What about going out in your most comfortable knitted piece which almost feels like your
pajama? Oh well, that's what I just did the other day. Combining sporty socks with heels is
giving me life lately. Do you feel it? xx

Every strong picture is able to speak a thousand words. Some pictures yet tell us stories.
The story might be different to the eye of the beholder.
To me the story goes like this. There is a point in most of our lives when we stop worrying and just be.
For some of us the process takes longer, for others it seems that they are almost born that way.
Fearless. Adorning. Enlightening. Provocative.  That's what these pictures are telling me.
What are they telling you?

Wearing:    A special customized silk robe for geeksndfashion in a collaboration of
                   Victoria's Secret and Swarovski

2013 marks the 11th year that Swarovski is the exclusive crystal sponsor of the Victoria's Secret 
Fashion Show. To celebrate the dazzling partnership, Swarovski, together with Victoria's Secret, has incorporated a new 3D printing process to their creations. This has resulted in an incredible high-tech costume that was seen in the breathtaking Snow Angel section of the show. Designed by architect 
Bradley Rothenberg from world-leading 3D print company, Shapeways, the costume was made to precisely fit Lindsay Ellingson from a 3D scan of her form. Next, 3D computer printing technology was used to create the geometric filigree characteristics of the design's snowflake motif chick was encrusted with millions of illuminating Swarovski Crystals.

When I met Dru  my graphic designer in New York, he made me one of the greatest gifts in a while.
Something so thoughtful and personal that I had immediately teary eyes. He and his mom, (read
more below), made this beautiful bracelet for me with a statement that is following my path for years
now - "We are shaped and fashioned by what we love".

AQUABEET - Jewelry that speaks to you.

All aquabeet jewelry is handcrafted of sterling silver. Each piece is cut, hammered, drilled, stamped,
sanded, oxidized & polished.

Amy has been an artist as long as she can remember. Such as her incredible son Dru, who not only
became a friend of mine but is also a part of my team now.
Although she now makes jewelry & works with copper, she has worked in many different media.
As Amy Volchok would say, "Always remember... ART IS ESSENTIAL."

Winter is actually right here but for some reason it doesn't even bother as much as it used to
during all the years before. I just wrapped myself in some cozy layers. xx

This time I teamed up with Zeko, a young talented photographer based in New York.

I was wearing a quite simply look when it comes to the color combination, yet a very loud one
when you're considering the details and fabrics. I love to wrap myself  in white.
There will be a pretty exciting project very soon. Stay tuned. xx

I like to work with different creative individuals in order to create. It was my true pleasure to meet
Marcel Severino and to be able to work with him. He is not only extremely talented but also
sweet and giving. It's a gift to have those kind of people around me.

New York is the city where I am finding myself over and over again. You might have noticed it.
But my roots are based in Africa, Tanzania to be exact. Since I was born in Africa, the whole
culture and artwork inspires me in every single way. I am so grateful that my parents just gifted me
those traditional maasai necklaces which I simply adore. What do you think? xx

Black and White layering never fails. That's a typical look, I see myself in, for an every day stroll
through the city. Thanks dear weather god, for blessing us with such mild temperatures during December. xx
