In August, I attended the Rock en Seine festival in Paris – obviously not alone, but with friends. It was great and it was quite fun to be in Paris again, it is, after all, a very impressing city. I wouldn’t call it lovely, because if you ever walked the streets of Paris, you know how smelly that can be. Or maybe I’m just super spoiled because in Vienna, peeing on the street isn’t a national sport. Yet.
In any case, we flew out a day early to empty all the shops. Even though we weren’t completely successful (we left something for other people, pure empathy), I was finished – getting up at 4:45 a.m. to go to the airport and then a whole day of walking around the city was quite exhausting.
So we returned to our hotel room, happy, wallet empty, and tired. As we were travelling that day, I wanted to wear someting that I like from looks and feel. So I opted for tights – they dry the quickest when it rains, you can take them off quickly if you’re too warm, they only need 3cm² in the suitcase on the way back – short pants (H&M) and a simple black sweater (from Esprit).
I bought so much stuff but when I returned home, I realized I should have also looked at winter clothing, and not only at the sale–racks. Sometimes I seem not to be able to help myself, and I’m drawn to anything thats 50% or 70% off, instead of actively thinking what I’d need. The logic here is, that if I wear two or three summer dresses on top of each other, I’ll be warm throughout winter. Not.
On my nails I chose OPI I saw U saw We saw Warsaw (what a name), and used Cirque Galinda to create a glitter gradient.
OPI I saw U saw We saw Warsaw is a surprisingly unique darker blue creme. It has hints of teal in it and looks much lovelier on me than OPI Roadhouse Blues, my go-to darker blue creme (until now!). Cirque Galinda is a blue glitter mix in a clear base – the base is packed with glitters of many varying sizes and shapes. I love how dreamy the overall look of this manicure is.
