Do you have an expensive hobby that eats up a lot of time and money? Or do you want to buy the latest iPhone?

My Autumn Reading List

allbooks1

It’s this time of the year again. The days are getting shorter, the weather colder, and you rather spend your evenings in your warm home than outside, don’t you? Well, at least that’s how I feel.

And besides taking long baths and watching my favourite series, autumn and winter are my favourite months for reading as well. To be fair, I love reading when I’m at the beach on my holiday – but that happens once a year and lasts for one book, max two.

The colder months instead, are perfect to lit a candle, grab a cup of tea and snuggle up in a cosy blanket to read a great book.

And because I live in Germany – and we have a whole lot of colder months – I have loads of books on my reading list! So let’s dive right in. (more…)

The Sunday Brunch #10+11: Birthday week and car boot sale

Some of you might have noticed that there wasn’t a Sunday Brunch post last week. First of all, I’m really sorry for that! It was my birthday weekend and I didn’t really have much time to write and didn’t wanted to quickly write something down just for the sake of it. So I decided to skip one Sunday Brunch and give you an extra large edition this week.carboot12 (more…)

Skincare tips and products for the Change of seasons

It’s October guys! Fall has officially arrived and winter is just around the corner. Don’t you love it when you go outside and the air is crispy but the sun is shining? Or wearing all your lovely coats and boots again? Or taking a long relaxing bath when it’s dark and cold outside?

I’m always super excited for autumn. I love to switch my home decoration, my wardrobe, and my makeup and make it all autumn-y.

And as the seasons change, so does my skincare regimen.

During summertime I have combination skin – normal skin with a tendency to get (more or less) oily on the t-zone and a bit dry on the lips and cheeks. (more…)

How to deal with co-workers

In your twenties, you are most likely going to start working. It could be a side job or your first full time job – either way you’ll find yourself faced with a lot of different people, and a wide variety of co-workers.

In contrast to your private life, you can’t choose with whom you spend your time with at work. Colleagues are simply there, and if you like them or not, you still have to work with them on a daily basis. Based on my experience there are 10 types of colleagues that you will need to learn to work with – here’s a little characterization on each and tips on how to handle them. (more…)

How To Survive The First Days In A New Job

psAs a twenty-something you see yourself faced with a lot of big life decisions, life changes and life challenges. One of those challenges is deciding which career path you want to follow. And once you have decided on that, the journey doesn’t stop there. You have to attend a school, get your degree, and after graduation it is time to apply for jobs and go to job interviews.
If you’ve managed to take all of those steps successfully, you are now ready to start your career.In my five years in the working environment I’ve had quite a few experiences with “first days at work,” whether it was my own first day or the first day of a new colleague or employee. And in my experience, the first days or even weeks at a new job, whether it is your very first job or you just changed companies, are the most important and most exciting ones.

The Sunday Brunch #9: My neck, my back

This is going to be quite a short Sunday Brunch due to this weeks level of sickness and therefore uneventfulness.

I actually had a lot of things on my to do list this week:

  • finish 3 posts for this blog
  • draft some new posts
  • finish reading the “blogger bootcamp”
  • clean up the flat (there are some messy drawers that require my attention)
  • go to Ikea for a lamp and a new dresser (and the mandatory pack of candles)

Unfortunately I couldn’t check off any of this points. (more…)

20 Things I learned in my twenties

In about two weeks it’s my birthday, and I’ll be 26… errr – when exactly did this happen?! But to be fair, I always looked forward to my end twenties.

In my early twenties, I’ve always imagined myself as a much more grown up and confident woman at the age of 26. And little 20-year-old me was right – I am more confident and a little bit more grown up!

Well, it’s not a 100% how I imagined it (where is my house, with the garden and the dog?!) but still close enough. Especially on a personal level, I’ve gained quite some experiences.

The Sunday Brunch #8: Productivity and “Me” Time

Last weekend I found myself in productive blogger-mode thanks to a boost of motivation by Pinterest. I drafted 6 posts and thought it would be a great idea to post at least 5 times this week, just to see how it works.

Since those posts were all on draft, I had to do some editing every evening of this week and I really enjoyed seeing my productivity come to life. It was also pretty great to see how all the different posts went down, and which has been the most popular.

#100happydays
