A Very Merry Glitzy Glamorous Christmas

Hello lovely's

December is the most beautiful, cheerful and lovely time of the year in blogging world, and I was so looking forward to writing cosy stories and charing christmassy pictures. Instead I spent my time studying, working and having fun with family and friends (also very important!)... And before I knew it Christmas was there.... It's just insane how the time flies, honestly has 2012 even existed??

But my little time off blogging, has given me new energy and motivation. I hope to greet you with tonnes of lovely post in the new year..
And until than I like to wish everyone a wonderful time this Christmas, and a magical New Year!
Enjoy the lovely food, sweet presents and cute last few days of this season of cheer. And spend your time with the people you love the most!

Lots of love,

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 Zafón
  • 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...

Autumn Days

Every year when the leaves turn orange and the temperatures decrease I get this cosy feeling inside. Reading a book in front of the fireplace, all snuggled up in your pajamas, while your mind is already set on December the 25th.
Hoodies, boots, hot chocolate, crisp air and flushed cheaks (and don't even get me started on wintercoats, mittens and bobble hats).. I love it!

Rose Libertine

My love for fashion, beauty and writing started many years ago (god, that makes me sound old), at the age of nine, me and my friend Charlotte started our own fashion magazine: Charlotte and Rose (original, right?). Just as a joke, but we toke it really serious. It only came out during holidays and was stuffed with thing of wich we thought Grown Women would find interesting. And with Grown Women we meant the populair girl next door: seventeen, blond hair and the one who had a boyfriend. The girl who we wanted to be.

Our magazine was filled with ads (Lancôme, Chanel, Estée Lauder), we talked about the newest fashion trends (big earrings are TO-TA-LY in right now!) And did make-overs, where we would cut the face of a slightly boring looking lady out of the newspaper, and colour her lips in by using a red marker.

Eight years later (yes I'm seventeen now, and no I don't consider myself a Grown Women. Brown hair and no boyfriend) I have started a new little 'magazine' on the internet. My paper and scissors have made place for a Macbook Air and with a blog on the 'world wide web' I have a audience that is slightly bigger than before (wich was just my mom).

After I finish school I would love to become a journalist, and I see this little online diary as a great way to gain some experience. The idea that you're going to work till the age of 67 gets pretty scarry, so we should all do something we absolutely love to pieces and for me that's this: writing.

Thank you for stopping by!
