It’s been some time since my last entry but I’ve just been so awfully busy the last few days that I barely was able to keep up with commenting and let alone with blogging. My admission exams went like expected but I don’t need to worry. Life is so strange! There are phases when everything seems to be ok and quiet and suddenly everything changes. Well maybe not everything but many things. And autumn went by so fast. The stores are already selling christmas decoration as if it was winter and the trees that a week ago had all diefferent colored leaves look stark and wintery.
Oh my, I’m really not that good in writing about personal stuff but I’m trying. I feel a little sad at the moment but I know that it will go away again it’s just so awkward to have this feeling of being in limbo. And no, it’s not the weather that is getting on my mood, I love foggy mornings and grey skies as much as I like blue ones…
Anyway, remember my virtual shopping spree on polyvore? Well many of the featured items were crazy expensive and not buyable for me but one piece just wouldn’t leave my mind.
Yes! It’s the fox scarf from Aubin & Wills! I have to admit that it reminds me a little bit of fox fur scarves but I don’t really mind. Of course I wouldn’t wear real fur and the thought of having a dead animal around your neck is quite macabre but this cute fox doesn’t look dead to me and he’s a little too flat to look like a real fox.
As you can see, I implemented the nordic patterns. The black dress is a classic and wearable anytime, everywhere and the red boots were just too ‘my style’ to be left behind. Last but not least I decided to purchase my first Kabuki brushes! I already have pretty valuable and nice brushes but the hype over MAC’s duo fibre brush made me want to try a flat brush. As to me, I think that MAC’s duo fibre brush is not dense enough. I like to apply foundation as quick as possible so for me a denser brush just works faster. An other thing about MAC’s duo fibre brush that didn’t convince me, is the lenght of the fibres. They’re too long for my taste! If you apply the foundation with too much pressure the fibres will bow and reduce the stippling effect. I don’t know if the Sigma Kabuki brushes are duo fibre brushes but one of them is flat and that’s what I was looking for. Also, the lenght of the fibres is much shorter than the one of MAC’s duo fibre brush. But I’m not going to review a brush I didn’t even try yet.
I still have many blushes I want to show you but since it’s winter now and I’m all pale, I can’t use many of the blushes anymore. Most of them are just too pink! Right now I need something more “natural” and earthy. At the moment I’m only using Bobbi Brown’s Tawny Powder Blush because it looks more serious than other blushes I have but I’m afraid it looks “muddy” on me because I’m too fair. So yeah, that’s quite a dilemma. All the blushes I bought during summer are too pink for winter and the only one I’m using right now is not perfect.
Enough said, here a small list of what happened recently or what is going to happen in the near future
visited for the first time the famous Café Schober in Zurich (lived here for 23 years but never been there)
cut my hair (nothing special but it was more than a year since my last cut)
going to meet みほちゃん again this sunday!
finally visiting a metal concert again after so long, tomorrow!
Just a tiny update of my life at the moment! Promise to be back soon with more interesting stuff
