(a lot of) Booty & Berlin's Kreuzberg tour

The last days haven't been really exciting. ・°・(ノД`)・°・

During lessons we had to prepare too often for oral presentations, writing scripts, etc. so I didn't went anywhere special.

On Saturday I wanted to go to a birthday party in the evening but the sudden weather change was too much for me and too less sleep the night before did everything else... (T_T)

But while going to the apothecary shop, I also went into our local drugstore, shoe store and fashion store.
Lucky me found something really nice in an instant! ヾ(@°▽°@)ノ

Remember the gradient pullover of the JELLY scans, I showed last time?

I never thought that I would find anything in that color gradient. (><;)
(Please correct me, if I'm wrong, but I haven't seen many clothes with gradient patterns here in Berlin, recently^^;)

Actually I didn't get a pullover but a pretty nice cotton/polyacrylic cardigan in the colours - just in reversed order.

These colors are really refreshing and I just feel happy by wearing this cardigan. ♥
Especially on rainy or cloudy days like yesterday.~

☆*゚ ゜゚*☆*゚ ゜゚*

Recently dolling up wasn't a big deal for me. ( ̄_ ̄ i)
Steady weather changes and the typical "morning's cold, middays warmth" phenomena let it keep me casual and simple...

So the first outfit of this week:
I really love leather jackets and shoes - then I also have pilot glasses in my equipment because they suit my face best and well... yeah... alsmost changing into a pilot's outfit, eh?
It wasn't on purpose. (haha)

Second outfit was also pretty simple because I had some stress with UV rays lately (a lot of young women seems to be as I have read in a magazine) and so I'm a bit forced to wear long shirts if the sun shines brightly.

Furthermore it was not allowed to wear any clothes with bare skin around your shoulders, back or legs (as long as it is shorter then knee-lenght) because of going to a mosque, so black leggings wear the best to choose. ^^;

(I am not religious and it was some obligatory stop during the excursion, so there was a light 'dress code')

At least I hope the weather will be fine next weekend, because I want to go to Werder with my penpal and want to dress up! ♥ (〃∇〃)

So... as I mentioned before, we had an excursion on Friday about some Berlin cultural stuff (esp. the Turkish one)

We walked through the famous neighborhood 'Kreuzberg' (I'm usally never there~) and what I discovered there was...

What's this? (ノ゚ο゚)ノ
A Korean bar? A restaurant?
I looked it up right now - it's a Korean Fried Chicken restaurant.
Okay, that was new to me.
Never knew we have something like this here.
There should be a Korean restaurant named "Kimchi Princess" next to it.
Maybe I will try it out one day. ^^

But what we definitely tried out were those delicious wonder waffles (or in Berlin also known as 'Obstdöner') (●´ω`●)ゞ

What's so special about them?

Well, do you remember Japanese crêpes?
As for me it's something like that just without whipped cream.
You choose your fruits, your topping, your sauce ... et voilà!
What you will get is shown in the photo!

I had a banana-honeydew melon waffle with caramell
cubes and white chocolate.
The confectioner's sugar is something you will get
all the time because it fits waffles too well!

Yummy! ♥
And with 3,00-3,50€ it's cheaper than most of the simple waffles you can buy in the city.
Another special is the fruitshake you can create by yourself but I haven't try it yet. ^^

So please, if you will ever be in Berlin, taje a look at WonderWaffle! (°∀°)b 
It's totally worth!! ♥

☆*゚ ゜゚*☆*゚ ゜゚*

Another shop I want to recommend you is the turkish café and shop "Smyrna Kuruyemis" in the Oranienstraße 27.

Dried fruit may sounds strange but they can taste really good! 
They also have a large amount of different nuts or nuts with chocolate coating, too!

For example I bought candied honeydew melon - absolutely delicious! o(〃^▽^〃)o
But also absolutely sweet too - like a lot of turkish sweets and candies. ^^;

Please check it out!

... Again something in orange.
I guess Orange is definitely one of my favourite colors this year.

