I want to thank everyone for their heart warming comments about moving to a new apartment and starting a new life! You really touched me with your kind words and I want you all to know that I take each and every advice at heart. So, thank you so much! xoxo
“This life is what you make it. No matter what, you’re going to mess up sometimes, it’s a universal truth. But the good part is you get to decide how you’re going to mess it up. Girls will be your friends – they’ll act like it anyway. But just remember, some come, some go. The ones that stay with you through everything – they’re your true best friends. Don’t let go of them. Also remember, sisters make the best friends in the world. As for lovers, well, they’ll come and go too. And baby, I hate to say it, most of them – actually pretty much all of them are going to break your heart, but you can’t give up because if you give up, you’ll never find your soulmate. You’ll never find that half who makes you whole and that goes for everything. Just because you fail once, doesn’t mean you’re gonna fail at everything. Keep trying, hold on, and always, always, always believe in yourself, because if you don’t, then who will, sweetie? So keep your head high, keep your chin up, and most importantly, keep smiling, because life’s a beautiful thing and there’s so much to smile about.”

Wearing a mix and match of old and new stuff. I forgot I even had this blazer until Isabel Marant included a similar one into her H&M collection (shame on me). Well, since this incident I’ve decided to shop more in my own closet from now on.
Things will change a lot next year. I know it’s a bit too early to start talking about next year, but it’s something that’s been keeping me busy a lot. After living together for a very long time, I’ll be moving to a new apartment in two weeks time, solo, starting fresh… It’s scary and exciting at the same time.

I think I really need this jacket from the Étoile Isabel Marant Spring/Summer ’14 collection. It’s just perfect.

It’s getting really cold outside. To stay warm, I recently got a new pair of leather gloves at COS. I love the minimalistic design with that zipper as a little detail. These should keep me warm this Winter!
