do you know bob carey? no? then you should read on. bob is a photographer. when his wife developed cancer, bob started his very own therapy to come to terms with it. he put on a pink tutu and took self portraits in different situations - the grotesqueness of a, let's say 'well-built' man, nearly naked, save for his pink tutu, in mostly urban sequences made not only bob feel better, but also his wife: bob achieved to make her smile. and not only her, but also other cancer sufferers out of her therapy group. the tutu project became a sure-fire success, got shared in social networks and moved people all over the world.
what is special about these photographies is not only that the pictures really make you smile, but also that you realize that while you're watching this man in a pink tutu (which is really a grotesque situation), think about yourself in this world, that you're an individual in a foreign, unknown world, that you might seem alone, but you're actually not, and you can make this world your own, and find your place in there - no matter how different you are, because in fact you're not different, you're exceptional.
... and there's beauty all around you, you just have to open up your eyes to see it.

another outfit from paris! and besides cakes from LeNôtre i'm already craving for macarons from ladurée again XD. the neon yellow dress also has seen berlin some days ago, and i think it will accompany me to many other destinations because i love it so much! it's stylish and i feel comfortable in it. the material is very pleasant to the skin and i love love love the colour! and it's so great to combine. i especially love it with the statement vintage necklace from my mum and my ASOS statement gecko earrings. and of course black accessoires and a black jacket - this time made of leather (the temperatures were a bit warmer back then, 15°C i guess).

as i have told you before there are not so many impressions from berlin because i unfortunately haven't got the possibility to take the time for taking photos. but most of the impressions are burnt in my mind, especially berlin at night ...
but there are some impressions of FOOD - especially wonderful cakes at Le Nôtre inside the KaDeWe departement store, where me and yasmine had DE-LI-CIOUS pistaccio and rose cake and chocolate cake decorated with leaf gold, ... omg my heart skips a beat when i think of it. it was amazing.
you know that i'm a foodie and i love beautiful and delicious food art and this definitely numbered along many other delicacies i already ate.
yasmine also has an onlineshop where you can get high quality argan oil and other moroccan delicacies - you can visit her shop here.
at KaDeWe i also bought presents for my mum, chocolate of course, because she adores it as much as i do (if that's possible, haha XD) ... and now i really would love another piece of Le Nôtre cake - wah XD

hey dears, i'm a bit in frail health (got a cold and i hate it -.-) but despite that i didn't want to keep new photos from you. these were shot in paris this year and i like them a lot - we had nice sunny weather back then and i'm longing for nice warm days and summer. it's way too cold here and i'm sitting in my flat with loads to do and less motivation ... and yeah well, it makes me feel a bit depressed ... but hum. no way out. the show must go on ;) i also wouldn't mind a bit of champagne this night to forget my sorrows - who's also in the mood for that ?! ;)

today i want to show you my wishlist for 2013/2014 - i don't know how many pieces i will be able to buy this or next year.
most of those pieces were in my mind for a long time, especially a black flared wool coat, and the CSC - i also thought about a DSLR but i think i'd now prefer the former. since last year i want to have a nice black leather skater dress, because i love the fitting and i love leather - i also already know how to combine it ... :)
and i'm so so so in love with chanel, which you might already have noticed while reading my profile ... i absolutely adore the label and its founder. the 2.55 was on my imaginary wishlist for a long time and i hope that i can afford one next year. i already owned a pair of vintage versace sunnies years ago, quite similar to the one shown below, but unfortunately i lost it - i was so sad back than :( so i really need another pair.
and since the day my hairdresser straightened my new pony in this wonderful salon in mannheim with a ghd straightener, i want to own one, too :D
and le fabuleux - just stands on it's own, don't you think? for me it's an object of desire since i was a young teen. the symbiosis of white and gold is ultimate luxury, but only if you use high quality materials, and LV definitely worked that out.
i will show you some impressions from berlin the next days, so stay tuned ♥

