Aaaah, the 70s – I’ve actually never been a great fan of the typical style of the 70s, but since last summer, I’ve started to like a few pieces that fit perfectly into this decade. It’s fun to style yourself in different ways and give everything a chance instead of always saying “no” when it’s not your usual style. So here I am, wearing → this dress from the current Anna Scholz for sheego collection, the second piece of my editorial “trilogy”, and it’s the dress that was most difficult for me to style – just because I’m not used to the cutouts, the paisley print and that whole 70s flair. But (and that’s a huge one): I really love it! I kind of feel like a modern hippie diva and adding my own accessories to the dress was lots of fun. :)

You all know me, I’m always up for a chic look, so after → last time, when I showed you how casual I can be, here’s an elegant version with another lovely dress that’s just perfect for summer. I had to take it one size up for a nicer fit, so I’m wearing a EU46, which I made a bit more formfitted with a small belt that works perfectly with my platform heels. ;) I actually wanted to wear a cognac-colored hat, but unfortunately I don’t own one, so I had to go for black, but I think it’s actually a nice contrast, especially because it’s a straw hat, which makes it not too heavy as the only black piece in this look.

Do you remember this skirt? → Last time, I wore it as a top with jeans. ;)
This time, I’m wearing it with a nude body and some funny accessories: a dotted scarf instead of adding more stripes, and a gray hat with a fuzzy detail instead of a plain black one (which also looks great with this look, but I wanted something special).

I think we’re not completely ready to say that spring is on its way (it even snowed in my hometown a few days ago and also a little bit here in Hamburg), but I’m happy to see that at least the days are getting longer, there’s also a bit of sunshine from time to time and maybe you could also say that it’s a little bit warmer. So here I am, starting to show you some inspiration for spring looks. Because I really believe that we all don’t want to see this cold anymore! :)

Exploring new little beaches in Hamburg is a lot of fun – especially when you have to climb over a fence (oops!) and down many rocks (wearing flip flops). But sometimes it’s worth it and you’ll find a tiny beach just for you – with nobody disturbing your shooting just before sunset. And only a few minutes before this beach got flooded pretty quickly. You can probably imagine how quickly we climbed back up all the rocks in order to stay dry. ;)

Funny story behind this look: my top is actually a beach towel from when I was little. When we last visited my parents, I had a look at the stuff I had left there and found it – the tie-dye print is way too beautiful (just as the memories!) to leave it unworn and so I came up with the idea to wear it as a crop top, wrapping it around my bust and neck and tadaaa: fits again! ;)
I also wanted to wear a turban again and found another piece I had already forgotten. Isn’t this scarf a perfect match to the top? And to round up that blue look, I put on my blue sunnies and some tiny turquoise earrings. Good to go! Even though I would have worn some sneakers instead of flip flops if I’d known that I’d go climbing. ;) Still there’s nothing better than walking barefoot in the sand and just staying there with your feet in the water, sinking in a little more, wave by wave…

Okay, so step by step I want to bring back the beauty topics – they’re still very important to me, but somehow I just haven’t wanted to write so much about them for a long time. One reason probably was the feedback (even before the comments were disabled) – I spent a lot of time writing my reviews and nothing came back (I wasn’t sure if you really liked the posts or if you were interested in them at all). Also, of course it’s nice to get all those free PR samples and try new things constantly (and I’m absolutely thankful for these possibilities!), but that’s all – the work (and believe me – you can ask any good beauty blogger – it’s not only about receiving something for free, trying it once and writing how cool the product is!) is never paid. Don’t get me wrong, my blog is something I do with pleasure and I love it, it’s my passion, but it is also a business for me, so: doing it all for free is not an option, as I really try to do it for a living. This, by the way, is one of the reasons why I only write about things that I really love and can clearly recommend to you (even though there’s always a chance that someone doesn’t like the products as much as I do!). I don’t want to spend my time writing about how bad something is, that’s why I pick out my favorites, things that really satisfy my beauty needs and that convince me of their quality.

But I heard you: almost everybody wants the beauty section back and I don’t want to let you wait for it forever. So here is a first try of a comeback: my five favorite foundations (at the moment, but they have been for quite some time!) – plus: a newcomer and my all-time favorite, which I actually shouldn’t show as the color isn’t available anymore (but that doesn’t mean that the foundation isn’t great for you in your own color!). This is not supposed to be a review, so don’t expect detailed information on these products but my opinion (which might be a little affected by my love for them!) about them. ;)
