These are old photos I have been playing around with through edition. Photography is one of my dreams yet to fullfil. I want to learn how to doit well and buy a decente camera. But while that doesn't happen, I can always have some fun with this photo editing programs!

:) wellcome to my room of wonders. If you´re new here, I would appreciate you would read my two first posts.

“When we're incomplete, we're always searching for somebody to complete us. When, after a few years or a few months of a relationship, we find that we're still unfulfilled, we blame our partners and take up with somebody more promising. This can go on and on--series polygamy--until we admit that while a partner can add sweet dimensions to our lives, we, each of us, are responsible for our own fulfillment. Nobody else can provide it for us, and to believe otherwise is to delude ourselves dangerously and to program for eventual failure every relationship we enter.” - Tom Robbins

What's life without rambling conversations under the stars? How could I ever considered being alive if I had never had an unlikely dream? How could I live without watercolours in my drawer?

Saturday morning. Racing mind on a slow body. Humidity outside reminds me of the seaside. ''I've got so many dreams that I don't know where to put them.'' Missing long talks with alike minds. All we have is our present, let's make it magical.

I really miss posting photographs.

As the year starts I think about all of the things I can do to improve my life. Then I get carried away and think about things that have been in my ''to do one day'' things since forever, to which new wishes have been added over the time. Some of the really old ones are:
* learn photography
* make my own clothes
* learn how to draw
* grow my own vegetables
* make the biggest number of eatable things at home (as marmelades, etc)...
* learn italian
* travel

others have been added along the years:

* learn japanese and french
* live in yet another country(s) (I'm portuguese and I´ve lived in England and now Spain)
* learn video and ilustration

These are actually just a few, I'll be adding to them.

As for this year, I would like to be able to be a lot more generous and tolerant. I am about to be a mother and I think that is a good reason to try to improve myself as a person...

I would like to wish everybody a wonderful 2011!
I want to come back to bloging on here. This new year is very promising and as per always there are so many things I dream of doing. I think I will be talking about them on and off, but in clothery I want to go back to what it was created for in the first place: clothes, personal style and variations around it.

I am 4 months pregnant and I have been wondering how to mantain my personal style and be pregnant. The reason why this is relevant to me is because I find pregnancy one of the most beautiful states a woman can go through, and therefore I want to wellcome it the best way and feel beautiful and more importantly, to feel like ''myself''. I have a hard to describe style, but it is something in between hippie, gipsy, folk and vintage, or better saying a combination of aspiring to all those styles at the same time hahahaha.
Or maybe I am just describing the styles that are most appealing to me, and in the end my style is just a combination that comes from my personal taste and my day mood (adding to this the fact that I only buy bargains and I have no problem in wearing things that have nothing to do with the above mentioned style)

Anyway, I a general way I find pregnancy clothes a bit too serious and neutral for my taste. It seems that they are made to make us look pretty and respectable instead of looking as though someone who is celebratring life. My mom bought me some pregnant clothes for christmas, and though they are cute, they are all cream and dark blue, plain or with stripes. I am thinking about ways to jazz them up, making them look maybe a bit more....folk? For me there is so much poetry and romanticism in being pregnant, and I feel so connected to the nature that I can imagine going through it as if I wanted to disappear! That is why I started the year wearing a silver long dress :P A bold option maybe, but everybody commented I looked beautiful and my sister in law said I looked like a mermaid ;)

Pictures to follow!
