30 Writing Prompts for Lifestyle Bloggers

So I’m still doing Blogtober, even though I’m running pretty late, today. It’s really hard to keep up, cause I just have so much going on, but I’m determined to pull through. To help other bloggers, I thought, I’d put together a new list with prompts, in case someone needs an idea or two. And if these aren’t enough, also check out my list from 2016.

My Fall TV Schedule

If you haven’t figured it out by now, I can tell you one thing, I am absolutely addicted to watching TV shows. I just can’t get enough and don’t have a problem with enjoying 20 at once. So I am always super happy when it’s fall and the new TV schedule is back. I make a list with all the starts and get on my weekly binge. Not all of my favorites are back yet, but we’re getting there. So in case you need some inspiration, here is what I’m watching and also what I’m looking forward to. Maybe you’ll find some new ones for yourself.

01. The Big Bang Theory
Is anyone else super sad that it’s the last season? Totally gonna miss that bunch. I’m really curious who will have a child next.

02. Young Sheldon
He’s just so adorable. Also annoying as hell, but cute.

03. American Housewife
I love this woman. The only person I love even more on that show is her friend Doris.

04. Modern Family
Someone told me that a main character is supposed to die this season. I mean, what the hell??? Who on earth should that be? I don’t even want to know.

05. Chicago P.D.
I still miss Erin Lindsey, but the show will always be my favorite from the Chicagos. I feel like Jay could walk around sans shirt more often, but other than that, it’s amazing.

06. Chicago Fire
It’s not quite the same without Gabriela Dawson, but the show must go on. They should just never get rid of Kelly Severide and all is good.

07. Grey’s Anatomy
No matter how long this show goes on, I can’t imagine it ever getting boring. Maybe Meredith will finally find love again, although I absolutely salute her for being a badass woman on her own.

08. How To Get Away With Murder
This show is so crazy and captivating. I feel like the characters can get a bit annoying but Annalise Keating is the queen.

09. Will & Grace
This show always makes me laugh and is just as great as it was in the 90s. If you haven’t watched it yet, what the hell is wrong with you?!

10. Station 19
Sure, Chicago Fire is better, but it works well together with Grey’s Anatomy, so I’m watching.

11. Keeping Up With the Kardashians
The show didn’t really start in fall, but it’s still going and I can never get enough of this crazy family. My number one guilty pleasure.

12. Jersey Shore Family Vacation
The show is almost over, but still fun to watch. It’s crazy how much they’ve all changed.

13. Riverdale
It will be back this week and I can’t wait to see, what those kids have to deal with. Nothing will probably beat season one, but I’m still going to watch it.

14. Dynasty
That family is just bananas, so I’m obviously watching. And I just love Fallon Carrington.

15. Charmed
I am really curious what they’ve come up with. I didn’t do much reading prior to the start of the show, so I’ll let it surprise me. I definitely was a fan in the 90s.

16. Supergirl
I just like watching the girl of steel do her work.

17. The Connors
So how are they just gonna go on without Roseanne? I’m happy that the cast has their jobs back. Nobody should be punished for the actions of another person’s stupidity and ignorance.

18. House of Cards
I salute them for kicking Kevin Spacey off and giving Robin Wright the role as main character. I can’t wait to see you in action, Mrs. President.

The Fall Tag

Since I was a little over all the tags floating around the blogosphere, I just thought, I’ll put together my own little fall tag. There are no rules for this one, just answer the questions and have fun. Of course you can tag other bloggers, if you want to. And of course you can call it autumn, if you like.

I tag the lovely Kristina from Royal Lifestyle by Honey, Tina from Tea is for Tina, Aoife from Pretty Purple Polka Dots, Megan from Reflections and Ramblings and Kaitlin from Leviosa not Leviosa. I’m looking forward to reading their answers.

The Fall Tag

01. What is favorite thing about fall?
I absolutely love, when the leaves change colors and it always puts a smile on my face, when I drive by colorful trees. I love a good fall wardrobe and I definitely feel less bad for spending lots of time inside my room. Cozy days and nights are the best. And I can whip out my beloved hot water bottle.

02. What do you dislike about fall?
When it gets colder, my skin gets really dry, especially on my hands, which can hurt pretty bad. I don’t like when it’s too cold for my fall wardrobe and I’m not a fan of pumpkin spice anything, but other than that, I pretty much love it all.

03. How does your perfect day/night in on a cold and rainy day look like?
I definitely start with sleeping in, have maybe a yummy croissant and a big cup of tea for breakfast, watch some cartoons and then spend the afternoon writing, reading, scrapbooking, maybe doing a puzzle and of course watch movies or TV shows. I do most of that in bed, on my floor or nowadays in my beautiful armchair, always wrapped in a blanket, cause it’s pretty cold in my basement room.

