SHOOTING: red beret, colour blocking dress, red blazer.





[en] hi peeps! happy new year! today i've got the first outfit post in 2017 for you with my new colour block dress from fashionmia, a red mango blazer, bought second hand at kleiderkreisel.de, my new red beret (which i also have bought at kleiderkreisel.de) and which fits perfectly to my new hair style. and yes, your eyes perception doesn't betray you: it's copper brown, and it's SHORT! 
i simply felt like totally changing my look and i love it! it was the best decision i could have made because my old hairstyle bored me that much and i didn't like to see it in my mirror reflection anymore. it immediately felt natural and now i believe that my hairstyle also matches my character, mood and life. 
what do you think of it?!
oh and by the way i have made my first outfit vid ever - think it turned out quite well, what do you think?

have you ever made outfit vids yourselves?

FESTIVE SEASON: my top 10 favourite christmas songs.





[en] hello my dears. today, on christmas eve, i want to share my favourite top 10 christmas carols and instrumentals with you. some of them are merry, some of them mirror the feelings of the past horrible things that happened all over the world. all of them contain the true meaning of christmas for me: love. love as a light shining through all the times of hardship one has to endure. 'a thrill of hope, the weary world rejoices. for yonder breaks a new and glorious morn'. these lines from my most favourite christmas carol, 'oh holy night', summarizes it all.

i'm wishing a very merry christmas to all of you.

what are your favourite christmas songs of all times?


  1. oh holy night - nat king cole
  2. a christmas song - nat king cole
  3. i'm dreaming of home from merry christmas
  4. maria durch ein dornwald ging - wiener sängerknaben
  5. walking in the air from the snowman
  6. love actually – love theme
  7. twelve days of christmas - kathleen battle, frederica van stade, andré previn
  8. here come's santa claus – doris day
  9. marys boy child - kathleen battle & co.
  10. cool yule - louis armstrong


[de] hallo meine lieben. am heutigen heilig abend möchte ich meine 10 liebsten weihnachtslieder und instrumentals mit euch teilen. manche sind fröhlich und manche widerspiegeln die schrecklichen ereignisse der vergangenen tage, welche die welt und unseren frieden heimsuchen wollen. aber alle von ihnen werden geprägt von der emotion, welche das weihnachtsfest ausmachen sollte: liebe. liebe als ein licht, das in der dunkelheit leuchtet und welches all die widrigkeiten des lebens ertragbar macht. 'eine aufregende Hoffnung, die von leid getragene welt freut sich, dass ein neuer und prachtvoller morgen anbricht'. diese liedzeilen meines liebsten weihnachtsliedes 'oh holy night' fassen es perfekt zusammen.

frohe weihnachten an euch alle.

was sind eure allerliebsten weihnachtslieder?

SHOPPING LOVE: my latest favourite picks from fashionmia.


[en] hi peeps! today i've got a new post for you featuring my latest favourite picks from the fashion onlinestore fashionmia. this is one of my favourite shop when it comes to feminine apparel with nice prints and creative shapes. the best is that you can make some really great bargains and in most cases you won't have to spend more than 20$ on one dress. in 2015 i have already shared a post with you with some collages showing some of my favourite fashionmia apparel and how to style it in the best way and this year i have finally decided to buy a wonderful emerald green vintage style lace dress and shared it in one of my posts in april 2016. in one of septembers' outfit posts i have showed you my latest fashionmia pick, an orange-coloured vocuhila long shirt in a complementary contrast with some electric blue pants.

today i want to show you my latest picks from the shop. i really love the oversized beige coat and i believe it to be perfect for layering. the black dress with the white sleeve endings and ribbon details reminded me of the elegant monocrome designs of my favourite designer chanel and thus i simply needed to have it! and the print of the colour blocking dress reminded me of mondrian paintings and i guess that it was a perfect catch at 11,95$ - don't you think ... ?!

the quality of the items can be compared to H&M and similar labels and i can recommend this shop to any fashionista who doesn't mind making some really great bargains.

have you already known fashionmia? have you ever purchased something in the shop?

