Goodbye, Uni...

-By Natalia-

Hello hello :)

Last week it was my last day in Uni. We finally got our diplomas (yaaaay!!!) after 6 years of studying! Luckily the day was sunny and we had a chance to wear our dresses :)

Here's my uni

I didn't wear anything special for this day actually...a classic black dress and black shoes. Also took my mum's jewellery - a necklace, a bracelete and earings :)

Me and girls from my group...

After the official part we went to a restaurant!

Still can't believe it's over!! no more exams, lectures.... F.r.e.e.d.o.m. :)))

Lovely awards

By C.Elizabeth

Recently, I have received those lovely awards from Tia Cherie . Those are actually my first awards so it's even more special!

The same lovely person also pass me to Honest Scrap Award, which I find quite interesting! I am really looking forward to read it all on your blogs!

10 honest things about myself:

1. I've moved so many times in my life that I can barely remember where I've lived and for how long.

2. I always thought I'd end up living somewhere down south... How did I end up in England?

3. I'm a vegetarian. Which is actually crap when you go to someone's place to eat. It always make me feel uncomfortable.

4. I worry a lot and very easily. Which makes me a stressed person. Then again, we live in a stressed world.

5. I'm a bit of a cleaning freak. Well, not just a bit as some people would say. Let's just say I like it when it's tidy.

6. I'm very sarcastic. People very often don't get me and think I'm rude. Though, they're occasionally right.

7. I miss my lovely North America like mad. I love traveling but I now know where I definitely want to be. Home.

8. I'm getting very bad at writing in French... and even speaking it from time to time. That really annoys my mom.

9. I've always wanted to have natural dark hair... why o why am I blond while my sister is very dark?

10. I started figure skating just before I turned 4 and lived for it for years. My favorite activity at weekends was to pretend I was an Olympic Champion... lots of jumping about on tasteless songs in my living room.


-I must thank the person who gave me the award and list their blog and link it - I must list 10 honest things about myself.

-I must put a copy of The Honest Scrap Logo on my blog.

-I must select at least 7 other worthy bloggers & list their links - I must notify the bloggers of the award and hopefully they will follow the above three requirements also.

For all those awards, I tag the lovely:

I would like to pass those to:

The Fabulosity Factor

The Sydney Girl

Sweety P Style Files

Strawberry Kitten

Pearls and Sands

Almost Stylish

A day in Blackpool

By C.Elizabeth

Over the last week, my friend Ariella was here, visiting. It was really nice to meet up again after two years! This time we took a lot more pictures... we learned from our mistakes!

One of those days was spent in Blackpool. It's a seaside resort on the North West coast of England. Being from Canada, it was also the first time I went there so it made it even more exciting!

I thought the beach was very beautiful and the sky was breath taking! It reminded me of a beach somewhere in Florida (without the palm trees and very warm weather obviously). The weather was so nice that we walked along the beach our feet in the water.

Here are some pictures:

If I could turn back time...

-By Natalia-

Hello hello!

Wanted to share with you some pics that I made recently while being in one of the most amazing places in the world - Tallinn! Ahhh I simply fall in love with this city and Estonia in general! Tallinn is such a beautiful city, with its rich history and culture... a perfect place to visit if you want to have some rest from crowds of people, traffic jams, industrialisation.

Many tour agencies here in St-Pete's offer Romantic Weekends in Tallin as special tours for couples :) What can be better than going for a walk in the Old Town of Tallinn in the morning, having a cup of hot coffee with cinnamon (the smell is just incredible!) is some small cafe in the open air, then visiting the main square with millions of small stores, whih will offer you different souveniers that will you definately remind you of this place when you come back...

I have always dreamed about living in a castle full of ghosts when I was a kid :)

Well, haven't seen any ghost (Booo) when in Tallinn, but had a great chance to see and visit many castles and towers... I am still under impression! It's hard to describe, but it is something special - seeing a medieval castle...just imagine, some centures ago people really lived there, were protecting those walls from the enemies...

Hehe and.... now I also know what it's like to be a knight! :P Have a look at Rakvere Castle...and me. lol ---->

My new vintage dress

By C.Elizabeth

Last week I received a package... It was my lovely new vintage dress which I bought on Ebay. I simply couldn't wait to receive it and put it on! Typically, the weather wasn't nice enough for me to wear it right away so I had to wait almost a week before being able to show it off! This dress is originally from Miami, Florida so it feels like it brought of bit of my beloved North America... a bit of my home.

Dress vintage, Bow Claire's, Sandals Aldo, Sunglasses M&S

Something else very exciting will happen in five days. My good friend Ariella from Pearls In Your Hair will be visiting me for just under a week. I'm really looking forward to this because it has been two years since we last saw each other. We then went to Dublin, which was really great so I'm expecting to have just as much fun this time around!

A day in Buxton, England

By C.Elizabeth

Last Saturday, Andrew and his parents suggested we all go to Buxton, a little old town about an hour away from where we live. You might have heard of it because of the water coming from there.
I wasn't quite sure at first since I've been very unwell lately with a pneumonia and a bad back, but since the weather was fantastic, I decided to go along. After all, there's always somewhere I can sit if I feel too tired, so why miss an opportunity to visit somewhere new? And it was the best opportunity to finally get to wear my lovely H&M dress!
On top of that, I've been stuck at home for over two weeks now and it will be another three before I go back to work so I'm very bored. At least the weather is on my side so I can sit in my backyard and enjoy the sun!
