Autumn, are you here to stay?

Will this be a love song about autumn? I´m afraid so. Just like everyone else, I have a deeply rooted love for this time of the year and I always feel especially excited about life, when the leaves are changing. Might be that I´m just no summer child, as I can´t stand the heat, so I naturally enjoy my weather colder and with a touch of dreariness. To me there is just nothing than a walk in the chilly November air followed by a hot chocolate (with amaretto!) in a warm and cozy café or bundeling up at home. This relaxing and comfy "me"-time is rather needed these days, after stressing so much about finishing college all summer long. So I will try and soak up as much autumnal magic as possible this year and cherish every moment. Outfit-wise I´m all ready and set for layering and my coats and scarves are awaiting their time to shine. This burgundy one is the newest addition to my slightly over-sized collection and I´m already in love.

As I mentioned in my previous post, I can´t wait to type down a list with my favourite reads and I´d love to say hello to a few of you who might be using goodreads- as I´m a naturally nosy person and always interested in what other people are reading. So feel free to add me there!
I hope you liked my autumnal love song and the moments I captured with my phone over the last couple of weeks. I know everybody expresses their feelings towards the Pumpkin Spice Latte season and seems to be super eager about it, but let´s be honest- it´s a damn fine season.
 What´s not to love about it?

Travel diary: a trip to the bottom of my heart, a trip to Prague

Here it finally is: the second post about my summer trip through Poland and the Czech Republic. The holiday does actually feel like a lifetime ago, but I love taking that trip down memory lane, as Prague is one of my favourite places in the world and holds a very special place in my heart. I visited the city many times, so I did not end up doing too many tourist things while I was back there in August. Most of the time was spent eating to be honest and I enjoyed a few delicious trdelnik filled with melted nutella, hearty dinners and a lot of beer. I did also stroll through every possible corner and took quite a few pictures of all the beautiful places this city has to offer.

That cake though! I know that Café Louvre is no secret tip, but I still really love it there. Every time I visit Prague, my trip will end with a piece of cake and a cup of hot chocolate there, because the rooms of the café are beautiful, the waiters are dressed super classy and their desserts are simply to die for.

That´s it for today. Now that my messy college work is done, I can´t wait to blog a bit more and I plan on putting together a post about my favourite books very soon. I hope you´re going to like a bit of a different post up here.

Travel diary: rainy summer days in Kraków

As it is more than time to overcome the silence here on this blog, I prepared a little travel diary about my recent travels to Poland and the Czech Republic. This summer wasn't actually as travel heavy as other years (due to the ugly obligation of writing my master thesis) so I looked forward to this trip even more and was not disappointed at all. After a short stop and night in Wroclaw, we spent a great deal of time in Krakow and I can only recommend you to visit this city as well, if you haven't already been there. It was beautiful, full of charm and history. We spend most of our time strolling around old town and visiting museums and the Wawel castle. Obviously, we ate plenty of pierogi and drank lots of beer. One rainy morning (it did rain a lot...) led us to quite a gem and so we enjoyed delicious lunch and tea at the Massolit English bookshop and cafe with a book browse afterwards. Definitely worth a visit! All in all Krakow was truly a perfect place for a getaway, so I'd really love to go back again one day.

After Wroclaw and Krakow we traveled on towards Prague. But I leave this to another post, well I have to anyway, because I once again snapped way too many pictures. If it is getting too silent here in the meantime, don't forget to visit me on Instagram, as I post things like current reads, looks and tons of coffee pots much more regularly than here.
