Since 2013, my guilty pleasure has been one direction ๐Ÿ™ˆI know! I'm totally reliving my teenage years! But the reason has mostly been because of a certain mr Styles! And guess what. He has released his first single as a solo artist called Sign of the Time and let me tell you I'm hooked! Not because it's his song, but because it reminds me of something I can't explain. Like an old memory of something good. I don't know what it is, but it had me listening to it non-stop. It's so much better than I expected and I'm so ready for solo Harry to take on the charts. I can't wait for his album later this year and his new movie. Because let's face it, he's more of my guilty pleasure than 1D ! ๐Ÿคฃ However, I've also been listening to Zayn's music and Niall's single. I guess they are just all finding themselves in their own music and that shows. They all have a lot of potential as solo artists, and I'm glad we finally get to hear them on their own!
If you haven't heard the song already go listen to it here:

And if you've already listened to it go listen to it again and again so that Harry can finally get his number one spot on Spotify that he deserves ๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿป

Yesterday, I was supposed to do a lot of homework. I didn't. Well, I did end up reading more than thirty pages of our latest novel in class, but that was it. Instead, I got caught up with the new Netflix series #13reasonswhy.

It is based on a book that some of you may have heard of, and some of you may not. I had heard of the book before, but haven't read it. However, I do believe that the series stays fairly close to the book, although the year of the plot has changed from the book to the series.

Now, I'd love to give away the plot and show you the trailer to the series, but I won't. I didn't watch the trailer beforehand, and I'm sure it made the experience even better as I had no idea what was going to happen (Apart from the most obvious things).

I'll tell you some things about the series, though. But without giving away too much. It evolves around a bunch of High School kids. Some which you come to love and others which you come to hate. The plot starts off with this seventeen-year-old guy named Clay (the male protagonist) who finds a lot of tapes on his doorstep. 13 tapes in total. These tapes all have a very important message, and they explain the title of the series 13 Reasons Why. If you absolutely don't know what the series is about then I have to prepare you, it touches some very serious stuff. I will not recommend people under the age of fifteen to watch this. But if you are above 15 and are looking for a new series to watch, you should definitely give this a go. I will warn you, however, you'll get addicted, but it's quite short. (I finished in a day).


To make everything better, I enjoyed the series with tea, cantaloupe and some chocolate. What better way to spend your Sunday? Or Monday for that matter ;)

Hope you'll enjoy it as much as I did.

As I mentioned in this post, I did some shopping in Berlin. Here are some pictures of the things I bought.

I honestly have no idea if this book is good, and I don't know the writer, but the backside of the book really caught my attention, and I could not help but buy it. However, I have to wait quite a long time before I get enough time to read it as we're reading quite a lot of books this semester. I'm in the middle of my seventh book, and we've only been going for two months. So with a lot of other readings too, I barely have time to read for pleasure. But I'll give you a heads up once I'm done with it (whenever that'll be). However, let me know if you'd like me to do a book review of the books I have read this year so far.

As you can see I've also bought some chocolate. Because let's face it l, I'm obsessed with everything sweet. And to my luck chocolate and sweets in general are so much cheaper in Germany. Perhaps it's a good thing I don't live there, if I did I think I'd grow fat.

A friend of mine recommended this mat lipgloss from Body Shop, and so far I really like it. And guess what, that too is cheaper in Germany.

I guess I've always had a love for nail polish, and I really like this brand called Sally Hansen, and just like practically everything else they are also cheaper in Germany which is why I bought three๐Ÿ˜ฌ

I bought the phone case, cover thing (whatever you'll like to call it) at The Green Market. It almost matches one of my phone covers as that one is also pink. I just thought it'd be a great protecter for my phone whenever it's in my bag with keys and such.

That's all for now. I hope you enjoy your week.

I sincerely apologise for the silence on the blog lately. I've been busy with my studies and I went to Berlin last week to visit my sister. She's staying there all of March. She just wanted a holiday with her friend. The perks of being educated! I can't wait 'till I finish my studies in 3.5 years ๐Ÿ™ˆ well technically it's 3 years and a few months, but still, I have a long time left, unfortunately.
Anyway, I went to Berlin for four days, and it was such a good trip. Although, public transportation is very good in Berlin, it was really convenient that sis has a car! It made a lot of things much easier and saved us some time which was good considering I only had three full days there. We didn't do a whole lot while I was there, we just relaxed, had some nice food, went to the cinema (twice) and saw some markets. And of course we shopped. My sister however, shopped more than me, though normally it's the other way around.
By the way if you go to Berlin at the right time go to The Green Market. It's only held four times a year (one time for each season), but although it costs 3 euros it was totally worth it, though there were a bit too many people. It's very cozy, and it has a lot of different food tastings. You can read more about it here.

Here you can get a little glimpse of my trip.

