As the weather is finally starting to feel warmer, everything is looking brighter. While little to nothing has really changed (still working on that dreaded thesis paper, had a bad case of writer’s block but after a little break I’ll get right to it, I swear) but somehow, because winter has ended, things are simply better.
This is an outfit I wore this weekend, on Sunday for a family lunch at M’s parents’ flat and then out shopping. I haven’t been out shopping in what felt like FOREVER so I really had fun – I bought some necessities (a bra set and boy short undies; new yoga pants to help motive me into going to the gym more often than just once a week, also two new gym tops as I normally exercise in the most hideous tops imaginable and that certainly doesn’t help the situation), a huge shopper bag for the beach from O’neill, a new swimsuit and a super cute fake leather biker jacket from H&M. So the biker jacket is obviously my favorite purchase and y’all know that I don’t need ANOTHER black (fake) leather jacket to add to my collection, but when I saw it I just knew it had to by mine.

Life has been pretty hectic lately, but then again it seems that I always say that. This is an outfit from last weekend – M and I met up with a friend and we hung out, grabbed lunch, went to a book store (bought myself a pretty awesome book, more about that later) and did a spot of sightseeing. It was a lovely day and I was also quite pleased with my outfit, though to be honest it was a bit cold out for it. Spring, where are you? I’m totallly ready for ya.

I don’t usually rave about TV shows but when I fall in love, I fall hard and I have been seriously crushing on the show iZombie. The protagonist, Dr. Liv Moore, is a zombie working at the morgue with her friend/boss Dr. Ravi Chakrabarti and solving murders alongside detective Clive Babineaux.
In order to survive (and not to turn into a crazy mindless zombie) Liv has to eat brains every once in a while, and by doing so she also gets part of the people’s memories, abilities and character traits.
It is so entertaining to watch her change in every episode and you never know what to expect. Also, all the supporting characters are great. Her boss and close friend Ravi is my favorite, they have such a cute friendship together and it’s nice to see a male female friendship, where there are no sexual undertones and they’re really just great friends. Ravi knows about Liv being a zombie (right from episode one) and is trying to help her by trying to find a zombie cure. I also really like her professional relationship with Clive, who actually thinks that Liv is a psychic. They have a great dynamic.

I should have posted this outfit a lot sooner but anyways, this was one of my favorite Christmas gifts that I got from M, my very first themed jumper (well, that’s not completely true, as I did once buy a Christmas sweater at a thrift store for an ugly sweater party, but that hardly counts). I wore this outfit on the 26th of December, first out to go shopping (we popped by the mall to go to Lush, I’ll show you what I bought later in this post) and then we went to my parents’ house for a family lunch.

I haven’t done an outfit post in a while and though I do think I have an outfit or two photographed that I have yet to show you, I’ve been cooped up at home for the past couple of days and unless the outfit would consist of pajamas, I’m not feeling it. But luckily for you, I’m in a Lush mood and thought I’d share my entire Lush lip collection.

I haven’t done a proper files of new post in AGES but that’s mainly because I haven’t been buying anything beside Lush products. But since I recently placed an Asos order and as it has arrived (I even paid for the pricey delivery, as I have had many delivery issues in the past with the free shipping that doesn’t have a tracking number), I thought it would be fitting to show you what I got in the sales.
Let’s start with my favorite item: these Lost Ink pom pom flats.

While essentially this is an ootd post, there is slightly more to it than just an outfit I loved and that is because the keys aspects of this outfit were gifted items! Yay!
