outfit: let 'em talk 'cause we're dancing in this world alone.

i love summer - it's warm, you can drink your lactose free latte macchiato outside, you can wear light clothes in candy colours and wear sunglasses without anybody looking dumb at you XD ... well, not that i really care. nobody should care what other people say, if one's not hurting anybody but just doing one's own thing. lorde knows best. that's why i chose a line of her song 'a world alone' for this outfit post. why caring about other people's opinions if you feel like singing in your car, if you feel like kissing in the rain, if you love harry potter although you're an adult and that's a book series 'only written for children, and you're definitely not a child !!!', ... or if you feel well after being dropped into a pot of candy colours with high class jewellery and black cat eye sunnies with nothing really matching in the eyes of bigoted micropolis inhabitants - why caring about it if that's YOU. so show yourself. BE yourself! you only have one life, and you got to live it to its fullest.

i'm wishing you all a great day

interior love: painting frames white.

today i want to show you another DIY project i have started and finished some time ago. i already reported about my other vintage frame project earlier this year. you might have read about it here: click

now i had some more wooden frames which were made of ordinary and somewhat boring brown wood and i wanted to colour them white, so that they would fit into my kitchen where the colour white somewhat prevailed. 

again i used wood varnish. i have painted with a big brush and a smaller one for the finishing touch. it also didn't take as long as the first time, but now i only had four small photo frames, and i also needed a single layer of varnish.

i must admit that although you're not doing much you've got a very huge change. the look of the frames is so much different and i was very satisfied with the end result.

outfit: this is the beginning of everything you want.

i love this song line from the beautiful intro to boy's fantastic debut album. you might already have heard of it, or them. if not so: do it! immediately. these two ladies are musicians with all their heart and soul and with high ingenuity. and this ingenuity can be heard in each of their 12 titles. in the musical harmonies and in their lyrics, too. 

well, it doesn't happen often that i must admit that i really love EVERY song on an album but it happened with boy.

new in: first primark visit.

today i finally want to show you my new clothings, accessoires and jewellery which i have bought at my first primark visit.

i didn't like most of the apparel because of the low quality which you also have seen while shopping. the pieces i have bought must be those of the highest quality. i don't like clothes which are badly manufactured. that why i mostly stick to mango and comparable brands.

the accessoire departement was my favourite place to be. still many people but oh so many lovely things and such bargain prices! and the quality was much better than the quality of most apparel pieces. especially the sunglasses and hair clips are top-quality manufactured.

i have bought 5 different hair clips, different sunglasses (i especially love the john lennon memory sunnies XD), a white lace maxi dress, britain inspired jewellery, a caroline channing memory pearl necklace, a violet and a green cardigan, a beautiful transparent white lace shirt, a mint green lace dress, striped shorts and high-waisted light blue denim shorts, two flower headbeads, a floral denim jumpsuit, a cute yellow shirt with applied 3D flowers, two floral style hair bows, a new york cropped shirt, a blue and white polka dotted blouse with loose fit, red and white pants for the gym, nude coloured rubber boots with cute golden bow details and flamingo house shoes.

what do you think of my new little treasures?

shopping love: my first primark visit ♥

today i want to show you the impressions of my first primark visit ever. some time ago my best friend chrissi (visit her blog!) asked me if i would like to visit the primark store at the postgalerie in karlsruhe - she wanted to change some dresses and i have never been there, so i said yes. i must say that i haven't been shopping downtown for quite a while, especially on saturdays, because i didn't like the crowds anymore and i rather sticked to online shopping because for a long time i believed it as much more comfortable. but i forgot the fun you can have when shopping with your girls and simply having a good time. 

we went there on a saturday and i have heard quite diverse opinions about primark and the shopping experience there before, so i thought omg this will be hell - and it was, somewhat. but also fascinating. very, very fascinating. people really seemed to turn mad in respect of the huge selection of clothes and those unbelievable low dumping prices, myself somewhat included - i have left the store with two fully packed shopping bags and i spent a three-digit amount of euros ... but what is most important is that i regained my love for going shopping downtown - thanks to primark XD
