vibrant vibes

It’s not easy to find a good green nail polish. I already wrote about the adventure how I found my last green nail polish, when I was particularly looking for one. This time it was a little bit easier: In August I just went to my local drugstore like any other day and suddenly discovered the new Essie Neon Collection. All the other colors weren’t real neon colors in my opinion and I already own very similar colors, but I really liked the green color called “vibrant vibes” (#368). It’s a pretty special light and bright neon lime green color. And…

Mint & Gray

Mint is such a great color. You can match it with almost every other color, I especially love it together with other pastel colors like light yellow, light pink or light blue. But if I don’t want to look too sweet, I also like the combination of mint and gray. So for this outfit I mixed mint with gray, black and white for the perfect dark/light and color balance. I like how my star scarf picks up the mint from the skirt and the gray from the tights. I love this skirt by MINKPINK. It has the perfect shape, the mint…

Ju-Ju-Be x tokidoki Better Be Diaper Bag

For the longest time I wanted to have a bag by tokidoki. Not one of the fake ones you see some people with here and there. tokidoki’s designs are heavily influenced by Japanese pop culture. The bag, accessory and clothing patterns are really cute and colorful with a lot of funny mascots like cactus people and animals and similar. The first time I saw something by tokidoki was while I was still at the university. I instantly fell in love with their designs, but even with working part-time I had no spare money to buy a bag which would cost € 100+. So…

Under the Palm Trees

We just had a drastic change of weather here in Vienna. While it was still around 30° to 35°C at the beginning of last week, the temperature suddenly dropped to around 20°C within one day and it also started to rain. Like everyone else already noticed: Brace yourself – Fall is coming! Well, I love summer and the sunshine and going swimming outside, but I wouldn’t say I’m unhappy with the change right now. The summer was just too much for me. On most days it was just too hot and the sun was too intense to be able to go…

stiletto lady

While I don’t like red nail polishes nor owning one, I do enjoy pinks, purples or rosy colors. And then there’s also this beautiful aubergine-colored nail polish: stiletto lady by ANNY (#198.70). I already bought it (and also took these photos) back in spring, on the same day I bought ANNY’s paradise on earth at Douglas, but never came to show it to you. I think this is just a perfect color for the upcoming fall, so I’m using the opportunity to write about it now. I’m honestly not into fall fashion or colors. Every year at around this time…

AniNite 2015

Last Saturday Tom and I visited the AniNite – Austria’s biggest anime & manga convention. The first time we went to the AniNite was already 10 years ago, I wouldn’t actually believe it, if I hadn’t taken any photos. It was totally different back then, but I really enjoyed it. But today I want to tell you more about this year. I already ordered… no, I bought… no, I paid for the tickets one and a half month in advance. The sale process worked like this: you choose which tickets you want on the website, they’ll send you an email,…

Kupo! Kupo!

I love Moogles! Those fluffy Cat-Mouse-Bats from Final Fantasy (and Kingdom Hearts, but that’s basically Final Fantasy, too + Disney) are just some of the cutest game mascots ever. Last month I saw a photo post from the official german Square Enix Facebook Page of a girl wearing an incredibly sweet pink dress with a Moogle print on it! They also provided a link to the dress label: Living Dead Clothing. Oh no, just why did I click on this link? The Australian company creates dresses, skirts, tops, leggings and a lot more with a lot of unique cool and nerdy…

Family Meals – 365 Days Edition

Cooking with a small baby at home is near impossible. Especially the first months were really hard for me, but even now with a 13 month old toddler, it’s still a challenge to find the time to cook and bake when I’m alone with Flynn. However sometimes I actually am able to make some great meals or cakes. And of course it’s getting better the older Flynn grows. So today I want to continue showing you some of our family meals from the last 12 months. At least the ones that I took photos of and that are acceptable to show…
