Vintage black & white in Museum of Scotland

Museum as a dreamy shooting location? Everything is possible in Edinburgh!

When I visited the National Museum of Scotland for the first time, I immediately fell in love with it. Just imagine: enormous space, beautiful arcades and galleries, magnificent white architecture with some gold ornaments… And that gentle light, falling from the glazed roof.

My top 10 favourite fantasy & SF writers

“A book is a dream that you hold in your hands.”

Neil Gaiman

I am a total bookworm. I read a lot and that’s one of the most magical things in my life.

I love discovering new worlds and stepping into adventures through books – probably that’s why fantasy and science fiction are my favourite literature genres. But not only because of that. I believe that fantasy worlds and characters are actually reflecions of our reality, dreams and problems. And by stepping into them, we can learn more about ourselves and our own world.

Victorian Snow White at Liberton Kirk

“Her skin was white as snow, lips red as blood, and hair black as ebony.”

Jacob and Wilhelm Grimm, Snow White

A classic story about beauty and monstrosity, kindness and jealousy, innocence and hatred

A story about the girl with pure heart and her cruel stepmother, who couldn’t bear being worse in any way. We all know that story, of course. But what if it was totally different?

About keeping your inner child alive

… or how to never grow up!

This post is closely related with my 30th birthday and some thoughts, which have been with me that day. It was almost 3 months ago, but I’ve decided to prepare it anyway because of one important reason: this blog was supposed to be some kind of my own birthday gift to myself. I started to think about it in Decemeber, then in January I asked about that idea on Instagram. And then I just thought: now or never!

Winer in Meadows, Edinburgh

Winter has come to Ediburgh!

“A cold wind was blowing from the north, and it made the trees rustle like living things.”

George R. R. Martin, A Game of Thrones

Spring? What spring? It’s time for second winter!

When I am writing these words, snow is already melting behind the window and all I can hear is the rain, silently tapping on the window sill. But only 5 days ago we had really strong blizard here, which lasted almost 3 days! If I lived in a castle, I could totally feel like in Winterfell 😉
