Week in Berlin

Hey everyone <3!

My class (including Anna) spent the last week in Berlin as our this year’s class trip. I think I can speak for everyone who attended that it was great! As for class trips normal we walked a lot but overall we often had some free time for ourselves too, which we of course enjoyed more than walking the whole day 🙂 In my free time I explored the city on my own with some friends or went shopping or just sat in a café. We visited the Konzentrationslager in Sachsenhausen and the Stasi-Haftanstalt in Hohenschönhausen they were both horrible and everyone felt so numb after our visit. No one wanted to imagine being there at the time when it wasn’t just a “tourist attraction”!

Underneath you can find some pictures I took in Berlin!

SORRY

Hey everyone ❤
As you may already have noticed we didn’t follow our blogging schedule and you can’t believe how sorry we are! Our both lives have been pretty messy the last days and we needed to figure out a lot of things. We wrote many tests in school and Kijana is dancing every weekend with her group and has trainings twice a week and it’s pretty hard for her to manage everything right now 😦
This is only a quick post giving you a short explanation why we haven’t been uploading regularly
We hope you understand and you will still be a reader of our blog ❤
Until next time

Current Favorite Songs

Hey everyone ❤

Today I decided to show you my most listened and favorite songs. I think everybody knows this: you have tons of songs on your phone but just listen to maybe 10-20 of them every day 😀 That’s why I clear up my music library every now and then. Often it depends on my mood what I hear but lately I haven’t been good but that’s another thing.

Anyway, here are my favorite songs to which I usually listen to in the last few weeks 🙂 (if you click on the song title, it will automatically direct you to the video link):

Rap / Hip-Hop

Freak My Shit – New Boyz

Love Me – Lil Wayne

Make It Nasty – Tyga

So High – Wiz Khalifa

No Type – Rae Sremmurd

Chill Step

So Good To Me – Chris Malinchak

Youth (Remix) – Daughter

Fifteen (Remix) – Goldroom feat. Chela

Smoke And Mirrors (Remix) – Patrice

Thinking ‘Bout You – Frank Ocean

Other

Thinking Out Loud – Ed Sheeran

LIEBSTER AWARD

 Hey guys ❤

We were very happy when we got nominated for the Liebster Award three times this week and after we found out what this award exactly is, we were even more happy that we got the chance to discover new blogs with it! Thank you so much to Chelsea, Emily and India this is so nice of you xx

Here are the rules to this fabulous award:

1. Thank and link the person who nominated you.
2. Answer the questions given by the nominator.
3. Nominate 11 other bloggers (who have less than 200 followers) and link them.
4. Create 11 new questions for the nominees to answer.
5. Notify all nominees via social media/blogs.

Chelsea’s questions are:

