Happy Thanksgiving!

Even if you don't celebrate Turkey Day, today is still the perfect day to be grateful for all the loveliness around you!

I like to thank my friends and family (cheesy, I know!) and of course all the delicious food I'm planning on eating today. 
Also a massive thank you to my amazing, blogger friends. Your comments always make me smile!

I think that from now on I'm officially aloud to get excited for Christmas, and play my Christmas playlist on my iPod, so expect a lot of Christmassy post the next couple of weeks!

Hope everyone has a amazing and especially a delicious (turkey) day!

Now that the days are getting colder, I like to settle myself in front of the fireplace, all cozied up in a big jumper and accompanied by a good book. Even though I adore making nice autumn walks and dancing through the fallen leaves, it's sometimes really nice to escape the cold and darkness of winter and snuggle up with something to read.

I know for some people reading might seem boring, but I love to get carried away in a beautiful story. Here are my favorites:

  • The Help, Kathryn Stockett
  • The boy in the Striped Pyjamas, John Boyne
  • A Thousand Splendid Suns, Khaled Hosseini
  • The Kite Runner, Khaled Hosseini
  • The Notebook, Nicholas Sparks
  • The Shadow of the Wind, Carlos Ruiz Zaf√≥n
  • Breakfast at Tiffany's, Truman Capote
  • Shopaholic, Sophie Kinsella
  • Bergdorf Blondes, Plum Sykes
  • The Devil Wears Prada, Lauren Weisberger
  • Sonny Boy, Annejet van der Zijl
  • Atonement, Ian McEwan
  • Bridget Jones's Diary, Helen Fielding
  • Pride and Prejudice, Jane Austin
  • The Great Gatsby, F. Scott Fitzgerald
  • About a Boy, Nick Hornby
  • The Diary of a Young Girl, Anne Frank 
  • Marley and Me, John Grogan
  • Sarah's Key, Tatiana De Rosnay

Please share your favorites in the comments below! Now if you will excuse me, I'm going back to my book, I still have a few chapters to finish....

Reading is like dreaming with your eyes open

Hello beauties!

I have a slight obsession with scarfs. Let me rephrase, I have a huge obsession with scarfs.  There's simply nothing that makes me feel so cosy and safe. And now that we've left the summer months behind, it's time to get that knitted snuggly bundle of warmness around our necks again.
The bigger the better.

ZARA has a lovely collection this season. If you're still looking for a nice knitted winter scarf, you should have a look on their site. I've made a little selection of my favorites...
