Black is the new black

Black is the new black and will always be. You already know about my passion for black and today I want to show you one of my favorite all-dressed-in-black outfits :) I really like the little golden accents, they make the look more elegant and classic and I feel so well-dressed with it! 

The coat

I bought the coat just a few weeks ago in Amsterdam, it's from Mango and the special thing about it is, it's a two-in-one piece - you can unzip the zipper and within seconds you'll have a short jacket instead of a coat! How cool is that?! I just had to buy it when I found out how alterable it is :) 

The necklace:

I bought the necklace just a few days after my return from Amsterdam when I was on my way to Krakow. We had an one hour stop in Warsaw and just the moment I stepped out of the money exchange office my eyes caught that little golden necklace in a shop window on the opposite site of the train station. I ran into that shop and bought it immediately (lucky me, it was the last one!) :) 

The tunic:

That was some kind of I-had-to-buy-it-cause-it-was-reduced thing. I strolled around the boring h&m sale last winter and found that tunic when I recognized there was a small hole in the seam, I thought I might ask if I can get it for even less money and finally I found a store assistant. She frowned and then said "ok, but you can't bring it back then". I didn't even tried the tunic on, I just paid for it and left the store. At home I tried it on for the very first time and what should I say? I loved it from the very beginning :)   

The pants: 

Well, you might remember that I'm not into wearing pants for so long now but I quickly recognized that it is very hard to find the perfect pair. I am not even sure if this is the right pair yet but they're very comfy, they're very skinny and in a deep black. And yes, they're from Primark. But I like them. 

The shoes:

Oh my, I bought them about two weeks ago when the first &other stories store had it's opening in Berlin. It was love at first sight! I love the cut-outs so much and I really feel as if they were just made for me :) You know, if I were a pair of shoes, I would be these!

coat: Mango // tunic: h&m // necklace: small boutique in Warsaw // pants: Primark // shoes: &other stories

I decided to tell a little story behind every piece of my outfit to make outfit posts less boring - I was wondering if you guys like it? Let me know! :) 

Wish you a great Walpurgisnacht and a lovely 1st of May tomorrow! 


Join me in death

Well, since I was a 13-year old girl I absolutely loved HIM. Ville Valo was my first love and I still think he's way too hot for this world :D I bought every CD, every magazine and everything else that contained something about HIM. My wall just looked like every other fangirl's wall - from top to bottom completely covered in pictures of Ville. I listened to their songs day in, day out. But then, a few years later, I think it was just a few months after the release of "Dark Light" I somehow lost my interest in HIM. I still liked them a lot but I wasn't addicted to their music like I was before. That's why I never noticed they still existed as a band and even released new albums. It was a cold day in winter when I was at work and my boss just changed the music and decided to play old HIM songs all night long, we had so much fun singing and dancing behind the bar and I was wondering why I ever gave up listening to HIM. From then on questions were spinning around my mind "what the fuck has happened to HIM and Ville Valo? Is he still alive? Do they still make music??" I just surfed the internet as I found the best information ever: they were about to release a new album AND they're touring around!!!!! I ordered three tickets in the pre-pre-sale (for me, my boss and Jakob) and luckily we got them (of course the concert was sold out within minutes).
Last Monday has been the day! I was so excited and just felt like 15 again, Jakob and I met my boss and some other fellow students in front of the Postbahnhof where we needed to queue for hours. Ok, not HOURS, but at least one hour. Immediately after entering I spent my first 28,50€ within seconds. 25€ for a HIM shirt and 3,50€ for my first beer. We had some more beers and suddenly the concert started, Maria, a fellow student of Jakob, and I decided to try getting in front row but the audience was like...shit. I thought they were there for a concert of a band they fucking love?? Mostly all of them were standing around, with their arms crossed and not willing to let us through. We, full of beer and adrenaline, ignored the fists in our backs and just made our way trough until we finally reached at least the third row. You might not believe it, but as boring the audience was, as brutal they were. One girl even bit me in the back! Stupid bitch, Ville is mine! Ville of course was hot as hell and the concert was nice though the audience was still not rocking at all. After the concert Maria and I managed to get a plectrum each! Oh my I was a lucky girl :D We just had one more beer there, then decided to leave for another drink somewhere else (of course we ended in the Zyankali Bar ^^) where Gülsün decided to join us and when my working mate decided to close the bar, we decided to leave for another drink at Clash. Afterwards we ate lots of disgusting french fries at Curry 36 and went finally home, in a shopping basket, lol. The sun was about to rise as we finally managed to get home, I guess I don't need to mention I didn't make it to my lessons the next day? ;) All in all it's been a great night and I AM SO IN LOVE WITH VILLE! Has anyone of you been there?!?!?!?!!


Where have I been?

So sorry for not posting in a long time! But lots of things kept me away from blogging, I will try to post more often in the next days as there are many things I want to share with you :) If you're following me on instagram (@kronjuwel), you already know that I've been to the hospital half the week :/ 
But now I am back home and will try to catch up for everything :) 

Have a lovely Sunday!



Omg finally another sunny day here in Berlin! I can't wait for spring to come, I'm so tired of all the snow, grey and dark days, and of course I'm totally tired of the fucking cold. Jakob and I just came back in from taking some pictures and the sun was so warm, I almost couldn't believe it. 
Unfortunately we had too little time as my parents will come for dinner this evening and I have to clean the flat before they'll arrive. So,  I just wanted to wish you a lovely sunny Sunday and hope you'll have a great evening as I'm sure I will have :) 


Small presents keep a friendship alive.

I guess, you all know that feeling caused by a small present you didn't expect, don't you? Unpacking it, giddy with excitement, finally knowing what it is and being fulfilled with gratefulness and overwhelmed by feelings for the other person, isn't that great? Also, I think the other way round it's pretty nice too, seeing your friend unpacking what you chose, knowing that it is just the right thing for him or her. Yeeeeah, that's satisfying too.

Well, to be honest, what I'm talking about hasn't been a small present- a few weeks before Gülsün's birthday in November I had the sudden inspiration that a trip together to somewhere in Europe would be great. As you know, I'm just a poor student and don't have that much money, so I had to base my decision on what would be the cheapest flight. But to tell you the truth, the cheapest flight was to somewhere I don't even remember anymore and didn't want to go to. So I chose the second cheapest flight and that has been Amsterdam! How cool is that!? So I spent a few days on texting Gülsün about her working times, of course not too obviously, and then I booked the flights. But oooh, from then on it still has been about three weeks until her birthday, I almost died on that sneakiness! But time flies fast,  so her birthday came and I could finally reveal my present :) I guess I don't need to mention that she was very excited about it ;)

Later that evening we found a very nice and cheap apartment with a roof-deck, located 10 minutes away from the center of Amsterdam, we contacted the landlord and got the confirmation about 15 minutes later. 

Full of anticipation we started our trip about two weeks ago, we had a great time together, the weather wasn't as good as we expected but at least we had some sunshine :) 

What was your greatest present to someone you really love? :)
