fall fling | dress code.

I just came home from some fall shopping. I got some blouses, a scarf, cardigan and a pair of booties. Fall is my absolute favourite time of the year to shop, because the colours and textures of this season are right up my street.

everything is either h&m or zara.

fall fling | harvest.

Picture snapped while I was visiting my parents. I just love fall harvesting, especially since you can eat most of it right away. (Patience is not one of my virtues.)

tip #8 | DIY guilded pushpins.

Today, I went to the DIY store, next to the thrift shop, then got crafty. This project is proof of something I suspected for a long time; everything looks better covered in gold!

fall fling | fall = cozy.

This is an impression of what I've been doing for the last couple of days. Mostly cozy at-home-stuff, apparently as an immediate reaction to the weather getting colder and the fact it gets dark so quickly now.

fall fling | nails.

The season's changed, the weather has gotten colder, water and leaves keep falling from the sky and I'm undecisive about my nails. Well, not so much undecisive, as just really fickle. I go through weeks and weeks without painting my nails, and then I suddenly get back into nailpainting. Needless to say, at the moment, I adore putting paint on my nails.

staple products #3 | hitting pan.

If you're a make-up addict and have a few more products than you actually need, you know you REALLY like something when you hit pan. Except for bottles of foundation, which I go through rather quickly, I hardly ever seem to use up a make-up product, which seems like such a waste. Needless to say, I was thrilled when I finally hit pan on some products. So  here are some of my all time favourites:

moving house.

I'm moving house in a couple of weeks. The first of September to be more precise! I'm really looking forward to the move, especially after a lovely and summery barbecue with my roommates-to-be.

Apart from moving to a new town (actually my old college town, so not that new), I get to decorate and shop for furniture. Although I get kind of nostalgic at these kind of 'turning points' in my life (heavy stuff), I also really enjoy setting up a new space.

Here are seven things I am either going to buy, have bought or am just lusting after.
