Meeting Cassandra Clare and Holly Black

So buy pure coincidence I recently found out that my FAVOURITE AUTHOR (that's still alive) came to Cologne last week!

I DIDN'T KNOW! WHAT KINDA FAN AM I?!

I bought City of Bones when I was 13 and have since bought every book she wrote, the only one's still missing being the Shadowhunter Codex and the Bane Chronicles since both are fairly new and I'm fairly broke, BUT, those books have been through SO MUCH with me, they were always there and I spent so many hours reading them and reading them again, I just HAD TO GO.

So, I went straight to Cologne after University - which meant I was about 4 hours early.
Therefore I took my time to have lunch and look around the Dom of Cologne, before I finally went on to the Mayersche Bookstore where the Signing session would be.

When I arrived, still 3 hours early, there was no one. obviously. So since I was still considering buying magisterium I went upstairs to look at all the book, take a look at the english books section as well and spent some time deciding what to buy (I only had enough money for one book, after all, I'm broke^^

When I finally decided (I did buy magisterium in the end) I went back downstairs to the signing booth, where a lone fan already waited.
(I later found out her name was Lara and she's pretty cool!)
And in about an hour or even less looooads of other fans started gathering around!
Everyone was very nice and sweet and EVERYONE was a fandom person, so we talked about TMI and TID and the other books ofc but also about Doctor Who and Sherlock and SPN and Harry Potter and it was AWESOME.

AND FINALLY
CASSIE AND HOLLY
ARRIVED.
/SCREAMS/





Cassie kept standing at the desk while Holly went around asking for questions!
Whereever Holly went you just heard people laughing and squealing all the time :'D







So they answered some questions, like, about Magisterium obvs and who's their fave character, but Cassie also answered loads about TMI & TID like about Jem and about why Church is Immortal (he is NOT the lost herondale! ;D) and about Magnus and Alec and their future which made everyone squeal and cackle and it was honestly really great!


I got City of Bones right when it came out in germany and that was like... 2007? So I just had to get this one signed ♥ It means so  much to me, Cassies books have kinda always been there! For 7 years! ♥
When it was my turn to get my signature I told Cassie about that and she was like "oh that's great! Happy you're still reading them" /fangirls A LOT/ it was wonderful°o°

I also got my copy of Magisterium signed! :3
Just don't really have a photo of it atm :D

I also met really really great people there, fans of Cassie and Holly, who are also in many other fandoms and we kept talking about Sherlock and SPN and Harry Potter and such and it was really great. I had a great time!


Thank you so much, Cassie and Holly ♥

Aerial Ladder

I'm not gonna give any big explanation as it was inofficial and I'm not supposed to talk too much, but here you go.










I'm also really sorry those pictures are so shaky, but the thing shakes. a lot. So I couldn't quite keep my hands as calm as needed. 
Thing is 30m high if anyone was wondering ;)

Photokina 2014

So~ I'm catching up with everything that happened! Slowly, but I am!
So in September the Photokina took place! The photokina is a huge convention about photography in Cologne every 2 years, and as you may know I've been there 2 years ago and decided to go again this year, since photography is still my biggest passion and I love it a lot ♥

SO, I'll just leave some pictures here~

University~♥

Yaaaay I recently started studying!


/APPLAUSE/

Ok so I started studying Modern East Asian studies in October, which means I am officially learning japanese now!
I really have to say I love it! I'm soing something that I absolutely love, which is learning a language, and that with a teacher! ;D
Also all my classmates are really so nice and I am so happy that I chose to do this!
I already have good friends (I guess) - after only a month!
What happened!
That's so unusual!
I don't even have friends! :D

Anyways, I'm sure it's gonna be hard and exhausting and full of mental break downs and panic attacks and confusion and all~ But I'm very happy nontheless ♥

Pinky Paradise Review

Hello there~ 

I finally got to order my first ever circle lenses yaaaaay ♥

Even though I'm not sponsored or anything I'd like to review them!
I got the Geo Nudy Pink and I LOVE THEM~


I ordered them in the beginning of November, mostly because of the offer of free shipping worldwide due to Halloween. Since shipping is always a bit pricy, I'm always happy to not pay it, so it was the perfect opportunity.

Unfortunately my order had been forgotten for almost a month. Since the site itself said that shipping can take 14-25 days I wasn't too worried, but after the 25 days passed I finally wrote an email asking what happened.
The customer service was great, I was told that they were very sorry and that I would recieve my lenses with express mail (for free!) because of this, so they finally arrived very quickly, which I was very happy about.
Unfortunately, the free Lens case that's supposed to come with each pair of lenses and the free gift I was supposed to get due to entering a code (Irodohieru, if anyone is wondering) did not come with the package.
I then sent a mail to them asking if I could still get these items. Obviously I was told that that's not possible (which only makes sense, since these were free gifts and shipping is after all expensive for them as well). I was told, though, that I would get the free lens case with my next order.
Even though the customer service was amazing and the lenses are great, I am wondering what even went wrong that I just didn't get everything in one go after I ordered. Also, a pair of circle lenses without lens case is pretty useless, and god knows when I'll order again.
 Due to this experience I likely won't order at PinkyParadise again. Still I got to say that I am sure that mistakes like that don't usually happen, and I've read a lot of very positive reviews as well, so don't be too discouraged to buy there~ :) 

A very good thing about most lenses is that they have a EU certificate (which is the most important one for me since I know how strict EU rules are, I guess. They have several other certificates as well!)
And the Brand Geo has an "Anti-Fake-Check" 
Which is awesome!

I'm really sorry it's so blurry, the light in my room wasn't really good when I took the picture^^;;

Lens vs. normal eye

Both lenses in artificial light

And in natural light~




Comfort ♡ 9/10
Design ♡ 10/10
Size ♡ 10/10
 
Overall 9.5/10

LM.C Fanmeet 2014♥

It's been a while but I still wanted to make a post about our LM.C Fanmeet in August! ♥

So unfortunately, many people we wished would come couldn't come after all.
That was mostly because it was too sponaneous because we wanted to do this before Beki and Maya flew to Japan~ unfortunately Maya couldn't come either >.<
So we definately have to make another one when both of them are back ♥

So instead of many fancy words I'll just post a few pictures here!







Also I am very emotional at the moment and I just wanna say I miss LM.C sooo much

And
I love you guys ; ; ♥
