Remember the post where I was in love with Sarah Jessica Parker's outfit? Well, I think this love evolved into an over the knee socks obsession. People say the first step is to admit you have a problem. So here it is - I'm sharing it with you.
Aren't all these insanely cute? I already picked up a couple of pairs. My, I love autumn!

I ordered an Anthropologie catalog a while ago and I had forgotten all about it when I found it on my doorstep last week. Needless to say it got me in the mood for a lovely late summer afternoon. All I needed was dessert. So I made brownie. Here's the recipe if you are into making Friday afternoon even more wonderful.
Ingredients (click on the photo to see it bigger):
First thing you need to do is melt the butter and then mix it with the sugar and the eggs. The sugar needs to be completely melted before you add all of the other ingredients except the chocolate and the nuts. Mix it all using a mixer and then add the chocolate and nuts cut into small pieces. Put it in an oiled baking dish and bake in a preheated at 150 degrees oven.
It's really easy and so delicious! Everyone at home loved it and I made it two more times that week. My advice is to keep it in the fridge and eat it the next day if you can resist.
I got the recipe from here (it's in Bulgarian, so those of you from here might want to check it out). The only thing I changed was that I used 1 tea cup of brown sugar instead of 2 cups of white sugar. And I also used Nequik cocoa because it made it taste sweeter and I liked it much better. I hope you like it and let me know if anyone tries it! xo

Hello. Anyone out there? Blogging right now feels like walking into an attic no one has gone to in a long, long time.
Anyway, I'm back at my apartment and I'm back to school. Which means that I am also back to my old schedule. Well, not exactly because it's my 5th year at the uni and I only have one project (you can say that I'm doing my master, I guess), hence more free time. I was trying my best to stay away from my laptop this summer and you can see that I did a pretty good job at it! I am still trying to figure out my best blogging schedule though, so please, be patient with me until I get back on track. I'll try to post 2-3 times a week for now and we'll see how it goes.
Well, that's about it. I hope everyone had a wonderful summer and I'll see you soon! xo

That's what I wanna know. The weather has gone from insanely hot to insanely cold in just a few days. I love the time of year when you can walk outside with just a soft cardigan and wear cute scarves and booties. But it's just a little too early, isn't it?
I hope you're getting lots of sunshine, wherever you are.
