Back to Reality



My 3 weeks in Germany, Austria, Luxembourg, and the Netherlands went by way too fast. I'm back since Tuesday night, and VERY much back in the daily routine.

I flew into Louisiana Tuesday evening at 8:30pm, and went back to work the next day already. Tough one! The jet lag going TO Europe is usually worse, but this one coming back was a bitch anyway. Germany is 7 hours ahead from where I live over here, so that's petty much the opposite time of the day. Well. Almost. But you get the concept. Anni tired.

Today is Sunday, and I slowly feel as if I'm back in THIS time zone again. I actually wanted to start posting some pics already, but I cant't. I almost died a few minutes ago, realizing my folder with ALL my pictures from the trip wasn't on my Dropbox, nor on my computer. My brother came to the rescue, and checked the SD card I used over there... HALLELUJAH! Everything is still on there. But now he has to do a file transfer one day this week. I'm just super happy I didn't lose all my photos. I was this [-----] close to a nervous breakdown, right here in the coffee shop. Dang.

On top of this post you can see a little preview of what to expect! There were tons of very very magical moments during my trip, but this up there was one of the most breathtaking ones. Stay tuned!

Oh and during my trip I already quickly put together the 2 clips below. Nothing spectacular, but I hope you'll enjoy anyway!

Later! Happy Sunday!

The Calm AFTER the Storm: More Shopping!

This post is endorsed by UncommonGoods.com - nonetheless: all opinions are my own. Enjoy!

No Place Like Home Pillow // HERE

Here we are. Day four after Christmas insanity. I hope you all had a wonderful time with your loved ones? I spent Christmas in Germany with my whole family, and met up with my best friends. I've had a great time, but I have to say:
I am not used to this freezing cold weather anymore! First thing I bought in Germany was a super long and warm woolen cardigan. It's currently my best buddy over here.

One of my favorite things to do after Christmas, is doing a little shopping, especially for myself. Finally! Have you heard about UncommonGoods yet? It's your place for personalized gifts and overall lovely and unique items.


UncommonGoods


Lately this is my go to platform for online shopping. If you research UncommonGoods, it most definitely will become your favorite place to do online shopping as well. It's an overall great company. Their mission is as follows:

At UncommonGoods, we're working to change the way business is done by making sustainability a part of every decision we make. We're steadily working to make UncommonGoods more environmentally friendly, socially responsible and an ever-more rewarding place to work.

The focus is on sustainability. The merchandise they offer is a creative and exciting assortment. Suppliers are everyone from artists to small manufacturers. Handmade, recycled, and organic products can be found throughout the website. If you want to know more, just click HERE - read their "About" and fall in love with a GREAT company.

The pillow pictured above is from UncommonGoods. I love how a few new pillows can change the whole look of a room. Re-decorating your home is so much fun, and you can find something for every taste, age, gender, craziness level... you name it... in the Home Decor section here.

There are a few birthdays coming up in January and February as well, so I am currently looking for a few gifts on UncommonGoods. Geez - It feels as if gift shopping never ends, right?
