Rockin' Autumn

1-IMG_1956

This is a really contrary look to what I am currently experiencing. Warm summer days in Sahl Hasheesh, Egypt with lots of sun and days spent at the beach. But I guess this is what I'll wear again when I am back at work on Friday. It's one of my favourite Autumn outfits and Mr.B loves the dress, double bonus.

Beauty - Top 3 Autumn Nails

Time is running this year. It seems like yesterday that I made my way to China and spent most of the summer there working as a teacher. Now it's already October and  in a couple days I am  going to be on my way to Egypt, spending my Autumn holidays there. As I am packing my suitcase, I am using the time to pack away most of my summer clothes that I won't need for the trip and make room in my closet for all my lovely Autumn and Winter pieces. I am actually really getting into the mood for Fall. What better time to show you some of my favourites for the upcoming colder season!
I am once again participating in Diana's Top 3 round up over at I need sunshine, this time on Autumn nails!

The China Glaze nail polishes have interested me for a long time. I read a lot of great reviews about them and decided to order some. The bright red "Ruby Pumps" is still one of my favourites and the color will also be great for the Christmas season.

I still love my mint and turquoise nail polishes. Mint Candy Apple will be on my nails during my time in Egypt, but this beauty here, "Naughty Nautical" by Essie is the one color I am transitioning from Summer to Autumn. Can't let go of those brights just yet.

My total favourite for Fall is the Essie Nail Polish "Bahama Mama". It has been on my wish list for ages and I finally got around to buying it. Perfect for any occasion and such a lovely burgundy color.
What are your favourite nail polishes for Fall? Share them here or on the round up!

Ballerina style

1-IMG_8519

As I am packing my bags for my holidays that will start in two days (yeeeeah!), I wanted to share this nice look with you. I wore it on Sunday while out on a coffee date with my girls and really enjoyed wearing this ensemble. I always feel like a dancer or ballerina when I wear this skirt and it makes me dress light and girly. It looks more like a Spring look and also felt a little cool later during the day, but it's still fine now during the warmer Autumn days. I can't wait for Thursday to come around where we will travel to Egypt once again. Sun - swimming - snorkeling - relaxing, just Mr.B and I together - can't wait! Afterwards will have a couple of stressy work days ahead of me, but won't think about it just yet.

What I love right now - Balcony Edition

IMG_8452

We do live in a small apartment, but we've got a nice and sunny balcony. It's almost too sunny really and everything that we plant there grows, extremely! Last year we had a 3m sunflower and tomatoes, this year we've got tons of tomatoes and peppers, lavender, succulents and sunflowers.

Sadly the strawberries didn't work and we had to give them away.

Finally in August ... when I came back from China, it all started to pay off. Mr.B had taken care of my tomatoes and peppers really well. The sunflowers were in full bloom and since then, I have been harvesting non-stop. There are still tomatoes on my plants and I have been eating maybe 10kg since August (Mr.B doesn't like tomatoes, so it's all for me!!).
