The best part of my day was when they handed out muffins & orange juice at NK.
I just really love orange juice!

I think I need to have a bit of a new years ramble. One thing I need, that most probably do not yet exist, but I bet you 100% could come in handy someday, is a mug tracker. Remember those buttons on stationary house phones? The ones you press when you've misplaced the phone. You simply had to click said button and in about three seconds you'd find it's current hiding spot. That is exactly what I need, but for tea mugs. Now this might sound super strange to most people but to me it makes perfect sense. When I'm about to have my tea I've sort of already mentally decided which mug I'm going to go for. And so a couple of days ago when I could not find the particular mug I desired, I went a bit nuts. And then I thought, "A mug tracker, what a great idea!" Anybody else? No? Oh well. Speaking of phones. I've wanted one of those old 60's inspired phones for about a hundred years now. I've searched every possible nook and cranny of the internet, but somehow I simply cannot seem to find the one I had in mind. I guess you can't be too picky about these things. Although, I'm at the point where I don't even care if it works or not. I really do want this phone. Anyways! We're five days into the new year and so far I've read three books (great books may I add), bought myself a new coat from Zara and watched several films, including Harry Potter and Home Alone. Other than that I'm doing well and I'm feeling quite excited for January.

Hope everyone's had a good start to the new year!

Llipstick in Björnbär & nailpolish in Jaspis.

I'm currently looking for the perfect christmassy red lipstick and nail polish. I never wear a red lip so it feels a bit extra special to wear red during the christmas season. I prefer a matte lipstick at all times. It's more wearable when you're out and about, and you don't have to constantly go check it's stayed in place. Who wants their lipstick smudged all over their face? I know I don't. Nail polish wise I think I've already found the perfect shade! I've been wearing Essie's Shearling Darling, which is a dark burgundy red colour, for the past couple of weeks, but I really wanted to try a few products from IDUN so I picked up one of their red nail polishes in the shade Jaspis. Also, how cute is the packaging?! I've already tried the lipstick and wore it to work the other day. I mixed it with a bit of my favorite lipstick in Mocha Rose from Make Up Store and it stayed in place all day. 

Have you tried any of their products? If so, which one is your favorite?

When I found out it was World Mental Health Day a couple of days ago I really wanted to write something. As somebody who suffers from anxiety myself I think it's important to share our stories and personal experiences with one another. I've dealt with this since the age of nine and it's something I've battled with for most of my life. I'm lucky enough to have friends whom I get to discuss these things with. Not only because they're dealing with similar things but because it's okay to talk about it. IT. IS. OKAY. Don't ever let anybody make you think less of yourself because you suffer from a mental illness. You are NOT your illness. Your illness does NOT define who you are as a person nor should we ever let it. It has taken me so long to realize that I shouldn't let dealing with anxiety define me. Hearing other people talk about their personal experiences and what has helped them really has helped me aswell. I've made a lot of progress during the past year and it has made me feel more comfortable in myself, motivated me to be more independent and given me a positive outlook for what's to come. It's the little things that count. Each and every day. I've had fall backs were I've felt really down and unmotivated. But it's important to know that you are doing this for YOU. It's your life, your health and nobody should ever get to judge you on how slow or fast your progress is going or how much time you need. Baby steps really do make all the difference. Sending love and hugs to everyone reading this!

Acne Studios Sully Block-Heel Pumps in burnt orange.

We all know I prefer not to buy anything real leather. However these shoes are absolutely gorgeous! If they would've been made in a vegan or vegetarian material I would've bought them in a heartbeat. It pains me that I cannot buy them. When Autumn arrives, burnt orange becomes my favorite colour, and based on my last few entries I clearly cannot get enough! 🍂

Earrings from Zara in burnt orange. 🍂

The cutest earrings I ever did see. I'm head over heels in love and I knew straight away I needed them. I've been trying to add a bit more colour into my wardrobe, but why not let the accessories do the trick? Not only are they soft at the touch but also really joyous to look at. I wore them to work the other day and some of our customers complimented me on them. You really can't go wrong with burnt orange in Autumn can you. Or pom poms for that matter!

Topshop Mini Borg backpack.

I've been lusting after the Chloé Faye mini backpack for quite some time. But as we all know I prefer not to buy anything real leather. You can imagine my excitement when I spotted this bag a couple of weeks ago. It's the mini borg backpack from topshop. It's got a teddy material all over, except for the top flap, straps and details that are made from a faux leather material. It's got gold hardware and the top part closes with a magnetic clasp. I think it's safe to say I've found the perfect autumnal bag! 🍂

Anxiety is like a car alarm. For some cars it takes a bat to break the window, when for others, all it takes to set of the alarm is a gust of wind. It hits you when you least expect it and it takes up all of your energy to get rid off. When I feel anxious, I feel like I've been shoved in a labyrinth and I can't find my way out again. Or like I'm being held under water. You find your way up to the surface enough times to stay afloat, but you're still drowning.

Over the past few weeks I've done really well anxiety wise. I've gone on scheduled trips and taken the bus all by myself. To some people this may not seem like a very big deal or a great achievement, but to me it really does. A couple of years ago I never in my wildest imagination would've thought I'd be taking the bus to and from work. I got a text message from my friends the other day saying they were so proud of me for achieving this and it's little things like that, that really highlights my day. I even feel a bit proud of myself from time to time. Especially when I manage to do scary things by myself and feel independent. I'm doing this for me, in my own pace and right now I'm feeling very positive towards this new change in my life.

Do any of you suffer from anxiety? How do you deal with it? 🍂
