Shoes from Twist & Tango

Burnt orange - the colour of Autumn. Is it possible for one colour to sum it all up? When I think of Autumn, I think of autumn leaves covering the ground, pumpkins in various shapes and sizes, multiple new autumnal flowers at work to play around with and consuming copious amounts of tea. Evening walks in the crisp air and then coming inside for a cup of tea whilst snuggling up on the sofa. I know I mention this all the time and I don't mean to sound like a broken record but for me the transition from Summer into Autumn is the best time of the year. When we went into town the other day I spotted all the new things that has been brought out for Autumn and when this happens my mind instantly seems to think Autumn is here. Not to mention colours like burnt orange, mustard yellow and deep red really help set the scene. Who could possibly resist getting swapped up in the autumnal spirit?

I've been browsing the shelves in all of my favorite shops for boots, coats and scarves. I've fallen in love with bown-copper-burnt orange clothing and no one I know is more excited for Autumn than I am. When Summer transitions into Autumn shopping becomes my favorite thing! Updating my wardrobe with autumnal staples and wearing layer upon layer of chunky knits is what I've been looking forward to all year. The only thing missing now is the feeling of breathing in the crisp air, to the sound of crunching leaves under your boots, when the temperature has slightly started to drop as the evenings get darker. I absolutely love it when Autumn comes!

What's your favorite thing about Autumn? ♥

Velvet Top - Twist & Tango

I think I've found my favorite fabric ever. This garment equals perfection and when the matching trousers come in store, I'm going to have to get them aswell. (Would also like matching pillow cases and blankets, if that's not too much trouble). The price tag is leaning more toward the heftier side but I'm sure I'll get a great amount of wear out of it and so far I'm very pleased with my purchase! Imagine this top paired with matching trousers and a Stella McCartney bag slung over the shoulder. Wouldn't that be the perfect outfit? Because I think it would.

For the first time in over four years, of only reading books in English, I went through my bookshelf and picked up a book I read a couple of years ago. The main character is a bit of a cluts who flirts with the wrong people, knocks over a glass of champagne on the dj:s equipment and in open toe shoes, rides her bike to Fashion Week, in February. But she's also the kind of person who knows what she wants, follows her dreams and isn't afraid to see them through. If you're curious as to what Elsa Supergirl's pro and con list looks like, give it a read!

We picked these the other night.

For breakfast this morning I had greek yogurt with blackberries and banana slices. A cup of black currant tea and toast!
Oh, and a sneaky shortbread biscuit..

"If you can't trust yourself, who can you trust?"

Cass is having a hard time since the night she saw the car in the woods, on the winding rural road, in the middle of a downpour, with the woman sitting inside. The woman who was killed. She's been trying to put the crime out of her mind, what could she have done, really? It's a dangerous road to be on in the middle of a storm. Her husband would be furious if he knew she'd broken her promise not to take that shortcut home. And she probably would only have been hurt herself if she had stopped.

But since then, she's been forgetting every little thing: where she left the car, if she took her pills, the alarm code, why she ordered a pram when she doesn't have a baby.

The only thing she can't forget is that woman, the woman she might have saved, and the terrible nagging quilt.

Or the silent calls she's receiving, or the feeling that someone's watching her.


I think I might've found my new favorite thriller. I simply could not put it down and I devoured the whole book in no time. I love little twist and turns and when you think you've figured everything out, you realize how wrong you were. If you're on the hunt for a really good psychological thriller, this could be the one. If not, I'm currently reading Two Sisters by Kerry Wilkinson. I'm almost at the end and so far I'm really enjoying it. If you've read any of them, please let me know your thoughts.

Since I recently turned twenty three and I am still in celebration mood, I thought I'd do another posts with "Facts About Me" and what better number to pick than twenty three! ♥

1. I am definitely guilty of judging a book by its cover. I love books and they're one of my favorite things. But if they are to be living on a bookshelf of mine, appealing covers are a must.

2. I'm obsessed with the moon and love learning random facts about space. If I ever get a tattoo it'll most probably be in the shape of a tiny cresant moon.

3. I believe I was born a vegetarian. Does anyone else understand me when I say this? I mean I've only been a vegetarian for the past three years but I've never liked meat and pretty much only had fish before.

4. Hide And Seek by Imogen Heap has been my favorite song since 2011.

5. One of the things I find really relaxing is to sit down with a cup of tea watching Broadchurch or Midsomer Murder. I'll even watch them on repeat. Reruns are great!

6. My memory is really good when it comes to remembering things that happened forever ago. I can quote entire conversations word by word and I'll remember in detail what everyone was wearing or what the weather was like.

7. I rarely have a sweet tooth anymore. I can have the odd biscuit every now and then, or a small piece of vegan chocolate cake, but other than that not so much. I used to be such a cookie lover and I'm not sure when it changed, but these days I'm definitely a savory person.

8. One thing I really don't like and can't stand is sickeningly sweet scents and perfume. Being trapped in a room where the air is filled with perfume drives me absolutely crazy!

9. I've always been a huge lover of books. 90% of the time you are most likely to find me curled up with a book somewhere and I'll stay there for hours and hours.

10. Speaking of books. I'd absolutely love to write a book one day. Even as a kid I used to write stories in one of my moms old notebooks. I've now moved on to blogging, but writing a book is a tucked away dream of mine.

11. Who remembers me obsessing over Gilmore Girls last fall? I tend to love most things autumnal and diving head first into autumnal books and tv series is definitely a talent of mine.

12. I love the English language, especially British.

13. I love 90's and 80's films and tv series. Such as E.T. The Extra Terrestrial, Clueless and 90210 Beverly Hills. I used to watch them religiously.

14. I collect grey plates and porcelain from a brand called Mateus. Mostly in the lace pattern.

15. Feeling autumnal and knowing halloween is around the corner is one of the best feelings! And by that I mean I like knowing it's halloween, but if a bunch of eight year olds were to come knocking on my door asking for candy, I'd hide under the nearest rug before you can say quidditch!

16. I love musicals and I can obsess over the same soundtrack for months at a time. I also tend to listen to the same three songs over and over again until I no longer like them.

17. I have been working in a flowershop for two years and I've come to love flowers so much they're the first thing I notice when I walk into a room.

18. I no longer have a favorite dish but my mom and I once came up with a recipe for potato and leek soup and it tastes better than a warm hug on a cold day!

19. My sister tricked me into getting my own Pinterest account and now I'm hocked. Who knew.

20. My birthday fell on midsummer this year and in all honesty I was a bit sad to be turning twenty-three, as I thought twenty-two was such a great age to be. But I had a great birthday with lots of prosecco and chocolate cake, and I made both flower crowns and bouquets for the celebrations.

21. I'm very sceptic when it comes to trying new things and I tend to stick to what I know and love. Especially when it comes to food. I know what I like and that's that. Unless it says passion fruit on it. Then I'm in!

22. I've probably already mentioned this a hundred times and I say it all the time but my grandma is my absolute favorite person in the entire world and best friend.

23. Last one! I'm very petite and I often find it quite hard to find clothes that actually fits without me having to take them in. I always check the petite section first when browsing on websites trying to find something to wear.
