Oh Joy!

Fridays have never felt so good! The whole TGIF tends to not have the same meaning when you work most days and weekends are still part of your work week. But today I woke up with such high spirits, because guess what? I've finished my grad school paper! Just a few more edits from the advisor and I am all set to send out my applications :). Even the rain can't damper my mood today (but I wouldn't mind if it went away hehe).
Lately i've been getting back into experimenting in the kitchen and have come up with some pretty tasty dishes. I think i'll share some of the stuff i've been making soon! I love getting a recipe and then adjusting it and making my own version of it. Anywho, here's my outfit, and please excuse my slightly poofy hair, the rain atmosphere isn't particularly kind to my hair:




(Jacket: H&M, Shirt: Primark, Skirt: Modcloth, Boots and Ring: Charlotte Russe)

I am getting so excited that halloween is almost here! I need to buy the cloth for my costume, since I am making it myself. I will be a zombied out rag doll this year :) What are you guys dressing up this year? Any funny past costumes? Hehe I sure have some funny ones, i'll share some old pictures soon!


  1. I adore your ring and the skirt is adorable!
    You look beautiful. xx, Alice :)

  2. What a cute ring and skirt! ♥ I don't know how you're so brave and not wearing tights. I'm such a wimp, I have to wear leggings or tights outside lately. :( And omg zombie rag doll sounds so cute. I have no idea what I want to be. Maybe Wednesday Addams from the Addams family!

  3. You look so cute! Your ring is sooo precious, I love owls. And congrats for finishing your grad school paper!! That must be such a relief & a burden off your shoulders. I kind of feel the same way this Friday because I did an oral presentation this morning at 8am that I had been stressing out over all it's done! Woohoo!

    P.S I'm responding to your e-mail this weekend! I've been such a bad cyber-music-penpal as of late because of gosh darn midterms, but schoolwork has eased up now so I'm finally catching up :)

  4. I love the owl ring! I have been on the hunt for the right one the past few weeks. I might have to check out Charlotte Russe...

  5. Congrats on being more or less finished your paper! Those things are always such a pain. ; ) And I can't wait to see what you're up to in the kitchen, I am seriously uninspired in that department myself at the moment..

  6. Hello there lovely girl! You are gorgeous!

    My name's Amber Rose, and I'm from the possible clothing swap we've all been emailing about. I wanted to pop over to your blog to get a better sense of you who are, and you, my dear, are an absolute doll. ;)

    I really want to see how your Halloween costume turns out! I was a zombie last Sunday at the Zombie Walk, but since I have the sewing skills of a potato, I just wore average clothes. Best wishes, dear.

  7. Oh thanks a million for your cute comment!:)
    You're so kind. xx, Alice
