How pinterest ruins my life

hello world
as we are all huge suckers for pinterest, everyone of us already has tried some DIYs or recepies or hair and make-up tutorials and failed badly. So was me with this hairstyle i tried it out now 3 or 4 times. The first time ended in a mess of hair with a lot of knots in it and me trying to brush it out again for 15 minutes. But i love the look of that bun and as it says it's easy it must be me who is just stupid.

i am also wearing my high-waist jeans together with a plain black t-shirt and my wrapping cardigan

so let's analyze that tutorial. my hair is about 5 cm longer than the one from the model. but also my hair is fractious and very smooth. so i never can make this hairstyle with fresh washed hair and i definitfly need some hairspray and bobby pins. for twisting around the ponytail itself i bought at DM one of those thingies a hair whatever loop. With the help of this little guy i could wrap my hair around itself twice, which made it short enough for step 7, which is braiding it. so... quite right but still not like that. i will try more and reveal the secrets of this specific hairstyle.

What was your biggest pinterest fail? Or are you quite perfect and can do even better than those pinterest pinners.

Winter capsule wardrobe shopping

Hello world!
i am planning right now my winter capsule wardrobe. most of my autumn wardrobe will move over. but i will have some things exchanged because they're worn off. These all have been things i had already for longer time, so it's not that they're worn off after three months. But especally some things had a not so good quality in keeping their color. I only wash my clothes by maximum of 40°C with color-protection washing agent.

Other things i will change is because the weather is much colder than in the beginning of autumn which is mostly a pair of shoes and a jacket. I also hope that i can finish my knitting project over christmas. Right now i am knitting a very comfy dress which i would love to have in my winter wardrobe. And i already have a next project on my todo list which is a knitted cape/poncho.

In the last three month i quit completely on clothes shopping except for some tights, because i destroy them on the go. So when i did get back to shopping now, i made a plan before what pieces i want to throw out of the closet and what kind of clothes i want to be back in. This helped me to keep myself straight on the shopping plan and nothing like "oh this shirt looks cute, and how about that dress?".

i also don't had enough time to go shopping here in local stores, which is kind of sad. because i hate sending clothes back which i often have to do, because of my special kind of body type. So i choosed to buy only at one online-store. So that i don't have to bring back 5 different packages. My mostly loved online shop is dorothy perkins but sending back parcels is totally annoying because you have to send them back to england. but i already made quite good experience with the fitting of dorothy perkins clothes so i wanted to order there. unfortunately they did not have any throusers i wanted, so i changed my mind and ordered at about you

here is what i ordered:
winter wardrobe shopping

How are your shopping behaviours? Do you love better to go to local stores and try clothes directly or are you an online shopper? do you buy directly more than one size to send the rest of it back? or are you like me and avoid sending back stuff?

Hello world,

last week we had our annual company hackathon. Usually hackathons only last over one weekend where you don't sleep, drink to much club mate and eat cold pizza from the delivery service. At DaWanda things are a little bit different. We hack for one week during office ours. For that we sneak out our usual office rooms and stay at the co-working space next to our office. It was a great week with super nice hacks to show what ideas we as developers have and also what things we can make with our new GEMs and APIs we did build over the year.

Daylight steampunk

Hello world
in Winter i mostly love wearing skirts and dresses (don't aks me why *g*) but i also have some trousers. This one has stripes and cute little zippers on the ankles. Of course i had to shorten these as 90 percent of all other jeans and trousers i own. But i wanted to keep the zippers, so i sew them back in again. Alltogether this is kind of a daylight steampunk outfit.

I am also wearing one of my basic black shirts plus vest. As Accessoires i am wearing a handmade octopus pin i bought at mauerpark flea market and a necklace with a magnify pendant.

Let there be glitter!

hello world!

There are some days where i just ne a big touch of glitter to brighten up my world. But on other days even glitter does not help. For those days i have a cat-ear headband! Here is an outfit somehow between bussiness, goth and crazy catlady. Just purrfect for me to brighten up the day.

additional to the cat ears and glitter eyeliner i am wearing: basic black shirt, blazer and my mostly loved (and quite death) lace-layerd skirt.

What do you do, when you have to brighten up your day?

German corner:

Es gibt diese Tage, an denen brauche ich defintiv Glitzer um meine Welt ein bisschen fröhlicher zu gestalten. An anderen Tagen wiederum, hilft nicht einmal mehr Glitzer. Für solche Tage gibt es aber Katzenohren-Haarrreifen! das Outfit hier ist irgendwas zwischen bussiness, goth und crazy-catlady. Somit perfekt für mich und den Tag ein bisschen fröhlicher zu gestalten.
Was macht ihr denn so, um euch den Tag ein bisschen zu erhellen?

