Lectura de sambata dimineata
A fost iarasi una dintre acele saptamani – ore lungi de munca, dar presarate intre ele pauze de dupa-amiaza insorite, petrecute pe o terasa, privind un lac nemiscat, dimineti racoroase cu miros de piscina si trandafiri, seri cu gust de capsuni, pepene si frizzante…
Dar mai ales o carte fabuloasa, fascinanta, minunata, de ale carei pagini nu ma pot dezlipi – Harper’s Bazaar Greatest Hits – si care intra in concurs luni, pentru voi, si multa agitatie pentru organizarea unei editii foarte speciale de Style Conversations – de aceasta data la Constanta, in 3 august, in magazinul Pandora din City Park Mall. Daca sunteti in Constanta in weekendul urmator, va astept sa vorbim despre bijuterii, accesorii, feminitate si momente frumoase!
Astea fiind spuse, ma pregatesc pentru un weekend de trandaveala si soare, cu parinti, surori, copii si pisici, cu inghetata si roboti de jucarie, cu flori si mai ales lectura, lectura, lectura….
