Life is crazy right now, one month left of school and the assignments and projects keep stacking up. Here are a few things making me happy this week and helping me keep sane:
tons and tons of candles
I´ve become just a little obsessed with scented candles, and I love the candles from Annick Goutal, a more affordable version of their luxurious perfumes. Also to me, candles are a very important winter staple to brighten up dark and cosy evenings.
I am doing a school project on her. She is such an inspiration and her story is amazing , she lived a life filled with passion and suffering. I am amazed at her strength, her passion for life and her colourful character. One of the most fun school related writing I have done in a long time.
El día de los muertos
The mexican equivalent to Halloween. To be honest I find the Día de los muertos much more interresting, because of what the tradition stands for. The mexicans throw a three day festival to commemorate the dead and celebrate life. I can imagine it could be fun to be a tourist in Mexico during el día de los muertos, think that´s something I would like to do.
My black, leopard print collar coat
My best loved wardrobe item right now. Wear it everyday and it makes simple pants and a sweater feel so fancy! Mine is a bit different from the picture, a vintage coat I got for a bargain last spring. The collar comes a bit further down ( kind of like the lining has been turned up into a collar) no pouf at the shoulders and it has a bit more of an A line skirt to it
James Vincent McMorrow
His voice is amazing! I especially like his song We don´t eat. I love songs that feel like a big warm blanket and this is one of them.
