Now it's November

First of all, thanks again for your wonderful comments and suggestions! Reading them always brings a smile to my face! To answer the most asked question: the trousers are from H&M, hence the pretty pricetag.
Also, someone asked me about the fur jacket. Well, I can assure you that it's a faux one. I am disgusted by real fur and would never wear it.

Obviously, I felt like writing a post today, but I didn't really have a clue of what it should be about. So I figured I'd just start by sharing some new purchases with you (however boring that might be).
Thursday I went to a thriftstore and there I found these pretty camera's. Eventhough I already own a polaroid sx 70 camera, this one came with an external flash, so I couldn't possibly pass it up!
As I was so happy with my subscription to Vogue Paris, I decided to subscribe to Jalouse as well. There's just something about French magazines that appeals to me (you know, the certain je ne sais qoui factor ;)). And they're amazingly cheap, even when you take in the pretty high shipping rates. I already mentioned my new dvdbox in my last post and then there's Bulgakov's the Master and Margarita. It's such an amazing book, but unfortunately, I never got the chance, or took the time, to finish it. I'm sure that now it's waiting in my bookcase, that will happen soon though.

No explanation needed:

A while ago some of you asked me about my paper cranes, well here they are:

Last but not least, I was wondering, is there something else you want to see on this blog? Or perhaps something you'd like to see more of? Is there a topic you would like me to dedicate a post to? I'd love to hear some of your thoughts as inspiration seems to be running a bit low these days.

Hope you have a happy sunday!!

I just found your blog actually, and I've realized that I'll definitively keep reading it.

I'd like to see your recommendations of blogs in a post?

Keep up the good work!

Oh, those paper cranes are so pretty. I used to make them as well, and I had so many of them, but for some reason (I suppose in a spontanic decision to clear out my mess) they were chucked away.
I wish I could speak French since then I would most definitely take up a subscription on a French magazine.

the paper cranes are lovely, i adore all the colors! and i'm totally with you when it comes to french magazines.. i prefer french vogue out of all of the vogues and i still think jalouse is the french version of what nylon used to be years and years ago. i'm definitely a loyal reader of both! and i'd love to see more outfits from you, i adore your style! xx.

Zo zo, alweer een post.
Jopie is goed bezig zeg. ;)

Ik wil ook leren om papercranes te 'vouwen'. Hihi.
Ik wil er een slinger van maken en allemaal verschillend papier gebruiken. Je hebt ook supermooi inpakpapier, daar zal het ook best mee kunnen.

Gaat ie goed, Joop?

i would like to see more of your room...

Anoniem zei

You support the fur industry by subscribing to magazines like Paris Vogue that regularly feature real fur in their publications. You're a bit of a hypocrite I think.
