A little bit of this and that.

What I wore yesterday
Blouse, vest, skirt - all H&M, and tights from Noa Noa.

I find it quite difficult to take outfit pictures lately since it starts getting dark at three in the afternoon and that doesn’t leave much of the day to go out and take pictures… . So from now on a larger amount of my outfit pictures will be taken inside. I know that it isn’t as nice as outdoor ones, but it’ll just have to be like that for now.

A couple of days ago I watched December Boys, a darling film set in the 60’s Australia, which I fell in love with. Especially the scenery is wonderful… the golden fields, the rocks, the ocean. The story of the friendship between the boys is just so sweet as well.

Sailor dress.

I love my sailor dress since it makes me feel like a girl from the old days, sort of like Astrid Lindgren's Madicken, if you're familiar with her - only that it may be a little short for that. I also worked a little on these photos to make them look old, and I'm quite happy with how they turned out.


Sailor dress from Chicstar, hair bow from Glitter, leotard (underneath) from American Apparel, tights from H&M, and lace-up shoes from Bianco.

Come in...

I've decided to post some photos of my apartment like I've seen many other bloggers do.
I suppose it doesn't quite reflect my current taste (which is more romantic, French, softer, retro), whereas my apartment in my eyes seems to have lots of oriental influences, that I used to be into. I wish I could change it, but I don't also really see the point if I'll be moving in less than a year or so. However, I do for the most part like it.

I have lots of books, and most of them are stored in my kitchen.

I got this retro style radio for my birthday as the radio on my CD player didn't work and I really missed listening to the radio now and then and especially while cooking. Now cooking is a lot more fun.

My living room.

Parts of my messy closet.

I love this jewellery box. I can't remember exactly where I got it from, but I think it's Chinese, brought by someone who was a seaman many, many years ago. It's really pretty to look at and it plays a sweet little melody.

This is my bedroom in which not much more than my bed fits. The bedcover I bought in Turkey last year, and the mirror is an antique one I stole/borrowed from my mother.

On my bedroom wall I have a photo of ballet dancers that I like waking up to. This wall also looks more like the way I'd like all of my apartment to look like.

I haven't blogged in a week now, and I feel sort of bad about that. There are, however, several reasons for that... I've been working a lot, I've been ill, and every time I thought of posting something in my blog I had absolutely no clue what to post. Oh well. 

On Saturday I went to a fun party (that I unfortunately had to leave early since I had an early morning shift on Sunday), where excellent food was served; Indian food, pies, brownies, and a great punch. I always forget to take pictures, or I feel a little uncomfortable at it if I there are many people I don't know at parties so I don't have any pictures of the food, or much else for that matter. A while into the party I ended up playing scrabble with some people, and I almost won.

This is what I wore:


Vintage teddy bought on Ebay, black skrirt with lace underneath from H&M, white tights from Cubus.

What did you do this weekend?

Yesterday's outfit.

What I wore yesterday somehow turned out to mostly consist of pastel colours (even if the blue is a little too dark to be considered a pastel colour).

The blue wool vest used to be my Grandfather's, the yellow skirt is thrifted, the pink leotard underneath is from AA, the beslt from F21, and the shoes from Benetton.

Sometimes you can't think of a title.

This is quite a silly post, I suppose - which I am mainly doing since I didn't want to wait too long until next time I update. Now, I don't really believe in just writing anything just to update your blog, as then I think it's better not to do it at all... But, I do have some bits and pieces to say.

First of all, thanks everyone for all the encouraging comments in the previous post. I feel a little better now. I'm adjusting to not having him around anymore, and I suppose December isn't really that far away, when you think about it.

Secondly, I got a new computer yesterday (which is the main reason why I didn't update much this week), a macbook, and although it was very expensive, I love it. I just figured I'd go on a super strict food, clothes and other expenses budget for a few months. I'm not quite sure if the clothes part will be as successful as I plan for it to be, but I'll at least try to limit myself quite severely. 


I was tagged with this sweet 'I love your blog' award  by Raquel from So Trendy

To finish off, I thought I'd post some cute pictures of my dog, Tassus. Most of them are a few months old.

Nothing to do, nothing to say.

I really could not think of a better title, so excuse this one. I suppose I'm just feeling a bit down at the moment. My boyfriend left yesterday, after spending more than two months with me, and now I won't see him until December. It's so long- though I know I get sort of "used" to not having him around after a while...

My laptop also broke down, and I have no idea whatsoever what's wrong with it. If this had happened at a different time I would have screamed, but now since I already feel sad it's just making me sadder, or apathetic, perhaps. I don't know. I just don't feel like I have the money to spend on a new computer at the moment, but there is no other way.

Anyway, this is what I wore on Sunday.

Top from Cala in Israel, skirt with lace petticoat from H&M, and shoes from Bronx.

The sky was also beauitful.

Thoughts, gloves and a tag.

This has been a really stressful week at the teaching work experience I'm doing at a school, with lots of planning and work. It really takes so much time, but it is also very interesting and I do think I like it a lot. It's just very demanding - more than I ever imagined with all the planning that's needed, and just being a teacher, and talking. You wouldn't believe how sore my throat felt after giving my first lesson this week. I do suppose it's something you get used to, though. Hopefully at least. Next week, and onward, will be even more difficult, as I'll be doing all the teaching on my own. I am, luckily, also excited for it.

I decided to treat myself to a nice pair of leather gloves from Bianco this week. They're perfect, in my opinion, and I especially love the zipper on them, which make them a little special.


A while ago I was tagged by Sidney Doll to list six quirky facts about myself, so here I go:

- Every morning (for quite a few months now) I eat buckwheat porridge with warm soy milk for breakfast. It's just so good, warm and filling.

- I used to love languages even more than I do now when I was younger. When I was 14 I went to an evening French course, and read heavy linguist books.

- I am terrified of birds, which many people think is an awkward phobia. I don't mind little birds so much (I just wouldn't want to get too near them), but bigger birds, especially pigeons are so disgusting, and I sometimes have to do detours to avoid them... However, other people seem to mind that more than I do. The thing is, I also don't want to try to cure this phobia, since I under no circumstances want to get closer to these disgusting birds.

- I tend to wake up with a sore throat, feeling clogged up and unable to breathe well in the morning. It's incredibly annoying.

- I have a habit of being really interested in a particular subject for a period of time, almost to the point of obsession, causing me to read up on it, and learning a lot about it. After some time though, the interest slowly fades, and an interest in something else might awake. At the moment I don't think I have a burning interest for anything (if we don't count fashion in), but around three - four years ago I was really interested in the Holocaust, for a long long time (and I cannot say that I'm not interested in it anymore either).

- I cannot remember the last time I wore trousers. I as good as always wear skirts or dresses. It's just so much more comfortable, I think.
