First of all, I want to send a huge THANK YOU to all my new followers. It is really exciting to have such a wonderful set of people peeking into my own little world. I will try to do my best not to bore to death :P
I woke up this morning at my mom's house. I got here on Friday, and have been enjoying of good quality time with her and the rest of the family that I don't get to see that often.
I called my sweetheart who stayed home and asked him about our orchids. He said they were sad since I left and I reminded him to give them a burst of sunshine. He did. This is the picture he sent me as proof.
I couldn't help but smile when I saw this picture. You just gotta love a man who loves your flowers as much as you do.
My current living arrangements are quite dull and boring. Given my circumstances, I am not allowed to be much creative when it comes to decorating my surroundings. I often roam the internet looking for amusing decoration styles, in order to feed my craving for style. Here is an eclectic decoration compilation of my latest findings...
I am a treasure hunter. I love wondering around and finding exquisite items that speak to me on a personal level.
When I pair up this little habit of mine with my acquired taste for tea, I get to make the most wonderful collection of Tea ceramics. Etsy is certainly one of the best sources for finding handmade ceramics and vintage pieces. Here I am presenting my favorites so far...
Isn't this stunning? Light blue and orange teapot with a unique, rustic shape. By FatStudio
By far, one of the most interesting pictures for a cup! It's really big... a good wake up for sure. By GlazedOver
Do you know how to spot a new soul? It is said that new souls carry an innocence with them, a naive thinking that everything is possible. Old souls, on the other hand, tend to have a somber look on their faces, a constant resignation of the way things are. New souls are light spirited. Old souls know the consequences too well.
I consider myself a new soul. I've had my share of disillusionment and grief, but yet I carry a smile with me wherever I go. I am not a happy-happy, joy-joy girl, but I do consider myself an optimist. Life is good. It certainly is.
This song is my feel-good song. I have it readily available on my playlist for an instant boost of good humor and a smile.
I have been wanting to start this blog for a very long time. Not knowing how to really get it going, I postponed it for quite a while. Today, as I was watching the morning news, I learned that a true legend has died... Elizabeth Taylor. I couldn't hold it anymore, and she deserves my writing, and my time.
I am a lover of old time fashion and glamour, and Liz has always been on the top of my favorite classic divas. I can't help but be a little bit melancholic about her death, but I know her exceptional beauty will live forever in our hearts.
Last year I read an article about her passionate love for two times ex husband Richard Burton that moved me in so many ways. To love so much, to want someone so much... it certainly made me crave a passionate love too. A love so intense that would turn my world upside down. Today I can say that I am loving as much as she did, and I am happy about that. Nevertheless, one needs to pause and savor the succulent words they both shared in the intimacy of their world:
"I lust after your smell... and your round belly and the exquisite softness of the inside of your thighs and your baby-bottom and your giving lips."
In honor to her beauty, here are some of the most beautiful pictures I collected while searching her name on the Internet.
