Hen's night

Hey Gals! <3

Last night was Hen's night for a good friend who will get married on September 28th.

I'm totally looking forward because I haven't been at a wedding before. ♥

Of course we prepared a little bachlorette party for her - as a surprise.
It was planned pretty fast and I'm glad that our plans went well.

Something that mustn't be missed is of course some outfit collection.
We decided for the shirt slogan: "Bride Security" - you can see the shirts below:

You see, we have two colors for us and the brillant gold-silver combination for the bride.

I chose the neon pink one because if you want to look a bit special, you DEFINITELY should wear a ... how was it called in English? Only the Japanese word comes to my mind... haha... ah right! ... something BRASH! <3

Sarah made some hair accessories for us, too.

And because I'm absolutely in the mood of black/pink combinations recently, I also decided to do my nails in such a combination.

I love the outcome!! ♥
Do you like the design?!

My hair was a simple updo and my eye makeup... definitely pink. ♥

Pink eyeshadow (My favourite 'freaky friday' one by Manhattan, pale pink lipstick and lipgloss.
Pink and brown are the most fitting colors for me - haha.

☆*゚ ゜゚*☆*゚ ゜゚*

But that wasn't the only thing we prepared...

Of course our friend should have to do something while celebrating hen's night.

One task includes another one:
We sold lottery tickets and one of the prices are "concert tickets".
So the buyer could choose a song out of ten and our dear bride have to sing this (of course in short edit version)

It wasn't easy to choose some songs but in the end the tracklist was the following.
I put the links, too, so you can check out the songs

Some songs are just for fun and very well known here in Germany (Er gehört zu mir, Biene Maya, Mein kleiner grüner Kaktus), some are lovey-dovey songs and others are with some special meaning - you know, ' fly me to the moon' was the ending for the anime of Neon Genesis Evangelion and often sang in different versions? Most of us old hands have been being fans of this series from almost the beginning. <3

Well, but what if the bride can't sing the songs because of a lack of lyrics?

No problem!
I designed fastly a song book the day before!
For a two hours work from 10-12pm I am totally satisfied.

☆*゚ ゜゚*☆*゚ ゜゚*

We surprised our dear bride right after her theater practise - before I met with Jassi because I still needed a tiara, a crown or a veil for our friend. 

Thank God, shops like Deko Behrendt exists!

Afterwards we went to McCafé for a drink (I love the Mix Frappés - I had a vanilla frappé with caramel and Twix <3) and talk.

We hadn't been able to talk like this for weeks~

Around 7pm we left because of meeting in front of the youth club where our bride and friend Ina has her theater meetings.

We managed to distract her a bit, dressed up with the shirts and hair accessoires and finally gave her a clue about what's going on.

Of course she already noticed that something was going on. ~w

It was hard to motivate her in first place sell lottery tickets but in the end she got used to it I think. ;)

☆*゚ ゜゚*☆*゚ ゜゚*

Finally we arrived at the Karaoke bar Singcity

☆* Review *☆

Of course it's a western styled bar but it's okay since you have a lof of couches for your own group of people.

The bar prices itself are okay, although it's a pity that you can't buy any snacks.

As an entrance fee you have to pay 3€ but that are the only costs you have to afford.

The files are full with songs from the 80s~today and also a lot of German Schlager songs.
They also have a few Disney and musical songs, you just have to look them up.

The stuff is really nice and you also have some show effects like a fog machine and different light effects.

It's nothing for you if you don't like singing in front of other people (at least the stage is big enough that you could stand as a choir there. -w

All in all it's a nice and cheap possibility to go karaoke but in my own opinion I don't like the audience very much (see my report below).

☆*゚ ゜゚*☆*゚ ゜゚*

Because 9pm is still early the bar was almost empty so we could sing as often as we wanted to.
I love karaoke! <3

We had a very funny time!

But around 11pm-1am the bar got pretty crowded with people - and a lot of them couldn't sing right anymore because they were already so drunk.

I also didn't like the people themselves who came then... you know, teenagers where you don't know if they already 18 or should be lying in bed and feeling so cool... seriously.

You AREN'T cool. (_ _)

We went home around 0.30am - I was already too sleepy.
Ha... I'm not used to be up late anymore. ^^;

Purikura talk // Another Meet up

Hello everybody! ♥

I'm really happy, being on vacation ~ (=⌒▽⌒=)
It's so nice to meet all of my friends since a long time! ♥

I will really miss it when I have to work again... but whatever.
It's still a long way until when. ;)
I will enjoy the free time and I really notice that body & mind condition are getting better again.

