Outfit 56 - Black jacket

Outfit:
Black fashion week jacket - Queen's Wardrobe
Grey top - Arafeel
Black skinny jeggings - Windsor
Flats - (No brand)

Last Saturday night my hubby & I went to the movies to see "Paranormal Activity 3". Some scenes of this movie were funny and others were really scary, I even jumped in one scene. We realized most of the scenes from the trailer weren't in the movie. ?!?  Overall it wasn't a bad movie. I can't wait until next year to watch the upcoming horror movies, "The Devil Inside" and "The Woman in Black"! :)

Letzte Samstag Nacht gingen wir ins Kino um "Paranormal Activity 3" zu sehen. Einige Szenen des Films waren lustig und andere waren wirklich gruselig, ich habe mich sogar in einer Szene total erschreckt. Wir haben bemerkt, dass die meisten Szenen aus dem Trailer nicht im Film waren. ?!? Insgesamt war es kein schlechter Film. Ich kann es kaum erwaten, im naechsten Jahr die neuen Horrorfilme "The Devil Inside" und "The Woman in Black" anzuschauen. :)

About fashion and other 

Q: I see that you wear a nice mixture of heels n flats... which do you prefer?

Q: Any ideas of where you go to purchase low heel (preferably under 4in) shoes, wedges, booties or flats that are still chic and stylish?
A:
There are tons of stores or online shops available. You can find some low heels, flats or boots at Payless, Urbanog.com, Forever 21, Zara, Asos, Topshop, Amiclubwear, Gojane, Burlington, Zappos, Endless, T.j.Maxx or cheap stores at malls.

Q: If you could pick one shoe to wear for the rest of your life, which one of your shoes would you pick?
A: 
I would pick some flats because they are comfortable and I think I couldn't wear heels. They would kill me if I have to wear them for the rest of my life - my poor feet :O

Q: Where do you get all your Japanese stuff from?

Mostly from online shops like PinkyParadise, Ichibankao, Shoppingholics or Eyecandy Lens. Here in California they a have some stores where you can buy food, magazines and books or cosmetic from Japan.

A:
Fashion designer :)


Blogging

Q: How long have you been doing your blog and how many viewers have you had??
A: I started blogging in December 2009. I don't remember how much viewers or readers I had, but I had a few and it was growing by time and it continues to grow.

Q: What inspired you to start a blog?
A: Once I read a fashion magazine with a few fashion/lifestyle blogs listed in there, I checked them out on the internet and I was really impressed and inspired by them. Then I thought maybe some people are interested in my style and started a blog for fashion, fashion design, beauty and lifestyle.

Q: Who inspires you to blog posts?
A: Self-inspired.

Q: How did you make your blog known/famous ? Did it happen like that? What's your advice ?
A: I wouldn't say it's famous or successful. Blog the way you like and share your interests with your readers - show your personality. Leave your link on other sites and keep your blog updated. Readers will discover your blog by time and the most important thing is be friendly to your readers.

Q: How do keep your viewers interested and for them to follow??
A: I don't have a plan or strategy to keep my viewers interested. I think that's a good question for my readers.

Q: Do you check out blogs from the people that comment your blog and actually leave them a comment?
A: Yes. My readers are important to me. Everytime when someone left a nice comment I click on the link and look who actually wrote me. I only leave comments on a page when I really have something to say or when someone left a comment with a question.

Q: Do you mind to visit and follow me?
A: Of course I check out your blog after you left a comment, but I don't follow on request. I just follow blogs I really like.

Q: How did you manage to get sponsors for your blog? 
A: When you have luck, sponsors discover your blog or you can also write to sponsors and can ask for a sponsorship.

I'm back ♥

"Parlez-moi d'amour" by John Galliano
Candy from France and Milka chocolate with daim pieces


Hiiiii! So I'm finally back from the hiatus and ready to blog again! Thank you for being so patient! I hope you had a nice summer.  Now autumn has arrived it is time to get some cute and cozy sweaters, scarves, and boots - yay!

Anyways, in September I turned 22 years old and I received a wonderful package from my mom.
The package contained: a cute birthday card, perfume - "Parlez-moi d'amour" by John Galliano (smells incredibly goooood),  Milka chocolate with Daim pieces, candy from my favorite patisserie in France, some kitchen items, and other stuff. Also my husband and I went a little bit shopping for my birthday and he bought me some black pants and brown flats. Thaaaank you so much!

I'm still working on my Q&A post. So stay tuned for this post!
Have a nice Saturday!