These pictures were taken very close to where we were staying.

The cathedral.

By the way, I haven't been to Berlin for almost nine years, so it was nice finally being back. I feel like I'm unintentionally doing a Europe tour ๐Ÿ™ˆ I mean first, London, then Paris and now Berlin. But hey I only live once, gotta make the best out of it right?

I went to the cinema with a friend to watch Lion, yesterday, and let me tell you it was so good! I cried though, even if I tried holding back my tears. The leading role is so cute. He's this little boy, named Saroo who's just adorable, and him as an adult isn't bad to look at ;) I don't know if any of you have watched Slumdog Millionaire, but Saroo as an adult is the guy from Slumdog Millionaire, Dev Patel. I must admit getting older and growing a beard and letting his hair grow has really suited him. Adulthood looks good on him. So yeah he's fit, the boy is adorable and the whole plot is just amazing. It's based on a true story, I won't tell you what the movie is about though. You can watch the trailer below and get your own idea or instead trust my words and go watch it, you won't regret it. It's such a beautiful movie.
Have a lovely Sunday.

Finally it happened. I went to see the movie everyone's been talking about. I must say it was so not what I expected. Don't get me wrong, I really loved the movie. However, it does have some cliches. The movie is funny at times, but also very emotional. Due to the atmosphere in the cinema there was a time where I completely stopped breathing. I must say it had a lot more dance than me expected and I Emma Stone and Ryan Gosling are not the best singers, but that made it all the more real. I do think it holds an important message. Believe in yourself, have dreams and never stop trying. I do think that is an important message. Nothing comes easy but if you try hard enough you can make it! Don't forget to make dreams reality.

In case you haven't already wAtched the trailer here's the link. Btw the soundtrack is really good!!

Recently, I found a link to these foot pads that are supposed to reduce cellulite while detoxing your body and minimise headaches etc. And I kept thinking if it's that easy then how come everyone aren't using them. I mean if it has all these beneficial factors they would be good for everyone, right? Well as I suspected it's just a scam.
Don't let yourself get easily fooled and watch this video in case you don't believe me.

Ironically, I had no idea it was pancake day, yet I ended up making pancakes nonetheless. I seriously haven't made pancakes in more than 6 months, so I'll call it a coincidence.

Here is a recipe on how to make pancakes though unfortunately, they don't taste like my dad would make them. Anyway, I know some of you are thinking 'hey those are called Crepes', but in Danish, we call these pancakes, and those that are thicker we call American Pancakes. So here you go ;D

Ingredients:

Salt

50g butter

2.5 dl flour

4.5 dl milk

3 eggs

oil or butter for the pan

Melt the butter and let it cool down in a bowl while you mix sugar, salt and flour, add the milk and stir, then add the eggs and at last you add the butter.

Now heat up a pan with either butter or oil (I used coconut oil) and then take a big spoonful of dough (depending on how big your pan is, you'll probably need more). Let it cook until nothing is fluid anymore before turning it over to bake on the other side. Somehow, I always mess up the first one. But I know how to flip the pancake in the air, which is better than using a spatula as it easily breaks if you do so. However, this takes practise and you gotta make sure the pancake isn't sticking to the pan orthis won't work.


I should perhaps have cooked this a little longer, but this is actually how we eat pancakes in Denmark, we tend to roll them up with either powdered sugar or marmalade. You can, however, also add peanut butter, bananas, syrup or whatever you prefer. I even had want with ice cream ;)

Hello. One of my friends thinks she spends too much time on her phone, especially Instagram and she introduced me to this app called Moment. It tracks the hours spent on your phone. Now if you're listening to music and the phone is locked it won't count, but everything else will. So if you think you are spending too much time on your phone, maybe you should download this app (or any similar app) too and see how much time you actually spend. Now for me it's not so much about spending a lot of time on my phone. I'm more curious to know what take up most of my time because I do actually use my phone for other things than social media like reading and writing. Apparently though, there is an app to track the usage of each app too. How did people survive without smartphones? (Add sarcasm) it seems there's no longer anything you can't do.

Have a nice week.

It might sound cliche, but I don't think it is said enough. Do what you love and stop worrying about everyone else. I know it's hard, but reaching someone else's goal is never going to make you happy. For a long time, I thought if I just do one thing or another it'll be enough. Or maybe if I do this... I'll finally be good enough. But that's not how it works, people always expect more of me and I'm tired of it. So I've stopped trying to be the person other people want me to be. I've chosen the education I wanted; instead of the one expected of me, and that has given me some peace of mind. Because I'm doing what I love and not caring about others in this decision. If being you and doing what you love is not good enough I don't know what is. You gotta put yourself first, always, because otherwise how do you expect others to when you don't know how to do it yourself? Besides living your life through someone else is not a life, so do what you love and don't ever feel bad for doing so.
