Inspirational Tuesday?

Now, I am not obsessed with Kim Kardashian style
but I must say I simply adore this look!
Such an amazing outfit - very chic and simple.
And Balmain-ish jacket is to die for.
As usual her make up is gorgeous too.
Overall, an amazing Tuesday inspiration.

Hope you'r having a great week

Sunday baking

Recently I really got in the mood for baking.
After a couple of more or less successful trials,
I'm happy with my results but I'll keep on improving.
At least that's the hope.

Lemon cupcakes with vanilla frosting.

Hope you're all having a great weekend

Autumn in a bottle

Continuing the autumn craziness
I popped into The Body Shop and I found
this shower/bath gel - Spiced Pumpkin.
It smells a-m-a-z-i-n-g!
Spicy, warm and sweet all at the same time.
Plus, at the moment they're having a sale -
it was £2.. think I'm going to go back and
stock up. Pure love :-)

I found that really cute.

H&M catalogue

Yesterday I got two new H&M catalogues in mail.
I must say that H&M is probably my favourite high street shop.

I already went through them a couple of times
and chose my favourites :)

I really like the way they styled it:
lots of layers, very casual, cosy looking and great for cold seasons.

And I think one of the best things about H&M:
great choice of accessories!

I also got a code for 25% off on any item
and I'm sure it won't take me long to use it.

Obsessed with fall

This is why it is my favourite season.
A little Saturday inspiration ..


What do you like about fall?

Autumn in the air

I am a sucker for candles, burners, diffusers and all that kind of jazz.
Autumn seems to be a perfect season for that.
Definitely my favourite season.

An oil burner or a nicely smelling candle can literally
transform the whole room or even flat.
It makes it more cosy and homy.

What are your favourite scents?

Favourite perfume

Top Notes: Peony, Freesia, Litchi.

Heart Notes: Rose, Lily-of-the-Valley, Caribbean Magnolia.

Base Notes: Amber, Virginia Cedar

(based on escentual.com)

That's my all time favourite.

Feminine, modern, sweet, a bit flowery but not too much.


It suits my personality.

The moment I spray it, it makes me want to smile.

What's your perfume you couldn't go without?


Yeo Valley organic yogurts are my favourite.
They're really creamy, probiotic and not too sweet.
I also like the fact that they don't taste of artificial fruit.

And yes. I'm still pretty much into blueberries :-)

Have a lovely Friday guys!

Back at uni .. and back to blogging

Does it make me a total geek to be excited
to be back at uni? :-o

I'm doing my 2nd year.. psychology and sociology as
a joint degree..

Yeah, ok .. I'm a geek :-)

healthy snacks

It is a quite busy and stressful time for me.
Exams, essays, presentations, deadlines..
We've all been there at some point.
I've been spending countless hours in front of a laptop,
at the library, reading etc.
Also when I'm stressed I enjoy snacking but
as a part of a healthier lifestyle, I try not to stuff myself with junk food
(yes.. I said I try to..)

Here are things that I tend to hold on to when I need extra something:)

Eat Natural Bars:
there's lots of different flavours, full of dried fruit and nuts.

Rachel's Organic Greek Style Coconut yogurt:
it's creamy and very coconutty, perfect in the morning.

And yes, I'm a Grazer:-)
I receive my Graze deliveries every Wednesday.
I'm a fan of dried fruit and nuts.
I also love their flapjacks mmmmm

All the information can be found here.

Their packaging changes every week but it's always very cute.

Oh and my beloved blueberries!
I could eat them non stop lol
I usually add them to my yogurts or
eat them just like that.

What is your favourite snack?

Nail Paint freak

Bonjour Ladies!
Today I decided to share with you my latest obsession.
Barry M Nail Paints

Love them all and I can't get enough.
They're very affordable- £2,99 a bottle
(and often on offer in Boots 2 for £5).
They come in wide range of colours,
they are pretty resistant (usually last me 4-5 days with base and top coat).

What's not to love? :-)

From left:
103 nail effects,
308 berry,
304 mint green ♥♥♥
295 turquoise,
291 cobal blue.

From left:
296 coral (last summer's fave),

305 pink flamingo,
302 fuchsia ♥♥♥
303 bright purple,
273 raspberry,
312 indigo (camera doesn't give it justice,
it's gorgeous blueish purple).

At the moment I'm really into Fuchsia and Mint Green
but I'm planning on getting more..

Which one is your favourite Barry M Nail Paint?

Any recommendations?

Studious Friday

Another day of studying today.
An essay due next week and 3 exams.
Glad it isn't sunny today so I'm not tempted to drop the books
and go to the park.. lay on the grass and just be lazy.

Can't wait for the summer:-) So many plans..
But first, I need to deal with a ton of books, notes,
slides and highlighters..
Anybody out there stressed out studying?
A coffee with a doughnut seems like a lovely treat.

Am I the only person that didn't seem to be excited about
the Royal Wedding?

Have a lovely Friday xx
