Gluecksgeist.com

Yes yes yes yes yes! I still can’t believe it but I upgraded and my website is now called Gluecksgeist.com. This is so exciting and I am so happy right now, so I just had to tell you. I also changed a few pictures on my blog like my profile picture and did a few other changes.

But the main question Why did I upgrade? So I wasn’t planning on doing this, this was quite spontaneous. Many bloggers upgrade there blog when they reached a certain number, which is totally fine, but I never had a number in my head. I also didn’t hate my blog name with the little wordpress.com at the end, I actually quiet liked it. But the main main thing why I really wanted to upgrade these last days was the storage space. I have a 128 GB memory card on my phone which is pretty much full already, so having only 3 GB here on wordpress was quite challenging. I love photos, I love taking them and sharing them with you. In my last posts I really had to think twice if I wanted to add another picture because of the storage space so I normally only added one or two. Now I can be a bit more photo-crazy which I missed so much. So that’s the main reason why I did it. Of course having my own name now is quiet cool too, but yeah that wasn’t the main reason for doing this.

I am super excited and happy with this little but big change and I hope you are too. Let me know what you think of my “new” website in the comments below.

Love, Glücksgeist

Happy birthday Glücksgeist | 2 years 

Today is my blog’s second birthday!! I can’t believe that I am blogging for two years now! That’s so crazy to me. Blogging became a huge part of my life and I am super happy that I decided two years ago that I want to start a blog.

My first post was about baking gingerbread men. So it’s only fair to celebrate this birthday by making some gingerbread men.

Processed with VSCO with a6 preset

I bought these gingerbread men cookie cutters two years ago and I only use them at the end of November so it always feels super special to use them. I am quiet happy with them. You never know how they turn out and technically they age with every year too so it’s okay that they have a few cracks.

Best posts:

sunflower shirt – diy

OOTD – stripe obsessed

My first bullet journal

I really wanted to name my top commenters here too. Thank you to everybody for leaving such nice comments, you’re amazing!

Are there any facts or statistics that you know that totally amaze or shock you?

I don’t think so…  At the moment I really can’t think of anything, maybe how high the bill of Disneyland has to be. 

What is the most beautiful place you have ever been to?

This is such a hard question. I really love the castle near where my grandma lives. It’s a really special place to me, but I also loved Finland and England so much when we went their on holiday.

Who in your family are you most like and why?

My mum. I look quiet like her and we definitely share a few similarities.

What quality do you most value in a friend?

Being sort of important to them.

Yes, I think so.

I really want to start studying next year.

Is there anything that you take for granted?

no, I don’t think so.

When was the last time you changed your mindset or belief on something?

Probably a few weeks ago. There’s always something I look at and then realised how wrong I was with it, that’s just learning I think.


The Sweet Blogger Award

The lovely Rebecca from blogtrainofidea nominated me for this award. I love her lifestyle blog where she talks about her favourite tv shows or what she’s currently loving. Be sure to check her out.

What is the most extreme thing you’ve ever done?

I don’t know if I’ve ever done something extrem… I jumped on one of these trampolines on the beach but that’s it.

What is the most extreme thing you want to do in your life?

Having a family.

Where do you get ideas for your blog posts from?

Just life to be honest. From different people, YouTube, Instagram, Pinterest, stuff like that.

Spend it with my family.

What did you want to be when you were little?

I wanted to study marine biology or become a ballet dancer.

What do you want to be now?

I want to study management and manage people I guess.

What is your biggest regret?

Maybe the last two years of school. I wished I learned more and had better grades but well, can’t change so I don’t really regret it.

Are you a cat or dog person? Or are you even both?

I am allergic to both.

If you could only buy from one clothes shop from now on, which shop would it be?

Well ASOS, but that’s not a shop so maybe New Look or Mango.

Where is your dream place to live?

Brighton or anywhere in Germany or Finland.

You deserve flowers

  • Tag the people who you appreciate and write a few lines telling them about it. Dedicate them a flower/s of your choice.
  • The people who you have tagged may now carry the tag forward or may wish not to. It’s entirely their choice.
  • There is no limit to the number of people you must tag or the number of flowers you must dedicate to a person. So go ahead, you might as well give them a garden.

The amazing Angela nominated me for this tag. I absolutely love Angela’s blog! She’s one of my favourites and when I saw her nominating me for this tag I got super excited. Thanks for your nice words Angela.

I am really not good with flower names or what they mean so I am keeping this quiet short.

Bea – You are the most positive, sweet, supportive and amazing person I met online. I truly think that being a teacher is what life has planned for you because you make people happy. Your flower is the sunflower (aka my favourite one). Sunflowers are firstly amazing flowers and so are you and they are super bright and because they are yellow (and they are called SUN-flowers) they remind me of the sun. The sun is what we need to live and the sun makes everybody so happy and so do you. xxx

Jamie – First of all I totally give you a sunflower too because you are positive, make me super happy and I feel like you’re really loving life (at least I think so). Sunflowers to me are really cool flowers and I would totally describe you as a cool person. I love your blog, your outfits and your style of going through life. Your totally an inspiration and deserve my favourite flower more than anything xx.

The lovely starring pamela nominated me for this award. First of all thank you so much for nominating me! I really love Pamela’s blog. One of my favourite posts of her’s has to be her fall decoration one. Really enjoyed reading this one.

I was also nominated for this award by the amazing Jamie from dontgiveajam. Jamie is one of my favourite bloggers. I love every single post of hers and I am always so excited when I see that she uploaded a new one, great blog Jamie!

How my blog started

I always loved the idea of having a blog. I loved reading blogs and I really wanted to start one myself. After I finished school I had some time so I thought why not start a blog right now and I am enjoying blogging ever since.

Two pieces of advice

Don’t care about the numbers. I blogged for one and a half years and barely anyone read my stuff. Blogging shouldn’t be about numbers and how to earn money with it, just have fun with it.

Engage with others. This is probably the most important thing to do. There are so many blogs out there so check them out, leave comments, tell them that you enjoyed reading their posts and eventually they will do the same with your stuff.
