pants, top: h&m leather jacket: topshop shoes: lily shoes

Hey guys! Sorry for the poor update, but I've been waaay too busy to spend time taking/editing pictures and updating. I had my first two orals yesterday, which went both quite well, but that just means that my two hardest ones are yet to come.. I burried myself in german today (and did not take off my pyjamas - seriously) and I'm going to cry tears of joy when I'll actually be able to talk about german literature for more than 5 minutes on Monday.. I can't wait to be done, all the studying is sucking the energy out of me, I desperately need my summer break.
I hope everything's going well with you, I'll be back to normal/regular updating ASAP xo

Cloudy Wednesday

Wednesday, 26 June 2013

top: zara jeggings: dr denim cardigan: mango

I just quickly wanted to pop by and already let you know in advance that I probably won't be able to update daily for the next 8 days. I'm having my first orals in two days and even though they're the two easiest ones, I'm still kind of jittery and freaking out, simply because I feel like my brain won't save any more stuff about philosophy, urgh! I'm gonna pull myself together and try studying for another hour today until I'm off to work out for a bit (working out really does help, since I can let go of some of my overflowing energy) and then watch Monsters University with a friend! I'm so excited about the movie, that I feel like a 6 year old instead of an 18 year old, but hey, I waited far too long for this! Another movie on my have-to-watch-list is Despicable Me 2, and since I already made a pact with the boyfriend to go watch that one, I should probably go remind him that it's in the cinema right now... ehehehheheh.

Okay enough now, I'm off, I need to stop procrastinating!!

Prom/Proclamation outfits

Tuesday, 25 June 2013

 This is the dress I'll be wearing to my prom. It's maxi-lenght and just perfect! It was a tad too wide and long, so I got that fixed at the tailor and now it fits me like a glove. I'm going to feel like such a princess! (I got the dress from this website - I only paid a third of the original price though!!)
This clutch is an old one from my grandma that she gave me. I already wore it to a similar thing to the prom and since the upper part of my dress is sparkly, this clutch will be just enough as accessoire, no need for any jewellery!
 This Motel Rocks (yes, I finally got myself something from that brand!) lace dress is what I'll be wearing to my proclamation. It's short, but not too short, so it's still kind of classy.
 It has a very low back, which gives it that little touch that makes it even more beautiful!
 You can't see it that well on the picture, but the dress is covered in golden glitter, which makes me feel like a fairy in it, hihi.
 These nude/old rose shoes are from Sacha, I'll be wearing them with my proclamation dress.

I decided to only show you detail pictures, (apart from the clutch, obviously) because the dresses only look good in these kind of pictures or when worn and I simply didn't want to spoil the surprise of pictures of me actually wearing anything. (Yes, yes, call me weird)
I haven't looked for/found any shoes to wear to prom or a bag/clutch for the proclamation, but I'll probably keep it simple on those accessoires, so I'll just spontaneously decide on that. Do you like the dresses, etc? Personally, I'm more than happy with everything and I just can't wait to wear it all!

Good day

Monday, 24 June 2013

Just a random picture of books that I'm currently reading/I want to read soon - exams, be over already!

I got my driver's license!!!!!!! Okay, this was necessary. After failing the exam the first time, I'm pretty much the happiest person alive right now, it brings me that small step closer to being independent! Unfortunately, being on the road (see what I did there? hehehe) all day, barely being at home, I didn't study the tiniest bit, so I'll have to have some serious study sessions over the next few days and pull myself together one more time before I am finally a free person on the 6th of July!
Since some of you said that yes, you want to see my prom/proclamation outfits, I'll post pictures of them ASAP :) Now I'm off to relax a little and try to go to bed earlier than usually. Have a nice rest of the day! xo

And I know that this must be annoying, but really do follow me on Bloglovin', here!! I fixed the problem, so now you can all see my updates on your Bloglovin' dashboard. I currently only have 36 followers on Bloglovin', which irritates me a bit, since I've gained so many recently, so go click the button or import my blog!

