in her shoes - a feature with pia of odds and ends

i have a super fabulous lady to share with you all today.  met pia of odds and endsthis girl is beautiful from the inside out and i am so excited to be able to share with you a day in her shoes!  her space is filled with so many pretty pretty things you won't want to miss.  but before you head over, take a look at a day in her shoes...

What motivates you to get your day started? 

I'm not really sure if this is a motivation, but most mornings when I wake up, I am starving!
So the thought of a cup of freshly brewed coffee and toast with Nutella gets me out of bed in the morning.

What part of your day do you most look forward to and why?

The time that I get to spend with the boyfriend is what I'm looking forward to the most. After we eat dinner, we always snuggle on our couch, talk about our days and watch TV shows. Definitely my favorite part of the day.

What do you like most about where you live?

I live in Cologne, Germany. It is not a particularly beautiful city, but it is full of life.
People from lots of different cultures live here, and I love the diversity you see when you are walking through the streets.
And have you seen the Cologne Cathedral? I can't count how many times I have walked past it, but it amazes me every. time.

What part of your day is the most difficult and what do you do to overcome that?
I'd have to say that's the part of my day that I have to spend at Uni. I know that I should be thankful that I am given the opportunity to get an education. But after going there for 4 years and feeling like I haven't really accomplished anything in those years, it really is enough. When I am sitting in a lecture that is really, really boring and I feel like I am close to falling asleep, I get out my book sometimes and read. I know, that's bad. But it is the only way of getting through the lecture.

What do you love most about yourself today? 
I used to be a girl that was extremely shy. Like, super shy. I didn't really dare talk to anyone and I always hated that about me. I am still a little shy today, but I love about me that, as I grew up in the last 3 years, I am now someone who can stand up for myself.

And I love that I basically taught myself to cook.

okay now go show her some love!  thank you pia for being so amazing and sharing your shoes with us today!  XO Lindsay
