The blanket scarf

DS1 2 

 I absolutely love these blanket scarves, I noticed they are in full bloom this season and I myself could not resist and had to have at least one. I got this one from New Yorker and what intrigued me was the fact that it's double faced which makes things a lot more interesting. Plus, it's so warm and soft, you can just cuddle yourself in it with a cup of hot chocolate while watching your favorite TV show - I know I am!
 What do you think about these scarves?

Autumn's end


 This past weekend has been rainy and really gloomy, which was disappointing since I really wanted to test out my new camera outdoors - one I am still learning to use - so, the weather turned on me right when I arrived downtown. A cold rain was waiting for me, I was all elegant and I just had my hair done and I was also carrying a heavy camera in my bag; it was all peaches and cream. A failed weekend from this point of view.
Anyway, we managed to test it Monday morning while I was still sleeping in my heels, but at least I had my results, and I am quite pleased. I wished we had more time to explore more options, but I am just getting impatient here, there is plenty of time in fact.
On other news, I saw the final "Hunger Games" film, it was exciting, a bit scary in some parts, a bit predictable and a bit hollow. I loved the action - mind you, I didn't read the books - but I disliked the ending, it just didn't feel right, it didn't convinced me at all, and I hate that, I hate it when an ending isn't satisfactory. But I made a cake that day and at least that was satisfactory.

 The weather is turning cold but I hope you'll have a sunny, positive week! I am tempting myself to try baking some macarons this week. Fingers crossed!

If it's Autumn, then I'm wearing purple


 There is this classic feeling I get each Autumn that makes me want to wear purple clothing and violet lipsticks - such as this one I am wearing here, I got it from Nyx in the shade "Transylvania" ( I thought it was appropiate, since I acually live in Transylvania!) 
 Paired with dark greens or teal, or even burnt yellow tones, there are so many possibilites, this color is really suited for this season, it looks bitter-sweet and it leaves me craving for red wine! 
Speaking of Autumn, I fear it's almost gone. All the beautiful leaves are on the ground and the trees look sad, the cold is kicking in and I feel (as almost all years) that I didn't manage to enjoy a sunny Autumn as much as I wanted to.
 But oh well...time flies and we're looking forward for Black Friday sales now, aren't we? Did you made your shopping list?
