A true love story

Sweater- American Apparel/ Jeans- American Eagle/ Shoes- Forever 21/ Bag- MK/ Belt- Primark/ Necklace- Dogeared/


I was wanting a really comfy and yet elegant look with a little twist so I chose my American Apparel sweater. So there’s a special story to this sweater. I saw it on blogs so many times and I fell in love with it the first time I saw it so I went to American Apparel which is unfortunately an hour away and tried it on. And boom there it was that special moment I had when I tried it on and I knew I couldn’t resist! Have y’all ever had that boom moment? Well, I looked at the price tag and started choking. 90 freaking Euros for a sweater?! So I walked out of the store thinking I would get over it. Well I guess what?! Didn’t happen…. months later when I saw pictures of it again and I was still craving it I bought it! Ever since we’ve been very happy and we will live happily ever after!

1 month back home resume


Exactly one month ago I came back home. It’s been so weird being around all the people I know again. Everything turned out so different than I thought it was gonna be. Apparently everyone knows that you change in a year but now I had to realize that not only I changed during my stay in Texas. I guess people moved on and now it’s time for me to move on. On top of all that unfortunate stuff that has happened in the last 4 weeks my nana had a stroke on Friday and is probably not gonna recover. It’s been one of the hardest times in my life so far and I’m more than hoping that the future is gonna be better! I try to see the best in everything but it’s not that easy. I became a lot closer with my family since I’m back and they’ve been here for me through my troubles. I don’t take it for granted and I’m so thankful! I’m sure life has so many amazing things for me to offer and I’m so excited for all of them to come! Every cloud has a silver lining! You can’t start the next chapter of your life if you keep re-reading your last one. Good night everyone!

Vera Wang at the Bavarian Lakes



Dress- Oasap/ Blouse- Vera Wang/ Shoes- Forever 21/ Nacklace- Forever 21/ Belt- Primark/ Bag- Michael Kors/

I guess Vera Wang has never been to the German countryside, so I took her(more her shirt than Vera herself) there the other day. I'm pretty sure she enjoyed it as much as I did even though I nearly died when I was walking on the peer with my heels on and the whole thing was dangling like crazy! But I guess I was pretty good at hiding that extremely scared face on the pictures right?! 

I just came back from my vacation and honestly I wish I could have stayed! I had such a great time and the weather was so awesome and you can't believe how beautiful Bavaria is! There's some great shopping going on in Munich and I got some new stuff that I'm super excited to share with you guys! Stay tuned for some pictures from my vacation and probably the last post about my exchange year!

Tie die and no regrets

Dress- Sisley/ Bag- Forever 21/ Shoes- H&M/ Necklace- Dogeared/ Rings- Kohl's/ Shades- Versace/


I never thought that I would actually say this but the summer finally came to Germany and it really feels like summer now! Finally I can wear all my beloved summer dresses that are by far my favorite part of my closet! I guess you guys know that I’m a huge fan of gold jewelry and in my opinion it looks so much better to have all details in an outfit the same metallic color and not to mix gold, silver or rose gold. So I was super happy to finally find the perfect black purse with golden details at forever 21 and I’m truly in love with it!

Life has been going kinda strange recently. I was looking forward to come back home (and don’t get me wrong I love being back even though I miss Texas a lot) but things have turned out really weird. People I used to be more than close with have been acting really different and I just really miss the way my life was before my exchange year. But no regrets! Going away was the best thing I’ve done in my life so far and I can’t wait to go back ‘home’ to Texas! Ain’t nobody get time to be upset! I know that the future is so bright that I gotta wear shades!

I hope y’all are having a great summer so far!

The Big Apple Part 2



Yeah I'm out that Brooklyn, now I'm down in Tribeca
Right next to Deniro, but I'll be hood forever
I'm the new Sinatra, and since I made it here
I can make it anywhere, yeah they love me everywhere
I used to cop in Harlem, all of my Dominicano's
Right there up on Broadway, pull me back to that McDonald's
Took it to my stashbox, 560 State Strett
Catch me in the kitchen like a Simmons with them pastries
Cruisin' down 8th Street, off white Lexus
Drivin' so slow, but BK is from Texas
Me, I'm out that Bed-Stuy, home of that boy Biggie
Now I live on billboard and I brought my boys with me
Say whatup to Ty-Ty, still sippin' mai tai's
Sittin' courtside, Knicks & Nets give me high five
Nigga I be Spike'd out, I could trip a referee
Tell by my attitude that I'm most definitely from...

