winter essentials II Lifestyle & Beauty

I've stopped writting "best of" posts a couple of months ago, nevertheless I still want to share my favorites with you, so I decided to write seasonal essentials articles. As it's nearly christmas and my christmas break just started, I thought it might be time to share this post with you.

"Please stop caring so much about everything, it doesn't matter what others think of you, it doesn't matter what others say about your look or your personality. Don't change for anyone but yourself. Stop trying so hard to be liked by everyone, at the end they will leave and the only thing that matters for you is yourself." -Unknown


Chai Tea & Sugar Cookies II Food


What's the best thing to do on a rainy day in Autumn/Winter? Right, baking.

All black everything II Fashion

Lately some people have been asking me why I hardly ever post outfit of the day pictures on my Instagram account. So I decided to give you an answer, besides that I want to share my "casual everyday look" with you.


my favorite fall/autumn recipes II food

2 recipes

Messy hair, netflix, fuzzy socks, caramel apple pie flavoured tea, fall candles - it's Sunday. I personally enjoy Sundays even more in autumn time because, besides the things I've named previously, I adore baking and cooking. Especially when it's raining ouside or after a lovely walk. So I thought it would be nice to share two of my favorite fall recipes with you, enjoy.


Best of September 2016 II Lifestyle

September - a month filled with happiness, good memories, music, deep thoughts, passions, new experiences,.. has got to an end. And so it's time for my best of september article. I want to be honest with you and so I have to say that this september was a really exhausting and stressfull month for me, but in the same way I've had some time to overthink my life, to relax and to start working on some new projects, not to forget that I even changed school this month. Anyway, let's get started.


Let's get cosy II Lifestyle

Hot chocolate, falling leaves, warm sweaters, pumkins, candles,.. fall/autumn is here, which is actually my favorite season. Autumn is the only time of the year when you can cuddle down in your bed, light a candle, enjoy your own me-time and read BOOKS. On my vacation two weeks ago (post here) I've had enough time to finally read some books. An so I want to share my favorite ones with you and perhaps give you some inspiration.


the band shirt II Fashion & Inspiration

It's friday night, well actually it's nearly saturday, and I'm probably the only one who's sitting inside, with a candle and some hot chocolate. *Can you tell that I'm pretty excited for fall/autumn? Well I'AM.* Nevertheless I have a summery outfit for you, which we've shooted last week in France. I don't know when this post will be online, well it might be on sunday, so I hope you've had a lovely weekend and you're ready for monday. Speaking about monday, school starts and I literally don't know if I should be scared or excited. Anyways let's start with the real topic of this post.

Summer 2k16 Impressions

Pictures speak more than words can..


Best of August 2016 II Beauty & Lifestyle

I don't know maybe it's only me, but I fell like time goes by way to fast. According to that August is already comming to an end. And as you can see in the picture above, my August favourites don't really look very summery. Once again he weather was very bad this month, well I've for sure never been wearing more hoodies and drinking more tea in August than this year. I was basicly ready for fall until summer came back this week. And I'm also going away for 2 weeks, so I'm pretty excited for September. Except the fact that I'm going back to school this month. Time for a new beginning.


Enjoy the little things II Fashion & Thoughts

It's Sunday again and so the weekend is nearly over, but I think I can speak for everyone when i say 'Weekend I love you'. Basicly we all do, don't you think? The weekend is simply amazing. So today I want to share this outfit and some thoughts with you. I hope you like this post!


write your own story II Lifestyle

things to do this summer

August is actually the only month of the year that I (and all the other students in Luxemburg) don't have school. So that makes August a very exciting month for us all, I mean it's the time where we all try to make the best summer memories. We travel to different countries, work to gain some money and simply enjoy summertime.
I was really excited for my summer holidays to finally start, I even wrote down a list with things I thought were nice to make this summer, which I'm going to share with you today. But unfortunately summer did not show up in Luxemburg so far. I mean we have had some good days, but for exemple right now I'm sitting inside with my hoodie on, a cup of tea by my side and it's raining outside. So I don't know maybe the weather is better were your live, I hope so, and you can make any use out of this list.


Raspberry Jam II Food


Do you know these days when you're having breakfast with your family/friends and selfmade jam is the only thing that is missing on your breakfast table. Well I have the perfect recipe and a little throwback for you today. This recipe usually takes me inbetween 20 and 30 minutes and tastes delicious. Enjoy.


Best of July 2016 II Beauty & Lifestyle

Hello and happy sunday everyone,
July is over and so it's time for my favorites, it's kinda terrifying how much happened this month. I mean July has felt like one of the longest, sadest and happiest month that I've had this year. I've written my last exam, finished this school year, worked on my website and travelled to 3 different countries. Anyway, I'm happy that July is finally over and so August, my favorite summer month, can start. This month is literally meant to make memories.


Heidelberg, Germany II travel

travel with me

Last weekend was the first time that I've ever visited Heidelberg, therefore I don't think I can give you any great tips. Nevertheless I just want to share some pictures and talk a little bit about our stay. We had a really good time there, so I've decided that this post is going to be some kind of a travel diary about Heidelberg.


Citytrip Outfit II Fashion

travel with me 

Hello everybody, how are you?
It has been more than a week since I'm out of school now. So I've taken some time for myself to plan everything for my upcoming holidays, but I've also been away for some days. According to that, I've this outfit for you.


Time to start a new chapter II thoughts

Do you know the feeling of not knowing if you are taking the right decisions?