Duke's night

Sunday, 23 June 2013

top: everything5pounds jeggings: dr denim watch: asos shoes: bershla

Yesterday, I went to town to celebrate the birthday of Luxembourg's duke. As always, there were way too many people walking around, but it was lots of fun! Today is the offical National Day, so there's more 'formal' celebrations going on. The pictures show what I wore, even though I changed the shoes to warmer ones and I added a rain jacket. Thaaat's pretty much all for now, have a nice Sunday! xo

skirt + sandals: h&m sweater: /

When I went to try on my prom dress with my mum after it's been made a bit smaller/shorter by the tailor, I spontaneously threw on this skirt-sweater-sandals combination and thought I'd take some pictures of it because why not? I finally painted my toenails for the first time this year and I can already see myself not repainting them for about 2 months, since I'm just such a terribly lazy person.
On another note: would any of you be interested in seeing what I'm planning to wear to my proclamation (the ceremony where I'll get my diploma) and Bal du Bac (prom, basically)?
I now really should go to bed soon, since my sleeping schedule is a bit messed up, even though I do get up quite early, (busy, busy schedule) which is good because then at least I'm up, but I somehow can't make myself go to bed before 1 or 2AM, argh! Good night xo

PS: I'm still trying to figure out a problem regarding my Bloglovin'-Blogger-connection, hopefully I'll be able to fix it soon.

We can't stop

dress: h&m divided pullover: massimo dutti (2nd hand)

When I wanted to snap outfit pictures before leaving the house yesterday morning, it looked like the apocalypse was happening outside, making it absolutely impossible to have any decent light for pictures. I spontaneously threw this on and added my white vans and rain jacket, but I could luckily just run around in the dress for the rest of the day, because the weather got all summery again. I'm currently having a really hard time resisting to read all those blogs that have updated over the last 30ish hours, but I definitely have to start studying for my German oral, so I guess I'll keep the reading as a motivation/reward for later! That's all for now, I'll be back with better pictures/a hopefully more interesting post soon xo

PS: who else is loving Miley Cyrus' new song right now? I love it! Listen to it here

