Pink Pineapple| Arty Monday 

I am enjoying this series on my blog so so much!! I love to be creative and I finally started painting again at the beginning of November. I really forgot how calming it is and it’s just such a nice thing to do and yes! I am a little bit obsessed with it.

As most of you know I am doing an advent calendar for my mum this year. I am nearly finished with it but I also wanted to incorporate a painting I drew myself. I think that’s just something really nice to do and something really personal.

 

My mum loves pineapple so I went for a pink, pastel, pineapple-y theme. I really hope she likes it! I am really happy with it and yes, can’t wait to give it to her.

If you’re wondering how I created this piece, I basically coloured the whole thing pink and blue. Then I printed a photo of a pineapple. I placed the pineapple on top of my painting and then took a red colour and painted on top of it. After that I let it dry and added glue onto the pineapple shape. I took some gold glitter and sprinkled it over that area and finished was my painting.

November favourites | Glücksgeist 

It’s time for my November favourites! I was quiet busy these last days so I didn’t find the time to write this post. But I love reading these so I really wanted to write mine.

Apps

At the end of November they released Animal crossing for your phone. I was super excited to start playing it and played it for hours because it is just too good. I really want to play it with my mum because we used to play it together as a family.

ASOS

I bought all my Christmas presents on ASOS and had so many packages arriving at my house. I finished all my Christmas shopping and all I need to do is start saving some money now ;). But ASOS has some really great stuff so I am really happy with what I got for my family.

Baking

I really enjoyed baking this month. I baked some cakes, millionaire shortbread, gingerbread men and just had such a good time doing it. I always forget how much I love baking so it’s really nice to start it again.

Beauty

My mum ordered some stuff from Rituals and because she spent a certain amount of money she got two perfumes for free. She gave one of them to me and it’s my favourite perfume now. It smells so nice and fresh and the packaging looks so cute too.

I got shorter hair now as you probably know so I am still figuring out how to style it the best. One thing I love to do is blow-dry my hair upside down. It gives my hair so much more volume and it looks super nice and soft.

Books

I got a few new Hanni und Nanni (St. Clare’s series) this month and also re-read the ones I already had. I love this series so so much and I loved reading every single book I have again. It takes me back to my childhood and I just love it so much.

Food

I loved eating Broccoli this month, I know, call me crazy. I always loved eating Broccoli but we jus stopped having it for dinner for a while. I told my mum that I really want to eat it again and we had a Broccoli filled November which I loved.

I was also super obsessed with lemon cake in November. My mum has this specific cake tin wich you can put in the microwave so she baked a ton of delicious cakes this month and the lemon cakes were my favourites. Really want one right now!

I also ate so many Bounties in November. I always loved them and really fell back in love with them this month.

Movies

I watched the movie ‘Ramona and Beezus’ so many times this month. I absolutely love this movie. It’s one of my favourites and I really enjoyed watching it again because I haven’t seen it for quiet a while.

And I watched the Fack ju Göhte movies this month too. They are so funny and just such good movies, love them and the last one was too emotional!

Music

I had a huge huge obsession with James Bay this month. I saw him live about one and a half years ago and he is just amazing. I loved listening to his album on my record player. It made me feel super happy.

Random

I started to paint again in November. I haven’t painted for years and I am so happy I started it again because I really missed it. I love to be creative and I really missed being that. I have so many paintings which I painted myself on my walls now and I love looking at them. It makes me really proud that I created them myself and I am so happy you like them too.

I also loved my colouring book this month. I had so much fun creating all these different pages and colour schemes. Such a fun thing to do and super calming as well.

I also really enjoy using my instax mini camera at the moment. I ran out of films but my amazing mum got me some for my birthday this year and now I can finally take some photos again. They always turn out so cute and I love having them as a little memory.

Youtube

I discovered a new youtuber in November and omg, so obsessed with her. Her name is Rosie (MsRosieBea) and I absolutely love her channel. I became super obsessed with her, in a good way. I started painting because of her, bakes some goods because of her and had a Rosie-outfit week which was so much fun. I love watching her videos and get super excited by her new ones.

