with a little help from Sarah

FRI-YAY! Another beauty post for all you lovely tiny LOC readers! I am such a happy clam to team up with Douglas this time, and to show you their new mobile phone App with which you can find the perfect make up products coordinated to your skin tone. It's all really easy, you just need their color card with this special QR code on it, and then you have to download the app. The whole process of scanning one's skin is explained in the app and really easy. I would just suggest you to do it with a second person, as it is quite hard to hold the color card onto your face and then scan everything with the other hand. I asked my lovely roommate Tobi and he did a really good job in helping me, and even found it was a cool idea, haha =) Also, pay attention to the lighting in your room, it could manipulate the result.

After scanning everything, you will get your personalized color code and there will be several products shown from different brands that would suit your type of skin. I have always been really lucky concerning my skin type, means, I never really had problems with it, so I gave it a try and tried out a completely new brand and foundation. I picked a new foundation called 'Lancôme teint idole ultra'. The only problem was, that the color code was too dark, so the shop girl told me to go for the lightest version available, as I have such a light skin tone. I now have no. 010 beige porcelaine and I am completely obsessed with it. First of all, this foundation smells amazing and it feels so good to apply it on your skin. I was a bit scared at first, because using make up can cause a dry skin but I do not think this one will. My face feels relaxed, refreshing and it looks pretty ;-)

I hope this little review was helpful for you, I would definitely recommend you to try out this color code, as it is really funny and if you are ready to try something new, go for it! Besides, I think I finally have some sort of routine in my daily life now. It took quite a while, but I am slowly getting used to being at uni all day long and blogging besides. Just hope it stays like that =) A great weekend to all of you! xx

Hello everybody! I hope you all had a great weekend, enough time to relax and rest and that you are now ready for a new week! Let's start with something refreshing, like a little bit of beauty!
Since I just cut my hair again, and people always ask me about my hair care routine, I decided to write a post about it. If you follow tiny LOC blog for a while now, you might know that I had quite long hair until I decided to cut them in January. Then I decided to get back to the roots and get my bangs again, but quickly became bored of it, so I am trying to grow them out, which probably takes ages. Two weeks ago I decided to cut my whole hair again, this time it's definitely a change that can be seen. I've never had this short hair, but I absolutely love how versatile it is. I still laugh when I am trying to make a bun or special hairdo as it won't proper work out =) Here's a list of my favorite products that I am currently using:

Do you know that feeling, when certain moments feel like a dream? When I look at the pictures we shot this summer in Sweden, it feels like a dream that Ilived there for a few weeks, it's a little surreal. If you followed my little Swedish journey through summer, you might as well know that I have teamed up with lovely Emma, who is an amazing young photographer from Gothenburg. We shot these on my last day before I went to Oslo. She recently told me that she joined a photography exhibition in Sweden, which takes place in Kungsbacka (20-31 October), Varberg (3-14 November) and Halmstad! It's at a school called 'Medborgarskolan' and open on the weekdays - you also don't have to pay any entrance fee! Just wanted to share this with my Swedish readers, I hope you're still interested in tiny LOC blog even though I'm not 'living' there anymore, because I think Emma's work is beyond amazing and I would love to come myself, but it is too far away and I've got a pretty tight schedule here in Berlin! If anyone of you is there, pleeease instagram and tell me about it, and don't forget to use the hashtag #emmagrannfotografi =)

Besides that I'd love to be back in Sweden right now, I am enjoying fall season to its fullest! I have just finished another coat and I am super duper excited to wear it and take pictures for you! I hope you are still interested in my designs, it's all taking ages right now as I am working on so many things at once, but I will make sure to update you every once in a while! I am now off to a uni event, wishing you a happy Thursday, thanks for reading! xx

