What I'm loving this month.....

Hello dolls!! I hope all of you had a wonderful weekend! what did you get up to!?! The weather was mayhem here, so we stayed in on Saturday and only went out on Sunday for food. But, it was nice and cozy being inside together :) Today I'm sharing some things that I've been loving this month so far - colours, tv shows, fashion & some words of wisdom. I hope you enjoy & have a fantastic start to the week - almost Christmas Day!! Yay!

~ Color Combinations ~
Well dolls, let's face it...I am thoroughly surrounded by grey, dull weather & I know most of you will be as well, because of that, I am craving strong, bright and fun colours. Silvers and purples, golds and teals, pinks and sea greens, hot reds, pinks, oranges & lilacs. All warm & relaxing, reminding me of the beach, the sun, flowers & bright blue skies...all of this will most definitely get me through the long winter!



~ TV Shows ~
I don't watch a lot of tv, I tend to record things and then watch them later in bed or something like that. But, these are the shows that I've been glued to these past months. I absolutely love vampires, so watching Dracula was a must. I waited all summer to see this & it's been fantastic, slow at first, but it seems to tease you here and there & Jonathon Rhys Meyers is marvellous. The Paradise, about an intoxicating love story set in England's first department store in the 1870's! I just love it, I sit on the edge of my seat every time, haha! I love the clothes, the shop itself & of course the love story!! American Horror Story: The Coven back again for the third series..this one is based around witches & the Salem Witch trials and stuff like that, it's been great so far. Jessica Lange is outstanding as always! The Originals, a spin-off from The Vampire Diaries, but I love this one even more. The combination of these characters' personalities is much more entertaining. I think it combines action with wit and mystery quite well.



Designers I'm loving
Lately I've been slightly altering my style, well, not so much altering, just giving it more balance really. I like a lot of different styles & don't really like to define myself with a label that many let themselves be tagged with. My closet has felt un-balanced for a while now, so I've been clearing & asking Santa *wink* for some different things! Just to mix it up, have fun and enjoy dressing again. I've been bringing back the quirky things that I love. No doubt, in the new year, you'll be seeing me in some things that you've not seen me in before :) These pictures below pretty much sum up what I'm trying to say :) All these designers are pretty much geniuses & never fail to amaze me each time they create!





Words of Wisdom I loved
And lastly...just a quote that struck in my mind...this one struck because sometimes we are bombarded with things 'claiming' to be new and original, but in reality we know that they aren't. But, sometimes people just follow along with them because they want to seem 'in'. Or someone might claim that they are doing something original when they know they've just copied something from the past, but they've been able to fool people around, because they are none the wiser. It's just something I see a lot of in blogs and in the world, but I hadn't realized there was a quote pertaining to it...so I thought it was cool :)

  11. Fab post for a grey Monday morning. Your choice of designers is suitable mad (in a good way) and so you! I've actually watched The Paradise and really liked it, it's perfect tv for dark evenings. Love that quote, it's like having the Nietzsche seal of approval for not always (ever even) being the first person to have discovered something super-cool and new ;-) Have a lovely week xo

  13. I love metallics and colours -- so pretty! But that is the oddest thing -- I just had this really VIVID dream about Jonathon Rhys Meyers last night! I don't know where it came from, considering I hadn't been watching anything of his recently or even thinking about him, but boy, was it GOOD lol!

  24. Gray weather over here too... But that just makes Christmas decorating and lighting candles so much cozier! :) I hope both Dracula and The Paradise will come to Sweden soon! I read Zola's book about that department store a long time ago, so seeing it coma alive on TV would be nice! Now I have to get ready for this evening's shoot. Fake lashes on! :) xoxoxoxoxo

  62. Loving all t he colours and designers. I absolutely agree with all your choices and can't wait to see what your inspiration will lead you to.

    I am a bit sad that my fav tv shows are almost finished. American Horror Story and Paradise are so cool. I tried the other two shows you mention as well, but gave up after one episode. Maybe I should try again, because a good series is a wonderful excuse to stay home during the cold days. ;-)

    Have a wonderful day my lovely lady <3 xxxx
