I'm a blogger now

Marc O’ Polo recently did a photo-shoot picturing gals as what they wanted to become when they were growing up. You know: princesses, actresses, the wife of Robbie Williams (my generation), or Harry Styles (today’s generation)... aka the usual girl stuff. I held an Oscar (the only accessory shiny enough to catch my attention) and they titled the whole piece of art “I'm a blogger now”.

Hm. Couldn’t help but wonder if that's actually an achievement. I mean everybody seems to have a blog these days, right? It’s so popular to write and share personal insights that it’s almost cool not to have a tumblr, wordpress or twitter account or own youtube channel. Plus forcing your boyfriend to take your picture in different outfits seems to me to be the new strain on relationships (*sigh*- I miss the good old "you didn’t put the cap on the toothpaste" debate).

But since it seems official now, I have a reason to run around with my laptop all the time (isn’t that soooo Carrie Bradshaw - aka totally outdated), pose randomly on the street (in incredible heels no doubt) and have my picture taken everywhere. And yes, these things really keep me busy! So what are you blogging about?

Had to promise BF to stop posting every day, as I neglected all other important things for a whole year. Totally get it, it's tough when your girlfriend is not only wearing high heels all the time, but also talking (probably even in her sleep), thinking about them 24|7 (aka answering all basic questions with shoe designers from A-Z, all meaning "am too busy, sorry!") and spending remaining time behind camera, laptop, or shoe boxes.

Am very aware that social and private life have suffered from "high-heeling", but luckily this is all going to change. Will have plenty of time from now on to not only make love to favorite shoes or pictures of shoes, but boyfriend himself as well. Might very well use all sets which I actually prepared for shoots: on the bed, on the floor, in a towel by the door, in the tub, in the car, up against the mini bar, in the pool, on a duvet and the abudantly set buffet, on a plane, on a horse and the balcony of course, in the park, on a chair, basically everywhere.

YES!!!!!!!!! It's such a good thing that I stopped blogging indeed.
And having said so: turns out am a little bit of a cheat. Damn it.

Of course going "cold turkey" is not my thing, so sneaked in monthly overview a day later than usual to be able to wish everybody a Happy New Year. Something light to read for the hangover today, I thought.

And what a light and easy month it was too. Loved inspiring a new generation to take pictures of heels now too (see nephew, *touched*), loved that for our Ladies Night everybody brings heels without asking, even loved taking my heels everywhere and the fact that no one around me finds it odd anymore when I build a set in houses that aren't my own, abuse bath tubs or interiors that don't belong to me, or just hand camera over and direct others to photograph my precious heels of the day. On that note, must once again thank BF for his never-ever-ending patience and endless support - although do have a sneaking suspicion that whenever I said *shoe* he actually thought (Haha, fair enough) *sssssssshew*.

No more though, it's for real now: Good-bye to blogging everday, I will miss you very much. *sob*sob*. Good-bye lovely readers too, you have been a fabulous audience (and please: buy my book whenever it will be published). What am I going to be doing the next months? No idea at all. Isn't the journey more important than the destination anyway? Having said so: Enjoy the ride (in high heels of course).

Oh, and just in case you ever wondered: my boyfriend's name is Auke.

Another month has come to an end, and if the year weren't over in 31 days, I would probably be glad. Am sure that by now, I'm dedicating more time a day to blogging, than Madonna does to her daily workout (believe me: that's a lot, just imagine my figure if I was doing that!). Without having worked out a single minute *sigh*, I can tell this was one of the most intense months ever though. Perhaps because I wanted to do especially well, and combine private life and partying and travelling (very Madonna-ish indeed...).

If at the beginning of the year I was a little puzzled that friends still asked how I was doing (after all, they could easily have read about it, right?), am now finding myself in the situation that ALL OF THEM read it, and refer to my complaints of not hearing from them with: "Hello, read your blog, I know what you've been up to". (OK... that's actually pretty cool). It was also one hell of a social month, and have to thank not only my friends for supporting me, but also the newspapers Standard and Tiroler Tageszeitung for putting my interviews out there for the public. Plus, adding two of my favorite Shoetation heels to today's picture goes without saying as I met the most lovely shoe-shop owner of Vienna just this month. (You can still get the cuties here!)

Thank all of you out there for the second to last month on my diary blog. It's been a real blast.

P.S.: Oh, and thank's to my friend Ossi for the fun shoot, picturing me and my favorite car which I could never afford due to heel-addiction.

I'm a Lady Now!

I'm a Lady Now!

Ladies, I did it. When I hit the keys on the first of January this year to write my first blog entry, I had 366 days ahead of me (aka a HUGE blank piece of paper if you like) and no idea where the journey would lead me. My heel closet was a beloved mess, my babies all eagerly waiting to be featured and little did I know how to embed photographing and writing in my everyday routine. Realizing that I just hit the mark of writing my 300th post in a row (absolutely a reason to celebrate as this year only counts 366 days, so no more "round" numbers to cheer on): there couldn't be a better moment to pamper my feet with yet another special pair of heels. The myth, the legend, the ultimate treat: the one and only red sole there is: Louboutins.

So after 300 days (closet and blogging super strictly organized) and with my new purchase now officially consider myself a "heel" grown-up.There are certainly things you can't do anymore while wearing Loubies, right? Such as sitting any other way than with your legs neatly folded, fooling around with stupid toys for blog entry, or shaking that bottle of champagne before opening (and drinking straight out of it...): no, no! I'm a lady now! Jichaaaaaaaaaaaaaa! Now where's my glass?

For someone who claims not to be übersporty, I'd say this past month pretty much proved that I'm not too bad after all.
Playing football until exhausted with nephews (5 minutes are 5 minutes, right)? Check. Climbing an apple tree (something I hadn't done in a long LONG time, certainly not in glittery shoes)? Check. Pretending to be a tennis pro? Check! Ready to do the Olympics next.
Would certainly win heptathlon: hand me over the Louboutins!

But other than sweating for the shoot everyday, it was quite an emotional month as well. Saw my oldest friend (very precious as we only see each other once a year) and believe to have met my youngest when I experienced the first of a "fan meeting" (this will not be the last time Moulsari, I had such a blast!). From Austria (big thanks to Shoetation!), Germany, Italy (the best vacation crew ever) and Amsterdam: was spoiled with helping hands and enthusiasm when it came to my blog. Thank you all, it's rather overwhelming and am tempted to believe it's "heel" the world, rather than "heal". Well, one bad word pun after 9 months is ok, isn't it?

Which reminds me. Only three months to go with my project, so spread the word and let your friends know: there are exciting things coming up!
Stay tuned in and about heels. Big love and thanks to you all!
