Birthday Wishlist

Birthday Wishlist

Birthday Wishlist von impressthepressblog, leather wallets enthaltend

Today in a week is my belated 22nd birthday and apart from the woes of growing one year older and taking one step towards the dreaded 3+, midlife crisis-ensuing number, there are lots of things to be excited about. Number one for me definitely is to get to spend my special day with the people I love and adore, my lovely friends and family. This year, I am most excited to get together during yummy dinner and drinks and to just catch up with my friends and share some good laughs over delicious food. 

Of course, like every year, there are a few bits and pieces I compile in my birthday wishlist and similar to my christmas wishlist, I threw them all in a nice collage here.
 1 Ipad Mini 16GB  : This baby will actually be a birthday present from me to myself. It's so much more convenient than my old, dusty laptop and much bigger and better than my crappy, semi-broken Ipod Touch.
2 Ipad Mini case: That is kind of a given, my new baby will need a comfy and stylish cover, preferably in a bright and funky color/pattern.
3 WMNS Nike Dunk High Skinny: I need some sturdy work and running around shoes and these are just so funky and fresh, who can resist? Coincidentally, I heard through the grapevine that I'll receive those beauties from my loverboy. The grapevine meaning I went along to the store when he bought them.
4 Miu Miu purse: Been coveting that wallet (in multiple colors) for so long and never had the heart to spend 300€ on it. I might spoil myself with the aid of birthday money, but I might as well settle for a cheaper, yet equally pretty alternative.
5 Urban Decay's Naked Palette: also a long wanted item. It just combines (almost) every eyeshadow color you might need in everyday life.
6 Ikea/any furniture store gift card: I'm in serious need of a new desk and desk chair, since both have long past their best days and I need some new jazz in my room. Once my semester break starts, I'll be seriously furniture shopping.
7 House of Harlow 1960 Sunburst ring: Well, it's pretty.
8 Benefit Go Tropicoral Lip and Cheek Tint: Always wanted to try out the brand and really want to try out the powers of highlighting.
9 Yann Martel's Life of Pi: Really mindblown by the movie, so reading the book is a given.
10 Jewelry hanger: I have so much jewelry, especially necklaces, and I need some cute storage. Found a lovely stand at sixx(jewelry store in germany) which is huge enough to fit all of my crap. Winkwink.
11 3.1. Phillip Lim Burgundy Pashli Satchel: The reason this one is on my wishlist (apart from the fact that it's gorgeous) is that it was off 50% at an online shop. Of course when I checked the website, it was sold out and I doubt that it will come back in stock. But maybe in the summer sales, and when that comes around I will try to make my strike.    

That's on my wishlist this year. If you are a January baby what's on yours?

Blue flower mesh

Can't believe these pictures were only taken two days ago, as it is snowing and snowing outside of my window as we speak. I knew winter would make a late comeback but really, the cold would've been enough, I really don't need the thick layers of snow ruining all of my shoes. Sigh.
Anyways, wore out my new sheinside sweater for a shopping trip, and I love it to bits. Speaking of shopping, I've been doing so much of that, there's going to be a HUGE haul coming up in the next weeks. Just ordered something off the Zara online shop last night at 2am. Oh insomnia, killing my bank account.

Winter has come back to kick us in the butt. I knew that it was too good to be true, that almost spring-ish winter season was bound to be only a short one. These pictures were taken during the weekend, exactly one day before the temperatures dropped below zero again and sunday was one of the coldest days in a few weeks. I hear weather forecasts predicting snow for the next week, so even though I am having a really hard time accepting it, it looks like it's back to thick winter coats and warm sweaters again. Boohoo. :(

Sheinside Order

Sheinside Order

Sheinside Order by impressthepressblog featuring a denim vest

I placed a Sheinside order in the beginning of december and thought I'd show you what I got and share with you my opinion on the store and it's clothing. As you can see I ordered a very Zara-esque jacket with quilted pleather sleeves, a AA 3D flower mesh inspired blue sweater, a christmas sweater and a denim vest.
Let me start with the negative things. The shipping period took quite a long time, around three weeks, which was probably mostly due to the christmas season. Even though the store ships for free internationally, once my package arrived, I had to pay around 20€ in taxes to my postman, which I didn't expect and was slightly taken aback by. You should've seen my expression, not amused.

I did contact Sheinside after I didn't receive my package as soon as I had expected and I have to say that their costumer service is quite good. They answered to my mail very quickly and assured me they would try to send out my parcel asap. I got a little necklace as kind of a recompensation for the waiting period which was also very sweet.

On the quality of the clothing: I really can't complain. The prices of the clothing are more than reasonable and they do really great dupes to stuff that is much more expensive elsewhere. The black jacket I got for around 40€, while the almost exact same one retailed at Zara for 180€. You can do the math.

All in all, I am really satisfied with my order, unfortunately I couldn't wear my Christmas jumper during Christmas, since it arrived too late, but there's always next year. I would love to order more from their website in the future, but I am really not okay with paying additional fees every time I order. Anyone know how I can avoid that? Otherwise, thumbs up to the page, you should check them out if you have time.

Musings in the Dressing Room

The boyfriend and I celebrated our 2 year anniversary past tuesday and we spent a lovely day together. Starting with a shopping trip (where these pictures were taken), we went to grab some coffee before watching "Life of Pi" which seriously blew my mind. I have rarely seen such magical cinematography and such grand pictures and the story just touched me to tears. Definite recommendation here.
We ended the wonderful day with the most delicious korean meal. Check out my instagram for more on my daily life.

Here comes the last batch of Instagram pictures of the month december. I must say, I was quite active on Instagram during the last month of the year, mainly due to the various festivities, christmas preparations, food, presents, shopping and all that jazz that has a part in the festive spirits. I have to say, I loved December, it was the warmest Christmas/New Years Eve I have experienced in a while and also the most love-filled one. May the coming months be just as awesome.

We Are Golden

First outfit post of 2013 and to ring the new year in the right way, I thought I'd throw in a bit of gold and glitter here and there. Excuse the facial expressions (or lack of) in  the pics, I swear I was in a good mood, I mean it is the new year, and I am embracing it with enthusiasm and hope for all good things.
My coat by the way, is a new and beloved purchase, but I will post about it and the other clothing I bought later on.

Wearing: sheinside coat, zara top and boots, vintage bowler hat

Happy 2013!

Happy 2013! I wish you all a year full of happiness, success, joy and most importantly health. May all your wishes come true.
I rang in the new year with a bunch of my closest friends, eating really good food, talking, laughing and dancing until 6am in the morning. Couldn't have imagined a better way to start off the new year.
2013, be awesome!!
