Berlin in Style

IMG_3176

A dear friend of mine had a birthday on the 12th of May which, of course, turned out to be a lovely weekend getaway for us.  In 3 days we managed to relax, socialize, have fun and come back to London more tired than we left 🙂

We took the first flight in the morning, all excited with 3 hours sleep since we only find the time to pack our bags right before we leave. And because we never cheat on our style (catching flights by pure luck), Beyazit decided that it’s a smart idea to drive the car without Google maps (apparently he knew the way by heart) and of course we ended up getting lost and driving half an hour more. But positive thinking brings positive outcome so we kept our spirits up.

Till we reached the gate, we’d already bought Mahiki rum with coconut (we are so weak when it comes to rum) and we were ready to celebrate my friend’s birthday.

 It was a warm sunny Friday in Berlin and we weren’t in a hurry at all. We had our coffee near Frankfurter Allee station, then left our bags in the hotel and discovered this beautiful African Art Market called YAAM. It offered everything we needed – good vibes, reggae music, African and Caribbean food, river view and sun chairs 🙂

Saturday was hectic! We woke up fairly early so we could enjoy a brunch over the canal at Ankerklause.  We both ordered Bauern breakfast, which was delightful! By the time we went to my friend’s home party, it was 13:00 o’clock and everybody was already celebrating so we had to catch up real quick 🙂

I believe that we attract people similar to us, we choose our friends and we surround ourselves with people who are like us. Excuse my lyrical deviation 🙂 all I wanted to share is that at the party I only knew my friend, however, all of his friends made me and Beyazit feel so comfortable and sincerely enjoy the day. Some played piano, some sang songs. My friend is an oper singer so he made a little show for all of us. And I was sitting there just feeling grateful for having known people like him and collecting so many memories.

It’s never the final destination; it’s always the road and the people on it.

Later we went to Victoria park, had a picnic and a good laugh, played badminton, and before we knew, it was already dark. Obviously, we weren’t ready to finish the day so we thought a dinner in a Vietnamese restaurant is quite a good idea. But one thing leads to another, and me and Beyazit found ourselves in Berghain. I had only heard about it and I heard many different stories, however, I must say that it is an experience – a completely different world. The music was so good that we danced until the morning.

We went back to our hotel, slept for few hours and since it was a rainy Sunday we decided to make the most out of it. When you are in Germany and you want to relax, the best option is to visit a SPA Center. We stayed in Vabali Spa till midnight. It was a much needed rest for our minds and bodies and the perfect ending to our short trip to Berlin.

We are definitely coming soon!

Pre-birthday Emotional Roller Coaster

IMG_0252

My birthday is knocking at the door which leaves me in a complete emotional confusion. My pre-birthday anxiety started too early because I still have plenty of time till 18th of March. Yet, here I am, drowning in my own thoughts.

I couldn’t help myself but ask why I am so sensitive about turning 30. Every article that I read keeps on promoting: “30s are the new 20s”. Yes, maybe mentally wise.

If I compare where in life my mum was at my age, I can certainly say that I am running behind her trying to catch up… but not really. She already had me when she was 23 years old, by age of 30 she was in the beginning of her business which later on paid off in various ways. She bought a flat where we lived together and was still able to travel quite a lot and please have in mind that in those years Bulgarian citizens needed visa to do so.

On the other hand, I have dedicated my 20s to find myself. A decade of personal growth, mistakes, a constant searching and learning. It’s funny how I always thought that by age of 28 I’ll be married with a kid, having my own business and traveling around the world. The reality that I have chosen, however, is a bit different. For me finding the right person mattered the most so I wouldn’t settle for anybody but that one special man who my soul recognizes. Traveling was always part of my life but when it comes to career dedication, I feel like I found my focus just lately.

Life never turns out the way you expect. And that’s the beauty of the unknown. I am grateful for my blessings and I still have dreams that I work for and hopefully they will all happen soon. Instead of writing disastrous scripts in my mind, I should be more accepting of myself. In the end, I chose my road by myself and I walked on it through good and bad.

Blond Flashbacks

img_9730

Being a brunette all of my life was fun but you know what people say: “Blondes Have More Fun”. So there I found myself going through all these 50 shades of blond until I reached that platinum look… which later on has caused me so many headaches, but I’ll leave that story for another post.

That edgy look of Madonna in the 90s inspired so many Londoners this summer. Streets were full with guys and girls embracing that white hair and thick dark eyebrows. Finally – my time has come, at least that’s how I felt so I put myself together, grabbed that bleach and for the next 6 months BLEACH was my best friend.

Oh, and I don’t know about Madonna, but my black hair went through black and white highlights->orange->honey gold->ginger->yellow->white phase. At certain point I thought I could become a rainbow if I tried harder but with all of my honesty it was a great experience as every month I kept on surprising myself with a new hair tone. Funnily enough, I think Beyazit enjoyed it even more as he had a brand new looking girlfriend every other month. Which man doesn’t like that 🙂
