The corner of your eyes, I long forevermore, I never want to say goodnight, miracle goodnight

Heyhey. Today was nice but also sucked. I meant to go to the cinema with some amazing friends and I forgot it! I am just so stupid...
Oh well. But George, my hamster from last post, is doing well and we bought a huge cage and he's running around and eating and is hella cute. And tomorrow will be awesome because my best buddy and I will have a sleepover and we'll make stickers. 
My outfit's pretty much way too cold for November, but hey, it's never too cold for Tulle. So, my Tulle Skirt is DIYed with this amazing tutorial from Marlena, and those Saddle Shoes, too. I am wearing Santa Claus socks 'cause they are cozy and Santa's real and cool. And. Please have a look at my tee. It's a vintage men tee from the Kennedy Space center and the print's breathtaking, in my opinion! And I felt like dancing ballett (I took classes for five years or more when I was a child... well, actually two years ago.) so I did something strange. I love ballett, and I would love to dance again, but sadly, there's no good school here (at least no one I know). Well.

And then I put some stickers all over my face because stickers are amazing. And I think this balloon belongs to my face. Maybe I will just leave it on till I die.

Limitless undying love, which shines around me like a million suns

Hey hey. Sorry for this lack of posting... (isn't it awful that I am apologizing for this everytime?!) So. This is a collage I made. It's actually about everything I love and could not live without. I think you know that I love those stuff if you are a follower, but here's why and what exactly.
I love....
the Outer Space. It's incredibly beautiful, and I mean, neverending. Neverending beauty. Full of plasmas, unknown planets and stars, it's the best thing on earth ever. All those secrets waiting there, every star (There are approximately 20000000000000000000000 stars! Get this! ) and all those alien dudes. There is nothing better than Outer Space. In my dreams, I open my window above my bed and all I see is the Outer Space.
For the crew of the USS Enterprise, this dream came true. It's beyond amazing what they are doing everyday: " Space: The final frontier. These are the voyages of the starship Enterprise. Its five-year-mission: to explore strange worlds, to seek out new life and new civilizations, to boldly go where no man has gone before. " My favorite character is Mr. Spock, from Vulcan. He was the first Vulcan to ever join the Starfleet, and he turned out as an amazing Captain and friend of James T. Kirk. Being super bright, he is also totally funny and ironic. Just have a look at his ears, isn't he adorable?
Done with Outer Space stuff in my universe, I think it's time for Rookie now. Rookie, as weird as it may sound, actually changed my life. I wouldn't be the same without this magazine. It definitely made me more self-confident and stronger, I learned to ignore haters and to do what I want without caring about the thoughts of others. This will never change again. Besides that, Rookie also influenced my style. I think it's so hard to define my style, and I actually don't want my style to be defined. . But "Rookie Style" is a definition I love and it means more to me than just clothing. I love the community of Rookies in the blogosphere.
The person who introduced me to Rookie was Tavi. I had been reading Tavi's blog a few times and when I saw that she published her own magazine, I was totally in awe. Tavi is also the person who introduced me to Blogging. She showed me so many things and stuff, I deeply admire her for what she is, what she achieved. And I admire her for being herself. She's truly one of the best teens ever. I never knew what to say when I was asked for my "role model", but since I am knowing Rookie and her, I know she's my role model. I also made a zine for her. Gosh please do not think I am a creepy stalker, I do not have thousands of pictures of her hanging around and I am not dreaming of her (yet... haha.).
I also love love love Blogging. It may sound obvious, but I truly do. It's so much fun sharing your thoughts with the world, and I love all my followers (hey you!) and I also made some amazing friends. I swapped zines with Carla from Redpunzel and I'll send Flower's Zine at thursday (I promise. Life's been so busy. School sucks.). I also sent a flower crown to Maddie. I've got to know the most awesome people since I am blogging, and some of my friends are stalking my blog and they admire what I am doing, and I love what I am doing. I cannot understand how people "hate" my blog because, when they don't like it (or me), why the hell do they even look at it? Whatever, blogging is amazing and I hope when I am a grandma with three kittens and a donkey, I am still able to do it.
Something closely related to my blog is fashion, obviously. I go nuts for Meadham Kirchhoff or Doc Martens (see last post). Fashion is just my way to express who I am and who I want to be. Let's save this stuff for a blogging anniversary. But I go nuts for fashion, and I mean it.
See what's left. Woodstock, glittered shoes, black lips ( I wrote about them earlier, you know, they are witchy and amazing.) , unicorns, David Bowie and Led Zeppelin. Which is *obviously* perfect. Let's start with the music stuff. Led Zeppelin and David Bowie - no better music in our galaxy (I wonder what music Spock would like...). David Bowie is such an amazing and inspiring man, he was never afraid of doing something that would seem weird. He just gives a fuck and rocks the stage. He's immortal. And kinda hot, by the way. Led Zeppelin is (as David Bowie) just too awesome to describe. "Stairway to heaven" is, in my opinion, the best song ever. It's just pure beauty.
Another amazing kind of music is Reggae (good Vibrations...). I wish wish wish I would be living in the Sixties and Seventies - it seems like the perfect time to me. Full of petticoats and this peace movement dudes, known as "Hippies". Just, they didn't care if it was raining or stuff, they just partied all day long and were hanging around being stoned, wearing daisies in their hair and living life. It must have been like seeing the center of the universe, full of beauty, something which can't be described.
What I love, too, is Glitter. It's just literally the best thing ever! It's magical!
And so are unicorns. They do exist, maybe in a left valley in the Himalaya mountains full of purple flowers and a lake to clear for this planet. And one day I will ride a unicorn and it will be my best friend. And it will glitter because everything perfect glitters!

