Midnight Ramblings // Mitternachtsgedanken

Hey my loves,

Hallo meine Lieben, 

you know at times like these – it’s currently 11:43 pm as I’m writing this – I always get lost in my thoughts. I’m a night owl, so I tend to stay up later than others, but as for the last three months I’ve been going to bed quite early – well, for me at least.

zu Uhrzeiten wie diesen, es ist gerade viertel vor 12 abends, verliere ich mich immer wieder in meinen Gedanken. Ich bin eine Nachteule, was meistens bedeutet, dass ich viel länger auf bin als die meisten, aber für die letzten drei Monate muss ich sagen, dass ich für meine Verhältnisse früh ins Bett gegangen bin.

I’ve been so busy and on my feet constantly that I didn’t have time for thinking for a while now, but I guess that’s good for me. Because I tend to overthink things a lot. Are you like that? Overthinking used to be such a huge problem for me, not that I had to overthink anything for that matter, because to be honest, my gut feeling always turned out to be right and thinking of all the other possible outcomes or whatever usually just gave me a major headache than anything else. But you know how it is…

Ich war so beschäftigt und ständig am tun, dass ich überhaupt keine Zeit hatte zu denken, aber auf eine gewisse Weise war das sogar gut für mich. Ich tendiere dazu alles zu überdenken, sehr stark zu überdenken sogar. Seid ihr auch so? Dieses ganze Überdenken war ein so großes Problem für mich, nicht das ich zwingend alles überdenken musste, weil um ganz ehrlich zu sein, war mein Gefühl meistens richtig und das Überdenken über die ganzen Möglichkeiten oder was auch immer, hat mir meistens nicht mehr gebracht als Kopfschmerzen. Aber ihr wisst ja wie das ist…

But tonight is a night where I kinda got some time to myself. And I have to admit I quite enjoyed it. The next, um let me think, 5 or 6 months are going to be tough. I’m in my second year of Uni (well, actually more, but if you want me to get into that, let me know) and since I kinda slacked the first year a bit,  because of moving out and other timing issues, I now have to write six papers. Which, let’s face it, is an awful lot to handle.

Aber heute war endlich mal wieder ein Abend, den ich nur für mich hatte. Und ich muss gestehen, ich habe es richtig genossen. Die nächsten 5 bis 6 Monate werden so anstrengend. Ich bin in meinem 2ten Studienjahr (eigentlich viel weiter, aber das ist eine lange Geschichte, aber wenn ihr wollt, dass ich euch darüber berichte, sagt Bescheid). Da ich leider ein bisschen zurück bin, weil ich im ersten Jahr durch meinen Umzug und andere Dinge einfach nicht dazu gekommen bin, muss ich sechs Hausarbeiten schreiben. Was so krass viel ist.

But I can’t change the fact, because I want to stay inside the three years and for that I have to do it. And usually if I set myself to something, I do it. Most of the time. But we’ll see. Next week Uni starts and it will all begin, but I’m excited to get back at it. I like being busy with school and I always feel like my summer term is so much nicer and easier to handle. Must be the sun, don’t you think?

Aber das kann ich jetzt nicht ändern, vor allem wenn ich in den drei Jahren Regelstudienzeit bleiben will, muss ich es tun. Und normalerweise schaffe ich alles, was ich mir als Ziel setze. Naja, fast alles. Aber wir werden ja sehen. Nächste Woche geht die Vorlesungszeit wieder los und ich muss sagen, ich freue mich richtig wieder zurück zu gehen. Ich habe richtig Spaß an den Unisachen zu arbeiten und ich finde auch, dass das Sommersemester irgendwie einfacher zu handhaben ist. Muss wohl die Sonne sein, meint ihr nicht auch?

Would you like me to talk about my Uni experience or which degree I’m aspiring to get? Because I could easily write a couple of entries for you. If you have any questions, feel free to comment and ask them.