I also absolutely loved Tess Christine’s Ireland travel vlog. She got engaged in Ireland and I was by far too excited by this. Tess is one of my all-time favs so I am really looking forward to her upcoming vlogs.

And I am also super obsessed with Niomi Smart. I am writing this in December so Vlogmas has started already and Niomi’s vlogmas is one of my favs. Love Zoe’s, Tanya’s but at the moment I get the most excited by hers.

I also loved watching/listening to Dan and Phil’s live streams. I always loved watching them but I fell back in love with them. Especially their gaming channel is one of my fav things to watch.

And I watched Lucy and Lydia’s Disney vlogs like crazy. I really want to go to Disneyland one day because there vlogs look like so much fun. Love these girls so much and yes, been super obsessed with them.

 

And that’s everything I loved this past month. I hoped you enjoyed this post. As always let me know what you loved this month in the comments below.

1000 followers |Q&A | Glücksgeist 

I still can’t believe it but I hit 1000 followers a few days ago. I am super happy and still so excited! Thank you to all my lovely followers for making me so happy!

I asked you on Instagram if you would like to see a Q&A and so many of you said yes so here it comes, my special 1000 followers Q&A:

simpleserenity

What kind of blog posts are your favorite to read and write?

I think my favourite posts to read are Outfit posts. I don’t really know which posts are my favourite to write… mmmh… maybe my arty monday ones?

Which country is next on your travel wish list?

Scotland/Ireland

aricouture

Who or what draws the most inspiration for when your taking pictures and writing your blog post?

At the moment Instagram is a huge inspiration to me, people like MsRosieBea or just brands upload amazing content and I often get an idea when I look at their photos. I never want to copy anybody so I just get inspired and do it in my own style and try to incorporate as much pink as I can.

stelakoc

What advice would you tell your younger self?

Probably to care less about what other people think or say.

Favorite place you have ever visited to?

I visited some amazing places, I really can’t choose one. I loved the village in Denmark we’ve been to quiet a few times, I love England so much and loved our holidays there and also Finland is an amazing place to be.

adviceagers

One question is what is it like living in Europe and have you ever traveled somewhere far from home?

Well it’s cool I guess and I like that it is a little bit more easy to travel to different places.

What kinds of topics are bloggers attracted too?

I mean it always depends. If you’re blogging about beauty people who like to read that are probably more likely to read it then people who just love to read baking posts. I would never blog about a certain topic which I don’t like, so just blog about what you are passionate about.

alittlemadsmith

I absolutely love your photography style, your photos are some of my favourites that I see when reading blogs! Do you have any tips or would you say the styling of your photos just comes naturally to you?

First of all thank you! When I started blogging or just created my account on Instagram I noticed straight away that my photos never looked as good as all the other ones. I never really tried to recreate them which I think is quiet good, but after literally two years I just sort of got it. I would never say my photos are perfect but I think I really found my style over the years. One thing I can’t recommend enough is taking your photos with natural lighting and I also think a nice white background is perfect and makes your photos look really good.

blah~blah chessboard | arty monday 

I can’t believe this is my third art related post. I clearly enjoy painting at the moment! I love to share what I painted with you, so I am super excited for you to see today’s painting.

Processed with VSCO with a6 preset

As you know Rosie from MsRosieBea inspired me to start painting and she also inspired me with this painting. In her background she has this pink neon light which says Blah, Blah. I really love the look of it and wanted to get something like this myself, but then I thought I can recreate this with a painting and that’s what I did.

Processed with VSCO with a6 preset

I am really proud of this painting. I can’t say it’s my favourite one because I love all my paintings but I am really really happy with this one. I love the chessboard print that’s really in at the moment, so I really wanted to add this to my painting.

If you read my bullet journal posts you will know that I created a bucket list a few weeks ago. One of the things I really wanted to do in my life was to film a video and upload it to Youtube. I don’t care about numbers and this might be the only video I ever upload, but I really wanted to share the process of painting this picture with you.

I love the way my video turned out and I hope you enjoy watching it.
