Hi y'all and happy Sunday to you!
Well, August went by in a blur! Home, Sweden and start up at university have made my month very eventful.
That transpires in my Insta account, where I'm fairly more active than I am here at f&f at the moment.
Speaking of Instagram, I've tried to "up my game" lately and mostly post interior shots from my home
- that, combined with hashtags (( which I normally hate but now have come to love )) has paid off!
So if you miss me - as I am sure you do (( haha )) - you can always find me over at Instagram.

You can find me on Instagram
under the name

DIY: Polkadot Wall

Hi guys!
Since I'm a little too tired to take pictures and sit down and write a post about them today, I thought I'd share this cool DIY instead:

This fantastic DIY comes from Maiju over at My 2Hand Life.
Why not try it for yourself? I would do it, but unfortunately my walls
are already covered in pictures, cuttings, postcards and light chains. Oh well, maybe next time, yeah?

Have a wonderful day

Life Lately. Update: First week at University

Hiyah all!
Well, it's been a little while since last and there's a good reason for that.
You see, last Monday I started at University - Roskilde University Center or "RUC" as we call it (( I know, I feel so fancy calling myself a "RUCer" haha )) and it's just been a blast.
Although term starts on September 1st, this week and next week is the so called "Rus period" which means that all the newcomers or "Ruslings" as we are called, get to know the facilities around campus. We also do a lot of social activities so that we can get to know each other. There are about 130 people in my class, and so far I haven't even talked to half of them, haha.
But the people are awesome; everybody's so nice and positive and very open to meet new people.

However, it is exhausting! Everyday we have activities from 9 - 4 and then we have the option to stay afterwards and maybe grab a beer and just hang out. But since I'm still getting over my cold from last week, I have't really been staying after 4. I even had to stay home Wednesday and yesterday, Friday, because I'm still trying to bounce back from my cold. It sucks staying home, but I really wanna get well again.
You see, next Wednesday we have our "Rus trip"; from Wednesday to Saturday we'll all be going to Lolland and staying in an old camp spot. It's gonna be really fun, so I hope I can bounce back from my cold and be ready for a new and exiting week.

But yeah, since Uni is already taking up a lot of my time, my intention with this post was actually to inform you that f&f might go back to be kinda quiet for a while - at least until I settle into some every-day routines and habits for this new adventure.
But yeah, I'll try to update as much as I can, so just hang on and check the Facebook page for updates.

Otherwise I hope y'all had a great Summer and are enjoying this early Fall we've been having.
See you when I see you!
PS: If you miss me ((haha)) I'm still very active over at Instagram, where I post a lot of interior pictures from my home - so if you miss that, then head over and find me under the name NATMADELEINE

The first and only picture I've managed to take this week at University.
This was our first every lecture, and even though we were sitting in the "Small Auditorium" 
and there was no space to move at all, it was still a really fun and interesting experience!

Elsker koppen ((in love with the cup))

When I was on holiday in Sweden, my mum and I went out shopping one day.
I found this cup ((or maybe it's more of a mug?)) in a store, and I just couldn't resist buying it.
I drink a lotta coffee, and I always find that mugs//cups are too small for my coffee needs.
This cup is just the perfect size for me - huge, and room for half a liter of coffee!
So this is now my new favourite cup for any hot liquid.

How do you enjoy your coffee or tea?
