(My) Necessities

Tags

, , , , , , , , , , ,

My iPhone is definitely my #1 necessity. It’s just so practical and I consider it to be an accessory to my outfit. It’s extremely useful and I can basically do anything on it so I cannot imagine having another phone after owning an iPhone.

Mascara is a go-to product for me. Even if I’m not wearing makeup, mascara will give me the little boost of confidence I need. It’s quickly applicable so if no makeup then at least a bit of mascara. Who knows who I’ll have to bat my lashes at? ;)

A tint of color on your lips is crucial. It can brighten up your day or outfit by just adding a color. My Chanel lipstick is glossy and more chapstick-y than a normal lipstick and it shimmers so I LOVE it.

Glasses are a necessity for me because if I don’t wear them I get a headache. I would usually put Advil on my list of necessities but since my glasses tend to prevent headaches I scratched it off the list.

A pair of earrings that will glam up any outfit – or in fact any statement jewelry is a necessity. If you are busy the entire day and are wearing something a bit simpler but are going out for drinks with your girls in the evening it is so easy to whip out a pair of statement earings to glam up your outfit. A must-have!

Much Love,

5 Easy Steps to a Spring Day and Night Look

Tags

, , , , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

I tried out a makeup look today from my Bobbi Brown Make-up Manual and created my own twist and version of it.

Basically the look was to pop some color to your eyes by using a bright eyeshadow. I tried it out with green and blue making the green eyeshadow more of a day look and the blue eyeshadow a night look.

1st I just applied a white base color and then created a cat eye rim around my eye with a blue eyeshadow and blended it in. Then I took a dark blue and made a line on the crease of my eye to create a bit of a smokey-eye affect.

2nd I took some glitter and applied it to the inner part of my eye allowing it to illuminate that area.

3rd I used a thick Kajal marker to create some definition and applied it below my lower lashes.

4th I popped on mascara and my look(s) were finished.

5th (Repeat same with green eyeshadow on other eye)

I used the NYX glamour – Soho Glam Collection.

GET READY FOR SUMMER

Tags

Necessities for girls to get properly ready for summer.

A beach scented moisturizer from Victoria’s Secret? A Vogue edition with gorgeous JLo on the cover? And some bling to attract a cute boy’s attention? You’ve come to the right post. This is how I like to get ready for the summer season.

Vogue edition: starring Jennifer Lopez (looking fabulously fit), sync or swim (the most fun way to work out), your best body ever (raise your metabolism and get better curves) and the fashion forecast (dreamy dresses, surprising colors etc).

Victoria’s Secret: Poolside Breeze water hyacinth and fresh dew. Ultra moisturizing hand and body cream (200 ml).

Necklace: Zara (Rose, white, turquoise gems).

Back to School!

Hey readers :)

Tomorrow school starts again for me. Sadly F & S graduated last year so I will no longer be able to see their beautiful faces in school! :( But I’m actually quite excited to get back to school since I was on a vacation for one month now and I could easily use the routine.

How do you all feel? How was your summer?

One critical point about getting back to school is your outfit! That’s always fun to debate about the night before. I’m planning on wearing this cute navy simple dress from Abercrombie&Fitch but my mind will probably change in the morning, like ALWAYS! (There will be a post up tomorrow on my back to school outfit – so keep in tune tomorrow)

I can’t wait for any feedback and I hope I get some from our readers.

Love,

A

WORKOUT AND FITNESS

Tags

Hey everyone!  :)

So since bikini season is coming up and I know how all girls strive to have the best bikini body possible I thought I would post something on that as well – namely my favorite work out as well as where I work out, what I wear, and my favorite music!

Favorite Workout?

I LOVE this app called Nike Training Club (NTC) which you can just pull up on your phone anywhere you are and you don’t need much. It really helps if you do the excercises properly – I was so sore the first couple of times I did it. If anyone has questions on how to use it then comment below but it’s pretty simple. I am now at the intermediate level so that means everything from crunches to medicine ball excercises. I will do a 30 minute workout using NTC and then go running for about 30 minutes depending on my day and how energized I am. ALSO I’ve heard to workout for one day and rest the second – I believe this works and I can’t find the time everyday so 3-4 times a week is good!

Where do I workout?

I workout at home because we have our personal gym with a running machine as well as a couple of weights and a medicine ball. It has everything I need and for post-workouts we have a sauna and a small dip in icecold tub which is freezing but so refreshing! We also have a TV so I like to watch CNN while running on the machine or some Friends just so that I get a little distracted, it helps me run longer and faster.

What  do I work out in?

I have so many workout clothes that I don’t even get a chance to actually wear all of them. That’s my guilty pleasure. I think it’s so important to wear something cute while working out so that you feel healthy and beautiful about your body. Most of my stuff is in pink and neon ;) I have the same nike running shoes that I have been using since I was about 14 and I just am not tired of them! I want to buy a pair of new ones soon, any recommendations? :)

What do I listen to?

I usually am not someone to listen to Rihanna and Lady Gaga but if you download a couple of remixes that really keep you going they are great! It just helps you get into workout mood and energizes you, even if that may not completely be your genre.

Here are some pictures of where I workout! Ps: Keep flashcards for school while you’re running, I flip through them while I am walking to warm up and them being there makes me feel a bit accomplished ;)

SUMMER HAUL

Hey ihr Lieben,

am Samstag waren wir zu dritt in einem Einkaufszentrum. Jedoch nicht allzu lange, da ich nachher noch etwas Anderes vorhatte ;)

Wir kauften hauptsächlich bei Bershka ein, wo ich schon lange nicht mehr war. Ich war überrascht von den Sachen, mir gefiel wirklich Einiges. Außerdem schauten wir noch bei H&M vorbei und in Drogerien. Ich kann es selbst fast nicht glauben aber ich habe mir einen Neonfarbigen-Rock gekauft, ich war von mir selbst überrascht da ich nur selten so kräftige Farben trage.

Ich habe mir den Rock in 2 Farben gekauft, während A & F sie sich auch mitgenommen haben, nur teilweise in anderen Farben. So können wir immer untereinander tauschen :) Das Gleiche haben wir mit den T-Shirts gemacht. Die Teile die ich gefunden habe waren richtige Schnäppchen und ich freue mich sie gefunden zu haben. Den Smoothie Maker finde ich richtig toll. Demnächst wird ein Rezept mit meinem Lieblingssmoothie online kommen.

Welche Farben tragt ihr im Sommer am Liebsten?

What are your favorite colors for summer?

Good afternoon readers :)

How are you all on this gorgeous day?
It’s so beautiful out and all I am doing is relaxing, enjoying the sun, and blogging! :)

I’m sitting outside right now in my bikini with some fresh orange juice and my laptop. The birds are tweeting for me and there are hardly any bees annoying me ;) How is the weather where you are reading from? What are your plans today?

I have a physics test tomorrow but I will start studying once it gets a bit windier and cooler, right now the weather is just so wonderful and everyone is in a good mood!

Ps: My bikini is from Calzedonia. If you don’t have access to the store check it out online! :)

Enjoy enjoy enjoy!
Love, A
