NEW IN #2



After getting various tips on e-mail,comment and facebook, I bought these Acne Pistol look-a-likes in Bianco, for 80 euro. They're so comfortable and look perfect with black jeans. Oh wait, I don't have any black jeans. Need to buy. :D
The girl who helped me @ Bianco was so friendly, and she even offered and tried on the boots on herself to show me how they will look with black leggings, cause I was wearing gray tights, and couldn't quite tell, haha.

NEW IN #1



This is the first thing I bought yesterday. A superduper warm (!!!) winter coat from Zara! I'm not usually one to run after trends and wear the latest things, but this coat is really in cause of the camel and shearling. It took me ages to find a winter coat, that looks nice and is warm. Yesterday me and my mum found quite a lot of potential winter coats, but they were sall in a khaki color, and I already have two coats like that, so I wanted something different. I wasn't even thinking of buying a camel coat, cause all the ones I've seen so far were to the knees, which I think is only nice with high heels, which I don't wear on a daily basis. Then I saw this, and kinda fell in love. When I tried it on, it fit me perfectly. And!! it has big pockets, which is really important to me cause I'm always putting my hands in my pockets :D score!

" You need to be rich to have a good blog and style"

This is a really popular stereotype, to which I don't agree at all. I've read comments like "you're only so famous/successful cause you're rich and can afford to buy new clothes every day" on maaaaaaany blogs. You don't need to buy new clothes every day, go on vacations all the time or fashion shows to have a good blog.

To have a good blog you need:
- Good/interesting pictures
- Good style
- Good layout
- Interesting text
- To be original/different

I'll take you through one step at a time.

Of course a professional camera helps, to get good pictures. But it's not the key! There's so many cheap and digital cameras that you can get nowadays with pretty good quality. And you can just download any image editing program for free, to improve the pictures. To have interesting pictures, you don't need any money at all, simply a camera, inspiration and creativity.

Many say that you can only have a good style when you're rich and can afford all the coolest clothes. WHAAAT?! There's so many fashion-forward people who often shop in vintage and second hand shops. Some combine cheap and expensive. Some people, like me, mostly shop at sales. If I have 100 € in my pocket, I prefer spending it on 10 things, rather than 1. That's how I get more clothes. And of course, I don't buy the cheapest and most bad quality things, I often find really good quality clothes that have been reduced from 50€ to, say, 10€. To have a good style you need creativity, originality, and YOUR OWN STYLE which will inspire people. NOT LOTS OF MONEY!!! Here's some tihngs that are on sale @ New Look, and don't cost so much:


Good layout is necessary, to make the blog readable and appealing to the eye. You don't need to be rich to have that. Of course some people employ a layout designer to do the job for them, but it's not necessary. I do my layout myself, because I understand HTML, after years of experience. But Blogger has a template designer, a place where you can easily change your blog design, simply by choosing colors, and all that!

Interesting text definitely doesn't require any money. All it requires is something that people will enjoy reading. Simple as that. Also being original doesn't require anything. Be it your haircut, or your "signature pants" or whatever, just anything that people will remember you of.

In conclusion, to have a good blog, you don't need to be rich, but you need to have a cool personality! Ideas, creativity, funny text, and so on!

____________________________________

Another ridiculous stereotype is "she's only popular because she's skinny/pretty". I won't even go into explaining why that's wrong. I can just tell you that a skinny/pretty girl can be very insecure and shy and wear all the wrong and ugly clothes on her body, whereas an overweight/ugly girl can be confident, outgoing, fun, and wear the nicest and best clothes for her body & totally outshine the skinny/pretty girl. Get it?

Lunch photos




(photos taken at school today)
Heyhey! Now holidays have finally started, I am almost broke and so many of my friends are away. And I can't stop missing Freddy, although I haven't seen him for only one day.
On a different note, can you tell me what good shops there are in Trier center? I haven't been in the center part since last year November, so I guess there's some new shops. I'm probably going there tomorrow. xo

Je voudrais




(photos from shop.HM.com)
Oh dear, just stumbled upon all these. Why, oh why did I spend so much money this week on donuts, sandwiches, apricot juice, and other stuff? Ughhhh. Anyways, these are on my wishlist, that should soon turn into a have-list, haha.

BLACK 'N' WHITE


(denim leggings -pieces, top - H&M, bag - modekungen.se)
This is what I wore today. Was an okay day. Missed Freddy, cause he's in Denmark now, but I used a looooooot of my time studying yesterday and today for my economics test. I got 19/20, which is equivalent to 9.5 out of 10. Woohooo! Now I'm going to watch some desperate housewives.

