It just went up to 18 Degrees Celsius today (65F). Wonderful! When the degrees goes up my mood goes up.
I received some bad news yesterday, and I'm not really the one who likes to talk about it, but it puts a lot of things in perspective. Life is too short not to live fully, and happily. Such a cliché but life is truly precious.

I have never been a big fan of making New Years resolutions. Fall often feels more like a new start than spring. I also continuously throughout the year make new goals for myself instead of saving it to the start of the next one. I say goals now because a resolution is simply only a promise of a change, while a goal is something you can work towards. I don't have any changes I want to do, if I had I would already have changed them. Although, I have a few goals right now, that are not specifically related to the new year, but that I thought could be fun to share.

"A" IN ALL MY CLASSES
I strive for a good GPA. Not only will it help me when applying for jobs, but it makes me feel good about myself.

READ/LISTEN TO MORE BOOKS
This is still on my list since my 'Summer List' I did in July. I have mentioned before that I listen to the Tim Ferriss podcast, and Tim has two books "4-Hour Workweek" and "Tools of Titans" that I want to read as soon as possible.

JOIN A CLUB
I want to be more active in school. There are currently three clubs that I am interested in. I'm gonna pick one of them.

SUMMER INTERNSHIP
I need to apply for Summer Internships. Typically me, I only have one I want to apply for and the competition is extremely high. I need to start looking for alternatives.

I never thought I would write this, but I am now the owner of these amazing GUCCI loafers. I've been wanting them for about a year now, and they are still the most perfect loafers to me. I have the most wonderful boyfriend, and I think I am gonna leave it at that, I'm a little lost in words. I'm definitely the most happiest girl on this planet right now. x

I have had a wonderful Christmas holiday. I got to spend the 24th with Heidi. We cooked dinner and baked gingerbreads. And then I spent the 25th with Khang. We had a lovely breakfast at home, lunch and grocery shopping in Chinatown, and then a very nice Christmas dinner with some of our friends. A quite relaxing weekend followed by the movies yesterday. We saw the new Disney movie Moana, super cute.

Today I woke up with a headache and fiver. Been trying to drink plenty of water throughout the day but I'm still feeling pretty rubbish. Hopefully it will be gone by tomorrow.

Last week was the last week of the semester. I had 6 finals and a few projects that was due. I can't believe I survived, and on top of it with good grades. This was the best semester I have had at FIT. I really enjoyed all my classes and all my teachers. But I am extremely happy about that it is already over. This weekend Heidi and I celebrated our success by going to Jimmy at the James; a rooftop in Soho. Now I'm off for a few weeks. I have some projects I want to start and I also have a trip to Sweden in January.

Good morning,
Since christmas is around the corner I thought it be fun to talk about what I wish for. First up is the Acne Studios Jensen boots in suede. I just feel like they are the perfect boots to survive the winter here in New York. I also wish for the Gucci loafers, they have been on my mind for almost a year now. If I would splurge on something myself then these would be the first ones that comes to mind. They are the most classic, well designed loafers out there. Then next up is the Gucci belt. Probably the least classic piece on my wishlist, but I am completely in love with the trend that's been going on this fall. I usually stay away from trends but this belt just helps any outfit become a hundred percent better. And then a Chanel bag, I guess that's not really something new. I feel like almost every girl wants a Chanel bag. I think this Classic Flap bag in velvet is just the cutest thing. I've stayed away from gold for awhile now, but I guess I am back to loving it again haha.
Besides all luxury goods, what I also wish for this Christmas, that also might inspire you if you’re buying for someone else, is good quality sheets, dainty jewelry, quality cotton pajamas, vanilla candles, cashmere sweaters, a shoe kit with sprays and polishes, a cashmere scarf, ballerina shoes, and a double breasted wool blazer.

​A few photos from Disney World

​Good evening,
​I have had a pretty good weekend so far. Friday night Heidi and I started our weekend by going to the rooftop bar PHD, and then to Marquee to meet up with my classmates. It was a fun night! Then Saturday and today we've been hanging out in the lounge downstairs. I got a lot of school work done so I'm pretty happy right now. The plan for the rest of the evening is; Ippudo and West World. Can't believe it is the last episode of the season already, and apparently there is not another season coming out until 2018. Horrible!

Hello,
My blog hasn't been much of a priority lately which is a shame since there's been a lot of fun things going on. Here's at least a bunch of photos from last week when Khang and I were in Miami. Last Sunday was my birthday and thanks to Thanksgiving we both had a few extra days off and what better way to celebrate, than flying down to Florida. First up was Miami and it was still pretty hot so we took the opportunity to hang out at our pool, and also at the beach. The (amazing) hotel Khang had booked were right at the beach. While Khang was crazy enough to actually jump into the ocean I didn't wanna step into anything else besides the hot tub.
I really liked Miami. We biked around all of South Beach and downtown, so I would say I got a pretty good feel of the city. I could definitely see myself living there. Good weather, good food and good vibes. A lot of people working out along the beach and not that much traffic.

Saturday morning we rented a car and drove up to Orlando. It was a pretty long drive with only a stop for lunch at a port. We didn't arrive until the evening.
After dinner we went by a place called Escapology. We got looked into a room, and with one clue leading to another we were supposed to find the key to get out. So much fun! I think it took us a little too long to realize there was a third room hiding behind book shelves, so if we would have had a little more time then maybe we could have figured it out. Definitely puts your brain to test. I am sad to say that Khang was the smarter one of us...

Sunday morning we started with a birthday picnic on the lake with all the things I like; Strawberries, Starbucks coffee, bagels and Khang. I wish all mornings could start that way. It's just something about eating outdoors, and also being on water. Afterwards we headed over to Disney World(!!!). A childhood dream come true. There was this one ride called Space Mountain where I died a little. I was placed at the very front then going off into complete darkness before realizing the whole ride was gonna be pitch black, the rollercoaster going very fast up, down and around and you can't see where it's going next. I've never been afraid of rollercoasters but in this one I sat with my arms around my head not knowing if I was gonna be the first one to crash into something haha. Loved it!

It was a great weekend! Haven't felt that relaxed, and truly happy, for awhile.

Two pictures from my camera roll. First one from a very nice apartment on the Upper West side, and second one from a rainy day at school.
Today it's all sunshine and I'm about to head over to my knitting class. We're done looking at weft knits and are now moving on to warp knits. Tonight I need to start packing. Our lease is signed and already this Saturday we're moving in.
The past weekend went by pretty fast. Friday night Khang and I had a date at Employees Only; the bar were we had our very first date. And Saturday we went out to dinner with Heidi and Sahas for some Greek food before going to the movies. We saw Doctor Strange which was good but a little bit too sci-fi for me.

Good morning,
I woke up to receive this amazing gift from Heidi. My birthday is not in another two weeks but this was very much needed right now. So happy!
Today I'm going to work on my portfolio. I need to get in to school to match my color story with pantone colors and I need to get down to the weaving lab to finish weaving my swatches. But before that I'm going to St. Patrick's Cathedral on 5th Avenue. Salvatore is part of Knights of Malta and he invited me to attend his knighting there today.
