"I believe in pink. I believe that laughing is the best calorie burner. I believe in kissing, kissing a lot. I believe in being strong when everything seems to be going wrong. I believe that happy girls are the prettiest girls. I believe that tomorrow is another day, and I believe in miracles." --Audrey Hepburn

Things to Make You Smile

I can't believe it, but the semester is nearly over and now it's just a matter of wrapping up loose ends and taking finals (!) before winter break is finally upon us. I am proud to say that I just finished my final paper for the semester, so I decided to reward myself with a little blog-reading and an entry for the day. The low temperatures have been getting to me lately (the walk back to my dorm at night is not fun), so this blog post is devoted to things that make me smile and remind me of bright, cheerful summer days.
  • I absolutely love van Gogh's paintings. Despite his troubled life, paintings like these do not contain any signs of it. These beautiful and serene landscapes always have a calming effect on me with their gentle swirls of shades of blue and green.

The Olive Trees

  • I was lucky enough to spend two weeks in Greece this summer, and it was definitely an unforgettable experience. The narrow cobble-stoned streets lined with blue and white houses and tiny churches invite you to explore the small towns and see what lies around the next corner. Not to mention wonderful shopping opportunities -- silver jewelry, bracelets with the Greek eye motif, and breezy linen clothing.

  • And for your daily fashion fix, I love these adorable and summery sundresses dresses by Milly. I love the bright and cheerful colors, the retro shapes, and the carefree and feminine attitude.
