In Life


001: Fit in two more photoshoots this week which I am really happy about!
002: Rang in the new year on the rooftop of a hostel in Berlin with a motley crew of awesome people watching all of the fireworks being let off in all of Berlin from the best view in the city, running around with sparklers, and booze. It literally felt like we were inside of an episode of “Skins” (The UK version, of course). Rolled in around 6 in the morning and have been spending a cozy weekend inside with the kitties and netflix ever since.

    • rae

      Thanks so much! So glad you found this post inspiring!

  • I love this idea! I think what I love most about it is probably the ‘In life’ and ‘The web’. I love every post that you’ve shared (especially the doggy pants – wth, how does one get the answer to that?).

    And I’ll be looking forward to the photoshoots as well (You look absolutely beautiful on that picture)
