answers, part 2.

So here goes part 2 of the answers. If you have anymore questions, just keep them coming and I will be happy to do a part 3 soon. I have some fun posts planned for this week, including one about the month-long trip Sophie and I will be leaving on, 3 weeks from Friday. 
On another note, I got my hair done today. (FINALLY, it’s been 6 months since my last visit to the hair-dresser…YUCK!!) To be honest, I am such a baby about my hair. I only had it cut about 2-3 inches (5-6cm) but it feels super short and weird. To me the bottom looks totally chopped of and I think it may take some getting used to. I’m sure you can’t even see a difference but I get super weird about it. By the way, does anyone else HATE the way the hairdresser blow-dries your hair?! She always makes my layers curl into my face, rather than flipping them out…makes my face look rounder than it already is. Anywaysss, enough with the whining :) I am acutally really happy I got it cut and colored, ready for summer and nice and healthy again.
“new” hair.

  1. Is your hair color natural?
    yes and no :) I do have my hair dyed but pretty close to my natural color. I just want it to look more shiny and not as dull so I get a slightly more red-ish color than my natural hair with highlights 2 shades lighter underneath.
  2. How old are you?
    21. People usually guess anything from 19 to 24.
  3. Where do you mostly buy your clothes?
    wayyy too much Zara going on in my closet! For some reason I always end up finding something I like there but I do enjoy buying special pieces at other places and shopping online (Asos, NewLook, Topshop,…) Whenever I’m in California, I love going to all the little boutiques in Laguna Beach like the LF store, Muse, … However, Nordstrom is also a big favorite and of course Forever 21. I think the list could go on and on :)
  4. How tall are you?
    172cm, not really the tallest (wish I had about 3-5cm extra) but I can live with it.
  5. Whats your job? (if you have one)
    Ever since I got out of high school I have worked. I enjoy making my own money and being able to spend it on whatever I like, even if it is another unnecessary pair of shoes :) I currently work at an italian restaurant as a waitress. For sure not what I want to to my entire life but college is my first priority at the moment and the work schedule works out great with my classes. Every once in a while I work in different promotion jobs and I have recently also worked the guest-list at a clubbing.
  6. What countries have you lived in?
    Germany, USA and Austria.
  7. Whats your favorite blog?
    There are too many great ones in order to pick a favorite but my daily reads definitely include Stylescrapbook, The Blonde Salad, afterDRK, Sabo Skirt, Gypsy*Diaries, The Vogue Diaries, Sterling Style and many many more!! On the left side of my blog, there is a list of all the ones I adore.
  8. What kind of music do you like?
    Everything!! Seriously, I could never pick a single genre or band as my favorite. Depending on my mood I love anything from John Lennon to The Killers or A Fine Frenzy to David Guetta or Axwell. I have serious issues picking favorite things :)
  9. Are you a model?
    Ohh my goodness, NO! You guys are totally sweet for asking this question, and even though it is very flattering, I have no idea where you would get that from.
  1. Do you exercise a lot? If so, what sport?
    I actually do exercise a lot. Unlike most other bloggers, I am not blessed with a model-like body and have to work pretty hard to stay semi-in-shape. I work out about 6-7 times a week, half being cardio, the other half weights and strengthening. For the cardio-days I run for at least 30 minutes and up to an hour and 15 minutes (about 7miles or 11km), depending on my mood. For the weight-days I go to the gym and do things like leg-press, squats, crunches, different exercises for my arms (usually with 10lb. Weights, 3 sets of 15 reps), some biking to warm up (about 10-20 min.) and finish it of with 20-30 min. of cardio (treadmill or cross-trainer).
  2. Do you follow a diet or eat whatever you want?
    I don’t necessarily follow a strict diet, although I really enjoy eating healthy. I try to eat 3 good meals a day, lunch being the most and dinner being the lightest. My breakfast is either cooked oatmeal with fruit or fresh fruit, 1% yogurt and whole-wheat flakes. For lunch I basically eat whatever, if possible no fast-food tho. I try to keep my dinner very light, salad with chicken breast or some fresh vegetables and a slice of whole-wheat bread. However, don’t get me wrong, the occasional dessert, bbq or ice-cream is a must and I don’t believe in depriving myself of anything.
  1. Did you use to live in the US?
    Yes I did and I absolutely loved it. Due to my dads work my entire family moved to Laguna Niguel, California when I was 11. We lived there for 5 years and moved to Austria shortly before I turned 16. I still go back every year, my best friend in the world is from Dana Point and I hate being thousands of miles away from her. (Love you Alex!!!)
  2. How do you support your shopping habit?
    Ever since I graduated high school I have been working. I took a year off after graduating and worked full-time for 8 months. I saved up lots during that time. Since being at college I am a waitress at an italian restaurant and work other little jobs on the side. I am fortunate enough to have parents who are able to take care of my apartment, food and college fees for books and such, therefore whatever I make working part-time is mine to keep.

P.S. Yesterday I went on a beautiful hike with my parents. It’s funny how sometimes you forget to appreciate the beautiful things in life, that sit right in front of your nose. Now that I live in a bigger city and am home less, I am finally learning to see how breath-taking the area where my parents live really is.

Hope your weekend was as wonderful as mine. Lots of time with the family, late dinners in the backyard and plenty of hours in the sun.

    Ok, your comment about the hairdress is too perfect! EVERY time I go, I hate the way my hair is dried. It is so dissapointing to have to come home and style it all over again. Your hair looks great though (as always!)

  10. MsHark says:

    Loved to read this again!!! BTW Dana Point is totally where I want to live! Hopefully next year, after China.

    Your hair IS gorgeous, the place your parents live is STUNNING – people travel thousands and thousands of miles and spend thousands of dollars for views like that!!

    BTW I can't believe how cute you look hiking!! I look a mess! LOL

  11. Silvia says:

    I am like a baby with my hair too. I hate every time the hair-dresser cut more than she had :(
    I love to read your answers, it's a good idea.


  12. Jessica says:

    I just found your blog!

    You're so pretty! I also hate when the hairdresser blow dries my hair. Not only does she flip the ends under, but then she makes my hair a bit too voluminous. I'm fine with volume when it's not huge! I've stopped letting her dry it and I just go home after to take care of it.

  13. Cafe Fashionista says:

    Ah, I LOVE your hair – it never ceases to amaze me…so pretty! I have to start shopping at Zara – seriously. Right now I have WAY too much Forever 21 in my wardrobe – I LOVE it there!! :)

  14. Fashion, Art and other fancies says:

    Trust all is well;-)

  16. Ashley says:

    Love the new hair girlie! I've always liked long side bangs too since I also have a round face. Well I have big cheeks…lol!


  17. this free bird says:

    I had no idea you lived in California before (I guess why would I?)

    Anyway, the next time you're in Laguna Beach stop into Laguna Supply and prepare to have your heart skip a bunch of beats! It is an amazing store with a blend of great off beat brands, contemporary and some French. Swoon!!

    ps – your hair looks fabulous!! xo