XX


Me yesterday. I first wanted to wear the cardigan on the first picture, but changed my mind and chose the other cardigan, which is on the second picture. I think it looks much better! Sometimes in mornings when I don't know what to wear, I take a picture of myself, to see how I look, because in the mirror it's hard to see yourself from behind and so on. Fickende Fische is really good by the way! xo

N E W s t u f f


Les Jumelles (click) were so kind and said I can choose what I want, and of course I chose this pink cat necklace, and received it yesterday. It's so nice. I'm not a big necklace person (I buy many, but almost never wear them), but I can already see this with a lot of my outfits.

And mini lunch shopping, these two lace hairclips from H&M. I already have so many bow hairclips, but none in this color or lace, that's my excuse!

ACNE PISTOLS


Hey. Anyone know where I can get an Acne Pistols lookalike? Don't feel like paying 350 euro for a pair of boots. But I'm so in love with these, so I really want to find a cheaper lookalike. Help me out? Any shops in Luxembourg where you've seen something very similar? xo

Today's outfit


Hey guys, this is what I wore today. Quick pics! Now I'm off to write my sociology essay and for dinner - pizza. Won't blog anymore today, but you can ask me stuff on formspring.

Train concert


I totally forgot to tell you about the Train concert which I attended a week ago! They were really good, and there were quite a lot of older people, so it wasn't full of moshing and beer like usually! I took some pictures/videos with my iPhone, because I didn't have my camera with me, hence the quality.

1st video: Hey Soul Sister
2nd video: Here he sang without the microphone. He basically wanted the crowd to be quiet and then he sang without the microphone, and I think his voice is soo good! Stupid that some silly girls started cheering, kinda ruins it :D Anyway, enjoy (:

Today's outfit



(faux fur scarf/snood thing - asos, coat, jennyfer)
Had a few seconds to take some outfit pics today with my iphone, hence the bad quality! I'm back from the cinema, and relaxing. I think The Social Network was a cool movie, really interesting, and you should all go and see it. Oh, did I tell you about my math test? I'm so pissed off cause I got 8.4/10, and I got everything right, but I somehow didn't do one question (I didn't was struggling with time, and I mixed up two questions, which resulted me in not even answering one of them for some reason..) and that's why i didn't get a 10, like I thought I would. F***! I'm basically bothering everyone with this the whole day, haha, but I mean I was so close, but yeah, something always goes wrong! Now I will watch Desperate Housewives, then think of what to do tomorrow (anyone wanna meet?), and then sleep. xox

22nd



(photos taken with iphone)
Heyhey! I took some pics with my iphone during lunch today, just for fun! Ate again a macaron + tried one with nuts flavor. And Fred brought me Cocio chocolate milk (LOVE it!), cause I was really sad. Now I'm probably gonna go and watch the Social Network, seems really interesting from what I've heard. Have a great Friday, people! xo

Macarons


Today, for the first time in my whole life (trying to make this sound really important, haha), I tried a macaron! I bought a pink one which had some red jam-ish thing inside it. Was really good. Which ones are the best? I wanna try some more but since I don't know what each one tastes of, and in the shop it's not written, so I'm afraid of buying some that I don't like :D

Boring day



(top - bershka, jeans - mango)
Hey people. Today was nothing special. Basically the day's events in order: i go to school, have philosophy, go to auchan, buy candy, go to gym @ la coque, my class sees that the teacher isn't there so we all go, therefore i have two free periods, then me and amalie try the "how damaged your lungs are" test and my result was 1 (the lowest is 1, and the higher it goes, the more damaged your lungs are, for example someone i know got 28 ;O), then we spend the rest of the time lying on the couches in 6th/7th year room, then i have german, then back to 6th/7th year room again, then french and then double latvian where i was reading stories about young girls marrying older men for the money ;D. Now I'm home and will watch ANTM newest episode here (click). xo

You give me butterflies


(photo from March 2010)
Morning! I'm super sleepy, not ready for school, for the cold and gym. It was rumoured to be snowing today but the weather forecast doesn't agree, so I guess not! I want to lose some weight (I gained 4 -5 kg during the summer), and I'm trying to eat healthier, and I'm also trying to do sit ups every night and morning, starting from yesterday. Last night I did 13 sit ups before getting into huge pain, and this morning I did 17, before getting into huge pain, haha. I don't really know how to do it properly, I think.