Please, always try to stay healthy - don't let the stress get caught of you!
Eat enough, sleep enough, have enough fun!

Nothing could be more important than the own health!

☆*゚ ゜゚*☆*゚ ゜゚*

So, yesterday I really did it - I bought the stickers. ♥
And I'm still very happy that I did so!

They are absolutely adorable and sooo cute!! (●´ω`●)ゞ

Sometimes I still can fall in love with these kind of things.

That's why I'm happy to have penpals - they can send you a lot of cute stuff!
But I'm always ashamed that it's pretty hard to get cute or cool stationary stuff from Germany...
or that it's so expensive that you really can count this as a gift! (T▽T;)

I want to send cute & cool things, too!! (>_<)

--> Well, here they are!!

Sakura - mochiro~n!!

Apes can be so cute - but I'd rather like them
as drawings, not in real life. ^^;

These stickers were called "Eichhörnchen" - 
but for real, dear German people:
Children will wonder why our squirrel don't look like this!

And huskies! ♥
I love dogs and this kind is sooo adorable!!

☆*゚ ゜゚*☆*゚ ゜゚*

So and for this month, this is the last purikura shooting! (〃∇〃)

We decided for two different layouts but after choosing one of them with closed eyes I got the full length one!

For my friend it was the first time using a purikura machine but in my opinion she did well! ♥
(And I felt that I've gotten used to it again - it's getting easier for me to vary the poses ^^)

Of course we chose the friends' course and after taking the pictures we really used the whole time for decorating and trying out different things. 

So the full length-shot is a bit plain because we haven't had anymore time ^^;
Still I like plain purikura more than overloaded ones.

☆*゚ ゜゚*☆*゚ ゜゚*

And because we're already talking about purikura machines...

If you're interestes in the different purikura variations, tips about using the decoration mode or about posing, I want to recommend you this blog:

Samantha writes reviews and give interesting insights into the purikura world!
Please take a look (and maybe get inspired). 

☆*゚ ゜゚*☆*゚ ゜゚*

But this reminds me...

While putting my new purikura to my album, I took a look at the others, I've made since 2009.
Guess, you can see the almost the same person everytime. -w

It's my very good friend Nadine ~ ♥
Love you sweetie!!

She introduced me into purikura in December 2009 and since when we always made some when I was in Hamburg.  :*:・( ̄∀ ̄)・:*:

The machine was a pretty old one, I guess but I liked the different backgrounds you could use.

We often took the chance for presenting our new Yama-chan and Ryo-kun photos! ~w
That was great. (///∇//)

The last row and the last purikura stripe in the first row have been taken in Tokyo. (≧▽≦) 
There were so many different machines... we couldn't decide at all - lol.

And it was pretty cool for me, because it was the first time that collages were made!
(In the second & third purikura of the last row you could also see another girl us, I'm glad to meet again next spring: Vero. She's our purikura genious! ~♥

But you see... isn't it great to collect a lot of pictures with your friends?
I don't want to miss these moments!!

And you can see different hairstyles of mine - see that I also had longer pigtails around 2009?
That's my goal again - have longer hair. Maybe I will make it, haha. (*゚.゚)ゞ

☆*゚ ゜゚*☆*゚ ゜゚*


Happy Birthday, Nadine!

Visiting Asian Art museum // Meet up with a friend

Hey Gals! ヾ(@°▽°@)ノ

Yesterday I met my dear friend Sarah - we haven't seen each other for a long time. ^^

We decided a long time ago to go to the Asian Art Museum in the city but haven't made it until today.
So this was finally the time to do so.

I have to say that I really like to go to museums - I really love to discover some rarities, getting a closer look on the backgrounds, etc. (〃∇〃)

Because I'm also interested in Asian art and craftwork (most of all Japanese) and Sarah likes that, too, it was clear we have to take a look there someday.

Of course the first sections about South Asia and Co. were interesting but rather than looking at different Buddha statues I prefer graphics, fashion and dishes.

I should have taken some pictures of the Indian graphics.
These are so adorable!! ♥
It's minimalistic style but it's just astonishing to see how they could draw/paint at such small sizes of paper! (≧▽≦)

When I got into the Japanese section (and I lost Sarah there somehow because the arrangement is some kind of labyrinth), I really was happy.
What did I see?
Well... take a look. I took some pictures here.

On some days of the year they also held a traditional tea ceremony show.
I really would like to watch this! ♥  (●´ω`●)ゞ

☆*゚ ゜゚*☆*゚ ゜゚*

After three hours of walking through the museum's halls we were so hungry that we went for a restaurant.