Wednesday, 19 June 2013

How many countries have you visited?  Which ones?
I’ve visited Germany, France, Belgium, Italy, Spain, Holland, Estonia, Turkey, Tunisia, Greece, England, ... I think that’s all! That would be 11 countries.
What would you like to change about your body?
I’m currently working on replacing some fat with muscle, I basically want to shape up a bit. I wouldn’t want to change anything that I can’t change by working out, since I am the way I am and I want to stay that way!
How would you like your life to be like in 5 years?  What kind of job, which country/city, etc
I either want to be working somewhere in Europe, (I don’t have an exact idea what) preferably in the UK or France, or I’ll be doing a Master, (No idea in what though, again) hopefully in Paris.
Which languages do you wish you could speak?
I’d like to speak Spanish fluently, better the way I can speak it at the moment. Additionally, I’d like to know.. Swedish! It sounds so cool in my opinion, haha! But really, I’d love to speak any language at all fluently, I’m a big language-lover.
Top 3 favorite blogs/the blogs you check everyday?
I’ve added so many blogs to my reading list, that this is very hard to answer, but I’ll try:
www.kristianavasarina.com (She’s the reason I started blogging!)
www.intothefoldfashion.com (Discovered this one recently, I just wish she’d update more!)
www.bonjourbellerue.blogspot.com (Again, hoping for more updates)
What do you want to do after studying Journalism?
First of all: I probably won’t study Journalism after all (more on that further down). I’d like to either make a Master in something, maybe Paris or I’ll hope to find a nice job. I’d love to start travelling a lot as soon as possible.
Where do you stand politically?
I’m not a big fan of politicians/politics generally spoken, so I don’t really know where I stand myself, but anyone who supports women, wants to help the poor, etc, is someone I like. (haha) This answer is probably a bit weird, but I really don’t know how to answer this in a better way..
Tell me ONE thing that makes you special or different from other people?
The fact that I laugh. All the time, about myself, about silly things, it doesn’t even have to be funny. I myself like to think that I’m easy to get along with as long as you’re openminded and have some humour!
How did you meet/get to know your boyfriend?
I got to know him through my best guyfriend at the time! We basically met on a night out, started talking...
Are you afraid all by your own next year?
No, actually! Of course, there is always a small part of me that’s going to be confused and scared, but at the same time, I feel absolutely ready to get out there, live somewhere new and do the things I like! I’ve been away from my parents for a while quite often already, so I don’t have a problem with that.
Is there someone from your school who's doing the same thing?
Yes, one of my best friends applied at the same University as me and it’s both our first choice! So if we both get the average we need, we’ll end up at the same Uni and for sure even in the same building, haha!
What are you going to wear on the Bal du BAC?
I got a long, black dress with.. glass stones on the top part. If you know what I mean? It’s strapless and soo beautiful, I will look like a princess. I was thinking about taking pictures of my Proclamation and Bal du BAC dresses – would anyone be interested in that?
Do you have a lot of Luxemburgish friends?
Not really. I have a good friend whom I also went to England with for two weeks, two years ago, but other than that, the only Luxemburgish friends are pretty much those that ended up in ESL as well.
Where do you most go out at weekends?
That really depends. I often go to warm ups (mostly hosted by finnish people) and then I’ll either be at Interview, Sulpalco, Blue Bar.. regarding clubs, I go wherever my friends or people I know are/want to go. That usually is Verso, Melusina and sometimes even Secret Garden or White (even though I don’t like those two very much)
Do you have your driving licience?
No. I have, however, been driving since November, with my mum/dad. I had a driving test once but failed it, so I’m back to normal driving lessons, but I soon have another exam again. Fingers crossed!
Do you drink a lot when going out?
Again, that depends. I often am just tipsy when going out, but sometimes, when I have a good reason to party, I’ll drink a bit more. However, I know my limits and I’ve never had any very bad experience such as getting sick from alcohol or so!
What are your favourite shops?
I’m guessing that you’re referring to clothing shops, etc. I love, love, love Topshop, it’s the one shop I would have no problem to buy empty, haha! Other than that, I also like Pull and Bear, New Look, Asos, H&M (especially lately, they’ve been selling such nice things!), ZARA, Primark, ...
Why do you want to study Journalism?
The reason I wanted to study Journalism is that I love writing. This blog is one of the ways that I express that. If you want to read more about my study/work ideas, check out this post I made a while ago.
Now, I said “wanted”, because I changed my mind and applied for Media & Communication to some other Unis and I think that that’s something I want to do even more. I chose that subject, because I’m interested in everything that is connected to languages, different cultures, but also (again) writing, the internet,... I’m not completely sure if I won’t swap subjects again (yes, I know, I can be complicated at times, haha)
Are you excited about University?  What do you think it will be like?
Yes, very! Especially now that I know what my opportunities will be if I pull myself together and work hard one more time before officially finishing school. I think it will be very different, a lot of fun, but also work. Also, I think it will be a very.. colourful experience. Getting to know new things and people, learning... I definitely am very excited!
How would you describe your style?
