But I'm feeling 22!

On Tuesday I discovered that my friend Sabby had booked flights out to visit me (nothing like spontaneity, eh?), so I managed to book the afternoon off work for us to get the chance to explore Munich's christmas markets, drink glühwein, and generally celebrate being twenty-two! Last night we baked an amaretto cake (I would've gone for a classic victoria sponge, but self-raising flour is a purely British thing, apparently?), which the office promptly devoured today, along with my supervisor's dutch stroopwafeln as it's his birthday too!

We're currently wrapped up in so many layers it's gone past fashionable to michelin man to brave the snow, so wish us luck as we head out into the open! Hope you're all having an amazing day, and enjoying the (much, much warmer) British weather

Have you noticed something a little different about my blog? After a while (okay, a couple of years) of umm-ing and ahh-ing, I've finally purchased a domain for It's Cohen! Party poppers at the ready, right? Having that little .co.uk at the end of my name feels a little bit fancier than the ever-faithful blogspot, but it makes me feel slightly more professional, and it's going to be much quicker to scribble down at meet-ups! If you could update any links you may have, I would definitely appreciate it, although I'm hoping this won't prove too problematic if you follow me on bloglovin'. Fingers, toes, and hair (if I plait it) crossed that everything works out okay.

Now for something completely different. Although the Stylight offices are pretty cosy, it can't hurt to layer up a little, particularly when you've left your scarf at home. On this occasion, I added my now staple high-neck dress underneath my new scarlet LOVE number for a toasty ensemble. Maybe I'm getting into red after seeing every other person wearing a Bayern Munich scarf on the U-Bahn of a weekend, or maybe I'm getting fed up of burgundy. Maybe. We'll test that one out next week.

The colder the night gets, the further she strays.

It's definitely getting festive in Munich. Snow falls, I'm using a horrendous amount of hand cream, and there are poinsettia in every shop window. Saturday was the day for our christmas party, and we got a coach from work to a location shrouded in secrecy. An hour and a half later, we were considerably closer to the Austrian border, and we pulled up to the view of snow-topped mountains in Schliersee. A wander round the christmas markets with glühwein in hand involved an inevitable photo opportunity (we were all wearing fur hats!), before heading on a boat out to a restaurant on an island in the middle of the lake for food and drink - who could complain? By the time we were all suitably wined and dined, we headed back to our coach for a trip even further east to a club which we stayed in till the early hours, and it was gone 8am before I collapsed into bed - cue one tired girl the next day (and today!).

Germany is such a beautiful country, but I can't help but get a little excited every time I see the "check in" reminder on my calendar, as there are certain home comforts a girl can't help but miss, even if that is mainly cheddar... This will be the first time I've spent my birthday in another country (it's this Friday, for all of you who may have forgotten ;) ), so it'll be odd not to get the usual caterpillar cake, but it's about time new traditions were made. And when they're in the setting of Marienplatz, I really don't think that's a problem!
