All eyes on me!

During the worst days of my flu I felt like my eyes would be boiling in my head.




Everything but looking straight ahead was quite painful.


So, I figured, I may as well use all my eye-style Trollbeads to comfort myself!


Enjoy & keep healthy!



Antibiotics & Probiotics

Since January 4, (2017, not 2016 – ha! ha!), I’m on sick leave due to a really bad cold (Or would flu be more appropriate here? Whatever.).

Why would I bother to post a pic of my meds?

I have three good reasons to do so:

I. The packaging was my inspiration for a Trollbeads combo:

The glass beads just match the packaging of the antibiotics and probiotics, while the silvers all relate to the flu, or what I did while being ill.

The retired H, of course, stands for “healing”, or well, it may also be the relieved “Hallelujah” from below (3.) … 

II. To express my gratitude for living in a country with a) a functioning Health Care System, where you don’t have to buy necessary meds on the black market or call relatives abroad to send you some (or the funds to buy your meds); & b) a continued remuneration in case of sick leave. Last but not least:

III. I’m grateful that the cold finally broke out and is now, after antibiotics, tons of chicken soup (with & without noodles) and a lot of sleep, about to be healed! Why? I already had a sore throat and permanent headache since before Christmas, so it was just about time to finally get worse (or disappear). Hallelujah!

I love the shadow in the above pic! Doesn’t it look like the contour of a pensive lion face? 🙂 Yeah, I know, this is just how our brain works, it tries to find familiar shapes & patterns everywhere.

Keep healthy everyone! You know what they say: An apple a day, keeps the doctor away! But if the doctor is cute, forget the fruit!!! 😉



Jumbo OOAK – couldn’t be more beautiful!

Hello, fellow Trollie!

My favorite glass Trollbeads are the White Bubbles & the Red Stripes.

And then, **gasp!** last September I found this breathtaking Jumbo OOAK at (God bless them!!! THE most amazing customer service – EVER!).



The hearts have my perfect red and the whole bead is the ideal combination between white bubbles & red stripes. Love! It!





I don’t like to take out the trash, and usually forget to do so, however, when it comes to the Trash you see above, I just can’t get enough! My favorites are: Poison, Spark in the Dark & Hell is Living Without You.

But this is just a non-representative peek into my taste in music. You have to know, music is my biggest passion, even before languages, Trollbeads (and jewellery in general), photography and anything else.

To cut a very long story short: I love almost everything, may it be Alice Cooper, Deva Premal, Amr Djab, Kimbra, Anoushka Shankar, Buddha Bar, Alicia Keyes, The Hooters, Misty Edwards, Lord Kitchener & The Mighty Sparrow, Gotye, George Michael, Ed Sheeran, Nina Simone, Taio Cruz, Bill Withers, David Guetta, David Bisbal, The Boss, Depeche Mode, Sting, LeAnn Rimes, Snatam Kaur, David Guetta, Julio Iglesias, David Bisbal, Gloria Estefan, Marc Anthony, Deep Forest, Luis Vargas, Khaled, Sarah Brightman, Elvis Martinez, Adriano Celentano, The Beach Boys, The Smiths, Helmut Lotti, Enigma, Jeff Buckley, Celine Dion, Anugama, Luniz, Maria Callas, the Beatles, you name it …

Don’t get me wrong, this is no name throwing here. I really love!love!love! music. Right now, while I write this, I’m listening to Killer (George Michael), before that, it was Poison. And after Killer I will listen to Plain gold ring” (Live at Sing Sing Studios), by Kimbra. Love it!

Do you love music, too? Maybe it’s time to listen to some “old”, long forgotten favorites?

In my case that would be I got 5 on it, Luniz. **sigh** Oh yes! And My name is not Susan, (!’70’s Flange Mix!), Whitney Houston.

Enjoy, whatever you are voluntarily listening to!

If you feel like it, hit the comment & just write me your 3 (or 10, do as you please!) most cherished songs right now.



P.S. Righ now listening to Everything counts, Depeche Mode. LOVE! IT! Next will be All you Zombies, The Hooters … **sigh**

P.P.S. Now it is the NCIS Theme Song, the 1 hour version. A!MA!ZING!!!

Lucky me!

You wonder why I’d think I’m one lucky gal when it comes to this lovely plant?

a) The escalator was empty, hence, I could take the lovely snapshot (above).


b) I’m still so open to the wonders of this world and life in general, that I can see how beautiful this fugitive moment was. I love this plant a lot, it sometimes reminds me of a day-trip to the Botanical Garden in Tafira, Gran Canaria, Spain, where this specific plant grows up to six-foot high.

Take care!
