MEMORY LANE. | Happiness. | January - June.

 "Don't forget to smile today. "



Let's take a little trip down memory lane. A few blog post ago, I mentioned a new "habit" of mine. A compliment, a conversation, an event, a photo, a song? Doesn't matter WHAT made me happy during the last 6 month, I wrote it down and put it into a jar. I started in January and I was surprised how full it actually became. Now, as half of the year is over I wanted to share some of those with you. :) (And I'm so excited to open them now!!!) I will write them down shortly and without any (too) personal details. Maybe they will motivate you to also collect little memories of your life. Enjoy! :)



-  I finished a successfull workout.

- Got invited to a prom.

- Full points on a test. 

- The sweetest birthday message from a good friend of mine who (unfortunately) lives far away.

- Cinema night with my cousin, where we spontaneously met someone and had a conversation during the whole film

- Trip to Budapest with a friend.

- Great lunch in the city. 

- A special "happy new year wish"  and an additional sweet message! <3

- Surprised a friend at his birthday party and his reaction was super sweet :D

- Productive day at uni.

- Good job interview and lunch + ice cream with two friends afterwards.

- My birthday dinner with my closest friends.

- New Year's Eve celebration.

- My first working day was really good!!

- 4km morning run and watching a sunrise.

- A compliment from my aunt.

- A beautiful winter walk with a friend + taking some pictures.

- Finally made a dentist appointment after too many years and I survived ;)

Sorry, they are not in order, but looking back I think I already made some beautiful memories this year. I wonder what the second half of the year will bring. :)

What I love at the moment. | JUNE 2015.


"Overthinking is the biggest cause of our unhappiness. Keep yourself occupied and your mind off things that don't help you.
Be optimistic. "



 A while has passed, but I'm back with monthly favorites. At first, I thought it will be hard to find things that I REALLY loved because of the stress I had (still have) for uni but then I found some cool stuff . During June I bought DECORATION and CLOTHES, tried out new RECIPES, re-discovered FOOD I really love, found a pretty beautiful PLACE and listened to new SONGS.

D E C O R A T I O N
I went to Thalia with absolutely no desire to buy any decoration. But there was a SALE going on with really likeable prices ;). I saw those copper vases (I've generally fallen in love with copper things, I think they make everything look more luxurious and modern). They were like...1€ EACH!!! I mean........

I was planning on buying new workout clothes from Nike for quite a while now. I drove to Parndorf (Designer Outlet in Austria) but couldn't find ANYTHING in the store, which kind of frustrated me a little bit. (BUT I found a really cool workout mat from Reebok). So, a month later I went into the Nike store in Vienna and found 2 items. A workout bh (black/grey ~ 50€) it sits perfectly and it's so comfortable, which is the most important thing. Then, I also found some pants in a really fancy color (turquoise/blue with little dots on it). The fabric is so soft!!!


R E C I P E S
I won't show you specific recipes, but I want to present you 2 books I got for my birthday. The "La Veganista" by Nicole Just and "Deliciously Ella" by Ella Woodward. Both have incredibly delicous vegan recipes in it. I love cooking and therefore I love trying out new recipes as often as I can! :)

My next favorite would be : MAKI. I've never been a great fish lover and so I never eat fish. BUT I love cucumber and avocado maki. Sooo delicous!! Plus, I 'm not a person who goes out for meals very often but this month I've had those MAKI to go twice!!! <3

 It's the first time I'm showing a favorite place in my favorites post. It has been extremely hot here in Austria in the beginning of June. My cousin and I decided to drive to a lake. A friend of mine recommended me the "Neufeldersee". It lies in Burgenland and it's not that far from Vienna, which is great. I LOVED it there. Although there was an event going on while we were there (so it was loud and there were sooo many people) it was a lovely day.