☆*゚ ゜゚*☆*゚ ゜゚*

And last but not least:

Just wanted to speed draw Ran-pyon and the girls
since I didn't do it for years! ♥

JELLY 05/2013 issue

Two days ago, I bought the the new issue of the JELLY mag. ヾ(@°▽°@)ノ

So as for today I want to show you some of my favourite fashion and hair parts of it.

Indeed, there isn't a lot of make-up this time... what a pity, really.

☆*゚ ゜゚*☆*゚ ゜゚*


Cover of this month's issue.
The colours remind totally of denim, right?

☆*゚ ゜゚*☆*゚ ゜゚*

#01:  shortened & dyed hair with waves
#02: simple layered haircut
#03: slight mermaid style with bangs
#04: dyed using ombre style with more volume

There is a little hair special in the middle of the magazine.
Most of the stylings were for long hair - of course. (T_T)
Some of them were interesting because of the before-after pictures. (ノ゚ο゚)ノ

I really like the hair dying colors with slight pink.
It wouldn't look good on me but it's a nice nuance for hair. <3

☆*゚ ゜゚*☆*゚ ゜゚*

#01 & 06: lace dresses and shirts. <3
#02:  These trousers by CecilMcBee remind me of the sky or the ocean.
#03:  flower dresses
#04: simple black & white combination
#05: color shift pullover ♥
#07: Reminds me of dancing sessions I had with friends, wearing such an outfit. ;)
#08: stripe shirt and caps (but I can't wear them - It always looks as if I have a big head!)
#09: leopard shorts! ♥
#10: pink & blue combination

#11: Flower patterned tops & simple blue denim combination ♥
#12: I'm in love with white dresses (with patterns)
#13: Simple black & cool style

☆*゚ ゜゚*☆*゚ ゜゚*

For me these are absolutely NGs this season -
although they seem to be trendy.

Tummy shirts in combination with high waist bottoms...
Everything like this reminds me of the 90s and I really didn't like the fashion back when - even as a kid.
Furthermore I'm no fan of (clear) high heels.
But that's another thing. ^^;

☆*゚ ゜゚*☆*゚ ゜゚*

Well... and now I have to say that I really miss makeup pages and pages about accessoires. (T_T)

While flipping through the mag you will notice the whole simple style stuff, which I actually like but for spring it's a bit gloomy if it isn't an elegant black&white style. ( p_q)

I think, I need the new Seventeen issue as well. (haha)

Spending time with friends after mini-shopping

After school I met up with my dear friend Viki, yesterday.
It was planned to stroll around town, just having a relaxing time.

But because we finished earlier today, I went to Neotokyo - hoping for some new mags.

Actually, I ended up with the following:

My new JELLY issue from May.
I was very happy about the backside, too.
Seeing Aya-chan, always makes me smile.
She's great! ^__^

Yeah, I couldn't resist.
It's some love-love story and usually I don't like stories with
Middle school students (too young for me now... I'm feeling old, haha),
but this one is really cute.

Aaaand ...

Sentimental Circus stamps!!

I'm so in love this these!!
I really like stamps because you can use them for short messages,
as decoration for letters, ... and they are cute! 

omedetou - congratulations
gomen ne - sorry
[no words]
onegai - please
daisuki - like you very much
arigatou - thank you
mata ne - see you soon

☆*゚ ゜゚*☆*゚ ゜゚*

I really wanna have a whole collection of Sentimental Circus items!!!
They are my favourite San-x characters and the designs of the items are always lovely! ♥
Let's see... I will take a look on ebay.

☆*゚ ゜゚*☆*゚ ゜゚*

Viki and I met at Alexanderplatz and went straight to Hackescher Markt because I wanted to treat her to coffee or something else...

We stopped by OLLA ORIENT LOUNGE and enjoyed our time, sitting on the beach chairs, having our Bionade elder and chatting about this and that.

A talented busker sang some metres in front of us - I really liked his choice of songs. A lot of old ones like "wonderwall" by Oasis or even "Stand by me" by Ben E. King (I definitely have a trauma because of that song - thanks to my former guitar teacher... haha).

