I am currently sitting on the sofa, it is raining outside and we are watching Hocus Pocus. What a coincidence, am I right sisters? 😉
We are halfway through October and what better way to get in the Halloween spirit than watching all the right movies. I am not a huge horror fan because all the hardcore movies creep the life out of me but thankfully there are a ton of cute and low-key frightening movies to watch.

We already watched a few and I can´t believe how great they are year after year. Make yourself some popcorn or your favorite drink and have a nice evening.
If there is something we have learned this year it is to live in the moment as nobody knows what happens next and a cozy and relaxing night in to distract from the current events is much needed from time to time.
How in the world is my sweet little baby already a half year old. I can not believe how fast time went and I am afraid that in another blink of an eye she is turning one. But let´s not get too dramatic (plays sad music and watches newborn videos of her baby on phone) and share what has happended this month.
Emilia´s 6 month update
Our biggest milestone this month has been introducing our sweet little girl into solids. She has eaten carrots, pumpkin and sweet potatoes so far and hasn´t been the greatest fan of anyhting. I recently introduced her to greek yoghurt and some mashed fruits and went a little better but she still is very spectical and eating with a spoon is still pretty new to me.
I think she is starting to crawl very soon cause she gets up in position but lays down soon after cause the doesn´t know what the next step is.
And we got a tooth, one little tooth. It came out 2 weeks ago and sleeping has been horrible since. The newborn stage was nothing in comparison with this but it is so worth it. She gets sweeter by the day and has such a sunny personality.
We do have some skin troubles. Dry and red spots that come and go but don´t stay away. I have tried several lotions to make it better but still at the process of finding a good one that helps to solve the problem. I had eczema as a child and I am afraid she is going to get that too.
Emilia has several favorite toys she loves to play with and that includes our remote control, Playstation controller and phones. Maybe it is the lights taht makes her so addicted to these or that we are using them all the time and she wants to have these too.
Sitting hasn´t been that good cause she just isn´t interested in sitting up by her own but we are practicing a little every day.
She has outgrown her Maxi Cosi so I got a permanent car seat for her this week and it made me so sad cause she it growing up so fast.
don´t forget to shop the last hours of the famous Amazon Prime sale. I have to be honest I was a little disappointed by this years offers. There was only one thing I really wanted and that wasn´t on the list so I mainly shared what I got the last years in yesterday´s post. I only bought diapers as the deal is really good.
I love Fall and by now everybody who reads my blog might have recognized that. There are tons of trends appearing every year but I am embracing my own top 5 trends this year.
I am so happy that bootcuts are back in style. To me this is the most flattering denim style out on the market. Creates incredible long legs and thin thighs. What more do you want?! I really am tired of skinny jeans so this is definitely a very nice welcome.
The white boot trend hit us last year and is at its peak this year. The selection is amazing and the amount of bloggers sharing white boots is insane. I personally was hesitating to wear snow white booties not only because of how bad the weather can be but also because I didn´t like the look but I found two pairs of beautiful creme colored pairs that I have already worn a ton.
I have never been a over the top jewelry person. I love my statement earrings and most of the time that´s all I need but the necklace layering trend has got my whole attention. Experimenting with different lenghs and types of necklaces is great and I enjoyed it a lot. I am planning on sharing what looks good in a separate post and how I like to style these.
My official Fall and Winter shirt. I love everything with a turtleneck. It´s just so cozy and seasonal appropriate plus looks always sleek. The creme one I am wearing in this post is from H&M and I probably own it in every available color because it is this good. They offer a ton of colors plus different prints. Very stretchy and hold up well plus great for layering.
Hats haven´t been as popular as this year for a long time. I see them popping up everyhwere in all colors and a ton of different shapes. I love my hats and wear them all the time I get a chance to. Rounding-up your look with a hat definitely add the special something plus it saves you on bad hair days and it protects you from the crazy autumn weather.
Do you have any trends you love to wear for the upcoming season ?
it is finally here. A little later than the years prior but this year everything has been different so why not Prime Day too. I wanted to share my picks from the last years and what I am buying this year.
What is the Amazon Prime Day and how does it work
It is basically two full days of thousands of great offers. Normal items can be hugely discounted and there are also a bunch of lightning deals going on which means picked items are available at a set contingent for a short amount of time for a very low price.
How to shop Prime Day
I would definitely make a list of items you plan on purchasing and look if they are discounted otherwise your cart can get expensive really fast. I always keep some items on my wishlist during the year and have a look at them if they are included in the sale.
My Top Picks
So that´s it from my side covering the Amazon Prime Day. I just wanted to share things we already own and or know from others how great they are. I didn´t cover fashion here as it is a huge section and you have to sort through by yourself as I don´t know anything about the quality and fit of items.
