Before you snow it

*These photo’s were taken before the heavy snowfall. Just to explain the silly title a bit.

Zara dress & cardigan // H&M tights // Footwork boots
Hello there pretty faces. It’s 11:35am and I just got out of bed. Yes, I needed sleep that bad. Since I’ve missed already what feels like half of my day, I’m thinking I should keep it short and simple today. I do still have an objective study / paper to write today and I really want to get that one of my desk. It’s, again, a part of my thesis that I need to send in on the fourth for a quick review by my professor.
This cardigan came it the mail a few weeks back. Even before the exams started, and I got it as some sort of motivational gift to myself. Which does not make any sense really. I don’t really own any other pink items but this pink dress, so I thought it would be a fun addition to brighten up my winter dresses for Spring. Pink also brings me into Valentines Day mood. We don’t really celebrate it, but with this outfit I still wanted to share a cutesy thing K did the other day.

I couldn’t resist to take a peek at the answers  on my reader survey early on new years eve. As expected, I didn’t get that much response just yet. Only 1 person filled out the questionnaire at that moment. It was super obvious who it had been: the boyfriend. His answers made me blush, laugh and maybe cry a little… from happiness that was. 

How did you end up on this little blog o’mine? 
I think you are a sweetie 😡

Why Do you read The Ginger Diaries?

Because I think you are a cute little thingy. And because I made most of the photos. And because this way I can look at pictures of you in your green dress – yes, the one on the bottom right!

What are the strengths of this blog according to you?


What are its weaknessess?

The lack of indoor pictures, wherefor the male sweetie always has to get of his couch 

What would you like to see more in 2013?

euhm… more sweetie? 

If you could give me any advice, what would it be?

To travel with me, play GTA in the summer and … more sweetie?

    Hahaha Kenneth is too cute. "I made most of the photos". Ha ha this made me smile.

    Also you look so lovely in pink! I think I only own one pink item because I also thought that I needed to brighten my wardrobe. I think it's become my favourite shirt. But I still love my neutrals and earth tones.

    Nikki, that pink seriously looks fab on you! And I love the dress as well. Cute little survey answer..I wonder who answered it… 😛

    What a pretty colour! Love the cardigan 🙂

  12. 29 January 2013 / 01:55

    I love the pattern on that dress! it's unique but not over whelming – plus it goes perfectly with the cardigan.

    and does that mean you my answers didn't go through in the questionnaire? 🙁

    • 29 January 2013 / 10:41

      Oh no! Don't worry 🙂 I think I had 30+ responses so I'm sure yours came through 🙂 Only when I checked, just one person had found it already and that was my boyfriend 🙂

  23. 30 January 2013 / 14:43

    Ah, you are precious! I adore that pop of purply-pink. That's such a nice shade of purply-pink. That color should exist more, because purple and pink are both so blah, but purply-pink is so nice.

  24. 30 January 2013 / 21:24

    That is so freaking cute of your boyfriend. So sweet! Love this dress, you look stunning xo

    Haha, his responses are awesome. Sorry I was not in blogland during the time you were asking for survey responses. I dig the cardigan/dress combo you have going on, by the way. (:

  28. 31 January 2013 / 03:33

    oh wow Nikki, it's like night and day between your posts. holy snow fall but at least you got in these sun-sational pics! anyways though, i love the snow and seeing you maximize it's beauty!! your dress + cardy combo is just adorable, i always feel as if i'm sneaking my nighty out and about when i wear something this comfy around town 😉 isn't it awesome being a girl and parading around in sweet dresses?!! those boys don't know what they're missing. baha!

    i recently color blocked my closet and found out i don't have many pink items either, i thought it was the opposite for sure. so weird! i think that color is tremendous with your hair and eyes. you look amazing lades!!!

    so, the questionnaire results made my heart leap just now. you've got a special one on your side there. such a supporter and lover. thanks for sharing, it gave my heart quite a swirl! and hashtags are the BEST, aren't they?! xo ♥

    I love the squiggly fun print of this dress! It's a real eye catcher and really graphic, so it's esp fun with the bright color sweater 🙂
