A Tale of Winter

A Tale of Winter

 My little frozen fairytale took place in Cluj, a month ago (it was technically still autumn, but the temperature was many degrees below freezing point). I was in town for a day more or less, but I felt absolutely wonderful and I wish I could have stayed more.

Although it was extremely cold, me and my bf managed to walk around a little and take some photos. We came across the cutest little decoration shop, Happy Decor Boutique, and did some early Christmas gift shopping . They had SO many beautiful things that it took me an eternity to decide what to get :))
 The fog and  white frost created mesmerizing effects around the quiet, sleepy city. I was fascinated and well..ecstatic, like a kid in a candy shop. I was taken aback at the sight of this frozen apple tree that looked almost surreal, reminding me of a Nina Ricci perfume commercial. Too bad I wasn’t able to reach it, as  there was a fence separating us 🙁
And don’t these pics remind you of scenes from a Haruki Murakami novel?
Hope you enjoyed my story 🙂
Are you ready for Christmas?

    whaaat? pictures of the places I go by every day, including a shop I sell accessories in? That’s a surprise! I wish we could’ve had a meet-up – the pics are great and it’s inspiring to see the city from someone else’s pov!
    happy holidays!