Today's outfit



(coat - jennyfer, bag - modekungen.se, boots - gojane.com, snood - H&M)
I really really liked my outfit today! I don't feel like this every day :D these boots are beyond comfortable, not what I had expected, but of course it's a good thing! I got an 8.5 in my history test and more or less the same (i don't remember whether it was 8.2 or 8.4 or what ?!) for geography. Feel good about it! Now I'm gonna watch AUSNTM cycle 4 and will just relax for a while :) xx

Gothic


I think I could have a look like this for some photoshoot which is coming up. I'm loving this gothic look. I have planned around 3-4 photoshoots in the next few weeks, but knowing me, usually I cancel some for some reason. But yeah, holidays are coming, so I'm hoping to do all. Should be great fun :) xx

PS. i'm joining this giveaway (click).

Little red riding hood



This was my outfit today. Now I'm home, super tired, want some good food and to relax. Math test tomorrow but I pretty much know everything. I really hope I can go to Latvia for a few days during the Halloween holidays cause then I will have a VIP pass for Riga Fashion Week. But it's really last moment, so I'm not sure if my dad will find anything.

Winter coats


These coats are something I will never understand. Why do so many girls have them? I think they're ridiculous and look really cheap and take all the fashion away. These look like balloon jackets or something. I guess they are warm, but, even though it's hard to believe, there ARE nice and warm jackets :D But yeah, again this is my point of view, I just really don't like them :)

Dark


Hey. This is me today. Had a hell of a day. Even started crying in some lessons cause of my body pain .. Went home early (after a mini shopping) and took a loong nap, and just woke up. Wanna go back to sleep but I need to shower and do biology homework.. Will try to dress more interesting tomorrow, if I feel better. Anyway, I love this military style dark green-ish coat, the shape is great and I think it was a good way to spend 30 euro. But now I'm looking for bright winter coats, I'm thinking bright blue [click], or bright pink [click]. xx

MORNING!


Hey guys ;) I'm up and..tired. I just wanted to say that I deleted some of the comments for the people who joined the competition because they didn't follow the rules. If you see that your comment has been deleted, but you still wanna join, you can still do it because the competition is up for a week. Just this time read the rules carefully. It's simple. First: LIKE les jumelles on facebook, second: tell me in a comment which item you wanna win (if you don't do this, you won't win anything :D), then give me your facebook or twitter or blog link where you told others about it (there must be a link on your post so people know where to go for the giveaway), and last but not least, put your email. x

00000


Here's a pic from yesterday. I feel exceptionally lazy today, but I'm still doing my french homework, * proud *. We're doing a powerpoint presentation about beauty icons and criterias of beauty and now I need to write about les femmes girafes et les femmes à plateau, woohoo. (if you don't know what they are, just copy paste both of them in google) xx

Details



Some requested more pictures of these shoes, to see them better, here you go!

NEW



This is the rest of the stuff I bought yesterday. A khaki coat (the picture doesn't do it ANY justice), a black snood from H&M and black ballerinas from the new chinese shop @ gare. 11 euro, score! Today will be all about clothes, cause I'm rummaging through my wardrobe, obviously put up some more stuff for sale, and I'm tidying all of my clothes so you might see more clothing posts today. xx

Bow


I bought these shoes today, I'm so in love with them. I don't know if you can clearly see the details on this picture, but the thing on the back is a bow :) they were 30euro. x

Outfit video


My webcam quality is beyond horrible, but I think you can more or less see my outfit. I didn't have any time to edit it, to take the sound off and all that cause I really need to run. Cya! Oh, and me and Fred are together for 11 months today :) ♥

Tonight's outfit


I'm home and this is what I wore to the concert, which, by the way, was really nice. Had a really nice time with Frederik, who was being so sweet all the time ♥

Shoes



Hey y'all. I'm mobile blogging again because when I'll get home today, I'll only have half an hour to get ready to go and meet my boyfriend and later go to Train
concert! Did i tell you i only know one song from them? I'm on the guest list and yep, I've known it for months and haven't taken the time to check out more of their songs, shame on me! Anyway!!! I received my shoes today, the ones I ordered two weeks ago from USA. I took bad quality iphone pics, tried to sharpen them and stuff, but well, better than nothing ;-) have a great friday, everyone ♥

Here's my new dress. Love it!! I also like the color palette, and that it's basically mint green with three black parts on me :) Oh and you can also hype this on lookbook, hah. xx
