my second glossybox has arrived while i was gone for istanbul. i always love opening them, because it really is like getting a present! they're so nicely wrapped and the colors are always picture perfect. the products this time weren't as great as last time, which is probably because i can't use any volume-adding hair products (i already have too much volume going on) and i also don't use hair spray. my favorite is definitely the issey miyake pocket perfume! all of these goodies were in my box:

ISSEY MIYAKE L'Eau D'Issey Florale

i like animals. a lot. sometimes i wish i was one. any fluffy creature makes my heart melt. that's why i like dressing up as a bird. stradivarious sale in budapest helped me make my bird-dream come true.

what makes a girl feel like a princess? a package full with dior make-up! a few days ago my heart melted, when i got this wonderful... wait... AMAZING package my dior make-up. i was already a fan of their brand new launched website Backstage Dior and getting my hands on these goodies definitely made a dream come true. here's a little list of what's decorating my bathroom shelves now:

Diorskin Forever Compact 
Diorshow New Look
Rosy Glow Blush
Dior Addict Extreme
Dior Vernis
Acqua di Parma Blu Mediterraneo

my favorite is definitely the make-up, even though it's a little darker than the compact powder that i've been using for years, the liquid make-up is perfect for the summer. plaza, the vernis color, is the coolest i've seen in a long time. i have never tried dior nail polish before and i am really satisfied. the blush shocked me at first because it seemed to bright, which normally doesn't work with my tan skin, but it somehow adapts to your skin tone and gives such a fresh impression. anyway, i could go on and on, about how much i'm in love with these goodies. the boyfriend also got lucky, he kept the acqua di parma perfume, which makes him smell like summer, the ocean and romantic dates on a sailing boat...

leathered up

shoes, trousers, shirt ZARA / necklace H&M / coat LES ENVAHISSEURS / hat DIY

as i said: 5°C feels like summer to me right now. i got so many amazing things, like these wedges on sale at zara and this coat (i blogged about it also here) at the cheapest store on rue des rosiers in paris and i am so happy to finally be wearing them. "she's wearing a (fake - to be clear) leather coat, a rock necklace and she's posing in front of a brick wall - wow she must be GANGSTER".... well yeah, i am. SO gangster.

color blocked

shoes, belt, coat ZARA / trousers WE BANDITS / shirt H&M TREND

like i said: it feels like summer! maybe i am exaggerating a tiny little bit, but it definitely feels gooooood. i got most of these goodies on sale, as you can tell i went a little crazy over zara's sale in january. color blocking has been my all time favorite, but i guess you have noticed that already. i got a REALLY exciting package in the mail today, i can NOT wait to tell you about it. (i am slightly going bananza over it).

so many of you were asking about my diana mini photos and here they finally are. you can check out my post about this wonderful camera i got from lomography for christmas here. after i decided to leave my SLR at home and only take the iphone and my diana mini to paris with me  i knew it was a risky mission. the instagram turned out perfectly and now after developing the film from my lomo camera i am quite satisfied. i still have to figure out the exposure and since it was a -10 °C weekend trip the greyish look of these photos simply resembles the weather. also some photos turned out blurry, but like i said: the cam and i have to get to know each other with time (i have very romantic feelings when it comes to cameras).

 ps: i realized i am the most cliche tourist ever. most of my film has been filled with the eiffel tower motive. laaaaame.

come to mama! i REALLY can't wait for the mail man to get those babies to my house. now with work i don't have that much time to shop so internet shopping has become more of my thing. i normally hate shopping online, but hey: you gotta go what you gotta do. (old man voice)
