Outfit Recap: 2011




I was planning on making a big 'best of 2011' post, but I've been working full time this week and so I was a little short on time. The 'best of' post will surely come soon, but it might have to wait a couple more days. Hope you don't mind, eh.

For today, I leave you with a recap of all my outfits from this year. I noticed that I've started taking better and more pictures towards the end of the year...compared to those from January, they're way better already. I'm keeping my fingers crossed that I'll be able to provide better pics next year, full body and all.
What I've also noticed is that my style has really changed quite much throughout the year. I love seeing how someones style evolves over time and blogging is just perfect for that.
Enough for now - I hope you like this little recap. What do you think of it? And more importantly: What are your plans for tonight?

Outfit/30122011



h&m trend jumper
h&m faux leather skirt

I wore this outfit to a Christmas dinner with my friends last week. Yes, I got inspired by Yara for this one. I think the combo of that jumper with a leather skirt is amazing. How about you?

Samsung Galaxy Note Street Squad

I'm sure you've all heard about the Samsung Galaxy Note pad by now. I actually think it's quite a chic, sophisticated little gadget. Note the stress on 'little', ladies! What I like about this tab is that it definitely fits in every handbag. And yet, it's not as small as a phone, so it's still super easy to use.

The video you can watch below introduces all the different functions of the Samung Galaxy Note, presented by the lovely Katy (you just have to love her british accent!). They picked a zoo for the scenery and I think that's very nice, because it's somewhat unexpected. With all these commercials around, presenting gadgets in an uberurban atmosphere, a simple thing such as going to the zoo seems very refreshing to me. I'm actually surprised by how many functions that little tab has. I wouldn't mind carrying one of those around with me myself...

Outfit/Christmas Eve




clothing at target dress
primark cardigan
h&m clutch, tights
swarovski/fossil bracelets
pilgrim earrings

Yes, I'm still alive! Took the freedom of taking a break from blogging for the holidays. It's very unusual for me to spend 24 hours without my laptop, let alone three days, but it was good. To be honest, I'm sort of sad Christmas is already over. I enjoyed the food, the good movies and the cozy moments on the sofa with the whole family so much! Hope you all had pleasant holidays, too.
For the next days, you will have to cope with some Christmas aftermath - took loads of pictures, especially of the decorations and the tree.

Ok, I gotta run now, but I hope you'll have an amazing time with your loved ones. I'll make sure to share photos soon!

New in: sale shopping etc



all H&M

I couldn't resist getting something for myself while shopping for Christmas gifts. Since some stores have already started the sale, I thought I might as well give it a shot. I have to admit that not all the items above were bought in the sale, but they weren't too pricey either. I ordered the shoes online with a 50% discount code. Score! How do you like my new stuff?

All of the lights



In my room.

Boring holidays?

I know that there's a lot of people out there who resent Christmas a little for being such a quiet time where you don't have anything to do. Shops are closed, there's nothing good on tv, all your friends stay with their families... OR you stay with your loved ones, too, but there's only so much you guys could talk about over dinner.
In my family, it's almost a tradition to watch loads of movies on Christmas, especially on Boxing Day and such. So, here's my little top 6 (intended to make that 5, but I couldn't resist) list of movies to watch if you want to get all cozy on the couch on Christmas (they're not all necessarily Christmas movies):

1. Love Actually

Need I say anything? It's the perfect movie for Christmas and I never get bored of it although I've been watching it every year now ever since it came out on DVD (and that's 2003!). Plus, it features many great actors and ~sigh London!

2. Bridget Jones's Diary

I just love Bridget Jones, both movies actually! It's just one of the funniest and loveliest romantic comedies ever. I think Renée Zellweger is doing an amazing job here, never watched any other movie that starred her that I liked so much. And Colin Firth + Hugh Grant = English handsomeness, a no-brainer! (ok, the handsomeness might be more for my mum, but the english part, I'll totally go with)

3. Love and other Disasters

I believe this is Brittany Murphy's best role. It's such a sweet story and again a romantic comedy. Also, it has very many inspiring moments, fashion-wise. So, lovelies, go and watch it! It's basically about a young woman who works for a big fashion magazine in London, living with her gay best friend. Then she meets a really cute guy who she believes is gay, too. But, of course, he isn't and there's another love story coming your way.

4. The Last Kiss

I really wonder why this movie isn't that popular. It's really romantic and has many sad, but also some funny moments. It starrs Zach Braff and Rachel Bilson and is about a young man who is about to become a father, happily in love with his girlfriend. Suddenly he gets scared of being trapped in that life forever and cheats on his girlfriend with a young girl, which, ultimately causes big drama in his life.

5. Keinohrhasen (Rabbit Without Eears)

Let me tell you first that I absolutely hate Til Schweiger (the male actor in the pictures), he's just about the least appealing person the German industry has to offer, in my opinion. But my boyfriend and I fell in love with this cute movie when we watched it on our anniversary some years ago. So, since then, it's kind of become our thing to watch it again from time to time, since it's linked to memories and so... But it's a really nice movie in general. The actors are doing a great job and the music is pretty well-picked. It's been a blockbuster here in Germany, so if you want to watch a German movie, try this one. They sell it internationally as amazon tells me. I believe it's been synchronized, too. There's a sequel to go with it (named 'Zweiohrküken', also a sweet movie), but to my knowledge this one has only been released internationally as a subtitle-version.

6. Sex and the City Movie

By now you probably got that I like to get pretty girly around Christmas. So, the SATC movies are an absolute must! I actually prefer the first one since the story seems a little more original to me. In general, I just like the idea of sitting in the middle of all my gorgeous Xmas gifts (a girl can dream...) and getting lost in a wonderful glittery world full of nice shoes and stuff.

Hope you liked this post and enjoy watching!

Yes or No?

bag, zara

Can't decide whether this one is a hottie or..not so much. The cut reminds me a bit of that Céline bag, but the leopard pattern... Can we still walk around with that one in a year or so? (it's a print on cow fur, so I imagine it's not as shiny in real life) Tell me how you like the bag!

DIY: christmas wrapping paper

Finally, a proper DIY again! I'm afraid it's nothing fashion related this time. This year, I thought I'd make my own wrapping paper for Christmas. It's easy as the ABC, but I wrote down the steps for you, just in case. Hope you like it!


What you need:
-packaging paper
-scissors, some cardboard + a pencil
-thick red paint + a brush

How to:
1. take the cardboard and draw whatever figures or words you want to put on your wrapping paper.
make sure the shapes aren't too complicated, so they're easy to carve out
2. when you're done, start carving out your drawings, so that you have a couple of models
3. put the models on the packaging paper and fill in the cut-outs with red paint
