Back to reality. . . but head still in the clouds. . .

To say that I have back-to-reality blues would be an understatement. The Big V and I got back from Rome on Monday night . . Tired, but happy. I am going to try and sort out the pictures asap – there are  S O  many, but i’ll endeavour to condense  them and just show you the reeeeally good ones. . 

On a totally random note – seeing this reminded me just how much I want to go on a hot air balloon ride. . . it must be so E P I C, seeing amazing views, among the clouds. The silence must be so peaceful up there. . . Lets all float away.

{Photos – We Heart It

Ciao + Eastern Bloc Pics

Last May, I visited the Big V’s homeland – Belgrade, Serbia. It is a beautiful city, full of c h a r m and stark contrasts. And it’s the only city in Europe that has two rivers running through it, the Sava and the Danube. I  guess the photos are a bit delayed, but better late than never I say. . .   

 

  

St Sava

How cute is the clock?!

Near the Belgrade Fortress

It was such a hospitable place – I loved the coffee culture, there is a lot of sitting around in cafes drinking coffee and watching the world go by.  

Just wanted to say a quick thank you to all the readers who have taken the time to leave nice comments – I really appreciate them all.  

I leave for Rome very early tomorrow morning, I am b e y o n d excited. So I’ll be back soon with some more pictures. C I A O.  

Discovery

I know I am about a billion years (hyperbole much?!) behind everyone else – but today I discovered We Heart It. I can forsee spending lots of time on there doing search after search for pretty pictures. . . its just that (for a techno-phobe like me) they’ve made it so easy. If you like it, you ♥ it. Simple as.

So with the help of We Heart It, I can tell you that I wish that The Big V and I were here:

Roma

Drinking this:

Cute Coffee

And eating this:

Yummy

And generally having a lovely time.

Cranky Pants

Considering the mood I’m in, it would probably be wise to avoid posting anything . .but who knows – a vent might help. 

Since January I have been feeling totally uninspired about clothes and fashion. And it seems to be reaching its peak now. . I am bored to tears with award ceremony after award ceremony, generic dress after  generic dress. Even London fashion week hasn’t managed to lift me out of the rut. I put this down to two reasons: 

-My wardrobe is a M E S S  

-The weather is so, so G R E Y that practicality has been winning over creativity for the whole of 2010 

As I only have control over one of these – I must find the motivation for a wardrobe overhaul very soon. 

Hmm – right this is all too negative – I am going to follow in the ‘blogsteps’ of tinypaperheart and make a list of the little things that I appreciate today . . .
