Meet Aria

hey beautiful creatures:)

i am consumed with games of thrones. so today i am a romantic version of aria.  fear cuts deeper than swords. allelujah, wish me luck.

after my morning walk i went to a cute place in penge, alexandra nurseries it's called. a place full of plants that too has a cafe. i loved my soy latte. one can choose to sit among the plants or sit upstairs among antique china that one can buy. 

i found alexandra nurseries through a website i am in love with, this is your kingdom which features lots of wonderful places in & around london. explore explore explore:)

I Did Not Have A Drog Problem; I Had A Problem With Reality!

 yup! that's about right.
i love all the cats of the gardens:)
my fave dress (vivetta) & beloved garden.
i am stunning.
thank god for beauty!
we are born & then we die! true or false?
prettiness! wanna be my valentine?
pink fluff = yes always
shine on beautiful creatures,
moi and some flowers

today started in the woods as usual, started book 3 of games of thrones and i am once again addiction perfection. came home and intended to dress up and take some outfit photos but the rain got to me and i decided to bake some hearty bread instead:) went to the gym and listened over & over to ulf lundell's kapten kidd, the voice of this man is beyond me. came home & finished off some laundry before heading off to franklins where i realised OMG i have nothing to say today. i am empty. not sad empty just empty. so started to go through the bank of my iphone photo library and found treasures. one certainly do come across such beauty from everywhere all the time:) thank god for that!

do what you love
do it often
life is short
live your dream
share your passion
august is soon to be over & we are back to life again in terms of routines. i love routines. i am working on the order of doing things & what to focus on come fall. i tend to be highly disorganised  so i am planning to be on top of things:) finally!

much love

Diary 255: Written On The Pages Is The Answer To A Never Ending Story

turn around and look at what you see!

“Nobody tells this to people who are beginners, I wish someone told me. All of us who do creative work, we get into it because we have good taste. But there is this gap. For the first couple years you make stuff, it’s just not that good. It’s trying to be good, it has potential, but it’s not. But your taste, the thing that got you into the game, is still killer. And your taste is why your work disappoints you. A lot of people never get past this phase, they quit. Most people I know who do interesting, creative work went through years of this. We know our work doesn’t have this special thing that we want it to have. We all go through this. And if you are just starting out or you are still in this phase, you gotta know its normal and the most important thing you can do is do a lot of work. Put yourself on a deadline so that every week you will finish one story. It is only by going through a volume of work that you will close that gap, and your work will be as good as your ambitions. And I took longer to figure out how to do this than anyone I’ve ever met. It’s gonna take awhile. It’s normal to take awhile. You’ve just gotta fight your way through.”

inspiration magic
anyone knows who photographed this cotton candy cherry perfection photo above?

these past 2 weeks has been about re-grouping myself, make plans and set goals. i guess it's been the perfect time to do just this since i have not been well and thus not been able to do much. also perfect time because we are entering fall and that to me always means new beginnings:)

A Gredelin Gräddnos Sunday

a day for cheekiness;) 

“I disregard the proportions, the measures, the tempo of the ordinary world. I refuse to live in the ordinary world as ordinary women. To enter ordinary relationships. I want ecstasy. I am a neurotic — in the sense that I live in my world. I will not adjust myself to the world. I am adjusted to myself.”

-anaïs nin

i will not adjust myself to the world
I am adjusted to myself!

i adore mademoiselle nin.

Meet The Princesse Bride Tuvstarr

why don't you do what you dream violette?

"today, i will go bare!" she exclaims. "i will carry my dress in front of me and then you will carry me on your back and show me more of the world."
"yes", says the elk, unable to deny her anything. it had been awake all night watching over the strange, white little girl on the ground, and that morning there had been tears in its eyes. it did not understand why, except it felt autumn approaching and was seized  by a longing to do battle and a desire not to be alone anymore.
