My two new favourite beauty products


  I hail from the Northernmost longitudes of Europe, where blistering cold winters, arctic air and brutal winds attempt to kick the residents butts pretty much all the time. I’m telling you this because I think it might help you understand my skin-troubles better if you’re in the know about it. Apart from my regular woes of oils and pores,…

I need more Red in my life


    I don’t know what’s been going on lately guys, but all I’ve been buying is black. More jeans, more tops, more frocks… all black. It’s a downright travesty.

My Ankle Booties Wishlist


  Ankle booties wishlist by katnappd featuring black leather booties     Ankle boots are the marmite of fashion, I find. You either love ‘em or you hate ‘em. To me, they were a slow burner. I used to think they look weird with skinny jeans or dresses but it turned out I wasn’t wearing them right and the fact…

I want some hygge in my home


  I’m sure I’ve mentioned it a few (OK, few too many) times that hubby and I are in the process of buying our first ever home. And we decided that we’re dumping our old furniture which has followed us through a few rented accommodations and whereas much loved and well used, has definitely come to the end of its…
