Lazy Days

I'm wearing:
Blouse / H&M
Necklace / Six
Skirt / Asos
Slippers / New Look

(I'm sorry that these photos are a little bit repetitive. There was no one near to help me make some photos this time)
Not being able to walk sucks. I spent three days in a row at home and it was so boring I tell you. I didn't even bother to change my clothes, because I couldn't even leave my house, every step hurt. I hate to be at home such a long time. Boredom leads to Laziness in my case. All I did was lying in my bed and watching Breaking Bad, Youtube Videos and flicking through various Online Shops. If I had a credit card, I would be broke by now, I found so many great online stores with amazing clothes! Next week I'll get my hands on a credit card and then I'm gonna place some orders. 
I feel like I'm spending way too much time on my laptop/cell phone these days. And I kinda have the feeling that my eyes got worse. I need to stop taking my cell phone with me to places, where I don't need to have it with me. The other day I caught myself taking my phone to the shower. I was watching a video on youtube and for a second I thought that I could place my phone next to the shower on the tray, so that I could continue watching the video while showering. I soon realised how stupid that was. The phone is the first thing that I grab at in the morning when I wake up. I don't want to be hooked on technology but I am. It's really sad how people feel less lonely when they have their phone switched on, but this is how society is working nowadays. But what am I complaining. Without technology, computers wouldn't exist, there would be no internet and no blogs! That would be even more sad.

On Tuesday I accidentally dropped an iron bar on my feet while working out and my big toe got really badly injured. I went to the doctor yesterday and fortunately she told me that it wasn't broken but just pretty swollen. It's really hard for me to walk, that's why I'm staying at home. I guess this is the punishment for skipping school the other day. If I hadn't skipped school, I wouldn't have had the time to work out and as a result wouldn't have injured my big toe. I've been spending whole days at home, trying to walk as little as possible. I'm missing out on the sunniest days these week, which is really a shame. But I finally found time to watch Breaking Bad and I also found time to create this monthly moodboard here.

How I style #1

I'm wearing:
Shirt / Vero Moda
Bag / Vintage

I'm wearing:
Denim Shirt / H&M
Bag / Zara

I'm wearing:
Leather Jacket / Zara
Lace Top / Zara
Necklace / Six
Bag / University of Art Zurich

Another Segment for my new favorite hobby. I'm starting off the How I Style series with this lovely chiffon polka dot mini. I bought this skirt about two years ago, because I saw it on the sales lady in the store. I think it's so cute and fun to wear and it is a perfect piece to combine with different styles and colors. These are three ways I'd wear this skirt. Did you notice that I like to pull my hair? haha. Out of hundreds of shots, I just had to pick out four with the hair pulling, what a coincidence.

This is my second last week at school. That is why my motivation is slowly fading and also the reason why I'm able to blog this today. I skipped school. It feels so great to sit in front of my laptop in my pajamas at 10 o'clock in the morning. I think my favorite time of the day is between 9-11 a.m and 8-10 p.m. It's the best time of the day because it feels like you've got plenty of time to do things before daily life kicks in/before the day ends. Now I'm gonna sit back, drink a cup of tea and watch some tv series.

Daily Makeup

In this post I decided to show you my daily makeup routine. As you can see, I'm not particularly good at it, I don't see myself as an expert or anything like that. I just like to have fun with makeup and play around with different colors and looks.
Two Years ago my friends gifted me my very first mac lipstick. That was the moment when I started to really have interest in makeup. At the beginning I remember feeling very uncomfortable about wearing lipsticks to school or to the city. It was something completely new to me. Now I can't leave the house without a color on my lips! Funny, how things change with time.
I consider myself an obsessive makeup tutorials viewer (Sometimes it's the first thing that I do in the morning and the last thing I do before falling asleep) and my lipstick and makeup collection has grown ever since. Before I would spend my money on clothes and accessories, lately I've only been splurging on makeup products. That is mainly the reason why I find my closet useless these days.

Sunny Sunday

I'm wearing:
Blouse / American Apparel
Pants / Zara
Shoes / Converse
Watch / Casio
Gold Arm Cuffs / Tibetan Store

The weather is gorgeous since last saturday. I really missed the warmth of the sun and the heat on my skin. It has been ages since I last was able to leave my house without wearing a jacket. I don't know about you, but I always feel kinda lazy on sunny days. The heat is making me so tired. I just want to lay on the grass and do absolutley nothing. Now that I'm on spring break I can do that. I also feel kinda lazy writing this post. So I apologize myself for not writing that much this time. Next time it'll be more.

8 Things I like

This is a segment that I decided to create for this blog. It's a post about 8 things I like this month. I'm gonna try to do this every single month. Let's see how it'll work out! I chose eight, simply because it's a great number and it's neither too little nor too much.

1. Mindfuck: I'm really into psychological books and podcasts at the moment. It makes me reflect upon my own person, my behaviour and about other people. As the book title already says, this book is about how a lot of people sabotage themselves with their own thoughts and what we can do about it. I haven't read it though, but I'm gonna start as soon as possible. It's in german, but I'm sure that there are english books too.

