Apart from that, my parents had to let go their cat Chagall after a long period of illness. Luckily he was already quite old, almost 17 years, but I knew him since I was ten, so after he was gone I didn't really have much blog-inspiration for a while :-(
Fortunately it is not all bad news though! Last weekend I went on a short citytrip to the city of Warsaw in Poland, which was a lot of fun (read all about it in tomorrow's post), and of course Christmas is coming up! No Thanksgiving for me I am afraid, as I am not American, so I already have been focussing on Christmas for a few weeks already :-P
Last week I already saw a lot of holiday gift guides on other blogs. I always love checking these out, but unfortunately a lot of the gift suggestions in those guides are way too expensive and therefore not really suitable as a gift (unless you are a millionaire of course). As I am still a student, expensive gifts for my loved ones are not really an option, but that does not mean that you can't give something really great! I love to figure out that one (affordable) thing that is just right for that particular person. Something that they will actually really enjoy.
So, to make life easier for you guys, I thought I'd share the results of all my online window shopping in a few holiday gift guides of myself! My personal favorites of this post are numbers 1, 2 and 10 of this post (God, I am totally in need of number 2!).
And last, but not least: I would love to hear what is on your wishlist this year! Don't forget to share it in the comments below!