Very nice!

Having afterwards some nice time with self-cooked rice and fried chicken we walked down the way to Friedrichstraße with another stop at an ice cream cart with a very nice Italian iceman inside. ♫

It's pretty nice spending afternoons like this from time to time in the city.
I rarely do so because I'm always in a hurry for work or school or home but this is definitely something I should do more often. 

☆*゚ ゜゚*☆*゚ ゜゚*

Oh, and I started doing sports again.
Because I got sick so often last year, I couldn't train anymore and I really noticed it in endurance and even in skin condition.

No joke.

I love sports since I started playing volleyball almost 10 years ago.
But step by step I didn't hold it up.
Different kinds of injuries, being too tired from work, etc. really lowered my spirit.
Now I will give it another try.
I already feel much better!

Trip to Hamburg

Today was finally the chance to go to Hamburg again. (=⌒▽⌒=)

I really love this city and because a good friend of mine lives in this city I'm pretty much often there.

So we started at central station to get to the Sanrio shop, Tsuki-chan recommended me.
Such an awesome shop!!

Really!!! ♥

I mean, I don't like sparkeling bright pink in every corner but I really love this shop!

There were a lot of SALE offerings, too! (°∀°)b

Happy after buying some stuff. ♥

☆*゚ ゜゚*☆*゚ ゜゚*

Afterwards we went to the next station, discovering some shops but didn't buy anything.

We ended up in Mundsburg were a cool Sushibar existed but right now it's under construction?
So we decided to try out the Louisiana again - 
... and in the end took the same menue we had last time. -w

We had cocktails, as well, but chosen non-alcoholic ones.

I got a Banana Joe - a mix of banana, citrus and sour creams.
It was decorated with honey melon and water melon. ♥
I love melons!!

☆*゚ ゜゚*☆*゚ ゜゚*

Finished, we took a look in the shopping mall and I found a nice item at H&M.

It's always funny that the things were often differs from the ones here... although the store collections should be the same.

Oh and I still don't like most of the fabric the clothes are recently made of.
Too synthetic. (T_T)
There were a lot of nice shirts but since the fabric itself is such a plastic thing I won't buy it...

I hope it will get warmer soon, so I can wear this little butterfly dress
with my jeans jacket & cute accessoires. ♥

☆*゚ ゜゚*☆*゚ ゜゚*

Then it was around 3 PM and we could go to the Hamburger Dom. (^~^)

It's something we do everytime it's there.

At one of the stalls you could win.... Dragon Ball plush toys! (°д°;)
And there even were some more of them!

The quality wasn't bad!

☆*゚ ゜゚*☆*゚ ゜゚*

After our turn around the funfair we went to Altona.

On this way we had to cross the Reeperbahn.
I don't like this place much but I've seen some interesting spots:

a very asymmetric building from all sides...

my favourite ice cream parlour in Hamburg with
the old sundaes collection

one of the interesting signs around the Reeperbahn

and just another view from the beginning of the Reeperbahn

☆*゚ ゜゚*☆*゚ ゜゚*

In Altona we first headed to a café because we were tired from walking the whole day.

We ordered two yummy spaghetti ice and just relax a bit while chatting about different things. ♫

spaghetti ice with yoghurt, strawberry sauce and shredded chocolate 

☆*゚ ゜゚*☆*゚ ゜゚*

Last store for the day was the papershop and I wrote a postcard for Tsuki-chan as promised. ♥

Just an hour later I took my train back home, meeting up with family's friends and... was absolutely tired!! (x_x;)

I'm not used to have such exhausting days anymore. ^^;

Stuff I bought at the Sanriostore:
a cute pink pencilcase, some greeting cards
and jelly molds with HK, Miffy & Co.
The black lunch bag was a present from my friend~
Thank you very much! ♥

Mangas I bought that day: Dakedo amanojaku,
Sakurahime kaden 11,Stardust Wink1
I will write some reviews, soon. :)

