Hello Everyone.  This month I didn't do to bad with shopping. The items I pick up were things I need. The things I didn't need were thing that I have been want to try out or plain out wanting.  Like the #Celfie tank. I been wanting a #celfie item ever since they came out. So I was super excite to find the #celfie tank on sale at the Berlin H&M.  Also the H&M was have a buy 2 get 1 Free basic sale. So I pick up 3 tube tops for layers items. Plus the ones I had were a little small on me. 

As for the makeup I didn't need any of it. I more so brought the eyeshadow due to the eyeshadow prime. Since I have been want to try an eye primer out. This month I started to tight line my water lines. So I decide to try a new eye liner out. Which this wet n wild eyeliner suck. I do use the creme eyeshadow out of it. So its not a total loss in money. Also this month I decide I want to try out the whiting stripe again. So since I had a 10 coupon. I though it was a prefect time to buy them. 

The next 2 up coming month I'm putting myself back on a clothes shopping ban. Due to I have an upcoming trip in November. So I want to save my clothes money to spend then. 

Total Spending for the Year
March~ 464.59
April~ 48.15
June~ 20.96

Total Saving for the Year
April~ 757.54
June~ 1,054.47

Westin Grand

Happy Saturday Everyone. I normal don't post on Saturday but today I wanted to share the hotel we stay at in Berlin. We stayed at the Westin Grand. It is a 5 star hotel. Everything about it was super nice. Unfortunately Hubby and me didn't use everything that was available to use. Like the indoor swimming pool. We were to busy out exploring Berlin. 
   On Saturday WB(Warner Brother) Production was filming a German film at are hotel. Which was super cool. We stay around and watch for a bit. The working making the film told us we have to move. Due to we were in the shots. Over all it was sure a highlight of are trip. We did get some pictures of it but we will not be sharing them on the internet. 
 This is the inside of the hotel. This was the selling point for us. When we were looking at place to stay in Berlin.  If you are plan a trip to Berlin I highly recommend this hotel to stay in. It is in the middle of the heart of everything. You have tons of shops to shop at. Including like 3 H&M by the hotel.  Also you can walk to very thing you want to see. Like Check point Charles. Which I did see. Just have no picture of it to share.

Flower Earring From Forever 21~.49 Cents
 Silver Sperry From the PX~17.97

Happy Friday Everyone. Today is my last outfit I wore in Berlin. On our last day in Berlin we didn't do much. We try to go eat at Ampelmann but the kitchen was not serving food until 3pm. Which was to late for us. Due to we had to be heading to the train station at that time to head back home. So we went to a different restaurant and ate. After we ate we went to Starbucks and got coffee. 

Berlin has two Ampelmann Stores. On Saturday night my hubby got me this hoodie, a t-shirt and a hat for him. There was a shirt he wanted to get but they didn't have it in his size at the store by are hotel. We were lucky and find the shirt he wanted on are last day in Berlin.  I have to tell you all don't be surprised if you see this hoodie again. It has been coming on of my favorite hoodie to wear. 

I wish I could share all my Berlin pictures with you all but there is way to many of them. I have been sharing differant photo's on my  Instagram account of Berlin. So make sure you follow me there if you want to see more.

Hello Everyone. On are 3rd day in Berlin. We went to the zoo. Which we had a lot of fun looking at all the animals. Even with it raining on and off that day. As for my outfit. I wasn't plan on packaging my soft kitty t-shirt.  On the day we where getting ready to leave my husband asked if I had pack this t-shirt. I told him no. He told me that he thought it would be a good idea to add it in. So I tossed it in my suitcase and we left. In the end I'm glad I had it. Since I packed more dresser clothes. 

The outside of Der Zoologische Garten (The Zoo) looked like something you would see in China. Which it was so hard to get a picture of the outside of the zoo. Due to children kept climbing on the elephants. 

I would have to say one of my favorite part of the zoo was seeing the elephants. Which when we got over to see them. They were getting washed to head back inside there building. The elephant were very thirsted. The zoo keeper would remove the water away from there mouth. Then the elephant would look at them like give me more water. Then they would open there mouth up again. It was the cutest thing.
This is one of my favorite picture my husband took at the zoo. 
This cat posed like this all day. 

Linking up to WIWW(what I wore Wednesday) over at  The Pleated Poppy.

The weather was being super bi-polar that day. One minute it was cold and I need something for my arm. Then it was hot and I didn't need anything for them. I will have to say I'm glad I find this black dresser cardigan at the recycling center. It works prefect for this day. 

At night on are second day in Berlin. We had dinner plans to eat at Nocti Vagus. Which is a dark restaurant  You eat your food in the dark.  I have to tell you all. It was so much fun to eat here. Plus the food was amazing. It was the one thing on my husband bucket list. That he has been dying to do. 

