The February Book Roundup

At long last I have finished the Harry Dresden series. Hold the applause. Fifteen books and a few month later – it feels like an utter journey of a series. Now that I’m at it end, however, I’m kind of sad it’s over. I grew to love Murphy, Harry, Butters and all of the crazy…

Amongst Polls and Whinging

If I had to choose one thing I’ve been absolutely horrible about lately (and if I only had to choose one), it would have to be blogging. I can give the classic “I’ve been traveling” excuse. I’m sure I could also think of a thousand or a million reasons why I haven’t updated Positively Gabriella…

What’s on my TBR?

In lieu of my book review this week, I’m going to tell you a bit about the books I’ve downloaded onto my Kindle for prime reading activity. In case you’re wondering… I’ve read no books this past weeks. Lather on the shame (actually don’t – I’ve just been insanely busy). Below are all the books…

Transatlantic Reads

I’m coming home for Thanksgiving! Can you believe it? Hours and hours of plane travel paired with potentially a lack of water and an excess of reading material and turkey… both mildly concerning and exciting all at once. In excuse for this upcoming deluge of books and reviews, I didn’t read anything last week. Pause…

Three Books of the Week

In case it hasn’t sunk in yet, I’ve been an absolute menace lately when it comes to getting my reading in. It’s probably the weather, or sudden abundance of friends – but as I pointed out last week – I have not been *ahem* up to my normal reading standards. I have been trying to…

Spring is finally on the way!

Perhaps it’s because Sunday’s weather finally broke the barrier of 70 degrees Fahrenheit, but as I’m reflecting back on my week- I can’t help but feel a deep sense of satisfaction. Earlier yesterday, I dropped off a friend by the bus station. My thoughts, as you can imagine, are mostly focused on what a fun…

Weekends in London

Remember how last week I was in my vibe of comfort and routine? That was definitely not last weekend. Sure I went to the gym and I slightly increased my attendance in yoga. But things changed as the end of last week rounded the corner. Not only did I realize I should be tossing my…

November Favorites

This is the first of what (I’m hoping) will be a monthly roundup of my favorite everything! I’m going to start simple with some quick clothing picks and then to the most important thing… books. This whole post is inspired by Rebecca, because I read her favorites post… and I really liked it. (Check it…

The Family Comes to Deutschland

As is evident by the title, some of my family came to Berlin this past week to visit for Thanksgiving and in doing so – made me late in posting my usual Sunday weekly overview (Apologies!). Crazily, the six of us did more sightseeing in Berlin than I’ve done in the last two months… quite…
