Summer Summary Vol. 01

August 23, 2015

Hi There!

Happy Sunday everyone! Dang, I am so sorry for the silence – I am absolutely overwhelmed by the fact that I need to give in my second master thesis in 5 weeks so whenever I have time to write, I desperately need to work on my thesis instead of blogging. Which makes me really sad as I have so many cool and crazy post ideas in my draft section!! However, I don’t want to publish anything half-assed so I rather don’t publish anything at all. I can’t wait to finish this hell of thesis writing so that I’ll have time for my most favorite hobby again!
To break the silence at least a bit, I thought I give you some general favorites of mine for a change – what I loved to watch, listen and sing to and where to spend my time for the past summer months.

When you studied as much as I did abroad, you will be losing some friends along the road. I never really thought much about it but in the past weeks, I just realized that I lost many friends. Friends who didn’t contact me once now that I was settled into the new country. Friends, who made the biggest fuss about me leaving them behind and then I never heard from them again. Although I am not sad to lose these people (they don’t seem to be real friends anyway), the whole situation (having fewer people to turn to) gave me a lot to think about these past weeks.
I was talking about a colleague of mine about having nothing exciting to watch – she completely hooked me on Sense8, a netflix original series that has a very unique story line about 8 strangers whose identities connect through mysterious circumstances – a plus is that the series makes full use of the lgbt community and explores gender idenities at a deeper level than most other TV formats do. Very original and lots of action after the first 2-3 slower episodes, a big favorite of mine! (Oh and, gorgeous music all the way!)


I’m a big fan of The Vampire Diaries but when Spotify played me this song I had no idea that the singer was actually one of the actors, Michael Malarkey (Enzo)! I had no idea he had such a great voice, I only recognized him when looking at the images on Youtube. Love to listen to this when sitting on my balcony at night watching the stars when I cannot fall asleep.

This is the song that I always listen to when I take the bus to my morning shifts at 4 in the morning. I absolutely love the energy this song gives me when I have to work at a time where basically 95% of the city is still sleeping. Sia has been a long favorite of mine for 10 years or so.

New In
My boyfriend moved out of his family’s place when he was 19 – since then, his place hasn’t changed much. Since he is no big fan of interiors, our place looked quite clinical and cold for my taste. Now that I am back and officially moved in (although I lived in his place for years already.. but now my name is on the door too!) I am making it my objective to make this a more comfortable place with furry carpets and lighter colors! So on our recent trip to Ikea I got the classic looking Hemnes bookshelf and a beige colored furry rug.
I also finally received my first ever Tosowoong haul! So far I only used the propolis essence but I do like it a lot. Can’t wait to finish my COSRX AIO snail cream so that I can use the Super Aqua Cooling Gel <3
With me desperately awaiting the beginning of fall (did I mention that I am not a summer child yet..`?) I am spicing my daily latte with either pumpkin or a lot of maple syrup! I can’t wait for the fall promotion to start at my workpace so I can enjoy all the autumn flavors again! Yes, I know it’s still summer but I don’t care for 35°C, I want my maple. Now. (I also started buying scarves… I have a problem.)

Sense8 Season 1, Episode 2 – wedding dinner, no spoilers! Usually not a fan of Indian music or Bollywood-esque things, but this scene gives me chills and a good feeling whenever I watch it. It’s been my mood lifter on crappy days.

I hope I will be up to speed soon with finishing my thesis and having more time for my blog again! Thank you everyone for your supportive messages and for believing in me 🙂 Enjoy your weekend! xx

Lots of love,
