Don’t you just love this word, “exams“? I know I do. This picture says everything. In other words? Exams, I’m going to pass – what am I saying… ROCK all of you because no way I am staying here for the summer! No offence, Brussels, but London gets my heart beating faster. So, here I go! Back to the books, the typing and the highlighting!
P.S. I apologise for the future lack of posts but I promise I will be back with new brain (and eye) candy! 🙂
I just love it how this short movie instantly brings you into the optimist world of the Belle Époque. Need I mention the beautiful decors, the uplifting music and those stunning costumes? Also, Keira Knightley has got the perfect allure for playing Gabrielle Chanel (we all know those are fierce, big shoes to fill…).
All in all, Lagerfeld remains a genius.

Yes, sir! Heading to London soon, for a three-month internship! I’m still trying to wrap my mind around it, to be honest. It’s something I’ve been dreaming about for the last five years, but I’d never thought that I would actually spend three full months in one of the most breathtaking cities out there! I should calm down with the exclamation marks, really…
I have a rather special relationship with London, seeing how it’s the first foreign city I visited when I was little. Every time I go back, it feels like home in lots of ways. I never get tired of visiting familiar places and mingling with amazing people! What I love about London in particular is that you can never – ever – feel self-conscious. Everybody is different and celebrates diversity. Feeling like the luckiest girl alive? You bet! 😀

On that note, I should probably read “The Little Prince” again. I remember reading it for the first time when I was eleven, stuck in bed with a mean cold. I’m sure I’m not the only who likes re-reading classics and remembering good times! 🙂
