if you like it then you shoulda put a ring on it

in about 10 hours i will be setting off to frankfurt airport and collect my boyfriend, for the last time. i'm really happy and a tiny bit giddy but not nervous or bouncy. i haven't quite realised that this such a completely new level and i feel a bit sad actually. i really couldn't find words to explain because yes i'm happy i get to live permanently with the one i love, but i will dearly miss the soothing candysweet laziness i can indulge in when i'm home alone. staying up until 4 in the morning if i wanna because i caught a nice film on telly, or if i do not want but have to because i am finishing a course paper that was due a week before. it's all going to be so so different and although i'm sure i am absolutely going to love it, tonight is a bit meh. some of my mates aren't too well either and i wish they were all happy and rosy-cheeked. and i miss others who are abroad.
frankly, i just really cannot contain most of the things happening in my life at the moment. some stuff is whizzing by and some is sticking like glue and i sometimes can't handle either.
weepy weepy weepy weepy weepy.
ok so we got that down, now here come the outfits.
monday.

and the gay guy in me really loves beyoncé's new song, but even more so the video. it's a fantastic choreography and overall look, you really can't imagine how amazing i find this. beyoncé is a bit ridiculous as a person but she totally is an a+ entertainer. and the video displays also that she has a beautiful body, i really think she does.

so bear with me, again, until the next post. i will probably be busy hugging my baby for a while.

eh, les francaises, dites-moi, ca va, les traductions? je suis pas en forme de traduire ce texte maintenant mais je vais le faire. ti résumé: mon mec arrive demain et il va rester pour toujours cette fois-ci. j'en suis super contente bien sur mais je suis un peu nostalgique car ma vie jusqu'ici va me manquer. je me suis adaptée bien à être seule longtemps. mais booon ca va. j'adorerais l'avenir!

oh!

les plus belles années d'une vie sont celles que l'on a pas encore vécues.

the best is yet to come.

just in case you, or i, forgot.

bonjour mon petit bureau de change

Photobucket
i'm having a very french time at the moment really, i mean all the translating in here and then also, i have a new pupil. he's taught french by me as well. and i am reading and jotting down all these things about the french chanson of the 70s, i so have a paper due on monday.
i did find the time to read some mags though, such as the german jolie i bought the other day (simply because i had to make the purchase of a fat latin dictionary a little less boring, and a free lipliner/lipgloss combo came with it for freeee!) and red magazine that my mum bought in dublin. and in either one of these, i read an article about the supertrendy birds nest hairdo, sported on many runways recently. i had to try it out and, apart from feeling like a fat russian ballerina, it just looks like a normal bun to me, just a little higher up than usual. it's a good look though! as are the following outfits, from thursday and today.

je suis en train de passer un temps très francais en ce moment-là. toutes les traductions ici mais aussi, j'ai un nouveau élève. je lui enseigne le francais. puis je lis et je notes toutes ces choses sur la chanson francaise des années 70. il me faut absolument finir ce mini-mémoire avant le lundi.
pourtant, j'ai trouvé le temps de lire des magazines, jolie, une mag allemande, que j'avais achetée l'autre jour (simplement parce que je voulais faire le mieux de l'achat d'une grosse dictionnaire latin, et aussi, il y en avait une combinaison lipliner/lipgloss, toute gratuite!) et la magazine red que ma mère m'a achetée à dublin. dans une de celles-là, je lisais un article sur cette coiffure 'birds nest' super trendy, que l'on porte sur tous les défilés. il m'a fallu essayer et, sauf que je me sens comme une grosse ballérine russe avec, ca a l'air d'un chignon normal, selon moi. juste un peu plus haut que normal. mais c'est joli quoi! joli comme les tenues du jeudi et d'aujourd'hui.

my mummy went to dublin and all i got was...

not much to say cos i have loads to do, though i always find the time to take a quickie pic of my outfit fitness.
oh i've posted the first pic because i have been using this lip tint thing which is totally gorgeous and i got it for free at the arndale in manchester in the summer, candysweetness!

