I am joining in again for the fourth time with But Why Mummy Why to share this J-5! Christmas edition of the things that happened (or should I say made happen?) this week!
I hope you won’t have an attack looking at my busy photo collage. I loved all the little elements and the stars are the perfect touch to end the festive week I had going on on the blog.
Also I was totally behind in my textbooks. I have been helped by a friend who is just a pure motivational guru. I am so thankful to have wonderful friends who are there for me when I’m stuck. If you read this please know that I love you all! You know who you are xo xo… – haha just kidding on the last part! (hope you got my joke!)
Finally, I read articles on the interwebs! Here are some of my favourites:
(please don’t judge my taste in blogs…)
I saw Homeland finally. It’s so thrilling, I adore this season! I keep watching it in constant horror but it is that good!
I watched some vlogs from Glasgow Mummy. I found the “Get ready with me” so amusing. I love Sarah’s accent too! It’s really great and I wish I could do vlogs as well but I would be so self-conscious and my accent would be so so so bad.
I only have three pairs of pants appropriate for the cold weather and I alternate with three or four dresses – it depends of the occasion. I can mix things up a little with my tops so I’m not that poor in clothes but still you could say I have a very very minimalist wardrobe. All my summer gear – probably the same number of items as in my winter wardrobe – is packed away in a box to take up less space in my dresser.
I find my orange pants very comfy and durable and the only thing that bothers me about them is the color. I am trying to build a smarter wardrobe and orange doesn’t fit in my color scheme so I want to dye the pants black. I have been saying this for what seems like forever but I actually have to get on with it: I already have the dye!
I also wore my pantsuit from Seamly.co at the little Christmas get-together I threw on Sunday. I received lots of compliments on it. As usual really! The pants are just fabulous! I also painted my nails in Jump in my jumpsuit to match the tree haha.
I baked two goodies for the Christmas party: cookies and brioche. I had no time to take a picture though!
On the other side, things at work got hectic with changes in my shifts. I’m happy I’m not the one sick but still quite annoying when I try to plan some study time in-between. My mood had some highs and lows that’s for sure.
