Love Letter

Post Content


I caught myself in an ugly incident this morning, and some emo episode that sent me rushing to seek solace in probably one of the indulgences most of us enjoy, reading love letters.

Here’s one for you.

I wake filled with thoughts of you. Your portrait and the intoxicating evening which we spent yesterday have left my senses in turmoil.
Sweet incomparable Josephine, what a strange effect you have on my heart!
Are you angry?
Do I see you looking sad? Are you worried? …
My soul aches with sorrow, and there can be no rest for your lover; but is there still more in store for me when, yielding to the profound feelings which overwhelm me, I draw from your lips, from your heart a love which consumes me with fire? Ah! it was last night that I fully realized how false an image of you your portrait gives!
You are leaving at noon; I shall see you in three hours.
Until then, mio dolce amor, a thousand kisses; but give me none in return, for they set my blood on fire.


*Love letter from Napoleon Bonaparte to his wife, Josephine De Beauharnais
Paris, December 1795

In addition to being a military, political leader and Emperor of the French, he was also a romantic and melancholy.

Now that makes me crave to read a letter for my own! I send much love and smiles to you. And by the end of the day, I hope to get some lovin’ and a smile for me, too.

Have a lovely weekend full of sparkly smiles!

Hooray Thursday!

I don’t know about you but I am definitely a fan of weekends ! Those lengthy sleeps in the comfiest bed with the softest pillow, waking up to the smell of a delicious brunch are one of the simple luxuries in life that I wish for every single day.

Reality bites – I wake up everyday, rushing to the bathroom, not having breakfast at home, wishing that I got up to the sound of my alarm and hurrying out the door to reach work, if not on time, at least just a few minutes late. That’s my normal morning habit. Not to mention that work can be dragging most days so I couldn’t tell you how thrilled I am come Thursday.

Even before we reached those precious days on weekends, we have Thursday. The dawning of this day is like welcoming of the most anticipated days of the week. So Thursday to me, serves up a very good purpose — retain my sanity. Ha!

The previous days have been very hectic, interesting and full of pressure. And so, I wanted to share stuff that I look forward to on weekends or in general; or perhaps cute, wonderful, random pictures or quotes I saved and collected over time that I think are worthy to be shared, to be enjoyed or just to inspire.

Here goes…

I pretty much haven’t given up on the thought that I can dance ballet. Good luck!

Major reason why I love weekends — spending time with my B.

Longer sleep is only feasible on a weekend.

I kind of want a kitchen like this.

I love breakfast with you.

Movie marathon in bed is the best. Lazy much?

I need to tackle our closet. Closet monster attacked it recently!

Lace is love.

I look forward to having this peg for a photoshoot. Game B?

I die to have a collection of pretty whimsical dresses.
