dnnswhy hello there! it’s been tough around here lately, so i apologize for the radio silence. i’ve been going to lots of meetings and taking in my last days of vacation because tomorrow i’m off to work (insert super sad and tired face here). last year i got my first job and it was amazing, this year i am back at it and it’s really exciting! seeing old friends, learning new things from all those kids, making new friends and also learning from them. when we had our first meeting last month everyone was so happy to see each other, i even heard someone saying this: i waited all year long for this, i missed you guys! it was really sweet.
but as i was telling you, this year i’m back at it, so it means i won’t be able to post often due to extreme tiredness and maybe two weekends of camping out with the kids. the fun begins tomorrow and i am already tired, is that even possible? maybe sunday meetings at 8am, last-minute uniform adjustments (because they delivered them today), team switches and over thinking costume days are harder than they look.
i know i’ll have fun, and since this is my second and last year i’ll make the best of it! wish me luck and i’ll be posting every chance i get, i promise!

National Geographic

nglast month’s national geographic magazine was just amazing!
we were at the supermarket when my dad saw it and bought it. on the cover: a hero dog. i mean, what’s there not to love about dogs, right? well, now try a hero dog. of course i died!
when i opened the magazine i saw this picture, it was a redhead girl and the mini article said redheads sense things different than the rest of us. amazing right?
but i’m not even done here; one of the first pages tells a short story about a us military soldier and his parter, the dog had lost a leg and had a special brace that helped her move around. the next story about hero dogs also tells the story of a soldier and his partner during war in sangin. i’m not going to tell the story, because i would totally spoil it if you ever want to read it, but it’s really interesting and it may bring you to tears, just like me.
there is also an article about a train, the matvei murdov, that delivers medical care in small towns across the russian far east. pretty impressive as well.
i always find interesting learning about other countries, their culture and problems just to name the most interesting things to me. last month i wrote this post about vice, which is my favorite news site online, next: national geographic.

Neutrals

shoesi don’t know exactly how many pairs of shoes i own, but i don’t wear them all. there may even be a few new pairs (time to sell them, maybe?) but certainly, my favorite ones are neutrals: white or cream/tan, honestly i don’t know what color it is, so let’s call them nude-ish.
i’ve been trying to keep my shoes on a neutral palette but sometimes it’s hard! you know what i mean? so while looking for inspiration i found all these gems, and oh surprise: birkens on my wishlist?! well, yes! but… this pair ain’t that awful, right?

On a rainy day…

jns4jns1on saturday we had a family meeting at my house, so it was packed and overwhelming, but good. at some point my sister and i sneaked out with one of our cousins to take some pictures. it was really fun, one of us posing, the other taking the picture and the last one holding an umbrella. it has been raining nonstop for the past few weeks here, but on saturday we didn’t mind. we even ended jumping in puddles and taking some funny pictures.

Bits + Pieces

bp1bp3bp2 bp4my favorite necklace ever/ night talks with my sister, she is the best/ this pin won’t stop disappearing and giving me small heart attacks/ dinosaur temporary tattoos/ i hurt my knee again last tuesday, so my running shoes will have to step aside/ the last photo was taken back in may, but it sums up almost every day in my life.
it’s finally thursday, you guys! i’m heading over to the doctors’ office for my discharge appointment (finally!) in case you were wondering, i got nose surgery back in april, nothing plastic, but everything’s good now!

Hair inspiration

hairinspoi’ve been thinking about getting a new haircut for a few weeks now. i know it’s been only a month and a half-ish since i got my hair done, but that shouldn’t keep me from dreaming, right? i was thinking about short hair, no bangs or maybe long ones, but short hair. my mom said no way! and my sister said go for it! my hair is crazy, sometimes curly, sometimes straight, others just a mess and that kind of freaks me out: super big, messy and short hair. my head would look like a helmet!
there are days when i think maybe i should keep it long. i’ve had really long hair for two years and i love how versatile it can be. a bun, braids, straight, curly, beach waves… the possibilities are infinite!
i want to wait until my bangs grow and then i’ll see. in the meanwhile i’ll just dream about it.

An outfit post?

ootd2ootd4on sunday my sister asked me to take some pics for her blog, and since i haven’t used my new lens, i couldn’t refuse. we went out on a stroll that afternoon and after taking hers she said it’s your turn! i’m not a take me some ootd pictures kind of gal, but on sunday it seemed funny even though my hair was super messy and i had no make up on, because who wears make up on sundays, right? here’s what we came up with:
