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.

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!

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.
