Hold your breath and count to ten, we're losing touch we're losing friends, but we're YOUNG

Due to serious lack of funds I've not allowed myself to look on topshop.com recently. However, with a second installment of my Erasmus grant on the horizon I thought it wouldn't hurt to have a peek...

Ooooh how lovely it is! firstly, loving the Shanghai collection...

I'm not entirely sure if I'm a fan of the Black Kick Flares by Boutique, in fact I'm not but I love the kimono blouses & the orchid and lily hair accessories. 

 Also making me very happy is their 'Dress Up' range of amazing vintage-y looking dresses...

Om nom nom nom!

And making me verrrry happy (thank you Topshop), FINALLY items are pictured on a mannequin as well as a human *cheer* à la this lovely 'tea stained' Limited Edition Sleeveless Spot Mesh Ruffle Dress (only ;) £135/ca. 154€)

PLUS lovely Topshop have added a review section so you can see what other people think about products before buying them, can't hurt can it? :)

click to make bigger :)

Now pleeeease hurry up Mr Erasmus grant :)

Shaddap You Face

I have a new love, for the Two Greedy Italians, Antonio Carluccio & Gennaro Contaldo :D

I want them to be my italian grandpas! every week this has become mine, & my (italian) friend's, guilty pleasure, sitting & cooing over the delicious food they cook as they travel around Italy.

Antonio's lemon & ricotta tart looked amazing, as well as the slow-cooked family stew, nom nom nom :)

If a trip to Italy wasn't on the cards already for the near future, it certainly is now! it's making me hungry just thinking about their cooking :D

I was a dreamer, staring out windows


As if George Bernard Shaw read my mind before I'd even had the thought.

'The English have no respect for their language, and will not teach their children to speak it. They cannot spell it because they have nothing to spell it with but an old foreign alphabet of which only consonants -- and not all of them -- have any agreed speech value. Consequently no man can teach himself what it should sound like from reading it; and it is impossible for an Englishman to open his mouth without making some other Englishman despise him. Most European languages are now accessible in black and white to foreigners: English and French are not thus accessible even to Englishmen and Frenchmen.'

'Preface: A Professor of Phonetics', taken from Pygmalion, George Bernard Shaw (1913)

Hasn't time flown

Apologies once again for the serious lack of posts recently! I've had a crazy amount of work to do in a short space of time but Hallelujah it's all finished now :)

So! I was back in England for the Royal Wedding and it was honestly one of the best days I've had in a long time. Kate looked amazing, Wills looked in love and we celebrated with champagne, tea and cakes; proper Brit stylee :)

But alas, after all the excitement I got on a plane (at 7am - it killed me!) & flew back to Germany ready for the Sommersemester. I'm taking Grundkurs 1 (beginners) Italian this semester so watch this space ;)
Ciao for now, promise to post a lot more soon! what have you all been up to?
