DRESSING UP FOR A NATURE TRIP TO BUNICA RIVER
I think every opportunity to dress up should be seized. Carpe diem- seize the day. I like to dress up even when I'm at home or in the nature. Why should we wear nice clothes just for places someone deemed fancy? In my book, nature is by definition beautiful, far more beautiful than any place deemed fancy. So, it makes sense to dress the part. My home is a pretty fancy place in my book as well. What does dressing up mean anyway? I suppose 'dressing up' means different things to us all, doesn't it? For some it's more about clothes, for others it's all about choosing the right make up, hairdo or accessories such as pretty jewellery or a posh bag. My personal definition of it is doing or wearing whatever makes you feel dressed up or beautiful. In my case, it's mostly wearing clothes or accessories that I genuinely enjoy and that make me feel like a Barbie of some sort. A nice hairdo doesn't hurt either. I'm still struggling with iron and I found that braiding my hair makes my life a bit easier. My hair is typically naturally straight but with my iron this low, it is harder to manage and tends to get tangled. So, braided hairstyles come to the rescue. I always get asked whether I'm wearing extensions when I braid my hair. No, that's all my hair. Ever since it got warmer and sunnier, I'm protecting my hair and my face by opting for a wide brim straw hat. I do love straw hats. If you live in a Mediterranean climate, wide brim hats are absolutely a must. Fedora hats are cute, but remember that every extra inch on your hat reduces the chances of you getting skin cancer. The bigger is often the better when it comes to choosing a hat that will protect you against the summer heat. Speaking of heat, the day I wore this outfit was pretty warm. I paired this white tunics with a striped skirt, a cross over bag, burgundy tights and dark olive pointy booties. I didn't wear my engagement ring that day, only my wedding rings but bellow are some links that will take you to Jeulia site (maybe you will remember that I collaborated with them in the past) in case you're in the market for those.

Isn't it amazing how a walk in nature can make us feel brand new? I always find nature so inspiring. As an artist, I feel that nature has so much to teach us. As some say, nature is the greatest artist. It's so fascinating to observe this place, the greens and the blues, the water and the forest. There are also many birds here, so it is a great destination for bird lovers. We once saw a group of foreign bird-watchers with cameras looking for birds in vain. I think the cameras scared them or maybe the birds escaped from those bird watchers because they were not familiar with them. If you are a regular visitors, the birds are a lot more friendly. In fact, sometimes they follow us around, flying after us. There are some really beautiful birds here but if you want to see them, you'll need a bit of patience. Don't scare them with big cameras right away. Wait for a little bit and they will probably come to you. Now, when it comes to ducks, you don't need to be that patient. They are quite used to people feeding them or devoting them attention. The ducks are not shy at all. Last time we were there, we forgot to bring food for them. They pretended to eat rocks to get our attention. They deserved Oscar for their act. As soon as would look at them, they seemed depressed and looking for food but when we would turned away, they resumed acting normal. I always take offence when people say that birds aren't smart. Most of birds are really quite smart, all of them in their own way.
