As I wrote previously, here are some more pictures of our trip to York.

I got a few comments complimenting my white tights on the previous post...(thanks!) It's probably an effect of the light because they're actually silver. Though, on the pictures I'm about to post, I'm wearing white tights. I thought I'd mention it... I don't want to look as if I never change tights! hehe

It's a shame the weather was horrible (I love England!) because I brought with me a lovely summer dress which I didn't get the chance to wear. It was cold, damp and windy... That explains why I'm wearing my warm coat on those pictures too!

Last weekend, Andrew and I went away for the weekend. We went to the lovely and very old town of York. I truly enjoyed its atmosphere. It's one of those place where you feel you're back in time... I was almost feeling like a Princess with my Prince Charming, walking around old and tight little streets where each (almost) building has a history.
Being originally from America, old ruins and castles are not common sights for me. Therefore, they fascinate me.

York Minster

We did as much as we could while we were there, including the Viking Center, the York Dungeons, Clifford's Tower, York Minster... and the Ghost Tour. That was intriguing. Walking around York late at night with a guide telling us stories of inexplicable things from a long or not so long time ago was fascinating.

Clifford's Tower

Erm, yes. It was windy.

Pictures you see in this post were taken on Saturday and Sunday. Since we were there three days, there will be more to come!

A glimpse of summer and a new dress.

By C.Elizabeth

I first will start by saying how interesting it was to read about how so many people are also into vampire stories. I say it once more, if you get the chance, read "Salem's Lot". I still haven't finished it but so far, it's the perfect book.

I've always been a big reader. Sometime reading 3-4 books a month, depending on my mood. I simply think it's such an important thing to do...You can learn so much on life by doing so! Nowadays, people are more interested in watching TV or reading tabloids: easy options for a lazy society. Just like fast food. So just like fast-food, if you look a big further, you discover there are so many healthier options! Also... what's better than the smell of a book?

Last weekend was a real glimpse of summer... a very short one though as it's been raining almost everyday since. Except yesterday. Today's not too bad either, but very windy and chilly. When will nice weather finally settle in?
As usual, since it was nice outside, we went out for a walk.

White top from Marks & Spencer, Brown vest top from Garage, Denim skirt from Simons, leggings from H&M, sandals from Aldo (I think).

On Thursday, I went shopping during my lunch time to get a little present for a person from work who finished on Friday. As I walked through H&M, I saw a dress. Well, I actually think the dress called me. I simply fell in love with it. Though, as I was a bit on a rush to get back to work, I thought I'd come back the following day to try it on and buy it. Of course, when I went back on Friday, they only had size 12, 14 and 18 left. I was gutted. Fortunately, a very helpful sale assistant gave me the number of the Manchester City Center H&M, which is much bigger. Since I planned on going on Saturday anyway, I thought I'd give it a try. They had only one size left, which was my size so I managed to reserve it until the following day. I don't need to tell you how excited I was (Yeah, I know, it's just a dress but...). I ended up buying it. The style is very 1950's like, which I absolutely love. I just can't wait to get the weather for me to wear it! Anyway, here it is:
