last working day

Today was my last working day. Wow.

dress - Zara; blazer - Hanjiro (Tokyo); booties - H&M; bag - Vero Moda;

I'm going to start my bachelor studies in September, this will be a whole new life for me. I've been working in a big bank for 6 years now and I find it unbelievably relieving to be escaping the "adult world".

I liked my job and my colleagues and of course I loved getting a paycheck every month but I am so excited to live a student life surrounded by people my age who want to have fun, go on adventures and simply enjoy life. This is an aspect that is often forgotten in the "adult world" of working =P People are so focused on their work, their career and goals that they forget to have fun.

So now I am really looking forward to what lies ahead of me, I'm thrilled and also a little scared but it's going to be great.

Before the semester starts in September I'm going be relaxing at home for 6 weeks. I will use this time for some personal projects like getting a tan, cleaning out my wardrobe, changing the layout/design of my blog, paint my wall, wearing all the unworn clothes in my closet, go swimming at least twice a week, learning to play my guitar properly, setting up an online store to sell some things, reading all of the 6 books I bought...haha I guess I'm lucky if I even manage to do half of the things I just listed =P.

I only discovered this magical magazine by coincidence at a small kiosk yesterday. It's like a German (well actually it's Austrian =P) version of Lula - very girly and romantic, playful and feminine.

I'm going to take a closer look at the magazine today and maybe take some pictures for you - it's lovely, really. You can see a preview of the magazine on the website. I might even get a subscription so I don't have to hunt the mag down everytime =P.

partying Toyko style

I recently discovered these party pictures from Toyko.
Kinda makes me wonder why I never really went clubbing in Japan. It's definitely on my to-do list for the next time I'm in Tokyo. These Japanese kids sure know how to have fun!

boot love

^ Saw these Burberry Prorsum Fall 09 inspired Zara boots the other day and they've been on my mind ever since >.< They would make a damn good fall/winter boot with the rubber sole...but I simply can't justify buying anymore shoes at the moment...haha. But I'm so tempted...gah, I drooled over the originals so many times.

pink lemonade

After a few hot summer days (which I didn't really get to enjoy as I was stuck at work most of the time) the rain is back, the sky is grey and my hair all puffy and frizzy from the humidity in the air.
Dreaming of the beach, sun and holidays seems like a good thing to do right now.
