Pastels for life!

My favourite night-time accessories: French sleeping mask, frothy hot chocolate and a fabulous book. 

The paper roses on my perfume tray. Aren't they gorgeous? You can find out how to make your very own perfume display here: A Pretty DIY

Starting to write to pen friends again. I've just gained one from London!

I love this photo and was really pleased with the way it turned out after editing. Hibiscus flowers have started blooming like crazy -- it's hard not to want to take photos! The blurry background and details of the flower is so beautiful. 

Gorgeous underthings...

The cutest (and most accurate) pocket-watch around. 

Have you ever gone through that phase where you just want to escape? Travel? Soothe your wanderlust? I have that right now. All week, actually. I don't know whether it's because I'm a teenager and supposedly we're all dramatic about everything but I just want to have adventure. I want to see the world. Learn new things. Meet new people. Write everything that comes to mind. Draw what I see. I want to grow up faster, but I also want to stay my age. I want to stay comfortable but also want to explore what I am capable of doing. A lot of the time people don't understand me, but most of the time I don't ever understand myself.

And now I am off to have a really, really large hot chocolate because I absolutely positively can. It's freezing cold and I haven't even had one today. That's all the excuse I need.
P.S: This music from Anne of Green Gables is so beautiful and calming. I love it and may have clicked the 'replay' button about a million times...

Yay pastels, you're looking lovely! :) I still have that phase of wanting to run away and travel and discover millions of things, and I'm nearly 26 :p Enjoy that hot chocolate, English weather is terrible so we need hot drinks here too! xx

Ah, wunderlust, I think I suffer from that as well. I am dying to travel!

I really want to read "The help". Is it good? I watched the movie and Loved it.

Cute outfit, as always Maria!
