Disposable cameras | Glücksgeist 

Polaroid cameras are so on trend right now but as most of you know they are really expensive and the films for them are really expensive too. I love to use mine but there’s actually a great alternative to these cameras which so many people don’t use.

As you can read by the title I am going to talk about disposable cameras in this post. I wanted to do this post for ages but I had to wait until my camera got developed which took kind of forever but at the same time not, about one week. These cameras are incredible. You can find them at any drugstore these days and the are really affordable. If you buy them at DM they cost about 5 euros.

You can take 27 pictures with them and have to pay about 5 euros to get them developed which you can do straight at the shop. So all in all you spend 10 euros for 27 pictures, mostly because the sort out pictures that are black and went wrong, no shaky pictures though.

I think these cameras are amazing. The photos still look very unique, you don’t see them until they are developed which adds so much fun and also so much excitement. I often forget what pictures I took with my camera and it’s such a nice surprise to see all these memories again.

I often give these cameras as a present to my friends and they always love receiving them. So if you don’t want to spent so much money on a polaroid camera try these ones because as I said they are amazing!

I hope you enjoyed this post. As always let me know what you think of it in the comments below.

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.

Hanni und Nanni

When I was younger and still listened to cassette tapes I was absolutely obsessed with the St. Clare’s series. I had so many cassettes from this series and also a couple of books. I loved listening to the stories and reading them myself. Although I am quiet old now I still read the books every couple of months. To me these are the most special and most amazing books I’ve ever read.

In Spring and summer I read the Harry Potter series like crazy, but fall screams for the St. Clare’s series, in german called ‘Hanni und Nanni’. When I was younger I wanted to have a twin for so bad because I loved these two girls so so much.

I don’t know why but reading these stories is one of the most magical things to me. This probably sounds crazy to some of you, but no other book (except of ‘Lilli aus dem Doktorhaus’) makes me feel so calm and happy with myself like this one.

I had this moment where I read the second book series a couple of days ago and really missed the times where I listened to these stories on repeat and read them again and again and again. Although you shouldn’t live in the past I do miss these times and I wish we would still have more of these ‘old’ books.

I adore the language they used, the things they wore and the life they lived. Of course some changes are amazing but this old beautiful german language is just so so nice to read.

ABC cookies – Glücksgeist

I love ABC cookies. I eat them since I was a little child. Because of that I thought it was about time to make them myself and share the recipe with you.

You will need:

  • 2 egg whites
  • a pinch of salt
  • 50g sugar
  • 30g honey
  • 1 tbsp vanilla sugar
  • 1 tsp cocoa powder
  • a pinch of cinnamon
  • 100g flour

 

Whisk the egg whites with the salt until stiff peaks form. Then add the sugar and honey and mix carefully. After that add the vanilla sugar, cocoa powder, cinnamon and flour and mix until you have a creamy texture.

Fill the mixture into a piping bag and pipe letters of your choice. Bake them for 7 to 10 minutes at 180 degrees. Let them cool down and enjoy.

I hope you enjoyed today’s post. Do you know and love ABC cookies? Let me know in the comments below.
