Things that never change

When I blogged about Tokio Hotel's new album last october I wasn't very positive to say the least and stating (and I quote) that I had no intention whatsoever to see them perform live.
Well, I changed my mind, how 'bout that.
Have I been listening to their new album non-stop like I did with the old ones? Nope.
Have I been following their every move like back in the days? Nope.
Do they after all, have this special place in my heart and all the memories attached to it, that I just couldn't NOT go see them? Hell yes!

So I told my TH bestie to pull out her permanent markers (why did people do this? You can't go write someone's name across your face, that is not normal) 'cause we're going to see Tokio Hotel next week!
I was late ordering tickets so all seats were taken so we have to stand in front of the stage. Good chance to see them up close, that would be nice for a change.
I'm really wondering if there are still some old school TH fans left in Holland and what the're like nowadays.
I know not a lot of people are reading this since I've been giving my blog the silent treatment for quite some time but if you are going to see them this World Tour please let me know in the comments!

Kings of Suburbia - Tokio Hotel's New Album after all / How about it?

Seemed weird not to speak up about Tokio Hotel's new album after a wait of five YEARS and one day since Humanoid. I've thought and spoke about it so much since 2009. Was disappointed it took so long and a little mad it got postponed a few times too. But overall, I was just really looking forward to their new music. Now it's finally here, I don't really know how I feel about it...

Not hating on them saying I want "the old" Tokio Hotel back but not praising them for their "wonderful" album either like I've seen a lot of fans out there do.
In my opinion Run Run Run, Girl's Gotta Gun and Love who Loves you back are all pretty good songs. But the rest of the album is like some mediocre mainstream house music I would never listen to if it hadn't been produced by my favorite foursome.. or Tom Kaulitz, since we're being honest here.
My boyfriend is a dj and music producer so I do have something to say about this. I once fell for Tokio Hotel because of their creativity, their outspokenness, their guts and the ROCK music they made. I don't think any fanbase has the right to demand their idols make the same thing over and over because that is what their fans want. That's just a strike out to any true musicians creativity. It does me good to see them grow up and doing what they choose to do and I love the statements Bill's making on love and sexuality in their video's. But this is such a turnaround I don't think you can call them a band anymore. Never in a million years I would have thought I'd say this but I have no intention whatsoever to see them perform any of these songs "live". The autotune's just killing me. Would be fine if this was the album they made in their first year in LA. But this is definitely not the come back I've been waiting for.

What about you?

Winter Wardrobe

Fall hasn't even started yet and I already got myself an almost complete new Winter Wardrobe.
Who can resist all the new collections in stores and online? I sure can't... obviously.

Fake leather ankle boots - H&M

Cropped jumpers - H&M Divided

Boyfriend jeans - H&M / These jeans have a beautiful wash and I absolutely adore them.

Authentics Teddy Fleece - Timberland / I've already owned Timberlands in the past but got rid of them because they were a little too small. Now I went half a size up and they're perfection.

Dark blue skinny jeans regular waist - H&M (There is a 20% discount on jeans now!) Notice me buying new jeans like mad? True, I've always worn ZARA but lately they seem to be making only 7/8 lenght skinny's. So I'm looking everywhere to find good substitutes.

Fake leather  peplum skirt - Only

Printed pants - H&M (Haven't received these yet)

Blue bodycon longsleeve dress - H&M / This dress was only 14,95 and I got 2 discount coupons from H&M for sending me a dress with stains so I payed 4,95 in the end.

Top - Chica This top was only 5 euro's as well and goes perfect with my Jeezy's.
