an alle meine deutschen leser und selbst-blogger-leser: auf kickis blog gibts dieses jahr das kuriose blogger-wichteln, funktioniert so: jeder teilnehmer kann sich für eine kategorie entscheiden, also entweder food, clothing, accessoires oder beauty und bekommt dann einen partner zugelost, es wird dann fröhlich geshoppt und päckchen versendet! schaut vorbei und macht mit, oder schaut einfach nur vorbei, der blog ist nämlich mega gut (;
remember how i told you about my great fisheye-deal i grabbed at the lomography store munich closing sale? i shot two films over the summer and i thought i would share them! i love the funny bubble effect and i think a fisheye is the best camera for party and festival shots! the photos were taken at the rock im park festival, the utopia island festival and during a trip to italy in the car.
i wanted to order at UO for the longest time, in the end i never did, because all their awesome stuff is just too expensive.. well thank god there's sale. so i went through the urban outfitters online store and spotted a bunch of amazing stuff in their sale section and there i go, i just had to order. (especially because i had a -20% code!)
1 sparkle & fade cut-out dress
2 terrible movement beverly kills shirt
3 truly madly deeply panter stud crop top
4 reason ain't laurent beanie
5 find & keep book
6 bamboo earrings
normally i would've payed 219€ for that stuff, but on sale and with my discout i payed just 84€, made me save 135€ - who on earth would shop the normal prices?
if you want to get some of that stuff for yourself, i'm afraid to tell you that most of it sold out by now, but there are still some more cool things left at their shop, so check it out!
if you're an architecture or design student, you'll know what i'm talking about: what the hell are we gonna do with all of those paper models? i'm always split, on the one hand it took a lot of time to build those things but on the other hand, they're just standing around in your room and get covered in dust, but it's really hard to get rid of them, to just throw them out, it kinda hurts in your heart - you know what i mean..
so i had a big project this year, concerning an old and unused bunker in the city of munich. we had to develop a concept for a mixed use, two different functions combined in one building. we could do whatever we wanted, and i decided to fill that thing with water and turn it into a scuba diving center, combined with a night club that involves a glass tunnel that leads through the water. it ended up in having to build a model, of course. it took me four days and nights to complete it, one entire day of that i just spend building that glass tunnel.. my concept was kinda complicated in it's geometry, i had a lot of polygons and stuff so i had to do a super fancy flip-open model.. i guess you can understand why i'm not ready to throw it away yet.. so i thought of something different..
i was in desperate need for some kind of jewellery and makeup organization, so i just filled up that model, wich actually looks a bit like a doll house, with my stuff and it all fits in or on perfectly.. well i'm not that much of a makeup-freak, i got my eyeliner and mascara and i'm ready to go.
here's my tip for all those who don't study design or produce any kind of model at university: the easiest way to create some kind of a minature model is chipboard and wood glue, just build up a fantasy building, cinderella castle or whatever you like, it just may take a bit of time.. or ask me six months from now, i'm sure i'll have some more models leftover for you.. haha.
i kinda got kicked back to blogging by VanBranch, a special online store from berlin, that sells custom and handmade wooden plugs and tunnels. they've got some really beautiful jewellery there and so i really had to share it with you! i picked a tunnel called 'Schönleinstraße', its made of olive wood and ebony and it is seriously the nicest tunnel i own! it's perfectly made and feels just so natural in my ear! go check out their store and their facebook!
well, back to me and my miserable blogging.. i don't even remember the last post, it was ages ago, i'm terrible, i know! somehow i lost my enthusiasm to blog and i naturally found an excuse, being at uni for the summer semester.. but honestly, i could have blogged, and i would've had the time if i cut back my tv show addictions and other useless stuff, but now i realize i kinda missed blogging, i kept reading all my favourites but never felt the urge to write myself, maybe also because i really didn't have to tell that much, i didn't do anything spectacular, i didn't feel like i wore something special oder did a DIY i haven't done before.. well now i will try again, at least one or two posts a week, i do really have some small things to show you, some lomography, an upcycled jewellery holder, some fashion and some inspiration, well see! uni starts next week, i'm 3rd semester already, really hard to belive though.. and i've been living alone for almost a year now, that's kinda unbeliveable, too.
