Christmas Countdown: Nice on the outside

Im Gegensatz zum Großteil der Bevölkerung liebe ich es Geschenke zu verpacken. Schon das Aussuchen des Papiers und die vielen Schleifen und Bänder und was man noch so alles auf einem Paket befestigen kann finde ich großartig.

Probably most people hate wrapping in christmas presents. I love it. There are so many possibilities making a present something special even before you opened it.

Christmas Countdown: Christmas Bakery

Ich liebe Weihnachten. Vor allem die Adventszeit mit den ganzen Vorbereitungen, dem Dekorieren, dem Geschenke einpacken und natürlich dem Backen und Verzieren der Weihnachtskekse.

I love christmas. It's my favourite time of the year and I'm obsessed with all of the cheesy red and green christmas stuff. Usually I don't enjoy cooking and baking but decorating the cookies and cupcakes with colourful sugarpearls brings back childhood memories and wakes up my inner child.

Baby, it's cold outside

I love snow!
snow means winter has finally arrived
snow means my birthday soon will be here
snow means christmas isn't far away
and snow means finally all mosquitos are dead!

Going solo

While the big brother, Mando Diao singer Gustaf Norén, is gathering huge success with the recently aired MTV Unplugged show "Above and Beyond", Carl and Viktor Norén take a break from their band Sugarplum Fairy and are trying to hit the big time as solo artists. While Viktor exchanged the Sugarplum Fairy retropop sound for some electronic clubmusic, Carl reminds much more on the former days and surrounds himself with a mystic singer/songwriter aura. In fall he did some small gigs in Sweden and supported Johnossi during their Germany tour. Although both brothers are concentrating on their own projects at the moment, they will continue playing in a band together and plans for a 4th album are already made. Carl's debut album "Owls" will be released at the beginning of 2011 and the first single is going to be "The Anger".

Hej! Sweden it's me again

Due to the European Championships in TeamGym I spent the last week in Sweden. To be a little more precise in Malmö! As always this beautiful country up in the north didn't disappointed me in any way. Nice people, beautiful landscape and a great organisation of the whole event. Unfortunately I spent nearly my entire time at the gym hall and wasn't able to see much of the city. But the impressive performances of the other teams, especially the ones from scandinavia, worth every minute I sat on those very uncomfortable chairs in this hot building. Here some impressions of my beloved Sweden.

Mission London completed

Austria has me (and my suitcase) back. What a relief! Unfortunately the London trip was a very short pleasure, filled with lots of program and reminded me of going there again for a little longer. Here are a few pictures I took while we did some sightseeing on Sunday morning.

Ich und mein Koffer sind wieder wohlbehalten in Österreich gelandet. Leider war der London Trip für meine Verhältnisse viel zu kurz und schreit lauthals nach einer Wiederholung.
