Birthday and Brunch

Well it was my birthday yesterday and it was the first time I didn't wake up at home on this particular day in the year. I was in my new OWN flat :) And this time it was not the parents but my beloved bf who woke me up. I didn't really party as almost everyone's on holiday right now but what isn't can still be ;D

And this is what I got: my new digital SLR I'd longed for forever, an H&M voucher, a slouchy 80s pullover, a new Audrey Hepburn poster for the new room and this lovely jewel case you can see above from my parents, money from my grandma aaaand a cute key fob and a university pullover of the Ruhr University I'd been accepted at and where I'll study Politics, Economics & Society as well as Media Studies from this year's October on!

Unfortunately I haven't taken any good pictures yet as I haven't inserted the SD card into my new camera yet. Just yet another photo of the jewel casket opened and some impressions of the amazing brunch I had with my friends this noon at a friend's place. She's got the lovliest house ever!


Colour Mixture

Fallen in love with this beautiful, motley composition of a gaudy, a pastel and a natural colour seen at Dries van Noten's F/W collection.

Beg, Steal Or Borrow

Had a mother-daughter day today and I enjoyed it! First we went shopping (of course! haha) and again I must admit I got looooads of stuff. I should really stop going shopping as I've paid a fortune the last days. But what can a girl do when she tries on clothes which fit perfectly and look ever so good and as a matter of course like nothing else she owns?! Exactly. Nothing. May most probably post some new outfits soon! 

And this leads me straight to my next topic: the camera. I've been wanting an slr for AGES but of course it costs quite a bit. Now however I stumbled across this babe:
sexy, huh? ;D And not only that. It's also totally affordable. 
The second part of my mum's and my day was seeing the new Harry Potter film, hehe. It's sort of a tradition. We've always done that together with each of the films. I can remember our sitting in the cinema watching the first part back in 2001 or so. Oh well I'm getting nostalgic :P The film itself wasn't as good as expected. Liked the last one muuuch better.
However, what really knocked me off my feet was the new Arctic Monkeys track Crying Lightning. Totally love it. Just heard it some minutes ago for the very first time. I'm so looking forward to their new album Humbug!


Still Take You Home

The new room. Sorry for the chaos. It's far from done and probably it will never be finished... but this is just to give you an impression of it.


Can't You See I'm Trying? I Don't Even Like It. Is This It?

Photograph taken shortly before I went to the pictures and to a cocktail bar with my best friend. Also wore a short black vintage blazer with shoulder pads overneath since it's got so unpleasantly windy and all rainy here in Germany. It's supposed to be summerly from tomorrow on. Let's see, I'll cross my fingers for that.  The pants were actually tight once... I've somehow lost six kilos in a week without wanting that and without doing any sports... I don't know what's going on with my body :(
