coming up, it’s time to start thinking about gift giving.
009: I am absolutely mad about this Moroccan and aubergine chickpea stew.

Free People – Dream Girl

(video of the week)

I am always so impressed with the short films that Free People produce. They are like little mini indie short films, and the mood is always spot-on. On the heels of beginning Black Mirror, this particular short film about technology and love really struck a chord with me. Be on the look out for Part 2 if this story captures your interest.
