"So rid of all your stories"

Today I found myself taking a trip down memory lane. With Bon Iver playing in the background, I can't say a few tears didn't appear here and there but it was still lovely. I have about 5 boxes filled with letters, notes, pictures, concert/ train/ museum/ theater tickets etc. I tend to go through them more than once a year so the contents are pretty much known by heart at this point.

It's hard not to wish for those days to come back.
It's hard not to think that it won't ever be that good again.

On a more cheerful note, here is another one of my favorite Tumblrs. The lovely lady works at Wildfox and that makes me very jealous! Still, the blog is not about clothes or fashion. It mostly consists of the pictures she takes and some questions from curious fans every now and then (more and more lately). I'm not sure what exactly about her pictures makes them so interesting but I always find myself setting them as my desktop background and such. They have that luxurious composition but it's combined with a feeling of something personal and it makes them seem like they're part of a dream( it's easier if you go through her archive).

To continue with another list of favorites (especially since the weekend is here), I'd like to recommend some movies:
  • The Art Of Getting By 
  • Restless
  • Like Crazy
  • Martha Marcy May Marlene
  • Last Night
I'm not really a fan of comedy films, especially if I'm alone. I really like psychological movies. You know, the ones where nothing much happens but you keep watching because you're very interested in the characters. The movies above are something like this. I've seen lots more lately but these were the ones I liked best.

The only thing that's certain is sometimes you're bound to fall. Just keep going on.

Everyone, meet my new favorite blog. Being a big fan on coffee and books, stumbling upon this little corner in the tumblr world was great. All the images have their original sources mentioned and that's another plus.

This lack of sunshine is driving me crazy. Winter seems to still have big plans for us so I'm trying my best to make it bearable. A big help in this sense is this man. Listening to his music as soon as I wake up gives me a major boost of energy. I would've said he's a kind of combination between dubstep (here and there in the background) and something indie. The internet classifies him as a soul artist though. I suppose that goes too. He can be a little bit of everything, for all my moods.
At the moment, these two are my favorite songs:



On another note, trying to be a little productive, I started looking for some DIY projects online and I found this crazy idea. Now I feel bad for not being a fan of sodas. I do plan on collecting them from now on and making myself a bracelet. They look great!

And now let me share with you some lovely Flickr inspiration:

Lots of snow outside and I'm still stuck at home all day, studying. Luckily, not for long. 
Still, while I'm here, I try my best to add a little something to make the process more pleasant. From incense sticks and whatever else to make my room smell lovely, to numberless cups of coffee and tea, breaks that include movies and TV shows and music to get some energy boosts. It's still hard to get by without a little sunshine (at least every now an then). 

Little surprises during the day seem to help too. My sister wrote me the sweetest e-mail a few days ago and now all I think about is how bad I want to visit her and get to spend a few days together.
Here are a few pictures she sent:

I miss her so!
