The one with the things I liked this week (part 49)

Temperatures are dropping, so a hot cocoa was in order. This week I received an order from Etsy shop Atéa Lane I've ordered packaging supplies from this shop a couple of times now, and Kay Elisabeth always adds some paper goodies to my order. My friend Mandy went on a shopping spree a while ago and got me some nice extra warm socks. Hooray for Mandy, and warm socks. Gift wise it was a very good week, because I also got a new cookbook.

A cooking experiment took place last weekend, not from the new book, but a recipe I pinned a while ago. Contrary to most pinned recipes, this one actually got cooked. I really had intentions to cook healthier in the new year. But when Jamie Oliver tells you to eat pasta with cream, mascarpone and parmesan cheese, you listen. At least I do.

Also, Zara started it's sale after Christmas, and it came to mind that the last addition to my wardrobe was on a day when I was able to sit outside in the sun. For at least 3 months I have been spending most of my spare time together with a blanket and hot water bottle on my couch, so I thought a little something for my closet was allowed.

    Temperature in my always summer country is likewise starting to cool down.. finally :) Although I know, the temperature in your country is way lower. When you said that you spend most of your time in blankets and cocoa.. I suddenly felt envious haha I've been dragging myself to work lately.

    Wishing you a great week ahead Marieken!
