 TGIF 12.09.14

  • EAT: If you, like me, have been feeling super crappy lately then soup is the best option for an upset stomach.
  • DRINK: a negative side effect from IVF are swollen ovaries. I have been drinking self made protein shakes this whole time and they really make a difference. Add some oatmeal and you get a nice healthy snack, or in my case a meal substitution for my upset stomach.
  • WATCH: Actually i have been sleeping a lot lately (feeling bad all the time really is exhausting...), but the hubs and i just finished watching Silicon Valley and let me tell you: it's hilarious! These guys are the real nerds and they are awesome ;-) plus the season only has 8 episodes of 30 min. each (which of course is super cool when you're feeling like s*** and are unable to concentrate long enough...)

I wish you all a nice healthy weekend!

  • EAT: OMG OMG OMG OMG OMG really? darn! i just ate the last banana! :-(
  • DRINK: I actually have made some Fruit Infused Water, but never with this many fruits and i would recommend to leave them sit about a day. Yummy! BTW how cool are those bottles?
  • WATCH: I know this series is not new, but hey, it's never too late, right? True Detective is one of the best series ever! Matthew McConaughey and Woody Harrelson are superb! Favourite duo since Walter White and Jesse Pinkman ;-) If you still haven't seen it, what are you waiting for?

Happy Friday!

Movie Review: Transcendence

Posted by beritas
story tags: 

Once again we have watched far too many movies and i haven't done any reviews at all...

Let's start with Transcendence. I actually liked this movie. I think it's not only a good sci-fi movie, but it also makes you think about mankind and science. Where is science taking us? Not only how can we use it to save the planet and our species, but also how far are we willing to go to achieve our goals? And of course there is also the other side: people afraid of science, of the changes it may bring or the sacrifices made in it's name and how far are they willing to go to stop it.

I recommend it very much, if you haven't seen it yet.

DIY: Cutout Washi Tape Cards

Posted by beritas

Another month has passed and it's time again for some Birthday Cards DIY tutorial! I really liked this Mother's Day Card idea and decide to give it a try.

These cards are very easy to make, but they do take a lot of time. It took me about 2-3 days to finish 10 cards...

Supplies

Fold your extra card in half and draw also just half of whatever motif you want. I made a heart, a birthday cake and a balloon. 

Drawing

Cut the shape out...

Cutting

... and place it on your actual card.

Placing

Now have fun taping your card with the washi tape.

Taping

With a cutter or an Xacto knife cut out your motif but be careful not to cut to deep into the card. You can also even out the edges of the card.

Cutting again

Afterwards write your message with different markers, colors, whatever you want to use and you're done!

Writing

I loved these cards! It's really a lot of work, but they are super pretty!

TGIF 29.08.14

  • EAT: now i have to go out again to buy potatoes and make these French Fries!
  • DRINK: how about adding a little bit of rum to this Lemonade?
  • WATCH: being a huge fan of gangster movies like The Godfather trilogy, Scarface, Goodfellas and so on, i decided to give Mob Wives a try and let me tell you... what a lot of... well, you know. It's funny and sad at the same time... i have always asked myself how people can be so blind and really believe that there is nothing wrong with what they do... 

I wish you a lot of fun!

On other news: i know the Blog has stalled a little bit lately and i apologize for that, but as i told you in my hormones post life has been somewhat complicated this past month. I'm trying to find my way into a normal routine again, but it's taking more time than expected. I also already know the results from the IVF treatment, but i hope you understand that i'm not ready to share just yet. I still have to figure things out for myself and all i ask from you is time and patience. In the meantime look forward some DIYs and a short family vacation! :-)
