Oh yeah, glorious promises I can't keep - like writing more-or-less meaningful posts this September. Alas, school is here and I frankly don't have nor the time, nor the inspiration to really do that. So here is a (picture heavy) short selection of shows I liked. Eagerly waiting for Paris though.

So, what's new? School started, I'm already starting to feel overwhelmed (it's not going to be my best semester, at least surely not academically, and the nervousness is already setting in). I try to focus on the positive things, because as much as I strive on chaos and challenge, there's such a thing as too much worry. One of the things I'm happy about is my growing dark lipstick collection. There are even a few subjects which seem fairly exciting. But most of all, I eagerly await the In Flames concert - which I know I'm going to love even if this new album isn't quite there.

Yet again another seasonal playlist! I didn't want to wait until the equinox, and September 1st is a fitting date for a little-or-not-so-much melancholic playlist. (Au contraire, there are quite some songs which qualify as happy songs with me.) With the end of September and the new In Flames album and the concert coming, I'll have quite a other music topics to write about anyway.

A little fall wishlist - I am trying to be sensible, so some of these are rather necessities, or things I wanted since long ago. Splurging only on skirts, though I don't think I'll reach 20 pieces by my birthday, but who knows. (I have to go counting.)

Oh my god, I'm a deplorable blogger. Well, it's not like I have more than a few followers, but I like to make plans for the future, and I don't like it when I can't follow through, because of my own completely illogical mood swings. It's not even that I didn't have any inspiration for blogging - I had, I just didn't want to actually do it. A few amazing shows and films I watched, stuff like that. When the experience is new, I have so many thoughts and such difficulty to actually put it into coherent sentences. And later, I don't have the same emotional drive anymore - see my problem? (I am still planning to make that post, sometime in September, probably.) So I thought a simple pre-conceived book tag like this would work, to get me back into the mood.
(The picture is of Rostlaube Free University's Philology Library by Foster + Partners which is a building I like quite a lot.)

This is one of those ridiculous wishlists: full of things I'll most probably never be able to buy (or by the time I'll be able to afford them, I'll be probably too old to wear them...). This may also be seen as a manifesto to my undying love of 'flatform's shoes. One of the reasons I can never buy sandals I truly like because here in the shops there is simply isn't any variety in this sort of footwear. I do realize this kind of stuff wouldn't appear to a larger market, and this country/city I live in simply isn't big enough for anyone to invest in opening more alternative clothing shops.

Just so that I can still retain the label of a 'fashion blog', I thought I'd show a few of my recent purchases (which I am rather happy about, despite my intention of being economical through the summer). But since it's summer, there are sales everywhere, and there were a few items I wanted to buy, I also have lots of free time... I obviously couldn't resist. So here is a quick show of them, along with a few not so great photos.

I'm not quite sure why anyone would be interested in my awful fangirling, but ever since the new album came out (even though I wasn't even that impressed with it) I just can't stop listening to Rise Against. In order to make it out of here with my other musical interests intact, I thought I'd do my usual 20-piece Music Monday playlist on my favourite songs (although apart from the first 2-3 songs, their exact order changes depending on my mood).

Here it is finally, yet again one horribly subjective album review. Of one of the bands of my holy trinity (the others being Nightwish and In Flames), I'm not sure they could do an album I wouldn't like. This time I had my expectations low, because I knew beforehand this was going to be an album with 'personal themes'.