Instead of get a taxi or taking a bus. We decide to walk there. It was a 30 minute walk from our hotel. During are walk we pass the Tv Tower.  Which it was so pretty to see it at night.  The Tv Tower is the only thing we didn't get to do during the day. Over all I'm happy we were able to see it up close.

Hello Everyone. Where in the world is August going to. I can't believe 2014 is half away over with. Since I'm doing a Berlin week next week. I decide today would be the prefect day to do my nail recap. Which this month I paint my toenail twice. Which I normal only do them once a month.

This month I try out the Kiss nail art sticker with gel polish. I have to say I really like how it try out. I also learn when you are using these sticker with gel polish. You first have have to wipe the stickiness off from curing your nails. Then add the sticker and add the gel top coat. Also this month I decide to do an ombre nail. Which after doing them. I wished I would have done the color a little different. 

I hope you all have a great week. Tomorrow I'm going to a BBQ. Beside that this weekend should be a low key one.

Inspire Swap

Hello Everyone. Back in June I sign up for the inspire swap. That  Rachael of The Rachael way and Meghan of They call her Meghan hosted. The swap reveal was on July 2. The reason why this post is over a month late. Is due to the package I sent to my partner Becky of  Mise En Place. Took a month to get to her. Which I was super worried it got lost in the mail. So I was super happy when she told me last week she got her package.

I had so much fun getting to know Becky. With the little time we had to get to know each other before we had to ship are boxes out. The reason why we didn't have much time was due to Becky live in Australia and I live in Germany. So we were trying to get are boxes to each other before the swap deadline. Which as you readied my box didn't make it in time. The box Becky sent me took only 2 weeks to get to me but for some odd reason my box decide to take forever.  One thing we learned about each other is we are July babies.

Thanks aging for being an awesome swap partner Becky. I truly love everything you sent me. I will be used and eating everything you sent me. Even the box you mailed the package in will be getting reused. 

What Becky sent me
~Australia Post Card~ Which will be hanging up on my cork board
~Paper Mate Pen~ Which I'm always on a hurt for a pens to use
~To do list~ I love making list. So this notepad is going to come in handy
~2 Celebrity balm~ These lip balms smell amazing
~Allen's Killer Pythons Gummy~ If you read my blog on a regular basic. Then you know I'm a gummy bear fan.
~ 2 Pink cupcake oven mitten~ Which are going to be put to good use. Since the ones I had were going bad.

You can see what I got Becky HERE.

Guest Post: Things to do in Berlin By Novelstyle

Hello Everyone. Today  Novelstyle filling in for me .While I'm away having some fun in Berlin.  She here to share some of the fun place she visited in Berlin. Make sure you go stop by her and say hi. 

Berlin is definitely one of my favorite european cities! In case you are wondering, only London, Heidelberg and Reykjavík come before it ☺  And Amy is super lucky to be able to go there to celebrate her Anniversary! Bet it will be an amazing trip ^^

Even though I’ve been three times to Berlin, I have not been able to do many touristic things, as two times it was for Fashion Week and the other one was a weekend trip to this is my perfect day in berlin:

Where to stay?
My picks are The Weinmeister or Lux 11

 photo The-Weinmeister-7_zpsce74ffa3.jpg
 photo Lux11DeluxeRoom_zps50fae7c5.jpeg
Lux 11

Both hotels are beautiful, comfortable… and are located in Berlin Mitte! Perfect location for shopping… there is even a Primark just a few blocks away!

Where to go for breakfast?
I totally recommend Type/Hype! It’s super original and has the yummiest hot chocolate I have ever had! Also, their orange jam is handmade and a must when enjoying a croissant over there! (Pardon my face, we were there for breakfast!)

 photo IMG_9180_1_zpsa1060c8a.jpg
Best places to visit in Berlin?
I personally love the Sony Centre in Potsdamer Platz… it is perfect to walk around, go for lunch to Pizza Hut and shop at TK Maxx!

The zoo is also beautiful! I love the elephants at the entrance
 photo fashion-blogger-berlin_zps684ed802.jpg

And of course, you have to visit the Brandenburger Tur, the wall and checkpoint Charlie!
 photo IMG_8553_1_zpsae238362.jpg

 photo IMG_9335_1_zps74d17cef.jpg

Where to go for dinner?
After a long day walking around Berlin, there is nothing better than some delicious food at Prince! A beautiful restaurant with the yummiest food! My recommendation is Mr Popeye… a dish with rice, spinach and fried chicken! And for dessert they have an amazing pear pie ☺
 photo IMG_8701_1_zpsc526d08f.jpg

And that’s my perfect day in Berlin! ☺ Gladly, I always have a free day to do all this…the other ones are mostly like this:
Can’t wait to see Amy’s pics from her amazing trip to Berlin!
