Considering this is actually the entrance to work's car park, I think I've done a pretty good job of finding the vague dark green location I was looking for in order to photograph this amazing dress from Fashion Union. I've been a bit unfaithful to my usual colour palette of blues with burgundy this season, but I think it'll be coming back with a vengeance as the days get warmer and I have access to my entire wardrobe - miss u babe xoxo. This dress speaks for itself (anyone else think it's got some William Morris vibes? I definitely thought of WM fangirl Jazmine straight away!), so I didn't want to introduce any other colours and instead stuck with my trusty Missguided boots, favourite necklace and a nude lip. If you want to get this dress as well (which they also sell in pink) I'd recommend sizing up if you're in between sizes; I know I haven't been to the gym for a while, but it's not completely down to all that german beer!

Following on my last post's chat about being more personal, this week's been a bit of a mixed bag. Work launched its new tv commercial in P1 which meant lots of bloggers were around and there was a an amazing mid-week party, as well as finally trying out Burger House (which I cannot recommend enough oh my god), but it also meant saying goodbye to one of the closest friends I've made here. Cue, of course, checking how many days I've got left in Munich and several stressed whatsapps and skypes about how I'll be unemployed forever etc. In order to put my life in perspective, today's goals are to send out a few applications while letting my weekly hair mask does its thing, then head out to Olympiapark as I've heard talk of pedalos...

And, due to popular request (i.e. Jazmine and Amy asked for it), here is my lol face - enjoy!

You may think pancakes are enough fun for one day, but in Bavaria they take Shrove Tuesday to a whole new level. Carnival is a concept they practice a load more on the continent, and it's more of a universal celebration than Notting Hill, which becomes more of an excuse to drink at midday. It started last Thursday with the whole of the champagneria's clientele wearing red noses and face paint while we looked on bemused over our wine glasses, but is mainly, from what I can tell, concentrated on Shrove Tuesday and Ash Wednesday. My department were challenged to dress up yesterday, but with thoughts of what toppings to add to my pancakes later that day I clean forgot. My other better prepared and less distracted colleagues came in a wide array of costumes, and I took the opportunity to steal Charlee's cat ears. I know Michelle's a firm fan of them, but I'd personally never been sold on these cat ear headbands until slipping this pair on, and now I'm trying to work out quite how acceptable it would be to wear this accessory on the train to work (going by some of my fellow commuters' looks as I run to catch the train in my heeled boots, I'm going to guess that wouldn't go down too well in Munich...).

Life in Munich has been a lot of fun recently, and although I tend to write a lot about what I've been up to that day, I came to the realisation (when drunk, obviously) that I hardly ever talk about anything that personal on here. This isn't a promise to go through the various changings of my mind in a cathartic dissertation every time I take photos of some shoes, but I know that I enjoy reading about others' lives, and that's certainly what got me into blogging in the first place. So whether it's me having a chat about how I deal with winter skin (and I appear to have very nearly hidden the eczema on my neck in most of these photos - hooray!) or how I found moving to another country, I will try to share something of a little more depth than how much I like to wear cat ears. But I really do like to wear cat ears.

I feel unique, not yet complete.

Now, if there's something I like to wear, it's a stripy t-shirt. You may have noticed my Aubin and Wills number cropping up a fair few times, and I nabbed a cheap H+M one when they were on offer last year, so I think I've proved that I wear them enough to invest in another (or head to bretons anonymous). When it comes to stripes, Petit Bateau know what they're doing, and I'd always wanted one of their marinières (and yellow rain coats, but we'll save that for another day) to finish off my collection, but they're pretty pricey. When I saw they had a store in Munich, I made the mistake of heading in during the January sales, and ended up making a rather rash purchase upon seeing the 50% off signs, but I'd argue that it happens to the best of us. I'm generally a pretty thrifty shopper, and stick to googling for voucher codes when buying online, or, my personal favourite, rummaging through the shelves of charity shops, but every once in a while it's nice to treat yourself to something a little more luxe. This Petit Bateau marinière (posh word for stripy top) is certainly a lot thicker than the H+M one, and is so soft inside that you can tell they make a lot of clothes for children and babies. But enough of me trying to justify this purchase, we all know it's completely down to it having a pocket.
