What to wear in a city where summer means a constant change of sun and rain? I went for a combination of shorts and a canvas jacket to adapt to the nordic climate in Hamburg. That was before I remembered the harsh wind that blows through every alley of this city. Truth is, I can't really think of any outfit that would be suitable here except from a Jack Wolfskin overall and a pair of rubber boots. Not exactly my cup of tea...

When I came home the other day after a loooong day of work, I felt that fundamental appetite for some comfort food I get now and then. As you probably know from my last food posts, I do enjoy cooking and baking but I am also a person to get kind of angry when hungry (do other people have that too?), so I decided to go for something quick and easy. Et voilà: homemade pizza. Extra plus: the dough does not have to rise before baking. Of course you can put any ingredients you like on your pizza; I went for a combination of pesto, tomatoes, sweet peppers, cheese and an egg (Best thing on pizza. Really.) Continue reading to learn how to make the dough :)

When I started blogging back in October, I purely saw it as an assignment for university. The original task was to write ten posts within two months and I can remember being pretty scared because I couldn't even think of two things that I regarded interesting enough to share with the world (or the people who read my blog ;)). But now, eight months and seventy-seven posts later, I have recognized that this assignment was just what I needed to finally start doing what makes me happy. I am very grateful for everyone of you who stops along from time to time to just have a look or to leave some nice words. So if you'd like to be directly informed on Facebook when I have posted one of my infamous balcony looks (I really hope, that none of my neighbours ever sees this), preparing dinner student-style or taking black and white photographies in a new city, please like my page.
Thanks for your support ♥

What do you do to relax?

I am a huge fan of eating. And I don't mean the "lying on the sofa eating KFC buckets and pouring cola into myself"-way (Ok, yes. Sometimes I do that too.) but the beautiful "enjoying every single bite and hoping that there is some more of that"-kind. I think it even happend to me twice that food nearly made me cry. In the most positive way then, of course. Most of the time, there is nobody else who could make me cry with their dishes, so I have to try it myself. I would say that I am pretty simple when it comes to cooking; I barely use a recipe (because I am too lazy) and I don't like to cook things that take too long or are too complicated. To me, the best thing about cooking is to come up with something own. So these two recipes are what I have "invented" during the last weeks. If you like to cook with a recipe, you can find them below, otherwise be inspired to create an own one :)

I love smoothies and now that the weather has finally turned warmer I can pursue my passion for my favourite cold drink again. Apart from the normal version with fruits and milk, I have invented my very own breakfast-suitable one. Continue reading to see how it's made :)

Ok, I am more than busy with finishing my degree so I did not really find time this week to read through other blogs and to find the best posts for some blogspiration. So I decided to create a trend board instead.
There is something very special about those gypsy outfits, maybe it's all the colourful details and patterns in them that could make me literally look at these pictures for hours. Or it is the mysteriousness that sourrounds these ladies. I don't know what it is, but maybe you can tell me...
Have a nice weekend :)
