It’s all a fantasy, my darling, the plush seductive lips, the long black as night lashes, the soft limbs on the bed we share, the carefully arranged messy hair, the candied flesh, the whispery voice, the wet rosy insides of this mouth that wants you more than anything. I am all candy lies and forevers, all “want me want me, a little bit more, a little bit longer, deeper, kiss me, haunt me, keep me keep me, love me, longer than life, never as hard as i love you for it would be the end of us”, I am all ruby red desire and lingering dark rose perfumes to bed, all Marilyn Monroe bedroom eyes and a face of pale virgin beauty. All i have ever wanted to be is a fantasy, whatever you dream of, whatever you yearn for, all I want is your love, your presence, the burning sensation your hands exude, the burden of carrying your secrets, your scent all over my body. I will never be done celebrating this wonderful love creature I have become, I will never stop dreaming of your lips gliding down my neck, you have made me all blossoms and new moons, no matter the heartache, no matter the absence, all i have ever wanted was to love you, to have your voice murmur words turned into lovesongs to my ear. I have no hope of surviving you, no hope of making it out alive but I still would rather be a fantasy that a ghost of someone who once was in love. Kiss me once more, keep me, haunt me, love me, never as hard as I have loved you.

"I spent all night getting it right so you would love me more,
so you would love me more
so you would love me more.

Sometimes you bring me flowers,
and misery sings to me.
Don´t want to spend a day without you
haunting my memory...

My darling friend V and I had a tea party this past sunday, we made cupcakes with lilac glitter frosting and vanilla filling, which we had with endless cups of rose tea. We also had banana milkshakes, heartshaped cakes and a fruit salad with strawberries, melon, peaches and banana.

V and I started this little secret blog project a couple of months ago where we shared our thoughts and current loves
we have decided to make it public now,
do drop by and take a look at all the photographs we took of our dear tea party

I woke up thinking of Audrey Hepburn today, I wasn’t dreaming about her, but she was in my mind since I first got out of bed. I thought about her as I’ve always imagined her to be, not Holly Golightly but the fragile bird-like girl she was, with the crooked teeth, the chiseled cheekbones and the bright sparkling eyes. To me, if there has ever been a girl who embodied grace and delicacy was her, I guess that’s the reason why most girls like her so much, she never was the sex kitten Miss Monroe wanted to be but she still was wonderful. They both tried so hard to be a dream and they did succeed like no one else.

After thinking about her for a very long time while I was in the shower I remembered that time I told you how much I idolize her and admire her, how Breakfast at Tiffany’s was a movie that never failed to make teary eyed and how Holly Golightly had the perfect sassy charm that I have always dreamed of having. I remember how I told you that no one could ever be as beautiful as Audrey and you told me she wasn’t that beautiful, she was just “pretty”, you broke my heart and made me think of this quote

“She held herself very straight, like Audrey Hepburn, whom all women idolize and men never think about.”

Jeffrey Eugenides

After a while I understood this, She was a girl who wanted to be girl, not a fatal temptress, not a a threat, neither a doll. She seemed to be happy being herself and I don’t think lots of girls could say that yet they do keep trying, as hard as they can, with all their might and all their heart, and in the end, that is just as beautiful and wonderful as being the girl every other girl wants to be.

I will always love this quote, it makes me dream that she truly was the loveliest girl ever alive:

“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

oh pretty things

I have always been fascinated with beauty, always terribly in love with all the pretty things. I can't help but fall to pieces when it's over beauty's sake. I have always been trapped into this neverending quest for all the wonderful, darling things in the world. I remember when I was very little, my dad used to take my brother & I to toy stores and I always always wanted to take home every little thing that sparkled my interest, it was never enough and I don't really think it was selfish ambition but love, love for all the wonderful things to dream and romanticize to the point of idyllic unreality. I am still trapped into this hazy dream of finding lovely things to take home, every corner and shelf in my room is filled with the most precious treasures I have found all over the world, some of them are bestowed upon me by loved ones and lovers, some others are personal finds, nevertheless, it's still one of the things I like to do most, finding, searching, bringing beauty into my home and I shall never get tired of it, it's always an adventure!

these are some of the things I brought from Paris,
some others are gifts from my sailor and from my darling nymphs
