Weekend Mix

Aaand officially I'm on holiday (and unemployed, for that matter, but that's fine, for now)! Which means I've got plenty of time ahead to enjoy summer, starting with my trip to Romania, in one week. Until then I'll be around the house, enjoying time off..

.. reading a nice magazine (I only get Glamour UK, though I hate having to pay 5.70 EUR for it.. international magazines are always super expensive!)..

.. playing with Pickles, who will be thrilled to have me home every day, for a while..

.. finally putting my closet (accessories included) in order..

.. and whatever else comes up that needs attention.. now I've got the time..

Have a good weekend!

New Hair

Well.. it's not that new.. it's still mine, but a bit shorter.. again, one of those I want this right now decisions.. so chop-chop back to the messy bob which I kind of missed. I did try to grow my hair, but in the end I think I have to finally face the fact that I'm just not a long hair person, no matter how much I like it on others. And that's that. I'm pleased with the result, how else, since I went to the most expensive salon hubby did it all.. truth be told, I don't think I'll go to a salon any time soon, since he does such a good job and never cuts more than I want! Have a good, sunny weekend everyone! Cheers!

The Fairy Tale House

Now be honest, wouldn't you want to live in it? It's so cute! It's the Moomin House, and you can go check it out if you're visiting the  Moomin Village in Naantali, Finland.

Beauty Post Nr. 3

Though I'm on a self-imposed beauty shopping break, last Friday I popped into a shopping mall, to have dinner with hubby after work and as I couldn't help myself, I grabbed 2 nail polishes, one of which you can see below (price: 3.65 EUR). All of a sudden I'm into coral and orange, be it nail varnish or lipstick. Which is funny, not too long ago I was into pink/red only. NAILS seems to be the name of the brand, and it says on the bottle it's produced for Seppälä shops. I can't see a name, there's number 2 on the bottom, but I'm not convinced that's the shade nr., so I can't give too many details on the color itself. It has a big brush, it's a bit shimmery and glides well on the nails. I applied 2 coats, base underneath and top on.. top.

Irish Landscape

Online Petition - Place Sophie In A SAFE Environment!

Although my blog is destined to photography, this is not a strict rule of mine, hence sometimes I posted funny videos, beauty posts or tags. Never a petition, never a lobby. That is, until now. This case makes me SO sad and SO angry that I decided to help (at least try) the only way I can. I know it's not the only case in the world (unfortunately), but somehow this one keeps coming back in my mind. I don't know how I had the heart to read the mother's diary, it's shocking, disgusting and terrifying, be warned! But a short summary of the case is written on the online petition, so you can skip the horrifying details in the diary. 

I'll leave you check the link below, you can even sign without giving your full name, you can probably even put an alias, no need for registering or making an account. Takes less than a minute. I don't know if this helps at all, but at least there's a hope and it shows people's support. And if someone from Austria can help further somehow, even better.

Summery Feeling

I'm in a very summery mood today, and actually have been these past few days.. the weather helps enormously, it's been sunny and hot lately, so we've transitioned from freezing to roasting, but I like it this way (I've finally moved from jeans to dresses, which is unusual for me, I haven't worn a dress since.. forever! Though you can't see it properly from the photo, the one I'm wearing is this). It's the last month of employment in the company I'm currently working for, so I'm sort of taking it easy, my mind away to the summer holiday.. 35 days to my trip to Romania, and a week of holiday in Finland before that. Happy days to look forward to! Have a good week ahead everyone!

Happy 1st Of June!

Don't know about you, but I'm celebrating the International Children's Day today! Of course, nothing that special, but I did treat myself to a pedicure in the morning, we're now bbq-ing, and earlier I've been watching cartoons, namely Mihaela, a series that we used to watch when we were kids, during the communist era in Romania. What better choice, since my real name is Mihaela and I have a dog! Speaking of, as we don't have children, we got a "toy" for Pickles, a huge chewable bone which he has been guarding since noon (now it's past 5PM), he barely moved away and murrrss the second we step closer. Such a treasure! Have a good weekend, you all!
