reiss 1971

some more what-i-want-to-look-like. im really gravitating towards simple pieces lately, a bit more grown-up and sophisticated but still somehow rock'n'roll-ish.. therefore im completely in love with everything in the reiss 1971 lookbook (even the model's hair but that's another post)

nailed

just got home from a 13-hour workday, yeeha! so quick post.
i was playing with the try-it-on application on the opi website yesterday (you can even adjust the hand to your skintone and nail-length, so fun!) and found the two colours i want my nails to be this winter, basically brownish greys, i love that they're kinda scummy and grungy.
what do you think? what colours are you planning for next season?

these days

back to work on monday after 10 days off.
got a major big stuff coming up with fresh job-responsibilities, the reopening of one of our stores which was closed for refurbishment, 3 weeks of training abroad (budapest, bratislava and barcelona, any tips?), two big weddings of good friends, the boyfriend taking part in two art exhibitions... definitely looking forward to autumn.
i usually complain about summer but here's some stuff that was good about this one:

the boyfriend working - i love it when he's concentrating * yummy barbeques

sometimes i forget how pretty island-living can be

sales bargains (39,99 from 119,99!!) * and catching up on sleep

cyprus beer and meze * grilled octopus with olive oil, lemon and fresh parsley

popcorn and strawberry daquiris  * hanging out at the pool

more beachy stuff

shots and cakes

bright flowers * more boyfriend working (with a new haircut!)

rubik


old tshirt, topshop harems, jeffrey campbell clogs, springfield necklace, swatch watch

treated myself to this little rubik's cube pendant a few weeks ago
i love how every angle has different colours. glad its not a real rubik though, i could never do them!
