Here comes the sun

Here comes the sun doo doo doo doo  - here comes the sun and I say it's alright!

Stress. Yes, that's what defined my last week. On my agenda: A lot of classes, a workshop, sports, two business meetings, friends, party, a concert, a presentation.... I had a bunch to organize and to participate in, so I really needed this weekend. A weekend to relax and to calm down.
And to study.
And to read.
And to cook.
And there will be another day off on Tuesday. Yippieh!

Oh, I still owe you an image from my cousin's birthday...

 ... and an outfit with my new cardigan ...

For tonight I plan to go bowling with friends and afterwards we will cook together a Chinese meal (Chicken, vegetables and noodles). Bon appetit!

P.S. Next weekend I will only give a short statement as I am on a sports tournament for my university. There will also be a party where we all dress as Jack Sparrow. I'll post my Jack-Sparrow-Version next week!Please check out:!/WHUEuromasters / Go on "Pre-Spirit-Competition" on the left side and vote then for ESB Business School REUTLINGEN University. We have to win!

Enjoy your Sunday and have a nice upcoming week!

Running Dinner

Good morning!
Actually I've already posted something this morning via my mobile, but apparently there were some issues. So, I'm sitting at my cousin's as we celebrated her 18th birthday yesterday. Normally I posted a photo of the club we went to, but my app doesn't work properly. My cousin was really excited before and began counting down half a year ago. So sweet!
This week's event was Running Dinner: We had teams of two people (my partner was a French girl) and we were supposed to cook one course, either starter, main or dessert. We had the last one and made an original French Mousse Au Chocolat (with 6 eggs!!!). Before we went to the student's house to enjoy some tapas as starter and some wraps as main course and afterwards all teams met in the city and spent some time in the bars there. It was a really nice night out, with new people and good food! Must be done again!
I also did some shopping last week in the Metzingen Outlet where I bought a dark red Polo Ralph Lauren cardigan, 70% off. I like! Maybe I will post an outfit next week, because the cardigan fits perfectly to the current fall weather!
Right now I am a little nervous because I have just changed my travelling plans for today. My train actually leaves in half an hour but I now got informed that my uncle will come later and wanted to go to have some lunch with my cousins AND me. Okay... in Switzerland this change wouldn't be a problem but in Germany you cannot change trains as you want. So I hope that my ticket is still valid in three hours. If the Deutsche Bahn creates a problem, I will present myself as unknown French girl ;) Wish me luck!
Enjoy the weather, have fun, don't stress yourself, please comment my blog and visit me next week!

Hike + Spicy Fruit Mix with Chicken

Hey guys! I do not forget you. But I am on a hike right now, there will be a little update at about 2pm.

See you thenPublished with Blogger-droid v1.7.4

This is a "Spicy Fruit Mix with Chicken" which I had at a friend's on friday. Find the recipe below:
Ingredients (4 portions):
500 g chicken
1 mango
1 pineapple
2 peaches
400 g rice (best is Basmati)
2 eggs
honey, soja sauce, butter, chili, pepper, salt, individual spices
Curry Mango sauce (or mix it yourself: curry, 1 pot of cream)
Cut the chicken and pickle it into a mix of some soja sauce and the eggs' whites (for about 30 minutes). While roasting the chicken in a pan, cut the fruits into pieces. Set some water for the rice and let it boil for the given time on the packing. When the chicken is slightly brown, put it on an extra plate in the oven. Now you wave the fruits with some chili, pepper, salt and honey in the same pan (you can add the spices you like). When some fruits begin to have a brown glaced surface, you can mix it with the chicken. Last but not least, take the rice out and give some spoons of the Mango Curry Sauce on top of it. Serve and enjoy!

So, we had dinner on friday night, but also on thursday and saturday nigth I went out to eat elsewhere. No, cooking wasn't my priority last week, but in the next days we have a so called "Running Dinner" which I explain to you next sunday. Cross the fingers that my experiments in the kitchen work out!

Most of the time I spent in university, we have a few things to organize there, but I still like the tensions resulting from stress. I kind of need it. But I also overslept math class on friday because my alarm didn't ring - this is a proper excuse!

On the toilet in our flatshare there is a women's magazine called "Joy" and in there I found my way to style (according to their points): Apparently I am a preppy girl, wearing classical and sporty fashion. Actually, I wasn't that surprised as I have the following two fashion idols:

 Alexa Chung
Audrey Hepburn

Their way of wearing clothes is simple, but always with an attitude. So, get out your trench coats, your chinos, your hooped shirts, your blouses and your cardigans - It's time for style!

Enough for today, I see you next week!

Monday morning?

I admit that I am the worst blogger in the world wide web! I am so sorry!
I call my blog "C'est le dimanche matin" so that I blog something every sunday morning. And here I find myself sitting in front of my computer on a monday morning! Next week - I promise - I'll be here on the right day!

So, best event this week: The Wasen in Stuttgart! It's like the Oktoberfest but much smaller and it was the first time, that I went to such an event - I liked it! A lot of beer and a lot of music, but it was so much fun! Of course I also did some rides on the roller coaster, although the last ride made my stomach turn... No worries, I only had 2 "Mass" beer mixed with lemonade, so I felt fine!

The rest of the week was quite calm as we had a lot of work to do... I still don't understand economics. Let's cross fingers that I understand it in the exams!

Last friday I tried Badminton in our university, just to keep me fit while studying. There were mainly Chinese and French fellows, a funny mixture of international people. That is also why I'll go there today for another time!

So far, I really like my "new life" here. For now the two parts - party and studying - are balanced, although I probably will get more and more work on the study-side. Not only because of the classes' contents but also because I'm part of two ressorts (music and alumni) which organize different events during the semestre.

See you next week on the right day!

Home Sweet Home

As the title already indicates it: I am at my parents' in Geneva for a long weekend. It's a bit little strange to be at home as guest but I will get used to it, I suppose.

View from my kitchen window at dusk.

Last week's wheather was phenomenal, we had sunshine every day - the lost summer has its comeback in september now. Honestly, I don't want these warm temperatures anymore. I am ready for autumn and winter where I can sit in my bed reading books, listening to the Harry Potter soundtrack and drinking tea. But accoording to the wheather forecast, I have to "suffer" another week.
University is still great, last week we began with the real classes and I am glad, that I am a lot interested in all topics - Marketing, Economics, Management, Organizational Behavior, ... Yes, I even read some further literature during my trip to Geneva (It took about 7 hours, whereas I now saw that taking a plane only takes 3h 40 although I've to change once. But price is the same which means that I will take the plane next time!).
Also this week we had a lot of parties which is not the best when you must get up early the next morning and try to understand some mathematical formula. But hey, it's university life, isn't it?
On of the highlights was the soccer try out for the women's soccer team in our university which will be prepared for a European University Cup (called Euromasters, WHU). And guess it! I'm in it and so we are going there in the beginning of november. 
Another hike expects me today, this time in the French alps. Tomorrow I head back to Reutlingen to continue my studies. I want to learn, how crazy can life be?
Enjoy the weather and have a nice week ;)
