DIY: Pen Holder || Room Decor

Pen holder

After I made my Photo Cord I had a lot of clothespins left and so I searched for a DIY. On Facebook I found a picture and I was impressed. It was simple and beautiful. Originally it was a lamp but I needed a pen holder.

You need:

  • clothespins
  • a hot glue gun

Pen holder #1

You start with organising your clothespins. Place them like you want them to be. I changed the order every second round as you can see in the picture.

Pen holder #2

When you're happy you can start gluing everything together. Take care and don't get burned!
I made the side separate and at the end I glued them together.

Healthy Summer Salad


I love when my mum is preparing a healthy salad. She prepares different ingredients and at the end everybody can make his own personally salad by mixing them together. I'm a big fan of salad and perhaps it's an inspiration for you.

Ich liebe es wenn meine Mutter einen gesunden Salat macht. Sie bereitet verschiedene Beilagen her und am Ende kann dann jeder seinen eignen persöhnlichen Salad machen. Ich bin ein großer Fan von Salat und vielleicht inspiriert euch dieser Post es auch mal auszuprobieren.

Learn More about ME [20 Facts]

I think it's time to tell you some facts about me. I'm just a normal girl but maybe you think some facts are extraordinarily. So let's start!

1. My mother language is German also if I live in Italy. I'm South Tyrolean, which means I live in the northern part of the peninsula. I also speak Italian and English.

2. I can't live without music. If I can't listen to music before school, I'm angry the whole day. I also write most of my blog posts while listening to music. And I have this habit that I play a song over and over again until I don't like it anymore.

3. My biggest hobby is skiing. I started when I was 3 years old and I think I won't stop until I'm too old to go skiing. I go skiing nearly every weekend and it means everything to me.

4. I'm a perfectionist. Everything I do has to be perfect. That's why I need a lot of time to varnish my nails. They have to look perfect or I get angry.

5. I love watching YouTube videos. I'm a big fan of British youtubers but I also like watching Americans or Germans.

6. I like reading books but I only start reading when I have holiday or a lot of time.

7. I'm still going to school. I'm quite good also if I don't study a lot. Somehow it's easy for me to study and I don't need a long time for studying.

8. I'm obsessed with the Internet. I'm a victim of our generation. I spent a long time on Twitter, Instagram and Youtube.

9. My second biggest hobby is photography. Since I bought my camera I can't stop making pictures. Just give me a camera and you won't get it back!

10. I'm quite obsessed with sport, which also means that I like watching it on TV. I like watching skiing and Formula 1. But in general I watch everything.

11. I have long hair and sometimes I would love to chop off my hair but I think it won't look good.

12. Roses are my favourite flowers.

13. I can't choose a favourite TV series. I like Glee, Gossip Girl, 90210, The Mentalist and many more. How can you choose? They're all amazing.

14. I have wanderlust sometimes. We aren't a family that travels a lot and I just want to explore different countries, meet new people and get to know other cultures.

15. My biggest inspiration is Lindsey Vonn. She's a ski racer and I'm a big fan. She never gives up and she's such a strong women.

16. I'm a big boyband fan. I love One Direction (I'm quite a big Directioner), 5 Seconds of Summer, and more.

17. My birthday is on 6th June and I'm Gemini.

18. Blue is my favourite colour. In Summer I really like bright colours and in Winter darker ones.

19. After I was born I had black hair. Then I lost it and became blond. Now my hair is light brown.

20. I don't smoke and I don't like the smell of it.

My Favourite SUMMER Nail Polishes

My favourite Nail Polishes for Summer

I really love nail polishes and particularly the ones from KIKO. They are cheap and you can get nearly every colour. The texture is really good and it's really simple to apply them. If you look at the packaging they are really similar to the Essie ones and I also think that you can use them as dupes. All of the KIKO nail polishes cost 2.50 € and less.

{Review} Ed Sheeran - x (The New Album)

via mtv

Ed Sheeran published his new album on 23 June and since then I can't stop listening to it.
He already uploaded some songs on his Youtube Channel and I had already heard his single Sing, about which I wrote a blog post.
I was really stoked and couldn't wait until the album was out. I'm a big fan and I think he is a really talented artist. Ed Sheeran is writing his own songs, he is playing them on his guitar and his voice is perfect. All his songs have a message and they are catchy and stay in our head.

 

Tracklist

“One”
“I’m a Mess”
“Sing”
“Don’t”
“Nina”
“Photograph”
“Bloodstream”
“Tenerife Sea”
“Runaway”
“The Man”
“Thinking Out Loud”
“Afire Love”
“Take It Back” (Bonus track)
“Shirtsleeves” (Bonus track)
“Even My Dad Does Sometimes” (Bonus track)
“I See Fire” (Bonus track)


via billboard

Choosing a favourite songs is really difficult.
Afire Love gets me every time. The last part is so beautiful.
And my father and all of my family
Rise from the seats to sing hallelujah

In Take It Back he is rapping and singing about his life. Ed shows that he isn't only a singer, no he can also rap.
I'm not a rapper; I'm a singer with a flow
I've got a habit of spitting
quicker lyrics you know

Thinking Out Loud is a slow song, where he's singing about his love. He will love her until they are 70.
Take me into your loving arms
Kiss me under the light of a thousand stars
Place your head on my beating heart
I'm thinking out loud
Maybe we found love right where we are

About Photograph. I love that you can hear the guitar so well. I personally prefer acoustic versions of songs.
You can fit me,
Inside the necklace you bought when you were sixteen.
Next to your heartbeat where I should be,
Keep it deep within your soul.

People still puzzle over Don't. There are rumours that it's about Ed and Ellie Goulding, who hooked up with Niall Horan and now he is heartbroken. Nobody really knows if it's true. I still love the song and for me it doesn't really matter.
She was crying on my shoulder
I already told you
Trust and respect is what we do this for
I never intended to be next
But you didn't need to to take him to bed, that's all
And I never saw him as a threat
Until you disappeared with him to have sex of course
Its not like we were both on tour
We were staying on the same fucking hotel floor

Nina is an other song I really like. It starts with a piano solo and then Ed starts playing his guitar.
You should go Nina
'Cause I ain't never coming home
In a road, won't you leave me now
And I've been living on the road Nina

As you can see that I like a lot of songs. This aren't all I love, there are much more.
