carnaval animal

I - uhm, actually Rosa - got this great carnaval animal paper art book created by Iris de Vericourt from friends for Christmas. So pretty, don't you think? As it says on its back: "un méli-mélo d'animaux, pour en créer de nouveau et mélanger les couleurs" (a mishmash of animals, for creating new ones and mixing colours). Perfect gift!

That bottle

I love it!

It's from Comme des Garçons and it comes in various colours/designs. This one is the unisex AMAZINGREEN eau de parfum. I wonder if the smell is as good as the design!

Time for some comfort!

I needed new sneakers and wanted some serious comfort this time, so last week I bought my very first pair of Nike Air Max. Talking about comfort! They might not be the most elegant shoes I've ever had (just a little bit of an understatement), but walking on them is a real delight. And don't the colors make you super happy?? I had tried on Nikes before, but they never fitted because of the narrow feet that I happen to have. Apparently Nike also carries women's sizes, which fit just well. And now, I can't stop walking, so... off again!

I love souvenirs! I tend to attach to things, people, events, periods in my life - in other words: pretty much everything, as long as it made me happy at some point in time - a lot and souvenirs are always happy to take me back to that special something from the past. But. There's a but. You can't have too many of them. You just can't. Or, well, I suppose you could, but then you shouldn't bother about your interior ending up being a fair trade shop on its own. Since that's not what I'm looking for, I'm selective when buying souvenirs. Meet this cute little souvenir from Argentina that met the selection criteria (whatever those may be). I bought it in 2009, at the reception of a crappy hotel near Ischigualasto national parc. Aah..... such great memories!!!

Happy New Year!

My New Year's intentions: 1. taking good care of little Rosa, 2. again trying to put more consciousness into my life (living in the moment, buying only essentials, all that stuff) and 3. (obviously most important ;-) ) more blog posts!!

A wonderful 2013 to everyone!
