“The earth has music for those who listen.” — George Santayana



● The past couple of days I've been exploring the city with my wonderful friend (and soulmate) Valeria. If you don't know her blog yet, make sure to check it out- if you like mine, chances are you'll adore hers even more :) The pictures above are some impressions of our wanderings which I posted on Instagram.  I finished my three-week Spanish course and am now enjoying some quiet days at home before heading to Italy by train next week. Adventurous times ahead!

And since my little giveaway is closed by now, it's time to announce the lucky winner! All valid entries were placed in chronological order and the winner was picked via Random.org. ● Herzlichen Glückwunsch an dich, liebe Thi! Du wirst in Kürze eine E-Mail mit dem Gewinncode bekommen :)

Vintage Levis shorts | floral kimono, short lace leggings and shirt c/o Oasap

Happy Sunday everyone! I hope you're enjoying those summery days. I have to confess I'm not that much into the heat myself, I'm more of an autumn/spring child. Don't get me wrong, I love ice cream, warm summer nights and the sea, but I could gladly go without sticky hands, sweaty clothes and greasy eyeliner, ugh.
But let me quickly sum up what I've been up to since my last post. I'm currently attending a three-week Spanish course which I'm enjoying very much, and I also attempted to change my hair colour according to the season and used Lush's henna (in the shade of caca rouge). I love a nice shade of red in my hair and I wanted something natural that has not been tested on animals, thus I chose this particular brand and product. Applying it was a total mess (I have been warned beforehand, so I was prepared) but the whole procedure was kind of funny and I'm quite happy with how it turned out, although I was a bit surprised that it didn't end up more intense. I think it's washing out/getting lighter quite fast, so let's see what I'll do to my hair in the future :) I'm observing that I've become so much less concerned about what other people think about my personal taste (hair style, etc) and that makes me happy, it's fun to experiment with hairstyles and colours (deep in my memory I can recall a teenage me being very upset and convinced the blode dye turned out yellow).
And one last note (from the narrator: I am haunted by humans sorry), I am so obsessed with kimonos, especially floral ones. They're so comfortable, elegant and floating around your waist like a soft breeze.

“Moons and years pass by and are gone forever, but a beautiful moment shimmers through life a ray of light.” ― Franz Grillparzer



Summertime is a very special time of the year. We seem to let go of the heavy burdens that we struggle with throughout the darker days. We feel the urge to go out, explore the beauty and wonders the world beholds, and often we have the courage to try things we usually tend to avoid. When summer ultimately comes to an end, we cherish the moments we have collected to cheer us up when everything seems dull and empty.

Die Sommerzeit ist eine ganz besondere Zeit. Es scheint, als würden plötzlich all die Lasten, die uns in der dünkleren Jahreszeit belasten, von unseren Schultern genommen werden. Wir wollen hinaus ins Grüne, die Welt und all ihre Wunder entdecken. Oft haben wir sogar den Mut, endlich Dinge auszuprobieren, die wir uns sonst eigentlich nicht trauen würden. Und wenn sich der Sommer schlussendlich zu Ende neigt, bewahren wir die schönen Momente in unserer Erinnerung, um uns auch später stets aufs Neue ein Lächeln ins Gesicht zu zaubern.

Levis shorts | faux leather tribal pattern shoulder bag and candy color loose shirt c/o Oasap | Vintage blazer

Hello, lovelies. I hope you're well! Can you believe it's May already? I know I'm a little late, but thank you for all your suggestions concerning books and TV shows. I finished watching Teen Wolf and to my own surprise I really enjoyed it. It started like one of those shows you just watch to have a good laugh and talk about silly scenes with your friends (Derek stalking high school students in the shower was hilarious), but it got darker and better and I was hooked all throughout the third season. Apart from that I've been neglecting my Goodreads reading challenge a bit these past weeks (I'm blaming university). Actually I am currently quite motivated for everything except blogging. I haven't used my DSLR in ages, but I'm taking Instagram snapshots wherever I go.
Are you watching the Eurovision Song Contest this Saturday? I know it's just about the show, catchy tunes and the same countries giving each other 12 points every year, but I'm always looking forward to it.
PS: It seems like my beloved Levis shorts are making a return. Those of you who've been following me for a while probably remember I was very fond of them two years ago.
