In time you'll know the answers... For She is me

I've always loved to be able to see how people grow, evolve and change over the years. Nowadays it is quite easy to immortalize it through photographs, but is a photograph able to capture the soul of the moment? Don't you find it fascinating? 

Last night got me thinking on the matter and I started browsing old photographs to see if I can find just that in myself. I was quite amazed to witness that even though about ten years have passed by without notice, I did not change much in my appearance, contradictory to my beliefs, dreams and convictions. 

I decided thus to share a bit of my past with you darlings, for I believe that the past makes you understand a person better.







I am quite curious to know how you have evolved and how that makes you feel.
Feel free to share some of your assumptions with me.

Perfume sets the mood...

I finally can share with you darlings an item that has been on my wish list for a very long time. As most of you already know, I am a big fan of burlesque star Dita Von Teese, thus explaining the absolute need to own one of her perfumes.

This is one of the most seductive scents that has drifted my way; it features bulgarian rose, peony, spicy bourbon pepper and smoky wood, all draped by an enticing 1930's bottle with a black tassel! I cannot explain how feminine an act it is to press the ball atomizer and adorn yourself in these wonderful flavors!

"It had to be elegant, glamorous, sophisticated, sexy, dark, and mysterious”
                                                                                                                   Dita Von Teese

Perfume truly sets the mood and I got in the mood of crafting and experimenting again, as seen from my faux bob. The crafting part comes from the dress since this beauty is a couple of months old. I did not actually know what to do with it since I did not like the high neck or the way it fit my body, but that fabric was too beautiful to pass over.

I modified it during my spare time on Christmas and I am pretty delighted with the result! I need to spend more time crafting since I miss it so! This grownup life tends to become a barrier to my creativity, have you ever felt that?

Take this kiss upon thy brow...

Source: Google

I am just stopping by here to pay tribute to this astonishing man, Edgar Allan Poe. 
Today is a day,  two hundred and six years after his birth, in which I would like to celebrate his writings and the gloomy world they have created. A world in which I travel from time to time, listening to his whispers of dark romanticism, the rasping of the raven or the beating of the tell-tale heart.

Take this kiss upon the brow! 
And, in parting from you now,
Thus much let me avow-
You are not wrong, who deem
That my days have been a dream; 
Yet if hope has flown away
In a night, or in a day,
In a vision, or in none,
Is it therefore the less gone? 
All that we see or seem
Is but a dream within a dream.

I stand amid the roar
Of a surf-tormented shore,
And I hold within my hand
Grains of the golden sand-
How few! yet how they creep
Through my fingers to the deep,
While I weep- while I weep! 
O God! can I not grasp
Them with a tighter clasp? 
O God! can I not save
One from the pitiless wave? 
Is all that we see or seem
But a dream within a dream?
