Looking up at the starry skies

nightphoto

If you have followed this blog since its inception, you will have been witness to my flirtation with the many faces of creativity. The truth is, that of all the things I do or try my luck at, there is one that I enjoy more and where I believe I have some potential, and that is photography. Could I say that I have found my passion? A while ago I got interested in night photography. Ok, I  should say I…

2 In A piece of my mind

Living life with a lighter heart

Beach

Today, I wanted to write about summertime revelations I had during the break As you may know, I’ve been to France, Germany and Austria this summer, but the real break from work wasn’t until I went to visit my parents on my own for 10 days. 10 days where the only thing I did, beside meeting friends and roasting under the sun, was reading books. Silence and books. “That’s the life”, I thought to myself. I have had a lot of time in…

Paris, je t’aime

paris je taime

Can I tell you a secret? I have never been to Paris Paris, the city of love, the stuff of dreams. The place where so many great heart-warming (some, heart-melting) movies take place. Movies like Amélie, Paris Je T’aime, The Beat that my heart skipped, Before Sunset, Moulin Rouge (I was 16 and hormonal. BIG IMPACT)… but also some tough films like La Haine. So many stories about Paris, and here I was, still a Paris Virgin! That’s right, I had never been in…

My fully-packed weekend in London!

London

I spent the weekend in London with my friend Silvia, who had a conference there and asked me to tag along. I, of course, accepted! Although I was (and still am) in much need of a chilling holiday, I decided to jump right into it and do as many things as possible during the weekend, to live the fullest of experiences -and I succeeded! I realized I hadn’t been there since my 25th birthday, so it’s been nearly 5 years!…

Havana, Part II: Discovering Vedado

Vedado

Vedado is a neighborhood west to Havana’s better-known districts of Old and Central Havana. If you are on a guided your, you will most likely end up there because it’s where you can find the famous Tropicana night club, together with the Hotel Nacional, one of Havana’s most prominent landmarks, or the FOCSA building (the tallest in Cuba!). But Vedado is actually much larger than that area, and extends a long way to the west. Walking through El Malecón (Havana’s famous promenade) from…

Tears are words that need to be written

Tears are words

Contrary to what you may believe, this is not a sad post. “Tears are words that need to be written”. I once read that quote in Paulo Coelho’s blog. Back when I could read Paulo Coelho. This week has reminded me of that statement more than ever, because I have cried. Uncontrollably, like an erupting volcano; like a child, senselessly. And the worst was that I, the queen of introspection, could not pinpoint what was wrong with me, after having…

Rocking Stephen West’s Boneyard Shawl!

Boneyard Shawl

It’s been a long long time since I posted about knitting. I must confess that since I am more versed into photography lately, my time to knit has decreased, and with the weather being sooo hot out there, I just think less about picking up my needles. You know what I actually love doing during the summer months? Crocheting handbags! -but I’ll get to that another day. Last year during the Craftsy sale, I signed up for the Shawlscapes class, where…