To be honest, I don’t actually know. I like a lot of different things; basic outfits, (jeans, t-shirt) girly outfits, edgy ones.. I just mix whatever I feel looks good and what I like and then that’s my “style”. This question has to be one of the hardest to answer!
 Which country or city would you love to visit?
Ohh, the list is never ending! Thailand, USA (especially New York), Sydney, Sweden, Latvia, South America, Finland, maybe Japan, ...
What do you think of Uggs?
I would never buy them for myself and I generally find them awful, haha! The only ones that I find “acceptable” (and cute on some people), are the very low, small ones.
How is it to live in Luxembourg?
It’s cosy, quite safe, and terribly boring at times! Especially since I’ve been to quite a few big cities already, Luxembourg often seems a bit dull. Nevertheless, I am more than happy and grateful to have grown up here, it has its own charm.
What are your biggest fashion no-no's?
I don’t think I really have any of those, but I really don’t like Uggs, (they’re okay if it’s minus 10 degrees outside and snowy, but otherwise: nooo) I can’t stand it when people wear dresses or skirts over jeans (I’ve done it myself when I was 10, but I regret it – so much), and I really, really don’t like the “wedge-sneaker” trend that’s been around for a while now. I just don’t see the point in it. Buy wedges, buy sneakers, but why would you need a combination of them? That’s all I can think of right now..
How has your life changed since you started blogging?
I pay more attention to what I wear, I take more pictures and I realised that whenever I was on a blogging break, I never knew what do to with all the pictures I took, I felt like sharing them, but not only on Facebook or so. Also, I spend a lot more time on the internet - obviously, haha!
Food/drink which you absolutely don't like?
Brussel sprouts, yuck! Warm milk, some spices, .. I generally eat/like everything, so that’s all I could think of.
What do you think about the general typical style of most people in Luxembourg? (especially compared to other places like London, Berlin etc.)
It’s very obvious that Luxembourg is a small country with a small capital when you walk through it and look at other people and how they’re dressed. Here, everyone (including me at times) is much more shy when it comes to what they’re wearing. It’s very boring compared to big cities such as London, Berlin, and so on. I’m very happy that I get to live somewhere else soon, simply so I’ll start experimenting more, because right now, I still feel like the fact that I live in Luxembourg is holding me back from trying certain things when it comes to clothes.
What one clothing/shoes/bag would you purchase if the price did not matter?
Hmmm, probably Acne. They have amazing basics but also special pieces.. I’ll just keep on dreaming, haha!
How do you think/expect your life to change after you go to Uni? (in all ways - friends, style, blogging etc)
I think I’ll get to know people that have lived a completely different life than me before they came to Uni, from other countries and cultures, etc.  My blogging is either going to increase or decrease, it all depends on how busy I’ll be with Uni and if I’ll still enjoy it, I guess. And my style is going to get more experimental, I think! I hope so too.
Do you have a life motto? If yes, what it is?
“Laughter is the best cure.” Simply because I agree, a smile, a good laugh, it’s those small things that make you feel better, even if you’ve been having a very bad day.
Best movie you have ever seen?
This is impossible to answer! I can write down a couple of my favourite movies, but that’s it; Virgin Suicides, Despicable Me (I don’t care if it’s a children’s movie!), Orphan Esther, Mean Girls, (YES) American Beauty, Anna Karenina, ...
Have you ever met any celebrity? And which singer/actor you wood like to meet most?
No, I haven’t. Johnny Depp, simply because he’s my absolute celebrity crush, hehe.
Since you have tumblr have you ever considered making a fandom blog? And what do you think about fandom people?
No, I’ve never even thought about that.. I think they’re fun at times, especially if they have a nice blog/tumblr about their fandom, but I personally would never consider making one myself.
Do you listen to 80's and 90's music?
80’s, no and 90’s sometimes. Usually things like Oasis, Christina Aguilera (if that even counts), Michael Jackson (does that count?)... I mainly listen to the “current” music.
Where are you going to live while in Uni?
If I’m going to England, (which is my first choice) I’ll be living on campus for a year and then probably share a house with friends the year/s after. If I’m going to France, I’ll get my own appartment.
Where is your Uni? 
The one in England is in Brighton and the one in France is in Nice
 Ever wanted to get a tattoo?
Yes, but right now I don’t feel like getting one anymore at all. Maybe I’m growing up, haha!
If you could just listen to one song for the rest of your life, which one would it be?
I really, really can't answer this! My favourite songs change all the time and I can't even pick a single band/singer I'd be able to listen to for the rest of my life, simply because I like so many different kinds of music. If you want to listen to my current favourite songs, go check out this post!
Do you write a lot?
Not anymore. When I was younger, I used to write tons of stories, sometimes even ones that were pages and pages long, often even in French! I now don't have the time anymore and I feel like I have less creativity than I used to have back then. My blog is the main place where I write.
Would you post a chronicle you've written in english or french if your readers were interested?
First of all, I don't have any of my stories I wrote back then anymore, and second of all, they're no big art or anything like that! When I was smaller, I used to read books 24/7, and that was also the main reason that I started writing my own stories. So all those stories are old, maybe a bit childish - in no way interesting for the blog/my readers, I'd say.

