A generation which ignores history has no past: and no future.


Finally the weather started to behave like it should be, autumn! Mostly brown, dark red and orange colors around but i am not a big fan. I don't wear color in general but sometimes beautiful things don't always come into black. Purple. What can i say! It matches so much with my true love and it is one of the most magical colors in the world! Every version of it is just so amazing for my eyes!! 




My new shelf unit, a part of it, proudly possesses some of my findings over the years :)


My hand-made amethyst ring. So powerful so beautiful. 


Both beauties been in my collection for over 8 years <3


Etymology and definitions
The word 'purple' comes from the Old English word purpul which derives from the Latin purpura, in turn from the Greek πορφύρα (porphura), name of the Tyrian purple dye manufactured in classical antiquity from a mucus secreted by the spiny dye-murex snail.
The first recorded use of the word 'purple' in English was in the year AD 975. [source]


Note: I already had a post about my city [here] but this week we celebrate two events. Here some links for anyone who want to read, the first event [1] [2] and the second one [3]. 
I am so proud for my country's history and a rest in peace to all the people who lost their lives during those, and many more, events that took place in my country.

  4. We are so simillar, my whole bedroom is painted dusty pink/purple (depends on a light, but I would never call it just pink, as pink means to me barbie pink, and this is one is waaaaaay miles from it), I have white furniture, but all accents and details are black, my bed has black is covered in black, and I have black pillows and are pictures in my room are framed in black photo frames. And I do have a lot of purple things, it's a nice combination, not too dark, but dark enough. I love your shelf! I keep your blog open in a new tab and I love to look at this picture, really nice (that crystal bottle especially).