1. What is your favourite magazine?
Kijana:
I love Glamour and InStyle because they aren’t that expensive and I think they have the most interesting topics from lifestyle to love and travel.
Anna:
My favorite ones are Shape, Cosmopolitan and Glamour. I love these because with these three magazines I can unite all my favorite topics: Sports, stars, fashion and lifestyle.
2. What is your go-to lipstick?
Kijana:
I don’t usually wear lipstick to school or elsewhere, just when I am going out I sometimes apply a bit of the Maybelline ColorDrama in the shade ‘Light it up’ it’s matte and long-lasting which I really like because I dislike these shiny and glittery lipsticks.
Anna:
I actually don’t wear lipstick, because I haven’t found a nice one. It should be matte and not that extraordinary.
3. If you had to leave the house only wearing one make up item, what would it be?
Kijana:
Definitely Eyebrow Powder! I seriously can’t go outside without my filled in eyebrows because I absolutely hate my eyebrows without it. I just feel so uncomfortable without it idk why.
Anna: 
Hm… That’s a really hard question. I think mascara or powder. I think powder because my skin is really good and I don’t need anything else.
4. Best movie you have seen recently?
Kijana:
I choose “Mockingjay”! I waited for this movie for so long to get released and I was so happy when I was finally sitting in the cinema and it’s just my most liked movie in the last time!
Anna: 
Hm.. I’m just thinking about this question, but honestly I can’t find a good answer… I saw many films and I all liked them. The last film I saw was “Qu’est-ce qu’on a fait au Bon Dieu?” and I really like it. Actually I’m more the series kind of person
5. Do you have a favourite blogger?
Kijana:
I think I can answer this for both of us haha 😀 Kristine Ullebø!! She is our all time favorite blogger and she was mainly one of the reasons we started blogging which leads me to the next question.
 Anna:
Oh, I can fully agree with Kijana. I follow her blog for nearly one year now, and I’m so in love with it.
6. Why did you start blogging?
Kijana:
As I already said above, Kristine was a huge influence to us but also other bloggers. I wanted a blog for so long because I just love to express my opinions on everything and when I told Anna about it, she luckily agreed to start one with me 🙂 And it is definitely the best choice I did last year
 Anna:
I was also influenced by Kristine Ullebø. I thought it would be nice to do that, too. If Kijana hadn’t said yes, I would have started my own blog.
7. What is your favourite make up brand?
Kijana:
I don’t really have a favorite one because I just buy the things I like and I don’t care what brand it is. But most of my make up essentials are from either benefit or maybelline because all their stuff is great! 🙂
Anna:
I don’t really care about a brand. You know if I realize that some products of a special brand are good, I would buy them, but that does not mean that I focus on this brand. But nobody can say something against Urban Decay 😉
8. Do you have any pets? If so what are they?
Kijana:
I’ve got a dog and a cat I love to death! ❤
Anna:
I do not have any pets, and that’s such a pity. I love animals. I adore them, but my mum has a bakery so it does not work….
9. How do you spend your weekends?
Kijana:
The next four weeks my weekends will mostly be dancing with my group because of carnival but usually I do something with friends and if they don’t have time I sit at home and watch some series or movies and listen to music
Anna:
Other teenagers in my age are going to party every weekend. I love that too, but somehow I do not do that. Of course on friday evenings I use to go to a place where people in my age spend their evening, but currently there is no special party, so I sit at home watching series.
10. What is your best advice for people?
Kijana:
Don’t ever let yourself down, believe in yourself and don’t give a shit about what others think
Anna:
My advice is… you should never do something because other people want you to. When you want to wear that dress, although somebody says he doesn’t like it, wear that fucking dress, and if you want to lose weight although somebody say you don’t need it, than lose weight. Do it, so YOU feel comfortable.
11. If you had to describe yourself in one word, what would it be?
Kijana:
weird
Anna:
spastic
Thank you Chelsea these questions were so much fun to answer 🙂

India’s questions are:

1. Where do you see yourself in 5 years?
Kijana:

By that time I will have school finished for 3 years and I will probably be traveling around the world and start to work after that.

Anna:

In five years, I hopefully have a great Abitur (the german diploma). I see myself traveling the world or studying for my dream job.

2. What is your favourite place you’ve travelled to and why?
Kijana:

Glasgow! I was there October 2013 with my uncle and it was such a pleasure to go there and experience the british lifestyle in a friend’s house. I never really was interested in Scotland but once I got there, I didn’t want to leave because it is seriously by far the most beautiful city I’ve ever been to.

Anna:

I loved London last year. I spent some weeks in England and I adore the kind of lifestyle they have.

