new in.


Hey guys! :) This past Friday I got a fantastic present from my sister Conny,- she got me a Marc Jacobs make-up bag!

Even though I've never really cared about owning branded goods, MJ really does offer some cute and stylish products, I gotta say.

I already cannot wait to fill this lovely bag with all my stuff and take it with me to Bratislava tomorrow! So thanks again big sis for giving me this awesome present! I will treasure it! :) To now slowly bring this blogpost to an end, here are some pics I made during the day! Have a lovely Sunday, everyone! :) 




Hello people!

This post is a little/very belated due to my inability to be as consistent with blogging as Vicky. A couple of weeks ago I met up with Vicky for breakfast in the nice little café an-do in Vienna. Vicky ordered yummy-looking cocoa, whilst I opted for some coffee and we both got a huge croissant with raspberry jam to eat. 

After breakfast we wandered around the city for a while before craving food again. Because Vicky had never been to the ice-cream parlour called Eis-Greissler before and I was raving about their pear ice-cream I've had some time ago, we decided to pay them a visit - and were not disappointed. Well, except for me, because I was looking forward to having that amazing pear ice-cream again but unfortunately they didn't sell it anymore. Nonetheless my spirits lifted when I tasted the ice-cream I did get: apricot and goat cheese. Yes, you heard (or rather read) correctly. Goat cheese. Goat. Cheese. And it was wonderful. 


new adventures.

In September, Mike and I will spend 3 days in the capital city of Slovakia, Bratislava. We've never been to this city before, so we're already really looking forward to explore the things this place has to offer! :) The first thing I do when planning a trip is to look at some Pinterest pictures to get in the right travel mood. Mission accomplished, I'd say. If anyone has any Bratislava restaurant/shopping/sightseeing advice, please leave a comment! :)


bed and breakfast.


Hi guys! :) Yesterday evening, I was happy to welcome my good friend Lisa as a guest in my apartment. I cooked her some dinner, a spinach - goat cheese strudel, followed by a chocolate dessert. 

We really had a blast talking about old times and exchanging funny stories about each other's lifes. Since Lisa's a regular sleepover-guest at maison Vicky, I prepared us some guacamole after dinner and we made ourselves comfortable on the bed, watching Mrs. Doubtfire (not just in honour of Mr. Williams, but also because we simply love that movie)! 

We actually went to sleep quite late that day due to all the Youtube videos we were watching afterwards whilst consuming masses of chocolate. (We regretted our greed later and started squirming and rolling around like pigs). That must have been a pleasant thing to look at. 
Well, the next morning we had some breakfast,- yes, me too, even though I dislike breakfast, however it was very tasty, I really gotta say. I made Lisa an American flag inspired toast, since she was talking about maybe going to California and the western states next year, therefore I felt obliged to make her a themed-breakfast suprise.

Also, Lisa got to meet one of my new family members, a panda baby boy. 

His name is 50Cent. (He's named after the rapper 50Cent, since I got him at a fleamarket in Vienna for,- guess how much ... - 50Cents, exactly. This genuis idea to name him after his pricing was my dad's, who didn't think that Gustav was such a good name for him. Lovely, isn't he? To tell you a little bit about himself, - his favourite activities are sleeping, ...

... climbing pillows,

... eating ...

... and playing with his friends.  

You gotta just love him, right? :) 


for old time's sake.


H E Y   T H E R E!
On Friday, we celebrated my mum's birthday. One of her presents were pictures of her childhood that my father had converted to JPGS with a dia-scanner a few weeks ago. With joint efforts we were able to quickly convert all the dias, photoshop them and hand the finished prints off to my mum. I guess you can imagine her enthusiasm towards her present! :) Down below, there's a pic of the basket we got her, it mainly consisted of travel essentials from H&M and other things. My personal favourite was the card I got from a wedding store in Vienna that also sells birthday cards. Lovely! And so retro!

And as you already know, part of her present basket were the photos. With  my mum's permission, I would now like to share my absolute favourite pics with you. You'll see some gorgeous photos of my grandpa, grandma and of course, my mother. I hope you'll enjoy the pictures as much as I do.