back from berlin with a bunch of new experiences in my mind and my heart ♥ unfortunately i haven't had the possibility or leisure this time to take many photos - but at least those impressions now are burnt in my mind and won't let me go ... i'll show you some pics we made at the KaDeWe departement store (we ate great cakes at Le Nôtre and i bought some presents for my family there too).
the outfit you can see below finally features my lovely cat bag i've shown you in my latest haul and my already oh so beloved miu miu dress - you've already seen the red one here. i wanted to wear this dress for a special occasion on saturday, but i had been very low on time - or ... i hadn't had the courage to do so ... XD instead, i have worn the neon yellow dress you can see here.
oh berlin ... i'll definitely come back, maybe really soon and i already can't wait ♥

hi dears! i will stay in berlin four days (from friday to monday). i just can't wait! i'm curious - it will be my first time in berlin and i'm so looking forward to it! but i believe that i won't be able to post new stuff to read and see then, but today you can and you might also tomorrow, if i had completed all arrangements for working and packing my suitcase :)
today i want to show you some very, very ... way too gorgeous jewellery i've found at 'i am' when i went for a fashion stroll around the town with a friend of mine. this cross jewellery really remind me of the beautiful D&G collection for fall/winter 13/14 which i adore SO MUCH (but you might already have read about it here) and i really was on the verge of buying ALL of those more-or-less-little beauties! but i told myself that i only should buy one but i simply couldn't decide back then!
thus i wanted to ask YOU: which one do you think would fit me the best? 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 or 6? or all of those? ah, dunno. XD
don't forget to participate in the best of the blogs campaign for december 13 and the harry potter giveaway!

since my mum will marry soon we went into the city to look for for a nice wedding dress. we went to the boutique called 'true love' where i bought my prom dress in 2007 and to another very nice wedding boutique called 'die braut', but in both stores we haven't found the perfect dress for my mum. afterwards we went into our favourite café for coffee and cake. my mum has a clear clear conception of her dream dress. she once had her own fashion boutique in korea and also designed the clothes on offer. since she still can draw fashion sketches, she simply showed me her draft and i then searched for her dream dress online. and finally we found it. in another post i will present you some online stores where you can also find nice wedding dresses.

this is my beloved blue lace dress which i have bought on kleiderkreisel.de years ago from lovely marie - she also has a beautiful blog and you can visit it here. i have only worn it a few times back then, because i believed that it wouldn't fit me. but after my new haircut i'm wearing it more often and it looks so cool - i love this dress! i also have worn it in paris last month. i will show you in a different post how i combined it there.
you can also find a new post from me on the kleiderkreisel blog - it's called 'welcome to eurasia' and is an introduction to myself and how i am living. it would be nice if you visit it and give me your yeah (on the bottom of the post, on the right side). it's just one click which might give me the chance to win a 200€ voucher for kleiderkreisel or a nice photoshooting (i've made a few already, but i always love shootings, no matter where XD)

a piece of apparel can get a completely different style, just by playing with accessoires and other pieces of apparel, for example if you wear a dress with casual blue jeans, not black or nude coloured tights. one time your piece of apparel can look casual, and one time it can get a glamorous or elegant touch. i love the way you can transform clothes so easily - and here i want to show you how you can get two styles from a houndstooth dress, a denim shirt, a knitted dress, a beloved skater dress with pink elements, a neon yellow jumper and a two tone dress in black and grey.
i hope you like it!

these are the best pictures from my alice in wonderland shooting with joe from foto speyer (click). i wanted to represent hipster alice - can you recognize her? i really love all those hipster disney princesses, you might also have recognized that. i'm very much into that topic haha. to work that out i chose a blue dress in a classic shape, white pearl earrings, nerd glasses, white stockings and mary janes and i think that i look quite authentic - what do you think? well this shooting was really a whole bunch of fun, i think you can see it in the pics :D
and this time the best of the blogs is: gabriella from the great newcomer blog by gabriella wolf (click). i chose her because she has a clean, simple, yet modern and elegant layout, she has great advices for bloggin (for example here and here), she is has a beautiful and and great photographic ambition. i think her blog is really worth stopping by and has a good chance to become a very very big one!
