tic tac tic tac

two days left. only two days left. oh, i'm happy and i'm feeling like a child again. i love that feeling. the feeling of wanting to wake up at 7.am, dance. watching disney. singing carols until you loose your voice. wearing red, red, red. dream about fairies, elves, santa and snow. eating chocolate and gingerbread cookies all day long. read as much as i want. making presents.
yesterday, my friend and I had a surprise party for a friend. she has always wanted to go to africa, and we took her there. we ate south african food, ate on the floor, wore african clothes, listened to african songs, and watched out of africa, a moive about karen blixen's life. it was a wonderful evening.
i love this photo. the colours, the outfit and the girl. she looks fantastic. and her style is very laid-back. when i'm going to paris, i keep mentioning it in every post.., i hope i will see a lot of women like her!

aw, i love the african party for your friend, that sounds so fun. =]it reminds me of a scene in the movie "Definately, Maybe" , they do something similar to that.
and your welcome for following your blog, it's a great read.

Anna Karenina said...

Yes, I bought it ;) But they only had it in yellow and orange, so I bought it in yellow :/ I wanted it in green!

That sounds lovely! I have to go away for some days, though (Saturday to Wednesday), but other than that I'd love to! What are you doing on New Year's Eve, by the way?
