Hello Fresh Box / special food post !

Hello everyone ~
It’s been quite a while but I definitely have to tell you about a great food box I have stumbled upon and ordered for two weeks .
The food box from
HELLO FRESH !
is mostly organic food for 3 or 5 meals per box for two persons and you get to experience a great variety of dishes (even vegetarian ! ) <3
The box comes like this : fully packed with fresh vegetables, cooled food ( they use recycled wool and cooling packages to make sure the food arrives in top quality )  and other food .
Here are my favorites among the dishes :
This is pide bread with a feta-pepperbell-onion filling and hummus ( so easy to prepare ! )
This one is my TOP FAVORIT :

Orzo ( noodle in rice shape ) mushroom risotto garnered with prosciutto stripes and a simple tomato salad
This one I definitely have to recook soon :
Tarte Flambee ( german: Flammenkuchen ) with brussels sprout , onion , cheese and an simple salad with apples slices .
This dish was great but I doubt that I would cook it again . I rarely eat pig :P
Pig medaillons with a cremé fraiche onion sauce , oven potatoes and salsify ( never heard of this vegetable before . . . never seen it before . . . it’s a weird black vegetable :P But it was really yummy ! )
Korma Curry with chicken breast and Basmati rice ( I love this rice ! )
I love curry and I have tasted a lot of curries , yet this was new to me – the Korma powder is really different !
That’s it ~
I hope you liked the post !
The price for a box is quite expensive compared to normal dishes but I think it is definitely worth it and it saves a WHOLE LOT OF TIME you would usually spend with grocery shopping !
Lots ‘n’ lots of love ~

Red Roses , White Sheets & Black Dress / Sneak Peaks at a Photoshooting

Hey everyone ~
It’s been a while since my last blog post but I’ll make sure it was worth the wait as I present you the
Sneak Peaks at a Photoshooting 
 
!
I hope you like it ~
I got the idea for the shooting just few days before while I was shopping and discovered those lovely fake rose petals for 1€ per pack ! I wasn’t that sure of using them for the shooting, yet I had to buy haha <3
Yes, this is a homeshooting and this is my bed – and yes, the bedsheet has a weird hole XD ( Look for it, if you haven’t found haha )
Mr White is lying there like some american beauty covered with red rose petals – isn’t he awesome ??Now here is another small sneak peak – at the results ;D
My legs look quite long from this angle and with those lovely black T-strip plateau shoes <3 I love these shoes and I barely get to wear them . . . First I wanted to do the shooting barefoot but it looked weird somehow . . . So I spontaneously decided on wearing these shoes and they make a great match with my dress !
Now to show you a photo which will not be featured ( because it has no rose theme ) but looks pretty much like the chosen results :
Somehow I look like a small child in this photo . . . thanks to the lollipop ( which is super yummy ! ) and Mr White <3I simply LOVE great contrast photos like these which uses black and white and a strong color ~
I came up with the idea of using these colors by being a huge huge fan and being inspired by HYUNA ! !
She is my idol ! 
I have come to like her ever since RED came out – great song and overly awesome music video !
That’s it for today <3
If you wish to see more results of the photoshoot , please be patient – I will post them soon enough ~

lots ‘n’ lots of love ~

Two days in Hamburg / my self-hosted sightseeing tour / HafenCity University !

Hey lovelies <3
It’s been almost two weeks since I have visited
Hamburg !

Of course, I took lots n lots of photos to show you :) All the photos except the first one in the bus are made in one day or rather in 6 hours :D Guess I’ve been wandering around a lot in those 6 hours . . .
This is the omnibus I took from Cologne to Hamburg – 6 hours long . . . thank god there was free WIFI plus I was sitting right next to a power plug :D ! And I had a bunch of new anime on my iPad to watch haha <3
This is the main train station in Hamburg from street view . . . doesn’t appear as big as when you are inside . . .
. . . inside the train station appears gigantic . . . no pillars in the middle !
This is the German theatre play museum
I saw this red house in the city and noticed that the vietnamese restaurant in the bottom two levels looks really good . . . the restaurant was really crowded ! The other house caught my eye while I was passing by . . . not sure what is inside though :x
This is the town hall of Hamburg ! It really looks great and I love these turquoise roofs on old buildings . . .The big public square in front of it made it look even more intimidating ~ Though nothing compares to the Cathedral in Cologne or in Brussels !
The “Alsterarkaden” (oldest shopping arcade in Hamburg) with a reminiscence of the canals in Venice <3
Two spots I found – once again not knowing what they are ut they just popped into my eye . . . the first photo is a very fine and exclusive looking small shopping arcade .
The famous metro station at the “HafenCity Universität” – Hamburg new university .

But the view above is even greater . . .

SRSLY . This looks just like a rendering from an architect . . . I sent this to some of my friends and they actually asked me , who that architects is to make this great a rendering haha . . .

Just being in front of it made me all jelly . . . I would love to study here ! Not even knowing what is inside . . . but inside is even more . . . ! I didn’t want to take any photos inside , all the people / students there watched me XD !
I left the harbor city to find this : the Chile House .
But . . .  somehow I got to the harbor city again by walking around aimlessly .
This is the harbor city part with the overly expensive flats and offices . In the background the not-yet-ready Elbphilharmonie .
Lunch time !