My instagram feed is all over pictures of people who hate monday(s), quotes, which explain why monday(s) suck, but I personally love Mondays. Not just because I've got Monday off (every single week, eeek), but because I've always loved them, as they stand for a new beginning. There's a whole week, there are seven full days, where you can discover new things, start something new, try something new, just do something you've never done before and make your life even more fun! I've got a full to do list for this week and I can't wait to start! First I'll finish my coat that I am dying to show you, as it's so elegant and sophisticated, and then do some workout, work on the blog, work for uni, the usual ;-) What are your plans for the week? It's really weird, but I told my mum yesterday, that I am really settling down, as in, I love what I do and most of the time, I'm not saying everytime, but most of the time I don't need to motivate myself to do something, because it's all fun and, I pretty much love my job and the studies I chose. Finally=) I hope you all had an amazing weekend, just like me, and you're more than happy that Monday arrived, to get yet another fresh start and create something exciting!

I've been wearing black a lot lately, but wanted to change this by creating a black, white and green look with some of my new goodies. This vest was on Sale at Mango and I've always wanted one of these! It's my go-to piece this fall, it's so chic but can be styled pretty edgy as well! Of course there's my fav. jumper of all time, the turtleneck in white, which I couldn't imagine living without, as it's the most comfortable garment you can wear! It's funny how I am super interested in clothing history thanks to uni, cause people have been wearing turtlenecks since the 15th century and there was even a time where they used it in violation of the shirt and tie. Fashion history fun fact no. 1! 
Paired with green snake printed shorts and a big bag I am ready for another day at work/uni, wishing you a happy Monday! xx

A beauty post ... again? I've stocked up my lipsticks and had to show you this gorgeous little one from MAC asap. As I am really intro bright lipsticks in fall and winter time, I got myself 'flat out fabulous' already a few weeks ago. This color is simply magical! It's really bright and pink-ish, and that's exactly what I needed! Recently, I love to wear black all the time, but  it would be boring without a pop of color added to my outfits by a nice lipstick! I hope it doesn't get boring for you guys, my lipstick obsession has gotten quite obvious if you follow me for a while, but I am always trying to take different pictures for my beauty posts! This time I played with this amazingly colorful jumper I got from H&M and some other beauty products such as the perfect nailpolish for fall from Essie and a new amazing mascara from Maybelline! While editing the pictures I thought they'd look a bit 80s and have this oldschool touch, and I absolutely love it! They are really different to my usual beauty shots, but I'm cool with that =) hope you like them as well! 

I am currently all over uni as it's a super busy week and I barely have time to sleep, work on the blog or have free time, but as I told you, I had time to cut my hair! Whoop! It's like the last time I cut my hair, I get all inspired by this new length! Already thinking about outfits that make my hair even more outstanding, haha! It's still a bit weird cause I've never had such short hair, but I love it, both curly and straight! You'll see even better pictures in the following posts! Besides that, I am planning to have a calm and creative weekend, working on LOC, sewing and stuffing myself silly at Suicide Sue! Oh, I'll also be at the Backroom Sale at Wood Wood Berlin, if anyone wants to join? Happy Thursday! xx

Apparently, fall hit town and brought cold temperatures - yay! I really don't mind the weather right now, as I love fall season! Everything's pretty and you can dress up, layer, wear bright colors to brighten up the day, everything's just perfect! Best thing about fall this year, are definitely capes - all kinds of! I've always loved them as you look so chic and feel so cosy while wearing them! This camel colored cape is one of my favorites as it goes with everything and looks really sophisticated! This year camel, brown and earthy tones are all the rage, so I think I'm good to go with this garment! Already thinking about getting a mohair camel jumper, have you already stocked up your wardrobe with this years fall color?  

