Proud to be a … |Glücksgeist

I am a huge Harry Potter fan. I love the world J.K.Rowling created and I re-read the books on a regular basis. Although I read the books multiple times already, I’ve never read them in English before. I own two books in English, but what made me really want to start reading them in English was the Sorting Quiz on pottermore.

My childhood cassettes | Glücksgeist

A few weeks ago I got a few Hanni und Nanni (St. Clares) books because I really wanted to read the stories again. Aas a child I didn’t care much about the books, it was all about the cassettes, so I was really sad that I got rid off them. You can listen to the stories on Spotify but that’s just not the same and I really want to show my children these cassettes and make them listen to these stories in an old school way, so I got a few cassette tapes on eBay.

I was searching ebay for a few days and then found a pack of them for a really good price and ordered them. They arrived a little late and I was panicking that they wouldn’t come but when I opened the parcel I was the happiest child in the entire world.

I listened to these stories every single day on my cassette recorder. When a cassette got broken I was so obsessed, but I also loved fixing them when the string got tangled up. There was something so satisfying about that.

I had one story on CD and I never listened to it because I hated that it wasn’t a cassette. Which is so funny because after a few years I got rid off all my cassettes because CDs were so much cooler and now nobody is using any of these things anymore.

Did you listen to cassette tapes and do you miss them? Let me know in the comments below.

October favourites

I can’t believe it’s the last day of October already. The time really is flying buy, crazy. But this means it’s time for my monthly favourites and I have some really good ones.

ASOS

I ordered quiet a few things from ASOS this month. They really have some amazing pieces at the moment and I just had to get them. I was also buying a lot of Christmas presents already. I love to be prepared and yes my first Christmas present I bought back in September.

I am so obsessed with these pants and my new pink shirt. I can’t stop wearing these two things and I am just so in love with them. Really happy you love them too.

I really bought the most amazing purse this month. I was on the hunt for a good but cheap one and I found the perfect one, couldn’t be happier with it.

I also did something really fun this month. I chatted with ASOS this month. I had a question and they helped me out which was really cool and so much fun to do. Highly recommend checking this out if you need any help with something.

Baking

I really enjoyed baking this month a lot. I got the cookbook ‘Tanya bakes’ for my birthday this month and I was super obsessed with it. I tried quiet a few new recipes and I love them so so much. My family was super happy with them too, so that’s really nice.

Beauty

I really got into wearing my foundation this month. In summer I only wore powder and now I am all about foundation again. I also found the most amazing hand cream. My mum got me a similar one before and I really loved using it so much but this one is pink so I just had to get it and I am obsessed with it. I have really dry skin and this cream helps a lot with it.

I also loved using my face-brush-cleaner-thing-y this month. It is so much fun to use and it really helped me with my dry skin. I also loved the sephora face sheet mask my mum got me from Italy. It’s such an amazing hydrating mask and I wish I would have hundreds of it left.

A few weeks ago I tried the new Zoella range and really liked it. I forgot a little bit about the products but really fell in love with them again this month. I’ve been using the shower gel and scrub like crazy and I really love the scent again.

And I also used my Rituals scrub I got from my brother for my birthday like crazy. Rituals products are just amazing and super nice. And I fell in love with my brown NYX lipstick I got from my mum. Such a nice shade and I’ve been constantly wearing it.

Books

When I was younger I used to read and listen to the stories of this book series called ‘Hanni und Nanni’ (St. Clare’s series) like crazy. These books mean so so much to me and I enjoy reading them so much. It really takes me back to my childhood and they really calm me down and make me feel really good.

I also read ‘Mary Poppins’ this month. I got the first book for my birthday from my amazing mum. I had a huge Mary Poppins – obsessions this year and reading this story was just super nice.

Fashion

I started wearing socks in sandals this month. I know what you are thinking right now, really? But I really enjoyed this style in October. I loved the look of it and it was just so much fun to create different outfits with my loved socks and sandals.

Food

Because of Tanya’s baking book I ate quiet a few pistachio baking goods. They tasted amazing and my mum and I love pistachios so we really enjoyed them a lot.

I also ate so much Müsli together with my almond milk this month. I really forgot about almond milk but I fell in love with it again and I’ve been eating it like crazy together with my chocolate Müsli.

And I’ve been drinking a lot of juices paired with some sparkly water. It tastes so good and is kind of healthy, am I right? 😉 And I’ve been drinking a lot of tea because it got really really cold.

