Don't be afraid

"It is not because things are difficult that we do not dare; it is because we do not dare that they are difficult."
- Seneca

I think many of you heard this quote before and you might ask "Why on earth is she posting it here?"...Well~ for me this quote is really special and I try to live my life with this quote in mind every second BUT it is not that easy to live like that. Because of this tiny and rather annoying voice in your head called "reason" or "common sense" we often give up on things without even trying just because society is teaching us that it is impossible anyways. Therefore growing older and turning into an adult we often throw away dreams or fantasies that are very dear to us only because society tells us that it has no use anyways. But I am asking: Isn't it just the fear that we might fail that lets us throw away precious dreams so easily? Sure, with time we often fail, we might be on the verge of giving up BUT who tells us that these failed attempts are in vain? I decided that even if I fail over and over again I will not give up on my dreams...because as Seneca says things will be out of reach forever if we are not trying to grab them. My advise for you -and probably mostly for myself- don't give up on things just because people say you can't do it...the only one who can stop you is yourself. So, as long as you believe in your dreams: GO FOR IT!

Plush and Hearts

Hello sweeties <3

After reviving the monthly favourites on this blog I thought it would also be a nice idea to show you some of my everyday outfits from time to time. I won't post my outfits every day because that would be rather boring but from time to time I really like the outfits I am wearing to work and I thought "Why not show it to the world?" So, here we go with todays OOTD~

 T-Shirt: Vero Moda - Cardigan: New Look - Jeggings: H&M - Boots: Deichmann - Scarf: NanuNana - Hat: Pimkie

I am so in love with those boots. I first saw them on the Deichmann-homepage and had to have them *_* For the Jeggings I actually thought that they would look absolutely hideous on me but after trying them on I was convinced that they make a nice basic piece in my wardrobe ^^b Bought two spare ones today at H&M for only 14,95EUR each ^^v

Have a nice evening~

February Favourites~

Good Morning sweeties <3

February is nearly over and I thought I could revive my monthly favourites. I kinda forgot to post them in December and January as I was to busy or just to confused to do it xD So lets start again *yay*

Zoeva

Hello again my sweeties <3

OMG~ I have so many things I want to post about but not really much time at the moment ^^" Today I want to talk about a brand that I just recently encountered :3 It is called Zoeva and I am totally in love with their products <3 They are selling make-up and also the brushes to apply it with ;) I got myself a brush set and a set of 12 eyeliner pencils. I will post an in-depth review about the products here later, for now I just want to make your mouths drool with some pictures *hehe*
The Graphic Eyes+ Box <3 <3 <3 I paid 32 EUR for it and I am so in love with the liners. The colors are just gorgeous~
Included in the box is a sharpener and a little booklet describing all the colors, which are totally awesome <3 Unfortunately the set is Limited Edition. You can buy each pencil seperately though...so if you don't get the box you can still get each eyeliner on its own ^^
I really really needed some brushes for every thing and so I decided to get the Bamboo-Set from Zoeva :) I am really pleased with nearly all the brushes...I hope I will come around to do a review this weekend ;)
Brushes for every part of the face...and some brushes I never knew existed xD The design is really nice and kinda summery ^^b And I only pad 25 EUR for all 12 brushes *yay*
 
So, my first impression of Zoeva after using the products for around one week: I can highly recommend buying from them. Especially the brushes and eyeliner are great so far. I will definitely buy more from them in the future ^o^

For reviews please go to the beauty blog I am currently writing with some dear friends. I hope I can put both reviews up as soon as possible ^^

Icing Dancing Cake

Hello sweeties <3

And another print will probably find it's way on to my wishlist *hahaha* I first saw it on Vanilla's Traumfabrik yesterday and did not really know if I should like it or not. After contemplating about it and visiting Baby's homepage a view times I decided that it is a perfect print for spring. The print I am talking about is Icing Dancing Cake by Baby the Stars shine bright :)
Two JSK-version and I like both :) Although I have to say that I like the left version a tad more just because I am a fan of the lace-part at the top :3
 
 
I really, really love the print <3 Reminds me of picnic in the park in spring...some people might think the print is overloaded but I think it is just right ;)

What do you think? Would you go for it or rather not? What new print are you lusting for at the moment?

