2013 Blog Retrospect

Likely to what I said about 2012 this past year was super exciting, full of good memories, travel experiences and cool new projects. Let’s look back together on what happened in 2013. I can’t wait to see what 2014 will bring us.


2012 started kinda bittersweet for me as I had the best time and probably best new years ever with my sister in Lisbon (that’s when I fell in love with the city, just like she already did) but also was single again after 3 years when I was back home. You can find our Lisbon diaries here and here. Fahion week in Berlin was a good distraction though and that’s also when I met Jasmin aka Madametamtam for the very first time – felt like we knew each other for ages! ♥ In the meantime Desi enjoyed the last weeks of her semester abroad in Portugal.


As Desi was not able to join me to San Francisco last year she got invited to the Adidas NEO Runway with Selena Gomez – in New York! How cool is that?! I was super excited for her and she definitely had a great trip.


In March Desi was on a trip to Lisbon again. That’s also when she created toe probably most beautiful post ever: Patterns of Portugal. In the meantime I dyed my hair – hello ombré hair!


That month some really good stores opened their doors in Berlin: & other stories and Monki for example. I also entered the O’Neill x Fahsiolista contest – and I won! As a prize I will join the brand on a photo shoot in a exotic location in May this year. It may be Hawaii, Santa Cruz or Brasilien, it is not decided yet but I surely can’t wait! Desi got a visit from Kaya, her friend and former room mate in Lisbon and I did my first run of the year.


In May we took each others favorite outfit pictures of the year. Love Desi in that photo, with her bike and her boyfriend jeans, so cool and casual. And Desi picked this jumping photo as her favorite. I treated myself with a pair of Prada sunglasses and new camera equiptment – softboxes! We got invoted to go to the Duftstars Awards 2013 with Point-Rouge (post 1 & post 2), Desi took amazing pictures for the launch of Yves Saint Laurent’s Baby Doll collection and finally the sun came out – we love warm weather!


In June I was at a very beautiful event of Mint & Berry where I met lovely and also gorgeous looking Magdalena from HoardsOfTrends. We had some other cool store openings such as Pull & Bear (took the picture of me and my dear friend Nadine there) and Forever 21, I enjoyed the summer and good ice cream and Hokey Pokey. Desi was in Lisbon (again!) and back in Berlin she joined me at the Beautybloggercafe where she took that fun picture with lovely Anna from Bildhübsch.


In July it was time Fashion Week and some really cool events. I also attended the Launch of the Selena Gomez for Adidas NEO collection where me, Lois and Anni took that fun picture with her which ended up all over Twitter :D Kinda cool. Downside of this time of the year are the exams – lot of studying to do! But we still had time to celebrate our 23th brithday :)


In the summer we both couldn’t resist not to spend it in Lisbon. Again, we went to beautiful places. See for yourself in our instagram diaries. After that Desi visited her friends in Barcelona and Krakow and Warsaw.


September wasn’t less exciting as I had a nice little trip to London with Nadine and back home Jasmin stayed with us for almost two months for her internship in Berlin – it was as we had another sister! I also got the chance to gibe proof of my photography skills and shot a feature for the 9th issue of the sisterMAG magazine. This was also the month when I finally decided to give a Youtube try and uploaded my very first video on our channel teetharejadecom.


In october we went to a Halloween party – it was pretty wicked I must admit, our costumes were dope! I also remember out day trip to Hamburg for the Hoss Intropia show room and my overnight at Talisa’s and our lovely brunch the next day.


In November I was at a very exciting Breuninger event in Düsseldorf  where I met old blog friends and also blogger starlet Kristina Bazan from Kayture. Then I went to Hamburg to see Tom Odell live in concert – it was amazing! And at the end of the month we both worked with sisterMAG again, but this time to model for their beauty feature!


From one busy month to another. In December I first travelled to Düsseldorf (and the Orcan Xavier was one pain in the ass, I can tell you) to shoot a video for Douglas. You can watch the final result and my look for New Years Eve here. After that we and some friends flew to Nürnberg and spend some lovely days with Adidas, Christkindlesmarkt, a good dinner and sauna inlcuded. And of course there was Christmas!

So that was our 2013. How was your’s? What were your highlights?
With that we wish you a very happy new year! ♥
