the rooftop wraps around because the sky is just the ground

the rooftop wraps around because the sky is just the ground outfit post title

Ello folks,

how are you? Did you have a nice weekend?
Remember when I was complaining about life getting in the way of my plans in the last post? Well, this time it got in the way big time! Right after posting my last post on Wednesday I headed for my weekly martial arts class - and came back hobbling.
I lost balance when we practiced punch defence, twisted my ankle and fell, then hobbled home. The next day I couldn't walk at all, so I hobbled to the hospital and they found out the right foot is broken.
I never had a broken bone in my life before, so I didn't know how annoying such a cast and crutches are - but damn do these things suck! I'm so looking forward to getting a splint instead next Thursday.
So since Thursday I've been staying at home in my pyjamas, putting my foot up and sipping on chai latte. I've been really lazy (the doc said I shouldn't move unless it's really necessary) and I'm very lucky that Jay is here to help me with all the little daily life things that are so much harder when you can't walk.
Have you ever tried to carry a mug of chai latte from the kitchen to the bedroom jumping? Fun fun fun! Especially when you spill half of it along the way...
The good thing about a broken foot is that you have lots of time to do stuff like editing photos, blogging and browsing. I don't really feel like taking outfit pictures at the moment, but luckily I still had these photos from Wednesday up my sleeve.
When I have to read for my bachelor thesis I like to do it on a cozy little coffee break because my concentration works much better with everyday life sounds around. So Jay and I went to one of my favourite cafés around the corner and treated ourselves with Latte and cake.
I swear I will be so fat when I finish my thesis! We do that all of the time when I have to read. I love our little coffee shop outings, but I already know I'll have to work out more again after he has left for Australia.
But oh well, until then we enjoy our time, so some extra cake is alright I guess.
Nooo I'm totally not trying to sugarcoat the situation here.....not at all! ;)
The outfit is cute and comfy, exactly what I need for these little reading sessions. It includes one of my favourite big cozy cardigans that I got from the Urban Outfitters sale last year. There's just the right amount of wool in it to make it comfy and warm without making my poor sensitive skin feel itchy.
Also these are my new favourite shoes! I bought them on a little trip to Venlo (Netherlands) on New Year's Eve and have been living in them since then. Awesome bargain as they were only 30 €, yippie!
Like them?
See, that's the cake. Who could resist, hm?! Please make me feel good and say "No one!" at this point now. ;)

Have a lovely Sunday everyone!

a little piece of cheese cake

a little piece of cheese cake outfit post title
Hello lovelies!

Well, actually I wanted to post these photos yesterday but my monthly allergy injections knocked me down a bit too much, so I spent the evening in a sort of zombie mode in bed instead.
I hate it when I plan to do certain things on certain days and then life gets in the way, argh.
Anyway, these pics are from Sunday when my mum came to visit us. Jarryd and I took her to one of our favourite coffee shops to show her the yummy drinks and cakes there and we spent quite some time just hanging out and chatting.

It is not really winter here this year, that's why I was able to wear two pairs of light tights and the skirt without freezing my private parts off. I'm actually pretty disappointed because I was hoping for snow and cold, but oh well it seems the climate changes more and more each year, so that twenty years from now we'll probably be able to run around in bikinis in January.
Anyway, as for the outfit: it involves one of my favourite shirts ever and my new tote bag which was a Christmas gift from my friend Kate (thanks again dear!). It's black and white and there's an owl on it - could it be any better? No! :)

I'm off to my Wing Tsun training now.
Hope everyone is having a lovely day! :)

Hi guys!

How are you?
In the chaos of writing the bachelor thesis, spending time with my boyfriend before he leaves Germany, working at my job and trying to figure out what to do after graduating I finally found time to blog again.
This year will be a whirlwind, I already know it!
I have to apply for jobs or internships very soon and in a few months from now I will have to start preparing everything for my year abroad, that means loooots of paperwork for visa, my apartment, insurances etc.
Can you tell that I'm already overwhelmed by only thinking about it? This will be so much to do at once, phew...
Anyway, for now my first priority is Henri Bergson's essay on laughter for my thesis. He fries my brain regurlarly at the moment.
These photos have been on my computer for quite some time, since shortly before Christmas I think. I'm glad I can finally post them to show you my new headband. If you follow my Bad Taste Toast Facebook page you already know it, but for the rest: tapadaaaa this is my new Topshop headband.
I've never really worn headbands because they were not flattering on me before I got my fringe. And since I got my fringe I somwhow forgot that a different hair style might enable me to wear different hair accessories. Good thing this pretty little thing reminded me of it when I saw it in the store.
I adore the colours and that it's braided and that it's cozy and that its braided and and and... and that it's braided!! 
What do you think? Likey?
Now my dear readers I have to leave my desk and go to the kitchen. One of the many things I enjoy at the moment is when J and I cook together. We've tried out some awesome recipes in the last weeks, today it's time for spicy chicken curry, yummmmmm. For my German readers I can really recommend the website Eat Smarter with all its healthy and delicious ideas. Low carb, low fat, vegetarian, there's a recipe for everything there. Maybe you'll spend your night cooking too now? If you try out a recipe let me know! :)

Have a lovely evening!

medienhafen outfit post title
Hi guys!

How are you? I hope everyone had an amazing New Year's Eve?!
Again happy new year to all of you!
I had a fun night at a friend's party with Jarryd and some other people. My friend Penny's apartment is by the Rhine so we were able to watch fireworks from there without trees or anything else in the way, it was awesome.
These photos are from last week when I had some time off to spend on having coffee dates and walks around the city with Jarryd. We first went to our favourite coffee shop Kaffeepiraten, then grabbed another coffee to go and took a little walk around the Medienhafen here in Düsseldorf.
I like it there, it's a really cool place to take photos. Has one of you maybe been there yet? :)
How do you like my new coat? It's on sale for 15 € at H&M at the moment. I fell in love with the abstract leopard print and the comfy fit of the egg-shape cut on the spot, so I really had to take it home with me.

Wishing you a nice weekend lovelies!