04. Do you have any fall traditions?
I don’t think I do. Maybe collecting chestnuts and acorns, even though I have no use for them. They’re just so pretty. Occasionally, I carve a pumpkin, which I definitely want to do, this year. I even bought myself a whole kit.

05. What is your favorite fall color?
You know those red maple trees? That red is just the most beautiful color ever and seeing it always makes me really happy and I have to take a picture, every time. I absolutely hate mustard yellow, though.

Red maple

06. What is your go-to fall drink?
I have this thing, where I don’t really like to drink hot drinks when it’s warm, but when it cools off in fall, I drink lots of tea. Mostly black tea.

07. Every season has a soundtrack. Name your favorite three songs for fall.
The Common Linnets – Calm After The Storm
Ryan Adams – Wonderwall
Ed Sheeran – I See Fire

08. Do you celebrate Thanksgiving? If yes, how?
Unfortunately, it’s not really a popular holiday in Germany, because I think it’s lovely to come together, eat lots and lots of food and share what you are thankful for. If I ever get my own place, I’d love to do a Friendsgiving. Or maybe I’ll be lucky enough to experience one in the US again, cause that’s the best. I’ve been a part of one in 2014, and I really loved it.

09. What is your go-to fall outfit?
I’m honestly really good with my fall wardrobe. I usually wear basic black leggings, a black long shirt and switch around all my cardigans. Boots, a fake leather jacket, maybe a scarf and a beanie and I’m good to go. I honestly have no problems dressing for the season and I always feel pretty comfortable.

10. Finally, share a beautiful fall picture.

Being a Godmother

Almost eight years ago, I was asked to be a godmother, for the first time. My uncle got married and became a father later on in life, so I was actually old enough to take on this important and meaningful role. I remember telling my mom that I would be so disappointed if they picked her over me, cause she definitely was too old. (Yes, I told her to her face.) and I just really wanted it. I don’t know, I just think that being a godmother is the absolute best job for me. Cause even though I don’t really see myself having my own children, I love those, who I can give back, at the end of the day.

So what does this mean to me? Everything! The fact that someone trusts me with their child, if, God forbid, anything ever happened to them, is just one of the greatest compliments anyone could ever give me. It is one of the greatest honors of life and yes, also a huge responsibility, but one, I’m happily taking.

My godson turns eight in December, which is just unbelievable. They just grow up too fast. But from the first time I held him, I was madly in love and I’m really glad that we developed a great relationship, over the years. Although I have to admit, the older they get, the harder it is to find common grounds. He is a boy, after all. But still, we’re close and I really hope, it will forever stay like this.

We’ve had lots of fun sleepovers, were we usually just eat a ton of junk food and watch movies. We love the same TV shows like Phineas and Ferb or Scooby Doo, which just shows you how perfect I am for the job. I may be 30 on paper, but my inner child is pretty present. We have shared so many laughs together and I wish, I had every single one of them on tape, cause there is nothing cuter than the sound of a child laughing. I remember the special feeling, when he started saying my name, or when he fell asleep in my arms, while we danced at his parents’ wedding, it was just the cutest thing.

When I was away as an au pair, I went home for Christmas and he didn’t believe anyone, who told him. He was like nope, she’s in America. Can you believe how thrilled he was, when I actually showed up?! Apparently, he jumped up and down, saying my name a lot, when he saw me getting out of the car. And when he was standing in front of me, he was silent and couldn’t believe his eyes. It was the cutest thing. He still gives me kisses, he listens to me and doesn’t love me any less for being strict. These are just a few things to describe our relationship. I just really live for this role.

This is why I was so happy to find out that I will be godmother for the second time. One of my absolute best friends in the whole world asked me with a letter that was written by her baby and I was beyond thrilled and of course cried. So now that my first one has reached an age, where it gets more and more difficult to find things he’s interested in, I’m getting a brand new one. Also a boy, but I got quite the experience with them. I’m just really looking forward to meeting the little guy and I know it’s just gonna be wonderful. I really hope that we’ll create a strong bond and lots of great memories together.

So I’m really looking forward to more years of being a godmother and I’m honestly pretty sure that two will not be my final number. And who knows, maybe someone will give me a girl in the future? But for now, I’m just honored, excited and looking forward to every second with the boy, who will soon be in my life. I can buy presents again that still make an impression on a kid. Once they have everything and only care about video games or their friends, it’s pretty much over. However, I always do my best to keep the kids happy, so this one can totally consider himself lucky.