Thank you so, so much for all the questions, everyone! I would never have thought that I'd get such a huge amount of them. If you have any more questions in the future, the easiest way for me to answer them will be if you ask them on my formspring!

top: zara skirt: asos shoes: vans sunglasses: fa├žonnable

It was even hotter today than it was yesterday, (up to 35 degrees) so I kept the outfit simple and light, as I spent the day trying to move the least possible. I'm going to work on that Q&A post today/tomorrow, (damn, did you guys ask a lot of questions!!) so it'll hopefully be up tomorrow night, but no promises! I don't have a lot more to share at the moment, so I'm saying bye at this point and I'll be getting to work to answer aaaaall those questions.. xo

all the pictures are from my tumblr

I spent my day with driving lessons, studying philosophy and some last minute prom-shopping and since it was almost 30 degrees today, I couldn't really bother to put effort into my outfit, which concludes in me not taking any pictures for the blog. Nevertheless, I wanted to share an inspirations post, which is one of my personal favourite kind of post when it comes to other blogs.

PS: I am so so so suprised (positively!!) on how many questions I got for the Q&A post! I'm definitely going to make one, probably within the next 2-3 days. If you haven't asked me anything yet, make sure to comment here.

What's in my bag?

Sunday, 16 June 2013

My current favourite bag is this on I got at Primark for 8€ (!) back in January
I'm one of those girls who carry a huge wallet with them, because I have so many damn client cards, bus cards, etc, etc. I can't understand people who don't carry around earphones with them, since I feel really lost and naked without the option of listening to music. Obviously, my phone and house keys are very very important, and I've gotten the good habit of almost always having a bottle of water in my bag. I have naturally pretty dry skin, so a hand creme is a big necessity for me - there's nothing that I hate more than dry hands, yuck! The mini deodorant has to be one of the most practical things I own and I definitely have to get a new one, before this one's empty. Finally, I usually have some kind of lip balm in my bag, but that's currently being replaced by my light pink Clinique lipstick/lipbalm. I don't always have the small hairbrush with me, but it has a mirror, which can be really useful, and the small white/blue container thingie is for my contacts, since I tend to get all kinds of annoying stuff in my eyes (unlucky much haha). Lastly, the sunglasses are something I only added to my bag recently, but it makes me so happy to have them in there too, because that means that the weather is actually pretty decent!

The last time that I asked for suggestions on what to post, I got this post as one of the ideas, (thanks to the people who commented :) ) and even though my bag carries things in it, which probably almost every girl has in hers too, I though why not and went ahead. I decided not to show my school bag, since that's usually full pens and notebooks and what not. I was going to take the pictures with the things laying on my wooden window sill, but the lighting was bad, so my ugly carpet floor had to do the job.

PS: Another suggestion was to make a Question & Answers post. I really like the idea of that, but I'm not sure if I'd get enough questions together to make an entire post for them? I'd say that if I get more than 10 questions on this post, I'll make a Q&A soon. Anything that's not inappropriate or too private will be answered!

jeggings: dr denim top: everything 5 pounds necklace: my mum's nailpolish: hema

Yesterday, I went to the BBBQ (Bac BBQ) from my year, which means that we basically spent half the day outside on some field. Since it wasn't warm but not cold either, I decided to wear my new crop top and the new pair of highwaisted black jeggings I got. I added the necklace, a denim jacket and light ballet flats (which are wandering to the bin now because they're finally completely wrecked) to make it a bit more colourful and suprisingly ended up wearing my hipster sunglasses (the round ones) most of the time. I kind of had to run to the bus, so I didn't have time to take proper outfit pictures, but since this one is pretty simple, I decided that a mirror and detail shot will do :) I got a suggestion on a post I should make and I'll probably do that tomorrow or so, but as always, I'm open to any suggestions! I'm a bit scared that the blog will seem a bit boring if I only post outfit pictures 99% of the time. Or do you like that? What are your favourite kinds of posts?
Have a nice rest of the Saturday! xo