3. What do you look forward to most this year?
Kijana:
My 16th birthday! I literally cannot wait any longer to finally be 16! You know how much it sucks being the youngest in all your friends and they all can go to clubs and so on while I have to sit at home? If not I can tell you that this is the most annoying thing ever so yeah I am so looking forward to the 31st July! 🙂
Anna:
Like Kijana I absolutely count the days until the 23rd October. 16 is the age in Germany, when you officially can go to clubs and drink alcohol. And I’m looking forward to vacations. Does not matter which one.
4. Would you rather: be ugly and live forever or be attractive and die after one year?
Kijana:
That’s a tough question but as I don’t want to live forever I would choose be attractive and die after one year. At least this year I wouldn’t have to constantly worry on how I look and enjoy every simple moment.
Anna:
I think it depends on what you think is ugly. But I’d rather be attractive and die then, because one day, all your friends and family will die, and then you are alone. In our society, it is important how you look and it is harder if you are ugly. So I would enjoy my last year and then die in peace.
5. Coffee or tea?
Kijana:
Definitely tea! I couldn’t live without it. Tea can help you in every situation and it gets a little bit better with every sip I take.
Anna:
Coffee, coffee, coffee! absolutely coffee. I’m that kind of person who needs that. Like in the afternoon, in school, when you know there are waiting two hours of chemistry, a shot of espresso is the best thing that could happen. You know, I’m very hyper then and it’s so funny 🙂 My favorite is vanilla/caramel macchiato
6. If you could be any age for a week, what age would that be?
Kijana:
7! This was the age when life was with no worries and I was outside the whole day playing with friends who live in the neighborhood! Seriously life was so much easier back then. I enjoyed going to school and didn’t sit at home with my phone and laptop.
Anna:
I’d like to be 18. Then I would have finished school, I could do everything I want, because it is really just for one week. If it would be longer, I’d rather be 7 like Kijana, with no worries and drawing pictures in school.
7. Which do you feel prepares you for life most effectively: university or real life experience?
Kijana:
Real life experience! Who cares what is written in books which try to explain how life should be and what happens when you do this or that? Go out and make some own experiences this is what will be the best for you and you can find out on your own how you want to life. Of course you will make some mistakes but these mistakes are there for a special reason namely that you learn from them.
Anna:
For me, it is hard to say. But I would say real life experience. I think that because you know why should I can interpret cartoons in german, english, french and spanish, when I do not know how to cook (well I know how to cook, but if I look at my brother, He thinks he can survive with asian noodle soup). Of course, sometimes it is too late when you make faults you could have denied when you would have learned it, but all in all I would say real life experience
8. What is the first thing you notice about people?
Kijana:
First I see if they’re happy or not. I don’t know how I do this but just when I look at someone even if they are smiling I see when they’re unhappy.
 Anna:
The first thing I notice is the way they are looking. Some look patient, some arrogant, some happy and some others sad. The eyes are telling a lot more than a smile. You can fake a smile but the way your eyes look, you cannot pretend.
9. Would you rather travel to the future or back in time?
Kijana:
Future! Because I am so interested in what will happen next and how life and generally the earth will look like in the future
 Anna:
Definitively future! The back would be interesting, but it has happened. And everything that happened took part of the present, so me, I think I would want to change bad things, but that would be disastrous! So I’d rather see what will happen
10).To what extent do you trust people? Explain!
Kijana:
I trust people so much. Sometimes it’s a curse because they don’t treat my information right and tell it to everybody which kinda sucks but I just always try to see the good in people and believe them when they say they’re not telling anybody. Of course I don’t tell them my whole life story but if something is important to that point and I trust them I go ahead and tell them. But with time I get better and better in knowing if I should tell this person the thing or not.
 Anna:
I’m actually at the point where I realize that I trust people too much. Of course I can trust my true friends. Like I would tell everything to Kijana, because I am sure that she won’t tell anybody, but in the past I got disappointed by too many people I trusted too hard, and that’s sad because it is difficult now for me to let people in.
11. Would you rather know how you’re going to die or when you’re going to die?
Kijana:
I would like to know when I am going to die because then I know how much time is left to do all the things I want to do and I have the time to say goodbye to everybody and I don’t have to leave unexpected 🙂 Just imagine you’d know that you will die because you were hit by a car! Would you ever go even near a street? Because I clearly wouldn’t.
 Anna:
Like Kijana I would rather know when I am going to die. Of course it is a bad feeling one day before, but then you can die pure. You can apologize, you can tell people what you think about them, so that your end is calm.
Thank you India for asking this questions! ❤

Anna:
The best memory is the situation when my dad played horse with us. we had a really huge mattress in our living room. My brother, my sister and me, we sat on my dad’s back and he was swinging so we fall off on the mattress. I loved that.

