current obsession: you tube hair styling tutorials

i never was the one to spend hours on you tube… but from time to time i use it to get an inspiration for hair styling (already showed you the casual sock bun that i still do a lot: and right now i am really into it.

it all started when i read in a magazine how to make the fishtail braid, but the description and pictures where a bit confusing… so i entered it in you tube and taaadaaa a very simple tutorial came up:

i really prefer those kinds of tutorials that are simple and clean, like the ones from the beauty department:

and maybe i will also learn how to use the curling iron that i possess since 2 year, but never used, simply as i don’t know exactly how and burnt myself once…
but i really want to have those loose curls, and it looks so simple!

so if you have time, and if you are interested in some new and easy hair do’s – check it out! 
it’s really worth it :-D

current obsession: ox blood

seriously – i really have to restrain myself, otherwise i would by ANYTHING in this color!!
right now i am totally in love with ox blood.
and i have the feeling that you can combine it with any other color:
black and white (sure…), dark green, crème, nude, rose, cheetah prints, etc.
by now i already have a serious collection… hopefully i still wear this color next f/w season…
here are some items i call mine – and i am still contemplating for a leggings, another pants and a bag… typically me – i have to have it all…it’s like an addiction!

back in the mud

... well... not that bad, i have to admit... the wheather is still quite good for end of november... but anyway... nothing compared to hawaii!!!
what can i tell you... 3,5 weeks of sunshine, perfect beaches, palm trees and all kinds of beautiful jungle plants, surfing, stand up paddling, zip lining, comfort food, etc...
i really miss this!! 
especially the hang loose attitude that was so well present, so enjoyable and oh so contagious!
here are some impressions:

i' am off...

hula dancing... :-)

the next 3,5 weeks i will be in hawaii!!!
our honeymoon!! so excited!

currently craving: chunky knits!

funny – last year i did not even like to wear sweaters!
and know i can’t seem to get enough of the chunky knits – my latest obsession!
especially when they are long and have some glitzy details…
in the meantime i don’t even have enough space in my closet, as chunky knits are not very space-saving… and my collection is steadily growing… and winter has not yet arrived…

what i got AdR...

so... as already mentioned i surely could not resist to hit the stores last thursday evening! 
i was really surprised to find the whole collection still available...
and this is what i got:

... the sunnies were totally unexpected! 
actually i was only focused on bracelets...

i am totally amazed by the crocodile bracelet! i am wearing it today already!

the snake bracelet for me is more for summer, because of its color.
the quality is not so good - it is a bit loose at the snake head... and of course i discovered that only when i was home already.
so the plan was to exchange it.
but when i entered the store monday evening, it looked like this collection never happened. i could not find one single blue box left...

moka picchu

... that's what my bff called the ethno / aztec inspired skirt that i bought at zara... 

i am wearing it today for the first time - and i really like the design!
i pared it with a thin black sweater, black tights and black boots.

i am also thinking about getting the jacket, too... but maybe i wait for sale... ;-)

r u excided??

this thursday the accessories collection from anna dello russo will hit the h&m stores…
as she is known for her extravagancy, what do you think about the collection?
will it be such a hype again??

i will definitely have a look at it!! 
i want to check out some of the bracelets – the animal ones… 
hopefully they are still available in the stores when i get there – after work… ;-)

ago e rita

last Friday in italy we were partying up!
first we went to ago e rita!

i can only recommend this location to you when you are around! it is so great and actually very low key!
it is a very special concept that is absolutely brilliant:
no menu to choose from and dancing on the tables!
when you arrive (and you have to reserve a table!) you have already some wine, water and veggie sticks on the table!
after the healthy snack they serve you 2 different pastas and one risotto. If it is not enough you can always ask for a refill – but there is another course to come!
super delicious razor thin cut prosciutto and salami is provided on the tables.
coming with freshly baked bread and some spreads including – as we are in italy – nutella as kind of representing the desert.
of course the wine is also on refill ;-)
after you have eaten they serve some sorbet, espresso and yummy limoncello.
then the dancing starts!
they clear the table and you can feel free to dance on the benches, the tables or just on the floor!
it was soooo much fun! the wine, the food and the dancing!
earlier this year i had my bachelor party at the ago e rita and it was spectacular!

on our way home we stopped at the primo life club.
nice location with a very nice roof top - but the do not play my kind of music...

last weekend...

i spent in lazise at the wonderful lago di garda – me and 14 girls made a trip for an extended weekend!
it was just great! the weather is still hot and the food was great – as always in italy!!
at the residence la margherita we had 2 apartments and a great pool where I spent the whole saturday relaxing in the sun, doing nothing than reading and sunbathing!
i did not even feel the urge of shopping… 
i just enjoyed the warm sun and the laziness :-)

obsession: high top sneakers

it took a while for me to chum up with the high top sneakers, and i hesitated when buying my fist ones in UK at topshop - i went in and out of the shop like three times and tried them on twice before taking them with me... 

and now: what can i say - i totally love the trend!
the shoes are very comfy and they are not as blunt as normal sneakers.
here are the additions i plan to buy:

and yes, i go for the cheapies...

fake it

one of the few beauty treatments that i undergo on a regular basis is lash extensions!
i tried it for the wedding as my natural lashes are only very short and nearly invisible when not wearing tons of mascara…
i have to admit that i was very skeptical when i entered the studio for the first time.
but what can I say – after 1,5 h and 35 euros i have beautiful, long and voluminous lashes!
i was so thrilled with the result that i keep indulging myself with this luxury.
it just looks so perfect and natural – without any mascara or eyeliner.
but see for yourself:

hard to get...

… or to be more precisely: impossible to get…

apparently no store in munich is selling them…?!
for a while now I am searching the internet where to get these gorgeous celine 'audrey' sunnies…
but it seems totally impossible – and I always thought of myself as an experienced online shopper…
so any idea how I could get my hands on these:

major bling...

while looking around for the peplum thing - a huge bling caught my attention...
i already knew it from some fashion blogs and after circling it about 3 times, i finally made my way to the check-out!
of course with the major bling in my hand!!
i am still not sure if i ever will wear it - 'cause honestly - it's huge... 
but i know i would have kicked myself if i hadn't bought it and its sold out a few days later... 'cause then i really need to have it... i know... addicted... 8-)
anyway, now mine:


for sure one of the next things i will buy!
these ones are from zara:

such a great word!!

familiy means nobody gets left behind or forgotten.

... thinking about getting it inked on my arm...

summer must have!!

one of the most important summer must haves for me are pedicured toes!! 
it is also a summer trend that will never go out of fashion!!
it just looks perfect & neat in every situation:
in peep toes, sandals or just barefoot!
this summer i discovered gel nails for my toes  - french style and i absolutely love it! for ~ 4 weeks my toes look perfectly manicured! 
i can totally recommend this :-)

on the hunt...

yesterday i saw the yellow tweed jacket from zara on a tv show (PLL) and now – i have to have it!
typically me…!
i could kick myself for not buying it when i saw it in the stores…though i did consider it!
now i have to hunt in down on ebay… but i still haven’t found my size…
so i have to be patient… unfortunately not one of my strength…