New York
Concrete jungle where dreams are made of
There's nothin' you can't do
Now you're in New York
These streets will make you feel brand new
Big lights will inspire you
Let's hear it for New York, New York,
New York


Catch me at the X with OG at a Yankee game
Shit, I made the Yankee hat more famous then a Yankee can
You should know I bleed blue, but I ain't a Crip though
But I got a gang of Niggas walkin' with my clique though
Welcome to the melting pot, corners where we sellin' rock
Africa Bambata shit, home of the hip-hop
Yellow cab, gypsy cab, dollar cab, holla back
For foreigners it ain't for they act like they forgot how to act
Eight million stories, out there in it naked
City is a pity, half of y'all won't make it
Me, I got a plug, Special Ed "I Got It Made"
If Jesus payin' Lebron, I'm payin' Dwayne Wade
Three dice cee-lo, three card molly
Labour Day Parade, rest in peace Bob Marley
Statue of Liberty, long live the World Trade
Long live the Kingdome, I'm from the Empire St. that's


New York
Concrete jungle where dreams are made of
There's nothin' you can't do
Now you're in New York
These streets will make you feel brand new
Big lights will inspire you
Let's hear it for New York, New York,
New York


Lights is blinding, girls need blinders
So they can step out of bounds quick
The sidelines is, lined with casualties, who sip to life casually
Then gradually become worse, don't bite the apple leaf
Caught up in the in-crowd, now you're in style
End of the winter gets cold, en vogue, with your skin out
City of sin, it's a pity on the wind
Good girls gone bad, the city's filled with them
Mommy took a bus trip, now she got her bust out
Everybody ride her, just like a bus route
Hail Mary to the city, you're a virgin
And Jesus can't save you, life starts when the church end
Came here for school, graduated to the high life
Ball players, rap stars, addicted to the limelight
MDMA got you feelin' like a champion
The city never sleeps, better slip you an Ambien


New York
Concrete jungle where dreams are made of
There's nothin' you can't do
Now you're in New York
These streets will make you feel brand new
Big lights will inspire you
Let's hear it for New York, New York,
New York


One hand in the air for the big city
Streetlights, big dreams, all lookin' pretty
No place in the world that could compare
Put your lighters in the air
Everybody say "Yeah, Yeah. Yeah, Yeah"


New York
Concrete jungle where dreams are made of
There's nothin' you can't do
Now you're in New York
These streets will make you feel brand new
Big lights will inspire you
Let's hear it for New York, New York,
New York

Current Obsession: Rebecca Minkoff Mini Bags

I think everyone has seen this bag before. It's the new most hyped bag in the blogger world. And I just thought that you guys would die to hear my opinion about it right?!

 It's simple yet very elegant and the perfect little bag for a party or just to go shopping with because everything fits in it. And the best thing: the colors! For real guys they have millions of different colors, fabrics and patterns. I really wish I had one but the price is just a little (no lie it's insane) high for a student! The smallest ones start with 200€. I found a cheaper alternative on justfab.com ! Obviously it's not the same but it's only a fraction of the original price and it's okay for now until I can either afford the real one or my birthday comes around( am I the only one that is excited for their birthday all year around?!). I was tempted to buy it when I was at Henri Bendel( yeeeesss girls the place from Gossip Girl) in NYC and they had tones of colors and I just fell in love with it but my wallet was more than empty after I got   myself my dream bag at Michael Kors but more about that in an upcoming post... 

What do you guys think about designer bags in general? Is it something you guys invest your money in?

The Big Apple Part 1



Some folks like to get away
Take a holiday from the neighbourhood
Hop a flight to Miami Beach
Or to Hollywood
But I'm taking a Greyhound
On the Hudson River Line
I'm in a New York state of mind 

I've seen all the movie stars
In their fancy cars and their limousines
Been high in the Rockies under the evergreens
But I know what I'm needing
And I don't want to waste more time
I'm in a New York state of mind 

It was so easy living day by day
Out of touch with the rhythm and blues
But now I need a little give and take
The New York Times, The Daily News 

It comes down to reality
And it's fine with me 'cause I've let it slide
Don't care if it's Chinatown or on Riverside

I don't have any reasons
I've left them all behind
I'm in a New York state of mind 

It was so easy living day by day
Out of touch with the rhythm and blues
But now I need a little give and take
The New York Times, The Daily News 

It comes down to reality
And it's fine with me 'cause I've let it slide
Don't care if it's Chinatown or on Riverside
I don't have any reasons
I've left them all behind
I'm in a New York state of mind 

I'm just taking a Greyhound on the Hudson River Line
'Cause I'm in a New York state of mind


-I will never forget that moment when I was standing on the Top of the Rock with my mom looking at this breathtaking city listening to this song!
