1. Advent

Happy 1. Advent everyone. To celebrate the start of the Advent season I spent the day with my family, lighing the first candle of the Advent Wreath, decorating the house and eating freshly backed christmas cookies.

excuse the preppy-ness but I was feeling a little festive =P

S for Saturday and Snowboarding

On Saturday I went snowboarding with my friends. It was only my second time on a snowboard (I used to ski) but I think I did pretty well with the good instructions from my boyfriend. But now my entire body is so sore that I can hardly move. I fell so many times on my ass, my arm, my knees...I got bruises everywhere and the worst muscle soreness I've experienced in my life so far...haha. So now I'm going to spend the rest of the evening in bed, watching Gossip Girl.

The weather in the mountains was absolutely perfect <3

I just ordered this lovely silk dress on ASOS - it's perfect for new year's eve! I love the back and the bead and sequin detail.

I was made for you

This picture is beyond cute and I want all of the girl's clothes, including that cool tiara/crown thing on her head! <3

It's -6°C today I left the house feeling like an onion with all the layers I'm wearing and my thick wool turtle neck sweater. But when it's this cold I'm far from caring about anything other than keeping warm. ^o^

It's still freezing cold here which makes leaving the house a bit of a pain in the ass. But fortunately I have my warm and cozy winter coat to keep me warm. It becomes sort of my uniform these days.


I've been looking everywhere for our old Polaroid camera but no luck. Just to find out that my sister who's living in England took it with her...#%&!

P.S: Yesterday I received the laredoute leather pants I had ordered a couple of weeks ago but the fit was horrible. =( They looked so promising on the website. I had ordered them in two different sizes, one was waaay too big and the other one fit me okay but the legs were still way too wide and not skinny at all (as pictured on the website).

guess what

I'm really not a big fan of GUESS, more of the opposite. But I have to admit that I am quite fond of this studded watch I just discovered:


I plan on going to Geneva to do some Christmas shopping and I think they have a Guess store there. I will definitely go to take a look at this watch. And while I'm there I will also look for the buckled boots that Ninja posted on her wonderful blog. ^o^

Matthew Williamson for H&M

STOCKHOLM, Nov 25 (Reuters) - Swedish fashion giant Hennes & Mauritz said British celebrity designer Matthew Williamson would create its next guest collection.
Williamson will start with a women's range at some stores on April 23, followed by men's and women's summer clothes to be offered from all H&M outlets from mid-May.

from reuters
How exciting is that? Matthew Williamson's designs are very fresh and colorful: perfect for spring. I can't wait to see what they come up with.

Snow is here for the second time this year and I hope that it will stay a little longer this time. It was freezing cold the entire weekend and I had to pull out my warmest winter jacket and wrap myself in a huge scarf to stay warm but I liked it. The snow makes me makes everything look so clean and pretty.

I hope all of you had a nice weekend. Mine was a bit stressful - I spent my entire saturday sitting a business English certificate exam. But I did treat myself with a little shopping afterwards ^o^ I bought a silk blouse at Zara which I'm going to return tomorrow as I think it's too expensive for the quality.

I'm going to leave you with these wonderful pictures, I love the mixture of artwork and photography. And just how amazing is that fringe dress?


Oh and thank you, Jamie for featuring me. I am so flattered. <3

Channeling Blair Waldorf

My work outfit today was heavily inspired by Blair Waldorf...I guess that's what overdosing on GG into the middle of the night does to you >.<

I love dressing a little preppy for work. I would probably never wear this in my free time because..well for me it's work attire and I like to dress different in private. I mean I have to dress appropriately for the office every day so I love to wear things I couldn't wear to the office whenever I get the chance. Hope that makes sense to you-

<3 YSL

listen to your body tonight it's gonna treat you right

biker boots - vagabond; dress - Zara; cardigan - American Vintage; beanie - H&M;

It's a shame you can't see the dress better on the pictures, the cut is slightly asymetrical and it cosists of different layers.

