I recently bought this cropped sweater at H&M which I paired with my American Apparel high waisted jeans. This is quite a new look for me, but I like that these new shapes and cuts come in trusty old colors and patterns.

December is finally here, which means I can now officially get excited about Christmas. The truth is, I have been looking forward to Christmas for weeks already, and I have bought most of my Christmas gifts as well. Every year I try to make something myself to give to my relatives. In the past it was either chocolates or cookies in a handmade jar, but this year I decided to finally try out printstagr.am and make my own Christmas cards out of my instagram pics. I can only recommend this website, the service is great and the order arrives within a few business days. I made little stacks of 10 cards with different themes from all year round. Hopefully they will use the cards to send lovely notes to me while I live abroad next year.

I recently bought my mom an Estée Lauder gift set for her birthday and because she doesn't wear bright red lipstick, she gave that one to me. I am wearing lipstick almost every day now, even though it took a little bit of courage in the beginning. I wear a lot of cream colored knits at the moment so, it's nice to have a pop of color on your lips or your nails. Red tones are definitely my fav for the holiday season!

I am slowly getting to that age where everybody around me is having babies. Luckily, I am not at that age yet where I am so desperate to become a mother myself that I would be filled with raging envy whenever somebody else is expecting. I am just overjoyed and so happy that I get to pick out tiny little clothes now. I had made this jar a while ago, knowing that it wouldn't be too long before one of my friends would finally get pregnant. I decided to fill it with all white clothing and I found some really cute stuff at H&M! I hope this baby boom continues because I have a thousand more gift ideas!

Oooh it has gotten so blistering cold here and I LOVE it!! I can't wait for the first snow which will get me even more into the Christmas spirit. Here are a few of my favorite things for this season:
Favorite tea: Anything with cinnamon!! This one is from a local tea shop but I also found a nice one at the market last year.
Favorite flower: I am currently loving red berries which I usually pair with some delicate white flowers or a pine tree branch.
Favorite candle: Anything from bath and bodyworks. At the moment I am burning "Fresh balsam" which reminds me of the forest and Christmas trees.
Favorite sweater: I am so happy that I finally found a nice deer sweater, which is what I had been looking for all winter last year. I had always been looking for one with neutral colors because the print is bold enough. found this one at urban outfitters.

I've been seeing really dark purple lips on a lot of people lately and thought I might give it a shot. I was kind of hesitant to buy a new lipstick, not knowing whether this would look good on my pale skin. So I searched through my mom's make up bag and, JACKPOT. Not only did I find the perfect color, but it is ysl, which means, gorgeous packaging and great formula. So of course I stole it :)
Quite a daring color, I think, but usually I just put one layer on and blot it a bit on a paper so it's a lot more subtle. This picture is from instagram, if you'd like to follow me, my username is @mondaynightfashion

These are two cute little macaroons that I had made together with Maria back when she was visiting. They were absolutely delicious but unfortunately, out of the entire badge these were the only two that looked like macaroons and not like small planets :) The challenge of this weekend (besides trying to finish a ridiculous amount of homework) is to start a new attempt on making Ladurée-style macaroons!
