Have you had a merry little Christmas?

Hey Gals! (/^▽^)/

How did you spend this year's Christmas?

I hope you had a merry time with your loved ones!
What did you get as a gift? ♥
Or did you receive many gifts?

As for me I couldn't celebrate Christmas at all thanks to work - So I just spent some time at Christmas Eve in the evening with my parents.
I was too tired so I just wear some comfortable stuff.
No photos are needed to be seen.^^

Anyway... we're handing out the presents.
It was pretty easy to get presents for my parents because they've written a wishlist.

But I really haven't got any wishes since a lot of things I want to have, I have to order online and they don't know the websites or seller. ^^;

So I wanted to be staggered!

That is our Christmas tree.
It's around 5,2" tall, so it's smaller than the one last year
but trees really got more and more expensive.

Some wrapped Christmas presents

I received really nice things - Most of all my cute plushie Oscar! (≡^∇^≡)

Usually I'm not that much into plushies anymore but Oscar the owl is just cute!

Since I sent one to a penpals child to Japan, I really wanted to have one for myself, too!
Now I got it! ♥

And the funny part: You can turn his head around! (~ ̄▽ ̄)~

My dear Oscar owl - and the Nightmare Before Christmas book! <3
I love the story of Jack & Co. so much and have been a fan for years now!

I also got the next collection of Kanji-cards.
They are pretty damn good but I wonder when I will start to study them at all? :')

Some other little things and 20€, too, that I spent today for another vinyl.
I love vinyl - really! The sound is so much better! ♥

My two dear penpals also sent me presents.
That was so wonderful!! T///T

From Azusa I got a pair of pretty cute ribbon earrings.

My mother also got a present from her and her little son chose something, too - a jewellery holder.
We first thought it's a photo frame. Haha.

Presents collection!

Chie wrote on the note for customs "2x hand creme" but in the end there was something else inside:

Beautiful wrapped up Anna Sui hand balm cream and nail polish! ♥

Wow! (´⊙ω⊙`)!

Anna Sui herbal hand creme and nail polish.
The cosmetics are pretty nice wrapped up! ♥

Before Azusa also sent me some a big Christmas package (you lovely crazy one!) with handy and cute things. (≡^∇^≡)

For example plush gloves that keeps you warm and a winter shirt with the Union Jack.

First I wondered how to wash it with the fur sleeves but in the end I figured out that you can just unbutton them.


Guys, thank you that you thought about this twice!

And some Christmas decorations for my room - haha.

I love decoration stuff but I don't like to collect them at all because I haven't got enough space to store them! (T_T)

Mistletoe Christmas Bells

A reindeer

A tea-light holder my mother brought me from a Christmas Market today.
It shows a little scene in town during winter / Christmas time.

In this photo it looks a bit scary, doesn't it?

☆*゚ ゜゚*☆*゚ ゜゚*

So, the next days after Christmas until 02nd January are FREE TIME ♥ o((*^▽^*))o

I have been looking forward to these six free days so much to relaxe and recover.
I'm not in my best shape because of work.

What will you do on New Year's Eve? 
Will you have a party with friends?
Or is clubbing more your style? 

Have you already decided your what ot wear?

I still have to think about it but I guess Make-up will be with a glitter part since I want to try out my new Anna Sui nail polish, too. ^^

☆*゚ ゜゚*☆*゚ ゜゚*

So here's my last message of this year to you:

Please spend a nice time on New Year's Eve!
Have a great time with your loved ones or with yourself!
Think of the good things, this year had for you and keep
them in mind as a basement for starting the new year! ♥

Any New Year's resolutions so far?

I will start with one on 01/01 here in my blog!

Byebye! ♥

Popteen issue 12/13

Hey gals!

Today as promised some impressions of the December issue of Popteen!

The special part about hairstyling was nice but I really wish that there there a lot more stylings for medium hair, too. ^^;
For gals with long hair it's good to know how to style it well but girls with medium hair can't do most of the shown stylings - It's simply not possible or it doesn't look good on shorter hair.

Another big topic was is the "doll style" which I really like.
In the magazine are a lot of ideas of styling and make up to doll up yourself - literally.

Well, here you are.

The cover really is a girly one, isn't it?