I have been super busy these past few days; I did loads of stuff, worked so hard and almost non stop, and rewarded myself with a new haircut! Have you seen my short hair yet? I already posted it on Instagram, but I'll make a special hair care post within the next few weeks - stay tuned! Besides working and studying, and working and studying, I had enough time to get my hands on the Karl Daily which you can get in all the Chanel or Karl Lagerfeld stores in the city! I've always been quite into Karl and all his designs, as well as I am one of the girls that simply think he's a genious, but I was a bit skeptical about his new project - a newspaper. I read it on the bus on my way to work and although the layout  could be a bit more inspiring, the content is really cool. From a day in the life of king karl to the mystery of him wearing sunnies all day long, it's all written pretty charming and ironic. I would definitely recommend it, especially cause it's for free ;-) Have a great day guys! xx

and lately, I'm beginning to find, that I should be the one behind the wheels        (Incubus)

Today's a holiday in Germany, that's why my day started with sleeping a little longer, having delicous breakfast and then going for a run in the morning sun! Perfect as I've got a busy weekend ahead! I will start working on LOCDesigns today, then head off to my 'other workplace' and tomorrow there'll be another amazing shooting day with lovely Frank from spectre photo! I sooo can't wait to see the results from Wednesday and of course prepare outfits for tomorrow!  I already showed you a little preview on Instagram! One of my friends recently said to me that it's crazy what's going on in my life right now, and although this made me blush, I can't get over the fact that I always want more. No material needs, but sometimes I feel like I haven't done anything at the age of twenty-one. And when this thought comes up, I like to have a holiday, just like today, and remind myself on what I want to achieve and that I have to work hard, and remind myself, again, 'that I should be the one behind the wheels'. There's no one who's going to do all these things for me, to achieve my dreams and goals for me. I have to do it on my own, and it's actually a lot of fun! To break it down for you, I should not compare myself to others, especially not if they are my age and seem to have achieved so much more than me. Nope. I am enough, and I have enough. I'm gonna do it my way, which might take a little longer, but it will be fine in the end. end of story.

After my shoot with Frank on Wednesday I was absolutely knackered and just crawled into my bed and slept for as long as I could, which wasn't that long unfortunately, as I had uni Thursday morning 8am. But oh well, I even managed this and then headed over to Friedrichshain with my girl Linda to shoot this look for you! THIS jacket is my everything, really! I absolutely love how warm it is and how it makes me and my clothes look cool and edgy, and a little less girly =) Paired it with a little black dress, wore a bun and was ready to shoot in this old house full of graffiti. I know, we've all seen this before ..  but I love a little graffiti in my pictures and Berlin has lots to offer! Have a great weekend guys, see you Monday, but don't forget to follow me on my social media to catch up what I'm doing! xx

CAN I TAKE YOU HIGHER? I can't even sit still on my chair right now, as I am so excited and motivated! Nothing reeeeally important happened, it's just that I had a weird day at uni yesterday, and I wasn't really in the mood to work, blog, whatever, until I talked to my mum while working on my latest to do list aka business plan. Whenever there was enough time in between uni and work I did some sketching and thought about this big word called 'change' a lot these past few days and weeks, and I think I am ready to take a massive step into a certain direction. So I am just gonna risk everything, change a few things in my life, probably even change myself a little bit, and tell you guys, that I am working on my very first collection. Eeeek! I know, it might not sound as interesting and funny for you, as it does for me, but this is a big step for me. I I've been thinking about my own collection for ages now and was always scared, but I kinda feel like I am finally in the right place to do it. I won't say more, as it should still be a surprise for you guys, but please be gentle with me, as I am working so hard right now, tiny LOC blog takes the second place.

But still, second doesn't mean I'm not gonna blog for ages now, as I absolutely love blogging. It's like I am addicted, whenever I don't blog for about three days, I feel weird. So here's a new outfit post with my selfmade burgundy colored cape that I still adore, my docs and my latest investment: a veiled beanie! I got it via Asos, as I desperately wanted one after seeing them on the runway of Jil Sander. I lost my heart for all kinds of headgears, and this veiled beanie got me higher! I hope you're all doing fine, tell me what you think about the veiled beanie in the comment section! :) Happy Humpday! xx
