Blue Mermaid

 I thought I'd go for a bit more colorblocking and clashing to brighten up these incredibly snowy and cold days. The winter and definitely the snow has been overdoing it a bit this year I think, we are only a few days away from march and by then, please make it all melt away and be replaced by sun.
As for the outfit, especially the vibrant cardigan has been doing a good job in lifting my mood, really love the cobalt color and I think it goes quite well with my skirt, no?
Bundle up well lovelies!

New In: Beauty

As I had mentioned before I am trying to invest into beauty more than into clothes as I am definitely not lacking in that department anymore.
A week or so ago the monthly glossybox arrived. I won't go into detail about the products, I think you can get an idea from the pictures but I was less than thrilled by the content and to make a long story short, I cancelled my subscription with that brand upon receiving the box. My make-up drawer is overflowing with the products/samples they sent me, because I was rarely ecstatic to try their brands. Farewell, Glossybox!
To the more exciting stuff. Recently placed an online order and these beauties arrived last week at my humble home. Benefit's Finding Mr. Bright a box with cute sample sizes of some of Benefit's highly coveted products, such as their highlighter and cheek tint. Been dying to get my hands on those products and can't wait to try them out.
Also new in my lipstick collection is Mac's Plumful. I am a sucker for MAC lipsticks, this one is the fifth one in my collection and I think this is only the beginning. The color payoff is stunning and I have been hearing praises on this one from Youtube gurus left and right so that should be a good sign. So far, I love it.
 And last but not least, you should know this one: Urban Decay's Naked Palette. It's been on my wishlist for months now, and how could it not, that palette has been praised to the heavens, I just had to get it, and it really did not disappoint. Been using the palette almost every single day and the colors are just beautiful and easy on the eyes. Literally. Got it as a birthday gift, so thank you, you know who you are :))

Honestly I used to be a complete noob when it comes to make-up, but thanks to Youtube and all of the fabulous make-up gurus I've been learning the 101 on make up and brands to try. I already have my eyes on the next beauty products, but honestly high end make up is so expensive man.But it is really worth it's price most of the time, that's for sure.

Comfort is Key

Just a simple everyday look, with one of my favorite knit jumpers. Finally on semester break, I'll be taking it slow now, sleeping in and just chilling mad.

Current Wanties

Current favorites

Current favorites von impressthepressblog, white athletic shoes enthaltend

Need those in my life right now:
- Houndstooth pattern: I have been looking around practically everywhere for ages for a nice black and white houndstooth patterned sweater/cardigan and have yet to find the perfect one. I am on a clothing shopping ban, but this is the one item that I NEED in my closet.   
  Yves Saint Laurent: My strategy is, since I won't be spending unneccessary amounts of money on clothing I might as well invest in good quality make up. I was always the drugstore type of girl, and really I had a good reason to, these high end brands are frickin' expensive! But I think if it comes to sensitive areas like your skin, it can't hurt to go for quality once in a while. On my list are the Le Teint Touche Éclat foundation as well as one of their beautiful lipsticks. I will spoil myself, but it definitely won't be both at the same time, or else I might get reasonable again. 
 - Nike Free running shoes: One of my new year's resolution is to work out. I am such a lazy bum and my stamina has gone down the drain. I figured by buying suitable sportswear my motivation level might take a heap as much as my bank account will take a fall.

And lastly the probably cheapest but prettiest bit out of the bunch. Fresh tulips. They are hands down one of my favorite flowers and they just instantly lift my mood into spring and sun and freshness. I got a beautiful bouquet from my bf for valentine's day and I will fill the apartment with even more, once they've grown even more beautiful. 

That being said, I don't think I will ever escape this cycle of consumerism.Sigh.

Details of Bert

A little dose of sesame street today in form of my wacky Bert jumper. I added this new khaki tweed jacket to give the whole thing a bit more elegance and girliness and of course to provide an extra layer of warmth which is really a necessity considering the horrible weather recently.
 In love with that two-tone jacket thing, I don't think I can have enough variations of that color combination.

Valentine's Day

via weheartit

It's that time again where lovers unite and lonesome souls drown in their misery of loneliness and despair. Just kidding.They are probably just cursing the sickenly cute loveydovey birds around them.

This year around the bf and I both have to work on V-Day so we decided to celebrate one day early and it was really lovely. If you don't know what to do on Valentine's day here's what we did. No foolproof plan but a wonderful one, at least in my eyes.

The day started out perfectly with heart shaped eggs, sunny side up, a hearty bavarian "Weißwurst" breakfast, our current favorite and matching cups.

After a filling breakfast we got a bit domestic by baking this lovely heart shaped cherry cheese cake (which was super easy thanks to the baking mixture, I know laazyy).

My plan was to study for exams after but I got a bit carried away with this adorable heart nail manicure that I watched on Michelle Phan's channel. Unfortunately I am not as great an artist as her, so the nails are less than perfect, but hey it's still cute right :)
My ootd for dinner time. I chose to go with a red theme, inspired by love, hearts and all of that jazz.

And lastly our lavish dinner. Japanese at my favorite place in the world :) Starting the day with food, ending it with food, that's how I like it.
I had a wonderful pre-Valentine's Day with my valentine, couldn't have been better.

What are you guys up to on Valentine's day? Spending it with your significant other or chilling on a GALentine's day with the girls?

Anyways hope you have a good one!

This brown shearling jacket had been collecting dust in my closet for about three years now and I can't remember ever actively wearing it out until last weekend. It's still quite cold around here, with snow coming and going but the thick shearling material has done a pretty good job keeping me warm. Kept the rest of the outfit quite casual and roomy, since we had a succulent feast at my dad's for lunar new year. Happy Lunar New Year to everyone celebrating by the way!

HUGE collective Haul

 ZARA: moustache flats, studded pleather skirt, studded velvet blazer, speckled sweater, sequined harem pants
 H&M: floral jacket, cobalt blue gloves, cardigan, silk morning gown
 MANGO: contrast sleeves jacket, black peplum top
Miscellaneous: ASOS sunglasses chain, YOURSTAR nailpolish,LUSH "Christmas Eve" bath, MAC "Vegas Volt"
Miscellaneous II: ACCESSORIZE tote, ZARA scarf, GÖRTZ boots
I wasn't lying, I did SO MUCH shopping during the last two months or so. And yes it was mainly due to the massive sales going on during and after christmas time, I just couldn't resist. But now that the sale is winding down I am going on a strict shopping ban. No more indulging and impulse buys, I am saving up for some quality items and also for holiday so I will have to restrain myself. And my closet is practically bursting at the seams anyways so it will only be for the better.

What do you think of my buys, did you go crazy in the sales as well like myself?

Windy Wendy

I don't know what to make of the weather anymore. Today might be sunshine and over 10°C and tomorrow snowstorms sweep trough the place again. Right now it's all about rain rain rain, at least at my place, but who knows, maybe tomorrow we can whip out the bikinis again. Okay, that's rather unlikely. Anyways wanted to show you guys my new Zara sweater, it's one of my new favorites, one of the many purchases from my sale shopping extravaganza. A seperate post about all of the stuff I bought lately will be up soon.
Wearing: Zara jumper, h&m button up, necklace,scarf, sheinside coat
Did some outfit pics of the boyfriend as well, his coat is kind of major, isn't it :)

Have a good one, lovelies!
