CELEBRATING my 27th birthday which was yesterday. Where does the time go!? Jeff and I are heading to Nürnberg on Monday for my birthday trip. We’ve decided to do trips for holidays instead of traditional gifts (read more about my thoughts on that here).
COVETING so many shoes. I’m not someone who spontaneously buys shoes – I really think about it and agonize over my different options. I’m rough on my shoes so I only buy good quality kicks that I know can withstand my clumsines and last a long time. My current wishlist consists of these Adidas, these Converse, the perfect pair of Chelsea boots, and these Sam Edelman fringe booties in black.
MISSING the availability of pumpkin everything back home. I’m a huge fan of pumpkin beer. I love it layered with a Guinness on a chilly fall day. I tell Germans this and they think pumpkin beer is the weirdest thing they’ve ever heard of. They seem to forget they mix their beer with soda regularly (I mean, it’s really good… but still strange).
ENJOYING this beautiful fall weather. Here in Germany we’ve reached that perfect sweater weather – not too warm, and not too chilly to bring out a winter coat. The air is crisp and the leaves are just starting to change color. It’s the best for a stroll in the city.
TESTING the Bare Minerals starter kit. I have been on a serious foundation hunt for a few months with little success. My skin is fairly oily, so many foundtaions make me look shiny. I did love this Hourglass foundation, but cannot justify paying $55 for it every 2-3 months. I’d love to know what you use if you have oily skin – I’m looking for a medium/full coverage foundation with a matte finish. I’m beginning to think such things don’t exist.
