PURPLE BROWS

 

There are people, who, naturally, dress up appropriately for a special occasion such as Prague Fashion Week, and there are people who, little ashamed, go for a shabby look, because a fashion week means more work than fun for them. Nevertheless, they ain't blind to fashion hacks all around, but keep their eyes wide open, searching for inspiration. For example me spotting Eva Marie having her brows coloured in turquoise green.

Only with one difference - instead of a fashion week, I'm wearing my brows coloured (in purple, not that it has any effect on my stubbornly dark brows) when visiting Aarhus Art Museum.

What about you? How do you apply tiny fragments of extravagance into your daily life?

SJULOVES music #3 - Indie Rock

Sju hasn't been listening to the music during July, because she was on her vacation for more than two weeks. She has also missed her Discover Weekly from Spotify, too. So she has dug deeper into her music storage and dedicated the new playlist to

Indie Rock music, a genre of music she has connected with during those times long gone, when she was just a small music-exploring cub.

I'm not quite sure whether so many super albums have been launched during my first two years at collage or it's somehow related to having one of best periods in my life and now I have those albums somehow connected with happy feelings. One way or another, I haven't discovered that many great albums or songs ever since, and I still keep on returning to these ones.

Do you also return to some music you've discovered a long time ago?

From the diary of a cyclist

April is almost over and after the coldest time in Copenhagen I'm saddling my bike again and my old memories, which I've almost forgotten during the public transport period, are coming back to my mind with a speed of a light:

1. I hate broken glass on the road.

2. I hate cyclists who smoke while biking in front of me.

3. I hate I cannot easily overtake those freaking smokers.

4. I like the view of a bus stuck in a traffic jam (muhehehe, cyclist vs. bus score - 1:0)

5. I hate the hill we live on, especially on my way home.

6. I hate red light on traffic lights - every 20 meters more and more.

7. I hate holes and outfalls on the road.

8. I hate pedestrians jumping into the road without realizing there's is also a very dangerous bike lane (I need to buy myself a proper bell!)

9. I hate cars turning right without giving priority to bikes.

10. And most of all, I hate the rain. Or, god forbid, the hail.

As you see, the first gleam of sunlight doesn't always come with a sunny mood. It will follow soon, I hope, when the weather is improving so much, right!

(No, it's not. But I hope it comes true if I keep on repeating this devout wish.. at least until June).

11 FIRST-WORLD PROBLEMS

jacket: H&M // dress: Monki // bag: Odivi // sneakers: Nike

1. Nechutný rozvrh, kedy máte 4 dni v týždni ranné hodiny.
2. Žiadna sieť // wifi
3. Baterka sa dostáva do červených čísel. 10%, žiadna nabíjačka po ruke a cesta domov ešte veľmi ďaleká.
4. Zas pomiešali emoji. Srdcia v symboloch, handry presunuté z predmetov do ksichtov, vianočný stromček pri veveričke vo zvieratách..nemôžu tam tie nové proste len pridať?? Aaargh!
5. Konečne sú zľavy, konečne si chcete kúpiť vec, po ktorej ste dlho prahli a oni nemajú vaše číslo.
6. Zato majú vaše číslo veci, ktorú ste si bohémsky kúpili za plnú cenu, že veď žijete len raz a sú to len peniaze. Ehm -.-
7. Niekto vám ukradne vec z 'e-košíka' pri tom, ako (pomaly) zadávate objednávku (posledného kusu vo vašom čísle).
8. Nemajú vaše obľúbené jahody. Musíte si kúpiť tie shitné a bez chuti z Tesca, alebo budú vaše raňajky neúplné..
9. Diel sierálu, ktorý ste si práve stiahli a hrozne sa naň tešíte, je dabovaný česky (nič proti češtine, do slovenčiny to nikto nedabuje a koniec-koncov, je to tak aj lepšie) a musíte si stiahnuť ďalší, konečne už v angličtine.
10. Vaše bluetooth spojenie s reprákmi je také pomalé, že si radšej ten zvuk pustíte z mobilu alebo z notebooku
11. Vec, ktorú ste si chceli už tak pred pol rokom kúpiť, začne byť masívne propagovaná naprieč blogosférou a snáď nie je blogerky, ktorá by ju nemala/ nepropagovala/ nepchala ju na každú naštylizovanú instafotku. Okej PR, díky za znechutenie tej veci nám, menej stádovitým.

Zavše sa cítim veľmi šťastná, keď si uvedomím, čo ma to práve rozhnevalo. Fakt. Je to úžasný pocit, byť naštvaná pre také hlúposti. Znamená to, že nie je nič horšie a skutočnejšie, čo by ma mohlo trápiť. Som zdravá, mám kde bývať a čo jesť, a mám svojich blízkych pri sebe. Niet nad pocit, môcť sa trápiť iba hlúposťami.

Aké sú vaše first-worlds problems, ktoré vás hnevajú a tešia zároveň?

1. Really disgusting schedule. You have morning lessons 4 days per week.
2. No network // wifi connection
3. No more juice. The battery is low.
4. They mixed up emoji icons again. Hearts among symbols, clothes among faces ..aaargh!
5. You have been patient and waited for so long for the item you wanted to buy in a sale and now they don't have your size.
6. They have your size on sale, but you've already bought it for the full price.
7. Somebody bought something you had in an e-shop cart while you were (slowly) going through the process of filling in all the form fields.
8. They don't have your favourite brand of strawberries and you have to buy some ordinary one without the expressive taste or, god forbid, go through the day without strawberries..
9. The episode of a series you just downloaded is in Czech instead of English and you have to download a different one.
10. Your bluetooth connection to your speakers is soo crappy that you rather torture yourself with the sound coming from your cellphone // notebook. 
11. Suddenly every freaking fashion blogger has the thing you wanted to buy and it is all over the instagram and the bloggosphere. 

I'm feeling very happy realizing what makes me angry from time to time. Seriously. Noticing how irrelevant problems I sometimes have makes me feel very satisfied with my life. And thankful for being healthy, relatively wealthy, with my loving relatives and friends around me. 

What are your first-world problems, what makes you angry and happy at the same time?
