MY CURRENT FAVORITE BOOK. I GOT THIS CUPCAKE RECIPE BOOK LAST
CHRISTMAS FROM MY SISTERS AND EVER SINCE I GOT HOME FROM LA I
HAVE BEEN BAKING LIKE CRAZY. NOW I AM CRAVING A BAKING BOOK
FOR MACARONS AND CAKE POPS, YUM!

ONE OF MY FAVORITE CUPCAKES FROM THE BOOK! COCONUT CAKES
WITH BOUNTY FROSTING, THESE WERE MADE BY MY MOM.

SERIOUSLY LOVING THIS NEW CLUTCH FROM VJSTYLE, YOU CAN WEAR
IT IN SO MANY WAYS FOR SO MANY OCCASIONS AND THAT'S EXACTLY
WHAT I LOOK FOR IN CLOTHING AND ACCESSORIES.

MY NIGHTTIME ROUTINE. I LOVE THIS CHANEL CLEANSING CREAM
THAT I GOT AT THE AIRPORT IN SEATTLE. I USE IT EVERY NIGHT AND
USE MY SEPHORA EXFOLIATING BRUSH THREE TIMES A WEEK.

THERE IS NOTHING BETTER THAN GETTING SOME YUMMY LOBSTER
BISQUE AFTER A WALK DOWNTOWN IN THE FREEZING WEATHER.

NEW SHOES, SEE THEM IN ONE OF MY LAST POSTS. CAN'T BELIEVE
HOW LUCKY I GOT, THEY WERE 70% OFF. LOVE THEM!

DECIDED TO BAKE ON A PARTICULARLY DULL MONDAY EVENING,
I LOVE MACARONS SO I DECIDED TO GIVE IT A TRY. IT TOOK SOME 
TIME BUT IT WAS SO WORTH IT.

YUM, THE FINAL OUTCOME! NEXT TIME I AM GOING TO DO MORE
COOKIES AND MORE COLORS/FLAVORS. I GOT THE RECIPE HERE,
IT'S SUPER SIMPLE AND IN ICELANDIC.

THE OTHER DAY WHILE ORGANIZING MY CLOSET I FOUND THIS
DRESS FROM H&M THAT I FORGOT I HAD. I WORE IT LAST YEAR
OUT FOR DINNER, SEE THE FULL POST HERE. CAN'T WAIT TO ROCK
THIS DRESS THIS SPRING, IT'S ONE OF MY ALL TIME FAVORITES.


Wow, I can't believe it's February already. Time really flies but I still feel like it was ages ago when
we arrived home from California. Not much has happened in that time, most of our time has gone in
to settling in and just getting used to being back home including spending some quality time with our
families. There is nothing better than that. In my last Instagram Diaries I told you guys that we found
an apartment in downtown Reykjavík and that we decided to take it. Well, things changed a little bit
and we decided not to take it after all. But we will be moving sometimes soon and I will tell you more
about that later when everything is ready. This week has been really amazing, just some quality time
spent with family and as you can see above I did a lot of baking. I am really into cooking and baking
all of a sudden and I love to try out new things and practice. I did some macarons the other day and
they came out so good and I was so proud of myself to actually do them all by myself. 

In the meantime you can always follow me in Instagram (@alexsandrab) and you remember
to follow me on Facebook, Bloglovin' and Pinterest as well. There's nothing like getting some 
new and amazing followers to share my inspiration with. Thank you for reading.
