Travel tales

Look at those cool scooter chairs!

I'm back! London was great. Beautiful weather, good shops and very nice restaurants and bars! Thanks so much for the good tips, I printed them out and they were extremely helpful!

Obviously we were very surprised to hear about MJ, especially since my boyfriend is a very big fan (he was also going to the concert in London). Also the trip back was very hectic, haha! We were still stuck in traffic by the time our gate closed! 15 minutes after that we were running through the airport like mad men (I even took off my shoes!) and were lucky enough to be given access to the plain. What an adventure!
I bought some very nice things, like the Topshop skirt in the first picture, a topshop skinny jeans, a zara T, a black zip skirt, a nailpolish, a very cute silver necklace by COS - that I've already lost :( - and some fashion magazines. I personally think the UK has (some of) the best fashion magazines! There will be some pictures of what I bought later!

London calling!

Dear readers, I'm off to London! Super excited. For now, I wanted to show you my latest purchases. The shirt is inside out (that's not accidental, it was made that way) which gives such a fun touch. And these shorts have the perfect worn / bleached look. Since it will be very warm in London, according to the weather forecast, I'm taking these babies with me!

Thanks for always leaving such sweet comments and expect a big post when I get back!

Rocking reptile

Snake print is not for everyone, but I personally think it can be very nice when combined well. This blazer had been hanging in my closet for about two months. The weather didn´t allow me to wear it yet because the fabric is pretty thin. It has black leather lining, very cool.

Look at choo

Jimmy Choo is the next guest designer to work with H&M! I couldn't be more excited. I love the belt! The collection hits the stores mid November.
ps. I'm going to London in a week! Do you know any nice places to eat or to have drinks? And good places to shop or something I should definately go see? I'd love to hear it!

Can you keep a secret?

Yesterday was fun! My friend Jes and I went to a t-shirt presentation, sat on a rooftop terrace, grabbed some food and went to the movies. She told me about a place where they sell tiny silver ear studs so I bought a few. I also bought doubles (I know, I went a little crazy) because I always lose those little ones. The ring is a gift from my boyfriend, it's so cute!

I also got the book Post Secret. A guy named Warren asked people to make him a personal postcard with a secret they had never told anyone before. He received piles and piles of cards, and published some of them. It's dark, it's shocking and it's fun. Also check out Warrens website: http://www.postsecret.com/

. Thank you for the awards and Look 10, thank you for featuring me!

All that glitters is not gold

As I promised yesterday, here is an outfit with my new sequin blazer. I decided to glam rock the hell out of it, pairing it with leather leggings, a long white t and my mom's patent DSquared buckle booties.

Kiss and make-up

Someone asked me how I do my make up, so I thought it might be nice to show you my daily products & routine.

1) Lightly I brush i.d. BareMinerals facial powder in color Fairly light over my face.
2) Then I use a MAC eyeshadow as bronzer. Unusual, but it's the perfect color for me :P .
3) Third I use Ariane Inden cover stick if I need it.
4) Next, I put on L'oréal Collagene mascara and black eyeliner
5) Depending on my mood I make a more natural brown smokey eye with a Dior shadow palette (Earth reflection) or a darker black and grey one with a Rimmel London palette (Smokey noir).
6) I often use a small amount of highlighter above my cheekbones and some blusher on my cheeks, but I forgot those at my parents place.
7) Then some more mascara and I often finish with lip balm or a deep pink or nude gloss, this one from h&m is a perfect nude and incredibly cheap!

ps. tomorrow I´ll probably make an outfit with the sequin blazer!

Birthday beauties

Yesterday was great! It was a really nice birthday with very good presents, like this sequin blazer from Zara. It reminds me of those gorgeous Balmain blazers that I wish I could afford. The color is darker, but the camera flash made it light up.

There will be an outfit very soon, but I'm at my parents place for a few days :)
The little bag is also from Zara, that was a gift from myself ;) Also, I passed all of my exams! Hope you had a great weekend too!
