2015, the beginning

HAPPY NEW YEAR BABES!

2015, huh, how time flies, God…
Don’t worry, I’m not here to quote you things like “New year, new me” and all that other blabla people throw at you at every beginning of a new year.
In fact, I’m here to motivate you (and myself kind of) for 2015!
2014 actually wasn’t my year, it was filled with a lot of mixed feelings and most of the time not the most positive ones, and I guess that’s why I’m now pretty excited for this new year. I learned from my mistakes though, as well as I learned from others’ mistakes, I got a clearer view of certain people, I grew (“in wisdom” lol) etc. …

tumblr_nhgwa1OGrY1s2j0zlo1_500But most importantly : I learned to accept myself, I gained some self-confidence! I feel happy about the way I look and about how I’m…build. Now please don’t take this in an arrogant way, because I’m still far away from that (I don’t even want to get to that point actually!); I’m not saying that I would now feel comfortable being in underwear in front of anyone or whatever you might be thinking, but I simply feel comfortable being in underwear “in front of myself”. I think it’s important that everyone feels this way! Everyone should be able to look at their body and smile or at least be satisfied with it! We all tend to believe what others tell us; when someone says “you’re fat”, we feel fat, when we get told that ‘we’re too thin’, we feel too thin, and so on… But fact is : screw them, screw others’ opinions. Who said that they’re right? Who said their definition of “fat” and “thin” is right? Who said that “fat” and “too thin” and whatever is bad? This all sounds like some Hannah Montana/Selena Gomez song, but you get the idea…
It’s your body, so it’s your task to decide if it’s good or not… Just please stay on the healthy road!

BACK TO THE ACTUAL SUBJECT hah
So yes, I gained some self-confidence, I now also feel much more comfortable wearing things I really like and I’ve stopped thinking about what others might think of what I’m wearing. I like it, I wear it. And guess what?! I feel much better like this.
I don’t need to please everyone, I can’t even stand most of the people who see me on a daily basis, so why even bother?! The only person I want to please right now is myself. I personally admire those who live just for themselves, who don’t try to please anyone, who do their own thing and it’s kind of my “aim” to have someone seeing me that way. One could even describe this as a form of independency.

As you can see, 2014 might not have been one of my best years, but I still learned a lot from it! And I want to make good use of all the things I learned and gained in 2014 this year, in order to have an excellent 2015.
Now, I’m not really a resolutions person, but I set myself some goals for this year and even already have things I’m looking forward to do this year.

Goals :
– get a freaking summer job!!! (now this has been my “goal” since like 2013 lol but this time it’s for real! I’m at least gonna try!)
– get my driving licence! (becoming 18 soon, sooo…)
– pass my year! (school ofc)
– be more positive, do more of what makes me happy and ignore what doesn’t

Things I’m looking forward to :
– Ed Sheeran concert *shriek of excitement*
– travelling (don’t know when or where or if the things I have in mind will work out, but I’ll surely at least go to one place)

tumblr_mi75i6118p1r0vwc4o1_500 tumblr_ndget4KQB41rv857go1_1280

And that’s it for the goals and things I’m looking forward to for the moment. Having these just excites me more for this year and kind of reassures me. I’m not simply entering a year with no plan at all, or just letting myself go. I actually have things I want to do and achieve and I know that there will be amazing things I’ll be experiencing and all that just makes life much more interesting for me!
I can just recommend you to do the same! Make a list of things you would like to do (this year or even in the far future), write down things you are going to do which you can’t wait for, make a list of things you know you should do (find a job?! get better grades?! …), etc. … You will notice that having it in front of you, being able to read it, will just excite you more and even motivate you! Wanna meet your actual idol(s)?! Well write it down and maybe one day, in a few years, you will be able to actually meet them and you can cross that thing out of your list!

tumblr_myopbhS6b51t3d0yfo1_500 tumblr_n19m7dQIjC1tnc4moo1_500 tumblr_nhi8itjc6s1qiegwlo1_500

You aren’t meant to get everything you desire done in just one year, you got your entire lifetime in front of you, so don’t feel disappointed if you aren’t able to get something done, because of ‘financial problems’ or because your parents won’t let you!
You want something?! Work for it, do your best to get it and be patient (I know this last point can be really hard but…).

