How do I get Hermes winged staff

Already an entire month passed by since I returned from my short trip to Holland with Joy and I still haven’t shared all the pictures we took during the two days we were there. Let's change this today because you know, the best comes for last!

Well, I know people who order their dessert before the main course because they want to make sure they still have space in their stomach for the best - however, I'm the complete opposite! Regarding this mentality, I'm just typical Swiss because saving (or saving up) has always been the most normal thing in my family. I remember very well when I was a kid and wasn't allowed to spend all of grandpa’s Christmas money to extend my Playmobil collection but rather had to put at least half of it in my piggybank.

Yes, meanwhile I indeed splurge on unnecessary things from time to time - talking about Chanel Boy bags and that kind of stuff - though, you must know that these are not a spontaneous decisions but instead there's always a careful consideration going ahead to make sure this one piece matches me perfectly and isn't just a trend I run after because a Chiara Ferragni is wearing it. And yes, I buy most of those expensive pieces myself because I noticed very quickly, that I appreciate it much more this way as if I just get it without really working for it.

The value of a big ticket item, let's say a designer bag, absolutely doesn’t lie in the prestige of a brand to me, rather it’s about the emotional value an investment actually serves me. It's the fact that you work real hard to achieve something you had an eye on for a while. Seriously, recently when I sat in Zurich in the front of the Sprüngli restaurant, drinking my coffee and observing the people passing by, I realized again how crazy rich this city actually is. In half minute intervals there were Chanel Boys and 2.55s, all kind of Louis Vuitton models, Chloé Drews and Fayes and sometimes even a Hermes walking by. On old ladies, on business women and on many young - extremely young! - girls.

So I instantly asked myself, whether these luxury goods are already taken-for-grantedness by us, especially by those young girls? I mean, is a bag collection worth more than 30000 Euros at the age of twenty something really a normal thing? I got sick thinking about it because no - no, it definitely shouldn’t be normal at all and that’s why I’m overthinking every bigger purchase for quite some time. It's definitely not normal to spend so much money on one material good whose material isn’t worth much more than the one of a similar good from a discounter.

Admittedly I deviated from the subject as actually it was about saving up the best for the last. I'm not only doing it with the dessert but actually with pretty much everything I do - also with this last series of pictures from Holland which is my personal favorite after these photos within the tulip fell (and some tips to plan your own trip to Holland) and these ones in e purple sea of ​​flowers. Which one is your favorite?


It's been a whole month since I returned from my short trip to Holland with Joy and I still haven't shared all of the pictures that I took during the two days with you. That changes today. Because, as everyone knows, the best comes at the end.

Well, I know people who order their dessert before the main course because they absolutely want to have room in their stomachs for the best - I'm the complete opposite! Maybe I'm just typically Swiss in this regard, because saving (or saving up) has always been completely normal in my family. Even as a child, I wasn't allowed to spend all of my grandfather's fifty coins for Christmas to expand my Playmobil collection, but dutifully put half of it into my piggy bank.

Yes, now and then I like to spend money on unnecessary things - Chanel Boy Bags and so on - but that still doesn't just happen spontaneously, but only after careful consideration to make sure that this one part belongs to me fits and is not just a trend that I run after because Chiara Ferragni wears it. And yes, I buy most of the expensive pieces myself, because I quickly realized that I appreciate them so much more than if I just got them without having to do anything.

For me, the value of an expensive purchase, let's say a designer bag, is absolutely not in the prestige of the brand, rather such an investment has an emotional value. It's working towards something and ultimately earning yourself with all the work. Honestly, when I sit in front of the Sprüngli in Zurich, drink my coffee and watch the people, I notice again how rich the city actually is. Every half minute, Chanel Boys and 2.55s, all Louis Vuitton variants, Chloé Drews and Fayes and now and then a Hermes walk past here. To old ladies, business women and an extremely large number of young - really young! - girls.

And then I sometimes ask myself whether such luxury goods are actually a matter of course for some of them? A collection of bags worth over 30,000 euros at the age of early / mid-20s, is that normal? Somehow I suddenly feel sick at the thought, because no - no, it should definitely not be normal. And that's exactly why I think about it so long before I buy an expensive item, because it is not normal to spend so much money on a material good whose material value is actually not much higher than that of a similar good from a discounter.

Well, now I've digressed a bit, because actually it was about saving the best for the last time. I don't just do that with dessert, but with basically everything I do - including this last series of photos from Holland, which is my very favorite after these photos in the tulip fields (and tips for your Holland trip) and this one in a purple sea of ​​flowers is. Which is your favorite
