G’day peeps 😀
Do you remember that annoying ad on youtube? ” I looooove Mondays” – since I do what I love etc bla bla. HAHA but yeah I agree, especially when they look like this! Mondays in general are, as the introduce a new week, always a great chance to start over and embrace a new week of endless possibilities! When you’re on vacation break though, you rather just chill all day, take a walk in the sparkling sunshine and make pasta with your flatmate. And because we don’t care about whether it’s weekend or working day, we go out for drinks on a Monday night. Yeih!
So both Lotti and I went out to see friends. I met up with my sister and her pals and enjoyed some deliciooous cocktails. When I ordered my second one at the bar I asked for “two cherries on top” (because normally it’s only one but My sister wanted one as well haha). The bartender agreed but apparently got it wrong haha because he came to our table with 2 cocktails. I said that I’d only ordered one and that we are sorry. “No problem” he said and left again. Seconds after he appeared at our table again and said, we can have that second cocktail for free and no one has to pay (neither him himself, I asked because I’d feel sorry for him). SOOOOO I asked for an extra cherry and got a whole cocktail haha THANKS, universe! My friends got to enjoy it, I only had 2 in total haha in case you were wondering. ☆☆☆☆☆☆☆
Just another wonderful day in the capital with a girl without a label. I just realized again that even the label “friend” constrains the relationship with the expectations and prototypes society imposes on us. Besides kindness, just act like you feel towards a person. You esteem me? Spent a little of your precious time with me as a present. Help me out when I need support. Jump for joy with me when life is sweet. Not because you are my friend but because you enjoy us being together 🙂
Pictures I took of my blue overall which kinda looks like work clothing, you know, those blue onesies workers wear a at a construction site 😀 It used to have two basic straps over the shoulders but one went off so I made a neck holder top out of it! I love this one, from the first day I bought it in England, but it seems like I’ve grown or it shrinked because it’s a bit to tight now. Not visible on pictures but it’s just uncomfy Therefore I’ll sell it. I think. Or I’ll think of a way to make it larger. Haha!
I am back from an amazing and surprising weekend in Poland where we celebrated the birthday of good friend. After two days among 60 people I finally got to know a woman who vibes with me on a deep level. She’s a reiki healer and on her personal spiritual journey as well and we dived deep into topics like chakra healing, protection against other peoples negative energy (wear hats!), twin flames, self love etc!
One thing that is pretty present in my life right now is that I have to learn to be courageous enough to do what I am afraid of, because
You know your way by looking at the things you fear!
Btw, are you experiencing a rough time right know with more stress or bad luck than usual? You should know that its the MERCURY RETROGRADE in virgo right now, bringing chaos with it, and we need to be really aware and conscious and double check everything! It’s a great time to rethink actions or to finish something. DO NOT plan or make big actions, sign contracts, make agreements (not even verbal), start anything new. It is more likely to not last and it may change very quickly. The main period terminates on the 22.09.
So this is why I still didn’t sign a contract for a flat and why I’ll wait till the mercury is through the most intense phase of its retrograde!
Also, what my friend just told me, it is a good time to get rid of stuff and tidy out. Supposedly it is easier to part with stuff you don’t need any longer, so this is what I did on friday and will do today as well 🙂
It’s always nice because I find stuff I kinda forgot about and which I thought would no longer suit me, like this grey skirt I am wearing in the picture above. But then I start mixing it up with other items and find myself in an outfit I really like! 🙂
I am officially accepted for FASHION DESIGN STUDIES in Leipzig. Whuuuaaa. I spent 3 super intense weeks on creating my art portfolio, because I went to the advanced arts course in high school indeed, yet I haven’t ever collected my art or suchlike. I started from zero and really transformed my usual everyday life into an artsy non-stop period of learning and creating. My parents went on holidays in those exact 3 weeks so I had the flat for myself, and trust me, I needed it. Paper, pencils, watercolors, charcoal, markers, fabric, thread etc everywhere! Eventually I managed to put together 16 cardboards with diverse pieces of art, from sketches to figurines, watercolor portraits, charcoal nude drawings and photographs of my personally designed and sewn clothes to collages. There is one thing I learned and now KNOW from experience, which is:
If you are forced to do something and keep on track (at pressure), you can become good at things you haven’t ever done before. It’s not about what you THINK you can or can’t do; because actually you can, if you only started!
But, to be fair, its way easier to keep on track if you do it with a purpose and a deadline. I think I would probably never have started drawing if it wasn’t for that application. After some tries I would get disappointed and just skip it. And this is the gap you need to pass…
So I went to the interview with my portfolio, thinking this would be so easy as its a private university and they will take everyone they can get. Way off the mark!! This guy there asked a lot of complex questions, also technical stuff that I’ve never heard off (like computer programs for cutting patterns etc), then how I would do this and that, how I would react in that situation or what young fashion designers can apply for after studies except from normal design jobs. In the end he evaluated me as a positively straight freak who is both self confident and modest. Additionally, I am, according to him, really openminded and internationally interested, which is good. Soo I got accepted straight away and it took a load off my mind!
The days after I fell into a sort of a limbo because I had nothing to do anymore? And I doubted if the way was the right for me…. well, my days were filled again quite quickly as I am looking for a flat atm. Busy stuff, so glad when its finally done. But yeah, the feeling of uncertainty stayed and I even doubted my competence to do that study. But today I feel better about it, also because my mom always says that I should just start and I can skip everytime hahah 😀 Because obviously I am just scared of that new thing and its always good to do the things your mind tells you you can’t (no stupid things please).
Ohh my this was a long post. If you read it all: thank you so much, i love you 😀 If not, never mind, I mainly do it for myself 🙂 Now enjoy some of the pictures I took of Lara wearing my clothes! xxx
Yesterday, when I stood unter the shower, I thought about the feeling of being in love and how the whole world changes, how some things get more meaningful and others don’t. How it is so magical that for everyone else the world seems normal but for you everything sparkles.
And then I realized that this sort of feeling isn’t something I have to wait for and that depends on acceptance by others, no, I can just create it myself. Because love equals self love, attention equals self-awareness,
and it is still your choice how you want to perceive the world 🙂
Photoshoot in Berlin with my babe Anna ❤ Can you spot the Fernsehturm? 😀
I am wearing a vintage coat I bought in a Oxfam shop in Bristol, the yellow knit is from H&M (sale 10 €, needed it for the frosty days over here), vintage bag and scarf, black leggings and boots from Deichmann. I guess it’s obvious that I enjoy bying vintage stuff haha! I love t thougt of using / wearing something as long as it’s wearable ! This was my first photoshooting in the midst of many people in a huge city so it definetely was a new experience, but absolutely cool! Love it ! Have you had such a experience already? Let me know how you felt like :*
