Hey guys, either you're already living in 2015 (sending love to my Australian friends) or your party preparations are in full swing now. Unfortunately I didn't have much time to write a new post and look for "review 2014" photos since I have been studying a lot the last couple days.
Looking back at 2014, my year has been pretty amazing and quite turbulent. I traveled as much as always (Mallorca, Barcelona and New York), I studied hard and spent a lot of time with my boyfriend, family and friends as usual. The New York trip or my summer in Spain, as well as my day in Tomorrowland were definitely some highlights this year.
How about resolutions... I had quite a few last year and don't think I really stuck to them so I might just start 2015 without any resolutions and hope that destiny plays in my favor as it always did, haha ;-)
Anyway, I wish you all a marvelous start of 2015! May all your resolutions come true! May you all be blessed with health, love, happiness and success and don't forget... Life should be your favorite adventure ;-)

Ho ho ho, fellas! Hope you all had such happy holidays like I did! Isn't the Christmas time simply wonderful? You get to eat tons of awesome food, you can relax with your family all day, plus you get rewarded with lovely presents, haha. I always enjoy being with my family, especially because I don't get to see my folks very often since my university is like 4 hours away from my parents' place.
Today's post is all about our Christmas celebration. We went to see the "Weihnachtsmarkt" (Christmas fair) in Lübeck, a beautiful city in Northern Germany that is famous for it's wonderful Christmas market. Plus I got to hang out with my whole family which I love! After all the university stress I needed some down time. My exam phase hasn't even started yet, so I still gotta study a lot now after the holidays. Anyway, I hope you all had a beautiful Christmas with your family and friends! Enjoy the pics ;-)

Hey guys, I guess you're all home by now enjoying the time with your families to the fullest. I just got to my home town last night and I'm already super relaxed! Drinking hot wine and chatting with my mommy, watching TV shows with my sisters or cooking with my dad - family time is simply wonderful, especially around Christmas!
Today's post is an outfit post again, this time you get to see a glam New Year's Eve outfit. I'm not sure yet what I'm gonna wear on NYE cause I bought this awesome fake fur jacket à la Cruella De Vil two days ago, so I might just wear that one with a pretty dress or so. Anyway, I put this outfit together for you, so you get some inspiration - what to wear on New Year's Eve?
I like the combo of the "all black everything" look with gold and red lips, it's kinda cool and elegant at once. The leather skirt makes the body with the low-cut back look a little more dressy, just like the black ankle boots with the golden detail. I put on a bold golden necklace and red lipstick to add a little glamour. I think it's a pretty comfy and chic outfit, plus it keeps you a little warmer than just a short dress ;-)
Hope you like the outfit and have some marvelous Christmas days with your family!
Lots of kisses from Germany and Merry Christmas, xoxo

Hey my lovely readers and fellow bloggers, how's it going? Are you all having a nice Christmas season?
I'm currently trying to escape all the school stuff in my head by blogging more ;-)
Picking photos and editing them plus writing texts the way I like is simply relaxing and distracting me from what I actually have to do for university, haha. My mom's gonna come over this weekend to pick me up and take me home for a Christmas break, so I'm gonna have some family time far away from university. I still have to study during the holidays though, ugh!
Anyway, today you get to see loads of inspiring Christmas pics I took during the last few years in Germany and NYC. Some stars, some decoration, some candy and holiday glam...
If you live in Germany or only visit you should definitely check out some wonderful Christmas markets, such as the Dortmunder Weihnachtsmarkt, where I took some of these pics. It's one of the biggest markets in Germany during this season and always worth a visit. Have a hot chocolate or "Glühwein", enjoy some traditional German food or buy some thoughtful presents for your loved ones - there's a lot to do on Christmas markets!
If you happen to spend Christmas in New York make sure to swing by the huge tree at the Rockefeller Center, go ice skating in Central Park or Bryant Park, and check out the amazingly decorated shop windows on Fifth Avenue - the city is a true winter wonderland in December!
Hope you like the photos and have a wonderful Christmas season! xoxo
