ENG: And this was probably one of those moments in London I will never forget. Sitting in the front row and watching a catwalk show of Teatum Jones. It was one of my dreams which finally came true. Teatum Jones' design speaks to a super smart, confident and creative woman. It's a label which has become recognized for its modern, polished and bold aesthetic.

GER: Auf diesen Tag habe ich schon seit gefühlten Millionen von Jahren gewartet. LONDON FASHION WEEK! Ich kann es immer noch nicht glauben, dass ich die Möglichkeit hatte in der ersten Reihe zu sitzen und die Show von Teatum Jones anzuschauen. Teatum Jones' Designs sprechen für clevere, selbstbewusste und kreative Frauen. Das Label gewann durch seine moderne, glänzende und wagemutige Ästhetik seine Berühmtheit und wurde bereits von vielen Weltmarken gekauft (z.B. Net-a-Porter, Harvey Nichols and Liberty)

Well, here I am again and this time with pretty interesting updates! Today was the day I was looking forward to and finally, I had the opportunity to shop in TOPSHOP with a personal assistance for around 2 hours. Pretty cool, isn't it?! I tried around 25 items on and I've chosen 4 of those, lol!
Even though it might sound like a little success, I can definitely say that I am absolutely honored and super happy that I've been nominated as the "most stylish person" at school. Therefore, I could enjoy these amazing moments and redeem my TOPSHOP voucher worth of 100 pounds today.
What a day?! It is still unbelievable! I had an amazing time with some awesome Instagrammers today. I am so thankful to be invited to such fun little get together events. Thanks to INSTAGRAM for making me the happiest girl on earth for the next couple of days!
Approximately 2 weeks ago, I've received an email from Eva, who is working for Community & Teens @Instagram. She asked me whether I want to join the Instagram-Event in London, in the so-called "Lights of Soho". This location was more than insane - neon lights everywhere!!
It feels so good to know that Instagram considerate our opinions in regard to its settings. We had a little chat for around 2 hours, basically talking about INSTAGRAM's new updates like for example the live session, the chronological order of photos and also the negative aspects we don't really enjoy on Instagram currently.
While our conversation continued we were frequently consuming macarons and pretty healthy smoothies. This was definitely one of the best parts of the meeting, haha.
But an Instagram-Event without an Instagram live session wouldn't be a real Instagram meeting.
Therefore we decided to be live at 12:00 pm and we made it. Thanks to those who popped into the live stream! I really enjoyed it.
8th of February:
TOPSHOP shopping day
Stay tuned on Snapchat @mervinoblog
I really can't believe that I've reached more than 50,000 clicks on my Blog. Not sure how to feel about this fact but I'm definitely more than happy 😍 .
Currently, I'm taking over the Instastories @EFdeutschland, which means you can follow me around London and my journey again for a couple of days! It is a kinda funny experience, especially because of the people staring at me while I'm talking to my smartphone, lol. However, I really enjoy it!
Overview for the next couple of days/ weeks
Thanks to my girls who organized a day trip to Dublin for this Thursday. I'm really keen on visiting this incredible city. It's going to be a crazy journey. I mean I've never taken an airplane twice a day. At 10:30 am we are going to be in Dublin while skipping our classes (höhö) and our return flight is planned at 21:05 pm.
The most unbelievable thing is, that I'm invited to an Instagram meeting in London on the 4th February. I can't even find any words! We'll be going live to the world together with other Instagrammers. I'm going to have the chance to meet some of the Instagram team, and ask them those questions I've been dying to know the answer and meet other members of the community!
As I had been nominated for the most stylish person at my school, I've won a TOPSHOP voucher eventually. I will have the chance to shop for 3 hours with a personal shop assistance in Oxford Circus.
My sort of appointment:
THE WARDROBE OVERHAUL
The complete makeover. The shoppers will bring me the essential styles and get me prepped for the new season trends, with access to the latest styles before anyone else.
Make sure you follow me on Snapchat @mervinblog
on the 7th February at 2:30 pm
LONDON FASHION WEEK on 23th-26th February:
Not sure yet, but my friend and I are aiming to join this adventure!!
I literally don't even know how to describe my feelings after the collaboration I've had with my school (EF Education First).
