“Autumn is a second spring where every leaf is a flower”

“Autumn is a second spring where every leaf is a flower”

Fall, my favorite time of year. Leaves are painted into fifty shades of red, brown and yellow. The cool air is refreshing and the smell of roasted chestnuts, pumpkin soup  and damp wood are indulgingly nostalgic. It’s also the time of cute hats and cozy knitted sweaters, leather long-sleeved gloves and faux-fur coats.  The perfect fall outfit to go for a long walk in the woods.

When the sun is shining, what better way to spend your time than to be out in the woods? The fresh blush on your cheeks being one of the many perks.  When it rains, what better way to spend your time than to sit back and relax in front of the fireplace with a good book and a hot chocolate? Cozy is no longer an adjective, but a state of mind.

Fall reminds me that everything can change. That transition is not something to be afraid of, but something to look forward to. Fall captures unspoiled beauty and the seasonal changes will be the memories of a lifetime.

The man I would like to kiss: It’s Mr Darren Criss

The man I would like to kiss: It's Mr Darren Criss

Here is my message to all those men who don’t give a crap about fashion: Clothes make the man. Naked people have little or no influence on society. (Mark Twain was such a wise guy!)

So p-leeeaaase, burn all those hooded sweaters, worn-out sneakers, and boring t-shirts and add a touch of glam to your wardrobe!

Just look at Glee-star  Darren Criss for inspiration. There is simply nothing he cannot pull off: bow ties, suits, bold colours, funky sunglasses, …

And besides, the entire female population LOVES him! So if you all go shopping now, we may come to love YOU as well!

Tonight begins the last season of Gossip Girl, and although some girls may not want to admit it, but we will all miss the show once it’s gone. Simply because it is the best teen drama EVER! It is about scheming, lying and backstabbing. It’s about sex, heartbreaks and ridiculously hot guys. But the two best things by far about Gossip Girl are Blair Waldorf and her wardrobe. Blair Waldorf is bitchy, bossy and vain with a soft spot for classic movies and Audrey Hepburn. She always looks perfectly polished and sophisticated and has an endless love for handbags, collars and bows.

And she NEVER EVER EVER wears jeans!
