After a pretty long time counting down the months and days until the 16th August, the day has finally arrived! We (my boyfriend and I) will be leaving this afternoon to Colombo, Sri Lanka’s capital, where we will start a two-week long trip around the island. Safaris, temples, elephant walks and unforgettable train journeys. These are just some of the things that we expect during our backpacking adventure. Are you ready to follow us?
Hi everyone! It’s been a long time and a lot has changed in my life since I last wrote. I am now living in Munich with my boyfriend and I am working in an amazing fashion company in the Brand & Content Department. I am super happy with everything in my life right now. However, I sometimes feel very frustrated when I think about this blog and how I just cannot find the time to update all of you guys and think about cool content I could write about… But I am going to try to change this. I have some cool trips planned out during these next couple of months and would love to bring you along and show you the amazing places I go to.
As I wrote in one of my first posts, my biggest beauty struggle is to find a routine that works wonders for my skin and then actually sticking to it. I watch all these beauty gurus sharing their nine-steps to perfect skin and I seriously envy them. However, at the same time loads of questions pop up in my mind. Where do they find time to do all these steps? How much money do they have to spend on all these products?
It’s been quite a while since I sat down and wrote something for the blog… I know… And I am very angry at myself for not doing so…! However in my defence, I would like to say that I’ve been very busy at work and have tried to enjoy as much as I could the nice warm days in Hamburg and my two weeks of holidays in Spain 🙂 That’s why I decided to update you guys with all the fun stuff I have been up to while I have been away.
Some weekends ago I got into a plane and went to visit my boyfriend in Munich. It was a great trip and at last, I could walk around the city without it being pouring with rain (at least on Saturday)! 🙂 We had a really nice time showing my boyfriend’s sister and her boyfriend around and very much enjoyed finding new places near my boyfriend’s apartment. However, on Saturday night, we really didn’t know where to go to have dinner and we were not in the mood to walking too far. Therefore, we decided to try out a restaurant that we had found a few hours ago that looked very nice and had a really interesting concept: you have to grill your own meat!
I’ve never been good at picking out the perfect foundation for me. I always choose the wrong color – sometimes I don’t remember that I am as pale as Snow White and I go home with a foundation that is three shades darker than my actual skin or I buy one that is too pink for me. So, after many years struggling to make the foundations that I own look actually look good on me, I decided to ditch them all and start my research to find my holy grail foundation.
This weekend I decided to fly to Munich to help my boyfriend out with his new tiny studio. He moved in on Thursday and there was no furniture at all. Therefore, we planned to spend all Saturday in Ikea, Butlers and Tkmaxx to find the perfect pieces of furniture and miscellaneous stuff, as he always says – although, I think towels are quite important, don’t you think so?
A few months ago my boyfriend and I decided to plan a surf trip to Porto. We were very excited for this getaway as our last surf trip was almost one year ago. However, things didn’t go as we planned… Our ideal weekend was completely drenched. From the moment we landed to the moment we flew back to Hamburg, it didn’t stop raining, not even for an hour! Therefore, we had to cancel our surfing day – it was too dangerous – and decided to discover Porto underneath our almost broken umbrella.
I’ve never been the kind of girl that spends hours and hours doing and perfecting her make up. I usually wake up 30 minutes before I have to be at the office so imagine how much time I have to put my make up on! However, these past few months I have been trapped in the “eyebrows on fleek” phenomenon! That’s why some months ago I decided to go shopping and find the best eyebrow products as I was just using a matte brown eye shadow until then.
I can picture myself living in this apartment. All snuggled up in between these huge monochrome cushions, catching up my with my favourite blogs and drinking one of the best drinks ever, hot chocolate. Here’s a new thing about me! You won’t ever see me preparing myself a cup of coffee or tea. I’m still a child in that sense 😉 However, back to what the post is about. As the title says, I really wouldn’t mind staying here for the rest of my life.
