So cold!


I know I said that I would try and post some pics and I haven't. I have encountered some difficulties: I still haven't told my boyfriend that I have a personal style blog, I am finding it hard to take photos of myself and I am so cold that I am more rugged up than the Michelin Man! I know that if I just told S about the blog than that would solve two of my problems - I am just working up the courage to do so.

Anyway, here are some pics that I quickly snapped this morning. Me in my inner layer of clothes (imagine this with a big puffy jacket on top and that's how I normally look!) and my new handbag from H&M. I love this store so much - it has a special place in my heart as it is Swedish, plus it is full of great stuff at cheapy-cheap prices! Haha. This bag is big enough to lug stuff around (including the above mentioned puffy jacket) while going on trains, yet is still pretty comfortable. I love backs with two kinds of handles - short shoulder hands and across body straps - which makes it pretty versatile.

So anyway, we are now in Dresden about to go exploring the Old Town. Loving it so far, our accommodation is lovely, but I will save that for a later post. Before I finish up, two questions: how do you tell your boyfriend that you have been keeping a secret blog and how on earth do you stay warm and still look nice when the temperature is usually below 10 degrees Celsius?!

Room with a view

Hello all

A thousand apologies for my prolonged absence. In order to afford our massive Europe + Morocco trip, my boyfriend and I temporarily moved back to our hometown to work. We were up the for about three months working crazy hours for crazy money (by Perth standards anyway!), living rent free with my boyfriend's parents. And now we are exploring the wonders of Europe! We arrived in Sweden almost two weeks ago and have been living with my old host family from when I was an exchange student. They live in a beautiful and typically Swedish red house, nestled between a lake and a forest. I know, right?! Hello fairytale!

We have now left Sweden and are in Berlin. I am going to try and take some more style-oriented pics, but as we are backpacking, my style may be slightly lacking. But we will see what happens! If you want to read about our travels in more detail, feel free to check out our travel blog.
