wedding days: coloured wedding dresses ♥


why should one have to marry in white? 
why not marry in colour? 

when we went to shop for a wedding dress for the wedding of a very good friend of mine at the 'braut & braeutigam' store in landau, we have seen loads of white dresses, but also some coloured ones. in the show room there was also a very beautiful dress displayed which had been all black, and i loved it! 

me, i wouldn't be able to decide yet whether to marry in colour or in white, but i think that i'm the rather traditional kind - but i think it's a nice and modern idea to wear colours other than white, champagne or cream coloured ... what's your opinion?

today i want to show you a little list of colourful wedding dress choices - and the best with the dresses shown below is that you can definitely wear them again, for example at dinner dances, opera galas and balls.

jam jar moments 2014.





i have already wrote about jam jar moments before, you might have read about it here: clickthe idea is to '... start the year off with an empty jar and fill it with notes about good things that happen. on new years eve, empty it and see what awesome stuff happened that year.'

my jam jar for 2013 was so full with beautiful and colourful notes i had something to read for more than 2 hours - unbelievable how many beautiful things can happen to you during a single year, no mather how tiny they seem. life is full of beauty and hope - we all should remember that ...

i have already started my jam jar for 2014 in the first days of januaryand a fifth is already filled.

my daily make up routine ♥



today i want to give you a little insight into my makeup bag. 
you know i've never been a beauty junkie and it's my least favourite pastime to roam through the depths of drugstors and such, if not speaking about the grocery shelves and new sorts of lactofree products. 
but i've never been THIS interested in cosmetics like other girls or women. 
on that score i'm very, very conservative and, if you like, quite boring in my notion. 
but that's got a good reason. 

my derma, especially my facial skin, is very sensitive and difficult to handle. it was very hard for me to find the perfect products which are compatible with it and i had loads of never ending odysees to find my perfect products which would not cause me any skin irritations, pustules, spots or dry skin. but one after one i found them and i was SO happy, you cannot imagine that. i was so happy that, for the last years i have never changed them, expect for my lipstick. if a product runs short, i'm buying the same article again. and i'm happy with that!

in the survey you can see above i  have numbered all of my products in my makeup bag. i will present them to you one by one.

OUTFIT: game of style - round 1.




so this is round 1 for the february competition of 'game of style'. the theme was 'college grunge' and i was a bit overchallenged with this style task because you know that i'm rather brash, colourful and glamorous ... and i lacked some necessary items: i didn't have a light blue jeans shorts, smooth leather ankle boots, a studded black clutch or a casual hat in grey - but i tried my best ... unfortunately i forgot to wear a hat and ... well i didn't make it, might be because i lacked the hat, but: the heck with it - taking part is everything, huh ?!

OUTFIT: i'm a participant of 'game of style', feb 14 ! ♥


facebook

guys i'm so so so proud! i was chosen to participate in the game of style challenge for february 2014!
what is game of style?

game of style is a fashion blog, where 5 fashion bloggers compete against each other in a styling competition. this is repeated every month. every week a styling task is set, and every week one blogger is disqualified.
in the first week an outfit is fixed which the participants have to re-style as exactly as possible. then there's only a single item fixed and in week 3 a single theme. in week 4 the winner is investigated, who has to set the styling tasks for the following run.




this is the outfit for the run where i'm participating.
i already got an idea how to style it. stay tuned!

OUTFIT: we pledge allegiance to the dj - put your hands up !





dears, i think i might could wear this outfit for our next club visit. i think that the pop of colour and statement jewellery fit perfectly to a glamorous evening full of dancing and fun - what do you think? that's also why i've chosen the post title - it's a line out of one of my favourite songs by macklemore & ryan lewis: 'and we danced'. a fun and motivating song and i LOVE it ... but my favourites will remain 'can't hold us', 'jimmy iovine' 'same love' and 'thrift shop'. XD i also LOVE blue & gold put together. the bag was a present from my aunt which i got when i was 15 (감사합니다, 이모 ~~~) and the necklace was a gift from my mum and authentic vintage, bought in a boutique decaaades ago.

my grooming routine.



i had some kind of this post in mind for a quite long time and finally it is time to show the result to you. this must be my very first cosmetics post on strangeness and charms ever and i'm curious what you'll think of it! today i want to show you the products of my grooming routine. i've never been a beauty junkie and i've never been someone who would spend hours and hours in drugstores and such - on that score i'm quite conservative and, if you like, quite boring in my notion. you'll need to know that i've got a really sensitive derma and it is very difficult for me to find the perfect products which are compatible with it. i have searched for the best products for my skin for quite a long time. often it seemed like a never-ending journey - not even natural cosmetics helped me in terms of face care, or at least most of them. but finally i found those items which do not cause me any problems such as skin irritations, pustules, spots or dry skin.

for cleaning my skin and for removing makeup i use the 3 in 1 cleansing milk from vichy, which is very soothing for my sensitive skin. it also removes all my makeup, including kohl and mascara.

for my regular skin care i use weleda wild rose oil - it has a wonderful fragrance and creates an ultra soft skin. and it's absolutely natural. i also use it for my face as a mask, but not too often, because of its greasing characteristic. sometimes i also use it as a deep hair conditioner.

to wash my hair and body i use a pH skin neutral, dye free, perfume-free, preservative-free and 100% natural bodywash from alverde - after the hair wash i'm always using lemon squash which i dribble upon my scalp. guys you won't believe me but since i use those products i hardly shed hair and it's also extremely shiny. 

from time to time i'm also using a body peeling, also from alverde, with lotus and coconut flakes.

i hope you enjoyed my post and that it was informative and interesting!
have a nice day

OUTFIT: i will tattoo your heart.





today i want to show you an outfit with my favourite and quite new red coat from mango which i bought last month, it's from mango and i LOVE IT! i'm very much in love with red, you might also have noticed that before - in questions of apparel it really is my favourite colour. this time i decided on combining it with my favourite black leather dress from zara which i bought secondhand on kleiderkreisel.de, my favourite place to go for nice second hand bargains. you should really stop by! it's a german website, but there are also many english speaking sellers, myself included :) i decorated my beautiful red coat with a vintage brooch which my mum gave to me last year, it is from the eightees and an authentic boutique designer piece. i also wear a vintage necklace which was a gift from my mum, my favourite chanel earrings, my favourite rolex watch and very comfortable imitation leather boots from graceland. the crêpes with vanilla icecream and whipped cream were my breakfast some days ago when i met a good friend of mine.
