5 colours on my nails

new gift from Sephora, so I made my first galaxy-manicure! with 5 steps and I'm so happy with the result :)

"Lately, I've been, I've been losing sleep
Dreaming about the things that we could be
But baby, I've been, I've been praying hard,
Said no more counting dollars
We'll be counting stars, yeah we'll be counting stars.."  > One Republic

1) 'New year's resolution'
2) 'Happy hour!'
3) 'Spread the world'
4) 'Sugar coated'
5) 'Party animal'

bang bang bangs!

A german song says : "a new haircut for a new life"...I don't know if it's true, but I really like my new face with bangs!
I was a bit worried before cutting it, looking at pictures of celebs to try to figure out, but now, I'm so pleased with it!

some of my favourite bangs (found on Pinterest)

cold is coming...

but I love that dull, red-coloured, cold days of November...

"I went back, I went back to your love
And I felt so many wrongs
That I wasted on you by the crowd
And I called, you called me
And I whispered your name
I went home, we stared blank
To the pages I loved

Well, I just wanna compliment your soul
I just wanna compliment your soul
Yeah, I just wanna compliment..."

November DIY #2

 I found inspiration here, but made my rings with some nail polishes (so, now I've already 3 different colours as you can see..., but I want to make lots of new ones!)

"Call it what you want
I said just call it what you want
Yeah we're locked up in ideas
We like to label everything
Well I'm just gonna do here what I gotta do here

DIY November #1

No more identical tights in your warderobe!
I found the idea here :)

"Nooo you don’t even know what you want,
 know what you got, noooo
I don’t even think that I want what’s left of your heart
I used to think that I can make you happy then you go and throw it right back at me
Noooo you don’t even know what you want,
know what you got..."                          > James Blunt

* nail polish = Pupa / tights = ?? / skirt = LaRedoute /shoes = Zara

completely Chung ❤

She's one of my ultimate-crush; I love her style, her hair (her ex-boyfriend...), her smile and most of her outfits...
She inspired me everyday when I'm in front of my warderobe! She made me like flat shoes and as her, I appreciate slim pants, babydoll dresses and put my shirt in my pants or skirt too.

So, happy 30th birthday, Alexa!

Picture from her book :)

fashion fall

This is my selection of items-I-like during fashion weeks...

 “When you’re happy from a dream
Is it hard to work out what’s real
Is the real over there
More vivid than here ever feels
We could love, we could love you
If you need somebody to love you
While you’re looking for somebody to love
Sweet love illumination
Sweet, sweet love elevation
Outside, fresh other side
But inside love, you will be alright
Sweet love illumination
Sweet, sweet love celebration…”    > Franz Ferdinand

flowers for a stranger

This end of summer was busy - that's why I only write now!
Autumn comes and colours don't fade...but with intricate floral patterns I combine some simple monochrome white nails.

I had to cut my nails short, but this manicure makes them look longer! ;)

"Wow look at you now
Flowers in the window
It's such a lovely day
And I'm glad you feel the same
Cause to stand up, out in the crowd
You are one in a million
And I love you so
Lets watch the flowers grow..."    > Travis

Alex + Alex (music review)

Twitter, Pinterest

1. Alex (Kapranos) = Franz Ferdinand

FOUR YEARS after Tonight (which unfortunately hadn't much success...even if I really really like their funny lyrics ('Twilight Omens', 'Ulysses', 'No you girls',...)), here are 10 new songs!
Okay, I don't (already) understand everything they say ("We're fresh strawberries..."*/"Car keys choose your keys..."**), but their music still sounds as FF but with some very nice improvements (choir, rythme, trumpets or hypnotic chorus).
And Alex's voice is great, excited and sexy with his improbable tones. This is a great album to dance, jump, run or to make some exercice :)
So, yes, I love this album and it could become my favourite one!

2. Alex (Turner) = Arctic Monkeys

Okay, I already wrote about this album (here), but I was OBLIGED to make a review. Why? It is awesome! Okay, Alex's voice is soooooooo sexy, but music is amazing (bass on 'Knee socks' or 'I want it all', guitar on 'Do I wanna know?' or drums on 'Snap out of it'), more mature and lyrics are still good ("Secrets that I have held in my heart are harder to hide that I thought..."*** / "I can't explain but I want to try, There's this image of you and I..."****)
One negative point? I worried they'll become too American...because, yes, we feel this sunny hip-hop californian influence on their work. Not bad. Yet.
Love it, but should be my 2nd favourite of their albums ; 1st = Worst Favourite Nightmare...

"I'll meet you coming backwards
I'll meet you coming back
When the universe has expanded
Time will contract
You'll come back..."  
> Franz Ferdinand

"And her lips are like the galaxy's edge
And a kiss the colour of a constelation
falling into place..."

> Arctic Monkeys


* 'Fresh Strawberries'
** 'Brief Encounters'
*** 'I wanna be yours'
**** 'Fireside'

'back to studies' outfit

Black & White & Khaki  = end of summer outfit (and end of summer means that school year is beginning...even  if I only begin in two weeks haha)

"Darlin’ I don’t want to let you down
 But I can’t get the game with your rules
 Deep down I know I would mess it up
 Spend the rest of my days with those blues.
 Darlin’ I know you want it as much
 As much as I want it to
 Darlin’ I know for sure
 Pick up the pieces..."      >  Tahiti 80

I discovered a new band : Alt-J (which means delta and is also seen as : )
It gave me the idea to make some triangles on my nails while listening to their gorgeous songs...

"Triangles are my favorite shape
Three points where two lines meet
Toe to toe, back to back, let's go, my love; it's very late
'Til morning comes, let's tessellate...."                                  > Alt-J

summer vibrations

"There's no one in town I know
You gave us some place to go.
I never said thank you for that.
I thought I might get one more chance.
What would you think of me now,
so lucky, so strong, so proud?
I never said thank you for that,
now I'll never have a chance.
May angels lead you in.
Hear you me my friends..."    > Jimmy Eat World

summer outfit

= heat + sun + vacation

"The finest clothes
that you can find
dressed in my coat I'm feeling fine
I wanna shine
I'll shine so hard
I'll stand apart
these foolish ways
I know my place
my time is now
altough we're tongue tied
and breathless
we won' let out worries
dictate who we are
so let's throw out the old doubt
we won't let our worries
dictate who we are
don't forget who you are..."    > Miles Kane*

*his new album is great! :)

How to spend great summer days :

+  Franz Ferdinand's new songs ( I was waiting for this new album for 3 years and it will be released August 26th!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!)


“I wrote your name
Upon the back of my hand
Slept upon it then I woke up
With it backwards on my face
Reading forwards
From my mirror to my heart…”   > Franz Ferdinand