(just to clarify : I still had some pretty good moments in 2014! Really loved the summer I had with my baby gurl Tatiana, for example + all the pictures were taken from tumblr)

And that’s it. What are your plans for 2015? Are you excited for it?

CHRISTMAS // WISHLIST

Dear Father Christmas,
I have been a really nice girl this year, so here’s my ‘2014 wishlist’ :

WISHLIST 2014

1. B O O K S // Girl Online – Zoe Sugg (yes, one of the main reasons why I want this is because I totally adore Zoella, BUT I’ve also already read the first pages and I really like her writing style, kind of reminded me of John Green!), Paper Towns – John Green (the movie will come out around June, so why not read the book first!), Let It Snow – John Green, Lauren Myracle & Maureen Johnson.
2. U N D E R W E A R // I don’t know why, but I really want Calvin Klein undies, I mean… It is expensive yes! but I just can’t resist.
3. R I N G S // I want rings, silver rings especially, because I just own golden or rusty rings and well…
4. B R A L E T T E S // There is just nothing to say, I want one and that is that.

WISHLIST 2014 2

5. L I P S T I C K // I own a bordeaux lipstick, which is a quite ‘strong’ and striking colour and therefore I would like to also own a more soft, lighter lipstick colour, which I could wear regurlarly. (that darker lipstick on the picture is just because I love the colour and just couldn’t resist and not put it here, it’s from Charlotte Tilbury just like the one on the right, in case anyone of you wants to know)
6. M A S C A R A // I’m running out of mascara, that’s all.
7. D R Y  S H A M P O O // It’s so practical, I mean, I don’t wash my hair every day and sometimes it somehow manages to get greasy quicker than it should (not extremely greasy, but still) and isn’t it amazing to then just have some dry shampoo to quickly apply before leaving for school?!
8. N A I L P O L I S H // My nailpolishes are a mess at the moment, so time to renew my nailpolish collection!

WISHLIST 2014 39. P E R F U M E // Délices de Cartier, I got one of those perfume samples of this one the other day and wow, love it!
10. P E R F U M E // Manifesto – YSL, same with this one (it’s either one or the other though, not asking for both obviously)
11. S K I N C A R E // Redness Solutions – Clinique, ok, so basically I’ve got weird skin. It’s not like I’ve got extreme redness, because on good days you really don’t see any of it, but on bad days : ew. I really hate it. The space between my eyebrows, is the worst spot and I would really like to have something to soothe it on such days.
12. B A C K P A C K // They’re cute, they’re practical and that’s all.

WISHLIST 2014 4

13. C L O T H E S // I want a freaking coat! Be it with or without fur, I just want a beautiful, warm coat, so that I don’t have to always wear my actual black and boring jacket. (but I must say that I especially like the one with just fur around the ‘neck’, as I saw Gabriella Lindley aka velvetgh0st wearing a similar one the other day in her vlog and instantly fell in love)
14. C L O T H E S // Capes. I don’t know…why always just wear an actual jacket/coat!? (and yes, I got again inspired by a youtuber : Zoella (you barely see it but well))
15. B E D D I N G // Is it weird to want something like this for Christmas? If yes : well I don’t care, because my actual bedding is from like 10 years ago and has Barbies and other childish stuff on it lolz, and I think that a bedroom always looks better with a nice bedding.
16. M U S I C // I want a loudspeaker or iPod Player or however you call that, because you surely know that feeling when you just want to listen to music from your iPod/MP3 player out loud.

