Chapter 10 of 12 - October Conclusion & November Resolution 2017

How have you been - let me think about that for a moment

October was challenging. October brought some hard decisions.
October was stressful :)

Looking back October was pretty hard.
It was challenging in a personally and a "professional" way.
I am proud of much and I do not regret any decisions I made even if they were hard.
Thats a good thing actually isn´t it ^^
Winterterm started this month and I am so not sure I am still doing the right thing with this study.
Relationship wise everything is or was really nice ^^ Everything is exctly the way I wished or ever could wish for :)

Let me think is there any lesson I´ve really learned in October.
Yes actually there is but nothing really new neither to me nor to you...
One or actually two things I learned or confirmed for myself is that working hard for something and not being afraid of something new really can pay off ^^
Yes I know nothing you hear more often in life
...nothing comes from nothin…

Chapter 9 of 12 - September Conclusion & October Resolution 2017

How have you been - let me think about that for a moment
September was alright. September was stressful and sometimes frustrating. September was filled with music.
September was otherwise nice :)

September was good in general.
It was challenging on many levels and sometimes a bit sad and often overwhelming.
I had many many shows to take part and sing in which I talked about it my last chapter post. That meant a lot of train journeys many stressful traveling and often enough hurrying to be somewhere in time.
Something that seems totally normal to probably most of you but for those who feel and suffer from the same kind of anxious feelings this is pretty damn hard. I hope at last that I am not the only one who feels anxious the minute I have to be somewhere at a certain time...
Relationship wise it was amazing - those damn voices which constantly tell you you should better run and be safe finally stoped ... most of the time ^^ thats so great. Everything is grea…

Chapter 8 of 12 - August Conclusion & September Resolution 2017

How have you been - let me think about that for a moment
August was hard.
August pretended to be amazing for many moments but it was hard. August had its fun moments which were amazing. August challenged me a lot. August bright back the doubt I am fighting so hard against.

August maybe made me stronger, but it also took a lot of my energy.
Many little amazing things happened which gave and are giving me strength...especially at this point in which I am sitting here thinking about this last month.
There were a few things which gave me hope during this month...on many different life-wise and future-wise aspects.
Unfortunately some did not really work out the way I hoped or wished them to work out.
That left me feeling really depressed, sad and troubled.
Am I doing the right thing? What am I supposed to do next? and Am I soing the right things?
Should I just g on studing, should I keep on looking for a job in the field I studied four years for, or should I undersa…

Hello all you booklovers :)
Waiting for a new review? ^^ Well here you go ;) A review for the category - A Book from a Nonhuman Perspective
and yes I know my choice might seem like I´m trying to make it as easy for myself as possible but...I actually really wanted to read this book sinc I´ve seen the movie in 2009.

Fantastic Mr Fox 
by Roald Dahl

Again I helped myself to a review from goodreads
* "Fantastic Mr. Fox is on the run! The three meanest farmers around are out to get him. Fat Boggis, squat Bunce, and skinny Bean have joined forces, and they have Mr. Fox and his family surrounded. What they don’t know is that they’re not dealing with just any fox–Mr. Fox would never surrender. But only the most fantastic plan ever can save him now." *

"Through Another's Eyes:  Xenofiction
Xenofiction is fiction from a nonhuman perspective; that is, at least part of the novel is from the point-of-view of an alien, animal, monster, etc.  Xenofiction allows one to see from the ey…

Tanya Burr Cosmetics Neutral Ambience | a Review

Hello everyone ^^
How are you all today? I hope you had a lovely week and having an amazing weekend ahead
I have an aaaaamazing little review for you today :)

The Neutral Ambience Collection by Tanya Burr Cosmetics

I got three pieces of the collection The My Escape Eye Palette,  The Sunday Walk Lipstick and  The Bear Hug Lipstick
In the collection is also an other eye shadow palette called My Paradise. In it are soma amazing rose gold shades and I want to get this one too...asap ^^It looks absolutely gorgeous.
But first I decided to go for my escape. Main reason...I just thought that the mainly khaki shades are a lot more unique...especially in my collection.

First of all, as always, the packaging. Its very similar to what you see in Tanya’s normal range of eye shadow palettes. Small, square and very lightweight but sturdy - so basically perfect for traveling - always a huuuge pro ^^ There are some small details which changed. First of all the palette does not open from right to left (…

2017 Reading Challenge - A Book with Career Advice

Good Evening bookworms :)
Guess what its Thursday and you know what that means
A new review this time for the category - A Book with Career Advice 

by Sophia Amoruso

First of all
Again I helped myself to a review from goodreads

* "In #GIRLBOSS Sophia Amoruso tells the story of her incredible success. 
She shows us how everyone can become successful when you trust yourself and follow your instinct. Sophia Amoruso is the founder and CEO of clothing company Nasty Gal, a company with sales of over $ 100 million and employs over 350 people. 
But the first thing she ever sold online was not a piece of clothing - it was a book she had stolen somewhere. Until her twenty-second she had all sorts of jobs and no idea what she wanted to do with her life. Then she decided to try some vintage clothes on eBay. 
The rest is history