[de] hallo meine lieben! heute habe ich einen neuen post für euch in dem ich euch meine 3 liebsten neuen fundstücke aus dem onlineshop fashionmia zeigen. das ist eine meiner liebsten anlaufstellen wenn ich für günstiges geld tolle kleidung mit ausgefallenen schnitten und in femininen formen kaufen möchte. die preise sind wirklich traumhaft, da man kaum mehr als 20$ (also umgerechnet ca. 18€) für ein kleid ausgeben muss - preise von denen man bei H&M, zara und co. nur träumen kann. in einigen vorigen posts habe ich euch bereits den shop vorgestellt. beispielsweise habe ich 2015 einen post geschaltet mit einigen collagen die jeweils ein fashionmia kleid in kombination mit den perfekten accessoires zeigen. im april 2016 habe ich euch in einem outfit post mein smaragdgrünes spitzenkleid im skaterlook gezeigt und im september ein orange-farbenes vocuhila top in verbindung mit einer ultramarinblauen hose.

heute möchte ich euch meine neuesten lieblingsstücke von fashionmia zeigen. ich liebe den oversized geschnittenen beigefarbenen mantel und glaube, dass er sich als perfekt für layering gestaltet. das schwarze kleid mit den weißen ärmelabschlüssen und schwarzen schleifendetails hat mich direkt an chanel erinnert und gestaltet sich als für mich perfektes must-have. und das colour-blocking bodycon kleid hat mich vom print her sofort an mondrian erinnert. da ich diesen künstler und seine werke sehr liebe, ist das auch ein perfect catch ... und mit 11,95$ (ca. 9€ !!!) mehr als ein schnäppchen - was sagt ihr ... ?!

die qualität der kleider ist vergleichbar mit H&M, die preise allerdings rein gar nicht. ich kann den shop jeder fashionista empfehlen, die aber nicht immer ein vermögen für das perfekte kleid ausgeben mag.

kennt ihr bereits fashionmia und habt ihr schon mal im shop eingekauft?

#bloggermeeting adventskalender - INSPIRATION: 101 things in 1001 days.



[en] hello my dears. this years coming to an end very soon and ... to be honest i'm quite happy that it's just like that. too many horrible things have happened within the course of this year. in terms of world affairs just think of the new years eve of horror for many thousands of women and girls in cologne. think of great britains' exit from the european union. think of populists all over the world coming to power, of growing hate and right-wing thoughts, of paris and belgium, of turkey and the krim, of syria and, not just since yesterday, of germany. the witch-hunt against the south korean female president, a misogynist and openly right-winged president in the USA.

and in terms of my personal life my life very early had a bad start. i don't want to write too much about it, because this would be getting too personal. i can just say that it was a nightmare. and yet, there were some moments compensating many of the bad ones this year. after a long time of contact termination me and my mum reunited and managed to have a much more open dialogue and gained a deeper connection than ever before. i got to know many interesting people and new friends i don't want to miss in my life anymore. i reached 15k on instagram and got the possibility of some new and very inspiring blogger cooperations. i have visited london for the very first time with a very good friend of mine and next year there will be many more interesting blog collabs to follow. and, after a very hard time together, i have found a new friend. a friend for life and i thank god for this beautiful present.

well and i also have made up my mind about some things in my life that just don't go right - after a long period of desperation - and that i need to change some things to make it better. also in terms of work ...

you know that life can be very hard at times ... and that you will more often experience bad days than good ones.

but it's also true that, well, it's the bad times that will make you stronger and which also will make you more aware to appreciate the small happy moments. it is these very moments that make our lives worthwhile.

the auther and writer Robert Frost also knew that 'happiness makes up in height for what it lacks in length'. and oh how well does that fit into my very personal life this year.

but human beings are able to transform their lives to the better, if they are willing to do so.

so why not trying to multiply the chances of happy moments by actively planning them?

that's why i love the idea of '101 things in 1001 days'. a personal list of 101 preset personal tasks in a period of 1001 days which can help you to approach life more awarely and to seize the day to the fullest!

the expression of 'things' might be a bit deceptive because the focus of course in all about moments, experiences and not actually material 'things' which can only make you happy for a very short moment and it's the moments which will linger in your hearts and which will create memories that will stay in your hearts forever.

let's get active in creating and re-creating our future. why wait for sth. to happen when you can immediately start making it happen yourself?

i hope this post to be inspirational for many of you, my dear fellow readers, and i would love you to comment below if i inspired you to create your own personal '101 things in 1001 days'.
