Daisy Update (3)

Hi everyone!

So it's been over a month since I last did one of these and it's actually quite shocking, cause I really thought it'd been only two weeks or something like that...
But let me start by saying I had a wonderful two weeks off from work and interships over Christmas break, just relaxing and reading and drinking lots of tea :) And cleaning up a bit, cause seriously, I hadn't been folding laundry for a LONG time. You know how it goes, you need the drying rack for a new batch and the one that was on it gets thrown over a chair cause you'll 'fold it in a minute'. Yeah, doesn't happen.

Me and my friends from high school had a blast on New Year's Eve going to a bar and hanging out! It's such a shame we don't do stuff like that more often, cause I really love spending time with my girls :)

I tried to plan a Christmas/New Year's dinner with my friends from college, but we don't seem to be able to find a day we can all make it :( But instead I had a high tea with two of them last Sunday cause we didn't want to wait for another month before doing something together. And when we discovered the shops were open that Sunday, we of course went shopping before getting to the lovely food! I got two pretty bags on sale and I'm so happy with them! And yes, obviously I needed them... I also got two pairs of earrings and two cardigans. It seemed to be the day to buy stuff in pairs ;)

One of my bags, only mine is greyish instead of black. Can you see the flower attached to it? :)

I've started a new internship this Monday and so far it's been great! It's at a dermatology outpatient centre and I've been learning a lot and seeing lots of patients, so yeah, good internship! Friday I had half a day off cause there wasn't enough to do for all of us and I think this will probably my last unexpected day off ever. So I made sure to treasure the moment!

I was really tired on Friday as I need to get used to getting up early again, also one of my friend's turned 25 on Wednesday and of course I stayed at her place too long playing SingStar! I totally rocked it, though it's NOT pretty, cause I can't sing to save my life, but we had so much fun!

On bookish news: I've been buying SO MANY of them. Seriously, about a week and a half ago I placed an order for 12 books. One of them has already gotten here, the rest are either on their way or pre-orders. I totally pre-ordered Pandemonium and Fever in hardcover, cause I knew I wouldn't be able to wait for them to be released in paperback and I NEED those books! The wait is slowly killing me.

Readingwise I haven't been doing so great. I have already read 9 books since the start of 2012, but only 2 of those were 5 star reads (Under the Never Sky and Touch of Power, they were AMAZING!) and three were 1 star reads. I don't know what's going on, but I keep reading books that don't really work for me and it makes me sad. But today I finished a 4 star read, so hopefully I'm back on the right track.

Also, I want to give a shoutout to Alexa and Jana for being my bookish sisters and cause I love talking to them on Twitter and if you don't read their blogs you should totally check them out!

So, that's about 4 weeks of business summed up. Let me know what you've been up to!


  1. Very nice the side panels and colors.


    Meanwhile.....Book Review and also a Giveaway on my blog if you care to stop.

  2. You have been very busy!!!
    that's great!

    And YAY for good intership!!!

    Im sad to hear about the 1star reads but the other two sound really good! ;D

  3. I'm glad you like your internship! And that's such a cute purse! I love shopping :-)

    And GO YOU for already reading NINE books! I think I've finished 2 so far this year... very sad. My reading has been so off lately.

    Hope you're having a good week!

  4. Congratulations on the internship! I'm happy to hear it's going well. And yes, share the bookish love! I think you're one of the people I definitely have a lot in common with, especially when it comes to our affinity for books, chocolate and sparkly things <3
