FASHION | how to style looks from the Oscars

Hey guys,

I am not going to show you my favourite looks from the Oscars or the "best dressed" or whatsoever, because a) you can have that everywhere on the Internet and b) it's a matter of taste and tastes differ. ;)
So, instead, I am going to show you how to style some looks from the Oscars red carpet!

To be honest, I didn't even watch it on TV. There are times when you have to set priorities and mine was sleep, actually. ;-) And to be honest once more, I'm a lot more interested in the fashion than the movies... What about you?
Also, according to Fashionista, chain choker necklaces have to be the next menswear trend (here). I totally agree. 

Tell me your opinion about the Oscars and the fashion in the comments below!

FASHION | outfit: the velvet dress

Hello :)

Today's outfit features one of my favorite dresses at the moment: a black velvet dress I bought at a thrift store.
To add some color, I paired it with blue tights. I totally love this outfit because it's super comfortable (I mean, I'm wearing combat boots!) and people still tell me I look "dressed up". I count that as effortlessly looking elegant haha. :)

Also, these pictures (credits to my aunt, thank you!) were taken on the day of the photo shoot, which is why my hair and make up look so nice.

What do you think? Do you have a favorite comfy-yet-stylish outfit? Tell me in the comments!
Hope you're having a fantastic weekend!

DIY | worry less love more

Hello lovelies,

I hope that everything I write now is still making sense. I've been writing a school paper for almost all day and now words and sentences look weird haha.
I REALLY want to show you this easy and pretty DIY, though! I saw this picture a few days ago in this post on andysparkles and that inspired me to do something similar for my wall. I still had that very beautiful picture frame hanging empty on my wall, so I instantly knew what I'd do with that. :)

So here's what you're gonna need:
a picture frame, paper, scissors, a pencil, a pen, a ruler, an eraser and some glittery nail polish (yes!)

I first cut out a piece of paper that would fit in my frame. Then I used a pencil to draw the words "worry less love more" on it. Then I colored the letters with a pen that matches the frame's color (my favorite atm, I guess...). In the end, I added some special touch to the whole thing by painting two words with nail polish ("mr. and mrs. glitter" by essence). And what can I say, while I was at it, I painted my toe nails too. They just looked so bare and, let's be honest, a little glitter never killed nobody. ;)
(I guess my next artwork should be something like "worry less paint your toe nails more" hihi)
After letting the picture dry, I put it in the frame and hung it on my wall. That's it!

What do you think? Also, what's your favorite nail polish to wear on your toe nails? Let me know in the comments below!
