~ First Ice Cream of the Year! Well, actually it's a Froyo.
~ I'm a little obsessed with the vegan chef Attila Hildmann, because I love his recipes and almost own all of his cookbooks and now he sells his own food! I really love his vegan bolognese and it's just perfect for those lazy days where you just want something quick, but also healthy!
~ The husband and I visited a Korean barbecue street food market. I love trying out new cuisine.
~ I was the vacation replacement for my colleague, who is managing our classical sales department for four weeks, so as a proper replacement I visited a classical concert. It was a Yellow Lounge concert with the wonderful Hélène Grimaud introducing her new album Water featuring Schiller. 5/5 Bazooka Points for a wonderful atmostphere and it was so cool when Hélène and Schiller switched places for a song, so Schiller was on the piano and Hélène on the synthesizer.
~ We spontaneously decided to go to another Battles show. The first time we saw them was in a tiny venue in munich and it was one of the best concerts I ever went to, so the stakes were very high. But they didn't dissapoint! 4/5 Bazooka Points, but only cause the first one was so special!
~ And then there was Dransgal! A really promising young german act with influences of New Wave, Post-Punk and Indie-Pop. 5/5 Bazooka points for this 22 year old's stellar performance at his record release show in Berlin.
~ I did a little concert hopping again and went to the Vertigo Label Night after the Drangsal record release show, where I saw the beautiful Sara Hartman. 4/5 Bazooka Points for keeping her cool when the sound system failed.
~ I won tickets for the Social Movie Night with Bad Neighbours 2! It was a really cool event even though we had to hand over our cell phones again and wait forever for the beginning, but we were compensated with a hilarious intro with Seth Rogen and Chloë Grace Moretz in person! They also invited the actor's german voice actors and Seth Rogen thought that was so awesome and also super weird, he was so freaked out! The film was alright, but the best part was the aftershow party at the House of Weekend rooftop club with free drinks (in red cups, college style) and an awsome view over Alexanderplatz. They also had this vodka fointain with a pissing statue that was triggered by using the hashtag on instagram. Too bad it was a weeknight, otherwise we would have probably drunk too much.
~ LEGO Batman at the movie theatre. Can't wait for the movie! Loved the LEGO movie!
~ It was finally nice enough outside for me to want to fix up the balcony. There's always so much junk to clean up after the winter, but I got it all done in one afternoon.
~ I fixed up these wooden boxes with a bit of coppe spray paint and stacked them on top of each other to make a little shelf next to our comfy balcony chair. Perfect for resting your wine glass while enjoying a bit of evening sun.
~ Did a little bit of colouring in the sun. I found this Harry Potter colouring book at the thrift store and I think it's from before the movies, because everyone looks exactly like in the books and Peeves is in it as well.
~ More thrift finds! I went to one of my favorite thrifting places and found this cute Hello Kitty suitcase(1€), two Polly Pockets(1€ each) and a couple of LotR Kinder surprise figurines(1€ for 4).
~ Pimped my bike! My brother got me this freaky new bike seat and it's pretty awesome. It's like riding on a cloud, no more butt aches :D
~ Winter is coming! Got a new blanket with fake fur and the first thing the husband does is pretend to be the Lord of Winterfell... how cool is the new Game of Thrones Season though? So sad about the recent loss though... stupid door...

~ I finally own all of the Hobbit movies! Didn't even buy the last one on BluRay, because I wanted to wait for the Extended Bos Set.
~ Went to another Dawanda Blogger event, this time it was all about diy weddings! I'm an expert on those! Wore my flower crown from my own wedding.
~ I was being a little sickly, so I cuddled up on the couch with a hot cinnamon/honey (oat)milk and watched Cinderella. I love that movie! Them Richard Madden legging buns <3
I got to visit my former home Munich for a business trip to the German "Schlager"-Convention where our German Pop label presents all of their hot new musicians and hits. It not really my kind of music, but the experience was really interesting in a surreal way. I spent most of the evening chatting with colleagues and artists and met some of the guys from Faun, a medival folk band, who were hilarious!
~ DJ Ötzi & Nik P. presented their new party hit "Geboren um dich zu lieben"(Born to love you)
~ Klubbb3, the German version of a pop supergroup ~ "Du schaffst das schon"(You can do it)
~ Alex Diehl, actually a pretty decent singer songwriter, I think he actually got the most attention of all the acts, because he was just so refreshingly authentic.
~ Got to spend the next day wandering around Munich before my flight home and found this really cool thrift store called Vinty's, that I'm going to add to my list of my favorite thrift stores in Munich. They have a lot of high quality vintage clothing, a bit more pricy than the regular store, but very well selected items.
~ A view inside the thrift store, so many pretty and colourful "Dirndl", traditional bavarian dresses.
~ I also visited the Item Shop for the first time ever. They have so much cool stuff, including this "lifesize" Tardis and Doctor.
~ I really liked their shop window decoration. They had a few of these "modern fossils" by Heartless Machine.
~ The entire shop was filled with wonderfully nerdy and geeky stuff and the interior design definitely is a big part of that. The decoration and items was beautifully set up and if I had more space in my carry one luggage I would definitely have been tempted to buy something!
~ So much colourful candy at the Comic Con in Leipzig!
~ I was pretty sick when we went to Leipzig, but we had already booked the train and hotel and paid for the tickets and I still wanted to go. We even booked a fancy hotel for the occasion and I was a bit sad that I couldn't enjoy the spa area.
~ Look at all that fancyness! We usually travel very low budget, but this time we wanted to treat ourselves, because we're probably not having a big vacation this year.
~ Thank Goodness the Comic Con had a "tea house" with free green tea. I spent most of our second con day there in hopes to cure my cold... too bad I couldn't really enjoy myself too much there.
~ The dearest Claudi from Pixeltrash3000 visited us in Berlin again, this time with her new beau Maxi from The Final Stage Show. We were going to have a Hobbit marathon, but we didn't even really make it through the first movie...
~ We also went to this really cute candy shop together that had sweets from all around the world. So much yummyness!
~ Oh yeah, easter happened as well. I did a bit of window decoration, but it's not my favorite holiday, I just like bunnies.
