Born a romantic, I was thrilled to find out that our room in Florence had 'LOVE' written over one of the walls. Not only that - the table in the room held a vase full of purple, vintage-looking flowers!! And there were also two chairs on which one could stay sipping some yummy Chianti :D
My bubbly colleague came into the office to show me her bright bluish nail varnish! She was saying how at first she wasn't sure of the colour, that maybe she should have opted for a pink or a coral but then was offered the blue-nail-varnish-alternative and was like "What the heck - let's try this out!". Told you - bubbly!! :)
I'm usually one who loves purple in home decor arrangements, navy blue or coral when it comes to clothing and general attire and mango when it comes to lighting. But BEER is definetly my favourite colour!! :D
And if by any chance you happen to be questioning whether Dorianne is...
The idea behind this blog title? Sharing four great quotes about curiosity which I came across today. Here they come!
- The first, as referred to already in the blog title:
"I have no special talent. I am only passionately curious." by Albert Einstein
Ok, so as some of you may know, I've been ranting on about make-up for the last couple of weeks. I've been watching these make-up tutorials online, and despite being one who usually hardly cares bout such products, I decided to have a go and try my luck with 'make-up' :D And the result of all this is that I'm now hooked on this stuff!
I've always kind of been a candle-fanatic but yesterday I've managed to amuse myself with what seemed to be like my largest candle haul ever! It's that this huge department store, close to work, was having some discount on selected ranges of candles and in turn - I bought all of them :/
The wind week of change; that's what I'm calling it. A very pleasant week, overall. Changes can scare the hell out of you; in my case, not being up to a challenge has the ability to haunt me way more than, for example, fitting in a new group. But that is a character thingy I suppose.
I will be missing all of this. I will be missing you xx To lots of happy moments we've already been through, and many yet to come. You're the bestest of all...xx Will miss you xx
Three days from my last day at work saw me confused at work, the way I am every time I have to take one of those difficult decisions :/ But my lovely colleagues made me forget the unpleasantness of it all - they were all there to make sure I was ok.
The Thinker - a bronze sculpture on marble pedestal which now sits in the Musee Rodin in Paris - depicts a man in meditation "battling with a powerful internal struggle". Somehow, it feels that The Thinker also manages to perfectly depict my current stato d'anima. And I can tell you - it's EXHAUSTING. Have you ever been in a situation where...
I don't normally enjoy doing a copy-and-paste job in my blogs but yesterday I've received an email which I loved, possibly because it's really relevant to me at the mo. So I thought why not share it? Here it comes...
Yep - it's Friday!! Leave the blues at the office and get the booze out of the drinking cabinet - time to PARTY!!! :)
..Happy Valentine's Day just the same!! :) To our hubbies, parents, girlfriends, friends and acquaintances. Also to those less fortunate or to those who are somehow feeling a bit lonely these days. Everyone deserves attention and affection, let's celebrate LOVE! :)
Having a coffee shop and bookstore under one roof is not a novelty abroad, but in Malta this is still quite a new notion. So you can imagine my delight each time I go to this cafeteria next to my place. It's a relaxing, gorgeous room - heavenly to say the least!
28 years today - time IS flying! As soon as I find myself starting to panic about it, I try to calm down by reminding myself that I have lots to look forward to; a trip sometime in May, 3 new bags, ermm.... the unhealthiest bank account ever, the occasional white hairs... Nahhh, joking apart, I have my family, my friends and am healthy. Couldn't ask for more, I'm so so...
They were almost all there to celebrate my 'getting more mature' last Friday - my family, my friends, my life. Am getting older, and there are times when I kind of panic about it, until I find myself being - over and over again - reminded how much...
