Partyin’ Partyin’ Yeah!

Zara dress //  Promod bag // Boo shoes // Twice as Nice earrings // H&M Tights

I’ve been pondering about what to write about today for a few minutes now. Things have come across my misty brain, silly subjects mainly, like a post about my morning ritual. Only that, I don’t wear make-up, so that post would be quite the short one. On the other hand, a lot of readers like short posts as they are not here to read me chattering. Then I thought to write about the most epic, awesome, stupidest-thing-to-do-when-you-have-no-money thing that I did last weekend. Unfortunately for you, I don’t want to jinx it and besides, it’s way to fun to tease you guys by saying I did something awesome (or at least in my mind it is) and then not tell you what it is. Just because I can. Keanu would approve me doing what I want. 

Okay, I think that was enough dialectical talk for today. I think my philosophy exam is going to be awesome (it’s about having a dialectal point of view, you see), just like that awesome thing I did but will not tell you about. Okay okay, I’m lame, I know. But I’m incredibly afraid of jinxing it, as it is something I’ve been looking forward to so much since the last time I did it. Giving away a teaser doesn’t count for jinxing it, now does it?
Let’s finally have a quick word about this outfit. Yes, this dress is shorter than my average ones. It’s also something I don’t usually wear as it is more of a sexy one, and cannot be put under the category ‘college appropriate’ at all. But I just love the way it suits me, even though I’m completely curve less. The green hue is simply perfect. And yes, it does remind me a lot of the color of our Christmas tree right now, but its color matches my hair in a way I cannot help but love. Those two things are entirely unrelated. Okay, so why did I wear it? Because it’s K’s favorite and we had had a little fight last week and I wanted to make up for my crazy, woman-with-hormones behavior. And maybe because he gets extra sweet and does the dishes for me when I wear this. Just maybe.

    Why don't you wear makeup?

    • 27 December 2012 / 16:55

      Well noticed. There are a few reasons why I never use make-up.

      I don't wear it because I am allergic to a component used in many everyday cosmetics. I found that I can actually use a lot of products of the more expensive brands like Guerlain and special powders and mascara sold at pharmacies. Like I said, those products are often more expensive than what I'd like to spend on make-up and as I'm a non-working student this is just not doable for me. Another reason why I shy away from using products is because as a girl with fair skin, light lashes, lighter eyebrows and freckles, I find it generally hard to find fitting make-up. Ever tried finding that perfect mascara, that you are NOT allergic too and that will not make you look like a total bimbo? Yeah, I find it not that easy! Thirdly, I am very sensitive to Eye infections. I modeled for a friends make-up exams (she studied bio-aesthetics in high school) and every single time the eye make-up resulted in a visit to my optician (who's also a certified eye doctor). No fun, really.
      And lastly, I honestly don't feel a need to wear make-up. After noticing my skin and eyes did not handle make-up well, I stopped trying and never used it anymore.

      I can in all honesty say that I have never, by anyone in my (offline) life, been pressured to use it nor have I ever been laughed at for my skins condition. Now, I can't help but wonder if this comment is meant as a "subtle" way to tell me you feel I need to wear make-up, or even to suggest I'm ugly. I tried to answer your question the best way I could, but I want to ask you to please accompany criticism / questions with a little more text / explanation so I don't have to worry about reading this as an attack on my appearance, when you only asked me this out of curiosity.

      I was just curous, and like to keep the questions short and sweet:) my English is poor.

    Love you in green! Next year's top color is supposed to be emerald, what luck for us gingers! I'm frankly surprised that you got an anonymous comment that wasn't straight spam – 100% of my anon commenters are spammers.

    This dress looks gorgeous on you! And I think it's totally college appropriate!
    Your philosophy exam sounds great, I love philosophy. Good luck!

    I love this dress on you! The color is gorgeous with your hair and I think it's really flattering too.

  16. 28 December 2012 / 14:46

    You look gorgeous. That is such a great color for you and though you say you're curve-less, this dress proves otherwise!

  17. 28 December 2012 / 15:13

    who cares if it might be a touch shorter than you'd like – you look amazing in this dress! Not to mention how well the green looks against your coloring, and since emerald is the color of 2013, I hope you'll be wearing it a lot more!

    loving your green dress! <3 mind to follow each other? i followed u first.hope we can keep in touch 🙂

  19. 28 December 2012 / 15:47

    Hey good looking! This dress looks stunning on you. And I'm perfectly happy if you ramble on dialectically about anything. I will read it, I promise.

    I love that you don't wear makeup and not just because it saves you a trip to the doctor. I can see that you are truly beautiful and you don't even need makeup to enhance your features. I only use a tinted moisturizer and mascara because I cannot be bothered to do anything else. It's so much work!

    I hope you ace your exams. I believe in you! Good luck Nikki!

  20. 28 December 2012 / 20:10

    I think that dress gives you curves! It's so flattering on you and makes me wish I could wear something like that! Now that you mentioned your awesome thing you did, you have to spill. I'm always looking for things to do when I have no money. LOL. Hope you have a great weekend! <3

    haha, i would wear that everyday if it got my hubby to do the dishes! 🙂 But it does look gorgeous on you – so lovely with your red hair and crazy long legs!

  24. 29 December 2012 / 11:03

    I was just thinking the dress matched your hair colour too! You look so gorgeous with no makeup <3

  25. 29 December 2012 / 12:52

    Stunning outfit, love the green with your red hair.
    The shoes are super cute too.

  26. 29 December 2012 / 14:50

    Curve less? Girl, whatever! You have a stunning bod. You're probably just not used to wearing tighter dresses (not a bad thing–I tend to stay away from em, too, to keep things appropriate). But this dress definitely looks good on you! The color complements your hair so well. Emerald is definitely your color! :))

  27. 29 December 2012 / 18:19

    Oeh, Nikki, wat een sexy jurkje! Ondanks dat het korter is dan de jurkjes die je gewoonlijk draagt vind ik hem je echt super mooi staan! Succes met blokken en nog een fijn nieuwjaar 😉 !

    You're so right!! The color of your hair looks amAzing with that dress!! I love your hair color,when I was younger I always wanted to be strawberry blonde, I have a lot of family that is and I think any shade of strawberry/orange/red/auburn/etc. is gorgeous!! Also, I love that you don't wear makeup, I don't wear a lot either (i do like my lipstick though) but I love a fresh faced and natural look