DaWanda Designmarkt am 1. Adventwochenende

Letztes Wochenende fand in Berlin erneut der DaWanda Designmarkt statt. Die perfekte Gelgenheit um Weihnachtsgeschenke zu shoppen und inspiration zu bekommen. Bei inzwischen doch sehr winterlichen Temperaturen (-3°) machte ich mich am Adventsonntag auf zur Alten Münze in Berlin Mitte. Die länge der Wartesschlange war schier unglaublich. Auf anstehen bei der Kälte hatte ich natürlich wenig lust. Schlauer Fuchs wie ich bin, hatte ich mir aber bereits im Voraus Gästelistenplätze gesichert. So konnte man erhobenen Hauptes an der Schlange der bibbernden Vorbei um Einlass in die Heiligen Hallen zu bekommen.

The comfort zone dress.

Hello world! 
Some years before i allways believed that dresses are allways fancy party fashion. so that they would not work for my everyday wardrobe. Bur now i wear dresses and skrits quite as often as jeans or shorts. This dress is one of my most loved ones and i have a quite similar one with short sleeves for the warmer times of the year. I totally love wearing it together with a belt. Today it's -1°C so i also put on a cardigan over the dress in which i can wrap myself to keep away the cold. Together with a scarf it is super comfy, warm and cute outfit. perfect for sunday brunch or a visit of the DaWanda Designmarket.
Do you also love dresses? which is your favourite one? Do you know the DaWanda Designmarkets? I will probaply make a wednesday post about it.

Red Riding Hood

Hello world!

As you all know from my detailed whats in my closet post, i only have one colorful item in there. It's a screaming red coat. Before i bought this coat i only had dark or black coats. But when i did start planning my London-vacation wardrobe (anyone interested in seeing this?) i saw that coat on dorothy perkins and had to buy it. But in the end, i did not take it with me to my London trip because the weather was still very warm when we did go there. This was the first time when i did wear that coat.

Unpacked: ebelin konjac sponge

Hello world!
since some weeks dm brand ebelin now has a konjac sponge in their portfolio. I did hear about these sponges since some time on other blogs but i never wanted to buy one online, because i did not want to make an extra order just for such a tiny thing. But now i was even more happy to find them just in the drugstore around the corner

The cat tights

Hello world!
i saw those cute cat-face-on-your-knees tights allover pinterest and i really wanted to have one of these. But i thought "will they fit me? will the kitty be on the knee or somewhere else? how will it look like on a tiny person like me?". Then i saw them a my favorite tights dealer calzedonia for only 9 euros. And i did just throw all my negative thoughts out of the window and bought them right away. here is the outfit i was wearing together with them.

  • Tights: calzedonia
  • Skirt: H&M
  • Shirt: C&A

Capsule wardrobe autumn

Hello world!
last time i mentioned to show you what finally got into my capsule wardrobe. My limit was 37 pieces including handbags and shoes. In the end i was on 38 pieces, which is just fine because the 37 was just a number i wanted as orientation. In the beginning i tought i will never be able to just use this small amount of clothes, but when i started picking the pieces out of the wardrobe it was much easier than i tought. The only thing which was hard to decide was about my tee-fury & co shirts. i have many nerdy shirts from various one-shirt-per-day pages and i love all of them. but i said i only pick up one for the atumn capsule and will wear to other ones when the weather is warmer and i don't have to hide them under a cardigan.
As a recap of my closet i have to say i only wear black clothes. Most of the clothes i already have around since many years so o only did buy four new items for this wardrobe. I also only buy kind of cheap brands, which i will now try to avoid in the future and invest money in more environment and economic friendly brands and try to have an eye on organic fabrics. But on the other hand i also try not to buy so many new clothes. So for every new piece i buy an old one will get thrown out of the closet.

Vintage Computing Festival Berlin

Hello world!
Well it's already over a month ago but i still would like to tell you something about this tiny event and show some of the pictures i did take there.
The event did take place at the 4th and 5th of october at the Pergamon Palais in Berlin, which is near the S-Bahn Station Friedrichstraße. The entry was "pay at your own will" and organized by the afra (Abteilung fpr Redundanz Abteilung e.V) together with the help of the Chaos Computer Club and the Computermuseum at Uni Stuttgart.

Why having a capsule wardrobe

Hello world!

Since october i started a new (at least for me) experiment called capsule wardrobe. As i love fashion a lot but have problems finding the right fitting things ( pullovers are usually to long everywhere that i can wear most of them as dress) i often buy clothes that just fit rarely.
