on the riverside.

E & V.

Hello and welcome to our summer flashback post! :) I'm sure all of you guys who have already experienced the cool autumn winds and the annual shopping tour looking for hoodies and cardigans will appreciate this post. In late August we finally managed to both find some free time to do something together. As it was quite hot, we decided to go for a stroll in the neighbourhood. We wandered through nature, saw some beautiful villas and eventually got ourselves a cup of coffee.

After emptying our coffee mugs we decided to go back home and spend the rest of the day at a river nearby the houses we live in. 

Say hello to Esther's supercool Harry Potter towel! (Vicky totally disagrees with that..)

Even though the water was extremely cold, we dared to waddle through it! :)

Well,... and that is it already.. :) We hope you enjoyed the pictures and sorry for not posting anything in the past days - it's been a busy week for both of us!
Have a nice day, you guys! :)


autumn weekend.


Happy monday everyone! :) I hope you enjoyed your weekend, ate lots of unhealthy things and drank tea,- like I did. Even though my weekend consisted of learning for my exam, picking out courses and excursions for university and realizing that I should probably start going on a diet now as I've been eating 100 packages of gingerbread during the past 3 days, I still had a marvellous time. :)
I guess mostly because of- and believe you me, the thing I am going to show you now fills my heart with so much bliss, I can't even describe it - 

.. STURM! 

You guys know what Sturm is? It is by far the most wonderful, slightly alcoholic beverage I've ever tasted in my entire life! Sturm is a sort of wine that is still in its fermentation phase and initially tastes really sweet. As soon as the fermentation has progressed though, the sugar level sinks and the beverage turns into a more alcoholic drink (which, I think, doesn't taste very good anymore). However, yesterday my mom bought our first bottle of Sturm and we were so excited to finally reunite with that wonderful, unique taste!! (I sound like an addict, I know, and I really am one..)

Also, on 9/11 (I guess we could have picked a better day), my boyfriend and I had our 4-year anniversary. I bought him his favourite black pocket planner for university (I'm a hopeless romantic, I know..) and also created a little graphic work to add at least something personal to the present. :) It was inspired by a tutorial I found on the internet a long time ago but I can't remember who it's from.. 

I thought it was really sweet, and so did he. :) As he already invited me to a lovely dinner last week, I didn't expect him to buy me something else (as I am in fact a opponent to all that present-buying and money-spending thing). However, he got me some beautiful white Equador roses -
 .. a Clinique Waterproof mascara and Chubby Stick (he really knows me well) :) ..

 .. and last but not least chocolate supplies .. ! (the gingerbread package is already empty, of course..)

Well, well. :) On Sunday we had a marvellous meal: soup and lasagna! Mmmmmmmmm!

After coffee and cake we decided to take a little stroll in the neighbourhood. And of course, I had to take my camera with me. :)

Have a lovely week you guys! :)


vienna fashion week.


Hey guys! :) 
Yesterday night, our good friend Lisa (the girl I made the bear-toast for) and I attended the MQ Vienna Fashion Week. We were really excited, as we've never been at such an event before... Sitting in those rows (well, we actually had to switch rows in between the shows) and watching those beautiful stylish women walk by ..- we really felt like in that scene of SATC 1 (the movie), it was amazing! :) 

I decided to wear something not too formal, yet classy and modern, but also simple. For me, Ashley Olsen is always a fantastic inspiration, not only fashion-wise. Of course, I didn't look as gorgeous as she does in that picture .. :)

Haha, yes, you heard right- this one is going to be Lisa's new wedding dress. She immediately fell in love with it and so did I! However, I just realized that it'd probably be better to wear a bra under it ..

And now, ladies and gentlemen, let me introduce to you my new favourite model of all times (I've no idea what her name is) and by far one of the most beautiful women I've ever seen in real life-

She's so gorgeous, I wanna cry! I mean, look at her!

After drooling on my camera out of sheer fascination and admiration for that girl, we had to leave the room again to let the crew prepare everything for the next show. So we went to the Pop Up Shop right around the corner. 

 Lisa found another item to cry her eyes out for .. 

 And another one ..

And another one .. (However, we BOTH were outraged by that girl with the beautiful black and white Céline bag.. Our jealous hearts were bleeding..)

But then we got our goodie bags and everything seemed fine again! :)

Oh and here's Lisa again with her beautiful wedding dress. :)

Us, posing like pros ...

Lisa thought that that girl up there looked like the main character from "the Grudge", and I agree, however there is something quite artistic about that dress ..

As I looked around and took photos of the expressions on people's faces, I realized that that blonde girl up there was the one who actually looked like Ashley.. not me.. haha!

I guess Lisa and I can agree that the CALLISTI  Fashion show was the one that impressed us the most! :)

 The designer herself looked like a model ..!

All in all we had so much fun and it was a marvellous experience to whitness a real fashion show for the first time! We'll definitely get tickets for next year as well! :)

P.S.: Here's a video I made on that day. Enjoy :)
