Frohe Weihnachten!

I have to tell you, I wasn't excited about Christmas AT ALL. You have to know though, that I'm usually very excited about Christmas. I feel like a three year old that cannot sleep on Christmas Eve cause she's too excited. Man, excited is a nice word!

yummy stewed apples

Since I found out how easy to make and delicious stewed apples are, I practically made them every. single. day. It's the perfect warm desert for cold winter nights. I tastes good cold as well!

look what i made: diy printed cushion covers + tutorial

After painting my chair and my kitchen shelf, I wanted to spice things up a little bit more. I still haven't dyed my couch cover because my mother's washing machine broke, I don't have one and I'm too scared to dye it in my bath tub and to ruin everything, the cover and the tub. So I'm still having a boring white couch BUT I have fun cushion covers!

update on my life.

Hi everyone! This post is to update you on what is going on in my life:

I work for a company that works for several Federal Ministries of Germany. I work in the PR/Eventmanagement department. Lately, we took over several project managements and therefore have to re-structures websites, plan important events, write new image brochures yadda yadda yadda. Although I only work 30hrs/week, I've been in the office at least 35-40hrs/week for the last three weeks.

apartment makeover part 2: kitchen shelf

I don't have a proper kitchen. That means I don't have an extra room that I call kitchen. My room is shaped like an L and that tiny thing i call "the place where I can cook" is the shorter end of the L. Some may call it an open kitchen. Lemme tell you folks, it's not an open kitchen, it's not a closed kitchen. It's just a tiny space in my room that happens to have a fridge and two hotplates, nothing more.

apartment makeover part 1: chair

I bought that chair when I moved into my flat a few years ago. Since I don't have a dining table and I usually sit on my couch, I put clothes on it or my cat sleeps on it. I think it's the cheapest wooden chair you can get at Ikea, it's about 15 euros.

new blog design!

Instead of cleaning up my place I decided that it was not only time to pimp my place but also my blog! What do you think?

i'm only sexy when i say it's okay

I don't know about you but I love concerts. My first concert was 5IVE, do you remember them?
Do you wanna get down, do you wanna get fun-ky, do you wanna get down, get on down! I think I was about 13 or 14 back then. I felt so grown up going out without my mom spying on me. (Never mind my friend's mother picking us up afterwards.)

i'm back! (apologise included)

Hi guys! As I said before, I've been a bit MIA recently. Reason was that I finally met friends I wanted to see for a really long time but didn't. I have to admit: I have been a bad friend for several months now. It's really hard to keep up with everyone and if you might be one of those friends: I apologise!

sunday walk: lovely berlin

Yesterday was such a lovely day, the sun was shining and it was really warm considering that it is already October. I decided to go for a walk and show you how beautiful Berlin is. I didn't realise how awesome Berlin was until I moved to another city a few years ago.

i won: organic cosmetics set

A few weeks ago, my mother and I went to a drug store to buy some things. At the store was a table promoting their own organic cosmetics line "alverde". We had the chance to win a gift set of their marigold line by simply filling out a card that asked "what's the botanic name of marigold?". So I filled it out (calendula) and forgot about it.

my experience with fake nails

A few months ago, I started wearing fake nails on a daily basis. My own nails don't grow long, they splinter and break very easily and I always have to cut them when they reached my desired length. I love wearing nail polish and want it to look good but that is just not possible with my natural nails.

the one book i've enjoyed the most lately

Ever since I was a little girl I've loved reading. When I was twelve or 13 I was a huge sucker for Goosebumps and Fear Street, teenage horror at its best! I read all of the Sookie Stackhouse novels and yes, I even enjoyed the Twilight series. I developed a preference for Jean-Paul Sartre, Nick Hornby and Jonathan Safran Foer. Everywhere I went I had a book with me. I read in busses, in my bed, at the doctor's and in class when it was too boring.

look what i made: ombre nails

I know I'm late but I finally tried out the ombre look! I wish I had super healthy and smooth hair, then I would totally ombre dye my hair. Well, fact is my hair is deader than dead. It's dry and not shiny at all and I guess it will just fall out if I dye it again.

vegan pie and cake

Two days ago I baked a vegan apple pie and a vegan coconut cake. I'm a vegetarian but I love trying out new things, just like vegan pies/cakes. Baking without the the traditional ingredients (butter, eggs, milk) isn't a challenge!

Herbstfavouriten!

Ich liebe den Herbst, nicht nur, weil ich da Geburtstag habe, sondern auch, weil man nicht mehr so schwitzt, man sich einmuckeln kann und trotzdem die Sonne scheint.

DIY Weltkarten-Koffer

Vor ein paar Monaten habe ich bei mir im Hausflur einen alten Koffer gefunden. Er war potthässlich. Ich habe ihn dennoch mitgenommen. Ich habe schon immer gerne gebastelt und dachte, ich finde bestimmt eine Möglichkeit, den Koffer zu verschönern.

Als ich heute Nachmittag mit dem Rad über die Turmstraße fuhr, schallten durch die Rufe der Obst- und Gemüsehändler Instrumente. Geigen, Klavier, Trompeten...

Nagellacksammlung

Ich bewahre meine Nagellacke in einer leeren GlossyBox auf. Die meisten Lacke, die ich habe sind von p2. Der Auftrag ist einfach und der flache Pinsel super.

Dancing Ed

Letzten Freitag und Samstag war ich auf dem Berlin Festival im Flughafen Tempelhof. Die Location ist super, es gab eine Hauptbühne und zwei kleinere Bühnen in zwei Hangars (ja, das ist der richtige Plural).

Stimmung!!

Dieses Wochenende werde ich zum fünften Mal zum Berlin Festival gehen.

2007 war das Festival in der Tent Station, auf dem Gelände des ehemaligen Freibads "Poststadion". Klein und sehr überschaubar war's, mit einer größeren Bühne und zwei oder drei Minibühnen. Tocotronic waren damals Headliner. Und jetzt, sechs Jahre später, freue ich mich auf Tocotronic genauso wie damals!

Haare

Seit ich mich erinnern kann, fand ich meine Haare doof und beneidete andere um ihre Lockenprachten oder Rapunzelmähnen. Als Kind hatte ich blonde Löckchen, aber dann wurde ich älter und die Engelslocken wichen einem schrecklichen Aschblond und zerzausten Wellen.
