A pleasant weekend.

Despite working this weekend, I've had quite a nice weekend anyway.

On Saturday I helped my mum bake gingerbread cookies in different shapes.

I don't really celebrate Christmas anymore (and I'm also going away, and I'll be celebrating Hanukkah in Israel with my boyfriend instead), but homemade gingerbread cookies are just irresistible.

Aaaand, I got a sewing machine from my parents. I suppose as sort of a Christmas present since I won't be home during it, and they thought I should have a present, too, since my siblings will get some. I've been wanting to learn to sew my own clothes for quite some time, so I'm very happy about it. Now all I need to do is learn how to actually operate it.

Last, but not least, the postman brought a lovely surprise. A swimsuit that has such a nice retro silhouette. It's from Juicy Couture, which I've always looked upon as a bimbo-like brand, for some reason. But my new swimsuit is wonderful, and it's coming with me to bathe in the Dead Sea.

I absolutely love that swimsuit. I am very jealous. You will love making your own clothes. It allows for so much creativity and I have always loved doing it. Good luck on that!

oooh, you got a sewing machine!! How nice of your parents to do that!
I've been wanting to learn how to sew too, I'm always a bit jealous of girls who can say that they made their own clothes. Hope you have lots of fun with it!

Aw you got a sewing machine, lucky! I can't wait to see what you make with it! The swimsuit is lovely too, I know what you mean about Juicy, it does have sort of bimbo-like connotations but that swimsuit is just adorable!