ma mère est allé à dublin et tout ce qu'elle m'a acheté est ce manteau pas du tout minable! et des gants géniaux! merci mama! il a un détail tout joli, un noeud géant. il me va comme un gant (haha), et, le meilleur, il était juste 9 euros.
je n'ai plus rien à dire car il y a tant de choses à faire mais je trouve toujours le temps pour prendre une photo des mes tenues toutes jolieeees.

oh j'ai posté la première photo parce que j'ai utilisé ce truc qui s'appelle lip tint et c'est formidable et je l'ai recu gratuitement au centre arndale à manchester cet été. candysweetness!

leave those poor sick monkeys alone, they've got problems enough as it is

Photobucket
i know it's such a cliché but the first week in uni is so two-faced really. it's nice seeing people again, meeting new ones, and just spend the time until your next class chatting away to new and old ones alike. but then again, for somebody so much into procrastination as myself, it's the most stressful week ever. so much stuff to do that should have been done ages ago, plus all the new tasks. and then there IS the catching up talks still. and it doesn't help that latin is a c*nt. probably failed today's exam.
what would i do if i didn't have fashion as a means to express my usually happy self. cheeeeeeese.

je sais que c'est un tel cliché que la première semaine du semsestre est vraiment très bizarre. c'est super de rencontrer ses amis ou bien faire la connaissance de nouveaux people, et de simplement passer le temps bavarder avec eux jusqu'au début du prochain cours. mais toutefois, pour quelqu'un aussi parresseuse que moi, c'est la semaine la plus stressante. tant de choses à faire qui auraient être finies il y a longtemps, et de nouveaux devoirs en plus. et puis, il y a vraiment les conversations de rattrapage, non. et ca ne m'aide nulle part que le latin est un c*nnard. j'ai raté l'examen d'aujourd'hui probablement.
alors quoi faire si je n'avais pas le moyen de mode pour m'exprimer, moi, qui est toute heureuse normalement. c'est taaaaarte.

that's all for now and you don't have to pity the fool, just enjoy the blog. and the following song, because it's great and sung by the funniest 2 guys on the planet, well, besides my baby.

c'est tout pour le moment et il ne vous faut pas me plaindre là. appréciez le blog. autant que la prochaine chanson, parce que c'est chouette et chantée par les 2 mecs les plus marrants du monde, bon, aussi marrant que mon chichou.

ps: i have a massive bum chin on these pics. it's the lighting! i'm not so elvis.
bum chin je ne sais pas en francais. tenez le menton, c'est un peu elvis. à cause de la lumière!

truc de ouf... ou pas

comme il y a pas mal de lectrices francaises (ou bien de lecteurs, que sais-je), je me suis demandée s'il me faudrait écrire mes postings en francais aussi? bon c'est tout à fait possible mais... mais rien. vous me ditiez s'il y a des erreurs de grammaire etc. non? je me sens beaucoup plus sûr en anglais. faut accuser la mondialisation! hah!
puis que vous êtes 2nd dans la table des drapeaux, vous y avez le droit de décider!

the new semester starts tomorrow. wish me a nice day. and oh it's gonna be a stressful week. but it's all good and candysweet and i'm looking forward to meeting more of you guys from all over the planet. and let me say it were great if i spoke all your languages cos i'd love to read all of your blogs.
i want to star in a video and do exactly what leslie feist does. look cool, dance cool. one day! for now, i'll just sing along.
gute nacht!

oh to keep her caged would just delay the spring

Photobucket
my muse has left me. i have been getting on semi-well with my paper during the last few days, but today, today is one of those days when you confront yourself with a pile of books, or any other task, and can't help but getting off your chair a million times, because you feel you should be doing something else. in my case, i felt like tidying up my desk, which was a great idea. and sorting out old newspapers and mags for the bin. oh the laziness. the blessed damozel i am not.

