I forgot how to human (but it's okay)

Yo, I'm back with some random blabla and also some outfit photos!

On Sunday my family had a huge gathering for Christmas and also my grandma's birthday. This has become somewhat of a tradition, and it's really cool to see my whole "clan" together at least once a year! Actually all of us still live in the local area, and we're a pretty big family so when we all come together... well, let's say at the beginning of our relationship my boyfriend used to joke that we're the local mafia or something (the fact that there is a small spot in my old home village that is named after my grandma's family probably didn't help fight that prejudice, haha).

So, anyway, it was a welcome excuse to pick up some make up brushes and wear something nice for a change.

I was like "Hey I could use some fake lashes, perhaps the not-too-obvious-ones?" and accidentally grabbed a similar looking, much more obvious pair, so I ended up using bottom lashes as well XD

International Lolita Day 2014 - Winter Edition

Hey guys!

Yes, it's that time of the year again! Christmas? No, I mean International Lolita Day, of course ;D

This winter I once againd decided to organize a little meet up, this time it was really casual because I just really wanted to do something "wintery" for the Winter ILD... so I suggested we go ice skating! At first I was unsure if poeople would like the idea, but in the end we were a nice little group after all ^^

Taking a group photo without a designated photographer is always a challenge, but we found a nice spot to take photos in the Stadtpark ^^

Von Gewalt - und deren Legitimation

Sorry non-German speaking folks, I feel like this entry is better put to words in German this time. If you'd like, you can try to use google translate to get a idea on what I'm saying here.

Heute will ich mal einen Beitrag auf Deutsch schreiben - über ein Thema, das gerade in den deutschsprachigen Medien, jedenfalls in Österreich, sehr präsent ist.

Auf der Online-Version der Tagszeitung "Die Presse" veröffentlichte ein Journalist etwas, das wohl ein Kommentar zum Thema Erziehung hätte werden sollen. Der relativ kurze, sehr persönliche Einblick in seine Ansichten zur Kindererziehung erschien in der Rubrik "Familie" (hier nachzulesen) - und löste prompt einen Shitstorm aus, der sich gewaschen hat. Zu Recht - denn wer die körperliche Züchtigung eines Schutzbefohlenen (und sei es auch nur noch so "leichtes" an den Ohren ziehen oder "inszeniertes" übers Knie legen) nicht nur betreibt sondern auch noch derartig idealisiert, verklärt und noch dazu für völlig alternativenlos hält ("Totale Gewaltfreiheit in der Erziehung ist ein infantil-romantischer, militant-pazifistischer Irrglaube wie die Idee der Gewaltfreiheit in der Welt, da ändert auch das gesetzliche Gewaltverbot nichts." - dazu später mehr), und das im Jahr 2014, der braucht sich nicht groß wundern wenn diese Ansichten bei der Mehrheit der Bevölkerung so eine Reaktion auslösen. Aber das ist schlussendlich auch gut so - denn das Thema ist ein derartiges wichtiges dass ohnehin viel, viel mehr und öfter darüber geredet werden sollte. Das Thema heute ist also Gewalt.

Happy 10th Anniversary, WoW (and other excuses for lack of posts) !

Hello everyone!

In case you've been wondering about my "absence" it's easily explained by the fact that World of Warcraft has launched its newest expansion and for the past week I have been busy power leveling, because this time for real, I want to experience the new content right away! :D With Cata and WotLK I had to wait for about a week before I was even able to start playing due to issues with my internet... but it's a lot of fun to be among the first wave of players to reach 100, start doing heroic dungeons and such. It feels a lot better than my super late start into Mists of Pandaria, at a point where nobody would even bother explaining dungeon or raid bosses to me anymore, because everybody was practically facerolling anyway and carrying me!  

Well, enough of the nerd talk... playing Wow means I really neglected some of my other hobbies... and I feel a bit bad about it! I didn't draw more than one picture for a planned art trade with my friend Jacky, I seriously have to clean up the mess in my apartment, we have to fix some stuff as well (got a new lamp for the living room! Finally!), do a lot of laundry... haha :'D

 I did go out once, so I wore make up and nice clothes! Well, except for the fact that it makes me look a bit pregnant I really like the outfit XD

With a frozen Heart and a Soul on Fire

Hello little morsels, ehm, I mean, readers!

Halloween is already over, but I still want to show you some pictures I took last night of my makeshift "costume"!

Originally I planned to go to a party, my boyfriend even changed his shifts to have a free weekend to spend together. However, the host of the party fell ill so it was canceled. We decided to spend a cozy night at home instead, but I still wanted to try out my make up & costume as I had planned, and I even managed to get some almost-decent photos!
