Getting ready for winter.

While J. is probably sunbathing and doing all kinds of stuff people do in summer the next couple of months (as it is summer in Australia), I am getting ready for winter in Germany. They say it is going to be one of the coldest winters in 100 years. I have done some shopping, so I will hopefully be prepared for that.
I bought some basic stuff, like gloves, hats, a woolen pullover/dress (in pastel pink! it's very big, so you can either wear it as pullover or a dress with a waist belt ), snoods (which I totally love this season) and padded shoes.

I especially love the shoes. They are in the style of Doc Martens and super comfy!

And as I currently love pastel colors, I bought some other stuff that I found pretty.

I have some nailpolish that goes with these colors (although I do not wear nailpoilish that often, as I like my nails the way they are).

I also like nailpolish in the classic red color, or grey and light red.

And I bought some magazines and books that I can read when it's cold outside. :)

Quote of the day

"You can't swing a Fendi purse without knocking over five losers. Where did all the great guys go?"
Samantha Jones

Why do men cheat?

It's official now: Actress Eva Longoria is divorcing her husband Tony Parker, the NBA star. During their three years marriage, Eva has spent most of the time working on her career, e.g. acting at our beloved show Despereate Housewives, while Tony was on the road with his NBA team. So one might assume that the couple just grew apart and that this might be the reason for their divorce. WRONG! Rumour has it that Tony Parker cheated on Eva - several times during their marriage! Many of us probably wonder, "How can someone cheat on a woman like Eva Longoria?!" Well, she wouldn't be the first beauty with an unfaithful husband...

Those times are over now: Tony Parker and Eva Longoria

 Also, Cheryl Cole filed for divorce at the beginning of this year, after football star Ashley Cole's alleged infidelity.

Their marriage lasted 4 years: Cheryl and Ashley Cole
 And certainly, we all remember when David Beckham was unfaithful to Posh.
While Victoria Beckham forgave her husband, Eva Longoria and Cheryl Cole decided to end it. Eva is even seeking spousal support, which I find very advisable after what her husband has put her through.

She forgave him: David and Posh
 Actually, I do not think that this is enough: Women who have been cheated on should get everything they demand from their husbands; that's the least the cheating bastards can do for them, even though money will never make up for all the pain these men have caused their wives.

This leads me to my main question: Why do men cheat?
Men always find excuses, most of them are totally lame. But in the cases of the mentioned women (namely Eva, Cheryl and Posh), there is no excuse. These women are all beautiful and successful. Obviously, it has nothing to do with looks or fame. If men are not happy in a relationship, why don't they just say it? If they want to have reams of meaningless sex, why do they marry or start a relationship in the first place? I guess there is no real answer to this question. Maybe they're all just dumb horndogs. I don't know. It's just sad.

Forget Demi, take me!

Ashton Kutcher, I heart you!
Not only do you have the perfect haircut, a hot body, a beautiful face and a lovely smile. You also have that certain boyish charme that makes me all dizzy!


The only thing that kinda bugs me is your wife Demi Moore. When I see you two, I wonder WHY and HOW?!

And by the way, those outfits are wrong in so many ways...

Make-up - It's not that difficult

Often I hear friends complain about how stressed they are and that they do "not have the time to put on make-up in the morning." That is just a lame excuse. If anyone likes sleeping in the morning, it would be me. And I still find time for putting on make-up; it really doesn't take long.
Other times, I see girls walking around like they're working as a clown in a circus - that's not what make-up is for, unless you really are working as a clown.
So, that is why I have decided to make a post about a simple day make-up. It's easy and it does not take a lot of time.

1) Powder Brush - I use it four rouge, 2) Powder brush for my bronzing powder, 3) Bronzing Powder (by Maybelline), 4) Powder Roughe (by Manhattan, color: peach), 5) Foundation (Matte Mousse by Maybelline), 6) Concealer (by Essence), 7) Eyeliner (khol by ESPRIT), 8) Mascara ( XXL pro Extensions byMaybelline).

You don't necessarily need the same brands, just use the ones that you prefer and that work best for you.
So here comes a short instruction:
1. Clean your face, put on a facial creme as a basis.
2. If your skin is unclear, use a foundation (5); make sure the foundation fits to your skin tone. It's always better to use a foundation that is slightly lighter than your skin tone.
3. Draw a line with your eyeliner (7) over your upper eyelid. This is not very easy and takes some practice to get  a straight line if you're not used to doing it. If you have more time, put on some mascara (8). Otherwise, just leave it out.
4. If you want to, you can use a concealer (6)  to cover the shadows under your eyes.
5. Use your powder brush to put on some bronzing powder. Start from your cheeks and then work your way through your face. Make sure it's not too much powder on your brush, otherwise you will look like you did some experiments with self-tanning lotion.
6. Use your other powder brush to put on a little rouge. Do not exaggerate, only use it on your cheeks. Again, make sure the color fits to your skin tone; the color peach fits to many skin tones and thus usually looks natural on almost everyone.

Voilà, you're done and can start the day looking super fresh, even if you're unbelievably tired.
If you want to, you can still accent your eyes and/or your lips a bit more.

For a smokey-eye make-up, you could use a dark eye shadow (3, L'ORÉAL). If you like it simple, you can use apricot or brown eye shdows (1 Maybelline, 2 Manhattan). Or you can match your eye shadow with your clothes (e.g. 4, Maybelline).

For your lips, you can use ligloss or lipstick in colors you like, but make sure they match with the rest of the make-up (p.s. no blue eye shadow with red lipstick, that just looks horrible!).
Have fun! :)

Shopping cures depression.

Whenever I get stressed or I feel that something is becoming more demanding than I can handle, I find myself shopping like there will be no tomorrow. It helps me calm down, and I feel happy when I have shiny new things. :D
Some of my newest 'conquests' are

my new shoes

and a fabulous new bag.

The bag reminded me of Mulberry's Alexa (named after Alexa Chung), which I find très chic and always wanted (but cannot afford at the moment haha):
Can't wait for my next shopping trip! ;)