People are asking when the Elbphilharmonie is finalized . Every day it costs the city thousands of € . They say that the money estimated to be needed for the whole process has been exceeded a long time ago . . . !
My opinion on this “master piece” : not worth the money . It may look great ( I don’t think so ) and it may look extraordinary in the context there , but taking so much time is surely not what the people in Hamburg want .
Approaching the St. Michaelis church .
The St. Michaelis church is a baroque church that has been renewed inside .

Somehow I just can’t help but love baroque churches . . . so much detail and so much effort put inside them . . .  I am not christian , but churches are interesting buildings to me ~

Especially gothic and baroque style !So  that’s it ! I will surely visit Hamburg again ! I think it’s a really really beautiful city . . .  I am even thinking of doing my master there . . . just a thought – after all there is still a lot of time left :)

Hope you liked my sightseeing post ~

lots ‘n’ lots of love ~

self made sushi level up / fine dining

Hey foodlovers !
If you have always loved sushi plus you’ve been keen to make you own sushi – and maybe tried a few times already ? – I want to show you in this very short food post how easy it is to make sushi you will just love because
1 – it looks like a master piece
2 – it’s so much fun making it
3 – you can be creative <3
4 – it’s made with so much effort and love !
I’m not saying or even claiming that I am a sushi chef or anything similar – no such thing at all on that professional level . Nevertheless it is not that hard to make a sushi that you yourself will enjoy to you fullest I think :)I have tried making sushi myself for several times now and someday it seemed to me , that it always looked and tasted . . . the same .

Sure was yummy ( maybe because I’ve starved myself with yet another 2-3 hours preperation time ? ) but it just simply always looked the same haha ~
So for the first time I wanted my sushi look a lot better because you also eat with your eye , don’t you ?I prepared the fillings of the sushi rolls in the following – spent a little bit more money than I would usually in higher quality products haha . . . don’t expect anything too fancy from a nearly broke student !

This is smoked salmon maki with a rucola leaf upgrade ~
in the center : wrapped salmon tartar with spring onion and rucola nigiri
After posting this I have this urge to repeat this dinner very very soon !
Sorry for not posting anything for the last weeks . . . but I’ll make sure to change it starting now :)
Semester has started and once again I’ll start posting some more about my architecture studies , the projects , some more OOTDs ( even when it’s getting colder . . . ) and maybe some more reviews ? Let’s see ~
lots ‘n’ lots of love ~

4-course vegan dinner ! / Step by step recipe Misotofu 3 / Matcha Sagopudding

Hey everyone ~
This time I’m going to blog about a
4-course vegan dinner for 4 people !
 
In my one-week vegan challenge I had lots of time and because I really reaaaally love cooking I even decided to cook for some of my friends :3 Once in a while we do this ” Perfect Dinner ” , where one cooks for the others .
It was so much fun thinking of what I could cook and which ingredients to use ~ 
The vegan challenge made me think really creatively because I didn’t want to spend a lot yet I wanted to cook something new to everyone :D
So let me present you my courses :
1st course – soup – Tomato Avocado Coconut Créme
As garnish I used fried sesame and fried tofu dices ( as croutons-alternative )
I also used the fried tofu dices for the next dish :
2nd course – classic salad with coconut-milk balsamico sauce 
 
Next is :
 
3rd course – maincourse – Misotofu with rice and pak choi
It may look very plain , but the taste of the Misotofu shouldn’t be underestimated !
It’s very easy to make , so I thought I could share my recipe with you ~
Misotofu
 
What you need for 4 people :
2 fresh Korean tofu ( cut into 1,5-2cm slices )
2-3 tablespoons miso paste
1 tablespoon light soy sauce
1/3 teaspoon sesame oil
1 tablespoon Hoisin Sauce
2 spring onions ( cut into thin rings )
Here’s a short step-by-step of how to make the Misotofu :
1 – Make the Paste by mixing all the ingredients ( except the spring onions and the tofu ! )
2 – Spread half of the paste onto a plate about 3-5mm thick and put the tofu slices on top of it .
Then Spread the rest of the paste onto the tofu slices .
3 – Spread the spring onion rings over the tofu .
4 – Let the dish rest for minimum 1 hour and cover it with aluminium foil ( it doesn’t stick onto the tofu like plastic wrap would ) .
5 – Carefully fry the tofu in a pan with medium heat for about 7-9 minutes on each side .
DONE !
The last course may look a bit weird to you , but rest assured – the green coloring comes from a vry healthy ingredient :
4th course – dessert – Matcha Sagopudding
 
For this dessert I simply cooked small sagopearls with soymilk and addes some matcha powder .
The very decent sweetness of the soymilk makes the Sagopudding very light and refreshing .
I paired the Sagopudding with a very sweet sauce ( coconut-milk + maple syrup ) .
I definitely have to make the Matcha Sagopudding again . . . it’s soooo yummy and doesn’t contain much calories plus I loooovey Matcha ( very healthy stuff ~ ) !
lots ‘n’ lots of love ~
