"You're something beautiful, a contradiction"

Sorry for the bandwidth problems darlings! I underestimated the number of views the blog gets and Photobucket is being very annoying!


Spent between Starbucks, panic attacks and oh-so-boring classes. Life in Med School, can you take the glamour?

"Just add Valium." ;D

sweater, jeans: Mango, top: Gap, booties: Nine West.


Left home at 7:30 and got back at midnight. Still more or less worth it! It went like this: Histology, Starbucks, subways, the longest Anatomy course ever, Tae-Bo class, theater, tea and bed. Coincidentally, today consisted of sleeping!

My girls :)

The play was nice. It was even nicer that I got to take photos!

Midnight tee with a lovely girl. Breath of air after water. She knows what I mean :*

"I'm just a teenage dirtbag baby, listen to Fall Out Boy, baby, with me"

The charming and stylish Dapper Kid tagged me for the game Show Me Your Blog Spot.

The rules are as follows:

1. Once you are tagged, post a picture of where you blog.
2. Feel free to tell us a little about your space, or explain certain items in more detail. Or not.
3. Link back Daddy Likey's original post.
4. Tag five other bloggers to show their blog spots.
5. If you are tagged and do not participate, you will become allergic to cabbage.

As I really love cabbage and because it would be a bore to be allergic to it, I guess I have no other choice then to show you all how I blog, eh? ;D


My desk is the place where I spend most of my time at home, curled up in my blue chair. My trusty PC is the link between my dull little life and the charming, exciting and stylish blogosphere.

This is the first thing that comes into view when you look at my desk. I am usually there, with either a glass of water (I drink about 3 liters of it a day) or a cup of warm tea, depending on my mood. Or, if sleep is strong, I usually stick to my cans of Diet Coke. We all need some sort of addiction, no?

My photo "wall", which has just been redecorated last weekend. That PR advertisement, Natasha Poly, Gustav Klimt, love and my university timetable... what more inspiration can a girl want?

I have this little shelve on the right side of my desk that houses some of my make-up and body lotions. I also have a White Chocolate Candle that is used less for burning and more for storing perfume samples.

I collect tickets. Train tickets, plane tickets, movie/concert/theater tickets. I sometimes write little things on the back of them, words that I associate with that night or that trip. It's maybe my way of holding on to memories, I guess :)
I also collect rosaries. I always, always make sure I buy a rosary from every country I visit. I currently have one from Notre Dame, one from Westminster Abbey, two from Basilica di San Pietro (two different holidays spent in Rome), one from Stephansdom in Vienna and one from
St. Vitus Cathedral in Prague. I plan on collecting a lot more!! :))

My mom bought me these necklaces when she was in Madeira last summer and I have them hanging from two of the candles on my bookshelf.

A woman figurine that I use to hang some of my jewelery and accessories from. This is where I usually hold my favorite pairs of earrings and headband!

I LOVE books and the thing I wanted in my room when I decorated it a few years back was a big bookshelf and I got my wish :D I also have a huge one in the living room so this is the one where I keep my favorite books mostly. Like I said before, the worst part of being in Med School is that is seriously limits the time I spent reading. Sigh.
Most of the jewelery boxes and toys here are gifts I got. I love to have them on show even though I am so running out of space!

I love sheep, I think they're such cute and silly, fluffy creatures! I also keep every card I get and I am planning on making a collage with them soon! (And oh god, please ignore the Dan Brown books, it was a phase :))))

Hope you enjoyed this little peek into my life :*

"Rorschach's Journal: October 12th 1985. Tonight, a comedian died in New York."

I am so sorry for being slightly missing in action this week but it has honestly been a boring, tired and slightly annoying week. Except for one lovely night that involved too much wine and the perfect hug, life has slowed down a little bit around here.

Thank god for weekends, huh?