Films and series

Spiderman homecoming. This movie is so hilarious and just amazing. I wanted to watch it for quiet a while and I finally did it at the beginning of October. I loved it so much that I was watching it like crazy. Such a fun movie.

I am not really into casting shows and stuff like that but one show I just absolutely love to watch is Germany’s next Topmodel. I am watching it for years now and it’s such a good show to play in the background whilst doing stuff.

The originals season 4 was just unreal. I absolutely loved it, like so so much. Summer Fontana was the cutest child ever and she did such a good job. I am really excited for season 5 and so sad that it’s going to be the last one.

And I started binge-watching the second season of Quantico this month too. I nearly finished it and enjoyed watching it.

The best movie I watched this month was the last movie of ‘Fack ju Göhte’. I expected a lot and my sister and I really liked the movie. It was so much fun to watch it together and they really did a great job. So sad it’s the last one.

Music

The vamps, matoma – staying up

Sunrise avenue – I help you hate me

Grace Vanderwaal – Escape my mind

Moana – How far I’ll go

Noah Cyrus – Stay together

Random

I’ve been really pink obsessed this month. Although it’s fall I just loved the colour pink so much more than any berry shade. Pink clothes, pink photos, just anything pink.

I really enjoyed watching Instagram stories this month too. I loved watching the story of Claire Holt and Juleslw. Claire shared videos from the set of the originals and Julia just posted everyday things.

Aspyn Ovard also shared some great stories and some amazing vlogs this month. I really enjoy watching her videos and was really happy with her content this month.

 

As always let me know what you’ve been loving this month in the comments below.

My cosy time

A Sunday screams for some cosy time and I love these kinds of Sundays where you stay in your PJ’s all day. I thought it would be quiet nice to share what things I like to do on a really cosy SunDay.

No make up but face mask time

Of course I don’t wear any make up on my cosy days. But I love to do face masks. There’s just something so nice about pampering yourself. I don’t always do a face mask on Sundays but mostly. I alternate between them so it always change which one I am using at the moment.

Staying in your PJ’s all day

As I said, on a really cosy day you just have to spend the whole day wearing your PJ’s. But there’s a difference between them. I have quiet a few PJ’s and I love all of them, but the ones which make me feel the most relaxed and cosy are my Snoopy pyjamas.

Since I was a little child I always wore Snoopy pyjamas. I love Snoopy and the whole peanuts gang so much, so on a cosy day it has to be a Snoopy one.

Watching cosy series and films

Gilmore Girls is probably the most cosy series that exists. I love watching it and it just makes me feel so relaxed and happy. And because there are quiet a few seasons you can spend your whole day binge-watching them.

I also love to watch Hanni und Nanni (St. Clare’s) on these kind of days. I absolutely loved the books when I was younger and I still love them now. When I watch the movies now they take me back to my childhood and it’s just such a nice feeling.

Harry Potter is another cosy movie for me. Especially the third movie is one of my favourites to watch. They turn a Sunday into such a good one.

And I love to watch Formel 1 (formula 1) on Sundays. It is so relaxing to me and the perfect Sunday tv show. My dad is watching it for years now and I always saw little snippets of it too.

Reading a book

I am a big bookworm and although I love watching movies I just have to read a book on a cosy Sunday. At the moment I am reading the Harry Potter series again, but I also love to read old books to give me that cosy feeling. As I said the St. Clare’s series is one of my favs and I also have books from my mum when she was younger and I love reading them too. There’s just something so nice about holding and reading a book with a story to it.

Drinking a hot beverage

In summer I tend to drink just cold drinks, but I really love drinking tea. Because it’s getting colder now where I live I can finally pull out my stack of tea and start drinking tons of tea again. There’s just something so nice about reading and drinking a hot drink at the same time.

Filling in my bullet journal

There’s nothing better than being creative and I discovered my love for bullet journals. I love creating new pages and because it is so relaxing and calming, I love to do it on my cosy days.

Listening to music

I always listen to music but on Sundays I tend to go for more chilled songs. I also love to listen to songs I haven’t heard in ages or check out new playlists and songs.

Eating cookies

I don’t know why but eating cookies on a Sunday is just the perfect thing to do. Eating cake is also fine, but I just love having a nice Sunday-snack. My favourite cookies are chocolate-coconut ones. I eat them for years and whenever my mum surprises us with them, we are so excited.
