Come back, summer feeling!

So, folks. It's pretty boring sitting at home, and I can't go out or anything since I have flu, probably swine flu. Ha, I remember, like 2 months ago everybody was crazy about swine flu and in the news they said like 'one person in Germany down with swine flu' and now they don't even test you. the doctor just said: 'Yeah, probably, so many people have it now...'

Well, whatever. So I decided to blog something. Sorry, I've been a bad blogger lately.

"List 7 songs you are into right now. No matter what the genre, whether they have words, or even if they're not any good, but they must be songs you're really enjoying now, shaping your spring. Post these instructions in your blog along with your 7 songs."

Secret- The Pierces
It's probably one of the cutest song ever

Country Boy- Florence e Florentino
Just imagine being somewhere in California, lying in the warm sand and eating lots of ice-cream. I don't think I feel sick anymore. I'm also in love with 'I see birdies' by them.

The Escapologist- Sugarplum Fairy
Yes, this one might be old. But, you can sing along anytime and it's so much fun to dance around to.

Bright Lights- Placebo
The new version (Bright Lights in black holes) is amazing. Just listened to it today for the first time, and it's so much better than the album version. So ....clear.

Oh Mighty Engine - Neil Halstead
Two words: Chill. out.

I like the way you move- Bodyrockers
This is a soundtrack of a video I saw lately on youtube, and the song gets better and better with each listen. I actually don't listen that uch to such electronic stuff, but this is good. Really.

Liebestraum No.3- Franz Liszt
I have to do a presentation based on this song for the music lesson, so I'm listening to it very often right now and I even start enjoying it :D

French girl

I really like it. It's so simple and young, and very fresh. She really mixes up the designer things with the easy stuff. And she has this French attitude, which I love. For example, the first one, especially the red lips, is very French. I think, on the second look, the simple and a bit washed-out looking grey/green shirt together with the green scarf look a bit boring. But combined with the flower pattern of the scarf (look closer!) and the beige blazer, which looks expensive, the look becomes great. The red dress is one the one hand, due to the skirt, schoolgirl-esque, but on the other hand pretty ladylike because of the red colour. The feminine skirt and the blue blazer is always a go-go, you can't do anything wrong with this combination. The fifth look is my favourite: It's so great for winter! A wool white dress and a black wool coat. Brown boots and bag. Last but not least: black'n'white. (Actually black'n'cream). Legs all tone-in-tone and a sheer white top and a knit cardigan with puff sleeves.

Today, when I went home from school, I saw a quite pretty girl in a nice outfit in the bus. But that's not the point. This girl was...I don't know...very addicted to her lipgloss. Every minute she put it out of her bag and greased tons of it onto her lips so that they looked very sticky and I just wondered if she had just very dry lips and this lipgloss was kind of a balm she had to use in winter or if she just thought that she looked beautiful with so much clear gloss on.
So I decided just to write down what I personally think are the Do's and Don't of (winters) Make-Up

(Disclaimer: This is not generalized: any "Do" also can also look ugly and any "Don't" fabulous)

  •  Use a bit of light pink lip stick and dab it with your fingers on your lips. Just on the middle and leave out all the sides. You can also use an orange shade. (like at Rag & Bone)
  • Curl your lashes. The effect is much bigger than you think, even if it looks a bit weird before you put mascara on.
  • Apply mascara only on the tips of your lashes. That's perfect for a day look. 
  • Emphasize the eyes with eyeliner and leave the lips natural like at Louis Vuitton, Valentino and DKNY(2)
  • Red lips. If you're able to do the 'perfect red lip'- do it (like D&G)! But don't use a too dark shade and keep the eyes simple: Just use transparent mascara.
  • Use sun protection even in winter. There is sun, and this sun can damage your skin.
  • Paint your nails in a colour than matches your lip stick (like Pilotto). Also, a brown shade is very in at the moment (see Chanel)
  • Create your own eye shadow/eyeliner: mix mascara and eye cream until it becomes paste-like. It will look like the Eye shadow thing from MAC which you can use as eye liner (the application with a small brush is much easier than any other eyeliner) or as creamy base, which is good for night make-up or New Years eve. (Yep! I'm thinking of New Years Eve even if there's more than one month left!)
  • Use light brown eyeshadow! Did you notice that so many runway make-ups do include it?(Chloe, Gucci , Proenza Schouler (also above)...) I guess this will be very big soon!

  • Rouge. Just leave it. Due to cold your cheeks will be naturally soft pink and it will look very fake with rouge.
  • Cream foundation. In winter your skin is very dry so cream foundation will cause flaked skin.
  • Too much powder. A very matte teint looks unheathy, so it's okay to shine a bit. At the fashion shows they always use a special highliter on the cheekbones, so that they gleam, you can simply use a transparent lipbalm.
  • The lipgloss thing. It will not only dry out your lips but also look sticky. Better, you use lip balm. If you are really into lip gloss, though, you should make sure that a) the colour looks natural and b) you put the lipgloss ON your lips, not all over your mouth area.
  • (Brown eyeshadow, as mentioned above, is awesome) Against, brown eyeliner looks aweful- no matter which eye colour you have.

There are many more, but actually I'm mostly in love with her street style appearance and backstage pics:

Street Style and Backstage:
Her favourite brand is Acne and she wears the T by Alexander Wang almost the whole time. I guess the thing that makes her really speacial is this rock'n'roll attitude and 'Rebel' image, which is really cool and inspiring. She's my favourite model at the moment.
