Recently I made a strange discovery in my bathroom: I saw that my bath towels are full of stains. I couldn’t explain it, but then I thought a little bit about it and finally solved the „mystery“: After brushing my teeth I normally wash my toothbrush (because it’s an electrical toothbrush) and dry it with my towel. So those stains are from the toothpaste. The first thing I did was to put my towels into the washing machine. I just hope those stains go away. And from now on I will be more careful when cleaning my toothbrush. Don’t get me wrong: it’s not that I would be disgusted or something. It’s just not pretty having so many stains on your towels. Just think about when you’re having guests at home…

At the moment I’m watching my favourite TV series “American Horror Story”. I just love this show: the actors, the themes, and most of all the looks. I love how they jump between the decades (and sometimes even the centuries).
So one day you see a great 70′s look with cool retro sunglasses; and in other episodes you can adore sumptuous baroque dresses or similar things. No wonder this series is awarded every year; the jury is absolutely right doing so. And it’s so suspense-packed! I just can’t wait for the next episode! Today I read that the broadcast station already has ordered a fourth season. You can imagine how happy I was, hearing this. Because this is one of the few shows that get’s better with every season.
A few days ago I was shopping with two girlfriends of mine. Well, the truth is that just one of them was visiting me and stayed in my flat. But then we decided to go sightseeing and made a short break in the town centre; there we met another friend of mine by hazard and decided on short notice to go for a little shopping trip.
So since one of my friends was constantly complaining about the cold we went looking for gloves for her. Although she tried lots of them on, none really had the correct size (because her fingers are so long). But in the end I at least bought a pair of cool sports trousers. I just hope that my motivation for going into the gym comes back with those new trousers. Because the last weeks I’ve been really lazy…
When I studied fashion journalism once, one of our teachers told us, she washes her bedroom sheets every two weeks. She told this like „Well, but who on earth doesn’t? Everything else would be absolutely disgusting!“ I just looked down, saying nothing; because I surely DIDN‘T wash them every two weeks; not even every three weeks…
But lastly I changed and now I wash them quite often, too; maybe it’s because I don’t iron them afterwards – and that way I realised that it’s no big deal at all; I put them into the washing machine together with my towels and that’s all. No effort – no problem. So, my former teacher would be proud of me, hehe. And now excuse me please – I have to take me bedsheets and put them into the washing machine.
As far as I know men do really often complain that they can not wear handbags without being laughed at. Well, I understand their problem at a certain degree: they always have to put their wallet and cellphone and whatever else a man can drag around in their trouser pockets.
But on the other hand: there are lot’s of bags for men too: so why don’t they buy a leather messenger bag for example? This accessory looks good and seems quite practical. OK, I admit, you wouldn’t bring some messenger bag to the opera or similar events; whilst a purse also there is an absolute normal thing. But well – you can’t have everything, right? So be a man – and get over it. And don’t forget that you have lots of other liberties that women oftentimes don’t have!
Did I already tell you the best thing that brought my laser-eye-surgery? Well, obviously it’s the ability to see now – without needing any specs or contact lenses. But I meant fashion-wise. In my opinion it’s the fact that I can finally wear trendy sunglasses. Because before surgery I could only wear very few sunglasses, that were suited for those special glasses with dioptres. And as you can imagine those weren’t the latest trends in the sunglass-world.
So now I enjoy sitting here with my bikini and sexy sunglasses whenever I want (of course only if the weather is on my side) and seeing all the nice guys at the lake or wherever I may be. And this freedom was absolutely worth the money I paid for my new eyes.
What a great feeling! You have no idea how great a hot shower can feel if you didn’t experience the same things as me (I think I already wrote enough about this topic in my last entries…).
So I just wanted to inform you that I’m at home now and that I am enjoying warm water again. I can’t tell you how happy I am. Because in the meantime it has gotten really cold outside; so I am already wearing my sweaters anyway. Just imagine there was just cold water ; I would fall ill in seconds, I think. Or I could just shower with a scarf put on or something similar, hehe. And since this is nonsense of course I believe you can understand my happiness about the possibility to have a normal shower. You only realise how much you miss something when you lose it, right?
Sometimes I really am a little stupid: working (and hence living) in this boarding school I totally „forgot“ that my own flat is in the same city. Or better said: in my direct neighbourhood, actually. So one of my colleagues recently asked me: „Hey, you live nearby, so why don’t you shower at home with warm water?“
That moment I felt totally dumb; I was thinking so much about my work here that I didn’t realize this simple and logical solution… And it’s not just that the water is hot in my own home; there I also have all my nice bathroom accessoires and fresh towels. So if the problems with the water come back I’ll just hop on my bicycle and enjoy a nice warm shower at home; or even maybe a full bath…
I think I already told you – but I’m so unhappy with my iPhone 5! It really has a bad battery life and its mobile reception isn’t any better… I already went to the Apple store, but you know how they are, don’t you?
So in the end I got a super-expensive cellphone at home that can call people – sometimes. At least there are cute and stylish mobile cases, which I can use to hide my awful phone, hehe.
But seriously: I’m thinking about buying another smartphone and leaving Apple behind. I already did this with my notebook – and haven’t had regrets for a second. Well, I’ll go check if my provider has some special offers at the moment and then I will make my decision. But I think we as costumers should show the companies that we’re not content; or else nothing will change.
A few days ago I went out for drinks with a good friend of mine. I know her from school and I really like her a lot – but she studied abroad, first in France ant then even in China; so I practically lost contact to her. But now she has finally returned – and it’s as if she had never been away! We get along as great as in the past; it’s really wonderful!
Well, back to the thing I wanted to write about in the first place: when we met my friend had a beautiful leather bag with her; it was a small purse, but with enough space for all the important things. I asked where she bought it, but she had it from one of her travels. I hope I’ll find a similar piece here in our city; well, if not, I still can look online of course.