yesterday, i went to collect my little ebay treasures from a dollhouse shop. no it is not a tiny doll-size shop, it is a real full-size shop selling dollhouse items. such a lovely thing to walk into, i'm telling you. so many eenie weenie cute things placed orderly on lovely ikea billy shelves. the shop lady was really friendly as well and, naturally, asked me if i had a dollhouse. i said no, but hopefully as soon as i have a daughter. she's gonna get a flipping dollhouse whether she wants it or not! just so i can buy all these tiny little bits of furniture and doll leasure. i was honest and told the shop lady that i wanted the pieces i've bought for making jewellery. she said she has another customer who makes earrings out of tiny tools. cute!
i had also bought 2 dollhouse mugs from another lady that came with the mail yesterday. here's what's become of all my treasures. oh by the way, the birdcage necklace is very much an exact copy of the one you can buy from the french factory. i'm sorry i can't afford their stuff, although it's divine and very original. i'm an honest copier. i found out about their jewellery on alix's blog, of course.

so far, i have only got round about a quarter of what my seminar paper is supposed to be. please send me inspiration, but not for necklaces and dresses and necklace boards/ holders and customising gloves... dreamy. well as i say, the best is yet to come, eh?!

ps: the song above is one of the best travis have ever made. i'm always on the verge of crying when listening to it.

se lever aux aurores, automne comme été

Photobucket
(primark babydoll, ginatricot leg warmers, h+m wooly hat)
actually managed to spend almost 7 darn hours in the library today and it's no fun. not only is the place a total mess because mainz uni has been changing the whole library system around, no, it also took me up to half an hour today to find these flipping books. with pictures in them. i have to write a paper about The Blessed Damozel by Rossetti. i have a bit of a déjà-vu because last semester, i wrote a paper on french romanticism and emos. because the romantics were emo! and so were the pre-raphaelites. enough, that's not candysweet. well a little.
i had been all set and ready to show you France Gall's chanson indienne today but guess what, it's nowhere to be found for me to display here, so i settled for some baby pop, equally fineee. and anna wintour is such a copy cat, france looks cuter with that bob.

this is yesterday's look

and here is today's. and i look slightly poo in the last picture, the others are your usual superb quality, of course.
Photobucket

Photobucket
(h+m necklace, only you shoes, matalan belt, primark gilet)
by the way, i never wore those shoes today. it was hard not to fall on my nose with all the wet fallen leaves lying about anyway, so these would have been a total killer.


tomorrow, tomorrow, i love ya. no, tomorrow, it is only 2 more weeks to go until the end of almost 3 years of long distance relationship. the start of a new era, excitiingtingtingtingting.
my words of wisdom for today (because i have been so studious). well nah, this is my mantra, the wisest and best words ever. victor hugo:

les plus belles années d'une vie sont celles que l'on a pas encore vécues.
the best IS yet to come!

this is not a movie

Photobucket
and so there was no happy ending for boy kill boy. i read their bulletin on myspace yesterday, and for all of you who don't know: they have split up. sadness. they weren't big, in germany certainly not, but they sure were great. so in case you have missed out on them completely, here is their probably biggest hit, with an a1 video. aw aw aw :(.

the good news is, i've been awarded by emily-rose, very cute. made me well happy. here's my award:

Photobucket


tradition has it that i will pass this on to fellow bloggers, so here we go. note: i chose these because i think they deserve worldwide fame.

as well as katzekatha, dani and catrin, on a very personal level, i love your blogs, too. these beauties are my friends and you can view their blogs in the friendly linkage section.

of course, some f..er got my necklaces on ebay, OF COURSE. like in the last 0,2 seconds. what i bid on was an asos pink apple necklace, very very nice, and an asos strawberry necklace. since i'm a woman of little fortune, it came easy to me not to spend more than 7 euro on each. i mean, it's just a necklace. and i have the coolest necklace d.i.y. idea ever anyway and i'm gonna make millions of it and i don't need your overpriced necklaces thank you and i will just continue buying the stuff that i need for the d.i.y so nurrr!
here are yesterday's and today's fit fit outfits.

before i went into the world's most boringest place, the uni library, i went into town quick to do a little research on my d.i.y. and naturally ended up in h+m and got 2 pairs of gloves for ca. 4€! and a very very pretty bow necklace for 3 in the kids section. in honour of my membership in modepass' bowbow lovers group.
