And So It Begins – Festive Fun With Friends

Posted: 30/11/2017 by mariesophieblog

If there is something about me everyone should know it’s that I absolutely love Christmas! Come mid November I turn in to a festive elf who wants to spread the Christmas spirit and make every one feel as festive as possible. So I thought it would only be right to kick this years festivities off with a visit to one of my local Christmas markets to drink my first Glühwein and eat loads of festive food! I also took my camera with me to film some bits and pieces to give you the ultimate experience. I hope you like the…

Day In The Life: Hiking at Heimgarten

Posted: 21/11/2017

Every since I moved to Munich and got to see the beautiful scenery that it has to offer – especially outside of the city – hiking has become one of my favorite hobbies. I just love to get out into the mountains, walk up the hiking trails and witness the beautiful views mother nature has to offer. Don’t get me wrong, I wasn’t always like this. Only a few months ago a question like do you want to go on a six-hour hike today? would have me laughing out loud. I was such an indoor person and totally happy with only…

Self Love: You Are More Beautiful Than You Think

Posted: 13/10/2017

A few weeks ago I stumbled upon a video from the Dove YouTube Channel all about self love and self acceptance and instantly wanted to share it with you guys. In the video they asked multiple women to sit with a forensic artist and describe their face. The artist took his time and drew the women based on what they described. Then they asked strangers, who just met these women for the first time, to describe what they saw. And what they saw was completely different from what the women described. After the sketch was finished they hung them up…

Mental Health: The Social Stigma

Posted: 26/05/2017

After last weeks’ post about my thoughts on 13 Reasons Why (click HERE to read) and the great response I got from you guys on social media, I wanted to take the time and dig a little deeper. Mental health is something very close to my heart, not just because I’ve been dealing with this most of my life but also I’ve seen a few family members and friends struggling with this. I think it’s very sad that mental health problems are still such a tabu topic in our society, even though so many people suffer from it.

Adulting #3: Mastering Job Interviews

Posted: 19/05/2017

Once you’ve successfully written loads of job applications and one of them got a positive response (well done you!) it’s time to prepare for the next step – the job interviews. Which is why today I’ve decided to write down a few of my tips regarding this topic. Now clearly every job interview is different but there are a few things that you can keep in mind in order to feel confident. So here goes:

13 Reasons Why & My View On Suicide

Posted: 04/05/2017

If you’ve been around social media and Netflix during the past month you’ve probably heard about 13 Reasons Why and the controversy surrounding it. In case you haven’t heard of it, let me just fill you in (spoiler alert!): 13 Reasons Why is the story about the high school student Hannah Baker who was driven to committing suicide due to a series of different reasons. Befor her death, she records thirteen different audio tapes explaining the whole story of why she committed suicide. She reveals every secret, every incident she experienced and calls out all the people who had something…

Five Perfect Ways To Relax

Posted: 31/03/2017

Who doesn’t know the feeling when you are ready to go to sleep but once you are actually in bed you just can’t switch off. Or when you get home on a Friday afternoon, ready for the weekend, but you just can’t stop thinking about work? It’s just the worst, isn’t it?! After dealing with these problems for quite a while now I realized that giving yourself some me time before you go to bed or even to welcome the weekend is super important. Obviously you can’t just expect your brain to immediately switch off after you’ve looked at twenty…

Adulting #2: Mastering Job Applications

Posted: 24/03/2017

When it comes to finding a job, writing tons and tones of applications is something that cannot be avoided. And even though you might be super excited to give your dream job a try, you have to admit, the application process can be quite challenging. We’ve all been there. Sometimes you send out hundreds of applications and receive tons of denials or no response at all. Over the years I had my fair share of application processes and even though I’ve gotten quite lucky sometimes, I am still just as nervous. But I feel like somehow I’ve found a way…

Edgy Bar Cart

Edgy Bar Cart

Posted: 14/03/2017

Ever since I moved out of my parents’ house into my own I wanted to have something similar to a bar in my living room. It’s not that I drink so much that I would use it on a regular basis, but I always liked the look that it gives and it seemed so useful. So as soon as I moved out I went on Pinterest and tried to find some inspiration. However the bar carts that I found on there always seemed very white and girly. And even though I like the minimal and white look for places like…
