Photography: Copenhagen

In April, I finally got the chance to visit the beautiful city of Copenhagen. I have a friend living there and it was great to see her again and to explore a place I’ve never been before. Of course, I always have a camera with me, so I want to share some pictures with you. I’ve already written a post with things to do in Copenhagen and trust me, there is plenty. Now, I just want to show you the beauty of it. Let me know if there is anything you want to know or if you’ve been there yourself. I always like to exchange experiences with others. I had a great visit, the people everywhere were really nice and you will have zero problems getting around, if you know english. And as a German, I actually understood more Danish than expected. It is definitely a city worth visiting and I hope these pictures will give you a small glimpse of it.

Goodbye June 2017

Goodbye June,

and hello July. I can’t believe half a year is already over. Isn’t that crazy? That also means I’ve had my job for six months and I’m not sure if I wanna say “wow, already 6 months” or “wow, only six months”. Most of the time, I’m so exhausted, I feel like I’ve been working forever. Can’t wait for my summer vacation, starting July 26th. It’s only two weeks but they are much needed. And just looking at my stack of articles I wrote in six months, I know I’ve been working a lot. But it’s just the only thing I want to do. It also led me to meeting the winners of Germany’s Next Topmodel, who I was writing about for four months, and that was pretty cool. So yeah, it has its perks but I still need a break.

The weather has been great for the most part which is kinda annoying when you have to work. But for things like open air concerts  or ice cream dates there is nothing better. Me and some friends went to a 90s open air party and it was super fun. Best music ever! It’s also good for when you have a dog over. Grandma’s cutie stayed with us for a few days and we are just great pals. I loved having him around, going for walks, taking him to work with me and I was so sad when he had to go back home. I honestly thought about getting a dog, as so many times before, but it just wouldn’t make sense. It’s a huge responsibility, my family can’t really help me with it and I don’t know where my life will head in the next few years, so I can’t make myself dependent on a dog. I need to find one to occasionally borrow.

I spent a weekend with my bff and it was lovely, as usual. We just chilled, watched movies and ate lots of junk food food. Exactly my kind of weekend. Me and some friends threw one of our girls a surprise baby shower and I loved seeing her so happy. The baby is due in three weeks and I’m very excited to meet the little girl. There were also some extra holidays, so an occasional chill day was a must. I managed to visit my grandparents, watched a lot of movies and TV shows and made great memories with my friends. So overall, I would say it was a pretty good month and I hope that summer has more fun in store for me.

Let your skin be kissed by the sun, dance through the rain, spread a little kindness everyday, eat ice cream and enjoy it, instead of counting calories, pick your favorite songs for the summer and listen to them non-stop, flirt, cruise around with your windows down, eat lots of watermelon, let the little things in life make you happy, walk around barefoot, take lots of selfies and just have a great summer.

Tons of love,
Hailey

How You Make Me Lose Interest In A Guy

Being single can be hard. Dating can be hard. Just finding one guy to have a decent conversation with seems like rocket science to me. I’ve been out of the dating game for many years because I chose to be. Sure, it can be fun but to me, it’s so much work and more often than not a total waste of time. Where I live, I don’t really meet any guys who want the same in life as I do and at this point, I’m definitely not ready to make any compromises. So yeah, it’s complicated.

Occasionally, I meet someone, probably more likely on Tinder than in real life, and maybe I decide to give someone an actual chance. I’ve heard friends and family tell me that my expectations are way too high, that I’m superficial, I’m super complicated and so on. Honestly, I don’t agree. Sure, when I swipe through Tinder, I want to like the face but no, it’s not on top of the list. Attraction doesn’t just have something to do with how a person looks. And believe me, I haven’t dated one David Beckham after another. I WISH!

