Best of me



Long time no see, right? Actually this is meant to be just a quick short post. I still don't really feel like blogging on here, instead I started a second tumblr for my outfit stuff. I just don't feel like writing, what I have done during the day or about what I'm wearing. I just think reading 'I like the combination' over and over again, gets boring quiet quick. On my tumblr however I'm only posting pictures of what I have worn. The pictures aren't always the best as well. It's more of a blog and outfit diary for myself, so I either take them with my ipod/phone or my camera.


I just thought I tell you about it. For all those who still want to know what I'm wearing. I tried to get bloglovin on it, but I haven't worked that out yet.

You're the better half of me

You Me At Six - Wild Ones

I thought I should write another short update. It's not about me blogging here or anything, but if you want to stick around, know what I'm doing, I thought I should inform you that I changed my tumblr url and twitter and instagram. You can find my tumblr now under sinnertobesaint.tumblr.com instead of oldcaledonia.tumblr.com, also sinnertobesaint is now my twitter as well as instagram.

Also I had a few outfits posts left, which I had scheduled but never posted. I posted them on tumblr and if you click on the pictures you can see where I got what. I had to split them, because it was like 20 outfits left. So part one here and part two here.

See you soon,

Paying for love - Update

Panic! At The Disco - But It's Better When We Do
 photo 0682f3f2-3c4f-4aa0-ad31-97bd4b3735c8_zps259788b7.jpg

I spend the last two days thinking a lot about this blog (don't know is that's a good thing or not ). And I decided not to deleted it. I feel like this blog is a part of me, if that doesn't sound too weird. What I mean is that I've been blogging for four years and I think I would just miss something if I would stop and also I don't really want to stop. In fact, I actually want to improve this blog and I think one of the most important things for me to do is letting people know that I'm blogging. I always kept it kind of a secret, never really told the people around me that I'm actually blogging. And I think the whole time I was just afraid that people would make fun of me and the blog and the whole blogging thing. But I know that I have changed over the last year and I'm much more confident, than I was before. And honestly, I'm proud of the followers I have and that I've been blogging for four years, because usually my attention towards things shifts rather easily and I'm not really good at maintaining things on a regular basis.

However I didn't feel good about some old posts and I wasn't exactly sure what to do about them, but this morning I finally decided to delete them. This blog is about my personal style and I should feel comfortable with the posts on it, because it represents me. And over those four years I've changed quite a lot and I think that those posts don't really represent me anymore. So, to make me feel a lot better about the blog, I just thought it would be best to get rid of them.

Anyhow, I decided to pause this blog for sometime. I thought until I'm back home, which means about two weeks maybe longer. I will still post on Instagram, Tumblr and twitter. I will also leave this blog as it is, so in case you want to have a look through old posts, you still can. I just think that I need to work on a new concept for this blog. One I feel comfortable with and don't ask myself the whole time what others would do. It's my blog and I want to do things my way, even though, I might not know what 'my way' is right now. But I hope I will soon.

I'd also would like to use this opportunity to say thank you to everyone reading this blog, follower or not.

(That sounded a bit more dramatic than I intended. I mean I'll be back in a month or two)

You take it further than I ever can

Bastille - Oblivion

Lately I have been quite frustrated, it's just quiet a few things didn't work out the way I wanted them too and I also started to question some things. One of these things is this blog. I don't really see it going anywhere right now, what really frustrates me. I know I should be happy about the lovely followers I have, but lately I feel like I don't appreciate them as much as I should. And honestly I feel bad about it, because this blog was meant to be about what I'm wearing and it shouldn't depend on the number of followers. It's just that I didn't feel good about blogging lately, because I cared more about the comments and views, than anything else. And especially today, I started to think about deleting this blog or taking a break, to get back to enjoy blogging and focusing on the content and not the numbers. I think about starting all over again. And I don't know, whether I want to do this with a new blog or keep this one, or if I even will blog again.

Like you can see I'm not sure about a lot of things and I am not even sure if this is just a mood, caused by me being frustrated with so many other things. I think I'll try to blog for at least this month and see how I'm feeling about it all.

Today was the last day to finish my final project. I already finished putting it up yesterday and all I had to do today was print some stuff and now I have to come in tomorrow for my Assessment, well in case something goes wrong or something is missing. But I guess that means I'll go back to my proper blogging again. The shirt is one of my new ones from Asos, I'm not really sure whether I already blogged about it or not. I'm pretty sure I had it in my haul, but I don't know if I had it in an outfit. Anyway, I really love this shirt and I can't stop wearing it, well next to the stripped one!

Just a quick post of an outfit I will wear for like half an hour! Like I mentioned before we are currently painting the studio at uni, so what I'm wearing is dirty and doesn't belong here, but today I actually need to go food shopping so I thought I get dressed properly and post it, even though I'm only wearing it for half an hour. I'm really annoyed that we paint the studio right now, because I want to wear my air max and my usual shoes, but I can't.

Also I'd like to mention that these pictures were taken last week and my hair is actually green now, well bits of it. I'm still not sure, whether I really like it or not. I mean I don't hate it, I can life with it, but I don't know yet, if I will do it again. I posted a picture of it on tumblr and also you can see a better pictures of my air max.

Just a quick outfit post of what I'm wearing today. I thought about whether I should post it or not, because I basically just wore it to quickly get some food, but I decided to post it to show you my new shoes! After posting my trainers post, I went on ebay and found these. I had actually planed on buying new ones, next month. But these were only 30 quid and barely used and they are purple, so I just had to buy them. I'm totally in love with them! They are really comfy and so lovely to walk in. I just wore them for let's say half an hour, but I'm totally in love with them!

I know I said in my last post, that I would probably post like usual again, but we're going to paint the studio next week, which means I won't wear anything worth showing here, so I'll try to prepare few inspiration posts and there might be a proper outfit posts, but I can't promise anything!

Lately I'm totally into usual shirts instead of my collar shirts. I feel like what I'm wearing has changed so much since last year. I blame it on the fact that I found jeans, which actually fit perfectly! It makes it so much easier in the morning, if you ask me. Now I'm pulling on my jeans and a shirt, instead of wondering ages, which shirt is long enough to wear with leggings or should I wear a skirt/dress instead. I feel like I save so much time! But also I feel like I'm blogging not that much like I did before, because now I'm wearing shirt and jeans and I just don't really feel like taking pictures of it, because it's nothing special really. But oh well! Loving my jeans anyway!

I'm sorry for the lack of outfits lately, but I worked on my final project for Uni and the weather wasn't really playing along to my prepared outfit pictures. Obviously I wasn't was optimistic as I should have been. Anyway, I finished the last bits for my exhibition today and don't really have to worry about it now, until it comes to putting it all up. That will be a hell lot of fun (note the sarcasm.) That means that I'll try and get to my usual blogging again.

So this is the haul to the online shopping I've done, which I mentioned in this post. Next to two new piercings, I also bought a nail polish (review) and this two shirts from Asos. I'm totally in love with them! I also bought the jumper from Homesick Apparel off Depop!

I bought a few more things, which haven't arrived yet or I can't get because of my current living situation. I ranted about it on Tumblr and don't want to rant again here for click here if you want to read it!

Here you can see my number one item on my wishlist, a pair of trainers. I would prefer the black Nike's of course, but honestly I don't see the point in spending 50+ quid on them. I know that you can get look-a-likes at Primark right and I tried them on today, but they just didn't look right.

Tip: Might be worth to check their own sites and not Asos, 'cause they might be cheaper.
