Army Inspired ♥

Hey lovelies!

How are you today? ♥

I have enjoyed a day off from school today, even though I had an online exam to take. But seriously, an exam you can take home doesn't really feel like one. I was also supposed to go to our class' pre-Christmas party, but after going to the nurse and taking my final Twinrix shot, I have been too tired to really go anywhere. But I've been trying to give new life and speed to my old laptop so that I could maybe work with it before getting a new one.

Today, however, I'm going to share this quick outfit post with you. This is something I wore to school last week so finally I have something to post that isn't super old, haha.

Sweater: secondhand
Camo pants: secondhand
Combat boots: Skobox
Necklaces: Gina Tricot, my fiance's box

So again, a very basic look and all, but I just felt like wearing camo pants and then decided to go all army that day. Not sure if anyone else noticed than my man back home, but I really liked this myself. The light is again what it is, but seriously I rather even take a not so nice picture than let the blog go without any outfits. I'm trying to take some nice ones this weekend when we have the time while it's not dark outside. I promise you!

But what do you think about this look? Let me know in the comments below!

Now, I'm gonna prepare tomorrow's post a bit (I'm kinda excited about it), do my nails and have some time alone with my man. But I'll talk to you again tomorrow!

Have a fantastic day, and Happy Thanksgiving to all my american friends out there ♥

Denim Shirt ♥

Hey you guys!

How are you lovelies today? ♥

I'm personally feeling pretty awesome, as the single most biggest thing for school this week is over and done with (which is the research interviews I was talking about in the previous post), and even though we still have a presentation and an exam to go, I feel already relieved with the week. I don't know how to describe the feeling, I just feel like I can take on the world and all the challenges right now. And that's pretty cool.

Today I wanna share a couple of photos from little over a week ago, when we went to a shopping trip with my man. I didn't really get much as I'm on a budget, but it was fun to check out the stores and see what I could get once the Christmas sales start.

We ate on Sticky Wingers, which is a fun little restaurant located in the restaurant world of the Ideapark mall. Sticky Wingers works together with another restaurant called Coyote, and no matter which one you eat in, you can order on both menus. We decided to get burgers from Coyote's menu.

Notice the phone addict having the pink thing on the table all the time... Bad me. But, in my defense, I let it go once the food came and I had taken a picture of that.

I opted for a gluten free chicken ranch burger, which was super delicious! If you, like me, are a coeliac, you can eat in Coyote without worries. They can make all their burgers and most of their other dishes with gluten free ingredients, and they taste just as good as the "regular" food. After eating, we went around the shops trying to find some little things for both of us.

And lastly, my outfit of the day. I'm not 120% happy with the lighting here, but I managed to make to colors at least somewhat decent so these shall do.

Jeans: secondhand
Tee: Cubus
Denim Shirt: Lee Cooper 
Necklace: Boohoo
Combat boots: Skobox
Earring: Gina Tricot

I really loved this look a lot, and I can honestly say I wore this at least three times in a short while. The denim shirt is something I had accidentally left in our old apartment's storage, but the new people there were kind enough to let us know it's there. And I have loved wearing it since. And the shoes are something I can't get enough of, as I've been looking for a nice pair of combat boots for a while now, and when I saw these, I simply had to have them. They're perfect. This whole look was very basic as it is, so I just threw in a statement necklace to give that little something to it.

What do you all think about the look here? Let me know in the comments!

Now, I will go to relax a bit and then prep myself a bit for the school day tomorrow. I think I need to go through our presentation material, as well as to read another group's work so that I can ask questions about it. But that's not a bad homework at all, don't you think? I'll talk to you again tomorrow or on Thursday, depending on how much stuff will come on my way. But stay tuned on my social media platforms as I update them a bit more frequently than the blog here. ;)

Have a fantastic day ♥

Gold Details vs Kitties ♥

Hello my darlings!

How was your weekend? ♥

I was actually planning to blog yesterday, but life had other plans and my anxious little head decided to throw a 12-hour long panic attack on me. Yeah, I have tendency to anxiety when I get super stressed. Not necessarily a big deal but not too comfortable either. But luckily we had fun night with the boys so that made me feel loads better. Also, I filmed a nail art video - though only after editing I can tell if that is any useful to anyone, other than for me as I learn how to edit.

Tomorrow, I need to step outside my comfort zone and get to interviewing random people in the city. That's for a school project as we have to do a research for a company to pass a class. All fun, except for the interviewing. Not that I don't like people, but I get easily socially anxious. Even though I usually don't show it and never really talk about it with people. But hey, I told you now, so, friends?

Anyway, for today, I planned I'd share these nail art designs with you. And this also serves for practice on how to use a Flickr account. I'm figuring I should try to use that too, as so many bloggers seem to get better quality out of that than they do with Photobucket. I will go on and see about that. But let's get to the pics!

So the first manicure today is this dark red (it looks black, but let me assure you, it's red) base with pretty gold details. I did this solely to try out the leaf gold flakes, but it came out kind good!

The only polish shade I used is China Glaze Crimson, which just might be my favorite autumn shade for nails. The striping tape, rhinestones and the leaf gold are from Born Pretty Store.

I really, really loved wearing this mani, although the tape starting coming off the next day. I'm so bad with it. But hey, something I can learn to be better at.

The second one is not as autumny, but at least as cute one.

This one is a combination of pastel blue, glitter sandwich and cute decals. This was my first time using decals, and I can definitely recommend them to anyone who struggles with painting pictures on nails, but would still want to have more than plain colors or like stripes or something. They are so easy to use, and they stay on perfectly, at least once you add a top coat.

These decals are from Born Pretty Store, and the polishes I used are China Glaze At Vase Value and It's A Trap-Eze! Both of the polishes have been used in so many of my manis, and will probably be seen many times more. Hope you guys still love them as well.

I absolutely loved this kitty mani, I have even read the manga where the cat, Chi, is from. And if you haven't seen it, you should. It's adorable! And if you check it out, you will totally understand why I had to have these - if you don't get it already.

DSC03148 (Large)

That's everything I have for you today. I hope you enjoyed this somewhat quick post, and yet again, sorry for giving the silent treatment over the weekend. But I had such a great time with my boys that I wouldn't have exchanged it to time alone on the laptop, which I know you understand.

Still, I wanna know what you think about this post, so let me know in the comments! ♥

Like I mentioned, tomorrow I will be somewhat stuck with my school stuff, but I will try to get something written on Tuesday the latest (we have interviews then as well, but I'm sure we will get things done in timely fashion). I'm so bummed we don't have the proper time to photograph when there's daylight, but I try to make the most of it on weekends and so on. But don't hate me if I don't get too many outfits up, or at least ones with nice outside background. I try to compensate with lifestyle posts though!

But now, I must stop blogging and start getting ready to bed. Talk to you soon though!

Have a lovely start for your week ♥
