Oh, Jeez... February is on its last week already (WHAT? Is it almost over?)
and I can´t believe what a soft and nice Winter we had.
You see? There´s no way to complain about the weather anymore, as it has been quite warm comparing with last year around here...
Anyway, it´s time for another monthly round-up episode.
Do you want to know what I did in January?
I considered January a good moment to put my current red shade obsession aside temporarily, and embrace new things. New year, new me, right?
So purple looked like the perfect alternative for a little touch of colour. I visited my favourite makeup store in the city and purchased this pretty nail polish by Gabrini,
which was my greatest discovery last year in terms of affordable nail polish brands.
They make the most amazing and intense tones of purple, red, blue, green and essencially
any shade you can think of!
I only got this one, but there are around two dozens of other colours in my wishlist now.
January was a relaxing and unestressful month.
I spent most of my time walking through snowy streets with The Gentle One, enjoying the beauty
of parks, houses and trees covered in white.
Favourite thing about Winter walks is the merry moment you go back home, put on comfy
clothes, prepare a nice cup of tea and you curl up on a blanket with a good book.
Little seasonal treassures, isn´t it?
Ans speaking about books, I think I have mentioned how unexpensive books are here in Bucharest.
Last month was a bit modest in terms of shopping, as I have been saving up some extra money
in order to buy a sewing machine (I hope to be able to tell you more about it soon!).
Nevertheless, books provide hours of joy and entertainment for little money, which is just what I need in my life right now. I got this gorgeous Wordsworth Classics edition from the complete works of the Brontë sisters last month. I am a big fan of English nineteenth century fiction and the works from the Brontës (specially Emily and Charlotte) are among my absolute favourites.
To be specific, Jane Eyre is one of the novels I never get tired of.
Reading it is like visiting an old friend of mine, who has got the ability of making feel home,
even if I am a bit sad or nostalgic.
So tell me darlings, how is Winter treating you?
