I bought this awesome leopard print top last week in Primark. I saw it hanging up across the shop floor and made a beeline towards it, dragging my reluctant little bro behind me.

They had a billion size 8s and 10s and then, right at the back, I found a 12. I thought it might be a little tight as the material has very little stretch and I usually buy a 14, but it fit perfectly.

It combines my two favourite things right now- leopard print and a peter pan collar. Plus, it was only £8. Billy bargain!

My skirt is also a bargain from Ebay. It's from one of those little cheapy clothes sellers. It's pretty short but, aside from that, much better quality than I was expecting.

I wore it with these suede New Look Mary Janes. I rarely wear heels so this was quite an event. I went to town in them and everything!

Here, have a picture of my face!

  7. sv; Thing is.. doesnt work like that in this country. You can't get a single good paying job unless you have high education. And its really really hard to get a job at all when you're under education. So I'm in a sucky job while studying and aint earning enough for anything else than my rent. So my boyfriend pays all the food etc aswell, without him i'd be homeless. :p And it will probably stay this way until i'm done at the university in approx 4 years if i pass all years. So meh! Going to be hard. You're lucky :)

    Btw love your outfit!

  8. sv; Thanks sweetie. :) I hope i'll pass all my exams, though i sometimes feel like its impossible this year. This is a home-education year so I'm all on my own and with struggles its pretty hard to do what i'm supposed to do some days. So i'm far back with my studies and i'm stressed as hell as I got exams in May. But I hope I'll pass and get into school next year, will be easier then i hope.

    Yeah, I just feel bad for him paying everything for me cause he doesnt earn that much either. So since he has to pay for me he can't afford save anything and he doesnt get to pay off his car etc etc, so its just all frustrating. And I've gained some weight latley too, so soon i got nothing at all to wear and I cant afford clothes so got nothing in the right size, thats also disturbing. :p But i hope we'll get through it, i hope he manage to stay with me.

  9. Hey :)
    You asked me to explain what carnival is which I´ll try now.
    In English it´s known as carnival or Mardi Gras but Mardi Gras is in fact French and just characterizes the Thursday of the carnival days. I don´t really know where the tradition comes from but on Wikipedia they say that it has something to do with ridiculing the leading powers in Germany in the early 19th century.
    Nowadays it is just about letting yourself go and fool around. The kids disguise themselves and go from house to house in order to collect sweets while the adults or teenagers go to costume parties. It´s a bit like the American Halloween just without the spooky part. In the bigger cities there are parades with funny and sociocritical parade floats and in Germany there are a lot of events where tomfools make fun of politicians and tell jokes. I don´t know if those days are celebrated like this in other countries than Germany, Switzerland, Austria and Luxembourg but I hope this helped you a bit :)
