Spring Activities!

Pic by Franzi.

Those last few days were incredible sunny in Hamburg! I love the clear blue sky above my head as well as the intensive warmth of the bright spring-sun on my skin. The singing of the birds, the bloomy smell in the air. (Oh, and hello hay-fever… Nobody missed YOU.)
What do you plan to do during this new season? Here comes my list with ideas to enjoy springtime even a bit more:

Go to the farmers market and buy a fresh bouquet of flowers for your flat.

Create your own herb garden by planting basil, thyme and parsley on your windowsill.

Make a stroll through your city and get to know the old streets new (we love to walk through Hamburg using this guide).

Make plans for you summer vacations.

Eat more colorful salads.

Have the first BBQ this year.

Make your bicycle fit for the new season.

Take out your spring & summer wardrobe and store away all those thick sweaters, coats and heavy boots.

Create your personal spring playlist 2017 on Spotify and listen to it in the morning while enjoying your first cup of coffee.

(Re-) start a new or old sport. Running, anybody?

Eat ice-cream!

I wish you a wonderful spring week! Enjoy the sun and all those crazy-happy feelings coming with it :)!

Late Summer To-Do’s!

Summer is nearly over – but we still have September. Late summer means wonderful light with long shadows in the afternoon, the last warm days and a bit of melancholy in the air. Thus, it’s time to do all those things that need to be done at least one more time:

Sit one more time in the warm night and have a BBQ with friends.

Preserve something: Make jam or tomato sauce.

Make a bike trip and have a picnic.

Use the rest of your sunscreen as body lotion and scent again your summer vacations.

Create a playlist with your favorite summer hits!

Eat gazpacho.

Meet your friends after work in a beer garden.

I wish you a wonderful start into the fresh late summer week – have a happy one!

Late Summer To Dos!

Another August week started! Looking outside, one might think that it’s already autumn. But NO, it’s still late summer – and will be for the next few weeks. Now is the time to make all the things one loves in summer – at least one more time. I prepared you a small list of things I plan to do… Are there other to-dos on your late summer list?

To all my readers out-there: I worked on my business concept for quite some time now. Currently I participate on a competition called “Gründergarage”. If you would like to learn more about my idea and to support me, please follow THIS LINK and vote for me or comment on my concept and let your friends also know about it. I need as much feedback as possible to make my idea a success. Thank you so much in advance!

I wish you a perfect new late summer week! Have a good one and spend as much hours outside as possible!

Take your friends and make a bike trip together.

A picnic in a cornfield.

Collect blackberries and make jam!

Bake a plum-cake.

Light a fire in the evening and enjoy grilled marshmallows.

Have some more BBQs with you friends.

Have a drink on your balcony, light a candle and enjoy the sundown.

Take one last bath in the lake.

Have some sunflowers on your dining table.

Go to the flea market on Sunday afternoons!

Enjoy all those fruits and vegetables that the farmers market is offering right now: Courgettes, pumpkins, tomatoes, cucumbers, chanterelles, beans!

Go book-shopping …and plan cozy autumn days on your sofa.
