my evening routine 🌝 🌃

Ever since I shared my morning routine with you a few weeks ago, you’ve been dying to hear about my evening routine as well, right? … Right? … Hello?! 😬

My ~ evenings ~ usually start at around 6pm – that’s when I try to be home from work, or call it a day when I’m working from home. The last thing I do before getting in relaxation mode, is clearing away my work stuff, meaning I organise my desk so that I can start again fresh and with a tidy space the next day. This helps me to a) stop thinking about work (because it’s literally out of my sight) and b) to wind down a bit, since organising my space and clearing away things helps me relax. 🐭

books i’ve read in may 🌞📚

It’s the end of June as I’m writing my “May Books Blogpost” – whoopsy. Summer and high temperatures like we’ve been having them in Berlin lately, always really slow me down. Where I’d usually be buzzing with energy and ideas, I feel like an uninspired blob as soon as the thermometer hits >29°C. So you might get the June books blogpost in December, who knows. Although summer seems like the perfect time to read, the opposite is the case for me. I just want to lie down, drink iced tea and close me eyes, as my brain turns to mush in the heat. I read quite a bit in May—but don’t expect too much from next month, just saying. 😏
As always: The order I’m talking about the books is not a rating.

my morning routine ☀️

A few weeks ago I asked on instagram, what blogposts you wanted to read from me and I got “morning/evening routine“ as one of the many responses – thank you for the input by the way! I was a bit surprised because apparently you (or at least some of you) are interested in me as a person – what a concept, I know. 😂 Anyhow. I have my morning routine for you today, which isn’t overly exciting, but just my actual (almost) daily morning routine ya know. 🤷🏻‍♀️✨

sweet n salty granola 🍓✨

A few weeks ago someone on instagram requested a new granola recipe – but without dried fruits. As you all know, I love experimenting and creating new recipes – … but hardly ever manage to follow existing ones. 😬
So I went to my trusty organic store, stocked up on oats, almonds, hemp seeds, chia seeds and a lot more and came up with a sweet n salty granola recipe which I’m a bit proud of, tbh. 👧🏻
I actually made it up as I went along, which is my usual modus operandi when it comes to cooking – and took notes so that I could share it with you.
I hope you don’t feel put off by the “salty“ – I only used one teaspoon of salt for roasting the sunflower seeds and the salty taste barely comes through. But when it does, it’s really … harmonious (?) and goes well with the slightly sweet taste of the caramelized almonds. Anyway, let’s do this, shall we?

The Good Life Lives in Brighton – ein Food- und Feel-Good-Guide 🌈✨

Von Visit Brighton wurde ich auf eine Pressereise eingeladen – dieser Blogpost ist nicht gesponsert.

Wie Alice auf dem Weg ins Wunderland kommt man sich vor – schon beim Verlassen des Bahnhofs in Brighton. Gewissermaßen „down the rabbit hole“ geht es von dort die Queens Road runter Richtung Meer, während rechts und links der Straße, genau wie in den abzweigenden Gassen, das bunte Leben der Stadt schillert. Mal pastellig wie Schaumzucker, dann wieder schreiend schrill – als hätte jemand Farbbrillanz und Sättigung raufgedreht – macht Brighton seinem Namen alle Ehre.

make-up favourites – travel edition ✈️✨👛

A few weeks ago, over on instagram, I got asked about my favorite make-up products. And since I was in the midst of packing for a short trip recently, I thought why not combine the two and talk about the make-up products I take with me when traveling – … because you usually only take favourites away with you anyway, right?