I know that there is a LOT on my wishlist, but I simply put everything on here that came to my mind. I’m obviously not expecting to get everything from this list, this was also mainly to give you an idea of what you could ask for or buy your friends/sister for Christmas!

Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays and see you soon!
xoxo

Style Of The Day : TARTAN

HELLO, so first of all I wanted to say sorry for having been absent for more than a month ! I don’t know if anyone even noticed that, but I feel bad myself for leaving my blog all by itself for so long, because I do care about it ! I guess the main reason for this, was the lack of ideas/inspiration as well as a lack of time, because of school.
BUT here I am again with a few more ideas to tell you about and to start, I would like to present to you “TARTAN”.
You all already heard about this trend for sure, it is everywhere to be seen. It was in last year and still is this year.
When one mentions “tartan”, a lot of people tend to immediately think about the colour red and also about the scottish kilts, but guess what, this pattern exists in various colours! On top of that : you will find more than just kilts of that pattern whoop.

I personally really love the green and blue version.

Tartan is really easy to combine with other clothing items. Go for black + tartan and nothing can go wrong.

BRANDSPIRATION

I’m not really a “brand person”, but there are some pretty cool brands, which I bump into on tumblr and instagram over and over again. Let me show you what I mean….

tumblr_nbed2v3mAp1s8rlzuo1_500tumblr_nbdcj3NMwV1rt6vm8o1_500 tumblr_nbdtdbVrEW1rpvlmco1_500tumblr_nbc42fkbSg1sttozoo1_500
tumblr_nbfpbk1QOB1smd3f2o1_400tumblr_nbfmbj4tbd1tsmkd3o1_500
ADIDAS – a brand we’ve all already seen and heard about. I personally can’t wait to own those sneakers, which yes are pretty simple, but which still managed to make me fall in love.

tumblr_nc93qxslgb1tu1i4wo1_500tumblr_nc23wfn6Pn1twtouro1_500
CALVIN KLEIN – Calvin Klein underwear…it’s everywhere and we all want it.

tumblr_n74b45MQZQ1qjlvxzo1_500tumblr_n803v1zwPs1qf7j35o1_500 tumblr_n166kpmoGL1r4k6lbo1_500 tumblr_ncxmjx0wQb1s9lix1o1_500

tumblr_ncymzoIGmG1s98irjo1_500tumblr_ncyqstydQC1sgqdsmo1_500
NIKE – same as for Adidas : it’s everywhere, it’s cool, it’s simple.

I kind of just focused on the more simple and sporty brands as you can see, but there are many other brands that often appear on my tumblr dashboard.

SUMMER – Gifts & Clothes

Oh summer, there you go… For some, summer is still present, but for me summer ends as soon as I get back from holidays.
It’s now been 2-3 weeks, that I came back from Portugal and I’m still feeling quite “nostalgic” about that to be honest. I miss the sun, being able to put on your most loved summer outfits, not having to worry about anything, the fun … But hey!, there will be more of that “”soon”” and after all we all got to go back to normal life at some point!
But let’s leave it here with the introduction and move to the important stuff :
When on holidays, I spent a lot of time with my (lovely) cousin, Tatiana, who actually gave me a shoe box filled with some cute little things, which I’m about to show you here.

P1000951P1000997The first thing that popped into my eye, when opening the box, was this beautifully looking bottle.
Victoria’s Secret Pink Beach Weekend foaming body wash *breathe*, which smells extraordinarily good !

P1000961P1000959A little, pretty bracelet from Firenze (Italy).

P1000965 P1000966Some postcards and two little books, a german one (which was more of a ‘joke’ present as it is kind of a children’s story lolz) and a french one (as I know that a lot of my readers are french : this seems to be a nice book to read during your free time, “for fun”. It’s about a relationship between a teenager and a married woman; this is all I’m telling you as I haven’t even read the book myself).

P1000990P1000991 Two of the cutest plasters I’ve ever seen.

