Dark days, bright things



The gorgeous work of artist Kat Macleod.
This is instant happiness!






(.)

The gorgeous soaps, candles and other prettiness from Saipua.
Saipua also has a blog.




(Also via Frolic)

I have no words to explain how much i need a vacation.
I haven't been outside Holland for like 5 years or something.
Just being away from everything.
Easy days with nothing to do.
And a bed like this in a breezy room....


(.)

Gorgeous simplicity


(.)

Such a gorgeous girl, all dressed up....


(Via this very interesting French blog)

This 'Kissing Trick' made me laugh, but also very curious....

What do you think?



Oh love love love love love love love love love

Oh, I wish I was on a holiday, too! Wait a minute - I am! I'm still on my Christmas holiday (orthodox Christmas is Jan 7th), but I'm working very hard every day, preparing for college.

It's tough being an adult!

A vacation sounds lovely, can I come to Holland?! :) Oh and I was curious about the kissing trick too!!! I didnt ask my husband to try it though... if I do try it I'll report back with the results ;)

Outi said...

Haha, you know "saippua" (with double p) would actually be Finnish and mean soap! Funny! I think they were being clever when they came up with that name for the company...

Hope you are doing well, Mila-dear.

1) Yes, you do need a vacation. A true holiday. A time for just YOU and your thoughts. Sometimes I get scared thinking of being alone for that long by myself so I don't make plans. And I was just thinking today, I need to go on vacation, I need to be with myself again. Start to plan...where do you want to go to, what do you want to see? Narrow it down...
2) Love. :) See facebook message...I think that summed up my whole take on where love and I stand right now...love for self I have, but learning how to let go and love into another...ah, that is where I get a bit uncertain of things...

Ah, today is bright and sunny and I so just need the covers up and over my head...and a big fat glass of cold white wine to soothe me. Wish you could join me!! someday?!
xoxoxox always

oh my. that kat macleod is amazing! its kinda funny though, because i know a katie macleod. and as far as the blog goes, i might be able to tell you how i like it or not, except i can't understand the french DDD:

makemoremistakes said...

Ohhhh you're beautiful. I agree, all of this is instant happiness. I think you should go on holiday, to the most wonderful and gorgeous place you can imagine, and take some photos, and breathe some breaths, and love love love. And then tell us about how the breaths felt, and how love is, and show us the photos.

I do love you.
