EGOtalk: The Magic Of Airplanes!

Hi Egos, I hope your holidays were nice, the food delicious and your presents exactly what you like! These past days were exciting and exhausting at the same time. I feel like I'm back to normal but then again normal isn't really the right word. 

Right now I'm writing to you from a small town in Germany where I currently am to visit a friend. The decision to come here totally sprang from the moment. One moment we are sitting in a restaurant eating some steaks and the next moment I'm getting up at 3:30 in the morning to go to the airport.

EGO eats: Quick And Easy Christmas Dessert!

Hi Egos, although we've survived those last three Christmas days filled with more food than we've seen all month I want to share this recipe with you.

EGOutfit: Celebrating Christmas!

Hi Egos, I hope you all had a great Christmas Eve! I'm back in my hometown for two days. I think Christmas is a time that is both stressful but can also be a happy time. There usually are some fights between relatives, way more food than anyone can swallow and stories of your grandparents about the old times. At least that's what my family gatherings are like.

My New Apartment: FAIL - You Should Read The Manual First!

Hi Egos, I failed again. Remember my last fail when I tried to make cake pops? I still haven't given them a second... It will happen though!

EGOxperiment: Writing A Diary

Hi Egos, I want to do another experiment but this time one that doesn't neccessarrily include food. You've probably guessed by the title that I want to buy a ranch and have a lot of horses. Just kidding! :D

EGOutfit: Girl Next Door With A Twist!

Hi Egos, here comes another EGOutfit featuring a special guest: Sunlight! Can you believe it? There was sunshine outside! I just had to use this opportunity for an outfit post. Now unfortunately it was a bit windy and I was worried about my tripod. So full body shots where hard to get but let's check out the pictures first!

Pearls are one of these "nice girl" things... They are a symbol of pureness to me. Just like a girl next door.

EGOeats: What This Blog Has Made Me Do!

Hi Egos, New Year's Eve is approaching rapidly and with a new year one takes a look back at all the things that have happened. One thing that has made the biggest impact to my life is starting this blog.

EGOtalk: Do I Love The City Or The Business Trip?

Hi Egos, sometimes I find it really hard to go to work because it's too early, too cold, I have to stay there too long etc. There are numerous reasons why I can't really find motivation on those days. However on some days I can't get there fast enough!

EGOutfit: Sweatpants Are Trending!

Hi Egos, if you're also following some fashion blogs you'll have noticed that there's a new and very exciting trend. Apparently you can now wear sweatpants and are considered stylish :D

I totally love it! But for this look to work you have to contrast a bit too. So here's my take on the sweatpants style. I wanted to shoot it outside but it keeps raining and raining... I think my kitchen is actually quite fitting.

EGOtorial: How To Fight Colds!

Hi Egos, it's the annual season of cold weather and illness again. That's why I want to share a couple of things that I use and do whenever I am sick. Since I'm not a fan of medication I usually go for more effortless methods.

From my experience they aren't always the most pleasant things but they do the job. So here are my top 5 for fighting a cold.

EGOutfit: It's Cold - I Get It!

Hi Egos, you know my dramatic feelings about autumn but seriously is this still autumn or is this winter already? I saw on the news that in some parts of the country there already was snow falling down...

Low temperatures call for one of my warmest coats and my favourite high boots. So here comes the look.

EGOtalk: Underestimating Yourself Is A Waste Of Energy!

Hi Egos, I successfully finished my two big exam days this week. I had three exams on Wednesday and two on Thursday. After all these weeks of anticipation and studying I really feel liberated. Now I have time to relax without getting a bad conscience and feeling like I should rather open another book.

After feeling liberated there also is a lot of excitment. I'm not sure when I will get my results but it will either be some days before Christmas or right after New Year's Eve. Not knowing when the time's up and what results I'll get is such a weird feeling.

My New Apartment: Things I like And Don't Like!

Hi Egos, as I promised I shall give you a quick update on what's been going on in my apartment. I've browsed lots of other blogs for interior design inspirations and DIY ideas that I want to use in some rooms. However with my exams today and tomorrow there was not time to realize them all. 

So here are a couple of things that I love about my apartment right now and some that still need some work or where I have some ideas in mind. =)

EGOutfit: Take A Seat!

Hi Egos, I know I haven't updated you on my new apartment for a while but I've got something planned ;-) As a sneak peak I included this lovely chair that -although very pretty- is mainly used for my clothes :D Bad habits die hard I suppose.

Anyways the main topic shall be my outfit for this post. It's one of these looks that's all about the details. The accessories and the embellishment of the sweater make it stand out even though it's just a sweater, black pants and pumps.

EGOeats: Easy Breezy Carrot Cupcakes!

