Little Red Riding Cup

Don't you hate it when you have a nice hot drink, but then you get a text from your stalker, and that drink gets cold while you're busy figuring out how to save your friends this week? If the answer is yes then I have just the right thing for you:

It's a Red Coat drink sleeve that'll keep your Pretty Little Latte warm in style.  

And the best is, that you can make it yourself. Just head over to and download the pattern and instructions. Have fun!

...Oh and how great was the Pretty Little Liars Halloween Special?

Sweater Weather Tag

I love a good tag, and this one happens to be about my favorite thing: Fall

1. Favorite candle scent?

I'm actually not a candle person. Shocking, I know.

Black Coffee's usually the way to my heart, but I do carry a particular fondness for berry tea in the fall. 

3. What's the best fall memory you have?

Pumpkin carving, ever since I was little we had pumpkin carving parties, that involved watching the Disney Halloween classics in the garden house.

4. Which makeup trend do you prefer: dark lips or winged eyeliner?

Dark lips,  berry lips trump everything.

Red Coat from Pretty Little Liars.

6. Favorite fall food?

Apple quiche.

7. Hats or Scarves?

My precious owl sweater.

It's a toss-up betweeen Essie's "Wicked" and OPI's "Warm and Fozzy"

 Leaves! Duh...

Skinny jeans.

Book Smart

I simple shirt dress is always a smart look, but Tommy Hilfiger found a way to make it even smarter, by adding a whole library to it.

Hilfiger Library Dress

I definitely need to add this to my bookshelf...I mean closet.

Royal Threads

My vacation is officially over, and as much as I would have loved to bring the castle home with me, I couldn't. But thanks to Zara's newest home collection I can at least add some royal flair to my living room:

How perfect are these throw pillows ?

Like Tourists Do...

Hello from Sweden! Yes Sweden, I'm on vacation in the lovely city of Örebro to visit my even lovelier friend Elin, and not even the lousy weather  could stop us from  some serious sightseeing: 

The Castle

modern arts meets history

I should just move in...

That does not look too comfortable...
our amazing castle tour guide

...and the ghost.

But today the weather was much nicer, and we went to the historic village Wadköping:

a mansion in the park


book shopping in Wadköping

lunch (sadly not ours)
more history....
