Disney World

Good Morning/Evening/Afternoon

So I ended up at Disney last weekend. It was a family trip (a family friend’s daughter celebrated her birthday) and I spent 2 magical days at Magic Kingdom and Hollywood Studios. It has been a few years since my last Disney trip and let me tell you….Magic Kingdom was PACKED. I have seriously never seen so many people in an amusement park before.

I have been to Disney more times than I can count and I do not remember it being so crowded… Hour long lines just to meet Jasmine :p Unfortunately I did not get any pictures with Mickey but it was still beautiful and worth it. The weather (aside from not packing a proper jacket) was beautiful and there were seriously not that many clouds in the sky…. The sun was shining like a diamond!

I am so happy that I was able to go back to Disney and relive my childhood and I am so thankful my mom made it all possible 😉 … Sometimes it’s really good for you to be a kid again 😀 I hope it’s not freezing in Germany anymore! I promise I am sending a bunch of  sun!!! *If you are planning a Florida/Disney trip anytime soon please be sure to do everything in advance* There are certain rides/restaurants that are sold out for reservations and fast passes for at least a year -_-

Florida 2018

Hey y’all!

I am a little behind with everything but I have finally gotten settled in and have time to do my social media stuff. Florida is awesome y’all (right now there is a “cold front” and we can’t really go to the beach) but we are still enjoying our time. I have been eating too much… As was expected but I hope to start working out sometime this week. Tonight I am going shooting and will kick everyones butt in target practice.

I spent the first couple of days in Naples with a wonderful 23 degrees and clear skies….It’s currently season in Florida so there are a bunch of Germans here and people from up north. I feel like I’m back in Munich with sunshine :p

 

Love y’all ❤

I have arrived

Hey everyone,

I have made it to Florida!!! It was one of the longest travel times of my life but that is ok. I don’t know what happened when I booked the flight (I could have sworn I picked the flight with only 1 layover NOT 2) BUT for every negative there is a positive. Even though I ended up with an 18 hour travel time from Munich to Florida, I was upgraded by Icelandair (I could sleep, recline, and actually eat..If you don’t know… Icelandair usually does not offer food on their flights for economy). Thumbs up for Icelandair.

Since i have arrived safely in Florida… I will spend some time with my grandma then go to my mothers for Christmas and eat my heart out.

I wish you all a Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays!!

Heres a picture with me and my new best friend :p

Hellooooooooo

Happy Monday everyone! How are y’all on this wonderful day? I hope you are doing ok, I know Monday’s are no fun BUT we can try to change that? hopefully? Maybe? Mike and I decided to make a little Ausflug last weekend. The trip basically was us riding around in the car to different places in the south of Munich.

The sun was shining in one direction and the clouds were grey in the other directions. Days like this make me sleepy and cuddly. Not only did we have an awesome day together, we decided to take some cute photos (well Mike took photos of me because I suck at taking photos). I am seriously one of those people that will stop on the side of the road to take a picture with a cow or a flower.

If you are in Munich and you are able to move around (Car, Bike or anything that allows you to move freely) I recommend going towards Wolfratshausen ❤ It’s so beautiful and the photos ops in this area are amazing!

Love yall ❤

Being “Black” in Germany

Good evening everyone!

Being sick and stuck in bed the past week has given me a lot of time to think of things to say/do when I am feeling better BUT UNTIL THAT DAY COMES I WILL MAKE A BLOG POST. I made a wonderful video lightly skimming the surface about being a “Woman of Color” here in Germany. I get asked often what it is like here in regards to racism and in general just being brown.

As always I am here to speak (well type) about what my experiences have been and what my opinion on the matter is. If you are looking for a hate filled post you might as well go to another blog or something BECAUSE IT AIN’T HAPPENING HURRR.

I know that a lot of people still think of Germany as this racist nation full of Hitler loving blonde hair blue eyed soldiers BUT sorry to break it to you THAT’S NOT TRUE. Germany is one of the most diverse countries in the world (personal opinion). Germany is surrounded/bordered by so many different countries that it is inevitable that it would be a melting pot PLUS they have Berlin…Which is basically Multi-Culti capital.

I do understand there is tension due to the whole “refugee crisis”(ughhh) as some like to say, which leads me to point 1…. The “racism” that I see in Germany has nothing to do with African Americans but with Middle Eastern & African folks. I feel like Turkish, Syrian, Nigerian  etc. etc. people get the sh*t end of the stick here in Germany. I am not saying they are treated horribly but I do see and hear people say things that sound a little “iffy” or I have to ask myself “Is that really necessary to say or do to/about these people?”

In regards to being identified here, I have never once had to list my “race” … SKIN COLOR….as an identifier. I mean I got in a lot of trouble for not deciding between the two religions they offered BUT I am still here and standing. I have not had to list my race for getting an ID card or for voting or for ANYTHING. In the US I had to list my race on college applications, test, voters registration application or drivers license.

I get a few stares, I get a few “woher kommst du?” and I get a few people that think my hair is a sponge BUT that’s not too harmful and I feel like I can educate people when they seem to be a little perplexed. As most people know I have an obsession with Germany. I really love it here and I feel that Germany and the people here are not able to love their country or their culture. Germany is a bustling land of culture and history, which has come so far from it’s past and I believe the best way to get over this “racist/nazi” Germany mindset is to just MOVE ON PEOPLE. Seriously, we do not have to forget but we can very easily scoot scoot into the future.

Goodnight ❤ Love ya

I SHAVED MY HEAD

Actually no, I did not personally shave my head BUT my head is shaved….Parts of it. I know I know, I am too cool for school now (ha ha -_-). There is actually reasoning behind WHY I did this. I know people say “Hayley, you’re not cool…STOP TRYING”. Let me start off by saying I KNOW, this was the only way to get rid of my little wanderer. Some of yall may not know (if you watch my Youtube videos religiously you would know) BUT I burnt my hair on a candle years ago and the hairs never grew back afterwards! There was one little spot that would never grow back and would always stick up NO  MATTER WHAT.

I decided to take matters into my own hands…. shaving my hair off seemed like the best solution…DUH I mean seems very logical. Here are some SEXY SELFIES (Just kidding, I am so not sexy). I mean when I do my hair and makeup, it looks really bad ass so I am very satisfied ❤ 😉

Paris..Oui..Oui

Hello Franz 😀

Paris trip number 2. As most of yall know I spent a little time in France for the Holidays. I really did not think 4 months ago that I would end up in France for the New Year but life is always a little funny in that regard.

Anywho I ate too much, saw a lot of sites, walked a lot of kilometers, said Mon Cheri too many times to count and fell in love with such a beautiful city. If you have never ever been to Paris or even France for that matter…YOU SHOULD. It’s edgy, it’s sexy, it’s old, its modern. It’s just a big ole contradiction….There is so much to be found in Paris and you will never get bored.

PLUS THERE’S A MUDDAFRIKKIN CHIPOTLE ❤

❤ Always Hayley
