Wisdom Wednesday #32

Writer’s block …

… that’s it.

No not, really. I’m sitting here, not knowing what to write. Don’t get me wrong, I already have ideas for the next Fashion Friday and Mix-Up Monday, but Wisdom Wednesday is kicking my butt right now.

Whenever I get writer’s block (fyi: I’m not only writing this blog, I also love to write poetry and songs and of course I have to do assignments for university) I turn up the music and let the inspiration in.

Music has always been my companion, wether it was playing instruments or listening to music – I did and still do it all. It has helped me find concentration and inspiration to continue writing.

Listen, sing and dance on!

By the way tonight’s blog post was inspired by the following song:

Prayer in C by Lilly Wood & The Prick and Robin Schulz

Mix-Up Monday #31

One week without …

… blogging. Last week I decided to stop blogging for a week. It was the perfect time for this little experiment, since I had just come back from my Paris, France vacation and a million little things to do at home.

I know that I don’t have hundreds of followers on this blog and I had to figure out if I want to continue writing here. Even though there weren’t any new posts for the last couple of days, people kept checking back and visiting the blog.

I want to say thank you, to all of you who read my bits and pieces about life and everything that comes with it. Even if I can inspire just one person or get them to think or laugh this blog pays off.

Thanks again and from this point on forward posts will come at least on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays.

Keep on blogging!

Wisdom Wednesday #31

Ready for take-off …

… or not? As promised on Monday here are my five things you should take on every vacation:

1. Passport

If you go on vacation to another country you definitely have to take your passport. If you travel within your home country a passport is not needed, but take an official photo ID with you. Whenever you take your passport, make copies of it and leave them with someone you trust, i.e. a family member or friend, in case you lose this valuable document.

2. Camera

Do I even need to say why? I think not.

3. Scarf

A plane journey can be a very cold adventure. Take a scarf with you in your carry-on luggage, so you don’t have to freeze. If you don’t need the scarf it’s a light and small item to carry with you and doesn’t take up a lot of space, but can save you on those cold and breezy days.

4. Flip-flops

If you travel on a budget, those just might be your savior. Especially in hostels I don’t want to know about everything that has touched the floors (particularly the ones in the bathrooms) and avoid direct contact with them.

5. Rain jacket

You always think vacation time will be full of sunshine and no clouds will dare to disturb your well-earned downtime. But things don’t always turn out the way you think (especially on city trips). My advice: pack a rain jacket – same logic as with the scarf – it doesn’t take up much space, but you will be grateful when the weather turns.

Now off to Paris!

Mix-Up Monday #30

Parlez-vous français …

… madame et monsieur? This week is all about France in my home. On Saturday I watched a French movie (in German) with a friend. Today I’m cramming some last minute French vocabulary into my brain and on Thursday I’m flying to Paris, France with my little sister. We are going to spend two days at Disneyland Paris and one day in the city exploring the sights and doing some shopping.

I am looking forward to this vacation for weeks now and am curious how it is to travel with my little sis alone. I am going to be the mastermind of this vacation – handling everything from the documents to packing and traveling. To not forget anything I am currently writing my to-do list and what to pack.

You guys will find out this Wednesday, what’s important to take on a trip from my point of view – so check back then!

Fashion Friday #30

Purse-uit of happiness …

… a long time coming. I’ve liked the Mango purses for the last couple of years, but never took the chance to buy one for myself. A couple of weeks ago I went to the mall with my mom and told her about it.

Today we went to the mall again, because one of my favorite stores (Blue Tomato) opened their doors there. And my dear mom surprised me by buying me the before mentioned purse. Her reason? Because she loves me and she told me she can always count on me.

Thanks so much!

Christmas comes but once a year …

… or does it? On that note: my grandma and my dog are back from their trip to the health resort. Enough reason to go out with the family and celebrate the return of our loved ones.

We live in such a fast-paced world, that we often forget the important things in life – our friends and family. So spend as much time with them as you can. It doesn’t even have to be anything fancy. Meet up for dinner, have a game night or go for a walk.
