 Last June we've been to Rome! It was a first for me and I fell completely in love with this small city. Although we stayed only 3 days, it was blissful and I was so happy that I still get a smile on my lips just to think about it :) I do not understand what's the big deal over Paris... Honestly, Rome was for me all that Paris is supposed to be and isn't. The weather, the food, the streets, the people! I fell head over heels for the historical capital.

My holiday was heavily "Roman Holiday" influenced, one of the cutest films ever, so for my 1st day I went for a blue pleated skirt, white shirt and striped neck scarf, haha. Just look at the buildings behind me on the first picture, they looked so much like Gregory Peck's place from the film! And that's where we were staying, in our friend's house in the heart of Rome, I was ecstatic! I also ate ice cream on the stairs and rode a bicycle in Rome! But I did not buy sandals or dance near the river, haha.

It was so much fun, I want to visit other parts of Italy next year.

London is definitely getting cold. Goodbye Autumn, you were quite beautiful this year. Hello Winter, I didn't really miss you. I am off at home today with a cold and in bed. I have a double chocolate muffin, a mug of hot milk and a pack of Lemsip by my side and I figured, "what a better day to start blogging?". It is raining outside, I'm burning my Blackberry Frost candle and watching Sex and the City season 6. I like to make my sick days moody enough. I've also updated the blog's banner. I know, how cliche, Audrey Hepburn. But I saw something similar online, thought it was really cute and decided to try making my own. I didn't know which image to put besides Audrey, she was the prettiest, so I kept the same idea. I quite like it, but I think I will grow tired of it. Maybe its too cute.

The photos above were taken by a couple of friends visiting London last month, on a day we strolled around Bricklane. I thank them, recently I do not have any pictures of myself, I just always seem to forget about registering my outfits! Hopefully, now that I am back blogging and all, this will change. I was going for a 60's look that ended up looking quite 20s as well, that was fun.

Honey, I'm home...

To think that my last post on this blog was on April Fool's day, one year and half ago, ha! I'm surprised to look at the stats and find out people still end up here one way or another! It is just amazing after such a long time of me being in silence.

I came back here 2 days ago, when I had to log into Blogger to post a comment on some one's blog. I saw my profile picture posted next to my comment, clicked on it, and followed to this forgotten blog. I thought that picture had been taken one year ago, but it just happens it was 2 years ago. Time flies, I didn't even realized it had been that long. Sure, things around me are different. I have a different job, I live in a different house, I dress differently, my hair is different... But I only realized how much these statements were true after going back on my posts. And while I was strolling through memory lane, I also realized I missed this blog. It is such a good record of myself, of the person I was at that particular time in my life. And to be honest, I felt good about me and I am glad I can go back and relive those moments through this blog. I felt that blogging is not a waste of time or just a narcissistic way of pampering ourselves. It is a photo album, it is a written record, it is a little box full of our past lives.

So, instead of creating another blog, I've decided to keep this one. This is who I am. That was me 2 years ago and this is me now. It is different, but it is all me. I accept it and don't mind other people looking into that. I am not writing for someone else. I am writing this for myself. Maybe someday I will show it to my kids and say "look that was mommy".

Let's see how this new attempt at blogging goes. 

I think I most definitely should change that header picture though.
