Me & My Umbrella – Essence Limited Edition

Hey my loves,

today’s entry is about the LE “Me & My Umbrella” by Essence. I recently went to my local drugstore and found these products and just had to have them.

First of all, can we talk about the cute packaging? I love it. Very simple yet elegant. And when I tried out the nail polish I was pleasantly surprised. I needed one coat of polish, one coat – can you believe it? And the color is amazing for fall. So is the color of the blush I picked. You know how much I love my mauve rose shades.

Changes & Surprises – The Next Step

Hey my loves,

it’s been way too long since I’d last written for my blog, for you. I’m so incredibly sorry, but I was just so busy with renovating and moving into my apartment that I could not find time to write content I actually was happy with.

BUT I’M BACK BABES!

In full writing mode! You have no idea how much I missed this – missed writing, thinking about content ideas and producing entries about which I am happy. Though there are going to be some changes around here, because I had some time to think about how I want to progress and what my style is.

There will be two entries a week again, maybe even sometimes three, but only one of them will be exclusive content for my blog. The other one will go live with a surprise I’ve been planning a long time! And that is…

…..I’m starting my very own YouTube Channel!

I can’t believe that I’m actually telling you this now. I always had this idea in the back of my mind, but I never felt quite ready to do so. It will be in English, even though it’s just my second language, but I couldn’t neglect my beautiful followers on this blog, although I’m sure a couple of you understand or are even German.

The Dawn of Inspiration

Now what kind of videos will I do? Well, let me tell you. I see my Channel as an extension to my blog, so I will be posting about beauty and makeup as well as my favorite recipes and even a bit of fashion here and there.

My first video will go live this Friday at 6:00 p.m. (CET). And I want to give you a little sneak peek:

Other Changes

My entries used to go up at 2:30 p.m. (CET), but I decided to change that. They will go up every Monday and Friday at 6:00 p.m.!

I really hope you’re just as excited as I am and that you will come along on my journey! If you like you can go over to my channel and join the family! And I’m always open to video ideas so feel free to comment on my sneak peak video.

I wish you all a wonderful day!

XoXo, Jasmin.

10 Things That Make Me Happy

Hey my loves,

Finding positivity and happiness these days is really hard. It all seems, in a way, like a very bad dream. A nightmare we wouldn’t want to wish on anyone.

But a couple of days ago I found a video on my timeline on Facebook that made me genuinely happy and sparked the flame of hope for humanity once again. It was a video of a group of people singing ‘Oh Happy Day’ in a mall in Germany. It was set up like a flash mob and they were only using their voices, but that particular song and the genuine happiness you felt during their singing was inspiring. Even though it was just under three minutes it made me smile for the whole day. I believe the world should be filled with more spontaneous happy moments like that. Don’t you agree?

And because I was so inspired by this little moment of happiness I thought I would share the things that make me happy with you. So here they are:

My Friends

Friends are the family you choose. And let me tell you I’m so grateful to the friends I have and all the happy moments I share with them. But it’s more than just the happy times that make me happy. I’m grateful that no matter what is coming my way I know I have my friends who have my back, who make me smile in the saddest of times and who endure my stubbornness.

Rain at the End of a Sunny Day

Well, this might sound a bit crazy but just close your eyes for one second and imagine this: You have been out all day on a field picnicking with your friends. It’s super hot and the air lingers without any wind over the ground. But then you can start to smell something. You start to smell the rain coming. And then it starts to rain but instead of seeking cover you enjoy the cold rain on your heated skin. And it’s such a release that the air feels a little colder and fresher. I love that feeling. Don’t you?

Snow

1.jpg

Yes, I know it’s summer but I’m listing everything that makes me happy and snow is one of them. And I mean real snow, the kind you build snowmen with and slide downhill or have snowball fights with your friends. The kind where it’s crispy cold outside but yet sunny enough for you not to be freezing. The kind where you just want to be outside and enjoy the day by strolling through the woods. There’s something about this that makes me really happy and even happier when it’s around Christmas time.

Listening, Singing and Dancing to Music

For obvious reasons. Here are some of the songs I love to hear when I’m happy. And sing along like my life depends on it even though I sing horribly. Check out my Spotify Playlist: The Happiness Playlist

Stupid Jokes

I’m the kind of person who laughs pretty much about everything. But some jokes just get me so much that I start to cry whilst laughing and gasping for air. At if that isn’t happiness I don’t know what is.

A Good Book or Movie

Now this might seems to be odd. How can a book or a movie make me happy, right? But it’s not so much the form or genre it is but rather the endless creativity, inspiration or motivation you can get from them. Would you like me to do an entry about books and movies that inspired me a lot? Let me know in the comments.

The Ocean

2.jpg

There is just something so calming about sitting by a sea or at the ocean especially alone with your thoughts that give me personally so much realization that I can feel whatever I want to feel but mostly just happiness.

The Endless Journey of Finding Myself

When I was younger I thought a main goal in life should be to know who you are. As I’ve grown older I’ve realized something. Just because you are something doesn’t necessarily mean you can’t be the other thing as well. I will never wake up one day and will be able to say I know who I am because I will never know. And I kind of like the idea of that it leaves a door open to the world of the unknown. Not knowing who you are doesn’t mean you don’t know what you want or where you want your life to lead it means you will be able to adjust to anything because you aren’t attaching yourself to any labels or restrictions. And to be able to see it like that makes me happy. Change is good and change is part of your life. And over your lifetime you will change to and that’s completely okay.

Travelling3.jpg

Even though I haven’t done much traveling I do know that it makes me happy. I love adventuring into a new city and explore everything. And getting lost in a city you’ve never been to is somewhat freeing because you never know what you will experience. I love to travel the world one day and see everything and feel everything that there possibly is.

Dreams

To be able to dream is something that makes me very happy. Sometimes you need to escape your reality to create a new one and sometimes they just show you the right way. Dreams make me happy because a dream is not only something you have at night but a goal you can achieve if you work hard for it in the daytime. And achieving your dreams is something very magical and anything magical makes me happy.

And remember you can always choose to be happy. Darkness has no power over you unless you let it have it. Being happy is a choice. I hope you enjoyed today’s entry and if you did make sure to give it a thumbs up. I would really appreciate it!

I wish you all wonderful day!

XoXo, Jasmin.
