Hot-air balloons

Don't you just want to jump in one of them and fly to somewhere?

Dexter time!

It has been raining a lot here lately and I was always very sad when taking Dexter out because I knew in advance I would be soaking wet when I come back home. (especially my socksies!)
Today I found the perfect solution - cute striped rubber boots. I spent the whole day out with Dexter and we had soo much fun (without the wet socks! Yay!). We jumped in puddles, fetched sticks, played with other dogs and ran around and it was such an adventure! At the end of the day Dexter was so tired that he fell asleep the moment we got back home.
I didn't know that wearing rubber boots can be so much fun! I can barely wait for our next walk in the park!

A magical place...

Have you ever heard of Jakriborg? I hadn't. And shame on us!
It's a maaagical place somewhere in Sweden and it looks just like a fairytale village. I accidentally came across some photos of it on Flickr and couldn't help myself but draw a picture!
It somehow reminds me of Hogsmeade, probably that's the reason I fell in love with the place (Note: yep, I'm a Harry Potter nerd. Although I've never seen the movies, I l-o-v-e all 7 books!).
I reaaaally want to go to Jakriborg someday. It will be winter, I will be sitting on a bench drinking hot cocoa and just staring at those beautiful beautiful houses! I will be in my own fairytale!

What's In my bag?

I've recently found the perfect little bag and couldn't wait to take some pictures of it. And what's better than a little "what's in my bag" post?
It's a real wonder that a small bag like this one can hold all of my stuff but it does!! And it looks pretty cute, too!
So, here's the list of the things I carry with me every day (from upper left to right):
1. paper hankerchiefs
2. sanitizer and some make-up :)
3. reading glasses
4. agenda
5. forest fruit orbit drops
6. matchbox
7. home keys
8. iPod
9. super warm gloves, yay!
10. wallet
11. phone
12. gum

That's it!


Yesterday me and my boy drove around town in search of a similar-looking ice-cream. I remembered I had seen it on a McDonald's billboard (sad but true!) and we headed to the nearest one, but the girl working there told us that there isn't such thing as "a cup of white cream with colourful candy topping". On our way home I saw the same billboard again (and I was pretty sure there was such a product on the picture!), so we drove to another McDonald's in search for the cute little ice-cream. This time I even spotted a kid ordering it, so I ran and ordered just the same. Sadly, it looked nothing like the picture... It was just a tiny little ice-cream with two or three smarties on top. Sad, right? So... I decided to make my own Smarties mini ice-cream (that's the name they use in McDonald's) at home and look how cute it turned out!

Bird dance

I know I haven't been blogging much lately, but I promise I'll catch up!
I've been busy with my english course, setting up dates for Dexter and his girlfriend (yep, Dexter's got a girlfriend already - Riva! How cute is that?) and writing... Although I have some essays to work on today, I took some time to draw this cute little drawing of the dancing girls. I'm also working on some other ones that I will show you soon enough :)

have an inspirational week you all!

It's thermos season!

I've always wanted to find the most simple and original Starbucks thermos and I finally did! I am so happy I've been drinking tea out of it like craaazy! It is definately something I'd bring everywhere I go! Freezing winter days, I'm not afraid! (i still need to buy me some gloves though.)

Can you guess what that is?

A good friend of ours left the country for a week or two and left his cute little pet for me & my boy to take care of. This little fella is a salamander called Happi and is the cutest thing!
I couldn't take some proper pictures because he obviously doesn't like cameras and runs away everytime i try... but you can still see his cute little eyes and funny coral-looking ears. Isn't he adorable?

Autumn... again!

I pictured the autumn weather a liiiiittle bit different. It's just waaaay to cold outside to call it autumn! (at least here!)
I have few more things to buy and my fall wishlist will be completed. One of them is scarves-scarves-scarves! I realized I have only two and need at least... Oh, I don't know - a hundred? I bet this girl here on my drawing doesn't need one... lucky her! :D

A letter to a dear friend

I have a bunch of letters to write and send out and thought it would be fun if they were written on some fancy paper. I searched everywhere for a nice set of sheets and since I couldn't find a decent looking one... I decided to draw my own!
It's only an idea in my head, but I actually might design a whole set of these, with envelopes and all... It was so much fun!
What about you, do you still send and recieve some old fashioned letters? Or do you prefer the internet to connect with those who are far away?

I know it's just the beginning of October, but I already have my top favourite songs which are so magical I just can't wait to share with you.
So, here are my October picks:

1. Najwa Nimri - Following Dolphins
2. The XX - Crystallized
3. Jose James - Blackmagic
4. Jett Valentine - Outlaws
5. KiloWatts - Enter Lily

I have to admit that since I heard numer two - Crystallized - I've put it on repeat and just can't stop listening to it! It is something you should really check out!

Have a wonderful week!

Read of the Month: October

My read of October is called "The Bus Driver Who Wanted To Be God". It's a book of short stories by Etgar Keret and it's a true pleasure to read. I've only read three or four stories and I already love them all. I guess Oberver's review is absolutely true: "Keret can do more with six paragraphs than most writers can with 600 pages."

On a Saturday afternoon

Vanilla cream, a good read and October sun = my perfect Saturday afternoon. What's your idea of a lovely Saturday afternoon?
