My Style # 6 [OOTD] -- Princess Coat ;)

I know it's taken me quite long to upload these. But honestly, with all the summery weather we've been having lately, I've found it hard to remember what I was wearing during those two short weeks of spring... Well, here are the pics of me wearing my fabulous Lanvin for H&M coat!

Fantasy Writer of the Week: Robert Jordan

I've been planning to do something like this for a very long time now. As for the last couple of years I've been reading little else than fantasy, in my free time, I thought it was a good idea to start reviewing some of the books I liked. Especially because in reading all tastes are so different that the more reviews you read the better you can judge an author's work. I'd like to add my point of view to the vast amount of book reviews out there.

I'll go in no particular order, or rather, in no order of preference. I'm planning to write these posts, going author by author, in the order I read them. I'm determined to keep all kinds of spoilers out of the game, because that's exactly the point of this endeavor: to make it easier for you to decide whether you want to read the book or not. Neither do I want to go into a discussion of the storyline. What I'm going to do is give you some hints as to the style of the writer and the atmosphere of the book. So let's start!

Spring in the Park

Yes, it's finally here. We've had a long and dark winter and, though we've already seen a couple of sunny days, nothing compares to the glory of full spring. And it's finally here. The beauty of parks in full bloom is one of the reasons I love Geneva so much. There's something wild, something unusually natural about these parks. Their trees don't seem subdued servants of the city, only kept to provide shade and occasional esthetic enjoyment. They're free and... somehow they even look happy. They're old and healthy, big and beautiful. If you're around, you must visit these parks once. And share in their beauty and freedom.