Bye-Bye Holiday Pounds – Breakfast

Hey there ❤

You gained a few pounds over holidays and you want to start working on your body so you’ll rock those bikinis in summer? Then I’ll have some awesome recipes for you, which do not only taste good but also are healthy! I’m sure you don’t feel hungry after these 🙂 This will be the first post in the new collection called “bye-bye holiday pounds”. This collection will feature a lot of healthy and filling recipes which you hopefully try out on your own and please tell me in the comments below what you think of them :*

Breakfast ideas:

Banana Egg Pancakes

I’m sure that most of you already know this but I just have to take this in here too because it is one of the easiest and most delicious breakfasts ever!! It’s so easy that even my dad (who’s not a good cook) can do it for me 😀

What you need:

1 Banana

2 Eggs

I just use these ingredients but if you want you can apply milk or anything else like cinnamon or chocolate chips to them.

How:

Just munch the banana so that all pieces are pretty small and creamy. After that just add the eggs and stir it until it has a viscous consistency. Pour some oil  (a pea-sized amount is enough) in the hot pan and then give the dough to it and wait until it is brown on one side then flip it over to the other. And you’re done!! You can add some blueberries, raspberries or some maple syrup or anything else you desire.

I mostly eat blueberries and maple syrup with my pancakes 🙂

Fruity Granola Yoghurt 

The seond recipe I am going to present you is as simple as the first one! It’s perfect for those days when you want something crunchy between your teeth but it should still be creamy.

What you need:

150g plain yoghurt or greek yoghurt

30g fruits like mango, berries, etc.

50g granola

Of course you can adjust these as you like 🙂

How:

Fill in the yogurt first and layer the granola on top of it and at the end you can sprinkle the fruits you want on top.

Sorry I don’t have a picture of it now, but I will add it as soon as I can 🙂


Enjoy!

Hope you like these recipes and let me know in the comments below if you liked them 🙂

See you soon!! xx

A Day In The City

Hey guys! ❤

Today the two of us spent a day in the city and of course did some shopping 😀

The first thinmg we did after our train arrived was, like you could have expect it, eating. But not somewhere in a no-name fast food restaurant. No, we ate salad, yes, we are healthy 😀 , at Dean&David. The super-delicious “Chicken Ceasar’s Salad”. It was probably the best salad, we have ever eaten. It was perfect.

First, we played with the thought to stay at this cafe, because although we just had been there for an hour, our feet hurt so much ( well, this might be obvious because we wore high shoes, but it looks great, tho).

So, we made the pedastrian area to our catwalk 😀 (hahahahahaha. No. Joke) and our target was Douglas.

There, Kijana found something, that made her to be the happiest girl ever. At least until we went to the next shop 😀

She found this treasure

The Benefit Dandelion Blush.

It looks really super cute and with her hairs /they are currently back (she looks like snow white!)

The next fabulous store we captured was Zara.

Zara is a store, you can enter and normally you can be sure that you will find something, and oh yes, we did find something ❤ 😀

First of all Kijanas shirts

The first pictures are the things from H&M and after that there are the things we got in Müller

This is what we got there 🙂

Sources Of Inspiration – Tumblr

Hey everyone! ❤

Today it’s my turn to upload a post and I decided to dedicate it to the introduction of a new collection called “Sources Of Inspiration”. There are a lot of sources  we get our inspiration from and I wanted to show you today my ️probably hugest inspiration namely tumblr. As you already know I’m a passionate tumblr blogger (you can find my blog here) on which I reblog daily things I love from others 🙂

After winter break it’s for everyone hard to go back to school or uni, because we all enjoyed this time doing nothing but relaxing and doing whatever we want. But many see this new year as a fresh new start to achieve everything they want and have amazing opportunities! 🙂 Now I don’t want to go on talking like a waterfall so enjoy these pictures which will hopefully get you as inspired as me ❤
