Happy Friday | V16.38

Happy Friday | V16.38

This week just flew by. I cannot believe it's already Friday, but I am really looking forward to the weekend. We've got some things planned. A trip to a nearby fair unless it rains, my girl needs new glasses and I need to go shopping for a birthday present. Although it will probably be a weekend for relaxing, I am looking forward to getting a few things off my list.

This week has been really good. I feel accomplished and got a lot done, both at work and also at home. I can't complain, so here are a few of my happy moments this week:

1. Winning concert tickets at work! Yay.

2. Watching the sunrise in the morning and the sunset at night.

3. Happy Mail.

4. A fresh new bottle of my favorite perfume.

5. The Path on Amazon Prime (has anyone seen it?)

6. Dinner with a girlfriend - good times

7. Getting a massage - HEAVENLY

8. Usher's "Crash" - enjoy

9. Puppy snores next to my bed

10. A bouquet of flowers just because.

I hope your week was wonderful as well - what were some of your HAPPY MOMENTS?

Life Lately

Life Lately
Now that we're back in the normal flow of things since school started last week (first day of school pictured above), life has become a bit more busy. But in a good way. Everybody has got their own busy back and the day just seems to run more smoothly.

School seems to be great so far - Leonie even brought home her first "A" of the school year - can we just keep them coming, please! haha No, but really, she's a great student, she just needs a little push here and there sometimes. But that's ok, after all she's still a kid and kids should be able to actually be kids, right! I mean, life will get harder at some point and I often find myself dreaming about those careless days way back when. So why not let her enjoy life like a kid should be enjoying life, as long as she takes care of her chores and becomes a decent person. What more can you ask for?

We've been enjoying the last days of summer, strolling through the city, taking the pup on long evening walks. I have been getting back into the swing of knitting and cannot stop. I have started another shawl, the one pictured above is ready to be blocked soon. And I am already planning the next project.

What have you been up to in the past few weeks? Anything exciting going on?

How I Feel In 5 Words.

How are you?


This week was off to a way better start than last one. The temps went down and we even had some much needed rain last weekend - finally it's starting to feel more like fall. I have to be careful and really enjoy these next few weeks, because my favorite season will be gone in no time. 

I feel pretty great this week. I am a total different person when the temps are lower and I can wear a cardigan and maybe even a scarf! The sun came back out today, but the temps weren't anything close to last week's and I have a feeling they won't get back up that high this year anymore. 

So, here's how I am today:

1. Grateful.

2. Understood.

3. Excited.

4. Wonderful.

5. Fortunate.

How much a week can change, right?! 

Now, how are you today? I'd love to hear!

How To Relax After A Long Day



(image source)
 
We all know that feeling of "the weight of the world on our shoulders" after a long day. Life is busy, calendars are filled to the brim and we often forget to slow down and take a break. However, it is important to spend some quality time outside of our tasks to improve our performance and to take care of our health!
 
When I get home after a long day at work, my work isn't done just yet. There is dinner to be cooked, laundry to be done, maybe some cleaning here and there, homework needs to be checked and so on and so forth.
 
And finally, once all my "tasks" have been taken care of and my to-do-list for the day is checked off, I allow myself to take some time off to enjoy some me-time just for ME. Here are some things I like to do to unwind.
 
- Put on comfy clothes.
 
- Listen to music over my headphones - just for myself
 
- Light a scented candle or turn on my oil diffuser
 
- Get my knitting out and knit a few rows
 
- Flip through the pages of a magazine
 
- Take the pup for an evening walk
 
- Drink a cup of tea - I enjoy trying new blends
 
- Sometimes I call a good friend just to catch up
 
- Maybe I'll pour myself a glass of wine
 
- During the summer I like going out into my garden
 
- Read a chapter of my new book
 
- Taking a nap can be super relaxing
 
There are so many different things you can do to relax when life gets tough. Maybe you enjoy taking a hot bath (me, not so much), or you find cleaning and tidying your home soothing. Whatever feels best for you, is best for you.
 
I would love to know some of the things you do to relax after a long day!

Happy Friday | V16.37

Happy Friday | V16.37

Oh man, this week's been a real struggle. First I had this horrible migraine, then the mister got sick with the stomach flu, school started and back to school shopping was in order (we get our supply lists on the first day of school) and then summer decided to come back full force giving us temps higher than during the entire summer. Phew…This Friday is really, REALLY welcome!

But these past few days have definitely had their happy moments and here are some of them:

1. Sleeping with open windows.

2. New sneakers for fall.

3. Purchasing concert tickets for my girl (Shawn Mendes).

4. Her reaction to it - happy tears might have been involved.

5. Caring co-workers.

6. A really successful employee performance review.

7. Puppy breath.

8. Popcorn.

9. Upgrading my Spotify account to premium (family version). finally

10. Diet coke (I know, I know, but sometimes I just need one).

And? How was your week? Was it a good one or did you struggle as well?

Fall Fashion Inspiration

Rose Gold


I love fall and I love fashion. Those of you who know me, know that I love my cardigans. I cannot wait to finally dress "properly" again. For me that means wearing different layers, booties, loafers or sneakers (I have recently re-fallen in love with the Internationalist from Nike) and scarves and, well - a cardigan.

I have been all about the darker reds, especially this maroon or burgundy, lately and who hasn't fallen for rose gold this past year. Gucci Bamboo is one of my newer go to scents for special occasions and in my opinion one can never go wrong with Chanel cosmetics.

My style is more of a subtle one - for me it's more in the details and the colder season is perfect for showing just that. Don't you think?

What has been one of your favorite colors fashion-wise lately? I'd love to know!


Happy Thursday - we're almost there! xxx

How I Feel In 5 Words.

How I Feel In 5 Words.

Can you believe it's Wednesday again? I mean, seriously, where is time going? It has been a very hot week here in southern Germany temp-wise. We've constantly been in the high 80's or low 90's in the past few weeks and I can clearly say that I am more than ready for fall temperatures! Puh-lease!

This week wasn't off to a very great start. Monday greeted me with a migraine. They seem to be haunting me lately. I blame it on the humid and hot weather though and have high hopes for less of them once fall finally arrives.

So, this is how I am today:

1. Better.

2. Relieved.

3. Recovered.

4. Hopeful.

5. Content.

I really hope your week was off to a better start than mine and that you are well!

Tell me: How Are You Today?
