Re 2.0 - A part of me is moving

Yeeeahhh.... so you know I changed the main topic of this blog like 1 1/2 years ago, but still I'm struggling everytime I have a topic in mind that is totally not art or nerd related and I often end up posting nothing, because I don't want to annoy you guys with stuff you're not interested in. That's why I now created another blog with another topic (like more fashion and/or lifestyle related) and no (made up or real) expectations from anyone. Don't be afraid or happy, I WILL NOT CLOSE THIS BLOG. I will just keep more personal things and so away from here.
If you want to read these other things of me I happily invite you to come over to http://milkyheaven.wordpress.com

Dat App - 13 + Kawaii Apps

flyer1


I'm like Christopher Columbus. I discovered something, millions of people knew about before me.
High five to everyone who got the Simpsons reference.
I recently got an iPhone thanks to my big bro (I wanted to say Onii-Chan, but specific people will google it and the search results are...well...wrong. Please don't google it. Please.) Well, thank you again bro. I had a smartphone before, but it had neither IOS nor Android, so I couldn't use common apps. So now that I dug into the whole app-thing, I thought about sharing some kawaii stuff, I'm addicted to. All of them are free by the way, because I'm a scrooge.

1. Purikura Apps
There's a whole friggin bunch of Purikura Apps out there. Really. Just search for Purikura in the App Store and you'll get smashed. I tested a few and got stuck with the following: Rakuga Cute, DecoBlend, Decopic and Snapeee
All of them have similar functions and stuff and the stamps are more or less the same. Some are kinda different, but all have the standard kirakira kakkoii stuff you're all looking for (I know you do).

+ Rakuga Cute The first one I knew and a good one. Nothing more to say.
+ DecoBlend has a nice additional function to create little collages. Also it's my favourite so far as it has some nice sketchy stamps. The left sample below is made with DecoBlend.
+ Decopic offers some preinstalled templates. So if you're lazy or don't want to go through all stamps, you just need to click once and bam - purikura.
+ Snapeee has some really nice stamps and filters (some of my favourites), but I haven't figured out yet, how to just save your pictures without posting them to the Snapeee community (is it even possible? I don't know)

2. Totty
Totty is the creator of some very nice entertaining games, I won't mention all of them (there are too many). Just search for Totty.
As far as I remember, I came across Totty through Alpaca Niisan, so I just count it in.

+ Alpaca Niisan One of the most popular games in the strange japanese wtf games section. It's starts very cute with some alpacas doing their alpaca business on a nice green meadow. You play one of the alpacas and it's your assignment to slay all the other alpacas just to, like, absorb them. Doing that then makes you stronger and creepier. You shouldn't play it before sleeping. Trust me.
+ う~にゃ~!!!(U~Nya~!!!) One of the cutest things of all things in the history of things. Especially the sound. It's about jumping over boxes with a kitten. And everytime you do it, it says U~ NYA! I can't play it without freaking out about the cute sounds. Also cats in cute costumes are a big plus.
+ ねこ ズサー (Neko Zusa?) Another cat game about jumping into a box and slide as far as possible.
+ (The game with the title, I can't read bc of the kanji) If you ever wanted to flip sunbathing pigs, this is your chance.

3. Naver
Besides its well known social app Line, Naver offers some nice other programs.

+ Line play Does someone remember Selfy or Tinier Me? Well, Line Play has a similar style, and function. Chat, an avatar to dress up, a room to decorate and a diary. Definitely worth the download.
+ Line Brush I haven't tested other drawing apps so far, but I'm sure this is one of the better. You have a well-resourced toolbox filled with brushes and pens. Unfortunately it has no layer option and drawing with a finger is pretty hard.
+ Neko Copter I wonder if this game was inspired by this cat, what explains pretty much, what this game is about. A flying cat. When you're good at it, you earn costumes and stuff.

4. Happy Street
OMG I love this game. It's probably my favourite app of all apps. In this Animal Crossing-like game you build up a street with shops and houses and craft things. Other than the abovementioned games, this one is a long time activity. Also note the humor. Hairstyles like Mr. T, Princess Leia and Link? Yes please!

5. Magic Tree
I just mention this because it has a professional, cute moeblob style, which I really adore. It's a farm game and unfortunately sometimes a little bit too sugar-sweet and not that addictive to me. But maybe you'll love it. The same company has made an MMORPG called The World of Magic, but I don't get it, bc the tutorial was too short, or i got kicked out. Like, suddenly I was in a town and didn't know what to do.

