yesterday was a beautiful day for riding, the weather was amazing. After we finished the instructor asked me if i was interested in jumping. I cant say i'm not going there as im quite excited about it, but im a little worried since i've seen horrifying videos on youtube of people shooting out of their saddles while jumping.
It is fascinating to watch people jump though, it has some kind of harmony going on between the horse and rider in that few seconds they soar in.
Show Jumping Made Easy: The Way to Successful Show Jumping (Understanding Your Horse), by Clarissa L. Busch seems like a good source of tips for a newbie to jumping.

I have always had a craze for pretty+chic gadgets. I decided to list a few of my favs :

1.My all time favorite has been a pink smeg fridge. A Scandanavian master piece.

2.Current fav. ? MACBOOK AIR! I recently recieved an email describing Steve Job's brilliant promotion strategy for it. It's unbelievably slim and ultra chic.

3.A pink vertu constellation.seriously the prettiest gadget ever.

4.severe necessity, a light switch beside my bed.

5.a Celestron NexStar 6 SE Telescope, sky astronomy viewer. i just love star-gazing*

6.finally, a horizon perfekt lomo-For perfekt photos.

color palette

im currently loving whites,greys,and shocks of electric color. bright purple is suddenly appealing to me. But my favorite palette of all times is that of marie antoinette's. I just love everything about that movie, the dresses, the shoes, the food & everything else.
I'm currently searching for furniture to decorate my new nest with, which is why im deciding on certain color palettes. I read somewhere the best way to pick a theme is pick an art piece with appealing colors to work with.

style wise, i luv boudoirish/paris-rococo style combinations.

finally, picking objects with fun colors is the best way to accessorize and embellish. Macaroons,cakes, laces, and textures are great sources of inspiration.

i finally managed to make time to quickly give this place a much needed makeover. I had so many things in mind to write about but never really got the time.

The last weeks were full of surprises for me. First a last minute trip to makkah that was absolutely incredible. Its been a while since ive been to makkah in a time other than ramadhan. It was so peaceful and empty at all times which was quite surprising.

A few days later, my cousins and i attended an endurance race for the first time ever. We left home at 6 am and got there at around 7:30 when the 160 km race began shortly afterwards. It was amazing following those horses all around until the final round, but made me feel really sorry for the disqualified horses after vet checks. I'm sure the winners felt extreme victory after the effort they put into this.I learned afterwards that endurance weakens horses a lot, and could result in death of some horses. I wouldn't be comfortable doing that to them, although the race was really a beautiful experience.
I also finished my midterms, thats when i decided to work on fixing up this place.
as for now, i must put myself to sleep. a bientot.
