Happy Friday everyone! This morning (and afternoon) has been incredibly lazy, I must admit. Yesterday was a bit of a hectic one: after my first class being cancelled (‘French Dialects’ – probably for the best) I did my usual, and instead of going home to do the laundry/make lunch/be productive, I hopped on the UBahn and headed to Mariahilfer Straβe, the longest shopping boulevard in Vienna.
Along with the usual high street must-haves like Zara and H&M, Mariahilfer Straβe also boasts independent gems such as Respect Your Ass, specialising in organic, made-to-measure jeans (and whose company motto is, ‘We tailor you the perfect jeans – on your ass!’ – phwoar). I also had a sneaky look round Skiny Lingerie and American-owned brand Brandy Melville , where I’d usually hand over my entire purse, but due to student budget restrictions right now I had to skedaddle on out and pacify myself with this charming sequined-chip beanie from Tally Weijl. I don’t particularly like chips but I do like sparkles, and hats are my thing, so, you know. When in Vienna.
After trawling the seemingly never-ending street for the best part of three hours, I admired some accordion-playing horses for a few minutes before heading to an organised Pancake Evening (there are no pictures of this unfortunately, but you can be assured the crêpes – made by my French friend Ségoline – were incroyable). Now I just need to spend a couple of hours in the gym, and voilà! It’ll be like all that Nutella never happened.
Enjoy your weekend everyone! Tschüs!
