Lectura de sambata dimineata
Early morning si o lista lunga de „to do’s”: cateva documentare despre lumea modei de vazut, un mic teanc de reviste de rasfoit, planuri pentru un urmator curs (psihologia stilului, intereseaza pe cineva?), ultimele detalii ale cursului de stil personal din martie (btw, mai avem 4 locuri libere la Fashion do’s & dont’s pentru sambata urmatoare!)… Presarate printre ele, o cafea buna, un sarut somnoros de „buna dimineata”, jocuri cu pisici, ciocolata sarata si o minunata fusta, in cel mai cotton candy roz posibil.
Saptamana asta, va doresc sa fiti iubite si sa iubiti!