Hi Egos, today I really want to share these cupcakes with you. Have you ever had carrot cupcakes? Or just plain carrot cake? For some reason that always sounded wrong to me because I thought carrots do not belong in desserts but I've had carrot cake when I was still in preschool and loved it ever since.

There are a lot of things you can do wrong when it comes to carrot desserts because you don't want them to taste too much like carrots but you also don't want to loose their flavour at all. So here's a little recipe I tried today.

EGOtalk: How To Find Your Own Motivation To Study!

Hi Egos, it's time for another uplifting talk, don't you think so? I'm in the midst of preparing for my final exams - seriously once those are finished it's really over :D. While I do realize that is a crucial moment for my future I find it hard to get up and go through all the materials for more than 30 minutes.

I'm not sure what the problem is. It could be that I know most of that stuff - but "most of" it isn't good enough. It could also be that my constant "I can do that tomorrow too"-attitude is getting in the way. When I think about it rationally then I've had 2 very relaxed years. So why can't I work harder for two weeks and then go back to being all relaxed?

It's probably a mix of many reasons but fact is that my future depends on those exams. So here's what helps me get up in the morning to do some studying.

EGOutfit: Welcome To The Dark Side!

Hi Egos, you might've noticed that I'm not too happy about the cold weather but have been trying to make it work. Dressing up also keeps my mood up. However now there's another thing that keeps bugging me. It's the vanishing sunlight. 

One of the reasons I love summer so much is because it stays bright until very late. But fall is taking away that too. With my positive nature I'm also trying to make the best of this season in the light-area. :D So with that in mind I embraced my darker nature too.

EGOeats: Time For Apple Pie!

Hi Egos, to me fall has always been THE time to eat apples. I love apples and all the products you can make with them in general. Be it juice, pie or yoghurt. I love it all! Apples are healthy and can taste so very different. 

As the saying goes: "An apple a day keeps the doctor away". I bought way too many apples and when I realized that they didn't taste too well on their own I decided to make a pie. So I thought apple pies also applied to that rule.

EGOutfit: If Life Was A Movie...

Hi Egos, don't we all love movies? What makes them so great? Is it the captivating plot? The actors? Or just the happy -or sometimes not so happy- ending?

EGOxperiment: Daim Ice Cream - SUDDENLY THE FINAL!

Hi Egos, this will be the last one of this series :D I'm not too excited about the last coffe flavoured one from this edition so I'll leave that one out =)

So the last ice cream cup that I'm going to review is the Daim flavour. Again I'm not sure how many of you know Daim on it's own. It's caramel coated in the most delicious chocolate you can imagine. It's super high in calories but who cares, right? :D

But let's get to the part where I show you some mouth watering pictures first!

EGOutfit: Denim, Dark & Black

Hi Egos! As promised I shall now show you another EGOutfit! I shopped a bit and just couldn't help myself from buying these heels and the denim shirt.

Don't we all know it in our hearts when we really want something? I'm afraid it's that time again when my heart tells me to recklessly spend as much money on clothes as I can afford... Dangerous time indeed!

But let's focus on clothes, shall we?

EGOtalk: A little Party Never Killed Nobody!

Hi Egos, it's been a crazy weekend and I wasn't able to do an EGOutfit yesterday but I will do two this week instead =)

But let's get back to today's topic! I want to share my recent parties with you! I was on corporate parties and gatherings, private parties, threw some parties and went dancing a lot! It's like these last two years I've been too calm and now my body tells me to party twice as much!

Yes this is me. My sister was feeling experimental :D

Zumba = Torture?!

Hi Egos, as you might remember I'm still working out. I always make sure to go 3 times a week to the gym. Going for 6 months makes the work out part of a routine which is good because it shows how much I've achieved a healthier lifestyle. However it also means that cardio and weights are sometimes not really tempting. Sometimes cardio seems to never end...

EGOxperiment: Milka Flavoured Ice Cream Cup!

Hi Egos, I'm back with another reason why I might never quit eating ice cream. My obsession has reached another peak with this EGOxperiment.

After tasting the Toblerone and then the Oreo flavoured ice creams I have now eaten  -or rather devoured- the Milka edition. Seriously I should get paid for this! Dear ice cream industry, If you ever need an ambassador please find attached my application. :D

But let's finally get to the pictures. Shall we?

EGOutfit: Eye of the Tiger!

Hi Egos, raise your hand if you sang that title in your head :D I really couldn't help using it for this particular outfit :D

I was out again and was having one of those bad hair, dont-even-talk-to-me days and needed a look that was a statement in itself. For me the Print says "I'm dangerous", the leather jacket says "I'm not a nice girl" and keeping it black'n'grey is telling people that I'm not in a good mood. ;-)

But let's get to the pictures first, shall we?