We both love Indian cuisine and so we went to the restaurant Amma.

☆* Review *☆


As always the Indian restaurant is pretty colorful. You could sit outside, too, but I prefer the quiteness inside.
The restaurant itself is pretty clean, the chairs are comfortable and everything makes a simple but a good impression.


The menue has got a lot of different dishes. Starters, soups, appetizer, ...
You will have to choose from a lot of possibilities.
The prices are okay - we both paid for two meals, drinks and starters around 24€ - a normal price in my opinion.

☆ Service

I don't like waiter who try to flirt with you just as a joke.
Really, that's not necessary in front of a client.
Nevertheless the service was excellent.
They serve fast and they ask you if everything's is alright and whether you're enjoying yourself.

☆ bottom line☆

Atmosphere: ☆☆☆(☆)
Service: ☆☆☆☆☆
Food: ☆☆☆☆
Price: ☆☆☆☆

Total: ☆☆☆☆

All in all it's a nice restaurant with very delicious meals.
Today Sarah ordered Chicken Curry and I ordered Chicken Saagwala - Chicken with a spinach, ingwer and garlic sauce. The chicken was so tender, the sauce not too fat or spicy - great! ♥

☆*゚ ゜゚*☆*゚ ゜゚*

Afterwards, Sarah had to go to idee.
That's a German shop for decoration, drawing and other kind of stuff.

She needed something for her next cosplay and while looking at different stands I had to stop at the stickers' one.
There were so many cute stickers that remind me of Japanese ones!! (///∇//)

I could have bought everything!! (●´ω`●)ゞ

Here are some examples - you know what I mean? I just love them!!

But still it would be a waste to buy them because I wouldn't use them - of course. >__<
Still I wish for these cute stickers!! (T_T)
Life can be so unfair - haha.

(Maybe I will buy them nevertheless tomorrow?!
Argh! I shouldn't!
I have to spend too much money this month because of some preparations, medical stuff, A LOT OF BIRTHDAYS!, etc. ...)

☆*゚ ゜゚*☆*゚ ゜゚*

Oh and we had to go to the J-Store, too.

We shared some purikura - and Sarah got the problem that she wore green pants today, so... it went blue with the green screen. xD

I really like the outcome of the purikura! ♥ ≧(´▽`)≦

☆*゚ ゜゚*☆*゚ ゜゚*

Finishing with everything we decided to drink some coffee (or better White Chocolate) at Mc Donald's and then headed back home.

☆*゚ ゜゚*☆*゚ ゜゚*

It was such a funny and interesting day! ♥

We both hadn't had such a wonderful one such a long time.

Don't stop the music ... do you?

Well gals...

... after having an 5 hours sleep because I'm still in my working mode, I'm more than awake. <3

So yesterday was a very funny evening, we danced a lot, although the beginning wasn't the best.

This time's party was held in the Adagio, one of Berlin's famous clubs, where also celebrities go to party. ^^;
You can say that the location is much more pimped up than others.

I really like that you have a  lot of sitting options (if you book early enough) and the toilets are also pretty clean! (Yeah, have to mention it because I've seen ugly ones before...)
One misfortune are the high prices for drinks.
Seriously people, even if I have the money I won't buy a simple Coke for 4,50€ / 0,2l.
Cocktails and other alcoholic drinks are around 7-10€, that's pretty normal.
It's not cheap but usually a normal price.

Lisa and I - just a shot in front of the great mirror <3

Well, and how did it begin?
After paying the entrance fee and wondering if we are at the right event (because there wasn't a certain sign that we ware - no mentioning about K-Pop on the Adagio website) and chatting with two other girls, I met my friend Shuki and we keep wondering about the whole thing because the audience was a bit... off from K-Pop.
You know, you expect something else... but there were a lot of older and 'normal' people. ^^;

Since the music didn't start until Midnight, Lisa and I decided to go to McDonald's because we wanted to have some softdrinks but didn't want to spend too much money.

After half an hour we went back and finally the music started.

Because it really was a mixed event they played a lot of US music / clubsounds but that was totally okay, because the tracks were well chosen and you had remixed 80s or 90s songs, as well.

But when time passed we were a bit nerved because the rhythms were all the same and we hoped that Duca Dan would take the lead soon.

