Portrait with rose

 Inspired by cold, unfriendly light of this day I wanted to take some photos matching the amosphere. Almost seems like evening was there all the time, even if days are becoming significantly longer. Hard to stay awake for me since I do everything but sleep at night. Yesterday I tried to do some sketches and again didn't like it. Abstract theme for one of the school's subjects seems to give me nightmares already. Certainly not my favourite theme to do.

Meanwhile I'm listening to some dark melancholy music as a background for daily activities, or lack of them. I'm especially into dark ambient and neoclassical stuff last time. They have some beauty to them that makes you forget about real world.

How is you day going?~

Braid and a long skirt

The days fly so fast right now. As I got involved in everyday acitivities, the time suddenly dissappeared. I'm trying to work more than in previous semester, especially that I'm pretty excited to learn subjects we've been introduced to last week. I'm also about to give a few presentations which I'm liking less.
Yesterday the weather was so nice, it reminded me of spring coming closer. It's been so warm I had to take off my coat. Now as I'm writing it the heavy sky dissappoints with its sad grayscale, unfortunately. I cannot wait to be able to go skating when it's warm. I also have loose plans about riding a bike often instead of taking a bus. We will see how it goes.

The outfit I'm wearing today is one of my favourites last time. I tend to choose the same accessories everytime since I think some bright purple details suits this kind of looks. The skirt I'm wearing is from  Italy and the necklace is from Claire's. The ring was a gift from my grandma.

I got new shoes last time from I'm happy to finally find platform boots which are not too high. They also have suede lace which is a cool detail, Now that I have quite a collection of clothes, I promise myself not to buy any for some time. In fact, I'm planning to clean my closet a bit and sell a few pieces.

The Last Thursday

I have a last few days of  rest before the university starts. The new schedule is already up on my school profile and it seems I won't have any spare time at all. I hope I can carry on with blogging though.
Today is a holiday called The Fat Thursday in Poland. Traditionally everyone buys, or sometimes prepares, a lot of ,,Pączki", a polish deep-fried pastry similar to donut, and consumes as much as they like. A holiday based on eating - now that's my kind of holiday :) Usually I don't eat pączki as they are super sweet and fat, but once a year I always try some.

 Today's outfit: Tunic: thrifted (originally Only) / boots: Jennifer&Jennifer / bag: thrifted (originally New Look) / bracelet: I am / earrings: Claire's

 Hope you are doing great guys and wish you a good weekend.

I see hearts

I know what are you thinking today, commercial holiday is peeking from every corner with red hearts and cheap chocolate. For me Valentine's didn't go as expected, and I had only a short amount of time with my love. I think we will celebrate properly at the weekend, when work won't be in the way.

I took a classic romantic attire, but I couldn't resist adding a little twist :) this bag is one of two I've been painting last week. Showing some of my interest of anatomy while keeping it romantic is something I like :)
I also wear today H&M dress which I thrifted, Papercats corset and necklace which I got at Alterfair.

 I made mini bath bombs with recipe from here. I also printed a label of my idea to make a jar more fancy. Making you own cosmetics turns out to be so much fun. I think my love liked it :)

In case you need some love today, I give it to you! ❤️️

Art of Horror

Have you ever heard about Zdzisław Beksiński? I have, a lot. I remember already from my childhood he was mentioned to be one of the greatest Polish modern artists. In October I heard about the new exibition about his paitings opened in Cracow. I managed to go there with friends. After waiting over an hour in a queue, we finally get there. Small place. Black walls. What I saw was one of the most amazing things. The works was displayed on glowing screens, making all the colors pop. This way one could see a whole spectrum of artists' skill. In the end I bought the album to take this experience to home :)

If you ever happen to be close to Cracow, go see this exibition. Don't think twice. You'll not be dissappointed.

Anyway, today I went to another exibition dedicated to Beksiński's creations, This time in Warsaw. It was a free session of Virtual Reality when you literally step into his paintings. It was a fascinating thing, it felt a bit like a strange realistic dream.
I present you some of the works in a book, but I assure you it doesn't do the justice to them.
