What's on my book shelf?

Image
I haven't ever told you that I'm actually a huge bookworm since I was very little. I learned how to read at age 4 because my granny was a teacher and ever since my night stand is cluttered with books. Some of you might know that I'm studying English Literature though, which I absolutely love!
I figured that some of you might enjoy reading just as much as I do, therefore I came up with the idea to show you some of my favourite books that made it onto my night stand this year!

PS: My taste in literature is just as weird as my taste in music. It reaches from teen romance novels to Jane Austen to Crime Thrillers. You were warned.

The Statistical Probability of Love at First Sight by Jennifer E. Smith
Who would have guessed that four minutes could change everything?
Imagine if she hadn't forgotten the book. Or if there hadn't been traffic on the expressway. Or if she hadn't fumbled the coins for the toll. What if she'd run just that little bit faster and caught…

What's in my washbag? Barcelona Edition

This year, my boyfriend surprised me with a very special Valentine's Present!

Last year we drove to Dorset/UK wich was really amazing, but this year he decided to book a lovely hotel  in Barcelona/Spain which was sooo cool since I've never been in Spain! ( Although I still wonder how he managed to organise this all by himself...)

As you're reading this I'll probably be sitting on the plane flying back to rainy London, but in this post I want to share some of the products I've taken with me!








(If you're wondering why there are barely any face products mentioned, that's because I'm making them all by myself! If you want a natural skin care routine post, let me know in the comments below!)


How did you spend Valentine's day?

My favourite Energy Smoothie!

Image
Recently I've been a veeery busy girl trying to keep up with the whole Uni/Acting/Blogging hurly burly and I have to say I'm quite proud of my achievements so far. Although I love what I'm doing and I wouldn't change it for anything in the world, sometimes it can get pretty tough handling so many things at once. I'm barely leaving my office anymore except for lectures or filming; I'm either trying to get Jane Austen's oeuvre in my head, spending hours analysing The Great Gatsby or learning scripts... One thing that has definitely saved me is self-made smoothies. I usually just throw stuff in the blender and experiment which combination of fruit tastes nice, and by that I have discovered the probably best thing I've ever drunk! I'm calling it the 'Energy smoothie' since it gets my head clear and makes me feel motivated and energetic! It would have been very egoistic to not share this with you since some of you are probably facing Uni Stress …
