10 more things about me

Do you want to know more about me, the writer behind those texts and photos?
For my birthday, I wrote 10 little texts about me.

1. If I could choose, I’d be a cat. Feeling wild and independent outside yet cuddle up in bed at night and be small and sweet. I’d purr all day long, but still  don’t mess with me. My loved ones I’d protect with a paw swipe, but I can cuddle up with them gently and show much affection and love too. A cat combines the savage and the soft together, and thats me.

2. My iPod is the home to dubstep, drum and bass and chillsound in general. I don’t like to listen to the radio, because this mainstream-electro-wannabe-trap-minimal-house-littlebitofdubstep4coolness-crap-mash-up just isn’t my sound.

3. I also don’t like to watch tv, there is just too much commercials and too little movie.

5. Cat are my favorite animals in the world, they’re just too cuddly and lovely, those little cute paws and tiny ears and rosy noses! You know what I’m talking about *-*

6. I love to read everywhere and anywhere, often you’ll find me with the nose in a book on my way home or while eating, a bad habit actually. Although by now I prefer my e-reader when I’m on the go, because it’s just lighter to carry around then a book. But I still love books, to smell them, to hold them, to purchase them, store them in my bookcase, look at their covers and see how many pages are left until the end.

7. I’m a tights-girl, I just love all kinds of tights, and I don’t like to wear jeans as much as tights. They just look cuter, and I wear them no matter what weather it is. And if it’s too cold, wear some cute overknee-socks over them 🙂 My tights tell their own stories, they’re ripped very often although I’m very careful!

8. I’ve always had a weakness for cute things, like boxes, cushions, stuffed animals, clothes, accessoires, notebooks, iphone cases, shoes. I own woolen caps with animal ears, at this moment I fancy a foxy one with fox ears.

9. Lots of times I have phases, in which I occupy myself intensely and for days with a topic. Google everything about it, save as favorites, buy things, everything! But these phases don’t last for too long unfortunately…

10. I love to cuddle up! Especially when it’s cold, rainy and already dark outside. A cosy bed with thick sheets and fluffy pillows, the bedside lamp is on, music is playing, laptop and iPad right beside you, a hot tea on the bedside table, your love right beneath you ❤ That’s what I really really love, more than going outside, dancing, events, everything.

Winter Wonderland

Winter is one of my favorite times. The cold air, beautiful and slowly falling snow. Perfect lightning, perfect white. When everythings colored, they’re just a bunch of houses, randomly thrown together. But when it snows, and a thick layer of cosy looking snow covers the roofs like a fluffy duvet, everything becomes silent and perfect. It’s like time is standing still, as your breath forms breathing clouds in the air and snowflakes is silently falling from the sky.

Lace Helps New Yorkers Beat the Heat

Hello everyone!

Well I think I forgot to write about it, but back when I was in NY for a few days (you sure remember my post Take care NY ), a nice woman calles Nikhita Venugopal from DNAinfo.com adressed me on the streets at Union Square, and asked if she could take a few photos of me wearing a floral lace tank top. I was surprised and a little bit excited too!

10 Reasons why I love America

Since I’ve been here for my first time, I wanted to shoot everything nice and cool I saw on the streets and I noticed how much I things here impressed me, and how many times I shouted out “Oh I love it!” loudly. Now, ten things that I remember I said I loved 😀

10 Reasons why I love America: (non-specific order)

1. The Food. I mean, not that Switzerland had no food or something at all, but they have Twinkies, Nerds, so many colourful sorts of cereals, so much fastfood *.* , frozen yogurt, so many chips and Oreos all over the place.

2. The cars. I haven’t seen so many Cadillacs, Lincoln and Cryslers and limousines in my life. Everytime a limousine passes me, my inner cinema imagines a Blair and Chuck sitting in there, sipping champagne and wearing extravagant clothes…

3. The streets. I love how easy the streets are arranged here. The grid plans, I think they’re called that way, make it much easier for a foreigner or tourist or someone like me who just sucks at reading maps, to find certain places. And it’s perfectly arranged for a walk so you don’t get lost.

4. The people. Every greeting, every “Hey how are you doing?” and every “Take care!” makes me feel better and actually enjoying the day more. When just random cashiers and staff wishing you to have a nice day, you will smile slightly and wish them the same. I really enjoyed that, and because of that i got the feeling that I was welcomed.

5. The malls and departement stores.

“This is big.” – Macys.

Really, I love being in them. Sparkling vitrines, rustling new bags, the smell of leather shoes, fashionable hats everywhere, handbags, tick-tocking of high heels on a wooden floor, the silent ringing of the entrance bell. But sometimes I feel a littlebit lost in between all those clothes, I don’t know where to look at or where to even begin looking. (:

6. The fashion. As I mentioned the malls, I should’ve mentioned fashion. Really, clothes here are just utterly fabulous. I mean if you look in the right places for clothes. I never knew  I could be buying so many clothes in one day. And the shoes. THE SHOES! ❤  And all these fancy dressed people on the streets, sometimes I have to force myself not to stop and ask them for a picture.

7. The magazines. They really are better then the ones you can get in Switzerland. I mean, for teens – Bravo, Yeah!, Heyy! and magazines like that, just don’t have the flair, if you know what I mean. Reading Seventeen or Teen Vogue just makes more fun and you get more for your money than just gossip about lates celebrity scandals. And the fact that in Switzerland you would have to pay about ten swiss francs for something like these, and here because they are teen-mags just about 2.99$ makes me really think about it.

8.  The language. I love the English language. Alright, I have to admit, I adore the British English. Everything said with that accent just sounds more reasonable and classy. But English anyways better then German… German just sounds so harsh and awkward compared to English or even French. And French I just don’t like because all of the grammar stuff. I mean, srsly France? Exceptions over exceptions over special cases. But the language itself is so romantic and beautiful.

9. The New York Style Original Bagel Crisps ❤ Nothing more to add.

10. Wifi. Wifi everywhere. In restaurants, at the airport, cafés, subway – just cool. Makes me want to stay there longer as needed, everytime.

Wifi. Wifi everywhere.

There’s wifi everywhere here. Free wifi. *:*

Take care New York

So, this was pretty much the last day in the city that never sleeps… I regret we are not staying longer… all the glam and glitter! ❤

Words I would use to describe New York are:
noisy, loud, lively, beautiful, hot, polluted, cars, vivid, humans, personality, individuality, consumption, subway, eating, fast & food, shopping, urban, music, movement, green, dreams, hope, civilization, rapidness, sharing, poverty and wealth, both real and surreal.

Aaaand I bought another pair of shoes. I love shoes… ! ♥
