DIY Lemon Lip Balm

I sometimes thank my parents that I’m blessed with a relatively clear skin; although it takes ages for me to get a tan (I need ten days when my brother needs one) I’ve never had any major problems with pimples or acne and that’s really something. As a result I’ve never had to invest that much money into skin care products and cosmetics, and although I am actually in favour of natural cream and makeup it’s really too expensive for me to buy on a regular basis.

Fashion Love: Zuhair Murad

Okay, so obviously I seem to live in world where you just occasionally dress up to the nines, as there is just a lack of fitting occasions for that. I certainly don’t want to complain, I am actually not a person to go in night clubs where you have to wear a short dress or otherwise be looked at askant. There was a time, yes, but let’s not get further into that. What I mean is, I think that I come after my grandmother when I like to sometimes dress up real nicely (and with nicely I mean long gown, stunning hair, potential tiara), and I guess 99% of the girls like to do that as well. I mean, remember those times as a little kid when you loved to put on your mother’s clothes and use her makeup? I am almost certain that my desire to put on a nice dress is just the adult version of that. If it weren’t for those god-awful high heeled shoes. Nice to look at, upgrade your posture, make a nice behind but unless you walk in them every day or more than once a month you’re gonna have a bad time. I just feel too tall to walk in high heeled shoes every day, but talk about first world problems. Well the shoes I wore last Saturday were definitely a tad too high for my taste, I could walk in them, but not for very long as it seems. But dressing up for the wedding made me think about all those other occasions I dressed up for a major event, for my end-of-course dance (awkward) and for my graduation ball (went barefoot in the end). And I came to the conclusion that sometimes selecting the actual dresses, buying them, putting them on for the first time and imagining wearing them to this event is better than the event itself.

DIY Embellished Hair Combs

The thing about events like a wedding is, you wait months for them to come and then they are over rather quickly. It’s like this when you are a 7 year old waiting for Christmas and it’s the same when you grow older (and are still waiting for Christmas like a 7 year old). So the event was, well, interesting. The locations were amazing, the ceremony was held at an old mansion just outside Cologne, which surprisingly for me is the same place that holds my institutes’ theatre themed library. What a coincidence! And obviously I am very lucky to never having to lend a book from that place. The bride looked gorgeous, although I would have gone for less lace and tulle but everybody’s got their own taste right?

Things I Love: July

So another month seems to be over again, a month of sunshine, of rain (sometimes), of writing my thesis and of seeing many beautiful things around me. With periodic posts like this here it always occurs to me how fast time is flying. I don’t want to sound melancholic and I am actually not a person who thinks about the past very often, but I am sure you know the moments when something distinct happens and you think about that one occasion…yeah I’m sure everyone has that with embarrassing events and I sure do as well.

DIY Double Layered Necklace

A time of change has arrived for me. I am not only starting my last semester of university in October, but have actually written some applications and I have a new sideline starting September! A strange feeling, since I am the worst creature of habit you can imagine (changing my bedsheets on exactly the 15th every month? That’s me!), but I am both really excited and just a teeny tiny bit sad, since working with such nice girls was fun. But it’s time for something new!

Inspiration: Layered Neckaces

Hey there guys, I am really excited for the wedding is getting nearer and nearer! The part I love most about this is the planning of everything, starting from the outfit down to the shoes, some fitting accessories and of course a good makeup. So it seems I have everything set (except for the makeup, but I’m thinking about bright pink lipstick to an otherwise black outfit) and are ready to go. Sad actually, I really loved the planning part. Although the eating and drinking and dancing part sure as hell will be awesome as well.

Sweet Sunday: Greek Yoghurt Popsicles

As I have written in my previous post, I am right now catching up on all the things I wanted to do for some time. And since I am cooking almost every day, baking and making some delicious treats has been coming a bit short, considering the fact that most of the time I love to make something sweet and delicious, but usually end up eating just one cupcake or one slice of cake. I am actually not a person who can devour half a cake without noticing it on my hips in, let’s say, two seconds.
