Chalkboard quote of the day

What have you been up to lately?
I've been packing suitcases, sipping on enormous amounts of bubble tea (it's my elixir of life in these temperatures!) and writing summer to-do lists. I have a couple more days here in Vienna and then I am finally going back to Bulgaria! How exciting is that?
Now that all my exams are over and I have some spare time on my hands, I can fully enjoy silly things like midnight walks (with the secret mission of finding the best lemon cheesecake in town), long anime marathons and even some drawing projects.
Speaking of projects, I decided it was high-time I gave our chalkboard a summer makeover. The last message had stayed there for far too long (with an addition of some extra difficult and long german words that I just could't remember). This George Bernard Shaw quote has been one of my most favourite ones lately. What about you - have you got a favourite quote at the moment?

Favourite Summer Fragrances

my favourite summer scents are: Calvin Klein: One Shock, Thierry Mugler: Womanity; Chanel: Chance Tendre aand Thierry Mugler again: Alien.
I have the tendency to always give my perfumes labels. I prefer to use different fragrances for the different seasons, with only one or two exceptions (like, for example, Alien. I can't live without it and still I use it just a couple of times a year for really special occasions). I pick light flowery scents for summer and since I always experiment, every single summer of mine smells different.
One Shock: I'm not going to lie to you. I picked it up because it looked too cute. I've been slightly obsessed with neons lately (anyone else or is it just me?) and I just couldn't resist the electric pink. Turned out that the perfume wasn't that bad at all, either. I would definitely use it on a daily basis.
Chance Tendre: My absolute favourite summer scent. It's delicate and airy and perfect for the heat outside.
Womanity: I love all Thierry Mugler perfumes. They just have this special something, they all smell somehow untypical and this one in particular is my scent. It's a little bit heavier and I can't wear it all the time, because I get a little dizzy (no kidding!) but I choose it for a night out or, like earlier today, for good luck during exams. ;)
Alien: Sometimes when I smell a perfume I've had once before, I have a deja vu. I am sure you've experienced it, too. That's why I adore Alien. Everytime I put it on I remember a very special summer, wonderful memories come to me and it's a great experience. I really don't use it much, but when I do, I make sure it's for something quite extraordinary.

Do you use your perfumes till the last drop and then throw the bottles away? Or do you keep just a little bit at the bottom and store it away somewhere? I always prefer to store some away, it's like storing memories, don't you think?

C'est moi François le français.

       *** François likes menthol cigarettes, sandwiches with mozarella and um... oh yeah, the ladies. 

Hello there! :)
I know i haven't been around much lately but I swear those German language exams are endless... I haven't had the time to draw or walk around town and take pictures but hey! It's summer already and it's all going to change. Well, after Monday, I mean. That's when my last exam is.
Ugh, what a couple of months it has been! I've started with simple german expressions like "Hi, how are you" and "Oh, I understand." and now I am talking freely (and not so freely) about Freizeitbeschäftigungmöglichkeiten. (okay it's not that big of a deal, i know... It only means opportunities for free time activities. But it sounds somehow impressive, doesn't it?).
As much as I like the rainy summer days here in Vienna, i just can't wait to go back to Bulgaria. Until then I will draw funny men like Monsieur François here at 6.30 in the morning and I will drink watermelon bubble tea. And I will try to show up here more often, too!
