Finally! Since the beginning of this week we had beautiful weather here in Vienna: Sunshine, sunshine, sunshine and the temperature started to rise again to around 18°C by yesterday. Unfortunately today the sky is grey like it was for the whole winter (really depressing, I tell you!) and they also predicted we're going to have snow again in several weather forecasts. Brrr...

Black mixed with gold is a very classic color combination, isn't it? I used to hate yellow gold jewelry, I only had silver, rhodium or white-gold jewelry. But around two years ago I really started to like some pieces of yellow gold jewelry, too. I think that especially antique looking gold has it's own charm. It's nothing for every day, but if you're wearing something elegant or romantic I prefer it over silver jewelry. So for this season I decided to get something simple in rhodium and on the other hand something elegant in black and gold from Swarovski: Intervalle Galuchat Pattern Bangle Mini Black...

Hi everyone, how are you? Today, I just wanted to show you, my new baby: I finally saved enough money to buy a new photo camera ^.^! First I thought about buying a digital SLR camera. I really loved taking photos with SLR cameras, but they are so big and heavy to just take them around, and I'm someone who wants just to take photos every time and everywhere, so I was rather skeptical about buying one. With all the advertisement for the Nikon 1 camera, I really became interested in the new system cameras, which are not only as small as...

Ni no Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch was finally released in Europe, and I had the big honor to test this game for a friend's website called Cerealkillerz. You can find my (mostly identical) german review here. I've always been a big fan of JRPGs, but I've been kinda disappointed about the releases of the last years, if there even were that many JRPGs  to begin with...

I really would like to have colorful hair, even if I could only get highlights in a different color, that would be so cool! But it really seems to be kinda hard to maintain a good color after a while and it's also not the cheapest thing to do. Yet alone with my job it wouldn't be even possible in any way *sob*...

So while I was in Hanover, I found those two little cuties at a bookstore near my family's house. I was looking for the cute little firefly (Glowing Ringo) from the NICI Happy Summer collection and the new bat (Sir Simon) from the NICI Halloween collection everywhere here in Vienna, but couldn't find them. I was so happy when I saw them that I instantly bought both. A great addition for my collection! Last week then the new NICI Spring/Summer 2013 brochure came out and there will be even bigger Glowing Ringos this year. Well it's doesn't matter, fireflies have to...

You don't know how I feel every time I am back in Germany and go shopping in a normal supermarket. There is a so much bigger selection of different food, drinks and snacks in comparison to what you can get in Austria in even the biggest supermarkets here in Vienna. There are so many funny, delicious, unordinary and crazy things. If you live there, it feels completely normal, but for me, living in Austria for over 9 now, it's like paradise. Funny things is that you can get almost all the Austrian, a lot of Swiss (except for Risoletto of...

Happy New Year to everyone! I know I'm late, but better late than never! As I already mentioned before, I've been to Hannover/Hanover, Germany for New Year together with Tom to visit my family. While Christmas is THE family holiday of the year for many families, for my family it's definitely New Year's Eve. It was so nice to finally see everyone again after such a long time. Also my godmother came around on New Year and my sister's boyfriend from Switzerland was there for the holidays. We bought a delicious Sachertorte at Vienna Airport. Unfortunately it was not the original Sachertorte from Café...