Among these little things, were also some edible goodies, which are obviously gone by now + some undiz lol (I didn’t really feel like taking a picture of them and I also can’t find them on the site, so yeah, sorry?).

I obviously also went shopping while in Portugal, considering that they have (great) shops we don’t have here. UNFORTUNATELY, I didn’t buy as much as I was expecting. There was a lot on my wishlist, which I really didn’t manage to purchase, however I’m extremely happy with what I got!

P1000992P1000993P1000976I got myself one of these famous ‘chokers’ at a medieval fair, which I’m really in love with it.

P1000983  A little bracelet/anklet, which I bought in one of those amazing, mini souvenir shops.

P1010022P1010018 I bought this rather summerly dress in one of those cheap little stores for like 7€, woohoo.

P1010024 P1010025Skinny, high waisted jeans – Pull&Bear (17,99€)
Belt – Bershka (4,99€)

And that’s all I got; feel free to leave comments, tell me what you liked, what you didn’t like, what I could change, etc. …

See you, pretty faces x

SUMMER OUTFITS

As I’m on holidays right now (at the moment I’m posting this) and as I don’t have internet in the place I’m staying, I decided to prepare a little article in advance, so that I can simply post it some day via my phone, when I’m at a place with internet. This way, my blog doesn’t stay “article free” for a whole month. (hope you somehow understand this little confusion, if not : never mind)
Let’s begin then : this is basically going to be about summer outfits – Oh my God, for real?! I bet you didn’t see that coming lol – ; I made up some Polyvores (?), which I hadn’t done for quite a long time now. Was fun!, so here we go….

CHILLY SUMMER OUTFIT:

You surely know those summer days, where it’s hot but still quite fresh and where you then don’t really feel like showing too much skin.

This is it, I could keep going BUT unfortunately I don’t really have time anymore and believe me : you do need time (and patience!!) to create polyvores! If you’re feeling really bored right now or whenever, just visit this site and free your imagination (you will be sent to the site as soon as you click the word Polyvores right at the beginning of this article).

Hope you’re having great holidays,
see you soon,
xoxo ♡

SUMMER WISHLIST

Is it my birthday? No. Is it christmas yet? No.
There’s just a lot I’ve been wanting lately, so why not share it with you?!

BACKPACK:

ASOS  Backpack with Double Buckle Detail

Backpacks can be so useful during summer when you’re going out with friends, to the beach for example or if you’re simply on holidays, visiting a new city or so : you can carry your bottle of water with you, a camera, whatever you want, while always keeping your (sweaty?) hands free to hold your ice cream! + it looks super cute/cool.

BIKINI:

   Blue Geo Print Bandeau Bikini Top    Black Watermelon Print Bikini Bottoms

Summer obviously also means : beach and/or pool. Therefore, we need a pretty bikini! Personally, I always just own one bikini per summer, as I never go to the pool and just once – if I’m lucky - to the beach. My current bikini is made of a simple black bottom and a white & black top, but this year, I’m really liking “fruity” and flowered bikinis, so bring in the colour!

DRESSES:

Jessica Rose Smock Dress

This summer I’m really into simple, “large” dresses, which look extremely cute. To make your outfit look like something special, you just need the right shoes and some accessories (like long necklaces, hats, etc. …).

KIMONO:

Anabel Monochrome Rose Print Tassel Kimono

Pheobe Floral Print Tassel Kimono

Kimonos, the best thing for summer. They’re thin, so they won’t keep you too hot and they’ll make your outfit look amazing. Just imagine, you can go all black/white with a flowered kimono, which will make it look fabulous. (I had seen that first one quite a long time ago, but my mom didn’t want me to buy it *sad face*)

I want some “lace socks” so badly, because they don’t just look cute, they’re perfect to wear with my jellies which I wore the other day for the very first time and which destroyed my feet lol!

There’s muuuuuch more I want to be honest, but ey, ain’t nobody got money fo’ that unfortunately.
Have a nice summer, filled with sun, love and fun!
