This is why dreams can be such dangerous things: they smolder on like a fire does, and sometimes they consume us completely.



Oh wait.. is not Halloween?
I should post something more floral and colourful
or something more season appropriate?


No! I refuse to accept that summer is coming!!!!! Nope, nope, noopee!!
I don't like the heat, i don't like the hot sun, i don't even like spring anymore 
(not that nowadays we enjoy spring). 


For me, and for this poor little blog, it is going to be Halloween 365.
Embrace yourselves my lovely friends...Winter is coming again... at least in here!
I I have banned summer from my page, officially :D


For the rainy days or when i want to scare the children, 
i grab my Halloween bag, a special gift from a special lady across the Atlantic!


I hate beer but the little voice inside my head told me to buy it.
This was a bit good buti would rather drink sake.


New and most favourite shoes ever!!
I got them in a huge discount sale this February. 
They are pretty and comfortable!


New ring for 0.50 euro. Is it a monkey's skull, is it a human's skull? 
Is it a skull in general? Who knows...


Top favourite movie Memoirs of a Geisha (2005).
The book came to my life a few months ago when i found it 
in a bookstore for only 5 euros. (The past few years, 
i'm having the best luck on finding cheap books!)


Memoirs of a Geisha is a historical novel by American author Arthur Golden, 
published in 1997. The novel, told in first person perspective, tells the fictional story of a geisha
 working in Kyoto, Japan, before and after World War II.


 Powerful book. The language is simple, 
the writer paints a very clear picture of the time and place, of people and their emotions. 
It's not a book for you to learn about the glorious Japanese culture. 
You are only scratching the surface, a surface written by a western author.
Yes it has some flaws here and there, but overall, it is a gorgeous effort.
So glad i found it, so happy i was able to read it!!


“Grief is a most peculiar thing; we’re so helpless in the face of it. 
It’s like a window that will simply open of its own accord. The room grows cold, and we can 
do nothing but shiver. But it opens a little less each time, and a little less; and one day we 
wonder what has become of it.” ― Arthur Golden, Memoirs of a Geisha


“Occasionally in life we come upon things we can't understand, 
because we have never seen anything similar.” ― Arthur Golden, Memoirs of a Geisha

  2. I think Halloween all year is a perfect idea! It's autumn in Australia, so it's easy to be in the Halloween mood for me right now. ;D

    1. Haha Halloween is indeed an all year long thing! I need to apply it to my blog as well :D
      I don't like summer at all, you are so lucky you are having autumn in your country!

  3. Down with summer!! Let's stay huddled up in our rooms with many fans and books! (Though summer nights are lovely if they're not too hot. We'll just be nocturnal.)
    I bought Memoirs of a Geisha (the book) recently at a thrift store, though I've yet to read it!

  5. I'm very thankful we've moved even closer to the mountains where it hardly ever gets above 20C. That's plenty hot enough for me, thank you very much. :)

    1. I wish i could do that too. Here in the city is really hot during summer (it can get up to 38 degrees). It would be awesome to be able to live close to the mountains - even all year long, i wouldn't mind, i adore winter. You are extremely lucky!!!
