- Yesterday was loverrrrboy's birthday so we had a big BBQ with our island family. It was amazing to have everyone we love [with a few exceptions] all in one spot, eating, drinking, mingling and enjoying the karaoke machine we set up complete with English, Tagalog and German songs. My boss was on a roll and together with the birthday boy he sang one German pop song after another, until I joined them at the end of the night. 99 luftballons is a really fun song to sing in German.. We went home wondering where all the food had gone because I could have sworn we started the night off with a mountain of spaghetti bolognese, 15 orders of BBQ ribs, a ton of sausages, 2 ice cream cakes, one mango float, one chocolate cake and much much more since it was a Potluck dinner. Oh yes, we can eat.
- I wanted to know what this black lipstick trend was all about, so I whipped out my black eyeliner and some lip balm and got to work.. I nearly smeared everything when I laughed out loud after a brief flashback of a 12 year old me making the German streets unsafe in my ripped jeans, men's t-shirts and goth make-up.
- Say hello to my new headphones, which can now be considered a somewhat trendy item because of the zebra printed fur. I wanted to get them last year instead of my Jamaican ones, but I was worried about the fur being a little 'hot around the ears'.. so when they went on sale I just jumped at the chance. Besides, nobody should ever say no to 50% off sales.
- Finally, I found this dress at a thrift store together with my fuchsia maxi tunic.. I immediately was taken by the front and back zipper but still have no idea which is which. I chopped a few inches off to make it less mumsy, and have just realized its potential as my favorite beach cover up dress. And the print is absolute perfection.. now if only I could figure out where to buy a similar fabric..
