serendipity

Emerson polka dot dress (best spent $19 ever!), Oasap bag, Rubi flats, Forever New belt, Sportsgirl hat and handmade flower wreath

Yesterday afternoon was glorious photo-taking weather so I made the most of it by wearing a very colourful outfit! I'm so in love with Autumn; warm pyjamas, hot chocolate with marshmallows, scarves, berets and gloves, hot water bottles and cozy nights in. This winter is going to be beautiful, I just know it! Lots of good things have been happening this week (wonderful things that happen unexpectedly) like getting an extension on my three thousand word assignment religion assignment, an old man calling me 'sweet Maria' as he drove off after I took his lunch order, pretty stationery packages coming in the mail and (yippee!) the arrival of a long-awaited queen bed on Friday! Even better, it didn't cost me a cent. Friends of ours were cleaning out their spare bedroom and it just so happened they thought of me (updated room tour coming soon). I'm also going away on an Art camp with Izzy on Friday and we're going to have a blast.

I've been really trying to live by this quote: "Everyday may not be good, but there's something good in everyday". It's been helping me a lot, especially because my acne medication has been giving me grief. It's good to focus on the positive!
I hope you are all having a wonderful week so far! What do you think of my new blog design? I love it and am so pleased with how it turned out! It's still getting updated so just bear with me for now! :)

I came here to check the new post and I was like 'wow' when I saw the new blog design.
I feel so bad every time when I see pretty blog (just like yours) and I'm thinking that mine is really simple and not pretty :(
But I still love you, your posts and the whole blog :)

I LOOOVE the blog makeover, Maria. It is so you!

Your dress is gorgeous! Anything with polka dots has me sold...but the price is even better.

The quote is a great one to live by, I have been trying to live by such a perspective lately too.
