Best Friend Reunion

Friday, May 22, 2015

Yesterday was a big and important day for me, because I've seen my best friend Iba again after almost 4 years. We know each other since school-time. It was an amazing feeling to see and hug her again. I surprisingly received a wonderful smelling bouquet from her and of course she received a nice gift from me too.


We decided to go downtown to a mall called "K in Lautern" for some shopping. But first, our sweet tooth led us to "Gelateria La Luna" an ice cream parlor, where we had an espresso and white hot chocolate, along with waffles topped with strawberries, vanilla ice cream, and whipped cream.



After polishing off these tasty waffles and talking about what's been happening in our lives, we ended up going to Primark buying a few fashionable items plus this cute necklace with my initial in the picture above. Now I have these type of necklaces in gold and in silver (take a peek at this post with my silver one in it).

This day went over too fast after spending so much fun time together, but it was overall a really super day. My friend and I are now trying to see each other as much as we can during my stay here in Germany.

May Beauty Haul

Tuesday, May 12, 2015

I haven't had internet and a good signal on my IPhone for about three horrible weeks. We live in a very small village now where the signal on my phone is not quite well. Due to that I switched my service provider to another. Free WiFi is also very limited here - what's up? You don't know how I felt without the world wide web :D It's like having a pizza without tomato sauce and cheese on it. But now I finally have it back and I'm happy to write my posts again and share it with you.

Our furniture and everything else has arrived yesterday. It was a long day of organizing the kitchen, the living room, and the closet. It feels so good to have our own couch and bed again. Before that, we were sitting and sleeping on furniture which were temporarily provided by someone, but they were hard as bread. I'm still grateful that we had something to sleep and sit on.



Besides all that I did a beauty haul at my favorite pharmacy "DM-Markt" and grabbed some things that I will soon run out of. I kind of missed my German pharmacies. They always have something that I need.

In the picture above is the my latest beauty haul from left to right, top to bottom:

Catrice Absolute Nude Eyeshadow Palette
I fell in love with these six beautiful and shimmery shades. You really can't go wrong with this palette. I'm a fan of nude shades. These are great for every day looks.

Essence Blush Up! Powder Blush in "Heat Wave"
I cannot tell how much I love this blush. Since they start selling this one I've been wearing this everyday. This color makes my cheeks glow.

Catrice Kabuki Brush from the "Rock-o-co" Limited Edition
This brush has extremely soft bristles and it is ideal for every powder application such as blushes and bronzers.

Maybelline Volum Express The Colossal Waterproof Mascara
There is no other mascara that gives the right volume and length to my eye lashes. This is one of my favorite mascaras that I always use.

Demak Up Expert Waterproof Eye-Make Up Remover
Well this one is very new. I haven't open it yet because I still have to finish the rest of my Neutrogena oil-free eye makeup remover. Is anyone of you using it?

La Maison du Savon de Marseille Donkey Milk Body Lotion
My Mother brought this from France for me. My skin is kind of dry and sensitive lately and this lotion does it's job. It is rich in vitamins and moisturizes my dry skin very well.

Neutrogena Visibly Clear Pink Grapefruit Facial Wash
This facial wash removes makeup, grease and dirt from my face and smells so good.

Nivea Pflegendes Gesichtswasser
This is my all time favorite toner. Glad to have it again. I couldn't find the exact same toner while I was living in the states. I heard they discontinued this product, but why? This is such a great toner plus it doesn't contain alcohol. It smells amazingly good and my skin always feels so moist and soft.

Hallo Deutschland!

Saturday, April 18, 2015




I'm back in beautiful old Germany! :)

I'm really happy to be back. The first and best moment was when my husband and I left the airport and smelled the fresh, crisp air!

Around six days after arrival, we surprised my mom in front of the door in my old hometown.  Now she is happy to have us back.

We will stay here for approximately three good years. Tampa in Florida wasn't what we thought it would be and I hope that I will have a better future here.

After a long hunt for finding a nice house we finally found one. Now we only wait until our furniture arrives here and then I'm ready to start a new chapter in my life.