Wow. I wrote way too much. And I am not even done yet. Some daily life: We adopted a little incredibly cute hamster! My Dad found it at the waste dump because someone really awful threw him away! He's a little bit sick, but he's eating and he's fluffy and his name is George. Such a Cutie!

Hope you had an amazing day,

Mine's a tale that can't be told, my freedom I hold dear

An Ode to Docs

Docs are a very important part of the blogger community. I mean, every blogger seems to own at least one pair, except me. They are my number one on my Christmas wishlist forever. Here's why Doc Martens are officially the best shoes in the universe.

1. They make each and every look perfect.

Whether you are wearing Tulle, Lace, Levi's Cutoffs, or your style's rather kawaii, Doc Martens will always look perfect. They come in incredibly many colors, so it's pretty hard to choose. My all-time-favorite are black one's - classic and rebellious, though. They suit everybody, and they look amazing with every outfit. I mean, see the collage above - what could be more different than those two looks? And every look above is perfect!

2. They add a badass touch to every outfit.

As Docs are pretty heavy, they remind us of the good old Grunge and Punk times. And wearing something grunge or punk is badass and amazing.

3. They can be worn to everything.

And with everything, I mean everything. See point Nr. 1. Shoes to go with a Tulle dress? Docs! Shoes to go with your black lipstick? Docs! Shoes to go with your school uniform? Docs! Shoes to go with your favourite worn-out Top? Docs! Shoes to go with your customized Jeans Jacket? Docs! 

4. They will always be "in". 

Since the Label established aroud 1945, they are having huge success. Like you can see above, Docs are amazing. And too amazing to ever be out, or even in, they are just perfect no matter which decade.

5. They are Doc Martens.

Yep. I have been searching for similar boots a long time, but it's hopeless. There are no Doc Martens fake boots which look as awesome as the Original. I promise.

Can I hear some clapping hands, please? Yay for Docs! 

Do you own a pair (oh, why am I even asking.)? I think a pair of Docs belong to every amazing closet. I really hope I will get a pair for Christmas!