Wäret ihr interessiert daran, dass ich euch über meine Uni Zeit berichte und welchen Abschluss ich mache etc.? Weil ich könnte ohne weiteres ein paar Einträge dazu verfassen. Wenn ihr irgendwelche Fragen habt, stellt sie mir gerne in den Kommentaren.

Now enough of my midnight ramblings… I wish you all a good night!

Jetzt aber mal genug von meinen Mitternachtsgedanken… Ich wünsche euch eine gute Nacht!

XoXo, Jasmin.

Overthinking

The art of creating problems that weren’t even there.

 

Enjoying The Beautiful Weather // Frühlingssonne

Hey my loves,

Hallo meine Lieben, 

I’m sort of back to blogging now. I’ve been and still am super busy, but here and there are always a couple of days where I may find the time to write for you guys. There won’t be an upload plan like I used to have since I don’t want to put that kind of pressure on myself. Other than that just one thing will change, and that is that I now will post bilingual.

Ich bin sozusagen zurück beim bloggen. Ich war und bin leider immer noch sehr beschäftigt, aber hier und da werde Ich die Zeit finden, um für euch zu schreiben! Es wird nicht wie sonst einen genauen Terminplan geben, wann ich poste. Ich möchte mich einfach nicht so unter Druck setzen. Des Weiteren wird sich nur noch eine kleine Sache ändern: Ich schreibe ab sofort in Deutsch und Englisch.

For those who don’t know me, I’m Jasmin and I am a student from Germany. So my native language is German, not English.  I hope you guys are cool with this! I would love to know where you guys are from – tell me in the comments.

Für die, die mich nicht kennen: Mein Name ist Jasmin und ich bin Studentin in Deutschland. Meine Muttersprache ist also Deutsch und nicht Englisch. Ich hoffe ihr seit damit einverstanden, dass ich jetzt bilingual schreibe. Mich würde es auch mal interessieren, woher ihr alle kommt – erzählt es mir doch in den Kommentaren.

Now this Friday I went out to my friends city, which is about one and a half hours away from my hometown, to spent the day and night. It was such a beautiful day that we decided to go for a walk alongside the river. We ate ice cream and then walked back to her home.

Vergangenen Freitag besuchte ich eine meiner Freundinnen in ihrer Heimatstadt, um einen Tag und eine Nacht dort zu verbringen, unsere Heimaten liegen etwas mehr als anderthalb Stunden auseinander. Es war so ein toller, warmer Tag, dass wir uns dazu entschieden haben einen Spaziergang am Ruhrufer zu machen. Wir haben Eis gegessen und sind dann zurück zu ihr gelaufen.

Later that day we ate some Spaghetti and watch a movie. We watched “Logan”, which btw. was so good! I can really recommend it! I had such a lovely time that I wanted to share some of the photos with you and also talk to you about my day! What do you do on a lovely spring day?

Als wir wieder zu Hause waren, haben wir Spaghetti gekocht und sind dann ins Kino gegangen. Wir haben uns “Logan” angesehen, der übrigens echt mega war. Ihr solltet euch den unbedingt anschauen! Ich hatte eine so schöne Zeit, dass Ich sie mit euch teilen wollte. Was macht ihr denn so an schönen Frühlingstagen?

My reading material for the journey is a book I have to read for Uni. Has anyone read it? I kinda don’t know what to think about it. But I haven’t gotten very far with reading. So who knows, maybe I end up loving it.

Das Buch was ich zum lesen mit hatte, ist eins was ich für die Uni lesen muss. Hat es vielleicht schon jemand von euch gelesen? Ich weiß nicht so wirklich, was ich darüber denken soll, aber ich bin auch noch nicht sehr weit gekommen. Wer weiß, vielleicht bin ich am Ende doch überzeugt.

I hope you enjoyed this entry and if you did make sure to give it a big thumbs up and tell me in the comments what you’re plans for this Spring are. I would love to know!

Ich hoffe euch hat dieser Blogeintrag gefallen, ich würde mich sehr über ein Daumen nach oben freuen! Und erzählt mir in den Kommentaren, was eure Pläne für diesen Frühling sind.

I wish you all a wonderful day!

