A FRESH START


Let's take a little less and give a little more in 2017! Because true happiness comes from within us and what's a better feeling than knowing you're the reason for someone else's smile. Let's use this year to share happiness and throw kindness around.

"We rise by lifting others!"

Walking through life we're in charge of choosing to look at all the bad and terrible stuff that is happening around us OR we can look at the bright side and all the beauty and positivity. Even though we often don't realize it but we can have a positive impact on others and the world just by being the best version of ourselves that we can be. Because in the end what matters is h a p p i n e s s.

Page 2 of 365 - First Day of Snow!


It's amazing to live in a country where we are lucky enough to experience all the four seasons. But I must say that I absolutely love warm and sunny places (especially near the ocean) and I would love to live in a place like this one day because I feel like that's where I belong and feel most happy. But I can't deny that I would probably miss these cold snowy days if I would have summer all year around.

Today we had the first real snow this winter. What a beautiful start to this year, am I right? It just looked so magical, so my mum and I went for a walk near a little river. I'm not gonna lie that I was freezing after our little walk but I still made the most of this snowy day since this snow always melts way too quickly and then we're just left with this brown sticky mud on the streets ;)

I hope you all had a great start to this week :)

Cheers to 2017🍾🎊



Happy New Year everyone! 

Looking back at 2016 it was definitely breathtaking in so many ways. I guess every year has its ups and downs and so did 2016. But there were definitely so many amazing, unforgettable and precious moments which I will always have captured in my heart and this is to many more to come in 2017! Last year was a year where I had to figure out what I want to do in life (at least to a certain extent) which was for example changing my uni course and also following a less cruelty filled lifestyle. I have been vegetarian for around 6 years and realized following a vegan lifestyle doesn't only make me feel heaps better but is also better for the animals and our planet🌎🌿💚 So one of my new years resolutions is to keep doing this along with doing more sports. As well as to have an early start to the morning more often, to stop overthinking everything and to just do what feels right and makes me happy, to be more productive with school stuff, to take more photos and videos and to always look on the bright side and enjoy life!✨

What are some of your new years resolutions? And I realize that it doesn't have to be a new year to start something new but I still like the thought of a new year with new chances, new opportunities and new adventures.

Let's collect many great moments in 2017!

Invigorate your life - TRAVEL*


One thing I never want to lose is the desire I have for traveling. I want to see the world, explore the unknown, learn more about any and everything, grow as a person and collect moments and experiences. I'm really grateful for all the amazing places I have already been to and now I'm just really excited and can't wait for my next adventure which is going to be NEW ZEALAND! I always wanted to go there and I know that it's not the closest destination, in fact it's on the other side of our beautiful globe, but I somehow really felt drawn to New Zealand so in only a few more weeks a big dream of mine will come true. And remember: We will never regret the money we spend on traveling! So go out there, buy a plane or bus ticket or jump into your car to see what else is out there if you feel like that's what you want to do. Because life is too short to wait and to make excuses. 🌍✈️🌿

This was kind of the long introduction but just something I had in mind and something I wanted to share with you. I was actually going to talk about the beautiful piece of clothing you can see in the pictures below. Oh how I love grey shirts and quotes - so I guess the perfect combination for me. You can find the T-shirt and some more lovely items on Etsy (the shop is called MyknZLife). Maybe some of you still need a present for a travel lover or you treat yourself because why not?! It's Christmas time, am I right? :)

Have a lovely Christmas time everyone!

November 2016 #gratitudejournal

Happy 2nd Advent everyone! Light up the second candle, grab a cup of tea and enjoy some moments I want to share with you of November. To sum it up it was actually a month full of catch ups with friends and family. I met up with some old school friends (some of them I haven't seen for over a year now I think) so it was lovely to see them again and to talk about the good old times. Then it was also my sister's 23rd birthday which called for a surprise visit hehe. So my dad and I drove up north to the baltic sea to surprise visit her, eat cake and to spend some time at the beach (oh how I love the ocean!!). Speaking of surprise visits, my sister actually surprise visited me too the weekend before her birthday so we had a nice chilled weekend together, went to the movies, an art gallery and of course ate some good food.
Another highlight was also the Bastille concert I went to. They are honestly one of my favorite bands and the show was just amazing - definitely one of my favorite evenings of this month... well actually this year! And since I was already in Berlin for the concert I was also able to spend some quality time with my best friend. Unfortunately time always flies by like crazy when we're together.
Also the opening of the Christmas market and that it feels so chrismassy now is something I love and really enjoy. 
I hope you all had a month filled with many many great moments and I'm sure December will be just as good.

Vegan "Vanillekipferl" Recipe


You'll need:

250g flour (I used partly wheat and partly spelt flour)
2 small bags of vanilla sugar
1 pinch of salt
100g grounded almonds
200g margarine
75g sugar (I used partly normal and partly brown sugar)
powdered sugar

What you probably already noticed is that I most of the time go for pretty easy recipes and this one is no exception. So all you need to do now is to mix all ingredients together (make sure the margarine is room temperature and mainly soft) except for the powdered sugar and put them in the oven for 12-15 minutes at 175 degrees. Once they're done you want to make sure to give them a little bath in the powdered sugar when they're still warm. Enjoy :)

Count Stars Not Sheep*





Good morning world! Today I woke up on this chilly sunny winter morning and before I had some chai tea or got ready I made my bed. I think once you wake up with a positive thought in your head and a smile on your face you are already making the decision that it's going to be a good day and with that I also like to start my day organized by making my bed (except it's super early and I need to rush to uni, then this step must wait and I would rather have some breakfast of course haha).
I like to have a nice little (or not so little) pillow wall because who doesn't like lots of pillows am I right? So my new addition are two pillow cases from a shop called Bubbles.lt. I love the simple design and writing which is 100% my taste.
It's the middle of November, in my town the Christmas market already opens next Tuesday (I can't wait!!) and I think this might be a perfect present for someone you want to give a little joy at Christmas. ❄️🎄🎁

I hope you are all having a wonderful weekend!
