Not to mention that the day is so short that you literally have to run from the morning, hoping the clouds will clear out, so you can catch that short moment of sunshine before the night comes again.
Anyway, enough complaining. Here comes my new favourite pencil dress…

Anyone in the mood to have a little Parisian dream?
As you know, I have already decided to have a tailored dress for our coming wedding. Lover.ly really like my fashion style and because I’m a very cool bride-to-be (did they say this? I like to believe so) they asked me to make a moodboard based on their website and choose a dream destination. So here is what I went for…
Love ear piercing? Then you’d love Body Jewellery Shop too!
