Spring DIY: Beaded Bracelets

Spring DIY: Beaded Bracelets

Spring is in full swing where I live – the trees are flowering, the bees are buzzing and the weather is getting warmer. Inspired by the awakening of nature and the fact that I got rid of a large part of my jewellery last year, I came up with the idea of beading a couple of cherry-blossom-inspired bracelets.

Cherry Blossoms

Cherry Blossoms

How do you know that spring has finally arrived? The trees are flowering! It’s one of my favourite times of the year; I love to see all those colourful spots appearing everywhere. And that sweet smell!

I’ve wanted to visit Schwetzingen Palace Gardens (located in Southern Germany) during the cherry blossom season for years. Last Sunday, I finally decided to grab my camera and fight my way through the long lines and crowds of people. The place is gorgeous and buzzing with tourists throughout the whole year, but the flowering Japanese cherry trees attract an especially large number of visitors. Continue reading “Cherry Blossoms”

Things I am grateful for

Things I am grateful for

In the face of current world events, it is sometimes very difficult to keep a positive attitude towards our future. Additionally, our competitive society does its best to knock down our self-esteem by showing us how we should look and feel, what kind of clothes and make-up we should wear, and what kind of cars and electronic devices we should own. Considering this stressful context, it is very easy to feel overwhelmed nowadays. That is why it is all the more important to focus on the positive things we have in our life!

Travel Guide: Madeira

Travel Guide: Madeira

Hey, how have you been? Although it’s still pretty cold where I live, I can already see the first signs of spring approaching. It’s not as dark as before, the birds have begun to chirp in the morning, the snow has disappeared and the way the air smells has changed to a fresh and promising scent. Now that the winter is coming to an end, I have begun to think about where I want to spend my summer holidays this year. Last year, my boyfriend and spent 10 days on the beautiful island of Madeira.

Winter DIY 2: Snow Lights

Winter DIY 2: Snow Lights

Bringing light into the New Year, part 2!

Just as many of my friends and colleagues at the moment, I managed to catch the flu last week….however, the world events didn’t just pass me by. I don’t want to state any political opinion here, but I thought that these snow lanterns might bring a little bit of brightness back to our lives.

I actually found the idea for this DIY in the German magazine “Landlust” (January / February 2017), a rural lifestyle magazine. The beautiful thing about these snow lights is that after preparing the glass containers, you can basically watch the “ice crystals” grow every day.

Happy New Year 2017

Wishing you a happy New Year 2017! May the New Year bring you happiness, joy and peace.

My New Year’s Resolution for 2017
I personally plan to start the year with “Revolution – 31 Days of Yoga”, a challenge by my favourite YouTube yoga guru, Yoga With Adriene. I already participated in her “Yoga Camp – 30 Day Home Practice” last year and it did wonders to my body and mind. Thanks to her carefully planning the whole experience and gradually advancing in difficulty, I also noticed a considerable progress in my practice. As a bonus, this also motivated me to continue my yoga practice on a regular basis throughout the year. I will start the challenge in a couple of days and post an update after finishing it!
Do you have any New Year’s resolutions? I would love to hear them! Continue reading “Happy New Year 2017 & Follow Me on Bloglovin”

Visiting the Christmas Market in Basel, Switzerland

Last week, we went to the Christmas market in Basel, Switzerland. As a newbie to photography, it was quite difficult for me to take pictures there and I wasn’t sure whether I should publish them here or not. However, it was such a happy and fun evening that I wanted to share them anyway 🙂
