Best-Of 2014 - Everything is Possible

2014 is almost over - time for the annual year round-up. CRAZY how this year went.  Started of with a huge maybe once-in-a-lifetime bang, brought a few small travels with it, a new life in my very own flat, fulfilled a dream I didn't know about before, I think even more than one. I really lived my dream to the fullest that I could. That is why I am so happy to look back for a moment today before I take on 2015.

2014 ist fast vorbei - Zeit für den jährlichen Rückblick. Es ist einfach nur verrückt, wie das Jahr gelaufen ist. Angefangen hat es bereits mit einem vielleicht Einmal-im-Leben Erlebnis, brachte ein paar kleine Reisen mit sich, ein neues Leben in meiner ganz eigenen Wohnung, es erfüllte mir einen Traum von dem ich vorher nichts wusste, ich glaube sogar mehr als einen. Ich habe wirklich meine Traum voll ausgelebt, wie ich es nur konnte. Deswegen bin ich gerade so glücklich heute einmal zurückzuschauen bevor ich es mir 2015 aufnehme.

Biannually it is one of my must-go-places in Berlin for designer treasures that I shouldn't purchase but can because it's Designer Sale at Station Berlin !
So even though my weekend was fully packed with work and uni homework - I simply had to stop by for an hour. And I came out with this. A wonderful silk top in light grey from T by Alexander Wang. BEAUTY LAYS IN SIMPLICITY. It has a sporty straight cut with racerback and the light fabric is semi-transparent...will have to find a way to wear the top out even in this autumn cold soon!

PS: And for the picture I quickly repurposed my graphic mood homework - haha why not :)

LEANon Styling Anniversary Party

„Why are you doing this?“ A question I am asking myself and get asked quite often. Well, I am a person who works a lot with to-do lists. It gives me such a satisfaction and joy crossing things off a bulleted paper. And though it is not actually on paper (yet, haha) there is a life list somewhere in my mind including the smallest and biggest dreams I can imagine. Those need to be worked off!

Time for MOVING

Clearly I have been a bad blogger in the past weeks...Instead of my usual 3 posts a week, I only published maybe 1 and I am honestly sorry about my neglect. I mean of course there are many reasons for it, some are exciting and promise good times coming up for tha.Darlinh, some make it really hard for me to be persistent on here. Though neither of it justifies the absence because other blogger manage, too - I know.
For starters I am still struggling with balancing all my projects and jobs and studies. I mean right now I am full-time studying fashion design, being a blogger is actually a 24/7 thing, stylist-wise Leonie and me are still starting and all beginnings are hard and my part-time job at WALD brings guaranteed money and great experiences in. Not to forget that I am keeping myself fit with dancing two times a week and am of course spending time with friends. It is a lot and you can call me crazy but then again I must say I found out by now that I am pretty good at time management.
Why I am still not posting regularly? It is not that I don't love writing and posting and creating content that I am passionate for on here but for a while I felt like my and also the blog outgrew it's appearance by now. So during my Easter holidays I started to work on a new layout and a new plan for tha.Darlinh. Important to me was anyhow that I would do it mostly by myself, learning new codings here and there and see what I can build. So that MOVE is still in progress.

But that is not the only thing what is MOVING. Because I am moving, too! And for me that is the best news. I wanted to move out of my parents home since forever (not that I don't love them but as liberate and independant as I am, I have been secretly planning this for years and years and years) and now finally found a place in my favourite party of Berlin. Growing up in Spandau (very west of the city) was the best. I was part of the city but you must know that Spandau is quite seperated and somehow very idyllic with its old quarters and antique houses. Last year I found a place that reminds me so so much of it in Berlin Mitte!! Back then I already told Yuliya that I will someday live there - the quarter that is called the "Nikolaiviertel". Guess what happened. Last Tuesday I suddenly became a mail from a real estate agency that I contacted randomly a while ago saying that there is a apartment that I could look at. I went, fell in love, really immediately rushes home to Spandau, collected all the papers, run back to the agency and with a lot of luck I could come and sign the papers a few days after. WOW and today I got the keys to my very first own apartment in a place that I love. You can't imagine how excited I am. My flat is by bike 5 minutes from WALD, 5 minutes from my dance school and 15 minutes from ESMOD. How perfect is that??

Though the next blogging problem is that I probably wont have the best access to wifi in the next week so please don't be mad if this is again the only post for some time. (I am so sorry!). But just to remind you, there is always Instagram (@thadarlinh) ;-)

Ok the news update and many words later. I believe that the hardest time is nearly over and that I will soon be able to go wild also as a blogger again. My massage appointment is nearly booked thanks to Mydays. Exactly what I will need after this weekend of bringing all my stuff over to the new apartment.

MUCH LOVE and thanks for still sticking around and always supporting me <3

PRODUCT LOVE: Leather Shopper

It's a pity when the zipper of one's favourite bag breaks. That's how it is with my everyday-and-everywhere black bowling bag, that I brought home from Topshop from London Fashion Week last year. Right now I can still work it but I can already see the day when I stand in the queue at the supermarket and make everyone waiting because I can't get my wallet out. 
So positively, now I have the chance to get a new amazing alternativ. Found on www.otto.de - this beauty from Fossil. A big leather shopper which can also be worn like a clutch if folded. And especially important for me: it has a overshoulder strap. I move around a lot and need my hands free quite often. Right now this is my favourite...if I buy it this week, I will get it within 24hours with only 1€ upcharge. YES or NO?

Product Love: MLM The Label

print dress - $129

>> I briefly re-introduced womenswear label Millie Loves Min a.k.a MLM to you in yesterday's post. I am very impressed how much they grew from when I first got to know the Australian brand. 

Therefore a little product love selection from the MLM online shop today. Starting with their dalmatian print dress, the black bralet worn over a grey t-shirt (so good!) and the white zipped leather skirt...

BIG L.O.V.E. to designer Julia Softley and her team!
