Have you had a merry little Christmas?

Hey Gals! (/^▽^)/

How did you spend this year's Christmas?

I hope you had a merry time with your loved ones!
What did you get as a gift? ♥
Or did you receive many gifts?

As for me I couldn't celebrate Christmas at all thanks to work - So I just spent some time at Christmas Eve in the evening with my parents.
I was too tired so I just wear some comfortable stuff.
No photos are needed to be seen.^^

Anyway... we're handing out the presents.
It was pretty easy to get presents for my parents because they've written a wishlist.

But I really haven't got any wishes since a lot of things I want to have, I have to order online and they don't know the websites or seller. ^^;

So I wanted to be staggered!

That is our Christmas tree.
It's around 5,2" tall, so it's smaller than the one last year
but trees really got more and more expensive.

Some wrapped Christmas presents

I received really nice things - Most of all my cute plushie Oscar! (≡^∇^≡)

Usually I'm not that much into plushies anymore but Oscar the owl is just cute!

Since I sent one to a penpals child to Japan, I really wanted to have one for myself, too!
Now I got it! ♥

And the funny part: You can turn his head around! (~ ̄▽ ̄)~

My dear Oscar owl - and the Nightmare Before Christmas book! <3
I love the story of Jack & Co. so much and have been a fan for years now!

I also got the next collection of Kanji-cards.
They are pretty damn good but I wonder when I will start to study them at all? :')

Some other little things and 20€, too, that I spent today for another vinyl.
I love vinyl - really! The sound is so much better! ♥

My two dear penpals also sent me presents.
That was so wonderful!! T///T

From Azusa I got a pair of pretty cute ribbon earrings.

My mother also got a present from her and her little son chose something, too - a jewellery holder.
We first thought it's a photo frame. Haha.

Presents collection!

Chie wrote on the note for customs "2x hand creme" but in the end there was something else inside:

Beautiful wrapped up Anna Sui hand balm cream and nail polish! ♥

Wow! (´⊙ω⊙`)!

Anna Sui herbal hand creme and nail polish.
The cosmetics are pretty nice wrapped up! ♥

Before Azusa also sent me some a big Christmas package (you lovely crazy one!) with handy and cute things. (≡^∇^≡)

For example plush gloves that keeps you warm and a winter shirt with the Union Jack.

First I wondered how to wash it with the fur sleeves but in the end I figured out that you can just unbutton them.


Guys, thank you that you thought about this twice!

And some Christmas decorations for my room - haha.

I love decoration stuff but I don't like to collect them at all because I haven't got enough space to store them! (T_T)

Mistletoe Christmas Bells

A reindeer

A tea-light holder my mother brought me from a Christmas Market today.
It shows a little scene in town during winter / Christmas time.

In this photo it looks a bit scary, doesn't it?

☆*゚ ゜゚*☆*゚ ゜゚*

So, the next days after Christmas until 02nd January are FREE TIME ♥ o((*^▽^*))o

I have been looking forward to these six free days so much to relaxe and recover.
I'm not in my best shape because of work.

What will you do on New Year's Eve? 
Will you have a party with friends?
Or is clubbing more your style? 

Have you already decided your what ot wear?

I still have to think about it but I guess Make-up will be with a glitter part since I want to try out my new Anna Sui nail polish, too. ^^

☆*゚ ゜゚*☆*゚ ゜゚*

So here's my last message of this year to you:

Please spend a nice time on New Year's Eve!
Have a great time with your loved ones or with yourself!
Think of the good things, this year had for you and keep
them in mind as a basement for starting the new year! ♥

Any New Year's resolutions so far?

I will start with one on 01/01 here in my blog!

Byebye! ♥

Popteen issue 12/13

Hey gals!

Today as promised some impressions of the December issue of Popteen!

The special part about hairstyling was nice but I really wish that there there a lot more stylings for medium hair, too. ^^;
For gals with long hair it's good to know how to style it well but girls with medium hair can't do most of the shown stylings - It's simply not possible or it doesn't look good on shorter hair.

Another big topic was is the "doll style" which I really like.
In the magazine are a lot of ideas of styling and make up to doll up yourself - literally.

Well, here you are.

The cover really is a girly one, isn't it?

Liz Lisa and Ank Rouge are my favourite brands (that never fit my body measurements).
This winter's outers are just too cute and lace dresses or AR's red dress in the second
scan are too adorable! ♥

Popteen's girls show their winter hauls and talk about clothes & accesssoired
that can't be missed this winter.

I really love Eririn's stylings but most of all her beautiful brown hair. ♥
The red shoes are really cool!

☆*゚ ゜゚*☆*゚ ゜゚*

☆*゚ ゜゚*☆*゚ ゜゚*

Different stylings for daily life and school.
Lovely braids! ♥

☆*゚ ゜゚*☆*゚ ゜゚*

And some snaps again!
You know this is always my favourite part of magazines.

