In between walls of concrete, people and coffee, I've found home in New York City. It's been a month and 12 days and counting and I can see myself living on and on and on here. The speed gets to me though. I feel guilty just taking time out to watch Tarzan :( Anywho, no time for sad emoticons. NYC photodiary coming up next!

A little hashtag throwback from Vienna. I collaborated with incredigurl Nat who illustrated over these photos my sister took. Keywords: Strangle, tentacles, creepy Asian. IRL I would not be wearing this out right now. New York is hot like a sauna on crack. Or a bit too much body oil.

Life takes on unexpected turns here in New York. It's a non-stop wave motion that crashes and refreshes and cleanses and makes you uncontrollably smile. A smile that shows all your teeth; nice and wide and Cameron-Diaz-like, just how your dentist likes it. You're crossing paths with people who you met once in Beijing. You're having a picnic with your best friend visiting from Montreal in Union Square park. You're going to see incredible live shows with a girl that has the life spirit of Carrie Bradshaw. And you're becoming sisters with the talented photographer you're living with (who happened to shoot these images) because you both have exceptional granny tendencies.

These next two months will be busy. I'm launching a couple of new projects - including my own web series called VICTOURIST ;) - and also working on KNEON with our incredible team here. Next post will be all about our office in the East Village.

BROOKLYN WEEKENDS

While the East Village has become home, Brooklyn (especially Greenpoint and Williamsburg) has become the chill point for me. This weekend, I had my first rooftop party in Brooklyn that Gioia invited me to. Beers, pizza, tunes, lots of sun and good vibes. I also had my first vespa ride (!) and definitely exceeded my squeal allowance.

I'm wearing: literally everything H&M

I'm wearing Stefanel dress, Vagabond shoes, H&M bag and Persol sunglasses.

Sorry for going AWOL. Finally plucking up the digital-confidence to start a Facebook page and then just dumping it unceremoniously for a week seems a beechy thing to do. But I've been settling in! In New York! I'm loving this city. It reminds me a lot of Beijing: the subway is jungle of unexplored adventures, the streets are dominated by people strutting off determinedly towards their goal (even if it is their second brunch of the day), and no one really gives a shit what others think of them. It's Grand Sass-Central Station up in here.

I'm currently back in Vienna for one more day. Then off to New York for a good two months. This post introduces my first collaboration with GIF-master Hong Meow. She also runs a dope online store called Inu Inu that Tumblr princesses would divorce their Prince Charmings for.

The incredible BETHANY GRACE shot me with a bang a couple months ago at the Botanical Gardens in Edinburgh. She also runs SYN Magazine and is a complete babe. Definitely check out her work, she's a talented kid to keep your eyes on.

FINALLY SPRING

Currently loving the warmer weather. No more rain! No more wind! Also I'm getting ready to move to New York soon, and to accompany these changes, I've revamped the layout and will get some more tweaks with the link colors and header. Hope you're all enjoying this beautiful day!

I'm wearing: LAZY OAF top, H&M skirt and sneakers, my MOM's coat, and MICHAEL KORS watch.

Really stoked to get back to basics with the next issue of KNEON. We're channeling more clean-cut shapes, classic colors and a lot of skin.
