Cheering up.

Sorry about my last post. But I just think this is supposed to be my blog, where I can write whatever I want, whether people would like to read it or not. I don't have many readers anyway, so I usually don't worry much about it.

But I'm trying to cheer myself up, even though things have been even worse today. I have to focus on pretty, wonderful things when stuff like that happens. We all know shit happens and we have to learn to deal with it. I'm dealing with it by focusing on pretty things.

As I have said before, I'm addicted to craft blogs. And they have some of the most beautiful images ever. Oh, and so does weheartit.

So these last few days I've been drowned by beauty. And I love it.

I thought I'd share a few of the pictures I've been seen. I'm sorry I can't remember where I found them, but most of them were found via (I totally love it!)

All the pictures are somehow related to light or sparkles. They are both beautiful...

(I'm a huge London fan. I fell in love with England some time ago. Like, seriously in love.)

(Yep, Paris is a passion too. But who doesn't dream about Paris??)

(I'm hugely into nail polish lately. Don't know why, but it may be because of all the cute colors...)

I'm tired. Not fisically tired, but I really need a break. I know I had a vacation, like, until 2 weeks ago, but going on such a stressful trip is not a break. I just want to go somewhere nice, have nice people around me, and, I don't know... maybe make some new friends. Not that I don't love my friends, but sometimes I get a little tired of their lack of interest in each other's lives. I miss the time when I had five different people to talk to when I was confused, and even though nothing I said made sense at least one of them would get whatever I meant.

Growing up in my house was pretty hard, but sometimes I think it's worse now, 'cause now I not only feel bad, but most times I know why it happens, but I still don't think any of them will get it. This is actually making me quite crazy, 'cause I don't understand how anyone can feel better outside their own house, and not stand being with their family. Well, maybe I don't understand, but it happens to me quite a lot.

I have to admit I think the reason for my craziness about getting my room to be the way I dream is caused by this. I want my room to be my hiding place, whatever happens. I painted one of the walls bright yellow, I bought an Audrey Hepburn poster in Orlando, a Belle poster, my own laptop and I'm going around this tiny place trying to organize things so that one day it will be really the place I always wanted my bedroom to be.

This is my project. It is kind of a constant thing, but someday I'll turn this into the place I want...

(It was much more messy when I took this picture, but it was painting day...)

Sun effects.

I feel like that little cow from Milka bars. I have different colors today. A big part of me is brown, I have a bunch of red spots and a little white, in some of the non-affected areas.
Let me explain: I went with boyfriend and some of his friends to the beach last sunday, and for some i reason I really tought I didn't need any sunscreen. Who did I think I was?? Urgh... bad bad girl, no donut for you... So, my back, shoulders and even a bit of my belly were totally red by the end of the day. I was feeling pretty much like a little tomato... And now, I'm a cow. I'll just hope I can get back to my natural color as soon as possible. Even though that is something like "indoor white".

Changing a little the subject, I plan on finishing a little embroidery project I have by tomorrow. I saw this on a totally cute blog and now I have absolutely no idea what to do with it...
Now I have to really start studying, because last week I found out the exam I was waiting for will be in a week and a half, and that's not much... I'm getting a little freaked out, but I still believe everything is gonna be fine and I'll have a new internship in no time!

Ash wednesday.

I feel like a really happy child. Ever since we got home from our trip to orlando, two weeks ago, I had been planning on buying a cup of Nutella and eating it with Pringles. Yeah, it sounds kinda weird, but I assure you it tastes wonderful... I tried it when we were in Orlando, and loved it!! Well, today I bought Nutella. Maybe tomorrow I'll get some Pringles when I go to work (btw, working during carnival sucks...). Yey! A taste of perfection!

Anyway, I'm really enjoying this night at home watching, Glee, "Yours, mine and ours" and maybe doing a little embroidery later...

PS: I really need to get some exercise. I literally spent the last 5 or 6 days hanging around on the couch, watching tv and eating.

Ok, I admit: I have a problem. Maybe an addiction.
I love craft. But I mean love, really love. Even as a child I would love any sort of craft I saw on tv, or on fairs... Maybe it's all grandma's fault, since she was the one who really raised me and she was not only a really good seamstress, but also knows how to knit, crochet and quite a few other things.
But anyway, now I am getting kinda obssessed with craft blogs. So pretty much every time I turn on my computer I "HAVE TO" check everything new every single blogger I like has posted.
But tell me, is it possible not to like any of these??

Oh, well, I guess I'm gonna have to learn to live with it... Maybe it' not that bad, huh?

PS: boyfriend just graduated from college last thursday. Now he is officially a masters student. Pretty scary if you ask me, but I'm soooo happy for him...
