The Small Ladies in Voluminous Dresses

flower

I used to talk to these flowers imagining they were little ladies with voluminous dresses and many frills. Ladies who, with their many legs danced in imaginary balls and were my company in summer afternoons. I swear I could even hear the music and the sound of their many shoes hitting one another.

So many days have passed since my imagination was enough to entertain myself and be happy. When you are a kid, talking to yourself out loud is no sign of madness.

I used to be so entertained in this process that even when my parents were mocking me from where they were standing, it took me a while to figure it out and stop talking for a while. But, just until they left. And, I went back to that small world that only existed in summer afternoons.

I usually went back home at dusk, when the crickets were echoing their voices, and I just let the flowers scattered on the floor because after all, I could just pick some more on the following day. There was this certainty of continuity…

Today none of this happens. I no longer have so much imagination, there are no imaginary balls or someone forgot to invite me. I cannot even find these flowers that often. There is no certainty of continuity, only fear of what may be next.

No more ladies with many legs and shoes. Just me with two legs…and many shoes! 🙂

What is this seriousness that comes with age? What happened?

I grew up.

God bless the Summer!

Summer is finally here!

Days are bigger and hotter, and nothing seems to be as bad and dark as it would be in Winter. I believe that brighter days are the best for your soul and mind!

I confess that I prefer Winter clothes because they always seem more glamorous. When it comes to shoes, well I just can’t decide what’s best. I mean, shoes are shoes! It’s always good! hehe

I also must confess that these shoes are one of the most awful shoes to walk in. I love them but they are extremely unconfortable and they don’t fit me that well.

But I guess that when you love a pair…you just won’t give up that easily! I am a size 4 and this is more like a size 3, so you can imagine my pain…

Enjoy your Summer, preferably in wonderful shoes (confortable if possible)!

White Obsession: Take II

$_57

 

If there’s such thing as love at first sight, this was it! I fell in love the moment I saw this white pencil skirt. And I couldn’t rest until I have one for myself. Yes, how shallow of me! Who cares? I got the skirt! ^^

I felt like one in a million, or like a million bucks! I felt so feminine and elegant with little (or not so little) effort!

A Sunset & Shoes Story

Image

 

You never know the little wonders that you can find if you just step outside your door and look around. These photos were taken at Praia dos Anjos, Madeira. The name means Angels Beach. It’s not the common white/yellow sandy beach, but it’s so beautiful and you can wait and see this wonderful sunset.

I was trying to prove myself that I could walk normally with these shoes in the rocks, but it became obvious that I could break a leg.

You can also have a refreshing drink at Zion Project, a small eco-friendly bar inside a container. With re-used materials you can sit on handmade couches, chairs, puffs, tables, etc.

It was a pleasant afternoon, and I am planning to go back to Praia dos Anjos, but a bit earlier, so I can have a proper sun tan!

Have a great weekend!

Tchau!