EGOtalk: No Need To Lie About It!

Hi Egos, my daily amount of words is probably already used up but who cares? I still have some things left to say. ;-)

Not So Gooey Chocolate Cakes - by Joy the Baker

Hi Egos, I didn't want to headline this post a fail because although it might not have turned out the way I pictured it the results were still incredibly delicious. 

But first things first! I've developed quite a passion for food photography and have been searching for things to capture in my camera. I've earned quite some negative feedback in a couple of bars and restaurants for taking photos - I totally hate that... Always kind of hurts to be told not to take photos... - which is why I had to get back to the basics.

EGOutfit: Autumn's Fairytale!

Hi Egos, autumn kind of acts like me. Hot in one moment and cold in the next :D This past week was super cold and I wore my entire scarf collection but then all of a sudden we got a sunny and warm day. What better way to enjoy such weather than to take a stroll and do an outfit post?

EGOxperiment: Ice Cream Addict Reports Back!

Hi Egos, I'm thinking about changing the title of my EGOxperiments... I feel like the food is slowly taking over this blog :D So this time I tried to add some fashion. Can you recognize the item I used?

EGOutfit: Be The Boss!

Hi Egos, fall has been getting better and better. There have been a couple of cold days but also very sunny and mild days that allowed me to breathe. I used this opportunity to sport a skirt-look that will definitely not be warm enough for winter. 

It's again a business-style look that unfortunately does not go well with my office's dress code. So once again I wish I could just put on whatever I wanted at work. I guess I just have to become my own boss and make the decisions. ;-)

EGOtorial: How To Upgrade Your Cheap Bling!

Hi Egos, we all know these moments when 4 letters make us buy almost anything. Oh yes you guessed right! The good old -or evil- sale season has inspired me again. It's the time when we start experimenting more than usual. Clotheswise it's a wonderful season but don't forget the accessories.

I use that time to buy jewelry that I'd rarely buy for it's original price because let's be honest here those affordable accessories look cool but are made of low quality materials and create those greenish lines. However today I want to share a little trick to upgrade your bling. All you need is a colourless top coat.

EGOxperiment: Autumn Ice Cream - Toblerone

Hi Egos, with the end of my successful Magnum First Kiss EGOxperiments I've been craving for something new. While I still need to find my style fashionwise I've definitely found my taste dessertwise ;-) I did some research for new EGOxperiments but I always ended up in the ice cream department. Since this blog is about loving yourself I thought I'd just give in and finally go for new editions of ice cream.

This one at least comes in a cup :D The first one is the Toblerone flavoured ice cream cup.

Update + OMG That's So Cute!

Hi Egos, my vacation is finally over. I've gone out a lot and even gone on a trip with my sister back to our hometown. This time we spent a whole day with our brother outside for some quality sibling time.

My twin sister and our brother.

Late Nights in Berlin!

Hi Egos, I'm on vacation this week! I love the extra free time to hang out with friends and do all the things that I usually have to do after work. It's a bit more relaxing although one week isn't enough for me to really calm down.

Anyways I was out in my favourite bar keeping it non-alcoholic. I got to dress up a bit, drink delicious drinks and experiment with my new camera. =)

Swaaaaaaaag :D

EGOtalk: Yes, I Do Need A Third Pair Of Black Boots!

Hi Egos, I think I had the most female moment ever today. I wanted to quickly get pizza for my sister and me when I realized that I have worn the same pair of shoes for two weeks now. I did what every woman with a full shoe closet does: Thought I didn't have anything else to put on but went to take a look anyway.

As I stood in front of my closet I noticed these three pairs of shoes:

EGOutfit: Everything That Is Trendy In One Outfit - Fall Edition!

Hi Egos, it's fall and I've finally embraced the cold weather. After struggling for quite some time my mind has accepted that colder days are inevitable (raise your hand if you're thinking of Mr. Smith from Matrix :D).

One reason why I adapted so quickly - yes taking 3 weeks to get used to having no warm days anymore is quick :D - was the fact that the sun is still around. You need to put on more clothes but feeling the warmth of the sun makes it more bearable.

EGOtorial: Healthy Berries'n'Orange Shake!

Hi Egos, I love food and drinks. I love it even more when they are good for me. So today I want to share this little shake I've recently tried that doesn't only taste good but helps protect you against illnessess and supports your digestion.

Let's take a closer look!

EGOtalk: My Style Back In The Day!