So sometimes, I think a guy is good-looking and sounds interesting at first. He may not be perfect, not my type whatever but well, I have my moments when I actually give someone a chance. I met a guy on Tinder (you may remember from THIS post) and for once, I wasn’t bored after 10 minutes. So I thought I’d give him a chance and not rule him out at the first mistake he makes. It was also a more complicated situation because we couldn’t meet in person, since he’s not in the country until October. So plenty of time to get to know each other, beforehand. Throughout the texting, more and more things happened that made me roll my eyes and I kept thinking “give him a chance, it’s different over text than in person” but I do think that the way someone writes does tell you a bit about how he is. And man, there are just so many things that you should just not do if you want a chance with me.

emoji

01. When he doesn’t have anything interesting to say about himself
Sometimes, it starts out ok. I mean, if I don’t give up after 10 minutes there must be something interesting there. You definitely get me with travelling. I feel like people who have stepped out of their familiar surroundings to explore the world are more interesting. They’ve seen new places, met new people and are much more open-minded than others. All of these aspects I value. But there is only so much you can say about your travels. Unless you travel 365 days a year you gotta come up with more to talk about. Hobbies, TV-shows, books, your job – anything that tells me more about you. One topic isn’t enough.

02. When he doesn’t ask interesting questions
I want to feel like someone really wants to get to know me. If I repeatedly tell you to ask me whatever you want and you can’t really come up with a simple question like “What is your favorite color?” do you even want to get to know me? And it doesn’t count if you ask “And you?” after giving me a not very satisfying answer to one of my questions.

03. When he asks stupid questions
Trust me, stupid questions exist, or at least stupid moments to ask them. The thing is, I don’t really have anything to hide so you can basically ask me what you want, but when we talk about relationships and the only thing you can come up with is “When was the last time you has sex?” after me telling you it’s been a few years since I’ve been involved with someone, it’s just weird. Seriously, what the hell does it matter if it was three days or three years ago?! But I guess a guys’ brain just works differently.

04. When he obviously knows nothing about irony or sarcasm
You cannot be with me if you don’t get a simple joke, a tease, anything. It’s difficult enough to have friends that you have to explain everything to but my boyfriend? No thank you. I can’t deal with it. This may sound mean but there is some truth in the saying that irony is the humor of intelligent people. Sorry not sorry.

05. When his spelling is absolutely terrible
I know that people often text differently than they talk or write but some things are just not acceptable. I’m a journalist so basic grammar and spelling skills is something I need a man to have. Afer a while it gets obvious if someone is just lazy, has problems hitting the right keys or simply doesn’t know how to spell. The word statue is NOT that difficult. And if you’re planning on travelling to Hawaii, at least learn how to spell it.

06. When he doesn’t have the balls to admit to people that we met on Tinder
It’s the 21st century so it’s not a crime to use apps to meet people. If you can’t tell people that we’ve met on Tinder grow some balls. And also don’t give me the typical “I already deleted Tinder. I hardly used it anyway. I’m not like that.” If you downloaded the app and swiped your way through, ending up finding me, you used the app and it’s ok. I don’t care if you just wanna hook up or find true love. It’s not illegal to have a profile. So chill.

07. When he only gives you short answers
I want to get to know you so tell me something about you. I know that many guys are not huge fans of texting but if it’s the only way to communicate, make an effort. But maybe it’s just because he doesn’t have more to say.

08. When he’s just being weird
When you text him something like “I hate you a bit for not having to work tomorrow” *insert wink emoji* and he just replies with “I can gladly live with that” and just leaves it at that for like 2 days, it’s weird. I mean, are you for real? I’m definitely getting you the book “Flirting for dummies” as a Christmas present.

09. When he tells you he doesn’t read
True story: I get a travel pic from inside some building I couldn’t recognize. Turns out it’s a popular library. DUDE, I don’t care about the freaking windows, I wanna see beautiful shelves full of books, people reading etc. And then when I ask about books you tell me that you may have read one or two of the Harry Potter books and that’s it? Cause you can’t do it all? I’ve once dated someone who never read a book in his life and I swore to myself that I would never do that again.

10. When he thinks it’s enough to send a bunch of pictures
Again, travelling only covers it for so long. Oh great, pic #52 from somewhere. It’s just not enough. Send me a picture and tell me a story, otherwise I don’t care anymore after the first five pictures.

Goodbye May 2017

Goodbye May,

and hello official summer aka June. I actually feel ridiculous for writing this post because I’ve been such a terrible blogger and this is obviously just an easy post to write. Last month, aside from the monthly round-up, I managed to write one actual post. ONE. There was so much going on and I was super busy or stressed out most of the time. And since I write so much for work, I kinda lose my motivation to do it in my spare time. I really miss it though. It’s not like I don’t have any ideas, I’m just always busy and tired. And if I do have a day with nothing important to do, I just hang around doing nothing. It has got to change. I miss blogging, I miss Twitter, I miss reading other blogs, sharing some blog-love… I uploaded like 5 pics to Instagram in a whole month. I’m surprised that I still have followers. I definitely need to figure out a plan to get back on track.

