Book Review: Calendar Girl

Hi guys,

Für einmal beginne ich auf deutsch, den es geht um ein Buch welches heute in der Übersetzung erscheint. Es geht um die Buchreihe Calendar Girl von Audrey Carlan, genauer gesagt um den ersten Band " verführt - Januar Februar März ". Passend zum wunderschönen Buchcover gibt es zwei Nagellacke von Anny die in den Farbtöne des Einbands gehalten sind.

Die Reihe handelt von Mia, einer jungen Frau mit Geldschulden welche keinen anderen Ausweg mehr sieht als bei ihrer Tante ein Jahr als Escort Girl zu arbeiten. Jeden Monat wird sie bei einem anderen Kunden wohnen, verschiedene Aufgaben haben und so genügend Geld zu verdienen um dem Wahnsinn in ihrem Leben ein Ende zu setzen. Im ersten Band werden die Geschichten der ersten drei Monate erzählt, ingesamt gibt es vier Bücher welche jeweils ein Vierteljahr beschreiben.

Die Idee hinter der Geschichte hörte sich unheimlich interessant an, die einzelnen Monate sind abwechslungsreich und spannend geschrieben. Leider wirken die Charaktere schwer greifbar, Aussagen sind teilweise gegensätzlich und man kann nur schwer mitfühlen warum gewisse Entscheidungen getroffen werden. Ob es an der deutschen Übersetzung oder der Schreibweise generell liegt, manche derbe Wörter scheinen fehl am platz zu sein und wirken eher belustigend als ernstzunehmend. Das Buch ist ein erotischer Liebesroman, die expliziten Szene wirken teilweise langweilig und werden sehr ähnlich beschrieben so dass die Spannung schnell abnimmt.

Grundsätzlich würde ich das Buch als lockeren Sommerroman durchaus empfehlen, solange man kein literarisches Meisterwerk oder eine tiefgründige Erfahrung erwartet. Die weiteren Bände werden im Laufe des Jahres veröffentlicht und es entsteht durchaus der Wunsch zu wissen wie es weitergeht.

Das Buch erscheint heute, 27.06.16, auf Deutsch und ist im Buchhandel sowie online auf Ein Jahr voller Leidenschaft erhältlich.

The book Calendar Girl is released today in Germany, because I talk about the german version today I won`t do an english version. If you would be interested to read this post in english, please write in the comments.

Rise up and finally breathe light

Hi guys,

Last week we talked about Festivals, today its about what I wore.
I have some pieces I wear on every Festival, not exactly the same way but for example my harness shorts are always with me.
Let`s be honest, european Festival aren`t Coachella and things can get dirty, muddy and wet. This means that white is a no go, same goes with lace cause its hard to clean. But what to wear if you still want to be stylish? Oversized dresses! This one is from Spell and a XL, the fit is really loose but also extremly comfy. I didnt had to worry about my Outfit for a second, I knew that everything was were it was supposed to be. Oh and it was a showstopper, I got asked so many times where its from.

- be aware that your outfit can get wet, dirty or damaged

- choose something comfortable that will stay in place on its own

- choose simple jewellery and soft materials so you won`t hurt yourself in the crowd

-stay true to yourself and don`t wear a Shirt and shorts just because everyone else does if its not what you really want to wear

- good shoes are everything, I love my Dr.Martens

- stay away from light colors and delicate fabrics

Hell is so close to heaven

Hi guys,

I didn`t felt like writing the past few days. Im confused, relieved and sad at the same time, one moment I`m a mess and ten minutes later I feel like the world is mine. I want to have it all, to stay with old things and celebrate the new ones. The feeling after a big decision, when you`re not sure if it was the only right way to go or if you just destroyed your future. Even though I strongly believe that everything will turn out right, it is hard to get there. Harder than I expected, without a finish line.

All I want is to be happy, whatever it takes

Festival Review: Rock im Park 2016

Hi guys,

You may have heard about Rock am Ring, the big German Festival that was cancelled on the last day because of heavy rain and thunderstorms. More than 80 people were injured, more than 10 heavily.
I was at the twin Festival, Rock im Park. The weather changed between sunshine and nearly 30 degrees celcius and heavy rain in seconds, but we were safe and I had the best time on a Festival ever!

I went with a group I met last year, but we grew instantly and at the end we were a big group out of small ones and counted at least 30-40 people. Happily it didn`t rain during my favorite bands, my Highlights were:
Bring me the Horizon, Biffy Clyro, Of Mice and Men, Panic! at the Disco and Bullet for my Valentine. Just realised this reads itself like an Emo Line-Up, but its crazy to see how they all grew up and the emo people are still there but they are adults now too and look completly different.
If you ever have the chance to see Biffy or Panic live, take it! They are both absolutely amazing.
I loved the vibe, even if it wasn`t organised that well this year. It felt like all the nice stuff was RaR only, they got a Supermarket, a special shower area and a fairy wheel. Lasty year there were more different type of food and not just the same one 3-5 times.

A big thank you to all the lovely people I met, I will tell you some storys in my next posts. You truly made this weekend unforgettable <3 p="">










Love,
Faye

My head`s a fucking carnival

Hi guys,

Im back! This week has been crazy, I`ve been at Rock im Park and met some truly beautiful people. I had one hell of a time, would definately say it was the best Festival experience I had since I started. As you may have heard the twin Festival Rock am Ring had to be cancelled because of heavy rain and thunderstorms, but we were all fine. I can only recommend to at least once go to a Festival on your own, I camped with some people I met last year but spend most of the time on the venue itself on my own and made new friends really fast, so actually I never was alone. Its so hard to get back into real life at the moment, I can still feel the sparkles the last weekend gave me and just want to listen to music or dance all day. I will try to do more for this blog this summer after school is finished, can promise you that I will be on the road again quite often.

Hope you`re ok and wish you an amazing weekend!

If you believe in magic, don`t be afraid to use it

Hi guys,

The forest is a magical place. Like the sea, its natures perfection of different species living together, we are only allowed to enter and take a look.
Sadly not everyone treats this little world with respect
and love, after a party you can find tons of garbage in the middle of the woods or at a beach, even if it would be so easy to just take it with us once we leave. We choose this place for a reason, why dont we give our best to keep it the way we like it the most?

I will be at Rock im Park thursday to monday, so it may will get a little silent on my social media channels but I try to write another post for friday. If you want to see as many Pictures as possible, make sure to follow me on Instagram ( @sweetaloevera ) and on Snapchat ( @badaloevera ).

Searching for a way to escape the madness

Hi guys,

The last bunch of photos we shot in Amsterdam a few weeks ago!

Its all about feeling comfortable, flares paired with knit and some nice accessories. I wore this for a short boat trip on the canals and later for my flight home, I actually love to wear leggings or loose
pants in the plane so I can sort my legs out ( lets be honest, these seats aren`t made for tall people ).

We wanted to shoot in quiet street but ended up in a really busy one, all the tourists came by, watched us or made comments even if two seconds earlier there was nobody there.
