Hello new products!

Hello my dear friends, I almost forgot to tell you about my newest products (And I’m sorry that you only see so little of me here). I placed an order about two weeks ago at this online shop, who prints your stuff. It’s called Awesomemerchandise. And today all the things arrived in the mail and I uploaded them all to my etsy shop (click the link in the sidebar). I got some sheets with temporary tattoos and some buttons (small and medium ones). Enjoy some photos of my new things:

December Wrap Up

It is the last day of the year my friends! I don’t really celebrate this occasion but I love to think of what I want to do within the next 365 days. What are your plans, your wishes? 2016 was the year I first had a reading challenge ahead of me – 100 books in one year – and I did great. I read a total amount of 152 books, more than I ever read before in such a time span. Though I have to admit that I’m not going to that next year. It was a lot of stress and I always felt I had to read books and books and more books. Next year I want to really enjoy reading again, slow reading, to feast on one book for a long time etc. This month I enjoyed reading The Snow Child, This Modern Love, the Fantastic Beasts Screenplay and The Alchemist. And I found one of my favourite books this year: The Secret History. Donna Tartt’s writing style is so compelling and wonderful! I also enjoyed that the book was so different from the books I normally read, it was no fantasy or YA story. It was dark and beautiful.
