On Envie's Horizon...

19-07-2013

mcm_envie


Envie [desire] takes you on a journey in search of pure aesthetics. It’s about people who dedicate their lives to all aspects of beauty, to designs that arouse true desire and to culinary experiences that will forever be etched on our tongues. Envie is about the little things that make life a work of art. It is Lara Maria Grafen's life, job and daily occupation. It is more than just a blog. The lovely young lady behing one of Germany's most pleasing online blogzines wasn't only one of the few chosen VIP bloggers that joined our exclusive Fashion Brunch in London, she also is today's star... 

What’s on YOUR Horizon, Lara Maria Grafen?

What’s on your mind? 


Right now I am taking a week off from everything to enjoy the summer in my hometown in the Moselle. So there shouldn't be a lot on my mind. But of course, it's never like that. I am planning a lot at the moment on how to take Envie to the next level and about its future. The past 5 years of blogging have been a really interesting process and it is so great to see the places it can take you to. On the one hand it is really exciting, but sometimes also a little bit scary. These are my thoughts right now. And what to cook for dinner tonight ;-)

What are your hopes / dreams / aspirations? 


My true hope is that I will find a nice balance between work and family one day. Family has always been my priority number one and I can't wait to start my own. I would love to stay in the blogging and social media business and take it to the next level and combine it with a more down-to-earth family living, which brings me to my actual goal: never losing track on what's really important in life and not to let anyone or anything get in between this. This is what my parents taught me and I hope to be able to teach this my children.

What’s on your horizons of travel? 


I have been very lucky when it comes to travelling and had the chance to travel to so many amazing places: New Zealand, Australia, Hong Kong, New York and of course most of Europe. I need travelling in my life, but I also love being home. I do love travelling with the knowledge I am coming back home afterwards. My next trip will be to Antwerp and Nice - both cities I absolutely love for their culture and especially their food. I really wanna go back to New Zealand too. Aside from that, my biggest dream is to swim with a whaleshark, which you can do in Australia or the Maldives.

What would be on your horizons if you had a genie 

in a handbag (if you had any wish)?

What’s on your MCM shopping/wish list horizons? 


I would really love to have the visetos clutch with the Craig & Karl glasses on it. A simple design that makes me smile.

What would be on your horizon if you could have/be/do anything?


Envie would be the Number One source for aesthetical living and be internationally cherished. This really would be my dream job! Making everyone's lives more beautiful. 


Thank you, Lara! Check out Lara's Blog "Envie" here.

Love, the Janes
