quotes


When I feel like I'm lost and forget my purpose, the core of my life I find quotes that inspire me relaxing,empowering and a reminder of who I am, who I want to be and what I want to do with my life. Roller coasters come and go. Turn up the music and do something that amuses you. Be creative and surround yourself with people who believe in you & support you; remember that they are your number one source of strength after yourself.



Magic lives within you always keep that in mind.

Austria, travel


Hello everyone! I hope you've all had a blast this Christmas and I wish you all a Happy New Year! 2016 was kind of harsh for me and as I've seen for most people. Nevertheless, last year I had some good & unforgettable moments too. Lots of them took place at the end of that year in Austria. I have to admit that this trip which lasted for only 4 days gave me the chance to return home more open-minded,tolerant & accepting. I learned few awesome facts about Austria and its history, found out another facet of my traveling buddy's personality; a friend of mine who I have known for more than 2 years and was taught that sometimes friends might need you to be confident for them as stupid as it may sounds. I found a piece of myself in Austria and I I feel the need to find the rest of them in other places. I guess that means more travelling for me. I want to visit places and meet new people,idiosyncrasies, learn new languages, other cultures,religions and enrich my mind with experiences.



This is the view of Vienna from the top of the Giant Ferris Wheel, one of Vienna’s most famous symbols. The wheel as well as the museum "Madame Tussauds" are located in Prater also called Wurstelprater, an amusement park for many, a place taken out of a fairy tale for me.



Cheers! While me & my friend were in Vienna we went to Palais Auersperg and watched a concert. The orchestra played pieces from Mozart to Johann Strauss. The building is like a palace and makes you feel special, as though you belong to the royal family and this is a typical Friday night when you go to watch the best orchestra in the kingdom perform only for your eyes to watch and your ears to listen.



"I am enough of an artist to draw freely upon my imagination. Imagination is more important than knowledge. Knowledge is limited. Imagination encircles the world."

Empress Elisabeth of Austria, known as "Sisi". Such beauty.


Baden! And yes everyday I would eat pizza. There was literally no time for us to go to a restaurant and eat, so we would grab a piece of pizza to satisfy our hunger. The only time we sat at a restaurant to eat was in Saltzburg and guess what....we ate pizza.


Besides Vienna we also visited St. Gilgen.

And of course Saltzburg. A dreamy place. A traditional place full of stories & memories.


I had an amazing time in Austria. And I do not regret this trip a bit. In fact, I'm planning to visit Austria again, because there are so many places I want to see again and much more I haven't seen at all. I highly recommend you visiting this heavenly & magical country. Next stop: Who knows!

Christmas, travel, Bulgaria


Last Christmas I visited Bulgaria. An underestimated country which holds a haunting beauty. I specifically went to Sofia and Borovets, I have also visited Bansko in the past. I have to say that Borovets is by far my favourite because of its forest and the skiing resort. I wish I had stayed a little bit longer and had more time to observe,feel & enjoy this place. Nevertheless I had a blast with my family in Bulgaria those four days. Here are some photos I took while I was there.



These pictures where took in Sofia. I have a lot more but I already uploaded too many in this post. So, if you wish to see more just visit my flickr: https://www.flickr.com/photos/103004439@N08/ or my facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/erawtos/


The rest are from Borovets. Fell in love with this place!

And there's my mom down in the right corner hah

This lake looked like it had escaped from a fairy tale as well as the whole forest.

Our view from the resort in Borovets.

Hey sister! 

Wish I could live in here!


This is the view from the hall in the second floor of the apartment we stayed at. Loved it. If you would like to see the whole apartment and you're interested in visiting comment down below. ♥


Next stop: Vienna, Austria!!!

music, Christmas


Hello December! Christmas is near, my favorite time of the year. All the shops are decorated and I'm starting to get myself in the mood by lighting candles, lighting up the fireplace and listening to Christmas songs. From my perspective, there is nothing that can offer you the warm and coziness that Christmas Time provides you with. “Our hearts grow tender with childhood memories and love of kindred, and we are better throughout the year for having, in spirit, become a child again at Christmas-time.” ― Laura Ingalls Wilder . In my family we actually have a Christmas-time-tradition; to gather one Christmas night, light up the fireplace, drink hot chocolate, eat and watch old videos of when me and my siblings were younger. Here is my Christmas playlist:

Enjoy the music!

fireplace, reading

What is a better way to read than sit in front of the fireplace in your pajamas? For me there's no better way. That's why yesterday I lit the fireplace , sat in the most comfortable neoclassic armchair in the house and read the "The Glass Menagerie", a memory play. A great piece of art written by Tennessee Williams and narrated by Tom, my favorite character; an inquiring mind that yearns for adventures.

Heres's my favorite quote of Tom in the play:

“Yes, movies! Look at them — All of those glamorous people — having adventures — hogging it all, gobbling the whole thing up! You know what happens? People go to the movies instead of moving! Hollywood characters are supposed to have all the adventures for everybody in America, while everybody in America sits in a dark room and watches them have them! Yes, until there's a war. That's when adventure becomes available to the masses! Everyone's dish, not only Gable's! Then the people in the dark room come out of the dark room to have some adventures themselves — Goody, goody! — It's our turn now, to go to the south Sea Island — to make a safari — to be exotic, far-off! — But I'm not patient. I don't want to wait till then. I'm tired of the movies and I am about to move!”

― Tennessee Williams, The Glass Menagerie

hair, products, beauty

I've always had problems finding satisfying products for my hair. So after trying a lot of hair masks and frizz tamers I finally found the right ones for me. If your hair is frizzy and dry damaged like mine then you should definitely try out the following products:



1. Garnier Fructis Strength & Shine Shampoo


I've tried a lot of anti-dandruff shampoos due to my dandruff problem but all of them did the exact opposite of what they were supposed to do, they worsened it. I was so disappointed that I started trying out a variety of shampoos. The Garnier Fructis shampoo thankfuly worked quite well for me as I noticed improvement to my scalp's dandruff issue. So even though this product is not anti-dandruff it worked out for me just fine.



2. Aussie 3 Minute Miracle for Frizzy Hair


Since my hair is naturally frizzy I've tried out tons of anti-frizz shampoos but I was not satisfied with any of them. Few months ago I came across Aussie's 3 Minute Miracle mask for frizzy hair and I saw that the majority of people recommended it so I decided to try it out. It ended up being my favourite one,it smells like bubblegum,it is extremely cheap & most importantly it combats frizz like a pro.



3. SCHWARZKOPF Gliss Hair Repair


Due to the fact that my hair is frizzy and I couldn't tame it before trying out the Aussie's product above, I used to straighten them a lot. By doing that I damaged them so I went and tried out a few masks. The Gliss Hair Repair worked better for my hair. So If you want a mask for dry damaged hair this could be the one for you since it promises to make your hair smooth,shiny & healthy.



4. Pantene Expert Collection Keratin Repair


For the reason I noted above I started searching for a hair therapy creme. I came across Pantene's Expert Collection Keratin Repair and decided to try it out. From the very first application I loved it, it smells fantastic and gives my hair a smooth & shiny look. It helps the hair's keratin structure and gives your hair a moisturized feel. I usually apply this before straightening my hair & after.



Tell me in the comments below if you tried out any of this products and if you did express your thoughts about it in the comment section down below.
