All the red things

 

 

 

“Khölner Dom-spekulatius” cookies: gift from the Rimowa store opening • Blazer: Massimo Dutti  • Essie’s Fishnet stockings nailpolish • White bedding: Ikea  • Flannel printed bedding: gift from my mom 

 

It’s that time of the year again where I slowly disappear from the internet. Scholarly deadlines coming creepy close and my finals are almost here too. I have finals on January 10th, 15th, 21st and 31st, which is is a pretty good schedule. So good even, that I might squeeze an extra day of fun into my Christmas break. It are going to be a hectic few weeks over here! My moms birthday is on the 24th too and I have yet to come up with a nice present. I also still have no clue what to gift my boyfriend. I’ve spent hours aimlessly walking into shops on the main street, but I have yet to fall in love with the perfect presents to give away. Shopping for myself however, is easier than ever. I think I have never had such a full Christmas wishlist. Topping the chart this year is a perfume, preferably the Joe Malone Peonies and Blush Suede (I am a blogger you know). My mom is also going to London next week and I gave her carte blanche to shop a little something at J.Crew or Anthropologie. Because let’s face it: I could never afford an Anthropologie dress if my mom wouldn’t help me a little. I also caved and bought a perfectly fitting red blazer for myself to amp up my classic little black dresses.

 

In the mix above you see a ton of pictures with red things in them. I came home from class the other day and suddenly noticed how much red there was in both my closet and my interior. I love this festive color, and I guess you can really tell by how I dress and live. A classmate even asked me if it was my favorite color the other day (it’s not, my favorite is orange!). The holidays are coming, and as you can see we are fully prepared with a Christmas tree and a small cradle (not pictures I’m afraid!). All we need more is beautifully wrapped gifts to fill up the empty space underneath the tree!

 

I also included a German kind of speculaas, just for you Bas.

    Kerstmis!!! Dat was het eerste die me opviel aan die foto's, hoe 'kersterig' het eruit zag. ( is dat eigenlijk wel een woord?? 😉 )
    Zo grappig, jij hebt kweet niet oeveel rode dingen en ikke bijna geen 😉
    Ik ga ook bijna weer naar Engeland om wat Christmas shopping te doen. We gaan de 21e naar Canterbury 😉

    I love the pictures! You did that amazingly. I am already stressed out and so over school haha. Can't believe how busy this semester has been and I can't stop worrying. No me gusta. Good luck with your exams and deadlines!

      Ik haat jou Audrey! Haha!
      Ik heb gisteren nog naar mijn ouders gebeld om te vragen of ze na de examens een dagje mee naar Canterbury wilden gaan, maar mijn mama vond het te koud. Ik had in de Fenwick zoooooo’n leuke spulletjes gezien voor mijn kot van Orla Kiely en Pantone. Ik kon ze zelf niet meenemen op de bus toen ik er zelf was, dus ik wil graag nog eens terug 😀

      Denk aan mij als je daar bent hé! 😀 Veel shopping plezier ^^

    I didn't think I really liked red, but last year I wore it all the time and I still get new red pieces every now and then. My latest one is a coat. The stitching on your blazer's collar looks great. My boyfriend's birthday is this month too. I have all his gifts already, but I don't know what to give anyone else.

      I wanted a red coat so badly, but I settled for a dark grey one when I couldn’t find any red ones last year. But this red blazer, I couldn’t not pass up!

    Such lovely photos. I'm loving all things red & gold right now. And that blazer looks fantastic. I've got my eye on a red one from J.Crew at the moment! All the best with your school too!!

    I am not a big fan of red, but I love it during the holiday season!

      Mind you, our Dutch & Belgian speculaas is very different from this German one still! And peanut butter in a smoothie? That sounds terrible actually :p

    Love how much red there is! It is so cheery. I also love this intimate look at the details of your life and how that makes a part of this collage.

    i love red, it's such an easy colour to wear and it really livens up an outfit to add a pair of red shoes or some red lipstick or nail polish, whether it's the festive season or not! 🙂