It was the very first time that I've taken over a Snapchat account and, by this time, I couldn't think about something more exciting than that. I was talking to the audience personally and has shown them London and my lifestyle during my stay with EF for about one week. My school gave me the chance to be in contact with students from other EF schools and also with people who were interested in EF.
My very first LIVE SESSION on Facebook:
When I received an email with the remark on a Facebook live-session for EF Germany, I went crazy. It is definitely one of the biggest things I've ever done on social media. In this Livestream, I've been showing you my school and interviewing one of the EF Staff.
LIVE SESSION for FB and Instagram:
After a couple of days, I received again a message, this time by the international EF team asking me for another live-session for their official Instagram and Facebook pages. I couldn't reject this offer, of course not.
First, we recorded on the Westminster Bridge in front of the Big Ben and London Eye while answering some of your questions on Facebook. By the way, actually, we were live twice, just because we couldn't post the first stream, lol. Thanks to Google, which helped us to fix the problem. In our second attempt, we've solved the difficulty! Lucky us!
The good news is that we are going to reach 54.000 viewers on that video. AMAZING!
For the second part of our live-session, we introduced the Oxford Circus to the audience. In addition to Oxfordstreet, we showed you the British Brand TOPSHOP.
Moreover, I have been nominated as "The most stylish student" at my school, which means that I've won a TOPSHOP voucher (a private shopping day + shop assistant).
Now, I am really looking forward redeeming my voucher 😍
At the end of the day, we were live on Instagram for a Q &A. What a success, wow!!!
Thanks to Tom (the coolest workmate ever) and EF for this really enjoyable experience. I had so much fun during that "project"
Just in case you want to watch all of those videos again, make sure you visit my Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/mervinooblog/
"A place to be" is the first sentence coming to my mind when I'm talking about my current favorite city. While spending my time in London I've really enjoyed every single day to the fullest and I'm still doing. Despite this fact, I'm kind of looking forward to my return flight in March, though.
At the beginning, it was quite hard to leave my hometown with two big suitcases for 6 months. Unfortunately, I've recognized that I have to cook (haha) or do all the stuff by my own which actually my mom was doing for me in the past. At the first couple of days, it took a bit of time to get used to it but now I really enjoy it to live alone.
The EF International Language School is my current school I've been visiting. Momentarily, I am pushing me to the fullest especially because I'm aiming my Cambridge degrees in CAE at the 3rd of March.
Hoi! Das Aktualisieren meines Blogs hat doch etwas länger gebraucht als geplant. But who cares?!
Mein Aufenthalt in London wurde um einige Wochen verlängert. Ich bin aber momentan am überlegen ob es wirklich eine gute oder schlechte Nachricht ist. Mittlerweile spüre ich nämlich die Sehnsucht nach meinem Bett und nach dem gesunden Essen meiner Mutter. Natürlich versuche ich mich einigermaßen ausgeglichen zu ernähren, jedoch fällt es mir dann doch schwer auf die Nutellabrote zu verzichten. Der nächtliche Heißhunger auf irgendetwas Ungesundes macht mir ebenso die Hölle heiß 😁 . Auf Grund dessen wird seit Wochen der Hyde Park unsicher gemacht. Sport. Ich Faule, ja sogar ich bekomme es endlich hin etwas effektives für meinen Körper zu machen.
Ich muss aber zugeben, dass die Tasty page auf Facebook meine Leben rettet. Diese Seite bietet viele, einfache, dreißigsekündige Videos mit verschiedene Rezepte an. Es ist definitiv ein Like wert (hier).
Nach meinem, mittlerweile, dreimonatigen Aufenthalt in London kann ich ungelogen sagen, dass ich in meinem Leben noch nie so viele verschiedene Persönlichkeiten, Charaktere und Verhaltensweisen von Menschen gesehen habe. Das Motto vieler meiner Mitschüler ist: "Ich bin in London, niemand kennt mich hier!". Ja super, niemand kennt dich, aber die ganze Schule spricht über dich. Diese Tatsache ist, meiner Meinung nach, auch nicht viel besser.
Für die nächsten Wochen stehen gute und interessante Aktionen an. Eine Live-Session auf Facebook, ein Snapchat-Takeover und Instastories werden stattfinden.
Mit wem, wo und wann? Die genaueren Daten werde ich in den kommenden Tagen noch bekanntgeben.
