new in: Max Mara sunnies

shame on me....this blog reflects very well my current consumption behaviour. I don't want to turn it into a pool of my new purchases and my desires. I promise there will be more creative posts very soon ;) But for now, let's focus on what I'm good at: Sharing what's new in my closet ;) Since I broke one of my favourite sunnies from Betsey Johnsen a couple of days ago, I needed something to cheer me up (god, I sound like a 12-year-old). And drum roll please.....I got these Max Mara sunglasses. They may look a bit Willy Wonka'ish, but I think they have the perfect shape and size.

new in: MAC cosmetics

I was looking for a bubblegum/barbie lipstick for ages and finally found one from Nicki Minaj's collection for MAC. The colour is very bright and bold but it will definitely look fantastic on tanned skin.
That was actually the first time ever me trying fake lashes. I have to say I love the effect. It opens the eyes and doesn't look unnatural. The flower hair clips are from H&M. btw, I'm a MAC newbie, so let's see if the "relationship" will last?!

end of an era.

decision.

So, this is how it feels to be free?

Waiting a long time for that feeling of not belonging to anyone, losing oneself and discovering life’s bright sides felt like a long journey without a destination. The summers moved on, the winters came, but still the end wasn’t in sight. Suddenly that busy and fast train stopped. Reaching that final stop is definitely not a surprise but disillusioning.
Disillusionment naturally goes hand in hand with disorientation. Having the wide spectrum of opportunities leaves one confused and lost. It's a state of being in transition. Being somewhere, but nowhere, like a ghost.
