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.
