Not quite dead yet

I've been neglecting my blog these past days, mainly because I didn't feel like talking about anything that's going on in my life right now.

But last Monday I went to see the new Captain America movie "The Winter Soldier". Interestingly, in German it has an alternate title, however it's still in English - "The Return of the First Avenger". Kinda confusing! We went to watch it in English though anyway.

I really think more cinemas should show movies in their original version. There are only two cinemas in Vienna who show English movies in original and now that we don't live in the city anymore it's always a bit annoying to go to the inner districts - and especially to get back home at night.

So anyway, this was the look!

Carp quality photos provided to you by the fact that I didn't notice a change in my camera settings or something, so despite the pretty good light in my room they turned out really shitty -__-

Anyhow, my favorite thing about super hero movies - or going to the cinema in general - is putting on some themed make up that fits the movie! In this case I tried some "US-patriotic" colors to mimic Captain America's super hero costume...

Farewell, old friend

Two weeks ago, I heard that you went missing, and last week end you were found. I already knew that you wouldn't come back to us. It was the logical thing to think. You never ran away, rarely got yourself locked up anywhere and you were old. So old in fact, that those past years, when I saw you sleeping somewhere, I was always somewhat scared that one day I'd find you dead some day. So you would assume I was prepared for this. But I was not.

People say cats are less attached to their human "owners" than dogs, less loyal, less protective. They obviously never met a cat like you.

Narcissism vs Body Dysmorphic Disorder, or: The Selfie-Addiction

Hey guys!
It's time for another pretty long rant. If you don't feel like reading through all of it, I'd still be interested in your opinion on the article in question, so if you read through it, leave me a comment and let me know what you think!

So I just recently came across this article about how "Scientists Link Selfies To Narcissism, Addiction & Mental Illness". Bam. What should I say. I know it doesn't make sense to give this article any more attention when I actually think it's poorly written, but I just wanted to put in my two cents on the topic. Anyway, give it a short read and a few minutes to think about the article before you continue to read here - and feel free to tell me your opinion in the comments!

First of all, personally, I really don't like how this article seems to throw Body Dysmorphic Disorder and narcissism in the same pot. These are like complete opposites. Simply check out traits and signs of narcissism vs signs and symptoms of BDD and notice the differences.

Cupcakes, cotton candy and jewelry

Hello guys!

I somehow procrastinated too much this week so I didn't update my blog, shame on me!
Last week end I was at a party - it was Mimi's (not Mimi my former room mate, but a Lolita friend) birthday and so I decided to use the opportunity to dress up in Lolita!

Sorry for the crappy photo again...

The color of what is real /// short outfit post

Ahh the month is almost over and I still have some outfit photos left I wanted to post!

I didn't really put a lot of effort into dressing these past days. I was at work most of the time so I didn't bother to wear "nice" clothes or make up. Most of the time I'm just extremely tired lately. I could sleep all day long and still be tired. I tried to do more sports again, but it just doesn't really help. my sleep-wake rhythm is totally messed up and even if I get to bed early I can't fall asleep before 2am or so. When I get up the next morning and make it through the day like a zombie, I feel incredibly tired. At work I have a hard time concentrating. And when I get home in the evening, I sometimes just fall alseep on the sofa at 5pm or so, and wake up an hour or two later, and of course then I'm restless until it's 2am again. It's really fucked up, but I just hope it's that passing "springtime tiredness" that people talk so much about. I never had that before, but I suppose it could have to do with it.

Anyway, here's an outfit I wore before I got possessed by some lazy sloth or koala spirit:
