This weekend i got the unexpected opportunity to take part in a blogger workshop here in Berlin.
It's been really hot in the city lately, still is, so the idea of spending my Saturday and Sunday in an even hotter classroom when i could be at the lake with my friends, had me question my decision to say yes, but i'm really glad i went.
The workshop was really informative and inspiring, and i hope it provided the kick in the ass i've been needing to move forward with the Untitled Blog.
See, i've felt for a long time that this whole blog needed a makeover. Like, a severe one, not just a new header like i normally do when i need change!
Maybe a whole new theme, a whole new subject, who knows?
But something needs to happen, and for the first time in a long time i actually feel inspired to do something about it.
The blog might end up being less about me, and more lifestyle-ish.
I might want people to do guest posts, i might do sections with different topics, i don't know yet, but i'm always interested in hearing what you guys have to say, so if there's something you'd like to see more of on the blog (besides regular posting, lol), please let me know in the comments!
One of the things we talked about a lot at the workshop, was making money from your blog, something i've personally never been very good at.
I've never had ads, and i've never done any sponsored content, even though i've had offers in the past.
But things change, and that topic couldn't have come up at a better time for me.
You see, i was recently contacted by a company that represents Huawei, asking me if i'd like to try out this new phone, that supposedly had a great camera.
And guys, this time i said yes. Because, well, free phone!
So this post is kinda sponsored, i guess?*
Or, at least it's full of photos from the Huawei Ascend P7, which, by the way, does indeed have a very nice camera, as you can see.
I used VSCO Cam to edit all the photos, as i usually do with my iPhone photos as well, and i think they have a nice analog feel to them.
However, VSCO ran pretty slow on New Phone, which i found a little frustrating, but i am an extremely impatient person when it comes to technology, so maybe it's just me!
Now, if anyone out there would like to give me a new laptop to replace the purple dinosaur i'm so desperately trying to keep alive, i am apparently open to accepting bribes.
But not really.
*whispers* call me, apple....
I made a new work space in my wardrobe, perfect for drawing and studying Japanese
My favorite Dino Baby and his lovely wife came to visit recently, and we went to eat at Yam Yam, which is the spot in Berlin for kick ass Mandu and other Korean delicacies
Mandu, rice, kimchi and gim (which is not pictured cause they always forget to bring it the first time around!)
My roommate Luke took this picture of the dogs being fucking adorable the other night
I've been encouraging my friends to try out New Phone when they feel like taking pictures, so here's Luke and Wendy testing the front camera at this kind of horrible breakfast spot we tried out a few weeks ago (the fat, rich guy smoking a cigar right next to us didn't exactly elevate the dining experience!)
My girls at Mi Onda
The dudes and the dogs
Roamers in Neukölln is one of my favorite places in Berlin at the moment, cause they have great interior, good coffee, and killer avocado on toast... so basically all my favorite things!
And one time, they also had parrots parked outside... oh, Berlin...
Oh, and New Phone has a built in beauty filter... whether it works or not is debatable, i guess!
