I'm really excited about how this beautiful notebook (and hopefully me … Continue reading Customizing my Midori.
Apart from my love for beautiful stationery and planners, there is another thing I am passionate about: coffee. I've been working as a barista for over 4 years now, and in these 4 years I came all the way from "extra-sweet large caramel latte" to "single-origin v60 please". When I started to work at the … Continue reading Happy #thirdwavewichteln from Helsinki to Hamburg.
So that's really it, 2015 has come and gone, and a new year has begun! Today is January 1st, and as I am sitting here and contemplating what I have done, seen, and achieved in the last year, I realize that I've been through a lot in these past months.