☆*゚ ゜゚*☆*゚ ゜゚*

Have a nice Sunday and baibai! ~ ♥

Japanese sweets / Tokyo ViVi

Hello darlings! <3

The whole week nothing happened particulary.
It's always the same during school weeks.
Too much stuff to do and to learn, so there isn't really time for anything else. (T_T)

But I'm looking forward to the next traineeship!
It's 'just' work and so I'll have freetime every afternoon and evening.
Furthermore I'll work in a day hospital, so the weekends are free, too. ヾ(@°▽°@)ノ

I already made some plans for May and really looking forward to it.
Especially the day trip to the tree blossom festival with my penpal! ♥ (〃∇〃)

So for today I decided to show you some of my favourite Japanese sweets.

I really like the different flavours of Japanese KitKat!
The pumpkin flavour isn't really strong, but Matcha flavour is great!
I hope that I can try Sakura KitKat soon. Just have to wait
for a package. -w

Milky milk candies are very sweet but are tasting really good, too.
It's some kind of ordinary flavour but there is no need to have
extraordinary things every single time, right?

I love the design! ♥
Look a la mode chocolate includes four different flavours
as you can see. Actually, I haven't tried them yet, but I will
those days. With strawberry, banana or caramell chocolate you
can't do anything wrong! (〃∇〃)

☆*゚ ゜゚*☆*゚ ゜゚*

Yesterday my Tokyo Vivi issue also arrived. (●´ω`●)ゞ

I haven't bought the ViVi magazine or this special issue before but I really like the design.
Most of the clothings are also good casual style mixed with cool, girly or mature.

Other pages consist of the model's private talk or photos of their private belongings.
I really like such things as 'what is in your bag?'
Very interesting and sometimes you can spot some new good things. ^^

Of course at the end of the issue some gymnastic practises are also shown.
The usual stuff for a beautiful skin, beautiful legs or breasts.
(In my opinion it's stuff that don't work)

As a résumé I want to say that this special mag of ViVi is really refreshing in design, made of good paper quality and the styles are between western and Japanese fashion lines.

I think I will buy the next one, too. ♥

Oh right, and the special feature are some illustration of Sailor Moon.
That was the icing on the cake why I wanted to buy this mag!  -w

Some nail art trends are also shown, but I don't like the geometrical
patterns. Absolutely not my style. ^^;

Good evening, gals! ♥

Since autumn last year I really became addicted to nailart! (=⌒▽⌒=)

I really love to read the NailUp! mag because it always gives me a lot of inspiration.

You will find a lot of new models but also some nail&styling
inspiration or DIY tutorials. The nail art "Award" section is pretty
interesting, too! ♥

The only problem is: my job.

As a nursing student (and as a nurse, too, but that's something different - esp. if you see most of the nurses with the following) I am not allowed to wear nailpolish, gel or acryl nails or anything else that is decoration on my nails.

But that's the reason why I want to wear some during vacations or school time!

Since I have to show my natural nails at least every 4-6 weeks at work I haven't gone to a nail salon, yet.
And in my opinion it isn't worth to, when I only have 2-3 days off. ;)
So... I do it myself.

Not perfect. ^^;
I still have to learn a lot. (T_T)
But it's fun.

fairy tail inspired nails

winter season

just pretty simple with a few silver and pink rhinestones

The red ones here are not my design -
it's from Minzy's stylist in the 2NE1 clip "I love you"
But I really love it -  that's also the design
I've worn the most up until now.

☆*゚ ゜゚*☆*゚ ゜゚*

And I need a lot of more nail polish variants.
I've only got 31! ;D

And this empty gift box is very handy, too!
Finally I can organize them and they won't get dusty easily.
Should have done that already a long time ago ...)

☆*゚ ゜゚*☆*゚ ゜゚*

Oh and today my cute little skirt arrived. ♥

It looks much better than expected, the fabric realls is smooth...

Love it. <3

So for today's presentation I still have work to do...

let's start!

(Although I'm already so tired.... (θωθ)/~)

bai bai ♥
