Hey Sweeties <3 Sorry for being absent for sooooo long. I really wanted to write about something, but lately my life hasn't been all that interesting. And right from the moment when I had something to talk about I just couldn't find the time to write an entry. So today I will talk about the most recent things like our upcoming Hogwarts-Style Halloween dinner, my smaller sisters birthday and something I bought today. Tomorrow is Halloween and as none of my friends planned anything, we decided to just have a decent dinner at home with our parents, my boyfriend and a friend of ours. The starter will be pumpkin pasties and a brie that's wrapped in puff pastry with crackers to dip into the cheese. As maincourse we will have pork chops, lovely potato ghosts, glaced carrots and a salad. Finally the dessert will be a chocolate berry trifle that I already prepared today. What I planned was a lot bigger than what I am actually allowed to do,but I think it will be a nice evening anyway and maybe we'll go to some bar afterwards too. :D The biggest disappointment was that I will not be able to do the butterbeer right. I really hoped that I would be able to get the right liqueur, but it's like looking for something that hasn't been invented yet... For now all I have for you is a picture of the not finished trifle, as I will add the last layer tomorrow to be sure that it looks really fresh and yummy. After finishing this post I will prepare the pumpkin for the pasties and make some pumpkin juice too. I'm really excited how it will turn out.On Saturday it was my younger sisters birthday. She turned 17 and after work we went to Linz and had some drinks at an awesome cafe. We all tried to look a little bit gyaru-ish and I got a lot of compliments on my hairstyle, but unfortunately I forgot to take pics. It was a lot of fun even though there were some... let's call it small problems throughout the night. And now to the last thing in this post. A few weeks ago I decided to buy a UV-lamp in order to be able to do my nails better. I found a really good one on a german page that's part of a starter set. It's quite cheap considering what it costs to have them done at a studio. I also ordered a UV-nailpolish sealing lacquer which is said to protect your nailpolish from splittering or getting scratched and other things so that it lasts up to weeks instead of days. I'm really excited to see how bad I am at doing my own nails :DD As soon as I receive the package I will try to find some time to do a quick review on it and show you the outcome of my first try. As it is getting really late I'll end this post here and tell you about the rest of my last week in another post. I hope all of you out there are fine and noone is sick. For now I wish all of my lovely readers a great Halloween! Love, M.

Hey sweeties <3 Today I met a friend after university. I know him since summer 2009. I had bought a magazine about Japanese Lifestyle called "Peach" and in each volume there were two or three readers featured. When I read that he was from Linz (which is quite near to my hometown) I just had to send him a message. about a week or two later we met for the first time and became really good friends. On sunday there will be a concert by Versailles ~Philharmonic Quintet~ in Vienna and he is attending too (as are some more of my dear friends <3). So we met today because he needed some special parts for his outfit which I fortunately had at home. We went to a quite new mall, which is called "Lentia City", in Urfahr, which is something like the north district of Linz (yes, this sounds way cooler than it really is XD). We had drinks and sweets at the Mc Cafe. Here's what we got:

Hey sweeties <3 University started yesterday and I had my chinese course on monday. Unfortunately it's always on monday and wednesday 10.15 am which means I have to get up very early but on the other hand I don't have to stay there as long as I had to during the last semesters. (Back then the course was from 17.30 to 20.30 which ment I came home around 10 pm) It was kinda shocking when our Zhongwen laoshi entered the classroom and didn't really use more than ten german words... so many unknown vocabulary @.@ but I'm kinda used to hearing chinese words I don't know all of the time as my nan pengyou is chinese too. so enough bragging with the little chinese I already know and on to the original theme of this post. I wanted to check my youtube to see if there were any intersting new uploads from YAK Films (yes I am addicted to dancing [altough I really suck at it myself] and I love to see the newest stuff from Le Twins [who my boyfriend showed to me]) and got distracted by a nailart tutorial. It was about a autumn scene nailart which is really cute but then I spotted the newspaper nailart and I loved it right away! Here's my result: here and here. Love, M.
