If you're watching...

After months of absolute silence, I cannot believe I am blogging again! As some of you may know, I had to travel to Greece on a business trip and unfortunately blogging was not a possible option... Oh well, I'm back now and I have tons of making up to do!

And since I mentioned business, I've been experimenting with a twist of corporate goth. It's amazing how easy it is to combine a t-shirt with a pencil skirt and a cardigan and voila, office attire ready!

T-shirt: Stradivarius/ Cardigan: Pull&Bear / Skirt: Second Hand Modified / Booties: H&M

These photographs do not claim the best quality ever, but the weather has been so awful the last few weeks that outdoors ones are close to impossible! 

Moving on from the lack of light in my apartment, I have some interesting new finds to share with you. The first one being this gorgeous t-shirt I've been wearing for weeks...

I love it so much and it's great how effortless it is to incorporate it into any outfit! 
And since winter is here and a dark red lipstick is my weapon of choice this time of year, let me present you with the new Laetitia pure red lipstick from L'oreal. 

This photograph is quite misleading since the actual color of this lipstick is not even close to the one depicted here. It's a burgundy shade and it is absolutely matte! Hooray!

Ben borenn i þiss middellærd...

I am writing this in between packing my luggage and sipping some refreshing afternoon tea. I did not mention this before, but I can consider myself a proper adult now that I've been hired... I suppose! 

As of tomorrow I will be in Athens for about a month! I haven't been able to visit Greece for two years now and I am truly excited, even though I will be there on a business trip. I hope I will find the necessary time to have some fun and walk along the long forgotten roads of my youth.

Outfit related, I'm trying to feel as comfortable as I can now that I have to move around an office for eight hours a day! This one is partially made out of H&M Divided pieces. I just love their clothes so much I think I will be dead without them! ^_^

Since today I had some free time in the morning, I decided to pay a visit to my favourite bookshop! I am so glad I need since I came across two amazing books! The first is a Medieval Book of Days and the second is a complete collection of the Kings and Queens of Britain.

The Book of Days is a lovely illustrated imitation of a Medieval Book of Hours (prayer book). I could not help myself from revealing as much as possible from its lovely pages to you. Still, I believe I did not even capture half its beauty in these pictures...

The second one I mentioned is an encyclopedia of all the kings and queens of Britain. I confess I am quite obsessed with British monarchy and this beauty is like honey for my soul!

The book is filled with pretty paintings of all the monarchs and I think I spent half of my day browsing through its pages! 

This is goodbye lovelies! I will be away for a month and I do not know whether or not I will be able to update you in the meantime. Still, I am quite positive I will! Kisses!
