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

a joint degree..

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