Sequin Cross Top

Hi peeps!

Did you have a nice Thanksgiving/Black Friday/weekend? ♥

I sure have. It's been one of those weekends that are purely made out of relaxing and watching sports. It was the final F1 race of the year, and it was so much fun. Though I wish it would've rained more. But at least Sebastian Vettel won the championship, which is pretty awesome.

Anyway, now I can fully commit to schoolwork on weekends. At least, almost.

Still interested how my shopping ban is going? I haven't bought a single makeup, clothing, nail art or other "superficial" item since starting the ban. I do admit ordering a Star Wars blu-ray box for us, as well as placing a quite massive order to MUA Cosmetics, but as entertainment doesn't count - and I had promised the MUA 35% sale for myself weeks before the ban, I don't think it's that much cheating.

As many of you have spent the past few days with your families, I thought it would be nice to share some photos from the last time we visited my parents. Not quite Thanksgiving, but I think this comes close enough.

I think my parents have the best feel-good snacks ever, and I think most of my love for food comes straight from them.


Last time we went to visit them, this was the table that was set up just for us. I was practically jumping with joy when I saw this, too many delicious things at once!



Cheese, fruit, nuts... My food heaven.


And of course, couple of glasses sparkling wine. My favorite as well. My parents were laughing a bit when I was taking pictures of everything, but like always, they were very supportive.


There's simply nothing better than spending the weekend with loved ones - and good food. That weekend also included a fierce match of Trivial Pursuit, where me and mom were the top dogs. And I won, but mostly because there was so many video games questions. (Which I know, but mom doesn't.) All in all, it was a super fun and relaxing weekend.

And here's one of my outfits for that weekend. I was still thinking the weather is warm enough for not wearing jeans or such - which it kinda wasn't - so I opted for long top, blazer and tights.

Rings: Gina Tricot

Necklace: Accessorize

A simple outfit, where I was using top as a dress, and just threw a blazer on top, and thought that's an outfit. I love, love, love the sequined top, it's so very cool - and can be combined with many things. I had been looking for similar for quite a while, and was glad to find one from BlueInc in very affordable price. There's also other cool items, which I'm hoping to buy once my ban is over. ;) Also, the shoes here are on for the very first time, though I bought them, like, in August. They were surprisingly comfy to walk in, and I can tell you'll be seeing more of these babies later.

What are your thoughts about this outfit? And, how would you wear sequins this season? 

As we are now talking about holidays, especially Thanksgiving, I wanted to share these fun facts about the Black Friday (and the shopping part of it) with you. (Which is more than suitable as I'm in shopping ban, and study business, both of which make to think finance stuff quite a lot.)

Did you know...?

So it's quite amazing how much we women spend on holiday shopping - Black Friday being only one example of many. Kinda baffling, right? 

Anyway, I need to go get some things done before going to sleep, so I think it's good to stop here for this post. I'll be posting again in a couple of days - and it'll be nails, so if you like that, stay tuned!

I wish a fabulous start of the week for everyone - can you believe it's nearly December? ♥ 

Blog ya later,
