Liebster Blog Award

Well, now there's one more instance where I really cannot duck away from writing in Hungarian. I got an award from Szilvi - one which this little community of Hungarian beauty bloggers routinely pass around each other, since it's at the same a great way to get to know each other, and to excercise the kind of exhibitionism we all started blogging for.
Szilvitől kaptam egy díjat, ami a kis bloggerközösségünkben mindig ide-oda vándorol, én még sosem kaptam meg. Itt lenne az ideje magyarul írni? Többet a divatról és kevesebbet a zenéről? Nah. Arra ott vannak mások.

Birthdays, Trips, Dinners

This Sunday was my birthday - as it is with adulthood, half of it was chores and only half the party. The party mainly being a visit to Szentendre and an avantgarde exhibition within. Sounds sappy, but the real gift is still spending time with my friends. Then of course, my family awaited me home with dinner and yet more gifts. Behold, below.

Fall 2015 Wishlist

My wishlists in the autumn (notice the abrupt switch to British English when I no longer need a catchy title?) are always much more nebulous than the spring ones. That's not because autumn is my favourite season - that would be summer, though this one comes as second. In fact, it probably goes without saying that it's because I like the trends of and clothes of this particular time of the year a whole lot better. Jewel tones and actual layers and dark lipstick and black, lots of black, is what I live for. (No, but my fashion self really does.)
It's easy to incorporate current trends into your wardrobe when you only have to look at which of them are available in black. (No, I'm not becoming a health goth, I have standards.) I like to flatter myself thinking I have my own style, but I don't actually know whether that's really true. Well, not that I have the sort of disposable income to buy into all the new trends, so I might be better off with sticking to a stable wardrobe. But that doesn't mean there aren't things I want, and my birthday's also in two weeks. (So these are the imaginary gifts.)

Autumn Playlist II

Here is everyone's long-awaited sensible weather - a temperature around 20 degrees, wind and sunshine and rain and scattered, fluffy clouds. I do like autumn as well as anyone (even if my favourite is still the summer warm), if not for else, then for the opportunity to dress in more than my shortest shorts and a breezy crop top. In other words, being able to wear my leather jacket.
Since I still lack a rain-proof pair of footwear, I cannot wholeheartedly look forward to now regularly having to step out of my house and go places. Yeah, autumn also means the start of school, which I regrettably have to say, I did not want to start yet. Every summer, I start out with loads of things to do, to paint, to learn, and in the end, do precious few of them. There's never enough time for my hobbies and there never will be, something I might as well just accept.

So, to lift the mood a bit, and also because it's a tradition of mine by now, here is a playlist for autumn, loaded with melodeath and progressive death metal.

Saturday Inspiration #16

And, the series is back! Somehow, it's only during semi-busy schooltime I actually feel in the mood for posts like this. So, here it is, the first one of this autumn.

Album Reviews: August

It's time for the next album review post. I didn't expect much of the August batch of releases, and it didn't deliver much, but I kind of feel like I'm still disappointed. But I was also in the mood to write negative reviews, so bad ones are happily included as well. On the other hand, September still promises to be awesome, and at least this way I could catch up on a few interesting records I missed.
