my favourite things linkup

My Favourite Things is a monthly linkup hosted by Raisa and Eirene. Head over there to participate!

I had 4 weeks off from work this past month, and most of it was spent travelling. First to visit my mum, then to Markus’ parents, to Scotland, back to my mum… Last Monday I started working again and honestly it feels pretty good. It’s nice to take a break but it’s also nice to have some order and routine back in my life. πŸ™‚

TV: Derek

Ricky Gervais plays an autistic/intellectually challenged/something else (they never say and I’m not educated enough to guess) man working at a nursery home. The plot mostly revolves around the daily life at the home, with all the challenges and rewards that comes with being slightly different and working with the elderly.

Sounds kinda boring, right? Yeah, it’s not much action going on, but it’s so incredibly sweet and funny! Very cheesy and sentimental too, but I don’t mind that.

This show gives me the warm fuzzies and a desire to be good and do good. Can definitely recommend to anyone who is feeling stressed out or angry at the world.

Gaming: this video by my Guild Wars 2 guild

I’m an avid player of the MMORPG Guild Wars 2 and spend way more time in there than I think I should. I’m part of a lovely all-female guild* and we recently completed a rather ambitious dancing video!
It was great fun, and the video turned out better than I imagined. The lady who put it all together is a genius when it comes to editing and picking music.

*If you’re 1) a GW2 player, 2) identify as female and 3) on an EU server you should search for “GW2 Girls EU” on Facebook and join us!

Style: the Minnie Mouse shoes

Imaginary Karin - red polka dot shoes

Are these adorable or what!? Very rockabilly, very Minnie Mouse, and very much me!

I found them in Edinburgh and couldn’t resist. They were already on sale, but the shop assistant gave me another 10% off because I was hesitating. Guess he just really wanted to sell them, haha!
If you want your own pair the brand is T.U.K.

Now I just need a party to wear them to, but I’m sure something will come up. If nothing else I’ll wear them to the office and be the fanciest and most overdressed person there. ^_^