See the moon above the stars

Hey guys. I am feeling kinda uninspired the past few days, soo...
I am wearing this outfit over and over. It's just so cozy and features all my favourite pieces! Sorry, I should pretend I am super proffessional but I don't have a thousands of clothes, but I love the pieces I own. All of these garments have been mentioned on my blog already, so let's just see it as a round-up. Those Wedges are from Primark, my trousers are Zara (These two pieces are actually the only ones I am owning from those Mainstream shops - I think I don't own anything besides a black top from H&M, and I am proud of that, duh.) The shirt's DIYed and the collar thrifted. I don't wear any jewelery because I am way too lazy for accessoires. You know what's missing there? The Army Jacket.

 Know what's still missing? The best shoes on earth, Doc Martens.

Eek? My face? And my oh-so-sexy pose? Huh. Really not nice. I look like Alan Harpour!
I often imagine outfits, or things which would match my look perfectly. As I am not super rich, I mean, I am spending way too much money for clothing anyways, I often can't afford my dream garments. Sigh. Thus, I am only imagining my style...
Hey, wait, it's Christmas time soon! My wishlist is getting bigger and bigger...
What's on your wishlist? Would you be interested in seeing mine?

Some daily life: We had no school today! I was chilling' at home and relaxing in my bed. Then I went to the city to meet some friends, we drank hot chocolate and it was fun and really nice. Yep.
And, dunno if you noticed, 56 MEMBERS! Thank you so much! (Ah, and if you are reading my blog and you aren't a follower... go follow! (: )

Lovers looking for the first little stars

 Hey. So, I am really sorry for this lack of posting lately, I hope I will finde more time for blogging soon. Well, this is a collar I made today. I wanted to create a piece for feminism, and what could be better than using a rookie tutorial and pompoms for that? (Okay, Pompoms have actually nothing to do with feminism, but hey, Pompoms! ). I am not sure how to pair it yet (code for: I am too lazy to leave the couch and have a look into my closet), but collars can be worn with everything!
How are you? How did you spend your weekend? I had planned an almost perfect weekend, but then something went wrong. It was amazing, though! I had a sleepover with my best buddy, and we created our perfect future... So we will buy an Island, hopefully soon, and we will have many unicorns and fairies and glittered rooms. I am actually dreaming about our island all the time... I will never stop believing that there are still some unicorns left on this planet (don't laugh.)! Am I the only one to dream of unicorns?
Okay, I am getting way to dreamy. I have to do some homework now (sucks.). So, my also-in-unicorns-believing-friends, live long and prosper!



Ah Bitchface. "Don't you realize that I am not listening to your boring stuff at all?!"
I actually didn't meant to bitchface in this picture... but I did.

Who shines white light and wants to show how everything still turns to gold.

Isn't this one totally awesome? I DIYed it today and I am so proud of it! I had this in my mind for two months, but I just never found the time. Finally, I made it today, and I am kinda proud! It's one of my favourite pieces now. I was very inspirated by the Rookie Style Nationwide, in Picture 41 there's a girl with the same one, and I was really fascinated by this picture!

Ah I ordered this dress a few days ago, and it arrived really soon after ordering it. I didn't expect it to arrive so quickly, so I was really surprised (I actually screamed out loud.) It's like super tight and I have to admit, I look kinda amazing wearing it... 

Eep! I made a Led Zeppelin shirt! I have been a fan of Led Zeppelin since I first heard "Stairway to heaven". I love this tee - I used a transfer printer foil or something and it turned out amazing! The colors are wonderful and Led Zeppelin rocks the world.

A super fun Michael Schumacher shirt ( he's a Formula 1 guy, and some of the best one's ever. Kind of a german hero, or so.) I got it for fifty cents at our local thrift store.

Hey dudes. These are just some things I bought or made the past few days. I am really busy this week, so sorry for this lack of posting. I hope everything's okay with you guys!

