"Outfit; The break of the day"

I spent the last couple of days not being exactly aware of what day it is, eating cake with mom while watching The Devil Wears Prada, going shopping with the girls and having long conversations about what day it is and watching a truckload of movies. Good times.

Sleeping at Minnie's house tonight because we plan on watching Robert Downey Jr movies and Gossip Girl till the wee hours of the morning so we can get ready for the inevitable university start tomorrow. The excitement, can you feel? :P


I really love the striped shadows from my window blinds in the morning.

dress: dika, tights: golden point, socks: accessorize, necklace: diva, bracelets: real pearls stolen from mom & gift from my friend


Song of the Day: Kings of Leon - Sex on Fire

"Dress up for a walk in a park, darling! Rome - Days Two and Three"

What comes after days 1 and 2? Days 3 and four, of course :D

(again, sorry for the photo overload.)


Day Three:

I can't remember what the name of this church was but is was really close to our hotel and it was beautiful.

The road to the Colosseum.

I loved the actors dressed as Romans. Especially considering the fact that they all had phones!

Colosseum. Honestly, it was my least favorite thing in Rome. But I think that's just me and my complete bleh reaction to ruins (or, as I call them, rocks). I spent my childhood seeing all of them in Greece and Turkey so I think my enthusiasm died then :P

C'est moi :)

The Roman Forum. My mom went and visited that while I stayed in the nice shade, eating coconuts and dipping my feet in a fountain.

The Trevi Fountain, aka my favorite place in Rome. (We will be seeing it again because I dragged my mom to it almost everyday)

Love. The. Streets!

We stopped at another church where we saw a wedding. They both looked absolutely gorgeous!


Day Three:

What did I tell you about the Trevi Fountain? I loved it and in this day we were almost the first people there, it was a very very beautiful morning!

Couldn't visit Rome and not eat the famous gellato, now could we? It really is as delicious as they say.

Piazza di Spagna (Spanich Steps) and my mom and her pink hat.

All the high class shops wre sittuated around the Spanish Steps. Eye candy for the rich.

Ahem, narcissistic moment.

Here we are in Piazza del Popolo. My mom and I matched that day :)

Very nice little church there.

We took a detour throught the Villa Borghese gardens.

Romanian pride ;D

View from the gardens. The one day I wore an incredibly short dress was the day the wind was blaring!

Piazza del Popolo again as we came down from the garden terraces.

My favorite guy. He fell asleep as we were resting our feet and kept on sleeping even though the piazza was so loud! Wish I had that talent!


Posting will be scarce this week because life is a bit hectic and crazy right now, the weather is cold and wet and the friends are all over the place too. Wish me luck guys, and I will not be saying no to any Starbucks sent my way, just so you know ;)

"Outfit; Slip out of our shells 'cause there's no one to impress"

It takes just 6 hours of sleep to go from drunk and dancing to sleepy and in need of nothing more than a couple of movies and tea. At least it's Sunday and at least there are good movies (No Country For Old Men and A Guide To Recognizing Your Saints and Thank You For Smoking and Across the Universe, oh my!).


Last Night:

Saw people that I've known for years (from a time when you both considered each other nothing but kids) suddenly get married and start a whole new life. Feels weird and crazy happy and scary at the same time.

Dana & her boyfriend, Boti.

Mada, me & Dana :)

Mada looked absolutely gorgeous this night.

It has gotten so cold in the past few days. You can't even tell that I am freezing my ass off in this photo, can you?

lace dress: Mango, heels: Nine West, assorted gold jewels.
