Tomorrow is my 37th birthday.
It’s been a rough week at home, we all had colds and Anna was found underweight which brought massive anxiety and lots to deal with.
I don’t feel like complaining, though. She is now eating better and more, I received a sweet birthday gift from an (almost) 97-year-old friend, and last night I actually slept close to 7 hours.
Plus I have a few birthday goodies I’ve squirreled away.
Tomorrow I’d like to treat myself to a little DIY project (paint and glue gun) for Anna’s room and a celebratory lunch with the husband. Life is good.
Yesterday we bought our tickets to go to the US for Christmas. We haven’t been back in such a long time and the whole family is anxiously waiting for a serious shopping trip.
J Crew for mom. Their in-store sales are pretty incredible, but the thing I love the most are the amazing shades of color they produce.
Barnes & Noble for dad. Stock up on classics and make the most out of the illimited baggage for gold status flyers.
DSW for everyone. Nowhere else can you walk out with at least three pairs of good, new shoes. I love the hunt, too!
H&M home. I’m so excited about this one! I wonder when it will spread to the rest of the world? We’re waiting.
You know that dream where you’re back in high-school? Well, it’s come true.
It’s official, the nineties are back in style this year. Expect beanies, plaid shirts, knee-highs and chunky boots.
The problem I have with that is I live in a boarding school, and it might be a tad freaky to see today’s kids dressed like I did in high-school. Like a bad deja-vu. Or a joke meant to make me feel old?
Anna Wintour I’m shaking my fist at you.
When I heard about the concept of capsule wardrobe I was immediately intrigued. The promise is to simplify deciding what to wear and packing, yet the challenge is collecting just the right kind and amount of stuff.
With this idea on the back of my mind I’ve put together a few things for my personal capsule wardrobe.
I have to say I’ve been pretty pleased with the results and the amount of wear I’m getting out of these items.
As I’m not working at the moment I even have the privilege of considering badass boots and a leather skirt (both from Zara) as basic wear-everywhere items.
