Moodboards

That's what happens when I get bored, I guess. I create fashionable (?!) moodboards. I love me some blue and mint items for warmer weather. I think it's kind of obvious I love these colours when you browse through my blog. Still, a girl can never have enough, right?

blouse, jumper h&m / pants cubus / watch fossil
I got to pick up my mint pants last week. I also had to get that mint sleeveless blouse then, I'm really digging the colour now.
In other news, I'm really sorry for not having posted that much these last few days. I caught a nasty cold! But I'm slowly getting better thanks to my friend Aspirin...
Also, I want to thank everybody for visiting my blog :) Numbers are going up and even if I get "just" one more follower in a week, it really makes me happy, so thank you!

Yummy Sunday: Cupcake Frosting recipe

valentines

Finally, here it is: the recipe for the icing I put ony my Valentine's Day cupcakes. Hope you like it!

Ingredients:
-100g soft butter
-100g icing sugar
-100g cream cheese
-vanilla extract

How to:
1. Stir the butter until it's creamy (the softer the butter, the easier it will be), add the icing sugar bit by bit.
2. Mix the cream cheese and vanilla extract in a seperate bowl (one teaspoon of vanilla extract should be enough, the stuff is really strong!).
3. Last but not least, bring the two mixtures together. If you want to, you can use food colouring (like I did).

Bon appetit!

coat zara / jumper cubus / scarf esprit / jeans h&m

I decided to use that one photo from my Diary post from earlier this week for an outfit post, since I won't really get to shoot that often right now. I'm working full time and when I get home, it's already getting dark outside... You know the story. So, I thought this was better than nothing. Hope you like it.

New in: after study shopping

newinstudy
mint jumper, leopard print pants, black maxi skirt cubus / clutch, black coated jeans, faux fur gilet, hair ring, belt h&m

Like I told you, I went to do some shopping to spoil myself after my exams. So here's what I got. Sorry for the messy picture, I tried to fit in everything. Most pieces were bought on sale, so that's a score! I also wanted to get matching pants to the mint jumper, but they didn't have them in my size, so the sweet sales girl ordered them for me. Will hopefully get to take them home soon.

Diary 02/2012 - weekend away

diaryroad
Here's what you're looking at:

1. Unstriking a pose while partying at my friends place
2. One of my girls did my hair for fun and this was the result. Loving that bun!
3. A statue of Goethe and Schiller. They used to live in the town we visited, so they're all over the place
4. Me and the boy :)
5. In the car on our way back home
6. When we were all en route, it suddenly started snowing like crazy
7. Me posing in the snow
8. Aaaand...some more snow!

I'm back from our little weekend trip. And off to work already! Hope you like the pics ;)

Move into my wardrobe


skirts Zara, pants Mango, pink workout tops H&M, nail polish essie

OMG, I just love those skirts from Zara's spring collection. They're perfect! The question is whether they'd look good on me, too. I'll definitely try them on. Those Mango pants would just be another edition to my fancy pants craze. And pink workout clothes? Yes, please!
Plus, these pastel colours will be perfect for spring nails.

On another note (aah how I love saying that haha), I am leaving for a little trip over the weekend. As you read this, I am probably in a car full of tired but happy girls and one annoyed boy (mine) on our way to the autobahn to drive all the way down east to where our dear friend K moved for her studies. It's going to be an awesome weekend! So I guess I'll be back with some fun photos. Also, I did some shopping to make up for all the studying. Will show you my new possessions soon.
Enjoy your weekend :)

Nail polish equation

What's been going on on my nails this week...

I'm sorry for neglecting the blog a bit lately. I'm writing my last exam for this month today and I'm rather nervous. If I don't pass this one I'm out. Well, not really, but almost. I just really don't want to have to take the last resort. Oh, jeez, I'm getting really really nervous now. I think I've done some decent studying, but if there's one mean question I might as well fail. Keep your fingers crossed for me, will you?!

all h&m
I was finally able to capture an outfit again (though this one had to be quick..hence the low quality). I'm sorry for the lack of proper outfit posts here, but I'm studying all day every day now for a very important exam I will write this Friday. Also, I will be going on a small trip with friends this weekend, then I will be working full time for two weeks and then... I'll have to study again. But that's life!