Whenever I'm lacking inspiration, I take a look at this.

zara coat

I tried on this amazing coat at Zara the other day after the boyfriend called my attention to it. It's so beautifully cut and the details are really nice. But unfortunately it's also quite pricey considering I don't really need another coat for winter >.<

Sasha looks absolutely perfect in it.

do you want coffee or tea? what did you dream about last night?

good morning people.
today should be a good day. I will go to a contemporary art exhibition and tonight I'm invited for dinner at a friend's place. I only have to decide what to wear...jeans or a dress?
Have a good Sunday!

the perfect saturday

breakfast in bed. shopping. having coffee with the boyfriend. finishing the day at the hot springs.

ice washed jeans - Cheap Monday; cardigan - Zara; bag - ShopLush; beanie - H&M; lace-up booties - H&M

The hot springs were so nice and relaxing...mmhhh I should really do this more often.

What are you thinking of, Ashley?

How can one look so good when wearing just a simple sweater and jeans...

robbers & cowards

Sorry for the crappy picture. I just wanted to "show" you guys my buys of today. I got a black Zara dress that I've tried on before but somehow didn't buy then. And I finally found a perfect Alexander Wang-esque black cap:

I can't decide if I like it on me or if I look like a robber with it >.< But it was cheap and it's sooo soft <3. I think it will be the perfect finishing touch for many outfits.

I stopped by H&M today and had a quick look at the CDG stuff. It was nice but the things that were left by the time I got there (after work) didn't really interest me. I would've liked to see the pants and the constructed jackets, also the white blouses looked nice in the campaign pictures but none of that was left. Ah well.. =)

I didn't stay long at H&M...couldn't take all the hysterical ladies buying heaps of polka dotted shirts and cardigans ...I coudln't help thinking that most of them were only buing the stuff because it's from a designer. I don't think many have heard of Comme de Garçons before... It's just kinda sad that people buy the things for the name and not because they appreciate the design. In a way it also amused me...I mean how many people would be buying it if were just 'H&M' not 'H&M Comme de Garçons'? Sorry for the rant :/

Did you guys check out the H&M Comme de Garçons collection? What did you think? Did you buy anything?

flowers and boots

Nothing really special today..just lots of layers to keep warm.

trench coat - Gap; knit cardigan - Zara; flower printed top - Zara; jeans Cheap Monday; biker boots - Vagabond; knitted hat - H&M

back to black

top: H&M trend men; hat: found in the back of my closet...I got it ages ago, don't know where from though; pants: H&M trend; necklace: ALDO

Come get me off the merry-go-round

I love this Manish Arora Spring RTW 09 merry-go-round dress Katy Perry wore at the MTV EMAs. It's a piece of art.

It's probably not very wearable though, I can't imagine how one sits down wearing this. Ah well, it's pretty to look at anyway.

finally friday

Made it through the day!

wearing my new H&M Trend blazer that I got on sale. I love the unusual and boxy shape..I dunno if you can really tell form the pictures but it's really boxy and gives the outfit an interesting shape. I kept the outfit clean and simple as I also wore it to the office.

All the things that upset you. Overwhelming everything you see. You are snow blind.

I really can't wait for the weekend. This week has been so exhausting I desperately need to relax and get some rest.

I'm lacking sleep. I should really get to bed earlier but somehow I always end up doing things into the middle of the night. And the weather isn't helping me either. I hate this cold and grey weather, it's making me feel all depressed and worn-out.

So tonight I'm not even gonna let myself do much apart from lounging around in these comfy clothes, reading Manga and/or watching Gossip Girl.

I plan on going to a secondhand store this weekend to pick up some old frames to put on my wall. I may even find some nice clothes - I'd love to own a vintage lace dress <3

Good nights!

trick or treat

^ wearing the boyfriend's mask
The Halloween party on Friday was great! I didn't expect that many people to dress up for the party but almost all the guests wore costumes. It was so much fun.
