Collective Haul~

Hello everyone!

Today, my promised collective haul!

I bought this things in the last few weeks and I hope you´ll like my purchases and bargains!

First, I got this awesome floral patterned blouse from New Look I showed you yesterday in my OOTD. It was reduced from 30€ to 12€, so it was a great bargain! Love the transparent look!

Me and my best friend, we also went to to Kiko. There, I bought this awesome lipstick. I love this beautiful berry pinkish red. It´s a perfect spring/summer colour! It´s "389, creamy" and I paid 3€ for it!

I also got this awesome nailpolish there. This colour is just amazing! I love the metallic turquoise greenish shimmer! The wearing comfort is awesome and the colour lasts quite well. I paid 4€.

I also went to "Lush" to buy my beloved "Honey I washed the Kids"- soap again. It´s the best soap ever and the honey/caramel smell is so amazing. I exactly paid 6€ for my piece.

Yesterday, I bought this awesome book! It´s about advertising, magazine covers and postcards which deal with the subject "surfing" in the past decades. I only paid 1€ for it! Here I have some interesting snap shots for you!

Love, Julia ♥

Fashion Trends Spring/Summer 2012

Hello everyone!

Today, I will show you the newest fashion trends for the next season!

I got some inspirational photos for this post from the latest German "Glamour"-magazine and from some commercial fashion shoots.

Hope you like this fashion forecast!

First of all, it´s clear that retro and vintage prints and clothes shape the next fashion season! There will be a lot of chiffon midi-skirts, pencil skirts, belly tops, feminine purses and sexy high heels in the following collections of reputable fashion brands but also in in the latest H&M/Zara/Mango...- collections.

"Black x White" is a fashion trend which will never get out of style! White is a clear and fresh colour and brightens up every outfit. Dark colours like black or navy blue will give your outfits a classy and casual finish. In combination to white it´s feminine and very chic to wear pearl necklaces or other accesoires.

Another big trend for the next season will be bright pastel colours, flowing fabrics and lovely flower prints. Light green, blue or rose are perfect colours for spring and in combination to silk or chiffon fabrics or flower printed accesoires a great eye-catcher.

In contrary to that there will also be more animal prints like snake, tiger or leopard. New items are tie-dyed clothes which are great in combination to wooden accesoires in Ethno/ African style.

Another awesome trend are silken cloths and foulard prints. Instead of only wear them around the neck or as a turban for summer, you can also convert them to dresses, blouses or to shoe covers. D&G have currently presented their new collection in which they used a lot of awesome foulard prints (see photos above!).

I also found some really nice commercial shoots which are very inspirational. "Emporio Armani" and "Chanel" did a great job with their retro fashion. I love the 50s and 70s charme of these photographs!

Hope you did like this little fashion forecast for spring and summer 2012!
Wish all of you an inspirational day tomorrow!
Love, Julia ♥

Cooking Ideas : "Okonomiyaki" / Second Hand Finding

Hello everyone!

Today, I show you a great cooking idea!
At lunchtime, I decided to make some okonomiyaki which is a japanese type of tartly pancake with a lot of ingredients. There are a lot of different types of okonomiyaki, there a are some with seafood or bacon or some with noodles which are called "Modanyaki".

I had´t a lot of ingredients at home, so I only mixed flour with some water to get a sticky dough. Then I chopped some cabbage which I mixed under the dough. I added some salt and then the chopped chicken.

I cooked it for about 8 minutes in a pan until it got a nice crispy crust.

Then, I served it with some soy sauce, mayonnaise and chopped cabbage!

Yesterday, I had my japanese lessons in the afternoon and after that, I went to town to go to the secondhand shop. There I found this amazing shirt which has a nice golden pattern in the front. It´s a little too big for me, so I will wear it inside my bottoms or skirts. I only paid 5€ for it!

Now I have to learn for my maths class test on Tuesday, but before, I trink a cup of my favourite black tea!

Hope you´d liked this blog post!

It´s just amazing and bright enough for my skin!
