Happy first of November! How did you spend the last day of October? Are you a fan of Halloween or just like me Hallo-couch? I really enjoyed to be at home for a couple of days before I’m on the road(or runway) again.
So, it’s the first of November and we have to celebrate something! My blog THE CLASSY CLOUD turned 3!!!
Can you believe it? I started my blog exactly 3 years ago and here I am. Still blogging with passion about my life as a flight attendant and how to travel in style.
I can’t thank you enough for your endless support and love regarding my blog and Instagram. I appreciate every single like, comment and message, which means a lot to me. Thanks a million!
And I’m returning the love with 3(third blog birthday!) big boxes full of surprises, so leave me a comment below and I will pick 3 winners next week. The giveaway is open internationally to all of my loyal readers. Good luck! <3
October is my birthday month and I turned 42 on the 27th. But let’s make it a 24! Because 42 is the new 24, right? We all stay young at heart and I don’t feel a bit older than last year. ;) I actually booked a trip last-minute as a birthday getaway, which didn’t get confirmed so I stayed in Munich and had dinner with my best friend. As you may know, I’m not a big birthday party person and prefer to have an intimate dinner with close friends rather than get drunk in a club. Well, is it a sign that I AM getting older? ;) Nevertheless, we had a great time with good food, drinks and talks and I was for one day the happiest girl on earth! Thanks so much for all you sweet birthday wishes! They really made my day. <3
So what else changes with the beginning of November? Some of you might have noticed some hints on Instagram already, and yes I’m going back to Mother base Frankfurt! That means I’ll be commuting from Munich to Frankfurt and I’m sure it’ll be so worth it. It’s been exactly 4 years in Munich, where I had great times with lovely colleagues but there are so many (personal) reasons, why I decided to go back. And it feels good! My first flight goes to Bogota this Friday and I can’t wait to be back in Frankfurt. I’m not moving though. It’s just the base. Wish me luck for a new(old) start. :)

I had almost a month off from September to October and was invited by Robinson Club to spend a week at one of their resorts. Bags were packed and I took my blogger bestie to board the plane to Antalya, where we checked in the legendary party and single club Robinson Camyuva. The review is almost finished with over 100 photos and a very emotional text, so stay tuned. :)
My last vacation days are coming up next week and I still couldn’t decide where to go. I have one sunny place in mind and I hope it’ll work out. Next week this time, I’ll be hopefully at the beach with a drink by my side. I will keep you updated.
A breakup letter to M
I hope this message finds you well. I don’t know where to start. I was so full of hope and joy when I first met you. We had a great time, I was cheerful as ever and then things gradually started to change. I still remember the day, when you told me that I’m changing my shoes in the wrong moment. Is there a wrong moment for changing shoes? Seriously? You started to complain about this and that and I really didn’t get it. What was the problem? And then we had a super fun layover in LA and San Francisco with colleagues and months later I realize you are talking behind my back? Where does all this negativity come from? Is it your insecurities or your unhappy life?
M, whatever I did, you gave me the feeling that I’m not enough. I tried. I tried really hard. To change something, to make it better but everything I did seemed wrong. I could be the nicest person in the world, you would always see something wrong in me. That was the turning point, when I realized that I couldn’t do anything to save this relationship. I asked you what’s wrong. You never replied.
It’s time to part and I wanna surround myself with people who lift me up instead of dragging me down. M, I’m not holding a grudge. I just let go of what didn’t work. And I hope you can also let go of what made you so negative.
I know I’m enough and I know I’m a person full of joy and love. So Im moving on.
Thanks for the happy memories and take care.
P.S.: M is not a boyfriend. It refers to a bunch of negative minded people.
I wore these two outfits in Vienna, where I was invited by Peek&Cloppenburg to celebrate the new canvas bag collection by Marina Hoermanseder. It was a great experience to meet new people, connect and have a great time. I’m always so grateful for these opportunities and never take them for granted.
Thanks so much for reading this long post and I hope you enjoyed it.
Let me know your thoughts and don’t forget to comment to enter the giveaway.