So what happened in May? One of my absolute favorite people in the world got married and I was maid of honor for the first time ever. It still makes me incredibly happy. It was a lovely day but I just had a ton of things to organize, especially for the bachelorette party I threw her. We had a super fun 90s party and I don’t know when was the last time I laughed so hard. I mean, I literally gave it my all. Blew up condoms over my head, gave her a lap dance and drank A LOT. It was hilarious and even though the whole planning was super stressful  (because GIRLS), it was worth seeing everyone have a good time. The wedding was super nice as well and I actually got all dressed up for it. I think some people were actually surprised not seeing me in black leggings and my hair in a bun for once.

I got a new car because in the middle of chaos, cars love to give up on me, so I had to find a new one. I guess you need to say a new old one cause I definitely cannot afford a brand new car. Gladly, my dad helped a lot with it and we managed to find one I really like. Despite the fact that between paying and picking it up someone scratched the door, I like it a lot. That door annoys the hell out of me though but I’ll take care of it later.

This all may not sound like there was a lot going on but trust me, there was. I mean, you still have to do things like clean, or you go out to dinner with friends, catch up on your TV-shows and sometimes, I work for 10 hours and then there is just no time or energy left. But right now, I’m enjoying the third day off in a row and I have two more to go. Little breaks like this help a lot to power up and I hope I get some blog stuff done. Five posts a month would be a good start. I should just post the stories I write for work but their all in German and not really what I blog about. I just have to work on my organization.

I hope everyone has a lovely summer. We’ve definitely already had incredibly hot days and I ate ice cream, wore sandals, got a light sunburn and I love it. Except for one weekend, June is already packed with fun and I hope that it goes on like this. As much as I love chilling and as often as I just feel completely exhausted, having fun with friends is priceless and I’m glad that I’m not too depressed to leave the house anymore, like I’ve been last year, many times. I just love complaining about adulting but it’s all #firstworldproblems so all is good.

Enjoy your life as much as you can, even when the world we’re living in makes it harder, each day. Take care of yourselves, tell others that you love them and stay safe.

Tons of love,
Hailey

Eurovision Song Contest 2017

Eurovision Song Contest

© Eurovision

Yesterday, it was that time of year again: The Eurovision Song Contest finale happened and brought to the stage Europe’s cheesiest acts. Music has always been super important to me and even though I end up rolling my eyes pretty much all the time, I just have to watch it, take notes and give out points. I must say that this year was a total snoozefest. Nothing really blew my mind and I was definitely missing the often mentioned diversity. However, I didn’t know any of the songs beforehand so I wasn’t biased at all. I’m also not one of these people who just support their own country because honestly, if it’s not good, it’s not good, and I’m all about the music.

Unfortunately, I really didn’t think there was much good on this year’s stage. I didn’t give 12 points to anyone on my spreadsheet but for once, my favorite act did win. I know that a lot of people were disappointed that Portugal won because it wasn’t a typical ESC performance. For me the music matters much more than a show and I think it was well deserved. I also loved Australia and the Netherlands because those three acts were the only ones that gave me goosebumps and were all talent and less show. But everyone has a different taste in music and it shouldn’t be anything to fight over.

So here is my opinion on each contestant. I love music and I’m always super critical so don’t hate me if I didn’t like your favorite. We just all listen to different music and I’d love to know who was your favorite.

01. Israel: Imri Ziv – I Feel Alive
He looked like a typical guy you run into at he gym – another reason not to go. Since I was a huge fan of Israel last year, I could only end up being disappointed. He managed to hit the high notes pretty well but I just felt absolutely nothing. And his pants looked weird.

02. Poland: Kasia Moś – Flashlight
I will never be a fan of these dresses that make your boobs scream for help cause they’re suffocating. The song wasn’t really good, all she did was press out the notes and she didn’t really show feelings or emotions.

