Perfume Corner

I am a maximalist. The very definition of it. I am the type of person who can never run out of anything, so I buy everything is advance and end up having twice as many things than what I actually need. I also buy things just because they look nice, because someone recommended them to me, because I was just passing by and something caught my attention.. You name the reason, I've probably used it to buy something. 

My room is full of little corners containing numerous things, both decorations and practical items, and also practical items I use as decorations since I don't have much space in my room to store things. Here is an example of how I decorated this little perfume corner.

It finally happened - I picked up a camera and went outside to shoot some photographs. It has been a long time coming. I kept playing with an idea of learning more about the art of photography but I just never got my hands on it. I have always loved photography. To me, any good photograph speaks a thousand words. You do not need any special explanations if you capture the moment right. Through photography, you can capture the atmosphere of the scene and mood of your object. 

It is also a truly amazing feeling to be able to adjust the camera settings to have just the right amount of light, to figure out that proper ratio for the components of the 'exposure triangle'. I am very excited to get into photography, and I hope something really great comes out of it.

Again, Russian Samovar

Yes, you guessed it right - we took another trip to the Russian Samovar. What can we do, this place never fails to make onus happy. From food, to drinks, to the atmosphere - it's always a 'win'!

Is It Spring Yet?

It's April 8th, and it is colder outside than it was in the winter. Maybe I am exaggerating, but only a little, and given the fact that the cold continues well into the spring months, that gives me a fair reason to complain.

In addition, I already put away all of my winter clothes on the first weekend of April, thinking that "it's April - how much colder can it really be?" Wrong move. 

To make it at least seem like it's spring outside, I decided that it's time to break out these floral pants. It's a little over 30 degrees outside, but I'm trying to get into a spring mood. That's the spirit!