Yesterday (Saturday):

It was the first day of the week spent having fun. Well, having fun without the help of wine anyways. It involved eating too much:

And finally seeing Watchmen:

Okay, so the thing you need to know about me is that I am a geek, especially when it comes to comics. So of course this means that any movie made after a comic book will have me bouncing around like a kid on sugar crack and Watchmen is no exception. I spent last weekend reading the graphic novel and the weekdays e-mailing my girls anything and everything related to the movie so of course this day was spent at the movies!

I absolutely loved it, as you can see. The acting was great, the special effects were breathtaking and I am so amazed on how true the movie was to the book. The fangirl that I am squeed and gasped and laughed and loved it so much.

Of course my favorite character is Rorschach because we is absolutely insane, completely badass and surprisingly right in his weird view of the world.
Favorite quote: "None of you understand. I'm not locked up in here with you. You're locked up in here with me."

And who can forget our favorite smart blonde man, Ozymandias, played by the charming and cheeky Matthew Goode.

I loved the oh-so-subtle way the producers tried to tell us that he is possibly gay. Possibly. Heh.

Although, I have to admit that bitch is fierce even when mingling with sparkly David Bowie look-a-likes.

Told you I'm a huge geek ;D


Today (Sunday):

Coffee with Dana and Mada and then a walk in the park with Dana. It was lovely, the sun was out and we sat on the grass having people stare at the girls with the heels who were taking photos:

Dana and I and sunshine!

I found an acorn :))


I am really enjoying every ray of sunshine here!

Watchmen earrings. In case you ever doubt my geekness :D

dress: Mango, belt: thrift, booties: Replay Jeans.

"Coming home after a long, long walk; One thousand stories and soon there's more"

Chocolates and school notes. Welcome to my week.


I sometimes feel like I'm standing still and the whole world is shaking around me. It's unnerving to say the least. And I'm not sure what's scarier, this or the fact that when it all stops moving I'll be too dizzy to hold still and end up falling to pieces. Hopefully next week will be better or there will be someone around to stick the bits back together.


Thank you everyone for the lovely sweet comments on the last post. All you guys rock so much, I am such a lucky person to have such great readers as you all!!

The past week has been a bit off for me. I'm still surprisingly positive though and I need to be because I'm doing that work for more than myself right now. Hoping (and actually knowing) this next week will be better! Until then, hope all you amazing, beautiful and intelligent girls out there have an amazing International Women's Day because we all deserve it ;D


The only good thing about that day was my make-up. So lets just focus on that, okay?


Unofficially, our very first day back at uni after our exam session and holiday-that-wasn't-exactly-a-holiday. The morning was spent running after Starbucks and then skipping some courses. The evening was spent watching Scrubs.

Andy's & my shoes.

Andy at a time when we were both thinking it would have been better if we had some more coffee and less uni.

Sitting at our favorite window. I was not feeling too photogenic at that moment in time.

Irina joining us and her coffee after class.

This is my happy face. Really!

top & sweater: Mango, boots: Nine West, bracelet: Parfois, jeans: Mango.


It was a too early morning. I had gone to sleep at 3 am that night after coming home late from the movies. I saw He's Just Not That Into You with friends and really enjoyed it. My girl crush on Jennifer Connelly just grew and grew!

Anyways, waking up early was worth it as I met up with my friend Roxana and we took a little field trip. You see, we found out that the Arch of Triumph we have here was open for tourists so we decided that it needed visiting.

The view from up. The city looks even weirder than normal. But the air was fresh after a downpour and the noise didn't reach us up here, so everything felt calm and it felt like my thoughts finally found a slot in my brain where they could rest.
I needed that.

Me and my dark-circles enjoying the view.

Roxana :)

Our bags wanted a photo too and how could we ever refuse?

The only other people up there with us were an elderly couple.

Self-timer is the best invention after the camera!

Can we please stop and stare at Roxana's shoes for a moment? Thank you!

And a view from back down. The day seemed to be brighter after that so I think this was a weekend well spent :)
