How are you?
Ah, today I finally have time to post these photos. The first time this week that I have some spare time after work to sit here at the desk with a coffee to blog and to get back to all your nice comments on the last posts :)
I've been feeling pretty exhausted lately because of a recurrent muscle ache, the result of my new work out program at the gym. I swear I have muscle ache in muscles that I didn't even know I had before. Plus uni is about to start again next week, so the loafing days will be over.

These photos are from Saturday when my Mum's boyfriend had a belated birthday party. We only celebrated with a small group of people that mostly consisted of friends who are also former neighbours from the place where Mum and I used to live. It's nice to see them from time to time, it kind of gives me the feeling to be "at home" because we had lots of neighbourhood parties back when we still lived in this little village with them. And my Mum made some delicious pork fillets with yummy creamy sauce and salad. And raspberries with cream and chocolate flan for dessert, yummmm... It was lovely!
As I don't have many opportunities to dress up I used this little celebration to do it. Well, I admit I'm not really dressed up, but at least I tried something different with my hair. The day before my friend Farah wore lovely milkmaid braids on the back of her head when we had our monthly ladies night, so on Saturday I felt inspired to try out a similar hair-do. I'm not good at braiding my hair at the back of my head, so I did the well-tried "on top of the head" version that I found here a few months ago.

How do you like my new ring? I'm so in love with it! I stumbled upon it while I was browsing Etsy for anything cute. It's called "Foxes in Paris" ring, I purchased it from Papersparrow, a very lovely art and accessories shop that sells pictures, jewelry, purses etc. with the most adorable illustrations. I'm a sucker for animal jewelry anyway and I have discovered a certain love for foxes on necklaces, rings, clothing and other things. I even found a MAC nail polish called "Sly As A Fox", oh isn't it such a pretty shade of red? It's from an older collection so I hope I'll be able to find a bottle at Ebay or one of those swap websites.
What new obsessions have you discovered lately? :)
Have a nice day!
