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.

Leaving on a jetplane

I am leaving for a destination I hold very dear, in a week! It's very exciting and I can't get it out of my mind - I miss it since I haven't been there for years!

Styling tips from a 6-year old.

I'm not shy to admit that I do like dressing up and being well, an adult female. I do enjoy putting on a little something special underneath my clothes and feel a bit sexy. I will also admit, though, that when I saw the Zara Kids Lookbook for November, I just didn't feel like being an adult anymore. I mean, look at this kid! Could she be more awesome?

Bon Anniversaire

The placement cards, a variation of the standard origami crane.
I attended my father's birthday the other night. It was his 50th, so he decided it was about time to "bring out the big guns" and have a feast. We hired a chef and enjoyed a fantastic 11-course meal. I will try to remember all of the courses as well as I can, but there may be mistakes (sorry).
I would also like to apologize in advance for the somewhat horrible quality of these photos (with the exception of the caviar pictures), but I still wanted to share some good food (and wine) with you! I also didn't take photos of the first three (and all of the champagne as well!)  courses, which is a real shame - we had oysters that were to die for!

I really enjoy taking walks with my dogs, especially in autumn weather, so I decided to do just that the other day.

A Few Things

These are just some of my things, but they are also those of my things I use, or look at, the most. So of course, this would make them my favorite things. I do have other favorite things, that I don't use that often, like the ring my mother gave to me when I was 18, which I don't use fairly often and such. But these things are almost always around me.

My Hermès bracelet. I have been wearing this ever since I got it. It was actually this bracelet that made me start wearing gold, seeing as I always thought of myself as a "silver girl". I'm still getting used to wearing gold, but now I've stopped wearing silver. Maybe someday, I will get comfortable with mixing my precious metals. Alas, I have not yet.

Movember Wear

November wear #3

I've geeked out "polyvoring" today, to celebrate my new-found pseudo freedom from hydrogeology.
These sets I've made, are some I wouldn't mind wearing this Movember (if only I had the money). Have you guys heard about this before? Quite an honorable and amusing cause. I wouldn't want to shave my beard, though. I've been growing it out for 20+ years now, I can't just cut all of that off! The beforementioned was a joke, by the way.

I have been doing few things other than studying these past days. What I have been doing, though, are things that I love. Things like taking walks in the forest and tying up roses (so they may air dry).

I cannot even begin to describe how much I love autumn weather. It's fantastic when the air (and leaves) is crisp, refreshing and yet kind of warm at the same time. The leaves that turn from green, to a dull moss-green and then to turn into a dozen of vivid hues of yellow and orange. It touches my heart in a special way, a way that reminds me of the "hyggelige" days to come. "Hygge" is exactly what I think of, when I think of autumn. The closest translation for this word would be cozy, but it's so much more than that. It's the way people have rosy cheeks, they way we smile at a complete stranger, the way you can spend an entire day watching things that you won't remember the following day with your closest companions. To me, autumn is synonymous with "hygge".

I'm planning a few posts, that will show up later this week. Thank you!