03. Belarus: Naviband – Story Of My Life
I thought they looked really amazing in their folk outfits and the female singer was so incredibly beautiful. It definitely wasn’t my kind of music but I liked that they sang in their own language. I wasn’t feeling that smooch at the end of the song though.

04. Austria: Nathan Trent – Running On Air
I’m usually a fan of the quieter acts but the show was so incredibly cheesy. I wasn’t feeling  the guy at all but the song was kinda cute. From his performance, I guess he watched too much of the Dreamworks opening credits.

05. Armenia: Artsvik – Fly With Me
I really liked the oriental parts of the song but I really didn’t feel any emotions and her voice just wasn’t my thing. Also, the outfits were completely underwhelming and they really should’ve put together a better dance performance, as well.

06. Netherlands: O’G3NE – Lights And Shadows
Finally an act that gave me goosebumps. Beautiful women with amazing voices sang great harmonies. There were real feelings and emotions on that stage and the fact that they ended the show with tears in their eyes show that it came from deed inside.

07. Moldowa: SunStroke Project – Hey Mamma!
Yeah, it was kinda cool and somehow reminded me of Men In Black. It was fun, had a good beat, the running man is always a good idea but I wasn’t really convinced that they actually played the saxophone and violin. And halfway through the song, I was a bit over the whole “Hey Mamma ” part.

08. Hungary: Joci Pápai – Origo
It was definitely a more unique performance than most others and even though I couldn’t understand a word, I actually felt it. I thought it was a really good mix of everything: good female dancer, great outfits, cool rap, and he definitely knew how to convey emotions.

09. Italy: Francesco Gabbani – Occidentali’s Karma
I can’t believe that he’s actually super popular and lots of people loved him. I didn’t like his voice at all and his performance looked like a school show in 4th grade. Was that supposed to be dancing? And don’t even get me started on the gorilla.

10. Denmark: Anja Nissen  – Where I Am
A beautiful woman with a great voice and a good song but nothing that made me freak out. I really didn’t think it was special enough and just some typical ESC-pop.

11. Portugal: Salvador Sobral – Amor Pelos Dois
When the song started, I thought it was a song from a Disney movie and it gave me goosebumps cause it was so beautiful. A good voice, a unique way of singing and it went so good with the piano and violin. There were so many emotions on that stage. It was pure, intimate, quiet and so nontypical for ESC – probably why I liked it the most. It sounded like a beautiful lullaby and I didn’t have to understand a word to feel them.

12. Azerbaijan: Dihaj – Skeletons
I loved the song title but the song not so much. The performance was great – very unique and artsy but all the drama was just so much more than the song itself.

13. Croatia: Jacques Houdek – My Friend
He was pretty much singing a duet with himself but I only liked his opera voice, the other one not so much. The song had some great instrumental parts but the rest wasn’t much for me. The stage looked like the Wizard of Oz went all ESC – sooo cheesy.

14. Australia: Isaiah – Don’t Come Easy
I still can’t believe that Australia is a part of this. It takes me 24 hours to get there – so not Europe! But anyway, they had a really great act and it was one of my favorites. Even though he’s only 17, he has a voice that sounds like he has a story to tell. Such pure talent! It was real and didn’t need an over the top show.

15. Greece: Demy – This is Love
Same old, same old. Beautiful woman, upbeat song, good voice but nothing special or touching. At least there were some half-naked dancers.

16. Spain: Manel Navarro – Do It For Your Lover
I liked the parts where he sang in Spanish but the English chorus was just the worst. I wasn’t feeling surfer vibe at all and the whole thing was more like an average school band at prom.

17. Norway: Jowst – Grab The Moment
Well, it wasn’t terrible. The visuals were cool but the outfits irritated me a bit cause it didn’t really match with everything. I think in general, I just didn’t find it all to be very harmonic. Hard to describe – kinda good but also kinda not feeling it.

18. Great Britain: Lucie Jones – Never Give Up On You
I really liked the whole golden vibe and she really has a great voice, sang very clear notes and it’s a good song. But that’s the only word I can think of – good. Not more or less. It was a good standard ESC performance.

19. Cyprus: Hovig Demirjian – Gravity
Well, I guess someone was trying to be Rag ‘n’ Bone Man. There was nothing special about it and I did not feel entertained cause he was definitely trying too hard. And men in ankle-showing pants are just a no for me.

