Living: Interior Inspiration


Since we still need lots of time to get our new flat fully furnished and everything I'm not able to show you some pictures yet, but I love to search for inspirations on the web and thought it might be a nice idea to show them with you :)

Da wir nach wie vor noch ziemlich viel in unserer neuen Wohnung zu tun haben und auch noch kaum Möbel besitzen, in die man den Inhalt der sich stapelnden Kartons auspacken könnte, kann ich euch noch keine neuen Bilder zeigen. Bis es hier mal weiter vorrangeht, stöbere ich aber allzu gerne im Netz nach tollen Inspirationen was die Einrichtung und Gestaltung angeht, und da Inspirationsbilder immer was tolles sind, dachte ich, ich teile sie mal mit euch :)

 My favorites are definitely the mini bar in the suitcase (I'm going to build one for us as well), the loft kitchen with the brick wall (I had a brick wall in my former flat and loved it...maybe I can stick some bricks onto the kitchen wall in here...? haha) and the lovely tiles around the sink. What are yours?

Meine Favoriten sind definitiv die Kofferminibar - ich werde uns auch eine bauen, den Koffer hab ich schon, die Loftküche mit dieser wunderbaren Backsteinmauer - in meiner alten Wohnung hatte ich auch eine in der Küche und fand es so toll (vielleicht kann ich ja einfach ein paar Steine hier an die Wand kleben? :D) und die wunderschönen Fliesen um das Waschbecken....Was sind eure Favoriten?

Living: Our new home



Well, it's been a loooong time since I posted the last entry on my blog, I know. I had so much to do but to be honest, I can't believe it's almost half a year since I posted here...

But here I am now, back on the blog and I promise (I really do) I will post more often from now on. Thanks to all my readers who are still here, I won't disappoint you, haha. 

Since it's been half a year you haven't heard anything from me, there were lots of things happening but to keep it simple and short, I would like to tell you the biggest news - A. and I finally found a new flat!! It's been very hard, interminable and gruelling. 
All in all it took five months and in the end I was near to a mental breakdown, there were only 9 days left until we had to leave the old flat and still haven't found a new one.... I was kind of disenchanted and didn't really realised how much it bothered me until we got a suprising call from a really nice real-estate agent who told us that we could have the flat of our dreams - I cried some tears of joy and felt all the burden falling down from my shoulder. 

It really is the perfect flat, in the perfect area, in the perfect building. Everything's just perfect and I still can't believe it's our flat now :)

On ask.fm I've been asked a few times about the new flat, and yes, I am going to show you something, but it will take some time until the flat is furnished and decorated and everything, but I thought it might be interesting to see the process as well, so here are the first few pictures:

and last but not least - a thank you card for our real-estate agent :) 



So, I hope you are able to forgive my absence and enjoyed the first pictures of our new adorable home :)

thinking: over the years


When people ask me about my (optical) change over the years I often answer way too fast. I tell them I didn't change that much, that my hair still looks the same, that I still wear the same clothes I used to wear in the past, that my facial features are still the same, that my daily make up routine still is the same as it has been for ages. Superficially speaking it's not all lies. But when you look back at old pictures, you really see a difference in between all those years. It just happened recently that I scrolled through all of my facebook profile pictures, from the very beginning in 2009 until now, 2014. All in all it's been an overview over the last five years and the longer I stare at these pictures, the more changes I recognize. 

Five years ago I had loads of ugly piercings in my face, I wore clothes and accessories I would never ever wear again and although my hair color is still the same, I used to style it in a different way back then. I also see my facial features changing - not that I'm getting any wrinkles (yet, but hopefully it will take some time until then) but I can see that my expression now appears more grown-up than five years ago, I don't want to say by that I feel like a real adult now, and I don't think I will ever be, I still feel some kind of having this little child inside of me and yes, I'm proud of that. (You may remember Peter Maffay's "Nessaja"? If the lyric is not true then I don't know what ^^) 

To bring this monologue to an end, you should try and look through your old pictures too, it's always funny to find out about yourself. All in all I can say that I'm quite satisfied with how I look now and I do laugh about some of my old pictures ;) 

So, lean back, enjoy this journey through time (click to enlarge) and feel free to leave a comment about how weird I look on some of the pictures ^^
