Celebrating friendship, the past & the future

With the new year just around the corner we took some time to briefly pause and reflect the past time and the expectations for the future.

In our his­to­ry and all the next chap­ters that are going to be writ­ten our neubau eye­wear friends from all around the world play a huge role. Through their ongo­ing sup­port, their cre­ative ideas, and warm hearts they bring a smile to our face every day. That’s why we asked some of them to answer three quick fire ques­tions for our recap of 2017!

What’s your res­o­lu­tion for the new year?
The next year is going to be a very excit­ed one (I’m get­ting mar­ried in sum­mer), so my res­o­lu­tion would be to take good care of myself, allow myself to relax more often and spend more time with my boyfriend and my family.

What was your high­light of 2017?
My Shoot­ing with Vogue Ger­many in Lon­don + my first Chanel Haute Cou­ture Show in Paris! I’ll nev­er for­get these moments!

My cur­rent frame of mind is…
hard work always pays off.

Decid­ing to move to Brighton with my boyfriend after grow­ing up and liv­ing in Lon­don for 29 years!

fes­tive!

What’s your res­o­lu­tion for the new year?
A seem­ing­ly easy ques­tion but it is not at all… We are used to live so fast that some­times we do not real­ize all the things hap­pen­ing to us. I’ve had to reflect every­thing that I expe­ri­enced this year to come to the con­clu­sion that I want to trav­el more, as it is some­thing I used to do more reg­u­lar­ly and real­ly miss.

What was your high­light of 2017?
There are many things to high­light in 2017, espe­cial­ly on the pro­fes­sion­al lev­el. In 2017 I cre­at­ed my YouTube chan­nel, TilySaz, with my friend Mon­i­ca. We make videos with tips for how to dress bet­ter, care more about your skin, or hav­ing more con­fi­dence in your­self. We are hap­py about hav­ing reached more than 20,000 fol­low­ers in one year who sup­port us every day. Also in 2017 I grad­u­at­ed with hon­ors as an archi­tect in Madrid, my home­town, par­tic­i­pat­ed in the fash­ion week up close, I became an adver­tis­ing and fash­ion mod­el, had an appear­ance at one of the most impor­tant radio sta­tions in Spain and had the oppor­tu­ni­ty to work with inter­est­ing brands such as neubau eyewear.

My cur­rent frame of mind is…
I am cur­rent­ly so excit­ed to be work­ing on some­thing that I am pas­sion­ate about, like fash­ion, com­mu­ni­ca­tion and social net­works. I feel real­ly for­tu­nate for hav­ing a com­mu­ni­ty of peo­ple that sup­port me in every­thing I do. Also, my mind is very busy with new pro­fes­sion­al projects that I hope to real­ize in 2018.

What’s your res­o­lu­tion for the new year?
I think one of my res­o­lu­tions is to not stress too much, what will be will be!

What was your high­light of 2017?
2017 had many highs, I think some of my favorites were my sis­ter get­ting mar­ried, land­ing a cam­paign video with Wendy’s, and my broth­er grad­u­at­ing from col­lege. All were excit­ing and spe­cial moments for me but in com­plete­ly dif­fer­ent ways!

What is your cur­rent frame of mind?
As I work into 2018, I want to keep build­ing up my brand Mak­ing it in Man­hat­tan and col­lab­o­rat­ing with as many cre­ative peo­ple as possible!

What’s your res­o­lu­tion for 2017?
I don’t have any res­o­lu­tions, but I have around 50 achieve­ments which I’d like to com­plete. But if I were to promise any­thing it would be to try and be as kind, fun, and car­ing as I pos­si­bly can be – to myself and others.

What was your high­light of 2017?
My high­light of 2017 was when I trav­eled through Europe with my best girl­friends. For­tu­nate­ly, I brought my neubau glass­es so I could see the beau­ty of every­thing as well. I’m blind with­out them!

My cur­rent frame of mind is…
do what you would do if you weren’t afraid of fail­ure. Life is way too short to be afraid of living.

What’s your res­o­lu­tion for the new year?
To grow my Insta­gram page to at least 40k fol­low­ers by the end of the year. To gain 5 pounds of mus­cle. To see a new part of the world.

