"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

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

Thursday:
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.

Saturday:
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 :)

Your makeup on Wednesday is like a, a, a peacock or something! I love it! Oh my goodness! Or like a mermaid or something magical.
And the coffee shop photos are beautiful.

Jen said...

Your make-up is fantastic, as are your boots! Lovely.

Happy Woman's Day too xxxx

Zmaga said...

Your make-up is AMAZING! So beautiful... I would never have the patience (or the skill) for something like that. I feel for you about the dark circles and I-can't-study-anymore issue. Hold on!

p.s. Happy Women's Day!
