The mirror below was originally gold and the Eiffel Tower figurine used to be gold as well.

There haven't been many posts by me lately but I think after yesterday's little post you know why. I still try to juggle work, Master thesis, and blogging but this week I allowed myself a couple of days off to celebrate my sister's birthday and meet-up with my girls. And to change out of my boring library or work-at-home attire I trusted in bright colors to keep me energized and I can assure you, it works!

Here’s a sneak peek of the coming H&M Fall/Winter 2011 collection. It awaits you not only burgundy, camel, cognac and nude but also more glaring colors. I really like the small enamel purse and the idea of how it adds the right amount of color to your outfits in fall and winter.
If you have an affection for bold jewelry pieces, the fall/winter collection won’t disappoint you. The accessories are either decent or really chunky and richly colored.
The coming fall/winter will be anything than dreary.

White is the epitome of brightness and cleanliness and is definitely the color my dream kitchen would be! Add a nice chalkboard to write down my menus and flowers to decorate my place and I'm a happy girl.

Sometimes I think it pays off not to jump on a trend that you know won't be around for too long. These items can be considered safe, but I'd rather add intriguing details with delicate stackable rings and just the right amount of color in this glossy two-toned satchel!