Madness is the emergency exit

Hey lovelies! First of all, thank you so much dear new (and old) followers! You are the best crew I could wish for.
I've got a DIY for you today! Well, it's not even really DIY because it's so much self-explanatory. But let's pretend I am a super professional blogger and you guys do not know how to use a hot glue gun, so I will write a tutorial. (:

 DIY Glitter/junk/whatever hairclips

1. Supplies: You will need a hot glue gun, some hairclips, and jewels and junk. If you have a box where you keep all your junk and child-y stuff in, that would be just perfect.
2. Glue tha shit on.
3. Yeah you are actually done now, but here's some inspiration how you could decorate your hairclips. I love the second one in the picture, and the pompom one.
 Yay you're finished! That was difficult. cough.

Some daily life stuff: I went to a huge dollar store yesterday and when I walked in, it felt like walking right into a treasure box. So many great junk and aah. I love dollar stores - so many awesome junk to craft with and everything is so cheap (which is basically the sense of a dollar store.). I bought pompoms, jewels, some bracelet stuff and - get this - 250 stickers. I already made a little collage. And today will be amazing because I will go to a party later and tomorrow my Hippie friends and I will have a sleepover! We will have so much fun, and we will be super creative, and we will bejewel our tights. Eep, I am so exited! In other news, I went to the cinema with my Dad yesterday. We saw "Skyfall" (Yay for Bond, James Bond!) and it was one of the most exiting and best movies I have ever seen. 

And I made a nice Spock drawing, I think it turned out quite cool. I am currently totally crazy on working on my journal, I am drawing everything in there. Here are a few pictures.

I hope you are having an amazing day,

Obsession (and Trend spotting): Religious Prints

Ah yeah. This one's a difficult topic. I discussed it with my mum about two hours. Like, how can people wear religious stuff when they aren't believing in God or whoever? And I was like, how can people wear clothes if they aren't into fashion?
I love Statement tees, but only because I am wearing a tee with Buddha or whoever printed on, do I really have to believe in him? The thing is, this kind of print is not meant as a Statement (it can be, of course.). People are wearing it because it looks good, and they do not wanna tell anything with this top (besides being supercool.) . I hope you get what I mean.

Anyways, those prints are amazing. They can be kitsch and sassy at the same time!
The most common trend is cross print now - but there are many more ways of religious prints! Cross print is super cool, by the way. I also love Buddha or Shiva prints! Or *totally* kitschy Mother Mary prints.

Tee - Amazon
Dress - Motel
Creepers - Topshop

Everything from Topshop (Dress, Skirt, Jacket, Tee)
Shoes - Doc Martens

This one is full of cross prints. Wear the glitter top over the ruffled dress with the Biker Jacket to create a "breaking" look.

Maxi Skirt - Topshop
Skater skirt - Topshop
Over knee socks - Topshop
Mother Mary Sweater - Asos
Wedges - Asos

What do you think about religious prints? Do you own some pieces with those prints?

Love, Mary

I am proud of being weird, you know

Hey hey hey darlings. Sorry for this way too much daily life stuff on my blog lately - this will change soon and I will blog more about fashion. Let me tell you something about today's outfit. As you may have recognized, I love collars lately. I wear them with everything. Today, I was just pulling some stuff out of my closet, and it looked quite cool together, I guess. I first wore a jeans button-up with this, but it didn't felt good. When I saw myself in the mirror, I was like "Oh wait. This is way too normal. You look like a mainstream bitch." and got my awesome customized jeans jacket out. And it felt way better. Dressing different has become a huge part of my personality and life, I could never walk out the door in just some mainstream stuff (H&M, you know...) cuz I am celebrating weirdness with everything I do. 
Enough of this. Today was (and will be) quite cool, we took a long long walk on the beach and will go to the swimming pool now (yay!). I took many more pictures. Dude, how much I love Oskar (my reflex camera, new readers!)! And I ate so much that I feel pretty sick now. Oh well... 
Happy Halloween. I kinda forgot to say that last time. How did you celebrated Halloween? 

Live long and prosper ( I am such a Star Trek Maniac...) or Bye Bye,
