places I’ve been

Hey guys!

Since I plan on traveling to some new places after my high school gratuation next year, I thought I’d give you an idea of how far I’ve traveled until now.

I created three seperate maps with this interactive map creator:

world map:

Europe map:

USA map:

 

As you can see, I have been to quite a few countries in Europe (that is because I live in Germany, which is in central Europe), a few states of the USA, the only Asian country I’ve been to is Israel and I’ve never been to Africa. However, this autumn I went to the canary islands which are part of Spain politically, but belong to Africa geographically. Also, I’ve never been to the Spanish mainland, only to Lanzarote (canary islands) and Mallorca (balearic islands) twice.

Come back checking the updates I’m gonna be posting next year!

“Cruelty free” make-up

Since I am a vegetarian I eventually decided to give away almost all my make-up products that were tested on animals (I just kept the ones that were either too expensive or used too often to give them away).

You might think that it’s quite difficult to find so-called “cruelty free” products, especially if you’re a student like me and/ or on a budget, but there are actually plenty of animal friendly alternatives for pretty much everything, from everyday drugstore to high end products.

I will update this from time to time, but here’s a list of 100% cruelty free companies. You’re welcome.

Indie- and Blues Rock Singer Minnie Marks

Hello guys!

I’ve been listening to indie-/ blues rock a lot lately, so I decided to write about awesome

Indie- And Blues Rock Singer Minnie Marks.

When I saw her live performance back in 2014 at “Late Night Blues” (Loev Hotel, Binz, Rügen, Germany) I fell in love with her voice immediately (It’s made of a lot of alcohol and cigarettes, I guess ;)). She was super nice and she even gave me an autograph :)…

I also sent her an email half a year ago and asked her for the lyrics and chords of her songs and she actually replied, attached everything I asked her for and wrote some really nice things along with it.

Minnie Marks: Voodoo ‘N’ Honey

Voodoo ‘N’ Honey is Minnie’s second studio album (after “Mystery Box” [2010]). She also recorded a live album called “Live In Stuttgart” [2014], which is only avaiable at live shows.). It was released in 2012 (label: CDBaby).

It consists of 12 unique tracks, each and every one of them with the potential to get stuck in your head for days. There are some calm songs (“Guitar And A Bicycle”, “Thief In The Night”, “Smoke Filled Eyes”, “Long Walk Home”) but also some full of energy (“Liar, Liar Pants On Fire”, “Legs To Make Us Look Longer”, “Jack In The Box”) and all in all it really is a great composition, especially because it’s got different parts of several genres, such as folk, blues, blues rock, indie rock ect. It’s got the right song for every mood and it tells you to get the funk out of your bed and go kick some butt just when you need it.

My favorite songs are “Little People”, “Smoke Filled Eyes” and “Guitar And A Bicycle”, but I really do love all of them.

I’d give “Voodoo ‘N’ Honey” 9/10 points, I really recommend checking out her music! Watch her performing “Little People” below and visit her website and social media:
