30 November

1. December tomorrow! I don't actually have an advent calender this year, but i suppose it would only be an excuse for extra calories for a whole 24 days. But i'm so excited for Christmas- it's coming up really fast and i absolutely love this season. Going to Starbucks at Jungfernstieg and spending evenings at the Weihnachtsmarkt. I don't want it to end at all. 25 sleeps to go. :)

Enter Shikari - Sssnakepit

cardigan, skirt, bag - h&m / shirt dress - new look / necklace - topshop, oxford street.

Went into the city today to get a Starbucks at Jungfernstieg. Got a Toffee Nut latte, but i really prefer it as a frappè, even despite the weather being 1°c. I'm going to be really sad when Christmas is over and they stop selling them.

Also went for a run this morning in Stadtpark, which felt so good since i haven't been for a run in a few weeks (so lazy!) and i miss it like crazy. Since July last year i used to go to the gym 3+ times a week and run every day that i wasn't at the gym, as well as 2-3 days hockey each week and also eat so healthy, but then when i moved to Germany that all turned to custard. Hopefully i can persuade myself to get out and run more often again, but it's getting so cold now that the motivation to step outside of the warm house is low. And the constant presence of Christmas cookies in the house and want for a warm meal are causing me trouble.

Tried a video Outfit of the day for the first time on Friday before heading up to the Reeperbahn. Had such a bad day on Friday- worked overtime so i had to cancel plans with my friend, which was so annoying :(. Then i left my phone on the bus, so now it´s gone and was so upset going home, but then my friend told me just come out anyway and i´m glad i did because it was a great night, didn´t get to sleep until 6am, and then had to work at 9am, but oh well, you´re only young once! (watch in HD!)

Modestep - To The Stars, BBC Radio 1 Live Lounge

hat - cotton on / shirt - h&m / shoes - ebay / bag - unknown.

Yesterday i had some free time over lunch and was craving a Starbucks gingerbread latte, so i went into town to Jungferntieg and am standing in line when the guy in front of me suddenly turns around and says something in English to me. I was so surprised because this is Germany and wasn´t expecting to hear English and the first thing i said was "how did you know i was English?!" and he said didn't, just that everyone here can speak English anyway, which is partly true. Anyway, he was telling me about how he's from America and in Hamburg for the week for work and then he paid for my drink too, said it was really nice meeting me and went off on his way. :) How nice that a complete stranger bought my drink for me just as a random act of kindness. Made my day!

Don´t go - Wretch 32

Starbucks christmas coffees - süüüüüüüüchtig! Photos from Saturday met a friend for lunch at Alex am Alster and did some shopping in the a lot of h&m's. Toffee nut frappe and and then went back again for a warm gingerbread latte. Yummy :)

Hamburg's looking so christmasy already with fairy lights and christmas decorations everywhere. The Christmas markets at Jungfernstieg and the Rathaus are both already being built and i can't wait for them to open. Gonna spend a lot of evenings there walking through the snow and drinking Gluhwein. I love the whole Christmas/winter season here and i've never even been as excited about it as i am this year in Germany, since where i grew up there was nothing special about a summer Christmas. 40 days!

Fuck loadsa dubstep - Rizzle Kicks.

I´m OBSESSED with my new navy gilet from H&M. I really wanted to splash out for a Jack Wills one, but that means one) waiting two months until i´m back in England and can visit a JW store and two) it saved me odd £80 ;)
Too bad it´s suddenly become freezing here in Hamburg, (2°c today) that you can not survive without being bundled up in a winter coat.

Make sure you make your biggest wish ever at 11:11 today, because we´re never going to see another 11.11.11!
I believe in wishes because i think they are quite placeboic in that if you want something (within reason) hard enough, you´ll unconsciously make it work out for yourself. But remember to keep your wish a secret, otherwise they won´t work.
I have three big wishes, so fingers crossed! :)

Price Tag Rural Mix - Rizzle Kicks

shirt, skirt and gilet - h&m / boys hoodie - urban equip / wedges - ebay / nails - #43 fruit salad, collection 2000

Outfit photos from Friday night we went out to the Sternschanze and the Reeperbahn! Had an amazing night and went into a lot of clubs in Große Freiheit. Have any of my German readers been to the Reeperbahn? You definitely must whilst in Hamburg, the nightlife is amazing there and everyone was still partying hard after 6am when we left! But then i had to wait 20 minutes in the cold outside Hbf for my bus, which sucked, so next time i need to get my timing right with the S1.

Shine a light - McFly ft. Taio Cruz

jumper- vintage adidas, gilet and jeans - h&m

It´s really moving onto winter now and autumn is disappearing quickly as each day the yellow leaves on the trees are less and less and accumulating as piles on the footpath . Sorry if that sounded poetic, but it´s hard to talk about something like seasons without being poetic! I actually just ripped these jeans this evening after taking these photos, which i´m pretty gutted about because i´ve worn them so much they feel like a part of me! Oh well, RIP h&m jeans :(

New things: black pop skirt h&m and dalmation oversize shirt from h&m via ebay.

It´s November today! Hard to believe that there are only two months left of 2011. I was looking at my 100 things to do list i made for this year and i still need to cross at least 20 more off. My aim is to achieve at least 50, but a lot of them were really tough ones...

I started the month good by going for a run today and then doing about 40 minutes of cardio afterwards. Hopefully i can keep it up for the rest of the month and for next and then i will be able to cross some more things off of my list before 2012.
I was at Jungfernstieg today and got this skirt, which i´ve been meaning to buy for absolute months and i´m so glad i finally did! The best thing about this skirt is that because it´s so simple, you can wear it with every kind shirt over leggings and make it more "acceptable" rather than just wearing leggings. Every single day my outfit consists of leggings now, and i don´t have enough bum-covering shirts, so this skirt is like the perfect cure!
