Oversized denim jacket

Don't worry, you landed on the correct page. Yes, my hair is blue. "Why"you might ask. I asked myself the same question. You probably know that I was pretty conservative when it came to my hairstyle all these years that I have been blogging. I never dyed my hair and I rarely changed haircuts. So to dye my hair blue is very bold and unusual for me, correct? 

Well, the story behind this is that I never wanted this color. All I wanted was to cover my grey hair that was becoming more and more of an issue to me. I also wanted to boost my morale after being sick/in pain for the whole month of January. Easier said than done apparently because I went to a salon asking for a dark grey hair color and I ended up with blue hair. After 6 hours of being bored out of my mind at the salon (really, I don't know how women stand this) after 2 failed attempts to get my hair dark grey, I gave up and went home.

It's funny because I was really expecting "granny hair, but I got "my little pony hair" instead.
But what has been working out for me lately anyway?

Brooklyn, New York

My year is off to a good start. NOT. I am now in bed fighting a nasty cold and drinking more cups of tea than the entire United Kingdom's population. Well, at least I have the pictures from New York to cheer me up. Here are some I got while taking the ferry on East River that connects Brooklyn to Manhattan. Below you'll see two massive suspension bridges, each over 100 years old, Brooklyn Bridge and Manhattan Bridge. I could tell you that the best view of Manhattan skyline is from Brooklyn, but then again, I haven't seen the skyline from the Top of the Rock or Empire State Building to make a comparison. 

On the day we visit Brooklyn there were 16-18 Celsius degrees which made the walk across Brooklyn on our way back to Manhattan not only possible, but pleasant. In December it's usually bitterly cold and windy on the bridge, so we were extremely lucky to be able to enjoy the walk. 

Excuse me if I am not too talkative today, but I must go back to being miserable for the rest of my day. Gotta love flu. NOT.

Manhattan, New York

Tomorrow is the last day of the year. As I look back and think about all of the life changing events that happened to me in 2015, I can't help but feel an immense sense of gratitude and joy. This year was the best year for me so far. I was so busy living that I admit I kind of "abandoned" my blog. I admire my fellow bloggers who can keep up with their busy jobs, their personal lives, and still manage to find the time to blog every week. This is my only regret, that I didn't dedicate more time to my blog that has remained a constant in my life for the past 6 years. I will work on that in 2016, pinky promise!

Guess what? I have more pictures from my trip to New York to show you today. Surprise, surprise. I took these pictures on upper fifth avenue, one of the greatest streets to visit in NYC, nicknamed "Millionaire's Row". You can find here many world-renowned museums like The Metropolitan Museum of Art, historical landmarks and luxury stores, of course. 
The other pictures are from "The Central Park Zoo", the first official zoo to open in New York in the 1860s. I saw the endangered snow leopard. There are as few as 4000 snow leopards in the wild worldwide and I saw 2 of them. They actually posed for me, scroll down for the picture. Other endangered animal I saw here was, the red panda.  

In my next post, we will leave Manhattan behind and cross the Brooklyn Bridge. Stay tuned! 
I hope everyone will have a great time tomorrow on New Year's Eve. Here's to an amazing 2016!

New York City

This December was the best month of my life. I got to spend 2 weeks in New York city and if you heard the news, this winter was surprisingly warm in NYC. I am talking about 16-18 Celsius degrees. Lucky me! I was able to walk around the city for 10-11 hours/day and enjoy this city as much as possible without turning into a snowwoman snowman like I initially thought when I booked my flight in November. 

New York is the city you see all the time in movies, music videos, TV shows and before you arrive there you think you pretty much know what to expect. Boy, I had no clue what was going to feel like to actually be there. As soon as I saw the skyscrapers, the city lights, the crowded streets I felt so much at home I can't even explain. The hype is real! That's all I can say, the hype is real. I especially liked Central Park, taking a stroll through this park was the highlight of my trip, I also loved Times Square, Rockefeller Center and I will never forget the feeling I had when I saw my favorite play ever, "The Phantom of The Opera", on Broadway. I shed tears of joy. Best experience of my life, but this in another post. Stay tuned.

Flower crown

I am happy to show you my new hairstyle. I thought about getting a long bob haircut for some time now, but couldn't bring myself to actually cut it until last week. I still don't know how I didn't quit halfway through. 
Anyway, I am very pleased with the result and I hope you like it too.

Next week is Halloween. Who's excited? Not me. I mean, who likes being spooked? The same people who enjoy horror movies I assume. Weirdos! 
Also, those dreadful costumes, bleah! Absolutely tacky and unoriginal if you ask me. Everyone is either a zombie or a nurse. OK, rant over.

Let's go back to the pictures I took earlier today. It was such a nice autumn day today. My husband and I went for a walk in the park and of course I couldn't leave my camera behind. 
I just love this season, don't you?

I am wearing a Zara biker jacket, Zara knee-high boots, H&M dress and a Meli Melo gorgeous flower crown.
