Breaking the Rules

When I started blogging I made a list of things I would not write about or show. This No-No list featured: Pictures of food (very difficult to get right and pictures of babies. But then again is there anything better than a cool guy with a cute baby in his arms? I guess not. Especially not if the guy is my brother and the baby one of our newest family members, his daughter Paula.

To finally meet Paula and to check up on my brother's latest creative endevours was my main reason for going to Berlin last week. He and his friends from Konzeptwerk are up to some cool stuff... After having built the the suncooker window display for Louis Vuitton at the Champs-Elysée in Paris and the Summer Pavillion in London's Hyde Park for Olafur Eliasson they were now in the process of putting together some pretty impressive caleidoscopes...

You see why I had to break my own rules... At least once (and knowing me it won't be the last time). But what about you? Do you have any No-Nos for your blog?

Your family is beautiful!...I try to keep my private life as private as possible, especially not giving out too much info.

Sabine said...

Yes, me too. But what can I do if my brother and his daughter are so attractive? It was just too tempting.

Caroline, No. said...

I can definitely see why you broke the rules.

I'm with you on babies. In fact I nearly broke my computer trying to unsubscribe from a particularly heinous mummy blog recently. (God knows why I signed up for it in the first place!)

My only real rule is to try and keep it positive. :)

Sabine dear,
continue to break the rules~
enjoy looking at all kind of creative expression & adorable babies too! oooh I want to squeeze those cheeks~
ps: haha...keep your age a secret, we always do understand that part.
& Food, why not?!

Lovely weekend~

Sabine said...

Oh Lenore, you don't know what you are doing... This might become a baby food blog! Baby food or babies and food? ...

Couture Carrie said...

drollgirl said...

what an adorable photo! i love it! she is just adorable.

i am trying to think what i don't really want to post on my blog. mostly photos of myself, but i even posted those more than once. thankfully they are buried waaaaay in the back somewhere. hahahah. i think i TRY not to post whatever everybody else is talking about, but that isn't always so easy.

S.Elisabeth said...

Aw Paula is so adorable. And your brother's job sounds so insanely cool.
Hmm no nos for my blog... I can't say I have too many, if any at all.... No really personal information I guess?

Vinda Sonata said...

hi Sabine, your brother is very handsome! and the baby is beautiful, too. yes, sometimes it feels great if we could break free from the rules :) i myself don't quite have strict rules for a blog myself, but my personal no is to write about bad things derived from other people's personal experiences, or giving rants about a fight or a terrible person publicly in a blog :)

fadetoblack said...

Gizelle | Vanilla Ice Cream said...

Hi there-your niece is gorgeous and your brother is very talented in his job, what fab jobs to have been involved with!!

I tend to blog less now about family than what I used to, it does creep in sometimes though!!

Sher said...

Aww, this is so sweet! You must be a very proud Aunt, she's absolutely adorable! I love babies:)

I'm glad you broke this rule:P

This is truly beautiful. They look so perfect together and I'm so pleased you decided to share this.

Zenobie said...

Paula is so adorable. Those big blue eyes! I do love your blog Sabine, style blogs with a feel good factor are defiantly the way forward.

Sabine said...

Thank you, Zenobie! I love the idea of writing a blog 'with feelgood factor'.

Hi Sabine on another... it was snowing sunday ;)

What a cute photo of your brother and his daughter!

Had to smile about your no-no´s.
Sometimes I have the feeling the whole "I have to send about what I wish to have and what I wear is not really me :)"
But I met during the last year some wonderful people, we email each other and write a little bit more personal things and photos!

Wishing you a joyful sunday!!!

enc said...

I'm glad you broke the rules, it gives us a chance to enjoy baby joy and your handsome brother!

(Thanks for your recent comment on my blog.)

sofiasophie said...

My No-No is never to talk about me !!!

Jen said...

How utterly adorable. They're wearing matching tops! Too cute.

Classic Copenhagen said...

You can get away with it. Especially when your brother is Viggo Mortensen... haha. The important thing to me, blogwise, is to not violate anyones privacy, and like you stay age-less. Oh, and make sure credit is given where credit is due, if I should happen to use somebody elses images. But I am a beginner, more rules will probably follow, and be broken along the way.

Did you know you were the first ever to leave a comment on my blog? There should be an award for that.

Haha! I am glad you made an exception to your rule! These photos are beautiful!

valncami said...

Your brother is so gorgeous... WOW.. It would be a crime not to show off his (and his daughters) beauty.

Theres always exceptions to the rules... Otherwise the cliche would not exist. :)

Pratishtha Durga said...

Sabine, I posted earlier, but my comments were not getting through.
I am an aunt to a gorgeous, adorable niece, Mayara, and I know the joy and the desire to share it. I am glad you broke the rule.

Haute World said...

Just had to say... your niece is adorable!~ :)

Connie said...

I have a nephew and niece and show them off whenever possible, so I say break the rules it's much more fun!
