Cutest little cowl I ever did see!

Maria from the North Way Studio, an awesome little Etsy store, sent me a gorgeous, super soft 100% merino wool cowl to try out and review. Now, a cowl is not an accessory that I usually would have chosen for myself, but I've found that it's expanded my wardrobe possibilities greatly! When Maria contacted me and asked if I'd like one, I fell in love with this particular lilac patterned one:

 and although I don't usually wear scarves or cowls, I decided that  I would give it a go. And I'm so glad I did! For one, it's been incredible on my early morning commute to university - its such an easy thing to throw on to keep me warm (and to sneakily fall asleep into - it's a really early morning commute). Also, it looks awesome with my new lilac hair! I've had so many compliments on how well they go together! I'm so super happy with it.

So, I have concluded that Etsy store owners are awesome. Maria is the nicest, friendliest girl (and a super talented knitter!), and the package was wrapped so nicely and came with the cutest card!

I mean, how sweet is that?

Well Maria, you've sparked what I'm sure is going to become a dangerous addiction to Etsy stores. After my super positive experience with the North Way Studio, I'm going to be going back to Etsy again and again and again!

As soon as I received this in the mail the other night, I threw an outfit together around it and rushed outside to take some photos before the light completely disappeared:

But, I wasn't able to get very good photos, so I went out again this morning and took some more photos for your viewing pleasure. Enjoy!

  3. Very cute! Your hair is looking fantabulous young lady. Has it become very damaged from the bleach? If it has I can't tell from the photos, it looks so soft and purrrrrrdy. Hope you've been well Annika!

    1. Naw thanks :) No, it's actually feeling pretty soft and healthy! I'm not sure how, it's been bleached 5 times now. I guess I just did it right somehow, haha. Thank you, I hope you've been well also!! And your hair is recovering from your bleaching adventures as well :)
