A Saturday afternoon in Hannover, on the lookout for a cup of coffee.

Today´s December 1st and I can start to think over Christmas, now that turning in my master thesis actually comes in sight for real. sometime this week. YAY! So, I thought I´d start Advent with my wish list.
Powerbank from Lepow - ca. 28,48€.
The look doesn´t matter that much, as long as it´s small. But the idea of charging my phone on a train or generally in places where no socket is in sight is intriguing. This powerbank from lepow got good reviews.
GoT, Season 2 - amazon, 40,33€
I already have season 1 on dvd, now I want season 2. As with cds do I think it´s good to buy the series and movies I like - in order to show my support f. ex.
Die alte Dame, die ihren Hut nahm und untertauchte - amazon, 18,99€
This is a book from, a finish writer, not available in English as far as I know. I hope that it is similar to "The 100.year old man who climbed out of the window and disappeared".
Miss Dior Chérie
I don´t think that I ever would get this perfume as a gift, as it is quite expensive. But it smells like one in a million and I would treasure my bottle.
Vase - dawanda, 24,64€
If you come here more often you know that kitsch is my guilty pleasure.
... sweater - dawanda, 66€
Isn´t it pretty?
I have to admit that these are expensive too. But I listen to music daily, often with my iPod, and headphones break so often. I really could use new ones.
The truth is that I already got my gift last September: my trip to Spain. You can see pictures from my trip on el Camino here. I start to get away from the idea that I always have to get things I can touch and put somewhere. Memories and pictures are so worthwhile too. It´s a bit boring to know I´m getting though.

This is the most beautiful thing I´ve come over lately. Ane Brun covering Halo, in my opinion so much stronger than Beyonce´s version. I´ve always thougt of Ane as an outstanding artist and singer, but this is especially awesome.
The song has had healing powers for me, I´ve been listening to it on repeat for a few days and my heart slowly started to feel light again.

I had a diy night the other day, we made laterns from paper.
In Germany it is a tradition to make lanterns and walk with them outdoors during the dark time of the year, ususally during fall. Mostly it is done by children with their parents. But who cares?
I made this matryoshka lantern, with a pattern I drew myself. First I wanted to make an owl, but the body turnded out a bit different and simply screamed for a little doll.
This is what we came up with. The snake was made before, and modeled for us. ;)
Of course did we take the lanterns out too, it was really fun and nothing was set on fire. ;)
I think I might use my lantern as a decoration from now on, because I think it turned too out cute not to be displayed. And if stay in the room, it will be save - especially if I put the candle into a little glass and then into the body.
What you need:
- an idea/a pattern, selfmade or f. ex. downloaded
- thick cardboard
- transparent paper
- wire, for mounting the stick.
- a stick
- a candle, I used a tea light and it worked fine
