Because these first spring days are usually the most exciting, and I take a walk in the forest, and it gives me an indispensable taste of freedom. And we run, we run away, to a place in our bright imagination, to the ocean, the woods and the sun while wearing dresses that sway in the wind. And my mind is breathing and my soul is jumping. And we are laughing and I am gasping for air, and I fall on the ground and I keep laying very peaceful, because I enjoy looking at our huge world.
I am wearing a hat from dorothy perkins and a dress from primark
Thanks to my crazy, little sister for snapping these pictures ;-)

The Patient Gardener by Visiondivision
Swedish architects and a group of students designed a structure consisting of ten japanese cherry trees which is the main building material for the construction of a two-story retreat. It is growing in Milan and it will take 100 years to grow.
Today I have been to... Australia!
Oh how I love google maps, it captures the world so beautifully, and we are all able to see it.
The coolest beauty shots I have ever seen.

shirt c/o sheinside, jacket primark, shorts h&m
It's like I haven't blogged for ages. In the meantime, there hasn't changed a lot. We had our first spring day(s) -this is still a winter outfit though-, I performed twice for the school play (still have a last performance coming up) and I got this beautiful shirt in my mail box. Next up: test week, but afterwards I'm heading to beautiful Italy!

Big news! I applied for a foundation diploma in arts and design at UCA Maidstone. Yes yes yes. Maidstone is a town in Kent, England (and only 50 minutes away from London). If everything goes according to plan, I will be studying there next year. I will explore many areas of art and design and I will be living on my own in another country, how exciting!
I needed to show a portfolio, so during my break I put together a website et voil�, you can check it out here if you want! Tell me what you think. x

Hey you there! This is something important for all of you, so listen up. First of all, you should ask yourself the question: how many personal care products do you use daily? From shampoo to hand cream to deodorant to mascara to toothpaste...
Are you aware of the fact that all these products are full of harmful chemicals? Maybe you think something like: well if it's for sale at a drugstore, it must be safe. NOPE. Do you know cosmetics companies may use almost any ingredient or raw material? Even if studies have linked these chemicals to potential health effects including cancer and hormone disruption.
Now, watch this short video.
If you have some more time, you should definitely watch this video too, you will immediately understand the whole problem.
I don't know what's worse.. all these toxic chemicals in our products or the fact that we are ignorant and that the government and the cosmetics companies don't do anything about it (or at least not much)
Now I know this, I want to get rid of all the harmful products that I use. It really isn't that easy to find safe products in stores though. But you should definitely check out the great website Skin Deep. It is an online safety guide for cosmetics and personal care products to help people find safer products.
You should do some research too. Read these tips for safer products, print out this wallet guide, stop believing the product advertising, start reading the backside of the package, the ingredients list and buy safe(r) products!
PS: Is this the first time that you hear about it or do you already use organic products?
PPS: Tell your friends, your family, blog about it! (btw, you may even copy-paste this post)