2. Green Tea: I'm a tea drinker. I would choose tea over coffee at any times. I drink tea in the morning, afternoon, before bed, when I'm bored, sick, happy, to digest the food I ate, after I've eaten something really naughty like chocolate - basically I drink tea all the time.

3. Benefits Pore fessional: This is a primer that my sister bought in London. I always apply it on my T-Zone, because this is where I get most oily throughout the day. I like how it smoothes out my skin. Unfortunatley Switzerland doesn't sell any Benefits products anymore. I was kinda upset when I found out.

4. Thierry Mugler "Alien": This is the scent that I'm wearing at the moment. I absolutely love this perfume. It smells of amber, woods and flowers and makes me feel so pretty.

5. Vichy Normaderm 3 in 1: I'm glad that my friend Christine recommended this face wash/peeling to me. It is the first peeling that feels grainy on my skin when I rub it in. I've been using this one for almost three weeks now and I think it really frees my skin from dirt and makeup and at the same time it has a renewing impact on my skin, which in my opinion, should be the effect of every good skin wash product.

6. MAC Studio Fix Powder NW44: Before some of you MAC and Makeup experts freak out - Yes, I know that this powder is supposed to be for dark skinned ladies. But you should know that I don't use it as Powder and Foundation. I use it as a contour color for my cheek bones and the temples of my forehead. I just bought it two days ago and I'm already lovin it. Everybody should own a contour powder!

7. MAC Cream Colour Base in "Pearl": Finally I layed my hands on a highlighter! For that nice healthy and glamorous glow on your brow and cheek bones.

8. The last one is a song that I really like at the moment. And I've been listening to "She" by Tyler the Creator a lot recently.

Wrapped up in Coziness

I'm wearing:
Cardigan / Second Hand
Top / Insight through Kantine
Pants / Zara
Boots / Mango

When I found this sweater last year I couldn't be happier, because I've always wanted a fluffy and cozy cardigan to wear over my t-shirts and tops, that need a little extra fabric to keep me warm. I have a love for anything snuggly and oversized, because they're just so easy to combine with other pieces in my wardrobe. The shoes that I'm wearing are actually very decomposed. One of the buckles fell off and there are paint drips all over the boots. I once wore them in painting class and I still didn't get round to cleaning it. I'm just so lazy when it comes to cleaning. I just can't motivate myself, because I simply don't like doing it. My room always looks pretty messy compared to my sister and brother's room. Maybe it's because I'm the creative one among us three. Or maybe this is just a lame excuse.

Morning Activities

When I woke up today the sun shone through my leaky shutters. I thought the sun had disappeared for good. But unfortunately she only showed her face for two hours, before she hid away behind the gigantic clouds again. Whenever I wake up with the sun shining in my face, I am instantly in a good mood. Everything's so positive and perfect in that very moment. So I stood up and walked into the kitchen to pursue my morning ritual which basically consist in making myself  a delicious muesli.
What you'll need:

  • A cup of quark or joghurt 
  • Strawberries
  • Blueberries
  • Dried Fig (for additional sweetness)
  • Oatmeal
Actually you can put anything you like in your muesli, it just depends on what you enjoy eating. This is simply my version. I've been eating this for breakfast for the last couple of months, and it still hasn't put me off.

Afterwards I felt like painting my nails in the most vibrant color that I own. I don't do this every morning (obviously). The nail varnish is from American Apparel, I'm sure a lot of you already knew. I had to hide my face because I don't look very appealing in the morning and with no makeup on.
Now I'm gonna chill with a cup of tea and shut off all my electronical devices. I've been staring into the laptop and my phone display far too much and far too long the last few days. I kinda have the feeling that my eyes got worse, everything was so blurry when I went to bed last night. I hope it's just my imagination.

Last Day of Photography Class

I'm wearing:
Scarf  / gift
White Blouse / Mango
Watch / Casio
Skirt / Asos
Shoes / Humanic

I decided to take this blogging thing more seriously. I've been saying this to myself a million times and I never managed to make it. This time I'm gonna try as hard as I can. 
I just had my last photography class on last wednesday and we had the freedom to take any pictures we'd like. So my friend Christine and I decided to make some photos for this blog. I felt a little akward being photographed by someone other than my self-timer or my sister, but she did a great job.  
The art foundation is slowly coming to an end. It feels like yesterday when I walked into class last summer. I guess time passes faster when you're doing something you like and enjoy. When I was at uni I felt like time was running so slowly. And when I think back to my high school years I remember feeling so exhausted by the time, that seemed to have stopped while I was there. I'm happy to have made the right decision when I decided to leave the university. I don't regret my time there, because I've got to know so many cool people and met two of my now most appreciated friends, who I still meet on a weekly basis. On Thursday I got the qualifying examination for art school. I'm feeling all jumpy and shaky by the thought of it. But I just have to get it over and done with. When I think about it I just can't wait for Thursday to come.
