dreaming of the magical rose garden

When I was little, my papa always got me roses and put them on my bedside table, so I would wake up to them :). Hence my little obsession with roses (along with many others).

On a nonsensical note, it's colder in my apartment than it is out on the streets. Hong Kong should really invent some central heating. I used to think it was crazy that people from back home told me that it's really cold in the winter when it's 10 degrees celsius (This is my first winter in Hong Kong in years. I lived in Canada for most of my life, so I'm used to -30 celsius temperatures). Now I finally understand why... 
I am freeeeeezzinggg!!!

Hope you're having a warmer Thursday than I am!

  13. gorgeous outfit. i love the jumper.
    anyway, since i've just returned from HK, i have to say that although back there it was really cold, i kinda like the weather, esp. at nights.
    sounds crazy but it's really true, such weather goes really well with the gorgeous city lights :)