Liz Lisa and Ank Rouge are my favourite brands (that never fit my body measurements).
This winter's outers are just too cute and lace dresses or AR's red dress in the second
scan are too adorable! ♥

Popteen's girls show their winter hauls and talk about clothes & accesssoired
that can't be missed this winter.

I really love Eririn's stylings but most of all her beautiful brown hair. ♥
The red shoes are really cool!

☆*゚ ゜゚*☆*゚ ゜゚*

☆*゚ ゜゚*☆*゚ ゜゚*

Different stylings for daily life and school.
Lovely braids! ♥

☆*゚ ゜゚*☆*゚ ゜゚*

And some snaps again!
You know this is always my favourite part of magazines.

☆*゚ ゜゚*☆*゚ ゜゚*

There were many more interesting pages but in the end I really was too tired to scan them all.

So, tomorrow I'm having my last working day and when I've got almost a week of holidays!
I will tell you about my Christmas then ~♥

Got a few nice surprises!

Montag, 16. Dezember 2013


Dear Gals,

I'm so sorry that I haven't written anything since the beginning of November!
Life keeps me busy but most of all just because of work...

So there isn't anything exciting I can tell you at all - really.
I didn't even bake one single thing for Christmas because lack of time... (T_T)

There are a lot of hardships with friends at the moment and I'm trying my best to keep going as my usual self.
But I have to admit it's hard.

Well maybe I can write a little summary about the last weeks, excluding work.

☆*゚ ゜゚*  JLPT in December 2013  *゚ ゜゚*☆

People who are interested in Japanese may know this language exam.

It's the "Japanese Language Profiency Test" and is hold twice a year - in summer and winter.
You can choose between five levels (N5 is the "easiest", while N1 is the hardest; it is often told that you need N2 for real working in Japan).

I really was motivated to sign in for December in July and thought that I've got enough time to study but I couldn't. In fact I only could started repeating stuff a week before the test!

Such a shame! (_ _)

And I think it was a little bit more difficult than two years ago.
Let's wait for the result in February if I passed but that would be more luck than anything else. (T_T)

☆*゚ ゜゚*  Christmas cards  *゚ ゜゚*☆

Right now I'm trying to finish my Christmas cards that I have to send tomorrow - there will be approx. 10 cards.

Really, I'm no card writer type but because recently I can't answer the letters of my dear penpals properly, I really should send them some greetings!

It was hard to choose cute ones - I really looked for typical old German card illustrations.

☆*゚ ゜゚*  Christmas presents  *゚ ゜゚*☆

My parents really had a hard time this year because I didn't have any wish at all.

I don't want any academic books, clothes or jewellery and I also don't want any DVDs, CDs or games for real. Most of the things I wish for are stuff that you can't buy.

But it was easy to choose a present for my mother and my father since they wrote a wishlist.


☆*゚ ゜゚* Dorama *゚ ゜゚*☆

Recently I looked for intersting dorama on the internet and got most stuck with anime.
I really wanted to have a "Strawberry Night" Season 2 and I want to watch "Aibou" Season 12 so badly but non of these will happen in the near future.

Then I started to watch "Nihonjin no shiranai Nihongo" to improve a bit in Japanese while watching foreigners living in Japan, being teached by a popculture-woman.
That was funny though I didn't want to sit the whole dorama with my notebook, taking notes. ^^;

My all beloved Ryo-kun also didn't have such a good dorama, as well (and I desperately wait for "Dakishimetai" in February).

So right now I ended up watching "14 sai no haha".

It's about a 14-years-old's pregnancy.

Somehow I'm really interested into teenager pregnancies and moreover in gyaru mama.
It's not about getting pregnant but more about coping with this decision to get a child and be responsible for it. Maybe it's also because I'm working at ob-gyn right now.
(But I still can't get along well with children - haha.)

☆*゚ ゜゚*  New Year's Eve *゚ ゜゚*☆

What will you do at New Year's eve?
Usually I celebrate New Year's coming with a small bunch of people but this time I will only celebrate it with a good friend I've known for almost 10 years now.

We still don't know what to do, celebrating at home or going clubbing but I guess we will find a nice solution! <3

I will definitely wear my blue dress then!

It will be very nice since we haven't been celebrated together for four years in a row now!

Next entry will be about some scans of the December's Popteen issue!

Bye-bye! ♥
