Soooo good to be back! ♥

FINALLY got the virus deleted from my notebook, feels like I didn´t post for ages... >///<
So good to be back now, and it feels even better since none of my followers left me... thank you so much! ;__; That´s really touching...

Many things happened meanwhile!
I started working at kid's ICU (Intensive Care Unit) and kid's (1 to 12 years) unit at our hospital, which is just amazing. I feel so... "home". xD I can't help it, I just love working with kid's (used to work at kid´s psychiatry and newborn ward before, best experiences of my life!) - it feels to wonderful to be able to help them getting well again! =)

Ahhhw, enough of that! ~ Talking about work is boring. =)

It got sooooo freezing cold in Germany the past weeks!
It even started snowing on the mountains around here, which makes it even more uncomfortable to stay outside. x___X
(freeeeezing cold wind!)

Random photo I've taken when I visited my hometowns annual flea market.Can you see the snowy mountain in the back? I want summer to return! Dx
The flea market itself was pretty disappointing, just bought a pair of overknee stockings and some sexy jewelry for my Honey ♥.

A week ago, I decided to loli-fy my life a bit more again, so I took one of the biggest challenges in my lolita lifetime - BAKING MACARONS! >////<

I heard horrible stories about how terribly complicated it is to bake nice macarons... so even if I had the idea of making them myself for years, I never took a heart and made some.

But then I found a really nice recipe recently, and I just had to finally give it a try!
I also went so freakin' nuts to adjust the recipe to my tastes a bit, oh what a crazy bitch I am! D:
(Haha, actually I just replaced the powdered food color with liquid one, since it's the only type available in stores here. xD" But that changes the whole recipe, macarons are so fragile! =/)

The dough carefully placed on the baking tray...
...of course they had to be pink. xD

After baking!
Well, they're not perfect since their "feet" are showing way too much, but still... for my first try with an adjusted recipe, I think they turned so well and tasty!
I was so happy about that! >////< I spontaneously decided to bake some mint colored ones, too! xD
Macaron army, hr hr hr... >D

I filled the pink ones with peppermint cream, and the green ones with raspberry & lemon cream!
They were so tasty with a cup of lemon tea ♥
I shared them with my family and workmates, they really liked them, too! Ahhhw, it feels so good to cook and bake stuff for others! x3

I'll have to adjust the recipe a bit more, to make them become really perfect in shape and taste.
Once I've done that, I'll share it with you! =D

And for the end of this post, some recent gets!
(Actually there are a few more, but I didn't have the time to take decent photos of all of them... xD")

D.I.A skull belt
Bought it second hand from another german girl, thanks so much! =D
It's a little damaged on the leather band, but I just repaired that with some hot glue!
I wanted a rockish D.I.A belt for ages, and that one is just perfect! It's made of some snake-leather stamped material (no real snake leather for sure, since the material is just too thick), and has got some blingy gemstones all over! *__*

D.I.A Cardigan
It's a F size (Free size) cardigan by D.I.A, so I assumed it would be more of an XS or S size... I was aware that it might be too small on me, but surprisingly I can really fit in! :´D
Most loved item I recently got ♥

Yumetenbo leo blouse
*klick link above to see a way better stock photo of it!*
Instant LOVE. *__*
It's so sexy, I especially love the swallow-tail like back part of it!
Damn, I'm so into leo print right now! xD"

Yumetenbo heart heeled OVK boots
I was actually looking so forward on getting them, since their stock photo has taken my heart in an instant. But when I took them out of the box, I was really disappointed with the quality...
They're made of some very stiff and rough artificial leather. I guess it'll be easy for all kind of dirt to get stick on them. ~__~

The bow clip...
...came crooked and looking sad like this.
I'll try to fix it with sewing it in place, but seriously... I even got better quality bows from TaoBao for 20 cents...

Most annoying...
The shoes came stained with some white-greyish powder, might be dust or something like that!
(Yes, the stains were there before I was trying them on. xD)
Which probably proofs my verdict about the dust-sucking material. ^^"

Besides, that - the shoes are lovely and really cute. But those flaws are nothing I ever expected from Yumetenbo. I bought a lot of items from them already and will still do, but those boots leave a bittersweet memory in my mind. <.<

That's it for now, I better hurry back and study some more about "ketogenic diet" - uhw, a really boring topic of medical science for me. But last week I had to figure that I mostly forgot EVERYTHING about that topic, which is a big NO NO for my current work situation.
So let's waste Saturday night on it... *sigh* xD"

I´m getting old.
*self-pity off*

Have a gorgeous weekend and hopefully some warm sunshine for you! =D

It´s such a sweet, sweet life, isn´t it?
