As you're pretty so be wise, wolves may lurk in every guise.

I have been busy as a bee lately and my hands have been working magic in thread, crafting and sewing newly acquired obsessions. One of these has been lingering in my mind for quite some time and I've always wanted to be a gothy black riding hood, who wouldn't?!

Thus I grabbed my needles and my pins and I begun working on a velvet hood. I added some lace on the inside and voila, my very own mini cape! 

I believe I ended up looking more like a witch but meh, who cares, witch is always good! And speaking of witches and hoods, I have been dying for the next season of The Game of Thrones and I have been devouring book three at the moment, yet again. 

Mr. Martin is a genius and I believe one of the best authors of our time; I am sure more than half of you agree!

Next week will be quite a busy one as well and I am planning on catching up with beloved people that I have missed while I was away. 
What are your plans for this weekend?

Ancient Gods, Fairy-tales and Crepuscular Rays.

As you know I spent the last couple of weeks in Athens, my hometown if I can call it that, and although I was there on business, I managed to have tremendous fun! The air did not feel the same since it actually snowed (witch never happens!), but there is no stopping a little Bucharest girl used to tons and tons of snow each year!

What was the fun you might ask, well, we acted like proper tourists and visited the Acropolis Museum witch is beyond amazing. The light of the sun coming through the shades, resting on the displays is mesmerizing and I was taken aback by the architectural design. We spent about five hours there and we could have stayed more but we would have been locked in with the ancient gods and demons, the lovely muses and soldiers... it doesn't sound too bad but unfortunately the security people did not seem to be of the same mind.

We entered the land of Fairytale, a little dim lighted place near the outskirts of the city; a land inspired by all our childhood stories, a land of delicious treats and familiar villains and heroines.

To top it all up, good music is mandatory and Sólstafir proved to be as wonderful live as on record. I enjoyed their concert so much I cannot wait to see them again!

I am back in Bucharest now and I am trying to enjoy this weekend at home with my beloved and Luna, both of which I missed like crazy! There is no place like home they say, well I have two, and it feels great to be able to enjoy both in the same way!

Mirrored Soul

I am alive, yes under much stress but, alive nevertheless! I have been utterly absent this week due to work issues and I'm afraid I need all my charm in order to survive the next one. I hope I can charge my batteries this weekend and properly enjoy this lovely city by the light of the moon, as I should!

I will not focus on my small miseries and continue with the actual wonderful things that I managed to do this week, like spending time with my wonderful colleagues outside of work premises and spending...

I have been paying the necessary visits to the local stores and I have become wealthier in trinkets! My coin has somehow vanished and my purse grows lighter with each passing day but I regret nothing! What would Capitalism do without us women, I ask.

I am extremely happy about a certain find, some mood stone rings! I adore they way they actually seem to reflect my mood and I cannot help but sneak a peek at them whenever my fingers are on the keyboard. 

Oh, I know they only react to my temperature but please let me believe they are magical!!!

I hope you are all having a lovely weekend and not forget to believe in magic!
