Gifts to mark an ending.

After three years of stressful moments, delightful achievements and altogether bittersweet feelings, I can officially call myself a graduate! It's amazing how much we strive towards achieving this goal and how happy a few words scribbled on a piece of paper can make you feel! Nevertheless, I cannot help feeling a bit confused as to what to do next...

After some hectic days I did eventually manage to submit my application for a Master's on British Cultural Studies. I truly hope to be able to call myself a school girl again coming October!

But, since I am somewhat a ghost until then, what better way to evade worldly responsibilities than to sink within the wonderful worlds of books?

I've received some of these as gifts from the wonderful Violette Baudelaire for my birthday and I must admit that I did not even possess the time to open them! This Summer however I decided to read them all, along with some other books I bought.

I'm overjoyed about a particular find though... A Jane Austen Anthology that includes four of her novels: Pride and Prejudice, Sense and Sensibility, Emma and Persuasion. The funny thing is that I already owned these novels but I could not help being fascinated by the image formed in my head... "This would look so nice on my bookshelf..."

Does that ever happen to you?

Through Roses

Summer has arrived and set its scorching eye on the town for good! As much as I hate going out during day time, I could not pass up The Queen Bee Society International Lolita Day meetup! The Queen Bee Society is the Romanian Lolita Community and even though it's a newly born project, I'm sure it will expand into a lovely one!

This was our second meetup, a much more casual one; nevertheless, all the ladies were embellished in their usual charming elegance. 

It was truly a pity that the majority of girls could not make it since it's the exam period!  The wheel of fortune finally decided to spin my way and I was able to squeeze the meetup in between my exams and thesis.

After our tea, the weather permitted us to take a walk in one of the most beautiful parks in Bucharest. It's funny how people's reactions vary when they see a bunch of ladies in fancy clothing strolling down the streets! Most of them are quite curious and fling compliments as they pass by, yet there are some that are considerably negative; something that those of you fancying an alternative style would surely understand.

All of the outfits were utterly stunning! I do not deem myself a proper lolita since it's been ages since I wore a decent loli dress, nevertheless I cannot help adjusting lolita-friendly dresses for the meetups.

Feel free to check out the community and join us! 
May you have a lovely week ahead, lovelies!

Look towards the sky.

Deciding to take a break from my latest friends, meaning Henry VIII, Anne Boleyn, Renaissance and whatnot, I grabbed my camera and headed into town with my mother. The weather has improved a lot and it is a pleasure to venture out like that in the morning.

As I often recommend, when walking on the streets of Bucharest, it is better to stare towards the sky than at your feet. Old, monumental buildings will greet your gaze, something that is impossible to notice otherwise.

I am sorry for not writing anything but all my attention has been distributed between my thesis and my upcoming exams. Two more months and I'll graduate! 

Hope you are all having a swell time! 
Back to my late friends.... ^^
