I forgot to mention a funny thing that happened in Berlin in my first week. I was in my local supermarket an my roommate says "Hey look, it's Merkel." Now we had been joking around before so I was all "Yeah yeah, whatever you say..." but she insists on me looking and well? What do you know, it WAS Angela Merkel, chancellor of Germany (if you don't know who she is then you need to pay attention to politics lol!)
So me being sneaky, took a picture with my iPhone (now RIP :((( ) so I figured I'll share with you all so you can chortle at the fact that even people like her go shopping ;)
(nicely instagramed ;) ) And see the security guy behind her? There were two more in front of the shop!

Wow neglect isn't even the right word to describe what I've done with this blog! I'm so sorry that I've been so inactive this year, but truth be told, I've never been busier. Add to that that using my computer wasn't ever really conveniant, especially as I've been the very definition of exhausted throughout the year. Well now I have a laptop so thankfully I can update more often!
I am currently in Berlin to improve my German and I love the city - I live 1 minute's walk away from the Brandenburg Gate yet I don't see a lot of tourists at all! Berlin is also such a laidback city, perfect to experiment with makeup or fashion without getting odd looks *coughluxembourgpariscough*.
I have taken a few pictures, but not really any makeup pictures as I've kept it rather simple with concealer, a bit of cream blush, sometimes mascara and usually pink lipstick. You see, it's really hot here and I'm sweating so much it's untrue so I've decided not to put a lot of effort into my makeup routine.
And as you can see, I got my fringe cut rather spontaneously, which in hindsight wasn't the best idea considering how hot it got afterwards.
And finally photobooth pictures with Sophie, who took most of these pictures here ;)
