Last week I spent two wonderful days in Nürnberg for the Adidas NEO Best Friends Days which meant we all got to bring our best friend along. Unfortunately Louisa had to drop out very last minute, but Adidas was so kind to let me bring another really really great friend of mine, Ayse, along and we spent the two days with a lot of laughter, bonding, roomservice, one night at the Holiday Inn Nürnberg City, really really good dinner and breakfast, a cup of Glühwein at the Christlmarkt, late night sport session at the Hotel gym with Whoopie and my beloved Serah, a quick invasion of us girls of the Hotel Sauna, hours of girly talk and just way too much fun to fit into two days.
With my usual Adidas NEO companions in crime Desi&Nisi and their best friends we boarded the plane to Nürnberg, an hour later united with the other invited bloggers (It’s no NEO trip without Desi, Nisi and Annie! Adidas NEO events are becoming something like our traditional quicky reunion spots 😀 ), two new faces and my much loved Adidas NEO Team.
Black J.LO (yes that’s me in my P.I.M.P coat and shades for no apparent reason – it certainly wasn’t sunny outside!) and WasLosAyseeee?! (Ayse) were ready to take over Nürnberg City.
What was more exciting was our day trip to the Adidas Headquarters which believe me is quite overwhelming. We started with a tour at the Adidas Museum guiding us through the Adidas history and highlights of the company. (Did you know Adidas was originally named Addas until sued by a company, Adi Dassler cheeky as he was simply added an “i”?? Haha!). Between the very first shoe and world cup football ball, the Stella McCartney Collection and some super old Beckhams and classic Jeremy Scotts, we got a tour around the Adidas Headquarters (huuge huuuge huge campus!) and we visited the Adidas NEO design team. They told us about the whole process of a collection – from design to the final product hanging in stores, about inspiration finding and working with Selena Gomez and we saw their mood boards and designs for 2015 and the first few samples for their collection coming up next year.
Our trip ended with a Shopping Spree at the Adidas NEO Store and each of us got to choose one piece of our liking from the entire store. I didn’t know what to choose but finally picked a white pair from the Selena Gomez collection. It always ends up with shoes, doesn’t it?
And a group foto as memory..
CAN’T THANK THE ADIDAS NEO TEAM ENOUGH for these two days and all the amazing events and experiences I got to make with them alone in this year!