Have a nice day~

Faber Castell

Hello sweeties <3

Sorry for not posting for nearly one week m(_._)m I just haven't gotten around posting about last weekend ^^"
Jessy and Me waiting for the others to arrive at the castle :)
Last Sunday I was finally able to see my girls from Franconia again as we had a meet-up near Nuremberg at the castle Faber Castell. As we were five people from the Stuttgart area we went there by car this time. Still I already had to leave the house at 8:30 in the morning. We all met up at Stuttgart mainstation and than directly drove to the castle to meet up the others. There we had a guided tour through the rooms...unfortunately we were not allowed to take pictures inside T^T Some of the rooms were really pretty and would have made a great scenery though.

NAKED *O*

Hello sweeties <3

Sorry for my absence over the last few days but work was busy and yesterday I attended a farewell-party with my company. Sadly one of our most able engineers is leaving for Japan after 10 years, so we all went to Stuttgart and had a great meal together...aaaand I also could polish my Japanese skills as we talked in Japanese the whole evening *yay*

But actually I don't want to talk about my week...as you might guess I did some shopping again and one of the items on my wishlist found its way to my doorstep ;)

*tadaaaaaa* Meet the awesome Naked Palette by Urban Decay <3
The case is made of some velvet-like material...so lovely <3 And with every Naked 1 Palette comes the famous Primer Potion :3
The colors are really awesome <3 ANM
If you are interested in a review about that palette [and other beauty products] you can visit Beauty Talk, a blog I set up with some dear friends just to talk about beauty, do reviews and beauty tutorials. We would be really happy if you would like to follow us there m(_._)m

Working Me

Hello sweeties <3

The last to days I felt really good in the mornings, not the usual "meh, I don't want to get out of bed!" and so I decided I'd dress a little more "fancy" for work xD And as it goes, I want to show you those outfits *haha* But excuse the horrible quality...I still don't have a better camera yet and when I start to work it is half-dark outside xD"

Friday-Outfit
Dress: H&M - Boots: Deichmann - Tights/Turtleneck: H&M - Scarfthingy: present - Headbow F+F - Necklace/Earrings: Bijou Brigitte
After work I went shopping with a friend and I decided I wanted to wear a dress for that occassion...but it also had to be appropriate for work. So this is the outfit I came up with *hehe*

Monday Outfit
Pullover/Skirt: J.Honeys - Turtleneck/Tights: H&M - Boots: Deichmann - Earrings: SIX
It kinda looks schoolgirl-inspired and kinda not xD I loved that style while I was in Japan and still wear it from time to time :) And I love those boots...so warm and comfy, it was love at first sight *hahaha*

I wish you all a very nice Tuesday~

Douglas and dm again~

Hello sweeties <3

Yes, I am addicted...everytime I set foot into a drugstore I HAVE to get something...it is really ridicoulous but what can I do, I love makeup and beauty stuff just too much. Well, one year ago I would never have thought that I would buy so much make-up...I would have laughed about the mere thought of it but look at me now *hahaha*

So, last week I went to dm again and well, you know what happened, I couldn't leave without some small things ^^"

Blurry picture is blurry...I need to get a new camera so badly X.x

Awesome swap with the UK

Hello sweeties <3

Saturday was really a great day, not only did we get the chance to speak at the Shinnenkai in Stuttgart, I also received my swap package from the UK.

I am so stoked about everything <3

新年会 - Welcoming the new year in Japanese ;)

Hello sweeties <3

On Saturday the local Lolita group was invited to yet another special occasion. For the Shinnenkai (New Years Party) of the German-Japanese Society in Stuttgart our group was invited to hold a speach about our favourite fashion. We were all really excited and although not everything went as planned and some plans had to be changed the event was a success and we were complimented for our outfits by the audience ^^ I think we gave them a closer understanding about the fashion and that Japan isn't only tea ceremony, ikebana and "traditional japanese arts" but that it also has a rich youth culture that you shouldn't overlook when learning about Japan.



My outfit for the occasion was something hime-inspired - I call it Sweet Hime Lolita...but you can call it what you want *haha*
 Mirror-Shot...I love my new mirror so much that it nearly is silly xD 

Outfit-Rundown:
OP: Angelic Pretty "Powder Rose" - Tights: Ernstings Family - Shoes: Lovelyshoes - Wig: Lockshop - Accessories: bought at Kaufland xD" - Rose: H&M - Crown: Claire's - Earrings: Vanilla's Traumfabrik
