A Little Update (TemporaryPlaces)

Hej my dear friends, I have some news for you! I’ve opened my new Etsy shop yesterday. It’s called: TemporaryPlaces. Right now you can only buy two enamel mugs on there, but I’m planning some exciting new things right now. Maybe you know this, but I love enamel cups! They’re so retro and cute and it looks so so good to drink my tea out of one of them. I also use one cup for a pencil holder on my desk and one for the water I use while painting. You see – there are lots of possibilities.

Keep you eyes out for some updates within the next weeks, there are going to be some special Friends/Gilmore Girls/Sherlock/Fantastic Beasts/ACOMAF inspired goodies. And let me know, if you’d like to have custom made cups for you. I’d love to do that. I’m also thinking about doing notebooks, bookmarks, enamel pins and posters. Please, let me know what you think about it. I’d love to hear from you!

November Wrap Up

I’m in love. I fell in love this month, with the books by Rainbow Rowell. In went to Hamburg for some days and brought with me Rivers of London by Ben Aaronovitch. After reading about 100 to 200 pages, it got so boring and I couldn’t bring myself to finish it. So I went to a small bookshop just over the street from the café I was sitting in. It was a rainy and cold day and I ran  quickly get inside. Sadly they didn’t have any English books in the shop so I asked where the next bigger bookshop was. And there I found so many wonderful books and I nearly couldn’t decide which to pick… but in the end I went for Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell. I’m so happy that I did, because it was so unique and funny. It kept me good company on my 6 hour train ride. The other passengers probably wondered why this strange girl giggled all the time, but I simply couldn’t help it.

After finishing Fangirl I couldn’t wait reading Carry On, because I also fell a little bit in love with Simon & Baz and wanted to know more about them. And I wasn’t disappointed from this story either. I think I’ll have to reread Fangirl and Carry On soon. I also enjoyed Coraline by Neil Gaiman, after watching the (really really amazing) film last month. Gaiman is one of my favourite authors. Two other books of him are currently on the way to me and I’m hoping to read them in December. If you’re a fan of the BBC show Sherlock (like me) and you can’t wait to watch the new episodes in January (like me), read Moriarty. That ending is super fantastic!

Fangirl – Rainbow Rowell 5/5

Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them

After spending the grey and cold Monday evening in the cinema watching Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them I am quite obsessed. Obsessed because the film was … well FANTASTIC.

Really, I didn’t thought I would enjoy it as much as I did (hint: mating dance). Eddie Redmayne is a wonderful, wonderful Newt Scamander. Quirky and utterly magical. Oh, and the way he cares about his magical creatures. I think he’s my new favourite wizard. I can’t wait to see the next film (because there are going to be five (five!!!!!)).

We're going to recapture my creatures 
before they get hurt. 
They're currently in alien terrain 
surrounded by millions of 
the most vicious creatures 
on the planet; humans.

NEWT SCAMANDER

Till the next film, I’m going to read the Screenplay, which is beautiful by the way. But sadly I have to wait until Christmas, because I’ve bought enough books for … a looot of weeks (and there’s no money left). So, till Christmas I’m watching funny and cute Fantastic Beasts/Eddie Redmayne videos. Here are some of my favourites:

If you’re quite obsessed with Eddie right now (like me), here are some really good films with him:
The Pillars of the Earth

My Week with Marilyn

The Theory of Everything

The Danish Girl

Les Misérables

Will we die, just a little?