Then he came - and we were all whistling and cheering up - his session was more than good! ♥ (‐^▽^‐)

Since it was a mixed event you wouldn't have a lot of typical songs like SNDS' "Gee" or SuJu's "Sorry sorry" - It was more focused on club sounds but I was really happy about the following parts:

* 2NE1 - Do you love me

* Troublemaker - Troublemaker

* CL - The baddest female

* G-DRAGON - Crayon

* SNDS - The Boys

And there was a little interlude of SNDS "Genie", too - and of course a lot of other mixed up songs. <3

Oh, and you know... in the evening was G-DRAGON's birthday! (thanks to the time difference) ♥
So it was a nice little special to play one of his songs! ~w

We had a lot of fun then but when the DJs changed again and finally we decided to leave the party around 3am.

All in all it was a nice event, we really danced a lot but I'm definitely looking forward to the next party that will contain ONLY K-Pop.
It's great to have such a location but I'm not into these typical 'high society' looking and acting people...

☆*゚ ゜゚*☆*゚ ゜゚*

And what did I do today?

Met a friend and having lunch at our favourite restaurant Mikoto. <3
As usual we ordered a non-alcoholic cocktail / a Mango lassi and some sushi.
I wasn't so hungry so I decided for these sake-avocado inside out rolls only!

Since my friend's a little sad at the moment I wanted to give her a small present to cheer her up.
So I bought these two little keychains when I was at the shop to make some purikura.
These two girls are so cute, aren't they? ♥ (〃∇〃)
We planned to cosplay them but I don't know if we will ever make it! ~w
Who do you think I planned to cosplay? Chie or Yukiko? ;D

Do you even know "Persona 4"?
Acutally it's a game for the PS2 but it did become an anime, too!
By the way: A GREAT and FUNNY anime! (≧▽≦)
Please watch it, if you have the chance! I totally recommend you this! ♥

☆*゚ ゜゚*☆*゚ ゜゚*

By the way these were my outfits for yesterday's party and for today:

☆*゚ ゜゚*☆*゚ ゜゚*

Recently I also wondered what to do with my hair on hot days or while working since I don't like wearing such a small ponytail.. (_ _)
I looked on Youtube and the rest of the internet but most of the hairstyling tips are for long hair - and mine is medium length. ^^;

But then I found that nice video I want to share with you know - the styles are really easy to do, even if you haven't got a lot of experience with hair stylings.

The only problem is ... of course you don't see the backpart of your head!
That's always so annoying... (T_T)

☆*゚ ゜゚*☆*゚ ゜゚*

From tomorrow on will be a busy week:
appointments, hen's night, fantasy filmfest, ...
I'm looking forward to meet all my dear friends again! ♥

Byebye! ♥

K-Pop Party // lil' haul Aug

Hey Gals!

So it's weekend! ♥
What will you do today and tomorrow?

As for me, I will go with my friend Lisa to the K-Pop party in the evening - so it's almost time for dolling up. (^_^)

But before I needed to make some courses... first stop our local shoe store and second stop the drug store.

At first I wanted to wear my black pumps but even after trying to widen them they are still a bit too tiny. Unfortunately. (T_T)

They made of real leather but the shape of the sole isn't made for any more widening.
I have to sell them, I guess...

It was real luck that I found another pair of simple black pumps that are fitting perfectly. ♥
Nothing special but such ones are also important and they will good to dance with.

☆*゚ ゜゚*☆*゚ ゜゚*

In the drug store I just wanted to buy blistering plaster (just in case) but I ended up with some other items, as well.

Manhattan has pretty nice nail polish colors right now! ♥

I'd like to buy almost everything but I decided for a metalic-petrol and some cool pink-purple glitter one. (I will show some pictures later)
So for tonight I wear a black base with glitter on my nails. ^^

☆*゚ ゜゚*☆*゚ ゜゚*

I also have a lack of bracelets in my jewellery box.

That's why bought these here, too.
I really like the combination of different bracelets. ♥

☆*゚ ゜゚*☆*゚ ゜゚*

And here's a flower hairpin!

I really thought of buying the neon pink one but the shape and the craftwork wasn't the best (You could see the awful glue!) and the shimmering lilac flower looks nice! ^^

☆*゚ ゜゚*☆*゚ ゜゚*

So... what now?
Well... as I said - dolling up and getting ready for the party!! ♪(*^ ・^)ノ⌒☆

I'm no party girl but from time to time I really like to participate in one and dance the whole night long! (*゜▽゜ノノ゛☆

So our goal for tonight is: 4AM!
I wonder if we can make it...?
At least the music must be good else we will go home, soon!

☆*゚ ゜゚*☆*゚ ゜゚*
