Zooanimals

Hello Ladies,

so yesterday I was in Vienna. I actually did nothing special, the boyfriend needed some help with picking out a jean, then we went home to watch "Star Trek Voyager" and ate cheese ^^ Sounds boring but I enjoy it so much. It's just relaxing and I needed to relax after what happened to me on the subway -.-

The Viennese subways have glass walls left and right to the doors and behind the glass walls are seats facing the inside of the train. I got on the subway, minding my own business, writing a message on my phone but when I looked up, there was a woman sitting behind one of those glass walls, holding up her phone (she held it next to the glass wall so she would get a better view) in my direction to take a picture. Normally I look at those people with disgust and disrespect and shake my head to make them feel ashamed but the outrageously bold way this woman took a picture made me walk over to her.

"Do I look like a zoo animal to you?"
She looked at me puzzled.
"Do I look like a rare zoo animal to you that you feel the need to take a picture of me?"
She still refused to answer me.
"Would you please delete that picture you made. It's illegal to take pictures of random strangers without their permission, you know?"

Before she could answer me the train stopped in my station and I had to get off. People are so rude. I would never even think about taking a picture of a stranger. Maybe if Iron Man stepped on the train... but he would strike a pose for me before he hacked my phone to delete the picture ^^
To be fair, I looked quite awesome yesterday ;) I understand why she would want some of the awesome and photos "last longer" (<== Bubbles DeVeres catch phrase).


Dress, Socks, Bag: Angelic Pretty
Shoes: An*tai*na
Shades: H&M

 I love those shades but it really bothers me that I don't have matching shoes to this outfit. That's why I will probably sell it soon. Message me if you are interested. I also have matching jewelery and a cardigan that I would give away XD

Hopefully you are having a great week so far. Tell me your "rude people take pictures of me"-stories in the comments :D

Momoko-chan

Wow! 2 weeks without a blogpost and now I'm only writing this on my phone while I'm on the train.

I felt so much like Momoko (from the movie "Kamikaze Girls") today. Let me show you why:


Do you see what I mean? That's the train station where I was waiting for the train. I kid you not. It's ridiculously small and unimportant ^-^

Not living in Vienna can be quite lonely but like Momoko I try to make the best of it :D The internet connects us all in the end.

I will try to blog more often but living in this super boring small town, nothing that I do seems blog-worthy ;) Also... I'm super messy and most of the time I can't take pictures in my room without showcasing the mess that needs to be cleaned up XD

Have a nice week!

Crazy Lenses!

Hello Ladies!

This Saturday is the next "Schwarzer Reigen" gothic prom and about a week ago it came to me that I need white lenses for my outfit ^^ At first I didn't take it too serious, it was just one of those ideas that spin around my head, in the middle of the night when I'm watching documentaries to pass the time XD

But the next day the idea was still there, I did some research and actually found an Austrian site that sells all kind of lenses, among others white lenses:


This are the ColourVUE Crazy Lense in "WhiteOut". They are not "dioptric adjusted". So if you usually wear glasses, the lenses won't help you see. Also, you shouldn't drive your car when you are wearing them. Well, I "see" why they put that on the package but I don't think it's a problem. Your vision gets a little blurry on the outside but it's not too bad.


Already ordering a pair of lenses I decided another one wouldn't hurt and I wanted circle lenses for quite a while now. This are the ColourVUE Big Eyes in "Dolly Black". They do come "dioptric adjusted" up to -8.00. That's pretty good I think.

I never wore lenses in my life before and since I ordered the lenses online, there was no one that could give me a lesson on how to put in lenses. That's why I looked at tutorials on youtube. There are some really good tutorials from professionals, who know what they are talking about. It's actually not that difficult to put them it, you just have to get over the fact that you put something in your eye. My eyelids were uncontrollably twitching. It was really bad but it worked out in the end.

The lenses are uncomfortable in the beginning, it feels like there is something in your eye (duh... because there is something in your eye) but you get over it quite fast once you got used to wearing lenses. From time to time it feels like the lenses are about to pop out of my eye but they are not. I even had a hard time getting them out. Maybe I'm paranoid but my eyes feel a little dry and I'm constantly using eye drops. If you are wearing lenses, tell me if you feel the same and if that is normal.

If you want to order circle lenses I highly recommend you to get the ColourVUE Big Eyes. You only have one pair of eyes and you need to take care of them. Ordering and wearing cheep lenses from Korea or China can harm your eyes. I don't want that happening to you!

Do you wear lenses, especially circle lenses? Do you like the way they make you look? I'm not sure if I like the circle lenses. They creep my out ^^ I rather wear the WhiteOuts than the Dolly Blacks!

My pink parasol

Today I had to pick up my little brother from school.

Normally he would go home alone but because his class was on a field trip and he probably really tired afterwards, my mom wanted me to pick him up. I can't tell you how much I didn't want to go outside ^^ it's a 15 minute walk to my brothers school, with no shadows and hardly any refreshing, cool breezes. But he is my little brother and he likes it when he doesn't have to go home alone.

So I decided to suck it up and deal with the heat when suddenly an idea hit me. I can totally wear out my parasol! That's what it is made for anyway but funnily enough I felt stupid wearing my pink umbrella with jeans and T-Shirt. Also the jeans were tweaking my belly and felt really uncomfortable today. A pink dress on the other hand would match the umbrella, was light and airy and wouldn't pinch my belly... :D

Pink dress it was!


Dress: Angelic Pretty
Parasol: Baby, the Stars shine bright
Shoes: Palladium

Point of fashion: wear something matching to my pink parasol, that doesn't twitch my belly.

Btw, Palladium makes the shoes for the French Foreign Legion and those flats are the most comfortable flats I have ever worn in my live! They are pricey but worth every cent.

I feel a little ridiculous that I changed into the dress only so it would match the parasol. I took it off as soon as the picture was done and I was at home again. What do you think about it? ^^

Head Band Idea Gone Wrong XD

Hello!

I think I mentioned before, that I have a hard time sleeping but I'm not sure. Anyhow, I have a hard time sleeping. Well, that's not true ^^ it's just that I can't fall asleep and don't stay asleep very long XD

But I don't mind it too much (though I like to whine about it from time to time :P) because not getting enough sleep makes me really creative. Most of it is rubbish and not usable, some of it is quite good and I can actually make something of it and then there is a small percentage, that looks amazing in my head and turns out so so bad! Long story short, that happened last night:


Excuse the mess in the background. Work sometimes gets messy. But look at that ridiculousness! What on earth was I thinking? Cat skulls with giant patent leather bows on them on a headband... What? Really? I don't even... And to top it of, this insanity took me 3 hours to make.

Now it's standing on my desk and every time I look at it all I can do is giggle. It's hideous and absurd and preposterous. I mean, look at it! It's laughable ^^

At 2am I thought it would look really cute with a gothic Lolita outfit but I guess my brain was not functioning right at that time. Maybe if the bows weren't that enormous...

Have a nice Sunday!
