Adieu 2013, bonjour 2014

Keeping with the theme of the new year, I stumbled across a questionnaire on Whipped Style which seemed fitting as it was about new year's resolutions. So, here are (some of) my resolutions

In Memoriam

ear 2013,

Even though you are no more, I will always think back and treasure our shared memories. You brought me many laughs, joys and a few tears. Nothing that was too hard to handle, though.
You brought many new friends into my life, all of whom I am incredibly grateful for.
You robbed me of my very last money during your last days, clawing them with you in your dying breath - which is why I'm not overtly displeased with having bid you goodbye and welcomed 2014 and it's January sales. I will still look back sometimes, on some of our great moments together.

The Unbearable Unpleasantness of Being (a Mostly-Perfectionist)

Via Tumblr (please contact me if you know who to credit)

Sometimes life just hits you in the face - it all goes to hell and if you, like me, are a perfectionist (of any sort) it can hit you extra hard. The thing is, most of us perfectionists do not expect everyone to fall into our idea of perfection- I could care less if my friend burnt her roast dinner but if it would happen at my own mistake though, I would never forgive myself. Even to this day I can still mentally kick myself for burning a piece of toast I was making for my mother's birthday ten years ago.

Thank you!

just wanted to thank you if you're reading my blogposts and send you lots of love, since I know I've been quite inconsistent. I could blame it on the lack of time I currently have, since all my time is divided between studying and living, but that's not really fair. I do have time on the computer as well, it's just that nothing significantly noteworthy has happened. Besides starting university again and actually finding it abnormally hard to just keep along (Chinese). So I'm just focusing really hard and blogging is something I want to do, but I just never feel like I have that much to say. If you just want to see something, try checking my tumblr or my polyvore. I've been updating them quite a lot.
As always, I will try to find something interesting to say and, hopefully, it will be interesting to read as well.

Thank you again for reading, I hope you had a fantastic weekend!
- C.

Last time (as well as the first) I visited London, I bought these amazing little truffle boxes. I rarely get to taste such small luxuries, so I was a bit skeptical at first. Not only is the price tag a bit steep, but I've never really loved chocolate and I never really fancied myself a chocolate girl. I'm much more of crème brulée, pana cotta or lemon-y girl (I have a serious addiction to lemons - I can't get enough of it!).
In spite of this, and because of the pretty packaging, I gave these a shot.

Also, this is happening tonight

I've just returned home from one-and-a-half month trip to NY. As always, I fell in love with the city and all of the impressions. I didn't do everything I wanted, but I sure did a lot of things I didn't set out to do, which ended in good times. All in all, I had a fantastic time and I am incredibly grateful for the opportunity. But for now, I must admit that it is good to be home. One of the things I bought was a vinyl of Jack White's album "Blunderbuss" - so of course I had to listen to it the day I got home. I've heard it before (on repeat on spotify!), but it feels good owning things I really adore.  I can recommend it to everybody! Seriously, RUN out and get it, ladies and gentlemen - it is that good.

Thank you!

Kartofler, Potatoes, Potatis


One of the absolute best things of summer: potatoes.
I am not talking about the regular, large and grainy potatoes - you know, the ones where you overcook them and they taste like mushy dirt. Oh no, I'm talking about the freshly dug, small monstrosities that have an ugly exterior but is a superior potato in every way that is possible.

They see me strolling, they're hating.

I haven't been able to find my camera lately, so unfortunately I have not been able to upload pictures of my recent purchases. I suspected to go on a shopping spree when I was in New York, but instead I kept it simple and bought items that will (hopefully) be in my wardrobe for many years. Except, of course, the nailpolish spree I went on. This doesn't count - does it?

Picture found here
I can't quite say, that I haven't had a lot of time on my hands recently. My only excuse for not blogging these days, is that there is not quite much to blog about. I have been relaxing, reading, playing games and eating. On top of the list is sleeping, though. So there is not much to report, other than this is the time I love the most. The holidays were you can just recharge your batteries and not care if you haven't taken a shower, since you're not about to go outside and meet people. I love days where one doesn't have anything to worry about, other than what you're going to make for lunch.
The only thing I have really been doing, is planning my New Year's outfit.

NYC in instagram

Hello again!
I'm incredibly tired, so I'm going to a bit lazy and just update you on my trip by using the instagram pictures I took there.
