Il dolce far niente. This is what I usually connect with spending time in Italy. A wonderful countryside, great food, easy-going and open-minded people. The list how to describe this country is long. In my case, it’s not about holiday this time but quite the contrary. We all know the feeling of looking for a new adventure. Routine and kind of a guarantee are great and priceless, but we’re all arriving at a point where we feel like making a further step into the chosen direction.
Right at the moment, you can see many quotes and New Year’s resolutions wherever you may look at. People are talking about their personal resolutions – even about the same or similar ones every year. But why?
Every year around the Christmas time I am trying to resist all these delicious temptations. Without any success. I mean there are literally everywhere possibilities to eat cookies, chocolate, gingerbread, chestnuts, waffles and so many more tasty things. And I somehow just have to follow this smell of delicious Christmas sins in the air.
But snow seems to arrive even later than last year. We’ve actually planned to shoot these photos in Davos or similar locations, but there was just no snow in this typical winter destinations. The weather forecast for Christmas looks like we’re getting a green holiday – again.
As smart as you or even smarter than you? The answer doesn’t really matter anyway. The trend seems to stay for a while. And it’s not only a tech trend anymore. It seems that the fashion tech trend has arrived a while ago. I can’t even count the brands, which are continuing the trend and try to put some new innovations in their own wearable. On the one hand we’ve got the tech giants like Apple, Pebble, Samsung, Sony, which are already focusing on fashion as well.
We should follow that motivational sentence not only before the summer season but also during the whole year – with some exceptions like Christmas, Easter, birthdays, holidays or cheat days for sure. With this in mind, we can do better - physically and mentally. There’s only one problem. It won’t come naturally.
Everybody likes… Chocolate! Lindt is looking for a new brand ambassador and I’ve had the idea to show the two kinds of chocolate lovers. There are ones they like it cool & crispy and other ones prefer it tender melting.
The year is slightly coming to an end. It’s that time of the year when it gets darker earlier and colder more often. It’s almost Christmas time. Although I always try to avoid this pre-Christmas thing in that early state I have to admit that I love this Christmas spirit in the end.
I’m not having that many free days the past few weeks. I even forget to sleep the regular hours just because I’m active and productive in the evenings, even after a tough and long day on set or traveling. So when I’ve got a free day or some hours I just need to reload my energy. Sleeping a bit longer in the morning, going for a walk at the lake, doing some sports (not in the usual rush), watching some of my favorit TV soaps, cooking or just reading and listening to some relaxing music. Quite normal acitivies as many of you do, I guess.
Well... Sport is a main part of my daily routine. You all know that. However, the whole topic is not only job-related – I really love it. Gym might be my priority as it is efficient and there’s no need to have a look at the weather conditions or other aspects. But beside that, I like a good mixture between lifting weights and endurance sports. This is why I do running on a regular basis as well as tennis or squash.
