splashes of color -wootd

22 Aug

hello lovelies!
i’ve finally managed to settle back into “normal life” after an unbelievable weekend in beautiful copenhagen.
without further ado, i give you outfits from last week in no particular order. you will notice i’m really into wearing colors and aztec patterns right now- i’m kind of trying to get my chromatic fill before the fall and winter seasons where i won’t be in the mood for crazy colorful outfits anymore- i’m sure you understand :)

t-shirt: asos white
scarf: asos
jeans: blank nyc
ballerinas: zara

tank top: fishbone
shorts: h&m
espadrilles: sketchers

hoodie: zara
t-shirt: fishbone
jeans: true religion

essie turquoise & caicos and mint candy apple

29 Jun

finally a new nail post!
i recently bought two wonderful minty shades, and i wanted to try both of them right away. instant gratification to the max!
let me know what you think of the two shades!

t&c on the left, m-c-a on the right

i thought that painting each hand in a different color, with the contrasting ring finger nail would look cool. and it did! the difference between the two shades is quite distinct, even in the consistency! the more covering pastel mint candy apple has a thicker texture, and i love the light pastel blue. turquoise & caicos is more liquid, i needed three coats to get complete coverage (mint candy apple needed only 2 coats), but it’s so worth the extra effort! the color is a fresh tiffany blue, and both shades are such fun summer colors! these two colors (aswell as corals and oranges) would look awesome with a silver or gold glitter top coat, don’t you think?
have you tried these or similar shades?
what colors do you like to wear most?

copenhagen distortion and circus confetti

30 May

i hate that work takes all my blogging energy away. i’m left in the evening with no strength to do anything anymore. i literally hurl myself onto the couch and don’t move except for getting food. the last tidbits are spared for transferring my exhausted body to the bathroom for the evening routine, and finally- propel myself into my bed.
so so sad.

not today! today, my dearest readers, i will stay up late! for what? packing!
i’ve taken thursday and friday off work, to attend the wonderful copenhagen distortion – a block party so awesome, it lasts four days. set smack- right in the city center of wonderful copenhagen, this party is epic. my best friend and i went already last year, and promised eachother we’d do it again. and again.

last year we were blessed with fantastic weather- sadly, the forecast for the following days doesn’t look so nice, but whatever! fuck you weather, we don’t need your cooperation to party!
that’s right.

my biggest dilemma right now is the ever-recurring, perpetual question of: “what will i wear?”  
ok… so there is a 30-50% chance of rain for pretty much all four days, and the temperatures will be in the mid-high-teens (celsius) during the day, and around 8°c at night. not toasty, but not fuck-i’m-freezing either.
the plan is to take one pair of jeans (ripped), and one other pair of pants. i think it’ll be my gray jeans. a pair of tights, jeans-shorts or skirt, and a bunch of t-shirts and sweaters/hoodies. footwear has to be practical: black wellies and my black-and-gold reebok high tops. i don’t know yet which jacket or coat i will end up taking… it has to be something that won’t get me wet… maybe i’ll stop by h&m in the morning and scout for wind/rainbreakers.
what are your suggestions for bad-weather festival/party/concert attire? what are your favorite clothing items you always take with you to an event?

i have a special plan for my nails. while in bratislava i bought a very cool nailpolish from essence, 02 circus confetti – a multicolored and multi-shaped glitter top coat:

circus confetti!

 as a base coat i used the clear polish (colour&go, dries super fast) and the gel-look polish as a top. it looked really cool, even on natural nails. the vision for my distortion nails is circus confetti over either a white base, or the light bluey-minty catrice sold out forever. which do you think would look better? white or blue-mint?

 

bratislava and big apple red

25 May

last weekend i was in bratislava visiting my best friend.  we were so lucky with the weather, it was gorgeous!

the main reason i went is the nightlife. not for nothing bratislava is dubbed partyslava– the alcohol and entrances are so cheap! the city is crawling with international people (many big international companies have their european hq in slovakia), but everywhere you go you mainly hear british english. thanks to ryanair and their airfares, bratislava is a super popular place for bachelor/ette parties (as the brits call them: stag and hen nights).

we went to about 4 places on friday night, and ended up at trafo, a fun and crazy club right in the city center. we were home around 4 in the morning, and when we woke up at 1 pm on saturday, we were both nursing a slight hangover. my bff suggested we go chill in the sun, and drink some lemonade (very popular) at leblon, a brazilian churrascaria right by the river. i had lemonade joe, a deliciously refreshing lemonade with cucumber slices, elderflower syrup, limes and soda.

we then walked around town, and ended up strolling by the blue church– or as we call it, the disney church:

by sunday our nails were a mess, so we went to get them done. i fell in love with opi big apple red! such a striking red shade with fuchsia undertones- the perfect red for summer! needless to say, i wanted to get it. when i got back to vienna i looked online for it, and because i was curious about the much acclaimed seche vite i was browsing for that too. i stumbled upon micky nail studio, a new store in vienna that also has an online shop. what makes micky nail studio special is that not only do they carry most collections of opi, they also stock essie, china glaze, seche vite, orly and zoya! if that wasn’t enough, opi and essie are cheaper there than anywhere else i’ve seen. before i knew it, my fingers started clicking, and i checked out a basket of 5 nailpolishes. it happens, right? when the haul arrives, you’ll know it :)