What was your high­light of 2017?
My high­light of 2017 must be the moment I real­ized what I’m capa­ble of! Also when I went to yacht week…

What’s your res­o­lu­tion for the new year?
To not stand still, I guess. To go for­ward, every­day, even if it’s only a sin­gle lit­tle step a day but always towards big­ger goals. Some day you’ll get there no mat­ter how fast or how big your steps were. Sounds a bit poet­ic but it’s quite sim­ple. This res­o­lu­tion is not only for my blog­ging career. Main­ly because of my job where I am work­ing on extend­ing my green net­work for our drink­ing water, for our envi­ron­ment and also for your health. My work is also my pas­sion, so my goal is to do some­thing every sin­gle day, even just small things, to enlarge our eco­log­i­cal foot­print. This is not only a res­o­lu­tion but a goal and a wish at the same time. Maybe that’s why I am so into neubau eyewear.

What was your high­light of 2017?
I think my high­light in 2017 wasn’t a sin­gle moment or day but rather my per­son­al devel­op­ment through­out the year (because of my work and bee­ing self-employed). But if I had to name a spe­cial expe­ri­ence I would def­i­nite­ly say the wed­ding of my best friend on the beach in the Caribbean. I can’t even describe in words how beau­ti­ful and breath­tak­ing those moments with all my friends were, sur­round­ed by palmtrees, the beach and the ocean — sim­ply by nature with all your loved ones.

What’s your res­o­lu­tion for the new year?
I actu­al­ly don’t have any new year’s res­o­lu­tion because it nev­er works on me, but I always make sure to bet­ter myself in dif­fer­ent aspects in life – that is impor­tant to me.

What was your high­light of 2017?
The high­light of my 2017 was when I final­ly got myself my first job (work­ing in a menswear bou­tique) which I was eye­ing and hop­ing to get. It led to the devel­op­ment of my knowl­edge in terms of pas­sion which is the per­ma­nent and time­less style… The clas­sic menswear.

My cur­rent frame of mind is…
to keep ele­vat­ing, focus on my goals and stay classy.

What’s your res­o­lu­tion for the new year?
I’m not real­ly good with res­o­lu­tions. But I will try the typ­i­cal things again: to smoke less and to do more sports.

What was your high­light of 2017?
I got a won­der­ful mar­riage pro­pos­al at the most beau­ti­ful beach in Sri Lan­ka — it was dreamy! By the way: I said yes. But there were loads of high­lights. I trav­elled a lot and met so many great and inspir­ing peo­ple. And the best deci­sion I made in 2017 was to quit my full time job, it’s going to be a very excit­ing 2018!

My cur­rent frame of mind is…
tired of being tired.

What is your res­o­lu­tion for the new year?
It’s the same thing I wish for every year come to think of it. A main­tained enthu­si­asm for learn­ing, kind­ness, con­sis­tent growth and pos­i­tive oppor­tu­ni­ty in all aspects in my life. Per­son­al­ly, and professionally.

What was your high­light of 2017?
Wow, that is a dif­fi­cult one. I have been so for­tu­nate and blessed to have had the kind of year that most peo­ple dream to have. I shared so many lov­ing moments with all of my nuclear fam­i­ly, I trav­eled, I met some of the most amaz­ing peo­ple I would’ve nev­er even dreamed of meet­ing, I grad­u­at­ed from col­lege, I made the deci­sion to run my busi­ness full time, I danced with Fer­gie, I changed my address, I worked on real­ly qual­i­ty projects and the list goes on. My per­son­al growth has sur­prised me a bit. I have come a long way and it’s real­ly touch­ing to me to have been able to share some of those defin­ing moments with peo­ple I dear­ly love and respect. That part would be the highlight!

My cur­rent frame of mind…
… high points con­tin­u­ous grad­u­a­tion, deter­mi­na­tion and grat­i­tude. I am real­ly look­ing for­ward to growth. I’ve grown a lot with­in the past few months and at such a young age, it real­ly makes me excit­ed for what’s to come — every­thing else that I have to learn. I am very elat­ed about every­thing I have been able to expe­ri­ence this year pro­fes­sion­al­ly and per­son­al­ly. It has been such a whirl­wind. There are a series of things I would love to accom­plish in the fol­low­ing year and cur­rent­ly, I’m try­ing to put the pieces togeth­er in order to do so — comprehensively.
