Today`s outfit and first snow

(Sweater & shirt H&M, River Island jeans, Next boots, Motivi coat)

Woke up this morning to see all the houses, trees, cars covered in snow. I couldn`t have asked for a better end of November. Unfortunately I lost yesterday one of my gloves while I was coming back from school so the snow fight with my bf has to wait till we`re better equipped for winter.

P.S. Are any of you having problems loading my page? If you do, please let me know so I can find a way to fix it.

Christmas tree decorating ideas

(Photos: freshome.com; colincowie.com; thechristmasdecorators.com, elementsofstyleblog.com)

I love browsing for decorating ideas for Christmas. All the houses look like a fairytale! I`m already thinking of getting a tree at the beginning of December, but it will probably be an artificial one. Although natural trees give such an amazing smell to the room, they don`t last more than a week and I want to have Christmas as long as possible! I`m confused if I should choose a white and silver theme or red and gold one...so hard!
When are you planning to put your Christmas tree? And how do you want to decorate it?

Style Inspiration: Monica Barladeanu

I just woke up so my brain is a bit numb and I don`t really have much inspiration on what to write. Shortly, Monica Barladeanu also known as Monica Dean is a Romanian actress. She is mostly seen in European movies but also made an appearance in " Lost", " Incubus" and others. Take a look at her simple, classic style while I`m going to make a cappuccino.

Have a lovely day!

Look of the day: knitted dress

(knitted dress&boots from Romania)

I don`t remember from where I bought this dress and boots and I`m too lazy and cold to get out of bed and check. I was actually freezing while doing the pics and if I would have stayed longer outside I would have transformed into an ice sculpture.

Have a nice, warm day!

Look of the day: The black skinny jeans

(Topshop jeans, H&M shirt, Miss Selfridge leather jacket, New Look boots)

Lanvin for H&M was launched today and it generate a true hysteria. It seems people have queued since yesterday night in front of the stores just to purchase an item. Although the collection is amazing, queueing in front of the store and fighting with other girls over a top is really not my thing. I`m more of a lazy, peaceful shopper :).
Did you guys get anything from the collection yet?

Movie night: French comedies

I watched "Heartbreaker" two days ago and I found it so sweet and funny that it reminded me of all the French comedies I used to love when I was a child. And since my bf didn`t watch any of them, I found the perfect excuse to start a French movie marathon. Yesterday was "Les visiteurs" which was completely hilarious and today I`m thinking of "Le diner de cons"( The dinner game) or "Leon" (although not a comedy). Hard choice.

This girl looks stunning and I love every single piece of these outfits. These couple of days have been completely chaotic and I didn`t have time for anything. I`ll be answering your comments and visit your blogs as soon as possible. Please bear with me.

P.S. Has anyone of you been shopping on eBay? I`ve found some boots I adore but I haven`t bought anything on eBay till now and everyone has been telling me how dangerous it is... Any bad experiences?

Have a lovely, stress-free week :)!
