Looking Back on September

This was quite a blurry month for me. I honestly don't remember that much. Medical issues -and the lack of sleep caused by it- made me into a total zombie for most of the month. But there were still some things that made me happy.

  • I went to the cinema with my mom and had a great time.
  • Caved and bought a smartphone when I found the perfect deal.
  • Started an amazing book that I can't wait to finish.
  • Did a fun owly giveaway.
  • Tried out some amazing nail polish I received.
  • Finally listed my bookmark subscriptions.
  • Soaked up the last of the sunny weather.
  • Finished a beautiful sweater I'd been knitting.
  • And even reconnected with my oldest penpal again!

How was your month? Did any nice things happen?

In the Mail...

Liz Kantner has a really interesting blog about jewelry called "Stay Gold". She writes about current designers, historical designs, and she recently even had a giveaway for a moon and star charm, which I happened to win!

It came in the main this week. I love it! It's very delicate and has a very magical feel to it. I'll really enjoy wearing it!

Lovely Movies: The Hundred Foot Journey

When my mom and I saw the trailer for this film we knew we would go see it together. And this week, we did. It was wonderful! A bit predictable, (and it had a terrible cringeworthy introduction to Helen Mirren's character) but amazing nevertheless.

It was about amazing food and a bunch of generally lovely people. I also liked that it wasn't all -for the lack of a better word- "chirpy", but that there were some adversities as well. However, it was still very much a feel-good film!

Watch the trailer till 1:30 ok?!

Also, it was produced by Stephen Spielberg and Oprah Winfrey, and directed by Lasse Hallström. Need I say more?

I am seriously smitten with this pencil case! Everything about it is perfect: the color, the pattern, the little sheep and of course the girl and the fact that she's playing a ukelele. Ooh, new idea! …this could make a great songwriting case.

Maybe put in some guitar picks, a capo and a couple pens for writing down chords and lyrics? What do you think?

They have a couple other colors/prints available as well, but this by far my favorite. You can get them on Ebay.

I definitely stuck with my plan of wearing all my best summer clothes while I still could. In fact, I rocked super fancy dresses on quite ordinary days. This flamingo one being one of my absolute favorites. It's so colorful and elegant!

Dress: Hell Bunny Vixen - Shoes: Merrel - Hair bow: random boutique - Sunglasses: SunglassesShop

This whole get up made me feel like I was away on a holiday. I was in such a good mood that entire day and definitely took full advantage of the last bit of summer. Also, I was very glad I had comfortable shoes to match the outfit!