So that's it so far. Not that I don't have any others to mention, but I don't want to overdo it. If you have other cute apps, I should know, please comment. Kthxbye.

Tourist stuff from my hometown

Today I had to go to the city center of Bremen to pick up a letter at the post office, which is about ten minutes to walk from my house. And since I wanted to take some tourist-like pictures of Bremen anyway for some time, I took my camera with me. And I really felt like a tourist today lol. It was fun though ( ´ ∀`)ノ

flyer1
The "kleine Weser" (little Weser) about two minutes from my home (・ ω ・)♡

flyer1
One of formerly four Lionheads at the Weser (the big one lol). Two of them were found in 1998, the other two are lost since the bridge they were attached to was blown up in 1945.

flyer1
A small alley at the Schnoor, a pretty cute district, where all alleys are only like one or two metres broad (seriously)

flyer1
The famous Bremen Town Musicians by Gerhard Marcks. Most tourists are a little bit disappointed, when they see them, because they're rather unimpressive. But still everyone wants to touch them (it's said, that it brings luck to touch the donkeys legs) and so it's not that easy to take a picture without a tourist on it.

flyer1
The "Lichtbringer" by Bernhard Hoetger above the entrance to the Böttcherstraße. Actually it represents "the victory of the Führer over the powers of darkness" So... yeah, it's some kind of nazi-stuff. But it's still pretty /D

DIY Lip Scrub

flyer1

I normally have an annoying flaky lips problem, which makes me avoid wearing lipsticks. But I love lipsticks, so I made this lip scrub, which helps a lot. I did some research before, but I ended up with the information that you can almost use whatever you want. The only necessary ingredients are sugar and oil (optimally olive or almond oil - they're good for skin treatment). So here's what I used:

▫ 5 TSP. SUGAR
▫ 1 TSP. HONEY
▫ 2 TSP. ALMOND OIL
▫ 3 DRP. ORANGE FLAVOUR
▫ SOME FOOD DYE

(TSP = Teaspoons, DRP = Drops)

I use it 2-3 times a week. And now my lips look almost as luscious as LSPs dream lips ( ˘ ³˘)♥

Too much Berlin...

...too little time.
We just came back from a five-day-trip to Berlin. I planned a bunch of things to do in advance, but I didn't even came to do half of it because Berlin is way too big, to explore it in five days. But therefore i did much other things. And I bought so much stuff! OMG!

When we had a breakfast at a restaurant (I don't remember the name or place lol), there were so many sparrows lurking for some bread crumbs and when I was stuffed, I still had some bread left, so I started to feed them and soon there were about 30 or 40 sparrows around us. It was so damn cute, I'm still happy about it. The other day another sparrow walked into a Subway restaurant like a baws... I guess Berlins sparrows don't give fucks... And so do the people about traffic. It seems like everyone just walks across the street whether the traffic lights are green or red and cyclists just cycle through every crowd, even in the shopping boulevards and so their speed is usally about 1 mph or so...

Since there's no german city that is more high-fashioned than Berlin, of course my main plan was shopping. Especially second-hand and vintage. On sunday, we attended one of the coolest flea-markets I've ever seen - the so called Flowmarkt (a pun of the german word Flohmarkt /D). It was full of awesome second-hand and self-made stuff and art. Also you didn't have to get up in the morning for it, because it's open from 10 am to 6 pm. That's pretty nice. Anyway, Berlin is kind of a second-hand-paradise. While Bremen's second-hand shops have mostly mother-and-kids-stuff or things I don't want, Berlin is full of the most epic shops and stores, where you can find really good-looking clothes and vintage fashion. My favourite so far is "colours" in Berlin-Kreuzberg. I spent more than an hour there. The cool thing about it is, that they have a section, where you pay only 17,99 € per kg. So I got a cute seventies dress for only 1,87 € (or maybe it's a nightgown - I'm still not sure about that...). And they have a happy hour on tuesday, where you get 30 % off your whole purchase!

Aaand naturally I also did some sight-seeing and culture-things. Like visiting the Brandenburg Gate, the Reichstag, the Holocaust Monument, the Fernsehturm and so on.
What you really should do, if you're in Berlin is to attend an guided underground tour. They have several tours to choose from and we made one to a bunker under a subway-station, which was pretty oppressive and interesting.
So, enough talking. Look at dem pictures.