20. Romania: Ilinca feat. Alex Florea – Yodel It!
He was ok but her yodeling was just super annoying, so was her voice. Sure, at least it was unique but it really just gave me a headache.

21. Germany: Levina – Perfect Life
David Guetta called, he wants his song back. This was for my country but oh boy, what a mess. I just think she wasn’t talented enough to have such a weak stage performance. I don’t know how she sang the song before the grand finale but she sounded like she had a cold and lost her voice a bit. And with only a total of 6 points, I guess I’m not the only one who didn’t feel it.

22. Ukraine: O. Torvald – Time
Honestly, I didn’t really pay much attention cause I was busy doing something else. That’s how good it was. I mean, they were definitely not bad if you’re into hard rock and it was kinda cool but far from being my favorite. I was not a fan of his voice. But one rock act has to be in the mix every year.

23. Belgium: Blanche – City Lights
Honestly, she has such a cool voice but it was totally wasted on this electropop song. And it was the most boring performance ever.

24. Sweden: Robin Bengtsson – I Can’t Go On
He totally thought he’s the bomb working that treadmill. His voice is so average. Sure, his face wasn’t bad but that’s about it. I was so not impressed.

25. Bulgaria: Kristian Kostov – Beautiful Mess
His high notes were tough but I liked the feeling he put into the song. His lower notes were really good and he had a cool performance. I always like it when contestants do something different from the usual ESC stuff.

26. France: Alma – Requiem
And of course the show ended with a beautiful woman with a nice voice and all, but overall pretty boring. I wish more contestants would actually be brave. The visuals were cool though. However, I wasn’t really a fan of the voice or the song.

Goodbye April 2017

Goodbye April,

and hello beautiful month of May. Although it’s currently raining outside, I have high hopes for the future weather situation and I just think it’s a great month. I’m definitely looking forward to officially becoming a maid of an honor at one of my besties wedding and I’m also throwing her a bachelorette party, which hopefully will be a ton of fun. Aside from that, I don’t think I have any major plans yet, so I’ll just see what’s coming up or just chill as much as I can.

April was a super busy but also a super fun month. I got out of the house a lot and just enjoyed spending time with lovely people. I went to Denmark for a little vacation and I had a blast exploring Copehagen. I have a good friend living there and it was so fun seeing her again. The city is beautiful, I truly enjoyed my stay and I can’t wait to share more of my trip. My camera sure klicked a lot. I ate a lot of yummy food, went nuts at the Disney Store and just enjoyed life. Now, I caught the travel bug again and I would love to be in new places, all the time. Unfortunately, I need to buy a new car this year, which absolutely sucks, but we’ll see. Maybe I can manage to squeeze in a small trip to Amsterdam or something like that.

There was Easter and I had a good time with my family, ate a lot of food and still have chocolate to keep me covered for weeks. The nice thing about holiday’s is that usually everyone comes back home, so it’s always nice to get the whole clique together and spend some quality time with each other. Those times make me miss school days, even more. It’s so hard nowadays to get everyone together because we’re all busy with our lives and aside from me, everyone is in a relationship, has or is about to have a child, is building houses and all that other grown-up stuff, so it’s even harder for them to make time. Therefore, I cherish all our little get-togethers even more.

Another highlight in April was watching Disney’s Tarzan musical, because it was really great. Sure, not as great as The Lion King, because I doubt there will ever be a better one, but I enjoyed it a lot. It’s so cool how they managed to have everyone swing across the room, the music amazing and I can only recommend it. Another fun adventure was a trip to the amusement park and honestly, every single time I ask myself why the hell I’m doing that to me cause I’m totally getting too old for it. But hey, we’re going again this year and I can get on rides again that screw up my back and make me feel super scared. I’m crazy like that.

So those were the highlights of my month and I hope the year continues to be fun. I do also need some relax time though because I’m super stressed and tired all the time, and I feel like all I do is work, eat and sleep. I mean, I couldn’t survive without catching up on all of my beloved TV-shows. But in general, having plans is good for me cause it keeps me from falling into misery, which occasionally still happens, but I’m doing well and I hope it will continue.

Tons of love,
Hailey
