September Summary

September is over! Autumn is started, you can buy everything you need for Christmas in the shops already and before we know it, the year will be over and it’s time for 2015.

The month started with reviewing the London Ghost Bus Tour and dinner at Inamo. It was a goodbye dinner, my friend Nina left England for good to start her degree in Germany. I also bought myself a Breville Blend Active Personal Blender, that I reviewed and use regularly. It’s fantastic.

My trip to Istanbul

I travelled to Istanbul on the 8th of September to join my family in Istanbul. Of course I blogged about it a lot too. I basically fell in love with the city, even though I wasn’t particularly feeling well. I took so many pictures and still haven’t sorted through all of them. Starting at Frankfurt airport, I was very eager to finally board the plane, but the flight was delayed by nearly two hours. A storm in Turkey caused delays, my aunt’s flight from Zurich was delayed too. It wasn’t great to wait two hours at the gates after the security check in without drinks and screaming children. It was hot and I was so glad, when we could finally board to plane. A few days later I could share my First Impressions of Istanbul with you. On my first day we took the ferry from Kadıköy to Eminönü – continent hopping at its best. My first major sightseeing attractions were the Sultan Ahmed Mosque and the Hagia Sophie. I also took some pictures of the Sultanahmet Square and the German Fountain. After visiting the two mosques, we walked through Gülhane Park and visited Taksim Square. What should have been my best day in Istanbul, was actually my worst. I felt depressed and felt like bursting out in tears everywhere. On my second day we made a Bosphorus Tour and on my third day we took the ferry the from Kadıköy to Beşiktaş. The Beşiktaş is so beautiful and it was my favourite in Istanbul.

Oh, I finally have new business cards my first giveaway and I entered the Great Summer Bake of Challenge. It would mean a lot and more if you would vote for my Slutty Brownie recipe. I reviewed the Stein’s in Kingston, had dinner and a reunion with an old friend at Gaucho and I am getting finally another Brazilian Blowdry on Friday.

Not to forget my autumn H&M wishlist and Beth’s guest blog on Autumn makeup essentials.
