I’m sitting in the uni library and should technically be writing my bachelor thesis right now, but instead, I’m blogging *pats herself on the shoulder*. Anyways, there is this cool new watch I thought I should share with my readers. It’s called Time Traveller by Mr Jones Watches and it’s a bit different to a normal watch. It uses 16 landmarks from all around the world, each standing for a different time zone. So you can see Big Ben, the Eiffel Tower, Golden Gate Bridge etc.
Here’s how it works: Depending where you are, you choose the according landmark as your hour hand, which will then make one full rotation in 24 hours. That’s right, you have 24 instead of 12 hour points on this watch, so basically the left side is a.m. and the right side is p.m. Moreover, there’s a little red pigeon which works as the minute hand.
I love this idea and think that this watch is amazing for travellers as it not only shows the time of the time zone you’re in, but also the time in other big cities around the world and it does so in a very creative and fun way.
There are only 100 pieces of this watch as it is a limited edition so if you want to get it, be fast. It retails at £145 and you can get it here: http://www.mrjoneswatches.com/time-traveller/

After wearing huge, chunky rings for a loooong time, I have a new obsession: Small rings and finger tip rings. I was inspired by this photo of Lauren Conrad’s rings and found them so pretty that I went and bought similar ones. And to everyone who thinks finger tip rings fall off easily, I can tell you that they don’t, because they are really light and just stick to your finger if they are the right size.
As you can see, I am also wearing small hoops around my wrist, they complement the rings perfectly and just look so elegant. Small rings and hoops like this are much cheaper than big, chunky jewelry, which is another reason to love this style! I hope you like it as much as I do.

A few days ago I had one of those OMG-I-NEED-TO-HAVE-THIS-moments. I was walking along Friedrichstrasse in Berlin, it was a sunday afternoon and I decided to check out the shop windows at Quartier 206, because they are always very creative. Of course, I also had to walk by the Schumacher store, which brought back nice memories of the Vogue Fashion’s Night Out two years ago. In the Schumacher window, I saw it: The perfect bracelet! Thanks to the internet, I quickly found it in the online store. It’s the Splendor bracelet and it’s 119 Euros. Not too bad, but not too cheap either. I love the mix of classic gold with neon nylon, great contrast! If I didn’t need all my money for my upcoming New York trip, I would probably spend it on this lovely accessory.

As I have already announced in this post, today I will show you my two favorite accessories for spring, my glitter collar and my pearl collar. I got the glitter collar online at ABATABA a few month ago and absolutely love wearing it to grey sweaters or white T-Shirts. It is such an eye catcher and also great for party nights, the only bad thing about it is that it’s a little bit scratchy.
My latest collar purchase is this mint colored beauty from H&M Trend. It looks absolutely wonderful combined to any simple top, T-Shirt, or sweater. The material is really soft and the color is, as you might already know, my favorite at the moment. Because of the pearls it looks very feminine and even a little Chanel-esque combined with the right outfit.
I wish H&M made this collar in more colors, but since the collar trend is not even at its peak yet, I am sure to find more great collars in stores soon!

I know I just blogged about jewelry two posts ago, but when I received pictures of the new Stella & Dot summer 2012 jewelry, I just had to share them. I literally love every piece. The green cocktail ring, the filigree golden leave hand cuff, and the tribal inspired necklaces are on top of my “I-need-to-have-this-list”. After this long and -at the moment- very cold winter, all I want is to be able to wear lots of jewelry and not having to cover it with big jackets, scarves, hats, and gloves anymore. The Stella & Dot jewelry is so creative and suits many different styles, from classic to hippie to romantic. The cherry on top is, it’s not even that expensive! I’d recommend you to check out their online shop.

My love for jewellery seems to be growing as I am getting older. I didn’t really care for rings, necklaces, and bracelets until I graduated from high school; of course I wore earrings and every now and then a watch and mayyybe a necklace, but I never regarded jewellery as accessories. I do now, though, and am always looking out for pieces that don’t look too cheap (even though they might be). A few days ago, I bought this golden bird necklace from H&M and it is my absolute favorite accessory at the moment. It literally makes every T-Shirt or sweater look more elegant and interesting. Moreover,I love any animal inspired piece of jewellery and these birds are especially cute. Last but not least, it was only 4,95 Euros. Let’s hope it wont change color so soon.

Less than four weeks until christmas! I have to admit, I’m not in the holiday mood yet, mostly because of the warm weather that we’ve been experiencing here lately, but I always love to look at the winter campaigns, especially the ones that look festive. Of course, Tiffany & Co delivers wonderful christmas campaigns and this year’s is no exception. Laetitia Casta walks down the steps of what I think is the New York Library in a beauuutiful gown while it’s snowing and is holding the hand of a handsome guy. Sigh!
Another snowy picture was chosen for the Banana Republic campaign. Yes, it looks staged and fake and too happy, BUT… isn’t that what christmas is like? ;)
And then there are the campaigns that aren’t shot in a wintery scenery, yet remind the viewer of christmas nevertheless, because of the party outfits. The H&M holiday campaign pretty much looks the same every year to be honest and even though that’s a bit boring, it still works somehow. My favorite pic this year is the one with Edita Vilkeviciute; she just makes that cheap dress look a hundred bucks more expensive.
Another pretty example of a good holiday campaign is the H by Halston one. Pretty model, pretty set, pretty shoes, thats all you need! So? Can you feel the holiday spirit?

Slowly Germany gets all the shops we need. After Bershka in Berlin last week, Urban Outfitters opened its doors in Frankfurt today and I was there to check it out. About 60 people lined up to be the first ones allowed in, a good amount of people if you ask me, not too packed but still enough to please the staff. At 5 pm, doors opened and I was very happy about the fact that they were on time (a very rare thing in the fashion world).
The store is quite big, there are three levels packed with clothes, jewellery, shoes, bags, underwear, books, CDs, and even home accessories. The prices are pretty high, so I was pleased to find a SALE corner and bought a blouse that was 60% off. The by far best about the store is the wide selection of cool jewellery and the 10% student discount. UO did a good job with this branch, it really reminded me of the one in London, which is a good thing. The staff were friendly and helpful as well.
Urban Outfitters in Frankfurt can be found at Rossmarkt, right at the train station “Hauptwache”. I’ll definitely be back soon! Here are some pics I took today…

If there is one thing that I never stop buying, it’s rings. My obsession with rings began about two years ago and it wont end soon. It is just so easy to buy a ring, you put it on, no need for a changing room, no waiting, no disappointment if it doesn’t fit, just try a different finger, most of the time they’re cheap so there’s no bad feelings afterwards etc etc etc…
By now I own a great collection of gold and silver rings, most of them have either huge stones or some kind of animal on them (I have four owl rings… is that crazy?) and I can proudly say that I wear almost all of them (in contrast to my clothes). Some more expensive ones are precious gifts I got from my parents or my BF which I am very careful not to lose.
Rings also make amazing souvenirs! I bought this ring on one of the Greek islands I went to a few weeks ago, it has the same color as the ocean there, a beautiful minty blue and every time I look at it, it reminds me of the great day I had there when I bought it.
Gotta <3 Rings!
