I'm not really into winter. I get cold really easily, so i pretty much thaw up come August, and melt in May.
This i forgot on Saturday when we went on a wild shopping-spree.
Winters have been quite mild lately, with temperatures of -10 Celsius.
A week ago, though, winter let us have a taste of what cold truly is like. It was -11, which on it's own ain't that bad, like they say in Americaland. But on Saturday, we had a nice little breeze.
A blizard of ice, that is. I hardly ever check the weather before i get dressed, so i miscalculated a bit...
|Dress, legwarmers: H&M|
Hat: Heather Wielding Original
Scarf: Queen Anne's Lace Scarf (ravlink)
The outfit was nice and comfy for shopping, but outside... i froze to the core before i even got to the car :D
On days like that i'm super-happy we have our own sauna <3
I was on a wicked Christmas-present-hunt, and got everything from the first store. After that, i could concentrate on Me for a change.
It's been ages since i bought anything for myself... after checking, i can tell it's been, like, at least two weeks :D
I got a new pet. Named him Eduardo, and in the car on the way home, husband started calling him Bastardo :D
He's filled with sand. Eduardo, that is, not husband. He's really heavy and almost looks like a real lizard.
Which serves as a substitute for getting a real one. I'd like a gecko, and husband wants an iguana, but we don't have the space right now, since Someone is filling the flat with yarn and fabrics and sewing machines...
Also got myself a book. It's really old, and filled with nice crochet-patterns. I've been looking for something in this department for quite a while now, and was glad to find this one.
Maybe now i can actually teach myself to design lace, not just follow patterns... :D
Last but not least, an H&M top.
I couldn't get the colour right, it's actually violet.
Cotton with a pretty lace detail in the collar. Really nice, and it's hardly been worn.
I like wearing tops like this at home: they're comfortable and decent, just in case someone pops around unannounced for coffee or a new dress.
The lace looks like it's been crocheted by hand, but i don't think it actually has been. Still, it's a very pretty detail.
Funny how the best tops come from H&M...
Speaking of which, Mom promised me the best Christmas-prez ever today: she's taking me shopping! Yay! We're spending a few days here, at Mom's and Dad's that is, and she said that since i haven't made a wishlist and she doesn't really know what i'd like or need, she'll just let me go wild at H&M.
Happiness equals basic tops and a few pairs of tights :D
In other news, my flu has finally passed. The last slob of ectoplasm's still roaming around in between throat and nose, but that's no biggie. I'm healthy again! Wuppee!!
