Shine on you crazy diamond

Hi guys, another week has gone by and I'm here to show you another outfit I wore. Last Friday I finally did some shopping and I found this amazing leather skort. I've been seeing loads of skorts everywhere in the past year, but they never really caught my eye. This one on the other hand just spoke to me in the store and I had to get it. It incredibly comfortable to wear, really soft. And it looks absolutely gorgeous if I may say so! Okay so here are the photos.

So as I mentioned before I was wearing my new leather skort from Zara. On the top half I have this white fluffy jumper from H&M and my silver chain, also from H&M. Shoes and my coat are staples in my wardrobe and you have seen them before. Shoes are Y.R.U. and the coat is from Romwe. My nails are black with a OPI matte top coat and on my lips I have Maybelline's Oh La Lilac.

January is slowly coming to a close and these next few weeks will be a bit more relaxed for me. Only two tests until the end of February and that means I can start focusing more on some things outside school. To be honest I don't really do much other than school related work most of the school year. Books, writing, working out...all of these things are put on the side track, because I either don't have time or don't have the energy to do them. So now I'm determined to continue writing one of my stories, read a few books and, if there isn't any snow, go for a run. Maybe I'll post the story somewhere (not here of course) if anyone is interested in reading it...well probably not. Okay enough rambling for this week!

Enjoy and I love you guys! xx

The black and grey world

Hi guys! My post is late yet again, because my dad had a birthday yesterday and I came home quite late in the evening. So I have an OOTD for you and it's what I wore yesterday. Just a simple black outfit, because black on black on black is just the best colour combination! I also did some shopping yesterday (finally!) so I'm excited to show you what I bought. Now let's get on with the outfit. 

So, as I said, simple. The main piece is this lovely black bodycon dress, that has a gorgeous print (that you probably can't see). Over it I have my black faux fur coat that I've been literally living in and on my feet I have my T.U.K. creepers. My nails are black, with a matte overcoat and I for accessories I only have my silver chain necklace. 

If you're wondering why my dress is barely visible in most of the pictures, it would be because I don't really like any of them. Honestly I didn't feel that great with the dress hugging my body so tightly. How do you deal with gaining weight? We're all bombarded with images of what we are suppose to look like and we see ourselves differently because of that. Why should I have to be 5 kg lighter or 10 cm taller? That won't make my life better or easier in any way. But still we all strive for perfection. And it doesn't exist. We're all different and beautiful in our own way. I may find someone attractive that you don't and vice versa. So everyone is someone's idea of perfection. Not a lot of people can honestly say they like the way they look, and it's not because they aren't beautiful. It's because our image of ourselves is distorted by the media. And it's wrong, because kilograms don't define you, they don't define how much someone finds you attractive, they don't define the path of your life. And even though I'm telling you all of this, I still have a hard time putting it through my thick skull. One step at a time they say. Enough with the confessions!

I hope you all have a great weekend, thank you for reading and remember, you're beautiful!
Love you guys! xx

Somewhere in between

Hi guys, I'm back and I bring you another OOTD and I wore this outfit today. It has been quite warm these past couple of weeks, not a typical winter at all! The weather is very much spring-like and that was sort of the inspiration for my outfit. I wanted to bring a little summer into these winter days, even though this winter only exists on the calender. It's very nautical, stripes combined with rich blue tones just make me think of summer! So without further ado, here's the outfit.

I wore these blue shorts that are kinda big on me, because I bought them when I was a bit larger. On the top half I have a striped crop top from H&M and over it my mums cardigan in a similar blue colour as the pants. On my feet I had a pair of creepers from the brand T.U.K. and I also wore my black coat that I ordered on Romwe. My nails are a matte red colour and so is my lipstick with an orange undertone, which you probably can't see in these photos. It's very bright and vibrant to contrast the coldness of the outfit a bit. My eye make up is just basic winged liner and some mascara, nothing drastic. 

So yesterday (on Thursday) I wrote the first part of my post and than I feel asleep. I mean it makes sense, I barely had any sleep this week, not more than one or two hours a day. So it had to take it's toll sooner or later. And I didn't have to study so there wasn't any real harm done. At least I'm rested. 
So I know I'm writing my thoughts and opinions on the internet this very moment, but I think with all these social networks nowadays we share too much. I believe some things should be private or kept in your inner circle of friends. There's nothing wrong with talking about your opinion on things, but I often gets way too personal...well at least for some of us. You can literally find out anything about some people on the internet who you don't even know. And if you think that some cute guy from your school is reading it is seems okay, but what if that guy was 50, and he was stalking you and now he knows everything you just wrote. And he can contact you anonymously without you even knowing who he is. And people lie, that's just the way it is. Most people aren't who they say they are on the internet, either they're pretending to be another person or they just alter their personalities to your desires. I mean you could be talking to a serial killer and giving him your address. The other thing is sharing information that is between you and another person. By this I mostly mean sex related stuff or personal problems between friends or in a family environment. It's okay, you had sex with whoever, your friend did that and your mother said that, but the world doesn't need to know about it. Because what you post on the internet, stays there. We all just want to know more and more, and it's just time consuming. Instead of living a fantasy life and talking to people you don't know, why not go out and talk to your actual friends. I mean you can't really blame anyone else if you don't like your life and you do nothing about it but sit in front of the computer and complain to the masses of people possibly reading it. I may sound a bit hypocritical, because I am sitting in front of my computer atm and "talking" to people who read my blog, but it's not the same thing at all. Okay, so I rest my case.

Bye guys, I love you and thank you for reading! xx