Happy Valentine's Day



Maria Mena - You're the only one

I made some cupcakes for my loved ones and myself. I'll share the recipe for the frosting in a 'Yummy Sunday' post soon. Enjoy your Valentine's Day!

Inspiration: blogger outfits






angelica blick, collage vintage, cotts, lovelypepablog, india rose

I noticed my inspiration folder getting fuller and fuller lately, so I thought I'd share some of these amazing looks with you.
On another note: Happy Valentine's Day!

Green with envy



cardigan forever21, knit h&m, iPod, earrings primark, nailpolish sephora, shoes zara
I hear green will be a trend colour for the upcoming season. I'm getting there! How about you?

Outfit/11022012




mango pants / h&m turtleneck, coat / bcbg bag / esprit scarf / fossil watch / akira boots

A camel on camel look. I almost forgot I had those amazing pants, but when I saw them sit in my closet, I just had to wear them again. In these pics you see me trying to fake a bloggeresque pose with my coat on my shoulders - and failing. Hope you like the look anyways!

New in: make-up


essence 'get big lashes' mascara, NYX eyeshadow palette in 'Bohemian Rhapsody', Manhattan lipstick #54V
I recently made some purchases in the make-up department and the products turned out to be amazing, so I wanted to share these with you. The mascara is, hands down, really cheap, but it works really well. It creates a lot of volume! Love!
The NYX palette is said to be a very good dupe to the famous 'Naked' palette. I can't judge that, but it surely is a very good product. I'm using it almost every day.
I was looking for a really dark red lipstick and this one was the only one that matched the colour I had in mind (it's darker in reality than it is in the photo). And it's really good. You'll see me wearing it pretty soon.

h&m men jumper / forever21 pants / zara coat / h&m faux fur / akira boots

We finally got to take some pictures in the snow. It already got a lot warmer, though, compared to the arctic temperatures we had some days ago. Now I'm gonna have to do some serious studying. I f***ed up yesterday's exam pretty badly, so that better not happen again.

Hot or not?


shoes h&m

I don't know if I should love or hate these. What do you think?

February 7, 2012

Outfit/07022012



french connection jumper / h&m blouse, choker necklace / zara pants

Yesterday's exam went alright. On to the next! Which is tomorrow... On another note: It was too damn cold to take outfit pictures outside, so I'm sorry we're gonna have to live with these ;)

DIY: leopard shorts


Why is it that whenever I have exams coming up I get loads of ideas for DIYs? In my defence I have to say that this one really didn't take long. I just cut out the leopard fabric and stuck it onto the shorts with loads of glue.
How do you like my new shorts?
Oh, and wish me luck for today! I'm writing my first exam (of a total six, ugh).

Yummy Sunday: Cocktail inspiration


photos via weheartit

I know we're far from warm summer nights with delicious cocktails, but I needed to share these with you. I love cocktails that look pretty! I prefer the fruity ones, they kind of make me feel like I'm on a summer holiday.
Enjoy your Sunday, everyone!

Outfit/04022012




h&m trend knit jumper / primark belt / monki leggings / diy scarf / zara bag / criminal coat / mexx overknee boots

How nice is it that the coat has a 'C' on the back? No, I did not have it custom made because my name begins with a C, the brand is called 'Criminal', hence the C. It's still a nice coincidence! I've actually had that coat for a really long time now, so it looks a little worn out already, but I still love it and it's definitely one of the warmest I own. Comes in handy with the freezing weather we're facing here right now.

Beauty tips


I've got a whole day of massive studying ahead of me. Exams start monday, and, let's just say - there's a lot of info I'd still like to stuff into my brain until then. Somehow. So I'll leave you with a little beauty tip for today.

I acutally got the 'Blush by Marc Jacobs' perfume as a cute little tester and it smells pretty good. At first I thought it smelled like a clean hotel room, but as it develops it's a nice mix of fresh and sweet. It's a very subtle perfume, not too attention-drawing, really nice.

The Smashbox high definition foundation, powder and concealer are perfect! I got the lightest colour and it still is a little too dark for my skin, but that doesn't show as much since this make-up provides perfect coverage. Love it!

It's done!




Remember when I told you about the scarf I was knitting? Well, it's finally done now. After many evenings watching the german edition of "I'm a celebrity - get me outta here" (it's a guilty pleasure and I admit it!) I ultimately succeeded. I love this superlong, chunky, warm scarf. It has its flaws, but it's perfect! haha