Best of June 2016 II Beauty & Lifestyle

Hello world,
I'm back with my monthly favorites, this time a little bit later because my laptop broke down and I actually had to learn for my last exam before I could look after my macbook and finish this blogpost. I'm very excited today, because I've written my last exam and holidays are coming in a few days. But before that I want to share this post with you, enjoy.


Matching the rainy weather II Fashion

Hey, I hope you're doing well. As you can imagine the weather is really bad and strange at the moment here in Luxembourg. It is already June and although I'm not living in a city next to the beach where the sun always shines, it should already be warmer outside. Waking up each morning with no idea what to wear is very annoying, even if the sun shines in the morning it can start raining 5 minutes later. So this is my look which matches the rainy luxembourgish weather pretty well (in my opinion). I hope you like it.


Brownies II Food


Hello, today I'm back with a new recipe, this time I'm going to show you how to create these delicious chocolate brownies. My passion for baking started a few years ago when I had to bake some macarons for school with a good friend of mine. And this was actually one of the first things that I've ever baked, so I'm very happy to share this recipe with you. Enjoy.


Best of May 2016 II Beauty & Lifestyle

Good morning, I hope you're having an amazing weekend with hopefully better weather than it's here in Luxembourg at the moment. May is already over and so it's time for my monthly favorites. Isn't it crazy how quickly the last five months  passed by? I mean it's June, so we're already halfway through 2016. Anyway, I hope you like this post.


outfits of the week II Fashion

my everyday style

Hello everyone, it's time for a new fashion post. I had so much to do for school lately that I totally forgot to finish this post for you. As some of you perhaps know I've been on a little vacation last week, so this blogpost is all about my different outfits I have been wearing that week. I've been away with my family and some friends, so don't expect anything spectacular, I just want to show you my everyday style. I hope you like it.


Things I love II Lifestyle

A-Z post

Hello and welcome back, today from the Nederlands.
I suppose that you don't know much about me. Well this will change in the future, I decided to write an A-Z list just about things that I love. So I hope you like it.


my travel essentials II lifestyle

Hey hey, I'm very excited for todays post, because I'm going to show you my travel essentials, which means that I'm finally going away again.


Sunsets are the best II Fashion

Hello, I hope you're going well.
I'm currently sitting in the sun in my garden and it feels so good to finally sit outside and to soak up the sun. So I thought it would be a good idea to share this spring look with you. As you can tell these pictures are already some days old, because my hair is way longer than it's now. I know this probably sounds a little bit girly but it hurts in some way to see my long hair in these pictures, but I'm also very very happy with my new hair lenght.


Best of April 2016 II Beauty & Lifestyle

Hey, April is nearly over and so it's time for a blogpost about my favorites, as you liked my last one so much, I thought it would be a good idea to write a new one .  I hope you like it.



The sun is finally out II Fashion & Thoughts

Hey I hope you've had a nice weekend and that you're ready for Monday. It's finally time for a new blogpost, this one is going to be a fashion post, but also some kind of a post about some thoughts I've had lately. I hope you're a as exited as I am.


Follow your dreams II Thoughts

today's blogpost is very different from all the others I've written before, but it's the most important post for me.


Chocolate Chip Cookies II Food


Hello and welcome back,
I decided to show you today how I made these delicious chocolate chip cookies. Acutally, I think nearly everyone who knows me also knows the taste of these cookies. (this sounds kind of weird but it's true) Some years ago, I wanted to bake some cookies and this is the recipe  I've created. I hope you like it.


Eleanor & Park II Lifestyle

book review

Hello everyone,
as I told you some days ago, I wanted to write a whole review about the book Eleanor and Park by Rainbow Rowell, so here it is. Firstly I want to say that I know that my english isn't perfect (it's my third year of english in school) and that it's really difficult to put into words the feelings you have after you've read this book, but I hope you like it anyway.


Best of March 2016 II Beauty & Lifestyle

Welcome back, today's blogpost is going to be some kind of a post about my most used beauty products last month and about my lifestyle favorites. Basically March was a very stressful month for me. But I think I've found some lovely things to show you today, so let's start with my beauty favorites.


quick & easy last minute Easter decoration II diy

Hello everyone, I hope you're going well. I don't know who of you is going to celebrate Easter, but I thought it was a good idea to show you a little last minute Easter decoration. Actually this wasn't my idea, because I've seem it in a shop before, but I decided to do it myself. I hope you like it.


Hello Spring II Fashion

Spring is finally here.

Hey, I am so happy that I finally have found time to sit down and write this blogpost for you. The last few weeks have been very stressful for me, but I have written my last exam last week, so I have finally time to work on my personal project. Anyway, the weather has been very sunny and beautiful last week (unfortunately it was very cold), so I went outside and photographed my first outfit for you. As it is one of the first days of spring and as it's nearly Easter,  I think it is the perfect occasion to show you one of my favorite outfits at the moment. I am so excited, because I have never done something like this before.



Hey, nice to meet you!

This is my very first post, so I think it's might the best idea to introduce myself a bit.
So here we go, I'm Shana, a 16 years old student based in Luxembourg. If you don't know, Luxembourg is a very small country next to Germany, Belgium and France.

I'm passionate about photography, art, decoration, food, fashion and books. So that's what my blog's all about, my personal lifestyle. But basically I also want to share my thoughts and feelings with you.

If you want to get to know me even better, visit my Instagram, you can also sent me an email: alittlemagicwork@gmail.com. I speak german, french, english and luxembourgish, so feel free and write me in which language you want.

In fact I only have that one dream to inspire and motivate as many people as possible.
So I hope you can find some inspiration here.

Have a wonderful day, 
See you soon,

"And suddently you know ... It's time to start something new and trust the magic of beginnings."