Ich hoffe ihr habt alle einen wunderschönen Tag!

XoXo, Jasmin.

Top 10 Christmas Movies

Hey my loves,

today I am sharing with you my Top 10 Christmas movies. There are only a few weeks left until Christmas and I love to watch Christmas movies every day. When else are you going to watch them, right?

Top 10 Christmas Movies.jpg

Die Hard

The Santa Clause

Scrooged

Elf

The Polar Express

Love Actually

Home Alone

Miracle on 34th Street

Four Christmases

How the Grinch stole Christmas

I do have to say that Scrooged, Elf, Love Actually and How the Grinch stole Christmas are my absolute favorites! I could watch them on repeat! If you click on the title of the movies it will transfer you to Amazon! :) Also I know that Die Hard seems to be an odd choice for Christmas, but it always is on TV during Winter time and the action in the movie is happening around Christmas, and who doesn’t love Bruce Willis.

And I have to admit something… Scrooged only has been on that list since last year, because that’s the first time I watched it. Yeah I know, what were I thinking? But I didn’t think about it until a friend recommended it to me. And I love that movie!

What are your favorite Christmas movies? Tell me in the comments.

I hope you enjoyed today’s entry and if you did make sure to show it some love. I would really appreciate it!

I wish you all a wonderful day!

XoXo, Jasmin.

November Favorites – 2016

Hey my loves,

today I am sharing my November favorites with you! I can’t believe the year is almost over, it feels like we just started it. Don’t you agree?

Now, before I start to get all emotional about how the year’s a passing way to fast, let’s kick off my November favorites of 2016.

Magnetic Notebook

I love this notebook by Paperchase so much! I use it in Uni to keep all my notes in one place and it’s just so pretty that I love working with it. The sad part is, that it’s almost halfway full and I’m dreading the day it is actually full. If you are on the hunt for good and cute looking notebook definitely check out Paperchase’s products. I bought mine here: Paperchase|Paperchase Gothic Garden Magnetic Notebook

Marshmallow Heaven

Now this one was a birthday gift I got from one of my best friends and it’s actually a body cream, but I have been using it as a hand cream. It smells like marshmallows and it’s super moisturizing, I absolutely love it!

Monki – Liquid Liner in Goldy

If you have seen my My Everyday Winter Makeup Routine than you will now that I have been using this whenever I can, so naturally, it had to be in my favorites this month. It adds just the right amount of glam to your eyeshadow look and what I love even more is, that it’s buildable, you just have to wait between the layers. I bought mine on ASOS, but they are sold out, but you can still get them here: Monki| Liquid Liner

Maybelline – Fit Me! Matte + Poreless Foundation

I love the Fit Me! range by Maybelline, so I had to try the matte formula of their foundation and I love it! It’s super buildable, lasts all day and still leaves the skin with a natural glow to it, even though the formula is matte. You can buy the foundation here: Look Fantastic| Maybelline Fit Me! Matte and Poreless

NYX – Full Throttle Shadow Palette in Color Riot

We all know, how much of a fangirl I am about NYX products, but I mean, come on, that palette is not only gorgeous but incredibly easy to work with! I love that it consists of three matte shades and one glittery one. You can create so many amazing looks with it and it’s perfect for Fall and Winter. I love that cranberry color so much! You can buy it here: NYX|Full Throttle Shadow Palette – Color Riot

NYX – Blush in Intuition

This was gifted to me by the same person who gave me the body cream. And I immediately fell in love with it! It’s an amazing color for Fall and Winter time, because it has that shimmer to it, but doesn’t overcompensate too much. Definitely one of my staples this season! You can buy it here: NYX| Blush in Intuition

That were all my November favorites! What were yours? Tell me in the comments, I would love to know. And also, if you want to check out my October Favorites, you can do that here: The Dawn of Inspiration|October 2016 Favorites

I hope you enjoyed today’s entry and if you did make sure to give it a thumbs up and don’t forget to tell me in the comments what your November favorites were.

I wish you all a wonderful day!
