March favorites and all that jazz.

Right now I am 100 % back in Germany. Last week I was still struggling getting back into my everyday routine of studying, cooking and living, but with uni coming back on this week, I HAD to be back. It's surprising how stressful just for days of uni can be, otherwise it felt great seeing all the people and my weekend is filled with catching-up events (and trying to remember all the vocab from last term).
So today I thought I would give you some overview of my favorites during these few days back in my "normal" life, since you pretty much saw all my "Indian favorites" in my Bag-post. I know, it's not a lot, but it covers pretty much the last 2 weeks of being here again. And someday (after sourcing through all my 2000 India pictures I will actually post another India related post, no matter wether you want or not :))

1. Dark green Cheap Monday jeans Up to now most of you will probably know about my obsession with the jeans of this brand, so it was a must to add another pair to my collection after seeing this baby in the midseason sales. And I always dreamed about dark green skinnies.
2. Silver statement necklace Jopp, another addition to another field of addiction, this subtle statement necklace (sounds strange, I know, but this about it) was found at a local flea market and it has my love right now. I can't wait to be finally able to leave the house without a scarf hiding every necklace I wear.
3. Plant seeds I  never had a green thumb, but strangely I wanted to try growing my own salad and edible flowers this spring, so far I can say my plants do actually still live.
4. Sun glasses Since I was kinda a late one with transferring the money to my uni, I had to rely on my bike instead of the bus the past week. But cruising through the city with sunglasses is a instant boost for your will to ride a bike.
5. Urea lip balm from Balea After a long flight your skin is always really dry and especially this product helped a lot to fight the dryness. Plus it is in a tube, so you can actually still use it after having a cold, since no bacteria can come inside.
6. Good coffee The north of India is like a desert to coffee lovers and therefore I've been drinking coffee non-stop after returning.

And another favorite was the whole action around "Post aus meiner Küche" (mail from my kitchen), a website where three lovely girls do initiate food swaps with home-made goods concerning one certain topic every few months. This months it was all about childhood memories and I decided to take part for the first time. I drew lots for the lovely Eva and she gifted me that generously that I felt really, really bad for my really small package, but I was actually struggling with finding actual meals from my childhood. One thing I do remember about food in my childhood has to be, that I liked nearly nothing, I was a picky child hating a lot of the things, I nowadays love: Tomatoes, french fries (really early), vegetables (in general), pineapple, salad, mushrooms, and, and, and. Still, I've got the images from the swap, just see and enjoy.

So when you German readers are interested in the action, just head over to Post aus meiner Küche and wait for the next round.
That's it from me, I have to get to uni and learn something about History in the virtual world and about the History of the Middle East. Oh joy!