Hi Egos, lately I've been feeling old. So now I'm going to do what most old people do: Think of my past. I don't remember that many things on my own but photos are such a great way to get back your memory and the following are just too hilarious.
Please mind the quality of them. Back then there were no digital cameras. :-D
This is so adroable. Look at those tiny teeth and the smoth skin :D Totally reminds me of my little brother.

EGOutfit: Turn Your Swag on!

Hi Egos, the girl inside of me is back with another outfit. I kept it cool and confident though. This look incorporates the most important materials and colours of this season. We got grey, burgundi, black as well as leather!

Let's have the phtos do the talking. ;-)

EGOtalk: How To Be An Exciting Person!

Hi Egos! It has been a long while since I've taught you something right? Today I shall present you a tutorial that might add some spice to your current lifestyle :D Please don't mind my writing skills as there is a child  below my apartment that has been crying for days now and is giving it's grand finale this very moment - at least I hope that this will be the end... It's really annoying me... :-(

Anyways let's focus on ourselves and our EGO!

Step 1: Dress Up!

EGOutfit: Let's Embrace The Chilly Weather Stylishly!

Hi Egos, I've got a new outfit for you =) The beginning of fall makes me rather melancholic because I definitely prefer warm weather over these rainy, windy and chilly days. However this new jacket really brightened up my mood!

 That's the look! Boots that will keep me warm and elongate my legs whenever I wear a black bottom with a grey/black/white dress and my new jacket!

Cheating on SAMSUNG!

Hi Egos, my nerd heart has been on cloud 9 these last couple of days as Berlin is hosting the IFA. The IFA is a place for major and minor electronic companies to showcase their new products. It's the perfect opportunity for regular people such as me to get a glimpse of what a lot of cash could get you :D

EGOutfit: The "A Hot Mess" - Look!

Hi Egos, as you all know I've been sick for a couple of days already. The first two days are usually spent with self-pity but then I'm back in the game and plan for things I want to do as soon as I'm better.

I bought new make up, a bag that I will share later with you and printed shorts (very clever considering that summer has come to an end already... :D). As soon as I got it I had to put on some make up and the shorts. In addition to my condition I call this look "A Hot Mess". 

 The flower print trend has finally gotten to me :D

Watching Doctor Shows Will Make Me Healthy Again?!

Hi Egos, I'm ill. T_T I told you before that being sick always comes with a lot of drama for me. I tend to over exaggerate my pain and always feel the need to tell everyone how sick I am. Kind of like I'm doing now :D

My New Apartment: Suddenly It Happened So Fast - Say Hi to My Bed!

Hi Egos, remember how I said that getting my bed was kind of hard? Well a week later I can say that it all worked out. Some of you might wonder what happened in that one week. Well a classmate of my sister had time and a big enough car and offered to get it for me. Unfortunately I didn't have time to accompany him. So I gave my sister very detailed instructions and some money. When I came home from work on Friday my bed was already there waiting for me to put the piece together!

EGOxperiment: Magnum First Kiss The Grand Finale!

Hi Egos, we made it! I was able to get that last Magnum First Kiss. After checking every supermarket and 7/11 I wasn't able to find it. In the end I stumbled upon it at the cinema. They were selling it as a movie snack.

But let's get to the foodporn part first! :D

Alrighty you know the drill already :D  So this is Magnum First Kiss N° 5 Stolen Kiss in tarte aux pommes flavour.

EGOtalk: Things I want To Do NOW! - Part 1

Hi Egos, I guess it won't come as much of a surprise when I say that I'm incredibly impatient. If I don't know how and when I will get, do or make something I tend to do it immediately. Otherwise I'm afraid it will never be done.
I know that there are a LOT of people who make plans but never realize them. All talk but no action. I kind of dislike that character trait. However sometimes you can't do something because you don't have the right timing or simply not enough time.
Here's a list of things I'd like to do NOW if I had the proper ressources:

EGOutfit: The Lazy Days Are Over!

Hi Egos, I'm back with another EGOutift. Since we can all agree that summer has been awesome and going back to school or work after a nice vacation kind of sucks I wanted to say goodbye to those lazy days with the following outfit. =)

 You might remember this shirt from here. This time I paired it with a simple black mini-skirt.

EGOtorial: How to Clean Your Jewels Grandma-Style!

Hi Egos, today I want to share some knowledge with you! The more accessories you have the less you'll wear some of them. However after some time your jewels can look kind of ancient. My grandma taught me this one little trick to undo the traces of time:

Step 1: Select the items. From my exerience this works wonders on silver and gold. The real one, no fakes!

My New Apartment: Where is My Bed?!

Hi Egos, I want to update you one our new place. We've been living in here for almost a month now and a lot of progress has happened. So I'll show you what it looks like.

 There isn't much that's changed in here. Just another couch :D
