I got super lucky with having the most amazing mum ever. She always gets us something for Easter and she kept saying that she’s so exciting to see my reaction when I open my present. I had no idea what she got for me and I was really excited but I so did not have a clue.
I really wanted to do a post like this for ages now. I love photography and taking photos is so much fun to me. I went shopping a few days ago and saw these cool coloured filters for your Polaroid camera. I got them in the end and decided to use them on my phone when we were going for a nice walk. I think these photos turned out so cool and amazing, so I hope you like them.
Last year I decided to create an advent calendar for my mum. I tried to do this in the past multiple times but always failed after a few days. I didn’t fail last year and my mum loved her calendar so much that I wanted to create another one for her this year.
I was thinking about using the old calendar again until I went on Pinterest and found the cutest gift idea. This person created unicorns out of toilet rolls to put them on the table or to fill them with stuff to give them away as a present. I loved the idea and so I decided to make a calendar out of toilet roll.
I love unicorns, I think most of you know that. My mum knows that I love them and because of that we are constantly sending each other the unicorn emoji on WhatsApp. And after sending thousands of them my mum loves unicorns too. We even got a unicorn cushion and it’s the best thing ever.
I collected twenty-four toilet rolls over the weeks and decorated them until they looked like cute little unicorns. I had so much fun doing this and styled each unicorn a little different.
I knew straight-away what I wanted to put in this calendar. Of course I can only go for smaller things because a toilet roll doesn’t give much space to put things in it, but I am really happy with what I got. I only need 6 little things until the calendar is finished, but I still have a few days so it should be fine.
I can’t describe how excited I am to give this calendar to my mum. She doesn’t have a clue that I am doing a calendar again this year and I just can’t wait to see what she thinks of this one.
I didn’t want to show you everything I got my mum because I don’t want to ruin the surprise and accidentally show her the pictures of the things, but I am going to upload each present I got her on my Instagram account in December as a little advent-insta-calendar-thing, which I am really excited for.
As always let me know what you think of this DIY in the comments below.
I love blogging about beauty, fashion, baking and random things but I feel like my blog isn’t as personal as it should be. So today I am doing a ‘Get to know me’ tag to share some things about me. I basically just typed get to know me tag into google and chose 25 questions which I am going to answer now.
Are you named after anyone?
No, but my parents wanted to call me Katharina first. My cousin was born a few weeks before me and got named Katharina so my parents decided to name me Ann-Kathrin and I love this name so much more.
When was the last time you cried?
I think it was last week or the week before. Can I also just say that I can’t watch any emotional film, or video because I cry immediately.
Do you have kids?
I am 20 and I feel quiet old but no, not yet, let’s talk about it in years.
If you were another person, would you be a friend of yourself?
I hope this doesn’t sound weird but yes, I think so. I am a person who really cares about other people and especially family and friends which can be really good but sometimes also a little much.
Do you use sarcasm a lot?
I had a phase where I used it like crazy and felt like it was getting a little bit annoying so I don’t use it that much but I do use it.
What’s the first thing you notice about people?
I always look if they smile back if I smile. I don’t really look at something specific just how they act when I see them or introduce me to them.
What is your eye color?
Blue. I love my eye colour and I am so happy I am sharing it with my entire family.
Scary movie or happy endings?
I hate scary movies. I can’t watch them without getting night mares. So happy endings for sure.
I don’t really have a favourite smell to be honest. I am probably weird but I don’t love just one specific smell or scent. Love when the house smells like baking though.
What’s the furthest you’ve ever been from home?
I think when I was on an exchange programme in Italy for 10 days or England for 10 days, one of those and I missed my family like crazy. I love being around them and especially on these two exchange programmes I felt really uncomfortable, but it still was an amazing experience.
Do you have any special talents?
No. I can bake a cake if that counts.
Where were you born?
In Germany and I still live there.
What are your hobbies?
Baking, blogging, reading, watching YouTube videos, going to the cinema and Theater and spending time with my family.
Do you have any pets?
I am allergic to dogs and cats so no, but when I was younger we had three rabbits.
Do you have any siblings?
Yes. I have a little sister and an older brother and I love them both so much, for most of the time ;).
