Hello my friends, I am back! With a little blog make over (I did this myself so still working out some kinks) and hopefully lots of fresh new content that you will like! You can expect to see a lot of the old stuff like outfits, shopping and travel  posts but more lifestyle based posts like books, home decor and money matters. 

I am so glad that over my break I missed blogging - I think that if I hadn't missed this little place it would have been the end. My blog title is a little bit lame but I have been writing here since 2009, so really giving up this hobby would be a big thing for me.

I thought that this outfit was a good post to come back with - as I am currently obsessed with yellow (as you can probably tell from the new design). I have been eyeing off these shoes for nearly 6 months and decided that since they were on sale it was time to splurge. I have to say that I am pretty proud of myself for waiting until these babies came on sale as I usually dont have that much self control when I really like something. I am also looking for a yellow coat so if you ever see something please let me know. 

It feels good to be back!

    You've invested so much into this "hobby" :) I know exactly how you feel about not wanting to give it up. My blog was my baby since 2004.

  7. This is funny because I remember a couple years ago--I think it was you!--you were looking for a yellow cardigan. :)

    I love yellow too. It's so cheery!

    Great job on doing your own blog layout--impressive!

    1. Claire that was me how do you remember that?! Such a crazy good memory girl. I think especially in winter I gravitate towards brighter colours to deal with the gloomy days.

      The shoes are so fun, I think I will wear them to death this winter.