☆*゚ ゜゚*☆*゚ ゜゚*

There were many more interesting pages but in the end I really was too tired to scan them all.

So, tomorrow I'm having my last working day and when I've got almost a week of holidays!
I will tell you about my Christmas then ~♥

Got a few nice surprises!

Dear Gals,

I'm so sorry that I haven't written anything since the beginning of November!
Life keeps me busy but most of all just because of work...

So there isn't anything exciting I can tell you at all - really.
I didn't even bake one single thing for Christmas because lack of time... (T_T)

There are a lot of hardships with friends at the moment and I'm trying my best to keep going as my usual self.
But I have to admit it's hard.

Well maybe I can write a little summary about the last weeks, excluding work.

☆*゚ ゜゚*  JLPT in December 2013  *゚ ゜゚*☆

People who are interested in Japanese may know this language exam.

It's the "Japanese Language Profiency Test" and is hold twice a year - in summer and winter.
You can choose between five levels (N5 is the "easiest", while N1 is the hardest; it is often told that you need N2 for real working in Japan).

I really was motivated to sign in for December in July and thought that I've got enough time to study but I couldn't. In fact I only could started repeating stuff a week before the test!

Such a shame! (_ _)

And I think it was a little bit more difficult than two years ago.
Let's wait for the result in February if I passed but that would be more luck than anything else. (T_T)

☆*゚ ゜゚*  Christmas cards  *゚ ゜゚*☆

Right now I'm trying to finish my Christmas cards that I have to send tomorrow - there will be approx. 10 cards.

Really, I'm no card writer type but because recently I can't answer the letters of my dear penpals properly, I really should send them some greetings!

It was hard to choose cute ones - I really looked for typical old German card illustrations.

☆*゚ ゜゚*  Christmas presents  *゚ ゜゚*☆

My parents really had a hard time this year because I didn't have any wish at all.

I don't want any academic books, clothes or jewellery and I also don't want any DVDs, CDs or games for real. Most of the things I wish for are stuff that you can't buy.

But it was easy to choose a present for my mother and my father since they wrote a wishlist.


☆*゚ ゜゚* Dorama *゚ ゜゚*☆

Recently I looked for intersting dorama on the internet and got most stuck with anime.
I really wanted to have a "Strawberry Night" Season 2 and I want to watch "Aibou" Season 12 so badly but non of these will happen in the near future.

Then I started to watch "Nihonjin no shiranai Nihongo" to improve a bit in Japanese while watching foreigners living in Japan, being teached by a popculture-woman.
That was funny though I didn't want to sit the whole dorama with my notebook, taking notes. ^^;

My all beloved Ryo-kun also didn't have such a good dorama, as well (and I desperately wait for "Dakishimetai" in February).

So right now I ended up watching "14 sai no haha".

It's about a 14-years-old's pregnancy.

Somehow I'm really interested into teenager pregnancies and moreover in gyaru mama.
It's not about getting pregnant but more about coping with this decision to get a child and be responsible for it. Maybe it's also because I'm working at ob-gyn right now.
(But I still can't get along well with children - haha.)

☆*゚ ゜゚*  New Year's Eve *゚ ゜゚*☆

What will you do at New Year's eve?
Usually I celebrate New Year's coming with a small bunch of people but this time I will only celebrate it with a good friend I've known for almost 10 years now.

We still don't know what to do, celebrating at home or going clubbing but I guess we will find a nice solution! <3

I will definitely wear my blue dress then!

It will be very nice since we haven't been celebrated together for four years in a row now!

Next entry will be about some scans of the December's Popteen issue!

Bye-bye! ♥

Some (already) winter shopping

Dear Gals,

I planned on winter shopping because the season's already cold but it really was a mess to do so!

I really just needed one or two new pullovers because I haven't got many...

Although my shopping journey lead me through 8 stores (6 different ones) I didn't find anything until... today.

You know, if the price is okay, then there are other obstacles:

The fabric is itchy, the stitches are too big and therefore it's too airy, the pullover is too short, the pattern is awful, the size it too big even for an oversize pullover... and the best thing are mixed up NGs.
I don't like winter shopping except for shoes. (T_T)

Shopping in summer is easy - you always find nice dresses, shirts and skirts or pants but in winter clothing should also functionate to keep you warm.

And I didn't want to have the same model of pullover ten times in my wardrobe...

☆*゚ ゜゚*☆*゚ ゜゚*

So today I went shopping again, and what I found was...

A lovely blue dress!

My friend Nadine asked me via Line:
"Why didn't you buy it?"
Haha... it wasn't my intention and the size wasn't mine...
but now I'm really a bit sad. (T_T)

I really love this coat!!
(New Yorker)

Right now there are a lot of coats with animal prints - but most of them
aren't suited for cold weather.

