The Cotton Candy Coat II How I met my outfit

The Cotton Candy Coat



(EN/DE)

Cotton Candy and love apples, bumper car and raffle ticket booth, roasted almonds and pickled cucumber… everyone thinks of a different word, but we all mean the same: funfair, fairground, kermess. How long I haven’t been there! As a child I totally loved it – especially the raffle ticket booth and „pull strings“ – although it’s the most unspectacular thing you can do at the funfair. „Prizes, prizes, prizes! No blanks! Every ticket wins!“ As a child you firmly believe that this time you’ll win the biggest soft toy the ticket man has to offer. But oh no, countless times you go home with a stupid little keychain. Some learn from that and leave gambling behind. Others start to join the lottery and firmly believe that one day they will win the biggest prize the lottery fairy has to offer. But we all now what they gonna take home countless times…

Day 14 in 2015. Coffee and chia pudding. I’m all set. A look at my to-do-list tells: there are just two things done out of more than twenty. And one of these two things is only done for the moment. Because, to be honest, „do the laundry“ disappears at least for 48 hours. I have no idea why it’s always like that, but if my hair from now on would grow as fast as my pile of washing does, I would turn into Rapunzel the day after tomorrow. And if I would be Rapunzel soon, I would be sitting in a tower and probably wouldn’t have any to-do-list (and any laundry problem either). But this idea causes a problem – where should I get a tower from that quickly? The only tower that comes to my mind is Colognes TV tower. And I guess I would have to pay a rack rent. I wonder if Rapunzel needed to pay a rent? Hopefully she had a Tangle Teezer to comb all of her hair. How high was her tower? I guess not as high as mine. Question is, if my prince will be able to save me. And do I really want to get rescued? It’s pretty cozy here with my OnePiece onesie. „Rapunzel, Rapunzel, let down your hair!“ „Splat!“ it goes and my pile of (laundry) hair hits the ground. Luckily, I’m wearing a Papanga, so I don’t get flung out of the window. My prince is carefully prepared – after drinking a green smoothie, he easily climbs up to my window. Beaming with joy he opens his hip bag and presents me with joy (… drum roll …) my to-do-list! „You forgot it at home!“, he says.

Bonjour à Paris! II How I met my outfit

Bonjour à Paris!

Bonjour à Paris!
Bonjour à Paris!

 

Paris, the city of love, as they say. If you have been there before, I guess you can tell why. To me, Paris has a very special flair, that I can hardly describe and that I only experienced in Paris. When I think about Paris, I first think about having a cozy little breakfast on a little french balcony, with croissants, jam, coffee and freshly squeezed orange juice. I think about a cozy long walk through one of the beautiful parks and of crazy passionate shopping. The life in Paris seems to be lively and calm at the same time. And I think this is exactly the magic I feel. Although I’m currently not in Paris, I love to dream myself there – and of course I didn’t refuse to annoy Bene with (unconvincing) french accent while we did the photo shoot. Magnifique!

A short story. It’s the 1st of September. Nine o’clock. The alarm clock goes off. I sleepy get into the kitchen. Brew coffee. Drink coffee. A look through the window. Sunshine. A second more precise look. Blue sky. Joy. Another coffee. Having a shower. A look into my wardrobe. Flip-flops? No. Sandals? No. Boots! My new booties! Jeans? No. Leggings? No. My new summer dress! A jacket? No. A trench coat? No. A pullover and a scarf! Perfect! Get out quickly. It’s warm in the sunshine. Cold among the shades. It’s fall. It’s beautiful fall.

It's raining men! Hallelujah! II How I met my outfit

It’s raining men! Hallelujah!

I don’t know why, but every time it’s starts raining, a couple of songs about rain or at least with the word „rain“ come to my mind. My favorite rain song is the fantastic song „It’s raining men!“. But till this day I can’t decide which one I like better – the original by the Weather Girls or the cover by Geri Halliwell!? My rainy dance performance definitely is inspired by Geri Halliwell (at least in my head). By the way, I like rain, not every single time and also not this mean storm or constant rain, but a short summer rain can be so so nice. And this leads us to the next song: „I’m singing in the rain“ by Gene Kelly – this man’s totally right – singing and dancing in the rain can make one happy! Who is in bad mood and didn’t want to sing with me by now, may join singing the next song: “Why does it always rain on me?“ by Travis.
