Travel Diary Part 2: Hongkong

Hello & welcome to part 2 of my travel diary!

In just a couple of weeks I visited three cities starting with H.... the first was Heidelberg, and the second Hongkong. This entry will be much longer, simply because I spent more time in the city and not just 10 h a day at a seminar :) Though it was a business trip, I was there with two colleagues and we had some free time which we spent sight seeing and getting to know the city. It was particularly exciting for me, because it was my first trip to Asia in general!

Travel Diary Part 1: Heidelberg


Hello my dear readers,

Finally I want to start my 2016 travel diary! It's really been a long time since I've traveled so much and got around like this. But thanks to my awesome job I get to visit exciting new places as part of my work AND get to learn new things. In May this year, I spent a week in Heidelberg, Germany,w here I attended a workshop/seminar for my field. It was a lot of fun and very educational, and if the course is re-organized next year, I might even get to be a tutor! But for now, I just want to show you some of my impressions from my first "official" business trip :)
So this post will be something different for change, no outfit or makeup posts but just some travel blabla :D

Review: DollyEye Rosy Rosa Violet

Hello my dear readers!

It's been a long time since the last lens review - I've had these since winter but because I was working so much I barely found time to doll up and go out, and when I did the light was already abysmally bad. But now summer has come, and the evenings are still bright so I was able to take some photos
for a review :)

With my new raven pendant from Talking To Myself Jewelry

The lenses I am wearing here are DollyEye Rosy Rosa Violet and as usual, they are from Lensvillage.
I picked these lenses because I fell in love with the pattern - as the name of the lens already indicates, it looks like tiny, winding roses. It's really very pretty, and I hoped that the fact that the color fades towards the middle would allow the purple color to blend in with my natural eye color.
They come in several colors and of course with prescription!

A book that changed my life

Last week, German author and blogger Guddy shared a picture asking to "Name a book that changed your life" and since we only recently talked about our favorite childhood books, I was reminded of my favorite book again: The Golden Compass - or rather, the entire His Dark Materials Trilogy by Philip Pullman.

As you can see, the German books are quite old and well-used. We're missing the English version of book 1, I guess I should get it some time soon!

The second time I thought about the books again was when I realized that I forgot to post one day of the #piitstagram challenge (you can find more information about what it is in this entry and my previous posts on my Instagram): to post a picture of my favorite book.

I realized that there is a lot I want to say and typing it all on my phone in an instagram post will not be sufficient. So I decided to write a blog post.
