Fall is coming closer and I think it is so cozy. All the colours, the mild temperatures and big scarfs. I also look forward to start layering clothes and finally wear my boots with a pair of denier tights or over-knee socks.

Here are my essential wanties for this change of season, and the majority of it happened to be black this time:

This is a rather long post. Only some of you may have noticed but since it is one of the essential parts of my life I would like to share it with you. I love healthy lifestyles and have been interested in keeping one during my latest teen years. This includes being active, having a nutritious diet and doing things that makes my mind feel at ease.

To achieve a physic that I am happy with I have worked out at the gym the past three years. Before that I did not have the guts to go to one since I had very bad self-esteem when it came to physical activities. Since I started, I have taken time 4-5 days a week to work out and keep on track.

What kept me motivated was the thought of being comfortable and proud of myself. To feel that I actually can if I give my best. I often feel the need to fulfill my life, and in order to do that I need to be healthy inside out. I also have ASD-secundum (secundum atrial septal defect), which means that I was born with a hole in my heart. Sometimes, when I am working out really hard the heart fails to keep up and start palpitating. I do not medicate neither feel like doing a surgery since I can handle it. What I do notice is that ever since I have been active, my heart has been better, which makes a healthy lifestyle even more important to me. Today, I can not say that I need motivation as in the beginning, since going to the gym became obvious and unforced.

Moving on to my diet, I can not say that it is on point yet, but I have learned a lot the past years and have reach an acceptable habit of what and when I choose to eat. The thing is that I do not strive to eat perfectly healthy food, every meal of the day, every week and year after year. More so, keeping to nutritious and good food everyday, but treat myself on some of these when I really feel like it. I also need to mention that it is hard to be strict with this until you really make yourself used to it so this has been going back and forth in my life. Now when I have finished school and am happier I feel like it is easier.

To keep my mind at ease I both include and take away things from my life. Being highly sensitive can be draining from time to time because of the sensory processing my brain goes through every day. Putting this short, I include things that are positive and take away negativity. It does not matter if it is big or small as a change. It sounds logic, right? No negativity, no sad feelings. Personally when I think about putting my mind at ease I talk to certain people, sit down with some music and my sketchbook, write down things I need to do, play the piano or do productive things in general. And let us not forget working out, since it is perfect for satisfying the mind.

Let me know if you would like to read a list of being healthy in general, or maybe even a workout routine since this was more of a personal post about my situation and not really written as advice. We all begin somewhere. I can say though, that more lifestyle posts will be up in the future.

A grey day like this makes me think about clothes in dark colours. A simple black turtleneck sweater to add some warmth and a pair of jeans with ripped knees. I cut these old washed out ones myself, and also took away a bit of the legs since they always have been too long.

Today I decided to wear something comfortable and casual. A ribbed tee with a kind of wavy hem, I do not know what it is called actually, and black chinos with a gold buckle belt. Paired it all with my not so shining white Nike Air Force 1.

Hi there!

Look at these beauties that arrived the other day! I love them so much, so elegant and fashionable but got an edge to them. Pointed toes are a perfect detail to give shoes a bit of extra. And the gold details..! These are also a very good dupe for Aquazzura's 'Christy flats'.

For those who want to know they are from Missguided. I usually wear size 3 UK but I chose 4 in these since they are narrow at the front.

I still go back and forth whether this should be posted or not since it took a bit of my courage to put it up. I chose to variate between seriousness and smaller notes.


- I am an HSP (highly sensitive person). I have always known, but never had words for it until only recently. It is a personality trait which in few words means that you are born with a more sensitive nerve system. You feel more deeply, you are very empathetic, you may seem too sensitive, you process different events for a longer time. For example, many times I have felt like people misunderstand me, or that they do not notice the same things as me. I hate chaos. I worry about how others feel. Art in different forms, like music, makes me cry. And I can think about reactions of other people created by something I have said or written for weeks. It can be something as small as their mouth twitching, their tone or eyes on me. There is much to say about high sensitivity. It is very hard sometimes but it is wonderful when you get doses of energy and motivation.
- I am an aestethic person. I love to create art, like expressing myself through paintings and making music (I play the piano) and see beauty in things.
- I love working out and healthy lifestyles. About three 3 years ago I went to the gym for the first time and it has been my feel-good place since.
- Whether it concerns friends or a partner my mind is at most ease among calm and safe persons.
- I am still letting my hair grow longer. I have always felt more comfortable with long strands.
- Fashion has become one of my main interests, making my mind more open for different styles!
- My favourite flowers are white roses.
- I take time getting fully comfortable with a person and showing my inner self. Depending on which this person is the time variates greatly.
- I love spontaneity, unplanned adventures, great and small.
- I am very self-critical.
- I always play loud music that I can sing along to in the car when I am driving somewhere.
- I am afraid to be in the way or disturb other people, making me not often take initiative and in worst cases stop contacting them at all.
- I have an addiction for male perfume.
- I am sapiosexual, which is attraction to intelligence above anything else. The intellectual bond between me and Him determines whether I will go further. This does not mean that I do not appreciate outer details like eyes, height or scent though.
- I believe in a positive mindset where you see yourself as being able to reach goals, even if it is not easy at all times, and hoping for great and better things to arrive!

First day at home putting things together for the first time in a while now. It feels good having a day to get everything in order after a trip before going to work again!

On the last day we went thrift shopping again where I ended up with getting my first dinnerware. I saw it and fell in love instantly!

I feel like it is already starting to get colder here, which I don't mind to be honest. I used to hate the chilly weather but with the fall fashion and the coziness I've learned to like it!

I am in love with this style! It is something with it that gets a hold of me. The elegance, the formal yet casual look and fashionable pieces. Looking through photos brings out the creativity in me, making me want to come up with different outfits that I could wear in the future.

Hej finisar!

Har inte hunnit blogga de senaste dagarna då jag är bortrest men tänkte kika in nu lite snabbt. Jag och familjen besöker släktingar söderut i en vecka och jag tycker att det är sååå mysigt och trevligt att vara här! Jättefint område, cykelturer, sol, god mat och dagar på stan är bara några av många positiva saker med att vara här.. perfekt sommar säger jag!
