#WeShineOnWAM

12/14/14
When I woke up this morning I had a text from my best friend saying that the sun was shining outside. The blinds being closed I couldn't see if that was true but I was very hesitant to believe it as the weather's been very bad lately. Opening my blinds I saw that the sun was shining indeed. There was still a lot of fog but you could see the sunshine trying to fight it. Unfortunately after lunch when my sister had time to shoot the pictures the fog's gotten dense again, so I'm not very satisfied by their colour. Then again it could be lot worse so here they are. 
We Are The Models initiated a Christmas challenge where you can upload an outfit with #WeShineOnWAM, including a glitter/sequin item. I love glitter and all things shiny, especially during the holiday season, but when it comes to my outfits, I like to keep it simple. In my opinion it's hard to pull off an all sequin look as it often tends to appear cheap. The stone detail on my top and the sequin detail on my bag are just enough to spice things up and give the look a festive touch.

De Moien wei ech erwächt sin haat ech eng Sms fu menger beschter Frendin dass d'Sonn dobaussen geng schengen. Ech wollt et net richteg gleewen, well mer jo an letzer Zait fun deem allerschéinsten Weeder verwinnt guffen (heiert der meng Ironie?), mee et war tatsächlech wouer. Et huet een gesinn dass d'Sonn sech géint den Niwwel wollt duerchsetzen. Bei ais hai uewen ass daat schlussendlech awer net wierklech gelongen well noom Eesen wei mer des Fotoen geholl hun, war den Niwwel rem ganz dicht. Doduerch sin ech och lo net extrem zefridden mat den Farwen fun de Fotoen, mee awer haett et kennen mei schlemm sin. 
We Are The Models, eng Platform fun daer ech eech well geschwaat haat, huet een Chreschtdachs Challenge lanceiert an deem een kann een Outfit op hier Sait posten mat engem Glitzer Detail enner dem Hashtag #WeShineOnWAM. Dest ass also main, och wann en dezent gehaal ass. Ech hun Glitzer an Pailletten wierklech gaer, mee wann et awer zu mengen Outfits kennt dann halen ech et leiwer mei einfach an dezent. Glitzer/Pailletten-Kleeder sin menger Meenung no emmer schweier undoen well se dach oft schnell riskeiren belleg ze wierken. Mier geet also een Top mat engem Steen Detail an des Glitzer Posch duer fier dei festlech Deeg dei lo op eis duerkommen.

back on track

12/10/14
It's been a while since I last posted here but there's a simple reason for that. As some of you might know, I had surgery a couple of weeks ago because of the stomach/digestive problems I've already told you about (here). Despite of what the doctors and I had expected, my condition has gotten even worse after the surgery.  The last weeks have been the worst! Problem is they can't find anything wrong so all they're saying is that I need to be patient. I've been feeling a little better lately, meaning that my mood's brightened up again and thus, I'm trying to go on with my life the best I can. 
Anyhow, this also means that I'm trying my best to update the blog on a more regular basis again, starting now. My flatmate took those outfit pictures before we were headed to the city to get some christmas presents. I'm taking part in the secret Santa thing of the Blogger_lu community and I can't wait to see who picked my name. The outfit will come as no surprise to you, it's exactly how I like it, simple and black, with, this time, a touch of blue ;)

Et ass schon eng Zaitchen hier, dass ech een naien Post gemaach hun, mee dofier gett et een gudden Grond.

dress down

11/14/14
I have to admit that most of the time I dress up to take outfit pictures. This means that I think about what I wore last on the blog, what items I haven't shown you yet etc. This time however, I did not. I came home from an appointment, we had lunch and then I asked my sister if she could spare me some minutes of her time to take pictures. Also she was nice enough to lent me her scarf as I don't have one that works with the polka dotted sweater. It's a very simple outfit: sneakers, jeans and a sweater but that's how I like it. You don't need nothing special on a ordinary Friday morning. I guess it's the grey weather that keeps me so uninspired alongside the fact that my health situation hasn't really improved at all. It feels like I haven't seen the sun in ages. Anyhow, I wish you all a happy weekend:)

Ech muss ganz eierlech soen, dass ech mech oft extra undoen fier Fotoen fier den Blog ze maachen. Daat heescht dass ech mier iwerleen waat ech als letzt op Fotoen unhaat, waat ech nai kaaft hun an eech nach net gewissen hun etc. Destekeier war daat awer net de Fall. Nodeems ech op een Rendez vous war beim Osteopath sin ech heem komm an wei mier fier Metteg gees hun, hun ech meng Schwester gefroot op et kuerz Zait haett fier Fotoen ze maachen. Hat war och sou leiw an huet mier sain Schaal geleint well ech keen neutralen Schal hun deen bei desen Pullover geng passen. Main Outfit ass ganz einfach: Sneakers, Jeans an een Pullover. Mei brauch een och net op engem normalen groen Freiden Moien fannen ech. Ech muss zwar och soen, dass ech am Moment guer net inspireiert sin. Denken dest huet 2 Grenn, eischtens dass mier typescht November Weeder hun mat vill Niwwel an net vill Liicht, mee zweetens awer och dass meng gesondheetlech Situatioun sech nach emmer net gebessert huet. D'kennt mer einfach sou fier wei wann ech d'Sonn schon eiweg net mei gesinn haett. 
Awer weider geet et:) Ech wenschen eech all een schéinen Weekend!
