I survived the Reichenbach Fall (twice!)

May 30th, 2012

Yep, I fell for Sherlock too :D I once swore to never watch anything even remotely violent or suspenseful again, just because my mind can’t take it, haha. I’m like a five year old when it comes to things like that, I get nightmares and I just hate it when people die on telly and in movies.

Last summer however, Sherlock – a modern version of Sherlock Holmes made by the BBC – was mentioned just about everywhere. I was bored, thought I’d give it a try and saw the first episode – and then I was hooked.

Now, I haven’t been to the cinema for almost five years and I’m definitely not a “tv show junkie” either, so my excitement for this probably sounds quite silly but… I can’t remember ever watching a show this brilliantly made and written. I love the idea of a modern adaption. I love how much passion and attention to detail the writers and producers put into this project. There are so many tiny clues and gimmicks; no flash of a newspaper or a quiet whisper in the background is a coincidence. I love how it actually challenges you to work everything out. And last but not least, I love how brilliantly all the actors, especially Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman as Sherlock and John, portray their characters.

The second series just finished here in Germany, but I advise you to watch it in English anyway because Benedict Cumberbatch’s voice is pure porn.

As you can see, I’m completely sherlocked =D It’s incredibly thrilling and suspenseful, but funny as well, and just overall amazingly done. Can’t – wait – for – more!

35% off at H&M part 2

May 13th, 2012

Only one month after I raided H&M with the 35% code, there’s already another one. I obviously couldn’t resist and got these two things:

 


Finally a hat (wanted to get one for three years now…) and finally something that’s neither blue nor beige =D yay!

pastel nails

I never thought I’d ever paint my nails green, haha! But I really liked this pastel green colour, and it was on sale, so…

 

Burt’s Bees Tinted Lipbalm

May 8th, 2012

Finally got hold of one of these! I never thought I’d pay over 7€ for a lip care product, but I wanted to try the Tinted Lipbalm by Burt’s Bees. Since I couldn’t find them anywhere here in Germany I ordered one on ebay (and that was even a bit cheaper). It took 12 days to arrive from the US.
The lipbalms are 100% natural and come in a cute paper packaging. I got the Rose shade, a nice red-ish colour. It brings a subtle tint to my lips, exactly what I wanted :) See the Burt’s Bees website for the other shades. Now I want the Hibiscus one too…
