s.Oliver Glasses

I told you about my bad days last week. My glasses had broken after 6 (!!) years. On Friday I immediately ran to the optometrist and I've chosen new glasses. It has become s. Oliver glasses. They look a little bit retro and I'm so happy with them! I haven't been looking forward to something for so long. What do you think about my new glasses. Do you like the color?

Grandma's Sewing Machine

In the attic of my grandparents I found this gem! The machine was built about 1900 or even earlier. The Electra sewing machine still works (non-electric, of course). But I think it would be a nice eye-catcher in my first apartment. I guess, that would be a better place for such a beautiful piece =)

What A Girl Need

To my Clinique Anti-Blemish Solutions I've bought also the moisture surge and a city block sheer with SPF 25. My face feels great now. Reborn. 
I wasn't able to resist the Manhattan & Buffalo nail polish. I'll show you later how it looks on the nails.
PS: I become a huge fan of the Clinique products. I feel so great with them.

Cha Cha

On Friday I met a friend for dinner. We haven't seen each other since vacation in July and there was plenty of talk needs. Unbelievable what all happens in almost two months. We went to the Cha Cha. My friend had an aloe vera drink and spicy curry rice. I took a berry-kiwi fruit drink and the "variation of dunkys". Looks yummy right? Unfortunately, I forgot my camera at home and I had to shoot the photos with the iPhone. So sorry for the bad quality.

Bad Days

Maybe you've read my tweet on Twitter already. The luck has left me for a couple days! First, the train had technical problems, then I'm almost lost in work and my bike was made broken ​​by some idiots. When I got up on friday morning and wanted to put on my glasses, I need to find (to make matters still worse) that my glasses are broken. Only a week ago I've had using new glasses. What a bummer! I was already very late and I need as quickly as possible to get ready for work. Good thing I finally dared to contact lenses and had a pair at home.

I immediately contacted my optician and explained my situation. Unfortunately, my glasses frame is no longer available and I have to choose new glasses (which is not necessarily a bad thing ;)). But it costs a lot, because of the glasses (I'm nearly blind..). I can pick up new glasses even until the middle of next week. So I ordered some lenses which I should get today. Unfortunately, I'm unable and almost didn't bring those things out of my eyes in the evening.

uff, it can only get better.. Happy weekend ;)

Fall Favorites

The leaves on the trees are colorful and the people on the streets fit to the colors of nature. Few (me included) can't come to terms with the fact that  summer or even the summer weather is over. But it rains more often and the streets becomes more and more empty for the evening. People prepare their homes for the cold fall and winter months and buy new boots and a lot of tea.

Fall is not my favorite season but I absolutely love the typical colors! Here are a few of my favorite pieces.

The Large Single Polka-Dot Leather Bag by Marc Jacobs - Net-A-Porter
Ruched Crepe Blouse by Miu Miu - Net-A-Porter

But I still hope that summer is forever....

La - La - Lace

For me there is nothing more elegant than a garment made of lace.

Blouses, pants, shoes decorated with lace or even made ​​of lace. HQ Market has some great pieces in the online shop and I would like to show you a few of them.

I was very surprised when I was at my regular pharmacy and actually discovered a small selection of OPI nail polishes. Of course I could not just walk past it, but bought the "Jade Is The New Black" nail polish.

In addition, I have finally bought some Clinique products.
Since I have very bad skin, I opted for the "Anti-Blemish Solutions" Products. I use this now for about a week every morning and night and really noticed an improvement already. So thumbs up for Clinique.

Switzerland's Provence

A few weeks ago was the hottest day in 2011. My friend and I packed our beach stuff and looked for a comfortable spot on a lake. Because we wanted at location, where we've never been, we drove around for a while. Unfortunately, we quickly realized that not only we were yearn for a cooling, but also hundreds of other people. We decided to reverse and drove to our place where we are otherwise. On the way we drove through a beautiful village named Nant. My friend and I decided to come here later again.

Yesterday, we packed our cameras (By the way, I've bought the Nikon D5100 =)), and driven back again. The houses and the surroundings look like a village in the Provence region of France. Everything is very mediterranean and the vineyards give a real feeling to be in France. Here are some pictures:
Unfortunately I am still not proficient with the SLR ..
