Food waste: how to prevent/ reduce it + “Sir Plus” shop in Berlin

(ENG/ITA) Christmas is a magical time. Everything feels possible. If we are lucky enough, we get to spend this time of the year with the loved ones, laughing, planning or dreaming about things we can do in the upcoming year, eating delicious treats, listening to xmas songs and feeling cuddled and hugged by hot mugs of mulled wine and colorful lights.

Breaking bad habits and starting fresh

”I guess I got a bad habit, and it ain’t going away…”  The Offspring – Bad Habit

(ENG/ITA)
It’s dark and cold outside. When I wake up at 5.45 a.m. the sun has not risen yet and won’t be rising still for 2 good hours. The world is silent, quiet, at peace, wrapped up in its blanket as the daylight very slowly makes its appearance and gently tells ‘good morning’.

Random chats: life update and learning from mistakes

(ENG/ITA) Hello there. Hopefully this post finds you well. It seems like it’s been ages since I could sit down and write. Oh I’ve missed my mornings writing for my blog. It calms me in a way I didn’t know it was possible. I’ve been working like crazy in these past couple of weeks (#workworkwork), had problems with a tooth that finally seems to be okay now, got a cold, so I didn’t want to add more things on my to-do list considering my free time has shrunk. Now everything is back to normal, at least before the whole Christmas craze begins (if you work in retail, you know what I mean. I’m with you ❤ ).

So here I am, again, hopefully you’re still here.

Here’s a quick list of things I’ve been looking forward to during my busy working days, to help me calm down and maintain some kind of mental sanity:  Continue reading “Random chats: life update and learning from mistakes”

Playlist Autumn 2017: what I’ve been listening to

Oh autumn, beautiful autumn. The first time you step on a carpet of colorful leaves. The first time you curl yourself up in your coat. The first time you taste anything with pumpkin. The first time when resting on the couch while reading sounds more appealing than doing anything outdoors. The first time the chilly, crisp air Continue reading “Playlist Autumn 2017: what I’ve been listening to”
