I was tagged by lovely Heart in a Cage!
What are you wearing now? I'm staying in tonight to write on my finance project so just black tights + boyfriend sweater. Warm and cosy.
What’s the last thing you read/are currently reading? "The New Basel Capital Accord". I wouldn't really recommend it.
Do you nap a lot? I love napping but unforunately my schedule doesn't quite allow it.
Who was the last person you hugged? Mon petit ami, this morning.
What’s your current obsession/addiction? Finance blogs (I highly recommend this one!) and fastelavnsboller.
Which item from your closet are you wearing most lately? A navy Zucca sweater dress.
What's for dinner? Left-overs from last night (more about that soon).
What was the last thing you bought? A Crémant de Loire and marcipan ice cream (I realize how decadent that sounds which is quite contradictory seeing I'm so broke at the moment).
What are you listening to right now? This.
If you could have any super power, what would it be? Photographic memory, though it's not really a super power.
What time do you usually get up? These days I hardly have any classes so around 9-10-ish.
What is your most challenging goal right now? Managing the workload that is coming upon me the next 3-4 months and administering my time in the mainwhile.
Say something to the person who tagged you: Hope you're having a blast at the Kings of Leon concert tonight. Looking forward to the review!
If you could have a house–totally paid for, fully furnished–anywhere in the world, where would you want it to be? Neuilly-sur-Seine would be pretty awesome. In 40 years, somewhere sur la Route du Mimosa.
Favorite vacation spot? France. Nothing else compares. I was ruined as a child.
What is your favorite item of clothing? Dresses, hands down!
Favorite pair of shoes you keep going back to over and over, even though your closet is overflowing with a zillion others: I don't have a favorite pair but I think I've worn out about 15 pairs of golden ballet flats during the past 3-4 years. It's a severe and incurable addiction.
Name one thing you cannot live without: Love and laughter.
What was the last movie that you saw? "Le fils de l'épicier". French movie, set in Provence. Cute but forgettable
What's your favourite movie(You can only name one title, it doesn't have to be your ultimate favourite but just the first one that pops into your head): Lost in Translation.
What is your favorite weather, and why? The first days of autumn I enjoy the most. Sunny but with a slight chill in the air. It's so calming for the mind.
I always end up tagging people who've been tagged already. So if you haven't, consider yourself tagged!

Plenty of things happened since the last time I checked in. Actually, more than plenty. The Kirkwoods had their first outfing. So did my ugly winter boots - at least their first (and hopefully only) this winter. I payed IKEA yet another visit and I finished decorating my apartment. Now it's just perfect and exactly the way I want it to be. Also, I got a television (Big deal! However, it still isn't properly installed). And a boyfriend. And tomorrow morning a new washer as well. Finally, I got accepted to the Washington Semester Program for next fall semester. And within the next 10 days I have to finish a seminar on risk management for my corporate finance class so I will probably not be updating again before then. But at least you know I'm alive. Photographic evidence below.