In the end I ended up at "adidas NEO" - this line is more fashionable than the regular
Adidas stores. Sometimes you find good products for a fair price.

I stumbled over a padded sweater in dark grey with a nice glitter print.
"Keep on trying" :)

It wasn't expensive!

☆*゚ ゜゚*☆*゚ ゜゚*

After buying this sweater and buying a simple petrol blue cardigan for 9€ in the 1982 store I really wanted to take a look at Neo Tokyo since I missed this for some weeks.

But I forgot that they wanted to celebrate their anniversary on this day, so it was really crowded.

Thank God I already known what I want:

Of course a Popteen magazine (the Jelly issue was nice but so much more like
the fashion here), a cute guitar playing Rilakkuma strap, the last issue of "Sakura-hime kaden"
and... (I wanted it for so long) the 1st mini-album of Troublemaker (JS & HyunA).

Today I discovered that a new mini-album was released on Oct 28th,
it's called "Chemistry".

I really liked the Ghibli schedule planners for 2014 but they are so cute
that I wouldn't dare writing in them! (T_T)

☆*゚ ゜゚*☆*゚ ゜゚*

Since I'm in school for three weeks again I can finally wear nail polish again!

I'm really happy - haha.

So because Jasmin asked in her blog and I really like this "meme",

I just want to show you my own perosnal collection of colours for this Autumn:

The first two are by Manhattan cosmetics and unfortunately you can't buy them anymore.

Number one is a simple light gold which I really love to wear in combination with the metallic red one next to it. (Thanx for the inspiration, Minzy!)

In the center is a nailpolish of the Colorama section by Maybelline - berry fusion.

Next to it are two nailpolishs I bought in Poland. Bell Air Flow and Virtual Fashion Mania.

I especially like the fashion mania line because you really just need one application and really got has a shine and smooth result!

Last but not least another Manhattan special edition of the Lotus effect line.

☆*゚ ゜゚*☆*゚ ゜゚*

It sure will rain a lot next week, too...

Because I have to go to school it doesn't matter to me at all but still I don't like the combination "rain & strong wind".

☆*゚ ゜゚*☆*゚ ゜゚*

OH and I forgot:

I hope you had a HAPPY HALLOWEEN. <3

Music ♫

Hey gals!

Because I can't post a lot of pictures and outfits lately since I'm just being from one internship into another, I have to say sorry! (T_T)

Furthermore I've decided two months ago that I won't spend too much money on shopping.

I need the money for my travel in March and I also need it afterward for paying back the BaföG (supporting money for students here in Germany) soon after graduation.

I want to move out from my parents' place after my apprenticeship and so I have to make plans.

But because I safed a lot of money lately... I was able to fullfill one of biggest wishes so far.

I was finally able to buy a pretty nice e bass!

I received one from a friend because she was leaving Germany in 2011 but it wasn't a real good one and I always wanted to have another one.

Because of my apprenticeship I didn't have much time to practise in first place.

But right now most of the stress has already calmed down and I've got more free time in the 2nd year.

So a week ago I finally started watching "K-ON!" - It's an Anime about highschool girls who get together in the light music club - k-on-bu.

K-ON! wallpaper

I really liked the characters before but didn't know about the story.

Now I'm sooo~ into it and what to say... I'm absolutely on fire, considering music stuff and playing guitar/bass.

It was just this little "hint" to catch me totally. O(≧▽≦)O

That's why I used my free day today to go shopping for an e bass.

I already looked for some instruments but most of the cost the whole world and I didn't want to spend that lot of money (I always like the ones best which cost the most... Why is that so ^^;)

Then I looked on the website of my favourite located music store and they had a nice exemplar.

Its weight is sooo~ light compared to the old one of my friend.

Its bodyshape is perfect and the sound is so smooth ~ ♥
I'm really in love with this bass.

But playing bass without an amplifier isn't that much fun...

... and lucky me got another great thing:

Don't you like the style?
I'm really a fan of Union Jack patterns, so it was just perfect as well! ♥

I had to return to the store because I couldn't bring everything home in one time. (〃 ̄ω ̄〃ゞ

I really protected my two babies while using the public transport.

The last time I was so protective over something was when I buyed Sunny (my accoustic guitar) three years ago. \(//∇//)\

At home I just had to try it out!
And even though I nearly got a blister again on my left indexfinger I only stopped because of late evening. Haha...

It's wonderful being able to play an e bass properly.
And the sound is still great. (。’▽’。)♡

I also used the time, cleaning and tidying up my room.
After a whole week of working you really could have seen the dust... 

I'm happy that it's clean again! ヽ(;▽;)ノ
