The Vangardist Magazine invited me to the countryside for a few days to get a feeling of nostalgia and becoming part of their new issue.


After a short waiting period at the famous “Naschmarkt” area in Vienna – including a big truck which was unloading our rides by “Mini” on one of Vienna’s busiest roads (btw really something you want see every day) – we were ready to race to the Semmering. This region was our photography and nostalgia playground for the following days.


I actually grew up at the countryside in Austria, so I really got a nostalgic feeling by wandering through the woods for getting the famous “20 Schilling” view which was close by our villa.


Alongside with other bloggers from Austria and Riccardo Simonetti from Germany, we were posing in the hallways, rooms and spa area of our beautiful home for the days of our Nostalgia trip called “Villa Antoinette“.


You can tell in the moment you’re entering the Villa, that this is a special place. There is a lot of love in every detail.  Every corner is picture perfect! A paradise for bloggers and instagramers – or just for the occasional seeker of peace and tranquility outside the city.


Luckily Vangardist came with a bunch of high fashion nostalgic clothes so our blogger hearts were beating faster and the cameras were continuously clicking, once we dressed up in our roles as nostalgic fashion lovers.

All six bloggers got an exclusive cover for the Nostalgia Issue of the magazine, that was just released. My second cover shoot in the last month – I’m pretty sure I’ll be getting famous now ;)
