We Are Moving!

found here.



Hello my lovely mori girls! Wow, time flies by! I´m so sorry I haven´t been updating a lot here, but it´s just impossible to keep two blogs with really good content, when that´s not your fulltime job. But don´t be afraid, I won´t leave you! Mori Girls are just moving to the main blog of the Vanillery Garden and having fun there! I decided it would be much better to not keep things separated. There still will be mori cupcake content as I receive a lot of demands towards new mori girl makup tutorials on youtube. If you should have any questions for me, please let me know!

I decided to move more into fashion blogging, so that´s good news for you. I would love to have you all on board and come over. Please don´t forget to update your subscription via RSS or google friend.

Thanks a lot for being here and many greetings from the Forest!

Love and hugs,

Working

Hello my lovely mori girls!

I´m crazy busy working on my diploma thesis, including opening my etsy shop and creating content. :) Don´t they look cute? The blonde girl will be a brooch and the brown haired girl will become a ring.


How are my mori girls enjoying spring so far?

Hugs to you all.

It Is Decided

Today I decided this:

But not only about the style. There is much more to it. It is a philosophy. It is a lifestyle (but not in the glam-magazine sort of way) and it is a way to think and act. Pdfs and mp3s to download. And for those who love paper I will self-publish it on lulu.

Right now I am really tired. This is my little secret for today. I will write a book about mori girls.

Wow. Just thinking about it gives me goosebumps.

Many hugs to you!

Mori Girl Makeup Tutorial

Hello lovely mori girls,

today I will show you how to do a very basic mori girl makeup. Nothing too fancy, as mori girls like to keep it natural. I am using earth-tones and a very subtle blush. You don´t actually want to look like you are wearing makeup, at least not lots of it.


I use my fingers to apply the make-up. I like it because it gives me more control over how much I actually put onto my face. Brushes and sponges are nice too, but I always get the feeling that 50% of the pigments go into the brush instead of onto my skin. For this movie I used my cam that is integrated into the MacBook Pro, so maybe not the best quality, but I guess you can see what I do.



Have fun with it! I would like to see photos of you wearing the mori girl style!

Many hugs to you,

Bambi Pullover And How To Survive A Shopping Trip Without Nervous Breakdown

Hello my lovely mori girls,

today I am wearing one of my favorite new pieces: the bambi pullover. I am totally addicted to kawaii pieces that have a mori girl touch to it.



I am actually not a huge fan of shopping. It always makes me feel miserable, because somehow my brain tells me that in the changing room my "true body image" is waiting for me. As if what I see there rather reflects the truth than the mirror that I have at home. And mostly it is not to my liking. Thoughts rush through my head like "Oh my God, this is it, you are done with eating chocolate for this lifetime! I have to start working out, I look like pudding. Geez, I look different at home." Which is true: we all look different at home. We mostly have our light set to a mood that we like. That´s not the case in most changing rooms. The light there is rather blue-greenish and it makes you look sick and miserable. I have no idea why they do this, as I cannot imagine this to be good for selling clothes. You want to look good in them, not like some sort of freakish big slug.

I suggest: don´t go alone! It´s always better to have a more unbiased opinion than your own. Take somebody with you that has sort of the same taste as you have (take me!) and try to avoid being overly critical with what you see. If I am not exactly buying pants (which I hardly ever do, because I prefer skirts and dresses) I am avoiding the changing rooms completely. I somewhat know my size and I know what style fits me. I try things on at home and I never had the need to bring things back. But even if I would have to: that´s way better than coming out of the store with a head full of negative thoughts. Be kind to yourself, there is no need for war. Don´t give too much attention to the mirror. Rather go for feeling: do you feel comfortable in it? Give attention to the material. Prefer cotton to polyester, it is so much better for your skin.


Coming home I thought how hilarious this is: I make myself feel bad because of some bad light situation and a mirror. I must not be that harsh. I caught myself and stopped myself in that behavior. I don´t intend to ever go back. This is it with criticism. Back to the path of self-love and acceptance.






I absolutely love natural make up. I put on rather less than more, it should not make me look different. Maybe I should do some videos on mori girl make up and hair style? Would you be interested?











Hugs to you,
