October Favorites and some notebook porn.

October went by pretty fast, I did not have the chance to actually settle in when there was November 1st... Still I collected quite an amount of things that I used on a regular basis and loved this months, whether I took/wore them to/at uni or had them as support while studying for it...

1. Grey Wedge Boots, kmb, Sale: 10 € Starting of with my buy of the month, got these real leather boots for just 10 € at the "Kauf dich glücklich" Outlet here in Hamburg... and couldn't believe myself. They are super comfy and just my absolute favorites right now.
2. Grey corduroy, 1,50€/m This nice piece of fabric is a substutute for a local market I just discovered, every Saturday is a market at "Lange Bergstraße" and even though most of the stalls ain't too exciting the two fabric stalls had quite good deals.
3. Mattfull candle, Ikea, 1 € I am normally not a huge fan of scented candles but this one smells just like body lotion and I loved it. I actually had to keep myself from burning it down before taking the picture.
4. Diary, bought 2nd hand, 50 ct October was quite an exciting month. I moved out and started uni and therefore I had quite a lot to handle with. I never hat a diary before, but I am pretty surprised how good it worked out for this month.
5. Revlon Grape Lipstick Even though you can spot me wearing a dark lip all year around autumn is certainly the time when I do it the most. My absolute favorite coming to lipsticks is certainly my Revlon one. I am not sure if it is still available, but maybe you can get your hands on recent products. I especially love this one due to the fact that normally a statement lip is quite risky when it comes to wearing it the whole day. But with this I made the experience that it does fade evenly and leaves your lips nicely stained.
6. Tea Carrying fresh water into my flat is certainly not my favorite occupation and as a result I mainly drank tea wether it was hot or cold, I even took my bottle with freshly brewed tea to uni.
7. Silver/gold Vintage earring, my Mums After finding quite a similar brooch my Mum found this one in her stuff. And after my new haircut I loved wearing it, because you could actually see it. We both, my Mum and me, do and did always wear just one statement earring, so no problem with just one existent one.
8. Green loop scarf, knitted by my Mum My Mum got the wool for this one from a former coworker and I loved the unusual color, so I asked her to knit me a scarf when she asked me. And with these really cold days in October it was pretty much a staple in my daily outfits.
9. Leather jacket, unknown brand (original label was removed and replaced by another, usual practice in China) from a tiny boutique in China, 25 € My beloved leather jacket made it finally into my favorites, another bargain piece by the way. Since it was warm enough in the middle of the month I got to wear it quite often... and still love this trusty piece.
10. Red cape, DIY The working process of this cape lasted from last year around this time until the late spring, because there were always adjustments to be made, but this autumn I am finally able to rock the streets with it, and I believe this color and shape will never by totally "out".


These were my favorites, up next are a few detail shots of different pieces and my beloved notebook collection. With getting back into uni I actually started using them all (f.t.t.b : Moleskine City, Blog schedules, 2 fashion inspiration books, 1 food inspiration book, my diary, my homework notebook, my Moleskine cookbook and an Ikea book for Arabic grammar).


Oh, and I went (again) to FleetMeet Fashion Blogger Cafe this month. It was really nice thanks to the organizers, the nice girls and the guys from Kleidung.com, hosting the AfterShow Party.

That's from me this month. What were your favorites?
