This weekend was a mixture of sea, sand and pancakes. Helena and I ventured to the Aberdeen beach and had some pancakes and brownies with coffee-is there anything better than having a delicious breakfast in the sunshine? Then, I decided to dip my legs in the sea and pretend for a moment that I was back home- it didn't work pretty well but it still was much fun! At night we went salsa dancing and before midnight we ended up at a welcome flat party. All in all a great weekend!
Happy Thursday :)

Love,

Personal style // Work Force socks review

socks review
For the past month or so I have been wearing these wool rich socks to keep me warm and protect me from the cold Scottish weather. They were kindly sent to me by the Sockshop's Workforce Socks for a review and even though I usually try a product many times before reviewing it on the blog, from the moment I tried these I knew this would not be the case this time.
Comfortable, soft and with a lovely colour that matches pretty much most of my outfits, this pair of socks keeps my feet warm and is the ideal partner for my ankle boots.
I am all about cozy wear during the winter and my going to the University style is normally a knitted dress, leggings and my boots. Every now and then I might change to a girly skirt and a sweater, just for the fun of it, but no matter what I wear these socks have been my best friend so far!
Thanks Work Force Socks for this ideal winter gift :)

Love,
Anastasia

I cannot get used to the fact that Aberdeen is so beautiful during autumn; every little corner and street is lined with leaves in various colours that make me want to stroll through the University and the cobbled alleyways during lunch break. Sometimes I am completely blown away by the beauty of nature and the combination of all these brown/orange colours with the granite buildings. Life feels so much better after a short walk :)

Today I got dressed according to the colours around me in a khaki jacket and beige winter knit jumper. I also got very enthusiastic that is finally the season to wear beanies and got my beloved handmade by my mother burgundy beanie on! In case you are not aware, my mum keeps an Etsy shop with handmade crocheted and knitted accessories, such as beanies, scarves, bags and iPad cases. Totally worth it having a look around the shop HERE.

On a side note, I shared with you yesterday on my Instagram account that I cut my hair and some of you asked me for a picture so here you go, new hairstyle revealed! I trimmed my hair at home and initially tried to keep it at the same length and just create a few layers but eventually decided to go for a real haircut and got rid of 8cm. I hadn't realised how long it was, up until the time I saw all the hair on the floor and boy it felt so good! Washing and drying it now is much easier and also I love the lightness sensation I have since then. I wonder what kept me from not doing it earlier..

Another fact that makes me happy is that it is finally the end of the week. The weekend is getting closer and I have lined up a flat party so need to start with the preparations tomorrow. Spent last night online seeking for recipes to follow but all suggestions are welcome, so please feel free to drop me a comment :)

Love,
Anastasia
