Last weekend was, besides being absolutely full of appointments and schedules, a beautiful one – the weather was perfectly fine in its variety from hot to rainy… it was the perfect mixture of heat and water without the necessity of jumping into a bright pool full of bacteria and children’s pee.
While I was either playing Basketball with my dear K or shopping and figuratively burning my sister’s horrible dress (I swear I have never seen something as hideous as this dress on her and promise me, I made sure no one has to in the future – ever!) or sitting enjoying the sun and reading at the Danube with wonderful B on Friday and Saturday (after I have been at the office to work a little bit, of course… what would I be without work?!) I attended a wonderful picnic with beautiful, talented and fashion interested ladies who run their own beauty, fashion or lifestyle blogs (just like I do) and another guy with the same adjuncts (you may know him by now because I have mentioned him sometimes in my articles) – the two of us had to defend the male sex in a pool full of female eroticism and beauty… well two and a quarter of us adding beautiful baby boy Jake to my calculation.
As we sat and dined and looked as fashionable as no one else in the beautiful Burggarten in Vienna’s first district I came across a lot of thoughts and ideas and perceptions and mind-games… all the ladies haven’t just been an inspiration but a wonderful way to spend a perfect summer Sunday with.
Thoughts/Perceptions on a Summer Sunday:
1) I want a baby boy – yeah, shocking to those who know me up close and personal but playing with little Jacob opened my eyes. Despite all my previous doubts I believe that I would be a great father figure. Not only would my child win the first price on a baby fashion competition at every playground – it would be loved with all my heart and soul! (and no I do not support baby pageant competitions – these competitions are irresponsible from the parents, noxious for the children and only a catalyst for those parents’ that did not make it in the world of beauty and fame themselves… sorry but why blaming or torturing your child for your lack of talent?!)
2) a man ain’t nothing compared to a true friend – something every single should sign. Friendship is something that survives the hardest of times; that strengthens the heart, the mind and the soul. It is the one thing that builds you up when you are down – that gives you love at a constant rate without feeling the need to compromise, to playing pretend or to alter your personality in order to fit into some kind of commitment.
3) Vienna has its fashion moments – my dear, beloved, bold and beautiful blogger colleagues are the best proof that Vienna changes (slowly but yet discernible) into the right direction of dealing with media in a witty way; dressing in fashion that underlines the personality and sets a statement of ‘YES! I do care about the way I look, because I love fashion!’ and develops even further when it comes to young people taking over the business world and ruling it in their own pair of shoes – with their own bright personalities. As I look into the round of the picnic I have to realize – this is the elite and this is your, our, my future and it shines bright and beautifully!
After the picnic found its end for me I dedicated the rest of yesterday’s Sundays to my dear, dear, dear K and decided to hit the BBall for some time before heading to dinner to an Italian restaurant ordering the biggest Pizza I have ever seen… believe me – the plate was half the size of my Pizza Pollo!
In the end, all that is left to say is thanks to all for the wonderful weekend – the Sunny Summer Sunday that I completely enjoyed and that made me realize that relaxing has something good sometimes.
Here is a list of all the wonderful colleagues of mine. Visit their blogs and enjoy more pictures and insightful material on the picnic and a lot of other great substances.
